Still some issues

The concept is wonderful and I love that we can finally get HBO since dropping our cable almost 2 years ago.

The biggest problem is the execution of this app. The audio is so messed up. Sometimes the audio just stops for several seconds, up to a half a minute while the picture plays flawlessly (so it's not a lag/internet speed issue that I can tell). While it happens less frequently, sometimes the whole picture turns into snow right in the middle of a show and then goes right back to normal after a few seconds. Again, this is not an Internet issue, it's obviously the app bugging out. This is beyond obnoxious. It's far FAR worse on Apple TV than my iPhone or iPad. Those devices seem to work slightly better with this app, but who wants to watch TV regularly on their phone instead of a normal sized TV?

It's almost impossible to stop a show and turn it back on and pick up where you left off. It doesn't always recognize where you stopped. They added the feature where the next episode in a series automatically starts playing so you don't have to keep going back and forth, but the time until the next show loads is ridiculous. Netflix is like 15 seconds to start the next show, HBO is something like a minute and a half (which, cmon, no one wants to watch the credits roll forever).

Don't listen to the negativity

I give 4 stars because, true, it's not as user friendly as it could be. There are a couple bugs. But all the negative reviews I've read are misleading. It took me about 14 seconds to figure out how to navigate the app. Also, I use chromecast and there are no major issues getting it onto my tv.
The only negatives are as follows...
Yes, when the app first opened immediately after signing up it said subscription not found. Oh no. I had to click a button to reconnect. Horrible, I know. Then there is an issue with the remote on my phone to the chromecast. When the phone times out and I have to power it back on, the remote is gone and it doesn't register that I'm watching a show. Simply go back to home and click the cast icon. Click the show title and the remote comes back. Not a deal breaker if you ask me.
I realize some people demand perfection but it's the apps issue, not the service. I'm keeping up with game of thrones and I can watch the episodes of True detectives and eastbound and down that I've missed. Plus many other things I haven't even gotten into or thought of yet.
Bottom line, you get a free month. If you don't like it, cancel. But you will. Unless you're a whiney, picky, C U Next Tuesday. Enjoy!
