    Only one problem. This and all the other apps don’t think I have a watchlist most of the time.
  • Ideology Free Education - Refreshing - Astounding

    On a whim I tried “The Great Courses” threw the new RoKu TV we purchased. I have learned so much about who I am as a person, my place in history and the history of civilization that I am stunned. The sciences, our universe, the human brain I could keep going. There are so many quality courses to choose from. I intend to master them all. The lecturers are gifted award winning speakers - they are the cream of the crop in their respective disciplines and you can tell that because they articulate so well in a layman’s terms complex concepts especially in the sciences. They definitely are not boring speakers and their sense of humor will keep you glued to your seat with the wealth of information flowing from their style of lectures. This will be a lifetime commitment of learning for me. No political agenda just excellent scholarship of knowledge given as a gift back to you form very talented teachers. It’s the way college should be. So in a way “The Great Courses” is the lost art of teaching revived that will literally bless your socks off no matter what interests you. One more thing. The various courses so compliment each other you really will get a very rich well rounded education if your hungry for knowledge that’s PURE Learning with no political leanings. That is incredible in this politically motivated US culture. Well, after reading my review I’m sure some will think I’m a simple Dotard! Stay tuned! Not for long!
  • The Best Gift

    As a lover of the Great Courses for many years, my wife gave me the Great Courses Plus as a Christmas gift and it has proven to be the best gift one could ever imagine! What other gift could give you a chance to listen to the brilliance of Daniel Robinson or Rufus Fears any time you have a free moment? What other gift avails the treasures of the world’s greatest museums, the insights of quantum physics, and vistas from continents and cultures you would otherwise never see? Plus has given me Mozart, Botticelli, Einstein, and Gandhi, right on my iPhone. I’ve watched Sam Wang probe the mysteries of neuroscience and Charlie Kimball throw open the secrets of the great World Religions. Ethics, epistemology, political science, psychology, and esthetics have been examined by the great thinkers from Socrates, Plato and Aristotle to Descartes, Darwin and Jung and I witnessed their truths from the comforts of my favorite chair while sipping coffee as my cat slept on my lap. I have sensed the pain of Lincoln trying to save the Union, the struggles of King striving toward freedom, and the courage of small farmers facing foreclosure in one of the wealthiest nations in the world. To say these are inspiring, is akin to calling Hiroshima a minor skirmish! The Great Courses Plus is the best gift I have ever received, with the single exception of my wife!
  • College lectures in my family room!

    An occasional purchaser of Great Courses over the last 20 years I am won over by the Great Courses Plus! For $15 a month I can renew acquaintance with my college favorites or learn new subjects like Mindfulness in my family room, in my car or on my patio! I can synchronize the lectures on as many as four devices - my phone, my tv and my Kindle. You may stream or download, listen or view! This is high level college courses alongside cooking techniques and health information - this is for anyone who, like me, who enjoys learning and thinking!

    If you love learning and watching new and interesting programming, don’t wait for the History Channel or National Geographic to fulfill those needs. With the Great Courses you get factual information, experienced professors and engaging videography to keep you entertained and learning for weeks. If they had a life-time membership, I would want to be first in line.
  • Great Content, Horrible App

    The TVos app is incredibly slow. Each version of the app keeps getting worse. The content is fantastic, though.

    One way to improve your mental health as well as helping those who struggle s with mood stability.
  • Excellent content. Poorly designed app.

    The content in the app is fantastic and worth the subscription price. It even makes the app’s design flaws tolerable. But the flaws are obvious and increasingly annoying. This app is not designed with usability in mind. The home screen has 22 categories. They are mostly categories like “Great How-tos” or “Employee Favorites”. Why on earth is “In My Watchlist” not one of those? Why would they make it harder to watch the next lecture in a course I’m in the middle of than to start some randomly suggested new course? Why bury courses I’ve already said I’m interested in behind three clicks of navigation? They recently added “Continue Watching” to the home screen, but it’s comically badly implemented. Say you are half way through a lecture. It will be on the Continue Watching list. OK, great. You then click it and finish the lecture. After it’s done, you return to the home screen. What would you expect that course’s “continue” to be now? The next lecture, right? Well, no, it’s still the lecture you just watched, half way through. I guess they think if a lecture is good, it’s good enough to be watched again. And in this day and age, why don’t they support profiles? Everybody in my family enjoys the courses, but we don’t have the same interests. My wife and son have their tastes, I have mine. Let us each have our own watchlists. These aren’t revolutionary ideas. Just look at Netflix or Hulu and follow their lead.
