Great UI. Needs improvement on Apple TV
Daren Riley on 8/19/2018
After using DirecTV Now, I think YouTube TVs interface is much easier to use. My main issue is that it doesn’t allow inertia scrolling on the Apple TV remote. This makes it painfully slow to scroll through the 60 channel guide as I have to swipe my thumb 60 times! Not looking to get carpal tunnel! This should be an easy fix and badly needs to get done.
Need to ensure no data usage on 6s
Me1246436778478 on 8/19/2018
Under cellular data for 6s it gives no option to make sure that cellular data is not used.
Discounted pricing for YouTube premium

I would like to see a bundle pricing for TV and YouTube premium. Steve
Missing Episodes, problems streaming.
vuanator on 8/19/2018
Missing Episodes from multiple shows or recordings are incorrect, problems streaming reliably. I hope they fix these issues sooner than later.
Most apps get better over time but not this one
nope.pdf on 8/19/2018
Most apps get better over time. This one manages to get worse. Now there is no resume feature for replays. What happened?
Free trial not really free?
Texas OD on 8/19/2018
I signed up following the free 1 month trial offer directions and was immediately billed $39.99 on my credit card account through iTunes. Is thus a scam? YouTube TV, YouTube TV (Automatic Renewal) $39.99 Subtotal $39.99 Tax $3.30 TOTAL$43.29
Don'tjenksme on 8/19/2018
I love me this app and service. But really could use PIP, the competition has it, really makes a difference. Please add this feature it’s on most other streaming applications
Poorly developed app.
Donetryingtofindanickname1219 on 8/18/2018
If it didn’t close down in the middle of every show or skip to a completely different episode while watching, it would be ok. But considering that it’s a paid for app, I would expect better. Especially for the price. This will be my last month.
Love it
jireh kaseu on 8/18/2018
Love it best tv experience ever. Just need y’all to get bein sports and it will be perfect.

Try??? You said Try!! Greed
Reaper13Man on 8/18/2018
It clearly says try YouTube tv and before you can even open it to look at it it tells you 39.99 a month plus you can add showtime and stars right now for another fee. Try means try, not pay. I’m not going to give you $40 and then “try” to get it back if I don’t like it, at least give me 7days like sling, or amazon does before I make a choice. Seems super greedy to me. Deleted
Great App, Needs Perfecting
Chip2.0 on 8/18/2018
Love the app and love YouTube TV but there’s some issues that need to be fixed up a bit. As an iPhone X user the slider to scroll Back and forth in DVR content in landscape mode interferes with the native iPhone’s faux home button on the bottom of the screen on the X. This causes it to try and change screens and pause content. This isn’t an issue on the main stream YouTube app and just needs to be ported to this app. Also the content can be laggy at times. I know that can be due to internet connection but it seems that the compression of the videos could be better for high quality video and better streaming. Especially since when there is ‘gaps’ in the signal all the content does is become choppy and unwatchable. Thanks!
Ok for the price
MDaveStr on 8/18/2018
Despite having high speed internet, YouTube TV constantly goes in and out of service. Our devices (some Android and some iPhone) lose connection to the Chromecast, but video keeps playing and we can't change it. It requires us to reset probably every 15 minutes, if we want to be able to control the Chromecast.
Too many commercials
Adidord on 8/17/2018
It provides a service that is cheaper than cable for live tv. BUT there are TOO many commercials. For a 21 minute show, three commercial breaks! It makes many shows unwatchable.
Long recordings have issues
onehndbkhnd on 8/17/2018
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.
1namean on 8/16/2018
Not enough control
uhohhotdog on 8/16/2018
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.
Sweet Miel on 8/16/2018
Constantly freezes. Also, could be a bit more user friendly when navigating through the app.
Cali_red_1234567890 on 8/15/2018
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 on 8/15/2018
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 now I can’t. It gives an error.
Don’t cut your cord yet!
applecustomer1234xyz on 8/15/2018
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 on 8/15/2018
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 on 8/15/2018
Feels good to watch the shows and sports I always have without sending money to the big cable companies.
Hoosier Indian on 8/15/2018
Very happy so far. Seems to disconnect from internet once or twice a day. Occasional poor redemption. Well satisfied with the selection of channels it offers all we need.
x-CNBC on 8/15/2018
If you want to get free trial offer, make sure you sign up on pc NOT ON IPAD OR IPHONE THAT USES ITUNE. Google or Apple does not inform you of the fact that Apple/iTune does not offer free trial and charges $40 right away!
Trailed Many, YouTube TV won
Smug_Doug on 8/14/2018
Better performance than Sling and Vue. Almost seamless with Chromecast. UHTV works well too, given proper bandwidth.
Fast forward through channels
Impaient on 8/14/2018
I would like a page at a time through the channel listing li
Better than sling, but...
dci on 8/14/2018
At least you can pause live TV (unlike sling). And the interface is superior to DirectTV Now or Sling. And the channel package is ideal compared to other competitors. But,the big problem is that your recordings can still get replaced by Video on Demand versions based on the station or show. So you can record the Late Show, but CBS doesn’t let you watch the recording. You have to watch the VOD. And the VOD has way more commercials - and no skipping ahead. I’m paying to have the freedom to record and skip around as see fit - so this is a big problem for me. YouTube should dump CBS (and any other provider that won’t let you play recordings). They’re getting paid for the subscription, so they should just deal with the lost ad revenue. You can charge me more up front if you want to, but there is 0% chance I will actually watch a commercial - so stop trying to change my behavior and start focusing on providing a valuable service.
Needs to be on fire stick Amazon app
AmlissVess on 8/14/2018
The only way I can watch it is on my phone or tablet. Llike to watch the news on tv.
Good app!
Fadonkey on 8/13/2018
I wish they had a “recent” tab for DVR as well as being able to only record “new” episodes for your favorite program because as of right now, it’ll record everything “old” & “new” Other than that, it’s an amazing app that’s on the come up.
Issues with YouTubeTV with Roku
Divinity899 on 8/13/2018
I signed up for YouTubeTV with my Roku but now I cannot access it. I just got charged again for the monthly fee but cannot access it. How to cancel? If I cannot get signed in why am I still being charged??
Casserole008 on 8/13/2018
Got an email yesterday saying there was a problem with my billing information. Updated my card info and re-bought my subscription and now the app doesn’t work!!!!!! I’ve tried restarting my phone and deleting that app and that didn’t change anything. I don’t have cable so I relied on this app to keep up with shows that Netflix doesn’t have, I am so frustrated right now and just might go buy

