Poorly designed app, eschews all iOS and TVos standards 1/5
Getting sick and tired of needing to authenticate nearly weekly. Year prepaid subscription, AMC should be able to better cache login credentials. Media player is a hot mess and doesn’t use any of the normal Apple TV conventions, like skip forward. Displaying the progress bar and time remaining is inconsistent and often produces awful results. Get your act together AMC.
Crash & Burn 1/5
You can’t watch anything on ipad for longer than 15 minutes without it crashing. Very frustrating & disappointing as there’s really good content available but when you are constantly rebooting app & resume what you are watching it takes away from the programming. I am definitely going to cancel my subscription, it’s just not worth the hassle and most programs are available in stand alone apps that work better.
Absolutely terrible quality always says “sorry something went wrong on our end” over and over
Inexcusable for 2021 1/5
I don’t understand how such a popular and successful channel could have such a dreadful app in 2021. This app has so many bugs it feels unusable at times. Even when it does work, it is so incredibly not user-friendly. Amateur hour over at AMCs app development company.
This app is broken. It doesn’t work on ANY device we own. AMC should not be charging money for this. It’s unfinished. We get different search results using the same criteria across different devices. Endless errors. All other streaming apps we own work fine. This is an AMC issue. Try searching Better Call Saul - doesn’t even come up. AMC should be issuing refunds to anyone who has paid for this app or subscribes.
App doesn’t work 1/5
By El Eli mister
Can’t even watch a single movie or show without the eternal loading circle coming on.
This app crashes every 5 minutes. Then tells me to many people are using my account when it’s literally just on my phone. Constant freezing and crashing. 🙄
Just okay 3/5
With so many streaming choices in 2021 I expect a lot from a premium television app. There are so many awesome services standing ready and willing to take my money. Unfortunately AMC+ falls short. First off, there’s a major lack of content. Why can I not stream prior seasons of The Walking Dead? Secondly, why is my viewing history not saved? This should be a seamless experience between all of my linked devices like every other streaming app I own. Disappointed but they already got my money for a 1-year membership.
Horrible App! 1/5
I can normal work thru a glitchy app, but this one is beyond broke! This app needs a total overhaul. I can’t sign in on my AppleTV, when I go to the website (like it says), the website doesn’t let me activate my account. The app freezes so bad I can’t get out of the apple unless I go to AppleTV icon on the remote.
PLEASE FIX THIS APP! (You would think they would do something with as many people complaining about the glitches).
Its had an error every five seconds 2/5
I play my show and everything runs smoothly, for five seconds that is. It has an error that causes me to restart the app in order to watch anything
Great content, but terrible app. 2/5
App functionality is really disappointing.
No preview or even show description for the live channels. You just tune in, and have to guess what you’re watching.
When watching streaming content, instead of advancing to the next episode (or even giving you an option to do so), the episode restarts. Then you have to go back several menus to find the episode list.
“Continue watching” defaults to the last episode watched instead of the next, and you must go to the show’s main page to choose the next episode.
Frequent stalls and buffering issues.
AMC, I love your content, but navigating the app is really a headache.
Sign in confusion 1/5
I already get AMC+ through Xfinity, why does it feel like the app only has the option to sign you up for what would be, an additional subscription for me?
Having trouble with app 3/5
I’m having trouble with the app it constantly kicked off while tryin to watch a movie or show an then I reopen the app an have to sign in again I’ve had to sign in many times a day it’s crazy I don’t know why it keeps happening it also happens when I first open the app Ive never had so much trouble staying signed in to a streaming app. Also I’ll be watching a show and it will just freeze on pause even when I didn’t hit pause or it will stop playing an say we’re sorry having trouble playing this title on our end basically it’s ridiculous please fix other than those issues the app has great content
Still no AirPlay support. 1/5
Updated UI and some fixed bugs, but still no AirPlay support. Neither iOS or tvOS consider video the app plays as media so it’s a pain to pause and control on an TV with an iOS device as the remote.
Why charge a premium for the TV edit? 1/5
My wife is a very seasonal content viewer meaning I’ve only got a month to catch her up on all the horror classics she’s never seen. For some reason all the horror movies always leave the mainstream services in October and end up in places like AMC+. Shes never seen Scream, Halloween or Alien so I figured I’d pay the monthly fee because AMC+ is the exclusive home for those movies this month.
We started with Scream tonight and I was very disappointed to find out it’s the M-14 TV edit of the film. We didn’t notice until the first “commercial” fade out (with no commercial). All in all about 6 mins are removed from the run time, dialog is dubbed over with new lines and it’s riddled with bad fade outs for commercial breaks.
I can not recommend this service if that’s the quality of content they will provide for 8.99 a month.
La peor 1/5
No lo descarguen lo tiene nada bueno no tiene nada en español ni subtítulos pasar la app a ver en tv no tiene opción nada,nada de buena la peor no mal gasten su dinero
Great shows app needs work. 2/5
I don’t like how I have to constantly sign in. If you get a phone call in middle of a show it stop your show and make you sign in. If you look at the app funny it will make you sign in.
