NewsON App

The NewsON app is a groundbreaking service that provides consumers access to live and on-demand local newscasts and local news clips nationwide. The free, ad-supported app features flexible navigation that encourages discovery, offering instant access to broadcast quality video. It also enables users to search by market via an interactive map and for curated content linking coverage of breaking news events from multiple stations. While watching, the viewer can use a timeline viewing tool to pinpoint the precise moments he or she wants to watch – from business and sports to weather and traffic. In addition, viewers can access and contribute to real-time tweets about local news, adding their perspective to the community of viewers and increasing the spread of local information. NewsON launched in partnership with ABC, Cox, Hearst, Media General and Raycom station groups to provide consumers with live and same day local news, no matter the device or location, through 112 participating news stations in 84 viewing markets across the country. Recently adding Sinclair Broadcasting Group as its seventh station, the app has grown to cover 80% of the United States with 120+ local news stations across 92 different markets.
