Great app, when it works.... 1/5
I wish I could paste the error screen on here. All my idevices get the same error when trying to watch any show: “sorry: user not authorized error” I’ve tried force quitting the app and restarting, logging out of the app then force quitting and re-log in. NOTHING works! It’s a little heartbreaking because I actually had more than just one show that I was avidly following.
In response to the developer note: I emailed your team the same day I posted the review here and have yet to see any changes or updates.
I can’t watch ANYTHING!!!😡 1/5
OMG! So my TV provider wasn’t listed in their thing, but, as it says, there was still tons of episodes for me to watch! Now, all of a sudden, EVERY SINGLE EPISODE IS LOCKED unless you sign in with a provider, but mine isn’t listed! I used to love this app, but now I can’t even do anything except watch clips, which I don’t want to do! I want to watch full episodes, but since I can’t, I will be deleting this app until they change it! Bring back free full episodes like you used to have, Lifetime!!😔😔
Works perfectly fine for me, although variety in the ads shown would be a godsend. When I’m binge watching three seasons of project runway in one sitting, I really want to see more than just the same ad for PayPal on repeat for the entire commercial break. I’m already losing my mind from binging so much in one week, please please PLEASE give more variety to the ads before I lose my mind.
Broken app 1/5
"Needs to re-authenticate" error when trying to watch project runway episodes
pRos and Cons 4/5
You get to watch all of your shows in full HD and everything that you’ll want to know about your shows but there are too many commercials in between the parts and some in between words

Used to love 1/5
By Ciara Jc animal lover of dogs
I used to get anything but now you a have to unlock everything
No more Project Runway unless you pay 1/5
Used to be able to watch the most current episodes of Project Runway (the only show I watch on Lifetime). A few weeks ago all episodes except the prior season became locked. I sent a question to Lifetime and got a nonsensical answer. Since I don’t have Hulu or a pay satellite or cable service I can no longer watch. I was willing to put up with the ads to be able to watch without having to pay for services I find lacking in value. Sorry Lifetime - not worth the money to me.
Ruining programming with ads that go black 1/5
By LP Atlanta
Your advertisers should leave. When you have to close an ad, and don’t, the ad running after it can’t be seen. If this black screen is still not closed your programming can’t be seen. LAME IDEA! If this stupidity isn’t changed, I will contact each advertiser that runs behind any black screen to let them know their advertising is being blocked because this has gone on WAY TOO LONG, and you know it’s happening!
All episodes are now locked! 2/5
I loved this app for a few years now. Love project runway. Suddenly you have locked all of the episodes. Maybe you don't want faithful followers. I'm just about ready to give up on Lifetime!!
Lifetime is one of my favorite sites so I rated it a 4 Star.
I’m already paying for the channel on Direct TV & I don’t feel I should have to pay for the lifetime movie club as a separate fee I feel that’s double dipping & it should not be allowed to customers to have to pay twice. Till all channels are included the rating will stay at 4 stars
Locked shows 1/5
Simple. I tried watching my show, back then it was unlocked. Now out of nowhere they’re all locked?! The ads take way too much time, which I don’t have. What’s the point of having this app anymore.
By Morrah rule
This app has no cost and is one of the best TV apps I have thank you
Project runway 2/5
Disappointed in season 16 that there was no finale. You watch all the episodes but didn’t get to see who won the red carpet show.
2 stars only because I’m able to watch show 2/5
This app needs some help. Stop asking me if 👁 want the 3 min ads or interactive. The button response is slow so it takes almost the whole countdown before it acts. Once commercials start, you can’t pause or exit to the show list which is a pain. One McDs commercial played 7 times in a row. The only way to stop it was to close the app since you can’t exit the commercial. Some commercials are totally stupid - the Basis commercial? The voice and video are out of sync (I’ve seen it 9000 times). There are a few commercials that have no text or product. Literally 👁 sit there confused as to what 👁 saw (commercial with a kid trying to open a marker(?), someone off screen reaches for it and the kid hands back the thing and it ends. There are no words, no product you can see and it’s about 15 seconds.)
Going from one device to the next doesn’t work. The continue watching option is always 3-4 episodes behind. When you search your show, you see your show progress, selecting it always starts from the beginning. So note how much progress you made so you can slide over to where you were. It also started this problem of starting the next episode about 45 min In. Why? 👁 have no idea. You have to slide the dot back to the beginning of the show.
I've deleted the app 1/5
I've deleted the app now that I can't watch my shows without a cable subscription which I don't have. I used to watch three minutes of repeated adds 4-5 times an hour episode which should have paid for it. Bottom line; one shoe is not worth a cable subscription.
It takes 2 hours to watch an hour long show. Too many ads and the app crashes a lot!!!!
NEEDS TO MAKE APPLE TV COMPATIBLE 2/5
Many complaints about all the ads. Has anyone ever watched the show on TV. The app has no more, and maybe even less that the TV version. I just wish it was AppleTV compatible. That lovely little TV icon so many other apps have that makes it easy to watch on my big monitor.
Unbearable - I'll just quit watching 1/5
I love my Project Runway, but I won't watch on this app anymore. There are ads every 5 minutes about, and they are the SAME ones over and over - in some commercial breaks they will show the same commercial two times in a row.
I'm sick of all the ads and will no longer support this app. If that means I have to quit tuning in for my favorite show, so be it. We will see if anybody monitors these.
No more mirroring? 1/5
I used to mirror from my phone to my Apple TV, now it just says “to continue watching video please stop screen recording” which we aren’t doing.
It’s terrible. 1/5
By ME! 😂
It can’t even cast to my TV.
