Well the app went good for the first trial. Then as soon as I try the next day it starts messing up every episode at 32 min in. But somehow plays the commercials just fine. Really losing interest fast
Swamp People! LANDRY FAN! 5/5
I love Swamp People and the Landry Family. I hope you don’t cancel them ever.
Fan of Forged in Fire, Oak Island & anything Vikings or Templars. 5/5
I love this app. It's way better on my iPad than Spectrum TV. I read some of the other reviews complaining about commercials. They are annoying for sure. However, I watch a lot of TV on Netflix commercial free. But I pay a monthly fee for that privilege. This app is free!! Watching all those commercials is my way of paying for the HISTORY app.
Garbage app. Try to watch an episode and commercials every five minutes. Also alway the same commercials over and over. Yes I would love to buy a Mercedes but the dealership ad was from Sacramento ca yet I live in Portland or. Same for the ac and heating and cooling ads and the crappy interactive ad for a health system in the Bay Area
Too many commercials... 1/5
Not worth using since the commercial breaks are longer than the typical television breaks.
I think I’m deaf now... 3/5
I love the ease of navigation with this app. Everything is easy to find and to watch. I also love the shows on here. I don’t mind the amount of commercials, but what I don’t get is WHY ARE THE COMMERCIALS SO LOUD?!?!
Fix this issue and I’d probably give it a better rating.
Tired of this.... 1/5
I'm giving this app a one star rating because I am so sick and tired of always having to re-authenticate this app on my AppleTV just because I haven't watched the app in over a week. Completely ridiculous and total BS!
I should be able to authenticate my device ONE TIME and it should work!
To many commercials 3/5
Love the app to watch favorite shows on the road but a 45 min shout shouldn’t take a 1.5 hrs to watch to many commercials specially when they repeat the same one over and over back to back!
Treasures of history 5/5
By S the curious
Fantastic access to The Curse of Oakland and new series on search for gold. Love the adventure and human interest. History channel shows actually finds artifacts from historical past. Great to witness the adventure.
Dropping cable tomorrow 1/5
Scam to make more money while limiting access to paid customers. Wait a year. Netflix will own them soon
History Channel 5/5
By Melanie Luminosity
The History Channel provides excellent informational documentaries such as Hunting Hitler. There is always some new show or series that offers entertainment without all of the gore prevalent in the offerings of regular television stations. The History channel allows me to view episodes of my favorite shows on my schedule. Everyone should have this channel among its favorites.
Ancient Aliens and other series 4/5
I really enjoy the combination of archeology and theories related to previous visitation by extraterrestrials.
Capturing the Minds of Our Younger Generation 5/5
Capturing history and preserving it for the next generations is what it is all about. If only I had such a TV series like this when I was a young boy I believe I would be standing next to Rick and Marty. My admiration of such conviction is what drives my anticipation for the next episode. I wish our younger generation would have an educational system which would instill such a drive and determination. This series is a credit to the success of the History channel. Trying to solve mysteries and uncovering artifacts is what dreams are all about. Without dreams and aspirations man does not move forward. Keep the struggle for mankind moving forward through the Oak Island and other Templar related series. Keep the legends and intrigue burning dreams into our minds. I am looking forward to winning the sweepstakes!
7 Spectrum Cable TV Commercials in a row 1/5
By Anyconnect user
Why do I have to watch so many spectrum tv commercials???? I have read other reviews of this app and there is the same concern voiced over and over. Stop with all of the constant commercials!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 minutes later????
Another freaking 7 Spectrum Cable TV Commercials!!!
History doesn’t listen to complaints. They don’t care. They think that steaming TV isn’t something that people actually do. This is why they have a Cable TV vendor underwriting their “venture”. Guess what??? I don’t watch the crap that comes out of the cable box. You don’t need spectrum to underwrite you!!!
I will pay you $10 a month to get rid of there stupid commercials!!!! I am sure others will too. Check out CBS. They did it!
Too many commercials. 3/5
It’s a good app if u like commercials. I can’t get thru 1 episode of pawn stars. They bury u in commercials.
Not working 1/5
I am signed in, but cannot view anything. All I get are red spots going in and out and no program comes on for me.
No live stream option and to many commercials! 2/5
No live stream option and to many commercials!
Love all the shows, especially Oak Island
The History Cannel 5/5
The Vikings is one of my favorite shows.
I liked tHe show about Nike-names like phrases.
Hunting Hitler 5/5
I always thought he died in the bunker...this is one of my favorite shows to watch right now.
Great app! 5/5
All the history comes alive with this app. All the shows are in this app with very little commercial interruption. I like how history channel releases shows quickly to their app. I highly recommend this app.
