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.)

Quick news alerts


This rating is for the alerts it sends to my phone. It is quicker than other news apps and that is what is useful for me.

Restricted news viewing


Somehow in the last month, this app has changed to limit live news viewing to the market area you are in instead of being able to watch your "home" news broadcast . This renders what was originally a useful app to just another marginally useful piece of software. If I want to watch local news, I'll just turn on the tv. Bad move NBC !
