I love this app, I use it on my iPad & Roku. Love the shows & functionality is great. I actually don’t mind the ads, I get it. But why on earth do I need to watch the same ad 5 times in a row?! That part is insanity.

Does not work. Neither on my Apple TV nor on my iPad. Jumped through all the hoops, activated, and signed into my cable company.

At first I didn’t like the shows then I saw the brothers were on and I like their show and the couples one. I sure wish they would give me some advice on what to do to my house. It’s definitely a fixer upper and just what I am doing in slow mode. But they all give me great ideas

I love this app and the shows it has to offer, but i can only watch from the phone. Most apps give you the capability to cast to a fire-stick or smart tv. Please consider doing this .

For months I could watch this using my Hulu account and now all a sudden it’s restricted. Such BS. Why the change?
AthenRoss's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/29/18 6:17 PM
Would be good if you didn’t have to log into your TV provider every time you wanted to watch something. Even with Apple’s new single sign-on, it doesn’t work. Get it together.
Jucifruitz's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/29/18 10:59 PM
I am a Direct TV Now subscriber and I am not able to unlock the shows on my mobile devices. I can watch the unlocked shows online via the website, my fire stick and via Direct TV now app with no issues. For some reason when downloading the app to my mobile devices, it won’t work. It worked before. This is my favorite channel and I can’t watch it on the go because the shows are still locked even after logging in. Highly disappointed.
AbMagFab's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/28/18 11:56 PM
It used to be good, and the recent app redesign is a big improvement. BUT - they totally broke logging in with other services (I use Hulu) and now all shows are locked and can’t watch live. Gives dumb “invalid mvpd/requestor combination” error when trying to watch anything now through the app. The app is now totally useless. Don’t use. Watch a different channel that actually works.
crazystix's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/27/18 1:57 AM
I was half way through Season 5 of Fixer Upper using my Directv Now login credentials only to be locked out with a message saying “Your DIRECTV NOW settings do not include this content. Invalid mvpd/requester combination.” BS!!!
Ehoyt's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/26/18 4:56 AM
I find this app annoying compared to any other app I use to watch movies and shows. The top bar data such as date, time, & battery status remain on the screen the whole time watching HGTV! There isn’t an option to make the screen wider to remove that from the view.

After updating we now don’t get the Apple TV icon. So I screen mirror it and the resolution is low, it stops and starts, and sometimes shuts down entirely. I should never have updated to this version.
SchubieGirl's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/19/18 4:55 PM
If you like watching the same commercial over and over, then HGTV apps and online version is the thing for you. The worst thing about the app is when a commercial comes on and starts skipping, by the time it comes back on, you’ve watched them cycle twice, I try to watch on lunch while I’m at work to unwind and break up my day but it usually leaves me more frustrated than I was before I went to lunch. They just don’t fix the commercial issue, it will replay ALL of them so instead of a quick break and back to the show it ends up being 6 mins or more of the same commercials cycling over again. Just freeezes! Can’t say it’s my internet, doesn’t happen while watching the show, only during their commercial run. Also happens when I watch it on the desktop. In 30 mins I usually watch 20 mins of commercials and frozen screen and only 10 mins of a show. Can’t even get through one episode during lunch. I have NEVER been able to do that. Also would love to see the old shows come back like designed to sell, hidden potential, not the one that they have now, the original episodes when it first came out. Bring back some Sandra Rinamato and Suzanne Whang too, love those old school episodes.

querido42's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/12/18 5:46 AM
This app starts the next episode before the episode you are watching is over. I spent 21 minutes watching the show and they always leave the outcome for the last minutes. If you try to go back you will have to sit through the same commercial block. Such bad app design. All of their shows save the outcome for the last few seconds. The app designers obviously have never watched an HGTV show!
DazzleZebraH2O's Review of HgtvReviewed on 9/11/18 1:16 AM
I have loved watching fixer upper, property brothers, and all of my other favorite hgtv shows on the app for the past couple years. After they gave the app a new layout and look, it just hasn’t been working. When I try to click the key to sign in, it won’t load and when I try to click on an episode it also won’t load!! I am debating uninstalling this app but I am waiting to see if the glitches improve. Hopefully they do because I’m on my last strike!

We use this app to watch shows on demand through our direct tv now subscription. It is difficult to get it fast forward or rewind. I don’t mind watching the ads but it’s frustrating to watch the SAME SIX ADS at every commercial break.

ajkoci's Review of HgtvReviewed on 8/3/18 6:03 PM
I was super excited to see that I could get all episodes and seasons on demand for my favorite shows until I actually started using this stupid app!!! It’s so touchy and I swear it has a new annoying glitch every couples of weeks. Last week it started to just pause right after the commercial was over and I couldn’t press play to get it back to where I it had stopped. So every single time I have to stop casting, close the dumb app, re-choose the episode and try to manually drag the bar to what time I need it at. However, it redoes that 1 min and 60 sec ad over again even though I just watched it and then often it will then pause and not work again once the ad is done or it will jump ahead to a place I didn’t ask for! Today I got so sick of it doing this that I am now writing in my two star rating! I love HGTV, but come on just have your app work! Also I love how all the ads will stream perfectly but the actual show can’t seem to work and often is laggy 🙄 and it’s not my internet speed, I have 60 mbps. I hope someday you can make it work!

