Local 4’s new TV streaming app gives you more local news – when you want it.
Introducing Local 4+, a completely free and easy way to stream Local 4 news to your TV. Notice I said TV, not laptop or phone. More on that below.
Since we announced the launch of our 10 p.m. streaming newscast and our 7 a.m. streaming newscast, which begins April 4, we’ve had a lot of questions about how it all works. So we thought we’d break it all down.
What is Local 4+?
This is our new TV streaming app that you can download on most smart TVs or Smart TV devices.
It works the same as watching Netflix or Hulu on your TV, if you already do. Local 4+ would be just another app you download to your TV.
How to get Local 4+?
Local 4+ is available on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon and most other Smart TVs and TVs. Just search “Local 4” or “WDIV” to download it.
You would look for it in the app store of your device or TV, just like you would if you downloaded any other app.
Why can’t I download Local 4+ on my phone or tablet?
Because Local 4+ is not a mobile application, it is only for your TV. To stream Local 4 news to your phone or tablet, download the ClickOnDetroit News app, or watch live on ClickOnDetroit.
I watch your news on ClickOnDetroit or the news mobile app. Does this change anything?
Nope. Everything that airs on Local 4+ is still available on our mobile app and on Click on Detroit here. Local 4+ is just another way to watch on your TV, but nothing strays from our other platforms.
What else do I get on Local 4+?
Broadcast the news live: Whenever we broadcast local news, we broadcast on Local 4+ – it’s just another way to watch your favorite news show.
Exclusive news broadcasts: At 10 p.m. every night, we have a Local 4+ newscast, only available on the app, catching up with you on the best stories of the day. Local 4 News at 10 p.m. is on Local 4+ every night. And from April 4, Local 4 News at 7 a.m. will only be on Local 4+
Weather updates: Local 4+ features the latest video forecasts and weather details from Local4Casters, including 24-hour live streaming radar.
Video on demand: You can find all the stories you may have missed or the ones you just want to see again. Our video library features all of our latest stories, from breaking news to Help Me Hank and Defenders exclusives, to special primetime programs from Local 4. It’s all there for you to watch whenever you want!
Live coverage: Whenever we have a live press conference, live event of any kind, or maybe we’re live at the location of a story, we’ll be live on Local 4+! You can also find national live streams like speeches from Washington DC, updates on big stories and more. If we have a live stream it’s on Local 4+
Live cameras: Local 4+ offers all of our 24-hour live cams, including those in Downtown Detroit, Detroit Metro Airport, Mount Clemens, and Ann Arbor, as well as our exclusive Detroit Zoo Otter Cam , which is adorable. You can track live weather radar events in the app.
Does the download cost me anything?
It is completely free to download and use, 24/7.
Will the new 7 a.m. newscast be aired on TV?
No, the 7 a.m. newscast, like our 10 p.m. newscast, will be broadcast online only. You can watch it on ClickOnDetroit or the ClickOnDetroit News app, if you want to watch on a mobile device or laptop.
But if you want to enjoy 7 a.m. on your TV, you’ll need to download the Local 4+ app. If you are still reading this, you are totally an expert!
