No sound with iPhone

I’m not sure why but all the videos play without sound. The rest of the app is useful in providing new local stories every 24 hours.

No live TV

I downloaded this app thinking there would be an option to watch a live stream of ABC7 but could not find that option. There are features to watch clips though. The website’s live player works poorly on a mobile device, so my only option right now is either my computer at home through my cable provider’s website, or on the physical TV.

Please consider allowing XFinity to stream ABC7 to mobile devices even when they are not connected to their home WiFi. Thank you.

Notifications do not link to actual story

Why send me a notification and want to me read more only for it not to link to the actual story. Taking me to the main splash page of the app and forcing me to search for the story is not helpful.
