Really good, especially if you already have the channel

This is one of the best tv apps I’ve seen, besides SYFY always has the best shows anyways. Having all those shows on demand? Yes please!

I recommend it even more if you are subscribed to the channel in your tv package like me, it gives you full access to all shows with the press of a finger.

Although people are complaining about some bugs (they do exist) most of the bugs are not the blaring in your face types. You can usually just ignore them and keep going. No game changing bugs.

Now I’ve seen many apps that offer a great selection but turn you off because the UI is abysmal but I have to say, the syfy app is very fluid. It feels very natural to use and all the essentials work really well like the search function and the recommendations etc.

All in all, it’s a Netflix quality deal at no extra cost to you if you already have the channel subscription in your tv.

app deleted

If casting to TV don’t even bother with this app. It’s just nonstop commercials anytime you do anything. Even to rewind it’s another commercial! There’s no FF or rewind 10 or 30 seconds. Try to fast forward if you need to get back to your spot (because it won’t save your spot), ALL the commercials and then 10 seconds later another commercial! Forget trying to get closed captioning or even pause. Literally none of the controls work and sometimes you think you’re just watching a commercial but when it comes back it’s playing an entirely different movie! More frustration than its worth.

What upsets me the most is no closed captioning. So people with hearing issues just don’t matter? Absolutely despicable. Shame on you for not fixing the problem. And stop asking people to tell you more about what they’re experiencing, just test it out yourself! You ARE the app developer. I’m not buying it that you don’t know these problems exist. I’m not the first one to comment. Just, shame on you.

Buggy and missing features

I do like the shows available, and I could even stand the amount of commercials if it wasn’t for the buggy video and missing features.

If you switch out of the app, or your phone goes to sleep momentarily, the video will not play at all if you try pressing the play button again. Instead, you have to exit the show and scroll to find the episode you were on again, click it, and hope it works (because sometimes you’ll get a playback error).

As for the features, there’s a rewind 10 seconds button but no skip 10 forward button. It’s incredibly annoying, especially since trying to track accurately on the video player is a nightmare, and there’s no Netflix-like feature where the show will auto-skip or provide the option to skip opening sequences/recaps that waste your time. I’d like to be able to at least skip 10 if I want to.

One last thing to note, using this app on a smart TV shows the amount of commercials in a commercial break while this does not show up on mobile. It’s a smaller thing, but it does end up feeling like you’re sitting through endless commercials when you don’t have a number in the corner to keep track.
