Ratings and Reviews

Walker-team ,


Contrary to other ratings, this is a most unreliable news app. Despite having excellent WiFi, the SABC News App gets stuck for hours without updating the news items. Other apps selecting SA news are far more reliable and informative.
A good word: the radio channels are a pleasure catering for a wide spectrum of interest.
Not so good: Unfortunately, SABC TV News has become stereotypical.
The SABC news app and the TV News need reviewing.

Useless app

This app is designed poorly and the app does not provide good feedback to the user. Lazy loading at weird times. Look at the mobile screen space when using components such as videos. Can you look at material design principles and rules when using tabs and how to use them. Content hierarchy is bad and the entire global navigation is weird

Excellent App

I have no challenges with my app. I’ve been using this app in New York to stream my favorite shows without any hustles!
