You may have read our post A Sad Announcement from LocateTV where we reported the closing of LocateTV on 16 March 2016.   Due to the outpouring of responses, we have decided to extend the life of LocateTV until 4 April 2016 and give our loyal users time to take note of their My Picks and find a suitable replacement service. Sadly this is only an extension and the site will still be shut down after this date.   Once again, we would like to thank our users and supporters!
