Food segments

We love Fox 2 , but most of the interviews the fox2 people need to stop talking over the people. Charlie , El & Michael on sat. on the food episode s are very rude need to give the people their time. Need more time for food episodes and be allowed to do their demonstration. Love the food segment s, but they need more time. The fox2 people could not take so long giving their own options and give the time to the segments. We love the Fox2 people and station only one we watch. But very frustrating when we are interested in a segment and they can’t finish. More time for food segments and let them finish their demonstration now that I have vented we really do love everyone on fox2 and the station.

Good app, with good news! Except for the LONG advertisements that you have to sit through each time you want to watch a video. It seems to be the same adds for the same company for months at a time. Try changing it up and showing briefer adds? I’ve navigated off of your videos many times because I just can’t watch the same add again.

Terribly designed app!

HATE all the extra clicks, especially the ALLOW TRACKING just to get into the dang app!!! No other app does this! WHY does Fox 2 need to TRACK and collect info on users? Other major issue is “Watch Live.” It does not play immediately so you miss content, randomly switches to another live show or ads and you don't know what the heck you're watching which is so annoying, random “we’ll be right back” when its not a commercial, ads are awful and looong, and there’s volume control issues. Would expect A LOT more from a local broadcasting network! NOT a user friendly app.
