Live Stream is very poor.

Unusable for live stream.

Husker spam

I have this app because I want local news alerts. I mean, what else am I supposed to do? Buy a paper that comes out tomorrow morning? Actually sit in front of terrestrial television at a prescribed time? Use the competitors clone app (that curiously has the exact same notifications)? So, I'm stuck with this, although I do consider relegating local news to word of mouth again.

What's my problem? You couldn't pay me to care about Husker sports. It's fine if you really care, but I don't. Yet, probably two-thirds of channel 8's notifications are about Husker sports. Instead of the convenience of near real-time local news, I find myself constantly batting away every trivial thing that happens in Husker Nation.

Seriously, if you introduce a settings toggle to turn off the onslaught, I'll edit my review to five stars.
