Great app with only one minor flaw

Tribeca is a nice alternative to other streaming services. It’s inexpensive and has a variety of great options. I’ve not had any trouble with streaming as I have had with other apps. My only critique is that they changed their log in system so now to log in, I have to go to my email rather than just entering my info. Bit of a hassle.

Missing listed feature of Universal Search, TV App and limited selection

I would give it four stars if not for the missing Universal Search/TV App functionality - which is listed in its version history, plus listed on Apple’s Support Page has listing this app as having that functionality. A real bummer, as I love that feature.

I am docking the other star just by way of the relatively small number of movies available. I do like the quality of the options, though.

Hopefully, the TV App and Universal Search feature will be fixed soon. If so, I will revise my rating.

Beginnings Trial with App / not without complications

I’ve only just begun using this and perhaps more because Apple took sales over it was difficult to get the app to work and accept my subscription. I had to repeat my subscription request with Apple ID over five times till it took.

Some of the films I most wanted to view had vanished by the time I got it started, so that wasn’t the best start. It has closed captioning that I find helpful, but sometimes the captions are not synchronized with the voices so that is distracting.

I’ll give this trial a month or more to decide, if this is as good as Netflix. I mention Netflix now because it newly linked to my iTunes account when it wasn’t linked before. Sadly I’ve noticed there are some new complications with Netflix now that I didn’t have when Netflix was kept separate from Apple and iTunes.

The films are widely varied, more so than Netflix for such a small selection and that is quite good.
