No Chromecast support Can't cast videos to my TV. Every other viewing app on the Play Store has native support for this. Ridiculous. Uninstalled.

Charles Smith

Poor advertising I have been trying all night to watch a full episode on this app. Every time a curtain advertisement comes on the app freezes up and I have to exit out. Haven't finished one yet. I'm greatly disappointed.

Michael Turner

Good app if you like ads You spend more time watching ads then you actually get to watch your show. I would not recommend this app. I would rate negative 5 stars if I could. Su#ks

Eugene Hill

Hill702 This app has gone down hill, there are way too many commercials and to top it off none of the programs play all the way to the end, whatever they did by way of updates totally ruined a good app, removed, deuces

William Zwick

Buggy + no Chromecast = bad app Playback buffers constantly. The app regularly crashes during commercials and will not restart properly until my tablet is rebooted. Yes, a reboot to fix. No Chromecast? Come on History Chanel, pay a developer to design a better app. It works some saving it from 1 star.

Eric Harris

Support my Provider Charter!! I have requested that you get support for Charter for a couple years and yet you still have not done so. What is the problem? If you are going to have an app that limits content by provider then you should have it with the capabilities to use that provider to sign in.

julie gotcher

This app starts off good then the ad starts and plays on a loop and the show does not come back on. I let it play all night and the next morning the same ad was still playing. If the app worked right I'd watch it all of the time.

Roman Rat

Trade off Cmon guys, I would gladly pay for an app and/or subsription to get a better quality app and no commercials.

Stephen Gosh

Awful advertising setup I watched two thirds of a pawn stars episode before uninstalling this app. Before the last third of the show, the app repeatedly played ads and would not finish the episode. I sat through about 8 before I decided I'd had enough. Incredibly insulting.

Michael Lenoir

This is without a doubt the worst sreaming app i have ever used. Constant ad, after ad , after ad. I will never use any product associated with this app. Steamiing quality is at the lowest level..will uninstall immediately

christopher W

No Chromecast This is absolutely ridiculous, The History Channel and A&E's whole network does not have chromecast support. Its 2015 and every other app on the Play Store has chromecast support, that's why we get these apps so we can cast them to our TV. But now I'm uninstalling!

Craig Spaeth

The ads make you hate what they are selling.. I downloaded this to watch lost in transmission.. it is a great show but I think the ads you sit through are longer than the actual show.. if u accidentaly click on the screen, you will be wisked away to some site to buy their garbage..

John Bush

Love watching the History channel History channel has a great line up and I love using this app to keep up with the shows. Only thing I'd change, and this would be amazing, is adding Chromecast support.

Rebecca Grant

Captions suck! It does not work on HTC phone with Wi-Fi. No button to turn it on in setting or video screens.

Kandace Tipton

Vikings! I'm giving this application 5 stars because it enables me to watch my shows ANYWHERE!

sickolas cage

too many ads advertisement overload...more commercials than regular tv.....that completely destroys the app.....also no way to stream externally

Brian Allen

Doesnt work Installed on Samsung S4. Progress icon spins & spins, nothing ever plays.

Curtis Ramer

Cannot unlock shows, even with a cable provider. I have AT&T for a cable provider, but it's NOT supported by this app.

James Betts

Does not work You need to fix this app. I can not watch none of the shows I fellow. Fix it now. You put an app on the market that does not work; what happen to quality.

Robert Martin

Need fix on captions it not work pls fix I can watch captions for viking

Christy Bundy

History Seriously...Charter cable not supported?!?! Change that and I might love this

Betty E VanDerGeestShidell

History is a great show Wish they could put on a regular channel for people who can't afford cable. So we can enjoy history. Thanks

Alex Mendez

It does not work Videos dont play niether on my note 4 or note tab , had to download it for windows and chromecast support would be nice please fix and i will give it 5 stars

jose Martinez

Needs chromecast Would be way better if I could stream on my chromecast

david deutsch

How about Chromecast support This could be a great app with Chromecast support.

Travis Jahns

Makes me hate CVS. Chromecast support would be fantastic. My problem is the app constantly freezes during the commercials and no amount of waiting fixes it.  This happens on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, on my Nexus 7, and my LG G3.  Specifically the CVS commercial is the worst and always freezes.  Several times I've had to completely skip episodes because it has a CVS commercial I can't get past!

Bryan Bayless

No Charter? FYI, Charter is the FOURTH largest cable provider in the US, operating in 29 states! Can't imagine why it is not in your list. Irritating. Uninstalled.

David Arias

Really great Is a good app for those who appreciate history at it best

David Dickter

Commercials Dominate Way to many commercials. History Channel should be ashamed of themselves.

Katie Perry

History Lover Anything in our History to gain knowledge of all era's.

Gabriel Tozar

How is it that a company like Cox Communications ISNT one of the cable providers listed???? Really??

Laura Dominguez

Knowledg is Power To understand history future events to be made, one must understand the legacy and truth of past history unfolded.

priscilla mitchener

history #channel pri it's were the history's at .

west roop

Good app Almost everything else has full episodes exept big rig bounty hunters please add some ASAP

Maksim Gayduchik

Trash Trashy app that does not work half of the time. And 8 ads in a row. History chanel failed yet alagain

Andy S

It's good Sometimes it freezes and I can't watch the shoe for more than a minute or two.

Melissa King

App never worked Just downloaded & it won't open. Shows logo & then an error msg. Has never worked!! Crap!

Andrew Wilson

Doesnt have any gangland episodes


Subpar Limited selection of episodes (c'mon, only the last 3 episodes of Vikings available?) and no Chromecast support. This app is useless to me.

