The person who made this app gave that five star review 1/5
And won’t let me search anything or find anything I like it stupid that’s why I give it a one star
Loved the first three knew I would love four!💪🏾
Unusable with smart tv AirPlay 1/5
Skipping back and forth to ad breaks when trying to resume a movie, or when airplayed to TV. Caught in loop.
Verifying with TV Provider - Broken 1/5
By Muffin McDanger
The verifying screen goes in an endless loop when trying to login with tv provider. Deleted and reinstalled the app - issue doesn’t go away
App is terrible 1/5
App does not work well at all. Constantly restarts the show in the middle of it, then makes you watch 4 minutes of ads to try to get back to where you were. Only for it to mess up again and watch the same ads.
I changed my provider and it won’t let me log in 1/5
It keeps going to the wrong provider page. I’ve spent an hour trying to figure it out. Keep your clumsy app, I don’t want it. Tired of this nonsense.
I’m canceling my subscription 1/5
This app need to be fix ASAP if i pay for the server i should be Apple to hook my phone up to any tv and it should play ... why pay for one thing u only limited to watch on yo phone or iPad
Authentication Error 1/5
Obviously this is just a terrible app.
Commercials with a sprinkle of shows 1/5
I’ve never seen so many commercials in a streaming app before. I am using my Fios account and understand a pre or post roll but if I watch Archer for 20 minutes, I am forced to sit through 3-4 commercials every couple of minutes. Sometimes it’s so long I can get up, do something else and come back just in time to catch the next few minutes of my show. It’s really a terrible system especially because they have very few sponsors and you end up seeing the same thing over and over again just to make matters worse. It’s easier to just DVR what you want and skip the commercials and this app all together.
Is this even a real app? 1/5
It messed up a couple times when I tried to pair it with YouTube TV. Doesn’t play Archer, just errors out. What an absolute dumpster fire piece of garbage.
I can’t mirror my phone? 1/5
Why can’t I use mirroring to watch anything?
No PiP on iPhone and missing most episodes of IASIP 1/5
Title says it all
Response to dev: Most episodes of IASIP are missing - even the old ones.
Some hits. Some misses 3/5
By Joe. Faz
For every The Shield, Archer, and Legion fox still makes some horrible shows. The signing in and amount of commercials is highly annoying.
The League 1/5
How in Gods name do you not have The League......THE LEAGUE!?!?!? This is an absolute crime...... One Star until this blasphemy is fixed.....
Bugs and Glitches 1/5
Every time I use the app and I’m watching a show on FX West somehow it takes me back to watching whatever’s on the original FX channel by itself. This happens when I’m casting from the app to my TV and it happens more than once during each viewing. It also stops casting on its own then will start playing randomly while my phone is locked. I have then kill the app to get it from playing.
Update: this app is still trash!! It’s a different problem this time!! Smh
terrible user interface 1/5
Very dissatisfied with this ipad app when trying to connect my ipad directly to a larger monitor to watch a show. It locks up the screen and says there is some sort of DCM error.
Really? I am in the FXNow app itself and it says there is a digital copyright error so it wont play the movie on a larger screen?
That is so pathetic on many levels especially when my other network apps like Peacock and TNT work perfectly when connecting my ipad to larger monitor. The older versions of the app used to work fine prior to being sold to Disney.
Why is your tech support so awful for an app that has such great possibilities?
Please get it right and let me know when you do and then maybe I will be a fan again.
This App is Trash 1/5
I have this App on my phone and Roku and I downloaded it so I could watch the show Snowfall. I was excited to begin watch the show and all it shows are clips of the show. This is a disappointment. The terrible thing is it doesn’t show you how to watch the full episodes. Waste of a download.
Ughhh gen Z 1/5
At first it kinda worked but I hate is now doesn’t work at all it drains my battery life so quick don’t get it and but a ⭐️
Sad all the movies on this app here u need FXM which I don’t have
FX shouldn’t have an app if this is the result. 1/5
What’s the point of having an app if you can’t view a show’s entire catalog? It’s not rocket science to figure out this is how you build an audience for new seasons of your shows.
