I do like the push headlines for important news stories, and updated info as they come out, I would like to get pertinent information as it becomes available, but more often than not, the "live broadcast updates " from Turner or Abbot, etc, just shows the thumbnail with the play icon, when pressed, all I get is the continuous spinning line of 'loading..trying..looking..' but not being able to play the video/news clip. Sometimes an earlier clip on the same page will play well, but not the 1st 1

Lots of improvements so thanks for that! Still have issues when selecting a notification about an article and not being able to find it on the app. Also , the push notifications are being cut off so where I could normally see a preview for what the article is about I can now only see half of the first line.

Hey Jackie, you can turn autoplay off in the settings. As for the push, they should open directly to the article, we'll take a look at that problem.

After reading some reviews well i kinda wish the video would play like others but this app does the contrary on my phone. It buffers the video and never lets me play the video and this had been going on for a while. I even went to buy a new phone (LG G8)a month ago for the same purpose thinking my phone was the issue but that's not the case. The app continually keeps failing in that part. Obviously if its android forget that this app will work at its full potential!!
