TVO's lack of digital compatibility

There's one documentary series I wanted to watch, specifically The Art of Scandinavia, on my Android Box but for some reason the video player on the site doesn't work with the operating system's browser at all, and on Chrome the video only plays for two seconds before the player times out. The series seems to be exclusively on their site since they're not airing it on their channel

Kinda sucks how they have exclusively digital content but its accessibility is very limited. They should have an app on Android/iOS/Apple TV or at the very least on demand deal with the cable companies

Not true. I recorded/watched the third episode earlier this week.

With respect to TVO's digital content, I do agree that accessing it on anything other than a web browser is difficult. Previously (several years ago) I was able to view content via Chromecast, but that no longer works for me.

I suggest contacting TVO and letting them know about your difficulties.

I did that and all I got was this ****ty response. Not one that assured my feedback was recorded and would be taken into consideration
