You can’t get the latest news and on-demand stories if the activation fails. But there’s nothing to panic about as we have got you covered.

  • Check Your Internet Connection: One of the most obvious reasons you can’t connect to your News4 WSMV account is your poor Internet connection. The best way to check it is by accessing another device and launching your favorite browser. Search for something in Google and see what it brings. If it doesn’t get any results or just shows connection issues, you must contact your service provider.
