Review of KRGV Channel 5 News Rio Grande Valley


  • Good weather app
  • Video On Demand
  • No live stream

KRGV 5 gets a decent rating of 8.5 out of 10 based on a number of factors. The biggest knock against KRGV Channel 5 News is that it offers no live stream of its news broadcasts as they air. If you want to keep up with its latest news reports, then you’re stuck with its video section. [Don’t get us wrong, the video section isn’t bad, but it would be better if Channel 5 had a live stream for the KRGV online viewrers.] Even without a live stream, KRGV News does still make it convenient to get breaking news from the KRGV weather team along with KRGV traffic updates. If you simply want to go directly to the KRGV weather section of the site, click our ‘Extras’ button above. Alternatively, if you want the KRGV weather app, you can download Channel 5’s free weather app here.  Finally, KRGV News has a great video collection so viewers can watch the day’s news on demand, earning it further points.
