Owned by Google, YouTube is one of the largest video streaming platforms available online. With millions of views racking up every day, YouTube's platform has a little bit of everything for all interests and genres. Ranging from short viral videos to clips of a series you've been struggling to find, YouTube has access to channels all over the world.
Anyone can create a video and upload it to YouTube today and could be seen by millions of viewers tomorrow. Subscribers can even buy or rent some of the newest movies and TV shows.
Users can watch literally millions of easy "how-to" videos, music videos, commercials, and so much more for educational or entertainment purposes.
Because YouTube is a website, it can be accessed on any device. YouTube's streaming services are compatible with all devices, whether you are on Android or Apple.
Due to movies having to be purchased or rented, users are able to watch rented or purchased movies and TV episodes on YouTube ad free.
YouTube offers rentals starting at $1.99 per TV episode, which is competitive for the streaming TV industry.
Overall, YouTube is extremely well known for their viral videos and commercials, but now YouTube provides even more value by allowing users to rent or purchase movies and TV shows. Users are able to watch rentals or purchased media on any device, as YouTube is accessible from all devices. In addition, users can watch for an affordable price per rental/purchase and watch ad free.
Users have 30 days to watch and 72 hours to finish watching rented movies once they have started. This may be a disadvantage to users who are trying to watch a movie that is quite long.
HD versions of movies and TV shows cannot be viewed within a web browser on YouTube. However, most streaming devices allow for HD viewing, such as Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, etc.
Currently, YouTube does not have parental controls for their movie streaming services. YouTube has many great features to their services, but it is good to note the few drawbacks we found. The main drawback to YouTube's streaming TV services is that HD isn't available through web browsers, only through streaming devices such as the Chromecast or Roku. Also, parents don't have filtering control if they are going to watch a movie with their children. This is an important family feature that is not available on YouTube. View Top Rated Companies
YouTube is amazing. I use it all the time for my emergency preparedness stuff. It is always fast acting and therefore never slow. The only thing I don't like is the amount of ads that flood the site.
I enjoy watching YouTube videos for my free time. It’s a great app! Love it tons!
Always nice being able to browse my favorite videos and search for different sports highlights.
I wish it wasn't so easy to surf YouTube aimlessly for hours. I love the service!
I enjoy using YouTube, it had an endless variety of options. You can be watching Boxing one second then cooking shows and vlogs the next. It’s very worth it.
Youtube has some unique and entertaining content. I watch it all the time, and I love it so much.
I have never had a login or membership, however I do use YouTube a lot for researching things to fix. It is great.
YouTube is so great for our family...we search and watch things all the time. As a mom, I always want videos to be family friendly and some things obviously aren't, but I appreciate the effort that goes in to keeping things clean.
I love YouTube. It is where I go to watch all of my fun videos. I like how I can subscribe to channels and get notifications when they have new content. I like to watch music, exercise and short cartoons. You tube is the best free product out there.
I personally use their services daily to access both educational and entertainment content.
I find youtube to be very informational and always entertaining. There is always stuff to either be learning about or to entertain you, just wherever you look for it.
I use YouTube often to learn how to fix things life a flat tire and a clogged sink. Music videos are pretty useful as well.
Great for DIY people I love watching info on You Tub! The best way to learn and find must
I would have given 5 stars because it is an outstanding free service but very recently they have started running back to back double ads instead of the normal just one and its kind of scummy
Totally worth it kids seem to have shows that help them research new topics and watch them. They even have fun stuff that they laugh there head off about.
I love YouTube! There are ads, but usually you can skip them fairly quickly. You can find songs and fun videos that can make you happy.
i love the idea of being able to use the internet to help me in a very seeable way. but youtube has an annoying tendency to allow the worst videos on their site. i mean this isn’t pornhub :/
Youtube has both pros and cons, but from a parent's perspective, mostly cons. I don't feel comfortable letting my 9 year old loose to simply watch a craft video, because next thing I know she could be watching anything! It has no form of censoring, and she could easily end up watching something highly inappropriate without even trying.
We watch videos all the time on YouTube.. my problem is the content that comes up below. We have enjoyed the access but let us choose what we want to watch.
YouTube it’s awesome! It’s a little annoying with all the commercials but they need to make money some how! It’s a great tool to DIY!
I had a great experience with YouTube TV. It covered pretty much every game and show that I wanted and the price was good for all that it offered me.
