Great service 5/5
Fantastic service best live tv streaming option and I have tried them all
Great when it works 2/5
Love the app WHEN it works. It constantly freezes when I select a channel to watch. Close the app restart 15-20 times before I can finally select a channel.
But when it works, it’s great.
This app only allows three nfl games during the Sunday slate. Will not allow 4 games during the early hours.
Bad streaming quality 2/5
I have tried this foe a month and have has constant freezing of live tv. I’m going back to Hulu live stream
3 mo trial lasted a week… 1/5
Wow. They can’t even get a trial to work. Don’t waste your money on this service. Extremely overpriced and obviously riddled with bugs.
Not working 1/5
By Choc 13
I don’t understand we pay for premium when it doesn’t work
Beware Free Trial!!! 1/5
Signed up for free trial and app and website will not allow me to cancel during free trial period. I followed all instructions explicitly, filed over 30 complaints with Google and still the Cancel Subscription option is unavailable. Seems like a trick to stop users from cancelling during free trial period so as to allow Google to automatically charge the customer for one month. Very unethical and frustrating!!
This app won’t let me sign up and I have to uninstall and reinstall for it to even open properly.
I did not down load it on this phone 2/5
ipaid best buy for all of it that i got from Ruku
Customer service was atrocious 2/5
By Kymber Nicole
I love YouTubeTv but customer service is no help when there's a problem.
Resets to beginning of Show continuously 1/5
Easily the worst app I’ve ever used.
It’s okay 4/5
Get A&E, Reelez channel and this would be the best streaming service out
Video quality preferences in Settings disappeared 1/5
Every single video always plays at “(Auto) 480p)”. I can manually change everything I watch to 1080p, but according to Google’s own iOS YouTube TV support page - there’s an option called “Video quality preferences” in the app’s Settings menu. This setting apparently allows us to set all videos to the resolution we choose (if available). Well - that option does not exist in Settings or anywhere else. So I’m stuck paying $74 a month for an app where I have to manually change the resolution from 1980s quality (on a 500 down/50 up connection I might add) on every single thing I watch. Fix it.
No surveys 1/5
By No no Favorites
Not paying to have silly surveys pop up during commercials.
Not Happy 1/5
I have been trying to cancel my monthly subscription. They charged $38 to cancel. And never did. I cannot get a real person to talk to about it. They charged $68 again this month!! I’m still trying to cancel!!!!!!!
Ipad App Picture In Picture Bug 1/5
By Aaron Dantonio
Picture in Picuture on Ipad always crashes. Doesn’t have that problem with Fubo. Also, Fubo allows you to have 4 screens on a tv. A youtube stuck in the 1990s.
Performs well but insanely expensive and they keep adding channels i have no interest in and raising the price. Not only do they charge u more than any other streaming service but u also have ur shows interrupted by a dozen commercial breaks. Even tho i get up and do something and dont watch the commercials theyre still annoying. For this high of price there shouldn’t b commercials. Thats super greedy. Youtubetv u should split ur base plan into smaller options something similar to what sling does. Like basic cable channels u can get thru antenna plus popular premium channels like amc, syfy, freeform, fx, etc in one base plan and all the kids junk channels like disney, nick, cartoon network, etc and sports crap like espn etc into another base plan. Price each base plan at a much more reasonable $30-40 range. I’m not interested in the majority of the channels u offer. Just the basic channels and the amc, syfy, fx, premium type or movie channels. Don’t care about kids or sports or new channels at all. And i hate ur price but unfortunately ur one with the best UI out of the few streaming service options that includes live tv as well as dvr/vod. Ur add on channels r a nice option but again they’re not any channels i’m interested in.
This app is YouTube’s shame 1/5
The app is literally unusable. It’s freezes every time I click on anything it’s freezes. You guys are YouTube owned by google and your flagship streaming app is embarrassingly buggy on iOS and iPad OS and has been this way for a couple of years. Not exactly on brand guys. Go with sling or something else. YouTube tv disrespects their users.
Absolutely not 1/5
$65 a month with 10,000 ads! Definitely not worth it might as well pay an extra $30 for cable because there is less ads!!!
App Continues to Freeze Up 3/5
App freezes up when tapping and choosing a channel.
Just full of bugs 1/5
YouTube tv is just buggy on all devices including android smart tvs. I have a case that has been open for 4 months. ABC local keeps buffering rendering it unwatchable. I’m glad to cut the cord but there is cost which equates to horrible service.
Awful glitchy 0/10 don’t recommend 1/5
By worst updates known to apps
I’ve made numerous reviews of the issues in this app and they keep deleting them. Probably also why the app star rating is still over 3. Who knows how many others reviews they deleted. GET SLING TV . YouTube tv is awful and reporting issues never fixes anything.
Expensive - Frequent Ads 1/5
This service is VERY EXPENSIVE for what you get - which is mostly OLD reruns and local news. There are also very frequent ads. The ads are the same thing over and over. I just LOVE medication commercials being pushed down my throat 60 times a day!
Don’t waste your money. PlutoTV is free! Less ads!
I recently purchased YouTube tv for when I’m on the go so I can watch football, however it seems like the app will not even open up on my iPhone. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I googled ideas to try to resolve the issue and noting seems to work. I paid 70 dollars for this membership and can’t it won’t even load up on my phone??!?! I feel like I’m getting scammed because I can’t even use it for the reason I purchased it…
Cut the chord, but having a tough time 3/5
At first I was excited about switching, but the DVR screens are a nightmare. Sync between what was viewed on different access devices is not accurate. Once you have watched something it doesn’t disappear from your library while other times if you stop watching in the middle it disappears from your library.
