The most common provider out there, used my millions of people, isn’t even supported. I am an XFINITY customer and I can not even use this for my own personal gain even though I see many advertisements about this all the time on The Weather Channel through XFINITY. Not cool LocalNow, you lost a potential customer.
Can’t watch without cable provider 1/5
I can’t watch the live stream without my cable provider which I’m living a cable free life so I will just go back on YouTube and look up “weather channel live” and stick to that.
Local now 1/5
Very frustrating to use. To many commercials. Rate it a 1
Definitely need to add DirectTV Now support 3/5
Gotta got it! Please!
Localnow app 1/5
By Idiot 22
Terrible,wish there were a way to rate negative stars. Stops,saying they are on commercial break,doesn't restart. Had to exit,tired of waiting. Useless b.s.!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Great idea, but . . . 1/5
Not local at all. The nearest supported city is 70 miles away, with different weather conditions. The app is pretty much worthless to me right now.
another avenue to force feed advertisements! 1/5
No thanks. Waste of time
Loved it Through hurricane Irma!! 5/5
This app was amazing during Irma 7 days ago!!
We live on Marco Island and we evacuated to Naples Florida. We got to Naples, but after watching the weather channel there, we then quickly decided we needed to keep going further north to Jacksonville. We drove over night 8 hours and we were able to watch the live forecast with the track of the storm as we drove!!! It was great. We are now back on Marco Island!
Could not get Myrtle Beach as my location. Insisted on Florence, which get totally differs weather. Deleting app.
Needs an update 3/5
It's a great option to have but the location services need a change. The only choices are always or never. I'd like the option of "while using".
The feed freezes so frequently that the app is useless.
simple and very current 5/5
works great for me. I'm with Cox. The live stream vs live TV is only delayed a few seconds. I think this app is great
By Whitewings 21
It asks for zip and it shows you something entirely wrong.
Not Local 1/5
This app had Lots of ads but nothing local in my area.
All I got is another app with the Weather Channel.
By Boxer mom1
Highly disappointed 1/5
By M. Kevin Pruett
You have to login with a cable company our TV provider do not like absolutely hate our parent Lee there is a charge on this because you only have a 30 day free trial do not get
Very Poor 1/5
Not really local. Closest city is over 100 miles away
Why do I put in my zip code if it will not pull up my area
Vital Resource 5/5
By Jason AKA Future TWC Producer
Has potential to save many lives during dangerous weather -JH
Not user friendly at all. Constantly having to sign in. Easier to stream the Weather Channel directly.
Just one thing... 3/5
By Hurricane Crazy
The stream works fine but i wish that it could give you hyperlocal streams + streams for Puerto Rico. Other than that its pretty ok.
Requires cable provider 1/5
Requires cable subscription to be useful.
Disappointed, because if you wanted to watch the weather channel, than you see "enter your cable service provider" and your Dream is to be a meteorologist, this app is not for you, you will wish the local now app did not exist!
Not user-friendly, endless aggravating advertisements, and does not get "to my community" as stated! This app is junk, I am removing it!
Great Info on local news and weather 4/5
I just discovered this app and will use it often as first choice for updates.
Charter Spectrum not supported 1/5
Largest cable provider in the country doesn't support this app. Don't bother.
1 Channel, poor user interface 2/5
Streams 1 Channel of aggregated, localized content. App keeps switching from landscape to portrait whenever a control function is performed. Very distracting.
Not local no casting abilities 3/5
Was hoping to cast to cast this app to my outdoor tv but there is no such utility. This is in Tampa and not close enough to accurately tell me the weather in Redington Beach. I hope this gets fixed soon. The concept is good but still has a way to go
Will not load. 1/5
I downloaded this today and will not load. Waste of time
Fantastic Weather Application 5/5
By Little Jimmy Wonder
A little bit of patience pays super big dividends on what information you have fed back to you.
It is awesome 5/5
By Don't feel
It tells you alerts that you don't know
Did not work. Waste of Time.
Stuart J 1/5
Nothing but commercials, nothing about the weather. Either news or commercials but no weather.
Too limited 1/5
There are too few choices and can't find anyplace within 60 miles of where I live, and I don't live in the country. Time to delete this app due to can't use it.
Not really local 1/5
Weather 100 miles away really doesn't interest me very much
Great app, great info all in one place 5/5
This app offers a great way to get local info, weather and traffic in a quick little package for people on the go! Excellent for anybody looking for a concise look at what's going on. Video/sound quality is excellent and I haven't come across any issues with buffering. I'm excited about where this app is going and its potential! It's certainly a lot easier to whip out your smartphone and get a quick recap than it is to find time to watch local news.
Not really local 2/5
Only does major cities, not local locations.
San Diego "Whale's Vagina" 5/5
One of the few apps I can actually get local news on with my Apple TV. Weird.
No Xfinity, No Sound Source Option 2/5
Can't use Xfinity account, can't choose a source for the sound when charging in car. You end up with no sound unless you disconnect. Would love it if these two things weren't a problem.
Doesn't list my provider or location 1/5
By Proud Southern Belle
Waste of time to download if your provider or location is not listed...please fix this and I would try again
No captioning as required by federal law 1/5
Which app with the local streaming video it's not have close captioning as required by federal law.
They 21st-century Communication and Video Accessibility Act signed into law in 2010 by President Obama, has not been complied in this App yet. Please do so because 34 millions deaf and hard of hearing citizens can benefit from this in emergency situations and moment to moment weather events.
Good info, fast! 5/5
Perfect for those early morning commutes or trips to the airport.
No go for Comcast / xfinity customers 1/5
The fact that this app requires cable tv provider login, from a participating provider is LAME. They should want as many people as possible to be able to see the video content in the app ... more eyeballs means more ad dollars, but no. Some fat overweight CEOs want another way.
This app is not for cutting edge live sports or movie content, which might actually be worth paying for. Rather, this app is for the sensationalized weather forecasts (such as winter storms that have names) that you can get for free in many places. The pay tv industry is doing everything they can possibly do to irritate people and this app is no exception.
A long time coming! 5/5
I've been waiting for this to happen. So far, the app seems to be working really well. It's nice to be able to watch AMHQ on the go. Keep up the good work, developers!
This is not a good app, does not take my location, it gives weather from 50 miles away. New Jersey is actually on the map !! It would be nice if it was shown with upcoming storms !!
Not so good 2/5
Won't take my location, it's off by about 70 miles, and won't switch between portrait view and landscape. Not sure about the quality of information because it won't let me switch locations. When the bugs get worked maybe it'll be better.
Best Apple TV app 5/5
Great for office lobby tv.
Not even close!!! 1/5
My local news, sports, & weather is 70 miles away???
I already have Comcast and their Xfinity TV app lets me watch The Weather Channel, but on the go it only has the national feed (no Local On the 8s). I was expecting Local Now to solve that problem, except it also requires a cable TV subscription, and Comcast is not supported. What's the point of this app then? Why even bother?
Did like it... 2/5
Key word: DID. It is, rather was, good. Let's you stream TWC.
Issue: constantly signs me out so I have to log in with my provider. Come on TWC. Have the guys at WU build this for you, they will do it better. Also, make it so local on the 8's isn't in another section of the app.
All you guys need to do is make a version of STORM for appletv and add a section where you can stream TWC.
