Review from A Google User
On-demand / offline viewing. Needs on-demand viewing of a missed program, and the ability to cache/download a program for viewing later when offline, or have poor or intermittent signal such as when travelling. Also needs pause, seek and slow-motion/step-through. Streaming quality is surprisingly good even over 3G. This app has plenty of room for improvement, and it needs to improve fast if people are paying. More stars when it does. Ps. And still no option for cycling push notifications in the new version (2013-01-11), but the others seem to have disappeared! :-( Pps. I will not renew until offline viewing is added!
I spoke too soon... This was a five star app, because it worked perfectly, but it's now just worth two, because it's broken... Live broadcasts cast to Chromecast with no problems, but the video catchup archive content will only play on my phone or tablet - when I try to cast, I get the white on red Eurosport logo on the TV, and 4 little dots moving in a wave pattern on my phone/tablet,and that's it... I've asked for support, but no tech response yet. The TV app worked well, but they pulled it, and now there's this issue.
Still needs more work. Using this app again after giving up for a year. Chromecast support has finally arrived but it is very patchy, seems to work okay for live TV but not always for the on demand stuff. Sometimes you get the notification sometimes not. It still frustrates me greatly that not all the races in season are available on demand. WTCC and Rally Raid for example.
OK. Chromecast is iffy For reasons I can't fathom, you took away the xbox version so I'm forced onto chromecast. Live TV works great but playback of other stuff is where the problems start. Quite often just a row of dancing dots and a black TV screen. Sometimes if you flick to another app and flick back again, it forgets what's playing on the chromecast. Netflix and Amazon support all platforms!
I am very upset as it suddenly stopped working saying " Service not available in this country". I am in Ireland and I paid the subscription fees. It worked for a while and then it stopped while I was watching AO. Can you help please ? Well then it started working again five minutes later. I have never changed countries.
Not the best picture quality for a 720p stream. It would also be handy to be able to rewind 3 hours like you can on a laptop. Good for the offer price I paid but I would have been disappointed if I had paid the regular price.
Hello? I am paying for this.. Video freezes every 5 seconds and jumps back to earlier points in video all the time. I've tried my phone, laptop, girlfriends macbook and three different browsers. DL speed on wifi is 35/s. A cable connection doesnt help either. This regularly combined with ads every 5 minutes in Biathlon makes me now take to your customer service for a full refund. I don't understand how you can ask €6.99 for a month of service that really doesn't deliver what it promises.
Minor bug fixes and technical enhancements.
