Where did the News12 NY app go?

I have used the News12 app in the past and now it is gone. What happened?

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Re: Where did the News12 NY app go?

I discovered this problem last month (on 6/22/2021).  The News12 app on my Roku was unresponsive, so I tried updating the app. Roku indicated it was already up to date, so I then deleted the app with plans to download it anew. That plan was unsuccessful, because the News12 app is no longer available to download either from the Roku website or from the News12 website!


News 12 New York Where To Watch, at, lists these platforms on which to watch News 12:

Under YouTube's News 12 channel (to which I have now subscribed), I found these and additional playlists:

  • Live now (which for me comprises "WATCH LIVE: News 12 New York") 
  • COVID-19: What you need to know
  • Feel Good Stories
  • Good Eats
  • Tri-State Trips
  • What's Happening in Your Neighborhood
  • Local Businesses
  • Sports
  • Education
  • Shorts
  • Uploads
  • Past Live Streams


  • YouTube has a News 12+ Channel
  • Haystack News has a News 12 Channel
