Great content, app could use some love

Real, original history content on here (no ancient aliens or ice road truckers). It’s a great value for what you get, and the quality is much better than what you find on most cable “history” shows. The app is only so-so, though. It’s missing several features that we’re all pretty used to for video streaming now. No watchlist, no user profiles, no syncing across devices, no downloading content. It’s just a bare-bones video player at the moment, but I hope that will improve as time goes on. However, the content really is worth every penny.

Wonderful Original Content

I've greatly enjoyed watching shows during my first month of subscription. There are amazing documentaries not available elsewhere. The app works well, and I've had no issues loading or watching content. I would highly recommend this for all fellow lovers of history.

The one thing I feel they are missing at this point is an app for the AppleTV. I still watch most of my content on my television, and that means I have to airplay the content. That works well, but it means I've tied up my phone during playback.

Welcome home Nerds!

I have loved history all my life ! And this App has nearly every topic I could wish for! And it’s not the same stock footage that we’ve all seen a thousand times .... if anything the shorter videos leave you wishing they were longer .

If I had any disappointments, it would be that some of the topics you would want to see a documentary on are only covered in audio format or are done in the form of a dialogue.... But the dialogue is excellent... can’t wait to see where they go from here! Early days my lads.... Early days ! ❤️👍
