Under designed and biased
by levelhead1248 on 2020/09/23 20:23
The apps itself is poorly designed. It’s not really smooth to use and the app force quits or freezes after a couple hours of streaming. Additionally, the advertisers that they choose to use are politically and fanatically left-leaning.
My go to app
by Tashalynn03 on 2020/09/23 19:01
I have every streaming app on the market. I don’t even know why I keep most of them. Hulu is my go to app. Always something good to watch. They have a lot of shows that are on cable now and so many old shows. The same with movies and their original content never disappoints.
Upgrade with the times
by Justin Axelrod on 2020/09/23 19:00
Please make Hulu where you can watch it in a smaller window while using another app like other streaming services have done with iOS 14
Great app but annoying bug
by Cookie 10101477364333 on 2020/09/23 16:38
I love this app but there is this one bug. It won’t let you pause what your watching in full screen so you have to turn your phone to pause
HORRIBLE
by fnnfnfnfnjcjjjjvjvvjv on 2020/09/23 16:24
This app is so ugly like omg put that feature back the feature that you can watch Hulu when you on another app NOW PLEASE
Episode jumping.
by Viciouslysyd on 2020/09/23 16:00
I love Hulu, but since the last update, it skips to a different episode when I’m only half way through the one I’m watching. It asks if I want to watch credits and if you don’t stop it fast enough, you’re in the middle of the next episode. It doesn’t even start at the beginning. Extremely annoying. I’m all for skipping credits, but it does this HALF way through the current episode.
Very laggy
by Nlsbaks on 2020/09/23 14:49
Love Hulu and it’s content but my god, the app needs work. I rarely have the auto play function work - I have to manually close the full screen, go back to the main page, find the show, scroll to the new episode and hit play. It’s so annoying! There isn’t even a “play next” button for some reason, just go back. I’ve downloaded the new updates each time hoping it’s the fix and it never is.
Why???
by lifewitholivia on 2020/09/23 14:40
It took 2 years to get a skip intro button and 2 days for you to take away Picture in Picture on iPhone. Why??? Being a Hulu subscriber feels like being paid to be constantly mildly annoyed. I pay for fancy Hulu with no commercials. But apparently that’s not enough money for Hulu to allow me the simple pleasure of having a tiny version of my show while I’m doing something else on my phone. Why can’t you let us have one thing, Hulu?
Lack of options
by charzacc on 2020/09/23 14:06
Hi, there is a lack of quality material, even with the HBO Max, and no South Park really?!
Hulu is way better than Netflix
by Shekee#1 on 2020/09/23 11:39
Hulu is amazing
Picture in Picture please Netflix has it for ios14
by Jusnino on 2020/09/23 09:18
Please add Picture in Picture to the app Netflix has it can Hulu please catch up!
App constantly crashes
by Doomsdaydani12 on 2020/09/23 07:46
I can’t believe how bad the app is for such a big company. Can’t get through anything without the app crashing multiple times. Total garbage.
Not compatible w/iPhone anymore
by bellyxbell on 2020/09/23 07:41
Since Hulu did an update it no longer has the same capability specially with Apples new software. You can’t continue where you left off and fast forwarding kills the volume. Please fix
Naruto Shippuden
by Rexy_boi2672 on 2020/09/23 07:26
They need to finish all of the dubs

by Ominous review on 2020/09/23 06:08
So im watching naruto shippuden and i watch it in dub and i noticed at season 3 episode 141 it stops being in dub and i really like the show and i dont like watching in sub so could tou please at least put the rest 3 and all od season 4 in dub.
Phone volume = chromecast volume
by Chad K. on 2020/09/23 05:53
Most of the app works as expected. Great design and layout. Not running into any bugs like other users. BUT Dear developers: Why on earth would you couple the phones volume to the chromecast volume? Did you ever stop to think that maybe people go on their phones while their TV is on? Don’t say it’s a chromecast limitation either, Netflix, YouTube, and Sling all have separate volumes Terrible design decision. I don’t just want to turn up my TV volume either because I’ll forget and the next thing that I watch on the TV that isn’t Hulu is absurdly loud
Lunacy
by HourGlass1995 on 2020/09/23 05:49
I am on a $50 a month plan. I still receive ads. Are you serious, Hulu?
Glitches
by lratosy on 2020/09/23 05:08
Too glitchy, always disconnecting. Also , the menu can be better
Horrible
by hgg hv vgbbvfgv on 2020/09/23 04:37
I understand not having premium comes with ads but Hulu over does it. They let you know where the ads are going to be but if you exit the show during a spot where there are no ads and reopen to start watching again, they play another 90 seconds of ads. If you let the ads play and miss a part so you rewind it, even a second, it’ll play the 90 seconds of ads again. If for some reason Hulu crashed or your app closed, when you go to reopen the app, they play adds again. Too many ads. They really over do it. Trying to force you to pay for their stupid premium.
Latest update lost PIP
by NoAmi4u on 2020/09/23 04:21
Was very excited about PIP with iOS 14. Worked great with the Hulu app, until the app update and PIP is not available
Commercials!
by Steve9394 on 2020/09/23 03:28
Anyone remember when Hulu was free? I’m pretty sure that eventually there was an option to pay for Hulu and skip the ads. Now you get to pay for it and still see the ads.... lots of them. Maybe this is just me but the ads are 2x the volume of the shows as well. So far, I’m enjoying the shows; there are a handful I would be looking forward to. I got this as part of the Disney premium package and so far Hulu is loaded with ads and ESPN+ does not show college ball in my area. Probably won’t keep it the upgrade.
Why?
by OJayne on 2020/09/23 01:05
Why would Hulu tAke away your continue watching tap? Who would want to search for a show or movie that you are watching on their app. Their app use to be very user friendly but now I don’t even want to use it. If you ever do the live I hope you want buffering and commercials none stop. No longer worth the money.
Pause Doesn’t Work
by LauraP225 on 2020/09/23 00:58
From the reviews I updated to ios 14 too late to use PIP before it went away, but my pause and play buttons don’t work anymore. If I need to pause to go read a text in a different screen, I have to exit out completely. When my show paused automatically because I took out my airpods the play button didn’t work either so I had to exit out to get in again so it would play. This seems like pretty basic functionality. I have the ad-free subscription.

