Shark week 5/5
Best streaming ever 5/5
Awesome but….. 4/5
I get tired of signing in every week to watch shows. With all the information given; why does one have to repeatedly log in to the discovery app each week. Showtime is the only app worse.
The adds are to long
Can’t Watch Shows! 3/5
I normally love this app, but there is a recent bug that won’t let me watch any shows, stating I have to have a paid subscription to watch. I do have it through cable! Fix this please.
I got it at 3 stars now just for good measure. I’ll change it later depending on how good shark week is
Almost good unless you need to rewind or move forward when watching. 2/5
App is decent if all is working well. I understand the need for commercials but why do you keep forcing them if you fast forward or rewind?
This is also an issue if the app crashes. If you want to improve user experience only display commercials after a certain amount of watch time has elapsed and not whether a user fast forwards to a later time in a show. Take a look at how YouTube does it.
The Worst Streaming App Available 1/5
Commercials are 1 thing, but this app takes it to a level beyond tolerable. Seriously.
If you decide to stop watching, get ready for more commercials just to start watching again. And that’s IF it starts you where you left off! But that’s HIGHLY unlikely! 9 times out of 10, whether I’m watching on my TV or phone, it starts me much further back than I left off. And THEN, you have even more commercials to watch to get back to where you were.
Take today for example… I had to stop my show to go take care of some errands. Commercials came on before I could stop it, so I waited until they were over before I stopped it so I hopefully wouldn’t have to watch them when I came back. NO SUCH LUCK. After sitting through the 7 ads before I stopped it, I had to sit through 8 more before the show started again.
THE WORST STREAMING APP AVAILABLE!!
Terrible terrible terrible 1/5
By Beeg doofus
The app never lets you resume watching a show. It will restart the show and if you try to fast forward to where you left off watching last time your forced to watch a minimum 16 commercials. I shouldnt have to watch 8 commercials only to realize I still need to fast forward some more. It’s 2021 why can I not stop watching then come and resume where i left off later. Discovery should be embarrassed by this app.
Discovery Go 5/5
I love this channel!!!
Great unless forced to watch commercials 5/5
Which can be 3 minutes
Streaming in 2007 1/5
This app would be great if you got a DeLorean up to 88 mph and went back to 2007. But unfortunately time travel doesn’t exist here in 2021, and this app is terrible. It’s terrible on iOS, and it’s terrible on an Xbox. It wants me to continue watching episodes I have finished and they just stay there telling me to continue watching. The ads are ridiculous. There are more ads on here than if you watched it on TV. An hour long show takes way longer than an hour to watch. It’s almost as if they forgot they had this app and service so they stopped developing any updates that actually make it work like it should in the 2020s. Just spend a little time on your UI please!
Ads are abundant 1/5
By Dean Trenton
And will glitch and play ads for a second time. So 6 minutes of ads sometime. Awful
Too many commercials!!!!! 3/5
By Discovery No-Go
Decent app if it werent to the (literally) 45 commercials per episode! For a 1 1/2 hour show it takes 2 hours to watch it!!!
Signs me out 1/5
Won’t allow me to sign in through the direct tv appt
Re-authenticate frequently 3/5
The app is worthy of five stars but with many of the videos the quite frequent pop up “Need to re-authenticate” with your TV provider is very annoying. A simple sign out from my provider and sign back in DOES NOT fix the issue. The app must be deleted and reinstalled and the program video is then unlocked and then becomes available for viewing.
However, with the most recent reviews dated at least two years ago (it’s now April 2021) it appears that the developers just don’t care!
Way too glitchy 1/5
Half the time it doesn’t remember my credentials logs me out over and over again not worth the time. I don’t write a lot of reviews, this app annoyed me enough for me to go out of my way to write this review.
Way too many ads! 1/5
Way too many advertisements! Sometimes 5 or 7 ads at a time every few minutes. Just unacceptable really. I get you need a couple, but come on man, three minutes at a time? Ridiculous. I’ve posted this one star review while ignoring your commercials.
