Ratings and Reviews
Best app on the Apple TV. Anywhere. Period.
1080p live streaming of the English Premier League, Formula One, Cricket, Bundesliga, Tennis, All HBO originals, ABC originals, Live News, An *amazing* collection of movies and TV . . . This app is easily the best value for money out there!
Probably the one thing that was missing earlier that seems to be fixed now is continuity of watch state across devices where it wouldn’t sync if you’ve seen an episode on your phone and come back to the Apple TV at home.
One thing I’ve been super impressed with is the smooth frame rate on broadcasts that are high traffic too, did a bit of digging last year and found that Hotstar holds the world record for most consecutive streams of a single broadcast on the web . . For an Indian company to get here is frankly , very impressive!! I use other apps on the Apple TV to stream live stuff when I’m at home or traveling such as Sony LIV, Sling TV etc and nothing’s come even close to the quality of the broadcasts on here.
Great shows, terrible app
I’ve been too detached to write a review before, but I’m finally doing this in the desperate hope that I’ll have a better experience.
Current issues that are driving me nuts:
1) Can’t stay signed in to the app on phone/apple tv- Keep us logged in, gosh
2) a)with the new update, it asks you to sign in with phone, which I can’t
b) with the email option for the sign in, it doesn’t let me proceed after entering the email id and password. Let me explain this further
- The screen appears to freeze.
The keyboard conceals the continue button. Keyboard doesn’t recede after information is entered/tapping outside the fields or keyboard doesn’t trigger keyboard receding/pressing enter or return doesn’t help/switching off portrait lock and using the app in landscape doesn’t even turn the display.
Hopefully I didn’t miss anything.
I hate talking just about the negatives that are troubling me, so I would like to mention some things I enjoy about the app. As I wrote in the title, I really enjoy the range of media available for the consumers and the system of showing highlights and broadcasting sports and the news. Many of the shows I enjoy are exclusive to this app.
I hope you understand my frustration given how much I look forward to using the app, and how many hurdles I face for the simple matter of a moment’s entertainment.
Inefficient, tardy, a test dummy!
Why are certain premium movies fail to play showing a "failed authorisation" pop up when datym it's my 2nd or 3rd day after renewal!!!!
You guys just have a test dummy in place of a proper workin app.
If am logged into another device of mine the app doesn't give me an option to log out the of all active sessions!! Bummer how cheap are your engineers.
The subtitle selection doesn't allow me to choose the font size or overlays. Just the default brinjal letters that's so old school.
Don't just keep killing bugs in your update. Get something productive coming. Haven't received a reply to my "needs work" email so lemme put it here in public. Your player is really the worst I've ever used, needs colossal changes. The volume rockers not on the interface. When the quality is changed it just sticks to whatever quality it fancies. When thrown on full screen on an iPad or phone it turns sides .. Either left or right... Why doesn't it go full screen & take my tablets default orientation. Other b-grade apps manage to pull this off well.
And another annoying part, the thumbnails... You spoil every show with a thumbnail which more than summarises the entire event. Showing players with the trophys or other shenanigans. Duh! Fix it man. Fix this, otherwise primes doing a better job. Not even comparing with NETFLIX
GOOD LUCK with the next update ... Hope there's more to it than just murdering bugs.