The copy and paste developer responses are comical. They don’t address the user’s concern at all.
Waste of phone space! 1/5
So I downloaded the app, made an account then signed in with my TV provider. I searched for AHS to catch up on the last season. I was able to find it but there were only clips. So I went to check out Mr Inbetween and again only clips. Ok! Let’s see what The most dangerous animals of all is all about. YUP! Only clips. So now I’m just clicking on different shows and only seeing clips and not one single episode. What’s the deal? I don’t get it! Where in the heck are all the full episodes at?!?!?
I like FXNOW 5/5
I like FXX
Really good! But... 5/5
This app is really good but why did you take out “The greatest showman”?!!
Other than that,it’s a amazing app.
The best TV app out there! 5/5
•Most ads I’ve gotten were 4 ads.
•Great movies, such as Spider-Man: Homecoming or Sing.
•Live TV function that is awesome!
•User-Friendly interface that is really good!
•Some glitches, mostly in the live TV mode.
•No Central Intelligence (2016)
•Not many The Simpsons episodes.
Great Streaming App, but one problem 1/5
Overall, FX provides a wide range of intriguing shows and programmes. However, it seems that for each one there’s only one season available when there are clearly more to each programme. For example, an FX made product(Archer) has 11 seasons, but I’m only allowed to view season 6. Could this be changed so that viewers can watch every season of every series? Or is there a legal prohibition?
I am trying to log in to my tv provider but it keeps not working my provider is xfinity😀
Can’t sign in with other tv providers? 4/5
By Li Elefante
I’ve recently switched from fios to xfinity. I still have FXNow as a channel, but it won’t let me sign into my xfinity account. Every time I try to log in it shows the Verizon fios login page. I press the “not a Verizon customer” button, and it redirects me to a sign up for Verizon. Other than that, the app worked quite well for me. There are a good amount of movie and show choices, and the app itself is easy to use.
Worst streaming app 1/5
Never have I had more issues with a streaming app than with FXNOW. It constantly crashes on both my iPad and my Apple TV, I have yet to get through a single movie without a crash. Once it’s down, it never gets back up. I’ve spent hours restarting the app, devices, and my router never to have it work again. Even the website won’t stream about 90% of the time. I love the content on FX, but none of their programs allow me to watch it so this is absolutely a one star review. I do not recommend bothering with them unless you want a spike in blood pressure. Highly disappointed.
Buggy and defective 1/5
App normally has issues when trying to watch shows and movies. Most of my experiences have resulted in app errors when trying to stream, having to close the app and rewatching ads multiple times until you get tired of trying and having to find an alternative platform to use. I hardly use the app because of how rarely it works properly. It’s a never ending circle of disappointment every time I see something I like on FX Now.
WORST APP EVER! 1/5
By M.S Ca
This app is trash! Can’t get any episodes of advertised shows I.e. TABOO, SNOWFALL, ZODIAC etc etc etc NOTHING! I pay for the FX channel through my cable provider yet can’t access any of the material! Only gives you 29 second clips!!! It’s all fake fillers for the site. I’m completely logged in yet can’t get full episodes of 90% of shows advertised! AND I CANT RECORD THE SHOWS BECAUSE IM AT WORK AND AT&T TOOK AWAY THE FEATURE TO LOOK AHEAD AND SCHEDULE FUTURE SHOW TIMES!! Shame on you FX I’ll be downgrading cable to exclude your channel and probably get rid of cable all together. This is why so many people are CUTTING THE CORD!
Horrible App 1/5
I used to be able to watch shows and movies using the on my iPad with projector. Now for some reason the app will show ads only and screen blacks out with only audio when the movie or show starts. App deleted.
Not compatible 2/5
Very stressful while using this app, can watch on my phone just fine, but when I plug in my lightning to hdmi to mirror to my tv, video completely cuts out. Continues to play audio and video only on the phone. Please fix
Whoops! Ya broke it, dummy... 2/5
After this last update, neither the FX app nor the NatGeo app work; either on my phone or on my AppleTV.
