Started off good...gettin sketchy

When I first started using the app it worked great, could shut the phone off or close the app to open a text message and I could pick up where I left off by just going back to the app. That hasnt been the same for the last few weeks and now it doesnt even show that I started watching an episode after I start one. The continue where you left off feature from the menu has never worked, it deletes my favorite shows from my favorites list and feel like the commercials are kind of out of hand. Would give it a 1 star rating but its the only place I can catch up on some series I have missed so I throw it a bone for that.

Let me start out by saying I have no problem with commercials. They are necessary. However, this app is ridiculous. If the app crashes during a show either because the app is terrible or because you accidentally shut your phone off THEN it crashes, you have to watch tons of commercials just to get to where you left off. Example is Naked and Afraid where Season 5 does NOT exist on the list of seasons. You have to view the last episode of season 4 and fast forward to the end watching 3 minutes of commercials. It will then cycle to the first episode of season 5. THEN you have to fast forward to the end of the first episode, watch another three minutes worth. Repeats that a few times until you finally get to the episode ... THEN watch another 3 minutes worth. You had better hope you get the spot right, because you will have to watch more commercials if you don’t. THEN it crashes. Rinse and repeat. There is no pickup where you left off.

From flawless to GARBAGE

App was working flawless with AppleTV until the latest the update Discovery pushed two weeks ago. Now shows won’t start and kicks out of the app to the main screen, I suspect this has something to do with the commercials which Discovery has drop the ball with coding.

In short app has become useless.


Update: July 27, 2018


This information is for the many people who are experiencing issues with your Discovery app on AppleTV.

I’ve identified the problem without the help of Discovery and have a work around to resolve the issue as documented above. This ISSUE has nothing to do with your internet connection as another person has said in a review.

The issue is indeed related to the coding of the Discovery app which corrupts the installed app previous to the Discovery update.

To resolve the issue: First remove the app completely, Second restart your AppleTV, Third reinstall the Discovery app, Fourth turn off Nielsen Measurement (Discovery spyware) and finally restart your AppleTV once again.

We have two 4K HDR AppleTVs. One we were able use the work around and the other had a additional step of RESETTING the entire AppleTV prior to reinstalling the Discovery app.

This can major pain & inconvenience for people who are using their AppleTV as a HomeKit hub.
