  • Great App but Adds Feb 7, 2021

    By Stay Happy you are loved
    Ok so first off I’d like to mention that this app is actually really good and it’s all free and I really appreciate that and I’m pretty sure you can watch like anything that comes out on Lifetime on this app well except for movies but I’m pretty sure they have another app that’s for specifically lifetime movies but anyway that’s not the point this app is really great and but I just like to mention that there’s a lot of ads like so many like it’s just gets repetitive you know and it’s kind of annoying how many ads there are and also the ads just go on for like so long and you know sometimes I feel like there’s more ads and there is video but other than that it really is a great app and if you don’t mind ads then I would really recommend it and this is no hate to the app it’s just constructive criticism I’m just mentioning things that could be improved and obviously yes I do know that companies can’t stop the ads because this is what keeps them able to make everything free but it’s just I feel like there could be a just a tad bit less ads I’m not saying completely no ads at all I’m just saying less ads I’d also be really nice if they could add like different ads in there instead of just all the same ads over and over again it would just make it so much better but yeah that’s all thanks for ltakimv your time to listen to my review.
  • Great app!!! But... Aug 31, 2020

    By DanceMomHolly
    I love this app, all of the shows are free with is amazing! One thing that I’d like to point out is the ads. I know apps can’t stop ads cause that what keeps the ads free cause there advertising the app or company but there’s a lot of flaws about how the ads run etc. For example, I’m watching my show and there’s ads. I usually don’t have problems with ads but with these there repeating themself in a row and not just after the last add the show had but right after that ad. To be more specific the same car ad or stop and shop ad keep popping up repeatedly and it gets boring after seeing an ad replete it’s self frequently. Another thing about this ad problem is that there going on for a long time and there multiple ads in one sequence so it gets the person aggravated cause they just want to watch the rest of there show. One more thing I’d like to point out about the ads is that they keep pausing with a reload sign after almost every ad and it shows the first scene and then switches to a totally different ad and it gets annoying cause people that have perfect internet get annoyed cause the ads keep having to pause then switch. If people are fine with ads popping up constantly then get the app cause otherwise it’s great! But if u hate ads like me, don’t get this app.

    It's not a bad app, relatively intuitive. Plus there seems to be a lot of options for different shows to watch. Sometimes the app gets buggy and will kick me out mid show and sometimes I'll get 5 or 6 ads back to back in between episodes. Other than that, really nothing else is a problem.

    So I would rate this a three because the ads that keep coming on the same ones over and over and it’s really hard for me to watch my shows and especially they get really annoying the ads that go over and over I would at least like to have ads that are different but I’m also giving it a three because I love watching dance moms I can watch it clearly hear everything nicely so there was no other problem other than those ads I really would like this app to change the way the ads are because it’s very annoying that I just keep coming and coming and they’re the same ones over and over I really don’t like the fact about the ads that come on and I see every like kind of review they say that they don’t like that the ads are just going and going and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s annoyed here I really hate the fact that I just keep going and going same ones over and over and I just wanted to say if you’re going to download this app you have to make sure you like adds a lot like come on always and always and always I tried doing something to stop the ads but it’s not capable so

    In my opinion, I think that the app lifetime is such a great app. I decided to download this app after an anonymous user replied to someone saying that Lifetime is an app where you can watch many different shows that would usually cost money, for free. One thing many people have been complaining about was the amount of ads that this app gave when you clicked on an episode to watch. In my personal experience, I only had to watch one ad in the beginning that was about 15 seconds long. The ad’s from then on were divided fairly. I feel like there are ad’s in almost everything digital, so it was not that big of a problem for me personally. I think most of the reviews were pretty outdated, and Lifetime saw the reviews, and decreased the amount of ad’s they showed. I think that the amount of ad’s shown were fair especially because of the fact that you didn’t have to pay to watch these exclusive shows. I overall really like this app, and love that I could watch dance moms here!

    For a few app the shows themselves are great. However the app crashes constantly!!! Commercials get stuck and repeat for 5 minutes before the app crashes again. Just to open it and gave to rewatch the commercials again.
  • Love app, but soooooo many ads Nov 9, 2020

    By Jaleesakj
    I’m in love with the app. I’ve enjoyed rewatching my favorite shows like dance moms and bring it. I am disappointed that not all of the episodes are available for the show bring it. Seasons 1-3 is missing 5-6 episodes a piece. Besides that why are there so many ads so frequently? There’s a commercial and there will be 6-8 ads adding up to 3 minutes or more. I might as well watch it live on tv and watch the same 3 minute commercials. When I come to stream I really don’t want to deal with a whole lot of commercials. I understand the ads is what is keeping the app free but honestly I’d rather pay for a premium version just so I can get away from it. It’s starting to get extremely frustrated. If I rewind because I missed a part there’s ads. I fast forward to skip the intro there’s ads then 2 min later commercials break there’s 7 ads after I just sat through 5 ads previously. I’m over it. So annoyed with this app.

