  • Rip off!

    By Ray Centeno
    Very dissapointed with Google. I just imagine how many millions of dollars they get through this app when you loaded it with Apple, and is no way you can get your money back. Be careful I thought that’s was a free trial but I was charged immediately $44.99 and if you don’t cancel will automatically charged you on a monthly basis. Very hard to canceling, there’s no information where to do so and no contact number to disputes. Once you click ok your are accountable and isn’t a back way to recover or credit your money. Don’t get cut!
  • Cable Free!!!!!

    By JonJep11
    Household of 5 and gave up cable 4 months ago and couldn’t be happier!!!! Don’t miss cable at all and saving $150 a month which isn’t bad either!! Thanks to a buddy for recommending YouTube TV. Great selection of channels again love it.
  • Poor video quality Apple TV 4K

    By ChelseaBlue4Ever
    And it’s not my internet connection. So bad. Unwatchable Both 4K devices in my house
  • Buggy

    By sccrvr:;
    Appp on appletv is garbage. Streams at 240p even with 400 mb connection. It wasn’t like that before few months. It takes like 3 mins to buffer to Hd. None of other streaming apps I have issues like this.
  • Worthless

    By tytttttyggggggg
    Planned to evaluate as an alternative to cable but doesn’t work on my set up. Also was charged even though I was signing up for the free trial. Apparently can’t get free trial through IPhone. Won’t try this again and will soon be getting rid of the IPhone.
  • Worked well at first

    By Jstrazz
    App worked well at first, then I started having problems. The picture has poor quality when you first change the channel and stays poor for several minutes. It also takes a long time for the channels to come on after you change the channels. I hope they fix the problem soon. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the app.
  • Would be 5 stars if they got Viacom channels and all premium add on channels

    By timmyleahy
    It’s like getting 80% of what a real cable provider gives.
  • Great value, channel offerings and features

    By loopdesign
    My only minor complaint would be the lack of PBS. (Workaround with PBS app) And the search feature is sometimes a little wonky.
  • Waiting forever

    By Jakeen Turnee
    So I wanted to watch tv, right? I saw this and I said “Huh, This is good.” I downloaded this and I signed in. When I did, it said “ALREADY A MEMBER?” Or “TRY IT FOR FREE” Or something. I pressed already a member, and I had to buy something. I decline the offer and I logged in anyways. But then, I waited forever ♾ to get to the home page. Please help.
  • A modern alternative to a DVR

    Here’s what I love: You can watch your shows on Apple TV, your iPhone or iPad, the web, Google Home Hub, Xbox, Chromecast, and tons of smart TVs. You can save on your cable bill by only paying for Internet. It’s easy to follow your favorite shows, and you have important local and national channels available. Catch every new episode, watch the entire back catalog for tons of shows, or put on Live TV so you don’t miss important events as they are unfolding. Things I don’t love: For old content, the commercial breaks are way too long (you can fast forward commercials for new recordings though) The commercials can be super loud. Get ready to have your eardrums blown out every time the ad for the new MacBook Air comes on. It doesn’t seem to do a great job at surfacing other content you might enjoy.
  • YouTube TV

    By iKCMO384
    love this for my sport shows and tv shows!! and DVR! not great for movies because you still get commercials, but worth it for me
  • User friendly app !!!

    By Ha T.
    Last week I finally dumped my cable TV subscription and switched over to YouTube TV to save $24/month. Love ❤ the ability of YouTube to allow watching NBA game from the beginning vs live, when I was late to turn on the game !!! Choices of channels were excellent👍 !
  • Best app but doesn’t show addons for selection in my iPhone

    By Danny_B92
    So easy to use but does not show addons for more channels for the iPhone I can’t add them through my app please fix
  • Great until it freezes

    By Bubbles_1000
    I Read a review on here from a year ago. 1 year later and I say it is exactly the same problem. It still loses the connection and when you get it back, it starts from the beginning 9 out of 10 times. Yes, you can slide the dot to where you left off (assuming you happen to remember), but the freezing and the starting over wastes so much time that I think I have to switch to Hulu live or something. I also can’t figure out how to see YouTube Red which is included. I really like the 6 accounts and the unlimited DVR. Wish I New how to get rid of recordings I’m done with. I don’t want them there a whole 9 months.
  • Best streaming service yet

    By Jeffreybard
    For me it’s perfect. I have used so many different streaming services with varied frustrating results. Having used YouTube Tv for a month it has been absolutely perfect and as advertised. I watch sports for the most part and I’ve been able to get games of my favorite team, and the college games against no-name schools are always available. Also it has been the best and most consistent picture quality. The YouTube Tv app is phenomenal and use it all the time. It’s really wonderful and I highly recommend it. Especially for sports.
  • No lifetime network for women

