What's New in Version 2.6.4
- Minor bug fixes
Shameful, inadequate and functionless app
One must wonder exactly who is in charge overseeing the buildout and running of this app. How could a reputable company continue to keep screwing up so, so, so horribly? This app, even after this new update, continues to barely run, and that's when its actually able to detect an Internet connection, as it apparently often times can't. When it does miraculously pick up the Internet connection that all my other apps have no issue finding, the content I'll begin watching is shortly after starting "currently unavailable". But still - the not being able to detect the Internet thing is an accomplishment all on its own.
This is the most pathetic and ridiculous excuse of a play at going digital -- Showtime should do itself a favor and just shut it down until they get it right, because this is and should be beyond embarrassing for them as a company -- this makes you look frugal and extremely outdated -- thee majority of other major networks have been able to launch successful apps that do one simple thing - work. This, though, is just pathetic, mainly because its been a couple of years since the app has launched and they have in that time made little to no progress at all. Bravo.
Showtime really needs to get with the times and start streaming in HD (like HBO, Max, Starz, and Encore) - while I do like their original series, the picture (and sound) quality is abysmal. Unfortunately this issue is not limited to their iOS app. Their website also streams in standard definition and stereo sound. I would rather (illegally) download any of their shows than suffer through the muddy, pixelated mess that is Showtime Anytime. Even on a 5.5" screen it is unwatchable. It is a slap in the face to all of your subscribers to continue streaming in such low quality. Just shut the service down if you cannot improve it from its current state. 0/5 stars - Worst video streaming app ever!
The only 2 reasons I gave this app more than 1 star are because I haven't had many issues with buffering or connectivity when using on my husband's Xbox One (which isn't always available to me) and because it has more content than Showtime On Demand, but not being able to hook my iPad up to my TV with an HDMI to watch all that extra content paired with the fact that the app isn't available on my Samsung Smart TV is too big of a deal. I'm most likely not keeping Showtime for the long term once I catch up on my show since I feel a little shortchanged because of these issues.
