Tulare SD Tips

Local channels for the Tulare SD area via internet! Works on phone, laptop, or pc. If you don’t have cable or your satellite or cable TV package doesn’t include local channels, you can access them through the internet. Locast.org is a non-profit that can provide channels like KELO, KSFY, KDLT, PBS Kids, SDPB, and several other channels via their app. Search Locast.org in your app store including Roku channels and Amazon app store. You do need to create a login. Once installed and opened, you can go to cities and change from Sioux Falls to Rapid City in case you are looking for West River weather, news, or sports info. Use the same login for other devices.

For Roku users: Go to Streaming Channels (on left, up 2 buttons from Home) then arrow to the right and select Search Channels and install locast.org which will require to enter an email address and to create a password. Be sure not to use a password that is used for anything else! Write it down and leave by TV for a while. Maybe move the Locast.org channel up to where your most popular Roku channels are.

Heads up: Since locast.org is a non-profit, they can only exist through donations. They suggest a $5 donation per month to help them stay in existence. There will be occasional reminders at random times that donations are needed, but I haven’t noticed very many here in Tulare SD. These reminders could happen during a program you are watching. Although I haven’t seen those reminders as being a problem, some reviewers say they are. Maybe try it for a month to see quality and content and put up with the reminders, then decide if the access is worth a regular donation of $5. One reviewer gave $20 and found the reminders came back the next month, so maybe it would have been better for him to give $5 per month. I believe it can be done automatically if you feel safe about it. It is a new feature for Tulare South Dakota people, so let us know if you see any problems via our Tulare.town Contact page.
