Completely locked up. Kids, but then freezes 1/5
Nothing works. Reinstalled. Doesn’t work.
Doesn’t carry essential LA area channels 2/5
I’ll come back to YouTube TV after you’ve added KTLA 5 (The CW) to the Los Angeles market. Also need to add Bally’s Sports West, Bally’s Sports SoCal, Spectrum SportsNet and Spectrum SportsNetLA. Those are the channels that carry Los Angeles pro sports games, including Dodgers, Angels, Lakers, Clippers, Kings, and Ducks. Currently, Directv Stream and Spectrum TV Stream all of those channels on their streaming app for a price similar to YouTube TV, but YouTube TV doesn’t carry the Bally’s Sports or Spectrum SportsNet channels. That’s a deal-breaker for me and for most streaming customers in Southern California. With a population of 25 million people in SoCal, it’s very surprising YouTube TV has chosen not to tap into one of the largest markets in the USA.
Could be 5 star 3/5
I would give this a 5 star review if Utube tv could fix some basic issues. When rewinding, or playing back anything I have found that the the app locks up and just spins as if confused. As I am writing this, my live tv just locked up. Please correct these simple issues, you could have a great product, right now it’s ok.
Long time user 2/5
Love it at home but so annoyed that the app on my phone doesn’t work. It freezes up and can’t watch anything.
Extremely inappropriate commercials 1/5
By The Jimson
While trying to watch a wholesome family show, there’s a commercial that comes up at least once per episode (these being the mandatory adds that time down and that you cannot skip).
The commercial is of multiple male couples kissing and caressing each other for almost the entire commercial … WHILE ALL MY KIDS ARE WATCHING… WHY!?!!?… we will soon be canceling … great product, just run by cowards who bend over backwards at the slightest political pressure from the perverted left
Cant open anything 1/5
App freezes as soon as i open it cant click anything
Has the potential but will ruin your experience 2/5
Has the potential to be the best way to view tv but it’s also the least amount of value for money (4k is extra, many “regular” channels are extra even at the high price point)
The best feature for me is the “catch up through key plays” to watch sports. Butthis feature often is not working or glitchy witch ends up revealing scores etc RUINING games often.
Price point and glitches are why this is a two star review va a 4 or 5
Mr Unhappy 2/5
App works fine for my tv but completely USELESS on my iPhone. Constantly freezes up, reset the app try to click on a live show and immediately freezes up!!! Ridiculous and frustrating with all the technology today JUST FIX IT!!!!!!
Need to improve library 2/5
By Full-Time Flipper
The library lacks features such as the ability to remove episodes you have already watched or later decided not to watch (they still show up as “new”). Also need the ability to simply exit the channel guide to resume watching the show instead of having to scroll to the channel and clicking on it to exit the channel guide. Overall YouTube TV is not as user friendly as I’d expect.
iPhone 14 pro max overheating / excessive battery drain 2/5
The iPhone pro max continues to overheat and use excessive battery when in PIP.
Many other customers have complained about the same issue and all of the most recent app updates do not fix the problem.
All it needs is Affordable 4k 4/5
I like how they added TUDN, which will air Liga MX games on there. The only thing missing is Affordable 4K. I think 4k and unlimited streams should be different add ons considering they are not the same.
App Freezes Immediately 1/5
By Goog garbage
App freezes as soon as i click on anything to watch. Tried updating, deleting, reinstalling… no luck. iPhone 13 Pro Max
YouTube tv app 1/5
Just downloaded the app to watch the football games and the app won’t open. I also tried the live chat. That doesn’t work either. The send button doesn’t work. I finally decided to try it out because of the ads and offers. What a waste of time and money. Canceling on my first day!
DVR is a mess 3/5
You would think having unlimited cloud DVR storage would be a positive feature, until you realize you have no way to manage your Library. This should be a 5 star app but the DVR portion needs work.
Craptastic app 1/5
Just installed on iOS 16.2 ~ app won’t fully launch.
It keeps freezing 1/5
This app does not work!!!! I can download but I can’t click or scroll through anything!!!
Two thumbs down 1/5
You can’t choose to just record new episodes or if you wanna record all/any episodes. The service records EVERY episode set to air (old and new). 👎👎
There is no option to delete recordings (episodes you’ve watched or have already seen). Mark the episode as “watched” and they sit in your queue. 👎 Frustrating.