Luke Bettelyoun

The same commercial over and over... ugh it makes me wanna throw my phone and seriously I can't search to find my place again without being cycled into anywhere from 4 to 8 more commercials and definitely that damned sonic one again... I'll never buy their stupid milkshakes again. You're better than this History

Joseph Correnti

Too many commercials.! Way too many commercials, and ads. And these ads will repeat themselves 2,3 times in cessation. I use this app less and less. Too bad, the content I downloaded this for is good.

Ted Capiendo

Frustrating viewing experience Video would sometimes get stuck on ad and not resume. Video needs a proper resume function because of all the video hangs. There should be a max number of ads per video; when trying to resume video after multiple hangs, ad viewing time can surpass actual show length.

Christie Ferrara

Waste of time Too many commercials,crashes,restarts from beginning, can't fast forward anymore, if you do fast forward be prepared for 5 more minutes of commerials. I've quit this app and will wait for reruns on tv! What a waste of time

Rob Slusser

Horrible App! Poor image quality, crashes, can't go back to where you left off, and worst of all, an insane amount of repetitive commercials. Pathetic execution History Channel. Just not worth my time. Plenty of quality programming on other apps with far less frustrations.

Paul Haggard

It is a good I just wish they wouldn't have so many locks, on some of the programs I'd like to watch from my phone.

Jeffery A. Williams

Abysmally Frustrating Streaming Experence on Tab4 Impossible to pickup where you left off. Random access "scrubbing" triggers all previous commercials, often in duplicate or even triplicate. Programming can be sluggish and breaks up while commercials are immediate and play flawlessly. If only the History content was equally as responsive - Sigh.

charles barney

Commercials Works great until you get to a commercial. Sometimes the commercials loop over and over and over and over and over again. Most of the time can't get back to your video after the commercials are over.

jerron pierro

One more commercial About to throw phone if there is another commercial

Regina Fetty

Why bother We live where you cant get cable because houses are too far apart. Want to watch shows and you cant get anything but commercials. So why bother having the app.

Don Knight

Thanks! Pawn stars is way to much; once a week is enough for watching people getting rip off.

Daniel Udriste

Not working after the latest update!!! It crashes constantly when I try to log in with my provider. Can not log in with my Xfinity account after the latest update! Why are you releasing in update if it makes the app to not work anymore ???

Armenua M

No Chromecast connection. I DVR things because I hate the commercials. You all are gonna have to adapt to your audience.

zillion hydro

Just crap It seams only the commercials will load not the show. How bout yall fix this already. If i could i would give no stars

Bradley Jacobson

Terrible for watching videos! Your app is just about the worst I've seen for video playback. There are a ridiculous amount of advertisements and you show the same ones 6 times in a row. It takes forever to load. I've been trying to make my way through an hour long episode on and off for about a week now. You guys have heat programming, but this app needs to be a lot better!

wesley Bahrt

Almost unwatchable Soooo Many advertisements that the app is almost unwatchable. Not only were there 8 breaks during 1 show but some of the advertisement breaks had upwards of 10 30 sec commercials each. I'll just watch on tv.

angela sisneroz

Waaaay too many commercials, same one over and over. This is why I've stopped watching Texas Rising. At least if I could cast it, I could mute them, UGH.?.......

Joshua Kowenski

Slow, non-working App History Channel...your app, in my opinion, should have a "false advertising" label attached to it. No matter what I choose to watch, it will not play. No matter my location, wifi area, Internet connection or 4G....nothing....EXCEPT, of course, you're one or two stupid commercials that you replay. FIX IT ALREADY!!!!

Erik Wolf

Terrible Ads repeat over and over. Queue doesn't consistently keep progress. Video jumps all over when rewinding or forwarding video. Please fix love the shows on your network!!!

Caleb Adams

Well... It's free...too many crashes. This could be great but is in need of a massive overhaul!

Jennifer aikens

Love all the History channel shows Wish the had more choices unlocked

Michael Parker

History Nothing but the best baby.. God bless all the men and women who died for me and the world people.. Never for get... Rest in peace.

Andrew Tullos

Favorite shows history channel also pawn stars AE channel Americans pickers funniest jookers. Funny emails send me emails

Cory Marx

App freezes UP After commercials, which are way to many the app just freezes and your program stalls out. Very Disappointed!!!

Daniel Leon

Always freezing When I'm watching a show, especially Hangar 1 it's always freezing and takes me to commercials. It's really annoying.


Danny deserves the best of the greatest! He is a great person who truly cares for others. It is nice to see that in AMERICA there are still good Men and Danny an his team are just that.

Kirk Nichols

Can't even watch... The app looks great, but nothing will pop up to watch.. help me figure this out & I'll give a 5 star rating bcuz I LOVE the History Channel.

Pastor CB

History I love History & that which I didn't know was taught to me via the history app & television channels

Marty Altman

Commercials are too repetitive Who would want to advertise on an app that shows their same 30sec commercial SIX times repetitively on commercial breaks?? Please revise this part and you'll have a great app!

Scott Schmit

No AT&T U-verse as a provider Can you add AT&T? I get H and H2 and would like to watch from my mobile sometimes. Thanks.

Zack Perry

Missing shows In the description it says you can watch the show vikings. I search vikings, and something totally different comes up.

Mike Marshall

Worst app in the world! 43 minute shows contain so many inline ads it will drive you crazy! During one show the SAME Q50 ad was repeated over 10 times along with many other ads. Never again. History Channel is JUNK...

