Accessibility Comments: 

this app does fine when you first open it, but once past the log in screen, when your in live tv, it's absolutely terrible. not only is it in landscape, but when you read down the list of channels, it does not tell you what channel you have selected. it seems like it pulls random channels that are not on your network. it reads shows that are on, but not what channel they are on. when you select a show, then you cannot navigate to another cannel you want to watch. you have to close the app then reopen it.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments:
