Always an issue 1/5
The only reason why I have this app is because I can’t watch my local news on my tv any other way.
Always a problem. Always glitchy, freezing, and buffering.
The same commercials play constantly.
I’ve listened to a 2 second feed repeat itself 7 times. Not once not twice but 3 times in an hour and a half. It’s also frozen and I had to restart app. This is a daily occurrence. I understand it’s free but come on.
What’s the deal 1/5
By Enterprise 1701
Used to like this app. Had some older shows I liked. But now, ever time you change the station channel you have to set through the same thirty second tennis commercial. Over and over and over and over.......
Screen showing 4/5
I got the app and selected the channel, but nothing is showing right now. Can you fix it?
Sinclair? No way....right wing nuts with a broadcast channel app. Destroying, deleting and taking a long shower. Ugh.
400 live channels 3/5
No search function but popular shows easy to find at bottom. This works on a firestick and happy I ditched cable!
Saw and add on Judge Judy, now no longer there😢.
As if 1/5
Anyone cares about “presidential town halls” anymore. 🙄
Gimme a break. He doesn’t even know where he is half the time.
Like being angry? 1/5
Downloaded this app and you will constantly be angry. App is Garbage. Constantly freezing. Have to close it out and restart it. It seems to only do it when you’re right in the middle of watching something you enjoy. Ive had it for quite awhile now. ...and ive finally had enough. DELETED!
Only ads 2/5
By Medic Intern
I have used this app to get local news channel and the only way I receive local news but now only shows the same ads repetitively over and over with a second of a view into the channels. I don’t have access to news otherwise
No chromecast 3/5
Great app, but pointless without Chromecast capabilities
Why was Search function removed? 3/5
By Windy Foot
I’ve been enjoying this app for a year or so, but changes were made in the last update that are unacceptable. First, the Search function was removed, and secondly, my favorite show is gone. Even when I select the correct on-demand channel, it is not in the list. The list only has about four featured shows instead of all the shows. PLEASE restore these features as they previously were.
Nice app 4/5
By Edward the 3rd
It has a lot of great shows and movies but the only one thing I didn’t like is that there is no search bar. It would be nice if one can search for a show or movie without having to go line for line looking for a show. That’s why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5
Not a stable or reliable. 2/5
By Dissappointed recipient
This app is unstable and unresponsive atleast every other day. I literally have to delete the app and reinstall it in order to get it to work again to the point of almost being more trouble than it is worth.
The apple tv version has a bug that prevents scrolling through the live channels
It’s free 5/5
Is it perfect no, but it’s free. It’s the same as cable, many channels and not much to choose from. Once in a while I will find something to watch. I hate when it says we will be right back and there is nothing on the screen.
Great shows, horrible commercial timing 2/5
Only place to watch classics from the 80’s (Magnum PI, Knight Rider, Chips, Hunter) but the commercials (cheesy) cut in right in the middle of programming instead of at the correct times a show would typically phase out to a commercial. Miss over a minute of the show then have to sit through the ‘Stirr’ moment of ‘we’ll be right back’. Would be great if the network could bring in Love Boat, Simon and Simon, A-Team, Duke of Hazard etc but for heavens sake.. fix the commercials!
Wonky app 2/5
By yv FCC Zac TY tv
Constantly timing out, and when you try to select a station, it will jump to another channel selection.
Some good programming.... 1/5
But the app itself doesn’t work well. Every time you select the “channel” guide you get an advertisement. Then you cannot change the channel. If you exit and start over, you have to watch the same commercial you just watched 10 seconds ago. If you watch the whole commercial, you still can’t change the channel... The App needs lots of work! The “workaround” for this is to stream the show you want to watch... I really wanted to give this app a higher rating, but couldn’t with all the problems....
Good app 5/5
LOVE THIS APP ITS FREEE TVVVVV CMON
Streaming via iPhone lightening connector 1/5
When streaming to your TV via the lightening connector on an iPhone doesn’t keep streaming just locks up over and over and you have to restart way to often. Wish this would get fixed after all this time. Tried the STIRR ap awhile ago and had the same problem.
The app is better loading now but the grid guide is broken. None of the programs are shown on any of the channels.
Works on Apple TV once 1/5
By GoldDog BBD LLC
Must delete and reinstall every time launched
The Oct 2020 update caused the issue
Nothing works but the thumbnails 1/5
I downloaded it to my AppleTV (model A1625 32GB) tvOS 12.4.1 (16M600). It looked good. Chose my city, then perused the channels. Click on the thumbnail and the channel loads. Click on a show and...nothing. Back up to thumbnails and click on another, and...nothing. Every show, every movie, every channel...thumbnails work...and nothing. The only one that does work is the video under "About" How to use STIRR.
