NewsON app brings you local TV... if you happen to live in the right place

This morning brought news of a new news app... 

NewsON is designed to give iOS users live and on-demand local newscasts and news clips. The free app launched today and is a joint venture of six of the largest TV station groups in the US -- ABC Owned Television Station Group, Cox Media Group, Hearst Television, Media General, Hubbard Broadcasting and Raycom Media. 

The idea of the app is that it can identify where you are and bring up your local TV station feed; both real-time and in archived clips. There's also an interactive map of the US showing all of the stations that are broadcasting, currently 118 in 90 markets that cover about 75% of the country. 

NewsON seems to be well-designed and implemented, and I was impressed with the quality of the streaming video. There's only one problem -- if you don't happen to live in a market that's covered by one of the TV station groups, the app defaults to the next nearest city that does have a station that works with the app. For example, I live in the Denver metropolitan area with a population of over 3 million people, but none of our local stations happen to be owned by one of the six groups. The result? I was getting local news for Albuquerque, New Mexico; Minneapolis-St. Paul, etc...

The app seems like a good idea; it would be nice if they would aggregate other video streams for station groups that are not owned by the six big dogs.