    I've been using my lifetime app for a few years. I changed my rating from 4 stars to 1 star when the app changed awhile back because the commercials were ridiculously long (once I timed one at 11 minutes and 24 seconds). Now, I’m changing my rating again because I feel like you listened to all the complaints by giving the interactive commercial option. I love that option and use it every time it’s given. I only rated 3 stars, though, because I wish I could choose the 30 second option every time. Some shows give me the option frequently, while others never do. I still do not like that I have to start playing the video to see the episode information. Plus, I’m always logged in, yet it doesn’t always show which episodes I’ve watched already and which ones I haven’t. I’m hoping you’ll continue making this an easier watching experience!

    Be prepared to watched commercials OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, even after you watch the set amount they will make you watch another set right away and if your lucky you might get to go back to your show!!

  • It’s an amazing app but so many ads Jun 1, 2018

    By our voice matters
    I love the Lifetime app. I only watch a few things on there and I think that it is fantastic if you like their shows. You can watch them as many times as you want. The only issue I have is that it has so many ads that go on for so long. I love the interactive ad feature but I have gotten that one time and I have used this app for approximately 6 months. I think that if you can handle 20 ads for every 5 minutes of the show your watching then it is great, but otherwise I think that maybe a little bit less ads would be beneficial. I do understand that the ads make them money but I think that you could get higher ratings and more downloads if you improved on that. I hope this improves in the future.

    HORRIBLE APP! This is hands down one of the worst apps I've ever had. Every 30 seconds into a show we get a 6-7 add break each add being 1-2 minutes at this point I've literally watch a show worth of adds! I can understand having add breaks but to literally only make it 30 seconds and we are having adds again it's ridiculous. Not to mention it will be the same add for the whole add break. 🤦🏻‍♀️ It's not only this way on my phone but the same for my TV app. Will be uninstalling.

    First off, there's lots of ads. Then, when you think you're done... More ads.... Then more ads... Then a few minutes of an episode then... You guessed it, more ads! UNWATCHABLE!! Now I'm going to uninstall this app and have a nice day! Lifetime, you guys have phenomenal content but your app is appalling and it makes you look very greedy and pitiful! Please do better! I'm out! Better yet, give us a app for a fee and NO COMMERCIALS! I'm all over that!

    By Sweetie Girl
    I like that you can go back and watch things that you've missed, especially because a lot of Lifetime's content is addictive. However, the are FAR too many ads. It's distracting and disappointing. And VERY repetitive. I hope that the developer of this app or Lifetime can come up with a better way of making money, because this really SUCKS.
  • Advertisements, Casting, and Resuming Oct 16, 2018

    By Blah blah what 421
    I appreciate that this app allows you to watch lifetime’s shows for free, however, there are way too many issues with this app to make it worth anyone’s time. For one, there are way too many advertisements for any episode length. The advertisements make up about 1/3 of the show length. If I watch a show that is 45 minutes long, there is at least 15 minutes of advertisements, maybe longer. The same 4 or 5 ads play over and over on repeat. You can not start the show without seeing at least 4 ads. An ad will play every 5 minutes. Next, if you decide to cast your show to a tv from any device, you have to do it before picking your episode. Once you begin a show, you can no longer cast. This is a simple, frustrating issue that should be fixed. Lastly, after exiting the app you can no longer begin where you left off. You’ll have to keep track of where you left off in order to resume from your spot in the episode. If you open the app, you’ll notice the app believes you are in the middle of an episode you watched previously. Overall, the app possess features that are not user friendly, and has advertisements that are outrageously long and unnecessary. It is nice that users can watch episodes for free of their favorite show, however, it is not worth the download if you have a short temper or the time to deal with all the faults.

    I love sort of being able to watch shows that I've missed but the app is so bad that it's almost never working. I don't mind the ads since I know that's apart of the TV experience, but the same 2-3 ads over and over is starting to drive me crazy. I could deal with that though if only the app would actually work and load things!
  • 2 stars only because I’m able to watch show Nov 7, 2017

    By Nosirrahm
    This app needs some help. Stop asking me if 👁 want the 3 min ads or interactive. The button response is slow so it takes almost the whole countdown before it acts. Once commercials start, you can’t pause or exit to the show list which is a pain. One McDs commercial played 7 times in a row. The only way to stop it was to close the app since you can’t exit the commercial. Some commercials are totally stupid - the Basis commercial? The voice and video are out of sync (I’ve seen it 9000 times). There are a few commercials that have no text or product. Literally 👁 sit there confused as to what 👁 saw (commercial with a kid trying to open a marker(?), someone off screen reaches for it and the kid hands back the thing and it ends. There are no words, no product you can see and it’s about 15 seconds.) Going from one device to the next doesn’t work. The continue watching option is always 3-4 episodes behind. When you search your show, you see your show progress, selecting it always starts from the beginning. So note how much progress you made so you can slide over to where you were. It also started this problem of starting the next episode about 45 min In. Why? 👁 have no idea. You have to slide the dot back to the beginning of the show.

