Very Positive

I like the app because it does include a couple channels I watch regularly. Unfortunately recently it stopped recording a specific program that I had previously recorded daily for several months and I cannot determine why (and no apparent resource who I can report the issue to).

Finally! I've been needing something like this

I was really happy about the app because I live in an area that doesn't get decent reception. A lot of the channels I watch are available through the app. I just cast through the Chromecast and watch TV comfortably. I have been waiting a long time for an over the top solution like this so I am quite thankful to BTV. I especially like watching the music channels and the cultural channels.

To some of us out here who love classic shows and can’t afford cable ! I tried an antenna but alas it only picks up a few channels, Localbtv has 2 of my favorite channels, Cozitv and buzztv , A big high five to whomever came up with this , ps a few classic movie stations would be the cherry on top to this fantastic channel.
