    Way outdated interface beyond basic rarely new content Mar 31, 2021

    By Stev Blackburn
    Where to start, horrible interface, it doesn't even have autoplay. Rarely ever is anything new added. Don't waste your money, just get the regular history channel streaming service
  • I missed this all so very badly! Sep 10, 2019

    By David & Lina
    The very first time that I saw the history channel, when we first got cable television I thought it was the absolute greatest thing ever but ever since then instead of the channel being devoted to its name and living up to its name it’s become a never ending time slot of meaningless shows and programming that has absolutely nothing to do with any type of history, not US History, not world History, not human history just nothing! It’s really sad to know what it once was and see what it has become. This App is exactly what I would expect from the history channel and now that I have it I will never watch it on TV again. It’s awesome because I can even pick and choose my favorite type of History and the period of time that I most like. This is a win win for me and if it weren’t for the rest of my family and the fact that I am living on a disability retirement I would now get rid of cable television and save some money for having to pay for both and be perfectly happy with having this as my entertainment and also at the same time a wonderful opportunity to learn things that I had missed or overlooked in history. Please never stop expanding and reaching for all of History, and all of its many faucets, and uniquenesses. I am completely satisfied. Thank you so very very much.

    I keep getting a Network Connection error and the app does not work. If not resolved soon, I'm canceling my subscription and removing the app. I'm not paying for a service that only works on my computer when it's supposed to be cross-platform. EDIT: The issue has been resolved. Updating rating.

    By GG&HT...F
    These Documentaries are well directed, given high budgets, well researched and professionally edited. It is a pleasure to have these programs at my fingertips any time of the day. I would have given this service 5 stars but for a couple issues. The streaming video player neither allows for viewing in full screen nor the ability to fast forward. Also ( as a historian) , in many of the episodic series’ I find an abundance of the “reality television” genre being used. These “Hardy Boys documentaries” should not be in the “History Channel Vault” as they feel and portray themselves more like a soap opera/drama and not as a legitimate informational documentary. They would be perfect in an app called “History Channel 2 - all new and un-vaulted!”.... Overall, I am glad to pay for this app service, and will continue to do so. It has a large and ever expanding library of films which truly does fulfill my desire to continually expand into personally unexplored of areas of world history.
  • Better all the time Oct 3, 2018

    By Zippy Magee
    I long for when the History Channel had documentaries, and thats what’s in here. I love the content. The app is getting better all the time too. I couldn’t download shows until the last update, thanks for fixing that. Only issue I sometimes see now is the app crashes if you pause a downloaded show. It’s intermittent, but when it happens it forgets where in the show you were. It’s a minor inconvenience. Also, could the app keep track of where I am in a show across devices? I think that should be the next step
  • Lack of Continuity across Devices Mar 31, 2020

    By rpmayfield
    I should begin by stating that I value the content provided by this application. BUT.. I must say that it is close to impossible to search for a desired program. For example: On iOS devices as well as Roku (I’m not a consumer of any other cord-cutting options..with the exception of Apple TV 4K.) The GUI within the Apple TV app is in no way similar to all other points of access to History Vault on iOS devices as well as Roku. Other devices offer a menu feature labeled “Collections” I rather like this feature as it is easy to seek out what i have been watching and continue doing so. My reasoning to gripe is two fold: First, ther is no “Collection” option in the Apple TV app, which makes viewing options difficult to locate. But even more frustrating is the uselessness of the search option within the tvOS app. You can literally type the name of the show you had been watching on an iPhone/iPad/Roku.. and no search results appear. You can’t type the name of the show. If you’re lucky you can type in the name of the episode within the series and it MAY show up. I have found as well that the name of of typed episode must have all the letters correctly capitalized. ?? Again, I enjoy access to the content, but the efficiently of the service would improve infinitely if consistent options were universally available across all digital platforms, as well as some fervent attention to he application’s search capabilities. Thanks for the attention.