  • Advertisements Oct 8, 2017

    By Destig
    I totally understand you want to put adds but it’s unacceptable how many adds there are there is at least 6 to 7 adds every five minutes an episode is usually 40 to 45 minuets long and every five minutes you get an add and it’s not like there are different interesting adds every time it’s the same adds over and over again it makes no sense I don’t want to hear the same information every second I’m trying to watch something this app is completely unorganized and needs to improved quickly I do not recommend this terrible app due to the adds that are useless , apps like these deserve plenty of bad reviews until they fix it I don’t understand one bad review should be good for this company to think “oh maybe there to many adds let’s try at least try to fix this problem” but no this inconsiderate company needs about 2 to 5 bad reviews to able to think about changing and maybe not even, maybe they just ignore these reviews and continue to have the worst app that has ever been created this app is good in no ones eyes and should be fixed without a doubt I am incredibly disappointed and unsatisfied with this terrible app. I don’t mean to have been so harsh and rude but if that’s the only way you will understand then that’s what all of us people need to do to help better your app.

    I'm frustrated by this app as I keep trying to research if there's a way I can pay for full episodes or something seeing as I do not pay for cable in my home. We don't have a use for it when we watch only a few shows. And nothing. I can only see unlocked episodes then I'm asked to sign into a candle provider I don't have. 🙄 It's a headache and a half honestly.
  • Fix this app already! May 7, 2021

    By yoyadf
    It’s insane how they have yet to fix this app after years of it messing up and with all the ads. If you don’t finish an episode and exit the app, next time you open it, it will have an episode you already watched on the main screen ready to watch. I was in the middle of episode 6 of Married At First Sight but didn’t realize exactly which episode I was on. I had to exit out the app. Went back on and the middle of the 4th episode was waiting for me. I was confused when watching it. I tried to fast forward to see if I watched it. Ad after ad each time I fast forwarded it a little bit. Super annoying! I just exited and looked at the episode list. I think I’ve watched about 30 ads within the last ten mins trying to find out where I left off on. Oh and the 6th episode took me back to an earlier point in the episode than I was. Lifetime get it together already! Edit: If you press pause, you have so much trouble getting it to actually pause. After ten tries, I thought I actually paused it. Then it started playing on it’s own. Support team wants me to contact them but what good would that do. FIX THE APP!! Super frustrating! I rather long in with my cable service than for this app to be free with all the glitches.

  • Nice Interface - No ads for me Mar 2, 2018

    By kristinafh
    I am a faithful Project Runway viewer and until two months ago, I always watched episodes via my Direct Tv app. I was having issues with that app so I downloaded this one. What a pleasant surprise! The interface is clutter free. It was easy to find the exact show I wanted to watch. Because I am a direct tv subscriber, when I validate my credentials, it remembers what episodes I’ve watched via this app. For me, there are zero commercials. I don’t know if this is an app thing or what. When I used to watch via my direct tv app - there was always commercials. I’ve taken the time to watch some other shows/episodes that I have never seen. I don’t watch much television but the television I do watch has mostly been via this app.
  • Great App Support Team Jul 29, 2020

    By Brian T Beswick
    I previously had written a review about issues I had been having. Afterwards though, the Lifetime Team reaches out to me with genuine interest in resolving my issues and after working with them all my issues have been resolved across all my devices. I’m now enjoying my experience using the Lifetime app and appreciate the Lifetime team’s hard working and genuine caring towards their users. Thank you Lifetime Team! Constantly crashes every time there’s an ad which is all the time. 4 to 5 Ads per break and 5 to 6 breaks in even just a 30 minute show. Restarting the app doesn’t fix the crashes either. Often you can’t watch the show because when it crashes on an ad it won’t start that show again. Just sits there black screened. Even on the fastest internet speeds with no latency it crashes claiming no internet connection. Half the time even if it doesn’t crash and you exit a show it doesn’t save where you were. On the random chance that it does make it through an ad break without crashing, it’s the same 3 ads over and over and over again. Pampers, All State, and an ad about creating a Lifetime profile even if you have one.
  • Detailed Show Facts and Information Jul 15, 2018

    By taaheetea2k
    Love having FULL episodes!💙💜. The App takes several tries before understanding the layout, but once you do it’s great to have the seasons and episodes clearly detailed along with the little narrative describing the specific episode. I like the facts listed as well, for example the date it was aired and the highlighted guests. My only real issue is the commercials. There are times where the same one plays 3 times in a row. Sometimes I’ll be able to watch two consecutive episodes without commercials, but then after the episode there will be six in a row! Just like watching cable TV 📺. Ugh 😑!
  • I signed in with my authorized TV provider, but.. Jan 27, 2019

