Terrible Experience, But I Have No Alternative
First of all, it’s very stupid that it shows the winner of the event in the thumbnail preview. I have to have my wife navigate in the app if I don’t want to see the result.
If I stream using airplay, when the phone goes to sleep, the stream shuts off and I have to unlock the phone again.
Lots of playback issues, it cuts off in the middle of the event and I have to navigate back to where I was — which is frustrating since you can’t scrub to find where you were. Instead you have to sit through literally ten commercials just to see if you’re at the place where you want to be. Which wouldn’t be a big deal if the playback actually worked properly, but it doesn’t.
This is one of my best apps. It allows me to watch my NHL games EITHER on my iPad OR TV. Comcast can not or will not do this but wants to force me to buy services I neither need nor want in order to watch all my channels on TV or iPad. Only a few channels can I watch on ipad and usually I am forced to watch on TV like Comcast Sports Network. If NBC can do it then Comcast must be able. Hate Comcast. NBC does BEST job covering sports. I have had no problems with this app.
When it works....
When it works, it works well. When it works, I can watch hockey at work. When it works, it has good picture and sound quality. Notice the phrase "when it works?" When it doesn't work, it crashes over and over and over again. I can have perfect wifi signal, sitting less than five feet from the router, and it will still crash. And, of course, every time I hit play on the game I want to watch I have to view one of the same four commercials they play.
