Poor streaming app that feels years behind the rest.


While it is nice to have a dedicated streaming location that is legal there is little to make it worth it, especially for a price. This is more than a little expensive for the content when compared to every other streaming site, especially when you consider these shows are coming to us second and the only real costs are dubbing and hosting which only make up a small portion of overall costs.

The app is slow, unintuitive, and buggy. When you launch is silences any music or podcasts you have on, loads, shows you and unskippable animation, and then loads the main page. Videos are extremely slow to start and constantly need to buffer more than any other app I have used. I have been unable to watch in portrait mode any videos. If you skip ahead with buttons or by dragging the location indicator it will stop and need to be restarted meaning you can only reliably watch a show from start to finish. If you close the app or stop playing a video you will almost often find it restarting from the beginning, again with no way to select location. You also have to log back in everytime you close the app.

The genre list and search functionality is bare bones and poor to use. Certain settings like maturity filtering can't be changed in the app. All in all a poor experience I will not be paying for.

Apple TV app needs one thing...


I love the app overall, but not being able to hit the Menu button and return to your place on the show list (like when you want to read the description of a show then return to your place on the list) is a bummer. Instead I have to go back to the main screen and start over, which often means I have to scroll BACK through hundreds of shows just to get to the one I just read about. I’ve tried everything to fix this in case it was me doing something wrong, but it’s not. Now the only thing I can do is not click on a show unless it really really looks interesting enough to watch based on the photo, and often I end up not watching it, or else I have to search through all that all over again. Or I just have to browse shows on my phone and add them to my queue for the Apple TV—browsing on the Apple TV itself is terrible. If you guys could fix this issue, that would be sweet.

It’s better than before but still needs work


A year ago this app was a complete mess. I have fiber internet and it would buffer about every 3 minutes. But now I’ve recently come back to it and it seems to be working wayyyy wayyy better than before. Watched all of high school dxd and it buffered once. But still you guys need to fix the glitch with the search engine on consoles and mobile. Seems like every other time you go to type something in it freezes. Sometimes to the point where you have to close out of the app. Another thing. I really wish you guys offered a little bit more seasonal anime. Even if it’s only subbed I always keep up season to season and it’d be nice to make Funimation my go to place for all anime . I do understand with licensing and partnerships it can be kind of difficult but I’m sure you guys can figure something out. I’ve been a premium user for over a year and overall I’ve enjoyed my experience. ^_^
