Crashes, bugs, and logouts - oh my!
I got really excited for this app because it has a few shows I used to watch all the time and this was an opportunity for me to binge whilst quarantined... but let me sum up my thoughts with one word: GARBAGE. I initially downloaded this for Firestick 4K TV. It plays an episodes for 4 minutes, then starts to lag, then crashes and freezes up my BRAND NEW Firestick. I uninstalled and reinstalled thinking this may fix it. Incorrect. All my other streaming apps are running flawlessly without a single problem. I thought it would improve if I downloaded on my iPhone, same problems. Other issues: (1) after an episode crashes, the app constantly thinks I don’t have my provider log in. (2) if I was lucky enough to get 10 minutes in before it crashed, it makes you start the episode over when you go back in and plays ads (3) holy ads. So. Many. Ads. For example: Ink Masters. You start off with 4 ads for about 2 minutes, it plays a quick recap of the previous episodes, then goes to another sets of 4 ads before even really getting into the episode. So frustrating. I really was looking forward to this app streaming, but the app is just trash. It should be taken out to the back of the barn and shot, hire new developers, implement Agile, and get a good product on the market.
Glitchy & missing episodes
Downloaded this app because my boyfriend and I like to a lot of the shows from this network. We’re currently trying to watch our way through Ink Master from start to finish. Within the first couple seasons, an episode was missing the ENTIRE critique portion and went straight to elimination after a commercial, and in season 4, the sixth episode is missing in its entirety. In general, there are buffering issues, and times where the connection seems nonexistent. Other streaming apps don’t have this issue so we know unique to this one. Paramount needs to get itself together with this one. If we’re having these issues with one show, I am already anticipating the others having the same and/or more. ***Update*** I also don’t need to see the same exact Juul commercial FOUR times in a row in a SINGLE commercial break. UPDATE #2: I’m just going to keep updating this review as we progress through each season of the shows we watch. Episodes are ALSO misnumbered. For example, episode 1 was labeled as episode 2 and the subsequent episodes are now one off. It’s not the end of the world but it just highlights the disfunction of this app.
Paramount Disappointment, Streaming Disservice
For the number of awesome programs that are on this network, the app to watch them is pathetic. Ink Master, Bar Rescue, Marriage Rescue.... reality shows that are examples of the level of care and detail that goes into their entertainment. Meanwhile the developers didn’t think it’s necessary to put a single ounce of effort into doing their job. For a streaming service to have difficulty actually streaming.... shame. The commercials are understandable, gotta make money, repeating the same four commercials every ten minutes is a different story. The glitching, the freezing, the randomly shutting down, the repeating commercials immediately after a commercial break, plus the issue of each time you pause or try to go back you either get kicked back to the beginning of the episode or the entire app shuts down. I’m trying to understand who thinks this is adequate enough to put this on the market and give it to people and call this pathetic excuse a streaming service. Go back to school or put pride in your work. Something that’s just not this. I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.
Glitchiest app ever!!!
I never write reviews for apps even if they aren’t the best... but this app on my iPad is terrible! It constantly glitches and needs to be shut off and restarted constantly. If you try to fast forward to get to the next episode it usually freezes on the load up and then I have to exit. Or I go back to the episode list screen and it just freezes so I have to choose a previous episode and then go back to the one I want to watch. And if I do that I have rotate my iPad all over again to get it to go back to full screen or it will just stay sideways. Oh and if I shut down the app and reopen it and select my show it automatically starts playing an episode but it’s usually on the wrong season and episode completely. It’s just an annoying inconvenience and not the end of the world but it does lack smoothness and gets annoying. And happens frequently. Also I hate the commercials. If I have to watch them on the app too why even watch on the app rather than tv? Overall the app could use some updates and fix these annoying glitches!!!!!
Worst app I’ve ever used
This is the worst app I have ever used- if you don’t close the app after you start watching a show and you just lock your screen with the app still open it will restart the show from the beginning when you unlock your screen, every single time! If you’re casting the app to your tv and you start casting in the middle of an episode- it starts the show from the beginning once it’s been transferred from your phone to the tv. The ads come in 4, which isn’t a big deal for me, but sometimes even after watching all 4 it will make you go back and watch another 4 ads. It doesn’t move it the next episode after you’re done with an episode, it will literally just keep playing the same episode over and over again until you manually change it which isn’t a huge deal more just an “FYI” type thing. I hope the app developers put an update out soon to fix issues like these because it’s full of them! Paramount is too big of a company to be having these kinds of issues with their app.
Both app and website are broken
I downloaded the app because on the website, the option to make the screen full-sized is unclickable. Upon downloading the app, I cannot watch anything, because my service provider is not listed. I had no problem finding and logging in to my cable provider on the website, it's just the app that doesn't give me the option to log in. I see from previous reviews that other people have had the same problem and had to reach out to customer support via email. There is no reason that I should have to send an email and wait for a response to resolve an issue that has previously been brought to your attention! The one star review will remain until you put in the work to fix your app so that users don't have to jump through hoops just to use the service. In response to the developer responses advising me to email customer support instead of them fixing their app, I’m here to inform you that I did email customer support on February 8th and am STILL waiting on a response!
Like another reviewer, I downloaded the app to watch Yellowstone. Awesome show. The app needs some work though. They’ve fixed the show order sequence. I didn’t have a problem there but when I tried to recast the transmission onto my Apple TV it wouldn’t or couldn’t find it. Had to watch the whole show on a mini-tablet. Not the most comfortable viewing experience and it took away from the beauty of the scenery in the show. It also is constantly circling and it does require you to sign in with your cable provider... what’s the point of that? I want to unplug not have to stay connected or have to up my plan to watch this show....defeats the purpose. Must be a licensing thing. Yellowstone is a great drama set in Wyoming (but filmed in Utah). Beautiful vistas, terrific actors, lots of lawless killing though, but that’s the way of the West they want to present.
