App is junk 1/5
Does not update unless you delete the app and reinstall it. This app is junk. Don't waste your time!
Glitchy at times and pop up bar interferes with Apple menu 2/5
Overall ok, but glitchy at times. With a recent update, the bar now appears on the bottom of the screen when double clicking the home button and is very annoying as it overtakes the apple menu. Ready to delete the nightly news app if not fixed.
Apple TV app Please!! 2/5
By Film Score Nerd
Get with it guys. Come on!!
Post full episodes on time! 1/5
We rely on this daily. But episodes are never posted when they are supposed to, and it pauses all by itself. The app for Apple TV is even worse. Post episodes on time!!
'Real News' on my time!! 3/5
By Flight Speed
Great app!! Enjoy being able to see today's broadcast anywhere I may be. 2 stars off for missed episode S (not uploaded to app for some reason?!?!) and adds that run during the broadcast. Otherwise, good stuff.
Not bad but needs work 3/5
By Lantana, FL
I like NBC Nightly News but this app is frustrating at times. Before 10 pm ET, you can see the stories but not the full broadcast. Supposedly, after 10 pm ET, you can see the full broadcast. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work that way. Fix that and you get 5 stars!
Your are fake news
Just cut the cord 4/5
Just dropped cable last weekend and I was used to have Nightly News available on my DVR if I couldn't watch at 6:30 precisely. I like a coherent, quick newscast vs the endless bickering, babbling and pontificating seen on the cable networks.
Despite having the NBC app and THREE streaming services, they only offer yesterday's episode. What good is that?
This was exactly what I wanted. Being able to see tonight's news, tonight. There was one quick ad but that was it. One star off since I couldn't cast to my TV.
One 15 second ad before the full, undisturbed episode. Need I say more?
Too many ads, deleting the app 1/5
Now has more ads than content. Trashing this app.
Ancient technology, pathetic talent, lousy programming and biased views.
Forget to post episodes 2/5
Half of all Saturdays and Sundays there are no updated videos, you're just expected to watch Friday's broadcast 3 nights in a row.
Thank you NBC 5/5
Live on the east side of the Sierra Nevada between Bishop, CA and Dyer, NV with super super weak bandwidth limited wifi, but every night I can tune in to Lester Holt on my iPhone, and connect with humanity for half an hour. I look forward to that, one of rural life's little pleasures. Thank you NBC.
Videos skip 1/5
Hope you like the same Amazon commercial 1/5
By Shopper 300
I opened the app to watch the latest news and ended up watching at least a dozen Amazon Bosch commercials over and over. I've emailed support three times with only a robot email response in return
New update. 1/5
The news update brought more ads. It only plays 2 clips and after that it plays a ad for 30 seconds and then again 2 clips and then back to square 1. This app is trash I'm going to delete it and just use the browser only one ad for 30 seconds and that's it.
Incorrect labels, no sound in videos 2/5
You really need to fire who ever is managing this app, the video are incorrectly labeled, some don't have sound or are the wrong date. And it is never up to date your always 2 days behind so dumb, Bring back podcast cause your app is horrible!!
Lost ALL Credibility 1/5
Biased AF! When you report BS political news, how do we know if the other stories are true? You don't. I deleted this POS app & you all do the same!
Bias 100% liberal news cast, 4 years I never questioned it. 1/5
By Todd's Mac
Used 2 watch NBC News DAILY. BUT I realized how BIAS NBC is- seemingly without exception! I became disgusted & disgruntled! The fluff news is entertaining BUT the real news is so far "left" or liberal I quit watching all together. I don't mind a liberal view point but I also want it presented with an equal & fair opposing conservative view. I feel people haven't checked out channels that give a non-opinionated non-bias prospective like Fox. I think if people only knew they had to personally fact check some news items, they too would likely take offense toward any news source that would take the liberty of airing news based on their own opinion & conclusions. I think they would feel violated and certainly let down.
