App Has Major Problems

Like many other people, I downloaded the JME app to replace the on-air TV Japan program that discontinued service. After one week, I am very disappointed with the app. Most people that are new to JME are from the North American region where there is time change of 10-12 hours. Unfortunately JME does not have a record capability. Staying up past midnight to watch your favorite show is not a very good solution. JME needs to create a record solution, or offer repeats of NHK shows. Although JME’s menu offers a My List option, it does not work at all. Since there are a lot of elderly folks that were forced to make the change from TV Japan to JME, a tutorial on the app options would probably be desirable. All in all, the app needs major work to justify the $25 a month fee.

Generously Gave Two Stars

Content has promise, though still inadequate. The performance of the app is, without doubt, the absolute worst of all streaming services. We paid for a yearly subscription with the expectation that we would be able to watch actual content. Much of our time is spent watching a circle rotating on the screen. Instead of using resources to send representatives out to talk up the service they need to hire technicians to fix the horrible bugs that plague the system.


One of the Worst Streaming Apps Ever

"Saite!" The worst!
Developers should be ashamed. Movies are ok but limited. TV dramas are a pitiful mess. Streaming channels schedules are only forward-time looking so you cannot look back even in the same day to see what Episode number you may have/probably missed. Episode numbers are not sequential but jump around. Completely inconsistent app interfaces between Web, iPad, iPhone and AppleTV. Schedules frequently freeze. No ability to communicate with a human. The Chat option doesnt understand anything you write. Streaming Channel 1 information and title/episode label doesnt match Streaming Channel 2. This is crazy and completely negligent. Be forewarned: you will get to view Japanese movies many with english subtitles, you will even get to see Streaming tv series episodes, but you will never be able to follow them sequentially.
