Unauthorized Charges 1/5
Can’t contact anyone, I don’t have subscriptions yet I am being charged . I have requested a refund and to this day no refund
So far so good. But i have a recommendation. 4/5
So I am really liking YouTube TV so far. I can still watch my favorite shows and movies. But I have a recommendation as far as recording shows that would make it better. When I want to DVR a TV show, I think there should be recording options. Because let’s face it, a lot of shows have reruns. There should be options to record new episodes or reruns only. And also to record one episode at a time. And to be able to delete the recordings one at a time if I have multiple episodes recorded. I don’t like that I can’t do that. And I can’t stop recording all episodes without losing what I have already recorded. Please, please please, PLEASE!!! Take this into consideration. Still not a bad app, but could be better.
Needs work for price 2/5
NBA league pass membership add-on is spotty. Recorded a game but there is a playback error. Also ridiculous that they got baited into doing DVR ads. Not sure it’s worth the money
No background audio, no playback speed adjustment 1/5
By Mike Cerm
Without the ability to play audio in the background (and with screen off, and PiP), and without the ability to adjust playback speed, this app is completely useless to me.
YouTube tv 1/5
This is the worst streaming service available and completely overcharging for their terrible services. The ads or the worst and sometimes when the Ads finish instead of the show starting back it quits and I have to watch the same ads all over again. 0 out of 10. Would not Recommend for anybody.
Wish they had better parental controls 3/5
True you can change settings to block some inappropriate content for younger kids, but kids can just go into settings and change them right back. Wish you could passcode the settings screen (like fire sticks do) and block kids from changing any settings. This would let the parents hide channels we don’t want them to see or turn off the ratings filter. Also need ability to add a pin code to profiles and ask for it if you try to switch profiles.
Waste of Money 1/5
By Diesel 120
I’ve been looking for a cable service sorta like this one but in all honesty you don’t get what you pay for. Real cable would cost the exact same price & with that at least I could fast forward through the adds or watch something on demand with no adds & no extra cost. What’s the point in paying so much to have an add play every 5 minutes. Just trying to let y’all know do not invest in this app.
After an hour of farting around with log-ins trying to watch a game…I gave up. Useless.
Good but needs UI fixes 3/5
Content is good but main issues are:
PiP not supported on iPhone iOS which is borderline dealbreaker
Seems to be a sync issue with some live sports & commercials. Live sports streams tend to get behind so you constantly need to fast forward to catch up after commercial breaks.
Commercial audio issues. Some commercials end up ~50% louder than the content you are watching which is really annoying.
Works. Wish it multitask on iPhone 4/5
I just switched from Android to Apple for work reasons. I wish YT TV multitasked like regular YT, but it doesn’t on iPhones. You cannot minimize the screen and answer emails and looks things up. iPhone is the king of mono tasking.
It’s a shame that dapple doesn’t offer a live tv service. “Unlock to watch” errors. This is fraud.
F’s up major live sports for years 1/5
Almost every major sporting event does not record even if you have it set to,.. championship games especially and also really big games. For example i have it set to record all WNBA games.. well today the Finals started, and guess what: these CLOWNS aren’t recording it like i have it set to, and I’ve been telling them about this through feedback FOR YEARS NOW. Same thing with golf majors, for example, and baseball playoffs, plus many other MAJOR LIVE SPORTING EVENTS. How the f does EVERYBODY working there MISS THIS??!!! WAKE THE F UP
Beware location tracking 1/5
By Fraggin' awesome
I’m sure you’re shocked to learn this is creepy. Screw you Google.
I want PIP on iOS 1/5
1 star review until I get Picture in Picture on iOS. I’m tired of my show being stopped everytime I go to respond to a text message, etc.
Also, while watching a game and looking at the scores I want to be able to a) change the order of the scores so the other game I want to keep an eye on is at the top and b) be able to scroll through the scores without my game I’m watching scrolling up and away out of view.
Missed episodes 3/5
This is a good app for the most part but there is a repeated issue with the recording. If episodes are back to back, it doesn’t record the 2nd episode. I’ve reported the issue over and over. All that has to be done, is change the recording time. Seems like a simple issue to resolve for such a big company. If a program is a two part episode….it’s really irritating! I’m thinking maybe Hulu or one of the other apps does not have this issue. They all run the same price. Really holding off before I cancel but thinking I’m gonna have to change services.
