Alaska is big and vast. There are a lot of epic things to see and do. You can’t sit still, and nor should you.

Enter Airwave, Alaska’s first live streaming mobile app for local news and entertainment programming.

With Airwave, Channel 2 News and other select KTUU-TV programs can be streamed live right to your mobile device. Get the latest news, weather and sports from Alaska’s most trusted news source no matter where you go. Stay current without changing your plans. What a concept.

Oh, and one more thing. With Airwave’s Video on Demand feature, you can save programs for up to three days. Now that’s something. Imagine the possibilities…

Stuck late in a mind-numbing meeting? Not a problem.

Can’t get the TV remote from the kung-fu grip of your significant other? Easy as can be.

Trying to limit out by landing one more stubborn Sockeye? Piece of cake.

No matter what you've been up to, with Airwave Channel 2 News and other select KTUU-TV programming will be there waiting for you on your mobile device. Now that’s really something.

It’s a modern world, and we like it that way.

Now that we have your attention, here’s a brief overview of the programs that you’ll be watching on the fly with Airwave:

• Channel 2 News: Stream every newscast from Alaska’s News Source. You won’t miss a single breaking news update, feature story, weather forecast or sports highlight. Imagine being able to watch Alaska’s award-winning news team no matter where you are. Now that’s good service, don’t you think? For 60 years, Channel 2 News has been Alaska’s most trusted source for statewide news and information. We’ve prided ourselves on being innovative in meeting your needs—in fact, you can’t generate more than 20 hours of news each week, while also filling and several mobile apps with content without being innovative. Still, with Airwave, we’ve taken it to the next level.

• Channel 2 News Special Programming: Throughout the year, Channel 2 News broadcasts many special programs outside of the normal cycle of newscasts. From live Iron Dog and Iditarod coverage to in-depth features such as The 49th Report and One Alaska, you’ll get them all on Airwave. What’s not to like about that?

• Select KTUU-TV Programming: KTUU-TV has a spectacular lineup of syndicated entertainment programming. As Airwave grows, we’ll be adding more and more shows to the mix for your viewing pleasure. So, stay tuned.

Ratings and Reviews

Its not bad, but....


The app does what it says it will and video looks fantastic. Since KTUU is no longer broadcasting over Antenna TV this is a fair app to have as it enables you to watch the news. It's too bad though that the audio can not keep up with the video. Really, I am going to guess that audio is a good second behind the action.

Now the latest version is a large improvement over the previous version. Now the program responds so much better. I did find that if you are traveling and want to watch the local news from Anchorage, your out of luck! The app refuses to list anything stating only that you are out of area. That is a big disappointment when you want to see what is happening back home.

Because the audio lags so much I decided to give this app 3 stars while I feel a 4 star rating could be more appropriate

Can't receive signal when I leave Alaska?


I love KTUU, however it is a bit much that we're being told no service when we leave Alaska This is not broadcast TV, so where is FCC jurisdiction? Entirely bogus, since we can watch it on our computers. This signal goes statewide and my guess to Canada as well. So where's the beef on this? I attend school in Washington state, but don't watch Seattle news - now I can't watch Anchorage news on my iPhone? But can on my computer this is entirely without merit and nonsensical.

Love it!


I don't have a traditional tv, so I love being able to watch the local news live or previously recorded episodes, as well as getting a reminder for upcoming episodes. Thanks!
