Is anybody else having any problem with the new Pluto TV widget? Everytime I try to watch a program on one of the Pluto TV channels it freezes up.

I wish they would not spend a minute or $1 adding apps to the STBs.

So many people have Smart TVs or streaming devices. I would rather they improve the boxes themselves as an STB. Not be a media server

Having the same issue.  Sometimes I can watch for 10-15 mins, then it freezes, then sometimes it's every 3 to 5 mins it freezes.  Thought it was maybe because I was using WIFI to my box, so took the time to run a cable line to it, but no luck, still just randomly freezes.  Only work around is to go channel up/down then it starts working again.  Very annoying!!!!

Same here, pretty much useless on both on the DVR and the remote set top boxes.  It hangs/freezes and also when you are watching something the video freezes quite a bit.

 

Also found that running on two boxes or one box and the pluto app on my iPad will cause problems, everything hangs.

Yes it is annoying when watching a Pluto channel it will freeze up. Also it is a pain when trying to change to a diferent Pluto channel you have to do it one channel at a time. Also when doing the one channel at a time Pluto will freeze up sometimes the freeze up is so bad you need to reboot the cable box. If FIOS is offering the Pluto TV channels why doesn't FIOS have definative channels on their sysyem  for Pluto. Why not have the Pluto channels on the 2000's channel numbers?

You would think that with all the complaints about Pluto TV freezing on the FIOS widget that FIOS would do something to fix this problem.
