  2. Rohan Doshi-avatar

    While the app and the content is great, the subtitles are almost always out of sync. Please fix this.

    Needs channel integration with Android TV Home Screen and Live Channels app. Otherwise, great app.

    Cute experiment.




    Amazing content

  15. GARVIT GUPTA-avatar

    Content is very very good but quite less. App could have been better. There is no way to download the content or to see in offline mode. I can't understand when you are providing videos then how can you not provide to view in offline mode.

  16. Dulo Collins-avatar

    Great content but seriously need an offline mode.

  19. Erik E-avatar

    Very nice app with insights packed in attractive short videos. Please update the content more often. And it would be nice if you could add an option to watch the video offline.

  20. Rachit Jain-avatar

    Content is good. Technical stability of the app is very poor

  21. A Google user-avatar

    Good diverse selection of short films.

  22. Jonathan Farrington-avatar

    Jonathan Farrington


    Useless. Needs subtitles and portrait mode.

  23. Paul Whelan-avatar

    Good app with interesting content. Simple, elegant interface which looks great on android TV. Just a couple of problems, I can't turn off the subtitles and the daydream /screensaver function of android TV activates even when I'm watching a video.

  24. jatin sinha-avatar

    I want to access all the films using filters like I can on Desktop. But I can't. Forget about filters ... I can't even access all the films.. and there is not even a single option tab :/ With The Economist we expect more!!

  41. Edozie Uka-avatar

    Most useful app I downloaded in years

  42. mannbarry2-avatar


  43. J Liverpool-avatar

    I love this app but gave it four stars because it does not have the ability to choose the streaming setting eg. 720p, 480p, 144p. Not everyone's internet connection is excellent. Also the ability to resume videos from the point you last watched would be good along with a save video option

  44. A Google user-avatar


  45. Ayush Kumar-avatar

    Good app, needs chromecast support

  46. Serge Chaly-avatar

    Incorrect aspect ratio which impossible to change manually
