Notifications are pointless
While I don’t have a problem with the actual television station I am quite unimpressed with this app. When I receive a notification for a story the reason I usually want to read the story is because I am unable to watch the news at whenever time so when I click on a notification that takes me to the headline with a single sentence covering it telling me to watch the news at “fill in the blank” it’s completely erroneous. I understand in some cases perhaps the story is being updated but this occurs even if I click the notification hours, or the next day. It will tell me at 0800 to watch the news for the full story the previous day at 1700, with no other update to the story. On one occasion I’ve actually emailed the station for information on a story and they no longer had information. It’s like clickbait without even that minuscule payout. It comes off as a lame ploy to just get more viewers as opposed to being an alternative news source for their station.
News 4 Weather
Todd Santos gives an outstanding report West but Kaylie Went’s report is useless March 11 at 11:00 pm. She gives no direction or amplitude of the wind with no clouds that she says is going to bring cooling to Western NewYork. Todd always gives a complete and through report. He show what to expect in every portion of every county of western NewYork, through with how much snow and how it will affect roads for travel, melt for flooding, type and amount of precipitation, a clear and complete report!!!!!!
Thank you all for doing a great job telling us know about the weather before it gets to are part of the world. I named this spot because I feel your team of meteorologist do a fantastic job for us. Thank you once again from Allegany County for my family to yours .
Channel 4 and Verizon have the same union therefore Verizon (fios) never gets any bad press from chan 4. Never. Makes perfect sense, because why would they have bias stories about Spectrum. Every time there is a change or a rate change Channel 4 is all over it. Hello, fios customers get rate hikes all the time and pay some of the most outrageous monthly rates I have ever seen. Also, Fios has not expanded into Buffalo, Niagara county or anywhere south of Hamburg. But they love to run news about how “behind” we our on our line extensions. I think people are starting to catch on to the links between your unions and the news that never gets reported.
Problem appears to be solved
I’m revising my previous comment. The problem appears to be taken care of, or at least the pop-ups are not as frequent like they where, making it impossible to watch the app at all. If they could make the ones that do happen while the news anchors take a break so that it doesn’t interrupt the story you’re trying to watch it would be perfect like it was before.
I mainly use the Channel 4 app to watch the noon news. I have a lot of trouble with it not coming up or hanging in the middle of a broadcast. It may be due to my device or wifi, but it seems to mostly happen with this app. Another complaint: see ing the same commercial several times during a broadcast, and many times during the week is very annoying.
Don’t get it
What’s the point of giving someone the option to “disable” auto play on the video when it doesn’t work. Mine is disabled yet every time I click a story, BAM! People start talking and the video is playing. Fix it! Even after all these updates my app still plays the video! If this isn’t going to get fixed I will be uninstalling the app. Sorry not sorry 😐
I’m usually not the guy to give feedback on a particular app or website but the news channel 4 app truly keeps me up to date on current situations. I’m fond of this app because o never have any problems with it and always have up to dat information
There’s a lot of things happening in the world! All we here is local news about Kelly first. Then the weather second oh then you might hear local news! It would be nice to have current things on the app. Over the weekend it was the same news. While there are major things going on around the world unfortunately!
#1 news station
Kelsey Anderson you always make me smile , Channel 4 is blessed to have a positive and being from Erie county you know a lot more then the others from other states. I’m not saying nothing bad about them . But to me your my favorite...Thank you
The potential is there
The app is OK, but takes a long time to load past the splash screen, and before the requisite ads. When viewing many notifications, the only info written or available is the same as the headline that brought you there. And a lot of the news is only "news" because there's no other news. Which is probably a sign of a relatively healthy community considering "if it bleeds, it leads". So, in summary, it's slow to load.
Having a travel advisory/ban link on your main page is huge! It really helps making travel decisions without having to search threw 100’s of closing.
If I wanted to watch TV I would, just give the news.
I keep getting notifications of stories, go to read the story and all it says is to watch the news at whatever time it is. If I wanted to be stuck to the TV I would be, but I'm not a person who sits around all day to watch the news, that's why I downloaded the app to be able to read the news when just wanted. Too late now, I've uninstalled the wivb app because of the false notifications.
We love WIVB! All of it! The weather forecasters are spot on and are passionate about getting it right! The anchors present news not opinions. The sportscasters show a live for their work and teams! WIVB is a team in action not just words! 5+ Stars
Home Page Could be organized better
The Home Page has a lot of Subject titles or banners where the actual headlines could be placed. I want to view the home page and scroll down seeing the top news, sports, and weather headlines.
