Not giving wide selection that you get in Xfinity
Blueeyesmac on 12/13/2017
App has very limited content for each show. Where are all the seasons of triple D which I can see in xfinity. Besides there is a lot of commercial on 20 mins show. Abusing customers.
App broken

Won’t update or download.
-10000000 on this app
Apollo rocks on 12/11/2017
This is all this app does, buffering, buffering , buffering , buffering buffering, then skips a whole part of the show! This app needs to be fixed! It’s wicked aggravating
Force Quits Constantly
smaine521 on 12/11/2017
I love being able to watch the food network shows on this app when I’ve missed them on tv. Ever since the recent update though, the app force quits every time I change to change the screen orientation or when a show ends. Then I have to open the app and start again. This happens constantly and needs to be fixed! I also cannot turn off the closed captioning. It appears on every shows even the option says it’s turned off. Please fix these!!!
App still needs fixing!
ARM012085 on 12/10/2017
Wonder when they will actually fix the bugs this app has? I use Chrome cast and every other app works perfectly fine. Food Network App nope, app will crash all the time. I’ve emailed them and they’ve asked me to uninstall and reinstall. I’ve done that numerous times and doesn’t do anything. After reading some reviews, it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one having this issue. Thank goodness I’m not paying for this app otherwise I’d ask for a refund.
Show stops in middle and restarts from the beginning.
Mehr10s on 12/8/2017
I love food network and I don’t have cable so this is a great option. Only problem is, the app will automatically reset the current episode to the very beginning. This can happen 5 minutes in, in the middle or with 5 minutes left. This is very frustrating! Also by automatically playing an episode in the background of searching it has GREATLY slowed down the app. NEEDS MAJOR IMPROVEMENT!!!!
Sign In Never Works
Brooke R on 12/8/2017
I can never get my DirectTV login to work in the app. Since it has changed to the new login style it always tells me my information is wrong, and it isn't. I can log into other apps easily, so it is an issue with the app. I hope this is fixed soon
Helpful and relevant videos, simple and easy
Katie Baron on 12/7/2017
Huge collection of a variety of videos that are so simple, to the point, and incredibly helpful. App is simple, easy to use and navigate, and well-designed. Plus, I found so many good tips and recipes for my 1-year old and 7-year old picky eaters, really a huge help for this tired and frustrated momma lol
App closing
lindasuework on 12/7/2017
This app will work for awhile then closes while I’m watching a show. Sometimes the screen just stays blank and the show never comes on
To much of a hassle
70kid on 12/6/2017
I download the app, could not log in I have a provider that food network accepts and I cannot log in! I google foodnetwork and go live tv, sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. It is very annoying wanting to log in and can’t! To much hassle! Not worth it.
Great App
Concertina Player on 12/5/2017
I just discovered that I can watch Vegas Cakes on my iPhone using this app and my local cable company. It’s easy and intuitive to use.
Shuts down
Miss-Nox on 12/4/2017
Every time an episode ends- the app shuts down and closes. I love the shows i get, but I definitely don’t like having to upload everything again as soon as the episode is over. 3 stars for content. -2 stars for the app itself
Commercials repeated..ugh
draker111 on 12/3/2017
This is a great app but it plays the same commercials over and over again. Every commercial break each commercial plays twice in a row at least! This ruins any commercial messaging for the advertiser as well. Almost makes it not worth using the app, please please fix this problem so it can be a great app and allow the shows to be enjoyed again!
Still not working
Doug897 on 12/3/2017
As others have noted, all of a sudden you can’t log in if you need to first click the “other providers” button. It doesn’t do anything. Same with HGTV. Fix this!!!!!!!
Cutting ending
Mountainav on 12/2/2017
Why are you cutting off the last minute or two off the show. I don’t know who on the cookie challenge or the Halloween challenges.
