What's New in Version 2.1.2
- minor bug fixes
Marketing destroyed PBS
I can't watch PBS programming anymore. After cutting the cable, I watched the best shows (Masterpiece, Frontline, Independent Lens) through this app. But as of two months ago, roughly, they have larded it with ads at the beginning of every program you choose to watch, and then interrupt programs with (often) two ads, back to back. Worse, the ad bandwidth seems to be so high that ads start to play and then halt. So, you wait and wait watching a still image, helpless to do anything until the ad finally buffers and plays out. Welcome to commercial, network television, paid for with your tax dollars but run by people who evidently care more about accommodating advertisers than presenting high quality programming. PBS was once a high-prestige venue. Remember "masterpiece theatre is brought to you by Mobil"? Short, sweet, and not interfering with the program. Now, it appears that any corporation that writes a check to PBS gets to air a thirty second manifesto, over and over and over. (If I ever watch that sellout Harvard psychologist talk about Prudential again I will slit my wrists). Citizens United has taken over Public television, I guess. Money talks. Programming walks. Me too.
Wish I loved it...
I've had this app for a long time. Love all the shows, but there are many things that are so frustrating about the app itself. Firstly, even though I mark certain programs as my favorite, and also add to my watchlist, the app never saves this information. So when I go back into the app, hoping to "resume" watching a show, it makes me start all over again. Every. Single. Time.
So then I have to watch the same commercial AGAIN in order to start my show. Then when I fast forward to the part of the program I was watching, it makes me sit through yet ANOTHER commercial. If I had the time to sit down and watch the program from start to finish in one sitting, it would be great. But I don't have the time to do that. Not thrilled with this app at all. 👎🏼
Worked great till I updated to ios9
Was my fav app! Used it daily!! Now that I updated to iOS 9 it won't even open. Crashes before it can load! I hope it's an easy fix for you cause I'm really missing it! Was running perfectly! Takes forever to get thru the ads, stops completely have to keep hitting learn more and going back and forth till the ad plays out!
