  • 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.

    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.

    LOVE the History Vault streaming service but wish you guys would add a compatible app to Android TV &/OR Chromecast with Google TV.
  • Meritorious! Dec 9, 2019

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    This app is vary bias. I look up Biden just see how many years he be serving in public office and it gave he his bio. I was thinking ok this is not too bias. Then I read some more. Then the article started makeing fun of Trump. I dont care about Trump. But just want the info I been looking for. Not this garbage. Its like a CNN article or Fox Article. I just want the facts. Can you guys edit out the vary bias part then we good. I can even link it if i have to. Please fix it just have the facts.

  • 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!

  • Definitely Worth $5 Jan 21, 2020

    By cmm472
    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    It has content advertising for shows you can watch only with the app yet they are not available to watch on the app.

    By Michele Turner
    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.

  • 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