Missing the end
Armywifemaryward on 12/1/2017
The app cuts off the end of the shows. Who won the last Holiday Cookie Baker show??? Sooo frustrating.
BOOHISS Cannot enter magic code
fred farquart on 11/30/2017
I’m in Safari I’ve typed in Food six times now and no place to enter the magical number for Charter Spectrum WORTHLESS TO ME.

Jwsmith111 on 11/29/2017
It won’t let me sign in to my provider. 😡😡
Would’ve given 5 stars but....
JStalls on 11/28/2017
Excellent App except for the commercials that even premium cable subscribers have to deal with
So many bugs!
bakingchamp on 11/22/2017
I can’t even get logged in, says my internet provider doesn’t exist. This isn’t true, I can log in via text website but not the app. So much room for improvement.
Merchon on 11/21/2017
It works with xfinity now. But, I’m tired of entering an unlock code every day.
I love watching what I want!
CEF1998 on 11/21/2017
It's awesome to be able to re-watch old shows or catch something I missed on TV, especially since I don't have TiVo. I do agree that there seems to be an over abundance of commercials and it would be so great if the player controls were larger. I have such a tough time hitting the Play/Pause and Rewind 10 Seconds buttons!
Frustrating. on 11/20/2017
Streaming works when it wants. Chrome casting is a huge pain shoes will either buffer endlessly or play and crash or refuse to play at all. I have to restart the tv and app and cross my fingers. Other streaming apps work perfectly fine but for some reason the food app is very touchy and doesn’t like to keep playing.
Can't Sign in
BTMandy on 11/16/2017
The"More Providers" link doesn't work. I can't sign in to watch anything but the "free" episodes. This has been going on too long. Please fix.
I like this app, however the closed captions are annoying!!
ElephantFan26 on 11/15/2017
I got the app, and I went to watch my favorite show. I was disappointed to see that the closed captions we on, and they wouldn’t shut off. This is really annoying to me, because I don’t care for closed captions. Other than that and the amount of commercials, I like this app.
Room for Improvement
DJPINTMUSIC on 11/14/2017
Lately shows have been prematurely ending. When this occurs it cuts off the last 5-10sec of the show, returns you to the main menu and resets the episode to the beginning, as opposed to a save point. In order to watch the last 5 to 10 seconds you have to reload the episode and scrub all the way to the end, often times watching all of the commercials again, just to watch the last 5 to 10 seconds. As you you know with how Food Networks editing style the last 5 to 10 seconds can sometimes be the best part. Updates keep adding more bugs. Time for a clean slate.
TrinityTester on 11/13/2017
There should be no ads on an app that I log in with my tv provider on. Too many ads make a poor viewing experience
Sign in not working
Nbailz on 11/12/2017
For over a month the “other providers” button hasn't worked. You’re missing out on a ton of views
No sign in
crimedog59 on 11/6/2017
Not able to sign in to my cable provider. After pushing the other providers button, nothing happens. Please fix....
Commercials are ridiculous
brenjaminbarker on 11/6/2017
I already pay for this channel- why should I have to watch multiple commercials in the middle of these shows. And why is it so limited? Put everything on there. I don’t get it. Food network has really fallen on quality.
Can’t Log in with Alternate Providers
Kippermand on 11/4/2017
I went to go pick another cable provider from the main screen (Frontier) and the page never loads, so I can’t log in.
Good so far
foodnetworkjunky on 11/4/2017
Happy with app.
Toasteeos on 11/3/2017
The app keeps crashing when I try to turn the screen to landscape.. after three tries, I no longer want to watch any show. App doesn't save playback and I have to watch an ad before scrubbing through to the point I was watching when the app crashed just for it to crash again.
Too too many ads!
Franny on 10/27/2017
Too too many ads in this App!
