1.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings August 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have this on both my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my Kindle Fire HD. The one on my S4 was downloaded from Google Play. Couldn't get it on my Kindle Fire since I can't use Google Play apps on there so I was extremely happy to see it was FINALLY available through the Amazon app store. I think I used it once to watch a sports story in which my son & daughter were in a sports story and then I recorded it with my S4 so I could send it to my computer to keep it. Well, it still works on my S4 (from Google Play) but the version I downloaded from the Amazon app store no longer works. It says "This app version is no longer supported. Please upgrade to the latest version." When I try to re-purchase it it says I already have the latest version. I've tried uninstalling it from my Kindle Fire, deleting it from my apps on the Amazon app store and deleting it from my Amazon cloud so it was completely wiped out. I then tried to re-purchase it and when I did that and tried to run it it gave me the same "Upgrade Required" message, although I haven't had to upgrade it on my S4. I gave it 1 star on here (Amazon app store) but I would give it 5 stars through Google Play.

It doesn't work. Dead on arrival. (I have said enough, but Amazon apparently will not publish my assessment unless I add more words. A waste of time.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Can watch local news anytime February 7, 2014
Verified Purchase
In my area this app has the local news for 3 TV channels. It allows me to watch the news live or later if I missed the live broadcast. It seems to only work for the local news, no network programming.
