Jim wants to know how Locast can rebroadcast live TV? Leo says the key may be that Locast is non-profit and only takes donations of $5 a month. It's also in limited areas. The local broadcasters tried to sue them off the air, but they haven't been successful yet. But for as long as it lasts, Locast may be a great option when cutting the cable. If you are living in one of the areas that Locast is available, you can stream live, local TV.
