Update 8/23/23 The app STILL SUCKS! BUFFERRING, BUFFERING, BUFFERING! Have to sign back in at least once a week! I do NOT have this issue with any other network apps! Happens on 2 tvs and my phone. ----‐‐---------------------------------------- So disappointing. I use this app on my and 2 tv's. It used to load up fast. Now it takes forever IF it loads at all. Then it freezes. I've cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled the app which fixes it for a short time then the cycle starts again.

This app is difficult to log into and it's super slow and always buffering. It starts off with a series of flashing red and navy circles that seems to go on forever. Are they trying to cause people to have seizures or something what's with the flashing screens? You will encounter all sorts of different strange restrictions on what you can and can't see depending on how you've logged in even though all of this used to be free on their site. Then they bombard you with lengthy commercials.

I always have trouble signing in with my TV provider. The ads are a lot of repetition. I know some of you will like this but in 2023 it would be nice to select an ad. (Some ads have select experiences but same product). I think streaming I should say if I'm interested in a product so it can start to taylor ads. I'd be interested in the product or after a few seconds able to skip. Especially if it just is a repeat of an ad from the last ad sequence.
