Shows do not show 1/5
Whenever I try to watch a show all I can see is the advertisement. I can watch the show currently showing, access the schedule but whenever I try to see other shows I get an ad and then nothing after.
Horribly designed Apple TV app 2/5
I can’t believe how terrible the Apple TV app is. Unintuitive, weird scrolling, confusing categories. But the worst thing is the auto playing. I’m scrolling through and the app suddenly goes black as it tries to auto play a show I haven’t chosen. And there’s no way to turn it off! It’s rage inducing.
App constantly crashes in the middle of streams. Great when it works
What good is this app 1/5
By Lit 159
What is good about this if you have to have cable to use the app
Should be able to download episodes to watch without WiFi. 1/5
I was hoping to be able to download with this app.
Live stream cuts out 2/5
I love HGTV but can not get the Live Stream to stay on for more than one or two episodes on my phone or when casting to one of our other TVs. Even our Fire Stick cuts out. I know it’s this app in particular because no other channel apps do this.
I love HGTV not so keen on the App 3/5
The HGTV app has so many bugs, on my fire stick and on my phone it will just reset itself and send me home, or just stop playback altogether.
FIX THE APP 1/5
It always force closes in the middle of a show. FIX THE BUGS
Nashville flip/flop 5/5
Just discovered this funny/dynamic couple!
Love the app BUT crashes a lot 4/5
When I go in to look at a show it closes out of the app a lot. I have to re open the episode a few times before I can get it to load.
Not playing nice with Xfinity on Apple TV 1/5
Seems like every week I have to redo the activation code. Not sure if the problem is with Apple TV or my cable provider but it’s annoying!
Best app 5/5
By Pixel mania is the best
I love this app because I can always watch my favorite show, House Hunters International
Loses casting constantly 1/5
By Update my device?
Slow to load, lots of pauses even on >100MB connection
“Can’t authenticate with my provider” 1/5
Not sure what “can’t authenticate with my provider”means?? I have Spectrum/Time Warner- use that app ALL THE TIME so not sure why I can’t log on. I will try back in a couple of days and if doesn’t work, I will delete the app.
Faltan muchas series! 3/5
Me gusta el app, por qué tiene soporte para Chrome Cast, pero no tiene todas las series qué hay...
It’s fine, I guess. 3/5
Not many episodes for each of the shows. I didn’t have any issues with signing on. My biggest complaint are the commercials! Look, I’m paying to watch your shows and when I record them on my dvr I can fast forward thru commercials. Have the courtesy to limit how many you FORCE us to watch! You cannot think people will stay with your app when you don’t list your whole catalogue and make us watch commercials that account for about 20% of the total run time.
Crashing and crashing and crashing! 1/5
By Lazer Me Kid
Constantly crashes. Connects just fine but will only stay connected for about a minute or two before the connection fails or the app crashes.
SHOWS END EARLY....30 MORE SECONDS PLEASE!!!! 4/5
I love this app. It lets me watch my favorite shows anywhere. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because the final mommy's of the shows cut off before the show ends. Many of the shows on HGTV tell you whether or not a house sold or the sales price of a home in the final moments of the show. This app cuts off before that information is given.
Too many commercials. I never even saw the show!
Why so many flip shows. 3/5
By Daily Bible Reader I
Can you bring back show like design on a dime. I enjoy Brooks and Mortar. Will there be more than one episode?
Can’t change providers 2/5
It was working fine until I changed tv / internet providers, but the app won’t let me change it, so I can’t watch any full episodes (just the end-of-episode recaps).
I changed it on my iPhone, didn’t affect the app. I deleted the app a few times, still won’t change. I tried signing out of the app, won’t let me. PLEASE FIX!
Doesn't support DirecTV Now activation. 2/5
Neither the iPad, iPhone nor Apple TV versions of this app support activation through DirecTV Now -- not to be confused with satellite-based DirecTV -- which almost all other popular channels already do. Please add support for DirecTV Now soon!
NEW HGTV app user NOT impressed 1/5
I have entered my TV provider on my iOS device, with HGTV enabled... yet the app will not recognize my login AND will not allow me to enter my TV provider in the app because it only shows the top 8 or so. When I click on "more providers" it says it doesn't recognize my provider. (My provider IS listed in other providers on HGTV.com.) Super frustrated. (FYI, things also are not working when I try to watch on my MacBook entering my TV provider info.) Problems abound.
Love and hate 2/5
Such a love hate relationship with this app. I love hgtv and being able to watch anywhere anytime but so few to watch and they come and go so quickly! I also can't get over the fact that the end of EVERY SINGLE ONE is cut off. I hate that soooooo much. I need the end! I hate 2 minute clip. What's the point?? Make me think I have 20 episodes to watch oh nope, Only 3 are longer then 2 minutes.
