Review from Arthur Hardt
Every time they update...it always makes the app worse. Now when I watch tv HALF the screen is missing on the sides and their faces are pushed together. Before it was either a small box but viewable or a full screen (how it should be since its on a SMALL CELL PHONE OR TABLET). Now their faces are stretched like they have l0ng faces. I guess it doesnt matter cuz I am really considering cancelling tv. I AM REALLY TIRED OF ALL THE LIBERAL PROPAGANDA AGENDA IN TV SHOWS AND MOVIES. ITS MOSTLY ALL LIBERAL PRO GAY...PRO DRUGS...ANTI TRUMP... ANTI CHRISTIAN GARBAGE. WISH HOLLYWOOD WOULD STAY OUT OF POLITICS. I DONT WATCH TV MUCH ANYMORE, SO WHY KEEP PAYING FOR IT. I WILL MOST LIKELY BE CANCELLING TV VERY SOON. NOT WORTH THE GARBAGE THATS ON IT. AND I WOULD BE SAVING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS EACH MONTH CONSIDERING MY BILL IS CLOSE TO $200 A MONTH. WHY PAY $200 A MONTH FOR LIBERAL GARBAGE? I DONT WATCH NFL ANYMORE EITHER.
Removing features on the app like setting and removing recordings to dvr is definitely a downgrade. Same with the chromecast/screen share limitation. Suck the users dry by making them pay another 10 bucks for another cable box. Worked decently before but now I download dvrd shows and it will not playback. It's on my device...no idea why a downloaded recording on my device is buffering or somehow can't play. I shouldn't need to be connected to a network to play downloaded material. Now with the update, even with a network connection..downloaded shows dont play...pointless app now
Would be a great app, IF you would quit trying to "fix" it. Every time I get it working correctly, you release an update that breaks it again. Now it will only allow me to down load about 8 minutes of a show that is eligible for download. Gave it 4 stars because when it works, it's a good app. Unfortunately it doesn't always work...
Used to be great. Now if I switch apps, I can't go back and continue watching my selection. The pop-up for "Resume/Start Over" comes up for a split second, then the whole app minimizes itself. Renders the whole thing useless.
This app used to be great but they took the ability to SET recording remotely which almost makes it completely useless. Why would you restrict people from just setting up recordings remotely for shows you might miss? Just more of fixing what wasn't broken
S8+ viewing needs work. Other TV apps allow you to fill the entire screen by cutting off the bottom and top to fill the sides. I'd like the ability to cast to Chromecast, Roku, and maybe even TV apps rather then just mirror my phone.
*** ** * I have significantly raised my rating for this app since last year. However, I still have one SIGNIFICANT outstanding problem with the app. When watching "LIVE" TV, I find that on my phone, (& all of my family member's), I frequently experience a 3 dot buffering (•••) & often a gap or loss of the show. This is NOT an in-home network issue (though it could be somewhere on the Xfinity network) as my network connectivity is in tact & sustained without delay or jitter. So it must be an issue with the data/video server. I look forward to a SPEEDY (too late for TIMELY) resolution to this issue. * ** ***
