CRITICAL DEFECT: Video Won’t Resume; Plays Infinite Ads 1/5
I just tried this app on a single video and it literally cannot be watched. The video stopped at a certain point and threw me out to the ads and then got stuck playing ads, one after the other. I lost count, but it went on so long as I tried to restart the video that I was seeing the same ads multiple times. The video would not resume, no matter if I let the ads run in full or closed them using the big X in the upper left corner. The X just started the next ad. Letting an ad run until it ended also start d the next ad. I could force the app to the splash page, but on Play the video just kicked me back out to the ads again. Logging on and off did not help. It feels like they hard-coded a Kick-out frame where they throw you out to the ads, but failed to implement a counter to limit the number of ads they forced you to watch, and then also failed to advance the video beyond the Kick-out frame so it could resume. When the video tries to resume, it starts on the Kick-out frame and kicks you back out on an infinite loop. But what do I know other than to advise users not to bother with this app. The same video won’t play in a browser on my phone or tablet, but with different symptoms altogether.
Signing in constantly 3/5
Just recently the app makes me sign in a few times a program. Not sure what’s going on
Good subject matters. 4/5
I thoroughly enjoy most of the “True Life” articles. As a retired first responder I love Live PD, and other similar series.
The look back at old court criminal cases offer some different slants. Interesting.
I could certainly live without the other programmes!
All shows 5/5
By dan wendell
The app works great for me. I use it all the time no problem
Why do I have to watch commercials for 3 minutes every 5 minutes? Horrible app and way to watch TV that I already pay for with my service. DELETED
A&E Networks needs to get with it!! 1/5
Why can’t we live stream off the app?!?! I mean it’s sooooo 1999. One star is deserved until we can live stream off the app. It’s grotesque. Other competitive networks can live stream via their apps. So we know it’s possible. If A&E needs help they should reach out to MLB they’ve got it down, by far the best live streaming app with the ability to watch games on mobile device via cellular network in HD @ 60fps!!!!*
*obviously you need to be in optimum cellular coverage to watch in HD @ 60fps but it’s possible.
Won’t even work now 1/5
I used to watch all the time. Now every time I log in to my tv service and then it comes up with an error. I have another login for a different tv provider and still gives me an error. I watch on my iPad, iPhone and Apple TV, it will work on none of them.
Old shows 2/5
Old shows should be free. Only lock current seasons.
Logging in to service provider 3/5
Why do I have log into my service provider so many times. It’s ridiculous, that I have to log in multiple times while watching the same episode. It looks like you fixed the glitch that allowed the next episode to play audio with no video, when you did press play they played over each other. The app is getting better.
By trucker 044
It would be much better if they cut out the ads or you could skip them.
More ads play then the show does 1/5
Wow, Ive seen apps play 1 or two ads for commercial breaks but A&E takes the cake.
Its a spam of freaking 8-12 REPEATED commercials every 5 minutes.
Im going to unlist them from my cable provider and never use this app again either. HELLO TORRENT WORLD.
The app is great but! 5/5
I would like the app even more if there was live streaming as well!.. for example today I’m traveling and would like to watch an episode that premieres at 8 pm I’m currently in the airport! How do I watch it then!
Please Fix 3/5
Don’t get me wrong, this app is great, but not all the time. Right now none of the episodes are showing up and I can’t watch anything. This app seems to glitch a lot and it may just be a bug that needs fixed.
Won’t work all locked 1/5
This app is the worst , no matter what I do it won’t play any shows , they are all locked and I have Cox cable . Please don’t waste your time
Commercials not evenly spaced out 2/5
More commercials on this app than viewing time.
Too much “sign in” 2/5
Having to sign in for every episode is VERY frustrating
Too many ads 2/5
It seems there is more ads watching on the app then on commercial TV.
Good shows, LOUSY ads 1/5
By Ky papaw
I don’t mind having commercials, but the commercials’ volume is set much louder than the shows. There is one for a resort in Mexico that about blasts my ears out every time it comes on. This issue is bad enough for me that I no longer watch the shows.
Only commercials 1/5
I started an episode of a show and when I went to resume the episode it showed only commercials. I sat thru 4 commercials and the show wouldn’t start and a 5th commercial started to play. I closed and restarted the app and again 5 commercials played. I refused to sit thru any more ads. I wasted my 15 minute break on ads. I pay for A&E thru Dish network and expect to be able to access content on demand thru the app. Fix this please. I shouldn’t have to watch all these ads especially for a service I already pay for. Disappointed.
I love this app 5/5
Of course, as with any app, this has a couple imperfections that could benefit from some minor improvements. I have notice that most “technical” issues are due to my internet service and have nothing to do with the app. My biggest “issue” is the redundancy of the interactive ads. I don’t mind the ads as a whole. However, as a consumer, a wider variation would make the ads more bearable and interesting. Despite this very minor “issue”, I find the app very easy to use and navigate through. The episodes for all of my favorite A&E shows are always kept up-to-date. Quite frankly, this app in particular, has almost completely eliminated my need for television. The majority of my favorite shows are on A&E and having this app is a major benefit.
Holy crap! Not enjoyable to watch on here at all with all of the ads. I’d rather just watch regular tv or Netflix. They are just nonstop.
Full Screen? 3/5
By Dissapointed Customer #18
I can deal with the ads, but the video isn’t going full screen. Is anyone else having this issue?
ANIMAL CRUELTY ADS!!!!!!!!! BEWARE!!!!! 1/5
I refuse to watch an app that starts out with the animal cruelty ads!!!! I usually turn the channel when they come on. These people are just out to steal your money. They do NOTHING to help animals!!!!!
