Turn the “break music” down!

This is a pretty good app for having on during breakfast but the break “music” is obnoxious. Turn the volume down so we can think, please. Thank you.

I LOVE KRON, but this app though...UPDATE*

Cmon what are you doing Nexstar???

•How about instead of signing up with an email.
You instead make it a 1 time in app purchase.
•Or run advertisements.
•You already have competition like KTVU Channel 2. I actually downloaded and used their app because it’s free but with advertisements.
•I as a consumer am willing to make a 1 time purchase to unlock a year of streaming for $30 BUT
It has to be through the apple App Store.
•Also if you can’t perform recurring annual charges on the App Store. Then sell fake credits within your app to allow people to do it themselves.

iPhone users have their accounts tied with apple. We don’t want to give up the main selling point of an iPhone, which is Privacy, just to watch local news. Sorry. That’s not going to happen.

You can now use and pay for local news with your Apple account. You no longer need to give your personal email to sign up. However you will need if you want it on all devices and computer etc. Great job Nexstar! Thanks for listening. Here is your 5 stars. And I’m a subscriber now.

The App Works but Requires Email Address

I liked the concept and the app seems well designed. But after about one minute it asks for your email and then to login to kron website. We have been burned by all the social media and google data mining, this ultimately looks to be the same. I guess you’ve got to pay for it somehow and selling ads isn’t working, so, data mine! Sorry kron, bad move.

Developer Response ,

The primary purpose of the KRONon app is to give people 24/7 access to live, commercial-free news video from KRON 4 News. In order to provide that service, there is a small monthly or annual fee -- much like a subscription to any other streaming video service. There's no data mining happening -- our focus is news coverage for San Francisco.
