Disappointed that if I do the live feed and stream it to Chromcast its constantly buffering and picture quality is bad. It is the app because if I watch it live from DirectvNOW and send it, just fine. The on-demand playback keeps buffering almost every 5 minutes and some shows won't even open.
This app's live stream cuts out, freezes, or just won't work on a regular basis. Not my internet, cable provider, or TV. Other app's live stream do work when this one doesn't. No... this incredibly unreliable app has incompetent people at the other end who cannot fix the problem.
When it works it's great, but the other 90% of the time it is constantly changing the video quality on its own without an option to make it stay at one quality. If the video won't load at the highest quality it will replay the last thirty seconds over and over again in lower and lower qualities until it loads then immediately tries to put back at the highest before repeating the process. Of course that's if you're trying to watch a show, if you're watching one of the only six ads they show then it'll be in super HD with no buffering issues ever. Now, I don't mind a watching a few short ads instead of long commercials but some variety in those ads would be nice.
As a paying cable customer, when I want to go back and watch an old episode or if I can't record a new one, this app has Way to many commercials. I'm pretty sure I won't ever download the DIY TV app or the HGTV TV app thanks to your spamming me with their ads.
Do you guys not know how to fix your app so the ads don't lock it up? This app SUCKS because it freezes up with the first ads.
Their is room for improvement. As you're watching and one show is done, it should just keep continuing to each show without having to click continue. That bothers me big time! Need to fix it!