Too many ads 3/5
By Singer for HIM
I love all the shows that are on the app, but there are too many adds in every episode.
Too many ads 1/5
Technically I’m paying to watch these shows through my data plan. There shouldn’t be ANY commercials at all. Isn’t it bad enough we have to sit through these things on regular tv? This would be a great app if it wasn’t for all of the commercials
Luv it! 5/5
It’s a great app and have not had any issues since I began using it 3 months ago.
Worst Apple TV App 1/5
So glitchy...it’s always going back to an earlier point in the program and playing random commercials at random points. Also frequently doesn’t save the correct spot in the program. Haven’t had this problem with any other tv apps.
Very Superstitious 5/5
By Lola Katz
Fantastic show! I was expecting a light-hearted and humorous look at the subject but George Lopez showed so much more about it and about himself than I had ever seen. He treated the people and their practices with respect and an open mind. I have already watched the first season twice and recommended it to my friends and family. This kind of show will help to promote understanding especially with the background information from all sides. I sincerely hope there's more to come!
Why So Many Missing Episodes??? 4/5
In my opinion this would definitely be a 5 Star app if it wasn’t for so many missing episodes in the programs I watch.
BOOO 👎👎 1/5
First of all, we have to unlock the episodes and this isn’t a game and we also have to sign in to out tv provider and we have to buy it? I thought this was an app that can let you watch tv shows on a&e for free, and don’t let me get started on the ads, this should be called “The Ad App” due to it repeating ads and so much ads and if I want to fast forward just a tiny bit I have to watch some stupid ad that repeats for like a billion years. Fix this and I’ll edit my review
Great Shows! 5/5
Always a good source of entertainment and programming. I have learned a lot! Keep up the good work!
Overall ok 2/5
One complaint why do I get notifications saying there’s a new Live PD to be watched(via the app) to only have last weeks there? My app is up to date.
It used to be Friday’s episode up on Saturday and Saturday’s episode up on Sunday.
Like tonight we should have Friday’s episode up to view, but latest one is 4/21.
So why are we missing out on episodes? This problem only started happening that I can recall this season. Not everyone can make it home in time to watch, that’s why we or at least I have the app, to make it easier to watch our favorite show(s)! I don’t watch anything else on the here. Please fix this!
What a joke 1/5
Have the app on IOS devices. Added it to my Apple TV. Signed like 15 times. Keep getting no authorization etc. showed signed in on my provider and on a&e with registered profile. Won't work. What crap
All my others apps work just fine
Would like to be able to view this in full screen mode.
By J G Brennan
Glitchy ads make this app worthless. It’s amazing how so many channels can get the app right and this one is so bad
Can’t watch nothing 1/5
It won’t let me sign in using my cable company so I can’t watch anything.. how long until this is fixed ? I can use any other app
Why are their ads when signed in with a television provider. And secondly the served ads have delayed audio or simply don’t stream properly at all.
Worse app ever 1/5
Too many ads, not all episodes in each season which it’s stupid since they own the rights of their shows. Plus I have to sign in to my TV provider after 2 or 3 episodes in a row. Fix it or remove app and go to either Netflix or Hulu!!!!!!!!
By CHRIS'S IPAD2
I believe since A&E has added Marcia’s new program and Grace
versus Adams, I have found myself watching A&E more than I ever have. I hope they continue to bring more interesting programming.
More Ads Than Content 1/5
By Quarter Bend
I sat thru literally 10 ads waiting for my show to start. At the 11th I gave up and wrote this review instead.
Works sometimes 3/5
By a&e app user
Nice app but at times the sound disappears. This app needs to be updated more often to fix the bugs
Glitchy and no Live TV option 2/5
I like programing on A&E. However, I wish there was a Live TV option. I travel a lot by train for work, and on the weekends when I travel home I would love to watch Live PD while it's actually live. The app crashes and freezes more than 50% of the time for me.
Long Ads every 5 minutes 1/5
It’s just awful- you can’t watch 5 minutes of a show without 10 minutes of commercials coming after!
Too many ads 2/5
Someone else mentioned this also. You try to rewind and instead it goes back to a commercial. And the commercial volume is really loud! I also believe that when a show goes on hiatus - like the First 48 - they should at least let us know that.
Easy to use 4/5
I find this one easy to use to stream shows (unlike some of the other channel apps that make things hard to find). It would be even better the commercials were shorter or allowed skipping at some point. Commercials were local, which is a little more relevant. Repetitive, though.
10 ads every 5 minutes... 1/5
By cg tulsa
No other app has this many advertisements during programming. One, maybe two... But seriously 10? Calm yourself!
Not happy 1/5
By Loving Monkey Mom
Why all of a sudden do I get the box that pops up saying “Need to Reauthentiate”. I love 60 Days In and now I can’t watch any of the episodes. I find it quite dissatisfying. I’m not happy with the app at all.
It’s ok but ads ads ads!!!! 2/5
I mean don’t get me wrong I love how I can go back and watch old episodes but I swear this app has more ads on episodes than TV and they last forever!!!
Ad filled makes it unpleasant 1/5
As many commercials as live tv. Totally ruins experience, would rather watch lower quality episodes on you tube than sit through this viewing experience ever again.
Ads/automatic log in 👎🏻 2/5
It is nice to be able to watch shows to pass the time at work, unfortunately after every episode (for me) I have to re-log in and unlock the app again. I log in using my cable provider, this particular app will not keep me logged in. And the ads...they are relentless and very very repetitive. These two major issues have made me look into using other apps.
