    "Netflix needs to resolve the lags on its latest update. Netflix has been good so far but after the update it took longer to load. The interface appears slow. I hope these issues get fixed."

    "I am so happy with this app! Tubi TV is a Netflix substitute but for free. No need to pay the monthly subscription. You'll just have to have the patience for the ads as they come in every so often."

    "Crackle has decent shows to choose from. Ads are fine with me but Crackle keeps on playing the same ad over and over again and this gets so annoying. There should be a variety of ads that should be shown here. Still, four stars for this app because the show collection is amazing."

    "Been experiencing issues in logging in ever since the latest update. Every time I try to play a video, HBO app freezes then crashes later on. This is so terrible. This wasn't how HBO app was before."

    "What a waste of time. The movies are outdated and there are not many good movies in SnagFilms. Apparently not the best site if you want good movies."
