Somehow unstable

The app somehow is unstable. After you launch the app, you can't view the live video. Sometimes it works fine and sometimes it doesn't. Even though you try to restart the app, it still doesn't work. Overall the app is a little shortage, but it works when it works.

Disappointed viewer

Since the KTSF station moved further south, and I can’t receive the signals from my TV, I have to use mobile app to watch my favorite Chinese news. However, I didn’t know this app is so terrible to use! First, more than often that I get frozen screen or no sound at all even though I have the pictures and the WiFi signals are strong! And secondly, I get ‘Out if market’ reading on the screen sometimes once I turn in the app, and I ended up deleting the app and reinstalling it, it really bothers me much every now and then to use this app to watch the channel. I am hoping someone really able to fix these problems, I am very disappointed and dissatisfied with this app. Period!!!!☹️☹️☹️☹️

Worked for me.

My wife wanted me to get a TV so she can specifically watch the KTSF Chinese news. That would of meant cost of TV, mounting, monthly cable, etc. Is that cost effective? Of course not. Besides that, I have a one and half year old son who will probably start watching cartoons instead of learning if the TV was there. Since my wife watches her movies on her iPhone, I decided to check the App Store and found the KTSF app. As a husband, I’m happy!