Ether 21221's Review of HgtvReviewed on 8/29/18 1:23 AM
I have enjoyed the content within this application. I haven’t had many issues while using and streaming with this app. It was my daily go to app for quick content, until they removed Apple Airplay. I do not want to ding them with a bad rating based on one app update launch. Since mirroring this app to my 3rd gen Apple TV is not a pleasurable experience. With the removal of Apple Airplay I will not use the app until it is reverted, which is sad.

I want to love this app so bad because I love HGTV and was super excited to still be able to watch my shows after I cut cable but the quality is HORRIBLE!! It’s not even that it’s not HD (which it should be anyway); it literally looks like I’m watching shows on a flip phone from 2005. It’s also super glitchy...when I watch live tv it always freezes (almost ALWAYS right at the end when it’s the revealing of the new space) and it’s become so frustrating I don’t even feel like bothering anymore. Please fix this!

BcosofMercy's Review of HgtvReviewed on 8/23/18 3:02 PM
Will probably get rid of the app because if you don’t have cable a majority of the shows are locked down. And HGTV doesn’t update the free shows so after about a month there’s nothing to watch!

While I cannot say the latest update is a complete failure, most of the time the shows are blurry.

The new version can only be watched on your IPAD one way, it wont flip to fit the screen when you turn your IPAD vertically. It is not very user friendly, you have to scroll through many seasons and screens to find a show when previously it would show many shows under one listing. Lastly, this version took away the apple TV icon and ability to stream to your tv.

Can’t watch HGTV through Apple TV as It appears Spectrum/Apple TV OS/HGTV have not come to what ever agreement they need to come too.

crspy82's Review of HgtvReviewed on 7/29/18 7:08 PM
I have used the HGTV app on my iPad and Apple TV 4 for more than a year, having minimal issues. Over the past weeks, anytime I load the app on the Apple TV, it does not fully load before it completely crashes and goes back to the Apple TV home screen. We have tried several troubleshooting steps: Restarting through Settings; unplugging; deleting and reinstalling the HGTV app; signing out and back in to the HGTV app. In addition to these crashes, we are unable to play any of the videos on the iPad app either. The app will fully load (better than the Apple TV app), but when attempting to play an episode, I receive an error “Failed to Load Video.” Please update the app so it is useable again, or please explain why it can no longer be used with Verizon FIOS. Thank you.

Danny A. A.'s Review of HgtvReviewed on 7/18/18 5:24 AM
So I am focusing on the facts that 97% of the families that are either purchasing homes or hosting on hgtv are majority white families which is clear how the banking system only approves the majority of white americans to purchase homes i rarely see latino, black or even asians families being able to experience “the american dream” being able to purchase a home. For example if a ethnic family looks to purchase a home banks will require about 7 co signers to get approval but of a white family looks to purchase a home pretty much instantly approved. These are facts and not opinion just ask hgtv and the banks what is the race home buying approval rate. And it will be clear that we live in a america that does not give equal opportunity.

