I am ruuning Beta 4.0.5.
I understand the idea is to display where shows can be streamed when we select an item from the “Progress” list display, but there are several problems with what is being shown. I will give some examples, and describe the problems with them.
In the preceding display, “Paramount” is shown with a purple background. This button really links to HBO Max and should say that instead of Paramount. All the purple Paramount buttons seem to really be HBO Max (or the new Max) links. They should say that.
The “Amazon Video” button just links to a place where we can buy the videos on Amazon. Since we know we can buy pretty much anything on Amazon, this is not really useful. If it were free to stream on Amazon Prime Video (still with the cost of subscribing to Amazon Prime), it would make sense to show that.
I don’t really see the value of showing “Google Play” at all. We can buy apps that can stream it there, but is that really useful to list here?
Another example follows:
Here “Paramount” is listed with a green background. The link is really for “Hulu”, and that is what the button should say. All of the green “Paramount” buttons seem to really be Hulu buttons.
Same comment about “Amazon Video” and “Google Play” as above.
One more example:
Here the “Disney+” button takes me to a web page offering a Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ bundle for sale. This show is not available on Disney+ at all. It is available on Hulu, which is not mentioned here.
Here we finally have a blue “Paramount” button that really goes to Paramount+ where this show can be streamed. Only the blue “Paramount” buttons are correct, but they should really say “Paramount+”
Same comment for “Amazon Video” and “Google Play”.
I’m not sure where you are getting this information, but it would be much more useful and accurate if you just showed what “Just Watch” lists as the available streaming services for a show. I honestly find this listing of streaming services to be almost useless. It is much more helpful to press the "Just Watch: button.
And I still think this page should list the broadcast network, as I documented before.
Or just go back to the display you had before the beta 4 release, It was more useful, at least for me.
Thanks for reading.