YT tv deletes recordings at 9 months. 👎
Compared to other steaming apps I’ve had this one is not user friendly/easy.
My husband just got us on YT tv (we had fubo tv- buffered WAY too much but I really enjoyed it otherwise; then Direct tv- had issues with Roku, deletes recordings). Plan to look into something else. I doubt google/YT will fix any of these issues since they are who they are.
New Update 1/5
The new update is awful and now, when one person is on. It tells me to many people are using. This is not true! Also to expensive for all the errors and system issues.
Only 2 days 3/5
So only had it for two days now as of right now, the app seems really good interface and I like the look of it and feel of it. It’s definitely a lot cheaper than Hulu so far not bad, but if I notice anything different, I’ll definitely change the review in a week or so.
AppleTV app update 20230116 broke channel surfing 1/5
web_20230116_10_RC00T glitches navigation in Apple TV app. Cannot browse channels. Hard to move around app. This is not a remote control issue since all other apps are fine and same issue occurs with remote app.
Device is 4th gen. Version on 4K device (same as listed above but without the ending “T”) is not suffering this list of functionality.
Needs some work 3/5
This could be a great app, but it needs a usable guide in a grid format with channels and time. Come on you guys - you can do it!
Google intentionally providing bad experience to apple users 2/5
It’s sad to see how Google is treating apple customers lately. Since September the appletv app is broken. Black screens on launch, jittery video. Contacted support. Sent them the diagnostics they needed. Then radio silence. Tonight I can’t watch live tv because the program guide won’t let you scroll past the first channel. Service is great when it works but they are neglecting this platform.
I like it a lot 3/5
I’d give it 5 stars if it wasn’t so insanely overpriced. Some of its competitors have much lower plans. I think that’s hurting YouTube TV.
Very disappointed 1/5
*Stream pixelated, *Rewind & playback doesn’t work, *Recorded shows do not play, Stream stops frequently & needs to be rebooted. Unauthorized charges, zero available Cust Service. I’ve contacted their, “support,” for 4 months now & NOTHING has been done.
iPhone 14 1/5
I keep getting error code 3 for months. Not able to watch anything on my phone. Frustrating
Too expensive 1/5
With the options you have in 2023 this app and service is not necessary, price is crazy
Speed controls please 1/5
It's possible to play back recorded content at 1.25x or 1.5x etc on Chrome on a laptop but not on the iOS app.
Please add this functionality!
I downloaded YouTube TV with a 30 day free trial was very pleased with the service until my card was charged two days later for the full amount monthly fee only three days after my free trial began I requested a refund I was told I would receive my refund within 3 to 5 business days and I have yet to receive my refund there is no free trial with YouTube TV do not fall for the scam you will be charged before the 30 days is up And obviously they won’t give you your money back I’m very displeased with YouTube TV’s customer service and I want my money back immediately if your not going to give me my money back at least give me 30 days I already paid for now I have been charged again within the first 30 days of the free trialBecause I tried to access what I had already paid for it charged me again YouTube Tv owes me $119.98 every time I speak to their customer service they won’t access to my bank account in my phone it’s all a scam they even went as far as asking me to go by hundred dollar google play card don’t fall for the scam
Makes you rewatch commercials over and over again 1/5
If you rewind a show it makes you watch the same 6 commercials AGAIN for every commercial break you rewinded back to. Why would I have to rewatch 6 more commercials each time I rewind a show? It’s very irritating and highly makes me want to switch to a service like Hulu streaming or something similar.
They told me I’d be able to watch Rockets games 1/5
Well they lied, screw this overpriced joke of a service. Oh and commercials count towards your 20 minute previews. I only needed 10 minutes to figure out why Youtube tv fails.
a lot of good perks, one big drawback 1/5
the perks: sleek UI, DVR baked in, multi-device. the drawback: I mostly use for watching live sports, often at a slight delay (nice to be able to skip through commercials). Unfortunately, the app has an annoying habit of suddenly jolting you ahead and showing you the game much later, which basically ruins the viewing experience. You’d expect better from Google engineers
And the Apple TV app is broken 1/5
By PC Gamer24
When I turn on my Apple TV boxes, the YouTube TV app will not resume playing. I have to force quit the app every time I turn on the Apple TV box. It’s really getting annoying. I have called YouTube TV support help they don’t know what’s going on this has been going on for three months. I’m canceling my service.
