WCVB NewsCenter 5 - Boston app reviews

  • Tiresome repetitive ads 3/5

    By Oohkissymala
    I watch WCVB live for evening news. Enjoy the professional presentations and concise reporting. BUT.....the WCVB app is overburdened with repetitive ads. Every story video is preceded by the SAME inane pitch. If ad revenue is that desperately needed, then priorities are skewed. Maybe new GM reads this?
  • App just doesn’t work 2/5

    By vicky397
    I’ve had this app for about 5 years now and it hasn’t worked in about 6 months and it hasn’t been fixed and they don’t seem to be acknowledging the issue at all. Had to delete simply because it became a waste of space and I need to be able to read my news
  • Exceptional news service but the app is drenched in advertising 3/5

    By TGrrl222
    I’ve been a faithful viewer of WCVB for many years. The news is first rate, the anchors exceptional and it’s always my go to for weather. The app is generally favorable but the number and the placement of the advertising is off putting. I often get frustrated and just click out. I most often go here to watch the weather forecast video but I’m always forced to watch an ad first. It’s too much. I do wish there was a bit more coverage of national news issues, despite it being a locally based program.
  • Running slow 3/5

    By Robert Marino
    Lately I find the app is running slow and freezes when trying to open a story. I also see stories repeated for several days in a row.
  • Freezes often when opening app. 1/5

    By B0bafet
    Have to reopen 3 or 4 times to get it to respond. Tried deleting and reinstalling but it didn’t help.
  • Ads still cutoff story 2/5

    By pulseimages
    WCVB is my favorite news channel but it’s app is hindered by it’s ad placement. Whenever there is an advertisement in the middle or end of a story the sentence gets cut off. So you never get to finish what you’re reading, very frustrating! Please fix this!!
  • Like it but...the ads and clickbait 3/5

    By ccddllpp
    I love the WCVB content and legit news stories from CNN, etc, but the ads are excessive and the Stitch and other trash site stories are very disappointing.
  • App is starting to freeze upon opening 3/5

    By local talent
    When not using the app for a few minutes it tends to freeze and I have to exit out and open it up again. Other than that app is fine
  • Channel 5 5/5

    By dustypnut
    I grow-up w/ channel 5 people. Now I’m 60. & still watching. Miss all the regional ones.Their all the best. Even the ones that have passed. I cried w/ them, & the ones that retired . I cried. They are family. To the new & old crew. Be safe❤️channnel 5!!!
  • Cape Cod 4/5

    By OpaSkip
    Check the app every morning to keep in touch with my home stare. Disappointed that there isn’t a special section for Cape news.
  • Ad reviews 5/5

    By Gryph's Mom
    As the previous reviewer noted there are several ads and you’re not always able to find the story that is being advertised. I do, however, enjoy the site and the TV Show. Thanks!
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Josie Dupa
    Latest upgrade totally horrible!! App freezes up and app shuts down alot!! Fix it!!!
  • Too video heavy 2/5

    By R R Morgan
    I love WCVB and get all my local news, weather, etc. there. But the app is TOO video heavy. Have videos but have the transcript too. I’m not always somewhere I can play a video which means I have to miss out on what probably is a good story.
  • Sometimes has problems starting up 3/5

    By H Pierre
    An excellent App for weather and news. However it has problems with startup. Doesn’t work 50% of the time.
  • Ads+ comments 1/5

    By Crpayson
    Your ads are sometimes longer than your stories. Some stories say read more below and there is no below. There isn’t a comment section on articles connecting users ideas and thoughts. Bring back the old app styles!
  • Don’t waste your time 1/5

    By Al Sharptongue
    Pathetic app. Like a first grade kid made it. Liberal garbage fir content
  • Best Boston news 4/5

    By nb oince
    The WCVB newscasters are both informative and personable. News is timely and breaking news is informative and the best available at the time of the report. Information when premature due to its breaking status is verified and re-reported once better information becomes available.
  • You don’t keep up with current news on the weekends... 1/5

    By KrystalKat711
    Besides not staying current, I like to be able to enlarge the typeset that you have set but am not allowed to do so like I can on another news app that I’ve begun using. I can enlarge the print on the other app and guess what?? They stay current with the weekend news, your app doesn’t change the headline until Monday. The old app was better and this new one is terrible. Now please stop asking me to review your app because if I could give this app 0 stars I definitely would do so.
  • Too many ad interruptions 3/5

    By HQLittle
    For the most part I like these app, but reading it is often an exercise in frustration. Nine times out of ten, a sentence is interrupted by an ad and not continued below the ad, leading to a disjointed narrative. This does not happen in the apps I have for two newspapers or the news app that is part of my phone, so I don’t understand why this problem can’t be fixed on the WCVB app.
  • Confusing 3/5

    By maobrass
    There are times you Showa story onto and say further information can be found on this site. Please mention what section it can be found. I love WCVB tv and love the information on here .
  • Great App 5/5

    By BoB from Dedham
    It’s the only news app I use because it’s the best app to use. Channel 5 does a great job and I live their app!
  • Updating more frequently 3/5

