Good app but needs some key features

Some things I'd like to see in future updates:
1) Allow me to see recently viewed programmes or pick up again after mid-viewing.
2) Screen to automatically go to landscape mode when I select a program. The screen goes to landscape whilst size itself into a portrait dimension resulting in half a screen.
3) Ability to cast to the tv using google chrome or google home.
