Review from Brianna Keihn
Only works part of the time. It freezes a lot and has tons of glitches (like the loading. circle staying on the screen while they show is playing). When it works, it is good.

Buffer, buffer, buffer, that's all this app can do. I've had the app in the past and it worked pretty good, coming back to it now all it does is load over and over. I don't have problems streaming any other app. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared the cache, cleared the data and none of it helped. The tv app doesn't work with my Amazon Firestick either, same buffering issue. I'll have to wait a year or so for Netflix to air current season of AHS as I cerainly can't watch it on your app.
Subscribe to the channel and don't forget to set the DVR. Because this app only shows previews for about 4 shows. Unless you wanna see the Simpsons or season 3 of Archer. This app was good while it lasted, but I guess catching shows at the time that they air is part of making America great again.
Just the right amount of ads to merit this app. I have Hulu plus, netflix, Amazon prime, PlayStation vue, and some others and Hulu and playstaion vue have bad ui and too many ads along with bad controls. For an entire app about a certain channel I look for less ads because then what would be the point and decent ui and controls. This app has great ui and decent to great controls and enough ads to merit it's place in your storage and time
WOW, your rating keeps dropping! Can't you fix your own app? Reinstalled twice, still will not run. "Cannot connect with Fx servers", although all other apps connect and run fine. With so many recent Fx reviews rated 1-star, the Fx app is obviously broken. Why not own up to it, as responsible people would do? Update: I translate their response below to mean "we know our app doesn't work, but we don't know how to fix it. We hope that by responding, we will appear less apathetic than we are incompetent". Result: the app still doesn't work.
EDIT: I tried the techniques suggested to me by the reply to this comment and it might help for 20-30 min, but it's not a long term fix. I tested my internet speed which averaged 24 mbps (the help guide says it requires only 1 mbps). Don't waste your money on this service until they fix the app. ORIGINAL REVIEW: The commercials I can deal with, but the app buffers so much on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A that its barely worth it. Just tried to watch a movie and it buffered every 10-20 seconds. Its not even that great when using my roku. Never have these problems with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or HBOGo, so I know its not my device or connection.
THE WORST app ever made. I'm using a note 8. It worked perfectly for 2 weeks then the buffering started. Literally every 10 seconds the app buffers for a good 30 seconds. Please do not respond with the usual link to troubleshooting B.S. I have already done it all uninstalled/reinstalled twice, cleared cached data, I even cleared ALL data and started from scratch multiple times. This app is completely UNUSABLE, don't waste your time. I've uninstalled for good.
