Ratings and Reviews
Great App-- does what it says it will well .
Smooth problem free app with excellent interface. Does what it is intended to do well but some people are expecting more services from it. Its a free add on to Shaw services and I can understand if they are limited to the extent they cannot stream every channel or have every tv feature included.
My channels subscription don't appear
Would like to have access to my channels like on my receiver
For the last few weeks the shows keep stopping and scrolling. Sometimes it shuts down saying error and to try a different program. Reinstalled app and now getting error after logging into my Shaw account. Please fix!
