Customer Reviews

Give me back the old version!

Just forced to upgrade the app for my Ipad 2 which I have used since optimum first created the app (without any problems), and now I get a notice saying I can't see Optimum to Go and Live TV unless I upgrade my system. Unfortunately, I have an older Ipad so I CANNOT upgrade anything. I can't even see the tv guide because the app crashes immediately. I can't watch tv shows which was something I did every evening. I can't undo the upgrade and have lost an app I enjoyed. Maybe if my Optimum bill wasn't so high, I could get a new ipad, but I sure don't see that happening. Thanks for nothing Optimum. Very angry about this.

Closed captioning problem

This app works beautifully ... Except for the close captioning. On one of my iPads I cannot turn it off. I can yell it to turn off CC, and it confirms CC is off, but it displays anyhow. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, problem persists. Only an issue on my iPad Air. Customer support hasn't helped. Developers, I hope you read this. Please look into it. Otherwise, this app is wonderful.

Awful Update!

Wow, they've prematurely pushed updates without testing before but they've outdone themselves with this one.

I not only can't watch tv on my iPad anymore but it even screwed my actual tv service up.

I can't even watch the episodes it won't let me watch on my iPad because it says...

"[The episode] is currently playing on another cable box in your household. To watch the video simultaneously on both boxes, you will be charged for an additional rental."

They are actually trying to charge me for watching on demand in my own home on my own secure wireless network that I already pay you for.

I closed the app on my iPad and shut off every box in my house except one and it still won't let me watch my show so I'm just screwed unless I want to pay their ridiculous additional rental fee.
