  • YouTube TV has been charging me for a service I don’t have

    I was notified that my membership expired 4/12/20. However they have been billing my credit card ever since. No live help available (understandable, Covid 19) online help it’s nonexistent and horrible.
  • Buggy, Laggy, Non-customizable, Poor customer service

    1
    By NJacuguy
    Pros: channel lineup, not cheap but a bit cheaper than competitors Cons: EXTREMELY BUGGY (and bugs only *increased* as time went on, laggy, cant customize anything, contacted customer service once and they were at best dismissive then disconnected the chat (give them points for later adding 10 free days though)
  • Amazing app with mediocre content

    2
    By themirror
    I lowered my ranking because YTTV is not supporting Apple IOS now? Too bad we can't get Sundance channel or something interesting. Regular tv and it's reality TV is kind of boring. The app is unbelievably amazing. The design team made "art".... Great UX!
  • Quality Stream, Poor Interface and Canceling Nightmare

    1
    By Kcook143
    The streams are quality, even live. The recordings work well enough. The interface is convoluted and browsing channels or networks is a chore. Doesn’t have any flow when looking for shows or browsing. The main reason I give this 1/5 stars is because of how difficult it is to cancel your subscription. No apps work, they all direct you to go to the website. When I tried, the website kept looping me back to an error screen or trying to go to YouTube’s website. I had to access my initial subscription email to finally view the “membership” tab and see the option to unsubscribe. I also tried accessing the website from my laptop and experienced similar issues. If someone wants to cancel a subscription (that’s advertised as “cancel anytime”), don’t make it so difficult to cancel. I might have renewed my subscription when sports comes back, but I’ll never give youtube money again.
  • Why the ads and Cancelled my free trial

    2
    By Shin K.
    Downloaded and tried it out. It has a lot of ads for a service that charges a premium amount. I cancelled my free trial 30 minutes in and they cancelled my free trial access even though I’m supposed to get 2 days free. Not cool.
  • Very good almost great

    By Edrd001
    I’m very happy with the service and app. But there are a few features that could be implemented to make the experience great. One of them is an easier way to skip the ads. Another way would be to enable the app to run in the background when the app is minimized or when the phone is locked, like the regular YouTube app. Sometimes all I want to do is to listen to the news while walking my dog.
  • Way too buggy and support is a joke.

    By stmlb4
    The playback of recordings is terrible, the video will suddenly jump back to the beginning of the recording while the audio continues on at the correct place. Anytime I criticize YouTube TV and their lack of worthwhile support, I am told to keep the conversation professional. Last time I checked, I don’t work for them, if I were using foul language to them I could understand the request. They need to realize that criticism is not unprofessional or uncivil, it simply indicates that I’m not happy with what I’m paying for.

  • Paying too much to still have commercials

    What’s the point of paying 50$ and still get commercials, I’ll just stick to regular cable and save my money -.-

    By The.1.2.N.V.
    Okay, so this is what works for me and my household. I am paying $125/month (this does not include TNT or TBS) for cable and ultimately I watch one local channel and my kids watch DPlus / NFlix / Starz / and dad watches the news. Finally taking advantage of the 5 day trial and I can tell you, I’ll be cutting cable. I’m fortunate enough to have FiberOptic internet and with the above apps and now YouTube TV, I’m saving quite a bit. Appreciate ya!
  • $50 is Expensive SHB $30/$35/month.

    By Madhu Aryal
    It’s a good service but expensive. Wish it was $30/month or $35 max. I would love it and bring more friends as they have the same opinion!

    A few updates a week and still no picture in picture, instead we get a bloated app loaded with ads? It's only a matter if time before you lose customers for being greedy. Update 5/25/2020 - Daily updates and the app still runs like Windows 95, still no pip. Why an update daily when there are no noticeable changes?
  • Expensive

    By Aye Q
    All I know is on Apple TV it runs terribly. The app overall is Clunky fast forwarding and rewinding is a pain in the neck. So if any show I want to watch on YouTube TV is on any other streaming platforms I would definitely watch it there.
  • the ui needs to be revamped

    By Jfufifu
    the ui on this app is frankly disappointing. i pay 40$ a month for a disappointing app with many different issues that need to be resolved. please fix this app and it’s issues
  • Restarts show 40mins in...

    By BertaBopeep
    Just downloaded this app on my iPad. It is very frustrating to have to shut it all down and relaunch the episode for it to be back up where I was when it restarted. Please update and release a fixed version. I saw a review from a Year ago (!!) that they were experiencing the same issue. Come on....😐

    I am very disappointed that advertisement/commercials run disruptively. $50 a month cable with recording is a better option.
  • Beyond buggy, cancelling

    By Itfarmer
    Stream from a google device to google manufactured Chromecast and constantly lose audio. One show to the next, skipping, pausing, etc all cause chromecast to lose all audio. It seems that every product manufactured by google isn’t compatible with any other google products.
  • I love YouTube TV, but...

    4
    By anonymous_0.24
    It’s true that the app has been crashing on me lately. I couldn’t get through a three hour movie without having to restart the app several times. In addition, the time stamp for a title keeps changing. I’m supposed to be watching a three hour film, then all of a sudden, the title has a four hour time stamp. Gotta fix this right away. Sooner or later, there might be a price hike. How do you think customers would feel then?
  • Not You Tube TV app Fault

    By ck1sgirl93
    If you are getting a message....No longer sharing with you and go to the App Store to purchase the app. Than it’s another issue not related to this specific app. People are reporting this same issue with other apps, like Facebook. I am having the same issue with my FB app and now this app. With FB, I was able to delete the app and re-install it to get it to work. I’m in the process of doing the same thing with this app.
  • App is far too buggy

    3
    By Toonjunkie
    The price and channel selection is great, as well as the easy-to-understand UI. However, the app behavior on iPad Pro is horrendously buggy — almost maddening. I’m constantly suffering from the following: * sporadic “rewind” — the video suddenly reverts to a previous time mark without the audio track, so everything is out of sync. * random crashes — the app simply disappears (presumably from a crash) * Unable to resume — if I put iPadOS to sleep (close magic keyboard or hit the power button) while playing a video, when I wake the iPad later on the app is unable to resume playing where i left off. I see the “spinner” continually looking like it’s trying to load but it never does. I have to back out of the video and get back to the library, and select it to play. * inconsistent progress saves — sometimes when resuming a video it doesn’t resume where i left off — it’ll start 10 minutes or so previous.

