Big problems & facebook login???

For some bizzarre reason i cant figure out the app asked me to allow
it to use my location to login to Facebook!!! I repeatedly have said no to this but it keeps coming back on to my screen over the news & weather stories i am trying to read.
I know these people who made the app are able to get on to Facebook in other ways so they really do need to check security for this! Its been going on for months now & i'm so mad about this i had to post this. Please NBCUNI fix this app!!! There are too many problems & bugs & glitches with it. i like it & i dont want to have to ditch it but i will delete it if this "allow NBC4 to login to Facebook allow or cancel?" continues i will delete the entire app!
Besides it takes up too much space!
There should be a different weather NBC4 weather app anyway! Its the weather thats the best part of the app! Also please update the location & timing too because rain & snow is always at my location long before it shows up on the tv & the App! Please fix all this!! Thanks!! Otherwise still a great app but get rid of news stories that are from 2011 & a long time back. Archive that stuff offline please. Thanks!

Cable subscription required

This is an app for a broadcast network station — that is to say, you can watch it for free over-the-air, if you’re in the right market. However, inexplicably, a precedent seems to have been set at some point, that “free” television offerings are not free to stream; you are required to be subscribed to a pay-TV provider in order to watch broadcast television live streams. I’m not going to mince words: that’s utterly asinine.

I guess they don’t actually want cord cutters watching their commercials... so I’ll just watch Hulu’s commercials instead. (Not that much more appealing, really... but at least it’s actually an option.)

App deleted.

NBC4 the Best News outlet in the DMV!

Switched from Fox5 and never looked back! Thanks for all you do, really appreciate how you choose to broadcast the news. You all really feel like a real family. On the weekdays, my husband or myself turn to NBC4@ 4am as we’re still laying waiting for the alarm to go off. We get the top stories, weather and traffic. Keep up the awesome work you guys, all of you!!!
