Hi there,

So often I see a title of a film or series or docie that I want to watch, often going in and reading the about, and then findIng that it is only available in mostly Canada and United States...This really disappoints me and I just want to know why this is? Surely we should all be able to watch the videos no matter where we are from ? Why are some limited and some not? I thought this was World Wide TV? Unless I have missed the blue print somewhere - but I find it really annoying...and something that really makes me consider paying for the subscription.

Kind regards,

One problem I have that is really frustrating is that when I click to read more than a one liner about the video I am about to watch, the larger paragraph appears (which I really want to read) but it flips right into the video leaving me NO TIME to read about the video beforehand--to see whether I choose to watch it or not. Please let these overviews of the video stay on longer so that we can read them. I also do miss the Search function you had before. I wish you had full list of the names of the videos and that we could click on the name and get the video page with the review of it. I have so little idea which videos come under which category (except for the food and nature ones). Many are repeated in different categories. I think we viewers are baffled by this organization. We do want the Search function returned, and I'd like a written out list of all videos, alphabetically listed, containing the names of the main interviewees. That way we will be able to find what we are looking for. Thanks so much. Many videos seem to need buffering all the time. I don't know if this is your problem or mine, but it is really frustrating. It didn't used to do this. Can you clear up some of these problems please? Thanks. I am a huge fan, but with the new frustrations, I can't take the time to find what I'm looking for.
