Love it, but without the bugs.

I love that I can access my favorite tv shows on the go. Until maybe November when I started using the application more. When I am watching a show the app crashes. Most times it’s during the ads. The ad will play for a few seconds, and then it stops. Te creen goes black. I close the app in attempts to refresh it and it does the same thing during ads. I can never complete the show. I’m not sure if it is an issue with my own phone or Apple product. I don’t watch television and stream mostly from my phone. It would be nice to be able to enjoy my favorite channel again.

Way too many ads!!

I’ve been an OWN app user for quite a while now however it’s getting to the point to where I’d rather not bother with the app at all. With a busy schedule, the connivence of being able to tune into my favorite shows at my own leisure is a great benefit. I enjoy tv and have a few cable apps downloaded to my phone however unlike the other apps OWN is the worst! The ads are ridiculous. I thought one of the benefits cable apps has to offer is limited to no commercials. OWN is the only cable app that plays up 8 commercials and frequently throughout the show. It takes away from enjoying the show on the app. You would think after paying for the network they would at least offer some type of benefit like other cable apps but no. Also, not to mention there is no 10 second rewind/fast forward option. So whatever you do do not rewind/fast forward to much because it’s a very strong possibility all those ads you had to patiently wait for to finish will pop back up for you to have to watch all 6-8 of them again. The app spares no pity for the watcher when it comes to the ads. The ads seem to be the most important aspect of the app. It’s possible that I could just be over reacting or possibly just beyond spoiled from the other cable apps that are just way better then the OWN app.

The App crashes a lot

The app is decent aside from the frequent crashing and all these ads. It took me so long to watch episode 104 of Black Love because the app kept on crashing. Every time I go back into the app and try to fast forward where it crashed at I have to first sit through commercials then the show comes back on for a few minutes then crashes again and the same thing over again. I checked the App Store to see if there maybe was an update for the app but there isn't.

I typically watch shows on apps specifically to avoid watching commercials and I get to enjoy most shows from other networks and Netflix app that way. This app has way too many commercials, I get that those commercials pay for the show but how do other network apps manage to not have commercials? I give it 3 stars cause I get to watch Greenleaf and Black Love that is all really.