Volume change 4/5
I really like the channels and the variety of shows and movies throughout the platform, although when switching channels some volume sounds different and when the show goes to a commercial and the sound increases or decreases.
Happy but a few ANNOYANCES 3/5
Ok, yes.. I am overall satisfied that YouTube TV has all the shows I care to watch (coming from cable) including local channels. #1 issue- pausing the show to read a screen (is it just me who can’t read fast enough, have to pause it or miss something important?) the SCREEN when paused is blacked or grayed out.. you can’t read the bottom 2/3rds of screen at all. Instead the lower screen is blacked out & information about the show is shown.. if I want to know that information there are other ways for that.. I HATE that they gray & black out the screen when paused. #2 some channels force you to watch their commercials. You can’t fast forward through them. Other channels you can & that is a relief. I get that this keeps the price down by having forced advertisements so my main complaint is the blacked out screen during pause.. there is no good reason to do that. I’ve never had a streaming type service do that. Please if anyone else hates this too.. please complain if enough subscribers complain, I believe Youtube TV will fix it. Fingers crossed!! The navigation takes time to adjust to.. but the programming is good enough to finally let go of cable tv, and for now I am tolerating the gray to black filter that obscured the screen when paused. One more for wishlist.. I wish you could add your favorite actors or movies & when they are aired the shows or movies they are on will automatically be recorded.. TiVO had that & it was so awesome!!!
Good streaming at home 4/5
Only downside is you can’t see local recordings if you’re traveling.
Good app for tv networks but too many commercials on recorded shows. Sometime almost 8 -10 minutes of commercials play on something that was recorded days ago. Lame
Great but no PiP or continuous play when app is minimized. 4/5
By Art Culley
Great app performance and functionality. App is easy to use and very efficient at locating and curating content you’re interested in. Service very good regarding sports. 4K sport channels is a game changer. The YouTube TV app is not as cumbersome as Hulu or Fubo. Channel content is very good and on par with Hulu. The only drawback is the lack of PiP (Picture-in-Picture). Fubo has this feature and it is awesome for sports streaming specifically. Also, on iPad or iPhone, when the app is minimized, there is no continuous video playback. Hulu, ESPN, etc… has this feature. Once these two features are added, and 4K content is expanded, YouTube TV will be the far better option. Right now YouTube TV, Hulu, and Fubo are all comparable with different pros and cons. Most comparison reviews on the net have those three services ranked in that order.
YouTube tv 1/5
By dhyyfdeefghjjuyggg. SHREK
It’s smell wired wile your watching shows
Add this 1/5
Can you make it where YouTube can do Picture in Picture please.

Constantly freezes up during FOOTBALL 2/5
By Mtn Thyme
Last year, no problem. This year, EVERY FOOTBALL GAME has issues. Look elsewhere.
Ads at screaming volume 2/5
By Benji McAvoy P
Can’t watch tv at night.. ads will load and start screaming and shaking the house. Contacted google many times.. I guess it’s part of how they make money.
DO YOU NEED HIS HAIR TREATMENT!! Or a tampon! GET IT HERE TODAY!!!!!! Do it get it here now (me scrabbling for the remote trying to turn the volume down at 11 before my neighbor and room Mate wake up.)
This is what you get for using an add basked company for your television

Is this commercial free ? 1/5
Is this commercial free ? if I a, going to PAY MONEY to watch television , WHY AM I TORTURED WITH COMMERCIALS !
Why is this so hard? 3/5
This service is ok at best. Just paid for another month and whammo, can’t access. Service went down last night around 10pm central and here it is 2am and still not running. I thought it was Comcast and was ready to give them heck only to find out it is YouTube TV. All of my other streams are functioning just fine. I’ve only had this service for 2 months but this is the second time it has gone out. I did my due diligence before choosing this service and everything that I read stated it had the largest channel selection and was very good. I’m not so sure now if that is an accurate assessment. If service cannot be brought back up, I will be requesting a refund and switching to another service.
The worst streaming app EVER!!!!!!!!!! 1/5
This has to be by far the worst of the absolute worst streaming app there is out there. Never can you watch anything with it freezing then the 100 ads: commercials they play works perfect. If your dang commercials don’t freeze why does what ever show/ movie freezes all the time all the way through save your mo ey ppl I’m going bk to Hulu Live I e given this app chance after chance to get better and it gets worse!!!!!!!