Charles Baker

No chromecast support How lame no chromecast support. Even their website blows because it just black out the picture on the TV but sound works. Uninstalling this useless app

Rob Messina

The BEST channel TO watch! The app isn't half bad! It keeps up to date with everything I like! SO it's A-OK in my book!

John Adamson III

Slow and unresponsive App takes too much time to partially load and the search feature continuously searches without showing results. Uninstalling without even using.

David Thompson

Too many commercials and AT&T is NOT on the list of Providers.

Jeff Glenn

Ap plays ads over and over. Can't watch shows

Bill Dunn

History Channel The History Channel and the Discovery Channel basically the only two channels you need!!

michael scofield

No cox cable login Needs chromecast too

Matthew Tobin

Can't watch any full episodes "Watch Vikings" "There are no full episodes available for this show"

Erik H

Videos aren't playing! Used to love watching my favorite channel on the go but no longer! When I try to play video just goes to a blank screen and takes me back to the list! :-(

Laura Hughes

Glitches I have had nothing but trouble with this app on my galaxy tab pro. It constantly glitches out and the video will not play but the sound is there. Sometimes the ads will play four and five times in a row. Please update this app I love your shows

Brian Gray

I can't get it to work... period. And yes I successfully signed in with my Cox account. Still won't work. Say it will. Says it's going to. Says I am logged in and my video is going to start soon. Then we're sorry history has stopped.

Matt Vernon

I just want you to know that this is my favorite channel. I pirate all your shows to my tablet because your app is pure garbage. ads come up instantly and play without any issue. the program, however buffers every 30 seconds to 2 minutes and on average the buffering lasts 7 to 15 minutes . A few times it buffered for a half hour. video streaming isn't some new technology.... you make me feel like it's 1994 and I'm back on dial up.

Brian Mcmspi

Ads galore and low volume Too many ads. The volume on some episodes are too low especially on American pickers. Sad when you can hear your neighbors car running and that's louder then the episode. And if you accidentally minimize the window or touch the screen? It stops the episode and bam throws in a commercial. Sometimes 3 commercials of the exact same product shown 3 times like a record skipping in a row!!. On demand on my cable provider is way better. Uninstall.

karen lyles

Not Impressed I just downloaded this app and while watching it it stopped telling me app stopped. Then when was able to watch syarts very very slow it plays mid way and goes back to beginning. Of the episode so didnt get to see all one episode. Now today app not working. Not impressed

Amanda Berry

Love hate relationship I love the app because it is the only way I can watch the shows. I wish you would fix the connection to on problem. It is always pausing to buffer or catch up streaming. And now I'm having problems with the videos loading. They keep failing to load lately . Please fix it so I can keep watching your channel. Thanks

Shane Harley

Does not work. Carp!!!!!!!~ Iv been trying to watch a show for days and it won't load. The commercials load no problem then resets.

Thomas Taylor

Terrible, complete junk! I get that this is a free app but it gives History a bad name! Here is a suggestion, instead of forcing us to use a cable service provider just to use this app why not offer a "pay" app so we can watch our shows without the need for a cable provider.. duh! It never stops amazing me how "slow" these app designers are and narrow minded the folks in charge are. Thanks for nothing, uninstalling this app now, bye!

trish tope

Not compatible with chromecast Why can I not use this app with my chromecast makes no sense make it compatible and I'll give it 5 stars also the app is real buggy

Dara burt

Eh! Loading takes a long time, loads every 10 mins you watch something. Waaaaaaaaay too many ads for my liking! Takes you twice as long to watch a show than it normally would bcuz of ads and time it takes load.

Mike Wilson

Worthless App cycles through the commercials four of five time repeatedly and then starts show over from the very beginning. Tried watching two different shows with the same result. Wish it did what it was supposed to.

Brandie Stahlecker

Keeps closing There are times the app works great, but then there are times where the app force closes as soon as it opens. This lasts for quite a while u til it works again.

Justin Johnson

Needs chromecast I like the app but would love it more with chromecast compatibility and ads that don't keep repeating over and over.

Brad Jackson

Ads repeat themselves I love the history channel and the programming, but the app is subpar. It does a great job of playing commercials...but the playback of the shows are hot or miss. It cuts out to black, or just stops and stars over again and then plays more commercials

Bryan Jackson

Well run! The app runs pretty well theres occasional issues with ads not running properly but not a lot of them. My big pet peeve: you dont have all episodes of IRT Deadliest Roads, youre missing season 1's episodes 1-5 (the ones prior to the crossings of India's Rohtang Pass).

V Fleming

Terrible If I had a dollar everytime the ads part kept messing up I would have enough money to buy a new tv and a yearly subscription to netflix, hulu, and amazon prime. UPDATE: Worthless. Literally and Utterly Worthless. It simply does not work.

Mike McHenry

Wasn't impressed If you don't have a cable account your out of luck. It requires you to use your cable login to get access to the shows. App is slow to load, no chrome cast support, video quality didn't seem to be that good and it played a commercial before the show started that you had to press an X to close the commercial before the show would begin. At least commercials on YouTube are seamless and the video starts playing right after the commercial and they don't force you to watch the full commercial.

Andrew Smith

Ok Video quality is great but 5 ads in the first ten minutes of an episode is crap. I had ad after ad pop up after watching the entire thing. I'm glad I didn't pay for this waste of space

Reymon Nolan

Most shows will not load I was so excited to be able to watch History channel on the go. Signed in and most shows will not load. They just say failed to load over and over. Then when i finally find a show that does work commercials will play over and over. The same commercial 5 times in a row lol. I would gladly pay for this app like i do netflix and hulu+ if this actually worked.

