I have not experienced any difficulties with streaming or access, ever. And I never will.

Matthew ChuckranWed, Feb 1, 2023

5 stars for the selection of films. The app is functional. No technical glitches so far. Still they have to improve the service especially with better sound quality and 4K capabilities.

The best movie app ever. Period.
