I LOVE KRON, but this app though...UPDATE*
Cmon what are you doing Nexstar??? CONSTRUCTIVE •How about instead of signing up with an email. You instead make it a 1 time in app purchase. •Or run advertisements. •You already have competition like KTVU Channel 2. I actually downloaded and used their app because it’s free but with advertisements. •I as a consumer am willing to make a 1 time purchase to unlock a year of streaming for $30 BUT It has to be through the apple App Store. •Also if you can’t perform recurring annual charges on the App Store. Then sell fake credits within your app to allow people to do it themselves. iPhone users have their accounts tied with apple. We don’t want to give up the main selling point of an iPhone, which is Privacy, just to watch local news. Sorry. That’s not going to happen. UPDATE. THEY FIXED IT! You can now use and pay for local news with your Apple account. You no longer need to give your personal email to sign up. However you will need if you want it on all devices and computer etc. Great job Nexstar! Thanks for listening. Here is your 5 stars. And I’m a subscriber now.

The Best. Period.
Just felt the need to let the entire crew of Kron 4 know that they are the absolute bomb. Been watching only you guys for years and the energy, the flow, the information, and details you guys give is what wakes me up in the mornin. Darya and James 🔥🔥🔥 Will 🔥🔥🔥 John and Reyna 🔥🔥🔥 Sara 🔥🔥🔥 Jason 🔥🔥🔥Justine and Grant 🔥🔥🔥 and everyone else. I’m an early riser so that’s who I know. I apologize for the long review. I’m at the Dmv and still have 45 min u til open so I figured I’d bless you guys with this. Keep doing your thing. Thanks.

Bay love
This station , KRON, is really satisfying my need to be in the Bay area virtually, as , in reality, I am thousands of miles away. One can dream, but seeing the events of the day play out on KRON sure makes things tingle with interest and caring. I did leave a lot of things in the Bay but with KRON, I am keeping them in view. Not affiliated with KRON, any of its employees, sponsors, etc . . . Just plain ‘ol likin the vibe.

Horrible bug
When it comes to news, I watch it live everyday. But lately, KRON4 app has been terrible primary oh their AppleTV capability… I always use appleTV to steam news onto my TV. Abc, fox, cbs5 and kron… all of it, KRON4 is the only app with a very buggy streaming plugin. It always show a commercial right before streaming actually happen, then it will cause an error. It was working fine for like few years…. Until recently, it won’t stream properly anymore. You will probably be fine if you want to watch on your tiny iPhone/iPad screen… BUT Streaming news onto TV is the current trend, who want to pay for the stupid cable and watch the low definitely or even off air. To Kron4/KronOn - if you are reading this, please fix your streaming plugin- it no longer works for older devices….!!! I am using ATV2 and some older iPads…. Tested few different iPads, none work probably anymore.

This is my favorite Bay Area news station. I watch every morning. The news, weather and traffic are great. The staff are upbeat and clear. The station works hard to promote Bay Area businesses and social programs. A special shout out to Dave Spahr , his extra use of weather patterns, the where, when and how of weather is great.

Good app - annoying repetitive ads
I love being able to cast the live video feed to my Chromecast on my secondary TV. And the app plays well on Apple TV. Only annoying part is the ads are repetitive, always the same. And sometimes no ads play at all during commercial breaks. Just silence and a message on screen that they will be back with a countdown clock.

Every morning I wake up and grope for the tv remote and wake up to the morning news. For an hour I get my coffee hop back into bed and see what the conversation of my day will be. Being a Barber there is a lot exciting talks with my clients. Thank you for making me a much informed personality ❤️ Cecelia Medina

The App Works but Requires Email Address
I liked the concept and the app seems well designed. But after about one minute it asks for your email and then to login to kron website. We have been burned by all the social media and google data mining, this ultimately looks to be the same. I guess you’ve got to pay for it somehow and selling ads isn’t working, so, data mine! Sorry kron, bad move.

App constantly freezes on my Apple TV
I’ve reinstalled this app numerous times on my Apple TV and I have to close and reload the app at least twice a day. It always gets stuck on a loading screen or freezes in the middle of a live broadcast in the morning and evening. Very very annoying.

Free channel charges for news
So let me get this straight, a channel I can watch for free with the aid of an antenna now wants to charge? Paid for the channel you made lots of money on (with taxes and subsidies to pay property taxes, etc.), your news should be a good start to paying back what you received. Don’t charge for local news. The first amendment protects you to keep us informed. Remember what you used to be. Free news means a free society.

App Crashes constantly
Kron on app would be great if it stopped crashing every time when you cast to a TV. It works fine if you watch on an iPhone or an iPad. Please fix this problem with the app, it’s useless to use if you want to cast to a TV or a streaming device.

It’s a great app when it works right. The app on my Apple TV seems to have lots of issues. And only works properly about half the time. But it’s great when it works so I keep trying. When it’s not working I switch over and watch the CBS app, it always works right.

Casting bug
This App has a serious problem casting to Chromecast. App drops out & starts playing audio on the phone while still casting... Audio is not in sync, so annoying. Because of all the restarts, you end up watching more commercials than news…

Stupid app ask you to pay to watch !!!!??
I’m not paying for free press. Freedom of information. This is the stupidest way to generate revenue, just like adding tax to soft beverages even to the people who don’t drink them. Convert back to a free to view app or lose many followers of KRON networking/incorporated

Why in the world would you make us pay for a news app???? To many commercials, nothing is up to date, and quite frankly it’s not worth it when the pot of news online is sooooo large THANKS BUT NO THANKS.
