Ratings and Reviews
Too much down time
While we have always loved the morning news, weather, and traffic from Channel 7, when we use the app, there is too much down time. When you try to open the "live" news, get ready to endure a 30 second commercial and maybe you get the live feed. There is no feed during the commercial breaks unless it is a local vendor. You may wait almost fifteen minutes until any news comes back. Try another station, you may have better luck.
Thanks WXYZ for helping realize how much news one gets during a broadcast compared to how much time is spent on commercials.
Best news app
We spend our winters in Florida and the channel 7 news app goes right with us. I can know what's going on at home, both with the weather and news - it is the best news app around and I always know what's happening at home! I do wish the videos aren’t at the beginning as there’s times I just want to read the article.
Thank you guys for finally adding a location option for While Using! I had it disabled because it drained my battery because it was always or never. It's not really necessary to use it unless the app is open, so thanks for realizing that!