Constance Cosky

Sucks! Starts playing then stalls I've done everything. Taking off my phone til you fix it. Horrible

earl dennis

App is horrible Have tried watching episodes a few different times, has trouble connecting and plays ads all the time. Spent 30 mins and saw 5 mins of my show, 5 mins connecting (I'm on wifi) and 20 mins of the same crappy commercials. Don't waste your time

Sean Haight

Needs serious work Episode stream will constantly restart and I have to watch the commercials all over again. Ads will sometimes repeat 4x per commercial break.

Christopher Closner

Good shows, bad app Plays way too many ads, I got the same ad 4 times in a row before it went back to my vid. The quality jumps up and down, can't go forward and backwards without having to refresh. The episodes are poorly arranged so you can't just start with the first one and go from there. You have to find each vid which is takes a while, and even longer when the app itself is slow

Chris Jorgensen

Frustrated If you start from the beginning it will sometimes work. If you try to resume somewhere after the beginning it almost always goes black and doesn't come back. Lots of buffering too. Like the old dialup days

Rasim S.

Too many ads! History channel ads + google play ads. I don't mind commercials, but there are way too many here. Uninstalled

Eliza Estrada

Big zero stars Not a good app at all. Save the uninstalling time by not installing this app. ?????

Dorothra Walker

Removing Been waiting for months for 3 shows I really wanted to see still just clips so since nothing else worth watching you are being removed! !!

Joe Shmoe

VERY INTRUSIVE - DELETED Why do these a-holes need access to my contacts and photos?

Min Mun

Great app...but Too many much as reg tv show. And forcecloses all the time.

stephanie barnard

Not impressed The number of ads is ridiculous! The video playback stalls and skips. I know it's free, but that shouldn't have to be synonymous with bad.

Crystal Furness

Would be nice to watch It would have been nice to know my TV provider was not part of your group BEFORE I took the time to download your app. I wanted this app to watch your educational programs that you provide ONLY during the day, while I work, and not the reality show cap you put on in prime time. Thank you for NOTHING.

Jerry Stringer Jr

No Chromecast/Horrible Servers I pay a lot for cable and you limit your on demand programming so you can charge for episodes on other locations. That is a bunch of crap. Plus not all of your on demand is 1080P HD that's crap too. If you find a video you want your lucky if it plays. I have 100/100Mb fiber Service also, and that's fiber to premise literally to my house

John Spillmon

Where to start First, the videos will have a mess up rainbow stripe come on it like it's a messed up tv. Then, while watching it the videos the voice sync will go off and it seems like you are watching a old Japanese voice over movie. I would expect more from the history channel I have been watching your channel since I was a kid back when you started Mail Call with the gunny and when you all had great shows please fix the problems Sincerely John Jeffrey Spillmon

Jesse Alderson

Too many ads Video takes to long to load plus with tons of ads that keep playing one after another. Freezes up during the videos.

Schuan Donahue

I pay for cable but no provider recognition This sucks i already pay to have history channel but they don't recognize charter spectrum. Come on history update your providers and my rating might change once i actually get to use the application without having to pay to watch on my phone and roku..

Lorenzo Fernandez

Bugs please fix How do you expect me to watch your shows if I can't get past watching one measly ad. Note 4

Bradley Puckett

Buffering blows on this app I will rate higher when the buffering is fixed. And the adds are a bit overwhelming don't ya think?

Robbie Breese

Won't play consistently Takes me 90 minutes to watch a 44 minute show because I have to end app then reload it after each advertisement. Once I reload it I have to fast forward to the point I left just to watch all the advertisements again then the next section of episode before the next break. Then repeat the process Its frustrating I would like it to just play smooth.

Peggy Hammond

Will not work with my new Android phone. Gets to the logo screen and never loads.

Ray Scholtens

Poor performance This app is a train wreck. More often than not I end up stuck on a black screen that says "your video will begin soon", but nothing ever happens. I have to close and restart it several times just to make it through an episode of something.

Mike Hale

Comercial nightmare I understand that they need to sell add space to make this app possible. However watching the same Comercial 2 and even 3 times in a row is mind-numbing and makes you question you're desire to watch a episode. Never have I found this in one of these apps . Crackle pulls it off with more Comercial slots but never does anyone desire to watch the same Comercial 3 times in a row I don't care how much Subaru is paying you . I really want to like this app I love the history channel . Very disappointed!

PJ Rentie

I truly love this app, butt... This app would get five stars from me if I could: 1-stream video to my TV, and 2-perhaps WATCH A VIDEO THAT WILL ACTUALLY LOAD! I can see maybe, one to three episodes, and after that, nothing loads anymore! This is extremely frustrating because I love watching The History Channel, but this app sucks and truly needs a major re-work. It has the potential of being a really great app if it could ever work as advertised. I'm only giving it three stars because, of the videos I actually was able to watch, I liked.

Keith P

Chrome Cast For the love of all that is holy.. PLEASE add ChromeCast option !!!! 3/4/2016: new update, still no Chromecast. Come on, get with the program. Still not using it.

Mike Northcutt

BUGGY APP This app has a major problem transitioning from commercial breaks to the actual programming. Also repeats same commercial up to 4 times before dumping you out to a black screen where it just hangs. I have NEVER had it to make it through an entire program without some kind of hang up. I guess this is the best they can do seeing that it has been screwed up since day one.

tony sanchez

Good but needs major work The ads are a pain but whatever. However the app stability and loading on everything is a complete joke. Whoever runs the crew of developers should reprimand all of them.

