When I run this app on my IPAD Pro, it just buffers. If it does play, it runs for 3 minutes and just buffers again. I used this same app and IPad last year with zero problems.

App keeps force closing and doesn’t save the video where you left off!! Takes 4 hours to watch an hour and a half movie!!!!! It’s been doing this for a month and only getting worse. Does it every 5 to 10 minutes. I shouldn’t be paying for an app that never works!!!

I am also having problem with all of the Hallmark channels. It sometimes freezes, sometimes goes black for a min or so. I have to back out of app & re-enter. Then now I am getting message Roku can't keep up please change the channel. If I change the channel it works & change the channel back it happens again. I tried uninstalling app, restarting roku & reinstalling app. I am STILL having problem. THIS IS VERY IRRITATING. I canceled my Dish service & this is the only way I have to watch my Hallmark channels now.

Hallmark Drama is not working and hasn't been since this afternoon. The other channels that I've checked are working. I've tried it from roku and from my computer and it will not connect on that channel on either.

By Roy Smith

The channel will post a message window that the Roku isn’t keeping up and to change the channel. Used to be infrequent however becoming more so with the incidence occurring 2-3 times an hour.

My FrndlyTV app constantly stops and buffers multiple times during every recorded show/movie I watch!? Is there anything I can do to stop that?

By Nicole Kleve
Aug 19 2022

The guide on friendly does not move with the time of day so it stops and does not continue with the shows you have to manually arrow over to the time of day to get a live show

I recently signed up for frndly TV . I was excited when I found out that frndly TV had Hallmark channel because it's the only TV I really watch but I cannot afford $100 a month or more for cable. But unfortunately the TV is always buffering I can hardly watch it wether it's live or recorded. I don't have this problem with any other of my subscriptions. Please fix this problem or I will have to cancel.

This website / webpage shows that the Frndly App has been having this "Slowness" / "Buffering" issue since back in May this year.

I am trying to watch shows on this app tonight...and I can't!!!! The slowness, the buffering, the stopping is getting worse!!!!!

I, like a lot of other people, love this service, but ENOUGH is ENOUGH...Get the app, the Frndly App, fixed or let everyone know that it will not be fixed so that we can cancel our memberships...NO ONE wants to just pay money month after month after month. ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!!!!

By Barbara E Denton
Jul 28 2022

I have been a subscriber since June 16, 2021. My subscription was renewed and paid for June 16, 2022. Now when I try to watch a movie I get the message "You need subscription to watch this program" What is going on? Also, closed caption is not working even for programs I have previously watched: due to my hearing loss I need closed captioning or I can't watch the movie! This is getting worse by the day! Please respond with the answer as to why this is happening.

By Vivian D

The app never saves any movie/show I am in the middle of. If I go to continue watching, whatever I didn’t finish watching yet is not there so I have to find the show/movie again and then FF to the part I was last watching it. Very annoying glitch. I can’t remember things like this , it’s why I depend on technology. Getting close to cancelling the service even though the programming is great for me.

Sent a message to help desk but no answer. Can’t access the programs we recorded. Also it keeps going down and when we go on guide none of the programs pull up. You need to notify your customers when you have a problem. Have not heard back from the email I sent. Not happy with frndly.

I was trying a Hallmark movie on your app and all it does is constanting interrupting the hallmark movie while buffering and spinning gconstantly.

I like the Friendly app with the TV channels you provide, however I will cancel your service if you can't fix your buffering issues.... please fix asap.....

Thank you

For the past week (coincidentally right after I paid for a full year of Frndly TV) the app has been having problems. In the middle of watching something - anything at all on any channel and on any recording - the picture will freeze but the sound will keep going. There's no way to fix it other than to exit the app and get back in. I am watching on a television and I have netflix, prime, etc. etc. and have never had an issue with those channels, so it is not my wireless - it is Frndly TV. Is there a way to fix it?

By Michelle

This app keeps stopping after 5 minutes of watching an on Demand movie, stating “you have reached your limit “ on number of active screens but I only have one screen active, what a rip off. I will be terminating my membership. This doesn’t work and the streaming is fuzzy