by aks_2 on 2020/09/22 23:27
put it back
ios 14 picture in picture
by PlayerPlayer0000 on 2020/09/22 22:50
In a recent update Hulu killed PIP support which is a feature of ios14. This needs to be restored and part of the functionality on Apple TV as well. This was working great until now. I’m exploring alternatives in the meantime. Hope you update it back.
Fix the glitches!!!
by bymomto3 on 2020/09/22 22:36
I have read so many reviews about this problem. Get it together and fix this app. It crashes constantly and I have to uninstall and reinstall all the time. I love the content but I hate battling with the app all the time
PiP
by anon0219 on 2020/09/22 21:53
Bring this back. Loved it and now you took it away
Does not allow Picture on Picture
by bolttennis34 on 2020/09/22 21:25
After troubleshooting for 3 hours this app needs to update its PIP. My wife’s phone works great. This current version of app doesn’t. Hulu should fix it.
Fix the problem
by mafiaking2020 on 2020/09/22 20:31
Fix so we can change the packages. This commercials are driving me crazy. Every 10 min commercials behind commercials.

Continuously < EVERY DAY ~
by toon lover on 2020/09/22 19:41
One of many HULU errors that comes every day::::::: “PTS-207” Then, heaven forbid one has to step away from the room w/the tv is playing, either there’s another one of those error messages or the tv has been turned off-‼️‼️‼️ Stop turning off both my 18 month tv AND 18 month old Firetv ~~~~🥵🤬‼️

Why would you remove PIP? 😑 Will change rating when it comes back.

Missing features
by Bigffhjsd on 2020/09/22 15:20
I would like to be able to upgrade my plan though my phone instead of having to go on to the website. To do anything but watch you have to use the website not the best user experience.
Why PIP canceled?
by Daniel_Wu87 on 2020/09/22 13:15
Why do you deliberately removed the picture in picture function in the latest version 7.9 without notice? Is hulu&#39;s goal keep making user experience worse?

I can’t unpause or pause
by meeerrrry on 2020/09/22 07:18
Why can’t I unpause it pause or fast forward whatever I’m watching while my phone is in landscape? I can pause and unpause when it’s in portrait but I keep mashing the button on landscape mode and it’s not working so when I want to pause the show or movie I’m watching I have to go back to portrait... can this be fixed? (Ps I’m on IOS)
PIP Gone
by Mdigia on 2020/09/22 05:25
Bring back PIP and listen to those paying for the service.
Dropped PIP in iOS 14...
by Fogdor on 2020/09/22 05:16
Boo. Removing features that existed before? What is wrong with you.
Bring back pip or I will cancel
by PorterCa on 2020/09/22 05:03
Hulu is a waste of money and your updates give you less features?!?! I had pip then you updated the app and now it doesn’t work If you don’t fix this I will cancel my subscription.
Bring back PiP
by Nanji on 2020/09/22 04:58
This was the best feature on iOS. Not having it has dramatically reduced the amount of time I spend on the app.
Great service
by michael12345!@#$% on 2020/09/22 04:25
Needs to allow for Picture in picture on iPhones
I LOVE THIS APP but one problem...
by jane (jayna) on 2020/09/22 04:02
I love this app! Just one problem...WHY DOES HERO ACADEMIA HAVE SO MUCH ADS ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY! Everytime I tap my hero academia an pops up even when I skip the intro! It’s really annoying...about every 5 minutes an ad pops up,can you fix this? Or not because I’m stupid? But if ya can I’m begging please do it- ;-;
PIP stopped working
by Monkey_hack on 2020/09/22 03:29
Bring this back. It was the one feature during beta that was an obvious very useful feature. I will cancel subscription if this is not fixed quickly. Live TV and content programming is ubiquitous . I have no problem cancelling and going back to YouTube TV. Another annoyance. I actually got an ad before watching a movie trailer. A trailer!!!
Episodes
by fooball #34 on 2020/09/22 03:07
I love everything the Hulu experience has been Great been with Hulu almost 2 years now and the only thing I don’t like is when a episode has new shows and a new season but Hulu don’t update the shows when they come out . That’s my only problem I watch episodes late because they don’t be on here . But that’s really all
No P.I.P.
by Wegmans on 2020/09/22 02:30
Picture in Picture worked under ios14 beta but not the general release? This was literally the only thing that I used ad-free Hulu for. Now I’ll give this a month to see if an update fixes it, but off not, see you later Hulu!
iOS14 update
by juls62292 on 2020/09/22 02:06
At first the app supported Picture in picture. But then suddenly it doesn&#39;t anymore
Absolutely terrible service in every way.
by 1rritatedcustomer on 2020/09/22 02:02
I pay for no commercials. Still have commercials. It always disconnects from cast. Only will cast on my living room tv. When I called to ask what they could do, after being on hold 20 minutes, they told me it’s my tv. But I have zero problems with Netflix, hbo, Amazon etc. When I asked for some credit for all of the issues I was told I could have $5.00. Get your act together Hulu. You’re the most expensive service I have and you’re the absolute worst. Hands down. If I could give less than one star I would.
So much for that
by cc61 on 2020/09/22 01:36
Why the developer would get rid of picture in picture I don’t know.
PiP
by DEZZAAY on 2020/09/22 01:15
Can y’all add back the picture in picture mode thing? It was working but now it’s not and it was really useful. Just abruptly taking it away was very frustrating but overall i really like the app :)))
No location when I enabled it
by Loki_Septic_Wolf25 on 2020/09/22 01:01

