Good App -- annoying at the moment.


I keep getting alerts that i should turn on notifications so i wont miss anything but nothing has changed in the notifications settings This has only been happening since they discontinued the weather app (which i personally am quite upset about). Nothing regarding alerts, both for news and for weather, has changed since i downloaded this app so im getting quite annoyed that the app keeps telling me what to do, like im missing some world-shattering info. I get all the updates. Please fix this and bring back the weather app. And please please get rid of 15 second commercials before every single news story, especially since some of the news stories are shorter than the ad. It turns me off snd i sometimes go elsewhere to get the news without seeing the same or similar ad 25 times.



I have watched channel 9 for years, and will continue to do so, however the app is frustrating at times, I receive notifications that I should use app to receive notifications go to my settings to be sure something hasn’t changed, which it hasn’t , so that is my biggest frustration. Enjoy listening and watching early news especially in mornings as I get ready for work!

Disorganized and lots of ad interruptions


I am a faithful viewer of KMBC 9 News and have had the app for some time. But lately the app is my last resort for any news related information. The stories are not in any logical order, you have to watch an ad before you can read or watch any story, and what information you get is very brief and not very detailed. Sadly I am deleting the app until they make major improvements. I will continue watching them on tv but not on the app.
