Add darkmode and phone connect feature 3/5
Add ability to enable dark mode like the desktop version. AND allow the connect to tv option like the youtube app has so i can use my phone to control my tv like on youtube!!!!
Great TV service 5/5
Have had no problems and really like the service and dvr space. Only wonder when are they going to add more channels like NFL network for the upcoming season. Other than that it’s awesome!!
Background audio 2/5
There’s no option for audio only. When you put your phone’s screen to sleep the audio stops. When you switch to another app the audio stop. YouTube can do this YouTube TV should do it too.
Pretty Good; Needs Some Fixes 4/5
I love the app, I really do, but when I’m trying to watch a show, and then close the app, it loses all my progress. The app really needs some sort of “continue watching” feature, similar to Netflix or even the Roku version of YouTube TV. Often times I have to leave the app open on my phone to save my progress, which drains my battery. I would binge watch these shows on demand, but I have a short attention span!! Love the app, just needs that one fix.
Delayed on Apple TV 1/5
Sound is delayed from Apple TV to Apple Home Pod. Every other app the sound is fine. I reinstalled and installed several times. YouTube TV says there is nothing wrong. Only YouTube TV app does not work. Be cautious if you have Apple Home Pod.
It was a good app until they priced out pretty much everyone 1/5
By MUSIC CREDIC #1
What’s the difference between YouTube TV and any other cable package now? We didn’t want the extra content—we wanted the convenience of television access on our smartphones without the exorbitant prices and baggage that comes with most cable companies. Unfortunately the recent price hike has priced most of us out—I can’t justify spending $600 a year on television, nor can most consumers. So good bye YouTube, I’m sad it had to end this way.
Love YouTube TV hate apple charges $5 more 5/5
Price is 49.99 unless you sign up through app downloaded through iTunes the it’s 54.99. For no reason. YouTube tv has worked great for us though.
Not worth the cost anymore! Cancel and Delete! 1/5
On Apple TV you cannot unpause with the Play/Pause button if you pause via the button. You have to press in on the main touch selection area if the remote to unpause. You need to fix this!
Why am I paying you to get MT channel?! Great, now everyone can watch Barrett-Jackson auctions 24/7. Is MT good for anything else? Seriously... who at Google thought that was a good channel to get and then force your subscribers to pay for?!
And now they raise the price and force us to pay for channels we don’t want! You can’t just raise prices on people. You wanted to sign the deal with the networks, YOU PAY FOR IT AND ABSORB THE COST!!!!
Should be able to allow for subscription/channel changes via the app and NOT JUST VIA PC BROWSER in Settings!!!! Should have the same Settings options in the app as well, regardless of device!
iOS version of the app for iPhones needs to have a guide view if you’re in the Live tab and rotate phone to Landscape. This is needed so that people can easily find a program happening later in the day and schedule a recording. Yeah, I know, you can search for it and then set the recording that way, but that only works with movies and shows that kind of have set times. For live events and sporting shows like Indian Wells tennis tournament on TC, you can’t always find this easily on search and what’s needed is the guide which shows you the live time range it’s set for so that you can set a recording for it and whatever is after it because usually they run late and guess what?... your stupid DVR option doesn’t allow for live program record time extension, so the match I wanted to record gets cut off if the matches run late and out of that guide time window. Cable companies have added the option to extend a recording past its end time so that this doesn’t happen... especially when the range is like 2PM to 10PM. You know the matches are going to extend past the 10PM eastern time because they’re in California, so if my 6PM California time match starts late and ends late guess what? I miss it because I don’t have these DVR custom options, much less a guide to be able to schedule the other guide listing AFTER the live coverage event to make sure I have it in there somewhere. Think Google, THINK! #biff
YouTubeTV stinks with iPad Pro gestures 2/5
I seriously do not like the YouTubeTV app with an iPad Pro. It’s like YouTubeTV isn’t even trying. If you use the multitask gestures of a swipe up from the bottom, YTTV forwards right to where you finger crossed the timeline. If you use the bottom to left or bottom to right side gestures for app switching, it does the same thing.
This has wrecked multiple sporting events because of this lame issue.
decent, almost great 2/5
I like the interface and overall functionality. Would be great to have the ability to mark shows “watched” so it’s easy to tell what I’ve already seen. It shouldn’t be too difficult to implement from a coding standpoint.
Also not a fan of the recent price hike; give us the option to choose what channels we want, I’d rather a higher per-channel rate and have the ability to choose which channels I’m paying for, instead of paying for a bunch of channels I don’t ever watch.
