DirectTV Distrust ,


I am livid that DirectTV has taken Channel 9 off of the air. It is my “go to” channel for local news, severe weather reports, news about by small rural community near Odessa-Midland, and information. I enjoy watching NBC, especially The Today Show every morning, as well as, NBC News and several NBC shows offered in the evenings. Why is this such an issue every year when DirectTV and Channel 9 are negotiating their contract? I am wondering why Direct TV is so difficult to deal with. Maybe I need to consider other options, rather than DirectTV for my television service.

NewsWest9 covers it all!

NewsWest9 is the best news to watch in the Permian Basin. They cover all the stories here in West Texas. We enjoy watching Tatum Guinn as she has becomes one of the best news anchors from our area. Tatum grew up here and went to school with our kids. She reports on what’s important, the truth of both sides, and good news to brighten our day. We need to stay informed of the things happening around us locally & nationally. NewsWest9 covers it all.

Too busy

Thought I would get this app on my iPad and now am rethinking. Might just delete it. For the local weather (which is what I mainly use) is too busy. For any video, there was always a commercial first. I wouldn’t call that user friendly. I would have to scroll thru ads and many other items to get to My Weather. I’m not always on the recliner with my feet up with lots of time. Sometimes knowing what the weather is doing is urgent in West Texas. Not really happy with this for the weather. Maybe you could fix the software to be able to choose what the app opens in so I can view weather instantly and then move on to other things.
