Keeps Crashing!
This would be a very good app if it did not keep crashing when I’m trying to watch the latest news broadcast or open up other features not on on the homepage. Come on NBC15 please fix this!

9 months ago, tired of loading issues
I want to use the app to catch the previous newscasts for local news but a lot of times it’s just the “LNL” which has the most annoying anchor around or a special news report that is sure not the local news for that time. Can’t even get it over the weekend most times. It seems they only have the previous newscast when they feel like putting it out. And when you do get it, watching is annoying as it’s so choppy with dead spots, evidently to compensate for commercials yet it has its own ads too. Useless! If you’re going to have an app to help out your audience, maybe put in some effort and not just slop it out there and say you have an app.

Biased coverage leads to low rating
I have this app for local news and weather coverage. I keep it only for the weather reporting but find your news coverage biased in favor of Republican agendas. Your blackout on the dire conditions Dane County, which for several days we experienced the second highest Covid positivity in the NATION, puts the entire community at risk. This should have been a lead story and yet there was no mention of at all anywhere on this site. Everyone associated with this should be withered with shame at abandoning their journalistic responsibilities.

Very Usefull
This app shows a lot of the weather around my area and is definitely more accurate than some other apps I tried.

Can’t read
When you overlap ads on top of the article, how are you supposed to read it. I will delete this app after this review. Thanks for nothing.

Awful Writing and Editing
Quality local news can be tough to find, but the writers at NBC15 are so consistently awful that I can’t give this source more than 1 star. There are examples of unprofessional language and/or grammatical errors every day. The only stories that are written well are from external sources.

Ads ads ads
Pop ups, banner ads, thing blocking the screen and slowing down viewing all the time. I wanted news, but could barely find it behind the ads. Couldn't navigate the comments sections of each article. Rubbish.

What’s the news? What a joke- press release central for Joe Biden.
I’m old enough to remember when journalists were supposed to question the government narrative not regurgitating the press releases of the government bureaucrats who may, or may not be, acting in the best interests of the country. Shame on you!

Please update!
Please fix. It will not load the news stories. Channel3000 has so many pop up ads that I've turned to nbc15 solely for local news. Looks like I'm going back to the pop ups until this is fixed. Please hurry!

Very provincial content but with very unsophisticated organization and presentation. Much too “small town” in its approaches, even for Madison. Tedious finding specific reader topics of interest. Better off with a larger news provider—even out of state—with the scope and span to cover this area.

Literally just an add, no news
On more than one occasion I've opened the app to check the news and the only thing on the news page is an add. Can't even navigate around to get it somehow; no news... just adds.

Try reporting news, not your agenda.
The pop-up ad when you first opened up the app was one thing, but when the ad is politically biased- deleted the app.

Trying to get an update on the tornado when my DIRECTV went out and I have to sit through a 30 second ad. Pathetic. I hope that fractional cent of revenue was worth my safety.

When it comes to politics this station is very misleading and is incompetent about the real facts. Typical liberal Madison 🙄

Stupid ads preventing access to news now
A postage stamp sized ad appears when the Home->News is selected (or when News is selected from the entry page). Difficult to get fresh news in Madison / south central Wisconsin and this app doesn't always help. I would have rated this app 4 stars a couple of years ago but my rating has dropped as the app deteriorated.

Is it the 90's?
Dated font, & default size is tiny, the setting to change it failed to work. The menus froze & sharing was sluggish. It looks dated, like what you'd see on a website in the 90's. Content was not updated to things that were just on the news. iOS app.

Shame on you!
Allowing ads in front of a single news story is annoying enough, but you allow the ad to also hijack my phone to open up that ad's website on Safari automatically w/out my permission, on top of my having to view an ad?! Shame on you, NBC15!!!!!

Fed up
This app is so pathetic. Hard to navigate. Live streaming is horrid. Most news is cut off and weather missed because it is so overloaded with ad after ad and so repetitive. Winter ads run all through summer. Such a disappointment. The other local stations do a superior job why can't news15 do the same.