Another possible solution to provide us with more options is to offer a tiered pricing model. this product has the ability to revolutionize the market but it seems like Google is more interested in a cash grab. disappointing
Best TV Streaming App! 5/5
This is one of my favorite apps of all time! Great tv, which is live. It will give you local stations/news based on location and it is best for sports with numerous “beyond cable” channels.
Thank you YouTubeTV for creating this great application!
DO NOT BUY Way too expensive 1/5
This app is way to expensive!!!!!!! Use fios or direct tv or any cable company you will have a way better experience!!
Love it but..... 5/5
Made the correct choice. It’s everything they said it would be. My only regret: thought I was agreeing to pay $49.00 per month rather than $54.00 plus.
Big pile of liberal crap.
Great App, but 2 Glitches (one is brand new w/ latest update) 2/5
1) new glitch - absolutely no one has my login information, but since updating the app is telling me that I’m watching from another location and playback is suspended. This is impossible. I force close the app and restart and it’s fine. Please fix.
2) existing glitch - when watching a recorded program, if you try to switch to a different recorded program from the same network, it fails to load. If I switch to a different network, and then try, it works. But there seems to be an error that occurs 100% of the time when switching between recorded shows from the same network, or live TV from that same network.
I like it but is confusing 2/5
So is free cable but iOS users pay $54.99? Ok that’s kind of contradictory...as of June 2019 new users cannot use this in iOS but you have to use iTunes? This is very confusing....unless I’m missing something....I was on a family plan now I’m not and I want to have my own YouTubeTv but I sign in and all I can do is either sign out or contact them.....all I want is to watch YouTubeTv that’s it.....I’m probably missing something but that’s what the page says once I open the app to try to get my own YouTubeTv
Ease of Use 5/5
Everything you want and an app like this.
No longer impressed 2/5
When Google launch YouTube TV, it was truly disruptive. Now it's really lagging.
A user interface that is dated behind Netflix, Amazon, and Google's own YouTube (Y-TV has no dark mode yet!).
Many people like to watch TV in a darkened room, their tablet blinding them thanks to YouTube TV's white background.
And they keep raising the prices, and increasing the channel lineup, when data shows the vast majority of TV viewers only want a few channels. One day someone will realize the market doesn't want all those other channels... and why should they pay for it?
Streaming television has many other options these days.
Title Screen Is Transparent over the Show 5/5
When watching YouTube TV on my iPad, the title screen remains semi transparent on top of the TV show. This is obviously a huge bug! You are forced to watch this static title screen and the show at a 50/50 transparency. Please fix right away. Tv is unwatchable on iPad iOS.
YouTube TV 5/5
By Tommy from New York
So far, so good.
For me, Spectrum cable was NOT USER FRIENDLY in that set-up was a hassle.
I switched to YouTube TV today and it’s been super easy to navigate
Only issue was the recording option; had to call customer service, dude on phone was cool unlike others, fixed the issue, works great.
Great selection 5/5
By Robert W Rogers
The channel selection is phenomenal (just add MTV & Nick!) And the interface is clean, organized and has a beautiful design. I love the free DVR and ability to keep your recorded shows as long as you wish (at no additional cost). It works great, haven't experienced interruptions or lagging/freezing screen yet.
I hope that you continue adding new features and tools, and channels and stop raising the pricing. It is a bit high for an Internet TV service. Other than that, I absolutely recommend.
unable to cancel subscription 1/5
They have made it impossible to cancel the subscription.
Audio problem 5/5
Local TV channel experiencing audio problem, audio gets abrupt every second, please fix asap
Still experiencing audio problem, after playing few minutes, audio became on and off every second!!! My ios is latest.
The latest version is full of bugs. Can’t fast forward, can’t go to “live”. Randomly restarts your program- good luck getting back to where you were. And commercials are now replaced by annoying YouTube TV ads. Yuck.
It crashes way too much 2/5
It crashes way too much
I determined that my subscription wasn’t worth paying for and cancelled it over a month ago (after 2 weeks of trial). Please don’t try to bill me again.
Company is trash and so is the app.
Bait and switch 2/5
By Card man
Although I like YouTube TV, I dislike watching one show then after several episodes having google decide I want to watch another completely unrelated show that I have no desire to watch. Thanks for nothing!
Apple TV App Terrible Scrubbing 1/5
The latest update for Apple TV is terrible. The scrubbing doesn't work. The play pause button doesn't work. A complete train wreck.
