False Advertising and Money Scam 1/5
By Cylon Detector
When I first bought the AMC app, I intended on watching season 5 of ‘Better Call Saul’, because it said that it would be available to watch on the app with the purchase of premiere. So, I bought premiere, then go to look for season 5, but I could not find it. Not only that, but even though I PURCHASED premiere (which includes extra movies and shows, and no ads), some things I tried to watch still had ads. The layout was also very confusing. It was hard to search for shows, get to certain episodes, and really, to find anything. This app is not only advertising falsely but has scammed money out of me. So AMC: stop falsely promising things, and make sure that premiere works, and for god’s sake change the layout. So if you want to but this app—DON’T. I wouldn’t recommend it, don’t waste your time.
Don’t buy!!! 1/5
By SL’s Mac
I have never written a view on an app like this cause it’s kinda a Karen move imo. However, this app is so bad and so effectively a giant scam that I feel it is necessary. The chances of everything working correctly are literally less than the chances of it not working in the slightest. Terrible app from a greedy company. Just look at the reviews
Is there a crash? 4/5
I normally love AMC app and have zero issues, but I can’t get it to work today. :’(
AMC App 1/5
Terrible! Keeps logging me off! Junk channel!
Worst app ever. 1/5
It makes me log in every time I use it. Then sometimes the log in doesn’t work and I have to do it several times! Not worth the headache.
No chromocast 1/5
No chromecast for iOS. Wish I could give this no stars.
false advertising 1/5
By amare the blueboi
they dont have wow wow wubbzy for my kids
Lol is this a joke? 1/5
Imagine being a multi million dollar company and can’t produce a simple streaming working app. Why did you guys even pay your app development team lol? Simple features like Search doesn’t even work. Haha! A freaking search feature does NOT work in year 2020! Lol
Not worth it. 1/5
So you are telling me that I have to pay extra money to watch a show that is already on tv where you can watch everyday with my cable provider?? Every other company like starz,HBO, max are all free with your tv provider! Those shoes are even more expensive to make and they are free with your tv provider and you want me to pay extra to watch your shows. This is ridiculous! I will never watch any of there shows again.
App makes you sign in everytime! 1/5
Worthless app makes you sign in everytime.
SKIPS AND GLITCHES CONSTANTLY 1/5
This app is terrible. Its
Uses SO MUCH data! 3/5
By anonymous nickname 543
I’m 100% on cellular data right now, and this app uses about 2GB to watch a single show! (I can watch an entire season of shows on Netflix or Hulu for that much data.) No way to do picture-in-picture, going forward/backward in an episode is slooooooow, and a lot of the UI is just... not intuitive. It gets as many stars as it does because it’s the only way for me to watch the latest episodes of a few shows.

Barely any content for people to watch
Terrible now 1/5
By SK1LL3R Saint
At the moment I haven’t created a account for amc since I wanna watch walking dead right? Their will be ads yes, but the audio is fine really no glitches. One of the annoying things is that if you rewind you have to rewatch the ad. May update this review if it changes but it’s amazing and works just as expected. I didn’t trust this app at the start due to the various 1 star reviews but I legit downloaded the app and started watching walking dead without making an account. It may be different for other people which is a possibility but these reviews seem to be fake since app works 100%.
About a day after having this app it asked for my internet provider which is weird because I’d assume they’d do it at the start. This app seems to be a scam and I do not recommend it.
Barely better than tbs/TNt apps 2/5
Now that the TV land app is no more, this is the second worst app in the app store.
Watching killing Eve, 2 episodes in a row now after the first commercial break, it would jump back a few minutes and make me rewatch half of the first segment.
If you pause a show, there's a chance it will die on you.
And it randomly marks episodes as played.
DO NOT use this app if you ever want to ff or rwd-ever 1/5
DO NOT use this app if you ever want to ff or rwd-ever, the video player functions like a webcast player from 1995. Most every attempt to fast forward or rewind will result in 90 MORE seconds of ads, EVERY TIME.
Starts itself over. 1/5
Every time I try and watch the walking dead I’m half way through my ep then it skips backwards and whenever I try and go back to the part I was at it kept putting me to the start of the ep. please fix
Does NOT work with Chromecast Now 1/5
Why was Chromecast taken off?
Thieves! Show removed before we could watch! 1/5
Purchased 1 month to watch Better Call Saul Season 5 and immediately saw only last 6 episodes were available.
By the time we were able to catch up, the rest of the season had been removed! This was all in the course of less then 10 days!
We’d like our money back.
