  • Expect problems, Don’t Expect Help 1/5

    By Earlthedog
    UPDATE: I’ve logged my problem more than once on the website and never got a reply, most recent ticket number is 171117-000819. I added the email to my address book and checked spam folder also. There’s no option to reply so I’m updating my review to include the requested information I provided the update above, as well as the this ticket #, the same day the app developer requested it and once again received no response. I’m posting it again and changing the subject line of my review in the hope that someone will notice and either fix the problem or refund my money. ——————- I love the NBA and love the idea of following it on the app, but my recent service experience has been terrible. This is my 2nd year subscribing. My access was interrupted over a week ago - I’ve used the “restore purchases” option, contacted customer service through the app and on the website and haven’t received any response. Again, when it works I love it. But if it doesn’t work and they can’t or won’t fix it, they should refund my money.

  • 无法使用了 1/5

    By Terryang
    点开应用提示要升级到最新版本才可使用,点击升级到app store却无法升级,貌似已是最新版本。彻底卸载重装才发现新版本需求ios 10,否则只能安装老版本。然而老版本已经无法使用,所以你要没有ios10这个app就废了。
  • iPad fail 1/5

    By epalme01
    App refuses to launch on my iPad. Each time I open the app, it says I need an update to launch it. Go to the App Store, no update is available. Seriously frustrating experience for a $200 product. App works fine on my later model iPhone.
  • New update to app only available with iOS 10 1/5

    By sall4real
    New update is blocking those with older iPads from using the NBA app. Would put 0 stars since app is unusable.
  • Fail 1/5

    By Cubswin39
    Without a doubt the worst professional sports ap I’ve ever seen.
  • Hide scores does not work 2/5

    By alonando
    Scores show in game recap videos description. Sad.
  • Worse and worse 1/5

    By Jazz17b
    This is my 4th time reviewing this app and my 4th time giving it 1 star. I use this app mainly to check stats and it has become incredibly annoying that it's just that part that seems to get worse and worse. The new scrolling system and massive block font is atrocious and makes checking stats game after game a hassle. Finally just downloaded another app for box scores. Also can’t see historical season averages anymore. This was an awesome feature that helped me see a players progress year to year, I find myself going to Wikipedia now all the time to look up the same information
  • Frustrating 1/5

    By sfrancoe
    Very buggy and the streaming quality is circa 1999.
  • Good when it works 3/5

    By Misst99
    Update: The last couple of versions don't update the scores consistently. It's very annoying. After reading the reviews, I expected the update to be horrible. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the way the update streamlines things. It does take a little time to get used to but is not bad. I see the games/scores right away upon launch and can watch any of the games from that screen(with league pass). I've never had any major issues with league pass and the streams are usually very clear. It's common sense that if your wifi or cell signal is weak your stream will not be good. The only thing I wish they'd change is that they would show the record of each team in the list of match ups for the day.
  • Pretty klunky 1/5

    By Uncle Dubbbbb
    Currently stuck On endless loop of "new update available" then there is no update. Various issues with app Working the not working then working then not Working..... Please fix I really watts be able to watch on the iPad
  • Don't Get It 1/5

    By Jpcrooner1962
    The recaps rarely show highlights from games. Maybe it's a licensing issue. Maybe it's just laziness. And you make us watch annoying commercials. Could be awesome but . . .
  • Fan 1/5

    By Lakersfreak
    Do not like it at all. Loved the other version. Horrible.
  • Stupid! 1/5

    By 杰克徐
    NBA is the most stupid App I’ve ever used in history! The stream is always unavailable even though you’ve already bought the stupid league pass. Can you be more stupid NBA?
  • Doesn't support anything below iOS 10 1/5

    By kuku293
    Garbage. Why would you restrict access to only those with iOS 10 and above?? Of the 50+ apps on my phone, the NBA app is the only one that requires to do so. Uninstalled.
  • CANT USE ON IOS 9 1/5

    By Chipspluschicken
    You can't use this on iOS 9. It requires you to update the app, but while the "new" update is unavailable on iOS 9, so it just says open, so you cannot update, leading the app useless
  • iOS 9 issue 1/5

    By VladitoHD
    After the new update is not working on my iPad mini 1 which have iOS 9
  • NBA app so so at best. 1/5

    By BestPres162
    I understand they are trying to improve app but now that they have gone to ISO 10 or higher they have eliminated my older IPad so I can't watch the games I purchased. They did not tell me 3 weeks ago hey your device will no longer work on Nov 17 or I would not have purchased. Their customer service is brutal so there goes 3 hours and no resolution on Monday! :(
  • Trashcan in an app 1/5

    By Poopskie mcgee
    Keeps saying it needs to update when theres no update available. Garbage developers.
  • Forcing phone update to use app. Apple/NBA Corruption 1/5

