Ratings and Reviews
So far so good
App works nicely on my phone. The shows have streamed seamlessly without any hiccups or crashes. I also haven’t had any issues with the sign-in that other users have complained about so perhaps they’ve fixed those bugs already. One thing on the app I haven’t tried yet is the stream to tv feature with my Roku device, so I’ll update my review once I do. The only thing that is holding me back from giving it 4 stars though is that I wish it allowed us to download their shows ahead of time (even with commercials pre-downloaded is ok with me since they’re short on the app). I would hate to waste too much precious data on this since I don’t yet have my own plan and have to share data with my family, so I hope they implement this capability in the future. In fact if they do, it could potentially increase app engagement by a significant amount and help differentiate them from their competitors since not many tv network apps have this capability that I know of, other than STARZ.
Terrible Live Streaming Service
I use this app for movies and tv show occasionally but mainly for streaming the NBA games. It doesn’t matter if I’m on Wi-FI (I get 200Mbps download) or am on LTE, the live streaming of NBA games is simply horrible. I have to continually relaunch the frozen app. It gets stuck on the “Commercial Break in Progress” screen about 1/3 of the time. Almost every time it signs me out of my tv provider despite allowing it to use my TV provider through the TV app on my phone and by going into the TNT settings and signing in (and saying remember me). The video playback, when actually working, is glitchy. It jumps forward and then back 30 seconds randomly and and the video quality is extremely blurry and pixelated. I won’t even get into how other streaming services allow for much more functionality (rewind, pause, etc.) during live streaming. Lastly, it’s been two months now since the iPhone XS Max and XR came out and it is still showing the video on the smaller size screen with the black bars to either side. I have never had a good experience with this app. I am a software and app developer myself so I understand bugs, errors, etc. and want to give the developers the benefit of the doubt. That being said it has been the same experience now for about two years of me hoping and waiting but now I have to simply review what I’ve seen.
Can’t just be me
EDIT: I wrote the scathing review below last year. I got an email from the developer apologizing for my user experience, promising improvements. But this year the app is somehow worse!!! Now not only does it freeze constantly and play a 30 second commercial upon reboot (making you miss game action) but it just randomly rewinds by minutes. Seriously, this is THE WORST app I use. With all the resources TNT has, why the eff is their app this pathetically awful?
I see the tnt app has a good rating. What?!?!?!?! I’ve found it to be the most buggy, least reliable, most frequently crashing app I use. As if the CONSTANT crashes weren’t bad enough, they play a 30 second commercial every time you have to reopen it. Which is doubly obnoxious when you’re watching the nba. I thought the problem might be my older iPad and Apple TV. Of course, I didn’t have this crashing problem with any other app. It was time so I upgraded. And STILL this is the buggiest, crashiest, most annoying app I use. Also, no Apple TV app makes me sign in more often. And the iPad version doesn’t have a volume control. It can’t just be me who has this app crash constantly. But they have a good score. I don’t get it. Hate. This. App.
