Pretty good overall, especially considering it's free. A few things I would like to see fixed: 1) Sometimes I have to watch 4 straight ads when starting an episode, then I skip to where I left off watching last time and have to watch 4 more ads. 2) It seems like it's not possible to save where you left off in a series. Instead you have to remember. 3) Could be easier to find the search box.

Such a terrible user experience. The ads are so annoying, it's more a less a streaming app for ads. The app navigation is designed to force you to watch the same irrelevant ads repeatedly. This is basically torture. Surely once is enough, the same ad should not be targeting me repeatedly without an option to opt out. This is wasting my time and the advertisers money.

Edit* 3yr &4mths after original poor review & low & behold nothing has changed! It is still absolute rubbish, whilst the amount of ads are awful I'd put up with them if the app actually worked. Buffering, low quality, crashing, unable pause, ff or rewind etc. After each group of ads lags even worse, only way could watch the show was to keep finger on screen 07/19*The shows I want to watch never work always 'try again' after watching the same ads over & over each time I refresh load of rubbish!
