Full news staff on weekends.
I enjoy wthr in Lafayette, as they have a full news staff on the weekends. As opposed to the NBC station that does little things like “ and here is your local weather and they take you to a commercial” the WTHR station takes you to a real person and an update. I was disappointed when they moved the station, that had been there for as long as I can remember to some obscure number, and downgraded the video feed. I pay over $200 a month to xfinity in Lafayette and this is one more reason I will cut the cord with them. In a day customer service should be going up, it seems like they will do anything to see if you will dump them. Keep up the good work WTHR AND staff!

Could Be Better
I like WTHR 13 tv news and watch it most of the time. But the 13 news app leaves much to be desired. First, 75% of the “top” news stories are repeated in the “local” news and “national” news categories. Why? Don’t repeat the same news in all of the categories. Some news and weather forecasts are left on the app 2 or 3 days after the day they occurred. Sports news stories are also left on for days after occurring. Remove old or outdated weather and news. There are plenty of new sports stories occurring daily. Update, keep it current!! Finally, my biggest complaint is when I am scrolling down, the page jumps back to the top. This is annoying. The other local news apps don’t do that. Why does 13 app constantly jump back to the top of the page?? I very rarely use the 13 app because of that constantly occurring nuisance. Are you trying to force me to take time and see the ads?? It would appear so. Improve your news app and make it as good as your tv broadcast news.
New interactive weather map no good
I have enjoyed the channel 13 app for weather updates and news. I mostly used the interactive weather map. The map was recently updated and I can it get it to show live data when in “play” mode. It only shows up when paused or still. I have an iphone8 and have no issues with other apps. I have been using the fox59 app since this one no longer works for me. Please please please put the older version back on this app until you figure out the glitch. Thks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
