    Other streaming services remember where you are in a program youtubetv doesn’t. I would give it five stars other than that. I like the fact I can watch on different devices, Roku, tablet, phone, or computer. The unlimited cloud recording is fantastic.
  • Decent, but needs to support iOS/tvOS FF/RW

    It’s good. It’s fast. It’s reliable. However scrubbing/fast forward is horrible. It’s the worst. Also, it does not work with my Homepods on AppleTV. Very disappointed.

    Sitting here on Saturday. Trying to watch football but nonstop commercials on EVERY CHANNEL ALL THE TIME. Paying $50 to watch commercials is not worth it. Expected better.

    Needs to support Apple TV remote for selecting up and down channels. Needs to be able to go back to last watched channel - especially when on the guide.

    I’ve subscribed to Sling, Hulu and tested everything in between. For me $10 more per month is worth it. Google obviously knows how to do video well with YouTube. And you can tell when you start using YouTube TV. Live sports > great. On-demand > great. DVR > great. Local TV > great. Haven’t had a live recorded game spoiled for me yet. The best is the fast forward in 15 second increments. Perfectly responsive and precise. The only criticism I have is not being able to start movies from the beginning with a single click. You have to manually rewind if you’ve started it already. With all the other awesomeness I’m fine with the one problem. Good job google.

    I was loving youtube tv so much, my dad even let us keep it because he was considering cancelling his membership. I was watching all these different tv shows, and the next morning I wake up, all of them were taken off! I am unhappy, and I ask for them back. Shows like “Good Luck Charlie” or “Austin and Ally”. People download this app because netflix or hulu does not contain your content. But when you removed that content, what do we have now? I’ll have to say that I’d be fine if my dad removed his membership.

  • Playback on iOS/iPadOS stops

    2
    By iCrosswhite
    In the middle of playback on mobile devices, the video will just stop and fail to load anymore. You can navigate the app, see what’s coming on live TV next, but when you select a channel, it stops working. The internet otherwise works. It will load other content like scores and things, but no video. Other apps of course work. The only thing that will allow it to resume is if you restart the device, or reinstall the app. Needs work.

    No problems with streaming, playback, quality or dvr, but the interface is terrible. Home/top picks? For who? Not me. Needs a better algorithm. How do I add more channels? Can’t do it from the app. Can’t do it from the browser. They cycle an endless loop and I can’t even give them more money. I can’t even see the prices of add ons. Safari sends me to Chrome, Chrome sends me to the app.. no option. Annoyed. I try to go back and I end up having to pick my account/login again Rhenish back to the app 🙄. Glad to see it on FireTV but let me manage my channels without having to go to a computer because I will SWITCH before I do that.

    On Apple TV, the guide no longer plays the live channels as you highlight them. Some play, some remain with the static show image. This needs to be fixed. 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

    Absolutely do not get this app if you’re using google cast. Sound only works for the advertisements, not the actually video. Bugs galore! Total waste of time and my money. I wish I could give negative star reviews.
  • Too many ads

    By t33jay83
    Live streaming is excellent. But I hope they we can skip ads for watching recorded videos. Too many ads. Would have been a 5 five star. But for now only 3 stars for too many ads.

    We just decided to cut the cord and YouTube TV is our first choice based on reviews and a little basic research. We love it so far with the exception of it not having my favorite channel. Now we're looking for a supplemental service that includes it until such time that you offer it. I'm hoping it will be in the near future. Otherwise great experience so far!!

    I signed up on my iPhone. The YouTube video that supposedly tells how to cancel $49.99/month YouTube tv for those who signed up on an iOS device, does not depict screen options available on my iPhone 6. I have not been able to cancel my subscription. Shame on Google and YouTube. I always thought highly of Google. I never imagined this kind of behavior. Not facilitating a subscription cancellation.

    Went on a trip and tried to watch a game on cbs. The location search function failed to find me and wouldn’t end the script. I could have found and entered my exact location faster with a sextant than this app could.
  • User interface needs work

    YouTube TV is a solid product and a great value for the money however the user interface need work. Sorting thru shows is a clumsy experience. It was also be greatly improved if it supported Picture in picture.
  • Good start but needs improvements

