App Reviews

  • Simpsons World has been HEAVILY downgraded

    By FireworksOverTheFreeway
    The FX Now app used to be my go-to app on Apple TV, primarily to watch The Simpsons. With the latest update, while the app looks sleek and very “Internet 3.0,” The Simpsons World section has been rendered unusable. I can no longer watch episodes in original 4:3 ratio, nor can I choose to listen to audio commentary without leaving an episode I’m watching and going back into the Extras menu; and scrolling through various different “themed” episode blocks as well as single episodes is cumbersome and generally slow. The BIGGEST misstep of this update is that the developers have completely gotten rid of Simpsons TV, which was the single best feature of FX Now app ver 1.1. I used to be able to just throw on a Simpsons TV channel and just watch for hours, now I have to press the random episode button (which is not great considering the amount of episodes) or watch the aforementioned themed episode blocks which do not auto play to the next episode when one is finished. The app itself works *okay*, it’s just the complete stripping of all that made the app actually good is what makes it difficult to use. I have resorted to just using the Simpsons World website through my internet browser to watch episodes now.
  • Would have given 4 stars but...

    By BobbyP311
    All the same issues everyone else has had also transcends into my iPhone 7 IOS 11.2 I think. You guys need just a major overhaul and strengthening of that. Consistent updates like others with less money than your company but has 10 times more updates and it’s not always bug fixes they always in pain something new. I know TV can only go so far but it’s the user experience and accessibility that invites The viewers or new viewers to your network. In today’s society were all social network heads, luckily I have it fell victim to that yet..But it’s not from a lack of trying or usage of I just choose not to continue every day. I’m going off topic LOL all we ask is that you continue to make FX now what we want it to be and what you know and can be. It’s not rocket science it’s an app. There are millions and if keeping up with the competition or at least making the bare minimum work then it’s best that you not offer it because it might as well be false advertising. I say that with tremendous sincerity because I love FX. Thank you
  • Works well, but issues with Simpsons UPDATE: App is Worse

    By Mae434
    UPDATE: This app has gotten worse. While I was in the middle of watching “The Americans” the screen got smaller, basically confined to the top 1/3 of my iPad. I closed the app and upon reopening it, it was requiring me to create an FX account or sign-in with my Facebook account. I’m so sick of having to constantly log-in with my cable provider on this app and now they are adding a new log-in?! Now my only option was to watch that episode of “The Americans” from the beginning. I started to, but the screen was still small so I gave up. This is such garbage. The only time I have had problems with this app is when I watch The Simpsons. It will regularly pop-up with a loading error notice so I cannot watch a particular episode. Sometimes if I go back a few screens, the issue will resolve itself. However, I have been unable to watch episodes from Season 2 for over a week. I have been trying to watch episode 5 or 6 but it will not work. Seems like the same problem with other Season 2 episodes.
  • Reauthentication for every sign in

    By Benson1345543345
    Updated: do not appear to have the same constant re-authentication issue, so I am updating my rating. Love the reduced commercials compared to earlier versions. I do enjoy this app and appreciate the reduced commercials in Simpsons world, but my review reflects the re-authentication requirements for the cable provider almost every time I jump out of the app. I’d say after every 10 minutes or so if I haven’t been in the app, my login expires and I need a new token (by entering my cable login) to watch again. I do not recall this being an issue in earlier versions, if I remember correctly it took a few days for the login info to expire. Is this an intentional change? If so, it is annoying to have to log out and log back in every time I want to use the app. I’ll update the review if this behavior is changed.
  • Small Picture when sent to the TV from the phone app.

    By J. Freedman
    I don’t normally do reviews, but when one feels like he’s been left hanging on a technical support issue; then one feels like a review is needed. I contacted the support team with an issue. When sending the picture from my phone app to my Sony Bravia OLED tv; the screen is stretched from the top left of the screen to the middle. Because of this, the picture is small and it’s annoying when watching anything this way. I was asked to answer some follow up questions and waited for a response. I never receive another response. I emailed off my sent email and still didn’t receive an answer. I even asked was my case still opened and they couldn’t even answer that. This is the worst support team I have ever dealt with. Its sad that a support team cannot even answer a simple question. It’s irresponsible to leave a customer hanging. I hope some teaching lessons come from this review and that the issue to which not only I’m having, but someone else is having, gets resolved.
  • Pretty, but serious issues with video playback

