Utter Garbage 1/5
Zealous moon-bat opinions - nothing more. It's astonishing that MSNBC cannot come to grips with their own bias - stubborn and foolish. Their disdain for Trump is obvious, but their fierce opposition to the entire current administration makes them look petty and small.
No more background app refresh 3/5
I used to be able to stream this to my Apple TV and lock my phone. This no longer works and the option to enable background refresh is not present.
Over 4 weeks in and no fix 1/5
The app won't verify when I'm on my home network. The app won't live stream if I'm on my home network. All new requirements are turned on and nothing works.
Is it that hard to fix?
Don't like Update 1/5
Updating to say I now get kicked off right after signing on. It was fixed for a while and now I can't even launch the site. Please fix! Thanks.
I wasn't a huge fan of the old app either but at least it didn't kick me off! I just got the update last night and now I have a glitchy update that freezes every 20 minutes or so and then periodically closes out. Please fix! Thanks.

Used to play in the background. Not anymore. Can't have that—paying customers liked it.
Can't log on to Google Fiber anymore 2/5
By Mercenary Writer
This makes me sad, and the app useless. Freezes during account log on. Only shows a white screen. #sad #MakeGoogleGreatAgain
App or new apple update? 1/5
I can't sign in. The login page won't come up from my service provider.
Stay signed in 2/5
I wish it would not keep asking me to sign in every couple days. It gets old after a while ...
New upgrade 1/5
How many times do I need to log in?
Love it! 5/5
Thank you so much for adding the chrome cast tab! I use this app daily and it always runs smoothly!
Edit: I've come to accept MSNBCs need to monetize at the expense of user experience, but could they for once have current episodes of their shows? I don't ever want to watch Rachel Maddox from three days ago. Never. How hard is it to put out a digital copy of a show you just aired, and probably recorded digitally as it was airing?
So now I can't use it unless I update my iOS..... Thanks
LOST LIVE STREAM 1/5
V6.0.2 Build 10403
Streaming now works.
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.
This new version keeps requiring me to sign into my satellite provider. I won't be using this app anymore.
Good but... 5/5
PLEASE add the option to speed up the videos.
Not good enough 1/5
Forces me to sign in multiple times a week. Does not remember my login. Why is there no subscription.
There is no Apple TV app. AirPlay is very irritating.
Also no audio only.
Shows are uploaded at erratic times. Why are they not uploaded as they air, like on HBOnow? Just not good enough. I have given up watching Maddow because of this app.
All these updates. No improvement.
Terrible since update 1/5
By Brutality In The Raw
I used to be able to stream all the time without wifi, but since the update I can get one sentence here and there. Unusable.
Doesn't stay logged in. Doesn't connect to shows when it finally does.
Trying to figure out why I'd use this cause its consistency is so bad.
Barely functional on iOS 10 1/5
By Tahoe Jimbo
This update still messes up the video when you try to send the audio to airplay speakers. You can hear the program, but the video turns into this weird semi-transparent mess.
The app is still a bit unstable, and I find myself forcibly quitting and restarting it to get it to play properly (and refresh the available content).
Also, why does it take a day or more for some shows to appear? Chris Matthews showed up tonight shortly after broadcast, while Rachel Maddow is two days behind?
The App makes me sign into it with my cable provider login, so there shouldn't be any content barriers.
And why does it force me to turn on my location? Again, I've authenticated myself as a paying customer using my cable credentials. That should be enough.
Crashiest app ever! 1/5
I use the MSNBC app to stream to my Apple TV. If I try to do anything else on my phone while I'm watching, the app crashes. And sometimes it just crashes on its own. I usually have to re-log in to my cable provider to re-authorize the app 2-3 times per week. The new layout / user interface is nice, but I wish more time had been spent on making it actually work.
Upgrade still not live streaming 1/5
By Grumpy MSNBC fan
Logged in to provider. Location turned on.
Uninstalled and reloaded.
Contact Us not working.
Get rid of that terrible sound during breaks. The repetitive beat drives you crazy. Play ads or real music. Cannot watchthus anymore. PLEASE GET RID OF THAT SOUND!
Repeat commercial ads - MADDENING!! 1/5
By LosAngeles, CA
I stream MSNBC in background all day while I'm at office. I used to stream MSNBC.com on PC, until I discovered the app didn't play the same maddening commercial ads & jingles every single commercial break...that is, until this latest app overhaul. Now the app does same as PC streaming -- repeat the same ads & jingles EVERY SINGLE commercial break...this, multiplied MANY TIMES in a single hour is mental torture - multiply that several hours in workday and it's nothing short of maddening!!! If you won't fix this repetitive ad issue across your streaming platforms, then at least provide an option in SETTINGS to mute commercial ad play".
For sanity sake fix this!
Bill g 1/5
By Wrg 980
Hard to use A royal pain.
Location requirement 1/5
GPS location should not be required for a media app, particularly when logging in with a content provider. This privacy violation is unacceptable.
El Crapo 1/5
Multiple false positives log in errors. Crashes all the time in comparison to peer news apps. Very unstable. The latest version has a GPS bomb built in requiring you to open up to location services. (None of their business where I'm at) Finally, MSNBC's business model isn't 'sound and the app reflects it. Why should I pay for a cable subscription when competitor apps function better. Check out the CBS News App. No subscription, no login, works all the time. Big cable news needs to understand. It's about the consumer not the advertiser. Go with a direct subscription model.
Weak streaming 2/5
By KB Bob
Just like their website, this app is not up to basic standards of smooth streaming. CNN Go and YouTube live channels work well for me. I wish MSNBC could figure it out
Consistent crashing and latency 2/5
While the new design/dashboard are nice and easier to navigate than earlier versions, I find that it frequently crashes whether I'm using it on a 6s or 7. There also appears to be more latency that before.
By Godalmighty why
New update makes no sense, freezes up, turns off by itself, goes to the app page when screen is touched. Using my brothers xfinity app right now to watch live tv, you should go to it and try to get your app to work like theirs. Thank you for trying.
I took some time, a lot of fun

True good, so a good software makes me very happy!
There are many mysteries waiting for you to discover
Fun share, of course
Location requirement stinks 1/5
The update to this app will not work unless I disclose my location. It is now unusable, since I have no reason to allow MSNBC to track my location when I use the app.
Fix it, or lose a steady viewer.
Most live up to your affectionate than this
Believe in yourself, do you want it
I like to believe you also like it
This is a very special software, like
Torture sound track? 1/5
Is anyone at MSNBC listening to the soundtrack during the commercials on streaming devices? It's torturous and absurd. I cannot imagine that anyone of reasonable intelligence signed off on it, or that anyone who has listened to it since didn't say what were we thinking?
