This is a good streaming app with a few major irritations, the main one being downloads. I'm often on a weak connection, which is why I prefer to download, but if your connection drops the download fails, so you can end up downloading one episode multiple times before completion. This costs a lot of data. Also you should be able to multi-delete. Currently it's three clicks to delete every episode. And the display doesn't rotate when turning the phone around.

The app itself is decent. Pretty much no ads. The problem comes with troubleshooting. I've been having a problem where ever time I'm trying to watch a video, the screen comes up saying "error, please exit the video and restart the application" or something to that effect. There's no support for issues like that anywhere. None. Get it sorted, have somewhere to get support or fix the issues, and I'd rate this a 5.

Nice app. But here's two suggestions to improve it. 1. Implement a channel category that lists current and up-coming live streams that are not being, or going to be broadcast to the main channels. These are often sporting or music events. 2. Create a delete facility for the 'Continue Watching' list which grows and grows, so users can remove programs from the list that they have no intention of watching further.
