Albert Michael Gavina

Not compatible to android lollipop 5.o Not working on my Samsung Note Edge after a recent OS update. Please update and will change my review to 5 stars. Thanks...

Lin Sanidad

Keeps crashing It would be nice if I can actually watch from this app. Everytime I open it just keeps closing... Kindly fix please. Other than that, it's nice to watch on bigger screen. Very clear quality.

Dodi Kempis

Not compatible with Android Lollipop It used to work for samsung note 4 but when my phone automatically updated to android lollipop it wont open anymore. Fix it please!

Stephen Goode

Chromecast compatible! It stopped working with my wife's Samsung Galaxy s5 After Android's latest update, but that's not my main reason for a low rating. The app needs to be castable to devices like Chromecast.

Lashirah Hernandez

I have the same problem like the other samsung s5 users. I just update my phone after that my tfc apps cannot play any of their dramas...pls fix it. Thankssssss... ??

Christopher Pete

Love it so far. I just installed this app and so far no problems. I'm on the seven day free trial. And my favorites are the english subtitles show. I can understand what's going on and what people are saying because I don't speak or understand tagalog.

Chellette Valdes

This app is sucks after android lollipop upgrade I keep calling tfc technical support but customer series always hang-up on me and technical support still not doing anything for new upgrade. Wasting our subscription payment if we can use the app. When is it going to be upgraded?

Ferdeliza Castrence

No good on lollipop This works fine on my tablet until the tablet dated to lollipop 5.0 after that everytime I try and watch a show it crashes. I emailed the developer but never heard back..... so the app is pointless right now and I have to watch on my desktop computer.

Cheryll cruz

Crash At first it i find it ok great even but after the upgrade in my phones os it started to crash and stopped.. i just hope the tech group can fix this asap people are paying for subscription.

daphne cruz

Keeps crashing Love the app but recently keeps crashing. Paid for subscription mainly because of the compatibility with my phone. Now it keeps crashing! Very disappointed

Beverly Oledan

PLEASE FIX! ANDROID 5.0 ISSUE (Samsung Note 3) I just recently bought a TFC subscription but after my phone upgraded to Android 5.0 the app kept on crashing! I thought it was only my phone but as I was reading through reviews of other people I could say that my problem is the same as theirs hence, the upgrade might have not supported the app or something like that. Please fix this issue. I loved the app before when it was perfectly working fine! I don't wanna end up paying £9 monthly for nothing? It is still £9 though if you know what I mean. Thank you!

Leonila Aquino

I can't watch anymore all their shows in my samsungS5 when my device automatically updated the OS. I'll change my ratings if you will fix the problem. I love watching their shows in my phone because it's easy.Please fix the problem. Thanks.

Rhea Barbosa

Same here it keeps closing everytime I try to open some can will enjoy th free trial and decided to subscribe if it's like this it's us3less..

Teodorica Buenaventura

it was great but really needs an update this app just crashes when you try to watch something. My guess is that it isn't compatible with Android 5.0 please fix this great app and add chromecast support to make it even better.

Michael John De Vera

Bakit nagcacrash yun app? Please can you make this app great on my nexus7 device? Nagcracrash po tuwing manunuod ako ng teleserye!tnx a lot..

Charles Hoyle

Just installed 12/24/2014 I will give more when it gets better,4/28/2015 reinstalled. And added 2 more stars

Edna Lwandiko

Recognition I give props for finally recognized filipino drama with english sub and app of it. But still I would suggest it to improve it and add more drama and good video quality where everyone can watch.

Viola Caduyac

This is fucked up After i updated my sumsung s5 it won't work. Please fix it i just subscribe you guys.

Reynaldo De Los Reyes

Stops working It used to work fine but stops workong now. I have a Samsung note 4 with 5.01. I updated my Google play services and the app crashes when I play a file. I gave 5 stars b4 but now ? Please fix app. I am one of your thousands of subscribers.

Angel Angelia

Sherwyn Fabria

Can someone please fix this I already paid for the entire 3 months and two days later for some reason it just stop working. I tried on my tab, on my phone, on my iPad, on my laptop and in our computer but still not working. What the heck is going on.. can someone please fix this.

Adelina Omana

vAniE mimay

sg s5 issue it doesnt work after updating android lollipop 5.0...please fix... i enjoy watching the shows thru my phone coz it comes in handyall the time. ty. 5 stars when it works again.

Raine Salceda

Does not work on Samsung Galaxy S5 After the Samsung update, I noticed that I can't watch it on my phone anymore. Please update your app so it can be available on all phones.

