SYFY app reviews

  • Review 4/5

    By Argiegator
    Have some great programs just too many commercials
  • Love face off 5/5

    By xander 007
    Works great on my iPad I just wish it worked as good on my fire stick I love face off and the resident alien
  • Not good 1/5

    By Jeremy's Dana
    How can I like something if I can’t watch anything!??
  • The magicians 3/5

    By Zakk1122334
    Stopped subscribing after they cancelled the magicians. I feel this was the first good sci fi series they had to offer in a long time I was looking forward to more displays of similar writing but was mistaken. Maybe next time
  • Cut me off in the middle of an episode. 1/5

    By RebekahHarper
    Was trying to watch Season 6 of NCIS: LA. Why that’s not on the CBS/paramount app is beyond me. But logged in with Spectrum to watch, and mid-episode it cut me off and switched to Season 7. 6 was no longer available. WYF? Seriously why are we paying for all these glitchy services that can’t even give us what we want.
  • Too Many Ads 2/5

    By skmcginnis
    By the time the six ads in a row have run you have forgotten what you are watching, and no longer care.
  • I’ve never seen an app that’s worse at AirPlay 1/5

    By Tulliandar
    if it makes it more than 5 seconds, then it’ll stop after each set of commercials, so you have to re-start, and re-watch commercials
  • Good shows. Crummy tech 2/5

    By rghare
    Does know why this app it’s so bad at streaming? 4 maybe 6 stalls per show. Can’t scrub easily back to where you were. Content is great. Streaming is terrible.
  • Tv 5/5

    By noobboyyyyyyyyyyy69420
    Watch resident alien 👽 it’s the best tv show I ever watched
  • Audio cuts out 2/5

    By Austintatious18
    I have had to restart numerous times while watching Resident Alien because the audio drops around 5 seconds in
  • Pathetic 1/5

    By Mikec9mm
    Cancels all their good shows at once . No line up at all . Had one decent show left till this past week . Ended it . Tried to watch the series finale , couldn’t the stream would skip minutes of video at a time and just keep going when it was not crashing completely . I’m sorry but I have to turn to other networks for my “ SYFY “ experience now .
  • All I wanna do is watch Harry Potter 1/5

    By Conlego
    So when I turn on the first film, it says a playback error. I did not screen record or any of that fiasco. And then the audio is on and then it mutes. Please explain to me why this is happening. Thank you and have a nice day.
  • 30 min show, 10 min commercials 2/5

    By PJ 03stpat87
    Feels like more commercials than regular cable tv... I'd like to watch my show, not have you try and sell things to me... In today's world, no thanks.
  • Unusably glitchy 1/5

    By spencerljohnson
    I managed to get through 2 1/2 episodes before deleting the app. The AirPlay streaming connection keeps crashing. It takes 10 minutes or more to reconnect each time, but the location in the episode would be lost. Trying to scrub through to the right spot is a nightmare. Every time you move the playhead it makes you watch through a bunch of ads. Then it randomly jumps to some other spot. It’s not worth the headache, even for the 3 free episodes. I can’t imagine paying for the subscription.
  • A 1/5

    By Zhmigoul
    It needs a cable subscription in order to watch anything would be nice if you could pay a monthly fee and enjoy all the shows
  • Commercials 1/5

    By noooonye
    I only have this app for 1 show and it is almost unbearable to get interrupted 5 times with 5 ads each time, you need to fix them.
  • Recent episodes “failure” but green check is on the page before faked message. 4/5

    By Windos
    SYFY would be 5 but it has been failing last few days, but I have a green check saying all is ok!v
  • What the hecc is happening 2/5

    By LizZ🤠
    i’m just trying to watch the chucky marathon and whenever i press to go live, no matter how many time i refresh, the audio is set back like 10 seconds. I’ve already tried playing syfy on e!, oxygen and it still doesn’t work. I think y’all are the problem here😁
  • Worst app 1/5

    By Rmlb36
    Okay I dropped my tv provider. So there’s no way to pay to watch anything after your credits are gone. Worthless crap provided by SYFY and NBC. Useless as you apparently don’t want or need my business. May you go bankrupt very soon.
  • BananaMan 1/5

    By BananaMan2004
    This app is trash it’s better to just watch on tv. I’d only download this if u can handle 8-9 ads per episode that are 1minute long each
  • Love free, not as happy with broken feed 4/5

    By coldfog14
    I love the old shows. But it’s funny that I have to reboot my table every second one due to freezing up and choppy feed. But the commercials are pristine.
  • What’s with not allowing ratings 3/5

    By upsetmike
    Why is it only no allows ratings..... you must be afraid your horrid shows will get one stars hu.....
  • Love the shows, hate the app. 3/5

    By Daniel Rapp
    This app is super glitchy! If you play a show through Apple TV the picture won’t maximize. As you’re watching a show the video stops and buffers every 30 seconds or so and I have 5G and WiFi.
  • Can’t connect with TV provider 1/5

    By Scorif
    Been trying to get this app to work for about two weeks now. Can NOT get it to connect to numerous TV providers!
  • Resident ailen 1/5

    By zinginaround
    I LOVE this show - BUT! Because of the numbers and numbers of commercials why oh why would I pay for a subscription for commercials!!?
  • This APP is the WORST!!! 1/5