Give us back picture in picture. It worked great during the beta. Why&#39;d you take it away?
Doesnt connect to chrome cast
by oscioscia on 2020/09/22 00:15
I upgraded to Hulu + live TV to watch NFL. The issue is that The Hulu app constantly gets stuck when I’m trying to cast to the Chromecast and never actually plays. It’s wildly frustrating to pay this much for a month of this stupid service and not be able to utilize the feature that lets me watch the game on the TV
No support for now iOS PiP? Why
by CCIPOD on 2020/09/21 22:23
Great app, though why no support for Picture in Picture
Hulu
by AlexAlioto09 on 2020/09/21 22:15
I go lay down in my bed to watch a show and then at the begging there are two separate add reels and in the middle typically the best part there is another add reel and the add reels play the same adds over and over again it’s very annoying. This app would be perfect if it had no adds which personally is why I think Netflix is better than Hulu
Very frustrating when you want to watch a show and it doesn’t sync up and play.
by Snoopy Mc Barry on 2020/09/21 21:59
Great app but can’t get it on my old ipad
Ads
by Amaya N W on 2020/09/21 21:36
Ok yea it was good at first but I just think they have way to many ads like I’m watching my show and I get and ad ok, but 5 minutes later here’s another one... so I just think that the ad’s are pretty annoying.
Same glitches
by dontmatter0110 on 2020/09/21 21:02
How Can you redo the entire app but still have the same glitches you’ve had for about a year. When I’m watching the same shows I like to rewatch it likes to do this thing where it starts the next episode at the end and then keeps doing that over and over and over. Try fixing the errors that occur instead of redoing everything for aesthetics.
Not great with Chromecast
by Maggie Mick on 2020/09/21 20:36
Out of all the streaming services apps, this one connects the worst to chromecast. App shuts down, disconnects from the tv. It’s very frustrating. Other than that, I love the content.
Picture in Picture stopped working.
by Darcyjwcc on 2020/09/21 20:31
With the new iOS 14 update Hulu had a PIP option and now it is gone???
Quit with the updates already
by anyuser9999 on 2020/09/21 20:18
Every time you update something you break something. This was working great with the picture in picture for iOS 14 for one day and now it’s not working. Plus you keep changing the format the way you view your channel lineup etc. Any way that picture picture is going to be put back in place?
There Really Good.
by Fred Flintstone2015 on 2020/09/21 20:11
I See This Streaming Service Getting Way More Interesting Than Netflix’s Ever Was.
Picture in Picture not working?!

Pip not working
by Theipodmaster on 2020/09/21 18:47
Used to be my go to app for watching TV but now the PIP stopped working.... they finally make it available on iPhone and worked for a couple days now nada.👎
Bring back Picture in Picture
by the fingerboard man on 2020/09/21 18:41
Ive been using iOS 14 since the beta was released, and really liked the Picture in Picture feature, but they got rid of it in the last update. Please bring it back
Terrible app
by spolesku on 2020/09/21 18:28
This app is terrible, it never remembers where I left off. If I pause a show for 5 minutes while casting I press play and it plays 2 episodes before that I already watched. When casting it doesn’t allow separate volume like HBO, it’ll effect the volume in my other apps while casting.
Bruh

by Argm09 on 2020/09/21 14:52
For whatever reason after yesterday’s update (September 20, 2020) the Picture in Picture option for iOS 14 disappeared and doesn’t work anymore... pretty disappointing since I had started to get used to it.
Anime and dubbing issues
by Mr. Union on 2020/09/21 14:39
I’m a little sad that some of my favorite anime isn’t fully dubbed like it would normally be, such as fairy tail. It stops dubbing up until the very last season which is fairly annoying

Can you guys get the new Picture in Picture mode to work with your app?!!! That would be awesome!!
Why can’t I skip adds?

BRING BACK PIP
by nickname i s nickname on 2020/09/21 05:37
Pretty upset PIP was removed. I didn’t even have automatic updates set up and I did not manually update the app. This is honestly making me consider deleting the app and cancelling my subscription. Bring back PIP!!!

by puglife4sho on 2020/09/21 05:17
its good and all till you get a 2 minute ad... unskippable. also got 5 ads all 2 minutes in just 1 video.. fix this
What a joke.
by Bring back PiP on 2020/09/21 05:00
With all the ads this should be free already but the fact that you take out the PiP feature is just ridiculous. You guys are the most greedy company that I’ve seen.

