Since the launch of the channel, TWO TV News Now was criticized by the media and the viewers, with viewers saying that the channel had too many technical faults on the channel, while media say that it was not a good way to celebrate the launch of a new Engarian news channel.
During the 5 pm bulletin, a major sound fault occurred where a static sound was played when one of the presenters of the channel (Anthony Chapman) tried to read the headlines. The sound fault lasted from 17:05 pm to 17:15 pm when the sound fault was fixed. Many viewers criticized the channel, claiming that the static sound that played during the sound fault was "too loud".
1 day later, on March 31st, TWO TV News Now apologized for the several technical faults that occurred on the launch of the channel.