Stop with the awful ads
The app used to be amazing, but they’ve recently started playing the same 4 or so ads that promote music artists. These are the worst songs ever. There’s a rapper who repeats the phrase “I’m spendin’” literally approx. 30 times. There’s one with a “Grammy nominated” artist who talks about wanting sex on her birthday but she’s just screwed instead. The one they debuted today takes the cake, though. You don’t even get to hear the artist’s songs because they make it sound like you’re changing the station on an analog radio and it cycles through, what I would presume is, their whole album, letting you listen in two second spurts. Paramount’s marketing team has no clue who they’re target audience is, and it’s clear because of their ads. I mean, these are objectively awful ads to anyone, but they don’t even attempt to engage their viewership. I’m just excited that I only have two more episodes of Ink Master so I can delete this app.
Want to love this and will w/o bugs
I love the lack of commercials. I downloaded this to watch Yellowstone and am finding it’s skipping through scenes randomly. I have been using cc and am not sure if that’s the issue. It seems out of sync after the video skips forward. I would love to see a 10+ or - sec fast forward or rewind, but not sure if that works with a platform that has commercials or not. Other than that, hats off of and cheers to whomever decided on the very brief commercial pauses! They are much more effective when they are like this! Mobile devices are much safer too-they aren’t thrown at the wall or out of the window as much. The volume on the commercials is a bit loud...better than an epi pen, and much more readily available for a quick adrenaline surge 🤣
Frustrating - several glitches
I have signed in with my credentials and it skips all over the show I am watching cutting out 2-5 mins from random scenes around the time of commercials. This is not acceptable and a glitch in the app needs to be addressed. Show being watched in particular is Yellowstone. There is a good 12 mins of the show from the best I can tell that you are not able to watch due to the app jumping forward and showing scenes twice in random places. When I sign in with my provider there should be less or no commercials involved especially when I’m “rewinding” or going back in the same episode I’m watching to try and see what has been missed due to the app having a glitch. Can elaborate more if you need the help. I Have the fastest internet connection available and this freezing is not acceptable.
Show is great, app not so much
I downloaded this app to watch Yellowstone. The show is very good which leads me to watch 3 and 4 episodes back to back but when the episode finishes it doesn’t continue on to the next one. It ends up repeating the episode I just watched. When I try to select the next episode it either freezes and doesn’t go anywhere, or I get a black screen with audio only. I’m using Chromecast and I have to get up and unplug it from the back of the TV so it’ll reset itself. I cast shows to the TV all the time and don’t have this problem with other apps. Another issue is that the closed caption continues throughout the commercials so when the show comes back the CC is not in sync. The audio during commercials is very loud.
Not enough playback options
During a show, there are no options to jump forward or jump back. I would prefer to have an option where I could jump forward or jump back 10 seconds. Currently the only way to go forward or back is by dragging the progress bar with my finger which is difficult. Also, when I want to turn the picture from portrait to landscape mode, it will only landscape one direction, not both. The subtitles ( when CC is on) disappear too fast; sometimes it has moved on to the next line of dialogue before the character has finished what he’s saying. That needs to be looked in to.
This app is the worst streaming app of all the networks. It goes into auto play and you can’t select a video when in landscape. You also can to choose the which way you want to view in landscape. My case only allows for one angle viewing sideways and that means I would have to watch upside down. It also does not work on Apple TV or fire tv. Constantly glitching. I downloaded only to watch ink master and it’s making me hate the show with how many issues I have to deal with all because paramount doesn’t allow any on demand streaming through fios. It also plays the same commercials on repeat over the breaks (like the exact same commercial 5 times in a row every commercial break). Please fix your app.
Replays episodes, needs work
I installed this to watch Bar Rescue. I’m able to watch the shows. I have an issue where the same episode I’ve already watched keeps trying to play though. Frankly I’m getting sick of that episode. Also they need to set it so that you can play episodes in order by season. A few times I was watching an episode in season one and after that episode is done it’s playing a random episode from season 2 or 3. I binge watch a lot of shows and like to play them from the beginning to end. Please fix these issues so that we can enjoy our shows better.
Negative Stars are in order
Not sure how else to say it, this app is garbage on almost all accounts. Every where I’ve downloaded it. iPhone, Smart Tv, and Firestick. It’s Terrible (and that’s being generous). It can’t even cast properly to google Chromecast. Oh and if you want to pick up on an episode you’ve paused later on? Forget it. Not only does it not save where you left off, it forces you to watch two ads just to get the episode back up, and then depending where you left off in the episode, you might be watching 4-6 more ads just to get back to your spot. I’ve had 0 positive experiences so far with this app across 3 different platforms, if it wasn’t for Bar Rescue this app would be so so SO deleted.

You're streaming service sucks. Fucking freezing all the time. Takes 2 hours to watch a 40 min show and thats without ads. Also, we paid for no ads, and still get ads. Fucking scumbags.

Watching Star Trek Discovery and the app keeps repeating part of the episode. This has happened at least 5 times in different episodes. Also commercials are constant, (not “limited!”), repetitious, and timed in odd places, like 60 seconds before the end of the program!? This makes the whole experience annoying, and I think I will end my subscription. NOT entertaining!
