What's New in Version 5.0.13
* Continued improvements to the ad experience thanks to your feedback
Frustrating - Gets worse not better
I've used this app for several years now. Most recently, not only are there 5 ads each commercial break, even if you're coming back to watch partway through the show, but they freeze or start all over again. I was just trying to watch Quantico, which I had paused last time AFTER a commercial break, and I had to watch another 5 commercials. And THEN, instead of starting the show, it started the 5 ads again, and THEN it happened again. At that point I had wasted at least five minutes and was STILL not able to watch my show. Many times, it has happened where the ad froze and I had to swipe out of the app and restart only to have to rewatch the ads. Other network apps don't have this many problems. One other nit-picky thing - episodes are listed from oldest to newest, so you have to scroll through all the episodes of a show to get to most current one. Very frustrating. I expect more.
Needs quite a bit of work
Not what you would expect from ABC. First, the browsing of shows on iOS and tvOS got worse a couple of releases ago. Besides that, some shows go from Episode 1 on the left working up to later episodes, other shows have the latest episode on the left working to episode 1 (the later being preferred).
In addition, quite often, during a commercial break, usually 4 or 5 out of 6, the stream just stops and the commercial stops. Pausing/unpausing has no affect. The show has to be closed and then reopened (and if it remembers where you were), the commercials still start all over again.
And I hate that the app continues to ask me to rate it, even though I already have, turn that off!
Six full ads every few minutes seemed excessive. I rated the app 3 stars and then I had five ads (sometimes two) which is tolerable if I do something else. So I returned to edit my rating to 4 stars. Then I had 6 ads again. I am updating my rating to 2 in the hopes of reducing ads. In other news, the quality is crisp, until the show freezes...on ad 3 of 6, then requiring me to start over...on the series of ads. I am enjoying watching throwback shows. We'll see how this rating effects my viewing experience. I will rule out paranoia. PS. Another update. I'm back to 2 and 5 ads now. Hint: rate low to improve your viewing experience.
