What's New in Version 5.5
Video Hangs or Won't Play
As numerous other reviews have mentioned, versions 5.4 and 5.5 have a serious bug that causes the video to hang (while audio continues) after a short amount of time streaming a live channel. Changing channels or exiting and selecting the same channel again fixes it, but only for another minute or two (if that). It doesn't matter which channel you're watching and it happens both on WiFi and cellular connections. It also happens on the iPad and the iPhone. This bug would occur in previous versions, but only rarely. Now it happens consistently.
I also experienced an error saying it "couldn't verify my subscription to this channel" and to try again later. This happened for every channel, on WiFi and cellular, and on both the iPad and iPhone (sound familiar?). After two days of receiving this error, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, which fixed this particular problem. I had to do this on each device. Alas, this did not fix the video hang problem.
I'm waiting with baited breath for the next release with the hopes that it will be fixed. My excitement at the version 5.5 update (for "bug fixes") was short lived. I hope I'm not disappointed at the next update. While I'm waiting maybe I'll check out the reviews for the equivalent Comcast app ...
Terrible excuse for a mobile app
I switched over from Optimum to Fios, which was a big mistake in so many ways, especially regarding this mobile app. Before this new update I was very pleased with how it performed and the added ability to swipe your finger across the screen to jump to the next channel in line without having to exit the video you were watching, which is now not possible after the jerks at VERIZON decided to change what was already a good app. And now to also add insult to injury, I can't watch any video without it freezing the video while the audio keeps running before the the video finally craps out. I hope the developers work out the bugs soon so I can get back to enjoying this app like I've been able to do in the past 👿
New Update, Old Problem
Update: Version 5.5 released today, which is described as bug fixes, failed to fix this problem. The app is virtually useless since the video freezes about 30 seconds after starting. And it's not my network since I can stream video from many other apps. Get this fixed, Verizon!
With the version 5.4 update, the video in Watch Now freezes constantly while the audio continues. To recover, you have to exit back to the menu and choose the channel again. This seems to happen most often in landscape mode. It doesn't seem to matter which channel, how far I am from the router, or the time of day. Waiting for a fix in the next update.
