Terrible Casting Capabilities 1/5
Tried to cast to either Chromecast or AppleTV and the functionality is terrible. You cannot fast forward or rewind. It takes ages to connect and ads will appear after every attempt. Very poor, the WatchESPN app is much better and user friendly.
Disconnects often and impossible to reconnect.
Awesome App to get your cycling fix!! 5/5
Love the races it covers as well as the full coverage of the races.. You can't beat the price.. It made cutting the cable cord all that much better. I watch what I want to watch and pay for!!
Completely pathetic. Thanks for nothing.
Commercials stream better than the games or shows 2/5
By Zulu Puppy
Nice to see the recent fixes have made the streaming ads work better, too bad zero thought was put into the viewer's experience. Games and shows freeze and stutter(repeat a few seconds of streaming) more often than before. Painful to watch. Their IT peeps are either morons or are paid to make this app inept.
This app is absolute garbage. It closes all the time on any device I use, will switch coverage to something else at the drop of a hat, and replays rarely work. Don't waste your time.
Please fix EPL commercial glitch 1/5
By Tape Doctor
So I can watch Extratime.
Are you kidding?! Fix AirPlay on this app! It's never consistent!! Adding insult to injury the Apple TV app is worse than the iOS version. No local CSN games?? The only way I've gotten to view my Celtics is if I go to CSNNE.com and stream from there using AirPlay to mirror my Mac. And even that comes in like garbage! Way to treat your customers NBC, Comcast or whatever you call yourselves these day.
Still horrible. The quality of the stream is sad. So many better options. Let's cut to a commercial in the middle of overtime in a hockey game. Just a horrible company who just should do better given how much money they have.
I love EPL and this app gives it. 4/5
If you enjoy watching the English Premier league you will love this app. Watch anyone, playing anywhere, against anybody -- all the games that are being played.
It's okay 3/5
By El Ahorcado
Commercials before the start of ANYTHING.
That's pathetically greedy and super annoying.
App will crash all the time.
Crashing , has a mind of its own 1/5
(Google Chromecast user) The app crashes every time a show goes to commercial. It also jumps to a show that already finished 3 hours ago, even though we are watching live TV. While watching our program, another program will start playing on the same feed. Mostly does not cast from the iPhone app, we constantly have to rely on the iPad app to cast. Worst TV app experience I've ever had. Fix the bugs, fix the problems, fix the programming....when I want to watch soccer, I don't want golf to start playing!!
Doesn't work 1/5
Says we're sorry when trying to watch live tv but it never used to do that. Now it never works no matter what I do
Fix the core experience first 2/5
While I appreciate NBC doing so much to promote the premier league, watching a match on this app is painful. As play builds up, the app crashes. Then upon frantically restarting, I must wait first for a commercial (!!!!!!!) only to have the app come back up to fans cheering after an amazing goal. It's truly painful.
New update makes app even worse 1/5
By NBCSN is the worst
I honestly thought this app couldn't get any worse, but the new update was able to exceed my expectations. Before the app just froze and was a constant annoyance, but now it won't even allow me to play a video. Every time I try to play a video I get an error telling me to re-authenticate even after I am already signed in. I am fairly confident this app is maintained exclusively by unpaid interns. Embarrassing for a company of this size to have their name attached to this joke of an app.
Worst ever 1/5
By Shone boli te tuki
Best streaming app 5/5
By far the best streaming app not named Netflix. WatchESPN could learn a thing or two from them
Doesn't work well but has great programming 2/5
On an iPhone six it crashes every time when I try to use chromecast. Also makes my chromecast unstable so that I cannot use it again until I reset. Also does not work on either of my two computers-often gets stuck on log-in screen. Still love the EPL though so willing to watch it on my cell phone.
Why no zero-star reviews allowed? 1/5
Your average is two stars out of five for good reason. The same things that were wrong two years ago, when I started using this app, are still wrong. The mass sackings I called for obviously haven't happened. Failure. Hang your heads in shame for having the worst video streaming in the industry.
Unreliable at best 2/5
Surprisingly, despite the investment in programming like the Olympics and Premier League soccer, NBC still can't figure out how to keep the app from crashing or freezing - always after you've been forced to watch the commercials, of course. I can't understand why the company tolerates this, since other broadcasters have figured it out.
App Doesn't work for iPhone 7 Plus 1/5
Gotta say, this is pretty crazy. I haven't been able to use the "Live and Upcoming" category without my app crashing. It's been like this since 3 updates ago. NBC's app doesn't work, so I guess I have to delete it. You would think NBC would have fixed this problem, but 3 updates later... doesn't seem like this is an error they want to fix.
Why am I getting a commercial every 5 seconds 1/5
I am literally getting a Lexus commercial 5 seconds after the sports goes live the every few seconds thereafter!
Happy subscriber. 5/5
By Ja-Kachieng' Bongu
Excellent App. Highly recommend it!!!
By Reds Gunner
How funny you should ask for a review after I was just unable to watch anything live because when I go to ATT U-verse to log in; NOTHING COMES UP!! I can get the other cable providers to come up, but not U-verse! And that makes your app virtually useless to me, despite the great content!! So frustrating!
You would think NBC... 1/5
Would be able to maintain a functional app. While it works fine for live events the replay function hasn't worked for weeks and two updates haven't fixed that issue.
