The positive side of UMC , I like the movies it Playing something different online. most of them. I seen before but they have real good meaning, The downside is that you have to keep pushing Resume to many time, if I'm going to paid $6.99 I would like to see the whole show without keep hitting resume so if that could be fixed I thanking about staying this is my first week.. so we will see just paid my first payment after my 7 day free trial.


Great variety of movies ! And there’s a few movies on there I’ve been dying to see. However, I can’t do anything once the movie is on. I don’t have controls while watching a movie. I have to close the app to pause the movie and refresh it to get back to the home screen .

Like the movies.

I’ve only watched one movie using the app. However the app isn’t user friendly; i was not allowed to pause without closing out the entire app.
