Enjoying the new Live Audio


I don’t have a provider. My access to TV is either rabbit ears or through my iPhone. So, there are a lot of programs I either have no access to or delayed access via a recording.

I am thrilled that NBC News has added a new live audio link. A lot of times, I don’t care if I can see it (and may not be able to), but I can stay up to date by listening.

Thanks for live access to some of my favorite news shows!

Pointless breaking news alerts

The Whole F'N Show

I grabbed this app, hoping for breaking news alerts. The configuration said that it’d be big news, important news. Then I got an alert about the olympics. Deleted the app. If you can’t configure the app to choose what topics you want to receive notifications on, maybe actually have the news alerts be important. If I want Olympic news, I’m sure you have another app just for that.

Too many commercials


I understand that commercials are how the bills get paid. But i just sat through several 30 second commercials in order to watch a few video clips of the Olympics. The “news” clips were uselessly short. One literally lasted less than 3 seconds. A 10:1 commercial to news ratio won’t work. Goodbye app.
