Minimize screen feature. Where did it go?

This is a great app. I use it to watch local newscasts in other areas of the country that have breaking news. The reason I gave this 4 out of 5 stars is because the new update does not have the minimize screen feature anymore that will allow me to watch the newscast in a small screen while accessing other apps. Please bring this feature back which offers more versatility to the app experience.

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.

Needs a Bit More News Channels

I love how most of all of the streams are in high quality! Here’s the great part, though, since I’m in the ATL Metropolitan Area, I’m not only catching local Atlanta broadcasts, but I can also watch news stations from Toledo and Fort Myers for a couple of examples. However, some cities either don’t have much, or don’t have any channels at all. I’m satisfied that Atlanta has ABC, CBS, and NBC, but where’s WAGA FOX 5 Atlanta?? Also, I’m hoping updates in the near future could bring out more channels for more cities. Here are some recommendations that I (or we) would like to have.

- More Local Channels for:

• Fort Myers/Naples
• Miami/Ft. Lauderdale
• Panama City
• Tallahassee
• Tampa

• Atlanta (WAGA FOX 5 ONLY!)

• Cincinnati
• Cleveland/Akron
• Toledo

- Add Local Channels for:

• San Fransisco/Berkeley (Bay Area)
• Los Angeles

• Eugene/Springfield
• Corvallis

I understand that more recommendations are coming from reviews from other users, so don’t feel like your bombarded with channels that need to be added. Take your time, and remind us all in future updates, thank you.
