We gave up on Lightbox some months back in favour of Netflix as the LB android app was buggy and kept sending crash notices when not even in use.

Have they sorted it out yet? Reason I ask, I see they have Mr Robot which I'm dead keen to have a look at, but don't want to bother reinstalling etc if app issues still persist?

And how does it perform on Chromecast?

thanks in advance

There is a separate light box forum.
I have the beta and it's a lot better. The only thing that still bugs me is if you check the synopsis of one episode then close the app when you open it again it skips that episode and takes you to the next.

Chromecast support is pretty solid.

Overall pretty happy with it.

Beta seems much better,

Only gripes are the screen while playing while chromcasting needs some tweaking and it dosnt remember which episode your on very well

Totally worth it to watch Mr Robot though
