    Google cannnot and will not help you if issues. Now I am stuck frozen out for 15 days until subscription ends and then I can get help from google!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? GOOGLE: Put on the App Store description the message. “ DO NO SIGN UP THROUGH IN APP PURCHASE OR YOU ARE SCREWED” Turn off in app purchase and provide a link to sign up through the website. Stop the practice of forcing people to give a new address every 3 months if they are a nomad and only have 2 timeS you can do this. Many Nomads use this app and will never be back at the last address they used to access the app. YOU HAVE BECOME A CABLE COMPANY INSTEAD OF AN UNTETHERED OPTION FOR VIEWING CONTENT.

    YouTube TV was interesting because of useful channels for a reasonable fee unlike cable companies. But now it is trying to become yet another cable company by cramming useless channels and increasing fee...calcelling
  • YouTube TV becomes another cable

    Starting May 2019, YouTube TV becomes yet another cable company by adding more useless channels & increasing fee from $40 to $50...That’s whopping 25% increase! I’m cancelling

    Missing core iPad features like PIP, no HBO option, and a one size fits all package that includes channels people don’t want and didn’t ask for.

  • Headed in the wrong direction.

    By edk012
    I appreciate the addition of the new channels, but not the price increase. I cut the cord to try and save money over cable. Now I pay $75/mo for high speed internet and $45/mo for YouTube TV. Would really appreciate the option to select my channels at a per channel price or something like that. I don’t watch half the crap that is included. Also, needs offline...period. And there should be a way to only record a specific instance of a show that repeats. I don’t need every instance of ESPN SportsCenter that airs. Just once for the day is all.

  • Bad for Apple TV

    1
    By Hate Comcast
    The app is frustratingly awful. It’s consistently fuzzy or buffering. When I reached out to support regarding the issue they said ‘sorry for your trouble were working on it’. They purposely don’t have agreements about uptime and as a result, they don’t have any incentive to keep their service up. I’ve had issues with buffering or outage while watching sports at least 10 different times. They should take down this app.
  • Almost Real TV

    By Tryingtobepositive
    Scrolling banners are not smooth, the jump. Sound on “Live TV” is 2.0 stereo, makes watching sports just like I don’t have a $2000.00 sound system. Adding junk channels that I have no interest in WHILE raising prices without fixing sound. Time to change lead management. Google you could have a real winner here.
  • Very good overall

    4
    By Chris_Lakers
    Very good overall, but it would be nice to know which shows will turn into shows that require you to watch ads after a few hours (like CW and CBS shows). Maybe there could be a logo next to these shows to notify the user?
  • Recent Price Increases defeats the Purpose of cord Cutting

    2
    By HailstormX
    The service has been great. Pretty ticked that they raised the price and added garbage channels and forced the user to take them... $35 a month was a great price now $50... factor in internet cost and you might as well get cable again. They need to have a sports tier for $30 bucks. I could care less about discovery channels don’t raise my bill and say here are some great free channels. If anything work on getting nfl red zone.
  • Price hike

    By KutterCraig
    Stop increasing the price. Give us the options of different Chanel packages rather than a “one size fits all” plan for nearly double the price...

    This app is terrible. For almost 3 weeks, it hasn’t cast to chrome cast tv. Their support is also really bad. I keep asking and they just say the same thing over again. That a technician is trying to duplicate the issue and they will contact me but then they never contact me. Google owns YouTube AND chrome cast. And they can’t get them to work together. You get a hard Fail on this Google.

  • Pay $50 a month for advertising, no freaking way!

