Hopeless. Chromecast issues meant no sound - developers have along lead times to make software compatible with android updates, so there is no real excuse. Doesn't do what I wanted so watched a different channel.
Absolutely awful! I was watching a film on channel five and then my son woke up so once I came back down from tending to him it had finished and I missed the end. I downloaded this in order to watch the end... first I had to sit through the adverts AGAIN! and then when I tried to skip to the end it wouldn't let me and and error message came up. It them went on to play another four adverts so I thought ok maybe it wants me to rewatch the ones in the middle of the film so I waited and then it started at the beginning again! Total rubbish!!! In future I will just avoid watching anything on channel five as you can't catch up if you get taken away from the screen. Worst app ever.
Six ads followed immediately by another four then the player stops. Is this a joke app? Update: seems more stable now. Still a few too many ads, often more than on live TV.
Despite some bad reviews downloaded to my Sony tablet and cast to chrome. No problems. Not even adds! Worked flawlessly for me
downloaded to my khadas vim2, loads to a phone view with half the screen missing. I had it loaded previously an it worked ok
Very shoddy app. Very unreliable. Much of the content doesn't play. It fails to play anything on Chromecast. And half the time you get several minutes of adverts followed by more adverts, then it finishes and stops without even playing the TV show or movie.
We’ve been working to fix the bugs that you’ve reported to us and to improve your experience of the app. Our latest update offers some minor fixes and improved stability.
