Silent TV...

As of June 14th, 2018 I still cannot watch any of the channels on this app, picture is perfect but NO SOUND!!! Will the developer/s of this app please reply to my reviews. I would love to know when the sound problem will be fixed (if ever...). 😳

Installed this app on my iPhone 6s and was really looking forward to watching the Jeremy Thorpe programme on BBC4. Chose the channel and at first thought the volume on my phone was turned right down, it was on over half full volume! After a couple of minutes of watching what was to all intents and purposes silent TV, hoping the sound would start I closed the app in disappointed disgust. I have since opened it again and tried BBC4 and another channel, no sound on either. A so-called TV app with no sound is as much use as a chocolate teapot! Developers please sort out the sound problem ASAP. 👎😢

It's ok for what it is


It's an app that lets us watch live tv on a mobile device, not much I can say about it, it does exactly what it's meant for. I decided it was only worth 3 stars due to the fact a wifi connection is required for a couple of channels, not sure why it won't let me watch them using my mobile data like the other channels. If I'm watching tv on a mobile device it means I'm probably watching it on the go where I don't have access to a tv so if I'm out I'm gunna wanna use my mobile data to watch. Not really sure why it's called tvcatchup since all the channels are live broadcasts and you can't catch up on any programmes you may have missed, would make more sense calling it tvlive

Does the job, but why not add....?


Have used both this and the now defunct NowTV and although this has a limited channel list, it’s fine for what I need.

But why not learn from NowTV? I miss the volume slider at the bottom (much easier than fiddling for the physical volume button) and access to the channel list should just be a click away at all times. Ease of use is what made NowTV superior, so why not add a better UX developers?

Update these two areas and you get an extra star. More channels and you may get another.
