Can’t change providers 2/5
It was working fine until I changed tv / internet providers, but the app won’t let me change it, so I can’t watch any full episodes (just the end-of-episode recaps).
I changed it on my iPhone, didn’t affect the app. I deleted the app a few times, still won’t change. I tried signing out of the app, won’t let me. PLEASE FIX!
Doesn't support DirecTV Now activation. 2/5
Neither the iPad, iPhone nor Apple TV versions of this app support activation through DirecTV Now -- not to be confused with satellite-based DirecTV -- which almost all other popular channels already do. Please add support for DirecTV Now soon!
NEW HGTV app user NOT impressed 1/5
I have entered my TV provider on my iOS device, with HGTV enabled... yet the app will not recognize my login AND will not allow me to enter my TV provider in the app because it only shows the top 8 or so. When I click on "more providers" it says it doesn't recognize my provider. (My provider IS listed in other providers on HGTV.com.) Super frustrated. (FYI, things also are not working when I try to watch on my MacBook entering my TV provider info.) Problems abound.
Love and hate 2/5
Such a love hate relationship with this app. I love hgtv and being able to watch anywhere anytime but so few to watch and they come and go so quickly! I also can't get over the fact that the end of EVERY SINGLE ONE is cut off. I hate that soooooo much. I need the end! I hate 2 minute clip. What's the point?? Make me think I have 20 episodes to watch oh nope, Only 3 are longer then 2 minutes.
Invalid code 1/5
By Monte love
I enter code so I can log in with my cable provider and keep getting message that it's an invalid code
Missing DirectTV Now provider 1/5
Giving this a one star because it does not include DirectTV Now in the TV provider list. Most other apps support it now.
“Television service provider” required 1/5
Alas, the good HGTV programs are only accessible if you have a tv service provider. Verizon, AT&T and their buddies win again. They don’t tell you upfront that a service provider log-in is required. Oh, they will let me view the trailers. :)
Best ever 5/5
I LOVE HGTV so having it in an app is wonderful. Only negative is I would love more show options too.
App crashes 1/5
Everytime I’m going to turn my phone sideways to make the screen bigger, the app crashes.
PLEASE! Get better at your advertising!!! 3/5
I don’t mind watching a commercial or two, you’ve got to pay the bills, but watching the SAME commercial over and over again is seriously annoying. PLEASE add some variety.
This year the White House reflects the true class it has lacked for the past 8 years. Timeless beauty and classic elegance!! The fine simple touches are amazing!! Kudos to the volunteers and to the TRUMPS for bringing back the LOVE OF COUNTRY TO AMERICA!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!
Great App 5/5
By Cordova Dad
This is a great app. I thoroughly enjoy having all of the great shows on demand.
Fix your app! 1/5
The AppleTV app is basically useless. Why offer the option of Live TV if it’s not going to work? The interface is annoying and clunky. Terrible, terrible, terrible.
Great App 5/5
The app was easy to launch and view selected TV shows through my cable provider. I have been pleased that I haven’t experienced any streaming disruptions.
iOS App needs fixed 1/5
I’m not sure what changed but we used to enjoy this app often up until a couple months ago. So the banner overlay at the top that displays : Home Love TV Shows Search and Settings is stuck at the top of our screen. All the way to the right side it displays Done and green circle with a check mark. The banner is well over 5” and eats up way too much of our tv to even enjoy it. We have tried deleting it to install it again. We have signed out and back in again to no avail. I hope this bug is fixed soon as we miss watching our favorite shows!!
Restarts shows at the hour 1/5
Great app except for a major flaw. On Roku episodes will restart whenever the time changes to a new hour.... so if you start a house hunters at 10:50, at 11:00 it will automatically restart that episode, causing you to have to fast forward and find your spot.... this has been an error since they redesigned the app.
Quit cutting the full episodes short! 2/5
This is typically my go to app if I have some “free” time somewhere. Lately though all the full episodes are cut short by a couple minutes. What’s the point of watching if I can’t watch until the end?? Please fix this!
Nice App 5/5
In trying to sign into my cable provider, no more providers showed up. Had to turn off HGTV under TV Provider in settings to get it to work properly.
Can’t access cable providers 5/5
I previously was able to watch the shows through my cable provider. Now it only lists 8 providers and the More Providers button does not work. Very frustrating. Was a 5 Star and when fixed will return to 5 Star.
UPDATE: contacted customer service. Their response and it worked.
“If you'll go to your iPhone or iPad's settings, then scroll down to TV Provider and select it, please turn off the switch beside 'HGTV'. After this, please close the app from running in the background of your device then reopen it. Then, when you select Sign In within our app, you should be able to select your provider to sign in.”
Sign in 4/5
Recently had problems signing in and contacted customer support. I was told to go to settings on my phone and look up tv provider and then toggle off the hgtv button. After closing out the hgtv app and reopening, I was then able to find my provider and sign in. Thanks customer support.
Use once 1/5
By Nob p
Signed thru my service provider Suddenlink on day I downloaded app watched a show next day try to sign to my provider and Suddenlink does not exist on provider list. Not worth time to download!
Unable to login in to cable provider 1/5
What junk. The whole premise is to let cable subscribers use this and the login feature shows no providers other than the eight or so that paid to be seen. What a joke.
