If so could it be.
I dislike the commercials being redundant as like the posters. The app is good though. I like being able to how is made when I am able. I dislike the hyped up shows that are more like ancient aliens with that same monotone narrator always saying and if so could it be etc. They act like or sound what on earth could it be and no one has ever seen it or heard it. So sensationalistic. It’s a science channel not conspiracy channel. More science based educational shows would be great. The history channel at times can be just as bad with the stupid ancient aliens crap that has been proven false on several accounts but they still show it. How bout a show on the science of garbage can cleaning that would be a great show. I can already hear the same narrator saying this garbage can has never been seen by humans before for over a millions years and if what they find inside is what they think it is, this could be the biggest find in the history of mankind, break for eight minutes of commercials then, then repeat the first twelve mins of the show like you didn’t get it then they say so what could be inside. Yep you guessed it commercials again then repeat last 50 seconds of first break but with differing views then , If it’s garbage this could be a such a dramatic find it could rewrite history. Just sayin. Wish the shows would stop coming across like we are stupid. But all in a great app just had to vent on the type of shows.
Soon to be lost Viewer
I love the Science Channel and having access to it everywhere but there are two main things I want changed on the app. 1. I would pay for streaming without commercials! Sometimes it will play the same commercial 3 times in s row or the exact same commercials in the same order every commercial break. It’s annoying and why I only stream and don’t watch TV. Which brings me to... 2. Disconnect from cable/satellite! The requirement of having a cable/satellite account to access the majority of shows and episodes is complete BS! I will be losing my ability to watch the science channel and any of its affiliate channels next month because I cannot convince my husband to allow me to keep a expensive TV package that he never watches for over $100 a month. I again would pay for this app, Discovery Channel, ID Discovery and Food Network streaming apps in place of a expensive TV package full of channels I don’t watch. **Move into the 21st century please!!** ~ Ashleigh (soon to be lost viewer)
COULD be good... IF...
Decent app. Nothing out of the ordinary from any other app for television. Except... the $&#%* COMMERCIALS!!!!!!!!!! I had started watching on my tv at home and while out with the wife, I figured I’d catch the rest on my phone while waiting for her. I queued up my show then dragged ahead to about where I was, then BAM, Commercial!! Ok, fine. I understand. After 1:59 of commercials, it goes black then BAM, another commercial!!! After waiting AGAIN, my show came on, Thank God. But wait... it didn’t scrub to where I set it. It scrubbed to just past the first 2 commercial breaks. Ok?!?! Let’s try again. I scrub further ahead, BAM!!! ANOTHER COMMERCIAL!!! This one, luckily, was only a minute. Phew!! Time’s up. Back to my sho... BAM!! Another #%*$& COMMERCIAL!!!!!!!! I wait for the last time. Commercial ends... Screen goes black... My show comes bac... FREAKIN’ BAAAAMMMM!!!!!!! A-NO-THER $&^*%#*^^*$& COMMERCIAL. My mind is blown. Brains everywhere. Phone off. Wife’s back. Going home. Goodnight!!
great app but.....
I really enjoy the app I like most of the categories especially impossible engineering but I noticed they ain’t updated enough these shows I feel should be uploaded to the app before or after airing on tv I been waiting for impossible engineering to update for months I just wish they would get better with keeping the shows current on the app my train episodes are still episode 4 should have been 5 or 6 or more by now so on that note it’s disappointing
Sooo many commercials!!
Was thrilled to be able to re-watch some old shows from Sci. But OMG - not only are there 20-30+ ads per show, they play the same ones over and over and over again. And you can't skip them. And if you try to fast forward, it always plays 5 or 6 ads when you stop - only to find that you haven't gone far enough. So you fast forward again, wait for another 5-6 ads, repeat until you forget what show you were watching or what you were looking for in it. If I have to see that dog catch that stupid frisbee in the stadium one more time....Same commercial 4+ times in one show!! Binge watch a series for a few hours and you'll be pulling an Elvis...
Like most others
I really like being able to watch most of my old shows, even though the app likes to pick and chose which episodes are going to be one there today, I can live with it. What I'm starting not being able to live with is all the same commercials. So many, and they are even play before the interval break, so when the actual interval break comes up...you guessed it, another 2:30 minutes worth of the same repeating commercials! Please fix this problem, because, if the app design people actually read these app reviews like we hope you do....You have a lot of the same complaints.
