Last update still not good 3/5
Still can't rewind or fast forward games. You can't even drag the bar to a certain spot on the video.
Audio Feed Impovement Suggestion 3/5
I thought this app would be useful in helping me follow my Nuggets better. I love being able to keep up with the team news and games. My problem I have is, being overseas I'm subject to the blackout restrictions but still can get audio. However if I want to listen to the game I have to stay up until 2 or 3 a.m. to listen. It would be great if the NBA created a 24 hour time period for the audio feed so I can listen to the game at a regular hour, there has to be some way they could do this. The overall app is ok but I love the format of the Major League Baseball and the NBA could learn a lot from theirs, that way I have all the news from my favorite team(s) on the opening page.

You guys are a multibillion dollar industry but you come out with crappy updates that does not work with voiceover for visually impaired people that is what truly makes this app trash please fix
Young Marron 5/5
Young Marron with ice in his veins.Thats what this app is like.I used the app to watch the cavs championship while I was on the toilet.
Can't fast forward or backward 20 sec! 1/5
Please fix ASAP!!!!!!!
Extremely Disappointing 1/5
I'm not one to write a review unless it is extremely good or unfortunately bad, as in this case.
I get palpitations everytime I use this app.
Just a few of the issues: uncertainty as to whether the app will start, after pausing a game for a longer time, screen will freeze and now, you cannot fast forward a replayed game.
I have used other sports apps i.e. MLB, NFL and this is by far the worst one.
Very disappointing to say the least.
Really.... this bad. 1/5
Seriously you guys need to do some firing and hire people who know what they are doing. I won't use it anymore.
Unbelievable how pathetic this is 1/5
By Lou Stoole
The worst app on my iPhone. I pay. Why am I seeing ads? That's just the tip of the iceberg. Worse than NBA refs and that's saying something!
/r/nbastreams on Reddit
2017 needs to be the year that we all stop the NBA from stealing our hard earned money with a league pass that DOES NOT FUNCTION.
A good app and a work in progress 4/5
The changes made this year with the UI and the app itself seem to have made the app a lot more stable. However there are still features missing that the app had before, which happens with any redesign. I have had few issues with my league pass subscription.
Used to be the gold standard 1/5
By Mendy Zippel
Insanely bad user interface and user experience. Legitimately the worst app is all of sports, pro or amateur!
An ambitious redesign that failed horribly
No stars. App stil is horrible 1/5
With every update app seems to get worse. Now can't even fast forward when watching a replayed game. Another stupid thing about this app is that even if you turn off the show score option off, when you go to replay the game the final score is posted below the game replay video, so now you know who won before watching the game, making it useless to watch the game. There should be an option to turn that off as well as the team record off. If you follow your team, you know their record and when going to watch a replay you see their record under the video, again you know who won before watching the game.
Priority right now should be fixing the fast forward issue.
Worst update 1/5
Please change back to old one
Prettier but not as useful 1/5
I was pleased when I first saw the new update. It looks fresh and modern but it's not as useful as last years app. For one, there's no way to see a teams schedule unless you follow them, and then their schedule is combined with all the other teams you follow. Then, each players profile only shows you stats which are rounded up, no decimal points, which in professional sports in 2016 should be a crime. Also on the player profile you can only see stats from the previous few games and that's it, no checking what they did over the last month, let alone stats from previous years. Another big minus is lack of landscape support which makes reading the box score a huge pain. I can no longer use the official NBA to look up players to see how they've done in recent games (more than last 3 games) or previous seasons.
I really could go on and on. For die hard NBA fans, this app is close to useless. Latest update does nothing to fix these issues.
Literally the worst functionality ever. Don't worry, the ads play great! 1/5
By SpencerHayes 123
This is a great app for people who want to watch 15-30 second ads. Those never fail. Oh you want to actually use this to watch the NBA? Sorry, we can't promise your game will play. But here, enjoy another ad because we hate you.
Horrible app. I'm watching game and it goes back to the 1st quarter, or to a commercial break during the game, then goes back to live. Freezes so much. Fix it now!!!
Worse than previous version 1/5
This version has so much buffering. Also commercials randomly pop in and out during active gameplay. Something is really glitchy with the app. I just want to be able to watch a full game through without worrying about buffering. I'm paying for this service. My internet is 80mbps so I know it's not that.
Serious garbage 1/5
Games won't load properly, forced to rewatch ads OVER AND OVER. I appreciate the free league pass this week, but what's it worth of the app doesn't work AT ALL! Deserves 0 stars or negative stars
By Grizzly Stik
On making the worst app I have ever used.
Won't fit my tv screen 1/5
By Dan zepper
I watch tv by streaming television through my iPhone 4s with an hdmi cord plugged into an iPhone adapter. Every app I have fits the tv screen when my phone is tuned to landscape orientation EXCEPT for the NBA app. When turned to landscape orientation on the NBA app, my tv shows the video turned sideways, fitting only the middle of the screen to where you would have to turn your head 90 degrees to watch.
PLEASE FIX THIS!
This is keeping me from being able to watch the NBA games that were the reason I paid to purchase NBA league pass.
Besides this the app is ok, although I thought the previous version from last season was far better.
Leaving the app without exiting will cause silence 1/5
This is extremely annoying. The app goes completely silent if I leave a game or go picture-picture mode. Who the F--- is in control of this app? Your total lack of awareness/intelligence is hellish. This has been ongoing for a few months.
Why has this not been fixed? Nobody deserves this kind of treatment for 200$ a year.
NBA is growing and this D- networking staff is mindboggling.
Doesn't even show the scores 1/5
The only thing I'd like an NBA app for is seeing the scores. This gets confused in scrolling and blanks out the scores. The worst.
