Way better then Directv or Dish for a way better price. Cancelling directv and get YouTube TV is a great decision.
I love it
GoldenKnights123 on 6/24/2018
Buy bye direct tv.
Using with Apple TV
JVF04079 on 6/24/2018
YouTube TV works well with 4th gen Apple TV. There is no app for earlier versions of Apple TV, so I have to use AirPlay from my more thing to go wrong. I’d like to see apps for older Apple TVs and, as someone else recommended, 30 second fast forward instead of 15.

At no where in it's promotion is it made clear that a paid subscription is required to use this service until after it's downloaded sorry I'm already paying enough money just to watch television I don't need another bill .
No free trial for iOS users
ozarkham on 6/24/2018
Signed up with my iPhone. Canceled within 24 hours and Apple charged me. YouTube told me to contact Apple. Apple said it doesn’t qualify for refund.
Awesome App and service
Gods_Gem on 6/23/2018
I use the YouTube TV app through Apple TV. It works very well. Love it!
Happy that I don’t have to deal with cable contacts.
ZTorch on 6/23/2018
This is a moment of reality when tv customers are given a break. Thanks to the cable cutters and the ingenuity. I would like to request that food and travel channel be added on. Food channel has been added as I have requested. I am really pleased with it. I have everything that I needed. You would not go wrong with you tube TV.
bbkamn on 6/23/2018
Hi I need HBO on your perfect application Please Please When do u want to release that?
Love it!
manusansal on 6/23/2018
Five stars service!!!!!
Not perfect and getting worse.
swom1 on 6/23/2018
Pros: I really love the infinite DVR. The search capabilities are good as well as the ability to preview other live channels. Cons: The biggest issue is that it does a poor job of recovering the chromecast connection when I unlock the phone. I often have to disconnect and reconnect to regain control. The HULU app does a far better job of this. Start hiring better programmers and QA folks. Also, it gets hung up constantly on ads which means shows that were recorded often can't get started. This app is getting worse with each revision. At a minimum it would be nice if it just worked.
Love service but app is buggy
Snacksalot on 6/23/2018
They do keep updating which sometimes causes and sometimes fixes issues. June 4th update claimed to have added new local stations. When I sent them an email asking what the stations were because my channel lineup had not changed I received an email stating that they did not add any new stations and that was an error. June 11th same thing but support claimed Telemundo stations were added. I am just making sure they are not trying to deceive. June 21st I have to delete app and reinstall more than once this week due to fast forward not working. All week movies from my DVR won't play and will play live tv instead. So frustrating. Customer service emailed me and told me issue was fixed and it is not! This is a far superior tv service to Hulu tv however I have to restart my phone and chromecast several times a day to watch stuff. Now more frequently. I enjoy the DVR, guide, movie selection, and not having to pay for Comcast very much! Best service maybe ever, but I can't give it high stars because it's an App rating. I frequently have to disconnect and reconnect to chromecast just to unpause and then I loose my place. It's frustrating!!! The guide needs work in letting you see what's on next. It's impossible to read about other movies or browse because the app starts what page you're on. Other then buggy iPhone app issues, the streaming quality is great, they keep adding channels, customer service really does try, and it the app is easy to use. The unlimited DVR sure is motivation to stay with this service and for the price it's certainly beyond worth it!
It’s the best thing since XFinity
Joeyfab4 on 6/23/2018
Glad my brother recommended YouTube TV. It’s the best thing since XFinity. I don’t have to worry about pixelated screen or losing signal from the antenna and all my favorite channels are there. I highly recommend to my friends and family. It’s also costs much much less than XFinity.
XYXY19 on 6/22/2018
To expensive.
Welcome to the 21st Century.
Lobo4Nochee on 6/22/2018
Great app.
Good but Chromecast support is terrible
Lifemoveson on 6/22/2018
Even after Chromecast and YouTube TV being part of the same Google products lineup they arent very compatible. My first generation Chromecast doesn't work well when I stream any live channels. Please fix it and so that I can trust you guys more.
