First rate news channel!

We always watch channel 7 news all the time because it is the very best news channel in Detroit! When we go to Florida every winter, we always have Channel 7 news on our phones and I also have it on my iPad so that we always have the news from home available. Great journalism and not FAKE NEWS!

All the news right in my palm, I catch up with the app more then I just sit and watch the live news channel, mostly cause I’m not always home to watch tv, and I get the notifications for the important things, the highlights, although I’ve lost complete interest, faith, and all in channel 7 WXYZ Detroit cause I’ve tried reaching out to them in need of help via Facebook they read it but said not a thing at all, so they aren’t there for people the way you’d like for them to be... (I bet if I win my case they’ll want to interview me then but I’ll refuse it completely and give it to some other station) but the app has been pretty much helpful mostly till I try to open the story on from the notification and it don’t take me to it like it’s should then you try searching and scrolling and you never find it even when it’s something that just happened and you try opening it right away, that needs to be fixed. So this is me giving those stars to the APP and no credit to channel 7 news.

Too much down time

While we have always loved the morning news, weather, and traffic from Channel 7, when we use the app, there is too much down time. When you try to open the "live" news, get ready to endure a 30 second commercial and maybe you get the live feed. There is no feed during the commercial breaks unless it is a local vendor. You may wait almost fifteen minutes until any news comes back. Try another station, you may have better luck.

Thanks WXYZ for helping realize how much news one gets during a broadcast compared to how much time is spent on commercials.
