A bunch of the On Demand offerings on the app are locked out to me telling me I need to subscribe even though I do already - like Showtime. Also some Fox stuff is locked out and we all get Fox. Seems like a work in progress. I tried to use the filter option for sports and nothing showed. That leads me to this little rant:
Instead of adding all this stuff to the app, why doesn't BHN concentrate on giving the main user guide/interface on the STBs more features, functionality and options. I pay BHN a lot of money every month to watch TV on my big screen, not on some little 4-9" screen. So I don't understand why more time and effort isn't spent on the user interface. A big deal is being made how the updated app now has the Last 10 channels viewed feature. So what?! Put that feature in the main user interface where it can be of use!
As a former DirecTV customer, I can say the DirecTV user interface blows BHN's out of the water. Not even close on options, functionality, ease of use, picture quality for PPVs and On Demand, etc.. BHN seems to be taking features away instead of adding features - like PIP, for example. For me personally, watching more TV out of the house is not a priority (I watch too much when I am home) so I am not really sure the attraction there. Anbd even D*'s app allows you to pull up a virtual remote control to access all the functions the regular D* remote has.
Anyway, rant over, for now!!
