Do people want/need something to tell them what they should be watching or to what they should be subscribing? I don't but curious what others think.
No, I don't either. This is another example showing Tivo and others are concentrating on the "find a new show
" aspect where I spend 1% of my time and don't need help, and they are ignoring the "just help me get to the show/episode I already want to watch and launch it
" where I spend 99% of my time.
I just want something to maintain a list of shows and have 3 different views
1) a "Continue Watching
" view that just has shows I have started watching and have unwatched episodes
. That should be sorted by the last time I watched an episode, with the show I watched most recently at the beginning of the list, since I probably will keep binge watching it.
2) a "Coming Soon
" view that just has shows I have stated watching and there are no unwatched episodes, but new episodes are coming
. That should be sorted by when the new episode is coming, with the earliest at the beginning of the list.
3) a "Start Watching
" view that just has shows I have added to the list but never started watching
. The sort order for that should be user selectable - alphabetically, by order added, by ranking (imdb, rotten tomato, ...)
And when I click on something in the "Continue Watching" list, just take me there.
And when I get done let me go back and quickly mark it watched and go on to something else.
Once you get that working right, then you can spend time on putting your spin on how I can "find a new show" to add to the list
