NEW App doesn’t work!
by let down and DISSSS apointed on 2020/01/01 17:56
PLEASE Fix and UPDATE or bring back the old APP which actually functioned they way it is suppose to. No Picture in Picture in the App which it did before. Sometimes it won’t even start. I have been using the Browser Version which does do Pic in Pic except often the Commercials will start in the middle of a segment. And Please STOP REPEATING the Same Commercial OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER !!!!!! See what I mean ANNOYING!
Airplay to Apple TV functionality broken
by Sean E Laugh on 2019/12/09 18:23
When streaming to Apple TV, the app mutes permanently and cannot be undone; additionally, when the iPad or iPhone pushing to the Apple TV is on screen saver, the app stops streaming. Unless you are going to watch solely on your phone or iPad, it’s useless.
Disappointed
by Wakywon on 2019/11/30 22:47
I’m very disappointed with this “new” app!!! Why can’t I get traffic on it anymore??!!! It really came in handy when traveling on the local freeways!!!! BRING THE TRAFFIC BACK TO YOUR APP!!!!!!!! 😕😕😡😡
Good, but frustrating
by Purpledani on 2019/11/23 01:10
I often receive a notification about a story that I am interested in. When I click on the notification, it doesn’t take me to the story (either a different story or the main page). Sometimes I can then find the story, but often times I cannot. What’s the point of sending me a headline if there is no corresponding article? Otherwise I like the app.
Does not work the way it used to be
by SK!77 on 2019/11/20 14:57
When you replace screen from iphone to apple tv it mutes by itself and stream stops once iphone keypad locks. I used this app for ages and never had any issues. New one! not good user experience.
Ktvu app
by 9rlife on 2019/11/16 00:47
Crap app. I use to use it for the live news at noon but no matter what time its airs "live" , it gets stuck buffering. I use iphone xs max and have great signal both cellular and wifi. The app needs work. If i want to read news its ok. But whats the point of having live stream if it doesn't work ?
Unprofessional
by Mousealou on 2019/11/15 05:40
The alerts should be for important information not bs “non news “ The app it self runs well. However, the “journalists” that write for the news stories are sometimes so opinionated stop reading. Typically see the NFL non standing issue, BLM, or something anti gov or police. Just annoying . What happened to just fact based articles.
Terrible
by 1 BOSSS on 2019/11/14 21:15
I updated the app now I’m ready to delete this app and remove it after all these years.. Keep it simple
Keep crashing
by Caboose-4d4 on 2019/11/14 12:14
The current version of the app appears to crash frequently. It cuts off in the middle of the news to multiple commercials and does not play back after. It stays on a “we’ll be right back” screen. Needs work...

Your latest update is hot trash. The interface isn’t user friendly.
Terrible app
by newsdisappointi g on 2019/10/31 15:32
Please consider bringing back your former app. Much more easy to navigate and news was more up to date. I used to use your app everyday but now I open it and after a few minutes make the decision that it’s not worth the time.

Once again, headlines hate police
by Jon413 on 2019/10/21 00:58
“Former Oakland City Council Member injured by OPD during unjustified arrest” by Scott Morris. Who said it was unjustified? Well the person arrested. They’re wearing body cameras, stop posting headlines defaming people without the only evidence of those who know all they have to say are things as if they’ve done nothing wrong. KTVU, you’re hurting your communities. I’ll eat crow when I see these officers “beating” people for no reason.
Review New App
by PV Friend on 2019/10/20 15:51
I always use this app. New version of app, however, doesn’t have feature that allows me to reduce its viewing size so I can simultaneously review my email and listen/watch 2 News. Any way to add that feature? Thanks for your great work delivering local news.

When does story end?
by Chelle4u on 2019/10/13 14:36
There are ads in the middle of the story. I scroll down to finish reading the story only to find the story was over. I was ok with KTVU before the upgrade even though it was more ads than story’s.
Not a fan
by Escrillion on 2019/10/13 13:53
This new page layout really doesn’t work for me. I feel updates are very delayed & that the new page layout is too convoluted. I really enjoyed the way I could navigate through the previous app version. I am considering switching my local new app.
New UI is Hideous
by Acutegrl on 2019/10/12 15:42
The new design is hideous (so much white space) and overpopulated with ads. It feels like a spam site now. Bring back the old design.
New KTVU app is terrible
by Zracer138 on 2019/10/12 05:29
Having KTVU wherever I go is nice. I especially like the live feed for watching the news. However, the top stories page is not updated frequently. The stories often sit there for 2-3 days without anything new being posted.
App keeps closing
by rwang70 on 2019/10/11 03:54
As I scroll down, at a certain point, the app closes on itself. It does it over and over. I never get thru all the news. This doesn’t make me want to use the KTVU app and this is my go-to news app. If this can be fixed, that would help.
The best Bay Area news

all around Best Bay Area News and their weather team can’t be beat!
NOooo!!
by Cyreezy on 2019/10/09 22:31
I just updated the app and I must admit I dislike it a lot! There’s more ads than the older version and the ads look like articles. On top of that every time I click any of the options for local news or national or whatever, it redirects to the website within the app and only shows you about 4 articles with about 6 ads. Let’s not start on the typos!!!

Shout out to the crew!!
by Mudder55 on 2019/10/03 00:14
Just love the different personalities, diversity and presentation of what’s going on in our world! Love them all! I particularly like how you focus on Oakland and the Bay Area. Oh and also the positive things that are going on in Oakland because sometimes we get such a bad rap. One, thing can you all help style the weather guy, Steve, he tries, no shade, he just needs a little help, maybe Frank (impeccable and stylish) can give him hand.
Race Issues
by Gerald, Roni, Kelsey, and Jordan Robinson on 2019/10/02 13:38
When it’s a white suspect the writers states it. When it’s another race the writers just state male or female suspect. If you’re going to call out one race you should do this across the board.
Great App for Quick Local News
by RachmimV on 2019/09/28 16:39
The best part is watching the live TV feed morning news, with traffic reports and weather from Sal and Steve, together with the regular news team, right on my phone as I get ready in the morning. Follow that with the new Mornings at Nine (I think it's called), with longer news coverage and fewer ads. News stories are updated thru the day, too.

