  • Commercials after commercials

    By mmmmmandu
    Paid $40 to watch commercials. I was watching a 40 minute show (not live tv) and it had 5 commercials breaks with 5 commercials per break.. a total of 25 commercials!!!! you cant skip any of them either.. ridiculous!! especially when you’re paying so much! cancelled my subscription right away. will not be returning.
  • Not quite there yet

    By so many apps... so little time
    The world of TV needs a good online option, but this isn’t it. It sort of works but you’ll need patience. Getting the episodes you want to watch when you want to watch them is inconsistent and frustrating. Sometimes it’s delayed by hours, sometimes it never shows up. It would also be better if you didn’t force you to use your Google account. There are several hidden limitations (especially related to sharing with family) if you’ve used Google for other services. It’s positively maddening. If my only choices are paying cable/dish rates or using this service then I may have to stop watching TV completely.
  • I really want to like it.

    By Zion Z
    I really want to like it more. I am not a big TV watcher as it is but I have my binge moments and do enjoy the DVR feature that is more than enough for me to always find something to watch. My problems with this app compare to other streaming apps I’ve had is that the video freezes up too much or the sound cuts out. Never had these problems on Directv now or Hulu so I don’t feel it has anything to do with my connection. The app is not very stable and I have yet to see any improvements that will keep me as a long term customer. The DVR is unlimited and stores shows for nine months making the DVR feature the winner choice for me
  • It said it was free

    By Gamer Nick123
    When it said it was free I got it but then when I installed it it said i ad to pat $49.99 a month
  • Spanish sports channels

    By lmbooboi
    Everything is great but a must needed if that Mexican Soccer league other than that everything else is great!!
  • Hallmark

    By Julie ruth 2
    The only thing that could improve this app is Hallmark Channel
  • Payment info

    By spallen10
    This is feedback to the developers, please add the ability to change/add payment info from the app/phone
  • All I need

    By Jim_the_pilot
    Watch YouTube tv via roku and internet is FIOS. Added Stars as well. Really like the DVR unlimited storage ability and the feel of changing channels is similar to the old cable TV
  • Early adopter and still no regrets

    By M. Pruitt
    Opted in within the first month that it launched in my area after a 15 year love/hate with a satellite provider. Best skinny bundle out there, including my local networks.
  • Needs some work

    By Dave Lafleur
    The app works as it should most of the time but it does glitch back to previous shows quite a bit. Example, I’ll be watching a news channel and it will randomly go back to a spot on the previous broadcast and not let me watch the current show. When this happens it continually bounces back to the same spot of the previous show no matter what I try to do.
  • Keeps jumping back three hours!

    By zugvogel71
    I was happy at first, it seemed to work fine. But for a few days now it has become a complete joke. I keep watching one news channel during the morning, close to live or an hour or so behind live broadcast. Then all of a sudden the player jumps to another show about 3 or 4 hours earlier in the day on the same channel. This happens over and over and over and over..... if this continues I‘ll have to say bye bye UPDATE: it seems it jump back to an earlier time on the same channel once the commercials in the currently running show start. So given that Commercials run all the time - this is now unwatchable. GOOGLE - Please Fix This!
  • Great UX and UI

    By Jolttim
    Beyond the design you get to dvr espn and have local channels
  • Missing Episodes

    By zbest15
    I absolutely love YouTube TV, and I completely understand that there pretty much has to be commercials. However, I realized recently after taking a few weeks off of tv that an entire chunk of a show I recorded is gone. I’m missing 5 episodes in the middle of the season (which I have been recording for the entire season). I’m not happy about the missing episodes, but I’m very happy with everything else!
  • Great

    By Krazie Queen
    I LOVE THIS APP FOUND MOSTLY ALL THE MOVIES AND SHOWS I LOVE ! I have it downloaded in my Roku also it’s amazing !
  • Solid

    By kenngunn
    Solid app works well, always!
  • YouTube TV vs. Sling

    By Henry3rd
    I started with Sling. The two tiers of Sling are a gimmick. I won’t go into it, but you are forced to take both tiers, and the sports package is extra. Sling doesn’t carry local channels. Plus, it has limited cloud storage, and they charge for it. You also have to pay for CBS, and it’s not live. There were college football games I missed because of that. YouTube includes local channels, sports, all the major networks, and had unlimited cloud storage at no charge. Not only is YouTube about $25/month cheaper, if it goes down you are given a week free simply my emailing customer service. Also, the app will allow you set up recordings if you’re away from your TV. YouTube TV is far superior to Sling.
  • Left out