Also there’s no ease of function. You have to search and click every tab just to get to the show you are on and god forbid you forget. You’ll have to sign in twice before you find it. There’s no transition from one episode to the next. So far worst app to watch shows on. Even the CW beats this one right now.
Add Casting 4/5
Add Casting to Chromecast
So many app problems on Apple TV 1/5
Too many mistakes and problems. App does not allowing to pause a half of the time. App does not start playing next episode automatically and actually just start replaying the same one that you just finished watching. Not user friendly. Does not show the film quality and sound. Very bad disappointing for paid application.
Probably the worst Apple TV app I’ve ever used. If I was a developer I would be ashamed to say I worked on this app. Bug filled and just terrible!
Does not work!!! 1/5
I read that they had fixed the app and that was a lie. I went ahead and set up an account and I can’t choose anything. I go to press play and nothing happens. I did find if you go to the actual website it will work but as far as using the app on your phone or tv don’t bother.
Beyond Pitiful 1/5
I started a 7 day free trial on this app. I’m pretty sure I could watch Mad Men on Prime with ads in less time that it takes to restart these episodes. It doesn’t allow me to continue watching where I last left off. I have to search for the series (I know it’s an old one) click on the season and then the episode. I’m not interested in The Walking Dead or what Kevin can do to himself. I’ll be canceling when the trial period is over.
Horrible App 1/5
By Swillian hook
I love some of the shows on AMC so this app is a huge disappointment. I have to sign in again about every other time I use it. It doesn’t keep track of where I left off on an episode or series. I’m a complete sucker and paid for a year of this garbage. I sincerely hope it improves at some point during that time.
Can’t Hit Play On Anything 1/5
Just downloaded the app and paid for the month and lo and behold when I try to hit play on anything to watch, nothing happens. They just updated the app and.... they forgot to make the play button clickable? I wanted to give this app the benefit of the doubt and ignore the one star reviews but boy oh boy what a mistake that was.
lol wut? 1/5
I can’t even create account through the app?
Worst app ever 1/5
I just purchased iPhone 13 pro with verizon giving one year subscription fine but what good is it if you can’t use the app it won’t load right , won’t let me use password I created with initial set up keep telling me it’s wrong , won’t let me create a new one I’ve deleted the app reinstalled I’ve even gone on google and tried going in that way “nothing” at this point Doing it like that it does this thing where it tries loading real fast over and over and over but it doesn’t finalize or initiate I think I’ll give up delete it all and forget about it delete subscription cause I’m sure if I forget and get charged no one would mind awful way to go very bad app
It’s so frustrating 1/5
I literally can’t use it, I keep getting error 403 and it will not let me even sign in. Can’t use it on desktop either. 😒
Litterally The Worst 1/5
Wow, I didn't think it was possible to create an app this horrible. AMC is not going to survive with something this awful. Literally unusable, crashes, freezes, throws insane errors. How can you mess up this bad?!
Update needed 1/5
App doesn’t have a AirPlay or Mirror option. I can’t even use the hdmi adapter to see it play on the tv. Please update this app, I have been paying since day one. NEEDS A MAJOR UPDATE!
Horrible app 1/5
Great content and hubs, but the app stinks! It frequently pauses and freezes. It does not allow users to preview trailers or clips. I cannot use my remote, only the app on my smartphone.
Even Worse Than HBO Max 1/5
Airplay is disabled so I can’t play shows on my iPhone or iPad and send it to my AppleTv. I can’t believe Apple even allows this.
Shows often just pause for no reason even with a blazing fast and stable wifi connection.
App rarely saves your favorites or remembers where you left off in a series or specific episode.
The AppleTv version of the app is useless. Constant playback errors and blank screens and menus.
AMC needs to scrap this and start over. Whatever developer team they hired to build this app are complete amateurs.
I’ll be canceling at the end of the month.
Apple TV app version is very bad 2/5
The app is filled with bugs. Constantly wants me to reactivate my tv each time I use the app. Start/pause randomly stops working.
Hard to exit app. Forward/rewind is passable at best.
Closed captioning repeatedly turns off whenever show is paused.
Being completely honest.. App is Trash. 1/5
- Cannot log in on Apple devices.
- Search feature is laggy.
- Constantly logs you out.
- Does not have all seasons of most shows (like TWD).
- Says some shows aren’t even available.
I could honestly go on but just save yourself the time and money. I’m honestly quite shocked their expecting people to pay for this. I wouldn’t subscribe even if it were only $1, being completely honest. I signed up for the free 7 day trial, and forgot to cancel but i figured maybe with all the bad reviews they would have fixed it but no, no they did not. I have officially cancelled the subscription, I would consider downloading again IF the major issues are fixed and more stuff is added as i am a big fan of horror and amc in general, but until then i’ll stick to my other less buggy apps.
