I would feel ashamed.
By steven anita smith
As the title suggests I got the app for cycling as content goes fabulous nbc allows you to purchase just the sport you want to watch...now as far as the app itself horrible is to soft a word there is no good way to accurately describe how bad it is.
Zero stars for functionality of the app
Five stars for content
Highway robbery 1/5
It is absolutely ridiculous that I am being asked to pay for a subscription while I am paying for cable to watch programming that was included last year. Why am I having to pay for others cutting the cord?!!
Overall horrible. 1/5
By Roaming MLS Fan
Horrible app. You pay $50 a season to not be able to log in or have it buffer or just cut out all together. I will find the games for free from here on out. These crooks don't deserve our money.
Less for more 1/5
By Year-round commuter
I bought the $50 annual subscription to watch the Premier League, for matches that used to be included with cable. The frame rate is lower, and the resulting blurring is a particular problem with sports shows, which is of course all this is for. Then there was a widespread login issue last weekend so I couldn't watch the match I wanted. When I complained that I shouldn't be paying for an unreliable service, NBC Sports refunded my money, but cancelled my account without asking. And now they won't answer my emails. All three matches I might want to watch this weekend are on the app, so I'll have no choice but to buy it all over again. Don't buy if you have any other options.
Great for cycling 4/5
I ponied up the $40 reluctantly to watch Le Tour and am glad I did. Fantastic coverage, mostly great images and commentary, and being able to replay stages commercial free is fantastic. I stuck around for the Vuelta de Espana - first time watching it and I watched every stage. More exciting than Le Tour. Looking forward to more great cycling coverage over the year.
Too many issues to list...basically it's a scam 1/5
Terrible app, constant bugs, super inconsistent, makes me sign in again and again, constantly crashes when streaming to Apple TV, for some reason always uses the Australian or British feed, hello we are in America!!!
Make you pay for a service that does not work! 1/5
Awful! Would give it 0 stars if I could! They make you pay $50 to watch the games and it doesn't work! Lost 20 mins of the game Saturday due to technical errors, which they admitted but refused to provide any refund! If you make people pay for a service - you better get it working #fail
App is super buggy, not worth paying for 1/5
By comcast foresaken
Not to mention this is typical Comcast, sucking every dollar they can out of a market they already dominate; smd.
Reliable (mostly) 4/5
I don't understand where all the hate for this app is coming from. It works for me 99% of the time, although it is annoying it also shows games that the NBC app are needed for. Overall, I'm super pleased with this. I get to catch up on all my premier league needs
This is a pure scam!!!!!!! Theft!!!
Not paying $50 1/5
By Hattori Hanzo Gracie
More money to watch premier league games?!? Why? It's not our fault you pay the EPL millions for the rights.
Absolutely Terrible 1/5
How can NBC do this to us... This is supposed to be a way to charge people that don't have cable, but it really screws over people with a cable provider in to paying an extra 50 bucks. If you get NBC Sports, you should be able to watch the premier league...no ifs ands or buts. Looks like I'll be going back to the free online streaming from other websites. Don't get this App or pay for the service so we can let them know how big of a mistake and scam this is.
I'm already paying $$$ to a cable provider. I didn't stress about not waking at 6:30am to watch BPL because I used to be able to watch them using the NBCS app. Now the suited crooks at NBC are trying to orally juice another $50 out of me! SCAM!! Next time I'll DVR it. 😡
Lazy and Greedy. 1/5
Impressive work NBC. Make existing subscribers pay a second time then download a new app that is badly designed, buggy to activate and delivers a picture that is grainy and poor. Shame.
Don't even download it 1/5
so you're telling me that even though I already pay extra to my cable provider, that now I have to pay more if i want to watch the same games I used to watch on NBC Sports app?... what a joke, i hope this is temporal as I'm now going to delete my NBC Sports app since none of the Premeire Games are found there anymore.
Boooooo... for shame. 1/5
Not happy with this at all. Loved this channel all of last year. Soccer already has an uphill battle in the US, this will knock it back down again. Thanks for selling out NBC.
GREEDY GREEDY GREEDY MONEY GRABBING CROOKS 1/5
Why price gouge us true EPNfootball (not soccer) league fans by introducing a $49 app to watch matches we've ALREADY PAID FOR. The app doesn't even work ! I already pay over $150 per month for access to NBC PROGRAMS on cable via Comcast xfinity. You didn't even tell us about this development. You are a merciless, greedy, ignorant, money-grabbing, bunch of crooks. I've left a "message" with more details on your Facebook page (NBCUniversal). I suggest others do the same. (You won't find an email address guys). I won't be subscribing any more to your programming, so do one NBC. Shove your service where the sun don't shine.
