You can watch on the device live, chromecast doesnt work which is a key error of the app. Video playback is poor quality despite having a high speed Internet connection that can stream hd content with ease. Foxtel have no real desire to make the service great as it competes against their own offering.
I have subscribed to Watch AFL since 2012. It was good the first year or two, but now it has grown into the best online sports streaming service I have ever used. It's better than the NFL, Watch ESPN, SlingTV, Fox Soccer To Go, and all other services I've used to stream sports. And the best part? It's the best streaming service for my favorite sport! The price of $149 per year for every single match is an absolute bargain. The match interface is good, the quality of the stream is high, and the ability to integrate it into your personal calendar is a welcome addition. I like what Rightster did the past few years...here's to hoping Fox AU does it even better all year! [Update] Chromecasting now works perfectly. The dev responded quickly and got it fixed. [Update] Removing spoiler content is appreciated. It shows the dev is responsive to even the small details.
The inability to download is a critical miss. I enquired about it several times prior to the start of the season and was assured they were working on it. 2 months into the season it's pretty apparent they were just telling me what I wanted to hear. I have data limits and in many cases the times I can watch will impact my limit. In past seasons the download functionality had been critical for me. This should be part of the service for the premium price I pay.
Always cutting out, even with top notch wifi. Cuts in and out of the last 5 minutes of play. Purchased a week to trial, but miss most of the games. Waste of money
I just wish I could select video quality in the app. Also, video keeps freezing when I Chromecast it (despite other video apps working fine). Otherwise, this app is somewhat functional at a basic level.
Chromecast doesn't work, so have to connect it manually to my tv, which is extremely frustrating. Is also significantly overpriced. Hopefully next year they'll change season passes to around $100 and fix this Chromecast issue.
Enhanced functionality to avoid any spoiler video content.
