WBRC Channel 6 Birmingham
My very favourite TV show is Absolutely Alabama with the masterful Fred Hunter. I grew up with 3 TV channel options until I was 10 years old when Alabama Public Television first aired from Mount Cheaha. I remember going outside next to the chimney and turning our quite tall TV antenna from Birmingham to Cheaha and back again because I simply had to see Tom York and Pat Gray! Thank you so much for these 63 years of service to me.

Wonderful weather team
Per a post that was made saying that their are way to many weatherman/woman on fox 6…. Keep dong an amazing job…Mickie n the morning and Wes thru out the day. I love Fox 6 whole cast from the anchorman’s,sports and the weather team. Yes James spann is the status quo but there are other amazing Meteorologist out there such as this group.

Awful App
I love watching this news but this is one of the worst apps I’ve ever used. It freezes up and I constantly have to click the play button to restart it. Sometimes it won’t play so I have to back out of the app and restart it. Also a commercial will just play right in the middle of the news. Then they play so long when the news comes back on it looks like it’s already been on and I miss parts of it. I’ve removed and reinstalled the app and tried turning my phone off and back on. Nothing helps so I’m just going to delete this app.

They are too many people telling the weather you don’t need 6 or more to tell the weather there needs to be a change up and lineup You only need a few to tell the weather

If you are going to report on the presidential debate, don't use CNN as a reference. We already know they are biased and report fake news! There was no mention in your article about Biden saying his son has not received any donations from the Russian mayor! Your article looked like it was more biased favoring Biden than anything. It was also mentioned on local TV news about the sheriff in Portland did not support Trump as he said. That was never fact checked. You did not contradict anything Biden lied about on your tv news. Just another example of being biased!

Takes too long to load
Since the “new” FOX6 app launched it takes forever for the app to open to read a story from a notification. If you leave the app, the notification is gone. Very frustrating. I’m switching to another local station for notifications until the bugs are worked out.

Terrible App
I would rather have the old version of this App and it wasn’t that great! However when you clicked on a notification it actually took you to it and played the video. This App. takes you to the annoying Ad. but never to the news mentioned in the notification. Then you have to hunt it. Almost as annoying as the Weather Channel App. but at least it plays the video in the notification.

WBRC Fox6 For Cord Cutters
I’ve been a cord cutter for 2 1/2 years. I really appreciate the fact that WBRC Fox6 News keeps me informed on my local news, what’s happening in my area, the weather and storm & tornado watches. I can watch Live on on demand on my iPhone , Chrome Book, Roku and Firestick so that I’m informed constantly. Thank you. WBRC FOX6 FOR CORD CUTTERS!!

Review of channel 6 weather
We very definitely depend on channel 6 and all the wonderful people on staff there. They are very good about giving warnings and getting it right. Please keep up the good work and God bless you all for helping to keep us safe.

Notifications getting annoying
When I first downloaded the app a few months ago, it was great because notifications were almost entirely limited to breaking news. Now the notifications come up for promos for things like podcasts, On Your Side segments, and Nick Saban postgame press conferences. Pretty annoying. I deleted the app today.

Great news team, horrible app!
This app is terrible! The ads are larger than the news stories which makes it impossible to navigate. Plus, when you click on a notification for a specific new story, you aren’t taken to the story. Instead, you are taken to a full screen ad that you have to close out of, only to then have to search for the story.

Update has a critical flaw
I enjoy this app for local news but the recent update has a huge flaw that will not allow me to open the app anymore. It flashes open then appears to shut down but is still running in the background. When I try to force it up from on my phone, it flashes again. I hope you’ll be able to fix this flaw quickly.

Most accurate weather forecast in Western Hemisphere
Mickey Ferguson is, without a doubt, the greatest meteorological mind in the business. The man knows his weather. We rely on his forecasts daily. Around here we have a saying, “If Mickey don’t predict it, it ain’t gonna happen.”

Not good
The old app was much better. Looks like the new design was just to add bigger more annoying ads. When scrolling it’s hard not to get one of the large ads in the screen. It was much nicer to have a small photo of the story on link. Now it’s hard to read the headlines. I understand they need the ad revenue, but you should not sacrifice quality and readability in the process.

It could be better
The app is okay, nothing to write home about . Too many mornings it displays day-old news, and takes too long to get up to date. But the worst parts are the poor grammar, misspellings and bad syntax that make so many articles difficult to read. Sometimes articles that tell of an event coming up fail to tell when!!!

Not user friendly
It always opens with the same ad that you have to X out to even open to the news. Then the opening page is messy. Too many squares to sort through. Developer needs to look at other news apps to get it. The user is looking to Fox because of their news content. The television version is great…make it happen with the app.

The new interface stinks
I will probably not be using this app going forward. It offers no current headlines or stories if interest when open the app, just a collection of mini apps that take you elsewhere to actually find something of interest. Poorly designed in my opinion.

Awesome ad hosting platform!
This is a great app to use if you’re looking for new windows or interested in gambling. As for the actual news, you’ll spend more time trying to figure out how to close the full screen advertisement (some you can’t, you have to force close the app and relaunch). Same issue with WBRC weather app. This used to be great, but I guess greed strikes again.

I like the news not the sponsors
I wished there was another way to include the sponsors other than having to wait 60 seconds for the news to load. Often I will switch to another news source for a quicker response. The weather is the absolute worst.

This app, other than the written headlines is like reading a gossip magazine. The advertisements for the race course are annoying. The lists of ‘fake’ news at the end of the news reports (like selling snake oil) are at best non-news at most click bait. Surely, in the state of Alabama there are sponsors who are reputable and news worthy. This would be considered ‘redneck’ news in my home state of Maryland.

WAY to many ads and click bait
IWould prefer to see the story that I click on and not be redirected to the Wetumpka casino resort and spa. Stick to the news. I understand capitalism, but keep your ads tucked into the article actually select and do not direct me to somewhere else. I’ll be deleting this app if I don’t see changes soon.

New update ugh
I have always enjoyed this app but the update took a turn for the worse. Miss the trending option for the news section. Top articles in feed are two days old. Link leads to page not found. The newsfeed is also difficult to distinguish ads from articles. Also way too many ads.

Alerts lead to hours old story
The overall design and features are designed well. The issue is the reports are not updated. It's frustrating to get news alert notification, click to read and get the original report posted hours ago. Why give an alert and not publish the details?

I used to be able to watch the news, now I just get commercials when I try to watch live. Same commercials just repeating itself endlessly. After many years, it’s time for me to find a new local news team.

I get several notifications daily from this local news app, nearly every notification is about a murder, kidnapping, fire etc… How about writing some positive articles, maybe some that don’t contribute to the already crappy mental health state of our society. Horrible y’all.
