Finally REAL History!

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy being able to watch high production historical documentaries! In my opinion, for those people who originally, the History Channel when it was first added to cable, became one of their favorite channels, this is worth paying extra.
Although, my husband and I enjoy some of the reality programs, such as Pickers, most of them are don’t do a thing for me, and it is somewhat sad that the as cable channels are having to do more original programming and reality shows seem to be the most cost effective way of ensuring they get a slice of the advertising dollars, we are losing much quality viewing from the non-premium channels.
The only thing I would suggest is that new content be added on a quicker basis. For documentary addicts like myself, we have viewed a lot of the videos already, with multiple viewings of some of my favorites!
Just as a quick addition, when I first joined, I had run into some billing and access issues, which they resolved fairly painlessly for me. So, if that has been anyone else’s experience, it’s worth it to stick with them.

I missed this all so very badly!

The very first time that I saw the history channel, when we first got cable television I thought it was the absolute greatest thing ever but ever since then instead of the channel being devoted to its name and living up to its name it’s become a never ending time slot of meaningless shows and programming that has absolutely nothing to do with any type of history, not US History, not world History, not human history just nothing! It’s really sad to know what it once was and see what it has become. This App is exactly what I would expect from the history channel and now that I have it I will never watch it on TV again. It’s awesome because I can even pick and choose my favorite type of History and the period of time that I most like. This is a win win for me and if it weren’t for the rest of my family and the fact that I am living on a disability retirement I would now get rid of cable television and save some money for having to pay for both and be perfectly happy with having this as my entertainment and also at the same time a wonderful opportunity to learn things that I had missed or overlooked in history. Please never stop expanding and reaching for all of History, and all of its many faucets, and uniquenesses. I am completely satisfied. Thank you so very very much.

The only reason I wanted to download this app and pay for it is to have access to Vikings. The fake you with a documentary called Vikings, not the actual series. Same title, not the same show. I would give this 0 stars if that was possible for the following reasons:
1. We, the consumers, are too stupid to search for shows we want to watch. No search capability. You know, type somethings and you get a list of results. The 1999 technology. Similar comment from another user prompted an idiotic response from the ‘developer’ of this app. It is mind bending.
2. Not one popular show form the History channel. Just go to the history channel app and see what they present, nothing of interest is in the Vault. You would think the Vault would contain all their best shows, wouldn’t you? The Vault, otherwise call it Basement.
3. You pay money for this. This is not a free app so you would not expect only rejected and not so popular shows. Charge us $16 and up if you provide the quality. I would pay and I expect many would pay too.
4. A small list of shows that is not even organized in a logical manner is the only way to interact within this app. The user experience rivals nothing that I can think of since Al Gore invented the internet. Truly horrible with lack of vision and basic understanding of your customer’s needs.
