I bought a 43 inch 4k smart cast TV which required this app for more functionality than the given basic remote. The cast feature doesn't work most of the time unless if I re-register the device which is a pain. That problem might be due to the fact that I purchased the TV as refurbished unit from Groupon but for only 260$ which was the best deal around. I have my own Chromecast which I use as a replacement for the built-in casting feature that the TV has. It's not perfect but I can't complain too much for the price I payed. It's a solid 43 inch TV with 4k but no HDR.
I have no issues with any other app, and casting program to the TV. However, for some reason I'm having issues with Netflix. It so only play for 1 minute (or less) before disconnecting. I don't have any problems with Hulu, HBO Now, Youtube, or any other app. I tried to Uninstall the Netflix app, and install again. I'm still having the same issue.. I'm definitely not pleased, as this is my biggest go to for entertainment. :/
No matter what I try, the cast button that is suppose to show up on the playable app never appears. Everything else on it works fine. Now, when I first downloaded this a week ago it worked fine, but the past 3 days I havent been able to reconnect the cast. Do not download, until this problem is fixed. Pretty disappointing.
Absolute, utter garbage!! Don't bother downloading it.....if I could rate it 0 stars I would. Even though my tv states it supports it,the app can't even see the tv on my network, don't bother downloading. My vizio soundbar won't even connect to the app this all just takes up server space on the play store, fix it or remove it please....and despite some of the prior comments I'm a tier 3 Cisco network admin, so it's not a matter of being technically adept...the base review of 2.7 in the play store should be a dead give away that the overall average of this app, people have more trouble with it than people who don't, the star ratings rarely lie.. Would give 0 stars if play store would let me.
I don't understand why people are complaining about this. I have been using this application for over a year and have not had one issue. Either you all need to learn how to work technology or upgrade your phones to something more functional. This is a spectacular product and they shouldn't be slandered because people are incompetent.
Absolute garbage. It doesn't fully connect to the TV as it should so it doesn't cast. I can control volume etc, but NO CAST which is kinda the whole point. Please make this app worth my time. I spent four days trying to get it functional. I will be staying with my Apple TV as my streaming device.