Please Bring the old fortmat 1/5
The new style is glitchy, takes too long to load even under good connection. It makes it boring to interact with the teams at hand. It was so much better but the updates have killed this app.
The previous version worked better. 1/5
This app is awful. Last year it ran cleanly; I could listen to audio or video as I saw fit. This year, there are random ads running in my face that I can't get rid of even though I've paid hundreds of dollars for access, and it's very difficult to distinguish between pure radio broadcast and TV broadcast. Please, take away some of the bells and whistles, clean this up, and get back to the basics or you'll lose me as a customer, NBA leaguepass.
This is the worst app that I have on my phone. It's so much worse than any of the other sports apps. The ads are huge and are in between scores. They make everything so hard to read. Now they have video ads that start right when you open the app. Absolutely awful
New App is horrible 1/5
I used to check my NBA app all the time. The new platform is so horrible now. This may be due to my older devices but that should be taken into a bit of consideration. I don't follow the NBA like I used to because of this newest version. From game recaps to The Starters videos, I really miss last season's experience.
Lots of bugs when attempting to view highlights and game recaps. Issues haven't been fixed after 4 years and multiple updates. Same issues exist on ps4 console.
Terrible app 1/5
Worst app ever, so glitchy. None of the feature work on chromecast when trying to rewind or fast forward. Manually scrolling to a certain section to watch also starts the game from the very beginning. Horrible app, waste of
Money for league pass. Will not pay again if this isn't fixed. Updates for this app don't do crap to make the app better.
Adam Silvers 9 year old nephew must've made this. No other explanation.
Worst App of All Time 1/5
Legit the most garbage poorly made app, half the time the score doesn't even show.
I used facebook to log in so it didn't give me a password and now they have made it impossible to save the new password bc the button doesn't even work and I paid 50$. SO LIVID!
Too bad! 1/5
It's terrible. Last year it had a lot of bugs but you still can watch games! This year it gets even worse. I can't even watch any ongoing games. So please give A REASON to purchase that league pass! It's a waste of money and time! 👎👎👎
Nba app used to be 1/5
By Me in la
Nba app used to be my go to place for nba scores and schedule , now it is terrible .its slow and crashes often , i cant believe the nba would even allow this app to represent them .I understand they need income but the advertisement is crazy on this app.I believe the apps loading is whats causing the app to be so slow and crash so often.
I love this app 5/5
By Pete from da hood
I didn't feel like writing a long comment so I'm just gonna say I love this app!
Terrible Update 1/5
The previous NBA app worked great, transitions were great, and viewing videos were easy to do. This version of the app crashes way too often.
Why so many ads?! 1/5
Get rid of the ads and I'll update my review. The ads make it impossible to scroll through the scores and schedule.
Just use ESPN 1/5
Clumsy design. Virtually useless without League Pass.
Continues to disappoint! 1/5
Almost halfway through the season and I still experience multiple crashes/bugs every game I watch...
Complete Junk 1/5
Anyone successfully cast an All-Star ballot on this piece of crap?? Instructions tell me repeatedly to tap buttons that don't exist.....😡😡😡😡😡
This app gets worse every season. Design team should spend some time studying the MLB At Bat app. That's how these things are supposed to work.
1st ever app review 1/5
Terrible. A smart fourth grader, not worth billions, could do better.
How can they charge $200 for league pass? 1/5
It doesn't work! I can't live stream games. The league just stole my money. This is a horrendous app with no redeeming value
Great but just one thing to fix 5/5
By MR. FIX THIS APP
You need to put all of the schedules for all the teams back on their that would make it perfect
NBA Leaguepass fail 1/5
Last year this NBA app worked great. It was clean, ran smoothly, no crashes, games available on time and replays available immediately when a game ended (including local black out games). This year 2017, the app lags, doesn't always load game info, scrolls poorly and causes inadvertent AD hits and usually an app crash. This is compounded by the fact that Leaguepass is less compatible this year - I have AT&T Uverse and my Leaguepass purchase can't be activated with Uverse without charging an additional $200. So I'm stuck using an APP that loads poorly, scrolls badly, and is overall frustrating. Please fix before next season or you will have one less Leaguepass subscriber. The headache of using this isn't worth watching the games.
Auto Renew 2/5
In the description for the app for League Pass it states that the subscription will auto renew. If you then go to subscriptions in your Apple account to manage the subscription it doesn't show up. So, i had to sit with support for 30 minutes to figure out where to manage the subscription only to be told that there's actually no auto renewal despite what the description in the app says?!?!?
Unusable! NBA Digital LISTEN: 1/5
Copy the MLB App: it's about keeping fans and complimenting the fan's sports experience! So, change your development team, and then do the following IMMEDIATELY:
1. Remove ads which actually hinder performance, and they make me NOT ever want to tap any video articles (Not extending my experience!). The ads in between scores are just plain greedy, slow, and buggy.
2. Bring back career stats and additional stats!! Why do I even have to ask for this one?
3. Make the players' names tappable wherever their name is, so you can get to their scorecard anywhere you are. Again, scorecards are important! That's why we're sports fans!
This app used to be on the first screen of my iPhone, now it's gone. Make me put it back by doing the above 3 things! Step up your game!
Needs bug fixes asap!! 1/5
Good start, but got to keep improving. Not impressed overall though.
Waste of money 1/5
They advertise the ability to watch on the devise of your choice, however I can only watch on my phone. iPad app never loads, Xbox app never loads and is very spotty on my computer. The quality of this app is pretty garbage for how much they charge. 1/10 would not recommend, don't even waste your money. You're better off looking for free streams online because you will probably encounter fewer problems that way compared to this app.
By Peter Pitchford
How could an app of a multi-billion dollar industry be this bad? Hire a developer that knows what he is doing, please
Good app 5/5
I don't know why people are giving it bad reviews it works fine for me.
