The app is great, however, the video codec is really bad. It requires about 4Mbps. That is about twice the bandwidth required for streaming high quality HD video from YouTube, Netflix or Amazon Video, but the quality is not as good as it should. For mobile devices, bandwidth could be an issue. I would like to see a better codec bringing more quality with less bandwidth.

Excellent App & Service with a with a decent DVR! I only wish it had more of the major local broadcast networks, but it's not LocalBTV' s fault that they don't have them. It's the major broad cast network's fault. They'd never allow their stations (which are supposed to be free) to be viewed for free (except if you can get the stations free over the air with an antenna of course). A lot of people are out of range though.

This is a wonderful app and even though it does not have the major local channels, it has some channels that I enjoy watching. What's more is that it even includes DVR for free which I have been using to records some shows that I enjoy and be able to watch them at my convenience. I am in New York City and though I can easily pull in local channels, there are some channels that I have not been able to pull in and because of this app, I am able to watch and enjoy Azteca America New York which i am unable to get over the air and my provider does not carry it. I do not think that DVR will remain free once major local stations are carried on here or even if it will be free at all so I am very much enjoying this while I can. If you enjoy a wide variety of programming and are looking to possibly get channels that you cannot get for one reason or another, I highly recommend this app especially for the free DVR that is included.
