I have this app on my firestick and this is the only app that I can watch my favorite local news (fox 17 in nashville, tn) for free. It has been a huge let down. The news will stream for about 10 seconds and then it freezes and comes back on a minute or so later. After doing that for about 5 times it quits altogether and goes back to the app home screen. I got rid of my cable because I no longer need tons of channels. The news anchors promote this app. I'm sure they have no idea how it works!

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.
