  • Watchlist Borked

    By Melissa Kin
    After the recent update, my watchlist is completely empty, despite me adding what I had.
  • A bit rough around the edges

    Wonderful selection, worth it for me just to get access to all the old Doctor Who episodes. Streaming works fine for me, and I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth from the subscription fee. But there are some rough edges in the app. For example, in trying to catch up on classic Doctor Who, where stories may span several episodes, there is no indication in the app as to which episodes have been seen. And there’s no “binge watching” feature: in most apps that stream series, you have the option of continuing immediately to the next episode; but not here. It wouldn’t be so bad if the app repositioned the list to the episode you just saw; but no, it goes back to the beginning and you have to scroll back to where you left off. Of the two, I would most want to see some mechanism for tracking which episodes have been seen. A progress bar at the bottom of the screen shot would be nice.
  • iPhone app crashes relentlessly

    Works perfectly on AppleTV, but I don’t get more than a minute or two into a program on the iPhone app before it crashes. Please update.
  • TVos app is buggy

    I like the selections, but once I launch a movie, the Apple TV control device won’t work - no pause, back up, etc. it is very frustrating.
  • Buffering, buffering, buffering...

    Terrible app. In the space of a half-hour show it stops to buffer at least half a dozen times and often crashes completely. Also not able to view on my Apple TV. I have to do a screen mirror. Too bad. Great shows. But the app is nearly non-functional...
  • Super buggy Apple TV app

    Content offerings are decent, but the app for Apple TV is terrible. It locks up frequently while playing videos, sometimes fails to display the contents of a category, and the search isn’t indexed properly. Additionally, it doesn’t appear to use the tvOS drop down interface to choose audio options. Instead, they’ve implemented a workaround that includes a separate play button on every series’ page for a subtitled version. This is silly and not intuitive when other content provider apps make proper use of the built-in tvOS options.
  • Pleasantly surprised

    Very happy with first impressions of this app - no bugs or odd goings on in terms of set up, use, or fit with my iPad. Of course, the shows and library are the real draw and I look forward to many hours of viewing pleasure.
  • Terrible app

    By Baldrick2
    The app has a wide variety of titles but very little depth in those titles, which is extremely disappointing. The other, and most important issue, is the fact that the app crashes repeatedly and regularly. Then you re-launch and the show starts over. This is extremely frustrating! There is also no auto play feature or the ability to stop a show and return to show in progress. All around disappointing!
  • Great content. Terrible app.

    This problem only seems to happen on iOS. AppleTV works fine, but it is ruining the app. Every time you go back into the app, even if you didn’t shut it down, it brings you to the home page and has no memory of what show you were watching or where you left off. you have to navigate your way back to the show you were watching: search for the show, select the season, find the episode, then remember what point you were at in that show. It ruins the experience. This is a basic feature of any video platform. Remember what and where the user last watched. This needs to sync progress not just on the same device app but also between devices too.

    Awful navigation and continuity. Example: watched two episodes of a program, only to be denied access to any additional ones. Only the first episode is available. Stared at grey, blank screen upon attempting to contact customer support. Great programming but what’s the point when some aren’t available.
