What's New in Version 3.8.51
iOS 10 support, Bug fixes.
I paid $15 before the app became free with ad Support. I have always been very happy with it. I don't usually buy apps, but I think it is worth it to be ad free. I love being able to watch TV where ever I may be without restrictions on Pay channels or regional restrictions for sports games. Only one channel can be watched at the same time which includes the TV in the house and the mobile app. Works best if you have a vacation home where nobody's watching the TV so you can watch that channel whereever you might be.
WAY BETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS VERSION
This last update that has been released is way better than the previous version. I couldn't even change the channels on the iPhone without the app force closing. Ever since the update, at least the basic functions are working. I haven't used the fast forward, rewind, or play yet; but I'm just ecstatic the main functions are now finally working properly.
LOOPING... not buffering.
Buffering doesn't exist anymore!! Now there is a BRUTAL looping of the picture and audio 2-5 times before it catches up and moves on. Unbearable.. hopefully this is fixed in the next release in a year since you guys are hideous at releasing updates.
Also from 3 updates ago and STILL not fixed!!
FAVORITES...Whatever the channel number is its adding an extra first number so Ch 206 is now ch 2206 ch 502 is ch 5502 ch 2 is now 22 so on and so forth. Since they only update the app twice yearly it's prob a lost Cause but I navigate thru the favorites so this is quite annoying. PLEASE ADDRESS THIS ISSUE