Sound problems 2/5
By Word epidemic
I have had several problems with the sound when I watch on my iPhone. It crackles constantly and while on commercials cuts in and out really bad. It’s not my phone because this app is the only one that does it.
Chromecast is broken 1/5
For the last few versions on iOS 11, it’s been broken. Sad.
Why are there so many adds 😑
When I would check if project runway would play, it would say it would air the next day, but now I have to wait for like next year. I don’t like this
Zero stars not available 1/5
By Who care who it's from
If you are an advertiser you will love this app because it plays them over and over. I switches to commercials fine but when it comes time to switch back to the show it crashes. Restart it and it starts over. Try to slide it to where you left off and most often you get to watch the commercials again only to find 80% of the time it crashes again. 1.5 hours to watch a 42 minute show.
By Island Scentsations
I have used this app for a couple years now to watch project Runway. I go to watch it tonight everything locked even episodes i saw a couple weeks ago whats going on?
Midway through season 16 of Project Runway and now all of the episodes are locked. I can access last season, but none of the new ones. It would be fine if this had started at the beginning of the season, but I get to the top five and then I’m locked out.... thanks lifetime.
If a show ends then they lock the entire series and you can only watch it if you have a tv provider with live tv. Nobody will want to download the app if they have live tv because they can just watch it on their tv. People without live tv will have a bad experience with it because they can’t watch whatever they want. Making a change with this app will make it a better experience for everyone.
Most episodes are locked 1/5
They’ve recently made it so you have to sign in with your cable company info in order to watch most shows. I didn’t mind the ads as long as the shows were free. Not so anymore :/ Wish they had given us a warning at least.
Everything about my use of this app was crap, I definitely don't recommend
Streaming problem 1/5
Won’t cast from my iPhone to my chrome cast on tv. Plays on my phone but only in portrait mode and won’t go into landscape! Extremely annoying. This app needs a ton of work.
Ad central 1/5
The most commercials and ads I have ever had the misfortune of having to view. I'd pay for no commercials!!!!! 30+ commercials for a single program?!?!?!? Utter steaming hog filth. CHANGE THE APP FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Idiots.
Episodes are locked 1/5
When I first got the app everything was great. Now every episode is locked.
Lots of ads and show keeps starting over 3/5
There r a lot of ads and that’s annoying but also when I’m watching dance moms and I close out the app or go back, when I return to resume where I left off, the show restarts so than I have to try to move back and forth to see where I left of which makes me have to sit through more ads. Also when it goes to the next episode it goes to a random point in the episode where I also have to sit through more ads and than I have to scroll back to the beginning.
Fix the bugs 1/5
It stopped streaming to my tv! So I have to give this a low rating . Along with the adds every 5mins
A technical fail. Glitches in ad transitions. Inability fast forward at start of show (after app crashed) to easily get back to where your were without being overwhelmed with ads. Doesn't work well with AirPlay. Otherwise...
Locked episodes 1/5
I really loved watching the shows on Lifetime because I don’t have tv cable, was so disappointed when all the episodes on all the tv shows are locked.
It’s AWFUL 1/5
It was AWESOME, I could watch Dance Moms and now I CAN’T WHYYYY it has a key or something why can’t I fricken’ watch itttttt!
Too many commercials 2/5
App is alright, but too many commercials and always the same ones. More annoying than commercial tv. Ruins the experience. Otherwise, app seems to work fine...
You are not authorized to view this content 1/5
I am so upset that I am getting the above error. I have bee watching Project Runway all season and now it’s saying I cannot. Nothing has changed with my provider. Please fix!!!!
Locked out halfway through season 1/5
I was enjoying the app and using it to cast Project Runway to my TV, but found that I have been locked out of all this season’s episodes, including the new one, this week, halfway through the season. I don’t appreciate it, and I will not be pushed into paying for cable in order to watch Lifetime. I really think this move was a big mistake. If I had cable, why on Earth would I need this app?!
Lifetime changes show settings in the middle of seasons 1/5
Lifetime changes which shows have episodes are available on their app without a paywall or cable provider in the middle of seasons. Tacky.
Too many ads and the volume is unacceptable 1/5
The app doesn’t allow skipping ahead at the beginning of the episode. Not until 5-10 minutes into the program does the app allow you to slower skip ahead.
Then there is the ads. There are about 7 breaks an episode and up to 5 ads per break. The worst part... the volume is not consistent. Some of the ads will literally wake the dead.
Amazing that a company would produce such crap.
Why am I getting error messages and am not able to watch certain shows? I've tried to delete and down load the app again. It would be great if you could fix this error with your app. Super annoying!
i get you need ads to make money but there should be as many as there are if i was watching it on tv, not every 5 minutes, and it’s the same 3 ads every time, i don’t feel like hearing about hiv medication or a fridge every 5 minutes
All episodes are now locked?!?! 2/5
So I've been using the Lifetime app faithfully for over a year now. I listen to one of my favorite shows while I'm at work. I've done this a few time per week, for the whole day for at least all of 2017. I made careful notes of when the episodes wouldn't be available anymore and the show I was watching has a date of December 2024. I went to the app yesterday and ALL the episodes on EVERY show available on the app are locked. I tried updating my app and restarting my phone. Still locked. I can't even access Lifetime from my Firestick anymore. What gives?! Will these be unlocked soon? You guys make it impossible to "sign in to view" episodes that are locked. That plus the repetitive ads make me ready to give up Lifetime altogether.
Ugh! To many ads 2/5
Seriously I’m so done with this app! First of there is WAY TO MANY ADS! And NOW THERE IS ONLY 5 episodes to watch for almost every show! The rest r locked ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Content is now locked 1/5
By Keine Liebe
I loved this app until a few days ago when they locked 98% of the episodes. Unless you pay for cable, the app is worthless.
