The Crave.ca Help and FAQ has this blurb:

Quote:

What is Continue Watching?

This is a list of the titles you began watching but didn’t finish. You can resume these videos where you left off. It also adds the next title in a series to this section when you reach the last 45 seconds of a video in a series. It can be accessed through ‘My Cravings’ and then clicking on the ‘Continue Watching’ tab. To delete a title from this list, delete the title from your ‘Watch History’.
Unfortunately, on my Crave account, deleting titles from "Watch History" did not delete them from "Continue Watching".

Implemented Autoplay

I like that the app now autoplays when watching a series. However, it autoplays prematurely and there is a no way to stop it. Please fix.

Hi Katelyn! We apologize for any inconveniences experienced. Kindly contact us at [email protected] with the list of TV Shows you observed cutting off too early so that we can fix it immediately. Continue to stay tuned. Thanks
I believe I will try to compile a list of Crave issues I am experiencing and contact Crave Support, with the [perhaps misguided] hope for a helpful reply. :confused:

Yeah, I'd seen that, but never found My Cravings on my Fire Stick. I'd assumed it wasn't there - but I use it all the time on Android.

Where did you see it on the Fire Stick?

I spotted that the latest (2018) season of Doctor Who has been made available in the last day or two! That might interest someone.

But not the 2019 New Years Day special.

@nfitz in case you missed it, I created a separate thread for Bell Media's monthly press releases:

Crave Schedules Including HBO, Starz, Showtime and Movies

Sorry about that. I was switching between my different devices/platforms that have Crave installed and posted information that was not applicable to the FireTV stick.

I'm only interested in the Crave streaming service - that thread is mostly broadcast information on the rebranded TMN subchannel and the other subchannels. Even if I was reading it, I'd be unlikely to spot the Doctor Who reference in a footnote way down the page!

Shouldn't each subchannel have it's own thread? Or if you take the other approach, should the Amazon subchannels like HayU and Acorn be merged together? What a fluid world we are currently living in ...

Dr.Dave 2019-06-15 06:20 PM

@nfitz All the programming in that thread is available through the Crave streaming service. If you don't have the HBO add-on or the Starz add-on, the bold headings make it easy to skip those sections. As you said, most people watch that programming through a TV provider and the Crave streaming service is now included in most HBO TV subscriptions. Yes, Bell is blurring the lines, but both types of viewers can find the info in that thread. I thought that was the best organization considering the way Bell Media issues its monthly Crave press releases.

BTW Amazon doesn't control the content on any of its third-party channels. That decision is made by hayu or Acorn or Corus.

Not the main Crave service. Looking at the thread, most of it is the HBO, TMN (Movies now I guess) and other subchannels. Much of the chatter in that thread seems to be about HBO stuff, like Deadwood (wow, I didn't expect that to ever come back!). I'm just not going to notice Crave streaming stuff in that thread, not in the streaming forum!

So I'll continue to mention stuff related to Crave streaming here. Not sure why that's a problem.

All the back episodes of Veronica Mars just appeared on Crave! I had been considering grabbing the DVD a couple of years ago, to see if I could interest my daughter in it.

Season 4 starts in about a month.