Bugs, bugs bugs

I’m really getting fed up with the streaming with this app.. freezing screens, having to reboot to get it started, multiple error messages. Time to look at their competitors.
Minus 5 stars. It made me give it a star

This was once a great app until last week. It kept asking me for my location, which I kept allowing access to. However it kept telling me it couldn’t find my location, so I wasn’t allowed to watch anything. Finally tonight I was able to watch a show, but only for about 30 seconds. After which it went to a commercial, then back to the show, then commercial again and so on. I pay for this service. This is unacceptable!
Nothing good
by Daniel Kolesnyk on 2020/09/21 03:52
It has almost nothing to watch, all the good stuff is locked behind ad ons which you have to pay extra for, everything that is on Hulu you can find for free episodes on YouTube and half the shows don’t even have all the seasons available. The add ons are the worst part though since all the good movies are locked behind some “showtime” or “hbo” add on. It’s like the EA of streaming services
Please PLEASE
by TxHogg on 2020/09/21 02:32
So every single time I’ve typed in “whatever movie” where to watch on my browser Hulu with come up, with subscription of coarse. And so far every single time I tap to watch that movie on Hulu, that it said was available I come to find that it’s “currently unavailable”...on Hulu. The streaming has got much better but now this.
I can’t even watch
by candii wysteria on 2020/09/21 02:17
I bought full on premium just to watch ONE movie. It wouldn’t even let me do that.
App WILL NOT OPEN
by Mr.Sails on 2020/09/21 02:13
IM not sure what’s been going on past couple days but it keep foreclosing on me when I open it.
Ad Nightmare Don’t Bother
by StephenBerger on 2020/09/21 02:02
Hulu live, plays 70 second ads. Your video crashes, frequently. This app is incredibly unstable. You get “Error We’re having trouble playing this title” about every-other commercial break. I will be cancelling my free subscription. Just pay for cable. At least you can keep watching a show, after the commercial break. On top of that, there WAY too many ads. This is a scam and out of control. They’re also placed carelessly, throughout whatever you’re watching. You can’t skip back to piece together, whatever scene is bisected; it’ll restart the ads. The first paid television ad, was in 1941. After nearly 80 years, Hulu can’t figure it out. This process must have been rushed. Also, you’re previously ad free shows, have ads. So. Here’s the bottom line. You’re paying almost $60.00 a month, to watch commercials. You can not finish a show, without closing the app and restarting. Sometimes that doesn’t even work. Here’s a fun fact: You have to sit through the ads again, after a restart. So if it takes 3 times.... You was 70seconds of ads, followed by an additional 210 seconds. Then the normal ad breaks, followed by the next time it crashes. Ad time total, for a 20 minute TV show, with crashes: 660 seconds. That’s more than a 1 hour program, on cable. Please don’t make the mistake I did.
Ads make it not worth the buy.
by B1264825 on 2020/09/21 01:41
In a show that is 22 minutes long there is 8 minutes of ads. It’s definitely not worth buying the regular subscription with ads. Stream quality is good as well as good selection of shows but the sheer amount of ads i have to watch is a huge turn off. Will be sticking with netflix and amazon video for now.
Separate the iphone’s volume from the app
by tylerarcadefire on 2020/09/21 01:39
Every time I use this app to watch shows on chromecast, the volume of my iphone = the volume of the app casting on my tv. Terribly annoying bug. Please stop doing this.
Goodnuf, but want more.
by Guvlem on 2018/11/03 17:10
I like the new layout. It’s easy to see him swipe through things. That said I don’t coming to contact with things that are outside the normal suggestions as often. That’s both good and bad, because I’m not exposed to some of what’s available Biggest concern is that after I’m done playing something the next thing auto plays and adds itself to my keep watching list. There are four things show up on my keep watching list that I don’t even want. I have to keep removing them, and they track my progress. This is a real issue because I’ve never watched these things on my own, and they usually play if I fell asleep or left it running for some reason
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference &amp; the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don&#39;t normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn&#39;t get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can&#39;t just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren&#39;t mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we&#39;ll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Well made app for the most part
by JoeFlyer1234 on 2020/07/02 16:46
For a mobile app it’s done quite nice, in my opinion easier and quicker to use than something like the mobile Netflix app. However there are some strange caveats. The app sometimes whites out (on my home screen the app will be there but the logo disappears and I can’t even load the app by clicking on it). This usually resolves itself after a bit. This is the only app I have that exhibits this behavior. Additionally, if you’re watching a show and lose internet connection, especially during an ad, the episode might start from the beginning when you get back to a good connection. It’s happened to me once and I’ll see if it happens again. Other than those two bugs it’s been a pretty smooth experience.
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I&#39;m the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it&#39;s to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your &#34;swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards&#34; function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Crashes and requires reinstalling after every updates
by hulu-user2 on 2020/07/13 07:35
I always know when there has been an update because the app never fails to crash mid-episode after one. The worse part is that it usually crashes right after a commercial break so when I get the app back up and running and resume the episode I have to sit through another minute of the same commercials. Simply closing the app after an update does not fix the problem. It requires me to delete the app from my device and reinstall. It’s ridiculously inconvenient and annoying. Please fix this. If I didn’t get such a good deal on my subscription, I probably would have cancelled it because of this issue. Besides this inconvenience every two weeks to a month the app does what it needs to do and is easy to navigate.
Horrible streaming/improved but still issues
by the amazing flying vega on 2020/04/27 17:39
$15 a month for no commercials. Yet my video stops multiple times to tell me, Sorry, an error has occurred while streaming this video. We apologize for any inconvenience. Yeah thanks. It also doesn&#39;t resume videos from all devices. Save your money and skip unless you&#39;re desperate. Update: streaming is better now but there are still issues with the app. It’s constantly disconnecting from my phone. It still plays on the tv but I have reconnected to pause etc. other super annoying thing, once you’re show is finished it auto plays suggested shows not in your queue. This is super annoying when it’s a show you don’t want to watch. It used to skip to something in your queue which makes sense. Suggested shows should be somewhere else.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says &#34;something is wrong: try again.&#34; Extremely frustrating. I&#39;ve tried reinstalling and updating it, and it&#39;s the same problem. It won&#39;t work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I&#39;d be interested in, but now it&#39;s not as intuitive, and it&#39;s more difficult to quickly find things.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it&#39;s gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you&#39;ve finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It&#39;s so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it&#39;s not so easy to trigger.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I&#39;m very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They&#39;re always missing seasons unless it&#39;s a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn&#39;t all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we&#39;re supposed to be able to &#34;catch up on all our favorite shows&#34;. This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN&#39;T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
The worst app I’ve ever used
by CkBailey8816 on 2020/08/04 02:47
Seriously where do I start with how garbage this app is both on my computer and phone. I honestly hate this app with a passion which is the only reason I’m writing this review. It will start playing randomly when you leave it open. Just logged me off for no reason whatsoever. Terrible interface when selecting shows or trying to find the show you were previously watching. I guess you have to log in ever 30 days just to still get live TV WHICH IS SOMETHING I PAY EXTRA FOR ALREADY. There is no way to switch between live shows like just pressing a ‘last’ button. If you skip around a show because the app sometimes doesn’t save your place it’ll make you rewatch commercials you just saw. Truly one of the worst apps I’ve ever used which is hard to do. Especially coming from such a major company. If I didn’t pay for the service I would get rid of it in a heartbeat.
It’s awesome but has some cons
by hedeejejbcdh on 2020/06/15 02:33
Ok this app is amazing but here are some cons a lot of the time when I press on the app it just turns off and I tried powering off my phone two times it still didn’t work :( and it sometimes turns off while I’m trying to watch a show and when I go back on it. It also rewinds a bit :(also it needs to add season 2 of 911 :( because if you try watching season 3 with out watching season 2 you will be completely lost:( also sometimes it puts me on a different spot on a episode of a show than where I was on that episode :( but I do like all the variety of shows and movies it has :) although I talked a lot of bad on this review it overall is a amazing at app! And these are just my opinions :3
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix
News subscriber
by Ranget1 on 2019/07/31 16:14
Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn&#39;t think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it&#39;s pretty, but the &#34;Home&#34; tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. &#34;My stuff&#34; tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app&#39;s poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for &#34;episodes&#34;, but unless you know better, &#34;seasons&#34; is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change &#34;episodes&#34; into a &#34;seasons&#34; button or something of the sort. However this won&#39;t change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.