Great way to learn about thing, learn skills and have a good laugh. I am so happy it is free so I am a big fan
Got rid of cable and finally made the switch to Youtube tv. I have loved it so far. I don't love the recording function because it automatically records every single episode of the show you want to record. Doesn't take up storage, per se. But I do wish it would just record new episodes. Gets to be cluttered. Otherwise, love it!
I love using YouTube mostly for posting videos. We do a lot of trips with my company and it is a great place to distribute them for others to see. It has been a real value to my business.
I don't have a ton of experience with streaming shows specifically. But they always seem to have random videos that I am looking for. And it's very easy to find.
I looooove YouTube. I love the variety and the chance that we have to connect with others.
It is amazing to me that YouTube has so many easily accessible videos and the streaming quality is so good. I love YouTube, even if my son is addicted to it!
The only thing I don't like about YouTube is the people who use it - leaving horrible comments on videos. Other than that, it's great! We use it to watch shows, listen to music, learn how to fix things, etc. I'm sure we save tons of money using Youtube.
I really like You Tube. So many entertaining things to look up. Also like catching up on some of the programs I like watching when I have missed them. Very entertaining! I watch on my iPad and if I can get on the internet while I wait for Dr. Office appointments it helps pass the time.
I love YouTube! You can find anything and everything you want. From how to fix something to full programs. I want to learn how to play a song on the bass guitar - any song - and its there.
I don't use it very often because it doesn't have live TV and not as much original programming
It has been helpful when I have needed tutorials on how to do things but I do not like how easy it is for kids to access any content. i wish they had more parental controls.
I use Youtube all the time. I stream crochet videos and my husband uses it for all sorts of tutorials.
I've been using YouTube since inception. It's one of the best things every created!!! The ability to post videos new and old....listen to music of all kinds. I simply love it!!!
Love the access to music, video and entertainment using my mobile device. The YouTube app is awesome.
YouTube is a great way to easily find videos! I use it to pull up my favorite songs, find educational tutorials, watch funny dog videos, and so much more! YouTube is a great because anyone is able to submit videos, so you get a whole variety of talents and experience from people all around the world.
I use YouTube daily. I usually listen to music on it, and I love how easy it is to find what you want! I will admit the ads drive me crazy sometimes, especially since they bumped it up to two ads instead of just one, and sometimes you can't skip the ads. All-in-all I love the variety of content on YouTube! If the ads could be cut down, my review would definitely be 5 stars!
YouTube is my go-to service for fun videos, sports recaps, movie reviews, and music. I haven't paid for their service, but even free the ads are bearable. Absolutely no complaints with YouTube, highly recommendable.
I have loved all of the videos that I have been able to use when teaching my nursing residents!
This is a perfect way to spend time learning new things. I have been learning a lot about cosmetology lately, I love that I can learn so much on a free platform :)
I like how it recommends things that are similar to what I usually watch. I like how it's easy to find the things I search for. Most of the videos are high quality, but sometimes they take a really long time to load.
Recent updates are harder to manage. Adding two adds in front of videos has been disappointing and the quality has declined. Of course, having access to so much information and entertainment is the best! Just dropping my review to 4 stars because of the updates. Keep working on making the platform more manageable.
YouTube has become my bible to all things creative. When I can't get my own brain working YouTube comes in. I do wish the parental locks were more detailed and restrictive as too much content is allowed through. I also wish there were time limits.
I appreciate YouTube streaming service. It has worked really well for me and my friends. It has been an affordable option for everyone in my family.
I use YouTube a lot for work not to mention I get caught watching video after video when I stumble onto an interesting subject and all related vids keep popping up. I like how there is a video for anything I want to know how to do or that I am interested in.
I love that you can search anything you want to watch and YouTube will make it come up with no hassle! Customer service is great too.
I love the easy access to YouTube to find your best videos and recordings. You can pull up anything on YouTube that you are looking for.
I wouldn't recommend using youtube, there is so much crap and inappropriate videos that I don't use it anymore. I've had many experiences where I've seen lots of things that I did not want to see.
I love YouTube!!! The options are great where I can learn about subjects as well as watch funny videos. I like that at the end of one video they give me options to watch similar style shows.
I love watching shows on YouTube. It provides great entertainment that I can watch with my teenage daughter.
