I hate to have to give this a poor rating, but when you are paying a monthly fee for a service (HBO, ESPN and CNN) you expect software that WORKS, properly, with only minor bugs.
Well, the latest update breaks full screen in Yosemite. Neither the in-app full screen button nor the OS green window button to invoke full screen do anything. So, your only choice is to watch in a window. This, combined with continued use of Adobe Flash, which crashes fairly regularly, means a poor quality product. I'm being generous with 2.5 stars. Without Flash and with full screen that actually works, this could be a 4 star app.

Nonsense. There is nothing wrong with my system. In fact, support for the app acknowledges it is broken in Yosemite and they are working on a fix. They also acknowledge it is broken in El Capitan since only the system full screen button actually works, and only if desktops have separate spaces (unless you like having all your screens blacked out when you full screen.) So your claim that it "works great" contradicts what the maker's themselves say about it.

Works great on my El Capitan MacBook Pro. The app's fullscreen button has never worked, and continues not to. But the OS green window button always has, and with this update, continues to work for full screen viewing.

Must be something with your system :-(
