Huge Disappointment

This App is a huge waste of time. Not worth downloading! I wanted an app where I could watch previously aired episodes of my favorite shows and the app has failed me. Bad Buffering and No Sound. Quits or Freezes intermittently. I have AMC and HBO Go and they work great for watching my shows when I'm on the road. Discovery has seriously dropped the ball when it comes to a quality app where you can watch the shows you have come to love. Poorly Organized Interface and Content along with some technical failures. This App is Crap! The only reason I'm giving it 1 star is that I can't give it no stars. Discovery please fix yourself. I had much higher expectations for your application. Organize shows by season and episodes for easy access. Give me an option to enter my cable provider so that I can have access to the viewing that I choose. I'm not looking for a free ride here, Just looking for another way to watch my shows when I'm not at home.

Mobile tele

If u guys make this app so u can watch all the shows on the appFREE I'd be the best app available! Period. I love discovery my favorite channel by far only channel I ever watched beside animal planet on occasion but the discovery shows are truly true tv imho. I no longer have cable just Internet and am truly depressed I can no longer watch all the discovery shows like I once did. I hope I can watch the new mythbusters and dual survivor oh tethered looks good too idk I'm about to use this app I truly hope I can watch full episodes of the new shows :)

If you love Discovery, SKIP this app!

I am dumbfounded that one of the best networks has the very worst app! No access to full episodes via this app, online or via my Xfinity TV app, which I can use to view anything on network or cable television with the very obvious exception of Discovery Channel shows. The only full episodes available here are Street Outlaws and Sons of Winter. If you want anything other than these two (my favorites are Bering Sea Gold and Goldrush) you have to purchase them through iTunes. It will be a very hot day in Alaska before I pay an additional charge to have mobile access to shows I already pay for on a monthly basis to Comcast I will be raising Cain with them too, to find out why my "watch anywhere" cable access does not include Discovery.