Under designed and biased
by levelhead1248 on 2020/09/23 20:23
The apps itself is poorly designed. It’s not really smooth to use and the app force quits or freezes after a couple hours of streaming. Additionally, the advertisers that they choose to use are politically and fanatically left-leaning.
My go to app
by Tashalynn03 on 2020/09/23 19:01
I have every streaming app on the market. I don’t even know why I keep most of them. Hulu is my go to app. Always something good to watch. They have a lot of shows that are on cable now and so many old shows. The same with movies and their original content never disappoints.
Upgrade with the times
by Justin Axelrod on 2020/09/23 19:00
Please make Hulu where you can watch it in a smaller window while using another app like other streaming services have done with iOS 14
Great app but annoying bug
by Cookie 10101477364333 on 2020/09/23 16:38
I love this app but there is this one bug. It won’t let you pause what your watching in full screen so you have to turn your phone to pause
HORRIBLE
by fnnfnfnfnjcjjjjvjvvjv on 2020/09/23 16:24
This app is so ugly like omg put that feature back the feature that you can watch Hulu when you on another app NOW PLEASE
Episode jumping.
by Viciouslysyd on 2020/09/23 16:00
I love Hulu, but since the last update, it skips to a different episode when I’m only half way through the one I’m watching. It asks if I want to watch credits and if you don’t stop it fast enough, you’re in the middle of the next episode. It doesn’t even start at the beginning. Extremely annoying. I’m all for skipping credits, but it does this HALF way through the current episode.
Very laggy
by Nlsbaks on 2020/09/23 14:49
Love Hulu and it’s content but my god, the app needs work. I rarely have the auto play function work - I have to manually close the full screen, go back to the main page, find the show, scroll to the new episode and hit play. It’s so annoying! There isn’t even a “play next” button for some reason, just go back. I’ve downloaded the new updates each time hoping it’s the fix and it never is.
Why???
by lifewitholivia on 2020/09/23 14:40
It took 2 years to get a skip intro button and 2 days for you to take away Picture in Picture on iPhone. Why??? Being a Hulu subscriber feels like being paid to be constantly mildly annoyed. I pay for fancy Hulu with no commercials. But apparently that’s not enough money for Hulu to allow me the simple pleasure of having a tiny version of my show while I’m doing something else on my phone. Why can’t you let us have one thing, Hulu?
Lack of options
by charzacc on 2020/09/23 14:06
Hi, there is a lack of quality material, even with the HBO Max, and no South Park really?!
Hulu is way better than Netflix

