This App is Such Garbage.
B.D. Tony on 6/26/2017
The pics and titles often don't match the actual episodes There's 100000 commercials And the absolute WORST part of all: you have to uncast (I have chromecast) after EVERY SINGLE EPISODE and then RECAST it to play the next episode. Every time. It won't let you click another ep. unless you disconnect and reconnect. It's godawful. It's a hassle. Its not worth the trouble.
RayParkerII on 6/26/2017
I can watch live TV or On Demand stuff. Whats not to love?
Great app!
Mekeleke21 on 6/18/2017
This app is perfect! It has all the shows on food network that I want to watch on the go! Just like any other app for a channel on t.v or a cable app! Great!
Good App
CGGIV on 6/13/2017
I've had this app for a few months now and it works pretty good on my phone or computer. The only problem is with ChromeCast, it stalls and skips almost every 5 minutes. -_-
AppleTv app
SFC Y on 6/10/2017
I can log on and watch shows on my iPad through my cable provider (xfinity) but not on the Apple TV app.
Susanluina on 6/8/2017
This is one of the best apps I've ever downloaded
Love this app
lsulli5 on 6/5/2017
I can catch up with all my favorite Food Network shows
Julia love heart on 6/3/2017
It is an awsome app! Love it so much! When and where ever I want to watch my show I can with this app❤️ I recommend it and highly suggest it
Live TV
Fittest King on 6/2/2017
Live TV isn't working! Not to pleased at the moment.
Poetexcell on 6/1/2017
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.
DP1262 on 5/31/2017
On the Apple TV this app is useless. I can't review the Apple TV app anywhere else so here we are. Edit: hey I got a new one! Do you want to watch ginormous food? No you don't. You want to watch chopped. Yeah. The shows don't always match up. Hey did you mute the 500 commercials and realize the show started while you weren't paying attention? Be careful if you rewind back to before that commercial break you muted because this is the only app that makes you watch them again. Do you want your app to not crash or freeze? Better force quit it when you're done watching it or it will be useless the next time you open your Apple TV. Oh yeah you know what's great? Let's organize our videos from newest to oldest so you see the winner in the season finale before you start watching an episode. Wait I have one better. Did you sign in with your cable provider? Because it's been 4 days since the last time you did that and this app has memory of a one year old with ADHD. Useless poorly made app.
Stream the FOOOOOD
pimpfranklin on 5/23/2017
Love it it works great!
Great App
Anonymous33456 on 5/21/2017
I am now able to access all of the shows I love directly via this app. I would love to watch all of my favorite cooking shows while they're airing, but I just don't have the time. With this app, I am able to prioritize my shows and interests and watch at will. I didn't give the app a five star rating simply because some shows are just clips. Other than that, the app seems perfect to me! Thank you Food Network.
I love Food Network
babyrockstarkb on 5/15/2017
And being able to take it on the go is perfect. Even works with my DIRECTV subscription!
App needs fixing!
ARM012085 on 5/6/2017
The app needs to have a major update done. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is having issues with the app crashing. I watch it through my Chrome cast and sometimes it works jus fine and other like right now just keeps shutting down. Very disappointing, fix it!

Just Me Lin on 5/4/2017
Love the Food Network & love this app ! No complaints here ! 👍🏻🙂
Awful app
Matt.Lynch on 5/2/2017
Literally the worst app I've ever used, and I remember iPhone OS 2.0! This app is constantly logging me out, failing to play videos, and the "live tv" function drops the connection at least five times every hour. It's worthless. Actually, it's less than worthless. It's actively frustrating.
Best app
Freds Stuff on 5/2/2017
I've tried many apps and most have failed. This one is great. It's better than the fire stick version. Keep up the good work.
Often cuts out lots of ads
Stop throwing away my reviews on 4/26/2017
Every time I try and watch something in the app it will cut out part way through an episode without saving where I was. Lots of ads. I am not happy with this. I have been attempting to watch the same episode for the past hour and the app will not cooperate. If I could rate less than one star I would.
They need some new shows!
Dittosmom2 on 4/25/2017
Getting tired of the same shows on the food network. Update your talent and get some shows you can actually watch again. I am tired of all the competition shows. There are not enough cooking shows, which is where your popularity came from first. If I want to watch reruns I can go to you tube.
New app
Ms_vonn on 4/23/2017
Just started using this app, but so far so good. I absolutely love it.
Are you kidding me?
Miss Kiki 😝 on 4/19/2017
I love food network, but how can people sign when you do not have a tv provider? Tell me!
Ellabella1441 on 4/19/2017
This app has way to many ads when you try to watch, they are also very repetitive. Also, this app only allows you so watch 1-2 episodes per tv show and some even have no episodes to watch. The thing where you can unlock more things with the tv provider doesn't make sense because the list that they give you may or may not have your tv provider. Please consider this review because I am only 11 and I have found many things wrong with this, please fix the amount of ads and be considerate!