Don’t try to forward or rewind 1/5
You’ll get an ad every freaking time without fail. God forbid you need to go back if even for a few seconds. The slider will trigger another ad.
Doesn’t Work With Chromecast 1/5
This app does not work with Chromecast from my iPhone. Don’t waste your time if you stream apps and cast them to your TV.
This is got to be one of the glitchiest apps I have ever tried to use in my life. Half the time it doesn’t ever work. I’ve tried in on two
Different devices so I know It isn’t the device. You can’t search for some shows that are definitely on AMC- I have to go through Apple TV and have that open the AMC app just to find the show I am looking for. It will just buffer forever, have to restart the app three or four times before it will
Work. Oh and it won’t drop to chromecast- but it will do Bluetooth?? Stupid. I’m rather surprised at the subpar nature of the app for what it representing. High school kids make better functioning apps.
Mixed review 2/5
I’m not really sure how the paid version works with no ads, however, the free to watch episodes seem to be very glitchy. I’m a huge walking dead fan and wanted to catch up on Season 10 but it was frustrating because anytime I would fast forward or rewind it was almost automatically switch to a Ad plus it wouldn’t let me fast rewind properly. Please fix it.
BROKEN. DONT DOWNLOAD. WATCH ON WEB. 1/5
THIS APP PLAYS AN ADVERTISEMENT EVERY 5 MINUTES. EVEN AFTER CLOSING AND RESTARTING THE APP. THERE ARE SO MANY ADVERTISEMENTS THAT I JUST HAVE TO WATCH ON MY COMPUTER. THEY MAKE MONEY OFF AD PLAYS AND THEY ARE SCAMMING US BY PLAYING 50 ADS DURING ONE SHOW.
DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. JUST WATCH ON YOUR BROSWER OR TV. THERE ARE 78 LESS ADS ELSEWHERE.
Linked to fios, still can’t watch a full season 1/5
Super disappointing. (Edit) Even the paid version didn’t have it! Going to request a refund.
Total trash , even if you sign in with your tv provider it still forces you to watch a 15-30 second ad every time you skip forward or backwards in the show , and it takes so long to load the ads that it makes it almost impossible to watch
Maybe one of worst tv apps to exist 1/5
Like a couple shows on there, impossible to tolerate without paying for add free Verizon, airplay and chromecast features are complete trash. Good shows app is really just terrible.
Great channel, awful app 1/5
For a network that turns out trendsetting shows, the app makes me think it’s 1995. Try to search a show, and it sends you to Extras from 5 years ago. Awful. Please do your network right, folks.
Chrome cast issues 1/5
Airplay does not work either !
Casting and Airplay do not work 2/5
Won’t connect to my tv. Even screen mirroring is blocked in the video player.
Where are the previous episodes and season of Better Call Saul? 1/5
I pay for premiere and I still don’t get the “old” content?
Old, like from two months ago-this season’s episodes.
Very Misleading App (Premium) 1/5
Got this App and purchased Premium for one reason - to watch a recent season of an AMC produced show. Only selected episodes (same as on Cable On Demand service. They did not offer the remaining episodes at all.
Why not after paying $5 per month? Cancelled immediately.
False reviews- only accepts good ratings 1/5
So I tried to provide a low rating review. It said my very random nicknames were all taken. I decided to switch to to see if it would take the “already taken” nickname it it was a positive review, and it did. What BS scam of a review system..
Difficulty logging in 2/5
By chris allyn
Once you are on, you can watch your shows, no problem. But intermittently, I have to log in via my provider and get stuck in a loop. I have a cable provider that includes AMC yet the app is glitchy and seems to not recognize this. I go in circles for an hour then eventually get back on. It is frustrating.
Annoying ads 1/5
By Mark Schlabach's Mum
The amount of adds you get is crazy when you’re trying to just skip back 15 seconds to see a scene over and bam get hit with 2 minutes of ads
The chromecast function is completely unusable—-have tried reinstalling and nothing works. Not sure what’s going on with the casting functionality but it’s embarrassing.
This app is terrible 1/5
This is the worst app I’ve used yet to watch content that I’ve already made paid for. Just terrible to use.
Very laggy 1/5
So I got this app to watch TWD and I watched all the free episodes so I signed up and before I signed up it wasn’t laggy and now that I did it’s very laggy
Commercials nonstop 1/5
For every five minutes of the show you watch there is another 4-5 minutes of commercials. You seriously watch just as much commercials as you do a show, it’s ridiculous!
