Classic Doctor Who Finally!
I have been searching for a place to watch surviving episodes of Classic Doctor Who and this service provides! Though it isn’t perfect due to missing the episodes that have not survived (including the parts of those episodes that did survive) having 90% of the classic series available makes up for it anyway. Plus, since I am subscribing to the service I also get to check out everything else the service has to offer besides Doctor Who.
The actual streaming service of the app is good, much better than most reviews suggest, but it could use a few improvements. It would be nice if it kept track of what you have watched and had a “continue watching” section where it had the next episode ready for you instead of making you remember what you have already watched yourself. Other services also have features that let you skip back or skip ahead a few second to get to a part you want to see which is also absent here. You also cannot watch videos on this app while opening another. Despite these small flaws, the app has been reliable so far and I have subscribed to the annual plan. Here’s hoping to a good use of it.
I want my money back!
During the free-trial period this app, while not brilliantly organized, worked fine, no crashes. The day after the first month was billed, it began crashing! Every darn time I start to watch an episode of something, about 10-15 minutes in, it crashes. Doesn't matter which device (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV) or what the program is. Close app, reset device, restart app, crash, repeat. Delete app, reset device, reinstall app, sign in again, choose program, start to play, crash. Doesn't matter at that point that I like programs offered, I'm fed up!
As for the app's design, it's as if whoever the developers were, they must have never used any other streaming service themselves, since the app has virtually none of the features a good streaming service has. Doesn't properly track and save what you've watched so you can immediately return to a series and/or episode you've already watched. Search makes it crash. What's the point?
While I like the huge selection of British programming that it has, what use is it if the app is unusable?! The only reason I gave this app two stars is the size of its library of programming.
Good Content, but sign in issues
I am a huge Brit tv fan, and luckily live in DC metro area where we get a unique PBS channel, WETA UK showing 24 hour Brit programming. Even though it's wonderful, I also subscribe to Acorn, and now BritBox to round out my options with very few duplications. However, I have had to sign out and back in every day to access BritBox as I am prompted with " invalid token". This is got to be resolved soon. Support suggests to sign out and back in, duh,... I get that, but every day? UPDATE...I've adjusted my rating to 5 stars after sign in issues resolved. Britbox app support contacted me to confirm their update corrected my issue. Barely over a week new, and already more content. I haven't used any other apps all month! Very Happy!!
Edit/Update Several months on and I'm still loving this app!!! No longer any sign in issues.
I've learned that 95% of the classic Doctor Who episodes that are NOT available on BritBox can be watched on Dailymotion, although some are animated.
