LOVE but a few things...
Okay, I absolutely LOVE ❤️ this app, my mom originally got it for Hallmark so me and her could watch it together, but we’ve explored all the other shows and movies. I love how you added UP TV because they play bringing up bates, Reba and heartland(and we don’t have the UP subscription so this is nice!) My whole family love to sit down in the living room after dinner and watch Family Feud on The Game Show Network or LHOTP on Hallmark Drama(my fav show lol) So as you can see, we love this wayyy better than anything, but there are a few tweaks that I would like to point out. When watching record or on Demand content and you try to fast forward or rewind you can’t see where your going and how far you’re going back/forward. Which can be annoying when you’re trying to fast forward commercials. And sometimes when I’m watching a show on demand or on record it starts from the beginning!! And then I have to fast forward to the part where I was but then I can’t see it! Also I think I’d be cool if you could search a series and all the episodes will be listed and then another section can be for the ones that will(or have) been played. Overall FIVE STARS but please fix the issues PLEASE!! I absolutely LOVE this app so PLEASE FIX THANK YOU 💫 ♥️
Love the App!
I love the app! I didn’t want to have to get cable just to watch Hallmark movies, but I almost did. I saw an add for this app on Facebook and instantly got it! It is MUCH cheaper than getting cable and purchasing the bundle with Hallmark movie channels. I also love the fact that you can record movies and play them whenever you want. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I can only watch it in my bedroom when I cast to my older version of google Chromecast. I bought a brand new tv with Chromecast built in but unfortunately it will not sync with the newer version. I really hope this bug gets worked out soon because I would really like to be able to have a Hallmark movie night with my girl friends 😊
I absolutely love this app since we “cut the cable cord.” One of the reasons we kept cable for so long was because of the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel - I didn’t want to give it up! So, this app was a great solution. I also love the fact that I can watch it on my phone if I’m working outside, at the gym or going between multiple rooms in my house. I have had no problems with it, so maybe some of the issues others mentioned have been fixed. In my opinion, if you like Hallmark and their other channels, it’s completely worth the money! And, the other channels that come with it are just an added bonus. I highly recommend!!
Great selection, bad execution
The movies are great, but frequently while using the on demand feature, an error message appears: FrndlyTV failed to load video. Typically when receiving this error message, pausing the video or the battery dying, your spot is saved where you left off. Lately, however, it has not saved the location and all interrupted movies must be started from the beginning since it doesn’t give you the capability to fast forward. So annoying! I just put the movie on silent and let it play until I see that it is at the spot where I left off so that I can finish my movie. Because of this, I miss a lot of endings.
Updated issues- but still thankful!! -there should be a Way to record only brand new shows or only the complete series....it is absolutely ridiculous that it records all shows even if it has already been recorded! Way too many to weed through - the series should also just be in its folder so you can click on anything in the folder easily Original Post -I agree that when fast forwarding i would prefer to see where i am... -also if i pause or leave a recording it should give me the option to go back to where i left off... -it’s also telling me a show i know exists on hallmark movies & mysteries is not coming up in my search of the title... -We sould be able to search a title and see all the already aired shows on demand *These are my issues with the app so far* but I am thankful there is finally a place to watch Hallmark movies and mysteries channel
I got the app so I could watch the Christmas movies. I didn’t realize that you have to record the movies you want to watch and then you still have commercials you have to watch. I was able to move past that...now when I pause the movie, it starts over again at the beginning. I fast forward to the point where I was watching it takes 5 minutes for the movie to catch up. I can’t blame my iPad cause it’s brand new and the latest edition maybe it’s my internet but that doesn’t explain the movie starting at the beginning. Really not impressed with the app. I will only keep it for the one month I have paid for. It’s not worth it the $7.99.
I guess you get what you pay for.
I was really excited to get this, as it solved the solution of getting the Hallmark channels. And it worked great. For a few hours. Now, it keeps crashing on my iPad. I’m hoping it has something to do with the system upgrade on my iPad today—though I did watch for awhile after the upgrade. This iPad is less than a year old, so it’s not my device. Glad I’m still in the free trial period. If things don’t improve within my seven day period, I’m done.
Love the app but can’t locate on new tv!
I love having access to the hallmark channels and the flexibility of unlimited recording and watching within 30 days before deletion. We purchased a new tv, Samsung UHD Series 7 and cannot find the app in the store or search list. I am upset because I can’t locate help for this issue. Also, the controls are finicky when rewinding and fast forwarding. The controls could be better. Anyone has any help on how to download the app to my tv I would appreciate the help! Thank you! Enjoy!!!
Tired of starting over
I really loved this app at first but it quickly went downhill. I’ve watched one movie from beginning to end. The last few weeks have made it where I can never finish anything because they always start over. You can’t fast forward to where you stopped either which I could also do when I first downloaded. I downloaded specifically to watch Hallmark Christmas and apparently I’m going to have to be content watching bits and pieces. It’s very disappointing.
I’m considering “cutting the cord” and using FRNDLY to get all of the Hallmark Channels. In order to do this, it would help tremendously if management would have FRNDLY work with Apple TV. I’ve not had a chance to try FRNDLY because this option is not available. My iPhone has the FRNDLY app so I assume it might work using Apple AirPlay to mirror FRNDLY to Apple TV; however, having your app available directly would be so much easier. Please add it and I’m all in!!!
Not the best
Worked great for the first few days. Now it takes a few moments for the movie to stream to my TV so I watching a black screen with sound. This happens on more than one TV in my house. Also for the past week every time I stream a movie to my Tv about half way through the movie freezes. I think it’s ridiculous to pay for something that doesn’t work. I will be canceling my service. Hopefully they will get things fixed but for now I’ll just stick with other services.
I love the service but
I absolutely love the service but the app needs work. #1 don’t ever watch a recording with your Bluetooth headphones. It’s just beep beep beep beep as if you’re skipping between songs. It’s insane. I have to use my regular headphones to keep my sanity when I’m on the bus. #2 don’t ever exit the app in the middle of a recording. You’ll never get back to where you were! This drives me crazy since I’m using the app on my phone. Of course I have to leave and come back for various reasons; calls, texts, emails etc.
Like the family friendly but way to many commercials
Tried the free trial. Sat down and watched a movie which was at least 2 hours long because there was probably at least an hour worth of commercials. Defiantly a ridiculous amount especially when you are paying monthly. Offered an option to start the movie over since we got in half way through but it wouldn’t start over. Not sure we will be keeping this app.
Love Channels, HATE they don’t display Episode numbers
I love all the frndly channels. Love that I can record shows. HATE that there are not episode numbers put on movies and TV series’ episodes. I have to waste a lot of time trying to find out which episode is in what order, often “spoiling” the plot because I begin watching an episode out of order. I’m recovering from back surgery so, yes, having clean family friendly tv to watch is very important especially now
Major technical issues- not worth the money
Got the app last November and it worked ok through FireTV for short shows - like 1 hour. Audio goes in and out and I’ve had to reboot a lot!! Haven’t watched it much until last week but had to install an update. Ever since the update it doesn’t work at all. Green spinning circle of death continues on the screen. Rebooted multiple times. Now just get an “ok” button that does nothing. They do NOT offer a refund!! Too many technical issues. Can’t watch on the phone because then the video stalls - even with the fastest internet.