    By Bababooey2121
    I enjoyed the earlier version of this app. However, recently I greeted with the message, "Great News. There is a new version available." I could no longer use the app, and when I went to update it I learned that I needed a newer version of iOS. I have an iPhone 6. I am not planning anytime soon to shell out big money for new phone. This is a perfect example of the NBA getting in bed with Apple to force users to update their software or buy new phones -- or both. It's corruption at its finest. I wish I could give zero stars.
  • Would be zero 1/5

    By ichyowie
    App is trying to force me to update my software and I don't want to. Unbelievably poor customer service.
  • Great app to watch games 5/5

    By aymud88
    I have enjoyed being able to watch all games on here. Haven’t had any issues
  • IOS 9 no longer supported 1/5

    By Faygorgor
    So, when I purchase NBA LP for entire season, your app works with IOS 9 or at least able to use compatible version of your app, but now it is forced to update, I will have to update my IOS to 10 and above in order to watch games and you change that after I paid? Some older devices is better to stay with older IOS, please allow the older version to work!
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Nekbeth
    needs update
  • NBA is so fake... 1/5

    By Aaron.lao
    Never going to watch NBA again. It is full of operation by the league. Referees acts like without "eye ball." I don't want to waste time on this fake sport!!
  • Hey NBA guys, wake up! 1/5

    By dsTrekker
    When I try to start up the app, it says "Great news! There's a new update. etc." with only an OK button. When you click it, it takes you to the App Store, where there's only an OPEN button, no UPDATE. When you click it, it says "Great news! There's a new update. etc." Around and around. Geeze guys, you'd think you would do a little testing before putting out updates!
  • Very useful 4/5

    By super sane
    This app is very useful. Use it all the time to see when my teams games are playing
  • Just ridiculous 1/5

    By infamous crowler
    Unfathomable the lack of attention to detail that would require me to update the app in order to continue using but then offer nothing in the form of an update. ...the Hell?
  • iPhone X support for video 4/5

    By Epilix
    Good app. Haven’t had any problems at all. Was wondering if and when there will be the option to pinch to zoom while watching a game on iPhone X instead of having the borders on the edges.
  • We need to pay more? 1/5

    By Cheetah girl 55
    When a game is blacked out on your phone and you don’t want to listen to reporters talk, then when you open another app for the game for shoulder have to make another account for a game and pay more money. What I am trying to say is that if the game is blacked out on your phone then you should be able to view the game freely for just that one time very disappointing to see this very simple error.
  • NBA 5/5

    By brycen amazing awesome
    I love it.helps me keep up on basketball .I💜🏀 app it is 💯
  • Unless you want to pay you can't see anything 1/5

    By Amn18274729149684820
    I didn't pay and can't see scores-maybe it's a bug or something idk. But they only thing that really works for me is the standings and notifications. Not that special.
  • Really needs more interactive stuff 3/5

    By Do not copy this
    More interactive stuff
  • No highlights Apple TV problems 1/5

    By NBA now
    Can't watch recaps, condensed games, and replays. And it doesn't open on my Apple TV.
  • Video Freezes Every 10-15 seconds... Worthless 1/5

    By AdMan8222
    UPDATE: To be clear to the NBA app developer who didn’t read my post fully before responding or just missed the obvious Title of my review... the problem I’m having is a bad live streaming feed problem, NOT a blackout problem. If I were having a blackout problem that would the title of the review. Your feed freezes, stops and jumps ahead 15 seconds and freezes again. That’s the real problem. It’s a problem everyone seems to be having... an unreliable video feed, so fix it for everybody. No job ticket should be required! Original Review: Hooked up to Gigafi Ethernet connection and the video still freezes every 10-15 seconds. Makes it worthless. MLB app never has this problem and that app has more feeds (15 games) going on than the NBA app (4 to 8 games). I have 2 teams blacked out. Both are 500 miles away from where I live. I can understand the one team, but two? People in the northeast must have at least 6 teams blacked out. Also, it’s overpriced compared to other major sports league subscriptions. I’m underwhelmed, disappointed, and dissatisfied with the whole experience of using this app.
  • Disappointing 2/5

    By A Frustrated Community
    What should be a good app is a good idea poorly executed. The streams cannot hold up for more than 10 minutes, and rarely reach HD quality for 2 minutes straight. If I’m paying over 100 dollars I want to be able to use what I paid for. Fix your streams and their qualities.
  • VERY SLOW 1/5

    By montstradamus
    The app doesn’t work well on the amazon firestick at all.. very frustrating that I pay for league pass and the app is so bad.. I can barely watch the games, yet the commercials run perfectly smooth.. we will see how the season progresses but I’m hoping an update is coming soon lol..
  • Bad 1/5

