ThereTV (free version)

ThereTV is a client compatible to the Sony LocationFree Protocol. To use this app you need a LocationFree Base station from Sony.

WARNING!!! This is a BETA release. It has still several bugs. It is NOT MEANT for production use.

WARNING!! The decoding of the Streams is done completely in software which means the CPU has to do a lot of work. Apparently some phones can't handle this. If your phone is not capable of running it due to heat problems, DO NOT USE THIS APP.

It was developed by reverse engineering the LocationFree protocol.

Sony did not contribute to the development of this software. They however granted me the right to distribute it.

WARNING!!! This software produces a huge amount of network traffic. Make sure that your dataplan covers it.

If you find any bugs please report them in the xda-developers development thread. You can find the link at

Supported Base Stations:
* LF-B1
* LF-PK1 (is the same as the LF-B1)
* LF-B10
* LF-B20
* LF-V30
