Too bad I cannot give it zero stars because this is what it deserves. I am renting a movie, try to play it and I get a cryptic error: There has been a video playback error. If the problem persists, visit help.fandangonow.com. Except that this site is not reachable. Luckily for me I received this rental for free from T-Mobile so I am disappointed but not angry. Time to delete the app from my Nvidia Shield Google TV and never again try it.
I was happy that there was potentially now a way to watch my UV library with the lack of VUDU on Android TV. Once connected though, only 1 movie out of my 200 showed up. On top of that, movies I have rented constantly drop in quality or pause completely. This is on both my Nexus Player and Nvidia Shield. I can immediately move to my Roku and it plays fine. I am happy to see them launch support for Android TV, but as of now, this is no good, forcing me to keep around my Roku for this. Once these performance issues are solved, I will gladly update my review.
Movies pause a lot and stutters really bad on my Sony Android TV. But if I use the phone app and cast to the TV, there is less stutter.
I installed this on my Mi Box and the UI is horribly slow. Once I can pick a movie to play, video playback is super choppy. I'm not even sure it was in HD. There are other ways I can watch my Ultraviolet collection, and I'll be using one of those ways 100% of the time.
The FandangoNow website lists my entire Ultraviolet library properly. This app on Android TV shows only 2 of my 63 UV titles. On multiple Android TV devices I see the same two titles, nothing more. Their support response was to wait several days to contact me back and ask if this was still an issue. Yes, it is. 1 star is required for a rating, but in fact is far too generous.
Lots of awesome content and has to be the best android tv app for watching your UV content. Works great on my crappy network as well.
