  1. Thank you for adding Resume, now can you remove the shows I don't actually watch

    Now we have the Resume Episode section Which I thank you all very much for adding.

    What I've noticed is that there are shows on there I have no interest in. I suspect they are the shows that View has attempted to autoload. These are of no interest to me and only clog up the nice new Resume feature you have added.

    Please consider limiting the Resume feature to shows we actually choose.

  2. The original date and time of a TV episode

    @ Hulu.com, when I put the cursor on a TV episode, there is a little pop-up that tells me the original date and time that it aired; and a brief description of what that episode is about. And when the episode is playing, there is also a button/link that if I put my cursor on it, there is a pop-up whether there is a next episode. I ask that those features are included here.

    Thank.

  3. Ability to rate a movie as good, better, best, or worst with stars. such as one, two, three, four or five star rating.

    I just watched a really good movie and want to be able to tell someone but there is no way to leave a comment and there also is no way to rate a movie as five stars for awesome. Please give viewers the ability to rate a movie so other viewers will know said movie is worth watching.

  6. Missing Key Features

    Just let the users define their own preferences for what they would like to view or be notified on!! whether it be by favoriting certain shows, or favorite actors, allow user to choose what categories they see when they first launch app! let them choose to only be notified when a specific actor uploads a new video to keep notifications to a minimum! and please add a disable option to stop it from auto playing the next in line video!!

  7. Keep track of where we are in a show!

    It is difficult not to have any sort of queue to keep track of what we are interested in watching, but even more odd is that YahooView does not remember where we are IN a show - ! This is fairly basic, and does not seem to be complex coding. Now I have to actually bookmark a show if I have to stop watching before the end, with something like "Miranda 10:42" so I can try to approximate where I was before... It is a bit absurd.

  8. What is going on with the show? Is it over or will there be another season?

    I suppose I could go elsewhere to find this info on each show... not all of us are intimately familiar with all of the shows we watch. Will it be returning next season? When? Was it discontinued? When? What was the final season & episode? How about a little info? And... for those of us that don't know every single show... what the heck is it about? A general overview, and then descriptions episode by episode.

  9. Is there a way to disable the adds within the video that pop up when you pause the video?

    The ads that pop up when pausing a video are super annoying. It's bad enough you include 3-5 blocks of commercials between each show. Is there a way to disable the other ads? If I wanted to watch THOSE shows I would. I don't need it brainwashed into cause I'm never gonna watch anything I don't want to watch. Do you hate the users that much that you feel the need to torture us this way? And is there a way to keep the video player from popping out the smaller player when we scroll down to get away from…

  11. Please add a setting that allows one to choose not to automatically start playing the next episode of a show.

    Please add a setting that allows one to choose not to automatically start playing the next episode of a show. If I fall asleep I don't like being woken up 3 hours later because videos are still playing, and I'm sure you don't like me taking up bandwidth all night for shows and adds I'm not watching. Thank you

  13. autoplay cancel button

    I hate the auto play thing that slides down from the top after I watch a show. I watch a show full screen, it ends and it gives two options: watch again or goto hulu. I don't want either so I hit escape. It takes me back to the list and the auto-play thing slides down from top threatening to start some random video I don't want to see. There is no obvious cancel button. Only a minimize button which makes the panel slide away but it still plays the random video? Terrible user experience! I am very disappointed Hulu…

  14. Full screen Mode

    Have episodes switch to the next episode while using Full Screen Mode.
    Now the player just stops until you exit full screen mode.

  15. Alphabetical order for shows ~ !

    When we finally get to the informative list of shows (e.g. "British / All Shows") they are in an impossibly random order, not at all helpful for people trying to see what you offer! Why not use the alphabet as you default sort? It has been done before, quite sucessfully...

  16. A queue and expiration dates

    Have a queue like Hulu used to. Let us add episodes that we want and allow us to favorite shows so that new episodes are automatically added. Also have expiration dates on all things so we can plan our viewing experience.

  17. All home page headers should expand like some headers do

    You are only offering people a keyhole as an entry point to your site if you don't EXPAND the scope of the person's drill down so it isn't so narrow.

    So two suggestions:

    First be sure it is very clear that header links vastly broaden the scope of choices of the drill down into the site. The ">" sorta works, but I only discovered it by chance a year after using the similar Hulu page many times....................................

    Second ALL headers such as "POPULAR SHOWS" and "COMING SOON" should not just be text headers, but should be links like "GENRES >"…

  19. Incorporate Tumblr Accounts

    Yahoo owns Tumblr, right? I'm guessing so because of the Tumblr content posted on some shows' pages. I don't know if this is an option already, but will you let those of us with Tumblr usernames sign in with them?
