Stopped working 2/5
I used to love this app but recently every time I try to watch The Challenge the video plays for a little bit then it freezes. After the video freezes it says video not ready. I have been trying to finish one episode for three days now. Please fix it.
By the way I have closed the app, reopened it, deleted the app, reinstalled it and same issue.
Can’t get through a whole episode of a tv show without having to reset the app a million times during the commercials. The commercial gets “stuck” and it does it over and over and over and over and over… and over. So frustrating.
Fix your app it’s 2023! 1/5
In this day in age, why is this app bugging out every time I try to watch an episode. Why do I have to rewatch 5 minutes of commercials just for the episode to get stuck on a loop.
You like ads? You got ‘em 2/5
ARE YOU EVEN KIDDING WITH THE 5 MIN OF ADS LITERALLY EVERY 6 MINUTES?
Love it! 5/5
Is can be a little annoying when the show just came off of commercial and then it goes back on but I’m not mad about commercials because I mean it’s TV. I would like if there was like a comment sections?! So viewers can communicate? Overall a really good app!
RIP MTV 1/5
Waaaaaaaay too many ads! Total time of ads is equal to or MORE than the show’s actual content — Especially when you factor in Viacom/MTV’s ridiculous editing style. “Let’s recap before and after EVERY SINGLE commercial break.” In reality, these shows have like 5mins of actual content 😂🤣 The good days of MTV are long gone. Too bad. They need to hire fresh minds and try investing in original content. Plenty of film school grads who would love to turn this company around— myself included! Taylor Sheridan and Paramount+ are a great example. You have the blueprint…. So do that with MTV.
This is app is horrible. It buffers, it kicks you out, it turns black in the middle of the show. You can’t pause, rewind or fast forward any shows. We have been streaming for how many years now? If you’re going to own these shows, you need to upgrade your app. Shame on you, MTV.
Watched a single episode of a show no problem for free and then when I went back to watch more, it made me sign into a different app/service that’s paid for to watch more. Misleading and NOT free! So disappointing! Would give zero starts.
Too many ads and crashes 2/5
I love some of the shows from MTV, The Challenge especially. But this app crashes almost every time I use it then forces you to watch ads before selecting where you’re at in the show, then a few more ads once you choose, then even more ads 3 minutes later. It’s incredibly frustrating
Broken on iPad 2/5
The app goes back and forth between portrait and landscape orientation on my iPad it’s so infuriating to try and use. Come on guys, you gotta fix this very BASIC bug.
More ads than show due to app crashing 1/5
The app crashes constantly after watching several ads, making you restart all 8 (8!!!!!) of the ads. Spent more time restarting the app and watching ads than the actual episode. Couldn’t even finish the episode because every ad break turned into a 15 minute saga! Unacceptable behavior from any application, no matter how big or small.
Any positive reviews on this app have to be fake. The amount of ads is ridiculous and makes it impossible to watch shows. God forbid you have to pause or rewind or fast forward you have to watch 7 ads all over again!!!!
The worst! 1/5
The absolute worst streaming app of all time! Too many ads, freezes up all the time and will take you to the beginning of the show you’re watching after it glitches out. Terrible!!
So many issues 1/5
I would be watching an episode and once the ads stopped it wouldn’t play the rest of the episode. Then I would restart the app just have to watch the ads all over again because it didn’t pick up where I left off. Had to just go on my computer instead because the app doesn’t work at all.
Garbage app 1/5
By Jinfash Akbar
I downloaded to watch RPDR and it kept crashing constantly. On the phone and while AirPlaying. Garbage, garbage, garbage. I wish the show stayed off of MTV.
Requiring a Provider is stupid 1/5
I don’t have cable. I just want to buy the show I want to buy. This provider nonsense is losing you customers.
Obviously I’m still going to the watch the show but now I’m buying it from Apple TV instead of from you so enjoy your dividens when you could have had the full profit.
Impossible to watch with the amount of ads! 1/5
How can this even be real?!?! It’s virtually impossible to watch anything with this amount of ads. Deleting this garbage!
Doesn’t work on iPad Pro anymore 1/5
Just spins with the logo forever. Even before, when it kinda worked, it sucked. Crashed constantly and you have to start from the beginning. Awful awful app
Keeps logging out 2/5
Please explain what improvements are being made with the updates. The app keeps logging me out of my service provider and doesn’t remember where I left off, especially if you have already watched the ads previously.
Also, it would be great if you could link paramount plus account to unlock episodes since it’s being advertised.
Love the challenge, would love to see the older seasons included that are not included on paramount plus.
Great review 5/5
By Gorbett 12345678
Awful app don’t use it or waste your time. 1/5
Doesn’t work, way to many ads, I mean like every 3 mins a ad pops up so makes it to where watching a show is impossible and makes it hard to pay attention because you can’t connect with anything or anyone due to the ads popping up. Just seems like they are doing it to just make money but don’t care about the people who use it or don’t pay for the cable version. Deleted and won’t ever use again
iPad version locked in Portrait + broken Support link 2/5
3 immediate technical issues:
1. iPad app is locked in portrait mode… for a VIDEO app??
2. Cannot report an issue through Apple’s usual channels, sends to Developer site, but…
3. Developer/Support link is broken. (throws “Access Denied” error message.)
Buggy and Ad Ridden 1/5
Buggy and has way too many ads
Worst App 1/5
Worst App ever. It constantly crashes and doesn’t pick up where you left off. Avoid this app at all cost. If I could give it 0 stars I would.
