It crashes, doesn’t show any content. Worst App ever.
Gave this one star because you can’t go any lower. The app is slow and glitchy. Live games and replays constantly crash multiple times. All this for the lovely subscription rate of $50!
Don't get this app! Completely ridiculous! 1/5
We're paying for all these channels and yesterday, NBC sports shows 1 premier league game out of 6 played simultaneously. Disgraceful.
I did not purchase a subscription, though from what I've heard from friends, the app is crap. I literally just downloaded this app so I could express my frustration.
I can easily find a free online stream to watch Premier League matches but I'm actually happier supporting my local pub each time NBC decides to broadcast my team's games on NBC gold only.
Greed looks ugly on you, NBC.
Paid extra on my cable subscriber to watch all the Prem matches, and they eventually went to NBC Sports. This season, they made us purchase a $50 Ap that doesn’t unlock the matches. I paid for the Ap, and six weeks later, the matches are all locked again. When support was emailed, they claim that the $50 was never paid. Horrible way to treat subscribers.
This app stinks. Don’t buy!!! 1/5
EPL fan here. I pay extra money every month to my cable provider for the additional sports programming channels (NBC Sports in particular) to watch Premier League soccer. Now in an idiotic move the geniuses at NBC Sports freely choose to televise fewer games each weekend, (could watch them all last year) and now you must pay $50 more to stream the games they choose NOT to televise on this crappy app. Nice to see the NBC value prop is “We promise to deliver a lot less for much more $”. Is anyone at the Premier League paying attention to what NBC is doing to their brand in the US??
Is this for real? 1/5
I paid to watch Liverpool FC games. I cannot believe a human being developed this app. It’s an absolute abomination . I try not to go on the illegal sites but at least they make an effort to provide decent service. NBC , you deserve all the expletives in the world . They are thieves. If I could give a rating of zero, I would have. I didn’t read these reviews before buying as I was desperate to watch a game and realized I could not access it on the original app and was redirected to this abomination .
By Backto General
NBC power tripping on the rights to broadcast Premier League stateside. The fact they've move most matches to this trash platform that requires a $50 subscription is just pure greed. I hope their ratings keeps going down. I'm disgusted
Worked after installation issues 3/5
Would not install for about 15 minutes after purchasing.
Stream was fine. Good quality of both video and audio.
However ability to mirror to apple TV does not work! This is a big drawback. Also could not find the apple TV app on apple TV..
Fantastic (Review edited after 3 weeks) 5/5
By Puru Pathak
Credit to NBC for contacting the customers personally and getting all the issues rectified.
Works perfectly now.
Absolutely Pathetic Website. A completely useless rip off 1/5
Stay away or burn $50.
Wish I could rate the app with no stars.
This service simply doesn’t work. You pay premium to watch your team when you’re on the go and the site doesn’t recognize you that you have already paid.
Stay away and trash NBCSN Gold at every turn, in fields, valleys, strip malls, and dog show.
Greedy NBC 1/5
I didn't even pay for this app however I pay extra for the sports package thru cable specifically to watch premier league & NBC has the audacity to charge 50$ for what was supplied by spectrum. Greedy corporation.
Don’t Waste Your Money 1/5
NBC should be ashamed of itself. Charging consumers for content that used to be free is bad enough, but doing so via such a poorly designed app is simply unforgivable. This app doesn’t even work as well as the free NBC Sports app, which was nothing to write home about in the first place. I’ve seen higher quality video on pirated, third-party streams.
By Lasher 59
Watched all the Premier League games I wanted last year. This year with NBC Gold it is impossible to watch any. Whether it’s not recognizing your Comcast password. Or I am not a robot screen after screen.
They won’t let you watch a one. Thanks for nothing!
Nov 18, 3018-still GARBAGE, do not buy 1/5
Won't do anything. This is junk. Hopefully MasterCard will bail me out of this regretful purchase.
This app is terrible 1/5
Constantly and I mean constantly disconnects. Not my connections this app is just a waste of $50 for NBC.
They just want more and more money. The premier league is starting to get attention here in the US, and know they want to charge us extra. It is sad to see corporations that are making billions still trying to screw us over even more.
