Need ability to subscribe to premium channels only 2/5
Love the channel guide but would be nice to have access to premium channel guide without having to pay for YouTube TV.
Add Picture in Picture support 1/5
I pay 70 dollars a month for the service and still can not do Picture in Picture. Kinda crazy it’s not supported even though it is possible on Android devices. Please update to allow Picture in Picture
Doesn't Work on iPad 1/5
No longer working on iPad. Will cancel subscription.
Where is season 1 5/5
I am watching Breaking Bad and I noticed that season 1 was missing. Besides that this is a great app.
Terrible on iPad Pro 1/5
By Desert SW
Took a break while it was buffering to write this review. If you leave it on auto picture quality it’s often pixelated even on a high speed connection and even on recorded programs. If you set it to a minimum picture quality it then buffers like crazy. It’s not as bad on Apple TV. But, other apps, like HBOmax manage to perform flawlessly. I suspect that Google has more money and technical expertise than HBO. They apparently just don’t care.
Boo! Audio/Video playback issues 2/5
YouTube TV app on Apple 4K TV connected to a NEW Samsung Series 7 TV via 4K HDMI cable. Phew!! I’ve had to reset the new TV & Apple TV too many times for the bloody YouTube TV to work properly. Each TV station has their own volume set, very low so you have to have the volume way high to hear anything. The video is super poor, constant circle of death occurs regularly. I thought at first it was my hardware. Sadly NO! All other apps playback is great, clear picture & great sound. I’ve read so many articles of other customers complaints similar to mine. YouRube constantly says they are working on it & is something they are aware of. That has been over a year now & it still a poor user experience. HuluTV plays back great!!
Over the summer I got rid of cable to take advantage of the deal of $54.99. They increased the price so now it’s $70 a month. Not worth it in my opinion. Shop around before subscribing to YoutubeTV.
I tried out Youtube TV to watch NBA finals. It works fine on mobile app but it’s horrible when I cast on my Samsung smart tv (lags every couple minutes, bad video quality). Tried to unsubscribe but it doesn’t allow to do so from the mobile app (why??). Ended up wasting my money for nothing.
So 4 stars for mobile app, 1 star for smart tv casting and -1 star for making it difficult to unsubscribe = 1 star
iPad Pro - HDMI to TV 1/5
This app does not work when plugging in an hdmi to connect to a tv/display. For such an expensive subscription, you’d figure they could function as well as Sling
Picture in Picture support 4/5
It would be awesome if you could add this feature to the app.
Missing Picture in picture 2/5
Overall I like YT TV. However, The app does not support picture in picture in iOS 14.
Won’t install as an app one xr iPhone 1/5
Can’t review until its able install on phone
Terrible algorithms-doesn’t keep users separate 1/5
My husband has an account in which he watches a lot of sports. I have an account in which I watch a lot of news. And yet it continues to suggest a ton of sports on my separate account. It clogs up all of my viewing—with pop—ups to synch my “fantasy football”. 😡 (And, no, he doesn’t use my account.) Apparently their algorithms are off!!
Ruined on older iPads 1/5
New update doesn't run on iPads with iOS 10. Ruined it for me, that's what I mostly used my iPad for.
No PiP Support 1/5
So ridiculous that this has no PiP support and googles refuses to add it despite it being in the YouTube app.
No longer works on IPad 1/5
By Dead In a Western
As of last week I can no longer sign in on my older IPad. Worked perfectly fine before the last update.
I wish YouTube TV didn’t dim the screen when paused 1/5
I understand I can hit the back button to make it go away. But why is it even there to begin with. Why do I have to hit an extra button on the other end of the remote to solve a problem that shouldn’t be there in the first place! Very very annoying.
What happened to the channels in search? 4/5
Works good if you have the latest iOS and hardware/newest phone. Stopped working on my older versions I used to run on. But now in search the usual logos of all the channels are gone?! Where are they? Now you have to search and scroll on ‘live’ but then to see what’s on later you have to type the channel. Not useful there.