Brittanie McBride

No casting Great if you want to watch shows on your phone but it will not cast to Chromecast

Briahana Walker

Buffered to death I absolutely LOVE History Channel but it take 2 hours to watch one episode of Vikings and half the episode is a duo and frozen video no matter what format (PC, Tablet or Phone) you use to view the episode.

Andrew Grandstaff

Ads crash my phone All the ads 7 in a row wtf and they crash my phone . I have to restart and skip to were I was .. and guess what more ads

Lance Nash

The quality is great,yes there are commercials but its free, my problem is I watched one episode of Vikings not it's not responding. Hopefully I get it back working

Jack Loomis

Works when it wants to Doesn't have my provider, Comcast/Xfinity, and Chromecast support would be a great improvement. Last time I checked, it wasn't there.

Adam Wall

H2 has lost its reason for being It is a MTV channel that want to sell reality crap. As the market share goes uo, the viewers go down with few exceptions.

Crystal Waldrop

Love the history channel but this app is useless. It never let's me watch full episodes Freezes, slow buffering even with 4glte

David Hansen

Useless app. There were only a few shows listed which interested me, but I had to have all my satellite TV info to even look at them! Not worth the hassle nor space.

Sunne Allen

App always just abruptly stops... not sure why. Sky devices phone is what I am watching this App on.


H2!!!!!!!!! Please bring back my H2 channel and programs please!!!!!!! Get this viceland crap off the air!! Now i have to American pickers and pawn stars for hours at a time!

Amelia B

Terrible app. It regularly freezes, lags, crashes, and closes. Sometimes it refuses to load beyond the opening logo. Right now, it's currently stuck on the History Channel's "H" logo opening sequence, despite how many times I've restarted the app as well as my device. If it weren't for this being my only option to watch the current season of a show I want to watch, I WOULDN'T use it.

Rob Aston

Rubbish showing the same advert over and over again not showing program ,don't bother to download

Jeff Rake

Needs to work on Chromecast If it worked on Chromecast I would give it 5 stars.

Nick Hileman

Crapy app Please fix the black screen issues. I'll be unstalling this app. History will be watch on my TV.

Mike Hester

Counting cars Stopped for advertisement and never returned!why?

Samantha Martin

Won't go beyond the open title screen All I see is the big golden H and the word history. The app doesn't go any further than this. Please fix this problem!

Lawrence Guerra

Current issues with streaming I've been trying to watch the latest episode of Vikings for three days now. Very bad or no playback. Please advise.

Lancie Menchu

App is well designed, content seems good, but please add Chromecast support.

James Williams

Good app Like the app view missed shows!!

Brandon Stewart

Ares 8 Does not load videos

Jan Morrida

What Happened? To the original "American Restoration" show?, the new one "STINKS"

edna burbage

History channel Really enjoy the shows. But the app keep crashing

Sean Connors

It's okay, I guess Yeah, I can watch Vikings, but there's no Chromecast support.

Kevin Sanders

I logged in with my provider and it's not playing any of the shows it keeps telling me that it filed to play video

Arnetta Davis

Great app I like watching History Channel any time I like. The app works great

Dana Cole

U surly nit taking swamp people off r u crazy one if the best shows on tv please don't

Ashton Teague

Casting Need to make it possible to cast wirelessly

RB Hines

History Diverse and educational

Ken Blair

Your app buffers too much and you shouldn't have to enter a cable provider to see the the shows you want to watch like pawn stars or mountain men to name a few

Michael Hodgson

Ruined by Adverts As others have said. The app has lots of promise and tends to work well until you hit the first commercial break. Then all bets are off if you will ever get it going again. Be prepared for lots of stopping and reloading and watching the same limited number of ads a stupid number of times.

Jeremy Goodman

Now need cable provider! Didn't used to need a cable provider just a week ago! Now you jumped on the lame bandwagon that forces a user to provide a company! Thanks for nothing! I loved it before... even with the repetitive ads.

Ramon Barton

Not bad, a good idea and I'm thankful. Just need to work out a few more kinks and the ratings will go right up.

Mark Cohen

Where is management? Besides the usual complaints everybody is griping about I need to add a serious one. I wanted to watch The World Wars and it says watch the complete series. I was very interested in watching this and all it has is six clips. I have a cable subscription so there shouldn't be a problem accessing any content. Whoever is running the app should be fired yesterday this is incompetence at its peak. A sixth grader could do better than this upsetting a subscriber is a SERIOUS matter.

John Melchor

App looks good, but is useless I should have listened to all of the other reviews, as this ended up being a waste of time. Best case was the app loaded the commercials fast and played them great... then the show skipped and was low quality until the next set of commercials (which again played well) afterwards restarting the episode completely. I don't know how this app has so many 5 star ratings, seems fishy. For the record I have a good set up (device(s)/internet).

I guess it's ok. I use the app to watch "vikings." Other than that, I have no interest in anything the History (channel) shows. The app is a little lame; the advertising breaks are ridiculous and absolutely annoying. I understand needing to make money from ads, but repeating the same ad three times back to back is a bit stupid... then after the back to back ads for one product, there's another commercial for a different product playing back to back. Mind you, it's the same exact commercial over and over and over.

The Advertisements Suck ! ! I When every other comment is a complaint about the issue with the advertisement loading issue you would think these folks would do something about it. Years go by and there's not even an obvious attempt toward a fix! I think that at this point it is plain to see that they could not care less about the consumers dismay over this troublesome issue! Maybe they think that this keeps the consumer more engaged with the video content? Well from my point of view it just leaves me with a feeling of nausea and anger over having to go through the process of reload the video at every commercial break in order to finish watching what I am already paying for! To the advertisers "I wouldn't buy your products on a bet after having to watch your commercials over and over"! Truly Ad-nauseaum !!!

