I Can't Hate This App More

The ONLY reason I use this app at all is because half of my remote's buttons stopped working. Can't get to the office to get a new one so I'm stuck. This app is so unreliable it's more than frustrating. What may make it even worse? When I've contacted their customer service about it, they always ask for my acct number before they ask what's wrong. Why. Why do you need my account number to fix an app that (looking at the reviews) everyone is having trouble with? My acct has nothing to do with your app not even opening! Or you app telling me that "this function isn't working now, try again later!" When I finally got someone to listen to me after 3 months of complaints, the answer I got?? "Well if you go onto your laptop and use the website, you can take care of your programming needs." Really?! Why bother having the app then?! If I'm not near my computer a lot then how is this help? Why bother having an app if you are just going to tell people to not use it and use the computer? Unfortunately for me it's a necessary evil because I need the remote feature. But even then, that only works when the app actually opens!

Mercurial performance but overall decent app

When it worked, this was a decent app. I did not have any of the previously mentioned problems of the other reviewers. I was able to watch things on demand, and watch live TV on my phone (5s). However, these options only worked on my home wifi network, or when I was connected to optimum wifi. I could still set things to record when I was away from home, which I liked. Recently, however, the app stopped letting me watch anything on demand from my phone. I'm not sure why, perhaps it is just something with Optimum and my account. The app is a bit mercurial in its performance at times (like now) but most of the time it worked fine for me.

Needs a major update!

Unstable app! Huge fan of the concept of watching tv on my devices. However, any show I tune into, I receive the same error that optimum is having a hard time loading. My wifi has a strong connection and actually use optimum for my internet so it should work hand and hand. It constantly freezes and asks me to relaunch the app... Ugh!!! I understand it is fairly new, but it's 2015 this should not happen! Please please please update this app to reduce this issue as much as possible. Work on your coding optimum, I expect better!
