Crave in general appears to be poorly programmed.

I don't have issues with Shaw/Crave, admittedly I use the web app or a Chromecast 95% of the time.

The Crave user interface on Telus Optik is horrible and not user-friendly. I prefer accessing Crave through Firestick or Chromecast.

I use the Crave app on my Samsung tv and the last 9 months it would regularly require reactivating. Sometimes every day. Which was really a first world problem having to sign in on my phone and enter the 5 digit code to authorize. The latest app update a couple weeks ago has seemed to fix that and it’s been good now... until the next update.

I never use the apps on the Telus system. I’d expect them to be the least used and least updated.

Has to be a challenge keeping multiple TV, cable box, iOS, android, chromecast, fire stick, gaming console and web apps all updated and working well across so many devices.

I pay for Crave but never use the app. It's easier to download content to Plex instead of needing to constantly log in and use their crappy UI. The audio and video quality is usually better too.

I have officially given up on “Your Honor”. Could barely stay alert during episode 7. I am throwing in the towel.

I don’t mind your honour but I feel like it was a terrible role for Cranston. Every episode is like a BB parody of him rushing against the clock to avoid disaster and then talking his way out of it. Rinse and repeat next episode.

Anyone watch the Tiger documentary?
Definitely doesn't make him look like a decent guy, and not just with his treatment of his wife.

I've watched the first one, not the second yet.

I have a hard time though with Docs that don't present from both sides. Without tiger can we really say its the whole picture?

I don't want to blame his dad, but I blame his dad. I never knew Earl expected Tiger to be the saviour. And Earl smashing women in his trailer while baby Tiger was mastering his game as a youngster, that's messed up.

With Shaw, but my perspective is different- I only use the Shaw apps and never my smart TV apps. I read too much info about Samsung using bandwidth for advertising on my own TV which you can block but its a pain.

Shaw advertises, but they will anyway when I watch TV, can't remove it by using the smart TV functions.

I don't really see any reason to use my Smart TV functions given the Shaw Apps. TV has never been given our Wi-fi credentials.

My issue with the Shaw apps was that they didn't sync show progress. I do not have a cable box on all my TVs so if I want to pause/resume on a different TV that is not possible with the Shaw app. Maybe it has been updated but I found it to be the worst option of using consoles apps or casting.

Yeah I definitively agree.
Would love to hear Tiger respond to it, but doubtful he does.

There's some stuff in the second episode in particular that bothered me about him, but I won't spoil it since you haven't watched it yet.
