What's New in Version 2.8.1
* Performance improvements
Needs Chromecast! Also freezes.
I just opened up the app to watch Sam Bee, saw that the first thing advertised said "Watch Last Night's Episode" under a still of Sam Bee with a Play button over it, but when I clicked on the play button to watch it I got an info screen for an unavailable episode.
And it's not the first time this app has disappointed me. Whenever an episode freezes during a commercial and I have to quit out of the app and restart, it seems to never remember where I was, and always doubles up on the commercials when I restart the app and episode.
But the worst part of this app is that I still can't cast to Chromecast. Every other video app I use lets me cast except this one. This app makes me wish Sam Bee would find a new channel.
Not worth the hassle
I signed in with Directv like other app, so far so good but then commercials and then if you exited the app, it forgets to bookmark the show. So, you have to watch commercials and if you exit then you had better remember where you left off. A terrible experience, terrible app. You can chrome-cast with it, or mirror it to your television, and TBS does put their hardly anything on Directv on-demand and you can't watch it on Roku. The only people that will enjoy this app are masochists and people that enjoy frustration plus the same recycled commercial. If you are either of those two things you will love this app. But if you are just someone with a television subscription that would like to watch a TBS program, you are out of luck.
Not Apple TV Capable
The app downloads and initialized fine on my IPAD Mini. I signed into Charter Spectrum fine and decided to watch a People of Earth episode using Apple TV. Here is where it got interesting. The advertisement audio and video play fine (cha-ching for TBS $$$) however only the audio is sent to the Apple TV the video ends up being to a different dimension in time and space not your Apple TV. I tried other TBS programs with the same results. I did play the episode on the IPAD without issue. TBS you need to remember it is your content that is important to you customers not the advertising! Please fix your Apple TV interface. I will give 2 stars as it seems to run okay on the IPAD device standalone.
