Customer Reviews

Great Chromecast Experience

I had to give you guys credit where credit is due. Despite the many bad reviews, the app worked really well for my use case. It has allowed me to easily stream shows directly from my phone. No longer do I have to hook up my laptop to my TV.

It was really easy and intuitive. Just pick the show, pick the episode, press the Chromecast icon and boom Nature, Frontline, Nova all at a smudge of a screen!

Don't let the bad reviews get ya down, at least in the way I use the app it has worked flawlessly. Thank you!

Can't get any videos to load

For over three weeks the app tells me that PBS is having technical difficulties and to try again later. I think I am getting tired of waiting for later. So frustrating, before this I was telling everyone how wonderful this app was. Not anymore, I asked for assistance through the app. They created a work order ticket and said I would get a response within the next 48 hours, that didn't happen either. Five days later I am still waiting.

Useless - Freezes up at start of commercial

The app opens and displays the various shows available to watch. I click on a featured episode and read the summary, then click the arrow to begin watching the show. A commercial begins and one second later the image freezes. That is as far as it goes - I can't watch anything. Possibly the videos are more than my wi-fi can handle? This doesn't happen with other video apps on my device.
