    Would be nice to have more touch screen interface with the guide and such. Overall it works as it should. My guess is most issues would be related to internet speed. Does what it should and saving me a bundle.

    I wish that the Android apps were as good as the iPad app. Same amount of $$

    Works reliably for me when I've needed it. Wish it wasn't so expensive, and wish that for the high cost that the phone and tablet versions were one and the same. I only bought the phone version and have been using it just fine on my Nexus 7, Moto X, and N

    I still watch my old slings with the current app. Some of the new functionality is cumbersome
