Syfy Now is your destination for full episodes of your favorite Syfy shows, including new episodes available the day after they air for most programs. Once you open the app, log in with your cable or satellite provider account to gain access to the currently available episodes. The same app works on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch – you can even sync your watchlist and in-show progress across multiple devices via iCloud.
If your cable or satellite provider isn't currently available via Syfy Now, there's still plenty of great things for you to enjoy, including selected full episodes and clips from Syfy shows, behind-the-scenes interviews and more.
Syfy Now features:
* AirPlay! You can now stream Syfy Now to your Apple TV. Start the episode in the app and stream to your television.
* Add episodes to the watchlist for later viewing.
* Season pass feature adds new episodes of your favorite shows to the watchlist.
* Cross-device syncing via iCloud allows you to sync watchlists and pick up where you left off on any iOS device you own.
* Share what you're watching via Facebook, Twitter and email.
* PLUS: You can watch Syfy shows and movies LIVE inside the app, just as if you were watching the network on your television. So it's like watching live TV - just on your computer or mobile device! (Note: Most of Syfy's shows are currently available, and we're working hard to make those that aren't available soon).
Current television providers include the following:
Time Warner (Now Available!)
Wide Open West
...and many more. For a complete list of providers, download the app or visit http://www.syfy.com/providerlist

Happy but with ONE request...
I enjoy this app. I wish there were fewer commercials but I can live with it. I don't even mind that I have to log in with my cable service provider to watch episodes on my iPad. But for the love of all things holy... can we PLEASE save my cable log in info in the app? Total first world problem but... Scrolling through the list to tap my provider, then typing my log in and password... EVERY TIME? I get it... Confirm my cable subscription whenever I use the app... but there's no reason you can't give me the option to save the info to log in. Thank you!
Commercials and crashes
I love being able to watch Syfy on my iPad but I hate that this app has 3 times as many commercials as other cable apps and that it constantly just freezes when an episode I am watching ends. I have to push the home button and do the double press of the home button to clear the app and reopen. You cant even close the app the usual way to get out when it freezes. Also when watching a series why not automatically cue up the next episode for binge watchers like me?
Also no Apple TV and why only 4 or 5 episodes of a series? I love Syfy please fix this app.
Better than others
I catch up on a lot of my favorite shows and find new ones to watch via apps but most have technical glitches that make watching tv a bit annoying. So far I have not encountered any issues with this app and hope it continues to run smoothly. I also like that I can watch an entire season of a show and not just the last 5 episodes.
