Why is this app only available for iPhone and not Apple TV?
I have a friend who would like to watch channel 7 Boston news on his Apple TV. I was able to give him the app to watch on his phone but it’s not available or Apple TV. The apps that offer local television do not include channel 7 or channel 5 Boston in their local channels so there’s no way other than on his phone or mirroring the phone to the TV to watch those channels and his upset to be forced back to $180 cable bill just to be able to watch this

Continue the hard work and addressing issues
The media needs to support the American people more then the government . From the president to all mayors nationwide. The whole government needs to improve at 100% in many different ways with health, financially, and safety. It has been all negatively impacted . So the media needs to bring attention to all these issues because its terrible and it needs to be corrected.

Update, Jan 2018: Edit: DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP - it contains malware and a spam bot. The developers have been made aware and have chosen to do nothing. The app (and the app for the money-strapped herald) no longer honor industry standards for dismissing ads. Shame on these apps for blatantly putting money before ethical behavior. Also, and more concerning... the app also tracks a users location, regardless of the setting of location services. This is a huge privacy issue, and not cool. Absolutely horrible. Content is old, and lacking. And, BTW, the previous version no longer works, so users are FORCED to update. Every single 'update' has degraded this app. However, do not expect the arrogant developers, or station management to care about user feedback. Now, more annoying full-screen pop ups. Plus, just when you are about to click on a story, an ad comes from out of nowhere, and you cannot get to the desired story. It compounds the poor app, when stories contain spelling and grammar mistakes. Were that it were possible to rate an app zero stars, this is deserving.

No coverage about local town halls & forced radiating 5G antenna placements
I appreciate most coverage here, but a huge health disaster in the making is being ignored: The untested for long-term health impacts of the 5G and 4G cell antenna going up everywhere without proper notification or disclosure. Same for (not) “Smart” Broadcasting ) Meters that also pulsate high amounts of radio frequency radiation /according to high Tech instrumentation used by industrial building biologists -that tell us we are now being forced to live in the “cancer zone.” This is the invisible pollution that is not being covered most likely because of Industry influence. and that is a tragedy.

Review of Seven News
Seven News is the best station in New England. All of the staff are professional, articulate, and knowledgeable. I count on WHDH for all my news, weather, and sports coverage. I congratulate all the staff, as you’re number one in my opinion. Thanks, and please share this with all of your employees, as it takes a real team to be as successful as Seven News!!!

Old news
I expect online newspapers to be static. Don’t understand why I’m not seeing more real time news on this site. For example, we were scoping out what to do on first night and the newsfeed was at least 45 minutes behind actual events. Otherwise, good reporting, particularly local. Thank you.

Why I get the latest news from Channel 7 Newsroom.
Channel 7 News is Great. It’s a good source that I can rely on 7 Days A. Week. If I’m looking 4. Information on the C-19 Virus. And the level of The closings for my local cities and nearby towns I will have to turn to Channel 7. For the best And most reliable source for that information.

Audio starts w/o a prompt
I like the variety of the stories but have no patience for having to stop the audio/newsreels. I’ve already deleted this app twice because of this. The selection for the locations for local news is better than the other stations. I just can’t look at the stories in a waiting room.

This app was good. Not great but it did its job a few years ago. I understand the need of ads and what not but now the same annoying ad that’s on the bottom of the screen (tolerable) now jumps up and covers the entire screen as you’re reading completely disrupting your imaginative state. This app is the worst. Hasn’t improved one bit, misspells, isn’t always accurate as the same story changes 2-3 times...etc etc etc

Too far left
Whdh reports information which supports liberals. I am tired of the trump bashing. I am tired of the news media incriminating our entertainers and congressmen of sexual harassment. What happened to “innocent until proven guilty “. You have convicted them in the public eye. That’s shameful!!! Furthermore, there are people in this country which believe that it’s not the responsibility of the government to support everyone. People have to take some responsibility for their own lives.

Great radar, more timely weather updates needed
Let’s face it, I often want to come here for the local weather, particularly on the weekend. But it’s so late being updated, especially on Sunday’s. Other than that this app is great. Some navigational quirks for sure.

Too many videos / not on demand...
If you’re looking for a News app that sends you a Notification that requires you to watch videos and live-streams with no text below describing said video, this is the app for you. As an example, notification read: Dozens if schools closing / delayed, click here for the Full List. I clicked. I get a video, no description, no timestamp, no link to resources. Great station. Atrocious app.

You can’t scroll through stories
Every time you try to scroll through the stories, the app pulls you back to the top of the screen and makes it nearly impossible to read through what’s on the page. Super annoying!

Fire stick

Poor news
This so called news station has become a platform for liberal rants. I miss the days when news was just that news. The weather was still wrong but at least there was no spin or coving up what is going on. This reminds me of pre World War II. The German people were not as excited to follow as the woke crowd is today. Less political spin and more reporting of facts.

This is a great app. But I don’t know about everyone but this app keeps crashing on me so I can never get through a full paragraph. But other wise, when I need to know something and it’s not on TV yet, this is a great app to look for that information.

Ads...ads everywhere
Half the article is literally covered in ads. You can’t scroll down without accidentally opening one, annoying and very obstructive. I understand you have to pay the bills, but to blatantly have a small window for the article itself? I can’t anymore
