What's New in Version 2.4.2
Let me start out by saying that for this app to work you must pay for the service through Comcast/Xfinity that allows live streaming and other features available in the app. I repeat, you are PAYING for this service, it is not free. That being said this is by far one of the worst apps I have ever had the absolute displeasure of downloading. Before I made the choice to upgrade my service and download this app I did some research on it, and while some things offered by this app seemed decent, I was mostly attracted by the option to watch "any" network live on my iPhone when I was away from my tv at home. This option to watch tv live doesn't work far more than it does work. When trying to do so I have encountered countless error messages, including the most common blue screen stating "this program is currently unavailable", for absolutely no reason at all. After giving it numerous chances on many separate networks, this app has proven to be absolutely terrible. Do not under any circumstances waste your time and money on this app. I couldn't be more disappointed and irritated with Comcast/Xfinity for offering such a worthless app.
App is buggy, crashes a lot and/or freezes up. When it freezes it can be a complete halt or maybe the sound continues and the picture stays put. The commercials are so obnoxiously loud that it has put me off. This one thing would earn zero stars from me. Usually play it while I cook, etc., and can't always shut the volume down and then bump it back up. It is horrible, especially if someone else is nearby. That said, there are a lot of commercials...snooze. If it locks up on a commercial (it likes to do so in between adverts), guess what?!?, bonus, you get to watch them again. Sometimes you pull up a TV series and a random episode in the list is missing, i.e. episodes 5-12 are available, except number 8. Very frustrating. Why aren't all the episodes available, if we are catching up or trying a new series out? Where are 1-4? And 8? Will have to wait for those shows to hit Netflix, I guess.
Great app when it works
As a frequent traveller, I like to use the download feature to take content with me. This feature is not very robust, and can require a lot of effort for a simple task. Downloads timeout unless the screen is kept awake and the app is in the foreground (needs background downloads). The app will occasionally crash during a download requiring a reinitiation of the process, however in many cases, the counter will believe that content has been downloaded; a problem because there is a limit of 10 downloaded programs. The only way to reset the download count is to uninstall/reinstall the app, which of course deletes all content. If they can fix these issues, it would be worthy of 5 stars.
