Long recordings have issues  onehndbkhnd  4 star

Overall, the experience is great. My area for improvement is recording long length programs. For me it is 8-10hr long Tennis Channel programs. I need to be able to go to the beginning of the recording while the program is still recording. In every situation that this occurs, the first few hours get clipped and I can’t watch the entire program from the beginning until a day after the program airs, at which the programming has gotten stale, since it is live sports coverage. I’ve made multiple requests that this be fixed. Customer support is good at contacting me, but they have not yet fixed the problem.


Trash  1namean  1 star



Not enough control  uhohhotdog  1 star

It records reruns of shows. I don't want it recording a marathon of old episodes. Needs Comedy Central. Edit: no it's not about storage space it's about clutter and being organized. Make things easier to find. Second edit: I had a show recorded and it got deleted. If there’s infinite storage space it never should’ve been deleted. If I could give negative stars I would.

Constantly freezes. Also, could be a bit more user friendly when navigating through the app.


CASTING ISSUES  Cali_red_1234567890  2 star

I love this app and it works really well on my iphone as long as I am not chromecasting to my TV. I went out and bought a newer Chromecast because my old one had connection issues with the mobile app and now the newer generation is having even worse problems. If you fix this portion of the app and allow me to chromecast with fewer issues I would give a better rating.


Sharing with Family does not work  Eirík  2 star

I’m standing right next to my wife, also try with my brother and for some reason it keeps telling me that they are not in the same country as me... I tried resetting and doing everything on the book, even uninstalling the app and still does not work. That was the only reason I joined but it seems like as soon as the free trial is done I’m out. I also wish they have more content...


Always asks to login  spotty287  3 star

Always asks to login now I can’t. It gives an error.


Don’t cut your cord yet!  applecustomer1234xyz  1 star

There is no DVR. If you’re watching a program and pause. It does not allow you to resume where you were. It is not remember where you were. You have to find the episode you were watching. And then locate where you Last watched. Imagine what happens if you have a long pause. It’ll take you a while to figure out where you were. And as you scroll through programs it will stop every few moments to make you watch the commercial breaks. Some of which are several minutes long. Which you cannot fast-forward through. Want to fast forward through a movie? Each time you do so you have to sit through 3-4 minutes of commercials. Each time. Trying to find where you paused a movie to go to the bathroom or go to the kitchen for some water… Google TV forces you to watch 12 minutes of commercials (four minutes of commercials each time you hit fast forward). I don’t remember my cable DVR forcing me to do this. 12 minutes of commercials just to find where you left off in a movie? Pretty clumsy. Definitely second rate. Not worth giving up your cable DVR.


Closed Captioning Problem  RFC-5822  1 star

When using the Digital AV Adapter by Apple to display media on an HDMI device, the Closed Captioning appears on the iPhone instead of the HDMI device. Other apps (e.g. ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Now, NBC, SlingTV, SNL, TubiTV, YouTube [yes, their own non-TV app]) get this right, but YouTube TV’s support team says it is Apple’s issue. (They totally blew me off when I brought to their attention!) For someone that needs Closed Captioning, this is a show stopper. UPDATE: A second support member on “The YouTube TV Team” has contacted me that the Apple AV Adapter is not supported. The captions are there, just on the wrong screen and ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Now, NBC, SlingTV, SNL and TubiTV all display the captions correctly on the correct device. They don’t seem to even want to check with their programmers about it.

Future of Tv  Jon Wulff  5 star

Feels good to watch the shows and sports I always have without sending money to the big cable companies.


Good so far  foslyn13  4 star

PROs: Local channels NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CW Interface on iPhone/iPad/Samsung tv awesome, especially the channel preview DVR: keeps your content for 9 mo. No restrictions if multiple shows on at same time or how many you want to save. Also if you find a show mid-season it adds previous eps Cost is low CONs: commercials FF & RW are tricky Not available on Amazon fire tv or stick


Love it, love it will never go back  jose128893  5 star

Absolutely love YouTube tv I’ve had cable for years and it’s garbage compared to this I had to buy the Apple TV box to have something to support chrome cast but other than that I have never had any problems or do I have any complaints it’s very reasonably priced and always stays the same price.. love love love!!!


Issue with some programming  jrinhouston  5 star

Does not stream all shows. Some shows can not be stream on the internet. Tried to watch the nfl games on Thursday and could not..

Accident  43 and counting  3 star

This app was purchased by accident. How do I request a refund


Perfect  JOC Jr.  5 star

Works perfect and has all the channels I like to watch. Being able to use the app, watch on my work desktop, and at home is the greatest thing. NFL season is coming up and as long as able to watch the Seahawks play on FoxNet there's nothing I have to complain about.


Drops Randomly  slmillig  2 star

We’ll be watching a program and it’ll just drop randomly. Very annoying and happens way too often.


Pain to set up  💠la💠  1 star

Having more than one Google account due to work and home, this set up aggravation has led me to cancel the service. Watching the app sit and spin and do nothing, and it won’t let me set up on Apple TV. Too many barriers to using.


Far better than cable  Lindseyfaithgo  4 star

For someone who doesn’t watch tv everyday but has favorite shows to record, this is the best option out there. Price is great, channel, tv show and movie options are great as well.


Not real DVR  RandyKr  1 star

Don’t expect to be able to record and watch shows. I recorded a show less than an hour ago and it’s nowhere to be found. Youtube TV’s support representative told me there was nothing they could do to help.


GET IT.  A QUICK FIX  5 star

Tried it. Loved it. Kept it.
