This app has never worked for me. It opens and immediately closes, after clicking on any video feed. Whenever the pop-up appears, instead of support, it defaults to a Google legal page and closes itself. Never tried any other offered format, because I listen to the C-SPAN radio app daily, but sometimes want to see who's speaking/watch a hearing, etc. I update when available, so is this an Android issue? Appreciate your help.

We're so sorry to hear you're having trouble with our new app, Nancy (but happy to hear you're still a C-SPAN Radio listener!). We'd like to help you solve the problem, but need more info. Are you able to click on the "More" tab and then "Technical Support?" Some tips there might help & if not there's an email at the bottom to send more details.

The content is great but live videos will regularly stop playing with a quick notification about the timing of the event having changed. Definitely a subpar UX. Inability to play when the screen locks is a negative, but that may be an Android issue and not app. Figuring out when videos will automatically undock based on what you do with switching apps can be tricky. ETA I think the dev misunderstood the timing issue. While watching a live event, the stream will actually stop with that error.

We're sorry you're having trouble, John. Picture in picture was launched on Android, so please make sure you have the most up to date version for that to work. In terms of notifications on the timing of events - unfortunately that's the nature of the news business at times, we do our best to update ASAP when the timing changes to avoid problems.

Fantastic app that is easy to use and has an incredibly easy to navigate layout. One big frustration with this app is that there is no way to stream video from my phone to my TV like with other video app out there. I don't want to have to be staring at my phone at all times when watching Washington journal, for example. It would allow me and other viewers to freedom to navigate and watch segments much easier.

Happy to hear you're enjoying the app & finding it easy to use. C-SPAN's journalism is possible b/c of the financial support through subscriber fees from the cable & satellite industry, so the only way currently to watch C-SPAN on TV is through a cable/satellite subscription. Their commitment allows us to extend the programming to you via the app.
