  • This app is awesome

    By drewaters
    It’s missing the multitasking that android has but otherwise, I have my dad, my uncle, and my mananger on my account and it works great even with the Xbox one version. Also adding shows and racing events like IMSA and PWC are easy to add.
  • No background on iOS

    By Thtsallfolks
    You allow background play on Android but for some reason want to punish your paying users for using iOS. I understand Google owns Android and are biased but this isn’t a free app like google maps. Which by the way is better on android but I am not complaining about that. I complain for YouTube Tv because we are paying for the service and background play is a very basic feature you decided to exclude for some reason. Otherwise the app is awesome, I canceled Directv Now for this and will monitor if you plan to bring background play. If not I am heading to Hulu.
  • Not worth it for me

    By *The American*
    The channel selection is sports heavy. I’m not that into sports. There’s no HGTV, ID, etc... The price is just too high for such a poor line up. I like the YouTube interface & I would switch providers if the channel line up & price became commensurate. Finally, I don’t really like the name “YouTube”. You on TV aka the tube... like boob tube... look at the boob on the the tube... IT’S YOU!
  • Almost as bad as traditional cable

    By Mike20181
    Incredibly overpriced for the selection of content and the advertisements are more annoying than cable. I seriously had no Idea I was paying $40/month to watch just as much advertisements as content.
  • Love It!!

    By Capt04
    Has worked like a charm. No issues or complaints. Don’t leave many reviews but felt this one was well deserved. Have as many as 3 TVs running the service and no hiccups what’s so ever. Very happy customer! Thanks
  • Can’t watch recorded Shows

    By Skooba26470
    Last update is blocking all shows. Except live TV? I want my $40 back! I thought sling TV sucked but you guys haven’t figured it out either. Now the sound doesn’t line up with the video more than 2 minutes. Painful to watch.
  • Location services has to be ON

    By Ghddddsss
    I gave it 1 star because it wants me to turn on my location before i could watch my showson the phone!!! Turning my location on my phone really drains my battery!!! This is really dissapointing.
  • Excellent experience on Apple TV and iPad

    By kaamoss
    I’ve been using this for 4 months now, and compared it with quality from Hulu. I generally do not have issues with buffer at home at fast internet at 1080p. The streaming quality is pretty good over 3g when I’m stuck in my car too. I have two main gripes. Fist, of you leave the Apple TV app running on the same channel without interaction for past 3 hours you’re likely to hit a playback error. This should really have an auto retry mechanism. Secondly, live sporting events (World Cup, post season baseball, etc) does tend to have issues with stuttering, buffering, and quality. Twice in the World Cup, YouTube tv’s entire service went down for 1-2 hours. It’s not a huge deal, but you sort of expect google of all companies to get this sort of thing right.
  • Best option out there.

    By Shutterpug
    update 10/20/18: I’ve used all of the streaming services and cancelled my Sling subscription a couple of months ago. YouTubeTV has a better channel lineup, less buffering, and a better dvr. Thank you for adding split screen, but I would really like to see PIP added, as MANY others have suggested. I also wish that YoutubeTV would start catering better to non-sports fans. Recently it seems that Youtube is only adding sports content. I really wish that i could opt out of such programming and get comedy central, MTV, and HGTV instead. I also appreciate that YoutubeTV acknowledged the service issue it had this past Tuesday, and offered subscribers a week free service to make up for the disruption. feature requests to bring up to 5stars... 1. More control over dvr recordings. Including: option to record single episode, new episode, series. Ability to delete recordings. Option to protect a recording, so that it doesn’t get deleted, indefinitely. 1b. Recently, shows on my dvr that i have already watched, are showing up as new when the VOD version is released. This is very annoying and i cant find a way to mark as watched, without re-watching the episode and all of the added commercials. Please fix this. 2. Higher resolution streams, I am often surprised by SD and poor quality resolution while watching even on my Roku that is hardwired to my internet connection. 3. expanded guide to include at least a weeks worth of programming. Thanks! (original review, long....) I originally cancelled after the free trial because of lack of device support (Roku). and limited channel selection. Decided to try again, now that TBS and TNT are available. I had fios for years and other than the price was happy. I’ve been using sling for the last year and other than excessive buffering and a limited (although fairly sufficient) channel line up, i was satisfied. But for 5 dollars more, I’m hoping to have a more stable service and an expanded channel line up. So far I am pleased but there are some issues I hope will be addressed. FYI, I watch mostly on my Roku and a Roku TV, and on my ipad when away from home 1. As some others have requested, I NEED a way to select favorite channels, so that I can filter out unwatched networks. I would settle for being able to organize networks by order of personal preference. I don't watch sports, and its frustrating having to scroll through countless sports networks to get to my watched networks. On that note, I wish there was a slim package w/out sports... 2. As others have requested, I wish there was way to record new episodes only. Honestly, it just makes it more difficult to find the episode I'm looking for, especially for shows in syndication. I dont need an unlimited dvr... 100-200 hrs would be sufficient. And, I would rather shows be kept indefinitely. 9 months is ok, but until deleted, would be better. 3. The auto play is extremely frustrating. I’m trying to catch up on newer episodes of the Big Bang Theory, but after watching a single episode it keeps switching to other shows... we should be able to turn it off or be able to set it up to autoplay by series, by favorites, or by suggestion for those adventurous enough to allow youtube to choose for them! 4. There doesn't seem to be a way to start watching where you left off. or it just isn't working properly. Again this seems to be a Roku issue. A choice to “Resume” or “Start over” would be helpful. 5. I really would like a way to utilize ipads multi tasking, so that youtube tv can be minimized when i need to use other apps. 6. Last suggestion, for both Roku and ios App, it would be helpful to be able to get episode info without starting playback. When I’m trying to figure out what i already watched a concise synopsis would be helpful. Thanks for reading!