1 more year of this...1 more freaking year you money hungry life sucking stupid freaking company.
Pretty much as bad as Fox Soccer 2 Go or whatever that crap program was 1/5
By Sober Kid
NBC got greedy, they used to air all Premier League games on my sports cable package. Someone had the bright idea to make most of the games only watchable through a crap paid app. They must have seen how well that worked over the years for Fox 🤔. If you're going to make people pay at least let's not have it crash when the game is beginning and I am trying to log in.
Absolute trash 1/5
$50 and it's riddled with glitches and errors. Can't even log in right now; how do I get a refund?
Cycling announcers 3/5
By love the grand tours.
I do not like the NBC sports gold announcers. They babble in and typically do not add much to the race. I would much prefer to have the announcers for NBC sports. Last year the app switched announcers when you reached the point that the regular NBC sports picked up the broadcast. Could you please return to that style of broadcasting? I personally love Phil, Paul, Chris, Bob and Jens. Colorful commentary as well as highlighting historical sites in the grand tours makes for a more enjoyable race.
Greedy Network. Awful App 1/5
Bad enough they are charging $$ (see the other reviews). Now I've spent an hour on attempts to log into the app (turning everything off and on, etc). I HATE this malarky of having to get an activation code EVERY TIME I turn the app on. And even with the activation code, I can't get into the app--just a message about the NBC server.
Try streaming on my phone, and the fascist app and more stalled service, won't open, won't authorize. Finally open app and can't access a game until I authorize location services.
it just keeps getting worse. After 1 hour & 50 minutes, I finally got a game, on my phone. But after just a few seconds, the app wants me to sign up for notifications. It already asked me when I opened the app, but it won't take no for an answer. And oh yeah, the request for notifications blacked out my screen--on all games. I can get audio but no video.
After two hours and repeated attempts to get game thru Apple TV or phone, finally caught the last 20 minutes of Liverpool. But wait! No post-game analysis. i have to switch back to Direct Tv for that--a cumbersome process. Commentary done, and NBCSN is ending Premier League broadcast. I have to go back to app. I open NBCSN Gold, WHICH I'M PAYING $50 FOR, and I'm told I have to go to the regular NBCSN app to see this game.
1 sport, 1 league, broadcast on a single morning, and I'm supposed to switch thru satellite and 2 apps to watch games. Paying twice for it, too--DirecTV access, + NBCSN Gold. None of the 3 access methods will include all the games and the pre- and post-game commentary. On two, I get commercials and on the regular app, those commercials blank out the game. On both NBC apps, I get frequent hang-ups and frozen screens.
The question isn't what's wrong with this picture, it's. . . what's right?
Money grab 1/5
What a scam. Just a money grab
I use to get all the matches with my DirecTv package. Now I have to pay an additional $50 to watch my favorite teams if they are not on tv. This is not right. I am mad and extremely disappointed that you treat your viewers this way. Money is always the bottom line.
I'm enjoying watching the rugby games anytime anyplace.
Premier League Pass 1/5
By kapanga mchombo
Not worth it. I bought this pass so I wouldn't have to buy tv just to watch my games. I get just as many LIMITED games with sling tv.. and now I'm just going to move on to HULU with live. Total waste. Please let me know how to refund my money. Next time make all the games available with the pass.
Don't download 1/5
Comcast are a bunch of money grubbing ******* you will not get another dime from me. I will illegally stream happily it it means you won't get another penny of my money
Poor video quality 2/5
I'm okay with the price, and I really like the ability to watch many of the "less popular" games, but why is the streaming quality so much worse than every other streaming service I use? It's like the product team said, "What's the cheapest stream we can provide that customers will pay for?" I won't purchase this next year if the video and audio quality doesn't improve.
NBC Sports Gold 1/5
By Eddie Hinton's Ghost
As much as I love NBC Sports' coverage of the Premier League, I must admit the new NBC Sports Gold app is incredibly disappointing. I paid for the subscription but logging in and accessing games has been complicated and ineffective. Today in the Liverpool v Burnley match the coverage continually stalled and crashed and then in the second half it would revert to first half coverage. What a real disappointment. Not worth the money paid and it pains me to say that b/c I love that NBC Sports covers the PL so well.
What a letdown 1/5
NBC had been making the premier league so accessible, now it's just a greedy scam. People already pay a lot for their sports packages for this to be included without paying an extra $50. If you have a cable package, you now have to pay an extra $50 for the other games that used to be included, and if you don't, then the app only gives you a limited selection of games.
1 step forward, 2 steps back for soccer coverage in the U.S.
Definitely a SCAM!!! 1/5
By Diesel Jay
It's amazing how there was never a word about NBC Sports App no longer broadcasting Premier Leagues games, but suddenly there's a standalone "subscription required" app?
