Wow! I love love love using this app. I am a millennial, bi-racial, minority, young professional living in the city of Chicago. No matter how much I try to get away from ‘em, it seems like I’m always using the big 3 media tracking corporations; Apple, Google and Facebook for my news. This makes for painfully polarized and at most times biased news.
I am so very thankful for this app and the mission of SBS as a news source. It’s unfortunate that I have to search across the globe to get objective American news. However, I am so glad this option is here for me.

Thanks for all the trustworthy information.

Video quality good when it works

The connection is a bit flaky. Sometimes you have to close it and open it again or close and open sections to get them working. The nightly news cast program just shuts off the app totally if you try to watch it. Good for getting short news updates while overseas.