User should be able to control recording new episodes over old episodes. Should be able to choose whether to leave or remove from the library.
When you pause a program if you wait to long to unpause it resets to current position and you lose whatever happened from your pause time to the current time.
I’m looking for other streaming options, but YouTube TV seems to have one of the most complete line ups.
Freezes when switching from landscape to portrait 2/5
For months the app has been freezing and then crashing 5 seconds later when the iPad switches to portrait from landscape. In my case it’s just when I’m walking with my iPad from one room to the other that the iPad inaccurately thinks I’m meaning for it to switch to portrait - regardless, YouTube TV shouldn’t be freezing and crashing for such a simple switch. I’m on a newer iPad pro so I have to imagine that many others are also experiencing this.
Keeps switching to live TV 1/5
The app keeps switching away from what I am watching to live TV. It does this every minute and a half....
Keeps freezing up 2/5
By Big Jay77
I’m used to their quirks, until roughly a month and a half now this app just completely freezes after opening.
I am honestly thinking of dropping these clown’s , for what they charge.. the service is unacceptable!
App not working 1/5
The app won’t even start
Absolutely horrible DVR 1/5
I'm getting so frustrated with the app on my TV that I am about to switch over to something more reliable. Program works great until you try to pause or rewind a show and then you get the little circle of death wheel and you have to either exit out of the program or completely delete it and reinstall it. Soooooo frustrating 🤬🤬🤬
How do I cancel YouTube tv 1/5
There is no phone number to speak to anyone I tried disputing these charges with my credit card but they refuse to stop the charges I don’t even use YouTube tv I do use YouTube free version, these big corporations are scamming people out there money, the service is set up so you get frustrated and give up so since my credit card chase is owned by google I will cancel my card account,
Frequent glitches 2/5
Frequent random glitches including pixelation, skipping content, and repeating 2-3 seconds of content. All apps- iOS, FireTV, Vizio. I’m ready to bail
By Blue eyes05
Don’t know what the problem is my the app is not working can’t get it to open up sometimes then if it does it freezes up
Getting worse and worse 1/5
This app keeps getting worse and worse smh doesn’t record shows it’s supposed to even after you add them to your list. You come home excited after a long day of work to watch a show and it’s not even there and it’s frustrating smh I used to really love this app but I might just switch to sling or Hulu tv I’ve heard many good things about those too and they have better ratings
Nonstop political ads 1/5
By Logan Grant
Plus censorship. You’re not slick.
Best deal on the planet baby 5/5
Great service, great company and great people god bless YouTube TV. 🤪
Available Networks 4/5
I thoroughly enjoy this app. Would y’all be open to adding more networks to the listings, like TVOne, CW, etc.?
No way to delete recordings - they keep accumulating like trash in a Sanford & Sons junkyard. Also no way to view a program from where you left off - you have to start at the beginning each time you return.
Rarely Records Correctly 1/5
I’ve used YouTubeTV for about 2 years and the quality has really sunk. DVR rarely works correctly. It either doesn’t record the show or starts recording too late. You can give feedback and it says YouTubeTV will review the error within 24 hours, but they never do. Well, maybe they do review it and just don’t fix it.
ZERO STARS. A ripoff. 1/5
Worked great last year. I subscribe during football season. I work nights and weekends so being able to record pro and college football games to watch later was worth every penny. This year, it will not record Patriots games. Three weeks in a row it did not record. After two weeks and many many emails, they finally told me that because of network agreements I can't record them. So, I've paid for 2 months, about $180 so far this year, but have not been able to watch a single Patriots game. It's a shame what Google has done to it🤮
Note: Out of about 75 FBS DIV. 1 NCAA football games this week, I was only able to record FOURTEEN.
And, of course most of the games I wanted to watch were
UNAVAILABLE due to network contractual agreements.
The one I really wanted to watch- No. 1 Georgia- nope! Couldn't watch that one.
14 out of 75.
And they think that's worth $90/monh?! Only being able to watch/record 18.67% of the games for $90/month is robbery.
Please bring a new channel to YouTube TV 3/5
Please bring this channel to YouTube TV. It’s a farming channel. It’s called RFD-TV Now. Repeat please bring this channel to YouTube TV. It’s called RFD-TV Now
. PS can you update your trial version option to a year repeat PS can you grade your trial to year. You get this please respond via developers email
App startup issues 3/5
I open the app and the start up screen looks fine but then is not receptive to any touching, swiping, or selecting from the menu or opening screen. When the app it does work it’s excellent! It does not work frequently however :/
Not impressed 1/5
By NickNamed 77
Installed and reinstalled multiple times and app freezes. Works great on Roku but need to figure out why the app can’t run on my iPhone.
By ^_Big guy
It freezes as soon as I open the app. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it with no improvement.
Way too complicated 1/5
They make the sign in process way to complicated if you’re trying to connect different devices and TVs to your plan
More ads than regular YouTube 1/5
About 12 ads before I could finish an episode :/ what’s the point?
The keep locking episodes on Fox News 1/5
YTTV keeps locking episodes of Tucker Carlson and if you wanna watch you have to subscribe to Fox Nation. Hey YouTube I ALREADY PAY YOU FOR FOX NEWS, WHY WOULD I PAY AN ADDITIONAL $6 FOR ANOTHER STREAMING SERVICE TO WATCH YOUR CONTENT?!!! I think they lost my business.
So many commercials 2/5
For the price they charge they should really get rid of the commercials
App is crap 1/5
Freezes every time I try to use, think I’m going to try Hulu Live.
