Ratings and Reviews
Average, but not beyond
VUit is great for watching your local news live or on replay. The biggest flaws are that if you use your control panel it’ll pause what’s playing. There’s no multitasking. If your alarm goes off and you swipe it up to dismiss then your program will pause. For that reason I’m giving a 3/5. IMO it’s the best way to watch your local news stations on the go without a cable subscription by far!
Great App for Locals
I’ve been using VuIt on Roku for years, and now on my iPhone. No performance issues, everything works well and how it should. Some reviewers complain that most stations have repeats of local newscasts when not airing the station’s news live. That has nothing to do with this app - its the local stations that do not have live 24 hour streaming news. Most local stations do not. Local stations cannot carry the network programming, but that may change soon with changing of how carriage fees are contracted. VuIt has a good amount of and variety of local tv stations, many that are not carried on other live streaming apps. History of updates indicates VuIt fixes security issues immediately, which also protects the app users. I do watch specific distant station’s news and live feeds when there is a major news event in their area, mostly severe weather events or other major news story to get the unedited and unspun real perspective that only local news can provide.
Totally irrelevant commercials
Several months ago, Vuit was unbeatable. It was a fantastic app to catch up on your local news, even if it was a replay because you couldn’t watch it live at the time. Now it has completely irrelevant commercials. Who cares about a car lot selling cars 400 miles away and watching the same 6 irrelevant commercials replay over and over? If anything, that’s a real turn-off for viewers. Now if you happen to miss your local news at the live time it’s on, you’re end up watching a news channel somewhere in Tennessee. Why would a viewer in Wisconsin want to watch a random news channel 800 miles away? Whoever is in charge of this app and it’s content needs to step aside and let someone with some common sense take it over and put it back the way it was.
