Get an Apple TV app please
Downloaded content never works
They are super slow to upload new content months after new episodes are on tv. I mainly got this to view offline content every download will not play. With no connection it just says label. Once I have a connection all the text that says label changes to the downloaded episode. Update - emailed support as they asked. No reply tried to download shows today. They download but as soon as my iPad is in airplane mode the icon changes from the show to just the word label again. Letting my subscription expire the whole point of having this app was to download and be able to watch them in airplane mode on flights.
App is terrible; use the motv website
By One Eyed Jack Flash
Paid $99 for a year but the app that they supply opens and immediately closes in about 2 seconds. Latest iOS and app version for my iPad. My ticket was assigned to someone named Phil. He stopped communicating after my four messages asking for a solution. Skip the app. Sign in thru their website instead. Great content and worth the money.
I mean great app for all hunting shows! I have been looking for something so I can watch my hunting shows on the go! The app needs a lot of improvement! I think the price point needs to be lowered for the problems the app has! It is a good app! The thing I hate about it the most it does not save my point in the show, where I exited out of the app! Then when I go back into the app! I have to find the show I was just watching, then I have to find my exact spot I was at in the show! I really don’t like having to do that every time!! Please fix! Lower the price till the app gets fixed! I mean Netflix has way more shows and charging 2 bucks cheaper! I mean come on guys, not really everyone is going to pay for an app that is no where close to top of the line! Also still deal with 10 minutes of sponsorships! So if this stuff don’t get fixed you will loose a customer!
Good content, app function is crap
I have started my free trial. The shows offered are great, but the app is terrible. I try to save content into my favorites,but every time I go to my favorites nothing I saved is there just a list of random shows. I frequently got error messages when I was signing up and app would restart, etc. I’m not sure I’m going to keep the subscription?
Good content...horrible app
I rarely take time to review anything but this app has so many bugs, glitches, crashes, missing functionality, you name it....oh and they charge me $99.00 a year to subscribe....oh and they have not improved anything in the 15 months I have subscribed. If it wasn’t for my favorite show MLF I would cancel and gladly delete the app tomorrow. Hopefully they will get a clue and understand that customer experience is a huge part of having an app and actually spend some time and money making a good app....otherwise just make its web based only and save everyone the headache....pretty sure most 15 year olds with computer science class could come up with a better app to deliver this content. Sorry...but the truth hurts sometimes!!!!!
Fix this thing!! It's the most frustrating app!! Why??
First, I love the content, I love the immediate access to that content (that i was sold on). I don't even mind the adds because they are relative to the things I like... BUT... this is the most ridiculously frustrating app I have ever had.. it is the only content I've felt is worth a $10 a month subscription other than Spotify premium.. and that is the reason I am so irritated with the app, I'm paying for it every month, and I can't get through a single episode on any of my iPhones, iPads, etc without it freezing and crashing multiple times, usually requiring closing app completely and restarting it, just to try and find my place in the episode I was watching, which it does a terrible job of keeping track of what you have watched, many times I've had to completely shut down and restart the device to get the app to work again. All of my devices are up to date on software and are newer models. So let me list the most excessive frustrations: signing in is a 2 step process, every time, thankfully it remembers your password, but you still have to navigate the tiny "sign in" link hidden in the corner while a huge create account button is front and center just to get to the login menu.. why can't this app maintain my subscription info??? Even if you switch apps for a moment or lock your screen, your back at the start screen inviting you to create an account and start over.. fix this! Then, once you drag through that again it slowly (regardless of internet connection) populates the categories of shows, now this would usually highlight your interest in any other app, but no, it's random at best, if anything I've noticed I have to sift through or search the shows I watch every time.. spend some money on a interest algorithm, or at least put favorites at the top!!! It almost acts as if it's discouraging you from watching the same shows... so if you haven't thrown your iPad at this point and you've found a series you want to watch, you get to shuffle through a very slow, awkward season menu, to see the episodes that populate slowly (again, regardless of internet connection).. finally you select an episode and it slowly loads and starts, at last you start watching your selected show, and then after all that fun, it will completely randomly go black screen and kick you out of the app.. then you get to repeat the process and hopefully find the place in the episode you were kicked off at, good luck, because as I mentioned earlier it is terrible at tracking shows you have watched and it has probably hidden the series even deeper in its menus for you to slowly dig through while it glitches and delays every input you make... nothing is smooth flowing, ever... so you decide well I'll just download the episodes so it can't have any connection issues that kick me off, good idea, won't stop it from crashing randomly still, and the last part that really kicks you in the pants, is that even if the episodes are downloaded, you MUST have an internet connection to START the freaking episode!! What the crap is the point of that!!! Once it starts it will play without Internet, otherwise it just freezes or crashes the app if your device is not connected to the internet. Interesting enough, if you don't have an internet connection when you open the app.. it will automatically log in to your account and give you direct access to your downloads, which adds to the sting of login screens and that frustration, they won't start playing without that internet connection, but hey, you didn't have to login again....!!!!!! Seriously developers of this app, listen to your customers, you need to get off your butts, and update this thing immediately!! I've had it about 3-4 months, no updates yet, and with this many issues there are plenty of things to fix!! I'm hanging in there hoping that they fix this before I just cancel it and stop wasting time, I'm really holding out because I like the content and proposed access that I was sold, and am continuing to pay for.. but if this app isn't straightened out soon, I'm gonna give up and stop wasting money. Fix this thing so your customers can write good reviews and you make more money!! Do I recommend this app? NO, not at all! Will I immediately change my rating and review on the only review I have ever left on an app if they straighten the ridiculousness out, absolutely! And I will recommend it constantly to my friends and family with similar interests.. until then, I hope the developers get at it soon before I give up on it!!
Good content, terrible execution!
By Cobalt Phoenix
I never review anything, but I’m tired of putting up with the issues. I have an iPhone 7plus with 11.2.6 update. First, why is the Sign In button so small and out of the way, but the Create an Account so large and centered? Once I sign up, I feel second class. For $10/month! Second, why is My Favorites hidden in the menus, and why does it always auto populate with shows I haven’t watched or favorited? It should be more prominent on the main screen and actually do its job of saving my couple favorites. Third, every time I try to read an episode description, the screen jumps down and I have to try and find the description again. Fourth, the screen NEVER rotates once I play. I use the physical volume buttons on TOP, because when i try to use the screen volume, the screen darkens out and I miss the part I’m trying to listen to. I have to hold my phone in the orientation I want it to play just to get the screen rotation I want. For $10 a month, I expect much better than this! The content is good, but the player is broken!
I love the content of MOTV, but the fact that they do not release an Apple TV or Fire TV version of this app puts them lightyears behind every other app developer in the world.
Great content, but the player...
Great content but the player doesn’t have a built in 10 or 15 sec rewind, so if you’re watching a How To and want to see something again it’s not as easy as other video apps to go back a small amount. That’s why I’m giving less than 5 stars. Should be an easy programming fix, so I’ll up it to 5 when that’s fixed.
