Commercials & Missing Episodes
I’ve been really excited to have an option other than cable for a while now. It started out positively strong, but as time has passed the service has changed. There seems to be more commercials now, when a year ago if you scheduled a recording commercials were not forced upon you like today. There are also some glitches where the round of commercials play twice, the app freezes and makes you watch the same commercials again when you resume watching or at the end of an episode there is a commercial break before the credits. Who wants to watch these before moving on?!?
Additionally, if you set a recording, record a full season, in the middle of binge watching the recorded season there are missing episodes. There is no way to get the missing episodes through the app. Frustrating!
Overall a better option than cable, but it would be nice to have some of these issues changed for an app that is paid for, plus the price has gone up about $5/mo in the last year.
Well worth it
Streams very well from mobile and easily connects to capable streaming devices. Love that I can add shows to my recordings directly from my phone. The selection is great, it has every channel I could really want and hits on the major broadcasters and many sports. It’s also nice that it includes local channels so you don’t have to swap to an antenna. I’ve used Sling and PSVue in the past and I feel like YoutubeTV has more/better content for the price. My only complaint is that the live menu does not work on mobile like a traditional cable grid, so you can see the channel and what is currently playing but can’t look at what’s coming up next and hours ahead. This issue only is for mobile though, on a TV app it works just fine. Would recommend you try out this streaming option if you’re trying to decide. Almost forgot that you can add up to 5 people to the account as long as they have gmail, so great to share with family.
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.
