Doesn’t work 1/5
If you have Spectrum this app won’t work. Don’t bother installing, it just says you have to sign in but it won’t connect you to the place to sign in. Worthless
Doesn’t have my tv provider? 1/5
So we have Dish and I watch TLC on dish but this app doesn’t let me log in with dish. Stupid pointless app.
All the commercials are annoying 1/5
By Big Nono after update
Y’all need a 15 second rewind and fast forward. It’s so frustrating if you need to see something again and can’t go back just A few seconds- and The commercial checkpoints on the timeline don’t stay true.
Literal trash 1/5
Trying to watch anything on TLC Go or the website is a joke. Sound is off, app keeps crashing, webpage keeps reloading, tons of ads. Seriously a waste of time to try to watch anything. Put some money into good software engineers, TLC!

You need to get on Sling or have it that we can pay 2.99-5.99 and have subscription to TLC and Discovery. Not everyone does cable anymore.
I stopped watching TLC when Trading Spaces went off the air because I found their content to be largely exploitative, bordering on offensive. I was so excited to hear that Trading Spaces was coming back so thought I would watch some old episodes. The app doesn’t allow me to “throw” it to my Apple t.v. And the web version is full of glitches, running the same ads 3-5 times in a row in an endless loop. And TLC is not making old episodes available on demand through my cable provider. This is a huge missed opportunity for TLC to bring back people like myself and new viewers who do not want to watch the odd social mores of the hyper religious or the medical issues of the morbidly obese. Epic fail. I wish Trading Spaces had signed with Netflix or Hulu.
So, first of all when I watch one show the next day it doesn’t start of where I left off. And one day my tv subscription works then the next day it asks me to sign in when before it automatically signed in for me then the next day after I delete then re download it does the same thing. This app is terrible.
Good but so many bugs 3/5
It has almost every TLC show but it is an annoying app.
-I don’t like having to sign in every time I open the app.
-If I pause the show the app messes up.
-For almost 2 minutes straight the same annoying add will play over and over.
-Sometimes when I’ve already watched 95% of the ads, and and I exit and come back, it’ll make me watch all the ads all over again and it makes me cringe.
Fair Warning!! 1/5
By 😜CRAY CRAY
I have had this app for a couple of weeks and I went on it to watch a show, it was locked. I have unlocked the show with my cable info before but I keep clicking the key to unlock it and it is not working. I have already deleted the app and downloaded it again, and restarted my device and it’s still not working. Not only that but the ads are ridiculously long and too often. You cannot pause shows and start them in the same place and it doesn’t save how far into the show you are. Only download this app if you have a lot of patience!!!!
It’s so great to be able to watch this anytime I can!
I honestly feel like I’m watching more commercials than the actual show. It’s highly annoying and most of the time I just end up turning it off.
Awful app not worth your download. 1/5
This is not a user friendly app. It is hard to navigate, doesn’t keep favorites, or hold in the middle of a show if you have to come back to it, and finally whoever has control over the commercials are a joke. I’ve had the same commercial play over and over 10 times, no exaggeration for one commercial break. The breaks within The episodes are a joke all around.
Multiple times I’ve had problems with these things and I’ve only had this app for about a week.
Once I finally get through the show I’m trying to catch up on I’m deleting this app immediately, as this is the only way I can catch up with a show I really like to watch.
Get it together if you’re trying to make an app that is user friendly.
Are you serious 1/5
When I open the app and press on the shelf it asked me allow TLC to access your TV provider I clicked yes and then it took me to a page with a list of TV providers and I typed Verizon FiOS and they said it wasn’t there how do you not have Verizon FiOS as one your TV providers. One Verizon FiOS is one of the main TV providers and two asked me for my TV provider. Horrible
My Favorite Shows 5/5
I really like this app bc I love the shows on TLC. It would be great if there were a version in all apps that would allow me to watch it commercial free.
Seems like every now and again it tells me TLC is not with my Directv package..yes it is.. i watched TLCgo all weekend and now all episodes are locked and can not watch... this is not the first time either.. get it together!