    By palermo!!!
    At first glance looks great the guide and everything but once you start using you start seeing the flaws. I don't expect perfection but come on. No lifetime channel!!!👱🏼‍♀️ No CW. And others. Can you please add lifetime if not This is not for the whole family. Also I've noticed that some of the shows Ive recorded I missed the ending because the show before it goes over and it gets cut off that is unacceptable when you're paying for something please fix or I will return to different platform thank you. Updated review
  • Good but Chromecast connection needs work still

    By Chris_Lakers
    Overall, it is a good cord-cutting option. However, the Chromecast capabilities are pretty shotty on iOS in my experience. I definitely suggest this be addressed.
  • It’s okay. Nothing special.

    By CitiMobile
    Barely have good channels. It’s very difficult to use and navigate especially to my elderly parents. Not user friendly.
  • Unplug and Chum’on

    By La Mah-heen-ah
    I have been unplugged for 5yrs now. This just changed the game! Get it now and unplug!
  • Excellent app, but hurt by lack of needs PiP support - still

    By Dsignori
    I love YTTV. The content, the DVR, and the app are all great. But the 1 glaring omission is a lack of Picture-in-picture on the iPad. Come on Google, update your app already to support this important tablet feature. P.S. Vue has it, and it works great. Not having it really sets this otherwise great app back a step. Why isn’t this here yet?
  • Fantastic app

    By Yammer4
    Superior to other internet TV. Enough said.
  • Fantastic!

    By 2341765
    I cut the cable and saved $600.00 a year.
  • Great, with only minor annoyances

    By nnesiba
    I use it on my shield tv and my phone. It’s basically just cable tv with a better ui. Dvr is shared across devices, you record shows instead of time slots, etc. There are a few minor annoyances—some shows don’t let you fast forward through the ads, but that’s worth putting up with for the better ui (and being able to stop paying for cable).
  • Ready to unsub

    By jusnoting
    Because even though the ads are 1:25 sec long there’s just way too many to pay that much Nd still have ads so many in one showing. Honestly I’m seeing ads every 3 minutes
  • Adding shows feature broken

    By dperjar
    Recently subscribed, but the app is broken. I can’t “add” shows to my DVR. When I try the UI updates like it worked but I get a “Let’s try that again” error message that slides up from the bottom and the show isn’t found in my library after. The Xbox one app works for this but it’s a lot clunkier to search for things with a TV remote for typing.
  • Not bad, could be better

    By AlwaysDancing82
    I wish it had picture in picture mode for when I’m watching shows on my iPad while doing other work on it as well. I don’t think this should be an additional $15 premium. I also wish there was a setting to only record new episodes of tv shows in your list, that would be tops if they can make that happen! I’ve got all these back seasons in my DVR that I don’t want or need...makes it cluttered.
  • Beats Spectrum any day

    By seaberry
    Wonderful service!
  • Ok but crappy controls

    By SFSU Alum
    Ok package. “Remote control” via app IS TERRIBLE. And with gig bandwidth is still choppy, with lag and not very crisp picture. Has potential but google needs to dramatically improve the product, particularly the control elements. Please do so because if works properly still can represent value over cable monopoly
  • Great app minus one star for the ads (updated)

    By headcase99
    Great user interface, stable, and high quality streaming video. The only compliant is that for $40 bucks a month, I shouldn’t *have* to view ads. Update: with the agreement to allow skipping ads on various networks, I have to give 5 stars. Kudos to Google for listening!
  • Love!

    By janbenn
    We live YouTube tv! Great connections and unlimited storage!
  • Worth the switch

    By Jodes1000
    I left dish TV over two years ago. I be had sling and PlayStation Vue. So far you tube tv is the best! I love that you can have multiple users in your family. I also like that you can still DVR and have access to AMC. The app has been very reliable, unlike Sling. And unlike ps vue I can have the app directly on my Xbox. I’m very pleased! The only way this would be better is if I HGTV!
  • It’s deceptive

    By Eastsider210
    I bought this app and got none of the things advertised that persuaded my to buy it. What I did get was an offer to spend more on the same app if I wanted to use it. So basically I spent nearly $30 just to have the opportunity to buy it for even more than that. Of course I’m not going to because fool me once, well you know the saying.
  • Best TV streaming platform

    By T. Ritz
    This has almost all the best channels I want to watch. Easily the best option for watching sports. MLB, NFL, NBA, Golf network and others. Recording and watching your favorite shows is very easy and it is very intuitive as to suggested programs. The only things I would change would be the connectivity issue some people mention (which I thought was more my TV & may still be) and channels do not have channel numbers, which would make it easier to navigate directly to channels you want to watch.
  • The Best OTT TV App. Period.

