Even though it’s based on Android, the Amazon Fire TV app for Sundance Now only receives an average rating of 3 stars. However, the most negative reviews are from people who don’t understand that Sundance Now is a different service from SundanceTV.

Roku’s Channel Store does not collect detailed reviews, but the Sundance Now app’s 3.2 stars may be due to the same user errors.

The reviews for the Sundance Now app in Microsoft’s Xbox Store are even worse at 2.3 stars. However, only seven people have rated the app which could be a sign that Xbox users just aren’t interested in streaming TV through their game consoles.

Why Use Sundance Now?

On-demand streaming services like Netflix and Amazon amass enormous catalogs of content. They hope that everybody will find something to watch. Unfortunately, that means you have to wade through tons of content you don’t like in hopes of finding content you do like.

A streaming service like Sundance Now takes a different approach by curating a distinctive catalog of content that only appeals to certain tastes. If programs like Riviera or The Name of the Rose appeals to you, then you’ll want to subscribe to Sundance Now. Finding content worth watching becomes much easier when a service is designed to meet your particular tastes in TV, film and documentaries.
