I quit watching; Newsmax never took into consideration Roku; no direction to install the app and or availability. They offered little to no news over the weekends, shitty Sunday lineup and a blank blue screen with funeral music. There are only so many reruns of previous shows one can watch; If they go under Eric won't be able to afford his hairspray and spray tan.

It was tough watching Newsmax before with their dropping in and out service. The ridiculously long blue screen dead time was also terribly annoying. Now that they've decided to charge for their service, I refuse to watch them. Instead, I now watch One America News and Real America Voice which are streaming for free.

NewsMax was on my tv at a minimum of 8 hrs a day 5 days a week with 10 to 12 hrs on weekends. Since the paywall started, I have watched them 0 hrs 7 days a week. None of the other news channels I have access to are behind a paywall…..

So, They've reached the level of quality programming necessitating a paywall. Lets see, the Newsmax blue screen of "someday commercials will go here" obnoxiously bleep bloops at you 40-50% of the day. For lack of content and commercials, every time I flipped to newsmax they were neither airing a commercial nor any content just bleep bloop blue screen of hopelessness. I would literally have sit and wait for content. Of course you would think that would make the constant chopping off mid thought of commentators a never happens kind of event, but nope... they would be mid profound and back to bleep bloop newsmax screen of hopelessness.... Then at some point they got rid of many of the shows that initially drew me in and replaced them with CNN discards. Paywall? Really? bahahaha

That blue screen is pathetic and maddening! I read that blue screen is in every tv market. Just can’t get advertisers. I watched them all the time and now I want them to go bankrupt! They also have too many technical issues and glitches. And blaming DIRECTV for the paywall has to be a lie because Real America’s Voice and The First are on cable and both stream for free. I honestly gave them a shot, but what they’ve done is ridiculous and they’re a joke.

Ratings down by 20% in prime time and I suppose that isn't even counting the streaming losses which must be enormous. I used to check in regularly with the Newsmax android app. Now that's gone and so is my viewing. So be it, I hope they fail soon so others can learn from it.

Down 20% is the new rating for Newsmax2. Rob Schmitt’s show was down 33% on November 1, then later in the week it was all deleted. I suspect Newsmax Plus will be added next week. It’s going to be brutal and I will no longer watch them. It’s funny that on Newsmax2, they are running promos with the anchors and they are basically begging people to subscribe and pay, just like when they were telling us to drop DIRECTV. It’s sad and hilarious at the same time.

I live in EU, I am a scholar of US politics.
In Europe you can not get any of the conservative, rightwing news channels. Most leftwing are available (CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg,..)
Until 11/1 Newsmax was the only available 'republican' oriented news channel available online.
EU is a complete leftwing bulwark.
The way EU intelligentia and news agencies talk about rightwing US is biased and pure desinformation.
It's like they read Media Matters for america as a bible.
So in general it is a bad thing they switched to a paywall-system and locked-out acces to US conservative viewpoints.

It’s neat that you keep up with US media outlets. I was sad to hear there are no conservative media outlets in Europe. And we wonder why the world is going to hell. Sorry if you happen to be a liberal. The good news is that even though we have very little media coverage we still compromise half of the population and are growing in numbers. Argentina’s recent election is also very encouraging. From what I understand there are also people who are becoming less liberal on mass illegal immigration, is that true? I know here in the states we are tired of the crazy amount of illegal immigrants, and cities that were Sanctuary cities, are now saying it is unsustainable. Many are protesting the funds being spent on illegal migrants instead of the citizens who pay their taxes.

I know no one is happy about having to pay for Newsmax Plus now, but I’m sure this was forced on them.
Anyway, I paid right away, registered, etc. and have been feverishly looking for the app to install it ever since! I can’t find it on my iPhone, my laptop or any of my LG TVs. A Google search produced something called “HBO Max”, but no Newsmax Plus!
I have called Newsmax and cannot get through on their phones, and have seen nothing that has come up on any searches I’ve done. So this is four days now without Newsmax! Anyone have any ideas as to where I can find an app so that I can install Newsmax Plus?
(While I never stopped watching Fox, I curtailed my viewing significantly after the 2020 election, then again after Tucker’s firing. Just an FYI, most of their hosts are as conservative as ever – – Harris Faulkner and the ladies of Outnumbered, The Five, Laura Ingraham, Watters, Gutfeld. Hannity still interrupts. And stay away from most of daytime.

I don’t think they were forced. I personally think they are lying, because The First is on DIRECTV and they stream for free, Real America’s Voice is on dish network and they stream for free. I think this is just a bait and switch to pay five dollars a month. They are so arrogant, they claim millions watch. It’s simply untrue. Each household has an average of four people, so is that where they get their millions of viewers? This database shows that they only have 385,000 people watching and it used to be 150,000 or FAR less. Where are their millions???

It was a tragic mistake in their Newsmax Plus paywall choice, they really didn't understand their viewers and the business model. Television died many years ago along with TV Guide. When Hamas terrorists wear GOPRO they become producers/directors and content moderators, and so goes embedded "journalists" ... Talk Radio continues to be the King of the Mountain of the media landscape. Streaming is a fill-in with personality "talking heads" ... there is very little difference between the visual aspect between smartphone (such a poor term since the death of the telephone), television demise with streaming and the blending of the technology, the only significant difference is the size of the screen. The next change in the latter will be the use of AI with an app (that will be a PAYWALL of sorts) wherein the app will be the same but different than the T.V. Guide of yesteryear. The app will be dynamic and will aggregate streams into a "channel" designed for the endpoint. Remember if its FREE you are the product either directly or indirectly via advertisement. With an AI app the advertisement revenue will ...

Paywall. Not watching anymore. Commercials are all old people’s commercials - stair lift, walk in tubs, walkers - yuck! Bye bye Newsmax!

Those “historic moments” Newsmax has been showing in lieu of commercials was a novel idea at first. But since we’ve seen all of them countless times at this point, they are now tiresome. Bring back the commercials! (I can’t believe I said that, but these historic moments are now just obnoxious!
