Edit: Now a 1 star rating. App is worse than ever. I'd rate 5 stars but everytime I go to watch live, I get anywhere from 2 to 7 ads and I end up missing the weather or something important I wanted to see. Plus, once it connects it jumps 30 to 60 seconds. I get you need ads but the way they're done really ruin the experience.

New update seems better except for it crashes after the commercial plays. It either completely fails, does not continue with the newscast, or continues with no sound. You have to physically press play after the commercial no matter what. I'm on a Pixel 8 Pro so the phone is not the issue. Why can't it simply play a newscast straight through??

As a few others have said, if you like the *idea* of this app, but hate the current version, search & find version 1.6.1 and load that (and disable updates on Google Play). You will have settings to choose your resolution, chromecast support and the ability to pause, FF, REW or start from the beginning on live broadcasts. I don't understand how they could strip SO much functionality from the old version and call it an "upgrade". Current version is pretty much complete garbage.