    I am still on my free trial but I love History Vault. When I was in high school, A&E was my favorite channel and I remember watching Biography hosted by Jack Perkins and Peter Graves when I came home in the afternoons. I don’t know when it changed but going to reality TV was a mistake, in my opinion, some people might want that but there are still a lot of history and documentary buffs out there. It’s rare to find anything educational on network TV anymore and I am very glad to have discovered this, there is so much to explore. I agree with what others have said in regard to a search feature or some way to set up a favorites list or watch list on iOS as well as the Roku platform. You have it nicely arranged by category but that would make it a little easier. Otherwise, the streaming quality is very good, I look forward to watching all the great content.
  • Love this app Nov 1, 2018

    By Pinoy dancer
    I love this app because I love history. I wish they would continue to add more Presidential history videos. I also wish they didn’t get rid of some of the series. I don’t see “How the States Got Their Shapes” anymore. I’ve been meaning to watch it, but it disappeared. I like that I can “search” specific historical categories. Hope they can add more and keep the videos in the vault and not get rid of them. Thanks! Otherwise, I think it’s a resourceful app! I also hope you can update the “History Here” app. It doesn’t seem to work anymore. I think it stopped working when I updated my iPhone. Thanks for any help with that. Hope someone can update.

    So far it seems pretty solid. It is the old school programs which actually teach you something not just reality tv programming. I'd give it another star if it allowed a favorites list on the app, and if it had an Android TV app.

    By A-W-O-L
    I’ve subscribed to Vault now since nearly the beginning of it’s launch and while I will say that the amount of content has improved, the performance of the app certainly has not. Whether I watch it on my iPad, iPhone, or via my Roku, it crashes regularly. Sometimes I’ll launch the app and the entire home page isn’t visible, and then relaunch and it is again. If I am trying to binge a series and click to the next episode? Crashes and has to re-launch again. With the sheer breadth of apps and ways to watch historical programs available, I expect more from the History Channel if I’m paying the monthly premium.

    Awesome selection of shows so far but doesn't work on a TV. If you ONLY want to watch on your phone worth it. If not dont bother downloading or subscribing to this app. Took it 20 mins to open once on my roku TV then rejects my login information 😡

    LOVE the History Vault streaming service but wish you guys would add a compatible app to Android TV &/OR Chromecast with Google TV. UPDATE: 04-01-2021 Thanks for the reply. :-) However, you didn't address my question. Would love to have an app made for Android TV/Google TV.
  • Useless Dec 24, 2017

    By UserUBT
    The only reason I wanted to download this app and pay for it is to have access to Vikings. The fake you with a documentary called Vikings, not the actual series. Same title, not the same show. I would give this 0 stars if that was possible for the following reasons: 1. We, the consumers, are too stupid to search for shows we want to watch. No search capability. You know, type somethings and you get a list of results. The 1999 technology. Similar comment from another user prompted an idiotic response from the ‘developer’ of this app. It is mind bending. 2. Not one popular show form the History channel. Just go to the history channel app and see what they present, nothing of interest is in the Vault. You would think the Vault would contain all their best shows, wouldn’t you? The Vault, otherwise call it Basement. 3. You pay money for this. This is not a free app so you would not expect only rejected and not so popular shows. Charge us $16 and up if you provide the quality. I would pay and I expect many would pay too. 4. A small list of shows that is not even organized in a logical manner is the only way to interact within this app. The user experience rivals nothing that I can think of since Al Gore invented the internet. Truly horrible with lack of vision and basic understanding of your customer’s needs.

    The Hvault Channel/service is great on Roku TV but the app seems ancient. It's quite bad actually. Can't access your list or basically do anything else connected with your account. Its like a streaming app that was created 5 years ago. Desperately needs to be modernized.

    The app is ok. Has a fantastic selection of documentaries but is a hassle to look through the collections if there's a specific time or place in history I want to watch. Make a categories section.

    By Dan The Driver
    The content and shows are awesome, but the App is terrible. I watch on my Roku at home and after EVERY episode of EVERY show it exits the app completely to the Roku home screen and when you go back in you have to exit again and go back in a 3rd time to get back to the "My List" to watch the next episode of your favorite shows. Getting to the point of not worth it anymore! *UPDATE* Subscription cancelled until the app is fixed. I'm not going to continue to pay for something that's broken.
  • I sure wish it worked! Mar 13, 2019

    By MKieler
    I never take the time to write a negative review- only positive ones. So this is my first, only because I do want this to be resolved so I can enjoy the exciting content your team has worked so hard to produce. I have sent 3 requests for help but only get a generic template response with zero help each time. 1. I signed up and paid. 2. I selected my favorite films to download so i can watch on my many off line travels. 3. None of them download even with super fast WIFI for long period of time. App and brand new iPad open and operating with no sleep on. 4. Now I check again and 5. App crashes almost every time I select “my videos” 6. I delete app and reload it again. 7. It asks me to sign in- I do and it goes to payment page. No options. So I click on payment again- Yes I was actually willing to pay twice in hopes I can view your content. Then I get a message that reads something to the effect that “you already paid” and no other option to move out of that screen. 8. I have a company that builds apps. I’m not educated on the subject but am an investor who has seen many apps during the quality process and for sure we would have never released an app with all of these bugs. 9. Let me know if and when you are seriously interested in helping me. Good luck!

