Forced to register I already pay for the service. I just want a remote. 15 minutes of set up and running around finding previous bills to complete registration shows disrespect for customers.

Brian Lowe

Great but... Need option to extend recording time for sports events that ALWAYS run past but nobody can seem to figure this out.

Matt Faloon

Where are my channels? Does not display all my subscribed channels. Especially HD sports. Even when you select "show everything" most HD sports are missing. Ex TSN2-5 are missing. Therefore I can't record anything! There is no option to record longer than specified (ex. In case of overtime/delay in games) I would like to know when an update will happen. Thanks

Brendon C.

Keeps Crashing on Moto G App always crashes when I open it up. I upgraded to Lollipop, maybe that's why?

M Ang

WAS AND HAS BEEN!!! Its too bad that it no longer works after upgrading my GS5 to 5.0. Worked very well before had to give it a 1 star so I could type a review it's a zero star right now as it no longer works. But was a 4 star before and on iPhone it's a 5 star as it is very very good better details ect. BELL ya gotta fix this Yesterday year!!!!

Greg Ayotte

Lacking all PVR options! This is not as good as my iPad version or the one for my old phone (RAZR hd) Hope Bell updates this version soon...very annoying that it is not truly a full featured app.

Todd Molloy

I can't watch my tv on my Nexus 5:( I thought it would be great to watch on the go or at work and the only thing that doesn't work is being able to watch TV all I get is to reset my hard line what's the status of it is connected and will not see its connected. Please fix this my 5 month loves her TV.

Irmela Dorogi

Not working It worked a few times when I first downloaded it and now it tells me that it will not record that I could only use 5 recordings per 15 min time frame when I have not used it in over a week and only tried to time for 1 recording please fix it. Also it does not look nice it looks like someone designed this who was rushed and did not know what they were doing and did not care about the esthetics of the program at all.

A Google User

Too limited so bell can upsell you 4100 works well as a pvr when you add an external hdd to it... but bell didnt get a piece of the profit, so this app wont work with my setup. Typical bell greed above customer service!

Arnold Schellenberg

No longer works for recording I considered this app valuable (and powerful) when I'd initially installed it. But now it only responds with a msg saying the recording is NOT set.

Samantha Bauer

Poor App Compared To IPhone Version Missing all of the options that the iPhone app has. Needs to have the extended time options, channel selection option, PVR scheduled programs view. If there are any recording conflicts your program just won't record and you don't have the option to skip any others that may not ve as important. This app is definitely lacking all that it should have. I have this app on my Android tablet and it has everything needed, only the phone version needs tweeting.

Marsha Williams

Never worked I downloaded this app when it first was released and it did not work on my galaxy 2. I called Bell customer service and they said it will work in a couple of months let's say time passed now I have a galaxy 3 and it's 2years old and this app still doesn't work. Come on Bell Canada we pay soooo much each month an app should not be a problem. Please fix

Tek Savvy

Unable to launch on Moto G 2nd Gen running Lollipop. I would expect issue to resolved by now given Lollipop has been out for over 5 months now. Tried to email [email protected] and the email bounces back. Real shame, when it does work it is very handy. More reason to cut the cord with Bell.

amir chabok

Good app Most people don't realize how this app works.. First of all, you cannot watch TV with this certain app, bell already has " Bell TV" which let's you access the channels you want. Secondly, in order for this app to work you have to have your box connected to the internet via ethernet cable. I think this app works perfect for its purpose but it would be nice to get all these features in one single app.

Natasha M

Doesn't work with lollipop! Since upgrading to lollipop this app does not work. Please send out an update so I can use this app again.

Michael Kolach

Where are all the channels? 1437? I try to record a hockey game only option is standard def, 3 other games on in HD when I get home and go into my guide I have 1437 HD on it so why isn't it on this app? This and no search are my only complaints.

Sand Wongsta

I'd give no stars if I could No longer works on my Samsung gs5 after lolipop 5 update boo. Sent failure report no action.

Alexander Simakov

absolute crap Your login fix did not work....can't login period. not on wifi...not on cellular network. what a disappointment. I expected more.

D Correia

Poor I should be able to see and manage my Timers and PVR schedule. Needs MUCH improvement... long overdue for an update.

Flywithbart Flywithbart

Crap Seriously. Don't install. Doesn't work properly and is clunky like it was written by amateurs. Tech support told me 6 months ago they were releasing a new version at the end of the current month and I'm still waiting. I expect better, God onky knows their service is expensive enough to have an up to date, working app.

D Parenteau

Loved it when it worked No longer tells me that I can only do 5 recordings per 15mins...all I did is try to record one show...I tested it with HTC M8, HTC M7 and HTC DESIRE...still not working...please fix it. Still not working after recent update.

