Best news app ever!

I have been wanting to find an app that lets me watch the news for a long period of time...which I didn't think it would be so hard to find, but every app I tried cut the hour news into 2 minutes segments on each story. I didn't want to stop what I was doing every 2 minutes just to push play on the next video.
I'm so happy I finally found NewsON. I just have to press play once and I get my local new for entire hour without any interruptions! It doesn't matter what time it is or where I am. I'm am very pleased!

As a news junkie, I love this app

Love to get the local view on breaking news stories, also great to keep in touch with what’s going on back home when traveling. Video quality is poor on some stations, flawless on others, but always watchable.
Some stations are only available when live, others will fall back to latest previous broadcast, which is helpful. Also no Apple TV app? Roku app is klunky but functional, I’m sure Apple TV could handle it better. I hate tying up my phone to use AirPlay.

I like this but there are some mistakes

I like it. You made a few mistakes with wten tv. Their weekday schedule that is wrong is their mornings it is on from 4:30am-9:00am their 4 o'clock is from 4:00pm-5:00pm and they have a 7 o'clock newscast from 7:00pm-7:30pm and their 11 o'clock news is from 11:00pm-11:35pm. Their weekend schedule is 6:00am-8:00am and then 9:00am-10:00am and they are on at 6:00pm-6:30pm and 10 o'clock from 10:00pm-11:00pm and 11 o'clock from 11:00pm-11:35pm. And wnyt live at six on the weekend is fro 6:00pm-6:30pm
