Inefficient, tardy, a test dummy!

Jences hejehdndkdbwheitifnd dn

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.

Mostly Good


Would be nice to have few features added like multi-tasking support so that we could read news as we watch some sports. As far as movie content goes it has an ok amount of regional films. Coming to sports the previous dedicated app starsports was very good. For e.g. while watching cricket there was a timeline at the bottom allowing us to select any particular moment in the match to watch be it wicket or a boundary or some other important occasions. Would be great if that is brought back. The Starsports app looked more futuristic than the current one.
