Trailed Many, YouTube TV won 5/5
Better performance than Sling and Vue. Almost seamless with Chromecast. UHTV works well too, given proper bandwidth.
Fast forward through channels 5/5
I would like a page at a time through the channel listing li
Better than sling, but... 3/5
At least you can pause live TV (unlike sling). And the interface is superior to DirectTV Now or Sling. And the channel package is ideal compared to other competitors. But,the big problem is that your recordings can still get replaced by Video on Demand versions based on the station or show. So you can record the Late Show, but CBS doesn’t let you watch the recording. You have to watch the VOD. And the VOD has way more commercials - and no skipping ahead. I’m paying to have the freedom to record and skip around as see fit - so this is a big problem for me. YouTube should dump CBS (and any other provider that won’t let you play recordings). They’re getting paid for the subscription, so they should just deal with the lost ad revenue. You can charge me more up front if you want to, but there is 0% chance I will actually watch a commercial - so stop trying to change my behavior and start focusing on providing a valuable service.
Needs to be on fire stick Amazon app 3/5
The only way I can watch it is on my phone or tablet.
Llike to watch the news on tv.
Good app! 3/5
I wish they had a “recent” tab for DVR as well as being able to only record “new” episodes for your favorite program because as of right now, it’ll record everything “old” & “new”
Other than that, it’s an amazing app that’s on the come up.
Issues with YouTubeTV with Roku 1/5
I signed up for YouTubeTV with my Roku but now I cannot access it. I just got charged again for the monthly fee but cannot access it. How to cancel? If I cannot get signed in why am I still being charged??
Got an email yesterday saying there was a problem with my billing information. Updated my card info and re-bought my subscription and now the app doesn’t work!!!!!! I’ve tried restarting my phone and deleting that app and that didn’t change anything. I don’t have cable so I relied on this app to keep up with shows that Netflix doesn’t have, I am so frustrated right now and just might go buy cable....lol.
Youtube tv 5/5
By Cash Money 13
Fire tv 4/5
I like it so far. Any chance it will ever be available on fire tv?
Really nice 5/5
Great user interface. Super awesome if you have a chrome cast and a google home. I’m still hoping they offer Discovery channels. Absolutely love it!
It would be super sick if you could tell Google Home Assistant which episode of your shows you want to stream.
Love it! 5/5
I love YouTube TV! It works on different platforms without fail. I just switched from being an android user to and iPhone user and the switch was seem less. It also runs great on my kindle fire! The price it right as well!
YouTube TV/ customer service. 2/5
Overall it’s a okay service the problem is not having a actual number to contact the foolish customer service agents they have. Why does YouTube TV lie to customers and charge you after you cancel ? Sounds like fraud to me !!!
Best bang for the buck 5/5
Better than cable. Better than satellite. I get the channels that interest me and I don’t pay through the nose. Where have you been all of my life?
Great service. Don’t change a thing
Stop it 1/5
Why on earth do you keep bugging me to sign up for you tube t.v it’s not available in my area yet,it seems like everyday you overwhelm me with notices. I’ve recently had a nervous breakdown and I think your bringing me closer to having another.youve just thrown me into a panic attack! I think I might have to speak to my attorney,after I get out of the nervous hospital.
Great live tv streaming 5/5
I do wish there was a TV guide feature. I have been streaming us tv now for a long time, they have a real good TV guide feature. This YouTube tv is very easy to use.
Closed Captioning Problem 1/5
When using the Digital AV Adapter by Apple to display media on an HDMI device, the Closed Captioning appears on the iPhone instead of the HDMI device. Other apps (e.g. ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Now, NBC, SlingTV, SNL, TubiTV, YouTube [yes, their own non-TV app]) get this right, but YouTube TV’s support team says it is Apple’s issue. (They totally blew me off when I brought to their attention!) For someone that needs Closed Captioning, this is a show stopper.
UPDATE: A second support member on “The YouTube TV Team” has contacted me that the Apple AV Adapter is not supported. The captions are there, just on the wrong screen and ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Now, NBC, SlingTV, SNL and TubiTV all display the captions correctly on the correct device.
What happened to Chromecasting? 3/5
By Slash 251
Before the update, I was able to chromecast from my iPhone to my HDTV easily, reliably. Now, the little symbol does not appear at all on my iPhone and I cannot cast to my television. This is a not good. Whatever improvements or bugs you fixed, you sure messed up with this bigly.
Not worth it 1/5
Paid the first month and was not reliable when I needed it (watch World Cup games). YTTv Never again!
Still unsure.... 3/5
By TX/NC Girl
Freezes in the middle of a show AND my biggest problem is that I can’t watch this on my Amazon Fire!!
I am a happy viewer! 5/5
I am so happy to have YouTube TV because otherwise there isn’t much to watch in my area. It’s great to have a selection of quality shows to see with the ability to watch them from the onset.
prices !!! 1/5
i do not think that youtube should be charging extra just to use a simple app. THAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED !!
Commercials in replays??? 4/5
Very happy overall with app. What I don’t like is that there are commercials that you can’t fast forward through on dvr recordings. THATS ONE REASON TO DVR THEM! I end up going to Hulu to watch them instead. I also get frustrated that the fox sports Tennessee channel regularly says that St. Louis Cardinals games are on when they aren’t. That’s a guide problem.