Oops you missed 5/5
I have a real problem I can not watch the rest of Oak Island due to I was shut down I am hooked up to the internet and now it wants ID# and pass codes:.... and I’m in someone’s home I was displaced due to Harvey!$
Don't download unless you like ads every 5 minutes. 1/5
The amount of ads are atrocious. Every 5-10 minutes it plays probably 3 minutes of the same advertisements over and over again.
I'd be willing to pay $5 or something to remove them permanently!
Will be uninstalling until it's fixed.
Directvnow authentication doesn't work 1/5
Would be great if it would work with directvnow given that it advertises that it does. It doesn't work - always get a timeout error on Apple TV. Says the bug has been logged though now months later it's still not fixed.
Outstanding programming 5/5
Great historical programing complete with great analysis and verifiable data.
Freezes often 1/5
By G+ balls
Always crashing at commercials. Have to close the app and re-open after commercial breaks.
Great Shows 5/5
The History channel has some of the best shows on TV. A must have app!
Best app ever 5/5
By Dilbert has fun
Works flawlessly for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching various programs. Keep up the good work.
Could be better but works 3/5
Should take a look at Velocity go app. Much easier to use.
The app is finally working again.
Great History / Terrible Commercials 2/5
The commercials are an absolute joke to get through during superb history shows like The Curse of Oak Island, Hunting Hitler, etc. Also, the excessively high up-volume on the commercials makes this app a last resort for me. I'd almost rather find bootlegged episodes on YouTube.
History Channel App has to do something fast....
By Ladyday Sweet777
AN EYE OPENER.
Finding Hitler 2/5
After watching this series, I think you have uncovered facts that need to be investigated... but I also think you over sensationalize I also think that you plant stuff to make it appear more interesting than it is... like the shovel found...so anti climatic like so many other theories presented only to discover they are ALL dead ends.... your viewers are not as dumb as you think...intelligent people like me get bored watching partially fake news reports and goose chases, one thing you love.
Locks out if u don’t have a tv provider 1/5
Downloaded the app and everything is lock can’t watch anything
Hunting Hitler 5/5
Great show, enjoy it like many others - Oak Island, Knightfall. I hope you continue with Buried show about Templars
Commercials are worse . 2/5
I started streaming to catch up on my shows on the way to works. I didn’t do this to catch up on commercials .
Very good app. If you like the History Chanel then this app is for you. The commercials are not too long and I've never had issues with the play back. So enjoy.
History is his “NAME”
Great for traveling 4/5
Works great for me, I Love the History Channel, this lets me catch up on shows when I am traveling, don’t really care for all of the commercials though, you would think that for all the money we spend for TV service that the app could be commercial free.
Good, but..... 3/5
To many commercials. Would be nice to have a 10 - 30 sec rewind/forward function.
Love the app hate the commercial 4/5
I love that I can watch my favorite shows while I work out on my treadmill, but HATE the ridiculous and all too frequent commercials! Please give me a way to opt out.
Must see TV 5/5
Many of the shows on History are a must see. There are many things that can be learned and more importantly they create excitement and desire to learn more about the history of this amazing world.
Having technical issues with this app again 1/5
After watching the multiple shows about the Templars I recalled another History channel show about Templars and a pirate connection. I used the app to locate the show and I am now experiencing technical issues. The app worked well up to the second set of commercials in the first episode. Then the app crashed and ended in a loop of showing me two commercials then crashing. I decided to login with my TV provider in an attempt to resolve. It is still stuck in the same commercial loop then crashes. I deleted the app and down loaded it again. I started watching the same episode from the start again and this time it entered the same commercial loop at the first commercial break.
No Auto-Play for Chromecast?? 3/5
The new Auto-Play feature is great BUT it only works if you’re watching in the app on your phone. Why not make it available when casting to your TV too??
Also, it would be great if Live TV was finally added as other competitor channel apps have been doing for a long time already!!
App runs fine 1/5
There isn't anything wrong with the app but the shows on the "history" channel are unbelievably trashy. How is that garbage "history"??
Why all the ads? 1/5
Was just watching shows on this app a week and a half ago and there were no ads. Now there are? What the hell happened? What a bunch of b.s.
Great app 5/5
As streaming apps go, there’s is very solid.
Great content...horrible app! 1/5
I love the content available on the History Channel, but you would think they could create an app that worked! This app freezes and shuts down multiple times during an episode which causes you to have to restart the app and go all the way through the process of finding and selecting the show you were watching. This is much too cumbersome and annoying to really enjoy the content. Can we please fix these issues since apparently this has been a problem for quite some time according to the reviews.
Unlocking episodes does not work any more. 3/5
By Ramona Denton
I was delighted to see all the episodes unlocked when I signed into my provider through the History Channel. But now, even though I am logged in, and the app says episodes are unlocked, I am still getting unauthorized user errors, and cannot continue watching content. Very frustrating.
Better than school! 5/5
I have learned more here than most academic classes!!
