The Hot Zone

I am a Optus customer so the app is available to me through my account. The app is pretty good, but could definitely be improved. Takes a bit to scroll through all the alphabetically displayed programs to find what you like. Would be good if they were grouped into categories. Once you do find something you like you can add it to your favourites. Also for some reason I can play everything fine on my iPhone and through Apple TV except for your new series ‘The Hot Zone’. It just won’t start streaming. It has worked at my dads place on Telstra Wi-Fi but not at home on Optus.

New version has less useful features

I like a nice nature documentary in the evenings. The old version of this app had some glitches, eg many videos would be missing several seconds of audio and video (even though the video was still playing). I was hopeful such problems would be fixed in the upgrade.
Unfortunately they haven’t. What’s more, the time indicators are gone, as is the ability to add something to you favourites without first opening the article/video. This means you can’t just scroll through a list and create a list of things to watch later - you have to actually start watching it in order to see how long it goes for and to save it to your favourites. That’s pretty useless. Why would they remove functionality that was there in the first place?
