  • Still black screen

    By MTShipp
    Still get black screen for minutes during forced commercial playback. They can’t fix it.
  • Please improve your sport package

    By usama salem 19907863
    Overall I’m having a good experience with YouTube tv service. But, I’m a sports guy and to be more specific big soccer and fubo has a really great deal by adding the Bein sport package. So please add the Bein sport package to the standard subscription and this service would be really perfect.
  • Stasia

    By Graceseuss
    Customer Service is absolutely amazing. And that makes all the difference & easily sets you apart from others! Thanks, Bella G., for the help today!
  • Horrible

    By Mojo Jen
    Really, really awful. Loaded with commercials that freeze constantly. No customer service number or human to actually talk too. I actually had a shoe that froze, and then changed to a completely different show. The worst.
  • Background audio

    By mattnorton2u
    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.
  • All about ads

    By Slimpapapap
    Have to watch two sets of ads because after watching a set the show or movie won’t continue and starting from where you did in the beginning.
  • YouTube tv

    By LeAnna Porter
    Won’t let me sign in. Keeps telling me I’m not a member. I have the app and can watch it on regular tv, but not phone. Have to go through regular YouTube.
  • A bit disappointing

    By so many apps... so little time
    The service is a good idea, but the experience of using it has not been smooth. The interface is cumbersome and sometimes buggy. Shows you’ve paused, un-pause themselves. Previews don’t always match the show you’re watching. Or the app(s) just crash repeatedly. And you may get locked out of content you should have access to when traveling. Needs significant improvement.
  • No ESPN

    By SnowGoose39
    70 Channels, but no ESPN.
  • Sport review

    By Dvdgard
    Issue is that when opening a game already being played, from the beginning, there seems to be a bug that fails to connect correctly through Apple TV and then connects with the game is real-time. Completely ruining the point of being able to start the game from the beginning. And it’s almost twice as expensive per month for no change in quality, availability or features. When I find a replacement, I won’t hesitate to jump ship. Update - another game ruined because of bugs watching a game in progress but not in Live mode.
  • Good but one major flaw

    By mrsulli
    The app has a lot to offer as far as shows and movies go but my biggest issue is 8 times out of 10 when I am part way through watching something it will stop on an ad with a black loading screen and no matter what I try I cannot continue to watch what I was watching
  • Enjoying it!

    By Most decorated
    Love everything about this subscription! One thing, please add timeline in the live section. I would like to know what’s on next!
  • Could be even better with more channels

    By Alkimar
    Not recommend for Soccer Fanatics nor Other Sports Enthusiasts (I’m crazy for soccer) Missing several channels especially those who like Spanish programming (TUDN,BeIN Sport {English and Spanish},ESPN Deportes,Fox Deportes,Galavision,Univision But Yet not ONE service has shown to be perfect I give 4 stars for TV shows 2.5 Stars for Sports Content 5 stars for Format
  • Don’t Use YoutubeTV if You Ever Plan to Move

    By kev038438
    I moved a few months ago and today I tried to open my YouTubeTV App to watch a game. The App said that I had limited access until I signed in while in my “home area” (where I no longer live). I called YouTubeTV and they said that you need to sign into your home area every 90 days. I explained that my home area changed and I wasn’t going to be in my original home area anytime soon so they said there was nothing they could do and they offered to cancel my service. I didn’t plan to cancel my service, but given the fact that they gave me no other options I ended up canceling my service.
  • Five PLUS Stars

    By schmooey55
    I have had youtube tv for over 18 months, using it on 3 tv’s with Roku, an iPad (4), and iPhone 8. Both the video and audio quality are excellent on all devices. The unlimited cloud dvr, and availability of movies and tv shows are great. I have had only one issue, but it was quickly resolved by deleting the channel on Roku, then reinstalling it. By cutting the satellite cable, I’m saving $210/month and couldn’t be happier!
  • Picture in Picture please!

    By jtaylor2019
    I get a nice little picture in picture box to continue watching tv on my cheap android phone as I check emails and stuff. However, on my iPad the app closes, not letting me continue watching. No automatic or button for picture in picture. Please make it happen....
  • Need to fix the cnn/espn

    By brosepd
    If you’ve recorded a show on cnn, or espn be prepared to kiss it goodbye . It’s likely to be written over and lost if there is breaking news when a show is scheduled to re air. YouTube needs to allow an option to avoid having shows be overwritten and lost once the are in the library .
  • Absolutely garbage

    By SPSponger2
    I dropped cable and TiVo for YouTube TV and couldn’t regret it more. The ability to buffer and then skip commercials during live TV is nonexistent (and yes I pay $55/month or whatever this worthless service costs). Additionally, there are tons of pre-recorded shows that also force me to watch commercials!!!! What in the hell am I paying for if I’m still forced to suffer with the limitations people get from the free app? I’m going back to cable (sadly) and TiVo. This is by far my biggest disappointment with a Google service... #Garbage. Don’t give this app a dime.
  • Need more channels!

