    It’s gonna be pretty important to me and a lot of people that there be some kind of streaming app. Casting to a chrome box is great, but what about those of us with a well-loved Roku?
    Thanks for the updates!

    Here’s hoping there’ll be a UWP app for Windows. Would really like to watch Stargate on my computer, Xbox, tablet, and the rumored Surface Phone!

    @Benjamin
    Someone asked that a similar question, about it becoming available for Windows 10 and the answer from Stargate Command was “not at present”.

    I installed the app on my phone (can’t do much more than that since I’m not eligible for exclusive membership). It certainly looks colorful (and is a freakin’ drain on my battery power). I’m not an app-user and don’t have many apps in general on my phone — I only have useful apps. I don’t even have games installed. This app classifies as a useless app (not to be interpreted as negative people).

    I don’t do messaging/foruming through apps — my motor skills are at an all-time low and making long comments on a tiny screen with a keyboard that makes me miss every other letter is just not what I call fun. I need a physical keyboard with a large screen.

    However, the content is for the most part accessible to all like the articles and the photos, and even the diary about Origins. Everything is clearly marked whether it’s all-access only, or free-for-all. And the commandcoins are for bragging rights (or so I’ve been told). You can earn em by logging in, doing quizzes and polls, and commenting/liking and generally be active.

    Now, if only the website would contain the same content, I would gladly join and bring some Lemming-fun to the forum, but for now Gateworld is still definitely the place to be for a good discussion and/or gushing over favorite characters.

    When will the full access be available in Canada? The App is only available in the US itunes store.

    The site is dead. I am wondering if it is down well to bring it live aka get things out to the world or if they underestimated the onslot that was coming.

    Make sure to use a https://www.stargatecommand.co URL. Note the www.
    Some links on the site still point to https://stargatecommand.co, that site is toast and it’s DNS entry is different than www.

    I really hope they come up with some way for people to watch it off their playstation or X-box

    I can’t believe you are promoting that train wreck of a cash grab. The site is designed for Apple mobile devices FIRST, Android Second, with web browsers as a third thought. Heck they couldn’t even hire an admin that knew what the they were doing and screwed the DNS which is mind boggling. (NOTE I am a sysadmin as well as running several webservers, I kinda know this stuff). There appears to be a server resource problem as it seems either the memcache or redis isn’t working properly or it could be the numerous calls on each page to outside domains and my god couldn’t they have found a better cdn than facebook?!? I can name 3 off the top of my head that are far superior. This thing is looking more and more like the SGW nightmare I figured it would be. Miss managed by amateurs and rushed to production just to get paid. The really horrible part is when it tanks, MGM won’t let anyone touch the Stargate property again for another 10 years and we the fans will be made to suffer.

    So far, this has been a disaster. I have to even get my email saying I have All-Access. My wife gave it to me as a gift and she got an email saying it was purchased and our account his been charged the $20 with the promise I would get my log in information right away. That was last night and I have not gotten anything. On top of that, I do not even see an iOS app in the Apple store to be able to watch it. Have I missed that? I do a search online and find it in the Google Play Store. I am not going to buy something like that. Any one else having similar issues like this? So far I am not impressed and have actually asked for our money back, yet of course, they have not responded to either.

    Mimir,

    Being in IT I have been through allot of product launches and problems/glitches are not unheard of. To be honest this isn’t the worst launch I have seen.

    MikeS,
    It has been a month since I signed up. I registered an account using Facebook and it seems to be working ok for me. They never sent me an ID but as of right now all the All Access stuff seems to be working. Not sure if I gave them my facebook ID during the setup so they might be linking the account that way.

    I signed up a while back and didn’t get a username/password sent to me. To access the site I put in my e-mail addy and used “forgot password” and they sent an email that let me actually setup a password lol.

    Personally I think the site is pretty bad at the moment even if it wasn’t lagging/timing out all the time.
    *The video player is very lacking in options compared to netflix/amazon/youtube etc…
    *the forum is a big blocky crapfest instead of a real forum and it has no subforums so it won’t ever be anything worth actually using unless they change it.

    I did however enjoy some of the trivia parts and the developer’s journal.

    Honestly though none of it matters if they want $20 from me to start making more Stargate they could have just asked for a check without the site.

    I know we should expect some issues on the first couple days after launch, but the website is practically unusable. 9 times out of 10, the browser times out or it fails to load either on the home page or navigating around the website. When it does load, it doesn’t log me in automatically, even though I told it I am ok with the cookies. Occasionally, pages load with all the elements stacked together, sometimes with videos playing randomly in that stack. the video player doesn’t work at full screen in firefox, and Edge is having even more trouble just loading the pages.

    I finally managed to access the website, and it’s a freakin’ forum disappointment.

    There is no forum — just a cluster of messages with comments and likes. No order, only chaos. In the app, the posts are randomly ordered with no sense of direction, but on the website it’s even worse. It looks like a Tumblr copy and I can honestly say that this is not the way for me.

    So, I’ll probably stay for the articles, quizzes and polls, but as far as interacting goes with other fans — Gateworld *is* definitely THE PLACE to be!

    The app isn’t available in the App Store on my iPhone or iPad.
    I have to bookmark or enter the site in GOOGLE search to get here.

    I paid my $20 and still can’t access anything on the site, starting to wonder if they are running a take your money and run type of setup.
