Very disappointed 1/5
I have to rate this app very poor because when you open it to see the braking news stories all you get is a commercial and a note saying that they will be back. The article isn’t there and you cannot retrieve it

Latest update created problems.
Scrolling is no longer smooth, it stutters and/or freezes making reading very tedious and annoying.
Hopefully developers will fix this with another update.
STOP PLAYING VIDEO 1/5
Somethings I just want to read the news. Lately every time I click on a news story it automatically jumps to a video.
I don’t want to watch your video. If I or someone else does they can click the play button. Don’t automatically assume we all want to watch the video.
Bait and switch 2/5
By Ad Bait
I had to sit through a lengthy commercial, only to conclude with a pop-up that said the video (which was prompted on the home screen) was not available for streaming. Then why offer it? Now is not the time to boost ad sales. Deliver the news please. People are sick with coronavirus and need information.
I love everyone on the morning team. They all keep me well informed!!! Although I am missing Laura!!!!
Channel 8 app feedback 4/5
Just wanted to let you guys know love the app it’s great getting local weather and news reports when you don’t have access to a tv or radio.I watch channel 8 news every morning before work and I love you guys thanks for keeping us informed
With all the fake news on TV, Channel 8 is always True. Walter Cronkite True. Old School True for sure. Give us all sides of the story. Regardless of where it goes. Truth will win out in history.
Ch. 8 2/5

Weather is on Connecticut. Why?!?
News on Ch 8 2/5
By charlotte gusto
Love Gil Simmons and Alicia on traffic in the am. Ann and Darren are fine in eve but that eve weather man, Joe Fury is horrible. He constantly interrupts himself. Also it isn’t his fault but your practice of teasing a little info and then saying “ get details when I do full forecast later “ is HORRIBLE. Causes ne to change the channel.
Your news is weak, probably because ABC tells you what you can say and result is you always praise Democrat’s and are critical heat vest neutral about President.
Great Northeast CT coverage for a channel along the coast of CT. 5/5

Quick news 5/5
Knowing what’s going on in the New Haven area keeps me updated on traffic & actvities
Excessive weather reporting and send Joe Furey into retirement! He is awful!
Randy in Beacon Falls
Too many notifications 3/5
I like getting channel 8 news on my iPhone daily but the reason I am giving this only 3 stars is due to the number of notifications that I receive. They send WAY TOO much and it’s day and night and almost non stop! I’m also not sure how to get less news stories or if there is even a setting where one can limit the amount of news and stories that channel 8 sends . And another issue for me is the fact that it’s almost always bad news . It would be very welcome to hear ANY good news or human interest pieces . So please less constant bad news and/or useless information and more good deed kinds of news and human interest pieces please, thank you , BSL New Haven
By Ebob 1994
This app is way to self promoting. All I want is a news alert without telling me to watch the news or sending me to a video. I’ve deleted this app and now have NBC30 which only sends news notifications and only a few

Slow app 3/5
App is really slow and to many ads
I can’t watch the weather videos 1/5
I use this app mainly for the weather. However, for the past several weeks it won’t play the video. This is HIGHLY annoying! This is by far the buggiest app I have EVER experienced! It’s always something and it’s very disappointing. This app has been around too long for it to not work more than it works. Do better WTNH... do better.
Love 8!! 5/5
I Love this app.. I have ALWAYS watched channel 8 WTNH... but now living in Shelton,CT I can no longer get this channel on our home TV... I can Only watch and get all the closings, bulletins and new on my IPHONE APP..

Worst app I have and the site in general is terrible due to being constantly inundated with ads. The ONLY reason I use it is for local information.

Channel 8 News coverage 5/5
By Ethel's friend
Great unbiased reporting
Too many advertisements 1/5
They seem more concerned with selling commercials than reporting the news.
Weather videos do not load nor play.
My favorite channel news 5/5
By ana musallam 💋
I like the channel 8 see news whether etc
Joe Feury 4/5
Every time he appears I turn your channel off.
Does he have polaroids of someone in management.He’s the absolute worst and it looks like the anchors hate him.
Sorry but 86 him.
By Joe Capela
Political favored and tired of reading about democratic leaders fighting sitting president instead of being in office for the people
Ok.. now what?! 1/5
App stays frozen, cannot see video. Told it needed update, “click here” only to find that when I hit OPEN, it told me it needed to UPDATE! Tried 3 times and gave up. Don’t want to lose this but if I can’t keep up to date, may have to...
Falling apart 5/5
Not really up to par the latest changes. Horrible job of setting up new app. Sorry I rated 1 instead of 5 (which I rated 5 few years ago.
Too many commercials during the break on livestream 3/5
We just mute them so they are not very effective anyway
I love channel 8 news but I can’t watch it on my fire stick. I don’t have cable. Please put the app on the fire stick. I could only watch them on phone.
Weather videos don’t work 3/5
The weather videos haven’t worked for some time. Thought the update would help but no luck! There is a copy and paste link if I really want to go through the trouble, but why then have the app? Please fix soon!
Everything else runs fine and is well organized.
An Informative App 5/5
I always enjoy using the WTNH 8 application for news. Extremely informative.
News and weather 5/5
The wtnh team delivers with warmth and conciseness in both news weather.
Review of App 1/5
Never works right.
Always spelling errors.
I’ll get a notification about a news alert and then when I open the app it’s not there.
Doesn’t deserve been one star, but you have to click on one to send.
Horrible. Almost every time says “content not available for streaming”. Also keeps telling me I need an update. Click and does NOTHING but says open. No way to get an update. This has been horrible. Will shortly being deleting it,
Live broadcasts 5/5
Not accessible for screen readers viewers. Cannot access the stream on i phone. Poor design
Too slow! 4/5

Great Local news 5/5
By Chief TP
I am very thankful that I am able to pull Channel 8 on my phone. Since I have DIRECTV and they are not allowing it to be put out for all.
How can a big TV company have such a terrible app it doesn’t scroll it shuts off at the terrible channel 8 should be embarrassed
Weatheri agree to much on the weather don't need that much !! 4/5
By nice guy 4
To much on the weather reports. Slacken off !!
When I want to look at certain articles, it tells me I have to update the app first and says “click here to update”. I click and it brings me to the update page, yet there is no update for it.
