Report from Southern Nevada
One can always count on all of it's reports and if were not for WGN news team they always keep up with current breaking news. When returning back to Chicago and Michigan to be with our grandkids we always depend on Tom Skilling wether or not to bring our shorts or pack our Long Johns. Best of health each and every day to News Team and everyone of there family members. Wish you all the best Pat & Bob Las Vegas NV.
For an app designed for my phone it works good. The problem starts when I try to use the AirPlay function. Can’t navigate away from the app or stream stops on the television. Can’t set the phone down while using AirPlay because if I don’t tap the screen every 8 seconds the stream will stop if the screen on my phone goes to sleep. STUPID! Can you guys PLEASE just create an AppleTV app already? Or at the very least get it right with the airplay function. I want to be able to multitask while streaming the show to my Apple TV. That’s the whole point of AirPlay! To allow me to use the screen on my phone to do other things while watching the show on the bigger TV screen. Other streaming apps do this just fine, what’s the problem WGN? I cut cable almost 2 years ago. I miss my WGN with my morning coffee but at this point its becoming obvious you guys don’t care to make an AppleTV app. Deleting this app, it was a nice 30 year run WGN maybe someday you guys will discover AppleTV and make us an app for it. You know, like literally every single other network on the planet has.
News with little detail and lots of dead dogs
So- I don’t know how to process this. I respond to the wgn request for feedback on their site and each time I respond that I would like to see fewer dead dog stories, but each day, more appear. Not more news about the people who have created this environment of hate and, well, dead dogs.
I understand that I might be the only one telling them this but really. I don’t open up the news to find out how a dog dies today. I already donate to animal shelters, etc. I can’t believe that a local news feed just happens upon a story of a dog getting tossed out of a car in all ports of America, put in an oven etc. they must be seeking this garbage out.
I deleted the app. It’s not news, it’s that worst person you know in the lunchroom who is forever talking about horrific things that no one wants to here. I am walking out of that room. Walking out of the WGN ‘news room.’ They can tell their horror stories to whomever, it’s not going to be me. I’ll be reading news from now on. Give money to organizations that help abused animals, do not give to WGN by signing into their app.
