(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.]
Developer Response ,
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.
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.
