I travel. Quite often it’s to places that do not have internet or cellular service,
The feature that would help me the most is the capability to download shows to my iPad before I leave home, taking the show with me.
My thoughts on how this would work is one of two ways:
- In the Channels UI I would click a download button, and the show would arrive in my TV app in iOS.
- In the Channels UI I would click that same download button, and the video would show up in the Channels app in iOS. The .edl file would get transferred with the show, and the commercial skip settings that I have set in the app would be honored when I watch the show.
And of course, there would need to be some file management type stuff for deleting watched shows, etc…
Every other commercial app (TiVo, Netflix, Prime Video) has this type of feature that allows you to take the content with you. It seems to be missing from Channels.
