The bottom of the screen is covered by an ad and the top is covered by the Fox 2 banner. th is is OK if you want to listen to the news and not watch it but I enjoy watching the news. What's more the app keeps stopping and when I go back into the Live Stream I have to deal with the commercials all over again when I know that the live on air program is not at commercial break. If there was a way to rate this app at zero stars that is where it would be right now. When it is fixed rating will go up.

I am a Fox girl who can hardly stand the personalities to begin with. I care more for news then opinions. That being said you can't watch the news broadcasts on the's some HD show which is truly awful and not news worthy. Most of the time lately it doesn't play the news just the well be right back screen. Until 9:00 when the nine comes on and I'm stuck watching people's opinions I don't really care for. I guess I can just read the news. Thumbs down Fox 2.
