    The name is misleading. I'm sure i used to watch live tv on it, but now I can't even do that. 😞

    Great looking and UI is flawless, however some lagging between speech & video. Does have a tendency to crash every 5 mins but I suspect that's more to do with Lumia capabilities? Gives a warning when Wi-Fi is not connected so user doesn't eat away data allowances unknowingly. Could do with as many channels as computer version, but that's just a suggestion. Wish my 630 mem could handle the stream, but not tvcatchup's fault. Thanks for even bothering to make a WP app, so many developers don't.

    Good app but the only bad thing is it doesn't have every channel 🙅

    Used to be a good app. However know it will play a channel for about a minute then you get the "cannot play this video; retry" error. You reboot the app for this to happen again and again. Shame to see a good app just fall by the wayside.