Where Are The Shows?!?
Curtis R. Shideler on 4/18/2017
I want to watch The Great Food Truck Race, but it's not on the app. All of the seasons should be available to stream somewhere. Way to lose more advertising revenue, Food Network.
Love food network
Bill Ryder on 4/18/2017
Works well
Trouble with ap
Jetandk on 4/16/2017
Love being able to watch shows via the ap. With FireTV I will honestly be kicked off of the ap 4-5 times during one show. This means I have to watch an additional 6 ads in order to watch a show I just watched 6 ads for prior to being kicked out of the ap. Server needs to be updated.
An excellent app
Cupcakegirl300 on 4/15/2017
I fell in love with it it is a great app and I love it
loud ad
Shmaginas on 4/10/2017
intentionally makes its ad louder than the users volume preset. I do not appreciate such an obnoxious alteration to my settings. Making an ad louder does not make me more interested. I actually stopped watching the network.
Love it
Luluroller on 4/8/2017
Amazing app to see foodnet work
Poor Execution
LanguageAndSexuality on 4/6/2017
Although I love Food Network shows, this app hardly ever works properly. I am constantly having to close and reboot it, sometimes in the middle of the show, when trying to use it with Chromecast. Even on its own, I find it very difficult to pause a show or skip ahead a few minutes without the app messing up. It leaves a lot to be desired considering how much I want to enjoy Food Network shows.
iPad vs Apple TV
CRDFilm on 4/5/2017
I use the Food Network app frequently but I have a couple of issues. First, why is Xfinity listed as a provider on the iPad app but not on the Apple TV app? If I want to watch a program, I have to switch over to Chromecast. Second, commercials. I've watched various episodes where commercials come on with a countdown clock and when the countdown ends, there are more Food Network specific commercials. When those end, more commercials with a clock and then more FN commercials after that! I sat through about five minutes of commercials before the episode resumed! Ridiculous.
Love the app but...
Addictedtothisgamd on 4/4/2017
Captions are always on even if I don't turn them on
Cool App
Mtucker15😎🏀😎 on 3/29/2017
It's a cool app but it needs less adds!!!!
Not a good app
Hannahthecheerlead1 on 3/26/2017
The app is not good you can't watch what you want and there is only about 5 or 6 episodes of what you want to watch and my favorite show Cake Boss isn't on the app. Please Fix!!!!!
Mercy with the commercials people....
Otta meow on 3/25/2017
At first, this app seemed wonderful, but then came the commercials. Really, I understand commercials pay for the app,but, have mercy. When the commercials are more then the actual show, it is time to delete the app!!!
It's good but...
Joshscavs27 on 3/24/2017
For a while the app the was good but suddenly I can't get rid of the closed captioning even if I click the off button
Food Network
Dayshanet6687532455 on 3/18/2017
Excellent App!!
Gave up cable
hannasmom7 on 3/16/2017
We gave up cable, a few months back after realizing that we don't watch it enough. I was looking for a way to watch my fav shows from food network, I don't mind paying a monthly subscription.......Real bummer- not going back to cable or satellite.........
Food network
Delphi34 on 3/10/2017
Love the app.
I like the app but the ads 🙄
Stonerliss on 3/9/2017
Change the ads plays the same one multiple times in a row it's annoying
Can't turn off subtitles
Lynn1223355678 on 3/8/2017
It's kinda annoying that I can read who wins before the judges say it. Needs to be fixed, it's kinda a spoiler alert.
Badappfoodnetwork on 3/8/2017
This app is terrible.
Won't play more than one episode
PjJammin on 3/7/2017
Works terribly with chromecast. After playing one episode it freezes and I have to close out the app and start all over again. Extremely frustrating please fix!!!!!!
Requires TV subscription. What year is it?
GFerrell on 3/6/2017
I can watch episodes free in the browser but the app requires a TV subscription? Stupid.
Bombs A LOT
CaroStrick on 3/5/2017
I enjoy watching "Worst Cooks," even if I have to sit through SO MANY commercials (often there will be the same commercial repeated six times during one break), but the app bombs often. I just watched an ep through Fire TV and the app bombed four times. So frustrating!!!
Coolio226075236 on 3/1/2017
I tried to login in with my tv subscription and it kept rejecting me and then it finally let me in and I couldn't get back!! And then when I finally got out I had to do it again! I would personally just get a different app, you can watch without a TV subscription; but you are limited to about 2 episodes on each season just don't waste the time and the effort! There is major work to be done.
new update not working
Tiacucu on 2/28/2017
Feb 22nd updates put subtitles by default including advertisements, and I can't disable them away, please help....
scotty1977 on 2/27/2017
Awesome to use Easy to understand
So glitchy!
Jpfoster1234 on 2/26/2017
Older seasons would be great and access to all episodes for free. App kept crashing, disappointed.
