Live button gone

What happened to the Live button on the main screen. It’s gone from my iPad. I have tried to delete and reinstall with no luck. Have to go to the menu drop down and find the KTVU Live Stream button. Little more inconvenient. Love this app. Watch the news every morning until ten. Best streaming news app and Morning Team in the SF Bay Area.

Review of News

I think KTVU does a good job. If I was to a few suggestions, they would be these: If a crime is reported where there is an image of the suspect, please have that image in the corner or background continually during that stories time segment. Instead you show me the newscasters pretty face for 95% of the segment, with only a brief 1 second of time to see suspect! Also show the suspect again as you break away for advertisements and at final end of the newscast. Also, if your going to do stories nightly on racism because you like the ratings, let’s stop pretending that racist are of only one group, expose the racists within all groups, not just the politically correct ones to single out. It’s only fair to stop all racism, right? For example, if you were to buy a 2014 green Prius, of course you will see more of that model on the road. The reason is your eyes and brain are trained to look for it, so you find it. So if your constantly told on the news that only one race of people are racist, you look for it only in them, critiquing there every word, there every action, glaring at them always with your own hate in your eyes, yet you are 100% blind to your own actions. Actions worse than what you search for! Same goes for KTVU news. Please expose all hate, and then we end all hatred within all peoples who have it. Thank you very much!

Great way to watch KTVU news

Great way to keep up with the Bay Area news even when I'm not near my TV. I especially like that the news is in full HD, and is available live 5-7pm and 10pm to midnight. Maybe other times too, haven't tried in the AM.

App has video clips of many stories that you can watch any time, but I mostly use the "Live" feature. Plays smoothly even on my old 3rd generation iPad.

KTVU news is by far my preferred local news. The others are OK but don't have the same level of professionalism and thorough coverage that KTVU does. KTVU touches on the top national stories, but their main focus is on stories that directly affect the Bay Area/California.
