What a waste of time

Doesn’t load what you want to watch and every time I try there’s an error message please wait short time. Tried to log in and said incorrect password... reset... still incorrect. After several attempts it was the correct one (my password didn’t change, I kept ‘resetting’ to the one I use all the time). This could be a really good app but needs to be worked on!

Hi lola, we’re sorry that you’re having issues with the app. We are experiencing a few teething problems. Can you try the following please: go to Menu>Help>Clear Data and restart the app.

One fix broke everything!

I was longing for chromecast with this app (when it worked- good times) and by chance I noticed it now has the feature.... shame nothing else works now. Programmes crash or don’t load at all and I’m asked to “try again later”- It’s got a number of faults looking at the reviews, and the stock response of them “working on it” is a little boring now. I’d give this one a miss for a bit folks, there are a lot of bugs to work out.

Developer Response ,

Hi Hlgbo. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the Chromecast addition. However, yesterday evening our servers went down. If you’re still experiencing problems today, please contact our helpdesk here:

Its good..

Only really aggravating issue I have is when you accidentally touch the screen when an advert is playing you get sent to the adverts site WITH NO OPTION to go back to what you are watching, well other than force closing the app and restarting...Tends to turn me completely anti-company/product you are paid to advertise.
