    Today the tv part is supposed to be free for the weekend does anyone know what time US Eastern that it starts haven't seen it up yet.
    This will go a long way in helping me decide whether to buy it or not so I'm glad they are doing that.

    I caved and tried it, but ended up right where I was after reading your impressions. I ended up just getting my email for refund approval.

    Since the update, the double notes are actually playable. I still miss about 1 out it 10 doubles, but it's a lot better than the 50/50 before.

    I think that was a false rumor. I haven't been able to access the free GHTV tracks all weekend.

    I love this game, and will never use the guitar. I tried out the console/Ps4 demo at Target but wasn't impressed. Happy I stuck to the IOS version.

    I'm not going crazy, there is something wrong with the touch interface on double notes. I just played Epic by Faith No More and that song has a lot of long held notes. I hold the double notes and during the hold I get the red flash and the twang of a missed note when I NEVER MOVED. If they could just fix that one frustrating bug, this game would be perfect.

    Need a quick answer on this one since there's a time limited sale on my country on the iOS guitar controller.
    Can anyone confirm that you can't win any tokens on GHTV and that there's no way to get any other than paying via iAPs?

    Thanks guys!

    Not a quick reply (sorry, wasn't around)...but yeah, GHTV on the iOS version is entirely IAP-based unless you wanna play the 2 live channels.

    Thanks! That sucks, I'll get it on another platform then. It could have been the best way to play it and they had to be greedy...

    Quite funny when you think about it but it's finally on par with the other versions (Thanks for the info Metalcasket):

    What's New in Version 2.0.0

    · New GHTV progression system that allows you to rank up and unlock additional upgrades
    · The GHTV multiplayer totem allows you to compete in real time with other players
    · Access to the GHTV song catalogue “On Demand” using Plays
    · Earn coins to spend on Hero Powers, Plays and Guitar Upgrades to get new high scores
    · Purchase Hero Cash to quickly get more Plays and hammer out those tricky guitar solos
    · Access individual song goals to master your favorite tracks

    I just updated the game. I loved the new update!!!
    BUT I can't play On Demand songs. It does not load and then I get a server error. Who else?

    Fantastic update, one warning though. She's still guzzling bandwidth if using cellular for online play. 200+mb in about 30 minutes of play.

    I plan to get the bundle for this whilst it's cheap in the UK from GAME, but I wanted to know;

    When you get the guitar and unlock the game using the guitar, can you just play the game at any point after that with/without the guitar, or must it be connected at all times for the game to be considered 'unlocked'? Debating just buying the unlock for the game through the app for now, and picking up the guitar later.

    Wow! I was a little on the fence on this, but seriously? Was the game IAP based even before the price drop and people paid $50 for an IAP filled game?

    Last I checked, that's no different to the GHL console version. On Wii U, XBOne, PS4, 360 and PS3, you have two modes; GHTV and GH Live. GH Live is obviously the story mode, with the live action stuff, and GHTV, you have two (now three, I think) channels which are basically music videos, you play for free, with a random selection of music played depending on the channel's current playlist (metal, rock, country, indie, etc).

    Using either the in-game currency (racked up from lots and lots of playing the free mode) or buying 'Plays' with real cash, you can play whatever song you want from the online selection--but it costs you a play every time you choose a song.

    They use the same system in GH Live for iOS. So it's no different, far as I can tell.

    Ok. That makes more sense. I didn't really know how all the modes work.

    I'll probably still hold out for the console bundle at some point.