Please add Picture in Picture to the app Netflix has it can Hulu please catch up!
App constantly crashes
by Doomsdaydani12 on 2020/09/23 07:46
I can’t believe how bad the app is for such a big company. Can’t get through anything without the app crashing multiple times. Total garbage.
Not compatible w/iPhone anymore
by bellyxbell on 2020/09/23 07:41
Since Hulu did an update it no longer has the same capability specially with Apples new software. You can’t continue where you left off and fast forwarding kills the volume. Please fix

Phone volume = chromecast volume
by Chad K. on 2020/09/23 05:53
Most of the app works as expected. Great design and layout. Not running into any bugs like other users. BUT Dear developers: Why on earth would you couple the phones volume to the chromecast volume? Did you ever stop to think that maybe people go on their phones while their TV is on? Don’t say it’s a chromecast limitation either, Netflix, YouTube, and Sling all have separate volumes Terrible design decision. I don’t just want to turn up my TV volume either because I’ll forget and the next thing that I watch on the TV that isn’t Hulu is absurdly loud
Lunacy
by HourGlass1995 on 2020/09/23 05:49
I am on a $50 a month plan. I still receive ads. Are you serious, Hulu?
Glitches
by lratosy on 2020/09/23 05:08
Too glitchy, always disconnecting. Also , the menu can be better
Horrible
by hgg hv vgbbvfgv on 2020/09/23 04:37
I understand not having premium comes with ads but Hulu over does it. They let you know where the ads are going to be but if you exit the show during a spot where there are no ads and reopen to start watching again, they play another 90 seconds of ads. If you let the ads play and miss a part so you rewind it, even a second, it’ll play the 90 seconds of ads again. If for some reason Hulu crashed or your app closed, when you go to reopen the app, they play adds again. Too many ads. They really over do it. Trying to force you to pay for their stupid premium.
Latest update lost PIP
by NoAmi4u on 2020/09/23 04:21
Was very excited about PIP with iOS 14. Worked great with the Hulu app, until the app update and PIP is not available
Commercials!
by Steve9394 on 2020/09/23 03:28
Anyone remember when Hulu was free? I’m pretty sure that eventually there was an option to pay for Hulu and skip the ads. Now you get to pay for it and still see the ads.... lots of them. Maybe this is just me but the ads are 2x the volume of the shows as well. So far, I’m enjoying the shows; there are a handful I would be looking forward to. I got this as part of the Disney premium package and so far Hulu is loaded with ads and ESPN+ does not show college ball in my area. Probably won’t keep it the upgrade.
Why?
by OJayne on 2020/09/23 01:05
Why would Hulu tAke away your continue watching tap? Who would want to search for a show or movie that you are watching on their app. Their app use to be very user friendly but now I don’t even want to use it. If you ever do the live I hope you want buffering and commercials none stop. No longer worth the money.
Pause Doesn’t Work
by LauraP225 on 2020/09/23 00:58
From the reviews I updated to ios 14 too late to use PIP before it went away, but my pause and play buttons don’t work anymore. If I need to pause to go read a text in a different screen, I have to exit out completely. When my show paused automatically because I took out my airpods the play button didn’t work either so I had to exit out to get in again so it would play. This seems like pretty basic functionality. I have the ad-free subscription.

by PlayerPlayer0000 on 2020/09/22 22:50
In a recent update Hulu killed PIP support which is a feature of ios14. This needs to be restored and part of the functionality on Apple TV as well. This was working great until now. I’m exploring alternatives in the meantime. Hope you update it back.
Fix the glitches!!!
by bymomto3 on 2020/09/22 22:36
I have read so many reviews about this problem. Get it together and fix this app. It crashes constantly and I have to uninstall and reinstall all the time. I love the content but I hate battling with the app all the time

Does not allow Picture on Picture
by bolttennis34 on 2020/09/22 21:25
After troubleshooting for 3 hours this app needs to update its PIP. My wife’s phone works great. This current version of app doesn’t. Hulu should fix it.

Why PIP canceled?
by Daniel_Wu87 on 2020/09/22 13:15
Why do you deliberately removed the picture in picture function in the latest version 7.9 without notice? Is hulu&#39;s goal keep making user experience worse?

Why can’t I unpause it pause or fast forward whatever I’m watching while my phone is in landscape? I can pause and unpause when it’s in portrait but I keep mashing the button on landscape mode and it’s not working so when I want to pause the show or movie I’m watching I have to go back to portrait... can this be fixed? (Ps I’m on IOS)

