Hate the adds. Episodes don't seem to be in order (from bottom up on flip or flop they go from having a baby to being pregnant). It was so much better on Netflix, no adds, no subscription to a cable company needed, episodes/seasons were in order and easy to understand. Please please PLEASE go back to Netflix.
Watch one episode then app refuses to work. Wouldn't play anything else. Just lets you scroll around but nothing else.
The app streams well and you can even watch live tv if you have a subscription. It does however, shut down periodically and you can't watch older shows.
Easily one of the poorest user experiences of any app I own. And it's painfully obvious HGTV is spamming the Play Store with fake 5 star reviews (seriously y'all aren't even trying to hide it). I have no problem with ads, I have a problem with numerous ads, and the same ads. If you have to fill your 90 second bloc with an ad repeated 4 or 5 times, you're not reinforcing brand messaging, you're turning off the consumer. What's worse, the ad delivery is terribly broken - so broken that it often gets "stuck" in ads and just plays in a loop and never goes back into the show. This happens more than it doesn't happen. It's clear that the folks at HGTV let the money people drive digital product. And instead of crafting a well conceived content experience, they've prioritized monetization without asking whether what they've provided is worth monetizing. They'd do well to let people who care about UX and are well versed in content delivery drive product decisions - instead providing an app experience that's about as subtle with advertising as an oversized sledgehammer.
I like that I can watch both live TV and catch up on episodes of my favorite shows that I missed. Great while killing time at the airport
Horrible (hate it) used to work great on my tablets, NOW WON'T MOVE PAST FIRST AD
