So aggravating!!

I love ID channel and for the first several months, I loved the app. However, for the last couple of months it has started acting up. The app will TOTALLY shut down at LEAST once during EACH show I try to watch. Then when I restart the app, SOMETIMES the show I was watching will appear in the “Continue Watching” category, but more likely, it’s not there. So then I have to locate the show again, and start it from the beginning, and TRY to remember where I was. Then I must try to locate this point, and more often than not, it takes 3-4 times skipping through the show; as a result, I must then endure a series of 5-8 ads each time, which ends up totaling anywhere from 15-24 ads BACK TO BACK before I am FINALLY able to resume the show.

The LAST time it crashed in the middle of an episode, when I reloaded the app and went to resume watching, there were red keys on EVERY show and NOTHING would play, due to “parental control services technical issues”!!! I was still signed in with my cable provider, and there was absolutely NO WAY on the app nor the website to set or turn off parental controls!! I ended up having to completely uninstall the app and reinstall and reactivate it!!

These issues have made my time spent watching the app SO FRUSTRATING, to where it’s very difficult to enjoy watching the shows! Please, PLEASE work these bugs out quickly! I see from other reviews a majority of these problems have been occurring for several months....

Uugghhhhh!!!!! ,

Was great...

I’ve had this app for YEARS! It’s been awesome up until the past year or so when it was decided that you had to log in with a cable provider in order to access the entire app. Now I can’t log in with my cable provider, even though it works just fine with all of my other tv apps, because it’s not on their list of providers. Also they have their shows blocked on demand on my other tv apps too because I can’t log into their app. I absolutely LOVE the ID channel and I’m extremely upset that they wouldn’t have the same list of providers as all the rest. I’d happily pay to have the full app experience if they aren’t going to add the providers. I just wish they would do something because this is getting really old. Btw, my provider is DirectTV NOW through my Apple TV and I pay for all of my other tv apps. They also don’t crash like this one does and don’t have the ridiculous amount of commercials.

Revised/additional review

I previously complained about how the ads work with this app. Now I’m experiencing a new, more frustrating problem. It seems to only have occurred after the latest IOS update on my cell, which is where I usually watch ID Go.
Every time I’m watching now it will suddenly stop and an error message will pop up advising that my cable network doesn’t allow that program to be watched. I look to see if I’m logged in. I am still logged into my network provider but most of the programs now have lock keys on them preventing me the ability to watch. I have logged out of the app, logged back in, sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the app won’t even log me back in advising me of an ‘error’. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app. I’ve also tried rebooting my cell phone. I can sometimes Get in and watch for awhile and then it will suddenly stop working, tell me my network provider doesn’t allow me to watch this program, again... all keys on most shows, again. It’s very frustrating. Honestly I am beginning to think that the developers are doing this on purpose just so we watch more ads over and over again. I mean what would you care?... it’s not like we are paying you for the app itself... so all your money is tied up with ads. Makes sense to me. But if u want people to keep coming back and seeing the ads, you need to fix these problems because we are going to start dropping like flies. Then what?
