Way too many commercials

Love the History channel, hate commercials taking up so much time! Vikings is my fave, can’t get enough, but you see 2 maybe 3 scenes and then boom! you’re bombarded with umpteen commercials! Give us a break! More show, less commercials. It would also be nice to see more historical period pieces like Vikings, as there are many of us who love love love ancient history. Not a big fan of the re-enactment shows though.
The History app is great, but there is a lot of black screen and once again, those horrid commercials! When something is first run on TV, advertisers are getting their commercials on at that time. Why do we have to endure the same thing online? There should not be commercials on any shows that are viewed online. It’s advertiser greed.

Love the Past

I can only say that when we studied things like the “Roaring 20’s,The Depression,The Boston Tea Party,The Roman Empire, right on back to when the Dinosaurs roamed the Earth” and we as children could not escape from the exciting things we were being taught, only a lot of the ways we were taught was matter of factly very boring. I really liked it when there was a film, even fact filled documentaries were great. As valuable as a books knowledge can be, they’ll never be as interesting as someone else doing the reading and telling about it.
Ever since I can remember and before is how far back my true desire to be next to GOD goes. Now with that being said, Please History Channel Accept My Full Hearted Thankfulness!!!! You Make History Fun!!
I Sincerely hope that you continue to be a large part of the knowledge that we seek the most.
Knowledge of Ourselves!!!!

Great content, annoying app

This review is for the tvOS app. No complaints about the shows on History Channel. In the tvOS app they look and sound fine. But the UX in the app is rough and riddled with bugs.
1. Constantly repeats the same show segments after an ad. I suspect this is triggered by the ad insertion system as it only seems to happen after fast forwarding through a show segment (which typically triggers a commercial). This happens a LOT!
2. So many commercials. It is almost unbearable to see the same commercial this many times. Forcing viewers to sit through the same commercial 15 times during an episode is bad business. Binge watching? I hope you’re ok watching a commercial a hundred times or more.
3. Mediocre navigating. I have to work harder than I’d expect to find what I want to watch in this app.
4. I have to log in / activate every other time I launch the tvOS app. Super annoying and time consuming. Multiple AppleTV’s have the same issue.
5. TvOS app doesn’t always remember what episodes I’ve watched so I’m constantly guessing which episode was last viewed. Add to this the issues above with fast forwarding and I’ve spent longer trying to get to the last 5 minutes of an episode than the length of the episode itself.

I’m still using the app to binge some of my favorite shows but the bugs and UX issues make it a lot more difficult than it should be.
