(FIXED)App Won't Recognize New Cable Provider

I used to love this app. but I recently moved apartments and changed cable providers from Spectrum to Verizon. This app refuses to update to the new cable provider. It just gives me an error message "AuthZ Token Failed" The error message is a dead end. There is no option for updating cable subscriber info. All attempts to contact help service within the app have been ignored which is even more infuriating! Why have a 'contact us' option if you dont monitor it and respond? Terrible customer service experience.

UPDATE: This issue resolved itself on my iPhone - but it is still not working on my iPad (strange). I'm awarding a 2nd star because at least now I can watch on my phone.

UPDATE 2: It's now allowimg me to change cable provider on all my devices. Updating review to 4 stars.

Worst app of all time for streaming

This app is SO AWFUL I only use it to watch the post season baseball. And at that, it only crashes 40-50 times a game. Rewinds itself back minutes at times. Just shuts off goes black. Closes itself. It’s like whoever screwed up the Obamacare website when they got fired all started the TBS app. So far as I write this it’s stopped 4 times. The game is in The first inning and I’ve had to restart it over 10 times tonight. Piece of garbage. As big as TBS is you would think the app would be solid. And it isn’t new. This has been like this for at least two years. Oh. And if you want full content on your smart tv app, you have to download it to your phone and cast. So even the smart TV is garbage. I’ve made zero reviews on streaming apps. That’s how BAD this app is that I took time to even write anything. It’s complete garbage. Beyond garbage. If I made an app like this I would be fired for incompetence. TBS, GET IT TOGETHER. It’s 2020. People use apps and expect they work for the most part. This is a joke.

UPDATE: about 15 minutes after I posted, no joke, it’s crashed at LEAST another 20 times and done all kinds of weird stuff rewinding. I can’t believe a major network’s app is so horrible. It’s so frustrating. I’ve had it on 4 devices over the years and does exactly the same thing. How anyone can rate this anything but a 1 surprises me. iPhone 8S plus. 6S Plus. iPad Max. And iPhone 11. All the same problems. Garbage. Just complete garbage.

Greed destroys this app

I first downloaded this app to watch 2020 MLB playoffs. I experienced problems upon launch. I was prompted to allow notifications and declined. Then the app hung on the splash screen. I thought, this is crazy... if everyone else hd this problem then the app would have an even loower rating. So I restarted my iPhone - same thing. Delete and redownload the app - same thing. Then I thought, let’s see what happens if I accept notifications and what do you know? It launched past the splash screen and to the EULA or terms of service or whatever. I finally get to watch the game on my phone, but before it will play the live stream, I have to sit through a 15 second ad. Every time. If I leave the app to respond to a text? Ad. If I swipe down to check my notifications? Ad. That’s so greedy it’s crazy. They still show the TV ads and sometimes they show different ads while TV ads are playing, just trying to squeeze out every bit of revenue they can. Greedy. And lastly, there is no PiP support, yet. Fix this stuff. The ads issue is worth 2 stars and the other issues are 1 star each. Good luck.
