Mostly good


I really appreciate being able to see the weather forecast video whenever it’s convenient for me. I also check in on the live feed when storms are brewing. Like others have said, I just wish there weren’t so many ads. I have to plan ahead to make sure I can get through the ads before the live forecast. It does seem like the number of ads at start up has gotten better and I appreciate being able to skip an ad, so thank you for that.

A Ok


Over all the air prefer ends quickly and nicely. But when accessing the live streaming of the news that’s where it gets very annoying. Do not like when ads pop up immediately when trying to access the live newsfeed, the return to full screen button does not always work and it closes the live news and puts those stupid ads. You miss part of the news forever how many seconds it takes to return to the news.

Back button goes away


I’m editing my review from 5 stars to 3. After watching videos, the back button goes away and you have to close out of the app and go back in. It’s annoying. When it’s fixed I’ll edit again and bring it back up but not until this little annoyance is gone. Otherwise, this is the station I refer to first every single time I watch the news. Awesome app, but needs a little work.
