It’s Ok

But what really grinds my gears is when you send me a “notification” on a story, I open it directly but can’t seem to find the story I was notified about. What should be happening is when I open the notification is taken directly to the story. That’s why I'm opening it in the first place. To read more on the “notification”. But no, I have to look for it myself and hopefully be able to find it. Take me directly to the story l opened the app for.

X New Yorker in New England

I am so happy that I am able to get Fox Five NY on line. Even when I’m away i take my computer with me and I can tune in it’s wonderful. I am a former New Yorker and for the past nine years have been watching it every morning that I’m able, he keeps me up-to-date on what’s going on in the area and I feel more connected to the city. Thank you for making this possible I feel like I’m still there!

One issue...on occasion the connection fails and my morning just isn’t the same!

Font is too small and light; too many advertisements

Font needs to be a little larger and darker like other news (NEWS12). And too many advertisements randomly pop up. Other than that Fox 5 is my preferred news.