Fire tv
jmunzz on 8/13/2018
I like it so far. Any chance it will ever be available on fire tv?
Really nice
🐺y95 on 8/13/2018
Great user interface. Super awesome if you have a chrome cast and a google home. I’m still hoping they offer Discovery channels. Absolutely love it! It would be super sick if you could tell Google Home Assistant which episode of your shows you want to stream.
Love it!
ShellsGirl333 on 8/13/2018
I love YouTube TV! It works on different platforms without fail. I just switched from being an android user to and iPhone user and the switch was seem less. It also runs great on my kindle fire! The price it right as well!
YouTube TV/ customer service.
Therealest27 on 8/13/2018
Overall it’s a okay service the problem is not having a actual number to contact the foolish customer service agents they have. Why does YouTube TV lie to customers and charge you after you cancel ? Sounds like fraud to me !!!
Best bang for the buck
donewithdish on 8/13/2018
Better than cable. Better than satellite. I get the channels that interest me and I don’t pay through the nose. Where have you been all of my life? Great service. Don’t change a thing
Stop it
SINZSLAYER on 8/13/2018
Why on earth do you keep bugging me to sign up for you tube t.v it’s not available in my area yet,it seems like everyday you overwhelm me with notices. I’ve recently had a nervous breakdown and I think your bringing me closer to having another.youve just thrown me into a panic attack! I think I might have to speak to my attorney,after I get out of the nervous hospital.
Great live tv streaming
Aprsr on 8/13/2018
I do wish there was a TV guide feature. I have been streaming us tv now for a long time, they have a real good TV guide feature. This YouTube tv is very easy to use.
What happened to Chromecasting?
Slash 251 on 8/13/2018
Before the update, I was able to chromecast from my iPhone to my HDTV easily, reliably. Now, the little symbol does not appear at all on my iPhone and I cannot cast to my television. This is a not good. Whatever improvements or bugs you fixed, you sure messed up with this bigly.
Not worth it
saverious78 on 8/12/2018
Paid the first month and was not reliable when I needed it (watch World Cup games). YTTv Never again!
Still unsure....
TX/NC Girl on 8/12/2018
Freezes in the middle of a show AND my biggest problem is that I can’t watch this on my Amazon Fire!!
I am a happy viewer!
xposr63 on 8/12/2018
I am so happy to have YouTube TV because otherwise there isn’t much to watch in my area. It’s great to have a selection of quality shows to see with the ability to watch them from the onset.
prices !!!
SimplyGabby6 on 8/12/2018
i do not think that youtube should be charging extra just to use a simple app. THAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED !!
Commercials in replays???
mcjaro5 on 8/12/2018
Very happy overall with app. What I don’t like is that there are commercials that you can’t fast forward through on dvr recordings. THATS ONE REASON TO DVR THEM! I end up going to Hulu to watch them instead. I also get frustrated that the fox sports Tennessee channel regularly says that St. Louis Cardinals games are on when they aren’t. That’s a guide problem.
Snugglexxl on 8/12/2018
How is this free. It started with searching for local channels and then showed me the approximate billing would be 39.99. What??? Then next page was an option to add HBO and stars and what not for additional cost. No thanks
Yesssss!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