Alerts
by A_MILLUN on 2019/09/22 14:44
This app could be great if when you actually get an alert it takes you to that story. Instead it takes you to some live page and then you have to find the story under something else.

We enjoy watching the news first thing in the morning. It is a great way to start the day. It’s just like seeing good friends or family. The commercials are really poorly organized. It’s very hard to watch the same thing three times in a row although mostly it’s twice in a row. Varying and interspersing them is important. Pleas space them out. I don’t want to turn it off for a minute and then turn it on again. I mostly just mute them or walk away.

Terrible service
by Draggu on 2019/08/27 15:38
This is the worst app I've ever used. Audio comes on for 2 to 3 seconds and then goes off for up to a minute. Impossible to understand what is going on. The only time it works correctly is at 4 o'clock in the morning. The station needs to fix this if they expect people to use it! Commercials repeat at least 3 times back to back. Half the time the app won’t load. This is frustrating since this is my only way of watching the news.
Crash
by calove37 on 2019/08/26 20:01
App continues to crash for past couple of days. No fix in sight.
Terrible
by Bay Area rater on 2019/08/23 13:37
Video links rarely work, the editing in articles is non-existent. The fact that you have to watch the same 30 second ad before every video is ridiculous. Other news apps are totally different.

Incompetent Programming
by 240 Z Man on 2019/08/20 12:26
Great app. To bad the programming directors are incompetent. Replaying the same ads over and over consecutively is so irritating that I don’t even watch it anymore. The final straw was when they played one ad 7 times in a row. I’ve complained to both the app department and the programming directors and they don’t seem to care. Both KPIX and KGO (on CBS APP) are better. They actually hire programming directors that know how to mix up their ads! 8/20/19: Nothing changes! With all the negative feedback about their commercial, often times repeating the same commercials 4-5 times in a row, they keep doing it. They obviously don’t care about these ratings or the quality of their product.

Very recommend news app. Always keeps me updated
Needs some work
by sonomacountyatheart on 2017/08/02 20:02
I moved out of the Bay Area 1 year ago but am still a long time loyal KTVU viewer thanks to the app. I appreciate that the "live" video will replay if there is no actual live broadcast at that time. Although it does fail to play on occasion saying that the video is unavailable. But I am very happy that I can still watch most of the time. However, there are a couple of things that annoy me about the news alerts that are pushed to my phone. Please do not send a push notification if there is no story on the app yet. It is really frustrating when I see an alert that I want details on and find myself having to search KTVU competitor websites to get the story. Also, please evaluate which notifications go out. Some contain errors (with spelling or even content), some are really not worthy, some worthy stories are missed, and some are just ridiculous. For example, I saw one that read, "Coroner says victim in accident has died." Well, that's pretty obvious if the coroner was there. But what accident? Where did it happen? Was it a car accident? Plane? Train? Oil refinery? So many questions... and no story on the app to find out. I guess we will never know.
Could be a five with changes
by Pdawg70 on 2019/07/17 15:43
While I believe KTVU news is the best television news outlet in the Oakland Bay Area, the streaming news feed could use some changes. First, please update the ad contents! The same commercial with Kanye Kardashian's offensive and idiotic notion that “slavery... was a choice” should have never aired. Unfortunately, it in high rotation and advertises a program that is neither news or newsworthy. Also, we don’t need to see multiple ads for KTVU between news segments — if we didn’t like the station, we would not be using the app. Run PSA’s instead — give something back to the community that supports you. Second, it could be my older equipment, but I experience the app freezing several times an hour. I do like that I can see the 10 o’clock news at 11:30pm — I like how the 10 and 11 news repeats; however, it appears you have to have logged in between 10-11:30 to enjoy this feature. Just run the programs repeatedly until the 4am program starts so people getting home late can watch the news regardless of the time.
App Design Disappointment
by I'mThe2nd on 2018/06/06 03:00
I’m a loyal KTVU viewer and trust the 10 o’ clock news to get informed every night. Im very disappointed however in the way the KTVU App is designed. The app just doesn’t quite match up with the layouts of the other Bay Area Networks. If I can suggest a all out design change that matches the quality of the news I’ve watched since I was 6 years old. KTVU is the number station in the Bay Area but the app falls well short of my expectations. Local news stations that I’ve downloaded that have very nice designs and layouts are the larger market ABC affiliates and KSBY 6 in Santa Barbara, CA. I’m not sure this review will have a considerable impact but as a longtime KTVU Viewer I want more from my mobile news experience. Thank you.
Love the news cast

The best Bay Area news station
by Birdman322 on 2018/01/09 17:17
I’m 60 years old and have watched news from different TV stations throughout my life. I started watching KTVU news when Dennis Richmond was an anchor. Ever since then it’s the only news I watch. I love the ten o’clock news the most, because that’s when I’m relaxing and able to pay attention the most. I also love how the anchors will actually go out before or after work and comment on FB about how a certain story affected them. Frank and Julie are the best and true professionals. Keep up the great work everyone, we do notice! Larry B
Great news not worth trying to avoid commercials
by m5gorrf on 2019/07/25 18:15
Am an avid watcher of channel 2 news but almost never do it on my device because often the commercials cannot be muted or moved away from even when I close the app and come back at times commercials keep running before I can get back to the news so I just abandon it completely I'll find some other source if I keep hitting this

