Could Be Better
I like WTHR 13 tv news and watch it most of the time. But the 13 news app leaves much to be desired. First, 75% of the “top” news stories are repeated in the “local” news and “national” news categories. Why? Don’t repeat the same news in all of the categories. Some news and weather forecasts are left on the app 2 or 3 days after the day they occurred. Sports news stories are also left on for days after occurring. Remove old or outdated weather and news. There are plenty of new sports stories occurring daily. Update, keep it current!! Finally, my biggest complaint is when I am scrolling down, the page jumps back to the top. This is annoying. The other local news apps don’t do that. Why does 13 app jump back to the top of the page?? Are you trying to force me to take time and see the ads?? Improve your news app and make it as good as your tv broadcast news.
Full news staff on weekends.
I enjoy wthr in Lafayette, as they have a full news staff on the weekends. As opposed to the NBC station that does little things like “ and here is your local weather and they take you to a commercial” the WTHR station takes you to a real person and an update. I was disappointed when they moved the station, that had been there for as long as I can remember to some obscure number, and downgraded the video feed. I pay over $200 a month to xfinity in Lafayette and this is one more reason I will cut the cord with them. In a day customer service should be going up, it seems like they will do anything to see if you will dump them. Keep up the good work WTHR AND staff!

Thank you for the nice comments!
Ads are too long
For the most part, I love the WTHR app for keeping up to date during the day and when I haven't had time for a full broadcast. However, when clicking to watch a video or joining in for a live broadcast when getting a breaking news alert i find the pre-play ads very irritating.
When I get the breaking news alert, you figure I have to tap that to move to the wthr app, then tap the live broadcast option and then the 20 second ad comes up (which doesn't immediately load) and finally I'm in the news feed. I've missed a good 1-2 minutes of the broadcast - often the essential part of the story. Very frustrating.
