the app is partly functional, logging me out often, crashing, refusing my login, but worst of all even with paying for amc on TV you have to **UPGRADE** to amc prime for all the content that is exclusive to amc. With the small amount of content worth paying for and low budget shows and movies making up the rest of exclusive content the app is better being deleted.
Sync with Apple TV provider! 1/5
Tv provider login needs to be updated. Direct TV is no longer email and password. Now username and password. Can’t authenticate, which means I can’t use my AMC Premiere! Can authenticate with ATT TV but can’t watch shows.
Just sync up with Apple iOS native tv provider authentication like other media apps!
Fine if you watch a show all in one sitting, but try to skip around and it’ll do whatever the heck it wants. Want to skip to 3/4ths into an episode? You get 10 minutes in. Want to hit the button to skip ahead 15 seconds? It goes back 20 minutes. Want to move ahead a couple of minutes? Nope! You get to watch the commercials you just saw... again! Frustrating. This is basic stuff that should work. I believe Apple even provides templates. Come on... work it out!
Really lame 1/5
It wants me to log in to my service provider every time. It doesn’t remember where you left off and it’s almost impossible to scrub to where you where cause you can’t put your finger on the little curser to skip ahead so instead I tried to skip ahead to where I was 15 seconds at a time but I can’t do this more than twice without it forcing me to sit thru a minute of ads. This makes the app literally unusable like seriously why even make it.
SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS! 1/5
Recently purchased to watch Better Call Saul (turns out they don’t even have that show on there and only have extras??? What kinda of Channel doesn’t have one of their best shows on its own app?) when the show wasn’t on their I unsubscribed and uninstalled. A week later I see a $15 charge to my card and went on recently purchased to see the app charged me $5.38 x3 😐. Why? I unsubscribed before the month was finished if anything I would’ve been fine with one $5.38 charge seeing as I did end up purchasing and using premium for literally 5 minutes, but to be charge 3 times for nothing. Really?
This app works well on my phone but horrible on the firestick!
Have to restart episodes 2/5
It’s bad enough to have to watch commercials, but it’s even worse when the audio of the commercial begins before the scene ends. It throws the audio/video timing off and if you don’t restart or try to backup the episode the audio will be off in the next scene. It happens at each commercial break.
If I could rate it a 0 I would 1/5
App crashes and does not work!!
I never write these at all but I had to get my frustrations out. This app is legit a joke the commercials are every 5 minutes. And it always has trouble getting back to the show. Will load endlessly or show a frozen screen with the commercial still on screen but the show is going on because I hear it. You can’t even rewind without having to go back to the commercials. This app is a whole entire joke. Please delete this whole app if you’re not gonna make improvements to it
Just Pitiful 1/5
By click off
This is the WORSE tv channel app by far. Freezes, crashes, pauses constantly. Who ever is responsible for this mess needs to be thrashed. When other channels are doing it so much better then you know something is very wrong with the app developer/designer etc. don't waste your time with this. It will just aggravate you beyond your limit.
By violet 😆
I was trying to watch something but it was timed and half of it was just ads. What the time ran out it said I had to sign in. Why do you have to sign in to watch something? Also I don’t have a email so I couldn’t sign in if I wanted to🥺😭
Who Designed This Trash?!! 1/5
Just spend money for premium. The app says I did but when I try to watch a premium show it says I need premium. Then it takes me to a page that says I have premium. Keep getting bounced back and forth. This is ridiculous, whoever designed this app needs to go back and finish the class they apparently dropped out of. If they/ you read this then I hope you get mad I also hope you know AMC is cheating people out of money and time. I want a refund. I don’t want this trash service. None of the other streaming services are this messed up.
Oh and now it won’t let me cast to my ChromeCast... I was casting just yesterday but now it doesn’t work. Go flick yourself in the nuts you incompetent goons.
Can’t wait until AMC cancels the Walking Dead just so I can delete this app!!! There simply isn’t enough expletives to describe just how bad a sh!t show this app is and to think I actually have to pay for the frustration of using it...
Holy crap at the ads. 1/5
There are so many ads the shows are almost not even entertaining.
Absolutely horrible 1/5
Out of sync, clunky and clumsy.
