  • Way too many commercials Mar 4, 2019

    By Libertylovr
    Love the History channel, hate commercials taking up so much time! Vikings is my fave, can’t get enough, but you see 2 maybe 3 scenes and then boom! you’re bombarded with umpteen commercials! Give us a break! More show, less commercials. It would also be nice to see more historical period pieces like Vikings, as there are many of us who love love love ancient history. Not a big fan of the re-enactment shows though. The History app is great, but there is a lot of black screen and once again, those horrid commercials! When something is first run on TV, advertisers are getting their commercials on at that time. Why do we have to endure the same thing online? There should not be commercials on any shows that are viewed online. It’s advertiser greed. Libertylovr

  • Good, but a few suggestions. Mar 5, 2021

    By Fjddjrd
    I really like that the History channel has decided to join the streaming service community. They have a great variety of pretty much all the shows you see on the History channel through a TV service provider. However, i’m a bit disappointed that you have to have a TV Service provider in order to get any access above the very few select episodes they offer for free. I wish they would follow suit to the other streaming services and offer a monthy, tri-monthy, 1/2 year, or a year’s subscription plan at some rate for those that do not have a TV service provider, but would like access to these shows. With the vast array of streaming services becoming more and more available, I believe it is only a matter of time before streaming services completely take over from TV service provider’s. My family is finding that it is much cheaper to pay for the tailored channels and streaming services we like, often at a much cheaper rate than tv service providers. For that reason, we are trying to do away with our own tv service provider. But the fact that History Live requires you to have a Tv service provider does not make that option readily available to those following this path, or simply unable to have tv service. I believe the history channel would be able to profit much more and attract a greater audience if they offered membership rates (monthly, 3-months, 6-months, 1 year) in addition to the free option already available if you have a tv service provider.

    I can only say that when we studied things like the “Roaring 20’s,The Depression,The Boston Tea Party,The Roman Empire, right on back to when the Dinosaurs roamed the Earth” and we as children could not escape from the exciting things we were being taught, only a lot of the ways we were taught was matter of factly very boring. I really liked it when there was a film, even fact filled documentaries were great. As valuable as a books knowledge can be, they’ll never be as interesting as someone else doing the reading and telling about it. Ever since I can remember and before is how far back my true desire to be next to GOD goes. Now with that being said, Please History Channel Accept My Full Hearted Thankfulness!!!! You Make History Fun!! I Sincerely hope that you continue to be a large part of the knowledge that we seek the most. Knowledge of Ourselves!!!!

    Its fine and conistent. The wost part is every time you restart an episode you've seen, it forgets you already saw all of the commercials up to that point and you have to watch them all again.
  • Great content, annoying app Jun 28, 2020

    By Deliberate Living
    This review is for the tvOS app. No complaints about the shows on History Channel. In the tvOS app they look and sound fine. But the UX in the app is rough and riddled with bugs. 1. Constantly repeats the same show segments after an ad. I suspect this is triggered by the ad insertion system as it only seems to happen after fast forwarding through a show segment (which typically triggers a commercial). This happens a LOT! 2. So many commercials. It is almost unbearable to see the same commercial this many times. Forcing viewers to sit through the same commercial 15 times during an episode is bad business. Binge watching? I hope you’re ok watching a commercial a hundred times or more. 3. Mediocre navigating. I have to work harder than I’d expect to find what I want to watch in this app. 4. I have to log in / activate every other time I launch the tvOS app. Super annoying and time consuming. Multiple AppleTV’s have the same issue. 5. TvOS app doesn’t always remember what episodes I’ve watched so I’m constantly guessing which episode was last viewed. Add to this the issues above with fast forwarding and I’ve spent longer trying to get to the last 5 minutes of an episode than the length of the episode itself. I’m still using the app to binge some of my favorite shows but the bugs and UX issues make it a lot more difficult than it should be.

    I love the content but there is a commercial break about every 6 minutes, that lasts for 4 commercials. It's the same 2 commercials over and over again. Miserable to watch. I understand ads with free content but this is the worst I've seen.

    Worst app of all time. It crashes constantly and isn't capable of resuming an episode where I left off. The interactive ad option is garbage. I select that option and it crashes. Then there is the commercials I have to watch. Sometimes it shows the same commercial five times in a row. Annoying as hell! There should be a commercial free option. This app sucks!

  • Way Way Way Too Many Ads Jun 4, 2019

    By CaptShaun
    Where do I begin? This is the first app I have ever given less than 5 stars. The History App has it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good part is that I can watch the shows I love anytime I want anywhere I want. The bad news is that sometimes the app is glitchy and I have to restart my Apple TV to get it to work properly. The ugliest piece of the puzzle is the exhausting amount of ads as of late. I was completely OK with 3 (often repetitious) ads during each break, but now it has doubled to 6 (often repetitious) ads during the 5 breaks on a 40 min show. After reading recent reviews, I find most customers are feeling the same way I do. However, I do not believe History knows or cares what the viewers want. If the app continues down this path, then I fear that soon it will finally live up to its name and become HISTORY!

    This app is awful. I stream a lot and this is the only app that can never make it through an episode without buffering to no end so I have to stop and get back in, then it’s near impossible to get back to the place you were at—so you have to watch a ton of commercials AGAIN to get back to where you were. It will also freeze for no reason and then the same thing again—-commercials until you can get back to where you were. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries to get back in to watch the show, it’s very frustrating and I often just abandon watching whatever I was watching. What’s the point of ‘signing in’ when shows are not saved and the app does not show what I have watched? No, it is not my ISP. This is a very buggy app. Wait until it’s fixed to download. Why don’t you take a hint from other apps that do this quite well—Netflix comes to mind.