Needs an update 2/5
The audio does not match up with people talking on the actual content but THE ADS stream perfectly psh go figure. A lot of ads but my main issue is with the lagging of the content on all devices I have this issue.
Too many ADS 👎🏻 1/5
Not Good too many ads that’s crazy
Error 2200 and ads 1/5
Not only do the ads keep us from watching but we literally had error 2200 pop up 20 times trying to watch The Challenge.. not worth it
Have to log in every single time 1/5
Everytime I use the app, on my phone, and on my TV, it makes me go to mtv.com/activate and get a new code, go to my directv account, & log in again every single time I want to watch something. I can understand requiring a log in again, every once in a while, but multiple times per day is ridiculous. Any other streaming service such as Netflix or Hulu keeps me logged in for many months at a time.
Fix your app 2/5
Ads constantly freeze and get stuck on a 1 second loop, causing me to have to close the app. Upon opening the app again, the episode picks up way behind and if fast forward to where I was, ads again that freeze and loop.
Happens on 3 different high end tvs, iPhone 13, iphone 14, Samsung note 20 ultra. I have no idea how a company so big can put something out like this. Maybe Elon should buy you too and mop the floor with underperforming devs.
More ads than the show 1/5
The amount of ads is ridiculous, it’s almost as much as the actual show. When watching the challenges it’s 20 minutes of ad to 40 minutes of show! My recommendation is paramount+! Yes, you pay 9.99$ for ad free but it’s worth it for when watching old episodes. Live TV for new episodes would have the ads.
This app is really in bad quality. Every time I try to watch something there is a problem. It doesn’t connect to my chrome cast for no reason at all.
Will not cast 2/5
There always seems to be some type of issue with this app. Worked okay for a while but now will not cast to TV.
Worst streaming app 1/5
I don’t what happened to this app but it’s almost unusable. The chromcast doesn’t work and trying to air play it to a tv causes it to freeze at every commercial which there’s about 20 breaks per every episode of a show. Even the app on a console or roku is just as bad. Hopefully things can be fixed soon
Bad experience 1/5
The app kept cutting out the volume on what I was watching and it cut off multiple times forcing me to exit the app and restart the app.
There’s a set of ads every couple of minutes 1/5
Way way way way too many ads. The content isn’t worth it.
Not working 1/5
App won’t let me cast using google chrome cast , all I get is a black picture
Hate it 1/5
First, it’s almost impossible to leave the app once I’m in it on my TV. And second, I understand they have ads to make money…but I watched 2 minutes of my TV show before I was shown SIX ads. There were a total of 8 commercial breaks and in each one there were 5-7 commercials. Not even worth it to watch.
Can’t even get through an episode 1/5
I’ve tried across three different devices and I can’t even get through an episode without it freezing on an image, glitching or going to a black screen. Not even worth it.
Chromecast stopped working 2 updates ago! 1/5
PLEASE FIX! This happened a couple years ago where chromecast got broken via app update…then was fixed after a while… and then now is broken again! Super annoying since this is a basic (but common) feature!
This app is terrible! The shows I want to watch always comes back with the error message of not being available, or cutting out within 5 mins of watching
Constant issues 2/5
I keep trying to give this app another chance. I delete it and then download it a few months after. Each time I hope it is better and never is. It constantly has playback issues. Sound going in and out. Video cutting to black. Crashing and not working after crashing. This is the worst app to watch my shows on. Do better mtv.
Horrible App 1/5
By Moms tag
Can’t watch anything on this app. Freezes up, sound doesn’t match video, crashes every few seconds. I pay for mtv thru dish network & still can’t use the app. I try to use it on iPad & on Firestick with the same problems. From the looks of the reviews, this is a huge issue & customer support is doing nothing to correct the problem. Apps are the wave of the future & MTV fails to deliver a usable app for its customers. Maybe this is why MTV viewer ratings are so bad. I try to watch the Teen Mom shows & CMT crossroads but can’t watch the episodes due to all the problems.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Just the worst — no sound, episodes stop playing halfway through and that’s when the episodes even make it onto the app.
Horrible to Watch 1/5
There are two large boxes/icons to pick if you want MTV or MTV2. Sadly, there is no way to make them go away. Same with the menu icons. So you either leave them on the screen and miss portions of what you are watching, or you don’t watch. TERRIBLE design - did anyone actually test it?
There’s legit 5 long ads every single time you pause, fast forward, or rewind the show you’re watching it makes it not even worth it
Would not load a single episode when trying to watch the only show that isn’t on Paramount+. Not even wasting my time anymore
Error during ads 1/5
The app gets stuck during the 6/7 add after exiting out and replaying the video it replays all the ads just to get stuck on the same one. It has done this on every video I have played so far.
Doesn’t cast 4/5
Ever since I updated the app it wont cast to my tv anymore with my chrome cast
Airplay to TV Option Isn’t Working 3/5
Hello, I have been experiencing issues with my MTV app since last week when trying to watch Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. I was able to watch the first episode with Airplay to my VIZIO tv with no issues, but for some reason I am unable to watch episodes 2-3 on Airplay. There’s a message that pops up and says “Service Unavailable”. I’m able to watch shows on my iPhone but it won’t let me Airplay shows to my tv, which is weird. I have never experienced this issue before. I’m not sure what’s going on.
