Used to work and stopped

It used to work for me I could watch anything anytime it was great then about two weeks ago it stopped working and everyday I go to check it will load like it works and not play my shows. Too many "errors" it keeps having and this isn't the first time either. I uninstalled and installed again and still no luck. Sick of this app.

Can't be Used

This app is unusable. The store thinks it's installled, but just when you go to open it, the app is shaded out and says that "The app can't OPEN" and to go to the store to find out info. Then, the store says "This app encountered a problem. Please reinstall it to repair." Which only ends in an endless cycle of attempting to reinstall a broken app. Reporting this app to Microsoft. Syfy Now is acting the same exact way.

Video stops constantly

Video will constantly stop working and say unable to play video. DO NOT download for surface 3. Horrible app. What's the point of asking for your favorite shows when it doesn't even populate the main screen with them. You'll understand that after you download it (though you should still not download this app)

Love it, but a major issue has come up (and been up):

The front page of the app no longer correctly renders. I get "TypeError: Unable to set property 'panelType' of undefined or null reference" followed by the break points where the error occurs. I can still search for shows using the search box and watch them normally (except for the absence of advertisements, which I'm sure was not by design). If someone from the FOX app team were to get in touch with me, I could share the entire text of the error. I'm not a programmer by any means, but it seems like it's just a compatibility issue with Windows 10, the latest versions since the November (1511) update, since that is around when this started and I have been able to use the website to watch the content since then, but I'd like to be able to get into the content more quickly. As an aside, I'm using the Desktop version of Windows 10, and have not seen an instance of this error in other apps.

Used to Work

It used to work fine, now not so much. I continually get a connection error which is the same as several other reviews I've read. Tells me I have no connection when I do. Have tried on both a pc and an xbox one. I truly wish companies would stop "fixing" things which were not broken... Update: AS of 13Mar16 still does NOT work. As SO glad that my Windows 10 pc is worthy of having an app from Fox that works. (Yep, sarcasm in lieu of the "other" language currently coursing through my brain)

I can't download the app to my Windows Tablet.

I was enjoying this app it has a clean layout and is easy to use. Until recently it was working great when it suddenly started acting up. So, I uninstalled it. Now, I can't re-download it, I get an error message every time I try.

Works Again

The crash has been fixed and the app is once again a great way to watch Fox shows on demand -- especially on busy TV nights when the DVR is overloaded.

Won't let me watch anything

I really loved this app but it doesn't let me watch anything anymore. It keeps sending me an error message.