Bruno Pavan

Crap app Installed on nexus 4 crashes as soon as I open app... send report?? ... Sent app to trash bin instead. Waste of time!

A Google User

Can't find the amount of space available The first question I have when using this app while away from home is... How much space do I have left, so I know whether or not to delete recordings to make space for my faves. The information is available to the app, but I can't find how to display it, and I have to manually add it up.

Tony Stretch

Crashes since Lollipop!! Would give this a 4 star but since I upgraded to Android 5.0 it crashes when I launch it. If Bell sticks to their usual update and bug fix pattern, we should see it working some time in 2016! As usual with bell they are quick to take our money and slow to respond to usability issues.

roger macgillivray

Was good but doesn't work anymore Not sure what's wrong but it just says it's trying to log in now and wont go further, deleted and redownloaded the app and still doesn't work.

Matthew Macknak

Totally Useless for Android Just installed this app on my Galaxy Note 4 and will be uninstalling after writing this review. This version is basically just a guide, no access to any PVR settings or controls.

Barry Ferguson

Useless Uninstalled and reinstalled, cannot access the guide, only what has already been pvr'd...thanx for nothing Bell.

Randy Nerbas

Not working after Android 5.0 update Lollipop broke it. I assume that it will be fixed, in the meantime I can access the Remote PVR on the Bell website. A couple of things to mention: 1) for those who are missing channels, try unchecking 'HD On' on the Guide page. That has worked for me in the past. 2) for the guy having issues extending recordings, that option is available for recording you have set. Look under 'Timers' and click on the recording you want to extend. This doesn't work if the recording name and the guide don't match (which occasionally happens and is annoying) but normally it works. Would be nice if it just used the 60 min default for sports but that's a different argument.

Steve O'Brien

Log in fails App always worked but now can't even make it past the log in screen. Crashes asking me to send a report. Please fix.

Miray Zahab

Not for FIBE TV I can see the guide but cannot record anything nor watch anything nor access my PVR... Can you please fix it

Cory Moores

This app hasn't worked since upgrading Android to lollipop on my gs5. Loved it b4 the upgrade and really miss it. Come on bell/developer please fix this app to work again! 5 stars b4 update, 0 stars running lollipop

Tom Sim

Doesn't work. Don't waste your time Crashes. How do I give 0 stars

Greg Holt

Does not work. Says five recordings in 15 min is reached Tried Uninstaller and stared over. Still junk

Philippe Carrière

Just won't start It worked on my S3 for 2 years, it worked for 3 or 4 months on my S3 and today it closes with an error immediately when I touch the icon. What happened ?

Paul Pucci

Not working Will not turn on. What's going on with Bells Apps???? My TV app also isn't working. I've been waiting for over 3 weeks for Bell to resolve the issue. Still nothing. Now this app won't even start up at all. It gives me an immediate error saying it is gonna shut down right after you press it to start up.

Nate A

Doesn't open. Forces close. Doesn't work with Sony Xperia Z Ultra with Android Lollipop.

Randy Cooper

Crashes Instantly It needs a major overhaul.

Josh Fullarton

Garbage, like everything else Bell. Download and it won't open. Crashes constantly. Just about Fed up with bells garbage.

A Google User

Poor suppprt If Bell is net going to upgrade their software I'll be leaving for Shaw when my contract ends. This is unacceptable for a company this large. Widgets are also needed for ease of use.

A Google User

Doesn't work android 5 Can't believe how a company like Bell doesn't keep up with OS updates... Last update was in 2013.... Are you kidding me Bell..all you have is 5 crappy apps to keep up with..

Michael Marsonet

Doesn't work Since I've been upgraded to Android lollipop this doesn't work. Even after an upgrade today. You would think Bell a Mobile company would have this figured out by now!

Tracey Moore

Was great when it worked Pre Lollipop Loved this app but disappointed that it has not been updated to fix crashing on startup on lollipop.

Shannon Groat

Won't work Try to open app and get a message saying Not Working! Fix it Bell - I expect to be able to use everything that comes with my subscription

Patti B

Can't even open the app now This app WAS amazing. I can't open it at all since I switched to the galaxy s5. And I have Uninstalled it and reinstalled numerous times. It's a dud now. Please make it work with the S5?

Glenn Watson

Needs Update to Work Worked fine on galaxy s3 but upgraded to HTC One M9 and app will not even start. Bell mobile tech support says phone is compatible and could not offer any more help. Bell if you are going to make an app and sell the phone please make sure you support them.

