Think hard before using

When the program you are watching is streaming (you have to log into your cable provider), it is great. Unfortunately the platform is not stable for some reason and when the commercials come in (and there are a lot of them) the app crashes. Not completely sold on it but since my cable company does not provide Syfy shows on demand, I am stuck with this option. Not thrilled about it.

Gets the job done, allows catch up on Syfy episodes

Great app for catching up on Syfy episodes that are not available elsewhere. There are a few annoying things about this app, however: 1) The screen turns off while ads are playing. My Surface is set to turn off the screen after one minute when running on battery. But the app keeps the screen on while playing a movie, but somehow forgets to do that while playing the ads. 2) When in Tablet Mode, the app does not go full screen (the Window Task Bar is always visible), which is weird. As a workaround, I have to turn off Tablet Mode and then go click on the full screen icon on the app toolbar. 3) When an episode ends, I wish the app had a button to conveniently play the next episode, just like the other major streaming apps do. 4) When signing up for a Cable TV provider, the app provides a very long list of buttons with different providers, in random order. It makes it very difficult to find the right provider. Why not show the list of providers in alphabetical order?

HD Qual Video; Requires High Bandwidth + Adapter Tweaks

Initially had some issues with this app: momentary freezing of video with audio continuing, just freezing + rarely a total crash. However, I was able to rectify these by fine tuning my Wi-Fi adapter advanced settings. While playing a video, I noticed in the task manager network utilization that the app delivers content in very short bursts; about 5 secs & maxes out my download speed of 30 Mbps, falls to 0 Mbps for about 30 secs (because it has cached ahead) then repeats. For a good experience you need a fast conn. (25Mbps+) + optimal settings for your Wi-Fi adapter, esp. for max throughput and bursting. In adv. settings, I changed Throughput Booster = True and HT Mode = VHT. Your setting names may differ. If you have bad range or channel congestion it will also make for a bad exp. Research and tweak your adapter settings if you want to use it without frustration. To prove it could be Wi-Fi settings, try a wired connection if possible or just use it if it solves it. Hope this helps!

Buggy

This app constantly freezes the image while sound continues, jumps the image to catch up, fuzzes out of focus, and crashes... extremely annoying

No additional info provided either, so can't troubleshoot

Requires a TV provider to use

Lame app, you have to have a cable TV provider to use. At least provide a subscription option.

Latest episodes? Sure! Older...nope.

Seems if you want to watch the latest episode of a SyFy show you like, this is the app for you. If you want to catch up on older episodes, or, like me, you find a "new" (to you) show that looks interesting, too bad. Look elsewhere for any but the last-released episode or two.

BARELY DOES ITS JOB, VERY SIMILAR TO THE US SENATE

WHY ARE WE NOT HAVING HEARINGS TO FILL THE VACANCY OF THE SCOTUS? BECAUSE THE SENATE VOWED YEARS AGO THAT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO WORK WITH THIS PRESIDENT. SAD THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS REVERTED TO A 2ND GRADER WHEN THEY DON'T GET THEIR WAY. (SORRY TO ALL 2ND GRADERS. THIS IS AN UNFAIR COMPARISON TO YOU. BUT I THINK EVEN YOU CAN SEE WHY THE COMPARISON MAKES SENSE.)
