This application looks pretty polished - but one cannot view content unless you first register for an account. If this were not enough, "smart" televisions powered by Android TV are not supported! A very poor effort from a television network that often has surprisingly high-quality content.
Seeking doesn't work when you are near the start of a video and casting, it just forces you to keep watching the first and over and over again. Resume usually doesn't work. Fastforwarding to where you were up to (because resume doesn't work) triggers all of the ads between the beginning and the point you fast forwarded to. Doesn't track which episodes you have watched. Needs attention to getting this basic functionality working properly without making people want to throw their phone across the room.... The content is great but this is an app review.
I downloaded this principally to search for programs in the areas I'm interested in, but seemingly the app can't do this well either. The general search function is woeful. It would appear that it is not capable of processing generic search criteria, and rather requires specifics such as the name of the title you are after. Largely then, the app is unhelpful beyond listing what is popular to the masses
Constantly frustrating. There are some great shows and movies on offer but the app itself is pretty awful. If you stop watching a show part way through for any reason, attempting to navigate back to that point is practically impossible. You might expect the slider to work but any movement just takes you back to the beginning with an ad that cannot be skipped, no matter how many times you have viewed it. This could be a really great offering. If you improved the app I'd be willing to pay for ad free access.
The content is excellent and it is free, supported by 3 minutes of advertising at most. Unfortunately the true price is wrestling with the app to get it to play content seamlessly from start to finish without crashing or starting from the beginning after an ad. Scrubbing back to the point you were up to is also painful.
This app was great initially now near 2 weeks on. While watching sbs on demand via chromecast dongle at the 2nd interval/advertisement the movie/program loops back to the initial add and restarts it and continously loops. I'm having to stop what I'm watching, turn off chromecast and watch it from my tablet, it's disappointing. Please fix this glitch.