Bug with Xfinity Usage 2/5
There is an obvious and continual problem when using this w/ Xfinity on iPad. Authenticates to Xfinity and says you’re connected, but then “hangs” endlessly. Only way to work is to delete app, reinstall and then auth to Xfinity works fine. Have had to do this repeatedly for 2 months on both iPads.
Egregious number of ads 1/5
For every 5 or so minutes of content you have to watch 2 minutes of unskippable ads. What’s even worse is that a lot of times it’s the same ad four times in a row. Not worth your time.
By J. Rolland
This app is worse than season nine of The Walking Dead.
Can’t watch anything 1/5
Can’t even watch the non-free content after subscribing. Bait and switch.
AirPlay, Chromecast, and App itself doesn’t work 1/5
Cannot cast anything to my Vizio TV with airplay or chromecast. Both just spin and lof and freeze the app. Then the app itself is full of weird bugs where the text gets chopped up or some menu shows up in the middle
Of the page, and when you pause or quit the app in the middle of a commercial it loops the last 0.5 seconds of audio it played like a broken record until you turn off the iPad— force quitting didn’t even work. Absolutely awful when you want to cast something to your tv, don’t even bother.
They refused to give me the full month I paid for 1/5
I used Philo to get AMC, I then signed up for premier. I stop the auto renewal on Philo and AMC immediately canceled my Priemer even though Apple and Philo where both showing the account active.
Customer support just said the account was canceled so tough luck.
Ads. Streaming. CC. all bad. 2/5
Firstly, the ads—there are way too many ads whenever i try to watch something. There are obvious indicators on the player timeline that shows whenever an ad will play, but an ad almost always seems to play whenever I fast forward/rewind. My best suggestion is to experiment with this by watch a one (1) hour series and see. I don’t know if it’s because the company/owners make money from disproportionately playing the ads for revenue? Or to encourage people to get ad-free premium? But I’m beginning to suspect that. The ads almost always seem to play whenever the video is interred with fast forwarding and rewinding.
Secondly—add a scrubbing feature. Whenever I try to find a specific scene I‘ve left off at, it’ll almost never put me at the correct scene I want (e.g. I was catching up on a The Walking Dead and I tried going to the forty-seven (47) minute mark and it kept taking me ten (10) minutes before that). And, again, it would play ads almost every time I tried to do it despite there being no ad marker near it. Even when I tried continuously tapping the 15 second skip, it plays ads.
From what I know, some media players have a slow/fast scrubbing option when playing videos on mobile. You should implement that—basically, when someone is searching for a scene, they can hold down the point on the timeline that they’re currently on, and the further up they drag their finger, the slower & easier it becomes to select a certain scene/frame. There are times where I try and select a time and it just won’t stop on the correct one and it makes me think my finger might have slipped when lifting it because it doesn’t have a slow scrubbing option.
Lastly—just a cumulation of things: The app crashes. A lot. It has a difficult time connecting to chrome cast. I’ve had to repeatedly close the app and disconnect to connect it properly. Also, whenever I’m using chrome cast, I always have to go back to my phone and toggle closed captioning off and on because it either never comes back on after the ads. Sometimes, if it does come back, the ads will throw the captioning off and show text from a scene that was twenty (20) minutes earlier than the scene actually playing (this applies to more than just chrome cast. Happened on my amazon firestick too). I‘m not deaf or hard of hearing, but I could imagine how this could prove itself to be difficult to someone who is. So please, fix that because I remember that actually being an issue years ago and it still isn’t fixed.
That’s about everything I can think of at the moment. I was trying to catch up on an episode and I spent ten (10) minutes just trying to get to one scene that’s minutes before the episode actually ends. But it just keeps playing ads over and over and over again. Anyway, hope this gets around to whoever can help out with this. The app needs work. Might delete it.
Dreadful App Don’t Bother 1/5
1 out of 5 times it might start. Otherwise it hangs and you get a nice box being drawn around the call letters. NON-STOP.
Be prepared to be told you’re not logged in when you are.
App almost completely broken.... 1/5
I’m on the latest firmware version. Hopeless quest trying to watch Better Call Saul, episode 9 of this season. Paused a commercial and the app completely locked up. Had to reboot. Whenever I tried to rewind to see a scene again, it went into an endless loop of commercials that never ended. The commercials also got stuck and the same frame kept repeating, with distorted sound. Finally just gave up and watched it on YouTube TV. People who made this app should be embarrassed.
Worst streaming app 1/5
Every time you rewind 15 sec it makes you watch a few minutes of commercials. Awful.
