Need full episodes

Animal planet's always been my favorite channel - I usually get sucked in for hours past when I meant to stop being a couch potato due to my infatuation with animals. As for their app; I was ready to DL it to my phone after seeing I'd DL it to my comp a long time ago to move to phone...Until I realized you can't watch full length episodes, or really do anything different then on their website, (btw: anyone w/ a phone that can DL apps can easily access the site too!!). Most networks allow you to view full episodes on their websites - so you guys are already behind there too. Maybe ask whoever's in charge of that to change that then you'll be allowed to change the app... Other then that it needs more shows. Instead of cats 101 how about dogs 101?? Or growing up, or some of those cool night time ones like about the girl who acted like a dog? Or any of the animal cops - bring back philadelphia!!!

Not what I was expecting

I was expecting Animal Planet's app to be kinda like PBS' app with full length episodes and such. But turns out, there are no full length episodes and a very annoying ad bar at the bottom of the page.
Worst of all the videos on there are the same as the ones on their website. Why do we even need an app for videos that are on their website?! I removed it right after I downloaded it and I know the episodes are online because I follow Tanked every week!
Please add full length episodes (Tanked please!) on the app or this app is worthless!

What is the point?

I echo the expectation that, like PBS I could see episodes. We were away from TV, but wanted to watch the Puppy Bowl. Forget it! There were updates of the pseudo game, but no video. Just numerous disjointed segments the do not connect, relate, or otherwise make sense.

This is just a mashup of outtakes, and the emphasis is on mashup! it seems they just want content, but forget about finding something, because the clips are scattered and hard to identify. Make it more rational please, and PLEASE include real content! Otherwise not worth the effort!
