Breaking News, Live Updates

NBC is always the first of my local news apps to get notifications of breaking news, live updates, etc. - Literally, their notifications get to me minutes, sometimes even 5-10+ minutes sooner than my other local news station apps on my phone. Most of all, their live feed sets the bar. I have tried live feeds on ABC and FOX from my phone and/or iPad and the quality is just terribly inconsistent - continuously spotty, feed cuts in and out, etc. I will continue to use NBC for all of my news updates. Thank you for investing in user-friendly and reliable software/resources to provide us with an overall great user experience!

Keeps me informed real time

With our weather being so changeable, it’s great to be able to keep up in real time. Several times during severe weather I have been able to either delay my travel, or even change routes to avoid the worst of it. The app also sends info out about warnings. In addition the news team also sends out breaking news as it happens, including live reporting, and aerial shots. Can’t say enough really. Just keep up the good work! If I could give 10 stars I would!

NBC5 App

I absolutely love this app. It keeps me informed every minute of the day whether it’s about the weather or breaking news. Other weather apps that I have used either lock up/freeze or shut down while using it. This app always gives me breaking news first before other local apps. My coworkers always get breaking news after mine come in. Great job, keep it up.
