NewsON - Local News Nationwide Reviews

    Does Not Support Chromecast

    I really like this app because I am able to watch on demand and live newscast in select US market. When it first started almost all channels that participated were able to commit to on demand news replay. Now select channels, mainly independent local news networks offer on demand news that were previously air live. Big network channels do not allow their news to be played on demand, that may have changed. The main problem now is that some of these newscast cannot be played back on your television using Google’s Chromecast. I don’t use Apple TV so I can’t tell if they also disable this feature on all TV streaming devices. I like that I don’t have to download every one’s news app as I only want to watch their news live or on demand. It’s a shame that Chromecast users are unable to cast it on their TV.

    Best news app ever!

    I have been wanting to find an app that lets me watch the news for a long period of time...which I didn't think it would be so hard to find, but every app I tried cut the hour news into 2 minutes segments on each story. I didn't want to stop what I was doing every 2 minutes just to push play on the next video. I'm so happy I finally found NewsON. I just have to press play once and I get my local new for entire hour without any interruptions! It doesn't matter what time it is or where I am. I'm am very pleased!

    Don’t let time tell me what’s on TV is when I want it or I missed it and it’s gone

    Like WIS there giggling and laughing at 6 o’clock in the morning and I don’t appreciate it but if I can get it at 4:30 when there’s news on what I want to hear OK someone needs to stop these people from giggling and laughing and playing games on the a.m. news they say we want to go you’re so full of garbage I mean there’s three idiots on there well maybe to the little girl that does the 430 news is good the rest of the ridiculous ridiculou

    As a news junkie, I love this app

    Love to get the local view on breaking news stories, also great to keep in touch with what’s going on back home when traveling. Video quality is poor on some stations, flawless on others, but always watchable. Some stations are only available when live, others will fall back to latest previous broadcast, which is helpful. Also no Apple TV app? Roku app is klunky but functional, I’m sure Apple TV could handle it better. I hate tying up my phone to use AirPlay.

    Great app but...

    This app works great if the news is on live but on the days I get home after 11:30 pm and try to watch the recorded news, commercials cut off parts of the broadcast. Example, when I watch the weather, commercials come on way before before the segment is done, interrupting the forecast. My local station is WLOS in Asheville, NC. Please fix this problem.

    Too many pop up ads!

    All I want to do is watch news. These constan t pop up ads make it impossible. It seems to have gotten worse. And they are the same ads over and over again lasting 30 seconds followed by another 30 second ad. Every time I fast forward to get past certain areas ads pop up again. I’m so tired of watching the commercials for the tennis channel and CW. I would gladly pay for an update that would eliminate these ads. As of now this app is totally useless and should not be downloaded on anyone’s phone. When it was working it was wonderful. Don’t know what’s happening.

    I like this but there are some mistakes

    I like it. You made a few mistakes with wten tv. Their weekday schedule that is wrong is their mornings it is on from 4:30am-9:00am their 4 o'clock is from 4:00pm-5:00pm and they have a 7 o'clock newscast from 7:00pm-7:30pm and their 11 o'clock news is from 11:00pm-11:35pm. Their weekend schedule is 6:00am-8:00am and then 9:00am-10:00am and they are on at 6:00pm-6:30pm and 10 o'clock from 10:00pm-11:00pm and 11 o'clock from 11:00pm-11:35pm. And wnyt live at six on the weekend is fro 6:00pm-6:30pm

    Good app for watching local news clips

    Wish it streamed live, but overall a very good app for watching local news clips. Getting better - stream is maybe 1 minute delay also like that you can watch local news for other cities - and 3 in a favorites list - very cool useful app - must have if you want to dump cable and still be able to get local news

    It’s good but could be better

    The app is amazing, very accessible but only one problem.... too many annoying ads cut off or get in the way of a newscast. It’s very very frustrating when there’s something you wanna watch when the news comes back on, but then you realize the news is back already and that commercial made you miss it. I hope News on fixes this for both Roku and phones, it’ll be much appreciated

    Update f-ed up the app

    I travel for work and have enjoyed watching my local news no matter where I am in the world. This has been a very useful app, until the update yesterday. Now streams fast forward for no reason or just plain stop. Relaunching the app doesn’t help. There used to be a 30 sec forward button now it is 10 seconds and doesn’t usually work. On the old app you could mirror on the apple TV no problem, now as soon as your phone goes to sleep the app quits. Fix this previously useful app.

    I never review apps but this app rules!!

    It’s great!! If you don’t have cable you can use this app to see the latest local news segment. And what’s better, it will give you the live feed and tell you what time it was throughout each part of the broadcast. That way, you can trust the clock on the news to be right!!

    A must-have for news junkies!

    This latest version is fantastic! I am a complete news junkie and almost every local news station from nearly every State is represented here! If there’s a news on air, anywhere in the country, you can tune into it! Brilliant!! Easier UI than before also!

    To much time on screen with station logo

    When i first installed this app it was great, but I have changed my mind because there is way to much time spent on the station logo and not enough time on playing the actual news. When it goes to commercials 2 will play then back to the screen with the logo, only to cut into the middle of the news story and then back to commercial. Please fix this because this is my go to local news app

    Something missing

    I love the newson app because I’m in an area where I can’t get my local news with an antenna. As a cord cutter, your app is great, but it’s missing something. Why isn’t there a native app for the Apple TV? I know that AirPlay works, but if your app is on the Google Playstore and Roku, then it can be here too. Please fix this and I will gladly give the star that I’m withholding.
