    Way outdated interface beyond basic rarely new content Mar 31, 2021

    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
  • Finally REAL History! Apr 9, 2020

    By Auntzukie
    I can’t tell you how much I enjoy being able to watch high production historical documentaries! In my opinion, for those people who originally, the History Channel when it was first added to cable, became one of their favorite channels, this is worth paying extra. Although, my husband and I enjoy some of the reality programs, such as Pickers, most of them are don’t do a thing for me, and it is somewhat sad that the as cable channels are having to do more original programming and reality shows seem to be the most cost effective way of ensuring they get a slice of the advertising dollars, we are losing much quality viewing from the non-premium channels. The only thing I would suggest is that new content be added on a quicker basis. For documentary addicts like myself, we have viewed a lot of the videos already, with multiple viewings of some of my favorites! Just as a quick addition, when I first joined, I had run into some billing and access issues, which they resolved fairly painlessly for me. So, if that has been anyone else’s experience, it’s worth it to stick with them.
  • 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.

    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

  • 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.
  • Content is improving, App performance is not. Dec 31, 2020

    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.

    missing so much classic history channel shows. With such amazing shows from back in the day like Tales of the gun, In search of history, Save our history and Historys mysterys. Yes I know HM is just in seach of history with a new intro but still love it. I can care less about pawn stars and Aliens. Please add full seasons of the shows that made you guys who you are. Its sad to see how far the history channel has fallen.
  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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.
  • My favorite app hands down May 1, 2020

    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.
  • Like it but you gotta pay. Sep 30, 2019

    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.

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.

    You think that streaming services would have downloads so you can watch them instead of using your data? At the end of this year my subscription will run out. If I can't download then I'm out

    Skip skip skip and constantly repeats sections of episodes. Developer has never done anything to fix app video play issues

    The content is interesting, albeit fairly dated but the app is terrible! It's definitely not up to par for a paid subscription. No access to your list across devices; no ability to download for offline viewing; app freezes if left open and tablet goes into standby and the only way to resume is to close and relaunch. I no longer have access to A&E or History after cord cutting and I'd hoped this would be the solution. It is not.

    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

    missing so much classic history channel shows. With such amazing shows from back in the day like Tales of the gun, In search of history, Save our history and Historys mysterys. Yes I know HM is just in seach of history with a new intro but still love it. I can care less about pawn stars and Aliens. Please add full seasons of the shows that made you guys who you are. Its sad to see how far the history channel has fallen.

    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.

    Can't Access the app due to receiving an Error for the App not having internet connection. I have cleaned my memory, cleaned caches, deleted the app (several times) with re-installing and nothing seems to fix the problem. I have paid for several months now and never can access anything. Can you please help? Thank you.

    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!

    There needs to be more support for this. No Xbox app, no casting a lot of the time. It's really frustrating having to watch on the phone

    App keeps saying that it cannot connect to the internet. I know I have service and strong wi-fi.
  • 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

    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
