  • Unique but Lacking here and there

    Like how we scroll through channels on the live menu. But I can never keep track of future programs with this app. Can we get something like a guide? There’s a reason every tv distributor had one, it works.
  • Little support. Won’t log in. Spotty performance

    We got YouTube TV to untether from the high cost of Direct TV. It regularly won’t load on on our iPad/iPhone and Apple TVs. The level of support available to troubleshoot issues is next to nothing and very frustrating. Despite “logging in” with the appropriate account it won’t load and takes us back to the “try it now” page. Ultimately had to resubscribe this time and will have ended up double paying. I will dispute the last month we had the service due to this issue. I am VERY disappointed and won’t recommend this service to people until the log in issues are resolved. VERY FRUSTRATED. In fact this is the first review I’ve ever written on the App Store due to the absolute inability of this app to recognize the account we have.

    Everything is great about it, except for the “try it free” thing is a straight up lie. I wanted to try out multiple services before I decided on one. Imagine my surprise when YouTube went ahead and took $42 dollars out of my account. So instead of trying it for a week and then deciding I guess I’m paying for a month and then never coming back.
  • Why can't I see what's coming on next

    The live view needs help. You can only see what's currently on. Even if it's 9:28pm, you can't tell what's coming on at 9:30. This means you can NEVER see anything from the beginning unless you have it set to record. Which means you never see ANYTHING unless you already know what's available before it comes on. This is horrible!!!! It almost negates the entire purpose of the service. It's makes the service nearly useless! It's so bad that the best thing you can do is to see that something you like is half way off, THEN set it to record, PRAY that it comes on again some time in the future. I want to scream it's so bad.

    I understand that this is a relatively new app and concept... But YouTube isn’t exactly a brick and mortar trying to break into the online game. They also aren’t a mom and pop barely paying the bills to keep the lights on. So when you offer things like lie listing customization, and all it does is let you spend your time customizing only to NOT saw any of it anywhere.... SCREW YOU. Tried it on the app, error. Went online and did it, same old menu with a drop down that says “custom” but that option is greyed out and is unavailable... even though you just spent 2 minutes customizing the list. Of course how could it saw, there is not even an option to “SAVE” on the customization screen when you are done. Basic b*itch rookie bullsh*t. Also, shows that record hang up and you have to click several times to get in and then all of a sudden you’re in and it’s frozen or locked up. And if you a have a FireTV, you have no option of getting your YouTube TV unless you download a 3rd party browser. But have no fear, once you do you can watch the top 3 channels on your live list, because you CAN’T scroll. By don’t worry, remember you can customize that list so at least it’s not their choice of the top 3.... OH WAIT, see the first BS problem I addressed.....YOU CAN’T!!! Again, what are you guys doing?!? Why would a company BORN ONLINE, with endlessly deep pockets charge you $40 a month and NOT have their SH*T together?!

    Upgraded from using TiVo and an antenna which I could never get consistent reception from and I love it. Some slight buffering starting shows but perfect picture and love the unlimited dvr. Once a show goes on demand you have to watch google commercials but overall a great option for cord cutters. I use a roku ultra to stream threw. And my wife is able to figure out how to use it so it isn’t techie.
  • Finally a “cable TV” package us cord-cutters can get behind!! 💯🔥

    Absolutely superb service. Finally a reasonably-priced option for cord-cutters w/o contracts/commitments, fee/surcharge creep, or typical dismal cust svc; all of this w/ the convenience of YouTube’s interface (backed by Google’s massive nationwide data center & network infrastructure.) 5 different accounts are allowed (w/ separate settings, preferences, and cloud DVR content) with up to 3 simultaneous streams. App is still a work in progress - little things like misreporting the name of the next auto-playing title can be a little annoying; but also a few bugs slightly more serious, i.e. occasionally losing play controls on the mobile device screen once a cast is initiated, forcing me to kill the app, reopen it, but then all is well (the stream is never interrupted.) But even w/ these quirks.. it’s still a very intuitive and enjoyable interface. And seeing how hard they’re working on bug fixes, etc. with the extremely regularly app updates (at least on iOS, I’m confident they’re soon gonna get it as close to perfect as possible. After all, they have the talent and resources of GOOGLE for Pete’s sake... so it’s only going to get better, and very quickly too, if I had to guess! I can’t say enough good things about this amazing service... and Oh yeah!! Their Customer Service and Tech Support are just a joy - so refreshing to have such a friendly, helpful, polite and responsive team to talk to when you need help or have questions. Plus, for now at least and in my experience, they seem to be all U.S.-based too! That’s icing on the cake :D

    The interface is more confusing than navigating out of Las Vegas casino!