    By pnice008
    Does such a great job of making it easy to find what I want to watch. Also live the extensive DVR technology.
  • Give Cable Tv the Heave-ho

    By Npt Dog
    Very little in this world beats telling Cox Cable, their inflated prices and monopolistic attitude, to go screw. Handing back that cable box and telling them to shove their internet/phone/cable “package deal” was like Christmas, great sex and the birth of a child all in one. So yes, I’m a fan of YouTube Tv. I selected them over the others because their channel line-up had better sports stations, including NESN. I’m paying $39.95/mo. That’s a savings of over $100/mo! No regrets. Great service. It’s the way to go. Brad Bristol, RI
  • Was Okay, JUNK NOW

    By gino125
    Terrible now. Maybe too many people use it now. I’m going to cancel
  • App constantly disconnects with Chromecast

    By Cescson Montenegro
    I’ve been struggling with this for about I year and about a month ago, it won’t recognize the Chromecast at all no matter what I do. I can cast to other apps no problem it’s just the YouTube TV app itself that’s being wonky. I’ve only noticed it on iOS so I don’t know if this is a persistent issue on other smart phones. Love being a member but even after sending feedback and chatting with support, the issue was not resolved. And the support person just didn’t get it. He kept asking me to reset my router and I’m like dude the network isn’t the issue. It’s only this app!!! Deleting and reinstalling didn’t work so I guess I’ll just wait for an update.
  • a/b/g network and 5ghz network

    By Credit karma junkie
    When I chromecast I have to be on the same antenna. This means that my 5ghz WiFi connection from my devices do not connect to the chromecast on the a/b/g 2.4ghz WiFi network.
  • Great app

    By kev672011
    I love this app. I got ride of DirectV and am now only using streaming services and loving it. So glad to get rid of all the extra cost of normal tv services.

    It's a great app.I like the fact that it has unlimited storage.So far there has been on buffering.I highly recommend it.John J
  • Streaming Quality Issues Over Last Week

    By Steve Raymond
    Generally I’ve been impressed with the quality and stability of the YouTube TV app, but over the last few days the streams have been terrible. The streams stall, the picture quality is poor. I’ve tried deleting and reloading the app, but the problems persist. Maybe these problems have to do with the latest version.
  • Disappointed

    By JoJoE6
    Honestly, I have NEVER left reviews on apps. But this one was a huge let down for me. I love YouTube TV, I recommended it to a lot of people. But don’t move because if you do, you’re screwed. I have been trying to update my address for hours now. Apparently you can only be out of the original location you signed up for YouTube TV for 90 days. After that you get kicked out and cannot access the site or app. No one could help me. So frustrating honestly. Ending my subscription.
  • Unhappy

    By pattycake13
    Not worth 49 dollars
  • Great App

    By RJ2208
    The streaming service is almost flawless and the app for the iPhone and Roku are very well designed. The only drawback is I travel extensively overseas and would be nice for me to be able to watch YTTV from my phone. The service knows I proved I’m a paying local customer when I signed up. So what’s the problem?
  • Great app

    By muzfam91
    Great addition to Netflix. Lost a star because we still think the monthly fee is high.
  • I love it

    By ItzBaabooG
    Exactly what I needed
  • Not good

    By Elijahhhhhhh
    I’ve had YouTube tv for about a month or 2 now and it is garbage. Half the time you want to watch something it’s pixelated or blurry. It always signs you out of your account and requires some weird long not very good process to log back in.
  • Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    By RPTLK
    Love this app. Got rid of cable and don't need a DVR. Searches for all kinds of programs and movies new and old and stores pretty much unlimited programming. My husband can watch his sports, and I can watch my old movies. Searches into the future for a movie and alerts you when it is recorded and able to be watched. Already requested my holiday movies without needing a DVR or DVDs. Can watch on my TV or phone, computer or iPad. Awesome! Beats cable hands down!
  • Great everywhere else. Not so great where I live

    By Brods_14
    I live 1 town west of my friends house who gets all the local channels yet when I go home I cannot get any local channels. This is the one major downfall. However, it is still much better than cable and I will just have to wait until local channels are available where I live.
