Comments and Reviews from users:

Jack Tyler Deal: “This has been solid for a long time. Recently, however, there seem to be issues with loading information including things I own in my library. For example, a show I have owned for 6 years is now appearing with randomly locked and non-viewable episodes randomly throughout and prompting me to purchase them again (already owned, downloaded, even though I am signed in to the only account I've ever used). Frustrating.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Cara Miller: “Here's the deal. I adapt to Google products to make things easier, and as they change, it makes it so much harder (for no reason). I cannot tell which episodes of a show I have downloaded. It automatically trys to make me stream episodes instead. It's not convenient, and not the reason I chose to go with Google products. But it dang well might be the reason I QUIT using Google products.” – 2/5 in Play Store

J. K.: “I have had a Netflix disc subscription for quite a few years. It worked well. I have now changed over to the streaming service. What a piece of junk! Programs frequently freeze. Sometimes just a 15 second pause, other times a full freeze. Many, many series and movies are unavailable. Very limited available programing. Most of the series that I had started watching on disc are not available to stream. My movies in my disc cue are almost completely unavailable streaming. A complete disaster.” – 2/5 in Play Store

jessica pate: “for last year have had problems. Netflix telling me bad internet connection. Netflix is the only streaming I have problems with. my family pays 100% of the Netflix bill. I expect 100% service 100% of the time. not only 100% on non peak hours and maybe 45% on peak hours. should be a law past if you can't give 100% of what customers pay for you shouldn't be able to add anymore customers.” – 3/5 in Play Store

jgregory820: “This may not be the correct place for this but I'm gonna say it anyway. The app runs great. The fact that I now have to watch ads when I didn't used to or pay more money is ridiculous. Technologically speaking, the app is good. Service just isn't worth the money unless you do all of your shopping on Amazon. So at this point I pay to watch ads and my girlfriend gets free shipping. But again, app runs fine, so it gets 3 stars for that. Minus 2 for the ad watching on a paid service.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Pamala Pudentai: “I've had this since my Amazon Prime subscription. The upside is that they really good movies (far better than Netflix!) that are Free, others you must purchase to view. The only negative aspect is not get too comfortable with it, as many movies can't or won't playback normally, like the Movie "Dangerous" I've been trying to view. Uncertain if it's not compatible with my high speed 5G WiFi, or what? I'm going to return to YouTube TV account to learn if I can buy the Movie "Dangerous", I believe” – 2/5 in Play Store

T: “Very bad download playback (if you can even get it to play them, which is remarkable how they pull that off). Video freezes with sound still playing, and why would a download buffer, honestly. Also, the inability to simply clear your watch list is annoying and just lazy that they refuse to fix it. App specific review of course, content offered is great.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Noelle Geldon: “So there is one thing that really damaged my experience I still love the content, but the playback feature sucks it plays maybe for a matter of minutes and then the screen goes black, and the crazy thing is the sound is still working. I'm really disappointed it didn't used to do this. I have tried uninstalling an reinstalling, and it still does the same thing. :(” – 3/5 in Play Store

Hemant Kumar: “Just like all Zee TV channels this too is overloaded with too many advertisements. Sorry I subscribed for a full year. Paid App overloaded with ads is not cool, it's silly and terrible waste of time of a paying customer. And to top it all, the "Skip Ad" button is there but it's disabled. So all the ads are shoved down your throat. Just like most PR staff of companies you do not read the review properly and post standard formatted replies. I have written that I have a full year subscription....” – 2/5 in Play Store

Sahanaa: “First the app worked in a good way... But after some days only ads are playing but not the episodes... I have tried so many times but it is not working. Then I updated the app but it is not working again. Please fix this ASAP. Other than the app is ok.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Once the sound catches up to the frozen part of the pic, it resumes as normal. I have this app installed on 4 devices. Two are on 2 separate Smartphones, 1 on a smart TV and the other on a Smart Device connected to a regular Tv. All glitch. However, Pluto TV does not play on my smart TV, despite doing an up update. Overall, not a reliable app but, it is free to watch.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A F: “I'm not sure if the new app update resulted in a problem, but ever since the update, the shows don't stream to my TV smoothly. There is stalling and gaps in timing. I have reset amd update all my internet servers, and even so much as reinstalled the app but it continues to be an issue. If there is a fix please let me know.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Andrew J: “I like the app, but it doesn't work well on slow networks. It would be nice if it cached ahead even on pause. Also, if you back up, say, a minute, the minute you've already seen is lost and must be downloaded again. So the app is very slim in regards to its memory footprint, but at the expense of not handling allow networks well. Feature wise, it's great.” – 4/5 in Play Store

