CRITICAL DEFECT: Video Won’t Resume; Plays Infinite Ads


I just tried this app on a single video and it literally cannot be watched. The video stopped at a certain point and threw me out to the ads and then got stuck playing ads, one after the other. I lost count, but it went on so long as I tried to restart the video that I was seeing the same ads multiple times. The video would not resume, no matter if I let the ads run in full or closed them using the big X in the upper left corner. The X just started the next ad. Letting an ad run until it ended also start d the next ad. I could force the app to the splash page, but on Play the video just kicked me back out to the ads again. Logging on and off did not help. It feels like they hard-coded a Kick-out frame where they throw you out to the ads, but failed to implement a counter to limit the number of ads they forced you to watch, and then also failed to advance the video beyond the Kick-out frame so it could resume. When the video tries to resume, it starts on the Kick-out frame and kicks you back out on an infinite loop. But what do I know other than to advise users not to bother with this app. The same video won’t play in a browser on my phone or tablet, but with different symptoms altogether.

Glitchy and ads


At times the show I watch, when I start a new episode, it begins sometimes halfway during the episode and I have to rewind and it goes thru the ads instead of back to the episode.

And the ads, my goodness, if you watched the show in its normal setting on A&E, it would be shorter watching on A&E because of the ads. 30 mins on A&E but on this app, it feels like 40 plus minutes just to finish one episode of a half hour. Too many ads. I missed the period where it gave you the option of watching a 3 minute ad or 30 second. Of course I would choose 30 seconds and get back to the episode. Plus if you have to force ads, how about mixing the ads up and showing different ads and not taking so much time.

Or just no ads. You have ppl downloading the app, don't force ads on them when they are trying to watch their shows. Whether it is at work on lunch break or catching up on an episode they missed, or binge watching. You plug in you cable provider (which you pay for) to watch old episodes, why force ads on something you technically pay for with your cable subscription.

Compared to the other TV Channel apps, this is the worst


I pretty much only watch this channel for Horders, but there were a few other shows I might check out. The app crashes when you select "Watchlist" in the side menu. Also, while watching a show, an ad showed, after the ad there was a scene I wanted to show my wife, so I went back 10 seconds, which was around the time the show paused to show me the ad, and the ad played again after I just watched it seconds ago.

Update: This app still is pretty bad. It's annoying how often it makes me re-login to my provider to unlock the shows. I use it on Chromecast, and sometimes when I press the rewind 30 seconds button, it starts the show from the beginning. Also, while watching Live PD: Police Patrol, there was a Coventyx ad that I timed and it was almost 6 minutes long...on top of the 3 or 4 other ads it plays during a commercial period. During one 20 minute episode, it played that ad twice. When trying to get back to an episode I watched earlier, it'll start about 10-20 minutes before the part I left off.

Update 2: They managed to make this app worse. It won’t cast on chromecast anymore.