    By RobertC123
    They clearly are not concerned with the viewers experience. I’ll go over 2 problems. My first is with the NBA iPhone app. I’m fairly new to league pass but the live games that I have tried watching on my phone have been extremely choppy ( it passes and skips forward every 5 seconds), to the point of not being able to watch the game. My 2nd problem is with the nba apps/league pass in general. I have a ps4 and you are incapable of watching games on the nba app. The same thing goes for my roku nba app (which is a streaming device). And I have a smart tv which has an internet browser and I am incapable of watching games on that when I log into my league pass account. I’m going to try watching it on my computer next but if that doesn’t work have to resort to watching games on my IPhone (which isn’t the preferred way of watching a full nba game when I’m at home) If you have any recommendations or questions please ask.
  • Why no quarter by quarter totals 3/5

    By Sunapeesam
    I downloaded and installed the app so that I would get the game results including quarter by quarter scores. I was surprised that I am unable to do that. Why can I not get quarter by quarter scores from this app?
  • Doesn’t work on Apple Watch 1/5

    By Crash test reviewer
    App is ok but simply doesn’t work on Apple Watch. Like not at all. Useless.
  • Fix it! 1/5

    By Nikovoni
    This app lags freezes and pauses like please fix this we pay a lot of money to watch and this doesn't work!
  • App won’t let us log in on devices 3/5

    By italianorino
    App worked earlier this season, now won’t let us log in. $200 and can’t use on phones or tablets Got it working again, we’ll see how it goes
  • Get it together 2/5

    By Evillalona
    It is really disappointing that we pay monthly/annual fees for league pass and the streaming service is mediocre. The streams are constantly cutting off despite good internet connection and the video quality lacks at times as well. For a service trying to satisfy its paying customers it needs to do better. It is unacceptable where it is right now.
  • Trash 1/5

    By angry nba customer
    This app and this service are complete trash. You pay 200 dollars for a premiere service to watch sports. And you get nothing in return. When I go to stream my team play I get constant stoppages in the feed due to the service you are providing. Then I emailed them with a request for a refund I get no response.
  • Please update 2/5

    By Jon23bones
    I have the league pass and for me it’s not like the nfl mobile where in the nfl mobile you can watch the ESPN games on Monday night and Thursday night games and Sunday night for the league pass if your team plays on ESPN you have to wait after the game is over which spoils the game why would I watch game that you know who ready won like fix that
  • Terrible Streaming Experience 1/5

    By Headlocl
    This is the worst of the sports streaming apps. The game consistently stalls and freezes. This season, I can’t go 10 minutes without it freezing. I’ve called support multiple times and they only tell me to delete and reinstall. Which doesn’t work. I’ve tested my internet speeds, and they are blazing. This is the only app to give me this difficulty. On phone, iPad, appleTV and website. I have better luck streaming from an illegal site, I’m wasting my money here.
  • Skipping Pausing Buffering 3/5

    By PureMIMack
    The app on the Apple TV keeps skipping pausing and buffering. Please fix it real soon!
  • Great app, but doesn’t work anymore... 2/5

    By Nickname1647
    Some time ago my nba app used to work fine. However after the last couple updates it just doesn’t work anymore. I’ve reinstalled the app over 5 times, I’ve tried restarting my phone, but nothing works... hope you can fiz that soon, I really miss the app.
  • A lot of buffering 2/5

    By lena_qt
    The app is better than last year but there is still a lot of buffering. I stream live TV all day with Playstation Vue with no problem. No problems with Netflix or Amazon Video. I have Fiber so speed for me is not the problem. Please improve this app for better viewing. The cost to watch games is high so my expectations is high too for better quality.
  • International League Pass is terrible 1/5

    By Avash
    Let me be very direct. Do not under any circumstances subscribe to International League Pass. I have been unable to watch a single game (not even reruns), there is absolutely no link for customer service and absolutely no refund. Once you’ve paid, that’s it. You will lose your money and get no service. This may be the biggest fraud on the App Store. Do not end up like me. I was a sucker and learnt my lesson (despite having read other bad reviews). Apple should also investigate this fraudulent app.
  • False advertising for League Pass 1/5

    By BarelySatisfied
    The technical aspects of the app itself work well, but the subscription offers for League Pass are deceptive. The $199.99/yr subscription clearly states that you can watch "all games" without an asterisk or footnote. But right after buying it, I tried to watch my home team's game but couldn't because it was blacked out. I tried watching other games and some of them were blacked out, too. It allows me to watch those games 3 days after they're played. VPN doesn't help because the subscription is tied to the zip code in my Apple ID. The legal fine print may cover the NBA for this deception but it doesn't cover the false advertising. The fine print coupled with the deceptive ad make the NBA an untrustworthy business. They're basically trying to trick you into buying something you may not want if you'd read the fine print. Who wants to do business with people like that? I won't again. I emailed NBA app support asking for a refund ten minutes after buying it, but they replied I had to go through Apple instead. I just spent an hour on the phone with Apple to get a refund. Also, because I haven't had a TV for over a decade, the archaic NBA League Pass's messages directing me to watch blacked out games on TV are useless. I had hoped League Pass would let me honestly watch games even though I don't have a TV.
