That is incorrect.

Go to Settings > Cellular.

Scroll down until you see "USE CELLULAR DATA FOR:" and then look at the list of apps. They will be in alphabetical order. Scroll down until you see "News" and make sure that switch is set to on. See screenshot immediately below.

I always get this stupid message when I'm on cellular. I never get it when I'm on wifi.

Okay, I can tell you I've never encountered that, but I do sympathize with you. I'm afraid I don't have a solution to offer at the moment.

Is it only that channel (engadget) that doesn't work when on cellular? Or is absollutely everything in News unavailable?

I found this article that may be of interest to you. Apparently it is a bug on iOS 9. To be honest, you may have to wait until iOS 9.1 comes out (towards the end of the month) to see if it gets fixed.

Hope. All channels give me that message when I am on cellular. Weird. On wifi I have no issues.
