Whether it’s that after hitting the WATCH button I need to restart the app 90% of the time because it froze or showed an error message, or the download function doesn’t work, or the layout changes dramatically with updates and I have to search for stuff I had already learned, or the image jumps 5 or 6 seconds ahead and I have to rewind throughout a recorded show, or... This is a great idea to have access to my programming and recordings from anywhere.
Nonetheless, I confront issues every single time I use this app. I rate this 3star because I like this idea and it is better than not being able to watch my programs, but from time to time, it get so frustrating that I decide to just close the app and wait until I get home -which defeats the purpose of the app altogether.
I've called and complained, and they say they get lots of complaints about it, but the clear message is they don't give a damn, nor is there a way to choose the time this should happen. With the exception of this one issue, I'm happy with Dish, and have no regrets about dumping Charter 6 months ago. My buddy has Dish and a Hopper and he has complained about this before.
He's been a Dish customer for a long time and said you used to be able to set the update time on the older models.