I have every tv station app on my iPad and iPhone. KTVU is the first app I go to for breaking news whether I am in town or traveling out of state. It shows all up to date news in an easy scroll. The only problem I experience fairly regularly is it often goes to a live broadcast without any action on my part. That's not good when it's late at night and my wife is asleep. I hope KTVU reads this and does a bug fix.
Shout out to the crew!!
by Mudder55 on 2019/10/03 00:14
Just love the different personalities, diversity and presentation of what’s going on in our world! Love them all! I particularly like how you focus on Oakland and the Bay Area. Oh and also the positive things that are going on in Oakland because sometimes we get such a bad rap. One, thing can you all help style the weather guy, Steve, he tries, no shade, he just needs a little help, maybe Frank (impeccable and stylish) can give him hand.
Good start but needs work
by Luvvygirl on 2018/04/01 09:47
I like the app but a lot times you get an alert, click on it and it opens in Safari where it sits loading forever. If you close out cause you think your hung up then try to go back there's no way to get back to the alert. I'd wish the app handled everything without opening Safari and that you had a way to see your alerts again in case there was a hiccup. Also the add that's at the bottom and expands out couple of minutes is annoying as hell.
Great app... when it works
by EmmeNois on 2018/05/04 17:19
KTVU is my favorite local news station. When I cancelled my TV subscription I decided to use this app instead. This was about 4 months ago. When this app is working it is great; same as if still was watching on TV. However the app often seems to crash/freeze up or not be available. So a bit frustrating. So I have two other news apps downloaded for backup alternatives. That said this is again my preferred channel. So hoping they can fix the app issues.
Great App for Quick Local News
by RachmimV on 2019/09/28 16:39
The best part is watching the live TV feed morning news, with traffic reports and weather from Sal and Steve, together with the regular news team, right on my phone as I get ready in the morning. Follow that with the new Mornings at Nine (I think it's called), with longer news coverage and fewer ads. News stories are updated thru the day, too.
Julie Haener, KTVU News
by DGabe44 on 2019/08/30 23:57
Classy, always ready, dresses/looks great, credible, not biased, warm/sincere voice, smooth presentation, great smile, always pleasant, like a friend.....we’ve been watching, and have favored, Ch 2 News for decades, and have found that most of the qualities noted above can be applied to most every Ch 2 News team member. You’ve got a winning philosophy, style, selection & training program. Amazing!! Please keep it going!!
Good live feed!
by Cleopatra 242 on 2018/07/06 13:09
It’s almost exact in timing with the news on television. And I hardly ever have issues w/ clarity or quality. However, the same commercials on the feed over & over & over & over & over again can drive a person mad! Did I mention the commercials repeat? :/
Always has been the best!
by Agent316Rocklin on 2019/06/27 09:49
Growing up in the Bay Area, KTVU news was part of our family’s daily lives. Then when I raised my own kids just outside the channel’s region of coverage, I rely on the KTVU news APP to keep me up to date on the events in SF, and all the surrounding Bay Area cities. KTVU news anchors and reporters are dedicated professionals who deliver the news in a timely, accurate, and unbiased manner.
Crashes and freezes constantly
by .yfytdfliuhd on 2019/04/11 14:46
The live stream is not reliable. I have to close and reopen the app at least once every couple minutes. Some days are better than others. I have great WiFi, an updated new ipad that doesn’t have streaming problems with anything else. If the live stream worked like it should then I would have given it 5 stars. Also, the weather doesn’t seem to be very accurate. I use the weather underground app, it’s fantastic and very accurate. KTVU please fix your app!
Love local news with no politics
by Love my local ktvu live! on 2019/01/17 15:30
I love getting our local news, the traffic and weather help my husband and I in our jobs every day. I’m thankful ktvu focuses on local stories and although they hit the top political stories they really don’t mash on them and I’m so sick of politics I don’t watch those stations anymore. Thanks for giving us clean useable local news.
Good, but notifications are annoying
by Dreasmom on 2018/08/09 17:28
In general, I prefer KTVU news, and so I like also having the app for up-to-date stories. But the push notifications are getting out of hand. There were 15 sent yesterday, and so far today (it’s now 10:27am) there have been 7 starting at 5am. That’s ridiculous. This app is becoming the stalker x-boyfriend blowing up my phone like that. Yes, I know I can turn off the notifications, but don’t want them gone completely.
Good news & bad news
by JoeMtnView on 2017/05/20 19:23
I like KTVU Fox 2 news, that's why I chose this news app. While I very much enjoy watching the 10 o'clock news every night and Mornings on 2 every morning and really like the news teams, I don't enjoy the app as much. It's not updated very often. A story of a fire posted as "breaking news" for 24 hours? I don't think so. I can find more up to date news on NBC Bay Area news app. But I think of myself as a loyal Fox 2 news viewer. So here I am. I just wish I wasn't stuck reading yesterday's news.

