App with a lot of bugs 3/5
This app has gotten better in the new version. It doesn't seem to have as many bugs as previous versions. It does have REALLY annoying music in the live mode when there is not a commercial. Please fix this and I'll rate the app higher.
You killed it 1/5
MSNBC Live. No more. A big loss. Fire the genius that tried to reinvent the wheel. The former easy tap in to LIVE was great. Bring it back
Fix it 1/5
By Bye bye MSNBC
The old version worked much better. No live shows. Bye bye!
Yes, there is still Live TV 4/5
A lot of folks are saying the Live feature is gone, but it isn't. Is down on the bottom with the TV icon. New UI looks sleek and better to navigate. Just wish there was an Apple TV app...
Live Stream 5/5
By Wannabee SuperLooper
Maybe for the initial release it wasn't there today, but I'm live streaming the news channel on my phone as I type this.
Revised app doesn't allow Live viewing:( 1/5
With new update - can't view Live even when signed in & verified by my cable provider. Very, very disappointing! App is useless to me!
No more live stream??? 1/5
Agree with all...what's the deal with no live streaming. I stream all the time. Why is there a little TV icon on the bottom? Choose it and does nothing. Somebody mentioned GPS, my location services are ON "While Using" and still no streaming. I need to make sure my other devices DO NOT get updated to this version! At least the old one still works.
C'mon MSNBC, NBC, Comcast, get it together!
I wish I could vote 0 - no more live feed - useless! 1/5
This is a useless app without the live feed. Seriously folks!
Horrible! No Live Feed! 1/5
Live feed said I needed to turn location services on. I didn't want to do this but I did it anyway, but the live feed still doesn't work. Bad bad bad app. I used to watch MSNBC on my phone and iPad every day. Now it's useless and I won't be back.
LOST LIVE STREAM 1/5
Title says it all. Went from Ok app to crap. What's up with that?
Update 1: I can stream fro my. Able provider but only on my home network (cox). Little consolation though.
Update 2: I deleted the app from my phone and re-synced just the MSNBC app from my laptop, which had the previous version. Working fine again. If you sync apps regularly you should delete the app from iTunes to avoid accidentally updating your mobile device.
No live feed - bad! 1/5
I downloaded this and enjoyed the live feed. Then it went away. I didn't like the location permission either, nor did I like the sign-in to view the old shows. What were they thinking? It's a news channel!
Great content but please add background audio only option 4/5
Great content but please add background audio only option
FROM BAD TO WORSE 1/5
Now I can't watch live... SERIOUSLY, this is unsatisfactory. I watched live the day before you brought this update out.
Piece of crap 1/5
No more live streaming now who could care less!!!
msnbc app w/out live is stupid
App is terrible now! 1/5
You do not need my location. I turn it off to save battery. And since your website requires flash a dying virus written technology. I don't use it either. You guys need to rethink your strategy going forward as privacy is of most importance and the way you are handling it is quite poor considering you're a news agency.
Much better! 5/5
So far this update is pretty good. The new UI makes soooooo much more sense (no more weird, tiny menu in the top-right) and I can easily see the programming schedule now.
I'll be curious how this "sync with password manager" works. So far I haven't seen it. Previously the app asked for my credentials way too frequently and always at the worst time. I hope this makes entering my password much easier and faster. I'm a 1Password user by the way.
I streamed to my Apple TV for a bit and the performance was way better than it has been recently. Not sure if it's because of the update or not but I kinda hope so.
Want MSNBC live 1/5
Please create an app so we can watch MSNBC live. CNN has it, you should too.
Ugh! They got rid of the live feed 2/5
The live feed is why I used this app. Love the chromecast integration, not worth giving up the live feed for!
Do not update! 1/5
Latest version of the app demands access to your phone's GPS in order to view live TV. Very user-hostile move. Deleted the app over this change.
Cannot watch Live anymore 1/5
Are used to be able to watch MSNBC live by logging in with my cable provider. This option is gone and with no explanation. This app is quite useless to me now.
Needs Joy 5/5
Not many commercials, love Rachel and Chris. Get Joy Reed on and dump Joe!
Great news shows 5/5
Love this app, the only thing I wish was different is how many episodes are available. Wish you could go back a lot farther on Rachel Maddow and The Last Word.