    By Gri84
    The service overall is great! I love that it lets you choose the 1080p quality for the picture. It works great! But it just needs more channels like Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) , and all of the Nickelodeon networks for us teens and the little kids to watch besides just Disney Channel!
  • I’m disappointed

    By shylilboy084
    I had used YouTube Tv several months ago and I was impressed. I decided to give several other services a try before making a final decision. I had originally planned to make YouTube Tv my choice. However, after coming back to it after these few months I’m disappointed on how it has changed. The amount of adds involved are a bit overwhelming compared to some of the other services I’ve tried. I’m sorry to say I’m going to used a different services that cost about the same.
  • Add darkmode and phone connect feature

    By ReviewerPerson198
    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!!!!
  • Will not work if traveling outside USA

    By joeR6
    Great service except for the fact that it will not work and you cannot get access to your library if you are traveling outside the USA. If Netflix and Amazon prime can work internationally I'd hope YOUTUBE TV would too. Also- you can't manually record a show or extend recording time. For example if a football game goes past it's scheduled recording time per the network (which it usually always does) you won't record the end of the game!
  • stop working

    By HerbS2urnerves
    every channel keeps freezing while the audio keeps going. this is not good quality service. And it does this outtage bs only on the weekend. WHEN IT REALLY MATTERS. if by next weekend u dont get ur bleep together i am cancelling the service.
  • 1/2 star Scam..

    By galleria photo studio
    Expensive and channel lineup is horrible. DVR is just a scam they will put on demand shows and call it DVR. They think we don’t know this unfortunately this is a scam by their parent company google. They claim they dvr to the cloud which is just a bunch of a great scammmm. Don’t waste your time and money there are many other options. Find a company with ethics research....
  • Beware it’s run by Google👎🏽AWFUL

    By Deafgirlnamiko
    TL;DR they r liars, thieves and morons. Didn’t have any major problems with them before. They did recently raise their already high prices to even higher which made me seriously question whether they were worth keeping when they’re so overpriced. Was scouting around for a different service to use. The true problem came when i moved and needed to update my address on my account(for some odd reason it doesnt let u do this urself). I contacted their support and they said they couldn’t do that and that i needed to cancel and resubscribe. That sounded very fishy but this is inept google we’re talking about so i canceled my sub. Later in week i restarted my sub thru itunes. What the support jerks(purposely) didn’t tell me, and i later found out only when i went to their website, was that “new” members can’t subscribe to youtubetv thru itunes after June. So i ended up with an “active” sub and also being charged for that sub but not actually being able to use the apps and watch anything. When i contacted youtubetv support again to straighten this out they didn’t have any fix for this except to tell me that i can’t subscribe thru itune(duh i already found that out no thanks to u idiots). I’d had enough of their deceptive and inept practices by then and said i would cancel the youtubetv itunes sub and for them to refund me. Of course to top off this aggravating experience they said they couldn’t refund me. I had to go to itunes support and submit a request for refund which will take several days.
  • Fast Forward/Rewind Inconsistancies

    By PresidentWill
    Either let me or don’t let me fast forward through commercials. I’ll start watching something I’ve DVR’ed on ESPN and for half the program I can fast forward through the blank ESPN screen “commercials” and then halfway through it won’t let me skip the inserted ads. Make it one way or the other but it’s infuriating to have un-skippable ads show up midway through a program you’re trying to watch in a quick session.
  • Badly needs Picture in picture support!

    By Hokkdawg
    Great service, good app, but really needs PiP support. Come on, YTTV. Seriously.
  • Mediocre

    By dawnkiyoko
    Apple TV 4K There is something wonky with the app. It frequently seems to fall off my network connection. All my other apps (Netflix, amazon prime, Hulu) continue to stream perfectly fine so I know my network is working fine. I have to restart my Apple TV every time YouTube tv decides to quit working which is hella annoying and I would kill the subscription but Hulu doesn’t have a better offer yet. I also make sure to report the issues through the app every time but they don’t really seem to care.
  • The price has been inching up and now no longer worth it

    By Bobbu
    The app is nice, and it does a good job on all devices, but we mainly watch via Apple TV app, which I find we System>Restart several days a week, aminly becuase Youtube TV seems slowed or even hung. Given that, and the fact that the price is now nearing $60/month vs the original $40/month when we started using it, we will once again look to a different provider to see if we can't get the one or two cable-esque channels (e.g., CNN) we can't seem to do without.
  • Terrible functionality on Apple TV app

    By Crathers
    The functionality especially the fast forward and rewind mechanisms are absolutely unusable on the Apple TV version. Lost a costumer here.
  • Home Run

    By Bobby Latino
    They really nailed this. I can’t think of anything I don’t like about it (other than recordings expiring, but hats policy and not the app). I find myself watching/listening to about 5x the TV I used to bc it’s so easy and convenient and so much great content
  • Crashing

