Customer Reviews

Love this app, love the shows

Great programming, beautiful app to use. The only thing missing for me is a show/play list, I often look through and see more than 1 thing I really want to watch but often don’t have time to watch them all straight away, I’d love to be able to mark them to watch later.

Good with one major failing.

My internet connection is not good enough to watch the shows while streaming, I have to download. The problem is that when the monthly subscription (the annual is apparently no longer available) expires instead of locking out the downloads until you re-subscribe it deletes them. The app deleted 16 hours of my downloads and left me with nothing to play. To top it off my internet subscription was at max Gb so I couldn't download anything more until it renewed


While the app is easy enough to use and there is quite a lot to watch, it's disappointing that the TV shows are not updated. Majority of the time there is only one episode for a LOT of series and sometimes only one season of TV shows I know have 3 or more seasons. Not sure ill renew my subscription since I'm not getting to really enjoy the full show. Oh, for some it's been a few months since I watched the first episode!
