Expert review

USA Network could be the perfect streaming service for you if you have a cable or satellite provider at home. It’s free through your provider, and the app gives you freedom to watch your favorite original content away from home.

But some of the newest shows and movies are not available to stream quickly, and you might find the library limited in its overall selection. Plus other streaming options out there require less commitment.

      Hi Kirsten,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      While I can’t tell you exactly why your smartphone isn’t picking up the full episodes of USA NOW shows, I can tell you some possible reasons. For one, it could be that you don’t have the full access to their full episode. Two, it could be that you have poor internet connection. Three, you don’t know how to find full episodes.

      I would suggest that you try tapping on the “Full Episode” tab. It should show you a list of shows that come with full episodes. Try to browse your app and explore it so you can get more familiar with it.

      If all else fail, you may directly get in touch with USA NOW. They should be able to provide a more personalized answer.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