Invalid code 1/5
By Monte love
I enter code so I can log in with my cable provider and keep getting message that it's an invalid code
Missing DirectTV Now provider 1/5
Giving this a one star because it does not include DirectTV Now in the TV provider list. Most other apps support it now.
“Television service provider” required 1/5
Alas, the good HGTV programs are only accessible if you have a tv service provider. Verizon, AT&T and their buddies win again. They don’t tell you upfront that a service provider log-in is required. Oh, they will let me view the trailers. :)
Best ever 5/5
I LOVE HGTV so having it in an app is wonderful. Only negative is I would love more show options too.
App crashes 1/5
Everytime I’m going to turn my phone sideways to make the screen bigger, the app crashes.
PLEASE! Get better at your advertising!!! 3/5
I don’t mind watching a commercial or two, you’ve got to pay the bills, but watching the SAME commercial over and over again is seriously annoying. PLEASE add some variety.
This year the White House reflects the true class it has lacked for the past 8 years. Timeless beauty and classic elegance!! The fine simple touches are amazing!! Kudos to the volunteers and to the TRUMPS for bringing back the LOVE OF COUNTRY TO AMERICA!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!
Great App 5/5
By Cordova Dad
This is a great app. I thoroughly enjoy having all of the great shows on demand.
Fix your app! 1/5
The AppleTV app is basically useless. Why offer the option of Live TV if it’s not going to work? The interface is annoying and clunky. Terrible, terrible, terrible.
Great App 5/5
The app was easy to launch and view selected TV shows through my cable provider. I have been pleased that I haven’t experienced any streaming disruptions.
iOS App needs fixed 1/5
I’m not sure what changed but we used to enjoy this app often up until a couple months ago. So the banner overlay at the top that displays : Home Love TV Shows Search and Settings is stuck at the top of our screen. All the way to the right side it displays Done and green circle with a check mark. The banner is well over 5” and eats up way too much of our tv to even enjoy it. We have tried deleting it to install it again. We have signed out and back in again to no avail. I hope this bug is fixed soon as we miss watching our favorite shows!!
Restarts shows at the hour 1/5
Great app except for a major flaw. On Roku episodes will restart whenever the time changes to a new hour.... so if you start a house hunters at 10:50, at 11:00 it will automatically restart that episode, causing you to have to fast forward and find your spot.... this has been an error since they redesigned the app.
Quit cutting the full episodes short! 2/5
This is typically my go to app if I have some “free” time somewhere. Lately though all the full episodes are cut short by a couple minutes. What’s the point of watching if I can’t watch until the end?? Please fix this!
Nice App 5/5
In trying to sign into my cable provider, no more providers showed up. Had to turn off HGTV under TV Provider in settings to get it to work properly.
Can’t access cable providers 5/5
I previously was able to watch the shows through my cable provider. Now it only lists 8 providers and the More Providers button does not work. Very frustrating. Was a 5 Star and when fixed will return to 5 Star.
UPDATE: contacted customer service. Their response and it worked.
“If you'll go to your iPhone or iPad's settings, then scroll down to TV Provider and select it, please turn off the switch beside 'HGTV'. After this, please close the app from running in the background of your device then reopen it. Then, when you select Sign In within our app, you should be able to select your provider to sign in.”
Sign in 4/5
Recently had problems signing in and contacted customer support. I was told to go to settings on my phone and look up tv provider and then toggle off the hgtv button. After closing out the hgtv app and reopening, I was then able to find my provider and sign in. Thanks customer support.
Use once 1/5
By Nob p
Signed thru my service provider Suddenlink on day I downloaded app watched a show next day try to sign to my provider and Suddenlink does not exist on provider list. Not worth time to download!
Unable to login in to cable provider 1/5
What junk. The whole premise is to let cable subscribers use this and the login feature shows no providers other than the eight or so that paid to be seen. What a joke.
By Jason Brown IPad
Will not allow me to select Orbitel as my cable supplier. It will not pull them up on the available list but they are an available cable company. I was able to set it up on the web as well as with a droid phone. App needs to be fixed.
Sign in 1/5
Can’t sign in if the the provider is not on the first screen. Useless
NO Spectrum/Time Warner Cable??? 1/5
This is confusing. It lets me watch on my home TWC app but there’s no where to pick on the drop down menu when signing in “TWC or spectrum”. Boo
Way too many ADs 2/5
Every couple of minutes, you have to watch the same 5 ads over and over again. It’s so annoying. Please stop with the frequency of the ads. It makes me want to stop using this app.
It doesn’t work. When I click on the program I would like to view, it gets stuck on the black screen with the spinning circle.
Sign in not working 2/5
Normally I love this app. But for some reason right now when I click on more providers nothing happens. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and it did not help.
My Go To App!!! 5/5
When all the other channels have the same old same old, I go to HG to discover more about the world.. thank you!!
