Once again I am moaning about Apple!
My issue is on-going watching of a TV series... A simple task which incidentally Netflix has well sussed.
Once upon a time it took several clicks to get from the main menu in to the TV shows and select the show, but at least at that point it knew which episode you were watching and where you had left off within the episode.
Then, wonder of wonders, the "TV" menu in the Apple appeared, and at power on it would be basically one-click to continue watching what you had been watching, in the right show and the right point in the show. This was finally almost as slick as Netflix.
Now, as you will see in the video, they are being extra special.
It remembers where you were, what series, what episode, and where in that episode. It shows on the main page when you turn it on, offering you "Up next" as "Continue" watching that episode. One click to play it.
But then it goes horribly wrong for no apparent reason. It says you need to install Netflix! If you cancel that you see the series of shows, and the episode you are on selected ready to play. If you select, then again, you have to install Netflix.
If you go up several levels of menu, in to TV shows, pick purchased items, and all items, and scroll to find the show you were watching, you eventually find it is there but is offering to show episode 1. So you then have to find the episode you were watching if you can remember, and play.
It plays, with no Netflix needed, and carries on from where you stopped (within that episode)...
I just don't get it! It makes no sense. It seems to only be some series, but it baffles me how they release such broken code with such serious bugs in it. Seriously, Apple used to be good at user interface - it was their thing.
