    I will stop spamming this thread with this last reply. Frontend is not just "UI" and "colors", especially in their case as they were and still are using a single-page application with Vue.js meaning the entire web application is dependent on one single javascript file. That one file is responsible for both rotating the news slider at the top of homepage as well as making login/stream/etc requests to the backend and actually allowing users to receive content. So one faulty piece of code can easily break the entire application or a huge part of unrelated functionality. I know this first hand, as frontend developer I too have broken my fair share of things. The examples I brought out with login and connection have been frontend issues, as the requests sent from frontend were faulty (missing headers, broken payloads etc, jquery conflicts or undefined variables, which is the most common). These are the issues that bother me the most, because often enough they are so simple to fix, that I can do it even via browsers devtools myself, yet the issues go unfixed for weeks.

    Regarding the testing - the only thing you can't really test is the signal and request load, everything else you can and should test "anywhere, anytime", there's no excuse.

    Finishing up by going back to the start - there's no UI change that big that goes without any change to the functionality. And as you can see from their updated site, there's a lot that has been changed.

    End of rant, sorry to everyone.

    Works if you uninstall, install then open the app again and then the update should be in Google play

    I got the update for the app already yesterday but it basically didn’t work at all. Today it’s working so maybe they will add later live maps there?
    Hopefully so. To bring out an update but take away live maps and the ability to watch on numerous devices at the same time, would be annoying.

    I'm also a developer and I know what you mean.

    But the point was that when we see "the rotating map", it's the director's choice, because the other feeds failed to produce content because of other problems. This has nothing to do with the UI, the frontend, or the app.

    Also, a part of the login issues were caused by the login servers failing with capacity, but I wasn't aware of missing headers.

    It's true that every time you update something, you're prone to breaking something, and you can also do simulated runs to test, but the real life is still always unexpected.

    Sorry for making you angry

    Hope they get it together before wednesday.
    After new try today, it worked. I think the procedure is a bit confusing. However now I can log in properly.

    Tried to open the Smart TV app on my Samsung TV and it gives me the following message:
