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.

App is good for 3 stars but could be a five star with less ads!

Love to watch the news on TV when I can. I do like the breaking news alerts on my cell when I don’t have the News channel on at the time. However the app is an excellent app to read but if you want to watch a video you have to watch like a 30 sec. ad for each and every video and most story’s are just a bit longer then the ad itself. Do like one ad for every 3 video stories or even better like 5 stories and make the app a 5 star!
