Unknown status of a possible future feature to the network's app[edit]

This edit adds the claim: "It is also currently unknown if Boomerang will have a similiar feature of the offline download-to-go like what Netflix has."[1]

The source is an answer to a question posted to the channel's support site, "Can I download episodes from Boomerang to view when I am offline?" the answer is, essentially, no but they're working on it.

First of all, it is not "currently unknown". You do not know.

Next, that a feature does not exist is rarely, if ever, encyclopedic. (For example, the vast majority of cars are not available as rechargeable hybrids. Those that are, we mention. Those that aren't, we generally don't.) If Boomerang not having downloadable content is worth mentioning, independent reliable sources will discuss it. An answer on the support page discussing an app connected to the channel is trivial.

Finally, "similiar [sic] feature of the offline download-to-go like what Netflix has" is a mess. Nothing here compares the possible future option to anything Netflix offers. Boomerang does not offer downloading shows for offline viewing. Someone on their support site says they are "working on" adding this "soon". According to every other question about a feature they don't have, they are working on adding those soon too (Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, PS4, Xbox, streaming the network, Spanish, outside the U.S., etc.). (It is unknown if they are working on a rechargeable hybrid, because no one has asked yet.) - SummerPhDv2.0 18:10, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