Doesn’t Save Progress 2/5
Despite checking the “Remember me” option when I log in with my cable provider, it never does. When I close the app, and reopen it later, I have to log in all over again. The “continue watching” option doesn’t work either. If the app closes or crashes (which happens frequently), I lose my progress in the episode and have to start all over. If I try to drag the dot through to the point I left off at, I have to sit through yet another ridiculously long commercial break, despite having just gone through one when the episode started. The commercial breaks in this app are much longer than on television, and they are extremely repetitive. Sometimes you can have a five minute commercial break with the same commercial on what seems like a continuous loop. I can recite a lot of the commercials verbatim because they come up so many times. The commercial breaks don’t occur at what you would consider a “normal” part of the episode. Someone can be talking, and all of a sudden, their conversation is abruptly interrupted, and it doesn’t always resume in a spot that makes sense. TLC advertises that you can stream whole seasons, and sometimes even an entire series of certain shows, but some shows aren’t available, and a lot of episodes are locked. I starred a few of my favorite shows hoping that I could easily see the newest episodes in the ”Favorite Shows” tab, but those don’t save either. It’s nice being able to watch episodes you missed, but this app is incredibly frustrating to use, and isn’t at all what the developer promises.
Won’t let me sign in!! 1/5
I was going to give this a higher start rating until I found out that I’m not able to sign in to my charter account to watch shows that are locked. Please fix and I’ll change the rating.
I only watch a couple of shows, but what annoys me the most isn't the long boring commercials. I hate that I have to sign in EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the app. Like really? Other apps I don't sign in after a couple of weeks not every single time. They should fix that.
REWIND BUTTON??? 3/5
I have a suggestion..... Can developers please add a rewind button feature (to skip back 15 or 30 seconds) like all other channels apps have? Thank you!!
False advertising 1/5
They advertise “watch free with your tv subscription”. Well, even with a tv subscription, they wouldn’t allow me to watch. Apparently, even though a well known company, my tv subscription isn’t on their “list”. Guess I’m going to have to stop watching TLC. It’s a virtual world, and if you don’t allow viewers to watch on their devices, you’re making it a lot harder to keep viewers for your shows.
Is 90 day fiancé on this?
App won't load most of the time 2/5
I have several shows that I enjoy watching. The website on my computer works, nut this app is crap. More than half the time it doesn't get past the load screen. I am just glad it is free.
Endless ads 1/5
Horrible app, contains glitches.
Ads play every 10 minutes. The worse part is the same two ads loop for 5-6 minutes, until you think they are stuck and give up watching the show.
When you try to pause, the show locks up and resets to the beginning. To skip to the point in the show where you left off, means you have to watch all the commercial sets in between the beginning and the point where you paused. It can take 20 minutes to find your place again.
Funk catching up 5/5
I love this app for catching up on my favorite TLC shows. You must have a cable service account to view most episodes.
Commercial catastrophe 1/5
I love TLC programming and was very excited to try this app. I was incredibly disappointed to find out though that there are seemingly more commercials than actual programming! Not only are there an insane amount of commercials, they are often the same ones repeated on end. Often the app freezes and you are forced to watch all of them again just to get back to where you were in your show. I just can’t handle it. I’ll have to go back to recording the programs and fast forwarding the ads. If it were one or two per break I could understand, but there are five to seven every ten minutes! I understand you are trying to make money from ad space TLC, but as you can see from these reviews, your viewers are not happy, and many are turning away such as I have.
Won’t let me sign in today to watch my episodes... update this app or something.
All these horrible reviews you’d think these people would fix this crap.
NEEDS IMPROVEMENT 1/5
The ads are terrible. They play over and over. The app itself is glitchy. Sometimes after suffering through the ads the episode will replay from the begging 🙁
This app is wonderful. But after every 5 minuets there is the same 3 commercials over and over and over again. I am watching more commercials than I am the show. It is actually quite rediculas. I am seriously going to delete the app if I see one more Toyota commercial.
The ads need to stop! 1/5
By Mike Scott 2345670
I understand that they need ads to make money but these are just ridiculous! Way to many for way to long. And it's the same 3 ads being played over and over again. And I can't even watch new shows with cable because the channel doesn't even work
Has one HUGE issue!!! 2/5
By shamya orders
My BIGGEST issue with this app is that it logs out of my cable provider and when I log back in, it doesn’t remember any of my favorite shows or any of the shows I stopped in the middle of. So every time it does it to me I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN (😡🤬😤). It is literally the most annoying thing and makes me less interested in the shows I was watching. So I would NOT recommend this app to others.
Where is Verizon in your Provider List?? 1/5
Verizon Fios is a HUGE cable provider here in NJ and it’s very surprising that they are not available as a provider on your list. I can not unlock any episodes without it.
