Many things needed to be fixed


There’re so many small things that not running well. The biggest thing to me is the inability to smoothly transfer from one program to another. Say 1-2pm I’m watching live tv, also wants to go on watching 2-3pm schedule. Then when it’s 2pm, screen froze and turned to black. I need to exit the current screen (which is black), then hit guide, hit whichever channel I am watching again to re-enter. This is very very very annoying.
When World Cup was on, it ran to extra time/penalty shootout often which passed the schedule time to next program and I had to exit/re-click every time which was such a bummer when the match was so on fire.
It got worse. Now (after several updates they had) when I’m watching on demand or recorded content, when it passes the schedule time of live tv channel I last watched, it froze and turned black. I didn’t want to write a review until just now. Because I was watching one on demand program that forbid fast forward. When it froze and I exited and re-clicked, the program resumed on 3mins while I was in about 25mins. If I want to go on watching this program, I’ll have to watch everything all over again (because no fast forward allows). And what will happen after next hour shift of program? I’ll lose progress again? Then what’s the point?
There’re other options for live tv and on demand. I was ok with direct tv now but now I think I’d better try those other options.



I’ve had other streaming services and this is by far the worst. I got it because I’m a att customer and it was a little cheaper then the rest. Only it wasn’t. First I’m suppose to get hbo for free. And get a discount for being a att unlimited plan member. After 3 months and chatting with cs numerous times they never applied either even though every time I talked to them they said they fixed the issue. And you can only chat with them through msgs on a internet chat. No number to call. Went to att store and they told me even though they started the account there they couldn’t make changes. Said the best thing to do would be to create a new account which I did. 3 months later I still don’t have hbo and they still haven’t seen the discount I’m suppose to receive. I literally just got done talking to support who assured me they had made the changes and that I would now have hbo and the discount. Still have neither. So over 6 months, two accounts, and talking with at least 8 customer service reps, going up to att which sold me the deal, I still have the same unresolved issues. I’m not sure if they are that bad at their jobs or just lying but wow. I am quitting service and deleting app. If you where smart you’d pass on this app and save yourself the headache and just try a different service provider.
