Generally ok but lacking in parts

Generally this app is ok .

However the things that annoy me on a daily basis are:

- difficult navigation of episodes , I was watching a 5 series long show and when I was trying to find the last episode played , it wasn’t showing up in a helpful place . There also wasn’t any markers to suggest where I left off. To make matters worse when scrolling through the list of episodes there was no easy series selection option and I had to scroll through the entire list of episodes. I think I watched some of an episode prior to the one I was in to manually determine where I was at.

- sort of related to the first point ,’when using cast , the resume from the place in an episode where I left off doesn’t work . It always starts from
The beginning and I have to skip through hoping I jump to the correct spot

- nice to have feature , like other popular apps such as Netflix when you scroll through an episode and it shows you an updated thumbnail of the point in the episode to make finding a particular place would be nice

Difficult to watch audio described programs on the app

Can the development team please put on the roadmap the ability to toggle audio description from the play screen?
Currently, if I want to watch an audio described programme, I have to go into the audio describe section. If I’m lucky, the episode I want will be featured on the first page, otherwise I have to go into the A-Z and find the program i want. However, if it is a series, only the latest episode is shown with audio description. If I select a previous episode, the audio description doesn’t work. Also, if I’m watching an audio described episode from a series and the next episode launches automatically with auto play enabled, the next episode doesn’t play with audio description, even if the website shows that audio description is available. Also, at the moment you cannot currently download audio described programs.
Confusing to read? It certainly is a confusing way to try and watch audio described programs.
