Customer Reviews

  • Great news reporting !!!!

    by Fredd Francisco

    Awesome !!!!

  • Where's the weekend news?

    by Fannumber100

    This app is my go to one for Las Vegas local news...except on the weekends! There RARELY is any update on the news after Friday evening's live broadcast until late Sunday afternoon. What a shame that this has not been remedied yet!

  • What happened

    by Juliemouse

    I watch 8News Now on my iPod When I watch the news I would also get the commercials . Now just dead air. I visit Vegas often and look to the commercials for upcoming events . Please air the commercials

    Great app! Now that we no longer get the paper, I can still get the news in the morning without talking heads. Great alerts! You did a good job!

  • Close

    by Vegas Onion

    Very good App overall. The inclusion of the special series is a great bonus. Minus 1 star for occasional lack of editing and stories that lack pertinent info, that perhaps made sense on air- but are lacking as a written news article. Thanks!

  • Number one news app

  • Ch 8 app

    by LVRODGERS

    Best news app out there great job Ch 8 news now

  • Lacking business/Real Estate News Update

    by Alejandro Dela Vega

    Seems like an abundance of murders and traffic related news. The business news section needs a lot of improvement. A real estate news section that's updated weekly would be nice.

  • Should be called LATE news whenever

    by Sk8bro

    This app is Aweful. The news is always late. There is very little real local news and they have stories and breaking news showing from a week or more ago, just to fill up space. They really need to do a much better job of filling the app with REAL local news IF they want to be taken seriously.

  • Weekends off

    by Scott LV

    For a news station that says they are on it 24/7 they seem to take the weekends and holidays off, and leave top stories on for a week sometimes. Seems like instead of 8 News Now they should call it 8 News when we feel like it. There is a newscast everyday so there are people working on bringing the news to the public, except on this app.

  • USMarine8513

    by USMarine0913

  • From Michigan with family in Vegas

    by PriceParty

    I love the news updates and alerts! I live in Michigan with many family members living in Las Vegas. We all worry about each other and the alerts help us keep informed as to any situation happening in the city and surrounding areas! Thank you for the detailed reports!

  • Great app

    by Stingy one

    Love it

  • Average

    by tflan059

    I would like to access video clips but I do use the app. I don't get why I get alerts

  • Good app, need improvement

    by Guardian-T

    When there is a news flash, it should take direct to the news, not the home page. Else, why the news flash? Just read it myself when I want it. Show me the news. If news flash can show me the article related, then it does not belong to news flash.

  • Great App