    By LaurenFischels
    I still am unable to watch more than 3 episodes. I’ve signed out, signed back in, closed out of the app, triple-checked everything.. but still no luck. One of the only reasons I even pay for 125 channels is so I can watch all Lifetime shows on demand. I just don’t get it. Really hoping someone can fix this. Update: customer service helped me resolve the issue, and fast. Many of the shows on the lifetime app are actually LMN shows, so if LMN isn’t authorized with your TV provider, those shows won’t play. I added LMN to my tv bundle and the issue was fixed immediately.
  • I love this app !!!! Jan 4, 2020

    By smartperson 122
    This is my favorite app because I was looking to watch free full episodes of dance moms and j looked at you tube and it either cost money or isn’t a full episode so I highly recommend this app if that’s what your looking for. Oh and it lets you close the app and come back on the next day and start off exactly where you left off. I also love the option pick a 30 second ad or an Interactive ad because I would so much rather just push a button then sit there and listen to an ad , so thank you for this amazing app !
  • WHYYY?!?!?? Apr 29, 2019

    So I just got on a few minutes ago since I only watch dance moms really, I got on the app and it’s loading to the shows..... ONLY ONE APP APPEARED !!! What is happing?!?! Then I turned off my phone, completely off, and turned it back on and still only ONE show. now I’m just going to delete the app and then reloading it. if it does this again I will go to settings and do my update thing and she if it still works. I’m still giving this app five stars because when it DOES work I really enjoy it. Thank you and hope lifetime employees respond.

    I know others complain about the commercials. But let’s be honest folks, you get to watch this channel along with so many others for FREE, but you also have to sit thru many many commercials. So what’s the difference? The difference is that, your channels on television are NOT really free. Most of us are paying sky high prices for cable etc. I love the ability to be able to watch any episode any time over and over. Not just one airing. I enjoy lifetime and everything about it.

I was so happy with this app and I was fine with the ads because I get it you guys have to do what you gotta do but in less that 12 hour of me watching Dance Moms season 3 episode 16 you locked all of the episodes. So now I have nothing I can use to watch dance moms and I’m upset. How could this just change overnight, no warning at all. Disappointed and I loved using the app.
  • Better than xfinity app Jan 4, 2018

    By LoveOn1432
    I love using this app rather than using the xfinity app to watch shows on Lifetimes network. One show and season comes on right after another so I can continue binge watching without any long commercial breaks episode episode and commercial ads are only 30 seconds rather than 5 to 10 minutes as if it was recorded or watching during its regular scheduled program. Definitely a plus!
  • It’s an amazing app but so many ads Jun 1, 2018

    By our voice matters
    I love the Lifetime app. I only watch a few things on there and I think that it is fantastic if you like their shows. You can watch them as many times as you want. The only issue I have is that it has so many ads that go on for so long. I love the interactive ad feature but I have gotten that one time and I have used this app for approximately 6 months. I think that if you can handle 20 ads for every 5 minutes of the show your watching then it is great, but otherwise I think that maybe a little bit less ads would be beneficial. I do understand that the ads make them money but I think that you could get higher ratings and more downloads if you improved on that. I hope this improves in the future.
  • Ads Jul 19, 2020

    By therealaubreyh
    I gave it four stars because there are shows you can watch full episodes of which I don’t think you can get full episodes anywhere else, just clips. But I didn’t give it five stars because the ads are really annoying they pop up every few minutes and they are the same ads every time. The ads repeat so much that I can memorize them, “Beaumont doctors and care givers continue to lead the way through the COVID 19 crisis, and we are dedicated, to keeping you safe, in our care.” There is also no way to skip the ad or get some kind of pass to make your app ad free, I know this because I have tried to get ride of them but it’s not possible. I would really like if the creators found a way to remove ads, and I think others would too.
  • way to many ads Jun 6, 2019

    By imsa07*
    i got this app so i could watch full episodes for dance moms and i like how you can watch them for free but there are ads at least every 5 minutes and it’s not just one there are 3-5 at a time and that gets rly annoying. also they play the same ads over and over and over again so it’s not as interesting as like seeing different ones every time. but i would recommend this app i guess it’s completely free but that’s the only thing i like ab this app. again WAY to many ads i would love this app if it had no ads or just one 30 second ad in the whole episode.
  • My opinion on lifetime app Jul 27, 2019

    By fartfacepoop123
    I have 4 stars bc it’s very convenient and it has my fav show ever DANCE MOMS!!! And I can watch three episodes bc I don’t have a TV provider, bc my family thought cable was too expensive I can only watch 3 episodes? That’s not enough to b able to watch throwback episodes and the new episodes. This app is telling me that my family’s decisions stop me from watching my fav show and that you need more money to b able to watch your fav shows. Because that’s the message I’m getting and I’m thinking of deleting it bc I can’t watch anymore episodes
  • 4 stars.. Aug 20, 2018

