Chromecast support is here finally

Supermario 27

Updated: Chromecast support for iOS is finally here! I'm upgrading the stars from 2 to 3 there's still bugs that need to be ironed out with iOS Chromecast support but the it's headed in the right direction.

As someone who's used this service since the first 30 days of its startup. The service has become more and more reliable. Still far from perfect but improvements have been noticed. Filed a FCC complaint in the early stages of the service which was resolved quickly with a 3 month credit ( Go Big plan) and free HBO for a year. If you were a early adopter you pay $35 currently now $60. As far as the app like I mentioned with each update it's getting better and better. Your problem is you have a lot of "cord cutters" here and majority use Chromecast but the iOS version supports no such thing website says coming soon for months, airplay only. While google play version has it. Now I'm assuming they had some sort of exclusivity with Apple during the promotional free Apple TV with 3 months prepaid. That promotion is now OVER. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE CHROMECAST SUPPORT ON IOS?! 2 stars until then. Otherwise keep improving the other aspects of the app like you are.

Not good for families


In today’s electronic culture, AT&T (Directv Now owner) is so unrealistic about how families operate. They only allow 2 devices to concurrently stream. If you need more than that, they tell you to open another account at double the monthly costs. Tell 2 teenagers, a husband and myself that you have to agree on two programs and that the teens cannot lie in their rooms and watch on their phone/laptop is totally out of touch with current reality. Directv wants you to cut the cord and then tethers you to two streams. Netflix has a premium family plan and Sling has an upgrade blue plan that allows 3 streams. Why can’t Directv Now do the same? I’d gladly pay an extra monthly charge to up the number to 4 streams, but I can’t afford to double my bill with two accounts. Charge me $10 or $15 a month for a family plan with at least 4 streams, and I’ll gladly change this to a 5-Star rating.
My other issue with the service is that it is not listed as a tv provider in many of the broadcast apps which removes much of the ability to watch programs on demand. I have contacted several of those channels, and they responded that the problems rests with Directv Now.
