The Best TV Experience

This is by far the best app in the iTunes Store and it keeps getting better. Works beautifully, very intuitive to use. Beautiful picture. I love that when I want to hear my favorite sporting event on the road, I just tune to the channel on my phone and plug into my car, so I can listen with free data. I am no longer limited to what’s on the radio stations.

The CloudDVR is great. We can watch our recorded video while traveling and the data is free. We can record a series, and now choose either all episodes or only new episodes. We can use our AT&T TVNow credentials to log into ESPN, NBC, ABC, and many other apps. And when we travel our TV service goes with us wherever we go.

I am always recommending this to others. It way exceeds all my expectations. I think the negative reviews are fake. My experience with this service is stellar, and I know others who have it and theirs is the same.

AT&T wrecks everything

This app WAS amazing when it was direct tv. However since the switch to at&t, I cannot get more than 2 minutes, if I’m lucky, through my recordings or live shows without an error message. Extremely frustrating. All of the things posted by at&t about deleting the app and restarting your device then redownloading said app and the like are crap. I guess they want to sound like they have a solution. Well, no. Just no. Yes my computer is turned on. Thanks tech support. Although the app was amazing for my use, there were some bugs anyway. Like if u pause live tv then come back 5 minutes later and play, it will restart live. What’s the point of pausing again? Oh yeah: so u don’t miss anything. A couple of months ago I would’ve rated high but now, I’m upset that I can’t rate lower than 1 star. I hope u read this at&t. I really hope u do. Aren’t you like the biggest telecommunications company on the planet? Had your internet once. Had being the keyword. Never had the advertised speed and if a door was shut between the modem and the chosen device in use, the signal dropped like a lead balloon. Do u just have so much money that u don’t care about the consumer anymore? I’ve been paying for your cel service for 15 years (from before u took away unlimited data like greedy pigs) and paid the exorbitant amount for your internet and cable for 6 years so the least u could do is make your only free thing work again before u had to throw your logo all over it.

Works most of the time, could be better

I feel like there should be more improvements to this app, and out of all the reviews I bet people have made the suggestions already. But one huge and main complaint is that this app crashes far too often and when I go back to the middle of the show I was watching it starts over! So frustrating. I also don’t know why after I’ve watched a show from a series it doesn’t indicate anywhere that it’s already been viewed like most other media apps like Netflix, it shows the bar at the bottom showing you watched it until the end. This app only shows it when you’re in the middle of a show, but then you have to hold it doesn’t crash or it just starts over anyway. Also when you minimize the screen it keeps playing which is an awesome upgrade with the iPhone software too but if you go back and forth a few times from maximum to minimum the app crashes. So some definite things need to be fixed!

Now a couple positives- it is nice that you can favorite channel, much better looking home screen than other apps, and pretty user friendly, except for the things mentioned above. It does record all my shows without any hiccups, knock on wood, but again even after I watch them they stay in my recorded shows and no indication whether they’ve been watched by a status bar or check mark.
