No more channel 8 news for me!
After decades of loyalty to channel 8 news, weather and sports, I sadly have chosen to move on to other news, weather and sports sources who do not interject false political accusations of our previous president and very little about our current most incompetent president of all times. This is a local news channel , not a George Soros propaganda source. I will miss the great weather crew most of all.

News for LOCALS
I used to only look at the other 2 stations news apps. But once those apps updated, all you get is ADS and SPONSERED news from around the country and you can't weed out the local news from the bloat news. Fox 8 news app features our own local news and it's not shoved over with bloat news and ads. Please, Fox 8, please do not change your app to look like the others!

Morning News
I never was one who would wake and turn on the news, however one morning I did. I watched and enjoyed it so much. We see so much going on with crime, in politics and Mother Nature, but yet fox8live morning news lightens up all the horrible things they need to report by bringing laughter to the news. Life is serious enough but you have to have laughter and humor in your life.

Fox 8 app
I’m not a big fan of the new fox8 app. It’s not like the old app where you can get on and go straight to the news . Instead now they have advertisements playing when we should be able to get the news not random advertisements.

Better reporting than Wwl
I like that the reporting is better than most local news apps but it gets so crowded out by all the trashy ads that I easily frustrate when trying to use it. Take out the ads. Also. Please have a local news section even a Northshore news section would be great too. I don’t like that all of the news is all mixed together. I really don’t care about all the sports or entertainment news in my regular news feed.

New update
The new layout of the app is not user friendly. In fact is appears smaller in font and more of a pain to get to multiple stories because you have to scroll so far down to make sure you actually see all the news. I feel the pictures take up to much space and what happened to the “Trending” portion of the news?! That was the interesting part because you knew it was the most updated part of the news. Not happy with it at all.

Bring Back The Old Weather Radar
I used to use this app almost exclusively for the weather radar. After an update about a month ago, the radar changed dramatically and not in a good way. It takes me more clicks to get there, and the radar is awful. The old radar could give me accurate weather within a block on my location. I can’t always zoom in and zoom out with the new radar.

Tired off the same story…
Please lets focus on something else now.. there wasn’t that much time spent on the state troopers that killed the black man an the governor seems to have know about the incident… what’s going on with those officers an why are they still employed… I seems like all 8 talk about now is the mayor and / or the chief off police.. give us More news not tabloid stories.. I hate the news now.. I use to watch 8 every day all day.. it seems like y’all are just over killing the situation…

The cast of news anchors is amazing at their jobs. I Look forward to seeing the funny aspect of the broadcast and the serious portion of the news daily. I appreciate all of the news personnel in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Thank you all.

Notification do not coordinate with website
Sorry to criticize your app and website system but it leaves a lot to be desired. You send a notification text about a breaking issue, you click the notification that brings you to the mobile website and the issues you texted about is nowhere on the cover webpage, that is if you can get past the full page adds to get there. Sorry, it’s really useless.

Used to be good
Not sure what happened but this app is now terrible enough I’m leaving a review. Even at local news hours, it’s a crapshoot if you get local news or some random newscast from around the country. If it plays at all. 3/4 of the time I get a video playback error. And way too many commercials. If I wanted news from somewhere else I’d get a different app. This is dreadful. Please fix it.

ED Commercials in the morning????
You may not want this channel on in the morning before school aged children are headed out to school. ED commercials are not appropriate in the morning. We switched to the local NBC morning news and they also have ED commercials so now we’re watching the local CBS morning news show and so far so good. In the evening we’re all about Fox News. But cannot handle local fox in the morning; I don’t care to explain to my 12-year-old son what ED is.

Why build an app
First off, I have never received the live stream through this app. I can go to the website and get it. Second, all the news story headlines are browser links. This app has been horrible. I have a better experience by using safari, and adding the homepage bookmark to my home screen. The video links are the most annoying with 30 second ads, and if there is an interruption, ie phone call, you have to re-watch the ad.

Older Version was Better
Hate the New Update of the Fox News App. The older Version was way better. You can’t minimize the live news RC, an do other things on your phone anymore. The display of the news is very unorthodox. They make using the app more of something you have to fully engage in, where as before you can stay up to date on the News while on a go.

The previous app was much easier to navigate. There are at the end of scrolling down stories that are weeks, if not months old. Either update them or delete them. Plus, I really dislike advertisements. I’m looking for news, not advertising.

Ads ugh
This app is getting to be a pain to use. The ads popping up randomly and frequently are just unnecessary. It’s my favorite news app but just don’t want to fool with it because of this. Seems like it just started recently, if it’s some type of bug it’d be great to have it fixed.

Font too small
This app used to have a decent sized font that made it easy for older folks to read. New app had feature to adjust it, but it didn’t work. Looks like they removed that completely now but the fonts are still really small. Just lost this reader!

George Floyd
Getting tired of Fox8 constantly reminding people about George Floyd. Liz Reyes had this graphic video on the news last week and now I see it on my phone. Keep dividing the country. The police officers who were there , especially the officer who caused him to die, are all going to prison. What else are you looking to do. I hope your ratings go way down.

FOX 8 is the best BUT ...
FOX 8 is the best, but the new app is awful. The app is not user friendly and the adds are way too much. I used this app several times a day, but I will not be using as much, it’s frustrating. Please do something about this app. Thanks!

Could be much better!
I have this app to get local news, but many of the stories lack depth, leaving me with unanswered questions. On top of that, there are many grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors. Don’t they have editors?

Since the new version, I cannot open a story to read it. I click on the story, it shows up for a second, then disappears and just shows a blank page. On the iPad, it’s even worse. This used to be my news source - no more.

Not User Friendly
It is very hard to find a segment that you watched on TV to get the information you may have missed. In this day and age it shouldn’t be this hard to find information on this app. Other local TV stations have easier app.

Too many ads now .
Used to be a great app, but now it’s just as bad as the others . It’s almost impossible due to the positioning to not click on an ad while scrolling . I’ll be deleting off phone and iPad . Y’all should be ashamed of yourselves for selling out

Just got a tornado warning on the phone. Switching back to Fox 8 on the TV and the power goes out. Tried to go to the app and have to navigate through commercials to get to the critical weather report. Seems like in those situations you forgo the revenue and get to the appropriate screen right away. Gary Gamble La Place

Too many ads
Tried to watch the news live through the app and all I got was an infomercial for a skin cream that wouldn’t end. A 20 or 30 second add is understandable but not an infomercial. I’m done - deleting this app. I’ll get my local news elsewhere.

Scam to the Elderly
You have ads that mislead the elderly thinking it is coming from Medicare or Social Security that actual coming from Scammers. You can only change your Advantage plan is at the end of the year before 12/31/ or you pay a late fee. Everyone else received extra help during this covid 19 time, but the elderly food up, gas up and medication up. It’s has been a terrible year for the elderly with no Doctors, Ochsner not treating us right. We need help, Not scams Please stop this ads on T. V ., web site.
