Selecting a TV show or movie.

So it fair for my comments I think I should say I’ using the app on and iPhone 6 that’s using the iOS version 11.2.1. With out making the thumbs nails smaller I’m not sure how you get more on the screen, but as I’m seeing four of every category then as I try and skip ahead with in the category it will only load the next 3 the get hung up and then spend thirty to sixty seconds trying to reconnect. So the app can reload the same thumb nails. Happens a lot in the Live category. I am only make the assumption that it is updating the app because live TV is that. Live TV, so it must update. Yet, it is very annoying. I watch a certain sport show that’s broadcast live on the app starting at 9:00 AM CST and ends at 12:00CST and and once it’s going J don’t have that many issues, but with the constant reloading of the thumbnails makes me be like a ninja swiping from right to left trying to reach my TV show before it makes the decision to reset and then start the list over. That’s is really frustrating. I have more, but I’m sure people have fallen asleep by now.

Many technicalities

This app is needs an entire makeover. Let’s start with the fact that it takes FOREVER to load. no other tv app on my phone is like that, then sometimes the tv shows I was watching will disappear from under the continue watching section. Like it’s 2018 my shows should NOT be disappearing, then when I go to rewatch the show that disappeared it sometimes won’t let you fast forward to where you left off at, so I have to rewatch the entire show again.🤦🏾‍♀️ (which I won’t do). also sometimes when you binge watch shows back to back the app will let you skip commercials and guess what instead of just jumping back to the tv screen it’ll basically hop to each commercial but don’t play it & THEN the show will come back on. Y’all do realize when it does that it takes as much time as a commercial does. Also what’s the point of having tv shows up there that I can’t watch ? And I’m not talking about premium channel shows either. The entire saved by the bell show was listed but I couldn’t watch it. hmmm let’s see oh yea and STOP PLAYING THE SAME COMMERCIALS. NO ONE WANTS TO WAYCH THE SAME COMMERCIAL OVER AND OVER AND OVER. You all also need to fix the FOX channel because it doesn’t work on my phone/app with none of my devices. I had to download the actual fox app. This app also freezes too much and I think that’s about it. You all need some serious help if you want me to come to corporate I’ll be more than happy to help make you all become more efficient and effective.

DIRECTV’s Television Interface

Not only is that app for your phone or iPad extremely glitchy, but DIRECTV’s new television interface is horrendous. I have DIRECTV wired directly from my Satellite dish to a Mini Genie, and am appalled at the menu changes. Currently, though “prettier”, One can no longer Mark a position in a playback or live show with the push of one button in order to return to it at a later date; the bottom area of the screen is blacked out for quite a few seconds if one pauses, backs up, or rewinds, etc. This is particularly distressing when watching sports channels, where one might want to continue to see the bottom 1/4th of the screen And view the “crawl” for the score, or continuing updates of other games, etc. The previous interface, largely analog, with a simple menu across the left-hand side, very intuitively allowed one to “Search“, “Record“, “settings” “manage recordings”, etc., without all of the pretty pictures, and repetition which now takes up over 75% of the right-hand side of the interface which use to freeze the show one was actually watching. Whatever happened to testing with real life people and keeping the ergonomics simple??. A thoroughly outrageous and Horrendous interface.

GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS INTERFACE DIRECTv !!! Or, we all go to another carrier . We expect much better from DIRECTV and from AT&T.
