Love the new update 5/5
Love the updates but the Apple TV update that rebranded the crtv app to BlazeTV took away the archive section that was on the crtv app before the rebranding please add that section back to Apple TV app other than that I love the new update also when will the Old Blaze archive be added to the new app
Sacked Gavin 1/5
What a disappointment, spent a lot of money and time with this app, loved it and the content. Now that you sacked Gavin you are just as bad as YouTube and Twitter. Shame.
YouTube brought me here... 4/5
I stumbled on this Steven Crowder guy last fall and shared his videos with my teenage sons. We cut the cable cord awhile ago and stream A Lot of content. I had never desired to pay for additional subscription services, as I already paid monthly for Kindle unlimited, Amazon Prime and Netflix. However, as we watched more and more variety of subscription upload shows I decided to try out a Louder With Crowder subscription late December 2018 which fell right after CRTV and The Blaze apparently merged.
I look forward to learning my way around the show menu and the return of Crowder will be like the Super-Bowl in my home!
Many thanks to the customer service rep. Laura who helped me install the apps over the phone on my home TV sets! Looking forward to using my subscription to its fullest!
Audio only mode 4/5
Please please please add audio only switch option so I can listen and multitask on my phone and listen while driving. Love the content. App works great otherwise.
Canceling my subscription! 2/5
I have recently learned that the “Blaze” is associated with “never-Trumper” Glen Beck—the guy who mocked our president by smashing his face in a bowl of Cheetos. I don’t appreciate their advertising Gavin McCinis and Michel Maulkin as part of their line up, then firing them. Now, the only people worth paying to watch are Louder with Crowder and Mark Levin. Hardly worth the subscription price. I can watch both of them for free elsewhere. Too bad. CRTV should have left it as it was—independent broadcasting not beholden to advertisers. Dropping Gavin and Michelle right after the published hit peace Labeling them “white supremacist” proves otherwise. Shame.
To Glenn Beck 5/5
We are so proud that he and his team have joined up with CRTV. I also love Steve Deace snd his team, Mark Levin and others.
Congratulations and may God continue to bless these gentlemen and give them wisdom in how they present their shows.
Issues with app but great content 4/5
I have complaints about the app itself though. The old app, when it was just The Blaze, you could “rewind” three hours during the live broadcast whereas with the new app you can only do thirty seconds. Where I live Glenn’s radio program comes on at 6:00 AM on the app so I could always rewind to the beginning of the program when I woke up at 7:00 AM. I can’t do that now, I have to wait until the program is put in the actual show page which isn’t until 4 or 5:00 in the afternoon or even the next day. The full show was always available to watch on the show page within the app after about an hour or two of the show ending but now I have to wait until the next sometimes which I don’t like at all. Bring back the three hour “rewind” during the live broadcast! And bring back the quick upload of shows after they air!
Excellent content, not so great app 3/5
The content is excellent and worth the subscription. The app layout isn’t too bad but the fact that I can’t play without the app up front makes it frustrating. Want to browse the internet and check mail while listening? Nope! Want to drive with your phone dark while listening? Nope! Also has trouble resuming where you left off and occasionally switches shows while watching another (although this may be due to leaving the screen on with my phone aimed down while in the car because the app has to be on and front and center to play). Fix the app and I’ll fix my rating to 5 starts. Still worth a subscription though.
A sad, terrible loss for CRTV. 1/5
This merger/unannounced change has been terrible. I was subscribed, but once the changes started, I waited it out before paying again, and now that I see you’ve fired Gavin, Crowder has slowed down, Glenn Beck is now a part of it, and other things I may have not noticed, I cannot subscribe any longer. What a shame. It was good while it lasted. I thought very highly of Levin until I found out he’s working with Glenn Beck. Yikes. I even bought his fathers children books, I hope I don’t end up regretting that.
I love The Blaze & CRtv merge! 5/5
By Indy historybuff
I’ve been a member of The Blaze for years & couldn’t afford CRtv. When Glenn & Mark started broadcasting during Glenn’s radio show I was happy & now thrilled about the merge.
United We Stand! We will all be stronger together.
For all you CRtv guys that haven’t had a lot of experience listening to Glenn, I say be patient & listen to his heart, from which he primarily speaks.
I’m a little dyslexic & sometimes when I see Glenn transpose his words ~ boy do feel at home!
If it wasn’t for The Glenn Beck, I wouldn’t have learned about The Nazarene Fund & Our rescue of trafficked children.
I knew of David Barton, my favorite historian, from Joyce Meyer Ministries but very well.
Now, because of The Vault etc.,
I can almost quote him David Barton. I wished I could go to the museum they have from time to time.
For you all who don’t know Mark,
don’t worry when he gets that’s serious look,
he’s not mad, hah.
Mark is a rock-solid conservative.
So if you love this country & TRUE conservatism, you’ll love this merge. I so happy now I can delete some of my old shows from my DVR.
