When it works

The clarity of the video, and the sound is second to none.......but only for 8 to 10 minutes before it freezes. Usually, right at the best part of a movie, or bottom of the 9th with bases loaded and a walk off home run. Let's not mention that the delay from live tv is anywhere from 1 - 2 minutes depending on how many times it lags. So, all you sports fans out there, put your phone on silent if it gets sports updates and ruins the excitement of the afternoon barbecue.
No,it's not my internet connection or plan.......I have the top you have.
No, it's not my router as I got it from you and you said it was the best.
No, it's not my internet extender as I have the best.
Yes, it could be a great app and useful for everyone.
Yes, you advertise that this is fully functional.
Yes, you should really fix this app.
Yes, I should have put a TV with a receiver in my backyard.


There's no other word to describe this app except for horrible. The remote function is probably the worst I've ever experienced. I recently switched over from fios and I regret every second of it. The optimum app remote is so delayed, you'll press the up channel button and have to wait 15-20 seconds for it to communicate with the set top box to finally change the channel. Forget about using the number pad to change to a specific channel, the delay doesn't allow you to choose double digit numbers. You press 36 and it only recognizes the 3 and changes to channel 3.

Worse than the last version

I did not think it was possible that this application could get worse than last version. But it has. Every time you go in, it gives you the message about the router. Constantly, it crashes. You get video and no sound. Or you get sound and no video. If you cannot access the station, which happens a lot, you can't try another station as it freezes.
If I could get it zero stars I would. This ap used to be excellent. Each update made it worse which is how it got where it is today.