Crashy Crashy 👎🏽 1/5
I can't play anything. Try to log into my TWC account and it freezes every time. The ios app is better than the apple TV app as far as pause and rewind functionality goes, so this is highly disappointing.
Frequent Crashes 1/5
Terrible. App was developed by monkeys.
Embarrassing for all involved 1/5
I don't know how people involved with something so poorly built feel ok about their contributions to the world. To say this is buggy would be misleading. If it functions as it supposed to do, one is very surprised. Probably because of budget issues. Oh wait it's a giant multinational behemoth milking profits off their premier league content. So it's either garbage technicians or comically cheap leadership. Either way I'm cancelling the part of my package that sends revenue NBC sports direction. Pathetic.
Live EPL! 5/5
Love streaming live sports, especially EPL games.
NBC, you broke it 2/5
This was the perfect app, the one I measured every other app against. But now I can't watch a complete Premier League game anymore. At half time, at least 6 commercials run and the nothing. Zero content. Silence. No commercial, no game, zip, zero nada. Why did you have to screw this up?!
terrible replays 1/5
By bernie the gooner
Half way through a match and an endless loop of commercials? A bit frustrating. Total crap.
Event replay commercials are buggy 1/5
I try to watch premier league replay games but the commercials are glitching and it never actually plays the game. It just plays commercials the whole time.
Lack of Fidelity 1/5
No consistent replay schedule or transparency in programming. And poor ad sales. And games freezing after half time. Yes, I tried to turn it off and turn it back on. Oh wait, no tech support or customer service either. Bad. Frustrating.
AppleTV app does not work with regional streams 1/5
I am able to watch the Regional CSN streams on the mobile version of the app, but when I try to do the same on the AppleTV app, I get an error message stating that I am not a subscriber....disappointing.
Can't watch 2nd half of Premiere League replays 3/5
Excellent app for watching replays of Premier League matches. I just noticed a big problem: I am unable to watch the second half! After watching in sequence from the opening kick off, it goes into commercials at the half. But then the screen goes black after a lot of commercials. I tried to watch other matches and also scrub directly to the second half but to no avail.
Very frustrating as I am also watching with my 8-yr old son who is an avid soccer player...
Can't sign in! 1/5
Once again, issues signing into Verizon FiOS. Enter username and pw but when you click "login" nothing happens. Please fix!
Always freezes 1/5
The app either freezes during the pregame ads or during the halftime ads. And forget about effective chromecasting.
Good app with few defects 3/5
The app doesn't work with chromecast even though it has a cast option. I had to restart my chromecast 3 to 4 times to make it work. Another bug would be the fullscreen on chrome cast. I do not see the fullscreen on my tv.
Massive headache 1/5
Gives me tons of issues on multiple devices. Such a nuisance that I end up more often than not just streaming sporting events online in lower quality just so I don't have to deal with the hassle and glitches of this app.
COX log-in problem 1/5
Could not sign in with COX. Please fix !!!
Terrible, terrible.... 1/5
Used to be a good app, now randomly cuts into live programming with adverts in the middle of action. Today it switched over the last ten minutes of Spurs-City to the Golf Channel, and by the time I was able to force quit out of the app and get the feed restarted the match was over. Embarrassingly bad and frustrating bugs for a live sports app.
Streaming issues 1/5
By Fire someone
If its the 90th minute of tottenham v man city and the game is tense and tied and then the streaming coverage goes to some golf prank show, i know more than a few thousand ppl who would be rightfully angry. Get your sh!t together nbc. This isnt the first time this interruption has happened at a awful moment. Seriously, fire someone and fix this. You guys are billion dollar jokers
Impressive incompetence 1/5
If you love it when the important Premier League game you're watching is inexplicably switched over to golf, you've come to the right place!
Changing programs 1/5
Was watching the Tottenham Manchester city game and then it switched to golf with 6 minutes left in the game that was tied 2-2!!!!! What is wrong with you NBC?!? No one wants to watch golf you idiots
Five star 5/5
Alert me does not work 2/5
Cannot get app "alert me" function to work. Pop up pops up but will not accept input.
Otherwise app occupies space on phone well
Worst Live Streaming App on the Planet 1/5
Many crashes, poor streaming quality. Breaks EVERY TIME IT'S UPDATED. Take a lesson from ESPN why don't you?
Update problem 1/5
Phone auto updated on 19 Jan. I have Verizon Fios as provider. All account info has been verified to be valid with Verizon. After update I had to login to Verizon again and the app didn't let me get passed the enter button for entering the pin. I could enter login and pin and press enter but it would take no action. There is some disconnect with the link with the app and Verizon. Please fix ASAP. Missed the EPL games this morning because of this error.
Too many problems to really enjoy 1/5
By Esquire ski
This app has gone from freezing more often that any sports tv app, to constantly requiring me to sign back in and after the most recent update won't let me sign in. Constantly frustrated viewing enjoyment
Unable to login. 1/5
By Art Culley
After latest update on iPhone, app is stuck when I attempt to log in with my tv provider. I've force closed and reinstalled the app several times. Also, replay functions intermittently. Please fix soonest.
Won't sign me in 1/5
Put in credentials, loading icon for half a second, nothing happens. Nice work, clowns.