by g.girley on 2018/12/01 05:40
I love receiving the latest broadcast news, weather forecast, sports, travel/commute and other important and relevant events happening in the Bay Area, the United States and across the world! Moreover, since I am connected with KTVU news on my tv, iPad and on my iPhone 10 max , I receive in-depth and informative news coverage when it happens Thank you KTVU news crew
Live streaming failures
by CaptSatCom on 2019/02/10 16:34
In the last week, live streaming has become unusable, regardless of the device used. Play will stop after at most 30 seconds, requiring a restart. Many times that interval is 10 seconds or less. Also have noticed much more “choppiness” of the feed, with play stopping, then restarting after a second, sometimes with what amounts to a replay of the feed just before the stop. This has been my go-to app for news for some time, and it would be great to be able to use it again.
KTVU app
by Hyside76 on 2018/01/23 18:39
I like this app with its news feeds coming across the front page of my phone. My only complaint is if I want to read an article in the ticker, if I don’t swipe it correctly, or my phone reads my thumb print and opens the phone before I even have a chance to see what it was, then I can go back to it, or what really makes me unhappy, is that if I open the app to find the article it’s not even there. Kinda lame.
Favorite news
by Kauaigal on 2019/05/14 16:12
This is my go to news app first thing in the morning when I’m not quite ready to get out of bed! When traveling, it’s the best way to keep up with what’s going on at home. I love being able to watch live no matter where I am. Thanks, too, for the timely news alerts.
Love KTVU
by Ryan electric on 2019/09/02 17:27
I grew up here in the Bay Area. I remember Dennis Richmond as well as other news personal. I watch every morning until I leave the house. I truly enjoy the KTVU app on my phone because it keeps me up to date. I look at it when I have a few free minutes throughout the day. Keep up the great job you are doing!
Best of Bay Area news on the go!
by Jessica Moylan on 2019/07/04 01:59
This is my go to station first and foremost. I enjoy the this app because it's a great source of local news as well in north, south, & east bay. It helps to watch on my Apple TV through the phone Bluetooth device. The breaking news is helpful too since I don't watch a whole lot of TV.
Long Time Viewer
by Akorn25676 on 2019/01/15 15:02
I grew up in San Lorenzo in the ‘60’s and 70’s, and have been a Bay Area native for all of my 50+ years. KTVU has been my staple for local news. It’s amazing to me in this day and age to see the longevity of all of the anchors staying on at a job for the number of years they do. They bring my neighborhoods to my open conscious every day.
Good, but frustrating
by Purpledani on 2019/11/23 01:10
I often receive a notification about a story that I am interested in. When I click on the notification, it doesn’t take me to the story (either a different story or the main page). Sometimes I can then find the story, but often times I cannot. What’s the point of sending me a headline if there is no corresponding article? Otherwise I like the app.
Great news station, frustrating app
by Seorsa10 on 2018/02/13 21:02
I really Like this news station. This app drives me crazy though. The alerts do not often connect me to the story when I open them. It opens Safari, and usually to a blank page. I hate Safari, and use Chrome. I would very much prefer to have the alerts open to the story in the app. I would also like the alerts to open the correct story.
Love my news app
by Nomoremasa23 on 2018/06/26 19:53
Always keeps me updated with their notifications. Love watching the news live from my bathroom when I’m getting ready for work or washing dishes in my kitchen just place my phone in a safe location and I am able to keep up with what’s happening!
KTVU 2 New
by D.T. Rich-Town on 2019/05/09 07:08
This is a BayArea channel that gets right in there with the people and knows the areas and bring us up n close to what’s happening in our areas. They continue to put us first by reporting on the spot. And making sure all involved have an opportunity to be heard. Thanks for the Power of 2, KTVU ✌🏽✌🏽😎
Love it!
by Bay Area at Heart on 2019/07/07 15:46
KTVU is the best! I have watch KTVU religiously for over 25 years. I recently moved out of the area and continue to stream KTVU from my new location so I can stay in the loop with what’s happening in the bay area. They morning team does an excellent job of covering all issues local and nationwide. Keep up the great work!
Review New App
by PV Friend on 2019/10/20 15:51
I always use this app. New version of app, however, doesn’t have feature that allows me to reduce its viewing size so I can simultaneously review my email and listen/watch 2 News. Any way to add that feature? Thanks for your great work delivering local news.
Why do your commercials play better than the newscast
by #stopping on 2019/06/04 19:02
Kind of tired of all the lag and stops during your newscast especially when they are important stories and the weather always stopping stopping stopping wait for it stopping again
Love KTVU. Hate this app.
by hortha on 2018/01/09 05:46
I’m a Bay Area native and grew up with KTVU news in my house since I was first conscious. I still prefer their newscast to the others. It’s disappointing that this app is so continually buggy and awkward, despite updates. One of my biggest pet peeves regarding the app is when I respond to a notification, first it opens the KTVU News app, but then just as quickly launches Safari to display the story instead. Lame. I’ve provided feedback about this with ktvu and still it remains an issue. Also, so often the main page just freezes and selecting stories does no good. The act of quit swiping the app closed and then reopening only sometimes helps but otherwise it’s just S.O.L. Strange that such a great channel and news organization would have such a sub-par app.
Your apps
by tomlinda on 2019/02/28 13:52
My wife and I both are a big fan of channel 2 news. We have you every morning, but for the last couple months. The apps keep buffing for lags and most of out time this apps drain out phone batteries. We can start with 100% and after 15 minutes our batteries down to 20%. We tried to delete the apps and redownload again, but still happened again. I also use my work WiFi and it’s still slow. Our friends have the same experience
KTVU, I love you!
by Dumbunny on 2018/06/05 17:52
This is, hands down, the best new station, and news app available! I moved to the outskirts of the Bay Area where my tv station doesn’t get KTVU news. I depend on the live app for coverage! It’s wonderful! Thank you for the up to the minute texts, too, of current issues and breaking news. Excellence is KTVU!
Terrible service
by Draggu on 2019/08/27 15:38
This is the worst app I've ever used. Audio comes on for 2 to 3 seconds and then goes off for up to a minute. Impossible to understand what is going on. The only time it works correctly is at 4 o'clock in the morning. The station needs to fix this if they expect people to use it! Commercials repeat at least 3 times back to back. Half the time the app won’t load. This is frustrating since this is my only way of watching the news.
Decent app, but power drainer
by dkziggy on 2018/12/13 18:24
Been using this app for a while. Good source of news, but not enough variety so only worth opening once or twice at most per day. Not a biggie. The big gripe for me is that it is a big power drain. It's constantly at the top of my battery use culprits when using the live video, even though I only use it for 5 minutes a day in the morning.
“There’s only one...”
by Gilda likes it on 2019/07/16 05:53
I live in Seattle but regularly log into the KTVU website to find out what’s happening in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The KTVU website makes it easy to find all the best and most extensive TV coverage Northern California has to offer. As they used to say, “There’s only one 2.”
KTVU - weekend morning's
by David in SJC on 2019/05/26 06:40
I must admit, I do not watch the national Fox News. I do not agree with "fair and balanced news", I want it to be accurate. I started watching Fox News on the weekends, in the morning. I truly enjoy the personal touch they give the news. Accurate, but humanistic. Claudine and Frank are excellent.
KTVU
by Sky Thinker on 2018/11/06 02:16
Love the local reporting and the balance of what news should be. It’s time to stop calling it fake news. The first amendment does allow this freedom of expression; and we the people do have the right to discern and listen to make the appropriate choices regardless of the views. Keep up the good work.
Notifications don't open in the app
by Scorpion_Ricky on 2018/08/04 04:39
Hi, this is a very annoying issue that's been going for a long time. Every time I get a notification from the app, I click on the notification expecting to read the story in the app, but instead it opens the app and then it opens my browser with the story. If the app won't open the story, then why launch the app at all? UPDATE: It's been months since I wrote this review and the notifications still won't open in the app. Very annoying.
Can’t watch live TV
by Get_it_done777 on 2019/02/11 15:01
In last few days, I couldn’t watch the live TV anymore. How could this happen when we’re in Silicon Valley? Please fix it quickly. Thanks! Previous review: I have watched Channel 2 news for many years, and really like this App, too. It’s easy to navigate, plus it can continue playing on iPad when I use other Apps at the same time, so I won’t miss any news. Please make this continuous play feature available on iPhone, then you deserve ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thanks.
Local Doom and Gloom & Copious Clickbait
by Dre Boogs on 2019/01/14 18:08
The platform works just fine outside of the jumble of irritating ads strewn in between paragraphs and at article’s end. It seems very unfortunate that a news app, theoretically in place to share true and real information, has so much untrue click bait material surrounding its facts. Finally, be wary of granting notification permissions as their headlines are daily buzzkills. This past Christmas was ushered in the notifications about fatalities.
Why does it open Safari?
by betseylou94010 on 2017/05/02 13:54
I should be able to read that article I want in the news app. Half the time you got a news alert and go to open it and can't find it in the app nor can you find it online! Very annoying I wish they would return it to the state it used to be because it was once a wonderful app
Like KTVU
by Grandma D 2001 on 2018/07/02 16:06
I have been watching channel 2 since I was 5 years old. That is over 50 years ago. My grandparents started me watching it. Over the years, I have enjoyed the newscasts and the reporters dedication. Today there's no anchor or reporter I don't like. Keep up the good work.
KTVU News
by Yoli Hi! on 2018/11/13 22:13
I moved to Solano County three years ago, but family & friends still reside in Alameda County. Lived there 65 years & always want to keep up with their local news. Channel KTVU news doesn’t ignore anybody, or any city! Love all their reporting ! Thanks for doing such a through job!❤️
Love KTVU!
by DB-DB on 2018/02/03 16:46
I love I can keep up with my favorite local news station. Began watching news with some of these people when I was a kid and this app allows my access to them anywhere. The app is easy to navigate and responds well. Not a lot of unnecessary clutter all over. They keep the click bait at bey if you will.
Timely local news
by Mark in Oakland on 2018/09/06 15:50
I appreciate being able to check on local news with a glance at the phone. National stories too. Sometimes the writing is a little off, like it’s a rough draft. But that’s ok.
Worst app of all time
by Boat Lover guy on 2019/01/03 03:27
I have tried to contact the developers of this annoyance but they never respond. The video starts and stop constantly looping the same scene over and over, the video freezes, and it's usually about 50 to 60% of the time f'd up. The same 3 commercials always play just fine, but repeat sometimes 10 times in a row. More commercials than content. None of my other video or news apps have this problem. Screw these guys

