The Pickers

I am 98 years old and I am visually impaired! My daughter bought me an iPad and now I can watch my favorite shows! I have been watching the Pickers since day one and now I can watch them whenever I want! I have seen all the episodes at least 3 times but even when I watch the repeats, I enjoy it as much as the first time! Many items and stories remind me of experiences in my own life! I am so grateful to have this opportunity in my life, as it brings me so much happiness! My biggest problem though, when watching the old episodes, I can’t read the prompts on the screen and my daughter has to be around when the FREQUENT commercials interrupt the episode I am watching, so she can answer the prompt and proceed so I can finish watching the episode! I find this very frustrating and I don’t like to have my daughter spend so much time helping me watch the old episodes! I also enjoy the series of Alone and some of the other History stories. Thank you for providing such interesting programs!

Good, but a few suggestions.

I really like that the History channel has decided to join the streaming service community. They have a great variety of pretty much all the shows you see on the History channel through a TV service provider.

However, i’m a bit disappointed that you have to have a TV Service provider in order to get any access above the very few select episodes they offer for free. I wish they would follow suit to the other streaming services and offer a monthy, tri-monthy, 1/2 year, or a year’s subscription plan at some rate for those that do not have a TV service provider, but would like access to these shows.

With the vast array of streaming services becoming more and more available, I believe it is only a matter of time before streaming services completely take over from TV service provider’s. My family is finding that it is much cheaper to pay for the tailored channels and streaming services we like, often at a much cheaper rate than tv service providers. For that reason, we are trying to do away with our own tv service provider. But the fact that History Live requires you to have a Tv service provider does not make that option readily available to those following this path, or simply unable to have tv service. I believe the history channel would be able to profit much more and attract a greater audience if they offered membership rates (monthly, 3-months, 6-months, 1 year) in addition to the free option already available if you have a tv service provider.

Worst streaming app ever!

The History channel streaming app for Apple TV is the worst network television streaming app ever and has been for several years. All of the issues others have listed are true, and still occurring after years of complaints. Let’s take my experience tonight as an example. I thought I would try to catch up on Forged in Fire. I think I was four episodes behind. During each of those episodes, when the show reaches a commercial break the app either simply crashes, or better yet, skips over the whole section of the show and goes into the next commercial break. These issues didn’t happen occasionally, they happen at every commercial break. This isn’t the first time I encounter these issues. I only have enough patience to use the app maybe once a month. Every time I use the app these issues reoccur. Luckily for you, I have the solution. Fire everyone involved in app development, everyone from upper management to ground level developers and testers, and start from scratch. With how long the app has been so horrible it’s obvious no one cares to give their customers a quality experience. And if I’m lucky I’ll get a reply to this review with their canned response to email them for assistance. Tell me this, how is your support going to fix this for one user, why not actually produce a quality product for all of your users.
