Please fix! 1/5
You're app and website are extremely frustrating to use to watch anything! There's waaaaay too may commercials and sometimes it plays the same one over and over 6+ times. You have to close the app and reopen it. It shouldn't take over an hour to get through one 30 min episode.
Compared to the other TV Channel apps, this is the worst 1/5
I pretty much only watch this channel for Horders, but there were a few other shows I might check out. The app crashes when you select "Watchlist" in the side menu. Also, while watching a show, an ad showed, after the ad there was a scene I wanted to show my wife, so I went back 10 seconds, which was around the time the show paused to show me the ad, and the ad played again after I just watched it seconds ago.
Update: This app still is pretty bad. It's annoying how often it makes me re-login to my provider to unlock the shows. I use it on Chromecast, and sometimes when I press the rewind 30 seconds button, it starts the show from the beginning. Also, while watching Live PD: Police Patrol, there was a Coventyx ad that I timed and it was almost 6 minutes long...on top of the 3 or 4 other ads it plays during a commercial period. During one 20 minute episode, it played that ad twice. When trying to get back to an episode I watched earlier, it'll start about 10-20 minutes before the part I left off.
Update 2: They managed to make this app worse. It won’t cast on chromecast anymore.
Please fix the ads 2/5
The ads are easily the biggest problem within the app. I can deal with having to watch ads upfront or at various times throughout the program - that's not the issue. What's problematic is if I try and rewind to what was said right as the program comes back from an ad break, I suddenly have to sit through another three minutes of the same ads I just watched. The viewer shouldn't have to sit through an ad break if they've already watched it once. Secondarily, there is no consistent audio level for the ads, so you wind up with blown-out eardrums and peeved neighbors. If those two issues were fixed, the app would be great.
Great App 5/5

I love this app. Glitches are rare, your shows are saved from the last view which makes it easy to return to. I have AT&T and Direct Tv which I can watch on Direct Tv's app using no data BUT I PREFER watching shows directly from the actual A&E app. Would rather use unlimited data watching A&E app than deal with Direct tv's sub-par application.
Absolutely love 5/5
Good App 5/5
By Neen C
Love this app. I get to see my TV shows, on my time.
hope you like commercials!!! 2/5
WAY too many commercials for me!!!
Crashes at every commercial break which forces me to restart the app and then it starts over at the beginning of the commercials and the whole cycle starts over. Would give less than 1 star if I could. (I have the most recent versions n of the app.)
The A&E has my new favorite show called The murder of Laci Peterson. It has some good shows and love that it's freeeeee!! ❤️
Today is 9/17 2/5
No resume where left off
No list of shows currently watching
No data stream quality selection
No low playback to prevent pause buffer
No one click to play video.
No resistance to crash on ad & show
More annoyances than I can think for sure.
Repeated commercials over and over makes me hate the product advertised.
Glitchy and ads 2/5
At times the show I watch, when I start a new episode, it begins sometimes halfway during the episode and I have to rewind and it goes thru the ads instead of back to the episode.
And the ads, my goodness, if you watched the show in its normal setting on A&E, it would be shorter watching on A&E because of the ads. 30 mins on A&E but on this app, it feels like 40 plus minutes just to finish one episode of a half hour. Too many ads. I missed the period where it gave you the option of watching a 3 minute ad or 30 second. Of course I would choose 30 seconds and get back to the episode. Plus if you have to force ads, how about mixing the ads up and showing different ads and not taking so much time.
Or just no ads. You have ppl downloading the app, don't force ads on them when they are trying to watch their shows. Whether it is at work on lunch break or catching up on an episode they missed, or binge watching. You plug in you cable provider (which you pay for) to watch old episodes, why force ads on something you technically pay for with your cable subscription.
Fix your commercial sound volume 1/5
The app is fine, works well, and the programs are good.
The volume on the ads make it very difficult to watch. We have to cut the volume in half every time an ad cuts in.
That's just inexcusable, and will make me stop watching.
A&E is my fave App! 4/5
This app works very well for me on both my iPhone & iPad. It is quite easy to navigate.
I really love that all of my favorite shows & A&E Specials are available. The only improvement that I would like to see would be for more episodes to be unlocked. Especially for satellite & cable subscribers. Often it is easier for me to view my shows while traveling, soaking in tub or late at night. So if more were available that would be lovely. Only Bc I rarely have the time to sit in front of the television & 90% or more of my favorites are A&E shows.
Tbh, this is actually more like a 4.5 star App & could very easily be 5 stars. Thanks A&E - you rock!
It's good bruh 5/5
By Huge hey
Watch ur fav shows here dawg
I love the shows but the app is glitchy. 2/5
I don't mind the commercials because they make it possible to have access to stream the shows, but too often the app will freeze in the middle of the set of commercials. I have to leave the show I'm watching, access it all over again and watch the commercials all over again. It usually takes 3 or 4 refreshes before the app will work properly.
Ad glitches make app useless 1/5
The ad breaks are totally broken. Sometimes the ad will freeze and you have to force quit the app to get out of it. Often this results in watching 15+ minutes of ads at the break.
Love the shows, hate the app 2/5
The commercials are TOO LOUD. Especially the Jimmie John's. I am currently watching my eighth commercial (some repeated) after six crashes/errors. I'm attempting to watch through my Apple TV. I pay for home service and like to use the app when I travel. I spend more time watching commercials and restarting shows than actually watching. Please fix it.
Too many ads 2/5
Love the shows but I feel like I'm watching more commercials than the show.
