Customer Reviews

Great Content... App needs a bit of work

I really enjoy The History Channel and have for years. I was glad to find this app so I could watch shows on my schedule (I'm already really into Alone) Now when the content is streaming, everything is cool. But at the handoff to the commercials things get a bit buggy. First the commercial breaks are too frequent to be as long as they are.i would suggest either shorter commercial breaks or fewer commercial breaks. Second the only time the App gets buggy is during the commercial breaks. Some commercials freeze or you get the same commercial three times in a row. Ill be glad to increase my rating when these issues are resolved, but the content of the shows is worth the minor aggravation with commercials. We know this can be done because other content streaming apps don't seem to have these issues. So step up History Channel, you can do this! Im rootin for ya...

Great needs improvement.

The content in this app is great. Informative, entertaining, etc.

The commercial breaks, however, are a little brutal to deal with. First of all, they are more frequent than what I experience in a lot of other streaming media apps.

As the programs continue, the commercial breaks also seem to get longer and longer - sometimes as much as three minutes long. During those three minute breaks, there are multiple times where I've had to watch the same 30-second commercial three times in a row while the app is filling the time. It's a little mind-numbing.

Great Channel. Poor App

I love the History Channel and most of the shows. The app makes watching them a real pain. In order to watch a 45 minute show I have to endure 45 minutes of commercials. I understand you have to pay the bills but it's a little overboard. Maybe if I could sign in with my provider, ATT Uverse, I could skip commercials, but I don't know because my provider isn't listed.

As far as the viewer goes, the lack of a fast forward button makes it difficult to pick up where you leave off when not starting from the beginning of a show. You can get close by dragging with your finger but close is about it.
