"Are You Still Watching?" Prompt
There is not a way to disable the "Are you still watching?" feature. This feature has always been present, it was just recently that we added the messaging, but the functionality remains the same. Previously you would just be returned to the Live TV Guide or land on an endless loading screen until you interact with the app by reselecting the program to resume viewing. The message was just added to make it more obvious as to what was happening because a lot of users thought that the app wasn't working correctly.