    By jnl5050
    This app is the worst ever!!! The airplay doesn’t work at all! And, there’s waaaay too many commercials! So many. It also kept losing its place and it even totally cut out. I had to start over a few times. So, frustrating. Good luck!
  • The shows are great, too bad the app is garbage 1/5

    By Matt Landrum
    I’ve had any number of problems using this App with AppleTV. I have Netflix, Prime, Hulu, ESPN, Disney, Paramount+, ... This app has caused me endless frustration. Maybe it’s just me.
  • Ads need to go 1/5

    By fix__it!
    The same 5 ads will some times play 5 times in a row. Often causing the app to lock up. Then you have to close the app. Upon restarting it, you have to watch 5 more ads! Even though you have seen them! This can happen back to back. Over and over. GET RID OF ADS!
  • AppleTV App locks up 1/5

    By Mark in SLC
    And I have to reboot it by pulling power cord. It goes black screen on me and won’t respond to anything.

    By Rachael Rae Ann
    Seriously the worst app I have ever used in my life. It doesn’t play anything right. The ONE show that worked stopped 1/3 way through and will not let me start properly again. Every time I airplay it stops and starts something else for six seconds (maybe), then I have to hit play on my phone again and it stops six seconds later. Other shows it won’t play at all. Sticking to Netflix and CW. At least they play a show the entire way through!!!
  • Garbage 1/5

    By DSmithWriter
    This thing becomes unlinked from my account and forces me to reauthenticate every day! It’s gotten to the point that I’ve uninstalled it. This stupid thing is why people pirate.
  • Cloud Authorization Error? 2/5

    By DookieDookieDown
    Have been watching content fine until this week. Now getting authorization error, have unlinked and linked cable/internet provider account multiple times, have also deleted and reinstalled apps. Its happening on apps thru here and on roku.
  • How to watch 1/5

    By ichi of Japan
    Please tell me how to watch the movies and tv shows?
  • Horrible. Why do I even need it???? 1/5

    By disappointed user1234567
    Keep jumping to the commercial, not really working with AirPlay. Need to restart multiple times. Absolute waste! I’d rather just watch on the computer!
  • To many ads 4/5

    By Ritchard187
    Its a good app but so many godamn ads they need to chill with it
  • Not horrible, but kinda glitchy 3/5

    By CoZmoDan
    I can’t complain too much since it’s free, but the shows keep freezing and glitching And my internet connection is not the problem.
  • Tricking SFYF 1/5

    By Eddiedeanself
    My WiFi signal is 65mb down and 20 up. Only the SYFY is sputtering. Freezes and then starts,but does not pickup where left. Need a lot of work guys. Love the content but not the delivery.
  • Resident Alien 5/5

    By DianeG
    Probably one of the strangest comedies I have ever seen! But the most addictive!
  • Not the worst but nearly 1/5

    By 7658285628
    I use multiple channel apps and this one is not by far the worst one however it is the only one that requires you to link a tv provider. You can only watch a few things before it locks you out. Guess I’m just watching CW.
  • AirPlay Crashes and Glitches Constantly 1/5

    By KauaiSkyGuy
    I downloaded this app in order to watch Resident Alien with Alan Tudyk by streaming the full episodes to my tv from my iPhone via AirPlay!... but it is terrible. I do this same thing with several other apps and they work great, but not this version of the SYFY app. It glitches, can’t scrub forward and backward without starting over, then sometimes drops the episode and jumps to a random commercial, the n freezes and crashes. AirPlay from my Mac on Safari works, thankfully. But this app needs some major work.
  • SYFY app needs work 1/5

    By GrizzlyBeatz
    Constantly freezing and can barely play one episode without issue and outright application failing to load the episode
  • was so excited about this app, but I’m really just disappointed 2/5

    By Pirateninja!
    Half way thru every episode of resident alien during the gambling ad my episode glitches and either puts me into a loop of constant commercials or completely freezes up and won’t allow me to watch anything further. I have to close the app and reopen it 3-4 times to make it allow me to watch. At that point it does not allow me to pick up where I left off, but rather forces me to re watch all the commercials again and repeat the whole process over or skip ahead 15 min and miss a bunch of the program. If that’s not the issue I’m faced with, then I have to deal with the whole episode stopping randomly and telling me I have to restart because of an error. I was so excited about this app, but I’m really just disappointed.
  • Never wants to play 1/5

    By Phydeu
    This app had playback issues none of my other streaming apps have. In the middle of a show it will stop playing. You have to try several time later and sometimes you have to close the app and reopen it. One show the finale won’t play. At all. On any device I have. So not worth it.
  • Can’t watch videos 1/5

    By Black_mage1692
    Keeps saying playback error. Waste of time don’t bother
  • Bad Chanel 1/5

    By calliope inphagenia torres
    The only good show on here is wynonna earp but now that show is canceled how? All these earners have been fighting and hashtag into #fiveforwynonna for way to long but it still gets Canceled for what? Cut another show there’s many horrible ones you can choose from to cut
  • Alien lover 5/5

    By nine millimeter
    Love the new resident alien show
  • Good but many a small change wouldn’t hurt 5/5

    By heremyiscool11
    There are two many ads
  • Will not open = No Stars! 1/5

    By Tallskny
    An app that crashes without fully opening is not an app. Have deleted and reloaded. Why is this still here?!
  • Always Crash’s 1/5

    By trigon10
    Every time I try to load this app it crash’s. I did a uninstall and reinstall and it still crashes. I would like to try it but it simply will not work on my IPad.
