(FIXED)App Won't Recognize New Cable Provider

I used to love this app. but I recently moved apartments and changed cable providers from Spectrum to Verizon. This app refuses to update to the new cable provider. It just gives me an error message "AuthZ Token Failed" The error message is a dead end. There is no option for updating cable subscriber info. All attempts to contact help service within the app have been ignored which is even more infuriating! Why have a 'contact us' option if you dont monitor it and respond? Terrible customer service experience.

UPDATE: This issue resolved itself on my iPhone - but it is still not working on my iPad (strange). I'm awarding a 2nd star because at least now I can watch on my phone.

UPDATE 2: It's now allowimg me to change cable provider on all my devices. Updating review to 4 stars.

One of the Worst Video Apps

This is my first App Store review. I tried watching the MLB post season NLDS through this app and I’m greeted with constant bugs. I have to keep restarting the app to work. The MLB games lag and the video pauses then tries to catch up and action is missed. I had to watch a home run off the opposing team three times because the app couldn’t catch up to live play. Even the commercials don’t work. Imagine watching 5 secs of a commercial five times during a break and never knowing the end. I don’t like commercials the same as the next guy, but cmon. Have to watch the same 15 sec commercial every time the app has to reboot even in the middle of an inning (see first comment above). Since there is no set top box app for Apple TV prior to 4th gen, I tried using AirPlay. The video on the TV displays boxing all around. This is a format/ratio issue that other video apps don’t seem to have an issue with. My impressions of TBS is very low after using this app. These are things the developers could fix if given the time, resources, and/or training.

Very impressive

I use the optimum app very often- and often that app crashes and freezes. It’s refreshing to have an app such as this TBS app, which streams very smoothly. Never has it froze or crashed on me. I can watch my Seinfeld episodes in peace, with smooth playing from beginning to end. 👌🏾 As someone else has pointed out, the only downfall I see is the limited number of episodes I can watch. If I am paying for this channel, and this channel has already showed many episodes of a series, why is only a limited amount of episodes offered at a time? ie, only 4 episodes of Friends. Maybe at least 15 episodes at a time can be available.