Who really cares? 1/5
If zeros stars were an option, I would have selected it. I too pay a lot to watch all my matches on Directv...and I’m wholly disappointed they developed this money squeezing app for matches I’ve been watching regularly over the last three year. ...but who is really listening? This app has over 700 responses with the majority of people venting about this horrible revenue generating venture; yet they’ve not responded to the outspoken negative consensus about this application. Nice to know you actually care about your viewers NBC...do something about this!
Goodbye NBC 1/5
I will not watch your channel if my team isn’t playing, what you did this year is a disgrace. People already pay a hefty price for cable, last year we could watch any game, this year we have to pay? No thanks, goodbye.
Unfortunate, disappointing 1/5
NBC you don’t need more of our money, so why do this? This is a very disappointing development. Adding the extra pay wall to an already expensive cable subscription is unnecessary. Should be included for subscribers to cable packages and an extra payable service for folks wanting to watch it independent of a cable/satellite package.
Bad coding for Apple TV logon 1/5
You can’t logon via the app using Apple TV
It’s $$$ to watch fix the app
Hey Apple how come this app got thru QA
Terrible performance 1/5
glitchy and almost unusable app. Works about 25% of the time. Content may play but then within a few minutes I’ll get an unauthorized user pop up and have to sign out and sign back in. Also, It doesn’t remember where I left off if I have to stop content and come back to it later. For the money you can do better.
By Lover to hater
These guys (NBC) are daylight robbers and are legally authorized to do so. I already pay $130/month on cable to have all NBC network and now that’s not enough for these vampires and want us to pay more... what a shame
Constantly buffers 1/5
By Vish Chidambaram
I get 25mbps download speed but apparently that is not enough for this app. Very poor picture quality, constant buffering, is the experience on when viewed using the Amazon fire stick.
Forget you just listening to audio feeds! 1/5
By Walking Scott
Loved this last I'm paying as part of my dish! Now NBC screwing paying customers. Go ahead I'll listen to the live matches via audio feeds not wasting my time with more money grabs!!!!
Expensive disappointment. 1/5
Clunky, buggy, no refunds. Don’t waste your money. Twitter has better coverage.
Where’s the fix? 1/5
Buffering rate still terrible since the last update. It’s been a couple of weeks so I guess NBC Sports doesn’t care about its customers.
Keep adding different layers to this membership. NBC sports was just that. Pretty soon there will be gold, silver, bronze, and then what palladium for the really poor people? Get out of here with this BS crap. Just like all the other channels. My tv bill will be $500 at the end of the month just to watch all the soccer games I want. So dumb.
A complaint 1/5
I paid for a Rugby pass.I was unable to watch the first 3 games due to technical problems admitted to by NBC.I asked for a refund & after many emails received $10.Then with no request or permission from me NBC cancelled my sub.I have been unable to get NBC to allow me to buy a prorated sub. to resume watching rugby with a NBC sports gold Rugby Pass.My emails are shunted into cyberspace.I refuse to pay a full sub for a Pass when half the rugby season has gone.A very poor show & NBC have lost a customer & I the rugby season.
Worst app ever 1/5
I pay a lot of money for my cable every month which allows me to watch arsenal on the NBC app... an app that NEVER CONNECTS TO MY CHROMECAST SO I HAVE TO WACTH ON MY PHONE! But now I have to pay 50 more to watch arsenal on my off days if I can’t watch it live. For an app that DOESNT WORK! I can’t log in because it says it can’t connect to the captcha site, I can’t cast it to Chromecast because it won’t connect if I do get to log in and it won’t load just a circle or a box in the middle and never ANY VIDEO. 50 dollars down the drain. I WANT A REFUND. I hate you nbc sports.
Works great 5/5
I have the year subscription for everything Track & Field and never had a problem with it. Love it!
They want More $$$$$$$ 1/5
Another app we have to pay for. You can keep it.
Rip off 1/5
This is such a fraud. I thought FOX SPORTS was the worst. Well i was dead wrong. NBC ARE A BUNCH OF THIEVES
To be able to watch my team i had to get the sport (soccer) package with my cable provider for an extra monthly fee. Now To my surprise today the game was only avalaible on NBC GOLD. I was forced to pay a $50 subscription. A team that's always been on TV. And for that price it should be 4k UHD. Shame on you NBC.
Bad in every respect ... DO NO BUY THIS SUBSCRIPTION! 1/5
App is poorly designed, clunky and slow!
Picture quality when using Apple TV on a large screen was like watching on an aerial TV ... not close to HD!