Interestingly, COMET, that is within the STIRR app doesn't work either, but by itself downloaded separately, works perfectly fine.
If STIRR actually worked on my AppleTV, I think I'd enjoy it.
Good idea, doesn’t work. 2/5
The app isn’t laid out too bad, but it just doesn’t work. I see the program I want to watch for a second and then the screen goes black. This happens on 75% of the channels. Could be a good app but they need to fix it.
By Skynner McGee
Hundreds of shows promised...
5 shows listed in EVERY city.
I like it 5/5
It’s nice to be able to watch the news where my family members are located.
stirr tv we’ll be back 1/5
By Green River1
how long do you need to wait
Will not play. 1/5
By Gator (Connecticut)
Cannot watch anything on this app because it won’t play anything at all. Doesn’t even work on a laptop PC either.
Stirr incompatibility on Apple TV (oct - 2020) 1/5
By Alex J Nabours
I removed this from all my Apple products. It no longer works on Apple TV.
In my opinion it needs removed from the Apple App Store until it is compatible with all Apple products it claims to be compatible with. It should require no special connections. I’d rather pay for something that actually works than waste my time on “free” stuff that doesn’t work as described or expected.
Right Wing News 1/5
This is Sinclair broadcasting which is a right wing propaganda company for trump.
Free yes 1/5
By Fred I
Yes it is free if you don’t mind watching minute commercials after five minutes then enjoy
Saw the horror channel and said yippie! So far, for 4 min now cuz I got busy, all I get is the Stirr logo with “we’ll be right back” flipping around on my screen. It’s been around for about as long as Pluto so, what’s the problem?
Get what you pay for 1/5
By FAHQ2 slick lips
No real channels, not even local ones. Go for YoutubeTV or AT&T TV.
Not well done 3/5
Whoever programmed this mess must want it to fail.
Update: Got fixed works better now
F*** Sinclair!! 1/5
Your local independent news is a lost relic thanks to Sinclair Broadcast Group. It’s now merely another tentacle of corporate control over our perspective, used to push their agenda through narratives and choosing which stories to push and which to pull. Not only has your world view been carefully curated by the big guys, now your local view has been handed over to the plutocrats. Bow down to your billionaire overlords!!!
Sinclair is a terrible company 1/5
By Grdq Praedo
I saw an ad for this app on tv and it looked kinda cool. NEVER GONNA USE OR SUPPORT A SINCLAIR PRODUCT
Very few channels work 2/5
Nearly all channels down, some on demand content very pixelated, search loading times very inconsistent, most ondemand does not load, guide does not allow for slow scrolling
By A Jetson 33
Free? That should pay me to watch these programs
Owned By Sinclair Broadcast Group 1/5
Read up on Sinclair Broadcast Group before settling on this app. Just sayin’
Not fake news, a fake app 1/5
App promises live local news. It lied. No such thing. Nearest “local” newscast is from Los Angeles, a world away and irrelevant to Bakersfield where Sinclair owns two stations. Its Apple TV app offers a “Latest Newscast” but it’s over 24 hours old. Bloated hype.
Sinclair = Trump Supported FAKE NEWS 1/5

Crash and Freeze 1/5
By Rando a hole
Can’t watch certain channels because of crashing issues.
Fire TV app stopped working 3/5
Just started within the past week or so, Trying to get to the channel guide and now all I get is a full screen ad and the ad freezes and hangs everything up. Can’t get past it to get to any channels. Getting ready to delete this app and reinstall Pluto! I get the need for ads but at least be sure the ads work before you put them out there!
Wonky Apple TV App! 2/5
While I like the content on Stirr, the user interface for the Apple TV app is wonky. Scrolling through the channel guide is slow and tedious. There are gaps that you have to wait to fill before you can continue scrolling! If you are watching a certain channel and hit the Menu button on your remote, it takes you back to the top of the channel guide, so you have to scroll again to find the channel you were previously watching, which is ridiculous! Hence the 2 star rating for this app!
Love the channels but would love to be able to cast to TV. 3/5
Love all the options I can watch but hugely disappointed that I can’t cast any of them to the tv. I would raise the star rating to 5 if they fixed that.
By Flash on
When I connect phone to tv some channels blackout
Impossible to select a specific channel 1/5
Apple TV app makes it impossible to select a channel. The guide doesn’t populate date for many or sometimes any of the channels and if no data you can’t move past that channel in the guide. Very frustrating.
Can’t cast 1/5
Doesn’t work with Chromecast!
