TURN OFF THE CLOSED CAPTIONING 1/5
The app works, but there is no way to turn off the CLOSED CAPTIONING. please fix.
Broken again 1/5
By Chess Boxing
Won’t let me log on to my tv provider.
Great content but it works when it wants to :(
CBS has great app, don’t bother with NBC 1/5
You have to have cable provider and you still get commercials.
Spinning wheel of death 1/5
By Scott Wolff
That is what you see mostly when you use this app. It’s constantly freezing to buffer most of the time my screen times out before it finishes buffering. Many times it just doesn’t come back at all until you close out the app and restart. Go with Reuters never fails me.
Good, but lacks picture-in-picture functionality 3/5
This app works well for live-streaming MSNBC and playing MSNBC shows on-demand after they have already aired. I haven’t had any real issues with performance other than the occasional buffering lag. I do think, however, that an app like this really needs to have the picture-in-picture function, so it will keep playing in the corner if you leave the app to check your email or something. This is definitely the kind of programming that you might want to follow while you do other work on your tablet. If they add picture in picture, I’ll increase my rating to 5 stars.
Worst app ever 1/5
Keeps shutting itself down. Waste of time to download.
Works fine. Phony reviews are the negative ones. 5/5
Works perfectly. No problems or complaints.
Clown Show 1/5
Your sensationalized attacks on the administration are getting worse!
Do you realize how foolish you look? You really should take a more measured approach- you’re embarrassing yourself.
Look good but loads slowly, needs buffer 5/5
Look good but loads slowly, needs buffer.
Needs also an active search
Desperate State Run TV viewers 1/5
Love the Bubble-breather faux news watchers unable to parse propaganda from factual reporting and then try to conflate problems web the app with political posturing. It's sad how gullible the no-democracy party has become so susceptible to the completely propaganda-based narrative pouring from their televisions in full Orwellian fashion. Do these people not remember civics 101 or government classes, or even high-school level for crying outloud.
You're watching the decline of western civilization if you're watching the "Lock Her Up" network.
Never remembers login 2/5
By DA DUCK !!!!
Endless issues with this. Seriously, let me set my cable provider, select “remember me”, and actually do that. Ugh.
0 Stars. I’m just addicted to the news. 1/5
This app crashes as if it’s that’s the sole purpose of creating it.
Day old news 1/5
Day old news in 2018 is useless.
Cord cutter 1/5
I refuse to pay for FOX News w part of my money. This app is useless to me until it is available without a cable subscription.
Downloaded, then deleted. Terrible! 1/5
By Prof Keynote
Can’t even watch full shows from each day! What’s even the point of a useless app like this? Must be a group of high school kids programming this app. Useless and terrible!
100% opinion. No news. 1/5
Can’t stand the biased slanted opinion they spew, they’re essentially the Democratic Party’s Press team.
MSNBC is the best 5/5
By MEH (my initials, really)
MSNBC is the best and most honest political watch there is. The news people are excellent investigative journalist around.
Ap no longer works 1/5
Maybe it’s because I have an older phone but it used to run MSNBC just fine. Now it won’t load. I’m so utterly disappointed as MSNBC is one of my fave news outlets!
Left leaning content from a mostly useable app. 3/5
MSNBC is hardly the only news outlet with a political point of view. But it’s an important part of any *balanced* news diet, especially if the source’s viewpoint does not match your own. No one will respect your opinion if you live in an echo chamber.
The app itself is only fine. Not great. I use it mostly to watch the live stream. Honestly, the app desperately needs an AppleTV version. But casting the video to my AppleTV works and I can do other things on my iPhone while it does... which is nice.
But really. Join the news club and release an AppleTV version with the live stream.
Airplay constantly freezing up 3/5
Why haven't you come out with an appletv app? We love watching you everyday but constantly have to reset the feed because it constantly freezes when air-playing it to the appletv. And its not the air play feature because other apps work fine. Just make an appletv app that allows live feed! Please!!!!
Honest and to the point. 5/5
This is where you get the facts, truth, and are allowed to come to your own conclusions regarding current events. Unlike Fox whose sexist and racist cast of unpatriotic characters live by “alternative facts” aka lies and bs!! The only people still watching that crap are the uneducated, cult following psychopaths living in fear of the next conspiracy theory put out by the Alt Right! They are all so pathetic and cowards to face the reality of what truth is. Any level headed person who sees through the bs from persons on the right are best served to stop wasting your time trying to reach these pea brained idiots. Hopefully one day they’ll all crawl back into the holes they came out of. 🖕🏽
What is MSNBC thinking? No dedicated AppleTv app. Stuck with AirPlay from this app and it constantly crashes. Really disappointed in MSNBC. For a company that considers itself “progressive” it is way behind everyone else. I’m to the point where I’m going to stop using it. Pitiful.
Great Concept...Horrible conclusion 1/5
1. The videos don’t load. Error message says can’t load contact the app providers .
2. Subtitles are avail even if you un-select the option.
3. In the past when you closed the app it would leave you in the spot you were when you stopped. Now it just crashes and you have to start all over.
4. Not all shows are available in a few hours or days
What is wrong today....... 1/5
By Colonel Ellis
It’s been acting up for about a week.....stopping, starting and volumn sporadic. Now, it will not come on at all. Screen is dark and nothing is happening.
