Edit #2: I'm back again to reiterate...I can't even find my cable provider to authenticate this time! The app still crashes regularly with restarts of my iOS devices, shows me endless, repetitive, inferior ad breaks (when compared to the cable broadcasts) and if I had ANY alternative in North America, I would gladly pay for it! Thanks NBC!
Edit: New version is even worse...now loses the stream on every ad break, and I can't seek to the time I need because I hit an ad break and then I need to seek...
I'll echo what must be most reviews: frequent loss of credentials for cable provider, forced to have an ad on screen constantly, if you tap the ad by accident the stream is interrupted and forces a reset from the start, frequent poor streaming performance...I'm happy that it is possible to somehow get video over the Internet from NBC properties, but I am back to planning to be in front of a TV whenever I can.
Great for ads, horrible for fans 1/5
What a mess of an app. NBC Sports on all platforms is an advertisement delivery service first and foremost, with a far distant second is to play sports. This app perfectly sums up why fans look elsewhere for the content that they seek.
Love it. F1, BPL soccer 5/5
Always a place to watch live or catch up!!
Chromecast is horrible 1/5
By chammer time
Connection constantly disconnects. Sound goes in and out as well. Needs improvement for sure!
Extremely unstable 1/5
By An inn
The app crashes nearly every time (90+%) I attempt to view the "live and upcoming" listing. Makes the app nearly worthless, since the only live sports I can watch are the ones that are featured on the opening page
Picture In Picture support PLEASE 3/5
By Techdude Z
Picture In Picture support for supported iPads PLEASE
iPad Air iPad mini 2,3,4 iPad Pro 9.7 inch iPad Pro 12.9 inch and the new bulkier iPad Apple just introduced today I believe are the supported models for Picture In Picture
Great app, but Chromecast support needs to be improved.
Pretty terrible streaming experience 1/5
App repeatedly crashes when streaming to Apple TV. No search feature. UX is rough.
Chromecast playback is unusable, ads constantly crash app 1/5
So bad, have to restart the app and stream almost every commercial break
By Mr Y.
While I signed-in with my FIOS credentials, this app block all streams of NBA games (even local).
Latest March 2017 update does not solve any problem.
Just horrible software.
This is the app for you 1/5
If you like to watch a black buffer screen instead of the sport you want this is definitely the app for you. Every single time I download this app, yes I'm a subscriber, I am never able to watch what I intend to. Garbage.
EPL Replays = COMPLETE GARBAGE 1/5
By Furious EPL Fan
It took a World Cup for ESPN to figure this out, but the NBC Sports app seems to have gone in the complete opposite direction. Why would you show the final score for a game on the same screen as the replay? If I'm watching a replay, why the f*ck would I want the final score right there while I'm watching it?! This app is a complete waste of time, and ruins games while it's wasting your time, so you might just be better off trying to find a bar. At least I don't pay for NBC Sports... oh, wait... I do.
Everytime I hit the live it shuts down the app
By Xxx pics on mines
Enough with the dumb adds...and the stupid app has too many bugs ..eff that ...0 stars if I could
I like the app. Have everything I need . I don't really know why so many people are complaining
Works for me 5/5
By Boss Ruten
Good stuff mane
Bode Miller Rocks 5/5
I have been really enjoying your coverage of FIS World Cup DH Skiing, it's been my favorite show on TV! In no small part it is due to the narration of the sport by Bode Miller. I have been a skier for over 50 years and really appreciate his depth of knowledge of the sport....from equipment to snow conditions, types of courses, types of skiers, their skills and weaknesses... and you know he has been there. But he has also stayed current and kept up on ALL the competitors, their story and their potential. I encourage NBC Sports to continue their coverage of FIS skiing, DH and Nordic, you are doing an excellent job.

Loud commercials so F$&@ING annoying! 1/5
Whoever the developers are of this app are complete hand jobs! Make the volumes of your shows and commercials the same, you(developers) can't tell me that's how you would have it in your personal use, why would you make it like that.
Poorly Developed 1/5
By Logan 1783957
I don't typically write reviews, but this app is just so bad that I feel the need to express my disappointment. I use this app the watch EPL games and cast them with chromecast to my tv. The casting functionality is the worst I've seen anywhere: the picture doesn't scale properly to fit my screen, "ghost" images randomly appear through various parts of the picture, and the feed will stutter or cut out completely, requiring you to relaunch the video. Other apps work perfectly well (cbs sports, fox sports, watch espn are all great) so I'm convinced the issue isn't hardware. With the amount of money NBC shells out to host EPL games on their network you'd really hope they would put some more money into development of this app. Compared to others, this is garbage.
NBC Sports 5/5
By jah fitz
I love this app because it allows me to follow my favorite team Chelsea. Growing up in Jamaica, I always love English football, my dad played the English pool so it was only natural that I became a fan. Thanks to this app I get to watch the beautiful game.
Worked before, now I get an error message when I try and watch a match 1/5
This is not working!!!!
Let's go Caps!!!! 5/5
App meets my needs! Working on the road a great deal. Get to keep up with the Washington Capitals. All I use it with and have never had a problem.
It's okay 3/5
It keeps crashing and freezing fix this problem like to see women gymnastics in rio ok the rio games are over now no one wants to see replays we know how won but like to see figure skating and like to have a icenetwork app needs to have live figure skating
Good but glitches 4/5
Convenient app and I enjoy using the casting feature for my chrome cast. I've noticed some minor glitches but overall things work pretty well
Great deal 5/5
Love all the races that are now available!
