Ratings and Reviews
You had One job
(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.

Hi there! Thanks for your review! Locked content can only be played if you're signed into a supported cable provider. If you're signed in with a provider, try signing out an in again. If you still need some help, please reach out to our team directly so we can look into this further with you: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/tv/feedback
Too many ads and the update stinks!
I get it, companies need to make money and when it comes to tv that money is made through ads. I just don’t understand the need to place 5 or 6 ads for every commercial break. It’s ridiculous and most definitely not promoting anything when all I feel like doing is putting my device down during the break or (lately) just turning the show off. Thanks to the new update I can no longer stream forward and backwards through the show so if I miss something I’ve just missed it. You can’t even go forward or backwards by 10 seconds! If I choose to start the show over to see what I missed I have to sit through all of the ads again as well. Plus, the update now cuts off the last minute or two of the show so I never see the conclusion of the episode. All of these issues just seem to make the experience worthless. I love nature shows, but for all of this new trouble I can just go watch some documentary on Netflix instead without all of the issues.