Very disappointing app. I always look forward to watching Morning Joe but not recently.
What is going on?????????????
Can't activate location = not work!!! FIX 1/5
By Someone 999
And w/o being able to activate location the app won't let me connect to the show live.
Defeats the entire purpose of the app. UNACCEPTABLE
Terrible, frustrating app 1/5
By John Blauner
Every morning I attempt to watch; it delays starting, stops continuously and loops back to material already seen and heard! I am always yelling at it. This may be the worst app ever!
Works great! 5/5
Not sure what the other reviewers are talking about, as this app works exactly as advertised. I’ve watched Nicole Wallace’s show for three straight days while waiting to pick up my kids from school with no issues. If you have less than LTE or good WiFi, the video will buffer. We should all know by now that this is the case with any streaming app.
2 weeks ago started pausing midstream 2/5
Two weeks ago the app started pausing midstream every time I would view a live stream. And it happens every two minutes or so. So every two mins I have to close the app and restart just to keep watching. So frustrating and not sure why it just started happening now. Makes this app practically unusable.
6.40 crashes 1/5
By Jan in Va
I love and miss my MSNBC ap! After this last update, I get a brief white screen then it crashes. Before it would sputter along with paused video, repeating loops and minor wonky behavior (which I yhink was worse after the 6.3 update). Please fix this ap!
Frequently freezes, and long buffering; and I have a premium internet connection 😥
Sorta great customer support/ crappy app 2/5
I had a closed captioning problem and contacted customer support by email. I got a response almost immediately and the problem was easily fixed. Now when it comes to criticism though you get no response period. I think everyone here knows this app is pretty horrible. I keep hoping for improvements, every update they say bug fixes, but nothing really changes and the live feed is pretty much unwatchable. Also Still no Apple TV app.
Non-functioning App 1/5
Public service requires this app to be pulled out of the store
Streaming....or mostly not 1/5
Just a question. Is this app EVER going to work correctly?!
Does not work. I had to delete it, was to frustrating.
WHY CANT YOUR PROBLEM BE FIXED ????? 1/5
Your app is BROKEN! It happened about a week ago. Video stream freezes, packets get mixed up so that the sequence jump around. I reinstalled the app. Tried on iPad, iPhone. The same. It’s broken from your side. Please GET IT FIXED. We cannot watch at current condition. It’s NOT working!
Glad to know I’m not the only one 1/5
I second all the other comments.
So Disappointed 1/5
By EMBOC reviews
I loved being able to use this app but somewhere along the line it’s quality has diminished to the point of making it unusable.
Video Unviewable 1/5
Rarely do I comment about app performance but I feel compelled to do so here because as a longtime watcher of MSNBC I cannot watch the live feed using the app due to the degraded performance of this upgrade. What's going on with the video? I was willing to suffer through repetitive commercials but for all the reasons listed by others the app is useless. Who was on the team for this latest upgrade? Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity?
Update: Last night another upgrade to the app was posted citing minor bug fixes. Are the developers of this seriously flawed app even reading the negative feedback and poor ratings? The video doesn't work! The app isn't functional.
From bad to worse 1/5
Constantly crashing. Casting to TV results in “Sorry, there was an error with your device”.
No, the error was the app itself. As others have stated, it’s not MY internet connection. I’m not quite sure which, if any, bugs were fixed in this latest update. But I can say there’s several new bugs that render this app virtually useless. Uninstalled. Wish I could rate this negative 3 stars.
Please fix. 1/5
What happened to this app? It used to be pretty good - Now only a rotating circle. Cannot get live broadcasts or On Demand. Please fix.
Can we please get a better app? 2/5
I use this app daily to stream shows from the morning through evening. I can only get Morning Joe going about half of the time. I’m lucky if it loads at any other time either, although then I’ll surely be dealing with incessant buffering and skips forwards and backward even when it does! Please fix this app! The news is frustrating enough AS IS without these glitches.
Live function doesn’t connect. Cmon.
Does not work 1/5
By The Independent Critic
Will not play live video. Just loads and loads indefinitely.
Low grade app 1/5
‘Watch live’ rarely works
Constant ‘Oops something went wrong’ messages while attempting to watch playbacks
Just an all around irritating, low grade app
If it wasn’t for Rachel Maddow, I’d give up on MSNBC completely
New update is worse 1/5
Whatever bug you fixed only made things worse. Streaming doesn’t work on over 100/mbs. Seriously fire your developers!
Very Poor App 1/5
Video freezes or won’t load despite being on a 100 down 10 up connection. This is a long term problem.
Cut out the middle man 1/5
By I love the D... chord
I would download this (and pay for it) if you didn’t make me sign in thru “my tv provider”... I don’t need to do that with my PBS app, HBO app, Amazon, not Netflix. Cable companies are trying to find a place for themselves as they are becoming more irrelevant, and that drives up costs, but there are other streaming business models that cut them out as a TV provider... cut the unnecessary middle man out of the deal and I’ll buy this app
Poor performance 1/5
Even with the update to 6.4.0, the multitude of performances issues/ bugs continue.
Recommend a serious effort to makes the app better- the latest rev isn’t it.
Since 1-29-18 update app won't open 1/5
Since today's update, the app won't open on 2 different iPads. Prior to this update many problems with the video freezing, skipping backwards, freezing.
