In addition to featuring an updated and streamlined look and feel, all 15 Telemundo-owned station websites, mobile and individual station apps allow users to quickly find and access their favorite content through an enhanced “Breaking News” bar for desktop and within each station mobile app. Users will be also be able to access new weather features, including:

The 15 Telemundo-owned stations’ apps will also launch a new app update in early 2016 to provide users with even more interactive mobile features to help them stay ahead of the news happening in their local communities.
