    There is such great content and so many great shows on here. Please fix this. I must see the super collider show and it keeps crashing. Please please please fix this. this would be a great app if so and I would be willing to pay for it.

    ...and the biggest one is streaming playback. Every show, WITHOUT FAIL, that I play will hang about halfway through the playback, and force restarting the stream and jumping forward to the midway point to continue. It's will NOT stream past midpoint if one starts at the beginning. This is the best streaming app put there, hands-down, in test of functionality; but the mid-show breakdown is a deal-b
