Add programme timings to my calendar?
I like having my favourites list, even if you don't seem to add the favourites tab to the Apple TV app.
What I would like to ask for is a way for me to add my favourite programme timings to my calendar, like if I discover a special debate show and want to remember when it starts.
Keep updating. This is a vital TV app.
In front of competitors.
Brilliant app. Lots of functionality such as AirPlay and download. Also the fact that you now offer an Apple TV app is the cherry on the cake.
Love it but
... can't seem to watch downloaded shows. Keeps getting an error message "dismiss or try again".
Disappointing, especially when I'm on my commute.