Joe deRochemont

Again You Suck History app, A & E app, even the xfinity TV go app all suck. Videos won't play, whether I'm running android LP or MM, or even KitKat, Netflix plays beautiful though, always. You people suck bad.

Joey Byars

No good Trying to watch anything with this app is terrible. It plays fine until first commercial. Then nothing plays. Horrible

Loren Lent

Terrible When watching a show, the first segment plays then you get an advertisement after which the app freezes. If you are lucky you may get to watch 2 or 3 segments but rarely an entire episode. Many good shows but too frustrating to deal with when you can't watch the entire show.

Mike Perry

Issues with ads Full episode playback is great and fast in HD but app constantly hangs on ads making it impossible to actually finish an episode.

Vallerie Horan

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 The app opens when it feels like it. Love the shows when I can actually get in the app.

Tony P

Get it together! Loved the app for the 10 minutes it worked properly. Plays ads fine but can't seem to let me finish an episode. Had the same issue with the History app on my Roku. Did you guys forget to pay your hosting bills? Every other streaming app on my tablet is showing full HD with no problem. Only issue is yours. Please get it together.

Chris Siefferman

Pawn Stars While Waiting In long line at Walmart watching history channels breakthrough shows... What line??? Love it!!!

Jake Bradley

Crap The ads run great. But when it gets to your show. Well then it doesn't work at all. What a crappy piece of work. Congrats guys on just one more example of unintelligent american quality.ill shall go back to (illegally streaming it.) Without commercials haha

Josh Takacs

No full episodes of top gear Only reason I downloaded this app. Please get this fixed!

John Woodward

No Google Cast (Chromecast) Support Worthless app without casting support. Why bother?

Lindsey Paulson

JUST DOESN'T WORK Suddenly won't play any shows, AT ALL. It simply turns off saying that an "unknown error has occurred". My other apps work fine. History channel would be more on top of things, you would think. Had to uninstall. Get it together, History


Poor streaming Shows do not continue after first commercial break. Do not waste your time in this sub par frustrating app

Gwen Bell

You can't even cast it to your TV like YouTube and Netflix, so the app is pointless!!

Richard Beckley

Does not work! I get the"H" logo and nothing else. Whoopee!


Sucks Videos won't load. I have great internet access. But when I click on a show it says, an unknown error occurred

Bradon Holley

Can't watch videos I've been trying to watch videos on here cause frontier does not have shows on demand. So was hoping to catch up with forged in fire and won't let me watch any thing please fix

Danny Briggs

Won't play video after going thru couple different sets of commercials

James Blalock

It'll be nice if it worked right Picture quality is great, however the adds make it freeze up. It'll be nice without the adds.

Jackie Foster

Episodes of Join or Die Thank you for adding one episode of Join or Die. Would love to be able to view the other episodes. Would be a five star app if the other JoD episodes were re-posted.

Ron Huffman

History I will not pay to watch any channels that show commercials. I am my own TV provider. Everyone is just getting greedy. You lose more and more followers every day. Time for you to wake up.

jeni price

I like the app but half the time it doesn't work or it has lots of errors. Please fix this! !!!!

Jeff Collins

Satisfied Has a tendency to have trouble loading but all in all good app

LaWanda D

Crappie playback and messed up commercials. The only reason why I got the app for the channel was so I could watch one show which I am finding to be a challenge since the playback is horrible and there are so many commercials it's ridiculous. You would think since I am already paying for this channel through my cable service that there would be "limited" or no commercials, but I guess not. And those same ads mess up the playback and cause the shows to stop playing although. Sorry but this app sucks.

Travis beach

Near worthless If you haven't kept up with a show what better way than an app you can take with you to catch up? Well they only have the most recent episodes so if you need to catch up on more than a few episodes of your show, this will only serve as an aggrivation.

JOSE Ramirez Arce

History I don't like that they lock certain episodes. I also don't like that they don't number the episodes on the description. As in Season blank episode blank. That would make it easier to know where you left off. Last but not least why is it that your app won't let me store it in the As card? It only installs in the phone memory which takes up to much room. Its not a security sensitive app so I don't see why moving it from internal memory to external memory hurts anything.

Shwum Thor

Horrible Will load the 3-5 commercials just fine but only about 2mins of video before saying video playback failed or an error occurred then makes you watch 3-5 commercials again before failing yet again.

R.J. Strain

Bullshit. You have to have cable to watch half the shows Cable is the anti Christ.

Michael Penna

Hit or Miss Some days it will work some days not so much. It gets frustrating after awhile having to constantly restart. Really to bad because History has some awsome shows

Michael Makowski

Get with the times Needs Chromecast Support. Why it don't have it Idk it's 2016 no excuse not to have this feature.

Rick Lane

Good if it decides to work Goes to the commercial breaks, plays some 2 or 3 times ... shuts down. Will not allow you to jump to where you were ... plays commmercials and shuts down again. Has done this for "Vikings" on numerous occasions. Will change rating if they get it fixed.

Sukhanh Chung

2 1/2 Two and a half minute commercial... R u freaking joking. deleting. Five papa johns commercial back to back.

Anthony Valenti

No Chromecast In this day and age, why are video apps being made without Chromecast support? That's just plain silly.

Chris Reeves

super buggy Took 30 min to watch 8 min of video, hung mid episode, did not recover. better to watch shows on youtube...

Sonya Waddle

Videos will not play Swamp people episodes will not play..keeps saying an unknown error has occurred. .please try again later..I've uninstalled & reinstall and still nothing.