DanielHenry5000: “Tubi is really a good app, it is completely free, has few ads, and the ads are not very long. The on demand shows are all passable (all that I have watched, at least). Tubi also allows you to have access to a ton of shows! Here are my favorite things about Tubi: first, it is available on both tv and on phones, it is completely free, and for on demand shows Tubi resumes where you left off (mostly).” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Itsjustkevin: “The library has options for any and everything you could want to watch. I do realize there's an ad free version but the ad supported option has way too many ads. you're getting greedy Hulu. an ad or 3 before the show, many more during the show, and another 2 or 3 before the credits run. A bit excessive in my opinion. Some of the free streaming services don't have that many ads.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Aaron Pritchett: “App can't keep track of where you left off in series's. Tracks you back to the first episode. Not always, but most of the time. Also, why are black borders being added to the top and bottom of some movies that can't be zoomed out? Making movies extra small. Not on all movies, but a lot of them. I know you are trying to force aspect ratios, but it just ends up forcing smaller videos.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Travis Markel: “The ads make the app stop on the fire sticks. Then when I go back into the show, I have to restart the episode or movie. On my tablet the ads freeze up a lot. For a 60 second add it takes 2 or more minutes to get through, do to the freezing up. Other than than the ad issue the app works great. I have done all the updates for all of the devices.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Rob Harris: “The app is ok, freezes up on occasion when trying to go to commercials but decent aside from that. But to the commercials...way too many for way too long. I know this is a free app and I'm fine with the normal amount of TV commercials but seriously, a ~45-minute TV show takes about about 70 minutes with the frequent, lengthy commercials. That's a bit absurd. Not to mention I can't even get closed caption on the show I'm currently watching even though the show had captions on another platform.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Next thing I know there's an update that says it had improvements and bug fixes so I expected that I'll now be able to connect my Netflix account... nope. It doesn't even show up as an option now. That was the only reason I wanted this app. Edit 5/28/19- I just redownloaded the app. It's now working. Thank you for fixing it. I definitely plan to share it with my friends.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Decent when it works but mostly either you or someone else will not have audio and or video constantly having to close and reopen and reenter a room to try to fix bugs or disconnect headphones or hang up the phone etc basically it only works if you are just using this app and nothing else and works best if you don't invite anyone else which defeats the point entirely but when it does work...

Bryant Siriphone: “Not to sound a certain way but I'm a bit lazy when checking for movie deals. So when something is on sale why does it not give the price anymore. It just says it's on sale, and if you want to know the actual price you have to click or touch the movie. I'm actually more inclined to buy the movie if I browse through and see the price without having to tap or click on the movie. Because of this, I actually find myself browsing for movies more on "Movies Anywhere" instead of Fandango at home.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Nicholas Winchell: “App is great for movies and TV but have been having a problem on Google TV. When using the Google TV version of the app, launching causes Google TV to freeze completely.

It eventually goes back to the main menu and you have to go back to where you left off. 0r you can just try to exit right away and then restart it. It’s VERY annoying. None of my other streaming apps do this. You need to do a better job Peacock or charge less for your sub-par app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Amanda Anne Kenyon: “Worst streaming app ever!!!!! There is a good amount of movies and shows, and a decent amount of variety. However, it is not a smooth experience. It takes forever to load and constantly has to buffer when you are trying to watch whatever it is that you are watching. I deleted it from my devices and canceled the subscription because it wasn't worth it!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Adam Drexler: “This app has the most glitches than any other on all devices. Which is a shame because it has great shows. It is very hard to work with and is very slow. Buffering in the middle of an episode when internet speeds are insane. Click a button on a tv app and wait 3 to 5 seconds for a response. I have it on multiple tv brands and it's all the same. No other(and I mean NO OTHER) app has this problem with anything I use. The only reason for 2 stars is because of show selection is good.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Jim Eastman: “Awesome selection of programming. However the app keeps on messing up on both our television, and my phone. I have to keep uninstallng the app. Right now it won't work on my phone even after reinstalling. It just keeps buffering. Sometimes it doesn't even get that far.

A Google user: “It's a decent app, good picture quality, convenient access, and an invaluable service having all your purchases in one place. However, I have a real issue with the design on the Android TV version of the app. Why does this app default to stereo sound on Android TV? No other movie streaming service does this. For EVERY film I watch, I have to go into the setting after starting the film and manually change the audio to "English 5.1" EVERY SINGLE TIME. EDIT: Latest update has resolved this issue!” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I drive for a living so mostly use this app for watching movies from my Xbox account when I can't find wifi. Works great most of the time, but there seems to be some issue every now and then where some movies won't play. They'll load for 2 seconds and go back to the last screen. It used to resume near the end of the credits and give me a fraction of a second to hit the start over button. Now it just doesn't play. And if you accidentally start the bonus content you must skip through all of them.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Latest version force closes, with "Unknown exception has occurred" message, across several devices. Multiple uninstalls and reinstalls do nothing. Weak. UPDATE: 6/1/19. Signed up for a 6mo trial. Phone app seems to be fine now. Adding titles to my list populates list on my TV app, finally. Also, I can actually get to My List on my TV now. Only issue I've noticed is intermittent buffering on the TV app. All other streaming apps, plus Fire Stick 4K working fine. I can deal with that for now.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Vin Murphy: “Content is top notch! However I have these issues with the app. 1 - Can't find a way to turn on closed captions. After researching this, supposedly only some movies on the app have it, but I've yet to come across any that actually do. 2 - There is no cast button within the video. You must cast before you start watching. Frustrating if you want to start on mobile and then start streaming later. 3 - No ability to create more than one user profile per account. Hoping these features are added!” – 4/5 in Play Store
