Cable Never Again!
When I finally said goodbye to cable, it was so liberating! I started using YouTubeTV shortly after it came out, did the trial thing and was hooked. At that time it was $35 a month, and still is for us early users. As a sports fan, there are plenty of channels to choose from, and when they added MLBtv and NBAtv (at no extra charge) I felt like I had won the lottery! The overall channel selection is good, I don’t watch a lot of television, but when I do I can usually find something on in real time, you can even record shows and watch them at a more convenient time. I’d give it 5 stars if YouTubeTV carried HGTV, that’s the only thing I miss from having cable. Very rarely have I experienced any technical issues, far less actually than I had with cable. So as for me, I’ve been very happy with YouTubeTV and will have cable never again!
Poor App - Nice Service
Why is the app so far behind Netflix and Prime Video???
One of the biggest misses is that there is no progress bar telling you exactly what you have previously watched, Netflix and Prime have this feature. It is also a terrible experience switching between channels or returning to a show you have been watching. I am always having to close the app and restart it to move from show to show and to stream the show I want via Chromecast. If you pause a show do something different on your phone and return, often times the app won't remember you have paused the show and will make you start from the beginning or watch from live so you constantly lose your place. The basic navigation functions of the app don't work as they should.
What's worse is that it has been like this for 12+ months whilst they have increased the prices to include channels I don't even want. Get your act together Google and look at Prime and Netflix and create a stable, functioning app whilst providing more channel selection packages at lower costs.
Pretty amazing technology, but seriously flawed
I was hoping this app would suffice to replace my standard cable television, but unfortunately, I can’t watch an entire episode of anything without a video-killing bug ruining the whole thing. Specifically, about 3/4 of the way through a television series episode, the video glitches and odd things begin to happen: the audio track jumps to the beginning of the episode, the video freezes for a moment and then continues to play under the audio from the beginning. And then the advertisements! Oh goodness! For $50/month, I would expect fewer ads, but there they are every 10 minutes: 2 to 3 ads at a time. And guess what? When you have to close and re-open the app to find your place in the episode you were watching, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. You try to track through to the spot where you left off. The episode starts to play, and then a series of ads immediately kicks in. Missed your spot? More ads. It is infuriating and app breaking. I am using a first-generation iPad Pro, for what it’s worth.
