Cosigning this. Locast gives an option to donate $5 or $10 a month. The only difference is $10 is for chumps. Literally, that is the only difference.

I get exactly 1 e-mail a month: a receipt.

I suppose that depends on how you feel about supporting the effort. (My primary concern is of them getting sued out of existence since their model isn't entirely different than Aereo's. They are already getting legal flak from the networks.)

You can prepay a year for $50, too, can't you?

/nope, apparently I'm wrong
//tho it does save the 50 cent processing fee
///props to them for sending a receipt tho
////whoa, apparently Seattle has a Buzzr affiliate now. Subchannel of Q13, 13.4.
/////would be nice if Buzzr themselves would share this information with the world

Oh.  Oh.  I have lived up here since August and work at one of the competitors and somehow am just learning this *in this very thread*

That's because KCPQ became a FOX O&O just last year, which explains the new Buzzr clearance.

I'm surprised that FOX has allowed them to keep their 40+ year branding as "Q13", instead of being branded as "FOX 13" (the "Q" in their current logo is a pretty big nod to their original 80s-era "Q").

Didn't know this; welcome to the 'hood. Yeah, I learned looking at Locast's channel list. Nothing on Buzzr's site at all, and Comcast doesn't appear to have picked it up yet, even though they seem to carry the other subchannels in the market.

Which competitor, if I may ask?

I made a quick search on my Comcast guide after seeing this.  I was all excited for a bit until I realized it hasn't been picked up on cable just yet.

 And to whoever unofficially named that certain Showcase music cue, "Nothing But Furniture"....

Every time I hear it now I have those three words going through my mind ad nauseum.

Damn You!

I ought to look up the unofficial lyrics to it that were on Tony Harrison's site years ago.

Along similar lines, am I the only one who sings his own lyrics to the consolation prize music every time...

"It's time to go,
end of the show.
Go back and sit,
You didn't win s**t--
except this stuff
you see right now.
That's all our bud-
get will allow..."

Have new shows been added into the rotation? I'm watching now, and there are balloons all over the set, which I'm guessing is for the opening week of the 1983-84 season. There's also a playing of the Phone Home Game, and I saw Deluxe Dice Game a couple nights ago.

The first 200 shows that they have been running went up through the first 3 shows of Season 12.

Asked and answered. Thanks. Hopefully they bolster the rotation soon, though I'm not really expecting it.

EDIT: It appears I could have also found my answer a couple pages back in this thread, were my brain still functional.
