Doesn't let me watch anything


When I log in it just shows me the plan info and won't let me watch anything. Pretty useless app.

Edit: after logging in about 50 times and giving up the app finally auto logged in when I went to sign in one last time hours later, now it let's me watch things. I guess I'll just have to go through this process every time it makes me log in again? Sure hope not. Like the review below says, when it works it works great, but when it doesn't I just resort to watching torrents cause those are up before the channel has its own show up. I'd suggest fixing your login process or at least take away the part that auto shows your plan in the middle of trying to log in. If I want to see my plan I'll go to my account settings and such. Since it does work I'll give a couple extra stars. Just a serious hassle and couldn't watch shows live

Channel Zero Not Working on SyFy


I am subscribed to Frontier Communications and am using the SyFy app on the Apple TV (4th gen) and on an iPad Pro. When I attempt to watch the TV series Channel Zero on either device, it always takes me to the first episode. I can see all of the six episodes of season 1 listed in the menu, but regardless of which episode I select, it always plays episode 1, "Candle Cove" even when the Info screen says I am playing another episode. Since this is happening on different devices with different OS’s, I think the problem is on the SyFy end. I am able to watch all other SyFy TV series without any issue.

I tried to submit this problem directly to SyFy through NBCUniversal’s TVE online service. I entered all of the information requested, hit submit and nothing happened, no response from the page at all. SyFy needs to get their digital act together.

Advertising Is overload


I love SYFY and have for 20 years. I have no issues with supporting syfy by watching an advertisement.

However, this app requires you to watch 25 mins of advertising during one single episode. You cannot turn it off or you’ll be forced to start completely over on the ads to be able to continue the show. Top that off with a very short list of ads and you’ll find yourself watching the same ad atleast 3 times during one episode. Ring my bell is the most annoying ad ever created. So, I’m assuming the person in charge of placement is trying to scare off anyone who uses the app.

Volume is another issue. So prepare yourself for a good ear f@&)ing if you’re not fast enough to turn your phone down when any ad starts. I swear that’s a federal law mandating volume leveling, but maybe net neutrality gives them free reign to burn ear drums.

All in all. I suggest only using this app in absolute dire need.

I absolutely understand the need for commercials. What I cannot understand is that this is not a free app. It requires a paid account with a major cable provider to be able to watch. So, Universal. I would like to know if you think you’re fooling people or if your greed is just so great that double dipping is just part of your mantra.
