  • Has its issues. Devs don’t seem concerned with fixing them.

    On several platforms, recordings will record, but they won’t show up in recordings. There is no tab for “recent recordings.” Recordings you care about will get lost in the shuffle and you have to search for them to find them, since they don’t exist on the interface. On some series recordings, the recording not only doesn’t show up, but won’t play when you search it. Recordings that have a time stamp as having already been recorded in the past will be marked as “UPCOMING”. The recording interface is incredibly awfully designed. Some channels are 30FPS and even 720p. This is unacceptable for sports channels. Most are 1080p60 but it’s annoying at times. I’m disappointed as a continuing subscriber that yttv has not been improved frequently enough. Sometimes on a recording, the seeking feature includes a PIP preview of the timeline. Sometimes it doesn’t. Then you’re just guessing where commercials end which is extremely frustrating. There’s also no support for remotes with an ability to simply flip between two channels quickly. The guide is too short in that it won’t go more than a few hours in the future.
  • Good in some ways, but then totally frustrating

    I like that you are able to choose programs to record and that it will then automatically let you play any previously aired episodes for the current season. I love that I don't have to deal with pixelation or other loss of signal issues like with my over-the-air antenna. BUT, the app constantly loses its connection to/from my phone and Chromecast so when I want to rewind or fast forward, I'm left scrambling because I hit pause or any other button nothing happens on my tv (the app on the phone makes it look like it's working fine). You either have to disconnect and reconnect the app from your Chromecast before it will work (and cross your fingers it doesn't start your program over from the beginning like it did to me twice today with a 2 hour long show), or you can try closing the app on your phone and reopening it and hopefully it reestablishes the connection. I would also change the 15 second forward to a 30 second fast forward so I can more quickly get through long commercial breaks (but keep the rewind shorter, like 10 seconds, in case you accidentally overshoot commercials using FF).
  • Love it and won’t look back.

    I have had YouTubeTV now for about 5 months and wish I would have made the change a long time ago. So happy to cut the cable and the outrageous monthly cost. I read some of these bad reviews and I don’t understand why people are having issues. I went out and purchased a few Roku’s for my tv’s and had them set up in less than 10 minutes. Now if I want to watch on my TV I just turn it on with my Roku remote and then click YouTubeTV and it connects right away and I don’t have to stream from my phone. I have found that most times I just lay in bed and watch my shows either live or from my library on my phone or IPad. I have yet to have any issues at all. I also love being able to be out and about and not miss any baseball or football games. Highly recommend this. Keep up the good work YouTubeTV.

    PROS: you get your local channels, the staple channels such as ABC CBS NBC FOX etc. and a variety of sports channels. CONS: we have experienced CONSTANT problems despite the fact that we have high speed internet such as not being able to change channels because it will change on the phone but not on the TV and then no longer pulls up the TV to cast to so we are left to uninstall & reinstall the app EVERY time and programs not playing just to name a couple. Also not a very wide variety of channels to choose from. While you have options to choose from for sports, there's a deficiency to offer popular alternatives like possibly HGTV, GSN, Lifetime, Hallmark or any type of cooking channels. So when comparing pricing and channels offered with dish networks, it's really not worth the trouble to pay the same or comparable for less channels and less conveniences so I'm glad a free trial was offered to know what the service would be like before buying, although I've heard canceling is just as difficult.
  • Cutting the cable

    I’m a one subscriber and not sure how long I will be. But I haven’t had Home cable or Internet for five years now, it’s just to expensive to pay for something that keeps you trapped in your home. Think about it folks, these cable companies are making you pay to stay home. To me that’s a rip-off. I’ve seen many things disappear from our lives, wire phone, vinyl records, 8 track, VCR’s, development of pictures.. to mention s few. Sorry to tell you folks but cable is pase. I’m sure their will be a lot of cleanup work to make the app work flawlessly with all platforms but I think plugging in your cellphone to your TV is awesome!! I just hope they don’t get too greedy. I still have a lot learn about it before I decide to continue, and see if I still have TV when it’s stormy an of course money is always the deciding factor.
  • Needs work

    Needs work When you hide channels that you don’t want to see but every now and then, you have to add them back to your list to watch them. Then I have to remove them again just so I can only see my regular channels that I use daily. Need a list of “your list” and a “view all”. Would also like to be able to set where I want it to open to. I’d like to set it to open Live TV because that’s what I use the most. But I have to wait for it to load then I have to change it to Live and wait again. Would also like to be able to view the evening lineup by swiping down the timeline. It’s 6pm but I just want to see what’s on at 9. I have to leave my view and go to the channel. I should just be able to swipe down to 9. If I like it set a reminder to come back and watch at 9. I want to be able to see all channels at once at 9, not click each individual channel to see 9. Thanks!
  • Overall, thrilled (with a couple exceptions)

    The service and the associated AppleTV app have been the perfect replacement for my FIOS TV service here in New York. I’m giving it five stars simply because I’m so happy with the change— but there is room for improvement: 1. There should be the ability to hide channels you don’t EVER watch, or vice versa, being able to mark channels as Favorites, be able to scroll through only those. Currently in the Live guide, I have to scroll through endless specialized sports channels in order to get to the channels of personal interest to me. 2. The organization of the “Home” and “Library” tabs could be a little more intuitive. Once a show is watched, it should disappear from the “New recordings” list. I also feel like “New recordings” should also group themselves into per-show folders. 3. I find the behavior of the AppleTV remote to be a quite jumpy, especially when going left and right in between Library, Home, Live, and Search. 4. Please support single sign-on on the AppleTV to make using per-channel apps easier! The endless logins are tiresome. Can’t wait for some refinement to the UI, but overall still extremely happy with the apps and with the service!
  • Great concept, not perfect

    I was super excited to download this free trial to watch the World Series. I think this has super great potential. However… In order to watch a show on your TV, you have to screen share from your Apple device. So that means… First, that anytime you want to use Siri to talk to text, your show will end. Next, every time I try to watch a show on-demand and it gets to commercials, it automatically crashes. That makes me have to completely close the app and restart it. Very annoying. Last, if I’m trying to browse the web while I’m watching a show, certain sites will make the show crash as well. I tend to multitask a lot while watching TV, so these are relevant problems for me. If you can handle watching TV without being on your phone and letting your phone do its thing while it broadcasts a show, you should have no issues.
  • Ads cause freeze of playback

    2
    By Koko3333
    Playback of a program is fine until the first set of ads come up, then playback freezes part way through the ads. When you try and restart, the ads start again and usually the playback freezes again. Sometimes, if you restart multiple times you can get the program playback to resume instead of the ads starting over and freezing. However, when the next set of ads come up, the whole cycle starts again. Consequently, the entire episode cannot be viewed. This did not occur during the free trial, it only become an issue during the second month. Live TV is working fine, but the main attraction was to be able to view programming at a later time. I am going to have to cancel the subscription since this issue is not being resolved. Too bad! I was really enjoying the service prior to this issue....
  • Best Service I've Used

    By sspediacci
    The most feature and content rich service available for the money. Hands down. My roommates and I all share access to the service and each person (+ significant others) are added as "family" members. Everyone has their own log in and ability to record shows without conflict. It's amazing. That's $35 divided by 6 people who all have their own set up! I have a Chromecast and a Google Home Mini set up, which is useful for controlling the TV. If I know what I want to watch, I can tell the Google Mini the show, movie, or channel to throw on. I can also tell it to pause, rewind, or fast forward. What I'm trying to say is that I've tried other services and nothing even remotely competee from my perspective.
