What's New in Version 4.8.2
Doesn’t stream as cleanly as Netflix but ok
I like the content and the user interface is clean and simple to use, however, most importantly for me, the streaming quality is poorer than other streaming services that I use. I use Netflix and google to stream and have a solid 56mb/s bandwidth but I struggle to stream a whole movie or episode without some stuttering or minor buffering issue. It seems to be mainly at the beginning of a stream as if it’s struggling to buffer and play the initial picture data. Shame as I like it otherwise.
Overall very good but one minor problem...
Much better interface than a few years ago but one flaw that prevents it getting a 5*. Sometimes the picture becomes fuzzy like it is buffering. When i close the app and open it again this stops. Not sure why it happens but it ruins the viewing experience. Other than that it’s a great app!
Choice of movies not great but a good package overall
While the choice of TV box sets is great, with some really good original content, the selection of movies is pretty poor.
Yes, there are a few exceptions but I find myself scrolling through page after page without finding any half-decent films to watch. If I’d have subscribed to this for movies I would have cancelled by now.
TV stuff is good though and some really worthwhile box sets.