    By swanlobr
    The Good — The application’s user interface is pretty... nicely balanced, full immersion in program poster art. The reduced commercials is a nice touch. The Bad — (1) The first time I tried to play an episode of The Americans, it would play for a few seconds, but once the onscreen controls disappeared, so would the video. The audio would keep playing and I could bring back the controls/video by taping in the screen. Obviously not going to work for the duration of a 40-something minute show. (2) I tried watching The Americans again and got video to play! I didn’t do anything special, it just worked. But got distracted part way through an episode. When I returned to the app, it didn’t have a resume option... I had to manually use the scrubber and suffer commercials to find where I’d left off. (3) There’s no download option. Please, please, please give us the ability to download your own shows. Watching offline is essential for commuting or travel. Alternatives — Netflix can get old seasons of The Americans and they can be downloaded. Shows can be downloaded and it remembers where you left off. Xfinity Stream (my cable provider’s app) has the same videos that FXNOW has, but with flawless video playback, it remembers where you left off, and it has other shows (saved recordings, live TV, on demand) Still no ability to download theses shows (so maybe a content distribution/rights thing, so sad).
  • It looks pretty but the content is erratic and sparse

    By Spanishblueeyes
    I wanted to start off and say I enjoy how all of the networks are starting to be in one app. I feel this app is still under development compared to the older stand alone apps such as fox, fx, and nat geo for examples. The way you search or browse for your favorite show seems to be out on order not only here on this iPhone app but also on the Apple TV app as well. The incomplete seasons or series is also a downside for this app as it stands today. Unclear if they are going to be added or just left out for some reason. Other apps have every season up until the current season. Binge watching would be great with some of these Fox shows. Another issue I have is when I am trying to play a show or movie from where I left off I need to crash the app because it becomes unresponsive. It happens more if I pause on an ad and then resume playing. Sometimes I even have to go to the extreme and delete the app completely and reinstall to get the function back in the app. I do enjoy the idea of the app but the execution is poor. Also the lag between the CC and what is actually being said is very distracting if I am trying to watch something on low or no volume. I hope that this changes because I see the potential with this consolidation but currently I can’t tell my friends and family to go out and enjoy the app.
  • Chrome cast issues

    By Lizcejja
    I’m not one to write reviews but this app makes it very difficult to watch any shows on chrome cast. We have three different TVs, one with cable, one with Apple TV, and one with chrome cast. When my husband is watching his show live through cable, I tend to go to another room to watch but when I’m trying to watch through the chrome cast I waste time logging out of my provider and re logging it. If I don’t it’ll tell me that my access has been denied. It’s just such a hassle. Watching live so far hasn’t been an issue once I’ve re logged in but when trying to watch a show, I come across the issue of having to continue going back and starting an episode where instead of it continuing on as it would do so on the Apple TV. I’ve gotten so frustrated that I rather not even bother using the app......
  • Audio and freezing

    By Le panda.
    1. If my phone’s screen turns to fit whatever way I’m holding it, the audio will cut out and not be replace until I shut down the whole app. The video still plays perfectly, but I can no longer hear anything. 2. Sometimes I’ll attempt to go back into things that I’ve watched before. Well, the screen with broadcast the large FX sign and cut to black.... and then that’s it. You can’t exit out of the screen. There’s not buttons to push play or anything. Exiting the app is the only way to fix it.. and that doesn’t mean it fixes me being able to watch the video. It’ll usually just fix it so I can select something else to view. Otherwise, I overall really like the app. I just have those two complaints.
  • Parental Control Problems

    By WishingForHelpFast
    When I sign in with my cable provider and try to watch American Crime Story a message appears saying “Access to this content is restricted as a result of your parental control settings. To view this content, please confirm settings with your TV provider and/or your Apple TV device.” It says this when I try to watch on Apple TV, iPad, or iPhone and when I try to log in on the website on my Mac with my TV provider it doesn’t log it and just cycles back to the 1 hour free trial. All those devices have no parental controls set. When I checked my parental controls with my cable provider Suddenlink, there were no restrictions and the maximum content rating available was TV-MA which I had it set to. When contacted my TV provider Suddenlink and they had no way to fix this. I contacted FX through their website and have had no response and I can not find any other way of contact. Please respond, thank you.