AMC + very bad 1/5
By the big skeet man
I can’t log in threw my app at all even having a account,the browser is garbage so many freezing bugs I’m very upset with the quality of this app and the money spent on it I’m canceling my subscription ASAP ! Don’t waist your time until these bugs are fixed !!!!!
Bad enough to unsubscribe over 2/5
The app is a reflection of the same problems that plague desktop AMC+. The biggest one being constantly having to reload an episode every 10-15 min when it freezes for no reason. It might be bearable if it remember led where it freezes but nope. So more frustration trying to find that spot again, knowing it will just happen again in another 15 min. Better to just wait until you can buy show episodes somewhere else that works, which is really too bad.
Absolute garbage 1/5
How does a company launch an app that only works 5% of the time? You should be ashamed.
No Chromecast support 1/5
Absolute garbage. To pay $8 a month and no ability to cast to a Chromecast. Cancelled before 7 day trial ended.
Better off subscribing through a third party 1/5
First off all let me say this app on the Apple TV (device, not service) lacks full integration. When looking at my Up Next bar nothing played in this app has been kept track of outside the app. Second of all the UI is a joke, I’ve never see an app botch scrubbing forward/backward this bad since that whole HBO Max debacle some months back.
Finally this is where the super shady stuff kicks in. When going to cancel there is no way to do so. At least not in any version of the app on my various devices. Canceling the service is also not available on the website either. Having to e-mail customer service to cancel as the first and only method of doing so is cause for some concern, burying that information in the FAQs section of your website… that’s teetering on scammer territory. Not acceptable.
Just doesn’t work 1/5
I keep getting billed for a subscription, but can’t log in. When I try to reset my login, app asks for credit card info- SO frustrating!!! And the app subscription won’t connect with xfinity. Total waste Cancelled subscription
Makes the HBO Max app look like a flawless piece of engineering. 1/5
This app seems like it was put together over a weekend. Lists don’t populate correctly, artwork is low resolution, and navigation is unintuitive. AMC has perfectly serviceable apps for Shudder and Sundance Now. Why not just reskin those instead of putting this out into the world? Totally irresponsible to take people’s money through this just to get out of splitting revenue with Amazon or Apple.
Lots of work to do still 1/5
Watched a couple episodes and it won’t play anything else. Logged out and in, reinstalled it and restarted my iPad. Just wont work unfortunately. Pretty lame.
App needs serious work 1/5
I’ve heard that people have try to get help for the app, but haven’t gotten any. The app crashes a lot, it signs me out (even while watching a movie) the movies don’t always load, and while watching multiple times the movie stops and a very long error message comes on the screen and I have to close the whole app to get the movie to play again
Missing movies 1/5
There are so many movies missing or don’t show up in the app. Search doesn’t work. Scrolling “ALL MOVIES” never shows all the movies. Even adding movies to your list doesn’t work. I ended up watching movies on Tubi with commercials because they didn’t show up on the AMC+ app. I really hope all the problems get fixed with an update soon this is way too frustrating and obviously not worth subscribing to if I end up using other apps to view content that claims to be on AMC+ will have to contact customer support for a refund what a disappointment.
Constantly logs out and doesn’t save progress 1/5
I have had this app for about 10 hours. On iPhone it logs me out every time I close the app. It has only saved my progress in a series one time out of about six times trying to watch a show.The content is great, the app is garbage.
App is useless. A time wasting buffer nightmare 1/5
The app is useless. It’s endless crashing, buffer time. You’ll have to sit there staring at your screen more often than tolerable waiting for the app to Load, to play the content you want to watch, and when you’re finally watching the show it will keep Pausing and buffering. It’s useless. I spend more time waiting for the show I’m watching to buffer than I get to watch the actual show. My iPhone is perfectly fine, up to date, WiFi is on point. It’s just this app. No other streaming app does this. This app is poorly put together it’s so slow. The only alternative is watching in browser on your phone, but browser streaming doesn’t offer full screen viewing. see other similar reviews. Canceled subscription.
Subbed for FearFest and as soon as it’s over I’m done. Love tv doesn’t show movie titles. App is buggy all around. Can’t mirror to tv from mobile. Needs ALOT of work
Great Selection but Hard to Stream 1/5
Love the selection of movies and shows but the app is pretty unreliable. Streams freeze constantly or cut off randomly. Would be nice to be able to use a chromecast too.
It’s just bad all around 1/5
As for a lot of people using this app, the last season of the walking dead is exclusively here. This is not a biased a review, just the truth. Absolutely HORRIBLE interface, lag that I’ve never had from any other streaming service, lack of shows outside from what brought me. I’m just glad there’s only 8 episodes more to bear dealing with this.
By Esmeralda Ghostly
I just got this app and it won’t let me stream to my tv from my iPhone, there’s no streaming icon to cast it to my tv. I also tried online streaming and just keeps telling me that something went wrong. And to top it off it wouldn’t let me cancel my subscription on the website so I emailed them and told them to cancel my subscription. So now I wait., I’ve never had any trouble with any streaming service except this one, I definitely do not recommend it.
