I received my access link and code, but it does not work.
Make sure you have cookies enabled in the browser that you're using to open the KPCC Plus link. Also, if you are using Internet Explorer, please make sure you have updated your browser to at least version 9.
If the code is not working on your iPhone or Android App, be sure that you have downloaded the most recent update for the app.
My access link used to work; now I'm getting an error message. What gives?
During the drive, please do not clear or delete cookies in your web browser while listening to KPCC Plus.
To limit sharing, each access link will only work on up to 5 different browsers or devices. After you have reached your limit, those 5 browsers will continue to work throughout the duration of the drive, but you may not be able to listen on new computers, tablets, browsers or phones beyond the first five.
If you feel as if you have not shared or used your link on 5 different browsers or devices, and you're still receiving an error message, you can email us at email@example.com, or give us a call at 626.583.5121.
