Ratings and Reviews
Poor video quality and lack of closed captions
Really? Really? We now live in the days that has amazing technology and still seems to me that no one is using it properly. This app focuses on users to watch on mobile to save data. Not for streaming at home with unlimited nbn because Chromecasting to a big tv or projector option is there but video quality is poor. Also most frustrating is, there’s no closed captions option at all. Come on!!! Every app developers seems to always forget that there are more than 2 million hard of hearing and deaf people in Australia whom need closed captions. Great for watching live tv on the move using a small mobile screen. Will be awesome if it had closed captions just like every TV. Needs lots of improvements and settings such as closed captions and higher video quality options for home streaming using unlimited nbn. If it had those options then will be cool and awesome to setup a projector in our backyards using chromecast device and this app to watch live football along with deaf friends without setting up a digital tv receiver and fiddling around with antenna cables. I bet many other hearing people will like the idea of watching footy in their backyards that only need 4 things. Projector, screen, chromecast device and Freeview FV app. Come on developers, think a bit harder please. Thanks :-)
"Access to catch-up TV" feature advertised is misleading and deceptive
I read some reviews but thought I'd give it a try, maybe an update had improved it, but was disappointed, and this app lasted 5 seconds on my iPad.
They really need to say a *disclaimer that all corresponding TV networks' apps are required to use catch up TV. If this was a paid product, it would be called 'misleading and deceptive conduct' under Australian Consumer Law by not saying other things required in order to use their advertised features. Yeah I get it - network content/advertising contracts etc. but at least be up front that this is NOT a replacement of other networks' apps.
I didn't bother trying any other features before deleting this app. I'm sure others may appreciate the guide etc *shrug* but for me this is not fit for the purpose advertised.
Previous prog .
I really like the ch selector line down the screen . It’s a great way to see clearly what’s on and when .
I only watch abc, sbs or NITV . I cannot stand commercial drivel . Reality tv is cheap manipulated nasty childish rubbish. The news and current affairs programs are in the same basket I want facts not sensationalised chosen pieces manipulated by a biased owner .You have a program guide but I can’t see previous programs so i can’t see what I’ve missed . When I look at catch up there are to many programs to go thru to find what I’ve missed. Being able to see the previous weeks programs would help me to prioritise what I’m going to watch. I’d also like to choose in the app what channels I want . I don’t have a lot of time for tv viewing , when I do I want to find my prog fast as opposed to going thru all the channels and all the programs.
I never try to stream to my tv via ph or iPad. My iPad is my go to gadget for streaming . The dropouts during streaming are so common that viewing is a complete and utter waste of time .
I refuse to pay Murdoch or any other for what was once free ! I can entertain and amuse my self without the need to feed another insecure billionaire
