So aggravating!!

I love ID channel and for the first several months, I loved the app. However, for the last couple of months it has started acting up. The app will TOTALLY shut down at LEAST once during EACH show I try to watch. Then when I restart the app, SOMETIMES the show I was watching will appear in the “Continue Watching” category, but more likely, it’s not there. So then I have to locate the show again, and start it from the beginning, and TRY to remember where I was. Then I must try to locate this point, and more often than not, it takes 3-4 times skipping through the show; as a result, I must then endure a series of 5-8 ads each time, which ends up totaling anywhere from 15-24 ads BACK TO BACK before I am FINALLY able to resume the show.

The LAST time it crashed in the middle of an episode, when I reloaded the app and went to resume watching, there were red keys on EVERY show and NOTHING would play, due to “parental control services technical issues”!!! I was still signed in with my cable provider, and there was absolutely NO WAY on the app nor the website to set or turn off parental controls!! I ended up having to completely uninstall the app and reinstall and reactivate it!!

These issues have made my time spent watching the app SO FRUSTRATING, to where it’s very difficult to enjoy watching the shows! Please, PLEASE work these bugs out quickly! I see from other reviews a majority of these problems have been occurring for several months....


Used to be great but...

This app used to be wonderful on my AppleTV box, but something has changed. While I love the shows and have had no problems with anything crashing, I have huge problems with the ads. I don’t mind seeing commercials; I know you need the ad revenue. What I take issue with are the commercials that are meant to be local to one area, yet are put out nationwide. I live in southeast NC, yet I’m getting ads about the mayoral election in New Orleans, some energy referendum (Line 3; whatever that is) in Minnesota, a birthing center in Pennsylvania, and a hospital in New Jersey. None of these remotely apply to me. What’s even more irritating is getting the same irrelevant ad FOUR times in a row. I swear I can recite the Minnesota farm ad. “There are over 75,000 farms in Minnesota, generating over $75 billion in economic...”. If these kinds of ads continue to be broadcast to me, I’m going to have to stop using the app. I’d be happier if the ads were even REMOTELY local for states like VA or SC or TN, but the closest ad is over 500 miles away. FIX THIS ASAP!!!!


Was great...

I’ve had this app for YEARS! It’s been awesome up until the past year or so when it was decided that you had to log in with a cable provider in order to access the entire app. Now I can’t log in with my cable provider, even though it works just fine with all of my other tv apps, because it’s not on their list of providers. Also they have their shows blocked on demand on my other tv apps too because I can’t log into their app. I absolutely LOVE the ID channel and I’m extremely upset that they wouldn’t have the same list of providers as all the rest. I’d happily pay to have the full app experience if they aren’t going to add the providers. I just wish they would do something because this is getting really old. Btw, my provider is DirectTV NOW through my Apple TV and I pay for all of my other tv apps. They also don’t crash like this one does and don’t have the ridiculous amount of commercials.
