Useful local, national and breaking news 5/5
Since moving to Central Florida, we have come to depend on WESH to news, both on TV and on our phones.
WESH is always there 5/5
By M.L Sanford
I have been in the area since 1979. WESH has been the station I watch. Your crew all are awesome thank you
By jim winter garden
Very annoying that adds hide part of stories. Can not read a complete story. Maybe missing important fact
By Many Hats
I used to really enjoy the news alerts but having to here the alert sound every time it rains is really annoying. This is almost summer in Florida. It always rains! Maybe just severe warnings.
App constantly refuses to load 1/5
So, there was an update recently which
Have been a WESH viewer for many, many years. While I usually watch on cable or desktop, seeing on cell phone fills in when I’m out.
They are extremely slow at keeping articles current. One example-Today is May 26. This is the first day the articles with supposedly the updated Covid-19 information isn’t from May 4.
When a notification for breaking news pops up and you click on the link, it doesn’t take you to the breaking news, it takes you to the main page. They keep old news on the main page. Just disappointed with this app. Doesn’t reflect or compliment the news team very well.
Ads are on top of the articles! 1/5
On my iPhone, the ads are right on top of the words written in the articles. Makes trying to make sense of news articles impossible. Deleting the app as it’s useless for me!
News Stations 5/5
We have lived in Ocala for the past 3 years.We retired and moved down from Portsmouth NH.There have been only 3 stations we have ever watched, channel 9 NH, channel 5 Boston, and WESH now in Florida. All 3 of these station are very similar. But we do live in Florida year round now, so channel 2 WESH is now number 1 very good on everything you do, and you offer...5 Stars!
Great News Station. 5/5
By I Love Tofu
Thank you WESH 2 for delivering the news without inserting a political stance like the others.
Too many intrusive ads 1/5
I installed this app over a year ago. I turned notifications on after the Coronavirus pandemic was in full force. However, when I click on a notification the first thing to open is an ad or promotion video. There are so many intrusive ads in the app that it makes it annoying and a waste of time to attempt to read the news report or watch a video. I decided to delete the app. I’ll try using their website to see if it is more useful.
Great Station and Anchors 5/5
By Spoiled poodle
I just hope it’s not true that David Pingalore is coming back to Orlando at your station.
You’re too good for his nonsense.
Wesh2 news 5/5
I just love how Wesh2 shows what’s going on in the local counties. Especially the weather. No other news app/stations tell what’s happening in my county. Since I’ve only lived in Kissimmee for almost five years now. So that information is especially important. 👍🙂
Text does not fit screen 1/5
Just upgraded the app to the newer version and now I have to delete it. For some reason on every article the text does not fit inside the screen. Please fix.
It had a bug they fixed it great 5/5
Thank you wesh 2 News stay safe and thank you again..
I wasn’t able to watch not one now I’m able and works great thank you...
Great app 5/5
Thank you Channel 2 for keeping us well informed on what’s happening in the community and the weather.
Great to know we can count on you!
Local news at a glance 5/5
By Leesnurg Lass
Love the news feeds that pop up on my phone. Not too many but they keep me informed. If I want more information, it’s easy to find.
Can’t see weather forecast 3/5
By Mrs hot Dave
Since 4/14 update I cannot see the video forecast of the meteorologists.
Change the links 4/5
Love the app but hate that third party links open when you’re scrolling through an article and barely touch the link. Also need better sports coverage.
Half of the content... 1/5
By Doughnut Licker
Half of the content on the news feed is crap advertising that link you to suspect websites. Be careful what you click on when using this app. You could give your device a virus or comprise your personal information with thieves and scammers.
Content does not fit on iPhone screen 1/5
After the latest update, reports no longer fully fit my iPhone screen.
Unnecessary scrolling updates 1/5
Unnecessary audio & text scrolling virus updates with self promoting made me delete this app.
On the hour and half hour WESH self promoting updates ruin the regular programming.
I will get my (news) from regular news media or watch regular news programs at their respective time slots.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
Misleading Links 1/5
By Skooba Steve NJ
Advertises links on website that provide information only when app is downloaded. App does not provide different information once downloaded
Great news source 5/5
Thanks for keeping us up to date on current events. It’s my go to source for local and national breaking news.
Accurate reporting 5/5
I relocated from Virginia to Florida and the news I’m used to getting was hit and miss. Now that I have the app, I get news before its reported in Virginia or DC. and it’s always accurate but not exaggerated. They report it not try to influence.
Slow speech down 2/5
They ALL talk to fast and talk over each other. Confusing. Thank you
Ads cover up important text 1/5
By Chillin in Sorrento
The text will continue something like
The homeowner arrive to find that
And then there is an ad. Which covers the remaining important text. Makes it useless
Additionally you are still prevented from using the app when in Eastern Europe. Will continue to use FOX 35 and channel 9 apps to see what the heck is going on at home while traveling. They do not block you from use when in Europe.
