Playback error

I can’t play anything in my phone. I keep getting a Planck error


the only bad thing is that u can only watch certain shows on ur phone


This app is garbage. Clunky, full of bugs, and difficult to use. Extremely limited. Hilariously bad.

Doesn’t work
Stone Cold 12

Was working and then one day, it just stopped and kept sending to the App Store. Oh well. Deleted!

Sign in error

I had an issue with sign in and I don’t what the error was. Can you fix it now plz? Also, I have not received any updates at all

Could be better

This app loses your spot in the show, it just exit out in the middle of watching anything. Also it freezes it to bad. You can’t watch local channels on game day

No connection
Abra Cadabra!

I’m not big on writing reviews, but this App is aggravating enough to complain. I have the App as well as DIRECTV at home. I have no problem getting into AT&T Direct with my sign in, but they don’t seem to be sufficient for my streaming options. Thanks for nothing!!! L
