The App Works but Requires Email Address

I liked the concept and the app seems well designed. But after about one minute it asks for your email and then to login to kron website. We have been burned by all the social media and google data mining, this ultimately looks to be the same. I guess you’ve got to pay for it somehow and selling ads isn’t working, so, data mine! Sorry kron, bad move.

Developer Response ,

The primary purpose of the KRONon app is to give people 24/7 access to live, commercial-free news video from KRON 4 News. In order to provide that service, there is a small monthly or annual fee -- much like a subscription to any other streaming video service. There's no data mining happening -- our focus is news coverage for San Francisco.

Stupid app ask you to pay to watch !!!!??

I’m not paying for free press. Freedom of information. This is the stupidest way to generate revenue, just like adding tax to soft beverages even to the people who don’t drink them. Convert back to a free to view app or lose many followers of KRON networking/incorporated

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to write.

The new KRONon app features several new things that set it apart from previous apps, and apps at other stations.

1. It’s commercial-free local news – there are no interruptions to the video
2. The live video is 24/7
3. It includes access to a vast library of archival news coverage
4. With your subscription, you can view the content on multiple apps and OTT devices

As you probably know, KRON is part of a publicly traded business. Because of this, we have to offset the expense of providing a service such as this in some way. Thus, the nominal subscription fee.