May I suggest a roll-back and a review of your coding, gentlemen?
(Ahh, the joys of “Agile” development... IT’s worst idea in 100 years...)
Take the home bar from buttonless phones! 4/5
I like the app but please make the home bar disappear on phones that don’t have home buttons! It’s annoying seeing the white bar down there while I’m watching a show!
Worst signal ever 1/5
Garbage keeps breaking up
Won’t load 1/5
By izzy bloodrose
I have been trying for a week to watch the maze runner and every time I try it has some sort of Failure. Can you guys get your stuff together please? This is ridiculous
Can’t log in 1/5
By Morgan Man
Can’t log in to tv provider account. Just says failed to authN. each time
Why allow live tv? 1/5
There should be an option to make it just a streaming platform instead of allowing it to stream live tv as well. It barely ever is able to start anything and gets bad video quality. Doesn’t matter whether I’m on WiFi or using my network connection which makes me think the app is just working to hard.
Error 029-1216-000 AuthN AuthenticationFailure 1/5
FX app has always been glitchy and troublesome; however, we’ve always been able to find a work around to make it work. Until the last week or so. Now I’m getting this error 029-1216-000 and nothing works. It won’t connect to tv provider (Directv) I sign in my fx account and can’t link my provider. I sign out of my account and try and link to provider w/o signing in my fx account and still nothing. Love the programming but you guys really need to get your app fixed. Maintain it and stay current on bug fixes etc. and if that’s too much of a hassle - pull the app. Cause all having it “available” in the App Store does is create endless frustration when your users can’t access it despite being “available.” This is REALLY not the time to drop the ball considering everyone is home and trying to use the services that they ALREADY pay for but can’t. It’s a shame cause you guys could really use this quarantine situation as an opportunity to grow your customer base and be a shining star through some of the darkness, but instead you’re crashing and burning. I’m so frustrated that, despite my love of the shows on the network, I might stop watching all together because of this nonsense. Get it together or pull the app until you decide to get it together.
Doesn’t stream video through HDMI connector 3/5
The app works great on my iPhone 11 Pro, but when I try to mirror it to my tv using Apple’s media interface with an HDMI cable it doesn’t work properly. I can see the menus and hear audio, but when I try to live stream a channel the video gets frozen. I can hear the audio through my TVs speakers but the video is stuck on the buffering screen, while the video plays on my phone’s screen.
Worst streaming app, literally of them all, the worst 1/5
What. On earth. Is wrong with this network?!?!? I pay for a cable TV service, doesn’t matter, I pay for the app on its own, doesn’t matter. Literally nothing allows this garbage app to work. It’s so frustrating that I have to pay for a service that never works ever. Any Fox network. FX, Fox, fox sports, nothing ever works. Please, please, please, for the love of god, do not ever pay for this network, it’s awful and will never play. Please do not waste any more money that I already have.
I just had to add, after reading so many negative reviews, that fox seems to have “fix it” sited and a list of steps that they ask every poor review to try. News Flash, none of that works, and it’s all false. Just like a fox network tp provide false hope.. garbage network..
Error 029-1216-000 1/5
I keep getting this error (029-1216-000) with all my devices. I know I have FX on my Direct TV subscription, so I should have access to the content. Please help.
Good stuff 4/5
By The Continental
Looking forward to the new season of Fargo. I just wish they had past seasons on demand.
Best entertainment app 5/5
I must give credit where it is due. After some time of use FX Now def proved itself as an amazing entertainment app. I wish more apps were like this one. It is so easy to use n never gave me a prob. Thank you FX!!
App not loading 4/5
The was working fine and I was using without any issues. The past few days the app won’t load, it gets struck loading, I deleted the app and downloaded it again. It didn’t seem to fix the issue either.
Thanks for getting back, The App issue is resolved and it working great as it did.
Doesn’t let you research the movies that you want to watch 1/5
So when I wanted to watch fast and furious, I didn’t even pop up. I was very disappointed. This app needs to be updated or something. They have to fix this app-
