It works fine. For those having problems there is a simple fix!
Hire a network professional that does not drive Herbie; or a friend who has the requisite knowledge of the complexities of networking and who is experienced in making sure TCP and UDP packets are being transferred through the WLAN at speeds sufficient enough to handle a high-bandwidth App. (this may require the purchase of a simultaneous dual band router, capable of transmitting large amounts of data much quicker than your cable modem). He or she will adjust your QoS settings, change the factory-default settings that leaves your network vulnerable to interference from nearby networks and also vulnerable to unsavory characters who might join your open network and borrow your personal and financial information. Seriously. The App works great, and what a picture! You think maybe that is why so many of us rate it so highly? Hmm. Your iOS device, your iPad, iPhone works fine and can play video that delivers the highest quality based on your available bandwidth.. Hmm. Yet, when a high bandwidth App which displays minimally buffered high quality video, your device can't deal with it. Hmm. What does that leave? A. A mean company that is out to deprive a select few of you the excellent quality of high-bandwidth streaming broadcast quality video? Possibly, but it's not Bright House (and it does border on paranoia, don't you think?). B. A Network that is not been optimized to push pixels fast enough is causing the App to indicate to you truthfully that the program is not available? Years ago, Apple had a motto, "Think different." Poor grammar, but the campaign was quite effective. Perhaps their new motto should be simplified to just, "Think," Why does that sound so darned logical? I would hate to see Bright House assuage those who can't figure this out. Bright House may reduce the quality of their video, so those with marginal networks can finally watch their shows on their iPad and then complain,"The picture quality is terrible!" Seriously, I doubt Bright House would do that. The picture quality is incredible; especially on a Retina display! Those of us with properly configured routers who: 1. Don't suffer from our own and multiple neighboring homes or apartments with routers all set to out-of-the-box factory-defaults, not only causing network interference and signal degradation, but leaving their ENTIRE NETWORK VULNERABLE to Identity Thieves and provide free Internet service to their neighbors without. 2. Do have simultaneous dual band routers in addition to our high-speed modems 3 Do understand the 802.11 a/b/g/n protocols and know how to adjust their QoS settings to maximize and prioritize bandwidth delivered to HD streaming video. Look, some people were fortunate enough to win the lottery and get an installer with a background in Network Routing and not Games. More than a few have the knowledge based on their occupations when they configured their routers. Some spent hours studying the manuals, researching the hundred or so different router settings on the Internet. And you know what? Some were just lucky and have yet to experience any problems.