Picture in Picture where are you?? 1/5
Stop playing games with Apple and enable picture in picture for your customers.
Love it! No issues so far. Going on 7mo 4/5
Love it! No issues so far. Going on 7mo
Needs a lot of work 2/5
By Oliver Deez
I had Google Fiber TV. This is their fix for removing it in my area. YouTube TV is no where near as good of a service. Plus my internet slowed way down from switching to YouTube TV.
DVR needs a way to mark episodes as watched within the app, not on a computer. Hate that you see 20 old episodes. Again, you need an easy way to filter out new vs reruns.
Extra money for 4k? At 65.00 a month you are already at cable prices.
Picture quality is poor even. With Google Fiber.
Needs and easy info but for shows when selecting them. I hate to say it, I might have to go back to cable.
Look under Version History 1/5
It shows how clueless and pathetic you guys really are!
Only live 1/5
If you want to download episodes or movies takes money what to watch stuff when ever takes money
When they do their own commercials on the full volume all of a sudden.. I just feel like canceling my subscription lol.. hate their own commercials by the way.
If you could add a way to organize recordings via channel as well that would be great
Dolby Digital 5.1 is a fraud 2/5
Had 5.1 with YTTV, now it’s gone. YTTV claims it’s my equip..wrong. 5.1 works with recorded programming but not live. Fix your software and allow 5.1 on Apple TV devices! 4K programming not avail except on ‘21 Apple TV. Have to watch through LG OLED app. It’s fair at best.
Horrible Service 1/5
I hate how this app restricts me from watching my favorite games due to where I live. They could allow it but they are too greedy to.
Will give it 5 stars when they support Picture in Picture. Will pay $15 more to a competitor just for this feature.
Goodbye Cable 5/5
YouTube TV is not only the best streaming service, it’s the final nail in the coffin of cable television!
PiP iOS?! 3/5
By Truck n
C'mon!! What's the hold up?!
Unbelievably bad customer service 1/5
By Justin in CO
I received an email notification saying our credit card information needed to be updated by YouTube tv. No big deal, I updated the information immediately. I tried to log back in, but it said the information still needed to be updated. Well, after extensive messaging with customer service (they had to transfer our chat 3 times because “that person could no longer assist”) we learn it is literally impossible for YouTube TV to rerun your credit card information manually, and we have to wait until YouTube TV tries to rerun our card in the next 24 to 48 hours. This has resulted us in being blocked from using YouTube TV half of Friday, all of Saturday, and now in to Sunday. I’m a huge football fan, and football is 80% of the reason I have YouTube TV to begin with. Oh! They did say I could unsubscribe from YouTube TV and then resubscribe if I wanted. However, the rep we were messaging confirmed there would be no way for us to receive the $10 off promotional offer we receive for 3 months if we did this. Unbelievable.
The local now channel should be removed 5/5
I’m a huge fan of the weather channel. Local now should be removed and the weather channel should be added
Would be 5 stars with PIP 3/5
Love YTTV but how is it possible the app does not allow picture in picture?! This is a crucial feature for me as I like to use other apps while having a game on in the background. Would be 5 stars with this feature
Youtube TV 5/5
The best TV app. Tried others and definitely likes YouTube TV. Wish then price was little lower but other than that happy with it.
Love YouTube TV 5/5
I have struggled over the years with the expense of cable/dish TV. Had Dir3ect TV for years because of the football package and all the stuff that I had on the DVR that I wanted to save. Cut the dish and went to YouTube and so happy I did.
DVR just like with a physical DVR, streaming is awesome. Can have up to 3 different family members watching at the same time.
But here is the reason for the 5 starts and why, if they keep this kind of service up I will keep them forever. NBC and YouTube TV were in contract dispute. YouTube TV said we will reduce your bill since we are not providing that channel line up anymore and a solution. CBS was offline for an entire summer and Dir3ct never did that.
Thank you YouTube TV. I am happy to be your customer and you did this RIGHT!!!!
Very difficult to connect tv
Good but needs 1 major feature 3/5
I do love the app and using it as “cutting the cord” replacement but it needs to support PiP for iOS. Unacceptable in 2021. Hulu, Fubo (haven’t treated any of the others) have it and it’s amazing. I will have to go back to those options until they fix it.