John S. 5/5
By John S in Atl
Just a quick note to the folks at BlazeTV ! Great job !! I’m am so very happy with the transition from CRTV ! I was a fan of Mr Glen and Co. back when he was with SiriusXM on 125. I have continued to listen to the channel in his absence and was pleased to find out that he is now with the great group from CRTV! I don’t really mind the how and why - doesn’t matter ! I can get him and all of my other Patriots in one location... Happy, Happy, Happy! Keep up the great work !
Missing Gavin McInnes 3/5
By Ms Claus
I was used to starting my day with Gavin. I loved both of his shows and I miss him terribly. I am a 70 year old female who found Gavin to be a patriotic American with a great sense of humor. I am thinking of canceling my subscription now that he is not on.
Enjoy the new facelift 4/5
I am really enjoying the new face lift since the merger and the app runs smooth. My only complaint is that there is not enough content in the ‘recently added’ section, only 6 of the latest. This causes me to go to my favorite shows individually to see if they have added anything new which is tedious.
Is there anyway to add a tab for recently added shows for the ‘day of...’? This would be a great feature and would make it easier to find a list of shows for each day.
Keep up the great work.
Bring back Gavin 1/5
Only subscribed for crowder and Gavin and now that Gavin is gone I probably won’t renew. Beck is gonna kill crtv
No Gavin 1/5
Only live on the app?? 4/5
Why can’t I watch live crtv on my smart tv
News articles? 2/5
By Gulf Garden
Where are the news articles? I loved reading them on the Blaze when I couldn’t stream a show.
Love the content but... 3/5
I love the new layout and expanded content but the new app is missing any radio link. Would like to see a radio link come back
No Gavin, No Good 1/5
Went downhill fast once they walked Gavin. Nobody interesting on the platform. Just a bunch of normie conservatives now. Might as well be the Republican wing of the NPC culture. Waste of time and money.
Why did you let Gavin go? 1/5
By Seamus Amongus
Y’all wrong for this.
So happy with new Blaze TV 5/5
Have always loved The Blaze and Glenn Beck, but also fans of all the people on CRTV! I was thrilled when they merged so I could afford both platforms. Looking forward to who they add in the future. I love the diversity of thought, and that I can listen to so many thoughtful conservatives. Something for everyone, and each supporting the Conservative cause. Keep up the great work! Don’t listen to the negativity, we need to pull together. It’s tough enough out there. Stand Fast!
I loved crtv but f the blaze 1/5
I loved crtv it was my most used app in the house but because glen beck can’t keep his neocon hands off good work I unsubscribed. F glen beck. We love you Gavin and crowder.
slightly better 4/5
I love that the app now remembers where I am in a show and picks up where I left off... but for the love, can you please make it so I can still listen outside of the app and not have it go back to where I was when I left the app? The old Blaze app had this ability and I hate that this one does not.
Give Glenn a listen 5/5
I have listened to Glenn faithfully for years. He is one the most fair minded people on TV. He listens to all sides and is willing to have conversations with people who don’t agree with him and be kind to them. Imagine that in today’s climate. I hope all subscribers will listen and learn from him. He is an example of a hard fought journey into good in his life.
Bring Back Gavin 1/5
I was excited about the merge of Blaze and CRTV and signed up immediately. But extremely disappointed with the disassociation of Gavin. I will not be proceeding with membership past the 30 day trial. There is no free speech anywhere anymore. Extremely extremely disappointing. Shame on you Glenn Beck. Shame.
What happened to Gavin?? 1/5
Let me get this straight.. Gavin was banned from YouTube and fired from BlazeTV on the same day? I don’t know the details but it sounds fishy. Bring him back.
CRTV has gone ablaze. What once had so much potential is now a farce. Will not renew my subscription.
CRTV Come Back 1/5
Let face it Gavin’s shows (along with Louder with Crowder) were the only informative shows on the app that were also extremely entertaining. I do love a lot of the different voices on the app but watching Gavin and Crowder was always my first go twos do to the humor and momentum they carry throughout their episodes. Now that Crowder is on a medical hiatus Gavin was the only really relax and kickback, good mood show to watch on there. I do not like the merger and hopefully if enough of us subscribers voice our disproval CRTV will come back to its glory days of true, unfiltered free speech.
Looks like at this point I’ll be keeping my subscription until Crowder comes back and then I’ll just be subscribing to Mug Club, a subscription with a company that will back up my moral beliefs.
Canceled my subscription 1/5
Only subscribed in the first place for Gavin. Getting rid of him will pan out to be the worst decision you guys could’ve made. I’m sure people are canceling by the thousands.
By gray headed quilter
Since you have incorporated crtv and the blaze I am watching and all of a sudden the program will stop and go to the beginning of the show again. Very frustrating. Never had this problem wit crtv. Sharon Konrad
Glen Beck ruined it! 1/5
CRTV was awesome because of Gavin McInnes, I bought Glen Becks book because Gavin endorsed it now he kicks him off. Canceled my subscription until Gavin is back on.
