It’s honestly the best tv product I have purchased, I’ve been a member for about a yr. However, there are a few things I would love to see added: 1. When browsing through all the movies / series, you can not tell which movies or series you have already added to your library. After selecting the title, it will than show you have already added this to your library, rather than scrolling and selecting only what you need. 2. When you view what is being recorded or upcoming, it appears to be recording new episodes AND episodes I have already saved under my library. I wasn’t sure if this was a glitch, but it prevents a member from seeing what would be new and upcoming, rather than something that is already saved. Plus it only allows you to see 50, half of which you have already recorded and saved to your library.
Why is the app so far behind Netflix and Prime Video??? One of the biggest misses is that there is no progress bar telling you exactly what you have previously watched, Netflix and Prime have this feature. It is also a terrible experience switching between channels or returning to a show you have been watching. I am always having to close the app and restart it to move from show to show and to stream the show I want via Chromecast. If you pause a show do something different on your phone and return, often times the app won't remember you have paused the show and will make you start from the beginning or watch from live so you constantly lose your place. The basic navigation functions of the app don't work as they should. What's worse is that it has been like this for 12+ months whilst they have increased the prices to include channels I don't even want. Get your act together Google and look at Prime and Netflix and create a stable, functioning app whilst providing more channel selection packages at lower costs.
I was hoping this app would suffice to replace my standard cable television, but unfortunately, I can’t watch an entire episode of anything without a video-killing bug ruining the whole thing. Specifically, about 3/4 of the way through a television series episode, the video glitches and odd things begin to happen: the audio track jumps to the beginning of the episode, the video freezes for a moment and then continues to play under the audio from the beginning. And then the advertisements! Oh goodness! For $50/month, I would expect fewer ads, but there they are every 10 minutes: 2 to 3 ads at a time. And guess what? When you have to close and re-open the app to find your place in the episode you were watching, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. You try to track through to the spot where you left off. The episode starts to play, and then a series of ads immediately kicks in. Missed your spot? More ads. It is infuriating and app breaking. I am using a first-generation iPad Pro, for what it’s worth.
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.
I believe I was one of the first subscribers in my area. The app worked flawlessly, but not anymore. When watching recordings, the program regularly stops after 40 minutes regardless of program watched. The program then starts from the beginning. I have to restart my phone to continue watching from the interrupted part. Now when watching a show that is recording and if I don’t catch it from the beginning and ask the app to display it from the beginning, the show repeatedly starts over from the beginning on its own while I’m watching. It is extremely frustrating! My price is scheduled to increase to add more channels I don’t care to watch while the channels I inquired about having added haven’t been added and there is no communication about if they will be added. It seems like soon after I recommended the service and app, the reliability tanked. I’m not going to pay more for worse and not getting what I want. I use an iphone 8S plus with the most updated ios.