Airplay to Apple TV functionality broken
by Sean E Laugh on 2019/12/09 18:23
When streaming to Apple TV, the app mutes permanently and cannot be undone; additionally, when the iPad or iPhone pushing to the Apple TV is on screen saver, the app stops streaming. Unless you are going to watch solely on your phone or iPad, it’s useless.

by SK!77 on 2019/11/20 14:57

Ktvu app
by 9rlife on 2019/11/16 00:47
Crap app. I use to use it for the live news at noon but no matter what time its airs "live" , it gets stuck buffering. I use iphone xs max and have great signal both cellular and wifi. The app needs work. If i want to read news its ok. But whats the point of having live stream if it doesn't work ?
Unprofessional
by Mousealou on 2019/11/15 05:40
The alerts should be for important information not bs “non news “ The app it self runs well. However, the “journalists” that write for the news stories are sometimes so opinionated stop reading. Typically see the NFL non standing issue, BLM, or something anti gov or police. Just annoying . What happened to just fact based articles.
Terrible

Keep crashing
by Caboose-4d4 on 2019/11/14 12:14
The current version of the app appears to crash frequently. It cuts off in the middle of the news to multiple commercials and does not play back after. It stays on a “we’ll be right back” screen. Needs work...

Once again, headlines hate police
by Jon413 on 2019/10/21 00:58
“Former Oakland City Council Member injured by OPD during unjustified arrest” by Scott Morris. Who said it was unjustified? Well the person arrested. They’re wearing body cameras, stop posting headlines defaming people without the only evidence of those who know all they have to say are things as if they’ve done nothing wrong. KTVU, you’re hurting your communities. I’ll eat crow when I see these officers “beating” people for no reason.

by Chelle4u on 2019/10/13 14:36
There are ads in the middle of the story. I scroll down to finish reading the story only to find the story was over. I was ok with KTVU before the upgrade even though it was more ads than story’s.
Not a fan
by Escrillion on 2019/10/13 13:53
This new page layout really doesn’t work for me. I feel updates are very delayed & that the new page layout is too convoluted. I really enjoyed the way I could navigate through the previous app version. I am considering switching my local new app.
New UI is Hideous
by Acutegrl on 2019/10/12 15:42
The new design is hideous (so much white space) and overpopulated with ads. It feels like a spam site now. Bring back the old design.
New KTVU app is terrible
by Zracer138 on 2019/10/12 05:29
Having KTVU wherever I go is nice. I especially like the live feed for watching the news. However, the top stories page is not updated frequently. The stories often sit there for 2-3 days without anything new being posted.
App keeps closing
by rwang70 on 2019/10/11 03:54
As I scroll down, at a certain point, the app closes on itself. It does it over and over. I never get thru all the news. This doesn’t make me want to use the KTVU app and this is my go-to news app. If this can be fixed, that would help.
The best Bay Area news
by middletown greta on 2019/10/10 01:43
all around Best Bay Area News and their weather team can’t be beat!
NOooo!!
by Cyreezy on 2019/10/09 22:31
I just updated the app and I must admit I dislike it a lot! There’s more ads than the older version and the ads look like articles. On top of that every time I click any of the options for local news or national or whatever, it redirects to the website within the app and only shows you about 4 articles with about 6 ads. Let’s not start on the typos!!!

Just love the different personalities, diversity and presentation of what’s going on in our world! Love them all! I particularly like how you focus on Oakland and the Bay Area. Oh and also the positive things that are going on in Oakland because sometimes we get such a bad rap. One, thing can you all help style the weather guy, Steve, he tries, no shade, he just needs a little help, maybe Frank (impeccable and stylish) can give him hand.
Race Issues
by Gerald, Roni, Kelsey, and Jordan Robinson on 2019/10/02 13:38
When it’s a white suspect the writers states it. When it’s another race the writers just state male or female suspect. If you’re going to call out one race you should do this across the board.
Great App for Quick Local News
by RachmimV on 2019/09/28 16:39
The best part is watching the live TV feed morning news, with traffic reports and weather from Sal and Steve, together with the regular news team, right on my phone as I get ready in the morning. Follow that with the new Mornings at Nine (I think it's called), with longer news coverage and fewer ads. News stories are updated thru the day, too.

Alerts
by A_MILLUN on 2019/09/22 14:44
This app could be great if when you actually get an alert it takes you to that story. Instead it takes you to some live page and then you have to find the story under something else.