Great potential, but terrible outcome
Gghdghfehjfdchy on 6/22/2018
The “Free” trail, isn’t free, waste of 64$, thanks, YouTube. Don’t get the free trail. It’s not free. Also YouTube TV itself isn’t even that good. A lot of channels are not even a little close to the best quality (Best quality possible should be available for a 64$ per month service). Also, YouTube TV adds channels you can get in HD completely free as a excuse to advertise more channels on the service. (Such as MSNBC, which could be watched on the MSNBC app completely free and in HD). There is also ads if you want to watch movies and TV shows. I mean, the price is almost as much as cable TV, and you only get a little more than 60 channels. Just get Sling TV if you like watching live. Not only is it cheaper, it’s just better. And the free trail is actually free on Sling.
Very buggy app
jcook4523 on 6/22/2018
YouTubeTV service is amazing... this app is frustrating. Many many bugs: - when you select ‘start from live’ the show still flashes live, often ruining the score of a sporting event if you’re starting it late - randomly the app will shut down completely with little grey wheel on black screen before going to the home screen - app randomly will lose audio if you sleep iPad during show and wake again - sometimes app won’t let you move ahead via the time bar on bottom because it’s frozen
Awesome! But I want Comedy Central
mpschoney on 6/21/2018
Love love love this app and service. Keep getting more channels like Comedy Central. Thanks!
Worst service in the world
RDBloom183 on 6/21/2018
Don’t bother. I began using YouTube TV about a month ago and it worked perfect for about a week. It’s has nothing but errors and playback errors now. Complete and utter waste of money.

Missing piece in TV entertainment
hiashhere on 6/21/2018
Finally found the simplicity, the missing piece in TV entertainment. Easy to subscribe, unsubscribe, free and convenient recording the way it should have always been, and I can take my recordings on the go while traveling. Using it to follow FIFA World Cup and then disconnect in a month. Awesome app!!!
eH iPad on 6/21/2018
Yes! I’m more productive because I can watch the news and other shows on my iPad while I’m working on my MacBook Pro and not feel like I’m missing out on as much relaxation time! Who knew ?! Watching tv can be productive!
Like the YouTubeTV Experience but...
TooFunny2 on 6/21/2018
Your Ads are killing me. I can appreciate the ad dollar but please please please figure out a way like Hulu to buy out of Ads for a nominal fee or let me fast forward through recorded shows. Every time I see that little yellow Ad pop up on a commercial break I start hyperventilating ;) and to be honest, I’m thinking, sadly, I’ll move back to Hulu once they straighten out their channel grid if YTTV doesn’t fix this :(
Great app minus one star for the ads
headcase99 on 6/21/2018
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.
Currently unavailable
Pavelkaz on 6/21/2018
Too expensive and coverage is often unavailable
Needs Enhancements
Tenochka Rey on 6/21/2018
I have been subscribed since 5 months ago, To see the World Cup Russia 2018, but I would to listen ESPN Spanish commentators, because it’s a world tournament. (Futbol Picante in ESPN, or Sport Center, La Ultima Palabra LUP, etc etc.
Doesn’t work
Danny P21 on 6/21/2018
I’d like it if it worked...
Not satisfied
xX_SUPERMAN_Xx on 6/21/2018
I am only able to view This app on my phone. I am not able to use it on my LG smart tv nor on my Samsung 4k player and is not worth my time trying to figure out how to watch on my lap top. But why would I want to watch tv on my lap top when I have at TV? Not welling to pay for a service that is limited to my cell phone. Why is this a separate app????? Why not just add a tab on YouTube labeled “YouTube Tv” and those who pay for YouTube Tv can simply click on the tab and watch!!! So simile but no' Plus when you call your cable company to disconnect they usually hook you up.
Great Service, but needs more channels
StarkDDS on 6/21/2018
Finally a streaming service with all of the local channels. Quality of service and user interface is great too. I just need more channels to be available and would like to see premium channels like HBO to be available. I am okay to pay more for these things. When that happens i can give you a five star rating.
TiVo??? I thought we killed that already!
Whisen82 on 6/20/2018
Seriously, I think you guys have like completely missed the point of this decade, OTT! Why do I have to “schedule” things to record? They are either released or they aren’t. If I could slap you through this I would. Dear Google, I love you but.... come on!
Absolutely love this app
DoronTam on 6/20/2018
Great channel lineup, awesome interface, works super well with Chromecast and Google Home, and the price is right!