Murf101's Review of HgtvReviewed on 4/6/18 2:57 AM
The apps lay out design is horrific first and foremost. In a world when everyone has some form of amazon prime, Netflix, or Hulu app we all are so used to to the extremely easy video list lay out of this apps. It’s clear those apps have figured out how to display their content and probably isn’t a category anyone else should try to invent a better mouse trap for. That doesn’t stop the hgtv app from trying and they fail horribly. Every piece of video content is laid out in one straight line. Zero multiple rows for any sort of easier access. To make matters even worse it’s pretty embarrassing for Hulu to outshine and display your content better than you do. With Hulu the seasons of an hgtv series are easy displayed in season categories and in order by episode. Dive into the HGTV app and pick a show like fixer upper, for example, you not only have one random episode 7 of all episodes to pick for a specific season or you have the most recent, up to date, season being completely mixed up. Jumping from episode 15 to episode 3 to episode 12. Not even being in actual order. Then the ads on the app are horrific! Not only are they more repetitive than if I was actually watching the same channel on tv but you can’t skip them at all. Leaving yourself wondering why you would ever download this app in the first place to watch your favorite shows when you could just download them on your dish hopper hardrive and then jump on the dish anywhere app to fast forward every single commercial. It’d be a different story if you didn’t need a satellite tv subscription to sign into the all but you do. So to download tour tv provider app instead cause I bet it functions better and you can skip commercial. The horrific commercial experience doesn’t stop there. When we live in the world of digital content why would I ever spend 15 minutes watching commercials on the HGTV app when I can get a Hulu subscription and see zero commercials while watching the same show. Yet another way another app out does this one and that would embarrass the heck out of me if I were hgtv. The app is also very glitchy. I would never download it to my iPhone for the other choices I have above but decided to try it on my Apple TV. I had a loading issue with my 100mps perfect signal strength WiFi while watching an episode of fixer upper. Had to close out the entire app and relaunch it. When I did that the app asked if I wanted to resume from the moment I left off. Not only did it lose connection in the middle of a 2 minute commercial break but it then glitched our, deposits my resume choice, and sent me back to the beginning of the episode. This meant I had to watch 30 second commercial that you gave to see EVERY SINGLE EPISODE YOU WANT TO WATCH, before the episode even gets going, plus the 7 second hgtv logo animation which you’ll get so annoyed by seeing four episodes in to any series you’re trying to watch. Then after that 37 seconds of commercial and logo time I then had to manual scroll back to where I originally chose to be resumed from just to then be forced into another 2 minutes of unstoppable commercials before I was finally returned to my show. Miss something you want to see again right before the show goes to commercial? To bad! You can’t go back once the commercials have started. Did you wait for the commercials to end and then rewind to see the part you wanted to? Guess what you have to watch those same commercials all over again! So annoying! HGTV you seriously need to work on your app if you want to stay relevant and not turn off your fan base more than you turn it on with mistakes like this one.
Murf101's Review of HgtvReviewed on 4/5/18 7:14 AM
The apps lay out design is horrific first and foremost. In a world when everyone has some form of amazon prime, Netflix, or Hulu app we all are so used to to the extremely easy video list lay out of this apps. It’s clear those apps have figured out how to display their content and probably isn’t a category anyone else should try to invent a better mouse trap for. That doesn’t stop the hgtv app from trying and they fail horribly. Every piece of video content is laid out in one straight line. Zero multiple rows for any sort of easier access. To make matters even worse it’s pretty embarrassing for Hulu to outshine and display your content better than you do. With Hulu the seasons of an hgtv series are easy displayed in season categories and in order by episode. Dive into the HGTV app and pick a show like fixer upper, for example, you not only have one random episode 7 of all episodes to pick for a specific season or you have the most recent, up to date, season being completely mixed up. Jumping from episode 15 to episode 3 to episode 12. Not even being in actual order. Then the ads on the app are horrific! Not only are they more repetitive than if I was actually watching the same channel on tv but you can’t skip them at all. Leaving yourself wondering why you would ever download this app in the first place to watch your favorite shows when you could just download them on your dish hopper hardrive and then jump on the dish anywhere app to fast forward every single commercial. It’d be a different story if you didn’t need a satellite tv subscription to sign into the all but you do. So to download tour tv provider app instead cause I bet it functions better and you can skip commercial. The horrific commercial experience doesn’t stop there. When we live in the world of digital content why would I ever spend 15 minutes watching commercials on the HGTV app when I can get a Hulu subscription and see zero commercials while watching the same show. Yet another way another app out does this one and that would embarrass the heck out of me if I were hgtv. The app is also very glitchy.

Jjjagshduxkdjsnbdjxjsbs's Review of HgtvReviewed on 4/25/18 7:45 AM
I absolutely adore most of the shows on this app. I just find myself not using it as much as I thought I would be because the commercial breaks are a little too frequent for me. I was watching an episode of Good Bones which was 43 mins and ended up getting 4 commercial breaks with 5 commercials each break. That’s 20 commercials for a 43 minute show, and most of the commercials are the exact same every break. It just started to feel a little bit like I was watching more for the commercials than the show. Like I stated before, I love the shows on this app. For the most part the app is great too, but the commercials really make me question how bad I want to watch the shows through this app.

I’m not sure what changed but we used to enjoy this app often up until a couple months ago. So the banner overlay at the top that displays : Home Love TV Shows Search and Settings is stuck at the top of our screen. All the way to the right side it displays Done and green circle with a check mark. The banner is well over 5” and eats up way too much of our tv to even enjoy it. We have tried deleting it to install it again. We have signed out and back in again to no avail. I hope this bug is fixed soon as we miss watching our favorite shows!!
tsto12's Review of HgtvReviewed on 12/7/17 2:03 PM
Great app except for a major flaw. On Roku episodes will restart whenever the time changes to a new hour.... so if you start a house hunters at 10:50, at 11:00 it will automatically restart that episode, causing you to have to fast forward and find your spot.... this has been an error since they redesigned the app.

