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?

WORST APP EVER

Just downloaded the app and when I click on it, it fails to start. Get the splash screen and then... poof goes away. Wish I could rate ZERO STARS.

Inconsistent

Great when it works, but its buffering is a problem...slow to get to full strength, screen freezes (but audio continues), and/or it just stops. When the symptoms occur during the commercials, it is tolerable, but during key points of the show, it is frustrating to say the least.

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.

Incomplete episodes ARE GREAT

What good is a series if you cannot view the latest season starting with Episode 1? No good.

Buggy

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

same as the website, it doesn't work

no matter the device it constantly freezes up during commercials so that you can not completely watch a show, the same thing with the website, their commercials eat up way too much ram and or processor to be able to continue :/ , have tried with multiple android & Microsoft products none work

Pause delay and lag

It has syfy channels great selection but embarrassing amount of crashing, even during the 3 repetitive commercials. Rarely can I get through an episode without a forced restart.
