Cannot see LIVE

I have not been able to watch live CNN. I can access the app and read stories and see clips however not able to see either CNN or HLN live. I deleted the app and reinstalled it several times.
The tech guy's advice:

Thanks for contacting CNN. We have found this issue is often resolved if by closing out apps that may be running in the background. Please see the directions below:

Please double tap the home button at the bottom of your device. You will see a list of your running apps. Swipe up on the apps in order to turn them off. Once you have closed out of all the apps, please try opening the CNN app again. If you are still having trouble, please try deleting the app and then installing again.

--did as told no luck...please fix.

Now it crashes with the new update . What happened to this app? I click on live CNN and the app closes, brings me back to to apps screen. ???


Keeps getting worse

If you want to wade thru endless large pictures to think you will get lucky on a story that interests you, then this cnn is for you. Me, I want headlines that I can read. I can read faster than the app can load. Not all video that I have to sit thru a pre roll. I'm here for updates and news. USA today is better than this.

Good job

Longer videos would be appreciated.
Or short clips "glued " together for a days review in a clip.