Can't watch episodes even with cable I signed in with cable and the keys went away so I could watch "Alone". I can't watch the series because it says error on every video I click. Idk what happened. Please fix. Thank you :)

Angel Perea

Vikings not able at this time. Haven't been able to watch new episodes of vikings since I'm working different hours. I downloaded the app so I can keep up.... The app says you can't watch full episodes at this time, check back later for updates!

Ben Tennis

ill like it more with it having chrome cast on the app it will make my rating up to 5 star with that please consistory with some people gist not liking apple product and having none myself make it hard to use the app on a TV ( yes i know your have it for the roku but simplee it is very flawed at that) for entertainment and a learning experience to the viewer please use my suggestion to improve your app

Murder One

Wish I could give negative stars Came back to this app and now I need a provider? Lame! I have one buts it's of no use, it's buffer city..then freeze! Also I don't think it's right, that people are in a home where the cable is paid for and their family can't access the app because they don't have acct through providor! Never thought y'all would resort to this crap!

Samantha Bartram

Decent app :::Edit: this app doesn't work at all! Don't waste your time. Am uninstalling it until the bugs are fixed. What good is it if I can't get further than the first commercial break without the app freezing and then NONE of the episodes on the show play at all! So frustrating please fix and I'll change my rating once it works properly...

james harrington

Will not play a whole episode without crashing. I don't mind the provider log in or the ads. I just would like to watch a full episode with out the app crashing.

Tim Gray

Broken because of ads Fire your developer, they built an app on top of a horrible ad platform. Ads will stop the video and continue for 20+ minutes, or will stall and just show a black screen. I wanted to watch the content, but your app has driven me away.

jason cessna

Needs work I log in and still can't watch. 1 year later and still sucks! Freezes everytime on the Garnier commercial. Same thing happens on the A&E app

Deanna Flynn

History problems and pluses It is great to be able to catch up on episodes and they do have outstanding series and shows to watch, freezes a lot and will bring me back to the beginning, like I haven't started watching the episode yet, also I have seen the same advertisement run 5 times during 1 commercial break. I don't understand why the same adds run over and over their whole episode either. I don't mind advertising but this is crazy and a waist of advertising space.

Jerome Sabatowich

Simply does not work Can't watch anything. I keep getting a message that History has stopped running. Completely useless. I would give it no stars if that were possible. Uninstalled and reinstalled and still useless.

thomas murray

Great shows but many repetitve advertisements commercial ads repeat and make you mad ..if they repeat the same short boring commercial 15 sec over and over I lose interest in watching the main feature. please make the commercials less prone to repetition fatigue ?

Rowdy Ropp

Dont give me no shortfalls boys!!! You get right into alot of drama yet, the real cold hard facts about logging and the serious consequences that are a result of accidents in the logging industry! I know this first hand!!! STIHL QS brakes may work in a perfect setting but mine failed! I have scars on my neck and jaw to prove it! Anything can happen in the blink of an eye!!!

Craig Cusano

HEY HISTORY: YOU'RE NOT READY FOR NOUGAT Completely unacceptable on Android Nougat. APIs have been finalized and yet all this garbage app can do is show me ads and then crash. What a waste of time. You'd better get this trash turned around quickly.

james conley

Doesn't work I have entered my cable provider and used this on WiFi and mobile data Uninstalled and reinstalled just keeps saying an unknown error has occurred won't play anything except the free stuff if u don't enter a provider Wich I have and it unlocked everything but nothing will play B.S.!!!!

Dustin Red

Stops halfway I've watched two different episodes halfway thru and then it just stays on the black screen. 1st time I waited 5 minutes and 2nd time I left it there for over 30 minutes.

Ebony Robertson

Don't really Hate It Has been buffering a lot over past few days. Stops buffers then goes back and repeat scenes already seen. Tried deleting and adding back nothing cbanged

Brad J

The selection of shows is great however every time a commercial comes on, it does not transition back into the episode. It just simply finishes and freezes, making me go back to select the episode I WAS watching, and what's worse is it didn't save progress so it starts over. Endless loop and just generally does not work.

Steve Kibbie

Cast problems Why can't I use this app with google chrome cast......?????!!!!! Super annoying that something as vast as Google is simply over looked during this app development. Fix and I'll give you ☆☆☆☆☆!! I love the show Alone and would be all to greatful enjoying it via casting to my TV.

Jon Swearingen

Useless Can't use this app to catch up on shows because it don't even have full seasons on it. Why make an app and exclude full history channel content or at the very least the full latest seasons?

Philip Gard

Only commercials work! Downloaded the app to my tablet and the only thing that runs OK is the commercials for 3 min then get unexpected error encountered then more commercials. Deleted app!

Melsong P

Cable companies holding us all hostage Can't even cut the cable cord without having to go ahead and pay for this will be able to watch it on here $4.99 month diarrhea much better deal to buy sling TV and add on the extra package that would give you a History Channel at least should be getting more channels for that $5 when you add the package on the sling TV

Michael Larocco

Cool shows if you can get them to play. The show that are available are awesome. The problem is that you can never get through an entire episode without the POS app crashing. Big wast of time not worth DL till they fix their problems. From the looks of it they have had these issues for quite some time so I wouldn't bother.

Marjorie Cain

This app is CRAP!!!!! Every time i try to watch a show, it shows error or video failed to load POS!!! this app is -5 star!

Anthony Clem

Way too many ads This app is a total waste of good potential it has way too many ads and keeps shutting down in the middle of an episode. I've watched all these stupid ads only for the app to not work correctly where I can atleast watch the full episode of the show I was trying to view. Definitely not worth downloading.

