Great! (Plz read tho!)
I got this to watch Ghost Adventures! (And only Ghost Adventures! 😜) I like that show, and the amount of ads is... decent. I usually get like 2 ads, and every once in a while I get like 3 or more. The only unfortune that I am personally unhappy about is... well, you have to use a TV provider sign in thingie. And I don’t know if everybody really wants to let an app that maybe they JUST got and don’t really trust it yet have their information about their TVs, right? I mean, it would be better to not have any locked episodes because it just doesn’t make sense! It’s like, some people might think that you are trying to steal you’re information. Not that I do, really, but I just want to watch all of my very much liked Ghost Adventures in peace. Update: Thank you so much for the recent response! It helps to know the developers are trying their best to satisfy their customers. I like this app so much! Thank you. I would like it if you made some apps in the future maybe about themes of television shows you have on you’re wonderful app! Thank you for taking you’re time to read this (long) review!
Locked out of shows even though I have a tv provider.
I have used this app for about 2 years now. At first every time I tried to use it I had to uninstall and reinstall it to get it unlock all the shows I love to watch on travel channel. It would lock me out of my shows and the live tv portion saying my provider plan didn’t have travel channel, even though my plan includes the channel. I almost just deleted it forever but for some reason it started working properly. Well my frustration has once again returned. I have been locked out of content and live tv once again. The app won’t let me sign out so I can sign back in. Once again I find myself uninstalling this app so I reinstall and start all over again. Each time it deletes all my history and favorites. I love the travel channel but the frustration of the process I have to go thru makes me wonder if it’s worth the migraine it triggers.
Used to work, but now it won’t activate
Used to work fine then just locked me out. I tried to reactivate across several different browsers and devices. When I enter my Dish Network log in information it gives me an error message that says my online ID/password combination has expired, then directs me to the Dish site where it works just fine. I don’t want to change my password because that may not fix the issue and then I will have to update all my other app log in info. Sent an email to the app contact info and got an email saying they would get back to me in 3 days. My guess is I will never hear from them. Update: I did hear from them, but after the same issue happened with the TLC app and I was forced to change my Dish password. It resolved the issue with both, but why would my password expire for the apps and not Dish? They didn’t have an answer of course.
Programs go missing?
So, I love the travel channel line up. But this app makes it hard for me to watch a program and go back to it later. For a few months it would not let me watch half the shows saying I did not have viewing rights/access, and that would flicker on and off. Sometimes it would say that and other times it disappeared and I was free to watch. It looks as though that was fixed, but now when I log in the programming consistently changes. For instance this morning I had complete access to season 6 of Expedition Unknown but when I went back to watch Episode 3 today Mysteries of Jesus, that episode along with a ton of episodes just do not show? Instead it says season 6 episode 3 is Amazing Adventures?? So I am super confused and just slightly irritated. If for some reason my cable subscription doesn’t allow this content well cool, just show that I can’t watch it, don’t make it disappear.
Worst TV Channel App I Have Tried
By FAR the worst dedicated tv channel app I have ever used. Get ready for 6 commercials every 5 minutes. Worst part is it often freezes with 5 seconds or less on commercial 6 of 6, so you have to watch all 6 AGAIN when you reload! THEN when you scrub the video back to where you were (it never saves position) you get ANOTHER 6 commercials. It constantly jumps into the blurriest video I have ever seen (no exaggeration), to the point where words look like fluffy clouds, why does this mode even exist? Even if you pause for an hour it only buffers about 2 seconds of good video ahead before switching back to 060p resolution. Don't bother adding favorites, they don't save on app reload. Also it never remembers your TV subscription so you must login to your television provider every single time. This app literally forced me back into piracy.
I enjoy watching A haunting. You could say I watch it all the time. I can just about quote season one, two, and three. I enjoy watching new episodes. Season 10 is great! A bit confused because on idgo they already have season 4-10 they cut off 1-3. I think there no longer going to show A haunting. Keep up the good work - on keeping the old episodes, so we can watch them as many times as we can. Thank you for creating new episodes. Can’t wait to watch more A haunting on Travel Channel.
I like it, but don’t at the same time
I personally really like Travel Channel, and having it on my phone is great. But, there are something I want changed. First of all, captions. You don’t get a choice for captions. I have gone to the captions button, turned them off, but they still stay there. And they aren’t on time! They are always a sentence ahead of what is being said in the show. Also, ads. Not the ads being there, but “Ad 1 of 6” for example. Some it will say “Ad 6 of 6” on the third ad. Also, they are always showing ads for the HGTV app, Food Network app, DIY app, and even the Travel Channel app. What do you think we’re watching the ads on, buddy?