Just horrible 1/5
Can't even watch my regional game. Location services are awful and off. Don't waste your time with this garbage app.
Replay option crashes the app. 1/5
By 80's Weren't So Bad
Amazing. When it was NBC-SN app, it worked. But they renamed it to NBC Sports and now it doesn't.
Lets me watch anywhere 5/5
By The Shu57
I love being able to watch F1 wherever I am in fact at home the app performs better than my tv with the cable box hard wired to it!
This app is great for Cycling, but... 4/5
This app is great for cycling coverage. But, I wish for two things: (1) in country commentators who could add local color to the commentary; (2) FIS coverage during the winter months. I refuse to spend an extra $60 per month for a cable package that includes universal TV. But I would spend an extra $20 to add an FIS skiing option to NBC Sports Gold.
So promising and so disappointing! 1/5
It's great than NBC have an app to let you watch their excellent content but what a disappointing app this is. On the AppleTV says that you can fast forward but I've never got it to work. Rewind is extremely clunky and hard to use.
Go back to try and cancel a selection/action and you return to the menu and have to start your show from the beginning again. That's right it doesn't remember where you were in the show.
We just watched Man City vs Sunderland and had to sit through extends minutes of 'Coverage will resume shortly'. We would have been fine with ads but if you don't have ads then how about cutting out the gap?
I tried to use the app to watch the Olympics but the experience was so uneven that I eventually gave up. Some sports had live coverage with no commentary and every second of the game including every excruciating second of the preparations.
We've been away from home relying on our AppleTV to keep up with shows and the NBC apps are amongst the worst. A great idea but still needs some work.
Ran out of space on our Apple TV and realized that NBCSports app is at least 10x times bigger than apps that are able to resume and remember where we were at. Useless!
Downgrading my rating to 1 after it lost my place during Liverpool vs Burnley when I paused it at half time. It was a replay game. Don't mind watching the ads but should be able to resume!!!!!!
Awesome entertainment 5/5
By Anil Panguluri
Best App for live streaming. Almost 0% problem in streaming
Great stuff!! Saving me a ton of money on not buying a cable package that has 57 channels I would never watch. Would love all video to be available like this (HINT! Make F1 like this and/or Universal Sports like this) and I'm buying the life subscription.
Some minor quirks, freezes every now and then .... those bugs you can work out.
Can't trust this app to have the epl games you had to wait to watch 1/5
By Blurry screen
To many times I have work and I come home to watch my clubs epl games and they don't have the replay. The biggest disappointment you can't rely on this app if you have to watch a game later.
App Crash 3/5
App crashes when you try to view the "Live and Upcoming" tab.
The Update Broke the App! 1/5
I used this app to watch EPL Soccer for years! LOVED IT! Now, however, I can't watch anything! When I click on the soccer game that I want to watch, I get a message, "We're sorry! Need to re-authenticate". There is no screen with a link to my service provider. Up in the top right is a link to my service provider, and I have logged in to it. So, the app should "know" who my provider is. I haven't been able to use the app for a month. Going to delete it.
This app is never stable always crashing. You can never watch without it freezing.
Hope it Continues 4/5
By Big D 64
The content is a 5 and the performance of the app is a 4 so far! Not many crashes so far and I hope that continues..
No update 4 March Madness 3/5
If not for that, it would be a 4* app at least
Can it better please? 2/5
First off, I have this app for my iPhone AND my AppleTV. And for location reference I live in California in the Bay Area. I'm not sure what happened to the app on the iPhone, but I used to be able to stream the Sharks games from my phone to my tv. Can't do that. ALSO, the AppleTV app doesn't carry all the games? Why not? I get all the games on my phone, but not my tv. I have DirectTV so it's not an issue with a provider. This app is nice but disappointing. Fix the ability to stream from my phone to my tv but more importantly fix the AppleTV app so I can watch my favorite team when they are on.
Frustrating but still addictive 4/5
So many problems to watch the content. Hard to rate this any higher
That was my impression for last year when I struggled to give three stars ; while there are still lapses , the coverage is more consistent.
Local NHL broadcast broken 1/5
For weeks now, local nhl games,have been incorrectly blocked out. Streaming CSN-MA caps games is the only reason I downloaded this app.
Love it! 5/5
Do you remember the days when you had to use Google to try to find some pirate feed of a cycling race? No more! I love the fact that I can watch so many great races (and replays of them) for such a cheap price with some quality commentating. Matt Keenan does a fantastic job, and I love having Phil and Paul at my fingertips. The app has continued to improve, and I've had no issues with the current version.
worst app ever
By Roman Loya
Everything about it is amazing! There are no sports that are missing! Service is great, but the app is pretty complicated. Would be nice if it was simplified. Love the service provider sign-in method. So far it's pretty good, but there are a few weak spots.
Freezes during commercials 1/5
App freezes or crashes whenever there is a commercial. Plus if you are connected with Chromecast when this happens the app stays tethered to Chromecast but there is no way to stop casting the frozen page. You have to unplug Chromecast to restart it. Totally weak.
Kept asking for a review 3/5
Here ya go
Best app for cycling! 5/5
Can't beat this for watching pro cycling. Worth every penny!
Cycling galore 5/5
Great way to watch the bigger races.
By Don't download this awful game
Worked for about a week now I can't sign in and when I do hit my provider the app crashes every time don't bother with this garbage
