Let me just start off by saying one thing that really bugs me about this app is that it is not consistent with there episodes they upload. For example, if a show aires on cable Thursday, they don’t upload that episode until the following week when a NEW episode aires. Considering I do not have cable, this is highly annoying. More inconveniently, the app NEVER leaves off where I was at in an episode. Not only do I have to remember the EXACT time I left off, but it also doesn’t show the scene when I’m trying to find where I left off. Therefore, I have to literally find where ever I left off. Lastly and more importantly, it is WAY to sensitive to my chrome cast, meaning it disconnects without actually disconnecting to the point I can’t pause the show without completely exiting out of the app, finding the episode I want, and reconnecting to my chrome cast. And it doesn’t even leave off where I was watching after I do this. This happens roughly 3-4 times while watching an episode that I can’t pause it. By the look of the other reviews, this has been an issue for a long time and makes me question how much you people care about what the people who are actually using the app have to say about it. As I’m writing this, I had to pause the episode I’m watching and after only 2 MINUTES of it being paused, I hit play and it started the whole episode ever. Great work mtv.
Too many ads!!
I know, I get it! This is how they make money is by the ads, however, there is WAY TOO MANY!! I’ll only watch like 5 mins of an episode and there’s already an ad on! Like are you kidding me?! And the ads each are like 3 mins long. Makes it to where I don’t want to watch the show anymore because of how many ads. It’s ridiculous. Even on tv they don’t show a commercial every 5 mins! Unlike this app watching shows seem almost impossible. A couple times I’d be watching a show on my phone and all of a sudden it will skip WAY ahead even when I’m watching it and I NEVER clicked anything, and then another ad plays and I can’t get out of it. Finally once the ad is over, I go back to where I originally was before it skipped lots of parts, and without a surprise, BOOM, another AD! So annoying. I feel like I can’t enjoy the show without an ad coming in a million times an episode and destroying the purpose of it. And not to mention they’re the SAME ADS EVERYTIME. It gets annoying after awhile. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if they were different ads. I wish they’d get new ones here and there, but not the same ones each time. Please if there’s anyway you can fix this issue, please do. 😤
I LOVE The Challenge shows and have been watching since Season1... this app lists the episodes from Finale to Premiere! This ruins the anticipation of who will get sent home because you can see it when having to scroll through them all to get to episode 1. I have a big family and rarely get to watch my shows when they happen so this really ruins a lot of what makes this show so great!! I don’t want to know who made it to the Final before I even know who is on this Season!! And the ‘play next’ takes you to the episode before the one you just watch, so then you have to back out and start at the Finale episode and then scroll through them all to get to the episode you need! So every time you want to watch a new episode you have to scroll through the entire season which shows you pictures of people on every episode! So by the time you watch a couple episodes you can tell by the pictures what going to ultimately happen!! And now every episode of every show is locked even with my Dish subscription, and the few that aren’t won’t do anything when clicked on!! I have AppleTV and MTV is the worst app by far out of everything I watch!! And I love so much of MTV’s programs!! It’s so FRUSTRATING!!
So inconsistent, inefficient, waste of time
This app is awful. I am logged in on the same user on my Apple TV for one room and cast to Chromecast in another room from my iPhone. The "Continue Watching" feature is never correct where I left off - not even the right episode. So I have to not only remember where I left off, but to troubleshoot and fast forward I have to sit through ads I might have JUST watched 20 minutes before (cueing up an episode I stopped and want to restart). The Apple TV app is a bit more efficient during active watching but the iPhone app is awful. If I'm casting to my TV and do anything else on my phone, when I go back to the app to pause or do anything, the app is back to he home screen with no option to see "What's Playing" even AS it is playing on my tv. So I have to experiment with closing the app, connecting to my cast device, disconnect from cast device, and start ALL over again (find my episode, find my spot, watch ads I've just seen). Ridiculous. And no, I do not need nor do I have the time to "troubleshoot" by emailing back and forth with tech support. By the tons of other reviews saying the same thing, it just needs to be fixed.
This is quite possibly the worst app ever. I have had it on a Pixel, Kindle, iPhone, and Apple TV. It is very buggy and glitchy. It appears the servers are not strong enough to handle the workload. Constant error messages, constant loading/playing issues - the shows stop every two or three minutes for anywhere from 15 seconds to three minutes. If you pause and try to slow it to buffer, it makes no difference. The organisation is awful. Episodes are not in order and auto play goes to whatever is listed next. So you may jump from episode 10 to episode 37 and have no idea until you’re so confused you realise you must have missed something. Then to try to look and it takes ten minutes to pause, go back, find the episode you were on, scroll through and find the next episode, press play, wait for it to load if it ever does since have the time it give you an error message that it is having trouble...just a really crappy app all around. I cannot believe it has as many good reviews as it does - those people must be getting paid for good reviews.
Not working properly
This app usually works perfectly but recently it is in need of bug fixes. When I go to live tv i’m not even able to watch what is on because it just shows a repeated series of commercials that never end. Another thing that I don’t like is that it doesn’t show the correct name/title for what is being shown on the channel. For an example, on the mtv channel it will just have the same list for what’s being shown through out the day from the mtv2 channel and not the mtv channel.
