Customer Reviews

Watchup is Amazing!

Watchup is amazing! The perfect platform for getting a variety of local, state, US and International news - all in one place.

My favorite feature is the ability to change, add and/or subtract stations depending on what news you want to follow at any given time. Right now I'm following news in Britain, Israel and Russia. Who knows, next week it might be Germany and Uruguay!

Great app.

Love this app!

Downloaded this app as I was considering becoming a "cord cutter" -- this is even better than having cable news channels! The video sources aggregated within the app are not necessarily available on cable in the US, so it allows me to get a uniquely world-perspective on each story. I highly recommend the app!


This is a fantastic news app! I love everything about it. International news is great. Getting it right from the source, from an international country is even better! We should have unlimited channel streaming though. I hope channel streaming will be increased. But this app is great!
