(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.
Improved, still some room to get better
So it looks like TBS has actually been reading some of these comments (unlike some developers, *cough*ComedyCentral*cough*) because the newest version is far improved from the old one. It’s like they had a chat with their cousins over at HBO and learned a thing or two. The play controls are better, the jog buttons are a nice addition. It’s far easier to find the content you want, though it still doesn’t play about 30% of the time for no apparent reason. That’s my biggest complaint, the other two being that when the ad thing comes up and says “interact with this 30 second ad and there will be no more ads” and then shows me 3 minutes of ads anyway at every break, that’s extremely annoying. Don’t lie to us, we can count. Also WHY DOES EVERY AD STILL YELL AT ME? Come on, guys, a little compression and normalization never hurt anyone. In fact, you’re more likely to achieve your purpose because the second the ads START YELLING AT ME I TURN THE VOLUME off. So I never hear or see what they’re selling me, what a waste of money, why should any of your advertisers keep paying you? Figure it out already.
Too Many Commercials; Frequent Crashes
I spent more time watching commercials than I did watching actual content. Furthermore, the commercial countdown continued to increase instead of decrease with each new commercial. A single commercial break that started with a 150 second countdown ended up being 225 seconds long by the time it was complete. My beef is not with the commercials themselves. I understand why the commercials are there. My issue is with the ever increasing countdown.
My other complaint is the number of crashes the app experienced while I was watching. Many of these crashes happened during commercial breaks, so after restarting the app I’d have to sit through another set of commercials to get back to my show. In the end it took 45 minutes to watch a 22 minute show. No thank you.
Two stars for effort because, believe it or not, I have experienced worse apps.
