Doesn’t Work

The app crashes when tapping “Guide” which appears to be the only way to watch Live TV. (App works for watching recorded shows, although without the Guide you can’t set it to record either.) I have an iPhone 6s Plus running iOS 13.1.2

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. I am looking at the crash an hope to have it fixed in the next update.
