2022-11-11 update: a recent app update seems to have resolved the lack of synchronization between the app and desktop access for "my list". Well done! Reasonably good, but annoying in that the items in 'my list' aren't synchronized with other devices. For example, removing an item from another device (Roku) is NOT reflected in this app, but IS on the website version. Otherwise, a decent app.

The newer version of the app running on my Android 8 TV box, now struggles to stream the shows. After the advertisement plays, it gets a video error. To get around this, I will click on play/resume as many as 9 times until there are no more ads, then the video will play. Tried signing out of the app, rebooting the TV box but the issue persists. Is there anything I can do to fix this issue?

I wish all shows were available on Passport; Some shows, I've noticed some have an expiration date. Which sucks! This evening the app wasn't responding; Was there a server crash? Moreover, I have an Android phone I wish there was a way I could delete shows from my history; My phone doesn't allow that for some reason. I hope that these problems get fixed soon! I am a sustainer here in OPB country and I want to get my money's worth!
