IMO it is undesirable and counter intuitive that if i start (for example) S01E03 of Modern Family,
Stop half way...and close
start a client (eg Roku) the next day....look at tv 'next up' (aka suggested)
and see S01E04 as 'suggested' not S01E03 (with the default option of resume from where i left off)
yes S01E03 is under resume...but wouldn't users prefer S01E03 under 'suggested' in preference to S01E04
so the feature request is an option (possibly the default option/or indeed just the default with no option) that
resume tv content is part of next up/suggested (and resume is the default play action in clients).
And of course if there is a resume episode in suggested then the next episode of the show...would not show,
Im trying to think of a reason why people wouldnt want this as default..but cant...
but if there were any naysayers, an option on clients to mark resume content as either complete/watched or not watched/not started) in a simple way...would probably handle them..which i think has its own feature request.
although a side issue to this feature request...such client functionality (to easy manage watched status) might become more useful once a feature to sync content offline becomes available..a although a native client would presumably sync watched status on recconnection, its not 100% guaranteed that synced content would be watched using the official client?
one question..if 'resume' is a subset of 'next up' then why have 'resume'.....
maybe its not required...
one use may be people who do not want tv shows added to next up if they haven't completely watched 1 full episode..
imo it would be better to remove resume....and add such half watched content/shows to next up...safe in the knowledge the client can tag an episode unwatched (and if its the oldest episode (S01E01), then remove the show from next up suggested entirely).
thanks for considering.