I love this app! Just one problem...WHY DOES HERO ACADEMIA HAVE SO MUCH ADS ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY! Everytime I tap my hero academia an pops up even when I skip the intro! It’s really annoying...about every 5 minutes an ad pops up,can you fix this? Or not because I’m stupid? But if ya can I’m begging please do it- ;-;
PIP stopped working
by Monkey_hack on 2020/09/22 03:29
Bring this back. It was the one feature during beta that was an obvious very useful feature. I will cancel subscription if this is not fixed quickly. Live TV and content programming is ubiquitous . I have no problem cancelling and going back to YouTube TV. Another annoyance. I actually got an ad before watching a movie trailer. A trailer!!!
Episodes
by fooball #34 on 2020/09/22 03:07
I love everything the Hulu experience has been Great been with Hulu almost 2 years now and the only thing I don’t like is when a episode has new shows and a new season but Hulu don’t update the shows when they come out . That’s my only problem I watch episodes late because they don’t be on here . But that’s really all
No P.I.P.
by Wegmans on 2020/09/22 02:30
Picture in Picture worked under ios14 beta but not the general release? This was literally the only thing that I used ad-free Hulu for. Now I’ll give this a month to see if an update fixes it, but off not, see you later Hulu!
iOS14 update
by juls62292 on 2020/09/22 02:06
At first the app supported Picture in picture. But then suddenly it doesn&#39;t anymore
Absolutely terrible service in every way.
by 1rritatedcustomer on 2020/09/22 02:02
I pay for no commercials. Still have commercials. It always disconnects from cast. Only will cast on my living room tv. When I called to ask what they could do, after being on hold 20 minutes, they told me it’s my tv. But I have zero problems with Netflix, hbo, Amazon etc. When I asked for some credit for all of the issues I was told I could have $5.00. Get your act together Hulu. You’re the most expensive service I have and you’re the absolute worst. Hands down. If I could give less than one star I would.
So much for that

by oscioscia on 2020/09/22 00:15
I upgraded to Hulu + live TV to watch NFL. The issue is that The Hulu app constantly gets stuck when I’m trying to cast to the Chromecast and never actually plays. It’s wildly frustrating to pay this much for a month of this stupid service and not be able to utilize the feature that lets me watch the game on the TV

by AlexAlioto09 on 2020/09/21 22:15
I go lay down in my bed to watch a show and then at the begging there are two separate add reels and in the middle typically the best part there is another add reel and the add reels play the same adds over and over again it’s very annoying. This app would be perfect if it had no adds which personally is why I think Netflix is better than Hulu

Same glitches
by dontmatter0110 on 2020/09/21 21:02
How Can you redo the entire app but still have the same glitches you’ve had for about a year. When I’m watching the same shows I like to rewatch it likes to do this thing where it starts the next episode at the end and then keeps doing that over and over and over. Try fixing the errors that occur instead of redoing everything for aesthetics.
Not great with Chromecast
by Maggie Mick on 2020/09/21 20:36

Every time you update something you break something. This was working great with the picture in picture for iOS 14 for one day and now it’s not working. Plus you keep changing the format the way you view your channel lineup etc. Any way that picture picture is going to be put back in place?

Terrible app
by spolesku on 2020/09/21 18:28
This app is terrible, it never remembers where I left off. If I pause a show for 5 minutes while casting I press play and it plays 2 episodes before that I already watched. When casting it doesn’t allow separate volume like HBO, it’ll effect the volume in my other apps while casting.

Anime and dubbing issues

Minus 5 stars. It made me give it a star
by mama bear not happy on 2020/09/21 04:08
This was once a great app until last week. It kept asking me for my location, which I kept allowing access to. However it kept telling me it couldn’t find my location, so I wasn’t allowed to watch anything. Finally tonight I was able to watch a show, but only for about 30 seconds. After which it went to a commercial, then back to the show, then commercial again and so on. I pay for this service. This is unacceptable!
Nothing good
by Daniel Kolesnyk on 2020/09/21 03:52
It has almost nothing to watch, all the good stuff is locked behind ad ons which you have to pay extra for, everything that is on Hulu you can find for free episodes on YouTube and half the shows don’t even have all the seasons available. The add ons are the worst part though since all the good movies are locked behind some “showtime” or “hbo” add on. It’s like the EA of streaming services
Please PLEASE
by TxHogg on 2020/09/21 02:32
So every single time I’ve typed in “whatever movie” where to watch on my browser Hulu with come up, with subscription of coarse. And so far every single time I tap to watch that movie on Hulu, that it said was available I come to find that it’s “currently unavailable”...on Hulu. The streaming has got much better but now this.

