Hi Ben,

Are you hoping to see air times shifted for your time zone, or have the notifications behave differently? It'd be helpful to know how you would like this to work. Also, which time zone are you in?

Ideally both. I'm in the central time zone.

Currently we do not have shifted air times available for Central time zone. Our default air times are all in Eastern. We are looking into implementing this in the future, however.

Why is this something that is so complicated to implement?

Hi Ben,

There are many considerations when prioritizing features and the difficulty of the feature is just one.

Regarding time in particular, it is more complicated than it may first appear, given the different populations we support, the complicated nature of time zones and Daylight Saving Time, and domestic and international air dates. All of these details permeate our feature set in various ways for both the web site and the mobile app.

Your feedback is helpful in determining which features and bugs are most important to our users, so please feel free to give us contact us regarding this and any other problems or suggestions you have.

Thanks,
Zaz
