The App crashes a lot

The app is decent aside from the frequent crashing and all these ads. It took me so long to watch episode 104 of Black Love because the app kept on crashing. Every time I go back into the app and try to fast forward where it crashed at I have to first sit through commercials then the show comes back on for a few minutes then crashes again and the same thing over again. I checked the App Store to see if there maybe was an update for the app but there isn't.

I typically watch shows on apps specifically to avoid watching commercials and I get to enjoy most shows from other networks and Netflix app that way. This app has way too many commercials, I get that those commercials pay for the show but how do other network apps manage to not have commercials? I give it 3 stars cause I get to watch Greenleaf and Black Love that is all really.


Wish I had something nicer to say...

I was absolutely THRILLED to find the OWN app and start watching quality shows. So much so, that I cancelled Netflix. I am shocked that this app is so glitchy. It continues to just kick me off during an episode ... then to add insult to injury, once I get the show and episode pulled back up, it starts it all the way back at the beginning vs. remembering my place. And then, the commercials... sweet niblets. Sooooo long and the exact same ones over and over again. So when I fast forward and try to find my spot, I get a truckload of the same ones I have been seeing for way too many minutes each break. Love the network, ready to give up and go back to Netflix because the app is making this way too painful. Fingers crossed OWN is not OK with this having their name and brand behind it and the issues get resolved quickly!

The app no longer works on my device

Up until about a week ago the app worked great. I was able to catch up on missed episodes. The latest version of the app does. To play on older versions of the iPad. An update to an app should not block older versions of device from seeing its content. I am able to download the app, it then it forces me to get the update in the App Store. When I go to the App Store its aye that the newer version of the app only works on 10.0 iOS. My iPad does not update that high. And I'm not buying another one just for the OWN app. All other apps update without any issues or problems with the version iOS I have. I also have a smart tv that is Google and the own app is. To available for that device at all. I guess I won't be able to watch anymore of my OWN shows.