Ads repeated in Ad block 1/5
YouTube has commercial ads that you are forced to watched. Over 3 minutes of ads that are repeated in that 3 mins. So for example you’ll watch the same 30 second add 6 times in the 3 minutes. Torture!!
By Jim bioo
I kinda hate the app ive told a bunch of people its a waste of money. You get long commercials when I thought they wouldn’t have any like normal streaming services. I watched a show on here and it had a breaking news alert i missed 8 episodes of a show because it didn’t catch its not the show
Works great on TV, fails on iPhone 2/5
Upgraded iOS, removed YouTube Tv and reinstalled on iPhone, right after launching YouTube TV, app freezes.
Always freezes up ! 1/5
👎 no good!! Freezes up on every time I try to use it! My phone is updated and I have restarted it a few times.
By youtube is stealimg
Been paying for over a year. Put app on my phone and after one day stopped working and is now trying to charge mem
This app crashes every time I click on something to watch, it freezes. On mobile this app is not good
Works good on tv not on phone 2/5
Constantly freezes on the phone and kicks me out if the app other wise it would be 5 stars, just a lot of bugs that need to be fixed
Won't play at all 1/5
Used to work great. Now it won't play anything whatsoever on my phone. Phone and app are up to date, have done countless restarts. Love YouTube TV but the app is completely worthless now, for me.
Messing up big sports events as always 1/5
I have it set to record NFL countdown on ESPN which it does all the time. But now for the playoffs the show is titled post season NFL countdown and of course I turn it on halfway through to find out it’s not recording. This happens all the time with big sporting events and programs on this YouTube TV and it’s happened for years and I’ve told them for years and they still drop the ball all the time like this.
Audio detaches from video all the time. ALL the time
Thank you 4/5
I am so happy that you have Sunday ticket. Please do not be greedy please allow the little guy to watch Sunday ticket if it is 300 dollars this is my wish list. Yes I can cough up 300 or pay per mouth around 75 per month but you can do it weekly around 20 per mouth or do it per team 5.99 per game or just forget the whole thing and pay 9.99 for nfl +
Could be a five star cable replacement… 4/5
YouTube TV is fantastic, but as long as this service has been out, I don’t understand why you haven’t adopted Apples Single Sign On technology so that we don’t have to sign into tv apps separately each time we download one?? Please add this!!
Tried the free trial 3/5
Tried YouTube tv and decided we prefer cable. Why? Prefer to get to channel and not take so much searching for the program. We like the way NetFlix is set up. Easy & fast to find what we want and thought YOUTube would be the same way.
Who knows if we hear from others YOUTube has become user friendly then we may switch from cable. I would suggest they add the same format as cable….channels and title. YouTube has pics and videos of shows and not in alphabetical order….we scroll and scroll. I found 3 programs I liked and added to favorites. That was all I could find. Not fun searching…takes up too much time ….what’s my age…70’s. Yes, grew up with 4 channels until 1970 HBO came along…then 5 channels (paid HBO). After 1970…and first HBO…lineup grew…still growing…thank you YouTube tv for allowing the two of us a free trial. We used it a couple of times….kept going back to channels instead of time searching YouTube tv.
Major OVERHEATING 1/5
PIP overheats the IPhone 14 Pro. MAJOR FLAW IN THE APP. I CAN FRY AN EGG ON THE BACK OF MY IPHONE. Same happens wit YouTube app
Why Ads 1/5
By Cpt Blake Sr.
Even when you record episodes to watch later it makes you watch ads 😑 can’t YouTube just offer a different version to not even see ads
Wonderful experience 5/5
This app is wonderful for watching tv on the go or even at home. Highly recommend this service, plenty of channels and additional add-ons. Defiantly a great alternative to regular tv and far cheaper.
Worst Streaming App EVER 1/5
This is the worst streaming app EVER. How in the world do you expect consumers to be able to determine what show are new? Also, why can’t user pause a show and come back the next day to resume. And finally why can’t you mark shows when watched? I have cancelled my subscription and will not come back until these basic (VERY BASIC) features are added. How did you convince NFL to get Sunday Ticket? I would rather go to a bar that subscribes to this AWFUL experience. I really tried, but can’t stand it any more. Going back to DIRECTV stream. It just works regardless of the limited sports channels…..NFL is not all year long.🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