Love it!!!
nena1953 on 10/26/2017
I can’t say enough great things about this app. It works perfectly I can catch up on all my favorite shows with ,their on demand feature (((( Baking wars anything ))))) . But ultimately my favorite favorite thing is been able to watch live tv!! Amazing 🥓🍔🌮🍗🍖🥘🍝🍝🍝🍚🥒🍆🥔🍯🍅🥚🥚🍟🥘🍣🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂!!!! Keep up the great work on and off the app.
GinaMonkey on 10/26/2017
About halfway through watching any show it freezes then starts from the beginning, every single time I use his app.
Not enough free episodes
Bleeblahhvluueee on 10/23/2017
Love all the shows this network has to offer, but there are not many episodes you can watch unless you have an account that unlocks all of them. Also the number of commercials for watching one episode is ridiculous.
It crashes too much. 👎🏾
VictoriaTerez on 10/17/2017
This app has the potential to be amazing. It crashes so much that it makes you not want to watch. Please fix this.
Xfinity on Apple TV? Nope
reeshard08 on 10/15/2017
Please explain to me why I can get this app to work on my iPad and iPhone and NOT on my Apple TV! Fix this. Please add Xfinity to your list of providers.
Apple TV app has major issue
huff3566 on 10/15/2017
The instant live TV feature is nice in concept, but when going back into the app it consistently is frozen and doesn’t work until the app is shut down/force closed. This is the same issue across HGTV, DIY, Cooking Channel and other apps that use the same feature/format.
Please fix
Chrissypooh6582 on 10/14/2017
I love this app when it works properly. After ur recent “bug fix” lol I can’t sign in with my cable provider. I tried pushing “other providers” and the search bar comes up and no list and when I put in the name it says I spelled it wrong. Please fix I watch every week.
Poetexcell on 10/14/2017
This app is fab. It's set up where you can find the show that you want so easy and shows the dates so you can play "catch up" on all of the episodes you missed. I love it.
Sign in not working
Clur573 on 10/13/2017
When I try to sign in with my cable info, I click on the “more providers” thing, but either nothing happens, or when I search for my provider (which is pretty big and I’ve always found it on other tv apps before), it shows “no results” no matter what I type in. I even tried typing in other providers just to get something to pop up and nothing worked. We really wanted to watch Halloween Wars :(
Love the app
Wild berry tea lover on 10/12/2017
I travel all over the state and I am unable to always see my favorite shows. Not any more!! Commercials are annoying, but I just skip through them.
Puppy_Lover 🐶 on 10/9/2017
To be very honest I'm not talking about the app I'm going to talk about your website Ad after ad after ad and I'm fine with the commercial ads y'know whatever okay sure. But it opens the show and barley before it can even start, ads. After that a little comes on and then, ads. This is a problem that should really get fixed. If you make a website make it good for petes sake! And I clicked on the little videos the website gives and before it can barley even open guess what?! Ads. And when it loads back it's an entirely different video and guess what happens before that can open?! You guessed it! Ads. Please fix this who the heck makes a website that's poorly put together like this?! Sad very sad.
Almost perfect
Cr cool 123 on 10/8/2017
I LOVE this app!!!! I could watch tv on here for hours at a time. Everything on here is perfect accept for it doesn’t have my tv provider!!! I can’t watch the shows I want to watch! It’s a real pain to have to just watch the clips so food network app please add Google Fiber to your providers
Unable to sign in

Kadygirl 12 on 10/7/2017
I love this app. It is my favorite. The variety of shows is great. Just makes my day.
Love the content, hate how it runs
Teakneepanys on 9/27/2017
His app has been incredibly glitchy. It crashes once every 15-20 minutes or the orientation of the video randomly gets messed up after commercials are played. I love food network and I hope they will work out the kinks.
Locks up and crashes - iPhone 7 Plus iOS 11.0
KrispE00 on 9/25/2017
It takes anywhere from 10 seconds to 2min for the screen to rotate so I can watch the whole screen. Pause doesn’t always work. If I switch to another app and try to come back to food network, the app crashes 50% of the time.
