Wow - I thought this app would be bad after reading the reviews and thought I might have problems playing a video. I shouldn't have worried! This app doesn't run at all for me! Just a black screen! Not even an ad. Nice when it also refuses to play anything off the website, directing me to this useless app.
Pathetic. There is no favorites, so you have to search for your shows every time. It is so incredibly slow because it is image-based and the CBC has not done anything about it in two years. Adding favorites would help that but nobody seems to be listening. Poor thinking and poor design, not very competent.
This app is great, when it works. Recently I've been trying to watch Marketplace but it keeps freezing near the end of the episode and will sometimes just restart the episode or stay frozen. It's really annoying that you can't choose where you want to start the episode as well, it just starts from the beginning.
Glitchy. Shows will restart from the beginning after an ad break every single time. So lots of manual scrubbing required. Closed captions out of sync. Ads are for CBC shows so why even have them to begin with. But you can get good CBC content for free. I use this with Chromecast.
App had been great until recently. Now when I go to Chromecast is mostly a black screen with a small partial image in the top left hand corner of the TV screen. The CBC Sports app is fine when I tested it so it must be the latest update to the CBC TV app.
WTH is going in with this app. Worked fine-ish a couple days ago...now is having trouble casting, when it does its a small screen in the top left hand corner, and when it plays half way through jumps back to the beginning of the show. Please please fix the problems.
