Has become one of my favorite channels

I prefer to choose my programs instead of watching what Neilson picks. Lots of great shows are canceled for reasons that have nothing to do with the quality of the program. I don't watch sports, Fox News, Children's TV. But I love Sy-fy, ID, History, A&E to name a few. I hate having to watch reruns that others pick for me. But, I have shows that I can and do watch many times. Keep up with the future and let the people watch what they want. I will watch 10 minutes of commercial to at the start of a show to be able to watch an episode straight through. Channels would make a lot more money making it easy for people to watch what they want on their schedule rather than a network schedule. With digital counting it would be easy to track gross numbers watching and gage popularity. It's the future and I for one am ready for a change inn the way we watch TV.

Your repetitive commercials are driving me insane!

I have been using apple devices for many years and this is the only review I have ever posted. I'm mentioning that so you understand how frustrated I am. I'm a big fan of your programs especially Vikings. I have been looking forward to catching up on the last 3 episodes on my Apple TV. The problem is you keep repeating the same commercials over and over again to the point that is driving me crazy. Especially that Jason Stratham (who I was a fan of) one for LG(who's tv's I love). I swear it has played 100 times in the last 2 hours sometimes 3 times in a row! The music of the commercial is like finger nails on a chalkboard by now. Had I seen it once it would've been fine but after the 20th time I'm pulling out my hair and it has literally made my head hurt. My excitement for catching up on one of my favorite shows has giving away to the feeling of insanity that I imagine one can only find by being tortured by the "Chinese Water Torture" method. Please stop playing that commercial and have more then 5 or 10 played.

Love shows, but frustrating app!!!

This app is behind almost every other video streaming app. Here's why. 1). Even with iCloud enabled, it NEVER tracks where I was in a show or if I've watched it before. That means if i stop watching and continue tomorrow, I have to find where I left off, and watch 20 commercials in the process. Plus the circle knob on video slider doesn't respond to touch often. 2) while watching commercials, there's no way to return to home page. 3). While watching commercials, there's no indicator how many I have to watch 4) there's no way to remove commercials, even if you want to pay to do so. Hey history, user lives matter. Figure out how much ad revenue you make per user, then allow users to pay that much to not see ads. You're not valuing our time (15 minutes of commercials per show) says you don't value your users. 5). Video pixelates all the time, audio gets out of sync, or drops altogether, even though I have 60mbps connection. Then I have to force close the app, which look at #1, because that happens.