Ad Nightmare Don’t Bother
by StephenBerger on 2020/09/21 02:02
Hulu live, plays 70 second ads. Your video crashes, frequently. This app is incredibly unstable. You get “Error We’re having trouble playing this title” about every-other commercial break. I will be cancelling my free subscription. Just pay for cable. At least you can keep watching a show, after the commercial break. On top of that, there WAY too many ads. This is a scam and out of control. They’re also placed carelessly, throughout whatever you’re watching. You can’t skip back to piece together, whatever scene is bisected; it’ll restart the ads. The first paid television ad, was in 1941. After nearly 80 years, Hulu can’t figure it out. This process must have been rushed. Also, you’re previously ad free shows, have ads. So. Here’s the bottom line. You’re paying almost $60.00 a month, to watch commercials. You can not finish a show, without closing the app and restarting. Sometimes that doesn’t even work. Here’s a fun fact: You have to sit through the ads again, after a restart. So if it takes 3 times.... You was 70seconds of ads, followed by an additional 210 seconds. Then the normal ad breaks, followed by the next time it crashes. Ad time total, for a 20 minute TV show, with crashes: 660 seconds. That’s more than a 1 hour program, on cable. Please don’t make the mistake I did.
Ads make it not worth the buy.
by B1264825 on 2020/09/21 01:41
In a show that is 22 minutes long there is 8 minutes of ads. It’s definitely not worth buying the regular subscription with ads. Stream quality is good as well as good selection of shows but the sheer amount of ads i have to watch is a huge turn off. Will be sticking with netflix and amazon video for now.
Separate the iphone’s volume from the app
by tylerarcadefire on 2020/09/21 01:39
Every time I use this app to watch shows on chromecast, the volume of my iphone = the volume of the app casting on my tv. Terribly annoying bug. Please stop doing this.
Goodnuf, but want more.
by Guvlem on 2018/11/03 17:10
I like the new layout. It’s easy to see him swipe through things. That said I don’t coming to contact with things that are outside the normal suggestions as often. That’s both good and bad, because I’m not exposed to some of what’s available Biggest concern is that after I’m done playing something the next thing auto plays and adds itself to my keep watching list. There are four things show up on my keep watching list that I don’t even want. I have to keep removing them, and they track my progress. This is a real issue because I’ve never watched these things on my own, and they usually play if I fell asleep or left it running for some reason
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference &amp; the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don&#39;t normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn&#39;t get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can&#39;t just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren&#39;t mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we&#39;ll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Well made app for the most part
by JoeFlyer1234 on 2020/07/02 16:46
For a mobile app it’s done quite nice, in my opinion easier and quicker to use than something like the mobile Netflix app. However there are some strange caveats. The app sometimes whites out (on my home screen the app will be there but the logo disappears and I can’t even load the app by clicking on it). This usually resolves itself after a bit. This is the only app I have that exhibits this behavior. Additionally, if you’re watching a show and lose internet connection, especially during an ad, the episode might start from the beginning when you get back to a good connection. It’s happened to me once and I’ll see if it happens again. Other than those two bugs it’s been a pretty smooth experience.
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I&#39;m the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it&#39;s to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your &#34;swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards&#34; function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Crashes and requires reinstalling after every updates
by hulu-user2 on 2020/07/13 07:35
I always know when there has been an update because the app never fails to crash mid-episode after one. The worse part is that it usually crashes right after a commercial break so when I get the app back up and running and resume the episode I have to sit through another minute of the same commercials. Simply closing the app after an update does not fix the problem. It requires me to delete the app from my device and reinstall. It’s ridiculously inconvenient and annoying. Please fix this. If I didn’t get such a good deal on my subscription, I probably would have cancelled it because of this issue. Besides this inconvenience every two weeks to a month the app does what it needs to do and is easy to navigate.
Horrible streaming/improved but still issues
by the amazing flying vega on 2020/04/27 17:39
$15 a month for no commercials. Yet my video stops multiple times to tell me, Sorry, an error has occurred while streaming this video. We apologize for any inconvenience. Yeah thanks. It also doesn&#39;t resume videos from all devices. Save your money and skip unless you&#39;re desperate. Update: streaming is better now but there are still issues with the app. It’s constantly disconnecting from my phone. It still plays on the tv but I have reconnected to pause etc. other super annoying thing, once you’re show is finished it auto plays suggested shows not in your queue. This is super annoying when it’s a show you don’t want to watch. It used to skip to something in your queue which makes sense. Suggested shows should be somewhere else.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says &#34;something is wrong: try again.&#34; Extremely frustrating. I&#39;ve tried reinstalling and updating it, and it&#39;s the same problem. It won&#39;t work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I&#39;d be interested in, but now it&#39;s not as intuitive, and it&#39;s more difficult to quickly find things.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it&#39;s gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you&#39;ve finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It&#39;s so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it&#39;s not so easy to trigger.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I&#39;m very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They&#39;re always missing seasons unless it&#39;s a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn&#39;t all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we&#39;re supposed to be able to &#34;catch up on all our favorite shows&#34;. This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN&#39;T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
The worst app I’ve ever used
by CkBailey8816 on 2020/08/04 02:47
Seriously where do I start with how garbage this app is both on my computer and phone. I honestly hate this app with a passion which is the only reason I’m writing this review. It will start playing randomly when you leave it open. Just logged me off for no reason whatsoever. Terrible interface when selecting shows or trying to find the show you were previously watching. I guess you have to log in ever 30 days just to still get live TV WHICH IS SOMETHING I PAY EXTRA FOR ALREADY. There is no way to switch between live shows like just pressing a ‘last’ button. If you skip around a show because the app sometimes doesn’t save your place it’ll make you rewatch commercials you just saw. Truly one of the worst apps I’ve ever used which is hard to do. Especially coming from such a major company. If I didn’t pay for the service I would get rid of it in a heartbeat.
It’s awesome but has some cons
by hedeejejbcdh on 2020/06/15 02:33
Ok this app is amazing but here are some cons a lot of the time when I press on the app it just turns off and I tried powering off my phone two times it still didn’t work :( and it sometimes turns off while I’m trying to watch a show and when I go back on it. It also rewinds a bit :(also it needs to add season 2 of 911 :( because if you try watching season 3 with out watching season 2 you will be completely lost:( also sometimes it puts me on a different spot on a episode of a show than where I was on that episode :( but I do like all the variety of shows and movies it has :) although I talked a lot of bad on this review it overall is a amazing at app! And these are just my opinions :3
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix

Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn&#39;t think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it&#39;s pretty, but the &#34;Home&#34; tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. &#34;My stuff&#34; tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app&#39;s poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for &#34;episodes&#34;, but unless you know better, &#34;seasons&#34; is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change &#34;episodes&#34; into a &#34;seasons&#34; button or something of the sort. However this won&#39;t change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