    By Minecraftlover505
    I think that the lifetime app deserves 4 stars. The pros are that you can watch any life time show for free and not have to worry about having to pay monthly like you do with Netflix and etc.. the cons are that their is a lot of ads in between the episodes your watching.. sometimes their are 5 or 3 or 2 and no one really cares about ads they just get annoyed. I got the lifetime app today and I already love it it’s just the ads that I don’t like. But other than that it’s great I can watch all my shows without having to worry about paying money.
  • Why this i am giving Lifetime only 4 stars. Sep 19, 2020

    By aaliyah hernandez
    Ok, I I just want to start off by saying while yes, this app is amazing, it just is very slow sometimes. While this may be my personal internet, it just seems... off. 1st, they repeat the same ads over and over again. Like, I was watching season 4 of Dance Moms, it went into the usual ads like normal (mind you, this has happened more than once) the ads were playing the same ads of Katie Porter (No Hate) they played I believe 3 consecutive times. Any way, Besides that it is an amazing app, it could be better. :-)
  • Good but consume lots of data Apr 17, 2021

    By Eudidhhsifieh
    The app works great and has some decent content. Ads can become a bit annoying especially for show that replay the same scene multiple time during the show (e.g. intro, before the add, after the add,...). At the same time the app and content are free. My biggest problem with the app is how much bandwidth it consumes, it’s in the order of 1G/h. As such I can only use it on wifi. They could get a lot more usage if they found a way to better compress the content or enabled user to download an episode a head of time like Netflix, Disney+
  • Advertising Oct 7, 2020

    By leaveitlone
    I love this app. The shows are great. I gave it 4 stars because the ads are just way way too much. It’s like every 2 min and here’s the same ad. Your watching a movie and it gets to a really good point in the show and Boom🧨 here come the ads like 7 in a row and it gets so annoying. Like you just want to see the movie not all the nonsense redundant ads. It would be a 5 if you got rid of 3/4 of those ads. Seriously. I think more people would watch the shows if the annoying ads were cut waaaaaay down. Just saying.
  • Missing episodes and ads Apr 13, 2020

    By M.y.r.n.a
    Overall I think the lifetime app is a great app to catch up on missing episodes for some shows but my only complaints are in the show Dance Moms they seem to be missing many episodes that I haven’t seen before and I’m very upset about that. Also there are kind of a lot of ads interrupting each episode and you can’t skip them and they repeat the same ones over and over. But if you don’t mind the ads then my only major complaint is the missing episodes.
  • Great Content but the app itself is annoying at times... Apr 20, 2021

    By Mrs.SLHB
    I love the Lifetime Network but videos aren’t always uploaded in the correct order to the correct show... namely the MAFS couples cam videos aren’t always posted on time after the shows aired then it’s either randomly posted to the regular MAFS season and not to the actual show... it gets annoying trying figure out where the videos are each time I want to watch! If they can get the video posting together, I would give the app 5 stars!
  • Great App but Adds Feb 7, 2021

    By Stay Happy you are loved
    Ok so first off I’d like to mention that this app is actually really good and it’s all free and I really appreciate that and I’m pretty sure you can watch like anything that comes out on Lifetime on this app well except for movies but I’m pretty sure they have another app that’s for specifically lifetime movies but anyway that’s not the point this app is really great and but I just like to mention that there’s a lot of ads like so many like it’s just gets repetitive you know and it’s kind of annoying how many ads there are and also the ads just go on for like so long and you know sometimes I feel like there’s more ads and there is video but other than that it really is a great app and if you don’t mind ads then I would really recommend it and this is no hate to the app it’s just constructive criticism I’m just mentioning things that could be improved and obviously yes I do know that companies can’t stop the ads because this is what keeps them able to make everything free but it’s just I feel like there could be a just a tad bit less ads I’m not saying completely no ads at all I’m just saying less ads I’d also be really nice if they could add like different ads in there instead of just all the same ads over and over again it would just make it so much better but yeah that’s all thanks for ltakimv your time to listen to my review.
  • Great app!!! But... Aug 31, 2020

    By DanceMomHolly
    I love this app, all of the shows are free with is amazing! One thing that I’d like to point out is the ads. I know apps can’t stop ads cause that what keeps the ads free cause there advertising the app or company but there’s a lot of flaws about how the ads run etc. For example, I’m watching my show and there’s ads. I usually don’t have problems with ads but with these there repeating themself in a row and not just after the last add the show had but right after that ad. To be more specific the same car ad or stop and shop ad keep popping up repeatedly and it gets boring after seeing an ad replete it’s self frequently. Another thing about this ad problem is that there going on for a long time and there multiple ads in one sequence so it gets the person aggravated cause they just want to watch the rest of there show. One more thing I’d like to point out about the ads is that they keep pausing with a reload sign after almost every ad and it shows the first scene and then switches to a totally different ad and it gets annoying cause people that have perfect internet get annoyed cause the ads keep having to pause then switch. If people are fine with ads popping up constantly then get the app cause otherwise it’s great! But if u hate ads like me, don’t get this app.