I still tuned in to watch Matt Laurer interview President Bush recently & using tactics I used to feel were " tough & dedicated " toward finding facts on a non-opinionated platform on the viewers behalf, were in fact tactics used to draw out & openly query Bush. Matt tried with vigor to give statements or ask questions that were very LEADING,BIAS or Narrow & specifically designed to draw pointed or partial statements from Bush that could later be used to twist & support Matt's Lauer's personal political agenda. I used to have unwavering support for Matt but the stations & his own political agendas are leaning left at such a low angle they allow absolutely no room for old fashioned "present news facts as accurately & with complete reverence to the speakers original message & tone as possible. NBC would NEVER air an option given by the "right wing" on video or tape without either modifying or showing perhaps only a % of the full story in order to slant the real meaning of the news with bias or ploy. Like it or not about 1/2 of the people in the US want to hear the real story with out a slant. It's so bad that as I tried to give NBC a chance over a month- NOT 1 REFERENCE TO CURRENT Trump White House REPUBLICAN PARTY AGENDA WAS presented in a neutral or more likely negative misleading news presentation.
I'm not going to be forced to watch ads. Charge for the app. Deleting and moving on.
⭐️fake news 1/5
This news station has caused so much unrest and so much divide in our country. Its not trust worthy and reports mostly lies.
Very! Negative News! 1/5
Been watching you for 40 years no more ever since the election Utube is it! Good bye NBC News.. More 1 stars than any other category of stars! You guys are so evil and disrespectful... Happy St. Patrick's Day☘️
I'm DONE 1/5
When they got rid of Brian Williams I nearly quit watching.... Just got through watching coverage of the President's speech last night.... As far as THEIR concerned he can't breath right..... So SICK of their biased reporting.... They won't give him a Benefit of a doubt.... SO I'm Done!!!!!!After watching EVERY night its on for OVER 30 years.... Make me SICK now to watch...... SHAME on YOU NBC😡😡😡
Poorly Executed 2/5
It amazes me how bad this app is. I would think by this stage in app development that stitching apps amongst actual content would be common place and easy, yet somehow NBC has figured out a way to mess it up. The app routinely crashes while transitioning from news content to ads and back. Also, no matter what network I am on, whether it be cellular or wifi, the app routinely displays a message blaming "weak network connectivity". Really? YouTube doesn't seem to have any issues. Netflix either.
One Sided News Only 1/5
Had to remove this app from my iPhone as their news is truly one side it only. Does not express the true news, only their spin on it; or, the way they want you to see the news around the world. Removed this app from my phone.
Back to being my number one 5/5
I used to use this every morning to watch the news from the night before. After an update last year broke it for weeks, I switched to CBS. Recently, CBS upped the interrupting ad content to be as bad as the live show, so I've come back, and I'm happy to find the app working as it should again. It doesn't crash, and I get one ad at the outset, and then the news, start to finish.
Full broadcast not available on time 1/5
The full broadcast is supposed to be available on the app by 10 pm eastern time, but frequently is not. They make clips available and you have to watch a commercial per clip. This app doesn't deliver consistent content.
Chromecast adaptation 1/5
By Velipe M.G
Hello the app works fine, could be better if the app can stream in the Chromecast, because I used and works better then Apple TV, without lag and bug. And is more accessible to my tv.
Great program, great app 4/5
Been using this app over a year, without any problems. I enjoy sharing certain segments from time to time, either on Facebook or email, and that works every time. Internet connection must be strong or normal, not weak. Content of this show is majorly balanced, but leans democratic vs republican. Overall is is good coverage on USA news. Even works without any other subscription, so also outside the USA. Great when traveling.
App runs fine need an unbiased news source. Deleting app 1/5
By Cider zzz
App runs fine need an unbiased news source. Deleting app, finding a new channel to watch as well
Only if you're a Trump supporter 5/5
This deserves 5 stars only if you're a Trump supporter. Completely biased coverage in favor of Trump. They make him look good in everything he does. Saves jobs, brings money to the US, makes the best decisions, blah blah blah, Only watch this channel if you're a Trump supporter.