I’m very disappointed with the loss of Gavin McInnes and Michelle Malkin. I think everyone is. I’ll keep the app, because I do watch Crowder, Levin, Wilkow and Jon Miller, but getting rid of Gavin because he’s mildly controversial is just cowardly. Ryan, Gavin’s sound guy and cohost said you told them BlazeTV was going to be a big conservative ark to keep people safe from the flood of liberal censorship. Great job you did, you kicked them out in the cold. Cowards
Buyer Beware! 1/5
This is a total rip-off. It was great when it was just Levin TV, but now the app doesn’t work so I can’t actually see any of the shows I’ve actually paid for, which kinda makes this fraudulent. Also, I can’t seem to cancel my subscription. What started out as a good idea from Levin turned into a money-making opportunity for Glenn Beck.
No Gavin McInnes no crtv 1/5
I was thinking about getting a subscription to crtv to watch Steven Crowder, Gavin McInnes, Mark Levin, but after the blaze and stupid Glenn beck joined and then fired Gavin McInnes there is no way in hell am I getting a subscription to crtv/ blaze tv.
Glen Beck ruined it 1/5
Used to be a good app, but Glen Beck needs to go.
They Sold Out 2/5
Crtv was a great source of news, current events and entertaining conservative shows, but since the merger with the blaze network they have lost two of their best shows, outing Gavin McInnes and Michelle Malkin. Two free speech activists. While I don’t know the specifics of the breakup because no one will comment, I’ve withdrawn my subscription and received a refund. I don’t know exactly what’s going on but it smells fishy. Only getting 1 out of 3 shows I joined the network for, is not worth my $100/year. I do apologize for the low rating, this network does still have a lot of quality conservative shows still on it.
Glenn is awesome. Never want to miss him and his gang.
Wonderful Content 5/5
Love the Merge! Glenn is an incredible human and Mercury One has helped so many across the globe! I know from personal experience! Looking forward to new shows ahead!
Not a fan of the choice to take Gavin off but that’s a different topic. App used to be good till it updated. Now it starts over what I’m watching 3 times within one episode. This happens with fast or not as fast internet. It’s pretty annoying. Please fix this.
Fire Gavin? Bye! 1/5
I cancelled my subscription after Gavin McInnes was fired. I only subscribed to watch his shows. Good luck getting people to pay to see Glenn Beck. LOL.
No written news. Nothing for free 1/5
I loved the blaze because I got a lot of my news there. I can’t watch tv at work but I was able to read articles and stay current. New app looks great but you can’t watch any of it without logging in (and paying) for it. I just want the articles back. Please done make us go to huff post for news.
Needs work 2/5
As many others have stated in their reviews, there are some basic issues that need to be addressed.
1.) with the latest update, it will just start over from the beginning while you’re in the middle of a video. Sometimes this happens more than once. C’mon!
2.) No support for headphone play/pause control. This is basic iOS functionality...again, c’mon!
3.) “Resume playing” functionality iffy at best.
4.) No background playback support. The is a paid subscription service, this should be a high priority.
Will not renew because of Gavin 1/5
By Parker T. D.
I bought a subscription because crowded and Gavin, without these 2 you will not have my business.
Awesome until they merged with Blaze and removed Gavin Mcinnes. Way to go..
By Regular normal human
I enjoyed the variety of shows and content with CRTV but this new setup is rubbishy trash. I will not be renewing my subscription if Gavin is not on. I lost all my favorited shows. Free speech is lost on most platforms I guess. Cowards and hypocrites. Where’s your pussyhats?
By Can't stump the Trump 2016
CRTV was better off without Looney Glenn Beck. Gavin Mcinnes was the only reason I subscribed to your mediocre app. I let it slide when Beck bought you losers out, but now that you scumbags have fired Gavin, you have also lost a subscriber. Good luck. You’ll need it with Beck running the show.
Not interested after the merger. 2/5
It seems like the glory days of CRTV are over now, with the merger of the Blaze. Canceling Gavin McInnes (both shows) has lost them my subscription.
Loved CRTV - BLAZEtv not so much. 2/5
I’ll admit, when the merger first happened I wasn’t upset because I got more content. I originally subscribed to join LWC’s #MugClub and for GOML w/Gavin McInnes. Since then this company has decided to fire Gavin without any reasoning while misleading his fans to think his show would stay. I hope Crowder will wise up and move on to bigger, better things with his fan base and I hope Gavin can find his voice somewhere.
There’s enough censorship going on with the liberal media and this is truly disappointing, so make what you want with this review but I no longer support BLAZEtv and have rescinded my subscription (can still get some LWC on YouTube for now).
YES!! Finally!! 2/5
So glad these two companies have merged! We now get a plethora of viewpoints from a multitude of hosts. So happy I’m a BlazeTV subscriber. Keep up the Great Work!!!! ...oh, and give all the cheeses to Hopper!! 😆.
🔺VERY DISAPPOINTED TO FIND OUT GAVIN MCINNES HAS BEEN FIRED FROM CR/BLAZE TV!! VERY BAD MOVE!! It will definitely affect future re-subscription possibilities. So much for letting people you don’t 100% agree with have a platform, eh? Such a huge mistake that won’t pass without repercussions. Bad move BLAZE, VERY BAD MOVE!! 🤦♂️