    By Haley Dunaway
    It's not a bad app, relatively intuitive. Plus there seems to be a lot of options for different shows to watch. Sometimes the app gets buggy and will kick me out mid show and sometimes I'll get 5 or 6 ads back to back in between episodes. Other than that, really nothing else is a problem.
  • 3 Jun 20, 2020

    By lynda conde
    So I would rate this a three because the ads that keep coming on the same ones over and over and it’s really hard for me to watch my shows and especially they get really annoying the ads that go over and over I would at least like to have ads that are different but I’m also giving it a three because I love watching dance moms I can watch it clearly hear everything nicely so there was no other problem other than those ads I really would like this app to change the way the ads are because it’s very annoying that I just keep coming and coming and they’re the same ones over and over I really don’t like the fact about the ads that come on and I see every like kind of review they say that they don’t like that the ads are just going and going and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s annoyed here I really hate the fact that I just keep going and going same ones over and over and I just wanted to say if you’re going to download this app you have to make sure you like adds a lot like come on always and always and always I tried doing something to stop the ads but it’s not capable so
  • Jul 4, 2021

    By Kaytee Shelburn
    For a few app the shows themselves are great. However the app crashes constantly!!! Commercials get stuck and repeat for 5 minutes before the app crashes again. Just to open it and gave to rewatch the commercials again.
  • Love app, but soooooo many ads Nov 9, 2020

    By Jaleesakj
    I’m in love with the app. I’ve enjoyed rewatching my favorite shows like dance moms and bring it. I am disappointed that not all of the episodes are available for the show bring it. Seasons 1-3 is missing 5-6 episodes a piece. Besides that why are there so many ads so frequently? There’s a commercial and there will be 6-8 ads adding up to 3 minutes or more. I might as well watch it live on tv and watch the same 3 minute commercials. When I come to stream I really don’t want to deal with a whole lot of commercials. I understand the ads is what is keeping the app free but honestly I’d rather pay for a premium version just so I can get away from it. It’s starting to get extremely frustrated. If I rewind because I missed a part there’s ads. I fast forward to skip the intro there’s ads then 2 min later commercials break there’s 7 ads after I just sat through 5 ads previously. I’m over it. So annoyed with this app.
  • Thank you for listening! Mar 19, 2018

    By RacheEm83
    I've been using my lifetime app for a few years. I changed my rating from 4 stars to 1 star when the app changed awhile back because the commercials were ridiculously long (once I timed one at 11 minutes and 24 seconds). Now, I’m changing my rating again because I feel like you listened to all the complaints by giving the interactive commercial option. I love that option and use it every time it’s given. I only rated 3 stars, though, because I wish I could choose the 30 second option every time. Some shows give me the option frequently, while others never do. I still do not like that I have to start playing the video to see the episode information. Plus, I’m always logged in, yet it doesn’t always show which episodes I’ve watched already and which ones I haven’t. I’m hoping you’ll continue making this an easier watching experience!
  • Jul 3, 2021

    By Colleen-Meghan Connelly
    Be prepared to watched commercials OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, even after you watch the set amount they will make you watch another set right away and if your lucky you might get to go back to your show!!
  • Problems With SmartCast Jan 10, 2020

    By pnmxo
    I don’t know who to contact so I figured leaving a review was my next best bet. The SmartCast feature is wonderful, but it has many of its own issues. There is no autoplay, and each episode must be played manually from the original streaming device, which is really inconvenient. Also, when an episode is selected, it automatically begins to play 10 minutes into whatever episode is selected. This means that every time one episode finishes, I have to manually select the next episode. Then, I have to wait for the commercials to play. Once those three minutes are over, I have to rewind the episode to the beginning. Every. Single. Time. It genuinely makes it not worth it to watch via SmartCast, and it’s inconvenient for binge watching any show. The app itself functions well, but when the casting gets involved, I absolutely hate it.
  • Frustrating Mar 4, 2021

    By KienzyJ
    This app is frustrating. I gave it 3 stars merely because it’s free. As a lot of the reviews say, it has a lot of ads, but the number of ads don’t bother me, it’s the fact that the ad will play for 5 seconds then pause for 3. This happens with every. Single. Ad. Every. Single. Time. That means that I am waiting double the time for the ads to be over, and it happens on both me phone and my tv. Also, it says if I log into an account, I can keep watching where I left off, which works if I watch the very next day only, and even then sometimes it will take me all the way back to the beginning of the episode so then I have to watch the first ad, fast forward, then wait for 5 more ads, which start and stop constantly.
  • Jun 8, 2021

