  1. Besides, If the aim was to better care for portable devices such as Phones, then a better way is to develop a suitable App for those devices... instead of foisting an overly simplistic universal web-app design on *all* devices. Take the case of WatchTCM, it exists as different apps on multiple devices, from AppleTVs to iPhones... and of course a Web site for desktop computers, all co-existing peacefully! The crippling of the schedule in the new Website is nearly fatal to those of us planning our lives around TCM movies! Why, why, why... can’t get the darn thing to display correct times f
  2. Likely web techies at TCM trying to justify their existence... this change is disastrous and done without any consulting, much less beta testing on the user community! Anyone know the email of Ben Mankiewicz to let him know the disaster this Web site change has brought? Maybe he would listen and pass the word to management. —dwd P.S. I did email Support, and though they acknowledge it and later on assert how responsive they are... in the end, tech support seems to do not much!i
  3. Yes, back at the begining of February we had a total meltdown and nothing would play successfully. March was quite normal... but last week, problems have returned. I began having problems streaming the Greta Garbo films midweek. For a while I could I least see the films thru the Web interface, or partway thru the Apps before they froze.. now access is totally broken — both the WatchTCM Apps and Web interface. Right now I can’t even stream the film THE NATURAL which was shown earlier in the evening? Even though it seems useless to do so, I am reporting the problem to Tech Support... they
  4. I wish they would not have played so late the excellent doc THE DIVINE GRETA GARBO... to boot, the doc was not scheduled on WatchTCM. Sigh !!!
  5. Would it make a difference on which cable provider you have? I am on Spectrum! So far, it seems that this weekend so far, all films being added to WatchTCM do not stream at all! Maybe someone with Twitter should reach Ben Mankiewicz to let him know of the problem... maybe he can reach TCM's Tech Support. Nobody seems to be minding the store, sigh! --denis
  6. Hi, as of 16:15 PST the following WatchTCM films are not loading for me STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (1951) SUNRISE (1927) A STAR IS BORN (1937) WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD (1932) On an iPad with the WatchTCM App, the following cryptic error appears “The Operation couldn’t be completed (CDN Token. TokenError error 0.)” I checked the other films listed previously and indeed they do not load for streaming... it seems the outage is quite extensive. Argh!!! 😡😡😡 —denis
  7. I am a huge fan / user of WatchTCM... can’t live without it! However, technical glitches abound... some of them seemingly related to load — maybe the infrastructure hasn’t kept pace with demand. Anyhow, right now both films WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD (1932) and A STAR IS BORN (1937) fail to play on demand! As usual, I have reported the problem to “Contact TCM” ... as usual other than a msg receipt no-one in tech support answers. Some weeks ago, the silent film DR MABUSE THE GAMBLER (1922) also did not play on WatchTCM. I sent Tech Support a daily msg all that week but never heard anything