Rogie Golloso

Just view on your Chrome Browser Does not work on lollipop, but you can watch it on your chrome browser, just go to the tfc(dot) tv and it shoot play from there

Rodolfo Jr. Paccial

This app needs urgently needs Chromecast support. This app is great when it works. Half of the time it just quits. Also please add Chromecast support already. This is 2015. Any decent streaming app has Chromecast support. How about ABS-CBN actually invest some money and make a modern and polished app for iOS and Android that is up to date with the current technology like Chromecasting. This app is outdated and needs some serious overhaul.

Gene Pierce

Keeps crashing!its not reliable to watch for my show after I updated my phone I hope this will be fixed soon

Justin R

You need to update your apps, doesn't work with my phone S5, after I've done my update.

herbert anacay

Not working on lollipop 5.0.2 This is amazing app but please fix it so we can use it on new android OS.

Jael Mabuti

So far so good I really enjoyed watching,it feels like im home.

Rhonaly Navasca

This is better than the cable network. More shows, news and movies, no commercial breaks and cheaper. I can even connect it on the tv thru screen mirroring.. =P

Albert Michael Gavina

Now compatible to android lollipop 5.o Now working on my Samsung Note Edge here in UK Vodafone after a recent apps update. Thanks...

Zie Calvelo

Finally signed in Thanks for fixing the issues. This app helps a lot to get in touch with what's going on in the Philippines. Subscription worrh a single penny

Jennifer Delos Santos

Galaxy Note 3 4 stars for fixing the compatibility issue. Thanks! I'll be more thankful when you add the movies in the app, by then I'll give 5 stats. :-)

liezl Baisas

Thanks TFC! It's works on my Samsung S6 now, after the new update! Love it!

Leecarl Liwanag

Nice apps Im in 7 days trial. So, lets see if the apps need money after the trial.

A Google User

Still overpriced as ever! Bring the price down to where people can afford it. A $13.99 priced is not going to donit monthly. More likely should be for a year membership. I'd rather get netflix and pay $8.99 to watch high quality tv shows and movies than this. Recommended tagging the price down will bring in subscriptions to the service. Lis to your customers.

Mary Jane Deligencia

Its a nice app i have no problem watching series ,but why do we have to pay after 7 days not all of us have money to pay i'm just 15 years old i dont have any job its so unfair ive been searching to watch series and that i found one after 1 week its start to sucks pls fix it i cant afford your subcribation :(

Marilou Delarmente

Babe49 I love this app because i can hear news from back home.

Min-ah Song

Annoying. Whenever i want to watch it always says "NO SUBSCRIPTION" what is it? Please fix this. Thank you.

Manny Gonzaga

Stop working on my Note4 Thanks for the update. And getting the app back and working. Making life easier for us in other countries..???


LOG IN PROBLEM was solved now. Internet Connection Problem was solved after almost a week. Any extention of my subscription since we are not able to watch last couple of days?

Angelo Buenaobra

May 2015 update makes it usable again on Nexus 5 running Lollipop Before this update it was totally useless, at least now you can play videos again without force closing.

Jose Balbalosa

The best show in the middle east Wow fantastic


Works now So far the updates seems to be working now for lollipop

CianO MarS

No Subscription? Will this be resolved after 7 days of trial or it's another thing I have to pay for?

Shyrene Achacoso

How to subscribe? My 7 days free trial is over

Pia Epe

Pasion de amor i couldnt find it on the drama list. where to watch?

Jomar Rosento

I install this app.. because I really miss abs cbn shows.. when I open I have 7 days trial. After I open some shows it says you don't have subscription. I just follow the instructions and will not good happen.. please fix it. I give 5 star.

Narzal Noel

Thanks a lot for the update. Works now with Lollipop. Mabuhay tfc...

nel dela fuente

Not working on my Note 4 (sg) Disappointed

sophia hung

lorna villar

This apps need registration I can't watch without money... after 7days free watching i can't watch again

Asha Nhor

Why I'm not see full episode of a movie?????

Marisa Allen

Everytime I go to play a episode it crashes. Thanks for the fix. I just wish it would keep track of were you left off.

miles Delacruz

Both channel I love it both

herbert anacay

Thank you very much for fixing the lollipop issue!!!

Maria Engeline Ong

Phillip Ching

Thanks for update now its working need another update Thanks for the update now its working with lollipop. However, there is no option for full screen when watching the video. I can still see the notification bar on top. Please fix this so that full screen can be done thanks

Evelyn Tawingan

Wanna lovely tv


I will surely love this app but... why is it not free? why is it 7 days trial only? how are we going to watch filipino tv shows.. how come? Im only 13 years old, I dont know what im going to do when he trials ended.. I cannot find a website like this kind. ??

