It used to be decent, with ads not getting in the way with broadcasts. Now it shoves multiple ads in the middle of live broadcasts instead of keying on station breaks. Even on-demand broadcasts are being interrupted and not picking up where they were interrupted. I don't mind ads, but when they run over top of content rather than pausing and restarting content where they left off, it has become useless to me. I'll give developers time to respond before removing the app from my devices.

As a few others have said, if you like the *idea* of this app, but hate the current version, search & find version 1.6.1 and load that (and disable updates on Google Play). You will have settings to choose your resolution, chromecast support and the ability to pause, FF, REW or start from the beginning on live broadcasts. I don't understand how they could strip SO much functionality from the old version and call it an "upgrade". Current version is pretty much complete garbage.

Best app I can barely use. The media that comes out of it is wonderful! However, there is no settings button. Casting it to a TV from my phone is nowhere approaching user-friendly and terribly difficult at best. When they redesigned the app they took away a lot of the functionality. Usually when apps are upgraded they're actually upgraded not downgraded.