Ed Gilchrist

No longer works Since updating to lollipop 5.0 the app does not work

Rose Gosling

I have this on both my phone (Samsung Galaxy SII LTE still running JellyBean) and tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 with KitKat) and it worked just fine until a coulle weeks ago and now it just crashes upon opening :(

Alan Burns

It quit working when my phone upgraded to lollipop. . Have uninstalled And reinstalled. It just shuts down as soon as it starts.

eastwest guy

Sure seems like Bell abandoned this app This app sorta worked on and off and was great if you forgot a show was on but werent home to PVR it. But for the past 3 months it won't work at all on my S6 Edge or my Tab S. Everytime I open it I get that familiar "unfortunately satellite PVR has stopped" message. And this app hasn't been updated since December 2013. What gives, Bell?

George Bishop

This app needs to be updated!!! If you check the compatible phones they are all from 2012 or earlier. Take it down or state this fact before we waste are time trying to get it to work, Thanks Bell I have been supporting you for 40 years on home and then mobile phones and sat TV and this is all you can give me. Maybe you expect me to ditch my new S6 and find my old S2 so I can use this crap program.

Tim Mayer

App does not launch. Judging from numerous reviews here Bell appears to have abandon this app. Huge shame because it used to be awesome. Bell should remove this from the app store if they refuse to support it.

Peter Arth

Won't even open I wish I could give a review, but it crashes before it will open. Uninstalled and reinstalled, still won't open. It's too bad, because it's a feature I wanted with my PVR.

Gavin hartz

It doesn't run on my phone anymore. Everyone I open it every time I go to open it says "Unfortunately Satellite PVR has Stopped". Tried re-installing it but same problems.

Tim Beals

Does Not Work App constantly crashes on the Galaxy S5 running the latest version of android. I used to use this all the time to setup recordings or reminders. This app needs to be fixed.

Warren A

Can't connect Installed on my Samsung S6 edge phone. App won't load...keeps saying it's stopped and then returns me your the main screen. Tried uninstalling and reinstalled but with no luck. This needs to be fixed ASAP!

John Murray

Takes forever to login seems to never work any more This use to be a great app when it works sad a company like Bell can't get this right shame on bell

A Google User

Works Great! Loaded the APP and has worked perfect! HOLD ON! Looks like the app no longer works! I guess Bell wasn't making any money off of it so they've cut it loose. Too bad I used it numerous times as it came in very handy. Oh well, like they say all good things come to an end. Thanks Bell.

Shawn Ferguson

Useless. Won't start This app simply crashes on start up. Can't get it to work no matter what I try. Don't waste your time. UPDATE: tried to email support, the email bounced saying that the address doesn't exist on bell's server. How's that for support hmm? Very bad customer satisfaction with this company.

Trevor Green

Crashes on open Used to work good. Now crashes immediately. Useless now

Brett Lebersback

Galaxy note 4 Lolipop 5.0.1 App does not work on android 5.0 and up. Needs to be updated. Will give more stars when fixed

Richard Szymanski

Doesn't work I don't know why this is even available for download. Google should take it down until Bell wakes up and fixes it.

Evan Berry

Garbage!! I pay for a service so I could have flexibility on when to watch shows. The only way to record a show is for me to do it manually at home! App just simply does not work and bell has not come up with a fix for it let alone a reply to me as to why it doesn't ! Failed app, failed customer service!!

Philippe Carrière

Just won't start It worked on my S3 for 2 years, it worked for 3 or 4 months on my S5 and today it closes with an error immediately when I touch the icon. What happened ? UPDATE: 5 months have now passed and still no t working

John Setterfield

When I was using a Samsung Galaxy S3 the app worked pretty well although it occasionally wouldn't display all of my subscribed channels. Since I upgraded to an S5, the app doesn't work at all.

Martin Leuschen

No updates for almost 2 years. Crashes immediately on my Android Lollipop and Marshmallow devices


bell remote pvr since the upgrade mid December Bell's remote pvr doesn't work after countless hours with bell they promised to call me back with a solution 10 days have gone by still no response. it also doesn't work on my tablet both Samsung both from bell

Jenniffer Geldart

Wont work on new phone Used app and LOVED it on old SAMSUNG have LG G3 and says app stopped. Wont work. Grrrr loved it...y wont it work on new phone? Fix and will raise rating cause loved it before. Help!!!

George M

App closes Is my phone to fast for this app?, I remember having this app 3 years ago on a dual core it ran fine.. Now I see it for a split second and closed down, the app just closes, doesn't even stay up for a second, cleared cached restarted the phone reinstalled...

Dave Schwartz

Won't start Crashes immediately on a Galaxy S5 5.1.1. But what else did I expect from Bell? Save your time and do not download.

Evan Berry

Garbage!! I pay for a service so I could have flexibility on when to watch shows. The only way to record a show is for me to do it manually at home! App just simply does not work and bell has not come up with a fix for it let alone a reply to me as to why it doesn't ! Failed app, failed customer service!!

A Google User

Log in very slow Used to work well but past few days the app won't log in. I tried the email link below, but the address does not exist. Nice customer support. I cleared data & cache and tried again... Took several minutes of waiting but it finally logged in.

