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.

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.

This “update” is pure rubbish! Not worth having the app for iPad any longer!

I was literally in the middle of watching a show on the old (and FAR superior) app, when play was interrupted and I was told I had to update the app. I obliged the request and upon opening the newly updated app, the entire formatting has changed....for the worse! 1. Now the landing page is ONLY vertically oriented, so if your lying in bed watching you iPad, the vertical orientation is a pain and not worth adapting to. 2. Then, IF you can tolerate the stupid landing page and subsequent navigation to find the video you want to watch, the playback orientation, now able to go horizontal, only offers a window within a window sort of video. In other words, it no longer takes advantage of the full horizontal, wide screen playback and feels more like I’m watching on a phone or worse yet, like I’m watching on an old cathode ray tv...via an iPad! NO other streaming apps have such ridiculous interface and I totally regret the lure to and eventual capitulation to update the app. Unless it’s redone like it originally was and per the standards of all streaming apps for iPad, I’m deleting the app and I’ll just have to watch via telly for the foreseeable future. Your developers just set back this app by about 10 years!

We're working on an update to use the app completely in landscape, which we hope to release soon. In the meantime, as long as you open your app and browse in portrait mode, all videos will automatically open in full-screen landscape with no cut-off sections. We're sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