We enjoy watching the news first thing in the morning. It is a great way to start the day. It’s just like seeing good friends or family. The commercials are really poorly organized. It’s very hard to watch the same thing three times in a row although mostly it’s twice in a row. Varying and interspersing them is important. Pleas space them out. I don’t want to turn it off for a minute and then turn it on again. I mostly just mute them or walk away.

Terrible service
by Draggu on 2019/08/27 15:38
This is the worst app I've ever used. Audio comes on for 2 to 3 seconds and then goes off for up to a minute. Impossible to understand what is going on. The only time it works correctly is at 4 o'clock in the morning. The station needs to fix this if they expect people to use it! Commercials repeat at least 3 times back to back. Half the time the app won’t load. This is frustrating since this is my only way of watching the news.
Crash

Terrible
by Bay Area rater on 2019/08/23 13:37
Video links rarely work, the editing in articles is non-existent. The fact that you have to watch the same 30 second ad before every video is ridiculous. Other news apps are totally different.

Incompetent Programming
by 240 Z Man on 2019/08/20 12:26
Great app. To bad the programming directors are incompetent. Replaying the same ads over and over consecutively is so irritating that I don’t even watch it anymore. The final straw was when they played one ad 7 times in a row. I’ve complained to both the app department and the programming directors and they don’t seem to care. Both KPIX and KGO (on CBS APP) are better. They actually hire programming directors that know how to mix up their ads! 8/20/19: Nothing changes! With all the negative feedback about their commercial, often times repeating the same commercials 4-5 times in a row, they keep doing it. They obviously don’t care about these ratings or the quality of their product.

I haven’t been able to use the app since several days ago. I gotta say I liked it and it was my way of finding out what’s going on in my area, however, I can’t rely on the app anymore since it hasn’t been available for streaming. So I’ll still give it 2 stars but not working anymore.

The app I good. I been using it for few years. The reason of one star is because of the new advertisement adds. From UBER and FAIR. The add is really long. And is the same in every video. Sometimes i see the add and I’m not available to see the video news. If I restart I have to watch the same add. Please make the uber add short. By 50%. Thank you

Needs some work
by sonomacountyatheart on 2017/08/02 20:02
I moved out of the Bay Area 1 year ago but am still a long time loyal KTVU viewer thanks to the app. I appreciate that the "live" video will replay if there is no actual live broadcast at that time. Although it does fail to play on occasion saying that the video is unavailable. But I am very happy that I can still watch most of the time. However, there are a couple of things that annoy me about the news alerts that are pushed to my phone. Please do not send a push notification if there is no story on the app yet. It is really frustrating when I see an alert that I want details on and find myself having to search KTVU competitor websites to get the story. Also, please evaluate which notifications go out. Some contain errors (with spelling or even content), some are really not worthy, some worthy stories are missed, and some are just ridiculous. For example, I saw one that read, "Coroner says victim in accident has died." Well, that's pretty obvious if the coroner was there. But what accident? Where did it happen? Was it a car accident? Plane? Train? Oil refinery? So many questions... and no story on the app to find out. I guess we will never know.
Could be a five with changes
by Pdawg70 on 2019/07/17 15:43
While I believe KTVU news is the best television news outlet in the Oakland Bay Area, the streaming news feed could use some changes. First, please update the ad contents! The same commercial with Kanye Kardashian's offensive and idiotic notion that “slavery... was a choice” should have never aired. Unfortunately, it in high rotation and advertises a program that is neither news or newsworthy. Also, we don’t need to see multiple ads for KTVU between news segments — if we didn’t like the station, we would not be using the app. Run PSA’s instead — give something back to the community that supports you. Second, it could be my older equipment, but I experience the app freezing several times an hour. I do like that I can see the 10 o’clock news at 11:30pm — I like how the 10 and 11 news repeats; however, it appears you have to have logged in between 10-11:30 to enjoy this feature. Just run the programs repeatedly until the 4am program starts so people getting home late can watch the news regardless of the time.
App Design Disappointment
by I'mThe2nd on 2018/06/06 03:00
I’m a loyal KTVU viewer and trust the 10 o’ clock news to get informed every night. Im very disappointed however in the way the KTVU App is designed. The app just doesn’t quite match up with the layouts of the other Bay Area Networks. If I can suggest a all out design change that matches the quality of the news I’ve watched since I was 6 years old. KTVU is the number station in the Bay Area but the app falls well short of my expectations. Local news stations that I’ve downloaded that have very nice designs and layouts are the larger market ABC affiliates and KSBY 6 in Santa Barbara, CA. I’m not sure this review will have a considerable impact but as a longtime KTVU Viewer I want more from my mobile news experience. Thank you.

The best Bay Area news station
by Birdman322 on 2018/01/09 17:17
I’m 60 years old and have watched news from different TV stations throughout my life. I started watching KTVU news when Dennis Richmond was an anchor. Ever since then it’s the only news I watch. I love the ten o’clock news the most, because that’s when I’m relaxing and able to pay attention the most. I also love how the anchors will actually go out before or after work and comment on FB about how a certain story affected them. Frank and Julie are the best and true professionals. Keep up the great work everyone, we do notice! Larry B
Great news not worth trying to avoid commercials
by m5gorrf on 2019/07/25 18:15
Am an avid watcher of channel 2 news but almost never do it on my device because often the commercials cannot be muted or moved away from even when I close the app and come back at times commercials keep running before I can get back to the news so I just abandon it completely I'll find some other source if I keep hitting this

by Douglasnkeener on 2017/10/31 23:39
I have every tv station app on my iPad and iPhone. KTVU is the first app I go to for breaking news whether I am in town or traveling out of state. It shows all up to date news in an easy scroll. The only problem I experience fairly regularly is it often goes to a live broadcast without any action on my part. That's not good when it's late at night and my wife is asleep. I hope KTVU reads this and does a bug fix.

