Customer Reviews

Best App ever - I'm not kidding!

I downloaded this and looked what was on offer and... Sign up ASAP. Like others have said it doesn't have all the series for many shows but heck there's a lot! I found 15 comedy series to watch and I'm more into the documentaries myself.

My advise is download the app so what shows you'll get if you subscribe(very easy to do) and see if your happy with it.

Personally if I could give more than 5 stars I could cause this is twice as good as any other app.


The content is great. Such a shame you can't watch it on a big TV screen (from your iPad via Apple TV/Airplay) without having to contend with frozen screens, pausing, and the loading circle continually revolving. Streaming is a waste of time, but don't think downloading the programs will solve the problem. When you play the downloads back, using the mirroring option with AirPlay, they play sideways and half the screen is chopped off. I don't have these problems with any other Apps.

Great app

I find this app very good. Lots of programs to watch and a very good variety. Excellent value for Money at $10 per month for subscription but was even better when they had a reduced yearly subscription - please bring it back
