4/15/22: Tried it again, and it's no better. Fewer ads more, but I can never find stories that I just watched on TV where they say "go to the app for more info". Yesterday was a story on cherry blossoms in NH. Searched "cherry blossoms" and find stories from 3 and 7 years ago. 5/5/20: WAY too many ads, many of which look like news stories. For some reason the search capability doesn't work. Nothing here I can't get from the website, where the ads are less intrusive and the search feature works.

This update sucks... I wish you guys would have kept the older version..it was more reliable and worked 100x better.. So many commercials now and no one cares about videos.. The older version was just perfect to see what's happening around in your local towns and all the important news and info was available at your fingertips.. Now everything is filled with stupid videos and commercials.. Please bring back the older version of the app that everyone used to enjoy!!!

This app was perfect back in 2018 but the updates they've made have ruined the live stream functionality. It either cuts out and stops mid stream or doesn't ever start the stream even though it's in the middle of the broadcast time. Now it's hit or miss as to whether I catch the news in the morning anymore since the main reason I use live streaming is that I'm not able to be in front of my TV at that time in the mornings. I need my Gil fix! Please work out these bugs!!!