By unkown missing
Do you guys even listen to feedback? At this point this app is comical. I press forward 15 seconds it brings me back 5 minutes without any function to fast forward or rewind. Absolute JOKE of an app. Save the heartache and don’t waste your time.
By smashing baby53
U watch like 10 minutes of advertising for every 5minutes of show time
Missing chrome cast button since Ios update. 1/5
By rp rick
After ios update app only has the airplay icon. Web site for amc says working to get both working. Currently only castable by airplay on ios.
By African superman
AMC has good offers and good shows I.e pay an additional $4-$5 for commercial free on tv and app. Well it works on the TV but not on the app, as it never gets past the login page for no commercial access. My advice is that DO NOT PAY FOR THE ADDITIONAL FEE, until this login issue is resolved, as you will pay for a service that you can access probably 2 times every 6 months ( if your lucky) again DO NOT GET THE APP TILL THIS ISSUE IS FIXED. This is my second complaint just FYI
Horrible experience 1/5
Plays show while playing ad so I have to go back but you can’t go back because the 15 seconds back and forward seem to go where ever it wants in the episode as well as the scrubbing
The most frustrating app you will ever use so annoying
AMC app 1/5
By james maddison 24
Do not waste your time with this app it’s a trick you cannot watch episodes on this app it’s a trick, not even worth one star total waist of time
Apple needs to remove this app from their store because the AMC Premiere service does not work.
Show segments get stuck in infinite loop 1/5
They have put so much emphasis on forcing commercials on you they neglected doing any user testing of this app. Was watching the walking dead and the app kept resetting to the same point. Even rebooting the phone didn’t help. The buttons were useless. It’s a shame that a network with such great content has such a horrible app.
Poor video controls 1/5
I tried to rewind 15 sec in an episode of the walking dead and it took me back 10 minutes or more and then it won’t let me drag the slider around to get back to where I was. When I try to hit forward 15 sec it instead goes backward 15 more sec. Now I have to rewatch the entire part plus commercials that I already saw and have no way around it. Awful.
fast forward problem 3/5
I have had a fast forward problem.Every time I try to fast forward a part of a show it sends me back to the commercial that was just on.
Nothing works. 1/5
Can’t sign in or use any of the features. Forced to use the fandango app to purchase my tickets.
Misleading ratings 1/5
The R rated horror movies available on Halloween were listed as tv-14, obviously a lower rating that would imply some editing had been done. However if any editing was done it must have been the bare minimum to be able to be called tv-14 which made for quite a horrible movie night. Don’t listen to their rating system.
Terrible app 1/5
This app is the most buggy app I have ever used. Surprising coming from a respectable company like amc. When watching your episodes, commercial breaks will randomly trigger the show to rewind back to a random point. Even if you can get past that commercial break, it’ll be fast forwarded so far that you have no idea what’s going on. This has been going on for months and I’m beyond surprised that amc has done nothing about it.
More seasons on Netflix 1/5
I paid for this just to get season 4 of Better Call Saul. They don’t even have a single episode on here. What a waste of time and money. AMC thinks it’s above Premium channels. I’ve already cancelled the sub. Very disappointing.
By Lady zombies
App constantly has a hard time connecting to my cable provider, and when videos do play, if rewind or fast forward/ move the scrub bar, episode jumps either to the very beginning, the end, or cuts to adds again. Very upsetting, all I wanna do is watch the walking dead man. Even through my browser, the amc website refuses to load videos. I literally can’t watch it either way.
I would give no stars if I could. I hate complaining but AMC has me to that point. Guess I have to watch the walking dead somewhere else, or when it comes out on DVD if that still a thing. AMC is doing horrible with ratings I guess. Did they not catch up with online streaming like everyone else? Nobody uses cable providers anymore. At least not our generation. Get it right AMC or you will go out of business very soon!
Tv Service Provider 1/5
This is an issue with a lot of apps but the fact that you need a provider is just stupid I mean that’s the whole purpose of having these apps even ones that don’t have cable but then again some apps don’t ask for it I scratch my head on the matter every time I see that smh 😡😡😡 ... Maybe just maybe amc ur app would be more useful
Is this a joke? App is horrible! 1/5
I’m having trouble trying to figure out if this is finished and working app or if it is a joke app provided by AMC. The app crashes most of the time and the streaming portion is HORRIBLE! If I press the button to back up a few seconds, it either rewinds a few mins or abruptly stops the stream all together.
