3.0 out of 5 stars It's a teaser! July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
They only allow you to watch about 1 to 3 minutes of each program. It's like a movie trailer making you want more so you subscribe to your cable network.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just clips August 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
Just promos for the cable channel. Not a real app. Interesting stories but they are really short clips.
Maybe better if the stories were full length.

1.0 out of 5 stars Permissions July 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
Why do they need so many invasive permissions, including run at start up and send sticky notes and more??? Tired of apps running roughshod over our privacy!

5.0 out of 5 stars I hope this is not the only one they do July 9, 2013

I lived in New York State before moving to Florida and the section on this app is the best. There was information I never knew about the state. If the Smithsonian Channel does any more even if it is not free I will have them all on my Kindle Fire. Ozziefin

1.0 out of 5 stars Permissions... July 19, 2013
Start up, open sockets, broadcast stickies...why?! It's Smithsonian, does it need ad dollars off us that badly? They should offer it free to interest us in their channel or charge for it but not try to backdoor us like that. Come on, Smithsonian.

Verified Purchase
Pretty Good.It's not the BEST but for free..you really can't beat it. I am hopeing that new stuff is added frequently because if it is only what's on there..then it could get boring fast.
