Update again 😡🤯 1/5
Will NOT load it’s just to slow 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
Latest app (3.6) does not load. Remove video when app first starts and just use the FXNOW logo. Also, please create an app for Simpson’s only or allow to select the Simpsons on when the app first loads.
The app won’t load 1/5
Tried deleting and reinstalling and it still won’t get past the loading screen. Not sure what else to do.
great movies but... 4/5
The app has great titles to watch however, anytime I try something on this particular app, the picture quality is shockingly low and blotchy. Any other movie watching or streaming app works great so it is not my wifi or anything on my end... minor but annoying fix.
FXNOW fix your ish! Again!!!!!!!! 1/5
By Comcerned Concumer
I am very disappointed with fxnow at the moment. I have been using this app without an issue after your support team gave me helpful tips to fix the app. It is simply ridiculous that the SAME thing is happening again. I got kicked out of my provider and when I signed up with it it said I didn’t have any of those channels. I need this app to do better. It has great content but a bad set up.
Verizon fios? 1/5
I hate the new live part of the app. I like how I could see what was coming up later that day.
The Simpsons world was my go to for everyday tv. And now it doesn't shuffle. I have to continue to hit play random episodes. Also the playlist is gone!
Also don't like this profile thing for the movies!
Wish there was auto play 2/5
I mostly go to the app for the Simpsons and set it as random. I cant set it and watch it like I want to do when streaming to a chrome cast from my iPhone.
It working 1/5
When I try to sign in it stays
I’m the page please while we
Access your tv provider. I have deleted and readded three times
Cool App 5/5
Hi, I like the app, I recommend to have auto-play to the next episode of all the shows!
Now you want Money??? 1/5
Literally two weeks ago I went to watch a show on FXNOW boom worked fine. Now when I try to watch it the app says I have to sign up for FXNOW PLUS??? And do now I have to pay $6/month just to get the tv shows I was watching through my Comcast internet subscription.
Hey FX,news alert if you want me to pay monthly how about you included EVERY season of your show not just the newest one? Cause literally nobody wants that. Who wants to go look at a show and say hey The Americans looks good but oh I only get the newest season? Well that makes no sense.
All seasons of your tv shows,more movies and idk be honest about the monthly thing don’t just throw it in there cause you saw it worked with Hulu and Netflix and you just realized you can make an easy buck.
Good job guys..but you’re not Netflix
Demands you create account to resume 2/5
It stores when in the last show you were but without creating a fx networks account it forces you to start from beginning of an episode :(
After the last update, most episodes of the Simpsons will not load. The screen that pops up says that there is an error and to try again later. Your last update has serious issues that need to be fixed.
Only reason to have this app is Watching The Simpsons from the beginning. Love it. The need a simpsons world app
Archaic & Useless APP 1/5
By Starz play
Wish I could give this App less than 1 star. The site constantly closes on its on & makes you start your search or your viewing of an episode or a movie over from the beginning. Unless you give them your email address for incessant contact, they make their site as difficult to navigate as possible. And unlike any other network, they offer no means of contacting them to let them know their service, streaming, and site navigation are below par. Similar to Fox, they see no need to communicate with their customers or weigh their opinions or suggestions. Makes it tough if not impossible to support their product.
Reduced commercials??? 1/5
It says reduced commercials but they are 30 seconds!!!! Only sometimes are the 5 seconds!!!
Paying a cable provider for Fx should mean something 1/5
THe worst of the worst ....." Loading your experience " seriously ? How about dumping the BS and just provide the paid content and skip all your game playing bull SH*t
Parental Control Problems 1/5
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.
Serious issue for kids movies 1/5
We were watching Turbo on the fxnow app and one of the “limited commercials” comes on and it’s for a horror movie that was extreme (ppl in scary masks, ax etc). Well so much for family movie night :(
What happened to Simpson’s World auto play? 1/5
Latest app updates have removed this option on first gen Apple TV.
The best app ever 5/5
This is a great app I can watch movies I never got see and I recommend it.
Almost perfect but... 4/5
Captions are hit or miss because they go through iOS instead of directly from app. Also unable to click on show at bottom of screen when Chromecasting to pull up show being watched.
Hard to Watch 2/5
Unable to enjoy any shows I watch because the streaming stops and takes a while to come back-and it happened every few minutes
This is not on demand, it’s way too demanding
Hulu and Netflix DO NOT have these issues...an unpleasant playback experience that is free is not going to make anyone want to subscribe
App needs to be overhauled 2/5
By antoine rockamura
There’s a lot of lag time, sometimes there isn’t sound and the app forgets my tv subscription every couple of days so I I have to sign in like three times a week
It’s better than it was 5/5
This app was awesome then it kept crashing so I deleted it. I waited a year and a half and downloaded it again and so far so good. I love FXX shows. I’m so glad this app is up and running again!
What a cluster F**** 1/5
This app used to be good before mixing every Fox owned channel into one app... I guarantee that decision was made by a non-millennial smh
Ads keep freezing the app cause me to have to shut it down
This app has so much potential but yet EVERY TIME I attempt to use it, it doesn’t work.