Todd Scheven

Doesn't even open without crashing Aug 2015 - POS app. Don't waste your time. Installed on a Nexus 6 on Rogers for about 2 minutes, then I removed it. . . . . Tried again today, Sept 8, thanking maybe they updated and fixed it. Nope. Still a POS that dies immediately upon start up.

Ken Jacobson

Stopped working It worked okay on my Samsung S3.. but after upgrading to a LG G4 the app wont even open anymore.. should be a rating of ZERO because I can't even use it anymore.. it was maybe a 3.5 on my old phone.. any chance of Bell using some of the extraordinarily high service fees I pay them for TV services to fix the app?! Unlikely I suspect..

Shannon Groat

Won't work Try to open app and get a message saying Not Working! Fix it Bell - I expect to be able to use everything that comes with my subscription...had to reinstall - hope it works this time or will give 0 stars and unistall for good....and it still doesn't work!!!!!!!! Nice job Bell

Chris Bogart

Poor App.. The program guide is horrible. It only shows some of the channels I subscribe to. How am I suppose to program my shows with a partial guide. Also when I search for a show it only brings up shows I have recorded. Please fix the program guide issue......

Kyle deSmidt

Doesn't work on android I have tried this app on 2 different Samsung note 3's and on my brand new note 5 all powered by bell. And it will not load the app. It crashes automatically.

Marlin Lichti

Can't even open it! What is going on with this app? It worked great, then my phone OS updated...& now when I try to start it, it just crashes! I have re-installed, & nothing! Not even a note here to acknowledge the problem & say that it's being worked on? This is total crap!

Brad Kelly

As everyone stated It doesn't set the pvr. Period. You will lose your show, if you didn't remember to set the pvr manually, from home, before you left. Useless. Look at the amount of negative, 1-star feedback. Gross that a large company can't/won't do better.

Jnotgiven Hnotgiven

Until they fix it, this is useless Crashes on launch on my S6 like everyone else now. If I could give a lower rating I would. Bell needs to update this our remove it. The Apple version works as expected.

Vin Ben

Crashes after lollipop update Bell - one of the biggest satelite providers in Canada and no support or update for this app? You're a multimedia company. You should be up to date with this app. Unprofessional!

Dawn Baker

It's awful This app used to be great. I had it for years. A few months ago it began crashing upon start up, so I uninstalled it. Today I reinstalled it, and again, upon start up, it crashed. Uninstalled again.

Rob McCallum

Completely fails to open on Android 6.0+. Force closes on launch. On a Nexus 5 vanilla installation not rooted. Recently got a new phone. Nexus 6p running Android 6+ Still force closes and refuses to run. FIX IT BELL

Trevor Tracey

Brutal Doesn't display all stations. For instance, can't even use this to record CBC HD....what a joke just like all of Bell's other apps

Catrina Moore

It did work It did work fine and now I cannot even open it. Bell says it us my phone (their product) and do not know how to fix it. (A post on twitter and no respinse either) Just sucks cause I needed to use it and couldn't at a time when I was not home.

Jon Thurgood

Crashes on startup Used to work. Now it just crashes immediately on startup. Tried clearing cache and data, and tried to reinstall. Still not working. Looks like others are saying the same thing. What the hell?

Roslyn Friesen

Crash and burn Installed. Attempted to open, it crashed 100% of my attempts. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Same thing -- 100%. Uninstalled once again, never to be attempted again. At least its consistent.

A Google User

galaxy s5 I have had it for a year now. It use to work. But it stopped recently. I have tried to reinstall but still doesn't work


Doesn't work on lollipop It's been weeks since I signed up when will this app be fixed to work with lollipop? Just crashes. Pathetic that no effort is made to fix the android version

Paul Merdock

Was Awesome. Till stopped working used to : Record what I want, when I want. If your not going to be home, just select your show and record it. It will be waiting for you when you get home. Waiting for service to resume.

Wayne Rowbottom

"Stopped" This is not worthy of a Canadian telecom giant like Bell. What is the problem Bell? Get this working or stop providing it.

Tyler Bonneville

Doesn't work I would give this 0 stars, but that's not an option. I cannot open this app on my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A) or on my cell phone (LG G4). Its not worth the data used to download it.

Tim Pearson

This app is junk Will not work on my Samsung S4. Only crashes when I open it. Can't do nothing with it if it won't open.

Dag Wood

Worked great on my Galaxy S3. Does not work on new S5 Neo. CALLING BELL FOR REFUND ON PVR RENTAL. Not getting features of ability to remote PVR Thus not willing to pay for rental.

Marc Knight

Stopped working Was great now getting max recordings in 15 minutes msg. Tried unistalling, resetting pvr etc to no avail. Useless app now.
