- Apple Watch App for iPhone
- Performance improvements

Quality design and content.
I watch videos on this app around once a week or so, usually when new ones are uploaded. This is a must for history buffs, science geeks, and those who simply want to study and admire God's beautiful creation and the fallen state of man. My favorite feature is the full episode category.
Love this app! I have the actual channel on my tv but I like this because I could just browse and see stuff without having to record it or be on tv a certain time.
I use this app every day.
Very entertaining and informative with great content. I wish this channel was included in my cable service.
