Watch now news feature no longer allows you to view live? Why would I want to watch a previous news cast without choosing where to start or stop? Or sit thru numerous ads to see a snip of the news? Anyone cut off from abc27 while directv or other cable providers are truly left in the dark of our local news 😔

The app is easy to use. I don't like that there is an ad first thing. We get bombarded by ads hundreds of them every day! Please let us get to the weather alert, school closing, etc. first. Thank you. I love the morning show!

It used to work great. I can get into the app, but it freezes on stories, and then I have to close it and reopen it. Then, it states there is an error. Sounds like they need to better their IT department to be able to correct these bugs.

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
