Ad integration...horrific

First, I don’t mind ads. But the sheer number of ads; the “choice” to see multiple or single ads and the repetition of the same cross promotional nonsense makes this format frustrating at best; and a waste of time in the new digital era of media.

I’d love to be fly on wall of the exec meeting discussing ad placements in the app. “Hey lets synergy our cross promotional shows and really...zzzzz!” “Blue sky that idea Farnsworth!!” - seriously, just give me the ad without having me navigate the idiotic menu with a prompt the size of a pea. Give me multiple ads at once! I don’t care about the ads, I get it, it makes you money but why can’t media companies understand user experience should be front and center. Why can’t you just deliver a similar TV experience? Do you get digital is the new TV? No need to make it harder. It’s entertainment. I pay you to immerse myself in nonsense; not to think about what ad I’d like to see especially’s the same stupid ad. Ok I get CW is pushing supergirl by repeatedly showing her thrust out her bosoms over and over; I get CW is pushing Charmed, which btw, I couldn’t figure out which show was which. And both shows aren’t even close to the target demographic of the tv show I am watching. The chance of me watching CW is zero.

Perhaps I’m cynical but I have more hope for a 5 year old exploring play dough than these dumb “tv” execs.

Ruined by greed

This is a well-designed app ruined by deceptive marketing and greed. After it is downloaded, all its shows are available for free viewing for a couple days. Then, without warning, it requires a login to the person's TV provider, a kind of paywall. That's not unreasonable if it were announced upfront, but here's the worst thing: if you have the channel as part of your TV package and log in successfully, many many shows may still be unavailable (in a nontransparent way except clicking them one by one) because of something like "your TV provider has not made an agreement with us for this". In other words, Fox got greedy and wanted an extra fee and the TV provider refused to give in to the blackmail.

My father, in his 80s, loves this channel and was excited to get the app so he could also view shows on his iPad. In the end, he was frustrated and sad and we ended up deleting the app.

Respectfully watchable and affordable quality entertainment

I’m so pleased having a break from the daily burdens of negativity and so appreciate the notifications. Thank goodness for the true effort toward interesting and substantive viewing Nat Geo provides. Family entertainment like this needs more invitations to connect the social connections that is healing to a political and newsworthy repose from terror so prevalent these days. The electronics distractions offer fodder for conversations we’ve missed far too long. Thanks again for stepping up and not quitting as so many of us thrive on the arts and sciences. Keep it up!