Manuel Parajon

Missing full seasons I wanted to start watching shows ive never seen and I can't because it only offers two episodes out four seasons. Chromecast feature would be amazing so for now 2 stars.

Derrick Dubois

History If u don't already know about the History Channel then you probably won't ever know if your intellect is not at a level to enjoy such an amazing Channel and I don't even know what to say to you you just ain't my kind of people

Brian Leonard

Worst App Ever!!!! This is the absolute worst app ever. It rarely ever plays video correctly. I get to watch video about 10% of the time I try, and 90% of the time it gives errors. I pay cable and use numerous other apps for other channels and have Never had one problem. Whoever designed this app needs to be replaced!

joel reyna

Horriblie###!! $! $ I am running this app on a Samsung Galaxy core prime and I can't even watch one episode of alone I get to a commercial and the commercial won't even load I am there waiting for about 5 minutes to At least get a ad to proceed to my video horrible app

Sarah Tortoini

No cast I would love to watch live from my phone and cast into my TV. No good

Kayla Brunner

Meh! As much as I love the history channel and the ability to catch up on some shows... I wish you could on every show in their selection. Another and the main reason that I have such low marks is the fact that dispite uninstalling and redownloading multiple times, the app crashes. I was able to watch episodes the first day I downloaded the app and haven't been able to since

Justin Reece

Doesnt work. Cant even get through 10 minutes of one show without problems. Laggy video and audio. Constant freezing. Have uninstalled and installed with no solution. I would advise everyone else to not waste your time. A 44 minute show takes an hour and 10 minutes to get through once they add in the commercials. This is seriously the worst app. Dont even work at all anymore.

Ivo Kirkov

Keeps on crashing The app will be great if it stops crashing. What really bugs me is that after it crashes it loses your progress and you have to re-watch all the adds just to get back to part you didn't get to watch... I love the content... but if only it would stops crashing...

Ron Huffman

History I will not pay to watch any channels that show commercials. I am my own TV provider. Everyone is just getting greedy. You lose more and more followers every day. Time for you to wake up.

Andy Velez

Love it Works much better here on Google than on Amazon. Streams really well and like that I can get all the full episodes I miss cause of the different hours the shows are on. Now I will never miss a thing, now if Amazon can only up there game so I can stream it on fire tv ? I'll be set 4 life!

David Morris

Log in fails repeatedly A few episodes have appeared to be available but never start, and log in information fails to save. At times active buttons appear to depress but don't trigger actions; just had to uninstall and reinstall to be able to log in.

Tony Poland

Locks up & too many ads Videos run inconsistently. Smooth for a while, then halting, then locks up so you have to restart. Also, for this wonderful service you get to watch many commercials in a row, multiple times. I almost forgot to mention the cable access verification system that also locked up. Fun times.

Dakota Nicoson

App won't open on LG G4 I installed the app, opened from app store, closed app, and attempted to re-open to no avail. Uninstalled, reinstalled, and did the same thing. Tried to create an account and the app crashed. I was really looking forward to this but I guess I'll have to find something else.

Takashi Kastl

A little behind the rest of the station apps Works just like most others but still hasn't managed to add live stream on their Android app.. get on it HISTORY

sarah beth

Trouble loading shows When I go to the drop down menu and then to shows it says loading shows then freezes and kicks me out not every time but 9 out of 10 it will not load the shows

Jennifer Roeser

I love this app BUT I really love this app. But I have had the Scotch Brite add repeat itself 12 times before the episode will continue.

Joseph DeRisi

You can't watch any actual history on this app unless you have a tv provider. Otherwise your stuck with their dumb reality shows. Waste of time.

Ryan LaRose

Love the app I am addicted to the History channel, and this just fuels it even more. Speaking of which, when is Hanger 1 coming back?

Aaron Johnson

Deceptive It should say in the first line that you have to have a TV provider. I downloaded it only to find it was useless to me since I only have public tv. Wasted my time.

Master Valo

Constantly stops streaming even on Wi-Fi...... needs new INTELLIGENT I.T. people who can make it work as well as way way way way too many ads

Larry Johnston

Stupid It does not open it starts with the big H then it just stop working this stupid. Uninstalling

Him 2

? Sometimes episodes don't play at all and If I actually enjoyed watching the same commercial over and over and over...and over again, I'd give it 5 stars.

Brian Carlson

On add per 2 min of viewing On average there about twenty adds for a forty min show. Scam apps have less adds

Rita Sturm

9 11 story People telling what happened and whay was done after the hit th Twin Towers

Daniel Moss

Keeps your interest Forged in fire and other competition shows that showcase people's talents and artistic ability with a very old practice is always great

Carla Baron

Constantly crashing All this app seems to do is crash. Very disappointed.

Jason Fouch

It says watch the complete series for the World Wars and it's just clips

Trish S

Can't watch all of the shows DH loves Forged in Fire, but we can only watch 1 out of 5! Fix it!

Bill Wolf

Broken says error occurred submit info but directions to location for report is gone...

Liam The Dragon Pirate

Great app You guys should make a viking game we need more of those

Shawn Spencer

Plenty of commercials Plus you need a cable provider to view most of the content.

Clinton Hodge

Love it How can you go wrong here is free

Cable company advertising this app but don't support it, wth

History It's cool I like to watch TV on my phone.

It kicks ass

Thomas Grant

Crashes all the time

Alone In the woods

Stephen Martin

Does not open

Victoria Ashworth

Vikings Loved it. There are more seasons coming?