Beats the re-runs on Regular tv 5/5
By Smokin 57
A very wonderful selection
Content is great. App is HORRIBLE 3/5
It has a ton of cool shows. Only thing, the app is missing BASIC features. First of all, there is no customization and setting preferences. Second, there are so many ads, I can’t scrub or move forward in a video if I want to skip apart of the video because I get ads. Third, there is no customization of the Closed Captioning. I prefer setting my captions a little see through and green! Most importantly THERE IS NO WAY TO DOUBLE TAP TO MOVE FORWARD OR BACK. Yt and D+ both have the option to double tap either sides of the screen to move forward or back 10 or 5 seconds. PLEASE JUST ADD THAT IT ISNT EVEN HARD TO ADD. LIKE EVEN I COULD CODE THAT. And when I scrub or try to move in a video, there is no preview. Also they need to add Picture in Picture and better organization. Please make this app better, and use Ytube as inspiration. I hope the developers see this and don’t ignore their customers. I will make my review better if they stop spamming ads and they add quality of life features that every other video app has. But as I said great content.
Please remove commercials 1/5
Great Library, But... 2/5
I can’t describe how annoying it is to be fast forwarding and being forced to watched 5-7 ads every time you hit one of the “ad bars” on your video progress. Switching between tv and mobile, it doesn’t save my most recent spot on the shows I watch. So when I am scrolling through an episode, I constantly have to watch all of these ads even though I haven’t found the point I was last at yet. And you can’t back out of the ads once you trigger them. Currently looking for a point I was last at and I have already had to watch 19 ads. So, so very annoying and wasting my time. There has to be a better way.
Súper genial puedo ver todos mis programas
Glitchy app 1/5
The app is very glitchy when installed. I tried to reinstall the app after not being able to sign in so I could watch a show. After I reinstalled it the show was gone and can’t find it anywhere.
Too Much Commercials!! 1/5
By Christian Urbina
Usually when ever I’m watching a video or a show from a different app I get 1 to 2 commercials which I’m fine with but when I’m watching a show on Discovery Go that’s around 30-50 mins long. Around a quarter way through around 15 minutes I get 7 commercials in a row that I have to watch even sometimes I get another 1 commercial or 2!
No sound when casting 1/5
No sound when casting
Too many ads 3/5
I think that there are too many ads for having to pay to way the app. If the app were free it would be one thing but having to pay and watch more ads then there is show is not cool.
App not working 2/5
Your app isn’t working... I won’t let me sign it or watch anything on my phone. And i updates it on my amazon fire stick to watch on tv and now it doesn’t work on there either. I hope u didn’t fuss with it and screw it up on purpose so everyone has to stream and pay with the new discovery plus app.. not everyone can afford tons of streaming apps you have to pay for... hope this issue is fixed.
Great app 4/5
Love the app, has all the shows I want to watch but they should add support for the Picture in Picture apple mode where u can watch while doing something else. Other than that all good
Discovery Go ap 4/5
Love this channel but can’t afford to stream it.
Total rip-off 1/5
By Feline Muse
Greed is alive and well. I won’t pay for old episodes of any show and will only watch what airs new. I’m already paying for cable so why pay more for streaming old shows? I love 90 Day but will give it up if they move it all to this service.
Discovery Plus 5/5
It’s nice to finally be in control other than wait for shows to be added on Directv’s
On Demand listings. It’s an all new format but so far “ No Complaints “
Love it! 5/5
I love the discovery channel! The only reason I have cable is for this channel, now I can get rid of it and just get the app. Now you guys just need to incorporate history channel on it and it will be perfect!!
App works great on IPad but can’t get the app to open on iPhone. I’ve tried restarting my phone and everything I can think of.
App crashes after a short time running cant even start a show needs to be updated. App keeps freezing. Very disappointed
Streaming with ads 1/5
By The great Andrew B
Trash. Get rid of ads and then we’ll talk
Ads out of control 2/5
Start a show? Commercials. Need to rewind? Commercials. Accidentally back out of video? 2 sets of commercials! Need to fast forward? You guessed it, commercials.
5-7 commercials seems to be the average I’m seeing per break. You are not able to fast forward past a commercial break, even if you are trying to get to last half of video. You must stop at each one.
