Breaking News, Live Updates

NBC is always the first of my local news apps to get notifications of breaking news, live updates, etc. - Literally, their notifications get to me minutes, sometimes even 5-10+ minutes sooner than my other local news station apps on my phone. Most of all, their live feed sets the bar. I have tried live feeds on ABC and FOX from my phone and/or iPad and the quality is just terribly inconsistent - continuously spotty, feed cuts in and out, etc. I will continue to use NBC for all of my news updates. Thank you for investing in user-friendly and reliable software/resources to provide us with an overall great user experience!

This app is almost perfect but not quite

I love the idea behind this app but the execution is just not there. You can’t do anything without the live stream of NBC freaking out! I wanted to adjust my screens light so I pulled down the utilities menu on my phone. When I slid up it sent me straight back to the home page of the app. I went back to watch the stream and it came up with a service error, which always happens. I refresh it and it normally will work but it’s more than just trying to adjust something and the app reopening. I like to rotate and expand my videos but it is so fidgety!! There is no place to rotate the screen or zoom in/ out, therefore you can’t see the titles on news broadcasts, almost all of the time. It is so frustrating that I can’t manually press a rotation button. I’m left with it broadcasted tiny on the upper part of my screen because even when it does rotate to be bigger it almost always will go back to its small size on the upper half of my phone, even when in a horizontal position. Oh and when it falls flat on a surface it does the same thing. As I have said previously, the idea is great but the little errors get super frustrating and the videos don’t load 80% of the time... I’ll still keep this app but with a little frustration. It could all be due to maybe a new update needed or something.

Love the App

I hate the thought that I waited to download this app during some really bad weather and I lost the satellite connection on my tv. I get all the latest news quick with the app now and love the fact I feel informed about local news and weather. I just wished this channel wasn’t so democratic I never felt it was so one sided to recently. Maybe I had blinders on and it took someone to point it out. Other than that I love channel 5 been watching it for 42 years. Wow it’s taken me that long to see what I see now. But I will continue to watch and now with this app I’ll see everything sooner. Still 5 star