Kidplug on 6/20/2018
Very happy overall ....
KKLowell on 6/20/2018
Works better with Apple TV, ROKU or recent Samsung TVs. Ironically - it seems to struggle with Chromecast
Perfect app and service
jeffs23 on 6/20/2018
How can anyone seriously rate this anything but 5 stars??!! Its to me the perfect app and service
Good alternative to cable
Mrspecialt on 6/20/2018
I think that this application is good. It works great on any platform and it looks great on any tv, iPad, iPhone, and even Android and Roku products. I love how you have unlimited DVR capabilities. I would hope that they’re able to get more channels especially Viacom products. If you’re unsure of this app vs others out there (Directv now) I would highly recommend this one. So go ahead and do a free trial and see it for yourself. However, if you don’t like it please remember to cancel it before the trial is over.
I’m So Annoyed With This App.
SloanStefanakis on 6/20/2018
The commercials scattered through even the recorded episodes are CANCEROUS. There is a glitch rn where i’m 3/4 the way through an episode and restarts the episode from the beginning @ 40 mins... I have to restart the app/just cancel out the show to re click it and it forced me again to watch 3.5 minutes of commercials over again. At 30 bucks a month i’m really disappointed with how it has worked for me. It feels like a sold out version of youtube. It has turned into exactly the reason why I started watching youtube to begin with. Too corporate, too many commercials, and highly artificial. Don’t buy.
Pay 40$/month for having adds every 5 minutes
Ge_o_eG on 6/20/2018
The app looks good and the functionality seems well thought, but the moment you put a movie or a recorded show it starts including advertising every 5 minutes. It is quite annoying for 40$/month.
Very nice .
DAB777 on 6/20/2018
I have had Youtube this for a month, and so far I love it. It takes a few minutes to get use to the menu , but it really is very easy to find your way around. And unlimited DVR service. I have an unlimited data internet, so I’m good to go. And one reason I chose it, is because I can get all of my local stations live where I am. And the other streaming services do not have that. 👍☮️😎
TV how it should be
Jason G... on 6/20/2018
This service is a game changer low cost and plenty of channels and movies. Don’t use Apple Pay and you can add Showtime, Starz and Fox Soccer. The only live local streaming service that offers CBS and a great selection of sports. Unlimited DVR no extra cost and family share with 6 members that each have their own DVR and live channel guide. Always adding new channels, and locations!
Better than cable
Artorres on 6/20/2018
Excellent customer service! Thank you!
This app it’s a joke.
Update . Update update update on 6/20/2018
Don’t buy it Too expensive and don’t have enough channels. It’s not worth it For right now stick with cable people. I think YouTube can do better. Try and you’ll see
“Playback Error”
hughmcmillan on 6/20/2018
“Video playback interrupted. Please try again. Please report this ID to help us fix the problem: 4W1RNQQBSZ33” The above message appears often and Google wants me to report it but gives me no indication where to do that. I guess they assume we Google it... This app is OK when it works but the interface and required clicks are annoying. This is obviously a hobby largely ignored by the developers.
Spotless so far
Not a dieter on 6/20/2018
I’m only a couple of days in to my free trial but so far I can’t find fault and have already cancelled and returned equipment on my old satellite service. Yes there are some minor sacrifices but comparatively the mix of channels for me, my two young kids and my wife is significantly better than any other cord cutting service and for a better price. The live guide is sleek on my phone and works fine when played on my TVs through built in Roku on the TVs or my Roku Express. The guide functionality is different but capable and the search and record feature is slick. It’s instant and better than anything I’ve experienced. The record/DVR/Search function is so easy to use that if you know the name of the show, sport or team you want it feels like Christmas compared to my old Satellite set top boxes. Plus it basically gives you immediate access to “on demand” options as long as your show is available. Wow is about all I can say.
I'd love to give a review, but I can't get the app to even start
Johnhite on 6/19/2018

My cast button has gone missing in the app
Sports stutters.
kollsco on 6/19/2018
Shows and commercials all stream fine, but sporting events don’t steam well. Tried things the help centers suggested, but it’s not working. Not fun for World Cup.
Best online tv service by far
ErikLively on 6/19/2018
Unlimited DVR, available on Xbox One, Apple devices and laptop. All local channels. Perfect service.