Otherwise it is an ok app. Add some quality of life changes and I will adjust my rating.
Episodes disappearing 1/5
Why are episodes all of a sudden disappearing and expiring?
I went to catch up on Gold Rush and episode 6 of the current season is no longer available. Also BattleBots episode 1 of the current season says it will expire in a few days even though there are only two episodes right now.
The whole point of these apps is to be able to go back and watch when you can. Very disappointing.
Missing episodes on Gold Rush 1/5
By Vassar guy81
In the past I used to be able to binge watch 5 or 6 episodes of Gold Rush since there were always all of the episodes on Discovery Go. I was quite surprised when I logged in today and found that there was only the latest episode. There’s a whole bunch of “The Dirt” and other special show but only one of season 11. What gives ?
Discovery go app 5/5
I love this app but the downside is that I am trying to find an episode on Naked and afraid XL season 5 the episode is no hand outs
Strange things happen shows disappear overnight!!! 2/5
I was watching the Discovery show “Flying Wild Alaska” using the app both on my smart TV and iPad, in fact watched an episode last night and today I log in on my pad and usually if you were watching an episode and you didn’t completely finish watching it, the next time you logged in, it gave you the option to continue watching from where you left off. But when I went back in today, that option did not show up!!
I remember this show when it first aired, so I have had the app for a while and just recently downloaded the app to my smart TV so I could watch the three seasons and all the episodes, that way I could see what I may have missed when it originally aired. So I did a search for the show and it stated no show existed!! If the show was dropped from Discovery Go, can someone tell me if that is the case please? Thanks in advance! I believe I can stream episodes through one of the streaming services but since I’ve been paying for Discovery for a long time through my cable company, I would hope I can watch it again on the the app for free! Discovery gets triple paid for these shows as it is, commercials tv through cable, the cable company, which is me paying them to pay you and through other streaming and other streaming services!
Hopefully I can finish watching what I started watching! It’s to bad that there was no warning somehow that this show was going away! Unless there is an issue with the app??
I would do a higher rating but as it stands now, it’s pretty crappy pulling the rug from under peoples feet!
More commercials than programming 1/5
Perhaps one of the worst streaming services. A 40 minute episode takes 90 minutes to watch. More commercials than actual programming. Painfully unwatchable.
Very interesting and entertaining 5/5
I love discovery go
Absolutely Horrible App 1/5
If you want to be aggravated, this is the app for you. I tried this app on my ipad and, assuming you can get through the cumbersome sign in process in less than 3 attempts, you'll find the app crashes when you try to play something. I even tried it on my Firestick. I got the "Success" screen after going through the sign in process, which is even more cumbersome since you have to use the remote, only to have everything lock up at that point. Save the storage space on your device for something that works.
Update: Received an email from the developer telling me to sign out and then sign in again. If that didn't work then I was to submit a ticket. Since I couldn't ever get signed in on the Firestick, this wasn't an option. I did as suggested on the ipad with the same result - app crashed when I tried to play a show. Following my own advice, the app has now been deleted from both devices.
Good content but overloaded with adds. 3/5
Discovery has a vast library of free content for the curious mind. Unfortunately, there’s an average of eight commercial brakes per episode, and they contain up to five adds each. You can access live TV and extra content by connecting your TV provider, but you can’t get rid of the adds.
Doesn't work 1/5
App hasn't worked since last update. Any video I try to play immediately crashes the app on my iPad. Worked just fine before the update
Better than Fios 5/5
By Mario Tejada
I have Fios. Their on demand is trash! You only get a couple of episodes per season. The rest you have to pay for LOL. Per episode 😂 wth am I paying for cable!? The DiscoveryGo app is AMAZING! You get the usable ads which is perfectly fine. You get all the episodes. You really can’t co plain. Only flaw is that if you leave the app and come back or close it and come back. You have to rewatch the ads.
Great tv 5/5
I love this channel because it has the best shows.
Cue and rewind icon 3/5
By Spatty batty
If only it had a 10 seconds ff and rewind tab. That would make it great!