    By Jeanne1213
    It would be great if the text stories were updated more often. Sometimes they are a day or two old.
  • Love the network but not the app 3/5

    By RD2969
    The biggest issue with the app is the incomplete stories. Ads, photos and the next story, break up the paragraphs so that there is missing information
  • Minor issue: 4/5

    By Mr. Eclectic
    Often, when I open the app and scroll down just a little and click on the weather (to watch the video with Cindy or Mike) I get a screen with gray globs on it and nothing else - it just sits there and nothing I try to do changes it. So I “kick” the app closed (by swiping up on my iPhone 11) and open it from scratch again and then I can get the video to come up so I can watch it. Why is that? Won’t work the first time, but always works the second time?
  • Rate app 5/5

    By rfd482
    Great app but some of the stories are days, weeks old.
  • Review 5/5

    By Bob's alarm
    This is a very good app, but from time to time I see stories that are more then a week old.
  • Stop the ads! 3/5

    By Anteater55
    Love the app but absolutely hate the ads!
  • App is good - ad’s cutting off content is not 1/5

    By EHW1
    I’ve reported this multiple times I’m the past via direct email to WCVB and nothing has changed. Perhaps this will get some results. Stop pandering to your advertisers and just deliver the news. I and probably most other users ignore the ads anyway so get rid of them. All the ads do it cut off content which then makes me switch to another app for news reports that don’t have this same problem.
  • Too many ads! 3/5

    By Kr384
    Way too many ads. You miss the beginning of the news alerts and news briefs because the ads play. I would give this a 5 but because of the annoying ads I give it a 3
  • Could be better 2/5

    By Rydessia
    Stories are cut off half way through a paragraph. Love the news TV station but the app needs work.
  • Skipping the videos 3/5

    By Wellfleet reader
    I would like to see an option of only reading a news item rather than having to watch the video (and ad that goes before it).
  • Can’t open everything 5/5

    By grwitch22
    I love watching channel 5 news.Since I did the latest update I can’t open some of the videos. What a bummer.When is the next update to fix this..
  • The app is too stagnant. Not updated often. Disappointed. 1/5

    By Freddy 78
    I read the captions as it is not a user friendly app. Stories are not updated often.
  • Needs lots of work 2/5

    By icewine47
    Too many ads, awkward. Really slow to change content.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By wcvbappsux
    Stories won’t load, app crashes every time I open it. Every single story is cut off and information is missing. Every.single.story. It asks for my location every time I *try* to use it. Why does it need my location?! Probably the WORST app I’ve come across. Deleted app.
  • Cannot stand WCVB app 1/5

    By cysalot
    I really dislike this app. It has news that happened 2 days ago still on. It is not updated at all. Never on the weekends I also don’t like the sensational headlines with senseless news from other regions.
  • App. 2/5

    By Lexi1955
    Not happy with this app. When you get a notification and you go to the website to read it you can’t find.
  • Ads 3/5

    By kkeevviinncc
    You put an ad right in the middle of a story and I miss part of the story
  • Too many ads 3/5

    By Annebarc
    I tend to not watch videos because ads are usually longer than videos.
  • Hate the videos in every news item. 3/5

    By Furelisew
    That’s why I stopped using it.
  • App 2/5

    By Jf123579
    App could be great but many stories end mid sentence—doesn’t anybody edit!!!
  • Yuck 2/5

    By Topogi68
    Too many ads...they often cover the stories. Difficult to keep a story line going while trying to move the ads out of the way.
  • It’s Family 5/5

    By five freak
    We have been watching since we were kids Frank Avruch Janet Langhart Chet Nat Don Gillis David Muir And so on! 5 goes on at 4:45 am and After Shayna and Anthony remind us of Peter and Mary we watch ABC We are the Neilson Dream family I guess In Spite of The Bill Fine Out of step Editorials Thank You for your endless commitment to our community! Thank You! Rich Brothers Five Freak
  • Mobile App 4/5

    By Dianne from Dorchester
    I have always preferred WCVB I remember Harvey and the blizzard of ‘78!!!! Lately the text of your prices are impossible to read because a good section is cut off. And many times lately the text doesn’t always match the video. I hope you can fix this soon. Maria Stephanos is a beautiful woman but the red choker that I’ve seen her wear doesn’t do her justice.
  • No Updates 2/5

    By Bonsai51
    I have written this before, app is not updated in a timely manner. Same news is on most of the day and night. I use app to keep me updated but it doesn’t do that.
  • It 1/5

    By utruggrh
    Nothing but agenda driven biased BS
  • Dorothy L. Donovan 5/5

    By Dottie Dunny
    I have used the app for my local news multiple times a day. They have kept me up to date on Covid-19 and the Governor’s daily updates .
  • Decent but the weather nope 👎🏼 4/5

    By Harrrrrey
    The app seems stable with no crashes. The weather notifications are not very accurate and that’s based off other news and weather apps I use for work. They say no rain, wcvb says heavy rain...Nope. The content is good.
  • What happened? 3/5

    By Happy camper 2004
    Ever since your last update, your video stories don’t load. What’s the problem?