How is this free. It started with searching for local channels and then showed me the approximate billing would be 39.99. What??? Then next page was an option to add HBO and stars and what not for additional cost. No thanks
Yesssss!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 5/5
YouTube Tv is so convenient
I Have Tried Them All 5/5
I have tried all the substitutes for cable over the last 3 years. None compare to YouTube TV. Almost never crashes and easy to use. Great selection of channels.
Split view doesn’t work 3/5
Says split view is supported, but I can’t get that to work. No settings, no hand gestures. Uh oh...
Needs to allow me to stream while using phone 3/5
It’s an easy to use app. Only problem is the app won’t stream to my Apple TV if my phone is not on and in the app itself. If I press the power button or try and go to another app the game will stop streaming on my Apple TV
I haven’t paid for tv in 2 years and this app caused me to change my mind and pay for cable again. Even with the showtime and starz added, it’s still cheaper than cable ever was. It gets 4 stars because MTV and HBO aren’t on here yet. When is that happening?
Platform restrictions 3/5
By new custimer314
The service is fantastic (channels, etc.), but we are still baffled with all the red tape surrounding the availability of the app on various platforms. Sorry, we don’t want to get chromecast and stream through our phones, and our new smart tv doesn’t have the app.
No PIP :-/ 1/5
Every video app I use supports PIP, but YouTube wants you to pay for it. :-/ no thanks.
Option menu keeps popping up 1/5
While watching videos the option menu keeping popping up multiple times. I am not touching the screen. It is very annoying. This newest update seems to have brought it on. Please fix.
Love my YouTube TV! 5/5
Works great! Love all the local & sports channels. The recording lets me watch my favorite shows when convenient for my schedule. Also, the price is great!
"Samsung 2016+" definition???? 2/5
By John Clarida
I'm very disappointed to learn that You Tube TV defines "2016+" for Samsung TV's as only 2016 and 2017 models, NOT including 2018. Yes, I have some responsibility for not investigating more rigorously, but you are GOOGLE, not "Bob's TV company". Why deliberately mislead?
Pay monthly for Ads!!! 3/5
Great service and consistent service but you want me to pay a monthly fee to watch ads for on demand content!!! I don’t think so. When ads stop, I will give more stars...Needs more channels too. A little surprised by the shortage of channels
Smart Person 1/5
By Very art person
Ugh! The most frustrating app ever. After 90 minutes of trying, I gave up and cancelled, and the support person was NO help, didn't ask questions, or try to get me connected.
Basic functionality still missing 2/5
“Rejoice, multitaskers”? Not so much. I find it very odd that split-view was released, but not PIP or background audio. The stream shouldn’t stop just because I leave the app for a second to check an email. I pay for YouTube Red specifically for this functionality, and it’s unfortunate that YouTube TV is inconsistent with this user experience.
Technical issues everywhere 2/5
I’m so disappointed with how unwell this app works. I have to troubleshoot and restart the app so many times to get a simple task done. Right now, I’m restarting over and over because I can’t get to maximize the movie screen, I keep touching the video screen and nothing appears on it. let alone the movie won’t start after the ad but will freeze and stop working.
I keep having issues, I really like YouTube tv and i usually never review an app. Those technical issues are going to ruin the great potential it could be, please fix.
I wish I could give it 5 stars 1/5
Every other tv streaming app I’ve subscribed to gives me PIP on my iPad, why doesn’t YouTube TV? We don’t even get to listen to the audio in the background, even though I’m a YouTube Premium subscriber! WTH
Best out there 5/5
I am a user of both Sling and YouTube TV. I pay for both because my wife loves Brazilian TV and there is no other way to get it. I have also tried other apps and I can absolutely assure you that YouTube TV is the best of the bunch by far. Keep up the good work! If they will include Brazilian programming it is buh-bye Sling.
Good so far 4/5
Local channels NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CW
Interface on iPhone/iPad/Samsung tv awesome, especially the channel preview
DVR: keeps your content for 9 mo. No restrictions if multiple shows on at same time or how many you want to save. Also if you find a show mid-season it adds previous eps
Cost is low
FF & RW are tricky
Not available on Amazon fire tv or stick
Love it, love it will never go back 5/5
Absolutely love YouTube tv I’ve had cable for years and it’s garbage compared to this I had to buy the Apple TV box to have something to support chrome cast but other than that I have never had any problems or do I have any complaints it’s very reasonably priced and always stays the same price.. love love love!!!
Issue with some programming 5/5
Does not stream all shows. Some shows can not be stream on the internet. Tried to watch the nfl games on Thursday and could not..
By 43 and counting
This app was purchased by accident. How do I request a refund
By JOC Jr.
Works perfect and has all the channels I like to watch. Being able to use the app, watch on my work desktop, and at home is the greatest thing. NFL season is coming up and as long as able to watch the Seahawks play on FoxNet there's nothing I have to complain about.
Drops Randomly 2/5
We’ll be watching a program and it’ll just drop randomly. Very annoying and happens way too often.
Pain to set up 1/5
Having more than one Google account due to work and home, this set up aggravation has led me to cancel the service. Watching the app sit and spin and do nothing, and it won’t let me set up on Apple TV. Too many barriers to using.
Far better than cable 4/5
For someone who doesn’t watch tv everyday but has favorite shows to record, this is the best option out there. Price is great, channel, tv show and movie options are great as well.
Not real DVR 1/5
Don’t expect to be able to record and watch shows. I recorded a show less than an hour ago and it’s nowhere to be found. Youtube TV’s support representative told me there was nothing they could do to help.
GET IT. 5/5
By A QUICK FIX
Tried it. Loved it. Kept it.