    If I have to pay $50 a month I expect zero advertisements! So I’m not even going to bother with this one.
  • The app is not fully optimized for new iPad Pro devices

    1
    By VicBeny
    Hello YouTube TV Team, please ask the development team to adjust the iOS app navigation buttons on the new iPad Pro devices. The texts under the navigation buttons are covered by the iOS swipe-up indicator and this design flaw is causing a poor visual and navigation experience. I have sent several emails to the YouTube TV Help but the problem hasn't been solved. YouTube TV subscribers expect a better device support but YouTube TV product team has failed to fully support the new iPad Pro devices.
  • Ads showing again after just watching

    By TTVdon'tForgrtAboutYT
    I’ve had YouTube TV for about 2 months now and most of the time when watching tv that’s been recorded it often makes me watch ads again right after I just watched them.
  • New pricing is terrible

    By nargan
    I will be deleting and unsubscribing. I don’t care about the new channels, and going from a grandfathered rate of $35/month to $50/month means the service isn’t worth it to me. See ya.

    Why is Apple charging $5 more per month than YouTube tv? Why would anyone pay this?
  • Too expensive now

    1
    By Bengaltigger
    I was putting up with the constant lags and the somewhat unintuitive interface because it was cheaper than cable. No appears they are going the same path as dish/cable buy trying to add every network that anyone asks for and raising their price to cover the cost. Hey youtube... There is a reason people left dish/cable... Because we don't want to spend $$$ for channels we don't watch.
  • No don’t waste your money

    Your better off getting Nextflix, this app give you lag and advertising same old YouTube.
  • Why more channels?

    3
    By Wrxrox
    Been using the app for about a year now. Not perfect but works well on phone, iPad and Xbox. Recently they mentioned adding more channels and a higher cost. I like what I get for $40 and not really interested in more channels being added, that I’m not all that interested, for $10 more monthly. I thought the idea was to move away from the cabletv way if doing things. Soon we’ll have 100+ channels costing us over $100 monthly. Once that occurs I’ll be on to the next best option.
  • It’s nothing more than Cable TV

    By It's TC, Everybody
    They claim it’s not, yet it’s just another monolithic corporation bundling up a bunch of crap and preying on the consumer. Though, did we really expect it to be anything different? Of course not, yet we hoped. Nice interface, for what it’s worth.
  • Over 50% price monthly price increase

    No thanks. Add 500 more channels if you want. Be just like cable. Nothing innovative about this Google.
  • Price Hike

    1
    By ASloan93
    Like everyone else, I’m very unhappy about the price hike. Especially since, of all the channels that came with the price hike, I’m interested in exactly 0 of them. In fact, now I have to go in and remove them from the channel listing or move them to the bottom of the channel list. We switched to this service specifically for a modern take on tv that didn’t come with arbitrary price hikes. I don’t know if we’ll switch to something else, but we’re considering it.

  • Another subscription failure

    By Dwdrmz
    This service came out and I was elated. Access local and cable content online for a very reasonable price. I’ve already gone through one set of price hikes but this latest one was the nail in the coffin. Adding 6 channels of content in April of ‘19 I don’t want or need and price gouging consumers an additional 37%!!?? Seriously incompetent as they don’t understand their users or the market. They claim to be the solution for cord cutters but they just continue the same bad practices that drive people away from cable tv. Thankfully they don’t have a contract. Google- either offered tiered pricing or a la carte and let users pick the channels they want for the money they are willing to spend instead of forcing content and rate hikes no one asked for. Needless to say I am cancelling this service.
  • They need channel options

    2
    By Thundershots
    Adding channels and raising the price automatically is not what I signed up for. They should offer the new channels to people who want them for an additional fee. I cancelled after this happened.
  • Used to be the Best, now it’s not

    1
    By dan7827
    YouTube TV used to be the best deal around and had a great channel line-up. But after a 43% price hike, going back on their grandfather promise, and adding a set of channels that several of the YouTube community didn’t want, the service has fallen to the same level as cable and satellite providers. At least wish DTVN you get HBO as part of the cost increase.
  • 6 account but only 3 streams?