Initially Leery - Now LOVE It! 5/5
I was quite leery about trying YouTube TV because I had always used traditional cable or satellite TV providers. My wife asked her Facebook friends about which non-traditional TV service did they like. A lot of people that we trust highly recommended YouTube TV, so we signed up. We agree with our Facebook friends... We L-O-V-E the service. Many benefits come along with the service including 6 different gmails accounts can share the TV service, something akin to Apple’s Family Sharing. Each of the 6 accounts can watch TV on numerous devices. We really like the YouTube TV service.
Increased price by $15, $20 if you pay with Apple 2/5
By Maximilian L
Loved the service before, but going from $35 a month to $50 is outrageous. Cancelled as soon as it went into affect. They claimed they were different than cable, but they’re exactly the same. Forcing channels we don’t watch and increasing the price significantly for that unwatched content. For the shows I actually watch, I plan to just buy season passes from Apple now.
Also the app doesn’t support picture in picture, so you can’t watch tv which using other apps
Not very good 1/5
By Dawson magee
I downloaded this app and saw Dallas !!!!
GETTING BETTER 3/5
By C Patrick C
The operating software received a nice upgrade this last week. Thank you. The business model is disappointing. I must pay for so many channels that I do not want. Please give your customers a choice in the channels we receive. The ability to have accuracy in FF and REWIND is great along with the ability to set the bit rate.
Ads with paid service is not cool 1/5
Youtube TV is great to watch with the ability to search for shows and episodes at different times. The forced ads are unacceptable. If we are paying a premium for their service, we should not be force to watch ads after ads after ads! Can’t do it anymore. I’m out.
Good, but too much money 2/5
I like the app and when it was 39.99, it seemed like a reasonable deal. Then out of nowhere, they hiked the price to $54.99 while offering almost nothing more for it. Change the price back down and I'll be a 5-star reviewer - until then, it's not worth the money.
Worst usability ever 1/5
By Korean fried chicken 233
Everything is a clickbait. No idea how to use the app. Clicking into a show doesn’t mean you can watch it. They show you a showtime in the future.
Can’t play 3/5
In my library I will try to play a show it will say not available in your area . Really aggravating
Don’t like the latest update 1/5
Can’t look/skip ahead without it stopping/freezing. That was important watching sports. 👎🏻👎🏻
Great Option 5/5
By Life On Mars ?????
Much Better Than I Thought It Would Be !!!!! Good Job !!!!!
Terrible after the price raise 1/5
I’ve been a supporter of YouTube TV for years, but this new price change just ruined it for me. Way too expensive now.
Poor suggestions in new update. 1/5
I have to spend so much time lately to delete the terrible “top picks for you” that YouTube TV is now showing me. It is literally showing me at least 5 of the shows I absolutely hate and will never watch and new, almost as terrible, shows are replacing them, making this a really annoying cycle. Fix your algorithms and stop forcing garbage programs in my face.
Glitchy when casting to Roku Stick 3/5
Sometimes it works fine but other times it won’t cast at all. Such a big bummer. I wish there was a YouTube TV app on Roku.
Constant buffering on channels we always watch. 2/5
We had YouTubeTv through the App 1st got tired of the buffering so we changed. Were told things got better so changed back. Now the few channels we constantly watch always buffer no others do. Finally I canceled it through the App & am going straight through YouTube TV & no problems whatsoever & cheaper!!
Waste of money 1/5
By Mr vmd
Waste of money
Bring back searching by network like other devices still have 3/5
I often add new shows by going to search and clicking a network. For some reason that vanished and needs to come back.
A streaming or a generic cable company 1/5
Why do I need to receive a call, email, or opt to live chat? Almost bought it until y’all made the process annoying by not letting me just choose channels and give you my money. Do better
Great, except for two exemptions. 2/5
Like this app very much. One problem is it doesn’t get the local PBS channel.
Another problem with selecting one show to record with the push of a button on your remote. You have to record a series, including older shows, then search through all the shows to find the only one you wanted to record.
Perhaps that will be fixed in future updates.
Another big problem: way too many commercials!
Problem no caption 1/5
Please fix closed caption asap. Many deaf and I complain about no caption.
Horrible buffering with YouTube TV 1/5
By Ad Sellout
I cut cable after trying YouTube TV for a couple days. Loved it. For the last week I’ve experienced horrible buffering on my Apple 4K TV. All of my other live streaming devices work great on my Apple TV. I followed the instructions on Apple’s chat board and numerous sites where everyone is complaining about this problem. YouTube TV says they are working to fix the bug in their app. Threads have been on going for a year. This is unacceptable. If you plan to cut cable, find another service as you will be disappointed and frustrated with YouTube TV.
