I have this app on my iPhone and it’s flawless!! Love and depend on it!!
I was so glad to find this app for my tv streaming, unfortunately, it doesn’t work as well. I live in Wilmington NC so I really need to be able to stream my local news and weather in the mornings.
Not giving up on y’all you are an excellent news & weather station.

Please take notice of Wallace

I’m from Wallace ... but have you ever noticed that Duplin county is rarely included in any news, weather, maps, etc? WECT focuses on New Hanover, Pender, Columbus, Brunswick & Bladen counties. Wallace is a 35 mile drive into Wilmington. It would be nice to know we folks here in Duplin were recognized as valuable viewers as channel 6 news and weather are watched most prolifically in the Wallace area, and not to mention most of us in south Duplin shop in New Hanover county - ALWAYS have. I’ve always felt I was a part of the greater Wilmington area but feel we are not considered a part of you guys. How about taking notice of us? As a matter of fact, New Bern, Little Washington and Greenville leave us out too, but these areas are not as close as Wilmington ... New Bern does end its weather map at Kenansville but still get little reference to us - WECT does not show us on your map. Ha! Not funny!

New version is just garbage

Everything was fine for years then this new version was released. Nothing but forced advertising before you can read a news story. The advertising is usually videos that you must watch before you can read a news story. Also, when you get a breaking news notification it no longer takes you directly to the breaking news story in the app. Rather, it lands you on the home screen then you must figure out which menus to drill down to get the news story. This new version has absolutely ruined the user experience to the point that it is just unusable. Complete garbage. I now solely use the WWAY app for my local news.