Good start but needs work
by Luvvygirl on 2018/04/01 09:47
I like the app but a lot times you get an alert, click on it and it opens in Safari where it sits loading forever. If you close out cause you think your hung up then try to go back there's no way to get back to the alert. I'd wish the app handled everything without opening Safari and that you had a way to see your alerts again in case there was a hiccup. Also the add that's at the bottom and expands out couple of minutes is annoying as hell.
Great app... when it works
by EmmeNois on 2018/05/04 17:19
KTVU is my favorite local news station. When I cancelled my TV subscription I decided to use this app instead. This was about 4 months ago. When this app is working it is great; same as if still was watching on TV. However the app often seems to crash/freeze up or not be available. So a bit frustrating. So I have two other news apps downloaded for backup alternatives. That said this is again my preferred channel. So hoping they can fix the app issues.

by Cleopatra 242 on 2018/07/06 13:09
It’s almost exact in timing with the news on television. And I hardly ever have issues w/ clarity or quality. However, the same commercials on the feed over & over & over & over & over again can drive a person mad! Did I mention the commercials repeat? :/
Always has been the best!
by Agent316Rocklin on 2019/06/27 09:49
Growing up in the Bay Area, KTVU news was part of our family’s daily lives. Then when I raised my own kids just outside the channel’s region of coverage, I rely on the KTVU news APP to keep me up to date on the events in SF, and all the surrounding Bay Area cities. KTVU news anchors and reporters are dedicated professionals who deliver the news in a timely, accurate, and unbiased manner.
Crashes and freezes constantly
by .yfytdfliuhd on 2019/04/11 14:46
The live stream is not reliable. I have to close and reopen the app at least once every couple minutes. Some days are better than others. I have great WiFi, an updated new ipad that doesn’t have streaming problems with anything else. If the live stream worked like it should then I would have given it 5 stars. Also, the weather doesn’t seem to be very accurate. I use the weather underground app, it’s fantastic and very accurate. KTVU please fix your app!

I love getting our local news, the traffic and weather help my husband and I in our jobs every day. I’m thankful ktvu focuses on local stories and although they hit the top political stories they really don’t mash on them and I’m so sick of politics I don’t watch those stations anymore. Thanks for giving us clean useable local news.
Good, but notifications are annoying
by Dreasmom on 2018/08/09 17:28
In general, I prefer KTVU news, and so I like also having the app for up-to-date stories. But the push notifications are getting out of hand. There were 15 sent yesterday, and so far today (it’s now 10:27am) there have been 7 starting at 5am. That’s ridiculous. This app is becoming the stalker x-boyfriend blowing up my phone like that. Yes, I know I can turn off the notifications, but don’t want them gone completely.
Good news & bad news
by JoeMtnView on 2017/05/20 19:23
I like KTVU Fox 2 news, that's why I chose this news app. While I very much enjoy watching the 10 o'clock news every night and Mornings on 2 every morning and really like the news teams, I don't enjoy the app as much. It's not updated very often. A story of a fire posted as "breaking news" for 24 hours? I don't think so. I can find more up to date news on NBC Bay Area news app. But I think of myself as a loyal Fox 2 news viewer. So here I am. I just wish I wasn't stuck reading yesterday's news.

Live streaming failures
by CaptSatCom on 2019/02/10 16:34
In the last week, live streaming has become unusable, regardless of the device used. Play will stop after at most 30 seconds, requiring a restart. Many times that interval is 10 seconds or less. Also have noticed much more “choppiness” of the feed, with play stopping, then restarting after a second, sometimes with what amounts to a replay of the feed just before the stop. This has been my go-to app for news for some time, and it would be great to be able to use it again.
KTVU app
by Hyside76 on 2018/01/23 18:39
I like this app with its news feeds coming across the front page of my phone. My only complaint is if I want to read an article in the ticker, if I don’t swipe it correctly, or my phone reads my thumb print and opens the phone before I even have a chance to see what it was, then I can go back to it, or what really makes me unhappy, is that if I open the app to find the article it’s not even there. Kinda lame.

Best of Bay Area news on the go!
by Jessica Moylan on 2019/07/04 01:59
This is my go to station first and foremost. I enjoy the this app because it's a great source of local news as well in north, south, & east bay. It helps to watch on my Apple TV through the phone Bluetooth device. The breaking news is helpful too since I don't watch a whole lot of TV.
Long Time Viewer

