I've used this application for a few years to watch the morning news while I get ready for work. It was especially helpful during the Mediacom blackout, but recently, the live stream continually malfunctions. It's becoming unusable & I'll be uninstalling. Maybe it will be fixed in the future, but after several months of this, I've given up waiting.

The app doesn't allow me to live stream the new any longer. Very disappointed. Worked just fine 2 weeks ago and now for the last 2 weeks nothing. I hate having to watch Ch. 9 news because I don't much care for their news anchors and their weather is not very accurate. Wqad's anchors are great and their weather is more accurate for my location. My cable does not offer WQAD because we're right on the line for "coverage". Very disappointed. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, nothing.

Does not work. App stops before it even opens. It worked beautifully before and then it literally just stopped. Tried removing and reinstalling several times with no luck. Same phone, nothing has changed on my end. 12/10/21 App seems to be working a bit better lately.
