Review from Brian Downing
Would be five stars but loves to not let you watch, constant freezing of the screen and always buffering! I know it's free but damn! It even happens on my laptop!
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...
*** ** * 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. * ** ***
Here's a Commercial with your Commercial for your Commercials... And dear god in heaven don't you dare try to pause, rewind, fast forward or otherwise attempt to navigate an episode. You get about 2 mins of commercials stacked on your 2 to 4 mins of commercials and cannot get through them. I'm canceling my comcast package shortly because the on demand and what not is the same. Not only that, the quality is rubbish for the price. It's exactly the same as streaming netflix, Roku stick or buying off Amazon and streaming.
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.
Live TV broadcast channels only available in my home, no Chromecast, doesn't syncronise with pc, and we're still getting ripped on the bill. They're not doing me any favors. Quality has been great, only positive thing I can add.
Great idea, poor execution. I have had this app for approximately 3 weeks now, I have Watched about 15 shows. Or I should say try to watch. Video quality is great, sound is great. But i major major problem is That it skips alot about 20seconds ahead everytime from what i can guess. During the 1 hour show It will skip on me about 30 times. I drive a truck and I'm going a lot so I love the idea of this being able to watch my shows while I'm out on the road so I can get more time to do other things when I get home But its so bad im About to uninstall this.
