Upcoming Changes to SparkPeople.TV

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Hello, everyone!

We're making some changes to the website and, as with anything we do, we like to give you a heads up to what's coming. Beginning this week, the "Videos" tab in the navigation bar will be going away. Effective May 15th, SparkPeople.TV will no longer be available. Don't worry, you'll still be able to access all our SparkPeople-produced videos. This change only affects the availability of our partner's videos.

We work hard to offer a wide variety of features on the site, while keeping a close eye on the ones that are most popular and resonate with members. Based on your interaction with SparkPeople.TV, we know our SparkPeople-produced videos are some of your favorites, so we wanted to be sure to  keep those around for everyone to use.

Although this feature is going away, we have lots of other exciting projects in the works! In the coming months, be on the lookout for enhancements to SparkChallenges, the simplification of some features to benefit both current and new members, and new features to help you focus on your goals and maximize your potential for success. We're exciting about what's coming in the near future!

Thanks for your continued support of SparkPeople's mission to SPARK millions of PEOPLE to reach their goals and lead healthier lives!

There are hundreds of free workout videos on Youtube. Some of them are by the same trainers that you found here. Kathy Smith, Jessica Smith, Coach Nichole, Petra Kolber, etc. Just search for your favorite trainer on Youtube. Report

So only SP coach videos will be available? That means 90% of the videos will be gone! Okay, maybe closer to 70%, but it will be a major decrease in videos available. So no more yoga videos, eh? And we'll be stuck with the old, low quality Coach Nicole videos and not much more. Correct me if I'm wrong, SP. I would love to be wrong. Report

I can still access them thru my spark point list. My tracker tab/My Spark Points/down to the blue line that says Articles and resources look for Watch a video on Sparktv

Likely this will disappear soon, but as of 4/30/18 its there.

Like many I use YouTube mostly though I do some from Sparks.

It looks like the tab is already gone. I did find a way to get there in my tracker tab then my spark points. Report

I appreciate your efforts to always keep things "fresh"--hopefully without TOO many changes for those of us who don't adjust well to change :) Report

I was like @SPARKPEOPLE1951 where I bought one of the amazon fire devices to play the SparkPeople.TV and it never did work. The SparkPeople videos are okay, if you can find them... evidently the www.sparkpeople.tv link works until May 15th, even if you can't find it up above under the "videos" tab. As always, I get more benefit if the videos are captioned. Report

Wow I brought Amazon Fire TV that didn't seem to work with the Spark People TV. I am getting a new smart TV delivered today- I was hoping the video's would be easier for me to access. Report

I'd like to see 'trying on clothes' (at the store) under the exercise section. You know it's got to burn calories! Thank-you 😀 Report
AUNA_VISTA 4/26/2018
This isn't really informative. It's just a short, short article, to say you're once again doing things without our input. One day, you'll have the website stripped down to just allow your members to blog only. Report

Thanks for the headsup. I love Kathy's stretching, balance and Pilates. I understand changes are inevitable. Hoping to see another dietician on board also with positive keto/paleo/lowcarb up to date information for those that choose that way of eating. Report

I've recently come back after many years of being away. One thing I've always wanted to see has been a more interactive post and reply structure in team forums similar to that used by Facebook, where hitting reply results in replying directly to an individual's comment instead of having it show up in one long undivided thread. It would make discussions more dynamic, interesting, make it easier to get to know people, and possibly enliven the teams. (No offense, but my reaction to teams I've viewed so far since coming back has been "yawn, boring.") It could also allow the option of only receiving a notice when there are replies to your specific comment rather than subscribing to the whole discussion. Report

Thanks for the warning Report
MORAVIANSTAR 4/26/2018
Uh oh! I always get a little nervous when people start talking about "exciting new changes". One thing I would truly love to see is the return of the personal goals board to the start page. Wonder if the start page could be made to be somewhat "customizable" so we could choose what we want to have, at least from among a few things. I do love the SP videos - Coach Nicole helps me out often when the weather is yucky and I just don't want to leave home! Report

Yes please update. I love spark tv but it is seriously outdated. All your premium exercises could use an update. Need some fresh exercises it is long over due Report

Thank you for the heads-up. I think one reason that I didn't use SPTV as much as I would have liked is I found mostof the partner videos too hard for me to do. I had the site bookmarked, butt rarely used it for this reason. Looking forward to just Spark videos. Thank you guys for everything you do. Report

Going to miss SP TV but I really don't use it much. But sometimes I do. While you are in the mood to make changes--- How about adding some new emoticon to our selection: Like--- I GOT THIS, U GOT THIS, I WILL DO IT, LET'S GO, (need some more that are more positive sounding) Plus some new images or updated ones would be great!! Thank you! Report
