What's New in Version 3.25
- Performance Enhancements
Works, but quite annoying
The app crashes a lot, and often refuses to stream the game I'm watching stating that there is a "blackout" in my area. I've missed the first 8 minutes of the 3rd period of an NHL game because the app refused to open the stream.
Another huge annoyance is the frequency of commercials it plays when you close the app. Every time I close it to check a text or answer a call the app will play a commercial once I've loaded it back up again. This is super annoying. Just use the already existing commercial time that it's the regular broadcast! Also, after this opening commercial is a very popular time for the app to crash, resulting in you having to reopen it and watch. Another. Commercial. Also, iPhones and iPads can't multitask like PC's do, so people will be leaving the app regularly. This is poor design.
There are plenty of people leaving a review explaining that Time Warner Cable subscribers can't use this app. So I thought I'd add to the pile. TWC isn't the greatest cable company to begin with (the dispute between them and cbs only increased this opinion), but seriously? This app is unable to carry a major cable provider? I'm sure it's TWC's fault as well, probably mostly their fault. Again, seriously? Both companies have plenty of money, and should just finally provide the service.
UPDATE: After getting a new cable provider, I was able to finally watch the premier games, now, however, it won't even let log in toy provider. I can click on every other provider and it brings up a sign in page. The only one it doesn't is XFINITY. Just a really poorly made app. I wouldn't be surprised if the US government was in charge if it, with how poorly a setup it's been.
Great when it works...which is rarely
Since it decided to crap out on me at the beginning of ot in a hockey game and caused me to miss the whole thing I am changing my rating to 1 star, which is still too generous. New annoyances include the app randomly opening the App Store during an add which causes you to lose all progress toward watching what you want. Also, even though the sports content itself plays like garbage, the ads are always perfect. I have never hated an app more than this one. So, if you love watching ads this POS is for you.
Great quality when it works. Unfortunately it rarely does. Constant skipping, quality drops, freezing, feed loss, etc. This is on an iPhone connected via N wireless to a 50/25 fios connection. I experience zero problems with other, quality apps. This is just a crap app.
