(Update) They fixed it! Thank you :) The app works like a charm now. Complete overhaul, and they even fixed the pixelation that I used to see for a few minutes after every commercial. Now my only suggestion is that the scrub bar pop up immediately when we tap, instead of the artistic (?) delay. But I think I can live with that. Good work, devs!

[This app has always been slow and inefficient, but I’ve put up with it to watch my one show. But as of this week, I can’t use the app for more 2 minutes (literally) before it crashes, doesn’t matter if I’m watching something or navigating. Obviously this makes it utterly useless. If it doesn’t get fixed soon, I’ll be deleting it because the empty space on my phone has more value.]

Hi there! Thank you so much for the great review. If there's anything you can think of or suggest that we can improve on within the app to help improve the review score you gave us, just let us know; we're always excited to hear new ideas from our guests.

You’ve lost this viewer

I’ve streamed National Geographic channel for years through my cable network. Lately I have to delete the app and re add the silly thing. For some reason it won’t acknowledge my cable provider unless I start from the beginning. I do understand that I could make my own account within the app but I’m tired of app providers selling my info. ( yet another way to make money off of me) This will no longer be a problem for me because I’m unable to watch the shows I used to stream. I work when my normal shows air on my cable network. Unless I purchase the additional streaming service ( even though I already pay for National Geographic through my cable network) I’m unable to watch the shows I would like to watch. Basically I would be paying for advertising for one channel to two separate providers. I’m done with National Geographic and also will not renew my subscription to the magazine. It was nice knowing you when you were more interested in imparting knowledge instead of making a buck.

Edit. For some reason now I’m unable to access any shows through your app. I used to have to delete the app and reinstall the app to be able to view shows. For the last few weeks I’ve repeatedly been shown that you’re experiencing “technical problems” . No matter what I try, I don’t seem to have this app’s secret pass word. I wish the app was even half as good as the shows. I now call this Firetrucking National Geographic.

Ad integration...horrific

First, I don’t mind ads. But the sheer number of ads; the “choice” to see multiple or single ads and the repetition of the same cross promotional nonsense makes this format frustrating at best; and a waste of time in the new digital era of media.

I’d love to be fly on wall of the exec meeting discussing ad placements in the app. “Hey lets synergy our cross promotional shows and really...zzzzz!” “Blue sky that idea Farnsworth!!” - seriously, just give me the ad without having me navigate the idiotic menu with a prompt the size of a pea. Give me multiple ads at once! I don’t care about the ads, I get it, it makes you money but why can’t media companies understand user experience should be front and center. Why can’t you just deliver a similar TV experience? Do you get digital is the new TV? No need to make it harder. It’s entertainment. I pay you to immerse myself in nonsense; not to think about what ad I’d like to see especially’s the same stupid ad. Ok I get CW is pushing supergirl by repeatedly showing her thrust out her bosoms over and over; I get CW is pushing Charmed, which btw, I couldn’t figure out which show was which. And both shows aren’t even close to the target demographic of the tv show I am watching. The chance of me watching CW is zero.

Perhaps I’m cynical but I have more hope for a 5 year old exploring play dough than these dumb “tv” execs.
