I deleted when I tried watching a video of a robbery on the East side. Told me I had to watch 5 ads before watching. People are getting way too greedy with their ads lately. I won’t be bound to them. I could just watch on local news with less time on commercials.

Biased news -disappointing

Have had this app for almost a year but have noticed a crescendo of biased news reporting lately. Yesterday almost every other story was anti- President/ anti-American. It was so noticeable and disconcerting. Why can’t our local stations just report the news without leaning one way...& one way only! I realize national news has been leaning left for a long time- reporting only certain events, half- truths, and exaggerated stories many times not true.
I expected more from my local news and have always liked ABC6 but I refuse to watch
Or experience your app any longer! Your journalism ethics should be re-examined.

Video Irritant

The app works well and the content is good. My complaint is that every time you play a video news article it plays a commercial “for the WSYX ABC app”. The same app that I’m watching the news on. E v e r y single video article leads with their own app advertisement. Every one! I understand the need to have commercials, but really? The same add for the app I’m using...on every video. Even the big network apps give you a break from commercials after you’ve seen a few. Way too irritating to keep watching. BTW ABC 6 Columbus is my favorite news station. I just wish they would modify their app.
