MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Let’s face it. The news is not as predictable as a TV schedule – nor is your life. It would be too convenient for everything important – for everything you need to know – to happen at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., or 10 p.m. It would also be nice if life meant always having time to plop in front of the television whenever you like.

That’s why NBC15 News works to meet you where you are and on your time. Not able to watch a newscast on a regular television? That’s okay, because they are all streaming on our website, in our smartphone apps, and on many Smart TV devices. And, if you could not sit down to watch right when the show began or missed an important story, don’t fret. You can go back and watch our most recent newscasts right on your television.

Downloading our Smart TV apps for Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV not only offers livestreams of our newscasts as well as replays of recent ones, it also gives access to NBC15 News’ extended coverage and in-depth series. Or, catch up quickly on the day’s major stories by selecting the stories that are most important to you.