    By Sweetie Girl
    I like that you can go back and watch things that you've missed, especially because a lot of Lifetime's content is addictive. However, the are FAR too many ads. It's distracting and disappointing. And VERY repetitive. I hope that the developer of this app or Lifetime can come up with a better way of making money, because this really SUCKS.
  • Jun 18, 2021

    By Marissa L
    I love sort of being able to watch shows that I've missed but the app is so bad that it's almost never working. I don't mind the ads since I know that's apart of the TV experience, but the same 2-3 ads over and over is starting to drive me crazy. I could deal with that though if only the app would actually work and load things!
  • 2 stars only because I’m able to watch show Nov 7, 2017

    By Nosirrahm
    This app needs some help. Stop asking me if 👁 want the 3 min ads or interactive. The button response is slow so it takes almost the whole countdown before it acts. Once commercials start, you can’t pause or exit to the show list which is a pain. One McDs commercial played 7 times in a row. The only way to stop it was to close the app since you can’t exit the commercial. Some commercials are totally stupid - the Basis commercial? The voice and video are out of sync (I’ve seen it 9000 times). There are a few commercials that have no text or product. Literally 👁 sit there confused as to what 👁 saw (commercial with a kid trying to open a marker(?), someone off screen reaches for it and the kid hands back the thing and it ends. There are no words, no product you can see and it’s about 15 seconds.) Going from one device to the next doesn’t work. The continue watching option is always 3-4 episodes behind. When you search your show, you see your show progress, selecting it always starts from the beginning. So note how much progress you made so you can slide over to where you were. It also started this problem of starting the next episode about 45 min In. Why? 👁 have no idea. You have to slide the dot back to the beginning of the show.

    By Katrina McDermott
    I'm frustrated by this app as I keep trying to research if there's a way I can pay for full episodes or something seeing as I do not pay for cable in my home. We don't have a use for it when we watch only a few shows. And nothing. I can only see unlocked episodes then I'm asked to sign into a candle provider I don't have. 🙄 It's a headache and a half honestly.
  • Fix this app already! May 7, 2021

    By yoyadf
    It’s insane how they have yet to fix this app after years of it messing up and with all the ads. If you don’t finish an episode and exit the app, next time you open it, it will have an episode you already watched on the main screen ready to watch. I was in the middle of episode 6 of Married At First Sight but didn’t realize exactly which episode I was on. I had to exit out the app. Went back on and the middle of the 4th episode was waiting for me. I was confused when watching it. I tried to fast forward to see if I watched it. Ad after ad each time I fast forwarded it a little bit. Super annoying! I just exited and looked at the episode list. I think I’ve watched about 30 ads within the last ten mins trying to find out where I left off on. Oh and the 6th episode took me back to an earlier point in the episode than I was. Lifetime get it together already! Edit: If you press pause, you have so much trouble getting it to actually pause. After ten tries, I thought I actually paused it. Then it started playing on it’s own. Support team wants me to contact them but what good would that do. FIX THE APP!! Super frustrating! I rather long in with my cable service than for this app to be free with all the glitches.
  • Starting where you left off, yeah right Feb 16, 2020

    By Mzthng
    I made an account like it says so that I can start from where I left off when watching from any device. It worked maybe twice. Now it constantly picks up on the same episode no matter how many times I try to run through an episode to show it that I’ve watched the next ones, which doing that is a pain because then you have to watch what feels like hours of ads. If I start it from my Apple TV app it takes me to the next episode before I can finish the one I’m on. I’ve never experienced an App that can’t even pick up where you have left off. I can’t even start from where I left off when watching from the same app on the same device the next day! There also needs to be a way to chose to not have any ads. If you have it synced with your cable provider why make us watch ad after ad after ad, which aren’t ever relevant to where I live or my interest and play sometimes the same ad 4-5 times in a row. I would almost prefer a subscription model to possibly even pay a small amount to get it with no ads, which would actually let me watch a 45 minute show in 45 minutes instead of an hour and a half. This app needs work big time.
  • Great app, BUT... Feb 9, 2021

    By Tayloyo22
    I love the lifetime app, although so far I’ve only used it to watch one show. I don’t have too many complaints about the ads, they are actually pretty normal and I know that’s what makes lifetime free. The only issue I have is with other devices. When I watch on my phone no matter if I’m at home on WiFi, or in my car using my data, I get absolutely 0 lagging or buffering. Somehow when I try to watch on my Samsung smart tv or my laptop, it will be fine for the first HALF of the episode, and then will start lagging and buffering. I’ll pause the show to let it catch up, one time for an entire HOUR, and yet it will still play for a few seconds and then continue to load and buffer. My tv and laptop are on the same WiFi as my phone and I have no connectivity problems with any other app or anything. This is really annoying because I would love to watch my show on an actual tv instead of just my phone but I can’t deal with watching it for a few seconds at a time with a large pause in between. I would love to change my rating if this can get fixed!

