Customer Reviews


Why would any company want to inflict such a migraine and pain on their customers. I can't even log in to the app, I've closed it and reopened it multiple times, I've closed all other apps on my device and it still says the email I'm logged into but won't actually log in. It just says Logged into (my email) with a loading circle like it's loading. I missed my show because of this an I know for a fact the Verizon apps don't work like this. This is what I get for slumming it. Good luck with your customers because this one has left the building!

Works when it wants to

This app is great when it works which is about 25% of the time. Constantly freezes up guide won't scroll and it generally takes forever for it to load a show and if you want to make it full screen you're fortunate if it lets you. It usually freezes and there is nothing to do about it restart the app reboot you iPad nothing works. Always telling me I am not in my home network in my own bedroom. Very typical of Optimum! Just one more substandard product.

This app just keeps getting worse!

I already hated this app, but since the last update it's actually gotten worse! First off, how long is that damned warning about securing the router going to keep popping up every single time I open it? Then when I close that, it crashes. Takes me five times at least to get it to open properly. I unfortunately need the app to use as a remote so I'm stuck. But if I didn't, I would delete this and never use it again. Worthless