Hopefully this does horribly!!!!!!
Boycott NBC Sports Gold 1/5
I already pay $170 a month for cable. Now, you want to charge an additional $50 for EPL games I was getting for free?! Are you out of your minds? Come up with a better plan. I'm done. #boycottnbcsportsgold
Rip of NBC 1/5
What a joke this is! We pay for NBCSN on our provider package to watch ALL premier league matches and now they want to come back for a pound of flesh by setting up a new app that we must also pay for to watch the games! Double dipping at the highest!! Are you not already making enough money out of the hard working people who are dedicated to following their favorite sport! Shame on you NBC!! Your a disgrace!!!!!
Money Grab 1/5
An blatant money grab by NBCUni that charges you more to watch a sport that was once growing in this country. I'll take my money elsewhere and watch another league. Thankfully Serie A, Bundesliga, and La Liga are open races this seasons.
Remember that one time we all loved NBC? Not anymore.
Sound doesn't sync, live broadcasts keep going behind 20 minutes 1/5
Was trying to watch the PL games this weekend as the game on NBCSN looked to be a route. During the 2nd half on over 5 different occasions the app reverted back to the 43rd minute of the first half. Unacceptable being that we're forced to pay $50 for the service for this season. Will definitely not be returning next year unless they sort this out.
Awful App!!!!! 1/5
By worst pirchase ever!
This app is awful. I paid for the gold pass and I have yet to be able to watch a game on it. I've written for support assistance numerous times without any joy. I have disputed this charge with my credit card. If i could give negative stars I would.
Can I give a zero star review? 1/5
I pay extra to my cable company to get NBCsports, but now NBC wants me to pay more money to watch games? Are they trying to force people to watch illegal streaming TV? I already have a fire stick and can stream this stuff, but I pay for NBC to do it the right way, and I get repaid by greed and a desire for more money. I would pay more if they offered more, but it's the same thing I already pay for, they just took it away and try to make me pay more for what they took from me. So frustrating!!!
Complete ripoff 1/5
So when I travel to Canada.... my old app still gets EVERY single premier league game for free. Bunch of duechebags at NBC. Stuck watchin Man City vs Watford on cable channel.... 4-0 in the 64th minute. GREAT match you twats. It's STILL on. Your mothers are ashamed of your greed NBC.
Horrible and Pathetic 1/5
It is unbelievably unjust that I have to pay an extra amount of money just to get the games that I had been getting last year through my cable subscription. There is no way that I will do this. Even though it means I'll be missing some games, on principle I will never subscribe to this service. It is an absolutely pathetic attempt by NBC to get more money. I hope they suffer for this.
Just another money grab 1/5
By LFC fan999
This app is just NBCUniversal trying to scam you for more money. Already paid extra for NBCSports with my cable provider and now NBC wants me to pay another $50 for coverage that used to be free. Bravo NBC for making me not want to use any of your services. Watching bootleg streams of premier league games on YouTube is looking much more appealing.
Basically a scam 1/5
Having to pay more on top of the cable bill is ridiculous. You pay for the sports package but then NBC says you don't get all we have to offer without also paying for gold
Can't sign in 1/5
A bad app clearly created to take away from loyal customers. They should be ashamed of themselves
Greed. >:-( 1/5
Are you actually serious!? Games I got last year on the NBC overflow channels, and before that on tape delay (when Fox held the EPL contract) you now want me to pay extra for to watch on my phone?! I already pay NBC extra via the sports package on cable. Outrageous.
What a sham 1/5
Unbelievable that NBC blindsides with a separate pay to watch app. NBCs whole campaign when they acquired rights to the premier league was any game any where. Now I have to pay an extra 50 on top of my sports package to watch these games. If you're a fan of a mid table team like me, stoke city, your hands are tied. There aren't going to be many times that stoke make it on tv so I can watch under my current package. I thought NBC was doing a great thing covering the premier league and other more obscure sports. They have turned all of these niche rights into a money grabbing greed campaign. God forbid I am a fan of soccer and track and field. That's an extra 120 bucks. Ridiculous
A hot mess 1/5
It has taken me over 25mins to create an account and add card. How I want to login and buy a pass for Prem football and cannot - no error code. In the day and age of slick user experience this is a D-.
To the NBC executives - I have used Piano in the past as a paywall and always issues. Might want to rethink this. Basically today I was prepared to spend my $50 and could not.
Contstantly Kicks Me Off 2/5
Literally no other app makes me re log in and go online for confirmation nearly every time on the Apple TV app. I was frustrated enough that I had to pay for games I got for free last season...now this.
Serious issues 1/5
By Me in the Low country
Please fix issues before next game...
Asking for my money back 1/5
This is not good. Four games into the season and we have issues.
