I love showtime and I love the choice of entertainment on showtime (Particularly Desus & Mero. However, I’m trying to rewatch episodes on my phone and I can’t. Since the show is at the very end of its duration and there’s no “Play episode from beginning” button it only plays the last few seconds of the episode and brings me back to the previous screen. Very frustrating because there’s literally nothing I can do to rewatch the Desus and Mero episodes. Besides that this app and showtime is perfect.
I’ve subscribed to Showtime in the past to watch a few shows and then leave. I like some of the series, “The Loudest Voice” was good and I’m looking forward to starting the Kirsten Dunst series. Some of the documentaries are interesting but you need a better movie selection. “City on a Hill” is probably a good series but I couldn’t get past the profanity and racial slurs and stopped watching in the first 5 minutes of episode 1, I don’t know why it isn’t possible to tell a story without every other word being a curse word. Cops probably do speak like that in Boston, but to me it was excessive. The Roku app is a little confusing, especially the fast forward and rewind, and I’d like to see some “for you” recommendations similar to what the other streaming apps use. The live TV feed is a nice feature. However, I have trouble justifying the $11 a month membership over time because the selection is too limited. The streaming quality is good, and I’ve never experienced any buffering or technical problems.
I was very excited to get showtime as I love so many of their shows, but the app has been a major let down. Offline playback is nearly impossible. The app crashes after less than 10 minutes of playback, every time. About 50% of the time the player won’t rotate. I’m shocked this app has such a high rating with such a bad video player. As a new user I’ve found the design confusing. It took me a week to find where my currently watching shows are. Why aren’t they on the front page of the app? Why isn’t there a “pick up where you left off” on the series page? Two stars only because playback when connected to WiFi works okay.
App keeps crashing when I try to watch downloaded content. I was able to watch 1 movie all the way through with no issues. But when I tried to rewatch it, I think it kept crashing at the same time intervals. When I first watched the movie, I left when the credits started. When I came back to watch it again, I started over by dragging the bar to the left. I think the time originally remaining on the credits keeps interfering with watching any new content. The same movie or other movies, the problem keeps happening. After several minutes (the time remaining on credits) I’ll lose audio or the video will perpetually buffer.
Suddenly experiencing an issue with a bug in the system where the “Showtime Ready-To-Cast” logo remains visible on the screen once the program begins to play. Further examination of my iPhone screen reveals that while this unusual bug occurs, the program timer displays only a few minutes of time remaining. Yet, when the red line reaches the end, the movie and/or program continues. I have reset my iPhone, removed and reinstalled the Showtime app while clearing the history snd data of the iPhone as well but to no avail...the issue remains as described above. It’s ridiculous. I only rated the app a 1 because there is no “zero” or “minus” rating.
