Many Improvements and Great Programing

Terpsichorean Kat

As the updates flow the previous tech issues are resolved. I enjoy and follow many of their unique but timely (no pun intended) series. Oak Island, Knightfall, Vikings, and Forged in Fire all offer a peek into worlds that history books describe but paint only poor shadows of the people and events of the times. These series allow the viewer to realize that even legends are human, with all the pratfalls of our condition. For history to live on it must be reexperienced by the living in some way. I feel the programming on this channel strives to that goal.
I also give them kudo’s for producing shows in which the cutting edge researcher’s investigative paradigm falls under ‘Forbidden History’ or possible conspiracy theory. Yet, by the end of the series (I verify the purported data when it’s available to the public to determine any issues or theories counter to those presented) I support the conclusions of the researcher.
This is the kind of TV I want to see-keep up the great work! 😺

Fix the commercial interruptions!


I downloaded the app and tried watching a show to catch up on it however I was only able to get through half the episode. The episodes are interrupted by commercials every five minutes. At one point I there were five commercials back to back and then the screen went black without the episode resuming. I then had to close down the app and reopen it to watch my show. The video resumed without issues, unfortunately it was the commercials that started playing again and not the episode. The same thing repeated itself, several commercials and then a black screen! I repeated the process twice more with the same results and then gave up. There's no point creating an app like this if these are the results! Don't waist your time downloading it!

Mostly commercials.


I like several of the shows on the history channel and this is a way to catch up on those i have missed. But the number and repetition of the commercials has driven me off of this app. I too have experienced the black screen malady but i had to delete the app and reload it to regain control of the app. I thought seriously about deleting the app altogether but haven't done so yet. However, i have not used the app since that time principally because of the number and repetition of the commercials. I was no even able to fast forward through the commercials nor even be able to see just how much time they ran. Sorry! If i need the memory this will be the first app to go. How are they going to get their commercials seen if the viewers do not use the app?