    By MegWally
    The ads during on demand shows are causing it to crash. Very annoying! Way too many ads!
  • I love YouTube TV but now 4 stars

    By Ethman1
    Ok I love YouTube TV I’d always give it 5 stars but now it’s so easy to stop recording show so now 4 stars
  • Needs work / Please fix

    By Prolificchild1
    This is happening a lot now..... every time I’m watching a program after 7 ads, it won’t go back into the program, instead I get a black screen. I have to log out and log back in, only to have to watch all 7 ads again before my program comes on again. Sometimes the program won’t start again, and I’m forced to reload the app once more, only to have to watch all the ads once again. It is incredibly frustrating. Also it has stopped recording new episodes of some of my shows. Not sure this is worth it anymore. It feels like I bought an expensive race car with 3 tires that overheats.
  • Location privacy invasion

    By UcipianBeast
    I don’t want to let you know my location just to watch tv
  • I love it!

    By Editnickname!
    I think this is the best idea ever! Thank you You Tube! Bye bye corporate crap cable bye bye to the ugly dumb dish!

    By Werewerewere
    This has 2 mins worth of ads at several intervals throughout a 40 min episode. The ads are crazy and I am looking into switching to something not as annoying. Ads are fine, but not when at this point I’m saying the lines with the actors.
  • Looking for fairness!

    By babyport
    Apple vs. Google not fair that YouTubeTV went up 15.00 all because of Apple’s Extra charges etc. not fair for Apple TV devices. Hope that Apples new TV service which launches this fall is better than YouTubeTV!
  • Restarts Show on IPad

    By Moester OC
    90% of the time that I watch a show on my iPad it automatically restarts the show when I get 3/4 of the way through it. There is no way to get back to where you were. I called over a year ago about this problem and then a few months ago and again now. They act like they have never heard of this which is BS since I know others who have called, too. I won’t recommend to anyone trying to cut the cable cord.
  • Was not sure...

    By jnellybags
    Ask me a year ago, I would’ve sworn up and down that this was the greatest streaming service, DVR and cable replacement. It still is great in that regard, the record option is limitless. However...they recently upped the price by a whopping $15, (almost half of what it previously was) and now there are SO many ads. It feels like every 3 minutes sometimes. (Yes, I know it’s because it’s the “on demand” recording, but if we’re paying this much, we should be able to fast forward through the ads.) Honestly, I’m thinking of switching to Hulu Live...
  • I can’t believe I’m paying for all these ads

    By Emediex
    The number and length of ads in this app is ridiculous. Note to advertisers: I will not spend a single penny with any of you because you disrespect my time and my privacy. You think you know something about my personal medical history so you send ads for a specific condition that one of my meds causes? Guess what? I don’t take that med precisely because it causes that condition. Big pharma is just like trump. They create the condition and then sell you a solution. Ridiculous.
  • not what i thought was going to happen

    By MsPrettyPerfect
    i have logged in to YouTube TV and it said that i wasn’t a member so i had to sigh out and do it all over again. and every tiMe i did it would say the same thing. i just wanted to watch some shows not give a bad review.
  • Not fair

    By Angry pre-teen
    Srsly this app must Staley have some problems or you guys got the age wrong anybody should be able to use this app not 17 year olds and older srsly!!!👎😡😤😠🤬
  • Pros and Cons

    By cmm472
    You Tube TV is probably the best live TV streaming service available currently. I’ve used Sling and Hulu Live and this is the best channel line up, interface and on demand library of anything I’ve tried, the DVR is awesome. The price of all the streaming services has increased quite a bit recently so I don’t know how long I’ll be able to afford it, this is even more expensive than cable now and of course we have to tolerate the ads. Some of the AMC content is behind a paywall, which is ridiculous for what we are being charged. Regardless, Google did their homework and got it right. I wish we could get a live PBS stream and a true a la carte service to be able to pick and pay for only the channels we want or need.
  • Shouldn’t have to go through that for $50/mo

    By Reiskameraad
    Hey YouTube TV people! If I start a show on my iPad and watch two commercials before the show starts, WHY can’t I just pick up where I left off when I switch to casting? Why am I force fed two more commercials all over again??? All these unskippable ads are killing my desire to binge watch! And the latest update has taken away my lock screen features! Plus! When I accidentally touched another show in the middle of watching a program it should have been EASY to just go back and pick up where I left off. But instead I had to sit through a couple commercials as well as the very beginning of the show BEFORE I could fast forward to where I had left off. And when I got to where I thought I had left off and let go of the forward slider, I had to wait through ANOTHER 6 commercials before I could resume watching. This is entirely unacceptable! And at $600 a year I *should* be able to skip over all those COMMERCIALS all together, and bookmark where I left off when switching from casting to watching!!! You seriously have me wanting to just give up on this app.
  • Great TV service

    By conceredcustomer27
    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!!
  • Pretty Good; Needs Some Fixes

    By Gygvyvygvgyvg
    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

    By RickyC112
    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

    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.
