Can't watch ANYTHING! Complete waste of time! The app loaded easily. I was able to create an account easily. I was able to browse shows and episodes. BUT, when I try to watch anything, I get a message saying that it can't play because it can't determine my zip code, even though I had to enter my zip code when I created an account! This is stupidly frustrating!!!

My app (and desktop version) keeps opening up in Spanish despite repeatedly changing it to English in settings. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling... setup is in English but as soon as I log in, it reverts back to Spanish! The playback is choppy. Sometimes the video and audio is off sync. And EVERY time I move the scroll bar, it plays 2-3 unskippable ads first. Some shows are decent, but not worth the headache trying to watch them.

Poor performance, in my opioion.... steps taken to clear up issue; Cleared cache, uninstalled app, reinstalled app, and set settings to allow access to location. Opened app and still get an error for zip code. VERY FRUSTRATING! I think they don't want us to watch for free anymore. Geesh! I love Chicago Med and Chicago PD. I just want to watch my shows. Oh well, I will find another show to watch on another network, I guess.
