Needs a lot of work 1/5
Absolutely atrocious audio quality, lack of customization, irrelevant information about the best Starbucks in town and sports teams, most of the content requires reading which makes this useless for on the go information gathering, and not what I expected regarding local content.
Not to mention the information fishing from users such as what cable provider you have.
This is a horrible app and I would never pay money for this content, especially with such bad audio quality.
Great but.. 3/5
This is a good service but I wish I could find a way to turn closed captioning off.
This app never shows me the local weather! Only reason to download this was for a more specific forecast.
Close caption 3/5
By wearher bug
Please get rid of the close captions
Not enough cities. 1/5
The title of this review pretty much says it all. Not enough cities to make it a truly useful app.
Not many cities supported. 3/5
Great App. Not many cities supported. I live in Pensacola and it’s not available. Only Panama City, FL 80 miles away or Mobile, AL 60 miles away. Need the addition of Pensacola to make it better for folks in the Florida panhandle.
App crashes after logging in to cable provider. Not worth the download.
No local forecast 1/5
No local forecasts, or even other city forecasts. Just endless commercials. Fail!
Worthless; No Local Weather 1/5
I installed this to see my local Weather on the 8’s. All it shows is fixed text “on commercial break” for several minutes, then the live Weather Channel stream resumes. No local forecast so will delete.
My Location? 1/5
By Love Virginia
I just installed this app. I’m very disappointed with the lack of locations. Being in the Blue Ridge Mountains, weather varies greatly. The closest location I could get is for at least 20 miles south of where I live. Doesn’t seem very useful.
Not for me 1/5
10 seconds if local weather ... 5 minutes of advertisement. ... Should have expected this, just try to find their content sprinkled in between massive chunks of ads and clickbate on the Weather channel's web page.
Unhappy and disappointed 1/5
Thought it would be cool to have. Closest “city” was 1 1/2 hrs north of me and inland. I’m in a city on the coast. Can’t believe it’s not included! Deleted without finishing set up.
Good app, but no options! 1/5
Need an option to turn off closed captioning! It covers up content. There should be an option to turn it on or off if desired.
App Crashes 2/5
This App won't let me watch The Weather Channel. When I sign in with Cable Provider the app crashes
No forecasts, just news propaganda 1/5
I loaded this to find that I only get Hollywood news snippets. Makes sense I guess coming from the channel who names winter storms.
Not that local 3/5
The app works great but I live I’m Williamsport, PA home town of little league baseball and the closest thing they had was wilks-bere pa same local news but they even get it wrong for us because we are like 2 hours away i thought it would be about here cause the weather channel here with local on the 8s has Williamsport so idk I deleted it not accurate for my location
Very nice app but my location is not available! 3/5
I watch the weather channel every morning and thought that this was going to be a cool app to have on my phone but after downloading it I realized that my location is not available. :(
NOT “Local on the 8s” as advertised 1/5
Not available for Comcast...must view in landscape...annoying commercial commentary...never even got to wx before deleting app; long minutes of cheap ads.
Essential a Fail 1/5
Downloaded it, tried it, deleted it. Only worked in landscape. Kept having me login to my cable provide. Not user friendly at all.
Extremely limited coverage 1/5
Does not offer coverage for my area within 50-75 miles. Does not support my cable provider as well. And I live in the NYC metro area! For a much touted app, very disappointed. Useless. Uninstalling.
Great app, can't steam the weather channel but local now works the same as The Weather Channel, gives great info.
Not local 1/5
I live away from city that is available to stream. I know you say you will add more cities but not useful for me
Kinda useless 2/5
Opened the app and the first annoying thing was that it would only allow me to use in landscape. Then it would only allow me to use a city 100 miles away with vastly different weather as my "current location". Deleted the app from my phone after that.
People want actual local weather info. Not weather from the closest city. Change the name of the app. It’s misleading to the public.
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.
