for me. For example it you're watching a series, it takes to many separate clicks to get to the next episode if coming back to the app on a different day. Not only too many clicks, but when hitting "down" to get there it often takes you to the wrong place like a different season. I remember Netflix having the same navigation issue years ago, but they fixed it. I use it on a Fire Cube for reference.

going to next episode when one was finished. Also, there are lots of language/subtitles issues which are talked about in the Gomorrah thread. I hope they fix it soon, it’s pretty wack.

the fact "My List" isn't a button on there is egregious

they don't have allll the movies that CC does, but they have plenty, including some obscure stuff. Just wish it was easier to search the catalog, and the Apple TV app didn't crash/buffer as much as it does

Btw they just introduced a $150 yearly plan (basically 2 months for free), I might just give in since I've been using it a lot lately. Just this last month I watched a few Almodovars and Police fucking Story (and Rumble in the Bronx but no one needs to know that haha)

$12.50 a month isn't that bad considering the loads of streaming content on there, plus the fact they'll have some new theatrical releases each month at least til the end of 2021 is another good reason to cop this.

I think I'll look into this when July starts. Thanks for that info.

For no extra fee. Everyone shat on WB for staying firm with releasing their movies on HBO Max but its paid off amazingly. Disney + is lame as hell for the $30 thing. I appreciate HBO not charging extra. That gets my loyalty.

HBO Series are also better than Netflix, now that Netflix cancels everything after a year and only goes three years at the most.

but on fire.

it will rewind but will go way too far or treat me like my remote isn't working where I have to hit it 4 times, then it'll crash.

i usually assume it's batteries or a remote issue but no other app is doing this.

I know what you’re going through. You can. You just have to hit the “back”/“left” button on your device’s controller.