    3
    By SuperDaveGr
    I cut the cord with Comcast, like many here. A few improvements could help. First, make the skip ahead and skip back buttons 30 seconds instead of 15. Most commercials that you can skip when on the DVR are more than 2 minutes. Fewer hits of the button to get past the commercials. Second, put the skip buttons on the wake screen. When watching tv and I come to a commercial, I have to unlock my iPad first then hit the 15 second skip button. Would be nice to be able to open my iPad and have those buttons available. Last, if I’m paying for you tube tv, why do I need to pay for YouTube premium to be able to power off my IPad when casting to my tv? Throw us bone. Other than that the picture quality has been good to great. Occasionally the app freezes and I have to restart but only once in a while. I love that I can select any movie to record when it comes available. I am a lot less picky on what I record with unlimited DVR storage. If the price goes up again I’ll have to re-evaluate other options. My kids watch YouTube and me and my wife like a few shows.
  • User Interface is horrible

    1
    By ITriskman
    I have to say it’s a very confusing interface and hard to figure out how to navigate. Where do I start. First of all when you book mark shows and then go to your Library not all my shows that have been recorded and have new episodes show up in “New to Library”. But are in shows. However, remembering which shows you watched when and when did they air isn’t easy to figure out. Actually I don’t know how to figure it out. Also, there’s not place I can go to that gives me a quick and easy place to see the title of the episode and a short synopsis. And for some reason I have some shows added to my library and but when I go into it there are no episodes at all showing. ARG!!!! Also, when the app first opens it should ask which user you’d like to log in as and then remember that users settings and shows booked marked, watched, etc. I think YouTube TV has a long way to go!!! So upsetting.
  • Worst entertainment/streaming app. Steer clear of ad express

    1
    By Shashwat_J
    It is full of ads. Ads at every few minutes. If you ever even close a vide you will be punished with more long ads. Each ad is more than 2 minutes in length. Just when you are in brink of a climax in movie/show it resets and shows an ad and then starts from beginning. If you try to go back it doesn’t let you. You are forced to force shut app and reopen. When you continue you are again greeted with tons of ads. I felt like as if they should pay me to see so much ads. If you charge someone for subscription how dare you greet them in such a manner by these constant ads. The only one benefiting is Google earning massive revenues from ads and subscription cost at the same time draining you of your precious time. If you believe me steer clear of this app otherwise give it a go you’ll have similar reactions.

    Love the accessibility and channel selection of YouTube TV. There is no “tv guide” showing upcoming shows more than an hour or two Joined when the price was $30 now it’s $50 and there’s still no Picture in Picture for iOS. Recently a notification keeps kicking app stating too many devices running at the same time when I know for a fact I’m using the only device. Very annoying! Every three months I have to sign in as my family member if they are in a different state at the time (weird)

  • Great option, needs better user interface

    By Lj7219532
    Love YouTube tv! Only the channels I want and for half the price. Only issue is that for Apple TV users it is extremely difficult to fast forward/rewind, and there’s no way to go up or down channel or go to previous channel except for going to the guide and then scrolling all of the way through. It’s dissuaded several people because it’s really hard to use.

    It freezes and shuts down randomly, can’t get through one episode of anything. Not to mention when it shuts down and we have to find our place again we have to watch 10 advertisements (not exaggerating) it’s insane. Definitely canceling. Just awful. The TV app is awful. Worst 50$ spent.

  • Not stable on TVOS

    By MTShipp
    Latest update to support TVOS has stability issues. Audio continues to play for 5-8 seconds when closed. Switching channels flashes previous channel for a second. The previous issue of forced commercials playing black screened forcing closing and reopening still happens. Launching has a still image of the last channel watched on screen for 2-3 seconds before the beach ball circles for 3-5 even with 400/20 Internet.

  • A big fat NOPE

    By Lost&Found78
    I signed up for YouTube Tv and am still on my free trial version, and frankly it’s not even worth it free. There’s no way in hell I’d pay $50 for this crappy service. Crazy long ads, it glitches in the middle of an episode and you can’t rewind it cause more ads. They have shows listed but you can’t watch them cause they aren’t available. Why even advertise the show if you can’t watch the episodes? Oh and I’m not talking new stuff, I’m talking last season type episodes, that should be more than available. So don’t waste your money, better off using Netflix, Hulu or Amazon. Canceled my subscription even before it actually started. Not wasting my money on this crap. As a side note I think all these “positive” reviews are paid for or planted, cause there’s absolutely NOTHING good about this service, and definitely nothing worth paying for. UTTER GARBAGE.

    This was just an all around disappointing experience. Too many issues with the app freezing, or just flat out not working. I’m better off upgrading my WiFi to have cable. There’s SO MUCH for them to fix. Using it has been non stop aggravation.

    Who would you subject people to commercials for a paid service? Take a page from Netflix on this. Every time you switch shows, commercial. Switch shows a couple times, 2 minutes of commercials. During the show, 2 minute commercials throughout. So many commercials!