By Jason Brown IPad
Will not allow me to select Orbitel as my cable supplier. It will not pull them up on the available list but they are an available cable company. I was able to set it up on the web as well as with a droid phone. App needs to be fixed.
Sign in 1/5
Can’t sign in if the the provider is not on the first screen. Useless
NO Spectrum/Time Warner Cable??? 1/5
This is confusing. It lets me watch on my home TWC app but there’s no where to pick on the drop down menu when signing in “TWC or spectrum”. Boo
Way too many ADs 2/5
Every couple of minutes, you have to watch the same 5 ads over and over again. It’s so annoying. Please stop with the frequency of the ads. It makes me want to stop using this app.
It doesn’t work. When I click on the program I would like to view, it gets stuck on the black screen with the spinning circle.
Sign in not working 2/5
Normally I love this app. But for some reason right now when I click on more providers nothing happens. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and it did not help.
My Go To App!!! 5/5
When all the other channels have the same old same old, I go to HG to discover more about the world.. thank you!!
Need bugs fixed 3/5
When trying to sign into tv provider, it won’t allow me too. Even though in settings it’s linked and when I download the app it asks for permissions, it is requiring I sign in. It only gives around 8 providers. When I click the ‘more providers’ link, it doesn’t work. Frustrating. When it did work, I loved the app.
Can’t pull up list of other providers. So, yeah, useless.
No live stream 1/5
I have used this app for over 3 years. I have updated all my devices. Killed this app and then reloaded. It no longer allows me to search my provider,Suddenlink, or any other provider that is not provided on their front page to sign in. With all the reruns though I really probably not missing much.
HGTV BUG ISSUES 1/5
It's had issues since they updated it, the first of Sept. Apparently the first of Oct 2017 (they said) they have killed the bugs.. They need a new can of raid, it still stinks. NO LONGER USER FRIENDLY. You no longer have a choice of episodes to watch. Nor can I get it "live". Don't understand that one as I do have cable. I can say good bye as all they do is spin off after spin offs. How many house hunters and flip or flops can we stomach.
Doesn’t work 1/5
No longer works with Google Fiber. Can’t pull up list of “more providers.”
Needs more shows👎🏾
By NickPappas iPhone
Repetitive commercials 2/5
First of all, there are too many commercials. I guess it’s manageable, but then they literally will play the same commercial 3 times in a row in a single commercial segment. Whyyyyyy???? 😭😩 Just kill me already!
SLING TV Provider not on the list 1/5
Please add Sling TV as a provider so we can sign on and watch live content.
Needs more shows 2/5
Not only is the selection of shows pathetic, you only get to pick from 4 or 5 episode of each show. For example, I was watching fixer upper at my parents this afternoon before I went to work (I don't get hgtv at home). It was an episode from their first season. I downloaded the app in hopes of being able to finish the episode at some point today. Since I couldn't, I figured I'd look up the original love it or list it. It's not even on here!!
Apple TV streaming 3/5
I would give the app a 5 star rating if it wasn't because of the issue with streaming. I would like the app to continue running on my Apple TV, even when I am currently checking something else like let's say a quick text message. Why does it have to stop? Other apps do it
Hate the app....love the shows. 2/5
This app has terrible functionality. Sometimes the episode plays when you select it and sometimes it doesn't....have to restart the app to get it to work. And then it doesn't always connect to Chromecast. Very frustrating.
Can't cast 1/5
Loved this app until I updated it, now I cannot cast live tv to my Chromecast. Will set to 5 once bug is fixed
Great shows, terrible app 1/5
I love the shows, but this app is the worst. It's difficult to navigate and the shows constantly freeze while playing. You can't just go back and restart either. You have to completely shut the app down and start it again. There's also no "watch list" or "favorite shows", so you have to go find the show and remember what episode you were on and MAYBE it will remember where you were at in the episode. I don't mind having to watch 5 commercials in a row, but every time the show freezes, you have to watch the commercials over again. I also can't watch with my baby in the room because one commercial in the set guaranteed will be loud enough to blow out your eardrums. I want to use this app and enjoy the shows, but there are so many bugs that I'm usually too frustrated after just 1 episode. I have these problems on both my iPad and amazon tv.
Old shows 2/5
I thought this app would have all the latest episodes on demand. Similar to most network apps. Nope. Please keep this app current!
Well I want to thank for updating your app to when the commercials come on the sound increases more than double. Do you have an idea how painful it is to have your earbuds in and then have a commercial blast your eardrums without warning?? Thanks, thanks a lot, we are done with dealing with such a stupid change in your app. We don't need to have our ear ring for the rest of the day because someone is screaming about Bargain Outlet...
By Jenn De Los Santos
the amount of commercials !!!!!!!!!
By Hailey & Emma's Babci
I am the world's most techno-impaired person! Computers scare me and anything to do with apps sends me hiding in a corner with a blanket over my head! But your app was easy to use and understand; enabling me to watch some of my favorite HGTV shows where ever I happen to be. Coping with chronic illness means I am frequently bedbound but this app enables me to have entertainment and distraction in my little phone. My only request is that you add more shows and more episodes. Thanks so much.
Ms. CB 5/5
Love having access to some of my favorite shows. Would like MORE
8/29/17 back watching live cool new shows
Hgtv watch app 1/5
I keep getting a message that I don't have the current version. But when I go to the App Store I do have the current version, and I can't get rid of the message or watch HGTV.