It’s okay, but I have an idea.
This app is okay. It has way too many commercial breaks. More than what you would get watching it live on cable. And it doesn’t have complete seasons of the Dead Files. I got the app to watch the Dead Files. So it’s disappointing to see that not every episode is available. Also I don’t like that you have to log in with your cable provider. I would love it if I could sign in with my email and pay like $3.99 a month to watch every single episode and watch commercial free. So to the developers!!! Like Netflix but on a smaller scale. I don’t think I’d pay more than $5 for one channel. But I know a lot of people would be interested in that. MORE EPISODES!! & MONTHY SUBSCRIPTIONS (no commercials or less)
Mostly Commercials — The Same Ones OVER AND OVER
I have several TV Channels apps that I love. Yes, they have commercials and yes, they are repetitive, BUT, none of them compare to the 6 or 7 commercial runs every few minutes with Travel Channel. They run over and over and over again. I have gotten so disgusted with it, I put an envelope over the screen, turn down the volume and wait for them to end. If you aren’t crazy about some of their shows, watch them on TV. They have fewer commercials and variety to some extent. I would never try any of the items advertised on the app as Travel Channel has run them so many times it is disgusting. I pay for my satellite, pay for my internet connection and still, I have to watch hours and hours of stupid commercials. No marathon watching with this app.
Needs Bug Fix!!
I LOVE this app, don’t get me wrong, HOWEVER, at some point recently, there must have been an update and boy is it buggy! I have the travel channel (and other channels in this channel’s package - HGTV, Food network, etc) from my cable provider and the app for each all have the same problem - I’m logged in, I can watch live tv for a couple days then it says I need to pay with my provider WHILE IM STILL LOGGED IN! So I have to log out, log back in and then use. It’s a royal pain, I’m almost at the point of not using anymore and deleting the apps. Please help! Also, If the developers could add the current show that’s playing when you his “live tv” instead of just seeing the channel (we selected the app, we know what channel were in), that’d be great. Right now, it’s a TOTAL shot in the dark!
Love the travel channel but dislike this app
This app seems to have a problem all the time. As soon as one thing is fixed something else comes up. I would have to log into my account every time I opened the app. Then it was loading issues. NOW, I’ll watch one episode on the app and then when the next episode is loading an error pops up saying that I need to add the Travel Channel to my cable package!!!!! So frustrating because sometimes the app lets me watch my shows and sometime is doesn’t. Once the error message comes up the app no longer works. I have to delete the app completely and then re-download it. I’ve never had this much problems.
Overall the iOS and tvOS apps are descent. My one complaint would be the number of commercials and repeat commercials. Sometimes while streaming there is an inordinate amount of commercials during the show. There are now six (6) commercials every break and sometimes four (4) of those commercials will be the same commercial repeated in a loop. I understand you make your money with advertisements, even though I pay for the channel since this is a cable channel... but I can only watch the same Dell or w/e commercial so many times in a row.
Awesome Customer Support
Not only do I love this app because I can watch my favorite shows through it, but they also have outstanding customer service. When this last iPhone update caused some playback bugs in the app and I emailed customer service, they not only responded to let me know they were fixing the problem, they later emailed to let me know it had been completely fixed. They were prompt, courteous and efficient!
New review .. better so far
The only way to get this and discovery app to work is delete download again and have to put all cable info again if you don’t use app for couple hours it won’t even open just shows a spinning loading screen apparently been like this a year from the reviews and the developer just doesn’t care....... Just redownloaded app and its working so far cross my fingers it stays .. would love a picture in picture feature to an update so you can watch and do other things on iPad
I’ve been able to watch live tv and full episodes for months with my suddenlink subscription and now out of no where you are no longer allowing me to watch episodes off my app because suddenlink isn’t a listed provider?! 😡 Update 8/8/19: Thank you developers for responding. 👏🏻 we’ve been able to enjoy watching travel channel with no issues for a while now! Granted my review was back in November I appreciate the response. 😁

I have not checked all the shows on Discovery+, but most shows moved from Travel Channel, along with their new app, SUCK!
The shows freeze, and trying to get back to the freeze point sometimes takes so long (especially having to try more than once to get back to the place the show stopped), it makes me not want to watch my favorite shows. All this, and not to mention, I have to pay extra for poorer service. AND, with my DVR, I had a setup where new shows were recorded automatically, and showed on a "recorded" list. Now, I have to keep a log of what was the last show I watched, or I have to go thru their list of episodes to find the shows I haven't watched.

I call bs on moving all of my favorite ghost shows to Discovery +. I am retired and on SS and can barely afford satellite tv. Live in the country and wi-fi is spotty and slow. Really disappointed.
