Does Not Support Chromecast

I really like this app because I am able to watch on demand and live newscast in select US market. When it first started almost all channels that participated were able to commit to on demand news replay. Now select channels, mainly independent local news networks offer on demand news that were previously air live. Big network channels do not allow their news to be played on demand, that may have changed. The main problem now is that some of these newscast cannot be played back on your television using Google’s Chromecast. I don’t use Apple TV so I can’t tell if they also disable this feature on all TV streaming devices. I like that I don’t have to download every one’s news app as I only want to watch their news live or on demand. It’s a shame that Chromecast users are unable to cast it on their TV.

Hello from the future! We have a new version of the app available with new content features and an enhanced streaming experience. Plus casting works too! We'd love for you to try it out and let us know what you think here:

Working very good,

I downloaded the app, back in 2017, I love all of the news stations on here, such as Fox, 17 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and WCC,M 13 news here in Grand Rapids, one problem here, I turned the notifications on, but I’m not getting any notifications, but the good thing about this app is that I can add any news station, to my favorites, but I would love to be notified about breaking news in my area, I am in the Grand Rapids Michigan area, I would also love to see Wood TV eight, back on the app, pretty cool thing about the app, is that I can also watch recent news broadcasts, that’s pretty cool, but please fix the notifications, and keep updating more often and keep adding more channels, I’d love to see nine news, Australia, and seven news, Australia, and sky news, but this is a pretty cool app. Keep it up,

Terribly inconvenient

Love the concept of the app, but we can’t use it. We like to turn on the news and watch at our convenience and this app is perfect for that as long as you are going to sit there with the remote in your hand to constantly adjust the volume. But if you’re like us, you’re busy people & one reason the app appeals to you is the convenience of access it provides. You adjust the volume to suit you for the news, then an ad comes on & plays at top sound level, so you have to stop what you’re doing & adjust it down. If you do that, then you can’t hear the broadcast when it comes back on so once again you’re stopping to adjust the volume. For an app created for convenient access to local news, it is incredibly high maintenance.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for sharing this experience with us. we’re sorry you are experiencing issues. Can you please let us know what station you’re watching and which ads seem louder than others? The audio level of ads is not directly controlled by NewsON but we can try to address this with the advertiser. Please don't hesitate to contact us at for any assistance!