I really am frustrated with the new update. First. At one point I had direct tv, but we swiped to AT&T u-verse. Now the app won’t update automatically to my new provider. Each time I use the app, I have to go to FAQ choose not seeing my provider and it goes to the right one. Next. It’s not really an app but appears to be in safari as though I’m accessing through safari and not the hgtv app, and it’s not nearly as friendly or nice as the previous app. Consequently, where I used to watch this everyday with my coffee, I generally only watch hgtv once a week. Please fix it. Thanks.

Feels like the Daleks have a new objective - prompt subscribers for their credentials often enough to demonstrate that annoyance before you watch the ad before you watch your program is part of the fun. It isn’t. I’m the same idiot I was when watching yesterday. Likely the day before. Perhaps even the Tuesday before that. And even last Groundhog Day. Prompting for credentials for something paid for on the same device over and over isn’t helpful to the customer, and one must doubt it helps HGTV.

I have the second tier (live a little I think is what it’s called) and DTN says that my subscription does let me have access to the HGTV app. It’s also on there list of apps accessible with subscription. The app has red keys besides almost all of the shows. I’ve always had access until about 2 weeks ago. So I don’t if it has anything to do with there update or if their blocking DTN customers?? I contacted DTN and they put a ticket in but I have not heard anything back. Getting very frustrated. My wife watches this channel the most out of all our other channels!!!

I have Directv Now and previously used the HGTV app with no issues. Recently, the app has a red key on every episode and started giving me an error message. It will not let me stream anything at all. I tried contacting customer service but all I get are computer generated responses with the following message essentially saying that they’re probably not going to ever read my submission much less look into a solution: “We don't have staff available to respond to every email, but all feedback will be shared with the appropriate teams for review and consideration. “

Not many episodes for each of the shows. I didn’t have any issues with signing on. My biggest complaint are the commercials! Look, I’m paying to watch your shows and when I record them on my dvr I can fast forward thru commercials. Have the courtesy to limit how many you FORCE us to watch! You cannot think people will stay with your app when you don’t list your whole catalogue and make us watch commercials that account for about 20% of the total run time.

Constantly crashes. Connects just fine but will only stay connected for about a minute or two before the connection fails or the app crashes.

I love this app. It lets me watch my favorite shows anywhere. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because the final mommy's of the shows cut off before the show ends. Many of the shows on HGTV tell you whether or not a house sold or the sales price of a home in the final moments of the show. This app cuts off before that information is given.

Too many commercials. I never even saw the show!

Can you bring back show like design on a dime. I enjoy Brooks and Mortar. Will there be more than one episode?

Alas, the good HGTV programs are only accessible if you have a tv service provider. Verizon, AT&T and their buddies win again. They don’t tell you upfront that a service provider log-in is required. Oh, they will let me view the trailers. :)

It was working fine until I changed tv / internet providers, but the app won’t let me change it, so I can’t watch any full episodes (just the end-of-episode recaps). I changed it on my iPhone, didn’t affect the app. I deleted the app a few times, still won’t change. I tried signing out of the app, won’t let me. PLEASE FIX!

Neither the iPad, iPhone nor Apple TV versions of this app support activation through DirecTV Now -- not to be confused with satellite-based DirecTV -- which almost all other popular channels already do. Please add support for DirecTV Now soon!

I have entered my TV provider on my iOS device, with HGTV enabled... yet the app will not recognize my login AND will not allow me to enter my TV provider in the app because it only shows the top 8 or so. When I click on "more providers" it says it doesn't recognize my provider. (My provider IS listed in other providers on HGTV.com.) Super frustrated. (FYI, things also are not working when I try to watch on my MacBook entering my TV provider info.) Problems abound.

Such a love hate relationship with this app. I love hgtv and being able to watch anywhere anytime but so few to watch and they come and go so quickly! I also can't get over the fact that the end of EVERY SINGLE ONE is cut off. I hate that soooooo much. I need the end! I hate 2 minute clip. What's the point?? Make me think I have 20 episodes to watch oh nope, Only 3 are longer then 2 minutes.

I enter code so I can log in with my cable provider and keep getting message that it's an invalid code

This had waaaayyyy too many commercials. You can’t even enjoy watching anything because as soon as it becomes interesting it’s another set of commercials (sometimes 4 at a time) deleted it. How can you have s 4.7 out of 5 when I looked st your reviews and most are 1s or 2s. That seem misleading,

But, it will not allow it to connect to COX cable... It use to. How sad a cable company can over ride an app I choose for my personal enjoyment!! Very aggravating!

Giving this a one star because it does not include DirectTV Now in the TV provider list. Most other apps support it now.

Everytime I’m going to turn my phone sideways to make the screen bigger, the app crashes.

I LOVE HGTV so having it in an app is wonderful. Only negative is I would love more show options too.