Home Mechanics

Slow to update It's the 19th of Nov still showing news from the 17th of Nov. Can see more up to date news on SBS Australia free to air tv? Why can you not show it even one hour after it went to air in Philippines? Even watching morning news in the evening would be good but a 2 day delay is shocking. Two day old news is not news anymore? Pull your socks up TFC

Annie Le

The app is broken I pay £8.25 for a broken app that doesn't even work properly. I watch subtitled shows as I am not Filipino but enjoy watching Filipinos shows. Unfortunately subtitles is created one day late so I have to wait one day later before I can watch the next episode. Meanwhile Filipinos viewers can watch the show ahead of me while I have to wait. Also there are alot of missing shows on the app that doesn't show up but is visible on the website.

Raysa Daza

Trying it out I haven't it yet, but can you guys pls add subtitles too. My kids really like watching it with subtitles. Thanks

Gabrielle Angela Pontoriero

How come I can't watch movies on my android? There should be a cast button, and... why does the show restart everytime I go to a different app. It should only be paused.

Roy Madrigal

OK app when it's working The app is promising, good way of watching TFC... Things that stunting the apps are broken search engine, buggy video player, no movie directory, just to enumerate few... Menu is broken too, accessing it renders it nonfunctional... This app can be very robust if bugs are solved... To the developers, test in multiple devices and platforms, if you don't have access to that build a community in your forum... We are great but we achieve excellence when we all work together... Hope the app gets better...

Mutyaba Shifa

How come my data is consumed even on the 7 days free trial? And why can't I watch if I hv access to the Internet to the fullest ? It's not fair

Wilson Bradley

The lamest GUI interface for a paid subscription service You would think since it's a paid service, they would spend a little and make a nice usable interface.. It's crap. Most people will also be using set topboxes at low resolution. Hard to use. O

Hadji Mata

Big Screen TV.. It is perfectly working fine in my mobile for years. For years, they didn't add some features. They are working so hard about compatibility issues. When I connect it with my big screen tv. I had to stand up to play the next episode. I hope it will just keep on playing with the next episode until 3 to 5 episode. I hope I could set how many episodes I could watch. I hope there are also a pay per view options. They are already doing banking in mobile. Store options for selling DVD or Bluray for your favorite Drama etc....

Jess Jazzy

Lousy Network I choose to unsubscribe in this app and my home TV. Useless idiot! It's better the GMA and more fun than dramas.

Jazshua Andes

I like the app so I can watch all the exceptional soap operas, however I personally believe it should be free but then again The Filipino Channel needs to make money.

Ervin Gonzales

Don't waste your money here. Shiiit player mababad3p lang kayo. Just watch it online for free you will have less trouble. Videos here only play sounds.this is a scam.. swerte nyo d pwede 0 star rating.

Gina Lopera

Too much bugs Video starts playing sound but screen stays black. No matter speed of internet the problem is consistent. Please fix this!!! Has great potential

Hiper hel

Good but no CAST button Pls add a CAST button pls so we can watch on the big screen

Angelica Lopez

I've finished the 7 day trial. It worked out so well. How do I purchase this app. I can't figure out

Chuck Aries Salvador

Update + chromecast Please always update the lates show like in the website. And please add a Chromecast compatibility!


Not mobile friendly Some times the video is not working. And if you lock your phone and unlock it the video will start over.

Gary Holly

Chromecast Chromecast and apple TV support are greatly needed, make it easier for my wife to watch tfc

Jennie Ordeniza

Its should be free! TFC should be free of charge not just free for 7 days as we used internet while using it plus subscription? Double payment then aye... Hope and wish its FREE!!!

Laiza Lacuna

Nkakapikon na! every time manunuod ako pg cclick ko na video while loading lagi nagsstop at ngbback sa home screen ko I did it again and again more than 10times bgo pa totally mgplay yun show tsk pls improved!!!!

shanelle gibbs

Needs fixing, then Would be 5 stars Every time I watch a subtitled show on my phone the picture will freeze and the audio keeps playing many times over. Please fix

Francis Albert Jacobo

Needs a redesign Dont like the interface...make it similar to youtube..hirap mag navigate...add chromecast capability

A Google User

Still overpriced as ever! Bring the price down to where people can afford it. A $13.99 priced is not going to donit monthly. More likely should be for a year membership. I'd rather get netflix and pay $8.99 to watch high quality tv shows and movies than this. Recommended tagging the price down will bring in subscriptions to the service. Lis to your customers.

Ana Pura

I hate ds app....wen i play it shows no subscription...i allready subscribed and i watch some drama but wen i continue it shows like dat...

Naida Taruk

Loved it I love it so much it's cool to watch as we forget our loneliness


Great app I used my smartphone to watch TFC. However for some reasons it stopped working. I cannot play the videos I like. Until my daughter downloaded this app. I didn't even know it existed. The videos appear clearer and it switches to full screen right away when you press play. I hope there is a tab where you can put your favorite shows for easy access. It is annoying to be scrolling a whole list of shows before you reach the show you want to watch.

marjorie abagon

please fix app doesn't work. stays on the tfc page.

