The app plays video well and the interface is reasonably easy to use. The Chromecast support is terrible. If you pause on your phone, the TV pauses but the show counter keeps going so you can't play from where you left off. Once an episode completes, you have to disconnect the app from your Chromecast and reconnect before you can play the next episode.
This is the worst app I've ever seen. It keeps cutting out, buffering every 10 mins, turning to a complete green screen and my personal favorite, locking up and shutting down my phone. Won't ever use this again and I'll be sure to warn everyone about it.
Seldom give bad reviews, but Chromecast support is a clunker. Makes one wonder if the developers even read the API. Forget about pausing a movie or show to grab something from the kitchen or to visit the loo, you'll have to shutdown and restart the whole app and find your place again. GUI is a bit underwhelming, and navigation is wanting. Fix the pause issues!
While I love Showtime, the app could use some improvement. When you pause the player during Casting, it keeps playing despite being paused on the screen. Also, the search function is hidden within a sub-menu. I'm not sure who though that was a good design element, making it harder to find content.
Dont like this app. Eventhough its free through your tv provider it doesnt work well with smart tv or fire tv. It has ONLY one way to activate a device, which is through the app, and so far i havent been able to activate any even using my computer. No matter how many codes i try it always says code not found. The only way i can watch anything is on my android phone, which is not my preference. The only reason i even downloaded it was bc it was the ONLY way to activate my tv and still it didnt let me. Dont want to be stuck having to look at a little screen. If it would work on the app through the tv id give it a better rating.
This Service is a failure... I don'tknow why I need to install this app on Android in order to complete a Device Activation. I also don't understand the point of being forced to create an account. HBO's offering and setup is so much simpler.
