Ratings and Reviews
Notifications are pointless
While I don’t have a problem with the actual television station I am quite unimpressed with this app. When I receive a notification for a story the reason I usually want to read the story is because I am unable to watch the news at whenever time so when I click on a notification that takes me to the headline with a single sentence covering it telling me to watch the news at “fill in the blank” it’s completely erroneous. I understand in some cases perhaps the story is being updated but this occurs even if I click the notification hours, or the next day. It will tell me at 0800 to watch the news for the full story the previous day at 1700, with no other update to the story. On one occasion I’ve actually emailed the station for information on a story and they no longer had information.
It’s like clickbait without even that minuscule payout. It comes off as a lame ploy to just get more viewers as opposed to being an alternative news source for their station.
channel 4 Review
I love channel 4 for all the News up dates. The daily weather reports ,social and special events all through Erie County and the surrounding area ... I’m grateful for the interruptions of local stations when there is special announcements in remaining to bring forth the news around the world . It is straight News from the source or sources and not FAKE News. Been a viewer since I can remember and will continue to choose Channel 4. Every news caster and behind the scenes workers should be proud of what they bring to channel 4 News Thank You Denise Dominiak Fan of Channel 4 News
News 4 Weather
Todd Santos gives an outstanding report West but Kaylie Went’s report is useless March 11 at 11:00 pm. She gives no direction or amplitude of the wind with no clouds that she says is going to bring cooling to Western NewYork. Todd always gives a complete and through report. He show what to expect in every portion of every county of western NewYork, through with how much snow and how it will affect roads for travel, melt for flooding, type and amount of precipitation, a clear and complete report!!!!!!
