So I have BritBox for streaming (via RoKu). I discovered that there seemed to be no way to remove a show that one no longer wishes to watch from the "Continue Watching" list. A horizontal list that is at the top of all significant sets of selectors. Not via Roku. I went online to my account to try there - nope. So I contacted customer support and here's what they replied:
Quote:
We did previously offer the option to delete items off of your continue watching list by clicking the X on the bottom right hand corner of the show, although I did receive word from our tech team that the option has been taken down until further notice to make background improvements, I do apologize.

We do hope to implement the feature back into our service in the future but are unsure of a timeframe for this. While it is not a permanent solution we do recommend accessing shows and movies through your watchlist to better manage what has been watched or what you would like to keep/delete. When accessing shows through the watchlist, any shows you have watched will have a line on the bottom to help determine where you are at in a series.

  • First, of course, there's modifications made in the live production version of software.
  • Secondly, there's apparently no horizon whatsoever as to if and when it will be restored.
  • Third, there solution does nothing to address the problem whatsoever - as the "watchlist" will put anything one watches irrevocably on the 'continue watching' list. If you go to a new episode it will update that but it will remain - the list just keeps on growing.
  • This cavalier neglect of the user is the same as I experienced decades ago where the O/S and software for an HP-FTIR Spectrometer was made in UK. Version 7 still with the same bugs*
  • If one browsed a full list of choices (2D matrix) and request to see more info on one, when one goes back they end up at the top of a very long list and must find their place, again

The tradition of badly written software (there's much more wrong with it) with no real thought to debugging lives on!

Rue
Britannia!