Bait and switch ... pay extra for NBCSN to see all the EPL games, and then discover that was once included with NBCSN is no longer included.
Fine print says that subscription will renew automatically with no opportunity to opt out ... cancelling credit card before renewal!
Junk Product 1/5
By EPL Unwatchable
Does not work. This app averages 1 star with over 600 reviews. You would think it would be fixed. Absolute garbage.
Worked okay today - 28 Oct 2017 4/5
By Tape Doctor
Bought finally to watch West Ham because they are on there all the time. Downloaded app, signed in, and hooked to AppleTV. Good signal, little lag, and full screen from iPad mini with iOS 10.3.1. Hate the business concept but for a smaller club, it worked well for me.
The title says it all.
Already paid for cable, now I have to pay extra for something that I already paid for. Garbage, plain and simple. I hope you guys get enough 1-stars that you wake up and adjust your business approach, because this is not going to work in the long run. Good luck.
Complete crap 1/5
Paid $50 for this and I get a message saying playback is restricted when I try to watch a replay of a game that already finished. I PAID for this, why is it restricted? Horrendous service and only customer support is through email. Horrible.
This a such a joke. 1/5
I can’t believe it that they just suddenly change it so I cannot stream games on the go anymore without shelling out $50. No way in hell im giving them money so back to illegal streams for me.
What a waste of time.
simply a disaster. 1/5
By max Dubai
they stole 50 bucks from me and don't have the decency to respond to an email.
The worst 1/5
By Assassin 150
Sort it out now NBC! 1/5
By Southbay Gooner
Been a subscriber since they won Premier a League contract and watched every Arsenal game. Now forced to use this app and I can’t even login to the app as it does not recognize my email. Can’t even phone someone to sort out. Very poor form and shitr way to treat all your loyal customers.
NBCGold Diggers 1/5
By Felix the Chat
Greedy NBC! And on top of it terrible quality!
Do Not Waste Your Money 1/5
If only it were possible to rate with no stars. I should have heeded the advice not to download the app and pay for a subscription.
The app simply does not work on iOS 11. You can’t even subscribe to the content from the app - you have to do it from a browser. And that won’t work on the iPhone because you can’t fill in the fields correctly due to a bad web UI experience.
Once you get past the sign up process, you will find that the live feed gives you audio but no video. Something everyone else complained of, but I thought “nah - must be OK”. I was so wrong.
In addition your subscription is on “auto renew” from NBC - so be wary of that scam too.
How this app got past Apples App Store review when it simply doesn’t work is a mystery. How a company can promote such a piece of crap is no surprise given the state of their industry.
Sadly NBC is on the path to milking every last dollar out of its customers while it can as it’s cable business does a long overdue death spiral.
The sooner the US TV cable and satellite industry disappears into oblivion the better off the consumer will be.
Bottom line - do not waste your money. Sit out the one or two games you are missing and use your hard earned money some place else.
How many apps does NBC Sports need? 1/5
Too many. Now they’ve scaled back the coverage on their main sports app so they can squeeze more money out of fans. No, my answer is no. I’ve gotten pretty sick of every single company collecting a subscription fee off of me so I can keep watching the same things as I used to... NBC just happens to be the one that crossed the final line.
Go F#¢k yourselves NBC... go F#¢k yourselves in the worst way that you can devise. We deserve better than what you offer us.
Deserves ZERO stars 1/5
This app is trying to increase NBC’s profits by strong arming you into paying an additional $50 to watch Premiere League games that they originally promised would be available every week on their family of channels. Now, they have gone back on their promise and expect you to pay an up charge beyond your current TV provider. Not to mention the streaming quality is sub par. Don’t waste your money on this scam.

So the English Premier League package I bought on DirecTV doesn’t include games you don’t air on NBC or any of your cable nets? And you don’t air Arsenal v. Swansea but find space for a rugby match with two teams nobody know or cares about? Then it’s clear that your programming folks don’t know Arsenal are a top draw globally? If so, your people should go back to programming sitcoms since you sure don’t know soccer. PS your app is rubbish.
Shame on you NBC! 1/5
Do not buy this app. You spend $50 for something that used to be free, and the quality is now worse. If NBC sports really cared about its customers, they would scrap this terrible app and put all the content back in the NBC sports app. Shame on you money grubbing wh....
You have to be kidding 1/5
Fifty bucks? Forget it.