  • Capturing the Minds of Our Younger Generation Mar 3, 2018

    By tltusa
    Capturing history and preserving it for the next generations is what it is all about. If only I had such a TV series like this when I was a young boy I believe I would be standing next to Rick and Marty. My admiration of such conviction is what drives my anticipation for the next episode. I wish our younger generation would have an educational system which would instill such a drive and determination. This series is a credit to the success of the History channel. Trying to solve mysteries and uncovering artifacts is what dreams are all about. Without dreams and aspirations man does not move forward. Keep the struggle for mankind moving forward through the Oak Island and other Templar related series. Keep the legends and intrigue burning dreams into our minds. I am looking forward to winning the sweepstakes!

    I enjoy so many great shows. They have something for everyone. It's really nice that they put the newer shows with the old ones so if you missed last weeks show you can go back and look at it. I love the history channel.

    It gets the job done. Had the app over a month and starting today it stopped having aol the hiccups it used to, that's the reason for the minus 1. It had a lot of issues at first, we'll see what happens from now. Update: It's been a long time and the issues are gone. 5 stars. They fixed it really quick too l, I'm just editing quite late. well done.

    By Thunder Storm Pod Cast
    Apparently I’m suppose to create a review of this app or channel or Shows. It must be extremely difficult to fill a 24/7 channel with shows with an unknown projected budget from Advertising and Payed cable .From that aspect you have to deploy a budget sparingly and support certain project and kill them off if ratings come back unfulfilling .But how long to give each project a chance would be by each shows Budget . If they can not self sustain themselves by ratings and budget you would have to terminate the program. From this aspect I find your channel to be going work . I only enjoy one or two of your shows. project blue book being one of them. Thank you for the entertainment.

    Wishing I could see this without paying because my income is to low for such things. Have no cable at all. The antenna doesn’t get you hardly anything at all. What you do get is just terrible. Can’t believe they would dumb us down this way or at all. We are being influenced by what we see n hear and if you can’t or won’t see n hear you won’t learn anything at all. Our world is based on knowledge and learning for process. How are we to better ourselves without the proper information. Love this channel and miss it dearly. Just found this app and I’m watching what there is free. Thank you for that much. It’s nice and wish it were free for all of it. Commercials are to much to long. Please be considerate about this.

  • Too much commercial Jul 10, 2019

    By Risrichy
    I love History and also love this app, but felt like it too much commercial on the 1 episode. pop up every break time for 3-4 commercials in one break. it made me feel got interrupted more than enjoying. I don’t really mind much for having commercials during the show(maybe 1 break for 1 commercial), but this way is too much to take it. Worse case is sometime, I want to stop and end up with the show. that’s sad because I’m never get bored or want to give up for studying about History, but this app can make me feel on that way. Anyway, thank you for the good stories that you’re sharing.

    I'd give it a full 5 star but I don't like the way the app can't remember you for very long before needing to log back in and even then for some reason I still find some episodes are locked requiring yet another login session of the same credentials. Come on Comcast lighten up, don't be afraid a friend of the subscriber might pick up their device and watch a show for free. You can afford a little free marketing if that's what you're worried about.

  • Love the app, HATE the commercials! Aug 26, 2019

    By Poisonivy1221
    I completely agree with some of the other reviews that I have read here regarding the commercials! I absolutely love the HISTORY app and all the wonderful shows that they provide but the commercials are ridiculous! I can understand throwing one or two in there throughout the show but the amount of commercials is too much! We are viewing online not on live television where the advertisers have already promoted. So that is my one suggestion for making the app better! Thank you for all of your wonderful programming with shows like Alone, Mountain Men, Vikings, The UnXplained and many more!!

    Love the shows but too many commercials and if something goes wrong you lose all of your progress in the show and fast forwarding to catch back up just makes you watch all the commercials in succession over again. Could be better.

    It works to watch for some programs but it gives me trouble on others. Some I can't even watch as it has problems with my cable provider. (I can't get History Vault on my tablet, also on my phone, there is no option to switch to full screen. There used to be...what gives? And yes...I know how to use the full screen option mechanism on my phone. It is on the full screen setting.)

    Used to work fine. Now, it CONSTANTLY buffers and spins. I can stream with any other app just fine. History can't make it 45 seconds (when it actually opens) before the red wheel of purgatory shows up. And the inconsistencies when it comes to ad breaks. Jeez... Aside from the functionality of the app, the content is good. Just a shame I can't watch what I want when and how I want

  • Apple TV app audio doesn’t match video/captions Dec 27, 2020

    By andreasoup
    I can’t speak for the iPhone or iPad apps, but the Apple TV app leaves a lot to desire. Every few minutes of watching The Curse of Oak Island the audio repeats itself and lags behind the video and captioning. In order to fix it, you have to exit the video and start playing again until the same thing happens again moments later. Another frustration is if you choose to watch an interactive ad vs multiple regular ads , the screen doesn’t return to full size and plays the show on about 2/3s of the screen-also only fixable by exiting and replaying the episode. This is especially disappointing since this is a service I pay for. I would love a seamless watching experience please. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

  • So annoying Jul 28, 2020

    By Heyeflier15
    I really like the show Alone. Unfortunately most of the seasons are only on the History App. The app has a TON of commercials throughout each episode. If you ever get off the app halfway through an episode often it’ll forget where you were. That means you have to scrub through and guess where you left off. And guess what, if you scrub through one of the designed commercial breaks looking for where you last were, BAM another commercial. Sometimes you can opt for the 30 second “interactive” commercial. I can get over the annoying Trump ads, but often the interactive part isn’t working and you can’t move forward to your show, even after restarting the app. Definitely the worst streaming app I’ve ever used.

Fix it and I'll change the rating. Update... I am lowering my rGing to one star. I am going to get rid of this app. Nothing at all plays anymore.
