NewsON provides instant access to live or on-demand broadcasts from over 170 local stations in 113 U.S. markets. Access previous newscasts for up to 48 hours after they air, and share interesting stories with the integrated social media share function directly from the app. Search for a local station with the interactive map or watch the station closest to you on Kodi. Save favorite stations, and stay updated with breaking news alerts sent directly to mobile devices from the local source of the news. Stay connected anytime, anywhere without a cable subscription or login. *U.S Only.

Available from my beta repo and the Official Kodi repository.

Should this be in the official repo yet? Not seeing it.
If I have helped you or increased your knowledge, click the 'thank user' button to give thanks :) (People with less than 20 posts won't see the "Thank you" button.)

Thanks for your work on this.

But, is this USA only? Going to http://watchnewson.com/ gives me the following error:

"The Amazon CloudFront distribution is configured to block access from your country. "

Switching to a USA VPN gives me a working page, but I can't see a list of live channels anywhere. Searching for well known news stations doesnt seem to find anything.

Maybe I was misled by the "113 markets". I guess maybe it's only US local stations?

I'll look into it, looks like a encoding issue... I'll push a fix tonight.

Thanks for looking into this, Lunatixz. Smile.

NewsOn actually has a local station near where I live.

Looking forward to an update.

thanks so much for your hard work on this addon! I, too, am having issues getting it to open up for me. whenever I get it installed and click it tells me to check the log for more info. Thanks so much and can't wait to see it working!

I also had that a couple of times after my original install and previously tested working fine;

But if you continue to try to open the add-on, It will open after a few times of trying, and it also seems to stop the "check log for errors" message you are seeing.
