Clear Cache on Fire TV to Resolve Frequent Buffering and Other Issues

Sometimes the Locast app will cache data which may cause the app to not function correctly or cause the stream to buffer frequently. If you are having this experience on all of your channels or having issues launching the app, clearing the cache may resolve the issue.

1. From the Fire TV Home screen, navigate to "Settings"
2. Navigate to and select "Applications"
3. Navigate to and select "Manage Installed Applications"
4. Navigate to and select "Locast"
5. Navigate to and select "Clear Cache"
6. Return to the Locast app.

If you are still having trouble, please submit a ticket to support via the Help Center with the channels you are having trouble with.

If you are not having trouble with any specific channels, but are having trouble launching the app or something else is occurring please submit a ticket to support via our Help Center with details regarding your experience so that we can assist you further.