Nice App 5/5
It's great to have a direct access to the source via this app. I hate going to YouTube thinking I'm going to MSNBC only to see some other title that wants my subscription...someone I don't know and has no credibility online. This app lets me skip right to the credible source. Thank you!
Glad to have the app 4/5
By Mt Holly Girl
I admit that the streaming isn't always flawless. However, I am old, and I would never have believed I would live long enough to watch TV on a phone, let alone watching shows when it's convenient. So I am pretty happy with it.
Great App 5/5
Love the app, keeps me up to date with my news on the go.
Works great! 5/5
Staying with friends who don't have cable, can still keep up with my shows. I can't sign in and get this on my computer which is aggravating, but watching on my iPhone is better than not.
Best Journalism & Awesome Rachel Maddow! 5/5
TRMS is the most accurate journalism on TV & online! America needs to watch this program each & every night so we can take back our nation from the crooked elites!
Works Great With I Phone 5 5/5
By Kevin Brad
Glad to have this app to catch-up when I can't watch on tv.
Make one for android too, please.
By Cider 4960
Great app 5/5
By Val mike
I watch MSNBC everyday. Love it!
Great App!!! Great shows! 5/5
I get my Maddow fix on the go 5/5
In the car, on a plane, in a different time zone, I've got it
Horrible Website 1/5
By Casey Auve
MSNBC is a horrible news organization.
The Truth 5/5
Y'all are my go to source in Macon, Ga. for news. As I go throughout my day in enemy territory, surrounded by people who have no interest in the truth or real news, I can always look to this app to bring me the information of the day, the way I want it, and by people I respect. Best news app on the AppStore.
Would have given 5 stars......... 3/5
By Portland Mailman
If it weren't for the fact that they have a very annoying percussion cadence when they haven't sold commercial time during breaks. I would rather have the commercials from cable TV than have to listen to the loud cadence. It also takes them quite awhile to get the programs available for their On Demand programs. I very rarely have a problem with the actual app. I watch it while I walk the dog and it always works greats.
Won't stream over Lte 1/5
It keeps telling me to change the settings to allow the app to stream data over cellular. Well the settings always allowed that and it doesn't know. Defect. Annoying. Useless app.
MSNBC changes for better 5/5
MSNBC changed for better after trump effect. And app is good but I hope they keep it improving but don't copy CNNs app style, nothing against CNN, but their latest app design not that good.
Live feed keeps freezing 1/5
The live feed keeps freezing and I miss a minute or so at a time having to force quit and re-open the app to try to get it started again.
Pay cable required -useless for cord cutters 1/5
You need a cable subscription that includes MSNBC. If I had one, I wouldn't need the app.
Great app 5/5
I love it!
Won't work 1/5
Downloaded the latest version. Program will not run. It displays a message to download the latest version and forces me into the app store.
Why not live on Apple TV 4/5
By Willett K
Really great programming. But makes no sense that I have a cable subscription and I can watch live from my iPad, but I can't use the Apple TV version of this app to watch live.
Great News App 5/5
Great app representing a fantastic news organization. Easy to use, reliable.
"All In" with Chris Hayes tonight: BEST NEWS IN AMERICA! 5/5
By Too many commercials!!!
Tonight I watched "All In" with Chris Hayes and Bernie Sanders hold one of the most important Town Meetings in American history.
Hat's off to MSNBC for putting HONESTY and MORALITY into reporting at a time when democracy in America is being taken over by billionaires and millionaires for their own gain at the expense of the elderly and poor.
Keep up the good work, I highly recommend this App and this type of reporting really helps keeps America GREAT!
FANTASTIC APP!! 5/5
I love this MSNBC iPhone App! It's well designed with a smooth and responsive UI. The App is clear, concise making it easy to navigate and enjoy. Oh and the best part of this App? I now get to watch Rachel Maddow wherever and whenever while I'm on the go!
Won't AirPlay to Apple TV 4/5
Also, we would love for you to make app for Apple TV.
Luv it 5/5

Only one thing... 4/5
By Word User 1991
I really wish there was an Apple TV app. I love watching on my phone and can cast it to my Apple TV but then can't use most of my other apps. Other than that I love this app.
