Ratings and Reviews
Live TV stopped working - FIXED!
UPDATED REVIEW — thanks to Greg in AppSupport, my issue has been fixed and the app is working properly now. Thanks so much. My problem turned out to be more of an account management issue, rather than a software problem. I have separate billing accounts for my Internet service and cable TV.
ORIGINAL REVIEW — When I first installed this app, I could view all of my cable channels. That functionality recently stopped working, and the app shows a message saying that it cannot connect to my WiFi network. I double- checked my router, and I also deleted and reinstalled the app. Still having the problem. I recently updated to IOS 14.4 — could that be the cause of this problem? Please fix this ASAP!

Hi, we can take a look at the app connection issue. Please email us at AppSupport@AlticeUSA.com with the following information: Error message along with error code, App version, User ID, Network (In-home wifi / Out of home wi-fi / Cellular), Date/Time of the error (Approximate), Device Model and OS, and a screenshot (if available).
Doesn’t work if you are a cable TV only customer
This app requires you to be both an Optimum TV and Optimum Online customer, even though it is an Optimum TV related product. The app attempts to check that you are home by only working if connected to an internet connection that is your Optimum Online WAN IP. However, Optimum now has ISP competition in many areas. So if you are an Optimum TV customer, but your internet is through a different (better) ISP, this app is useless to you as a TV subscriber.
This app should be updated to get with the times. Optimum no longer has a service monopoly in many areas. I understand content agreements are worked out in a ways that you need to make sure people are using this from multiple out of home areas. All th modern over the top services have figured this out, Optimum need to figure it out as well.
Optimum should also make this app available for Apple TV without being an Altice One customer. It’s time to give up on the forced cable box subscription model. Again, there’s competition all over, and Optimum is going to loose customers to other ISPs and over the top TV providers if they start competing with compelling functionality and features.

Awful - Developers need to use KISS method - new and pretty does not equal better
Where do I begin? The Guide needs to be resimplified and if you’re looking for a show that’s coming on in the next half hour, allow us to switch to that channel from the guide wherever we are on the time schedule. When going back to the guide after looking at a show’s details, go back to where we left off, not the beginning! How hard is that concept? When searching, need to sort by most recent first, regardless of the channel. Why are you listing shows scheduled a week away before those on today or tomorrow? In short, perhaps some user input before implementing this app would have been a good idea. Once again, Optimum shows its disregard for its customers. Always feel like Optimum is shoving whatever suits them down our throats making us feel like pennies waiting for change. UPDATE: Based on my review which echoes that of others and vice versa, the developers have no interest in what the user needs/wants may be. Ready to cut the cord soon anyway. So much good content available in streaming services for a better price. For what we pay for cable, a useful app is minimally expected.