Can no longer login with Direct TV 1/5
App forces email address as user id, Direct TV issued user IDs that are NOT email addresses when they consolidated accounts. No way around.
Practicality useless 1/5
By NickF 12
Often get logged out for no reason and is glitchy af! While watching on iphone/iPad if you try to use the 15 sec skip function in either direction it takes you back to the first few moments of the show no matter where you are currently at. You try to use the slide bar to skip back to the spot you wanted it takes you right back to the same spot in the first few moments of the show. Seems like the app was just rushed out to say they have an app.
Worst Channel App Ever 1/5
There is not much I can say, that hasn’t been said already about how bad this app is. If you want to watch a tv series, it will allow you to watch one show without a cable provider login, but God help you if you pause the episode or try and come back to it at another time. It will either not take up where you were when you left it, or you won’t be able to get it to play at all. And then THAT is when you are pestered about a provider login.
I just think it’s odd that this app is not up to snuff with other channel or movie apps, considering the popularity of at least one of their shows. But it truly isn’t worth downloading to any device. I deleted it.
Awful interface 1/5
The 15 second forward/back buttons seem to just put you at a random place in the episode. I was about 30 minutes into an episode of The Walking Dead and hit the 15 seconds back button. It took me back 25 minutes instead of 15 seconds. This wouldn’t be a big deal if I could use my finger to slide to where I was (you know, like you can in every other streaming app ever) but no, I have to either sit through the entire episode again or hit the 15 second forward button and hope to God this it works.
Can’t find chromecast 1/5
This is the only streaming app on my entire phone that consistently fails to find my chromecast. It’s extremely frustrating, and core functionality for a tv streaming app. Please fix!
Worthless unless you're a cable customer. 1/5
By Bigger John
Worthless unless you're a cable customer and then why would you want it?
Literally the worst app I’ve ever attempted to use. I don’t have time to go into detail with all the bugs and discrepancies with this app but I don’t not recommend it for anyone that wants to watch shows they may have missed on tv, find some other streaming site.
Useless for DirecTV/AT&T subscribers 1/5
Please fix the login issue for DirecTV users. When DirecTV merged with AT&T, we were forced to create a new login ID to link all of our accounts together. Our login ID is no longer an email address, but when logging in on the AMC app, you are not allowed to enter anything other than an email address!!!!
Please optimize size for iOS iPhone XS Max, it’s small on the phone when the phone is full screen, when the screen is stretched the show/movie characters are stretched as well. Please Fix
Cable free and frustrated. 1/5
Wish they would come out with a version where you can pay to subscribe without having a service provider I’m cable free and have to subscribe to Philo to watch The Walking Dead, Fear and talking dead. Wish they’d get with the times and offer this channel by itself like hbo STARZ and cbs.
15 seconds or 15 minutes? 3/5
The 15 second skip button is beyond glitchy. Will either send you back to the beginning of your episode or send you back to last ad segment. Also is there no place to adjust quality. Not trying to watch shows in 360p.
Ffwd and Rwd don’t work 1/5
It is the most frustrating thing. I keep falling asleep on episodes, so when O come back to them and try to get to the last point I recall, the features to scroll fwd and rewind absolutely do not work. I can only watch the beginning of TWD so many times! Good grief! At this point in time and development of working streaming apps, this should be a non-issue. AMC should ashamed of themselves. The app is glitchy, crashes, and basically barely functional. Hardly representative of your content. Your going to lose viewers and subscribers because the app is is worse than sub-par.
The worst 2/5
Two stars, because it works sometimes. Otherwise, the worst of all TV apps. Too many reasons to list.
Great movies. App is terrible 2/5
By I'm the machine
App is very glitchy. Can’t control the movie all the time. Sometimes it works. Sometimes nothing. Disconnects randomly. Starts entire movie over. Honestly the app has been awful since the beginning. Disappointing to say the least. Especially when most other apps stream so well.
