Viewers can go to either the Apple App Store or Google Play and download the free “SYNCBAK” App, it will go through an authentication process showing that you are in our area that will result in viewers being able to watch News 4’s local news shows and some other regularly scheduled programs on KRNV News 4.

Due to copyright clearance issues, not all program providers, including NBC, are willing to allow distribution in this fashion. This means that there will be some times when KRNV News 4 will have no content to offer but we will let you know when the next scheduled broadcast will be available.
