What is this?

ThereTV is a player for LocationFree base stations based on my reverse engineering of the LocationFree protocol. Sony has granted me permission to distribute this app they however have not contributed to the development of this app!

How much does it cost?

The best thing is: It is free!
You may however send a donation to fund the development. If you want to donate, here is the donation url.

Thanks to Sony

I want to thank the people at Sony and Sony Ericsson. They were trying very hard to find a solution that would allow me to distribute this app.
While talking to them I really had the feeling that they are interested in small developers, and their recent opensource effort seems to validate this too.
