Ratings and Reviews
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 when....it’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.
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.
Ruined by greed
This is a well-designed app ruined by deceptive marketing and greed. After it is downloaded, all its shows are available for free viewing for a couple days. Then, without warning, it requires a login to the person's TV provider, a kind of paywall. That's not unreasonable if it were announced upfront, but here's the worst thing: if you have the channel as part of your TV package and log in successfully, many many shows may still be unavailable (in a nontransparent way except clicking them one by one) because of something like "your TV provider has not made an agreement with us for this". In other words, Fox got greedy and wanted an extra fee and the TV provider refused to give in to the blackmail.
My father, in his 80s, loves this channel and was excited to get the app so he could also view shows on his iPad. In the end, he was frustrated and sad and we ended up deleting the app.
