Supports Live FBC & FNC
I have AppleTV units on every TV in the house. If your like me, you still have older generation AppleTVs mix in with newer versions. My AppleTV generation 4 is hooked up to my best TV in the family room. Because the AppleTV generation 4 allows me to download and use many different APPs, I am able to load the individual FNC and FBC apps which are my main sources of national, global, and business news. But my older AppleTV in my office only allowed a restricted set of APPs including FOXNOW. I was never able to watch FNC and FBC in my office. But with the latest upgrade to FOXNOW that is no longer an issue. I can watch FNC and FBC on every TV in the house. Way to go Fox! I keep the suite of every available FOX APPs including FXNOW at the top of my home page on every AppleTV generation that enables support of Each FOX APP.
New App Version Is Terrible
New version of this app on AppleTV is so bad in terms of GUI usability. All it does it lock up and freeze. Finding shows is like fumbling through and just blindly pressing and swiping buttons until you get lucky. Once you’ve actually watched a show, navigating back out and to something else is impossible as the GUI freezes as it tries to buffer and pull data for all the graphics and show previews. Just bad overall and this is on a latest gen AppleTV with latest OS on it that NO OTHER APP HAS ISSUES RUNNING ON LIKE FOX NOW DOES. Fix this last horrible rewrite of the app!
To make matters worse, you can’t rewind some shows like The Orville and if you exit the show playback, it requires a FOX Profile to resume without starting from the beginning? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! App is so bad...
It also slows down the Home AppleTV GUI when the app has been running for a while and is still in the background. I always have to close the app fully in order to get my 4th gen AppleTV to work smoothly again. Leaving the app opens almost seems like it causes a memory leak or CPU cycles to be used by it in the background when it shouldn’t be.

Love available shows, but app is frustrating with chromecast
I just spent an hour and a half trying to watch a 45 minute show through my chrome cast device. Every time I hit the 15 second rewind it would go back to my starting point of the show. In other words, I had started watching a show at the 15 minute mark but whenever I tried to loop back, it would loop all the way back to that 15 minute mark. The only way I finally figured out to make it work was to stop chrome casting and watch it on my iPad or iPhone so I could slide the show forward manually then start casting again. However every time I did that, if I needed to loop it back 15 seconds he would go back to the last starting point. Extremely frustrating and irritating and will be the main reason I won't use this app with my chrome cast. It will just be easier to watch the shows on demand. It's a shame really because there are some great shows I'd love to catch up on that I can't on demand.