Your Radar Loop 4/5
I’m a total WESH fan! I have one question. When I wanna see the current radar, say it’s 5:00pm, why does the loop start at like 10:00am instead of just going back a couple of hours? It’s simply too long of a loop.
WESH 2 staff 5/5
By Barb of Silver Springs
Your news anchors along with the rest of your staff are very professional, respond to messages and comments, are always nicely dressed and take their responsibilities seriously. But at the same time they display some sense of humor when it is appropriate. I watch many of your news programs daily and the only change I would like to see is a little variation between the topics between 4-5-6 and between 10 and 11.
Horrible morning streaming 2/5
I live in eastern Polk Co so of course my tv services cover Tampa and not Orlando.....I was so happy to see that part of this app was live streaming of the news. Well, it’s terrible. It makes you sit through anywhere from 2-12 adds at a time and when it returns it’s in the middle of the story......it’s so glitchy, it freezes then goes black, it also plays like a broken record, it will play the same 15 seconds or so several times.....please fix this I was happy to see my favorite news channel streamed, but this app needs so much work
Good coverage but incomplete 2/5
I normally watch the station at home in the morning and enjoy the coverage for the news and the weather. However the app has something to be desired as the stories are incomplete and end in mid sentence.
My favorite in the early morning. 5/5
By Mint latte
Lots of up to date information and a big start with the weather and road conditions. I like the morning team and it makes me feel they are friends and want me to “join in” on their get together. Well done.
Ad vids 2/5
By Exiling islander
I understand you need ad revenue, but the commercial videos preceding every news article are painfully long.
Why do ads cut lines out of the stories? 3/5
I like this station for local news. But, when I try to read stories in this app, anywhere an ad is inserted within a story, the story loses a line of text. I understand the ads are needed, but sometimes the missing line is important to the story.
Can do without the loud ads automatically playing. 3/5
I love WESH and for the most part I like the app. My biggest complaint is when I get a news alert or want to open an article, it automatically starts playing an ad....loudly if my phone volume isn't turned off. This is inconvenient and there should be a way to open an article and not have the ad before the story start playing right away. I close out of the app and never read the article when this happens. It's too aggravating and embarrassing if it happens when others are around me.
The Best 5/5
Since I moved to Orlando, from Tampa, in 1980 I’ve relied on WESH for News & Weather. Fair, thorough and accurate. WESH is always involved in the community. Keep it going!
By Sea Loozie
I know you are apparently under pressure to be “on top of the news”, but the words “breaking news” should be stricken from your reporters in my view due to over use by all networks.
Additionally, telling us what you do not know seems to be getting more air time than telling us what you do know.
Too many ads!! 3/5
This is my favorite for the news but there’s WAY TOO MANY ADS!! You can’t watch a video without an ad and most of the time it’s the same one repeated in each video. You can’t understand half of what she’s saying so it’s a waste of time anyway. I’ve quit watching most videos because of this. Plus I get an alert on my phone for a story, click on it but many times it doesn’t take me to it. Without these issues I would give 5 stars.
Follow what’s happening back home 5/5
Great for keeping up with news when I am traveling. Reports are kept current when I want updates.
Not watching your news anymore 1/5
Your account of hearings today were purely one sided.... shame on you!!
Love WESH 5/5
I have been watching WESH 2 for 23 years. I rely on their honest and accurate news and weather. They are true lifesavers during hurricanes!!!
I wish you would update your site more frequently!
Love my WESH app 5/5
This App tells me everything I need to know in a flash. My favorite source for news, tropics & weather. 💨😎
Commercials ruin it 3/5
This morning it played the same commercial 6 times. 6! I’ve been using this app for a year now and loved everything but the live TV commercials. I definitely don’t think they’re taking into account their audience. Money is money, but at some point they have to consider people don’t want to hear 6x in a row Toyota is clearancing 2019 models. 🙄
News Updates we receive 3/5
We are always glad to get noticed if any big news story - but we are so tired of having to listen to your same Amazon or Car company commercials blasting at top volume. We always turn down the volume to read the news story- very bothersome- with no “X” to take it off like other websites.
WESH 2 app 5/5
By Dennis and Margo K
My wife are extremely happy and satisfied with the WESH 2 app and very comfortable relying on it exclusively!
Always watch WESH for news and weather 5/5
We have their app and find it useful! No problems.
Best Ever 5/5
By Lanier and Eme
I love WESH. It’s one of the most informative applications I have on my iPhone keep up the good work
Good family 5/5
I been watching many of our local news stations for 40 years how ever with the news team they have from News to sports to the weather they make me feel they care about others where they live among all of us ,and the new reporters they have found has made me feel they are replacing and adding good young people in there staff who doing and will even get better in reporting the News and there tony who get on face book And talks to many of us live many nights of the week who reaches out to all of us making us family like then one of your newest reporters Miss Brown is growing in front of our eyes as a top reporter for WESH. Well I can’t believe my channel like frozen when it comes to news time because when I got WESH on tv I know I getting top news ,top sports reports and out standing weather news thanks for the winning team ,lee in stcloud
