Very few new releases- lots of spanish titles and older movies I've never heard of before, and I'm a big movie buff. You can create a watchlist, but there's no option to watch trailers, no reviews or even a star rating for titles. Starz is cheaper monthly, ($8.99) has a better selection, star ratings for titles and you can watch trailers of movies. You do get free one month trial, so check it out, but I cancelled my subscription within about 3 hours of installing the app and starting my trial.
Constant playback issues. When trying to watch multiple episodes in a row, you have to completely back out of the app, reconnect to Chromecast, find your show, find the episode you need, then play. Every other streaming app has a "play next episode" feature and stays signed in and connected while you're watching. If it weren't for shows like game of thrones and westworld, I would delete this app and not recommend it anyone.
Overall I like this app and would have given it many more stars, but tonight the app has decided it no longer wants to work for me. First it wouldn't load on my phone, so I tried to open it on my husband's phone and was prompted to sign in. Okay, no problem (I thought), but when I tried to sign in I was told my subscription has ended and to go to manage subscription in the app. Again, I do as prompted, however it says that my app is set to automatically renew on February 12th, so please explain to me what is going on. If I am going to spend $14.99/month on an app I would like it to always work.
I've used this app for months with no problems at all. I had to update it tonight (or it wouldn't let me open the app) and now I'm getting a 'can't play this video right now' message every 10 minutes. I have to close the app and reopen to watch 10 more minutes. WTH! For $16 freaking dollars, this shouldn't happen. (Internet is fine, Netflix, Hulu and others working, no problem)
With the new update the ability to clear my continue watching is gone. Disappointing. And it buffers much more frequently than before. After updating, I have to log in again. A slight annoyance. I DO like having some of my favorite shows and other movies available to watch, so all in all its a solid "OK".
Out of all the streaming services, this is the most laggy. Videos take so long to load compared to others. If you make the mistake of forwarding a video for 10 seconds, be ready to wait for 30-50 seconds for the video to playback again. Constant playback errors. Being the relatively pricier on demand service, you would think this app is top notch compared to Netflix, Hulu etc.
