GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Users of WBAY’s Roku app are seeing significant changes to the app. We’re now able to offer more videos -- but existing users might not see our tile after the upgrade.

WBAY’s app will update automatically on Rokus. If our app seems to have disappeared, that’s because Roku, by default, moved the tile to the end of your collection.

  • Scroll to the WBAY icon at the end of your Roku apps
  • Highlight the WBAY tile (but don’t click OK)
  • Click the * (star) on your remote
  • Choose “Move channel”
  • Arrange the WBAY tile where you want it

The new app makes it easier to see live newscasts, our breaking-news livestream, and First Alert Weather 24/7. We’re also able to offer literally hundreds more videos than before. So far we’ve expanded it to include:

  • Videos from national news stories as well as our local coverage
  • Every SMALL TOWNS with Jeff Alexander report since its debut in February 2022
  • An hour’s worth of Brad Spakowitz’s 3 BRILLIANT MINUTES
  • About two months of morning birthday wishes
  • And we’re adding videos from our archives under WBAY History
  • You’ll also find documentaries from our Gray sister stations, like the true story that inspired the movie “Cocaine Bear”

If you want to see it in action yourself and have a Roku TV or Roku plug-in device, go to the Roku Store and search for “WBAY.”

WBAY is still testing this new version of our Roku app, so you might notice some changes -- such as the features promoted below the livestreams frequently changing or different background and text colors.

After successful testing, the new app will be rolled out to Roku users of over 100 other Gray Media stations. The new features will then be added to WBAY’s FireTV and AppleTV apps.