    HORRIBLE APP! This is hands down one of the worst apps I've ever had. Every 30 seconds into a show we get a 6-7 add break each add being 1-2 minutes at this point I've literally watch a show worth of adds! I can understand having add breaks but to literally only make it 30 seconds and we are having adds again it's ridiculous. Not to mention it will be the same add for the whole add break. 🤦🏻‍♀️ It's not only this way on my phone but the same for my TV app. Will be uninstalling.

Better yet, give us a app for a fee and NO COMMERCIALS! I'm all over that!
  • Advertisements, Casting, and Resuming Oct 16, 2018

    By Blah blah what 421
    I appreciate that this app allows you to watch lifetime’s shows for free, however, there are way too many issues with this app to make it worth anyone’s time. For one, there are way too many advertisements for any episode length. The advertisements make up about 1/3 of the show length. If I watch a show that is 45 minutes long, there is at least 15 minutes of advertisements, maybe longer. The same 4 or 5 ads play over and over on repeat. You can not start the show without seeing at least 4 ads. An ad will play every 5 minutes. Next, if you decide to cast your show to a tv from any device, you have to do it before picking your episode. Once you begin a show, you can no longer cast. This is a simple, frustrating issue that should be fixed. Lastly, after exiting the app you can no longer begin where you left off. You’ll have to keep track of where you left off in order to resume from your spot in the episode. If you open the app, you’ll notice the app believes you are in the middle of an episode you watched previously. Overall, the app possess features that are not user friendly, and has advertisements that are outrageously long and unnecessary. It is nice that users can watch episodes for free of their favorite show, however, it is not worth the download if you have a short temper or the time to deal with all the faults.

    its decent, but the amount of ads is insane. theres more ads then there is actual episode, i know it's for revenue, but just make it a subscription service please. people would buy it you dont need to torture us with the same 2 ads over and over again.
  • Advertisements Oct 8, 2017

    By Destig
    I totally understand you want to put adds but it’s unacceptable how many adds there are there is at least 6 to 7 adds every five minutes an episode is usually 40 to 45 minuets long and every five minutes you get an add and it’s not like there are different interesting adds every time it’s the same adds over and over again it makes no sense I don’t want to hear the same information every second I’m trying to watch something this app is completely unorganized and needs to improved quickly I do not recommend this terrible app due to the adds that are useless , apps like these deserve plenty of bad reviews until they fix it I don’t understand one bad review should be good for this company to think “oh maybe there to many adds let’s try at least try to fix this problem” but no this inconsiderate company needs about 2 to 5 bad reviews to able to think about changing and maybe not even, maybe they just ignore these reviews and continue to have the worst app that has ever been created this app is good in no ones eyes and should be fixed without a doubt I am incredibly disappointed and unsatisfied with this terrible app. I don’t mean to have been so harsh and rude but if that’s the only way you will understand then that’s what all of us people need to do to help better your app.

    This is by far the worst movie/tv show watching app available. Its SO glitchy. It barely ever works. In order to watch a show on it, youll have to uninstall/reinstall over and over, and regardless of how strong your wifi/data is.. Its going to tell you that it cant load for whatever reason over and over. I watched literally 2 episodes of a tv show on the app before it absolutely refused to work again no matter what i did, and i have uninstalled it now because its useless.

    I absolutely hate the add's. I have tried several times to change my add settings and nothing has changed. If I do the 30 second option it only does it once then if I have to do it a second time it says there is an error. Its like you constantly watch 3 minute adds and it takes forever to even watch one episode of a show
  • Makes viewing frustrating! Ads on Ads on Ads. Jan 10, 2019

    By Fanie18
    Let me start with saying this app DOES get the job done. However, the app itself has made the viewing experience so frustrated that I’ve given up watching some of my favorite shows. The main bug are the ads. They’ll literally start in the middle of a scene. Not like regular tv where you can tell it’s about to go into commercial. No these ads are very unpredictable, they’ll come up whenever. But the worse part is that they’re sooooo repetitive. It’ll literally be the same Ad on reply 4 or 5 times sometimes and it’s extremely annoying. Especially when I have guests over. I cast the episodes on my tv and it’s almost impossible to rewind and forward, I would tell my google home to rewind a minute and it will either rewind way too much or go all the way to the beginning. I try using the app and it’s the same thing plus you have to deal with ads every time. If you get off the app it won’t save where you left off or it’ll save on the wrong spot. If you try to forward you have to watch Ads to even start the episode and even more Ads to forward to the time you left off at. I have since stopped watching lifetime shows in general. Hoping this app can get fixed soon.

    Can't even use it. Try to watch any show and I get "User not authorized error", even though my TV provider has been verified and is signed in, AND I'm signed into my account. Judging from the other reviews, this app hasn't been updated in awhile and customer support is non-existent. Uninstalling and sticking with Oxygen and TLC 👋🏾
