Horribly bug ridden
Be warned: you are punished for "scrubbing" or fast-forwarding any videos by being fed commercials even when you just watched a pair of commercials a moment before. You better make sure you land on the spot you want the first time or just replay the two-hour movie you were in the middle of from the beginning when this app stalls on you (and it will).
There is no 'recover' feature that most other streaming apps have where it resumes the video you were watching at the spot it was at previously. And if there is I haven't experienced it once. The pause button doesn't count guys.
I find it very discouraging that in 2016 companies continuously underbid software development/IT contracts to the exclusion of their own best interests. Fox Entertainment Group had a good opportunity to boost their reputation and generate buzz but blew it. At least they're in good company - HBO Go, Max Go, Starz et. al aren't much better.
Instead of "FXNow" it should be "FXMaybe"
A few things to keep in mind BEFORE you download:
- you'll need a cable tv provider to use this app. Without one this app is useless. You can't watch anything (much like HBO Go, except with this app your forced to watch repeat commercials over and over and over again....sooooo painful).
- there is no way to stop the horrible repeat endless commercials. You see them so often you start to hate the product they are advertising.
- sometimes slim pickings as to what you can watch. Content isn't always there. What is the point to the app?...I mean it, why make me download something, then make me jump through hoops to use it, AND then offer little to nothing (except endless commercials).
- it's glitchy. I was in the middle of watching something when it switches to a 2 minute commercial and then BOOM back to the beginning instead of continuing where I left off. So I tried to skip forward back to where I was but it glitches out again after the forced 2 minute commercials. After 4 more tries I was finally able to watch the whole show :/
- in short I hate this app
But, if you like repetition, unreliable content, and have nothing better to do, well then this app might be for you! Who knows, maybe they will improve it.
I love using this app on my Apple TV! & it's also great on the go on iPhone/iPad. They have the best programming available with a wide, ever expanding selection. Full seasons available on most TV Series such as Always Sunny in Philadelphia...Also, they have Simpsons World; every Simpsons EVER available to stream! Plus you can Live Stream any of there networks with cable/satellite subscription...FX (East & West), FXX (East & West), FX Movies. There is always about 25-30 movies to choose from. They always have the best action & comedy flicks. This app is a must have.