Cosentyx ad! 3/5
Altogether too many ads, same ads repeated over and over even when given option of a shorter interactive ad. The Cosentyx ad length is ridiculous. Don't plan to use app again due to these reasons.
Are you kidding with these ads? 2/5
By Scooter Girl in a Harley World
An excruciating long ad about a med that most people will never need where every word of the clinical description, contraindications, etc is read to the viewer and drones on incessantly? Seriously?
Great app! 5/5
My favorite go-to is Scientology; The Aftermath.
Ads Ads And oh my more Ads 4/5
If you couldn't tell from the title, there's a lot of ads. Also I see other people have the same problem of the app saying there is a required update then no update being on the AppStore? I'm not sure on that one but besides the few little problems a good app
Decent app ruined by ads 1/5
This is so excessive, it's not even funny. I sat through a drug commercial that lasted 4 min! Twice! I get that you need revenue. But if you over-do it, then "ain't nobody got time for dat".
Commercials are beyond long. 2/5
The commercials are insane they literally read every symptom or issue with a medication and it lasted forever. I'm normally pretty patient but I do not need to know every detail about coesyntx. Come on, get real A&E.
Always Getting Kicked Out 3/5
I enjoy the shows, but when using the app, I'm always getting kicked out, making it difficult to watch just one episode.
Commercials commercials commercials! 1/5
It also doesn't help that the VOLUME OF THE COMMERCIALS IS INSANELY LOUDER THAN THE SHOW YOUR WATCHING! I have to mute them every time!
Too many ads! Looooong ads too! 1/5
The ads are way too long. There are too many ads. Going to uninstall this app. By the way, the ads did not convince me to purchase the items. Annoying!
Needs a lil work 2/5
Too much buffering and too many commercials
TERRIBLE!!! So many commercials 1/5
We downloaded this on the fire stick. It will play 5 mins of a show and then play commercials for 10 mins. We actually timed it. Ridiculous. The only reason we didn't watch through on demand was for the commercials. Watch through Hulu or on demand.
By A mix
This app has so many adds it's not worth it!!!
Great App; too many ads 4/5
All my favorite shows on my iPad! Easy to use. The only negative is the constant, repetitive ads. It gets really old and really frustrating to have to watch and rate the same ad over and over and over again--Sometimes within just few minutes.
Ridiculous commercials 1/5
Novartis commercial too long too many commercials. Not using app again
Terrible terrible app. Will never download again. All commercials, glitchy, and NEVER loads.
Commercials play 1/5
This app is about commercials not content commercials always play sometimes you hit play on a video and a place to commercials at the same time in quite sure how that happened but the developers are far more concerned about playing commercials than they are about content.
Works great! 5/5
Thanks. No problems with the app
A&E app. 5/5
Great shows! Spot on with the updates!! Love this app!
Volume fix! 👍🏻👏🏻 5/5
Fatal flaw 2/5
Great programming but almost not worth watching because of the commercials that constantly repeat and are louder than the programming I'm trying to watch. More ads than any network on regular TV.
Too many ads. 1/5
I realize that ads are what keep the app free, but if I have to watch that stupid cusyntex commercial one more time I'm deleting this dumb app. Hey cusyntex people... We can't buy your crap without a script, so send flyers to doctors and stay off my screen. I wouldn't buy your dumb product now if it was the only drug like it...backfire.
Crime Shows 5/5
I like this app. No problems
Good shows... 4/5
But the Commercials are so loud !
App blows 1/5
Pretty simple tech now a days... shouldn't have issues like their app does
I like the app but........ 2/5
By Mrs Reams
I think this app is ok, only because you get to watch your favorite shows. Also like would really like to see more new episodes on here that would be fabulous 👍🏾
Commercial Volume too LOUD 1/5
Literally in watchable... it's only a matter of time before the FCC updates the volume ruling
I have no complaints about the actual use of the app...but why am I forced to sit through commercials? I pay a monthly fee to a satellite provider...I can't watch all content unless I sign in with my account...so why, since I'm already paying, do I have to see advertisements? And why are the ads so loud and so awful?
App is clunky 3/5
Navigation is average. Commercials are very poorly streamed. At one point it just repeated the same commercial. At another point I hit the button "More Info" on an ad. Then could not navigate back to video. Had to close down the app and restart. Won't respond to pause button on headphones either. You must hit pause button on screen.
Too many glitches. Keeps shutting down 2/5
This is the only app among others that are similar in scope that keeps shutting down.
Great app 4/5
My only complaint is the repetitive commercials, I keep seeing the same windows ad over and over...it makes me not want to learn anymore about the windows 10 pc. I have had to reboot the app a few times but it has never been that big of an inconvenience. Great content!
WHY ARE THE COMMERCIALS SO LOUD AND SO LONG?!?! 1/5
The commercials are SO LOUD. Why would they be so much louder than the show?! Why do they all have the worst jingles/songs?
Also, one 40-minute show had 25 additional minutes of commercials. TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES!!! This app makes me angry enough to type in ALL CAPS!!!!!! The episode of The First 48 that I just finished watching had one 16 minute long commercial break, in addition to a two other commercials breaks that were each a few minutes long. Sixteen consecutive minutes!!! Sixteen. Out. Of. Forty.
I think whoever built this app is trolling us with the world's worst ads. YOU WIN, A&E APP DEVELOPER, YOU WIN!
A&E app 5/5
Absolutely love this app!! Can watch my favorite shows even though I don't have cable in my home
