• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello i just subscribed to broadcastify pro through the play store . in the description it says you have access to the archives but while trying to access the archives i was taken to rr.com and had to register. Then was taken to a page where it says access to archives are 15 dollars for 90 days. So what does the oro version of the app do? Is this added 15 dollars just a bait and switch type of thing or what?

I seen access to archives but didnt see the deceptive premium required. I received a follow up email that offered access to premium for 7.50 for 90 days but when i link over all it offers is a 15 dollar 180 day access. Whats the deal with this

The 90 day access used to be available as a mail in only option. Not too sure if that is still available.

No advertisements in the app.

If you are so unhappy I suggest you dispute the charge with whatever media you paid with.

But I don't see how it's a "bait and switch" when it clearly stated this...

As clearly stated in the app description on Google play, the pro version also lists this in addition to the features of the non-pro version.:

"- NO advertising or pop-ups. Fully uninterrupted listening."

as pointed out to you in post #5 above.

It is in the same description section that also clearly states:

"- Full access to up to 180 days of archives for Broadcastify Premium Subscribers (Broadcastify Premium subscription required)"

There is nothing there that could even remotely be considered deceptive in any way, shape, or form.