I grew up in San Lorenzo in the ‘60’s and 70’s, and have been a Bay Area native for all of my 50+ years. KTVU has been my staple for local news. It’s amazing to me in this day and age to see the longevity of all of the anchors staying on at a job for the number of years they do. They bring my neighborhoods to my open conscious every day.
Good, but frustrating
by Purpledani on 2019/11/23 01:10
I often receive a notification about a story that I am interested in. When I click on the notification, it doesn’t take me to the story (either a different story or the main page). Sometimes I can then find the story, but often times I cannot. What’s the point of sending me a headline if there is no corresponding article? Otherwise I like the app.
Great news station, frustrating app
by Seorsa10 on 2018/02/13 21:02
I really Like this news station. This app drives me crazy though. The alerts do not often connect me to the story when I open them. It opens Safari, and usually to a blank page. I hate Safari, and use Chrome. I would very much prefer to have the alerts open to the story in the app. I would also like the alerts to open the correct story.
Love my news app
by Nomoremasa23 on 2018/06/26 19:53
Always keeps me updated with their notifications. Love watching the news live from my bathroom when I’m getting ready for work or washing dishes in my kitchen just place my phone in a safe location and I am able to keep up with what’s happening!
KTVU 2 New
by D.T. Rich-Town on 2019/05/09 07:08
This is a BayArea channel that gets right in there with the people and knows the areas and bring us up n close to what’s happening in our areas. They continue to put us first by reporting on the spot. And making sure all involved have an opportunity to be heard. Thanks for the Power of 2, KTVU ✌🏽✌🏽😎
Love it!
by Bay Area at Heart on 2019/07/07 15:46
KTVU is the best! I have watch KTVU religiously for over 25 years. I recently moved out of the area and continue to stream KTVU from my new location so I can stay in the loop with what’s happening in the bay area. They morning team does an excellent job of covering all issues local and nationwide. Keep up the great work!
Review New App
by PV Friend on 2019/10/20 15:51
I always use this app. New version of app, however, doesn’t have feature that allows me to reduce its viewing size so I can simultaneously review my email and listen/watch 2 News. Any way to add that feature? Thanks for your great work delivering local news.
Why do your commercials play better than the newscast
by #stopping on 2019/06/04 19:02
Kind of tired of all the lag and stops during your newscast especially when they are important stories and the weather always stopping stopping stopping wait for it stopping again
Love KTVU. Hate this app.
by hortha on 2018/01/09 05:46
I’m a Bay Area native and grew up with KTVU news in my house since I was first conscious. I still prefer their newscast to the others. It’s disappointing that this app is so continually buggy and awkward, despite updates. One of my biggest pet peeves regarding the app is when I respond to a notification, first it opens the KTVU News app, but then just as quickly launches Safari to display the story instead. Lame. I’ve provided feedback about this with ktvu and still it remains an issue. Also, so often the main page just freezes and selecting stories does no good. The act of quit swiping the app closed and then reopening only sometimes helps but otherwise it’s just S.O.L. Strange that such a great channel and news organization would have such a sub-par app.
Your apps
by tomlinda on 2019/02/28 13:52
My wife and I both are a big fan of channel 2 news. We have you every morning, but for the last couple months. The apps keep buffing for lags and most of out time this apps drain out phone batteries. We can start with 100% and after 15 minutes our batteries down to 20%. We tried to delete the apps and redownload again, but still happened again. I also use my work WiFi and it’s still slow. Our friends have the same experience
KTVU, I love you!
by Dumbunny on 2018/06/05 17:52
This is, hands down, the best new station, and news app available! I moved to the outskirts of the Bay Area where my tv station doesn’t get KTVU news. I depend on the live app for coverage! It’s wonderful! Thank you for the up to the minute texts, too, of current issues and breaking news. Excellence is KTVU!
Terrible service
by Draggu on 2019/08/27 15:38
This is the worst app I've ever used. Audio comes on for 2 to 3 seconds and then goes off for up to a minute. Impossible to understand what is going on. The only time it works correctly is at 4 o'clock in the morning. The station needs to fix this if they expect people to use it! Commercials repeat at least 3 times back to back. Half the time the app won’t load. This is frustrating since this is my only way of watching the news.
Decent app, but power drainer
by dkziggy on 2018/12/13 18:24
Been using this app for a while. Good source of news, but not enough variety so only worth opening once or twice at most per day. Not a biggie. The big gripe for me is that it is a big power drain. It's constantly at the top of my battery use culprits when using the live video, even though I only use it for 5 minutes a day in the morning.
“There’s only one...”
by Gilda likes it on 2019/07/16 05:53
I live in Seattle but regularly log into the KTVU website to find out what’s happening in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The KTVU website makes it easy to find all the best and most extensive TV coverage Northern California has to offer. As they used to say, “There’s only one 2.”
KTVU - weekend morning's
by David in SJC on 2019/05/26 06:40
I must admit, I do not watch the national Fox News. I do not agree with "fair and balanced news", I want it to be accurate. I started watching Fox News on the weekends, in the morning. I truly enjoy the personal touch they give the news. Accurate, but humanistic. Claudine and Frank are excellent.
KTVU
by Sky Thinker on 2018/11/06 02:16
Love the local reporting and the balance of what news should be. It’s time to stop calling it fake news. The first amendment does allow this freedom of expression; and we the people do have the right to discern and listen to make the appropriate choices regardless of the views. Keep up the good work.
Notifications don't open in the app
by Scorpion_Ricky on 2018/08/04 04:39
Hi, this is a very annoying issue that's been going for a long time. Every time I get a notification from the app, I click on the notification expecting to read the story in the app, but instead it opens the app and then it opens my browser with the story. If the app won't open the story, then why launch the app at all? UPDATE: It's been months since I wrote this review and the notifications still won't open in the app. Very annoying.
Can’t watch live TV
by Get_it_done777 on 2019/02/11 15:01
In last few days, I couldn’t watch the live TV anymore. How could this happen when we’re in Silicon Valley? Please fix it quickly. Thanks! Previous review: I have watched Channel 2 news for many years, and really like this App, too. It’s easy to navigate, plus it can continue playing on iPad when I use other Apps at the same time, so I won’t miss any news. Please make this continuous play feature available on iPhone, then you deserve ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thanks.
Local Doom and Gloom & Copious Clickbait
by Dre Boogs on 2019/01/14 18:08
The platform works just fine outside of the jumble of irritating ads strewn in between paragraphs and at article’s end. It seems very unfortunate that a news app, theoretically in place to share true and real information, has so much untrue click bait material surrounding its facts. Finally, be wary of granting notification permissions as their headlines are daily buzzkills. This past Christmas was ushered in the notifications about fatalities.
Why does it open Safari?
by betseylou94010 on 2017/05/02 13:54
I should be able to read that article I want in the news app. Half the time you got a news alert and go to open it and can't find it in the app nor can you find it online! Very annoying I wish they would return it to the state it used to be because it was once a wonderful app
Like KTVU
by Grandma D 2001 on 2018/07/02 16:06
I have been watching channel 2 since I was 5 years old. That is over 50 years ago. My grandparents started me watching it. Over the years, I have enjoyed the newscasts and the reporters dedication. Today there's no anchor or reporter I don't like. Keep up the good work.
KTVU News
by Yoli Hi! on 2018/11/13 22:13
I moved to Solano County three years ago, but family & friends still reside in Alameda County. Lived there 65 years & always want to keep up with their local news. Channel KTVU news doesn’t ignore anybody, or any city! Love all their reporting ! Thanks for doing such a through job!❤️
Love KTVU!
by DB-DB on 2018/02/03 16:46
I love I can keep up with my favorite local news station. Began watching news with some of these people when I was a kid and this app allows my access to them anywhere. The app is easy to navigate and responds well. Not a lot of unnecessary clutter all over. They keep the click bait at bey if you will.
Timely local news
by Mark in Oakland on 2018/09/06 15:50
I appreciate being able to check on local news with a glance at the phone. National stories too. Sometimes the writing is a little off, like it’s a rough draft. But that’s ok.
Worst app of all time
by Boat Lover guy on 2019/01/03 03:27
I have tried to contact the developers of this annoyance but they never respond. The video starts and stop constantly looping the same scene over and over, the video freezes, and it's usually about 50 to 60% of the time f'd up. The same 3 commercials always play just fine, but repeat sometimes 10 times in a row. More commercials than content. None of my other video or news apps have this problem. Screw these guys