Pretty good, needs Chromecast support. 4/5
Good roundup, decent app. Would be great if it had Chromecast support in order to cast to my tv in the morning. I'd use it every day if it did. Take reviews with a grain of salt. Surprising number of paranoid news-conspiracy theorists taking time to review this app.
Completely biased coverage 1/5
What has happened to you? I grew up watching you and knew that I was getting the actual take on the day's events... But now I see nothing but one sided praise, no coverage at all of Clintons likely crimes and on the flip side. If President Trump could find a job for everyone and then end world hunger, somehow you would be searching for the real news. You would look for anything that you could create to disparage his efforts. I have an idea, why not show America all of President Trumps many accomplishments as well as those of his Cabinet choices. Enough dirt already. I have deleted your app and removed you from my tv ide. This is our permanent goodbye!
Only push a liberal bias opinions. This isn't reporting. Trash
By Chilly chill 503
Worst app ever
News? Propaganda more like it. 1/5
I guess if you want to know if there's an earthquake or a plane crash then NBC does a good enough job but if you want to know anything related to politics or social news NBC is not a News source. It is liberal propaganda.
NBC not believable news 1/5
These people create fake news to incite violence and the shooting of police officers in cold blood.
Check out infowars.com instead.
Fake news. 1/5
Extreme liberal slant.
Coverage is weak. 1/5
The coverage of the news is weak. There's so much more going on in these days we need an objective view on the news. Just seems to be slanted to me.
awful totally biased
Sleek. Serves its purpose. 5/5
By Rob Is The Nickname
Sleek. Serves its purpose.
My favorite 5/5
By Farmer Chin
I look forward to watching this newscast at the end of the day. There might be a slight ad at the beginning, but I haven't seen any in between. My only issue is that it never seems to have the Saturday night broadcast. Other than that, this is my favorite.
Needs Improvement 2/5
I just want to watch the nightly news in one solid piece. I do not like it broken up into segments. It USED to be that you could watch the whole show with smooth segues between stories; not anymore.
Used to be great 2/5
I'v used this app for two years and the current version doesn't work well. I usually miss the Nightly News and I like to watch it the next morning while I get ready for work. Now when I try to watch it in the morning the previous day's news is often not there, or only one small clip will load at a time. Please update soon!
I love this app 5/5
I seem to have a contrarian view here but I really enjoy using this app. it works well for me and I am glad it exists. i would be very disappointed if they removed it based on all the negativity of the reviews. this is a free app after all so not sure what all the fuss is about.
Too many ads 1/5
Used to be a great app. Please go back to one ad at the beginning of the broadcast. Also would like the newscast to be available immediately versus only after 1-2 hours.
I am deleting the app and will revisit in a month to see if anyone listened to the feedback on the AAppStore.
Unstable, data gobbling ads, not up to date. 1/5
Unstable, data gobbling ads, not up to date.
Today, August 15, I open up the app and click on call broadcast which launches me to open up Safari and watch the Olympics. So I hit cancel and reloaded the app. Now I choose to play the first story listed and see if it will play each story back to back like a Daisy chain. Well after playing a 30 second commercial, the first story then played two thirds of the way and then played the first one third of another story. After that was done, it did the same thing for the next two stories then decided to play a video clip that is six minutes long and seems like the full broadcast but it wasn't and kept jumping around from storage story dropping in wherever it felt like it. This app is ridiculously unstable. I understand the need for revenue and that being said, keeping the ads to a minimum would suffice but I as well as the rest of my family with our countless iOS devices are tired of wasting our money on apps that consume data (especially while on LTE since Wi-Fi isn't an option) for ads as well as a malfunctioning app.
Bye bye App 1/5
By Barb Redgreen
Used to be good, now annoying. When I click to start the full length 20 minutes news, the only thing that comes is a white screen for the Olympics, and it doesn't even load. But I don't want to watch the Olympics.
Please stop the ads! 2/5
By Martin 10012
You already have us using the app as customers. With this tiring use of ads you scare us away from a otherwise terrific app.
Add download feature! 3/5
By nima sb
Would be great if we can download the broadcasts for offline use.
