The way they allow 6 “technical difficulties” 4 times in almost every show is preposterous. They can never get anything going without a major technical glitch of some sort. It’s been going on for years. One of the shows at 2 PM had nothing but audio problems, no audio, for 25 minutes until someone in the control room noticed, then all you could hear from time to time where the people saying, “test, can you hear me?“ The production quality is absolutely horrendous.

In fairness all cable news viewership is down more people are turning to the net for news. Fox was down 19% last year I guess that's why Trump is once again their friend. As for Newsmax they gave me an option when Fox hid information regarding Hunter's laptop blaming doing so would affect election results,it did alright in bidens favor. Now we all pay.

I completely understand that, but 200,000 people in primetime is pathetic. I’m a Newsmax2 viewer now, ever since regular Newsmax forced that paywall. I just can’t stand their low-rent production quality and constant technical glitches that go on all day and I would never pay for that. Sooner or later, they’ll have to merge with another network to survive…or secure funding by another Saudi “investor.”

It's the APP , it's the APP, it's the APP......Newsmax has been given more than enough time to get this app issue solved. Nothing ...If Newsmax admitted issues and let us know they are aware and working hard to get issues resolved , it would save face. Acting as though all good and having your anchors tell us how well the new platform is going and how many new viewers signed up , is a turn off. The app will be what takes Newsmax out ...You blew it with this release. You do not repair or replace the app , just let your paying new viewers discover that you are unwatchable because of server issues and you act as if it's all good will end you Newsmax....Here are 4 adults that you lost because of unwatchable paid for streaming debacle....Adios be honest , and upfront ....Stop acting like your Democrats and lying to us.....

Their glitches on Newsmax2 are constant. They can be right in the middle of a rally and it shut off for one of those historical moment videos. It’s the most irritating Netwerk I have ever encountered. I don’t know what their problem is, but I certainly wouldn’t pay for their subpar production. I used to watch them before they lied about their app and how DIRECTV forced them to get rid of free streaming. The funny thing is, Real America’s Voice and NewsNation are on DIRECTV or DISH, so why is it just Newsmax that they claim DIRECTV forced them into a pay app? I think they completely lied about it because the can’t get advertising revenue. I’ve never seen more than a couple ads an hour. They just run that blue screen and irritating music. Where are the commercials should be. They’ll never ever beat Fox, They have 3,000,000 viewers on average compared to Newsmax’s 140,000. I honestly don’t think they’ll be around in a couple years. They already lost some talent in the past couple years.

Looks like they are shaking up the Newsmax2 daytime lineup. More free news instead of those idiotic talk radio simulcasts. The app and subscriptions are not working. I can see more news coming to the free streaming soon. Newsmax must be hurting big time.

How can a network have 180,000 viewers for the week and have 350,000 for Rob Schmitt’s program? Doesn’t make sense.

Christopher

Feb 8, 2024 10:48 EST

I believe the 180,000 is the average viewership of all shows combined.

Newsmax is on a steady decline. When you go on air and run promos that say “30 million people watch us” then the ratings come out and it shows it’s only 10,000 people from ages 25-54 watch, are you really going to continue with your self-promoting lies? Hey, NEWSMAX AND NEWS NATION…NO ONE WATCHES YOU!

There are many shows & hosts I love on Newsmax, however, there are times they need to be called out & this is one. I saw the same. The false narrative is a bad look. Wonder what & where they came up with such a "creative" formula. If we're wrong, then give us the facts.

Rob Astorino should have his daily show. He is articulate; natural; not boring.

Well, I might as well throw in my 2 cents worth. As many I'm disgruntled with the fact that Newsmax litterly overnight threw up a pay wall. I cut cable years ago and find Rocku to provide all I need. When the debacle with Dish and the rush of viewers (for free) like any other news network except Fox it was a shock that they went back on thier word and are charging.

I know it's only $6 bucks but as a person like many that are on fixed income and struggling more and more it's a lot to ask. I miss Rob and John Tabbaco programs but not enough to pay for something that is free programing elsewhere.

I coincidently canceled my magizine subscription as well as it came due in November.

I found this site as I was curious if the pay wall hurt Newsmax. I felt I probably was not the only one, so the comments above bore that out.

I've been with them since thier beginnings of little more then live streams of radio guys. I watched them grow and sad to see them go. I wish them success but likely they have peaked unless they get smarter and hire a good advertising manager and team so they don't have to rely on the scrapes the cable boys toss to them.

Buy the way don't exspect to ever get a response from Newsmax. I have over the years never gotten a response concerning programing or the matter. Not even a canned email back.

Search for Daddy live hd. You can still watch it on there.

Newsmax is collapsing before our eyes. Rob, Chris and Carl are great, but the rest of the programming is mediocre at best, they have glitches like you wouldn’t believe, their weekend shows are horrible and their morning show repeats content after 45 minutes. They have lost a few hundred thousand viewers by no longer streaming for free, which they lied about because 2 other news networks stream for free and are both on DIRECTV, and forced the remaining viewers onto an app that doesn’t work. What more could possibly go wrong?

NewsNation is now beating Newsmax! Only two months ago, I heard an anchor on Newsmax say that no one watches NewsNation and people can’t find it. Lol.

Jan 6, 2024 11:14 EST

Actually Newsnation has only half the audience Newsmax has...Newsmax avgs 210,000 while Newsnation avgs 104,000 weekly. Their highest rated show is Chris Cuomo and he only brings 80,000 to 160,000 avg each night. Newsnation has failed to grab any chunk of viewers from Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN. Look at the numbers above and then look at Newsnation's paltry viewership. Newsnation SALIVATES at the numbers Newsmax has...but yes Newsmax's programming model needs an overhaul. However... Newnation...honestly...needs to revert back to WGN America IMO!

Used to watch Newsmax everyday ...until pay per view ... No way Jose . They used to fume when Direct TV did not broadcast for a few weeks. They ask for our support in the matter and now they expect us to pay if you want to watch Newsmax...no way ( Not even $1 dollar per month ) We have to make a stand and avoid Newsmax at any cost . Not Fair/ Good Luck with that.

Robert

Dec 16, 2023 09:45 EST

I used to watch them as well and I remember the pathetic begging they did during the DIRECTV negotiations. Every 15 minutes, they’d have their anchors beg for people to cancel DIRECTV and stream free. Now, I’m cheering for Newsmax’s demise.

They're fudging the numbers here. One week it's up 40%, the next week it's down 20%, next week it's up 30% along with numbers higher than before the paywall. We know they've lost hundreds of thousands of viewers. Then I'll see some shows have an increase while the whole network has a major decrease. These numbers make zero sense. I enjoyed Rob Schmitt and Carl Higbie and wish all the hosts well, but I look forward to reading about Newsmax's failure. It's hard to find decent conservative news because mainstream wants to silence it. But I'm not paying for it. It's like they don't even care or respond to customers, app lost a star rating as well. I know many of the hosts will be ending their contracts when they're up. Unfortunately, I don't think Rob will join RAV or OAN because of the lower viewership and production value...he's a real journalist and I saw that the night Russia first invaded/cut the power live on air as he anchored his 10pm scripted show until a few hours later unscripted, as bombs fell over Ukraine whilst talking to the Australian chick at a hotel in Ukraine. Both were amazing journalists that night. Sighs, bye Newsmax.

Robert

Dec 15, 2023 09:05 EST

Yeah, I completely agree. And RAV has really poor production value. I can’t stomach it. I really need to find something better and free.
