Customer Reviews

Great Channel App!!

Love this app! This allows me to catch up on all my favorite shows, as well as find new ones, really makes up for the lack of "On Demand" content from my cable provider.

The only real drawback is the slider-style controls, very hard to fast forward or rewind to a specific moment in the show. Maybe add a 10 second rewind button like a certain streaming app... If they could fix that in an update soon it would get all five stars from me.

Happy I finally signed up

There are a few commercials, but they're short, may be 1 or 2, then right back to the program. My provider hasn't made a contract with History (and the other associated channels), but I signed in and got the episode I wanted for free. I can fish around and get benefits without being connected through my provider. Thank you History. I have been a fan for years.

Great App, Great Shows 2 many commercials

I really like this app as it allows me to watch so many great shows that I am unable to catch on satellite. I seem to be getting more and more commercials every time I watch a show. It starts out with a 30 second ad, then 120, 160' 180 and now I keep getting pop up ads to download game apps. If I wanted to play games I would not be watching The History Channel on my iPad. Thanks.
