Offline mode - still slow when there is slow data connection

I always had a problem with your android application when I didn't have good internet reception like in some metro stations. I imagine that the application tried to connect to my servers and because of the bad reception I had to wait for a long time to timeout and see my list of shows/movies. So what I did was to turn off mobile data and suddenly the application showed all of listings

When the new application came out and saw the offline mode I was kinda of amazed because I though that this was the solution to my problem but guess what? No it has exactly the same behavior. Even if I select the offline mode if there is bad reception the listing of shows/movies takes forever and only when I disable the mobile data it shows them.

Why is that? When I select the offline mode I expect the application to behave exactly like this which is there is no data full stop.