Jenry Garcia

The epsiode of the show that I always watch when I clicked to that show always watch when I clicked to that show The episode of the show that I always watch is now saying "No Subscription" whenever I click to that show always watch .Please fix the problem ASAP. Please & Thank You

Venneth Santos

Sub Par App Usability If you're charging more than netflix and shomi, I think the least you can do is increase app usability. Trying to navigate with this app is a nightmare, very sub par. I can't even find the search engine when it should be one of quickest thing available for all the users. I've only subscribed for a month and already getting discouraged to extend my subscription. Your app is no way helping you with customer retention.

Ruth Aznar

Movies not available Teleserye are very accessible but not the movies , must watch on my desktop for movies

June Batulayan

Bakit walang choice na movie sa mobile app... please add. We love to watch movies too

Ryan de Guia

Live programs Good but hopefully live programs can be played thru this app. Currently no option for live programs.

Angelo Tamayo

It looks old to me. hey it's already 2016! Your videos are 480p and the UI looks not stunning and looks so old, like it was made last 6 years ago and never updated since. Can you fix the UI of this app and the player and more options while playing the video like oh I want to increase the quality of the video! Ughh looks like it was made by a low budget team HAHA! Abias CBN! UNINSTALLED! DON'T CARE ANYWAY. Fix it nalang para sa mga ibang gagamit.

Arlett John Leonor

This app is okay I guess. For a near $13 per month sub fee, you would think that they'll have an app that works as good for apps near that price. (Netflix for example). The UI needs work. If you're watching a show, it doesn't automatically plays the next episode, or at least have a button you can press to go to the next. You have to go back and find the date you were watching before, or think you were,(it doesn't tell you you've seen that episode already). And it's 2016 ffs, fix the app!


I will surely love this app but... why is it not free? why is it 7 days trial only? how are we going to watch filipino tv shows.. how come? Im only 13 years old, I dont know what im going to do when he trials ended.. I cannot find a website like this kind. ??

Ali Zandra Santos

I love this app! Hi ABS CBN, TFC! Just started my free trial :). I hope this app would be free for us. Just like the iwantv app. Please make this app free please? There are lots of teens like me from other countries who enjoys watching your shows. So I hope and I know lots of teens like me hopes too that this app is/ would be free! Make this app free please? ????

Arcylene David

This app sucks! This app sucks so bad! I mean I love tfc and all. But the app itself sucks. No next button so you have to remember where you left off, you have to keep scrolling the episodes everytime you finish one, it's slow, it freezes and it stops working and just showing a black screen. I think I'd rather just watch in the actual website. PLEASE FIX THIS. Thanks.

vanessa stanfield

App should be free for us filipinos abroad The app is slow, and its only free for 7 days. The app should be provided for us filipinos abroad. Maganda sana, kaya lang after the free trial you have to pay for it. App should be updated bc it lags and its slow. You cant watch movies also. Please fix it so the ratings for this app would be higher. Thank you.

Donald Heath

This app could have been great. Problems: (1) no love for Android TV??? (Nexus Player/ NVidia Shield TV/ Razer Forge/ Amazon Fire TV) (2) This should have merged with the IPTV service. Imagine SlingTV, but for TFC. (SlingTV has TV5) A viable alternative would be to get SlingTV to offer TFC on their app. I would pay for that service. Or this one, if number 1 is fixed.

Marvin D

No movies and poor quality Movies are not available in the app. Very poor quality on non-hd videos. For the price of the subscription, I'm not sure it's worth it.

Grace Kagami

This app needs fixing! hopefully the programmer of this app fix this. The app is always restarting and freezing. I paid for this stuff PLEASE give me a reason to extend my subscription here. Fix the problem!

Joan Toilolo

Cool app This app is so cool and really love the dramas. Just one problem, it was algood before but right now, if I play a video its so slow while playing . please fix this problem

Manny Gonzaga

Stop working on my Note4 Thanks for the update. And getting the app back and working. Making life easier for us in other countries..???


Old version is better What happen? Update should be better not worst!! Now full screen option is gone. I can see the taskbars when I play it on my tv. I should have not updated. Tsk tsk

Edna Lwandiko

Recognition I could love this app but why is it not free, and also they don't have varieties of drama/shows to choose. But i give props for finally recognized filipino drama with english sub and app of it. But still I would suggest it to improve it. Thanks

Daryl Angeles

Video playback is terribly slow and choppy even though my internet speed is fairly fast. They should at least give an option to adjust video quality so that the video can play smoothly

Julie Cabral


Imelda Giboney

It is frustrating, I download the app but when I open it it's the same show over and over again. I have to go back to the web site to find the show that I want. Why I can just go to the homepage when I open the app?