Great if your provider is supported ... 1/5
I’m sure the app is terrific if your provider is supported. I don’t understand how TLCGo won’t support Verizon customers who pay to subscribe to the service. Ridiculous!
Why do they add more ad time the more u use the app?! Rather just record on tv and skip through!
Why can’t I sign in with my DishNetwork account? 1/5
By get ur crap together TLC
How is it I have my cable service through one of the most well known providers DishNetwork and TLC doesn’t have Dish on their app. They have a bunch of companies which I’ve never ever heard about 60-80% of them.
Beaver Creek Co
Here are just a few. My point is TLC is jst about the only channel I watch. I am a very busy mother/wife/caregiver and more so when I heard yalls commercials about “watch anywhere anytime” just download the TLC go app and take it with you. I was so excited about this app on the go.. thought I’d be able to catch up on my favorites in between patients, car pooling kids to school and the late nights. Well I was wrong! Please fix the problem! Thanks. Why wouldn’t TLC have DishNetwork in the options to sign into your provider??? Makes absolutely no sense.
Only reason y’all got a star is because you made me check one to submit me review.
Too many commercials! 3/5
By The Couture Box
It’s a great app but it has way to many commercials! I’d rather watch the shows on tv because it has less commercials! It’s annoying.
No directv now support 1/5
No directv now support in the cable providers.
App has gone to the dogs!!! 1/5
Everything has a red key beside it and won’t unlock even when I am logged into my carrier (direct tv). When it does work you have to deal with so many commercials. I have sent two responses about the issues and I haven’t gotten an email yet.
I try to watch shows while I’m at the gym. This app makes it impossible and infuriating. I can’t skip commercials while doing cardio and the program often restarts if I have to pause throughout the episode, causing me to have to rewatch commercials. Don’t waste your time.
Are the ads a cruel joke? 1/5
I wonder if the developers read these reviews and laugh at the agony we go through with the ads. I don’t blame them, I probably would laugh reading the complaints if I made an app with ads this terrible but there was nothing that could be done about it because it pays the bills. The TLCGo app plays the same ad over and over again, sometimes up to 7 times in a row. Not only that, they will show the same ad up to that many times, at multiple points as you are watching. A standard episode in a show will have at least 5 of those ridiculously long and repetitive commercial breaks. I have seen the commercial with the “guy who is always messing up his Apple phone while his girlfriend enjoys an easygoing, futuristic life with her Samsung devices” ad at least 500 times by now. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
It could use some work 3/5
You need to have a better variety of ads or offer ad free. I hate seeing the same ads over and over, sometimes the same one 3 times in a row.
Only shows a couple of episodes and the rest are locked. I no longer have cable. What shows I can watch are riddled with commercials.
This app is trash. All the shows I watch are an hour long so I can never finish them in one sitting, but if I pause them and try and pick up in the same spot it NEVER works. So then I have to sit through 30 minutes of back to back commercials before I can finish the last 20 minutes of my show. Ridiculous.
I love TLC. I love this app. But the commercials tho! During the latest 600lb Life episode, I have sat through two and a half minutes of the exact same commercial (which is 30 seconds long) about four different times. That means I have watched the same commercial TWENTY TIMES!! Roll back some of these commercials please!
Tlc is a pain 2/5
Everything I try to watch a show it constantly log me out and never track what I was watching. Never saves shows you save as favorites.The commercials need to be switched up I’m not buying Jordan’s icy hot or a new pickup truck 5150 bullspit stuff.
The only positive thing it does have a lot of tlc shows.
Good shows but the same ads 5 times in a row??!! Come on!! 3/5
Don't mind the ads, but 5-7 at a time and 5 Maybelline in a row is ridiculus!!!
Please check the ads 1/5
Please for the love of God don't make me watch the same commercial 8 times in one commercial break. You literally are having the opposite effect. I will literally never buy @Maybelline metallic eyeliner. Please fix this! You are doing a disservice to the companies that are paying you to advertise on your app! FIX IT!
Works amazing now I can watch my shows on the go
By Annoyed person1997
Too many commercials that are like 4 minutes long. Commercials seem much longer as well as more frequent than they do on tv. If the could shorten the length of the commercials to about 2 minutes it would improve this app tremendously.
Locked episodes 1/5
What’s the sense of having this app if all the episodes are locked. How is it that Verizon fios isn’t one of the cable providers? Get it together!!!
Love ❤️ 5/5
