Gusto, Curiosity Stream, TravelXP - so called Discovery replacement channels

Re: Gusto, Curiosity Stream, TravelXP - so called Discovery replacement channels

Having watched Travelxp for a while now, I am convinced that the programmes are so bad even Channel 5 wouldn't air them.

I commend you for having the patience of a monk and a sadistic streak for subjecting yourself to intellectual torture. 

 

Travelxp is a criminal waste of time, effort, energy and resources. I have seen many videos made by polytechnics students of higher quality.

We're still on the lookout for new content and channels. Please be patient with us as we ride out this period together.

Dear Amy

 

Program channels replacements are decisions that should not be taken likely. Much research (apart from fees charged by new channels) ought to have been done prior to making such major decisions. Perhaps a sample of subscribers should have been roped in to test their reactions to the new channels prior to making the official decision to switch. It may cost you to do such exercises but it could save the company/dept the trouble of "fire-fighting" like what you have to do now and should the channels be changed again that in itself is actually more costly? Your subscribers have been enjoying the previous channels/content for quite a few years, the dept in charge, should not make such changes so flippantly without any careful considerations.  

 

That's my 2 cents worth of management advice for your company.

While you're searching for channels, we are paying for them. How long do you expect us to be paying for sub standard content?

It's been months since you brought out these sub standard replacement channels. Even Blue Ant Extreme is beginning to try my patience . I'm watching Doom and it's censored the aliens with pixels. I might as well be watching the Disney channel.