    By Dreamy68
    I’m feeling kind of left out here. I’m on a strict income, and canceled my local cable company just to pay for internet. I was hoping to try this, but 40.00 a month is not great for someone like me that is living on social security. My family isn’t interested in using the family sharing, but even that is still expensive. I don’t watch sports. But it looks great for those here that can use it. All the best
  • Happy

    By bonnlou
    I’m thoroughly enjoying this app. Customer service is good and very responsive. I would like HGTV. Overall the best service and cost. Thank you.
  • Movie recordings are defective

    By applecustomer1234xyz
    February 11, 2019 update Amazon and Netflix work. YouTube TV does not. Keep getting “playback error“ Whatever that is. It says to “report this ID“ The space for the ID supposed to be is blank. Good work google *** For instance the last 20 minutes of the movie Trance have gaps and skips like a broken DVD. If you’re thinking of cutting the cord, I would be careful about using YouTube TV.
  • More Spanish channels

    By LegendaryMexican
    Please add more Spanish channels. There are over 50 million Hispanics living in the US, and yet YouTube tv has very few Spanish channels. Add Univision, unimas, galavision, etc... on a national level
  • Love the app

    By WisperISP
    Still kind of clunky in some areas of the interface, but love the Channels.
  • General

    By Sam Bash
    Everything looks fine. But never mentioned how much it cost after the free trial
  • DVR glitches

    By Buikes
    So far I have been pretty happy with this service. The major problem I have is when I’m watching a DVR show, about 3/4 through the show starts over, but the sound continues with the last 1/4. There’s no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. I also would love if PBS was an offered channel.
  • Mc

    By mc:;
    Everyone should have YouTV it is the best view TV I have ever seen.
  • A joke sometimes

    By Chelsealynn7
    Loved it at first but how much buffering can u take. I just updated it and 10 min later I’m looking at it buffer. That is on my phone On my Xbox- it just stops working 2-3 times a night and goes back to the home screen LOVE THAT IM PAYING FOR SOMETHING THAT ONLY WORKES HALF THE TIME After hockey is done I’ll find something else
  • As I get used to it there are some issues

    By Peeps210
    As other reviews have said the commercials get longer and longer. Also, no way to fast forward easily. I also wish I could see that was coming on later, like a guide that you can look forward. The service is over all pretty good, just some small inconveniences in the grand scheme.
  • No regrets

    By Sheiglah
    Switched about 1 year ago and it is terrific. The only problem I have is that I need to clear out from memory each time to bring up a new program on my iPad. Not an issue on Apple TV version. Yes, there are some features I would like such as being able to specify which channel to record on so I won't get all the old reruns recorded. But given the savings still worth five stars
  • Bad

    By Asapvince87
    I want to cancel this for sure, since I deleted the app
  • You Tube TV is great.

    By Smittyll
    I’ve had You Tube TV for about two months now and I really like it. What I like most is how you store favorite movies and TV shows in the Library. Please try I know you will like it.
  • Not happy

    By flakye
    There is so much buffering its unbelievable. And the issue is not with my internet connection. I only experience this buffering issue on youtubetv. I can’t enjoy any programs.
  • Nice App

    By MobileStyle
    But no NFL Network. I don’t understand why they don’t have the NFL network.
  • Too much adverts discourage watching

    By Sediujay
    I really support the review above when we paid a lot and you didn’t allow us to enjoy the programs because of advert It’s better you make adjustment on these adverts because it’s too much and it frustrating Particularly when am watching wwe wrestling u will just block it with adverts and you will not show the missing part that we didn’t see The adverts which you can do after each I belief you can really amends it
  • Has potential but video degradation is bad

    By JeromyH
    I currently use the Google Fiber 1G service and actively monitor my internet speeds. I consistently sit around 300-400 Mbps during normal usage and I find that my Youtube TV stream either buffers or degrades the quality a lot. I am hopeful that this is just a growing pain which will be resolved sooner rather than later. But if this continues long term I don’t think it is a viable replacement for cable.
  • Needs improvement

    By Ukchaaaa
    Firstly it is very reasonably priced which is a big plus. I watch a lot of sports and find rewinding the play is very hit and miss .The inability to clear recorded history should be corrected.Not being able for eg to record a whole season of Formula 1 racing I still have to select individual races at different venues which are sometimes on different channels. Viewing more than what the next show after the present hour on the channel guide would be nice in planning an evening in.
  • Great option over cable or satellite TV!