There is a glitch
It’s not even letting me submit my app support stuff. I am trying to watch on my Apple TV, it only lets me watch a few episodes and then the others are locked. It won’t let me sign in to a tv provider at all. When i click it says they are trying to get all tv providers to participate. Like doesn’t even let me select my provider or enter my info. I get the app to work on my phone, and I’m able to watch all the episodes, but the screen it soo small, and it doesn’t give me the option to stream it to my Apple TV, nor make it full screen on my actual phone, so it’s annoying to watch it on like a 3rd of my screen. I tried moving my phone to horizontal and still nothing. Anytime i tried to click on the screen to see if there were hidden buttons, it just paused. Go to the app support and type all this up and the send button won’t work. Thought maybe i typed too much, so i erased a bunch and still didn’t work. Refresh and tried again and still nothing. Soo now it can be part of my review. Fix the app please
Terrible & horrible app
They play 2 seconds of footage then 500 hours of ads! There should at least be a feature where you pay monthly for no ads because that makes me never want to be on this app. I currently have no cable because I can’t afford it and this is my only way to watch shows. If y’all are that desperate for money (from ads) do you know how many people would pay for no ads ? Seriously, like do you know how many people would pay for no ads ? A LOT. You want the app to stop having such a HORRIBLE rating ? STOP SO MUCH ADS AND MAKE THERE BE A NO ADS FEATURE FOR $4.99 A MONTH. I would definitely change this rating to a 5 star if there was less ads for those who don’t buy the no ads feature & if there was a no ads feature. And if I pause to go do something else I expect it to play where I left off but it doesn’t, please fix that too. Until this happens, deleting app & leaving my rating at 1 star. Would give 0 stars if possible.
I usually don’t review apps but this is so bad I had to leave a review. The app on the Apple TV never remembers cable provider information. So after re entering the cable provider details the app will occasionally actually open and let me browse for shows. Then if I do find a show to watch I click click play and almost every time it will not load and just have the spinning wheel. Have to come all the way out of the app re enter cable info and then try the same process again. Usually I give up after the second attempt and it is so annoying to use. I have a lot of streaming apps and this is by far the worst of all and there is honestly no comparison this app is terrible. I don’t even know if it can be fixed it may just need a total re write. I also have the issues others have where after a commercial it will start playing a section from another episode. Absolute junk Wish I could give negative stars.
Still needs work
So since the latest update, it does seem to be streaming better...when it’s streaming...until you have to put it down for a minute & the phone goes dark. When you try to go back in to the show you’re watching, it says “no internet connection” which in fact is not true, esp when you’re connected to a strong wi-fi signal, has been connected all along. Every time this happens, you have to close out the app...go back in and then watch a couple more commercials before the show resumes. Very frustrating! Come on developers, you can do it! You can make this app just like every other channel I stream & have zero issues with, which is almost every other major network. It’s better, but not quite right yet.
A Mess of an app
Don’t even know where to start, first of all this app is usually pretty good. But when this app decides to not let you log to your tv provider. Granted you want to watch multiple episodes this is when the app starts to go downhill. I specifically have this problem with U-verse not being able to log because of a subscription error even though U-verse provides it. I also have an issue with amount of ads being played in a video it seems like overkill with how many videos are plastered through an episode, And If you leave an episode or click away in any form. MTV makes you restart the video or makes you rewatch the same ad you already saw. This apps needs some interface tweaking so the app is less glitchy going forward
App Needs MAJOR Fixing
I’m so beyond frustrated with this app! Every show I watch the app literally shuts down in the last 2 minutes!!! It’s bad e light that we have to sit through all the commercials even though we are already paying for the services through our provider but every time the app shuts down I have to sit through the commercials all over again! Sometimes back to back because it plays commercials before the show and then again when I try to find the place where the app shut down! So we have an app that stops playing the show and the forces us to sit through 1-3 more additional rounds of commercials when trying to reboot where the app shut down. Extremely frustrating especially when again we are already paying for this service with our provider!
This app is inefficient and frustrating
I would like to provide some insight into how this app is severely lacking in comparison to other apps. I stream my tv through google chromecast. First off I could never get this app to work with my Comcast Xfinity log in — it makes no sense and there are countless inquiries online. How is that possible? Now I have a Spectrum log in and now out of the blue it says MTV is no longer part of the subscription package which is wrong. In addition, the new episodes can take up to a week to be added to the app. We have entered a time where a ton of people are streaming and it’s frustrating that this app is extremely inefficient and I feel like you are losing a lot of streamers. Streaming is our reality and I have zero issues with the Bravo, NBC, ABC, HBO apps etc. I think this app needs to be better, its 2018.
What an awful streaming platform.
2 annoying issues I have found in a very short period of using this app. So first, the “play next feature” if you want to leave it to play the next episode actually plays the previous episode which is super annoying. Second I have been watching Laguna Beach and The Hills and there are full episodes that are duplicates even tho they are named differently with different descriptions. And even weirder, the last episode I watched the first half was the right episode and after the commercial break it was the second half of an episode from 3 episodes prior. So they are whole plot lines that I missed that I get a briefing of in the “previously” section of the episodes. Soooo annoying. Get a better media manager and a better app developer. I’m sure there a million out there now.
Xfinity and the dreadful ads..
The only reason why I’m subtracted the two stars is because of ads and tv providers—-is it a possibility you can get two options: to either watch all of your commercials at once in the beginning of the episode or throughout the episode. Because it really pains me to sit through a 3-minute commercial every 5-6 minutes. And the tv providers—I’m an Xfinity customer and I was curious for why Xfinity is no longer listed as a tv provider? This change happened around December/ January. I used to use this app all the time, but now the only chance I get to is if a use the free hour pass. Other than that, I see no other flaw in this application. Thank you!

A terrible amount of commercials. Makes the show almost unwatchable, not to mention the glitches making the commercials start all over again.

These commercials are rediculous. Also my app pauses when the commercial ends. No need to comment back. Just wish y’all had a way to sub with less commercials