    I don’t need YouTubeTV. I tried a free trial and never even hardly tested or used the app. Now I’m being charged $50 for something I will never use.
  • I canceled

    By Megansv
    I’m paying every month and yet there’s ads on everything I watch. I get if it was on YouTube since it’s free but YouTube tv is something that I’m paying for and I don’t want to watch anything with ads. Everything should be ad free. I’m still with AT&T TV. Thank you next
  • Awful saved playback

    1
    By Sorry Ryan Reynolds!
    Often when I’m playing a show I’ve recorded the picture will leap back to the beginning about 75% into the show while the sounds keeps going as normal. I’ve had to stop, close the app, and restart. It’s also annoying that it won’t let you do picture in picture like Hulu. You can’t watch the show and minimize it to use another app.
  • 50$ a month ??!

    Who freaking pays 50$ a month and still has to sit through the ads ?? I can get a Netflix account for little as 13$ a month and don’t need to see any ads..

    The video stops playing and it takes multiple attempts of shutting the app down and restarting before it will start again. Please fix.
  • Playback issues

    By Jeff Kreidler
    So many playback issues. I have never encountered these problems on other streaming services before. The main issue I’m getting is shows will not load at all.
  • Don’t cancel account during free trial

    1
    By Kimchihoon
    Apparently it’s their policy now to cancel your free trial when you cancel your subscription. I didn’t want to get billed automagically after the trial was over, so I canceled it. Didn’t even get to use the free trial.
  • Grainy picture due to low resolution

    1
    By EdSk111
    As others, while watching on iPad you notice that it takes up to 10 seconds for picture quality to improve. One needs to manually switch to highest resolution of picture. I have very fast internet and there is no reason for this happening. Even when you adjust this picture resolution for particular channel, once you switch to another it goes down again. There is no permanent setting change for quality of picture. This is just unwatchable. Please fix!
  • Terrible picture quality

    3
    By anonannarbor
    When I open a new channel, it defaults to auto picture quality. And for some reason this means that it is a total blur for 30 seconds until either it figures out that it can do better, or I manually change the quality. It should have a setting for a preferred picture quality to start watching with. Also, it takes about seven button clicks to change a channel. It is virtually impossible to be watching one game while clicking over occasionally to see what is happening in another game on another channel. Changing channels should be one of the easiest things in the world for a TV replacement, but on this it takes exiting full screen, then minimizing the picture you are watching, then finding the other channel in the guide, then loading it up, then changing the picture quality so it is watchable. It's absurdly hard for a simple task.
  • Commercials

    1
    By Coachwebb
    Seriously, why are the commercials so obnoxiously louder than the programming? I wind up muting the commercials, missing part of the show, then rewinding. Going to switch services next month. It’s a HUGE pain.

  • No Channel Lineup

    2
    By Fedora64
    This is a review in the app and not Youtube TV as a whole. It’s impossible to browse what is on a particular channel for the day. Also one of my local channels seems to be missing or won’t sort to the top of my list for parts of the day. DVR playback is choppy. And overall navigation is not as user friendly as I would like to see for what I am paying.

  • Underwhelmed cord cutter

    2
    By ts__ts__ts
    I hate to say it but I am pretty underwhelmed by youtube tv. The interface is big and goofy with giant fonts and a poor use of screen real estate with minimal customization options. The sound quality is noticeably grainy and there are no channel numbers or presets I can just “type in.” TV watching requires effort with youtube tv and I can not easily channel surf. So far youtube tv has me thinking, “this is the best a company of this size on this edge of technology with these resources can do?”
  • One feature that will greatly improve this app

    By jdmccallum
    Besides weird advertisement issues, which I assume is the network’s issue, this is much better than my previous Comcast. ONE REQUEST: Please add picture in picture support for iPad!!!

  • Can be frustrating

    3
    By peetee peetee
    There have been way too many times when watching a program it suddenly cuts out to something else and you lose the image. Often this happens towards the end of the episode, hence the frustration that you can’t know how the episode finishes. It seems like the person recording the program for YouTube TV “accidentally” changes the channel. I am aware of this happening for HIMYM, Stumptown, Modern Family, Blacklist, and the Rookie
  • Starts low resolution and stays for long time

    2
    By Ipad user dude
    The app for iPad opens channels on low resolution for 20 seconds or more then switches to high res. I can manually switch to high resolution every time and there is no buffering or lag. I have very fast internet and wifi with no interference. Other streaming apps don’t do this. YouTubeTV on my smartTV don’t open in low resolution or buffer. It’s very annoying to have to set the resolution EVERY time I open a channel on the iPad app. It wasn’t always like this either. An update a few weeks back caused the problem.
  • Don’t miss cable

    By butcheb
    I’ve been using YouTube tv for just over six months now and have to say I am more then happy with the app and service. I am getting all the shows and local tv that I need and when sports come back plenty. The only complaint I have is at times 3 screens is not enough with every one staying home now at times we run into a little problem. But with saving over $100 a month vs cable I can live with it.