Dope Movie App
By siver smile
A lot of things need to change
Come on into the 21st century 1/5
This is a very poorly designed app. From GUI to ease of use, accessibility, integration with Apple TV app.
The tech exists for this to be better, fix it and come on in to the 21st C
Simpsons World was neutered 2/5
This app used to be great for the Simpsons World alone. Being able to look up episodes by character, phrases, subjects as well as seeing the popularity of certain episodes all in my pocket. It made this app truly a wonderful thing to have.
The Simpsons World is a shell of its former self. I understand streamlining this section so it fits in with the rest of the app (prior to this, it was really 'Simpsonized'), but stripping it of all the amazing features it used to have, especially the search, makes this a really crummy experience. I'm glad i can still play 'every. simpsons. ever.' --- but it used to be a lot more fun when the experience complemented the content.
Please consider restoring the features to the simpsons world.
Way too many commercials 2/5
The amount of commercials for a 20 minute episode of early 1990s Simpsons is a bit ridiculous.
Every Simpsons Episode... 'Nuff Said. 3/5
See above. That is all.
Update 3, 2/11/18: The setup after the latest update is pretty cool. The problems I had with episodes starting in the middle hasn’t happened. I dropped it down a star because the app and Chromecast have troubles. When I finish an episode, it always freezes and has trouble staying connected. It’ll just buffer and buffer until I’m forced to close the app, reopen it, pick my episode, and reconnect. When this happens (which is every time I use it), it doesn’t recognize that I’ve finished an episode. I’ve watched the same three episodes over and over because it says “Continue Watching” on the same one.
More crashes than a Malaysian air line. 1/5
Quit watching a move after the app crashed for the fifth time. What a joke.
Please Change Platform to be more user Friendly! 1/5
The FXNOW app used to very user friendly now you have to scroll down through features on Roku app. I hate it. Also when you watch some shows the menu is still visible at top of screen when watching show (Simpson’s). The layout is terrible.
Useless app now 1/5
Can’t watch the Simpsons anymore because this app is so buggy and doesn’t work. Same with the Apple TV app. Whomever signed off on this update should be fired.
Used to work 5/5
Used to work great. Signed in with my Cox account and watched as much as I want. Now I have to pay.
Edit: Got it to work. Was logged into the Preview Pass by default. Just log out then back in with your service provider.
Can’t even pause play 2/5
This app is the most restrictive of any I’ve used on the Apple TV. You can’t fast forward. You can’t rewind to perhaps hear some dialog that you missed. And most annoyingly you can’t even pause.
I don’t mind watching the commercials within the programs, as I know that’s how they make their money. However, this app makes watching so incredibly annoying that I’d rather watch something else instead of what’s on Fox or FX.
Over designed 1/5
You shot your wad on trying to make it look cool, but lost functionality and usability.
Put it back the way it was.
Log in multiple times 1/5
I have to log in about two times a day but not only on my phone but my iPad and AppleTV. It’s frustrating as hell and needs to be fixed.
Nothing works here, best to just move on
No 4:3? No thanks. 1/5
The app supported 4:3 in the past for older seasons. Curious as to why it was changed as watching older episodes in a distorted format is cringeworthy at best.
As soon as that’s addressed the app would be worth using again.
Many problems 1/5
This app has way to many problems, to the point that it is almost unusable. Every time I want to watch a Simpsons episode, I have to fight with the app for half an hour, and then it still doesn’t work. Here is a list of problems I’ve seen:
1. I find the episode I want, but it just sits and loads, and never actually plays the episode.
2. The app constantly signs me out of my xfinity account.
3. Sometimes it won’t even give me the option to sign back in
4. Sometimes I’ll sign back in but the app freezes on the sign in page. I can hear my show playing in the background, but no visual.
5. It’ll freeze on an ad, the audio will continue but the visual’s don’t change.
I use it on an 80 mbps WiFi, and my iPad Pro. On which both Netflix and other video apps perform perfectly.
Every upgrade lowers quality 1/5
They recently upgraded the app to include Fox shows as well as FX shows and it crashes half the time you use it. I already had the FOX NOW app so they have made both apps perform worse.
I tried to watch The X Files and in 10 minutes I saw 2 minutes of programming and 8 minutes of commercials. Unacceptable. I can put it on my DVR or if live, pause for 15 or 20 minutes so I can fast forward through them. I deleted this app.
An Unknown Error Occurred 2/5
By Say No to CBS app!!!
Keep getting message ‘an unknown error occurred’ while trying to watch one movie (Predators) app works fine for other movies just that one. Removed app, restarted phone and reinstalled app twice same issue. Updated software on an Apple SE. other wise a five star app.
Where is the tile view? 1/5
The Apple TV app has a horrible design. The browse experience is ONE show at a time. Come on show a tile view and feature shows so we know what’s available. This design is impossible to know what FX has.
Reauthentication for every sign in 5/5
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.
Can’t log in with Spectrum-Time Warner Cable 1/5
Every time I try to log on to watch Simpsons on my phone, it asks me to select my TV provider. I have combed the entire list multiple times and TWC-Spectrum is never there. Whenever I click “Don’t see your provider?” and fill out the information, it says my TV provider is supported and to look at the list again. Am I just missing it? I have looked several times and still don’t see it.
