Samsung galaxy s4 tablet. Watched one movie - ran flawlessly. Tried ep 9 of Fargo four times and can't go 5 secs without buffering (2 or 3 minutes were fine) then it hits. 5 mbps download speed, reinstalled ap- no improvement. Then I noticed it was buffering on the same word everytime I tried to watch ( cause it started over from commercial break each time) so I think it's something with the program file itself. Food for thought.
Well I got this app to watch the Simpsons and we'll I've been pleasantly surprised. The episode select was different than most streaming apps but only too a few seconds to get use to. I like the fact that for the Simpsons at least they have a bar graph that shows the most watched (popular) episodes per season. Even if some of my personal favorites aren't that highly rated
3 stars because it has all episodes of the Simpsons. Would be 1 without that. 90 percent of the time I get a playback error when trying to watch Simpsons episodes. And most of the time when the app fails and I try to watch it on my computer, that won't play either. I think FX needs to hire some tech guys.
App works as expected and has decent UI and video content (The Simpsons). It's a little buggy though. I had to sign into my provider twice. The Chromecast integration is buggy - one time it stated playing with audio only, another time it jumped to a random episode for no reason. The commercials stutter and load slowly. If it worked flawlessly, it would be 4-5 stars.
This app is no bueno. Have to re-open it multiple times to get it to work. The layout is not user friendly and there is no way to search for a tv show or movie. I have the worst time trying to cast anything on this app when other apps [hbo/netflix/hulu] work just fine. Also when I'm watching a movie and I pause it and come back 10 or 15 minutes later, the movies always start over and I have to find my place again and watch all the ads just to get to where I was. Speaking of ads... why do I have to watch ads when I pay for the FX channel with my xfinity subscription?
I upgraded my cable package to get FXX so I could stream The Simpsons. So. Many. Ads. No thank you. Uninstalled app, downgraded my cable package to get rid of it. I'm happy to pay for streaming services and pay a premium to go without ads. No option for that here, just tons of long, unskippable ad breaks.
