It works pretty well other than occasionally dismissing adds. Also, the tv guide feature of the app isn't very intuitive in my opinion.

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

It works well. the only downside to this app are the adds. when one loads a tv channel, an add pops up which may be a little difficult at times to dismiss. Other than that, works well. Also, the tv guide feature in my opinion isn't very intuitive. But other than that, works quite well and I like it!
