Edit: Now a 1 star rating. App is worse than ever. I'd rate 5 stars but everytime I go to watch live, I get anywhere from 2 to 7 ads and I end up missing the weather or something important I wanted to see. Plus, once it connects it jumps 30 to 60 seconds. I get you need ads but the way they're done really ruin the experience.

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.
