Is ABC seriously that worried about lost ratings from iPad app users?
The new update looks pretty, and I suppose it is nice to have all the throwback shows if you want to watch something old. But I want to watch what was shown last night that I missed, and I cannot find that. I have to remember which show it is, look under the genre, and since they don't know alphabetizing, look through all on the list. Wears me out. That should be the first show promoted. The NBC app first page shows all the shows recently broadcast in reverse chonological order. Makes that so easy.
I also am really annoyed that if you watch broadcast programming over the air without a TV provider (without the right TV provider, because some don't count), then you cannot watch them on the app. I get that the ratings system is out of touch. I was recently a Nielsen house and they do not want at all to count online and app viewing when figuring ratings. If online views counted as much as broadcast views, or even counted at all, then ABC wouldn't do this. They wouldn't want to ALIENATE and ANGER those of us who cannot watch at time of broadcast but still want to enjoy their programs. They already have commercial sponsorships for online and app shows, but obviously don't feel they are getting enough money for them. It is rotten.
Oh well, I'll have to wait a year or so and watch Scandal or The Middle on Netflix or something. Or maybe NEVER, now!
The commercials break this app
Like the idea that you can catch up on shows (not a new idea or concept), and I very rarely watch tv. The shows I do want to watch I want it to be smooth, and this app does not provide that. The commercial breaks (slightly more than a normal tv show would have) are atrocious because the commercials freeze and you cannot advance your video. Then, if you restart the app, you're greeted with, you guessed it, more commercials! Except this time, you then scrub over to where you left off, and are forced to watch....MORE COMMERCIALS. If you happen to actually get to your last viewed spot, the video loses quality and typically then freezes during the next commercial break.
How can you make a product this pis$ poor in the 21st century? Let alone in the age of independent developers making billion dollar apps and companies from their basements?
ABC is looking for a cash grab. Give them the 🖕🏼by deleting the app.
Commercials Freeze and never load
There are a lot of commercials while trying to watch a video. It's kinda annoying but my main problem is that they won't load! Before the recent update the commercials took a little bit but they would eventually play. Now I'm lucky if they ever load at all! I've had to restart the app a couple of times cause the add stopped loading in the middle and I just had a black screen. And even that didn't always work. Like right now I decided to stop trying and just go to bed.
Please fix this bug and allow the adds to load and load quickly! Also maybe considering cutting the add breaks to 4 commercials rather than 6 cause each commercial is like 2 minutes which if you times by 6 that's 12 minutes. You have 5 of those in one show. That's an extra 60 minutes of watching. My show is on 42 minutes to begin with. That's excessive.