    Exactly what I've always wanted! History channel has been one of my only reasons for keeping a cable subscription(which is gone now) I am truly pleased to have not only a direct subscription to History but also access to ALL the documentaries I've been wanting to watch without being subjugated to hours of Ancient Aliens and Pawn Star re-runs. Please get a version of this app working on smart TVs or game consoles I'd love to not have to stream my phone to the TV as the quality is low.
  • Oldies but goodies! Apr 25, 2020

    By MidNyteMarauder
    I was looking for the documentaries that I grew up watching in the 90's and early 2000's that fueled my natural love of history. If it wasn't for these documentaries I would never know what is beyond my environment and time in history. There's more to explore when it comes to life and the History Channel is what has inspired my curiosity of this world and who we are and were as the human race. I encourage all to indulge in the well crafted shows that explain where we've been. Keep bringing back the classics History Channel.

    By Lindalu80228
    I had no idea how much I would enjoy the programs on History Vault, but I LOVE them! Seriously, they are fascinating. And I pave watched a lot. I watch them on my iPad while putting on makeup in the morning, and in bed at the end of a day. It’s a wonderful way to forget about what’s going on in the world right now, and learn so many interesting things about people, events, periods and more. What a great and unexpected find!

  • History for all Mar 26, 2018

    By Jsmidge
    I think this app should be on every child's lap top, iPhone, or whatever device they are using. I didn't pay attention in my history class, if they had such an app like this back in the day I would have learned so much more and with enthusiasm. I didn't do five stars because the app is in need of an upgrade with a search feature and library or favorites setting. Great job History Vault very informative and most of all I'm enjoying each and every program.
  • App improvement idea Sep 18, 2019

    By Zombies on your farm
    I love that I can watch my favorite history shows without commercials and I hope that eventually all of the shows on the history channel and app will be added. But one thing I would like to have is a favorites list. That way when I open the app I wouldn’t have to scroll through all of the shows to find the one that I’m like looking for. Just an idea, but it may already be in the works for a future update. Thanks you.

    By nicknameydoineedanickname1460
    The app could use some work. I would like the ability to stream it to a tv. I like the content but you do have to pay. I don’t have the history channel at home so for me it’s worth it. Also it needs a easier content search search system, there is a lot of content and it takes a long time to scroll through. Overall I would and have recommended it to friends who enjoy history.

    The app is ok. Has a fantastic selection of documentaries but is a hassle to look through the collections if there's a specific time or place in history I want to watch. Make a categories section.

    The content and shows are awesome, but the App is terrible. I watch on my Roku at home and after EVERY episode of EVERY show it exits the app completely to the Roku home screen and when you go back in you have to exit again and go back in a 3rd time to get back to the "My List" to watch the next episode of your favorite shows. Getting to the point of not worth it anymore! *UPDATE* Subscription cancelled until the app is fixed. I'm not going to continue to pay for something that's broken.

    I have purchased the service through my cable provider but it doesn't give me the option to log in with that. It keeps telling me I have to purchase the service. Why would I pay twice?

    Context is ok but app is terrible. Hard to find material by other than alphabetical. Interface needs to be updated big time. Also, still no way to sync to my directv guide.... 🙄

    Way outdated interface beyond basic rarely new content Mar 31, 2021

    By Stev Blackburn
    Where to start, horrible interface, it doesn't even have autoplay. Rarely ever is anything new added. Don't waste your money, just get the regular history channel streaming service

    Awesome selection of shows so far but doesn't work on a TV. If you ONLY want to watch on your phone worth it. If not dont bother downloading or subscribing to this app. Took it 20 mins to open once on my roku TV then rejects my login information 😡

    LOVE the History Vault streaming service but wish you guys would add a compatible app to Android TV &/OR Chromecast with Google TV. UPDATE: 04-01-2021 Thanks for the reply. :-) However, you didn't address my question. Would love to have an app made for Android TV/Google TV.