FIX YOUR APP
UPDATE: Stop making ads play whenever you have to scan an ep. I wanted to continue watching an episode that I started earlier, but the app started it over at the beginning. When I moved the slider to try to find where I was at, I got three ad breaks to about :30 seconds of content. That’s a TERRIBLE user experience. This thing is buggy as hell. Episodes routinely freeze at random points; if they do start playing again (which is 50/50 at best) they do so at a significantly lower video quality. (Meanwhile, the commercials are almost always playing at the highest video quality.) I also found an episode of Mythbusters that is improperly linked - the episode marked Killer Tissue Box from Season 3 actually plays the giant speaker episode from a later season.
This is one of the many reasons why pirating has become such a better option again.
Why is there not an option to simply pay for the content? It’s hidden behind the most annoying pay wall of all, a cable television account. Hell, even after paying $100+/month you still have to sit through annoying, irrelevant ads! As many other people have said, we’d pay for the content direct to this company but there’s not an option and until more and more people stop paying for it and either stop watching completely, buy it on another platform or pirate it they will not stop with this antiquated and expensive way of conducting business. Move on the 21st century, please.
Video not controllable with voiceover
When I play a show using voiceover, I have almost no control. I can do 2-finger double tap to pause and restart the show, but that’s all. When I lock the phone and then unlocked it, and re-entered the app, magic tap started playing music instead of the program. The only way I could find to get out of the show was to close the app. Results are similar in the NBC app, so this may be a problem with all video apps Also, when I tried to sign in to verify my TV provider, it opened ratings in the App Store for animal planet go.
Some technical issues, too many commercials
Fix some technical issues and reduce commercials and it’s 5 stars. I expect ads in a “free” app but 4-6 per break is a lot. Issue with signing in through cable provider, never got a response from support but I figured it out myself. Under settings go into ‘tv provider’ and unselect this or any discovery network app. Then go back into app and it will let you sign in.
Rip off in space
I agree with the majority of the reviews I’ve read. I thought I would be privy to shows that are interesting and science related, not the same conspiracy BS shown on television. Once again, shows that could be entertaining and educational are either crap or nothing more than a prop for continual commercials and repetition of the content viewed before the barrage of commercials began. Honestly, the general adult public, as well as children, are not that daft. We are dumping cable due to outrageous cost for lack of content not only on Science channel, but other interesting channels as well, with very little content and endless commercials. A ridiculous waste of time and money.
Nothing but problems with this app on Apple TV. I absolutely love this channel! But the app only allows you to watch a few of the shows. Even though I am signed into my provider and pay for the Science Channel through my cable provider, the majority of the shows are locked. I can watch episode 3 of Unearthed but none of the other episodes. It’s been nothing but problems from the start of this app. To make it worse I have been contacting support repeatedly and have heard absolutely nothing back. Nothing. Not even a confirmation email. So frustrating. Don’t bother with the app for Apple TV. It’s a complete waste of time. So is trying to contact them.
DirecTV provider login issues
I have the SciGo app on my Apple TV and my iPhone 7. I also subscribe to DirecTV and pay $145 for the DirecTV package which includes the Sci channel. I’m logged into my TV provider on the app. When I try to watch an episode onDemand of my shows I get an error message that says that this channel isn’t included in my TV provider package, please contact your provider. I called DirecTV and they said they have no control over your app. Why am I getting this message when I pay for your channel through DirecTV????? Please tell me how to fix this. It is extremely irritating to $145 a month for TV and not be able to watch what I want onDemand on my apple devices.
Oh my god the repeating ads
7 or 8 ads per break is insane. Worse, the same ads repeat over and over. Our high score is 3 ads for the same California 529 plan back to back. Update: The developer says this shouldn’t happen. Oh please. Every other review here points out the same problem. Now I’m seeing smart water ads repeated three times in a row. Admit it, you don’t have any ad inventory, and rather than solving that problem, you’re beating us over the head with the same ad. If your advertisers knew how much I’ve grown to hate them, they’d pull what few ads you have.
Lack of shows
I love the fact that i can select shows to watch that i love on the science channel, but I’m not very happy that certain seasons and shows are constantly locked and cannot be viewed with verizon fios. And that there are only a certain number of the shows available. After awhile it seems like certain shows (seasons) end up being locked that were previously unlocked. Why are the shows/entire seasons locked if the app uses your cable provider to view them?