    By Ashley Hudson105
    I used to be a Sling subscriber but YouTube TV has them beat hands down. Easy to navigate, great screen options and local TV stations. What more can I say? It’s awesome if you’re not a TV addict. Otherwise go for the much more expensive satellite or cable.
  • Missing Discovery Network Channels

    By mecarpenteraz
    The service works fine and I like the user interface. However, I am going to opt with a service that has more of the channels I watch. Discovery, TLC, A&E, and ID are not on the service.
  • This is the future.

    By Mr. Muzik
    I love this app. I have my TV with me wherever I go which has been a lifesaver with college sports. Where else are you going to find cable and a DVR for this price? It isn't the greatest for kids' option, but I have other streaming apps that take care of that. Just a really solid app that is really easy to and convenient.
  • Misleading

    By KupunaKane
    Supposed to be trial offer, responded to advertisement for $11.99. Set up and account charged $29.99 and mention of trial. Canceling immediately.
  • Great

    By glynnrabun
    Better than satellite
  • Good but is it worth it?

    By Kent Coleman
    YouTube TV can be an easy yes or a difficult no depending on what you’re use to getting out of your television. I think if you’re a big sports fan and are wanting to cut the cord than you should definitely get it. But how does it appeal to people less interested in sports? It does that by offering slightly more content than Netflix for 4x the price. The main difference is you have DVR and can watch shows live but I have a hard time feeling like the service is worth it. Better than satellite and cable? Definitely. Better than paying for Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime (which would be less $ than YouTube tv); I’m not sure it is.
  • Really Great

    By Locoaztec
    This app is great for those on the go and travel a lot. Being a sports guy it is nice to watch the games and then pause them if you get busy. Then be able to watch them from where you left off. Very user friendly. Thanks YouTube TV
  • Not worth $5.00 let alone $40 a month!

    By supershows
    Commercial city. Very limited movies. Advises you to set your pretend DVR.
  • Smokes The Rest

    By Elbee1955
    After having tried them all, cable, going off grid with hdtv antenna, Sling Box etc., I thought I’d give YouTube TV a try. Unlimited DVR, a great selection of channels and a greater sense of viewing freedom has given me renewed hope in viewing choices. Keep it up YouTube TV, we are highly satisfied.
  • Controls for Apple TV are awful.

    By Nddiesel9
    I love it for my phone and computer but it’s very hard to use on my Apple TV. Fast forwarding through commercials is such a pain and not intuitive at all. Please fix the remote so it’s easier to pause, rewind and fast forward. Also make it easier to get rid of the progress bar as well.
  • Lies

    By darquanda
    I downloaded this to try it since I haven’t have TV for about a year. And I’m in the market for some tv. Tell why it tried to charge me $39.99 right away when it said free for a month. Tell me why. K bye. Delete!
  • Commercials are so loud

    By Only one complaint....
    Watching a drama or comedy- then BOOM HOLY BALLS LOUD COMMERCIAL. LOUD NOISES EVERYWHERE!!! Then tv show comes back on. After we’ve turned the volume way down, now way back up, then BOOM ANOTHER LOUD COMMERCIAL. “A million little things” new show on ABC. Watch it on YouTubeTV. Just be ware, the commercials will make your neighbors think you’re having a kegger.
  • User Interface stuck in the early 2000’s

    By 9th-Try
    Particularly wrt Apple TV. Once a program is selected and streaming, five stars. Finally they’ve fixed their server overload issues.
  • Love it!

    By Robert mccay
    Ive tried most of the live TV streaming apps but this one is the best hands down
  • Great concept, not so great execution.

    By SOTY10
    I love YouTube TV. I think it’s great! I don’t love the app. For some reason the app won’t play full episodes of shows and started them over about halfway through. I don’t have this issue on my TV or PC, only on the app :/