    The only reason I wanted to download this app and pay for it is to have access to Vikings. The fake you with a documentary called Vikings, not the actual series. Same title, not the same show. I would give this 0 stars if that was possible for the following reasons: 1. We, the consumers, are too stupid to search for shows we want to watch. No search capability. You know, type somethings and you get a list of results. The 1999 technology. Similar comment from another user prompted an idiotic response from the ‘developer’ of this app. It is mind bending. 2. Not one popular show form the History channel. Just go to the history channel app and see what they present, nothing of interest is in the Vault. You would think the Vault would contain all their best shows, wouldn’t you? The Vault, otherwise call it Basement. 3. You pay money for this. This is not a free app so you would not expect only rejected and not so popular shows. Charge us $16 and up if you provide the quality. I would pay and I expect many would pay too. 4. A small list of shows that is not even organized in a logical manner is the only way to interact within this app. The user experience rivals nothing that I can think of since Al Gore invented the internet. Truly horrible with lack of vision and basic understanding of your customer’s needs.

    The Hvault Channel/service is great on Roku TV but the app seems ancient. It's quite bad actually. Can't access your list or basically do anything else connected with your account. Its like a streaming app that was created 5 years ago. Desperately needs to be modernized.

    I never take the time to write a negative review- only positive ones. So this is my first, only because I do want this to be resolved so I can enjoy the exciting content your team has worked so hard to produce. I have sent 3 requests for help but only get a generic template response with zero help each time. 1. I signed up and paid. 2. I selected my favorite films to download so i can watch on my many off line travels. 3. None of them download even with super fast WIFI for long period of time. App and brand new iPad open and operating with no sleep on. 4. Now I check again and 5. App crashes almost every time I select “my videos” 6. I delete app and reload it again. 7. It asks me to sign in- I do and it goes to payment page. No options. So I click on payment again- Yes I was actually willing to pay twice in hopes I can view your content. Then I get a message that reads something to the effect that “you already paid” and no other option to move out of that screen. 8. I have a company that builds apps. I’m not educated on the subject but am an investor who has seen many apps during the quality process and for sure we would have never released an app with all of these bugs. 9. Let me know if and when you are seriously interested in helping me. Good luck!
  • Portions of each epppy edited out; Not all series or eppys Mar 6, 2021

    By NJacuguy
    UPDATE: Despite all its flaws was going to subscribe for a month or maybe it’s 3 months for $10 promo. However, almost every episode has PORTIONS EDITED OUT. Most happen right after breaks that used to be commercials, but some occur right in the middle of dialogue and take out portions of scenes and even dialogue (if you have subtitles on, you can sometime see a little of what was edited out). Not sure if it’s incompetence or some other strange reason, but it’s VERY annoying and you miss info. ——— Before the History channel became a reality tv channel tailored to one demographic, it actually had a good stable of historical series. Most of them are here. However, some (like Secrets of War) are completely missing. And others, like Megadisasters and many other series, only have like half the episodes for some reason. On the iPad app (with the latest iOS), you can only view s1 of any series. Also, you have to cancel your subscription/trial at least 24 hrs before the last day, something which I’ve not seen before and that’s obviously meant to trick you into subscribing, pretty low. A shame, as I wouldn’t mind rewatching some old series and even in the last 10 yrs they’ve added a few good historical series
  • Won’t even let me log in Mar 26, 2020

    By FrankPousson
    Signed up and got a 7 day free trial, get to the end to finalize, and it said an error had occurred. So I go to check my subscriptions, it shows active, and then I checked my email, nothing from them, not even in the junk folder. So I waited about 24 hours checked everything again, Active, and Nothing. So I canceled it, and before I did i checked to see if I could get support for this issue, and the support FAQ’s sentences were so long, that I couldn’t read the whole thing to be able to make a selection. I really do like History’s older programs about actual history, before pawn stars and american pickers took over the entire line up, and I’m a little disappointed, and would need my trial reimbursed (which in itself will not happen) to even think about trying this again. I’ll go back to Curiosity Stream

    Completely useless. I have tried multiple way to connect to the service but it fails everytime.
  • App Subscriptions such a fraud!! Apr 11, 2020

    By techconnect
    First they tease you with a FREE app, then they tell you it will require a subscription. Then you have to pay monthly, and when you do, you will forget and waste money month after month, then there is no link to get to the programs, and when you find other links they require a other login, and the Apple fingerprint and password doesn’t work, then you cannot login, and then you have to go through “forgot password”, and then you give up in disgust... I wished they would just sell you the movie you wanted to watch, like the used to, but no.... now you have to agree to a ln automatic monthly shake down.. Yuck! Shame on Apple, Shame on History... I will now cancel! You could have sold me multiple movies a month instead of trying to cheat and enslave me...