  • Good service but need package options

    3
    By Loren K Richter
    The service is really good but the idea of leaving cable for better options at a lower price is slipping away very fast and will be no better than cable if this continues. I’m starting to look for other options. If you’re like me and don’t need large packages of networks at a high monthly subscription prices then you’re probably upset like myself who got more networks forced upon them at a big price hike. I’d like to see package choices or even better the ability to select per network. Why pay money for networks that you could care less about. How about letting the consumer choose. When you’re looking to cut costs, getting a surprise increase in services and price is very disappointing from a service provider you once really liked.
  • Love the app but...

    By davidlaplace
    The app and the service is great. Very user friendly. However, I will be canceling due to the new increase. From $35 to $50. No not worth that
  • Great app but dismal pricing decisions

    1
    By OnTheEast
    Thought I’d found the ideal streaming app for a cord-cutter. Local and sports my biggest use. And a reasonable price. But YouTube TV just announced a 25 to 30% price increase that you must accept. Their reason? They added more channels. But ones I never used and don’t want. Now this app is mimicking the cable companies, creating mandatory expensive bundles full of unwanted content. Not for me, sadly, any longer.
  • Fantastic UI - Price hikes, not so much!

    1
    By Iamhawk50
    YouTube TV is an incredible value at $35/mo. With everything you get and the versatility of available devices is great. However, to up it $15/mo, $20 if you bill through the App store for a handful of other channels (which I've clearly lived without) yeah - no thanks. May as well go back to cable.
  • Persistent bug

    2
    By kalopqui
    I watch YoutubeTV on an Ipad. There is a persistent problem when I am watching a show that is being recorded. Unexpectedly, the screen goes back to the start of the show or to a different previously recorded show. This happens many times during the show I am trying to watch. I have reported this problem to YoutubeTV many times but they seem to be unable or unwilling to solve the problem. Also the monthly rate has been raised by more than $10 despite my many complaints about the quality of the service. Other than that, everything else is fine.

    Already another price increase. People switched to streaming because cable was expensive, now streaming is even more expensive. Once you calculate the internet you pay for. App deleted.

    I cut out my cable Tv due to never ending price increases and now your increasing the cost for extra channels that I have no interest in, not happy. I guess I need to start researching for something better :(

    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!!!! iOS version of the app for iPhones needs to all 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 Does not AirPlay properly to an AppleTV. When the phone locks, the stream stops. You need to fix this! Sometimes the AppleTV app doesn’t work due to an outage on your end and the iPhone still does for some reason, so at those times it would be nice to AirPlay if needed. Also, AirPlaying to someone else’s AppleTV would be another scenario where this is usable and needs to be fixed to work with the phone screen locked or while doing something else in the background. (This is a defect that happens if you are AirPlaying and change quality of the stream and if it’s not successful, the playback crashes and says to “Tap to retry.” When you do that, AirPlaying the retried stream will stop when you lock the phone. Only way around this is to quit app entirely and start it again. Then find a stream, change quality to 1080p AND THEN AirPlay it. At this point, you can successfully lock the screen or use another app and the AirPlay playback to the AppleTV will not stop.)

  • Good, not close to perfect yet

    By Fuddy Duddy Daddy
    After 10 months, here is my take: Channel package is just about perfect for our needs. Price vs. channels seems reasonable, much less $ than we paid Comcast. Cloud DVR is terrific and simple. Performance of the YouTube tv app on iOS devices is fine, rarely any issue. Performance using airplay from older Apple TV and a Comcast “normal” speed web (50 mbps) connection was terrible. Video resolution would degrade, audio and video out of synch, video would stop. Recently upgraded Apple TV, which made a big difference, but did not fully fix performance. The awesome thing is the onboard YouTube TV app on the Apple TV. Huge benefit with that. We then upgraded to 200 Mbps Frontier fios internet. The combination of much faster net speed and the new Apple TV is nearly perfect, hardly ever have performance issues. Google just raised price to $50 from $40 and added some channels, most of which we don’t need. No plans to seek a replacement yet, but will keep an eye open for alternatives as the streaming offerings improve. The nice thing is no contract and easy to switch when we see a better offering. No regrets in getting rid of cable. It was joyful.