Can’t add any networks 1/5
This is probably the worst tv app I’ve ever used. I already paid for NFL Redzone went to add it to my YouTube tv and basically gives you no option whatso ever even though the nfl red zone app allows you to use YouTube tv as a provider. You can’t add it plain and simple. Horrible app design you would think an app this big would be user friendly but it isn’t. Oh and the ‘help’ selection is even worse tells you nothing about how to add redzone or any other network to your app. Not satisfied at all.
Constant Playback Errors 1/5
Have been using for several months, but last couple months we have been getting constant playback errors. Sent feedback at first, but no help and no response. Switched from Dish to this to save money. It was good at first, then sometime after they jacked the price up the problems started. Now paying about same as I was for Dish with horrible performance and constant playback errors. Will be looking for something else.
Used to love it 3/5
Have loved this app for a while but within the past few weeks when I try to watch something it will either start playing another show or get stuck at the first part of the recording and not let me fast forward at all. Time to fix some glitches, YouTube!
Pretty good, needs PiP support 4/5
Have been a customer for more than a year and overall quite satisfied. Would like to see the app add support for Picture in Picture.
Too expensive and doesn’t support PiP on iOS, LAME! Only good part is the dvr.
Dont buy 1/5
Dont buy!! Freezes all the time. Try watching football and games and sound doesnt sync. Prices goes up on a monthly basis after they add channels that are trash and I have interest in. Stick with bunny ears IMO
Updated and now it doesn't work 1/5
I enjoyed YoutubeTV with my app for months on my ipad, but today it decided to stop working. I tried to update and reinstall, but it still won't work. I might unsubscribe.
PIP in iOS 14 3/5
By Apple fan 24681012
Is it possible to view YouTube TV in Picture-in-Picture now that iOS 14 has this capability? I’m noticing other apps have included this feature.... e.g.. ESPN.
Not happy 3/5
Freezes up, missing some channels. Price is way too much for me to pay especially if y’all aren’t going to have channels that I watch!
This app needs PIP 4/5
This app needed pip yesterday
For $65 a month, I am surprised at home many adds there are. I was looking for a better option than Hulu and Netflix. I like the live options but the ads are extreme.
Expensive & Cut Me Off! 1/5
By Great Skate
I've been cut off from my older iPad mini that runs IOS 10.
The app worked perfectly fine before this recent FORCED
update. It now says IOS 11 or newer. Thanks a lot - NOT.
Also, another price increase and some channels taken away.
I'm seriously considering cancelling, since now I only have
one device that I can use this service on (who knows for how
long before another forced update cuts me off of that one,
Best ever 5/5
Worth it. Best tv out there so far.
Doesn’t support picture in picture 1/5
Google doesn’t want to support Apple APIs so they do everything their own way. I could understand not supporting iOS features like PiP on non paid accounts but that’s a deal breaker for a $65 a month service.
Terrible performance 2/5
The streaming is constantly interrupted with buffering. I run speed tests on my network WHILE it is buffering and get great results. My isp reports significant bandwidth available WHILE it is buffering... all other internet activities run fine WHILE it is buffering... this service is terrible.
You'll take our money.....and our tv...... 1/5
We're fire victims and lost 5 structures. We were lucky to get out.....others didn't. Now with "planned obsolescence " we're losing tv for our "old" iPads which we managed to throw in our go bags. The ipads can't update to OS11 so both Apple and Google (YouTube TV) treat us like the Big Orange Weenie. Yeah why shouldn't the practice of taking people's money be ....."political". Hey if you want to play....you got to PAY!!!!!
Won’t display when using a projector 2/5
Used to work perfectly with my Epson projector from an iPad Pro via HDMI connection. Now, the volume works but the display won’t even come up after choosing the channel within the app. Updated iPad about a week ago and the YouTube tv app yesterday.