Price is great if you love the Hallmark channel. My only frustration lately is if you pause it or come back to the show you have to start all over again. It hasn’t let me fast forward lately to resume where I was which is so frustrating. This wasn’t always the case.

The resolution is horrible at best... Please advise... All other streaming and antenna tv programs I use are excellent. Also too many commercials on your platform... And please don't say to upgrade...

Can’t watch showed because it is constantly buffering. Switch to Roku channel plays perfect, NO BUFFERING and it’s free. Explain to me why would I want to pay for your channel when I can’t watch what I choose too. Fix the problem at your end or I will cancel

I subscribe to Frndly TV because I love Hallmark and UPTV. What a disappointing, frustrating and aggravating experience it’s been! The 7 day free trial was perfect…not a single problem. But as soon as the trial was over it was problems galore - buffering issues, error messages when I tried to watch something, not saving my place, etc. One of the errors that I got when trying to watch a movie was “Failed to update password” even though I was already signed in. I contacted customer service and was told all the problems I was having were my fault. We have high speed Internet, are able to do gaming, use several devices at the same time and watch any other streaming service without issue. I did not receive an apology from them but instead was told I needed to subscribe to a more expensive plan. I ended up canceling and then using my secondary email to test a different plan. Again, the trial period was perfect. Once they got their money though the issues began again - my place wouldn’t be saved, the movie I was watching wouldn’t be under my “Currently Watching” folder, and at one point all my recorded movies and shows disappeared for the better part of a day!!! When that happened, I checked my account and found they took a payment on 7/1 and we’re going to bill me again on 7/30. WHAT THE HECK KIND OF COMPANY IS THIS?!?!?!! There’s an abundance of problems and it’s NOT A MONTHLY FEE. I love Hallmark and UPTV, but will not use their service!!

After 10-12 emails to “ customer service “ and going back and forth with continual blaming my equipment for being unable to exit out of the app on Roku Ultra . I followed all their advice which was repeated over and over as if they were not reading my responses I did the Roku trouble shooting which is essentially rebooting your modem , router and removing and replacing their channel . After numerous emails I realized that was for buffering issues which I mentioned “ occasionally occur “ not the exiting the app problem. When I sent a somewhat agitated email back to tell them I have very high end TVs , router and Roku Ultras which I have added to my ultra 4k TVs as they are so user friendly. They finally, finally sent an email back telling me they will add me their engineers list along with all the other people having the same exiting issue when trying to exit the app on Roku ! Why didn’t they just tell me that upfront . Instead I did reboots that I knew would do nothing and remove / add their channel which I also doubted would do anything . I spent at least 4-5 days of back and forth emails for nothing . The product is descent . I am a Hallmark fan . I am also a retired sr executive. They have to be killing it . While they offer live content , it is with in my opinion with the most commercials of any other channel . Most of their channels are the same . I am paying $7.99 per month for , granted live tv , think of the revenue from advertisers plus your 7.99 per month . Most subscribers I am guessing would use the HD vs standard definition picture quality. The difference is staggering. If you want Hallmark, then this is an ok alternative. I see what I saw in the very early years of Netflix. Numerous tech issues, yet refusing until forced to invest in larger servers and taking subscribers concerns seriously. The back and forth blame game was exactly what Netflix did in their early years until they started losing subscribers and their stock price started to fall did their CEO publicly admit the issues were due to not keeping pace with technology with growth. I have been with several very large companies that went through 50-70% annual growth rates, but we were constantly building infrastructure. Frndly TV a moderately fair value but they will start increasing their subscriber the loss in their base
if they don’t seriously address these complaints . I stream 100% and stream 12-15 channels including Several free channels and others with live tv . Frndly is the ONLY channel I have tech issues with . Test it for yourself. You may have to pay for a month as you may not see some of these issues in your 7 day trial . Good luck !

So disappointed in the line-up of shows/movies. You are televising more and more old television shows on the Hallmark channel instead of movies. I signed up with Frndly for the Hallmark movies not tv shows. Also, having many issues with the streaming. On the verge of canceling Frndly as it is not what it used to be.
