I see same low quality problem on certain channels with OnDemand stuff. For instance, if I play Outlander from Starz, looks great, but if I play ANY movie from Starz, looks terrible (and never changes). And not just kinda terrible, but "can't even read the titles" terrible -- it is obviously stuck on the lowest possible resolution stream for some reason. Saw the same thing with a few other channels like MoviePlex. I haven't tested everything -- most stuff is fine, but certain channels just look terrible (at least for OnDemand -- have not tested live).
Yeah, I have the same issue with Starz/Encore videos. Everything else is fine. I feel as if this is related to the fact you can't use the Starz app if you're a Comcast subscriber, because they have some on going issue like Disney and Amazon. Oh well, that's what we get for having Comcast. Oh wait, I mean that's what we get for the FCC not allowing actual competition.

Any hope on adding the TV GO channel listings or making full HD available as it is streaming services? Where I live, we lack BBC America in HD as well as 19 of the HBO/Cinemax/Showtime/Starz channels (we only get 1 per, should be 23 total), as well as all but 1 of the Encore channels. Obviously more, but those the channels that matter to me for $300/month. I was hoping this app would make those missing channels available in HD (2017... Hello? Knock knock! 4k is at the door and we're still lacking in HD), but that's not the case. Just a carbon copy of what's available via the cable box. Would also be nice to have some means to bring up the channel guide, dvr, info while on a channel, much like you would with a stb. Seems like the A/B buttons are not being used, although most buttons do nothing while viewing.