Great Concept but Lags in Features 3/5
1.) 6 family member accounts is GREAT; however only 3 screens can watch at once. If you have kids, kids in college or travel often- this becomes a nightmare to manage.
2.) why can’t you use PIP with iTunes 14? Seriously- how far behind can this be?
Took my money , 0 stars. Thanks Greedy Google 1/5
I signed up for the 7 day “Free” trail, and they charged me the full $64 , and wouldn’t refund me. Thanks Google . Trash
App is just ok 3/5
By Apex Titan
Regardless of what you think of the cost of the service, the YouTube TV app seems a little behind the times. It doesn’t support picture-in-picture, which is a bit of letdown. I only really subscribe for sports, and since there have been so many games on concurrently due to the pandemic, it would be nice to have more than one game up at once. On a related note, on iPadOS, I can’t use background video to keep streaming through the YouTube TV app while using another app.
Also, it doesn’t seem like much effort has been expended on integrating with the various Apple TV features that have been available for the last few years. For example, when I get a close game alert from tvOS, it doesn’t seem like I can use that alert to change to that game in YouTube TV.
Finally, the Apple TV app is regularly unresponsive to input when it reopens after the device has been put to sleep, requiring a force kill.
Overall, this seems like a fairly weak effort from one of the largest companies in the world.
DVR loses audio frequently 3/5
Offering DVR functionality is great, but as soon as any function of the DVR is used and Play is pressed, the audio goes out. More frequent than not.
Version not supported 1/5
I have an older iPad that is on an older iOS. With the most recent update of this app it no longer works. I'm forced to get an update but its not available for my iOS. Not sure why YouTube TV can't let me use the same app that has been working for some time.
Local NBC 2/5
Why did my local NBC affiliate in Tucson, AZ frame rate change from 60 FPS to 30? This happened this past Sunday for some reason! Please, fix this because it makes watching football games unbearable. I reached out to customer service and they were not helpful and didn’t have any answers! We need answers soon or we will be switching streaming services.
Switching to Spectrum streaming 2/5
YouTube TV raised the price and I am convinced users get booted from their stream as soon as a 2nd user starts streaming- unlike the 3 at a time they claim. Not worth it anymore. Spectrum Streaming allows for 5 instances at a time and is still Less expensive even with the sports package I added.
Not worth the price 1/5
Started out paying 54.99 for the first 3 months then went up to 69.94 with no warning and commercials are ridiculous
Stopped working 1/5
By Mac Jit
Made me update and no longer works. Wish I didn't have to update. Worked great before.
Decent so far. Missing PIP 3/5
Seems decent so far. We get our Internet over a mobile hotspot (only option where we are right now) and YouTube TV and AT&T TV Now are the only two streaming services that allow it. The interface for YTTV is better and streaming football games on CBS and NBC actually works. However, I do miss Picture-In-Picture support on YTTV. This feature is awesome on AT&T’s service but unavailable with YTTV for some reason. I have a month to try it out and see which one I’ll stick with.
Needs a few updates 2/5
Need Picture in Picture mode on iPhone and have a lot of ads
Great Service, but getting expensive 4/5
We’ve had YoutubeTv for about 1.5 years and really liked it; but it’s starting to get expensive. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
UTube TV 4/5
Overall I like it, but there’s a few problems. It keeps freezing the picture but not the sound, and it buffers too often. On some of the movies with saltier language, they overlay the words with cleaner words. It ruins the feel of the movie. Also, I’m furious that they stopped showing Morning Joe any time you want it, and show 45 minutes of the previous day’s show. I don’t get up at 4 am to watch a show, and like to see it when I want to se it. You really need to put it back the way it was.
Doesn't work with older IOS 1/5
I have an iPad 4 that I use around the house. The YouTube tv version I had worked great. Then it stopped working with a warning saying I have to upgrade. Upgraded and it just keeps saying I have to update. Then I deleted the app and installed a fresh version. Now I click sign in and it just keeps taking me back to sign in. Never do I get prompted to actually enter credentials.
