Good and Bad
A number of other reviewers had problems unsubscribing. I did not, I found this fairly straightforward and went ahead with it after the regular season finished up.
It is really convenient to be able to watch live matches on your device. I really like that the subscriptions are weekly rather than annual, and $3 a week is a reasonable deal.
I do have two pretty big problems with the app though:
1) it chews through an insane amount of data. I watched for about 5 minutes on a cellular signal on my phone and it used 180 megs of data. This is untenable and means that the cost of the subscription is effectively much higher than $3/week.
2) I can only watch half-screen on my iPad. This is a sub optimal experience and inexplicable since the app uses up so much data.
All in all I'm reasonably satisfied with the app and would subscribe to more sports and channels if offered this way. These 2 issues really need to be addressed though.
I had no trouble unsubscribing, done through the Apple ID and managing subscriptions for apps.
Screen on iPad seemed small could not get full size. However really convenient and managed not to miss any games.
Only use on wifi as does chew data fast.
For an official app, this is a poor effort. It's slow, web-view based (hence not native) and the UX is disappointing. Do yourself a favour and install League Live- a far superior NRL app.
