Attempting to watch a replay of the F1 race. Every time it breaks to where commercials would be, the app crashes and closes. This has been happening for a while now, but it usually only happens once or twice. It keeps happening and needs to be addressed.
Very annoying 1/5
Tried to watch last two laps of Formula1 because it ran longer than expected. Had 2 laps to watch finish, nbc forced 8 commercials. Yes 8 commercials, makes you dislike each advertiser that forced you to watch. Microsoft cloud big data, same advert, 4 times and Chevy same ad x2. So to watch 3 minutes of footage took 10mins to get to ??? Forced watching, so advertisers get given a bad image as does the app
Trying to warch the F1 replay. App keeps crashing.
This app is crap, so is NBC live coverage of sports events. It shows some sports coverage to be live when actually it isn't.
You are there product they sell 1/5
By Jacob news
First you pay them for internet. Then you pay them for cable. Then you pay them a $5 surcharge for "regional sports network fee" for a regional sports network which they own. Then you watch commercials in the content . Then they show commercials when you start the app. Then more commercials when you select something to play, and then always-on banner ads which reduce the amount of screen available to the content. I want to get of Mr. Roberts Wild Ride.
Fast forward/search is unusable 2/5
By Ts and Cs
I use this app on my Apple TV. It works fine for me, the video quality is great with no drop outs, but unless I'm watching something live the app is unusable. You cannot fast forward through commercials - not a huge surprise, but this will eventually drive customers away. The real issue is any time you fast forward the actual program, you're forced to watch several commercials, even though you have no idea where in the program you jumped to (unless you memorized the exact time you wanted to jump to). If you missed the place you wanted and need to jump back 20 seconds? Four more commercials. Only went half way to where you wanted to go? Tough beans, four more commercials (the SAME commercials every single time...by the way). It takes me at least 10 minutes to find the place I'm looking for. I'm not that patient! Do the executives that mandate these horrendous policies ever try to use their own app?! Keep this kind of user experience and you'll become the dinosaur you're destined to be even quicker.
I wish I didnt have to use this app 1/5
I really hate that NBC controls major hockey games and all of F1. They provide awful coverage and have this terrible app that never seems to work. Unfortunately, I have to try and use it because my favorite sports are broadcasted through NBC. Maybe one day it wont prevent me from watching games, for example showing an 'Oops, something went wrong' message, or wont crash all the time.
Fails on iPad Pro No Longer 5/5
By Avanti II
Currently working flawlessly.
Good but could be better 4/5
It works most of the time
Works great, but no "resume or start from beginning" option 4/5
The quality of the program viewing is great. Just wish it provided a replay function to see missed programs.
App Crash and constant ads are annoying 2/5
They need to do a better job.
Stop announcing results in notifications 1/5
Have this app to know when F1 is on, and to occasionally watch when I'm away from home. Being on the US West Coast, many qualifying sessions and races occur in the wee hours of the night, which I record to watch later. But when you TELL me who won/qualified pole, I really have no reason to sit through and watch the entirety of a session when I know the answer; I'll just get relevant highlights elsewhere. Yeah, I can turn off notifications, but now the app is generally useless for me as a reminder.
Epic Fail 2/5
USATF Track and Field Nationals - epic fail by broadcast team. At the beginning of the 400m final on 6/24/2017 they introduced Blake Leeper and added that he made the final and would attempt to brake Oscar Pistorius' World Record for a double amputee. The camera crew apparently knew the record was broken at the end of the race as Leeper was framed by the camera at the end of the race, yet the broadcast crew said nothing. This is significant because:
1. Leeper is the first American double amputee to make a final outside of the Special Olympics.
2. It appeared your Broadcast team was not prepared.
3. This accomplishment erases a convicted murderer from the track and field record books making Leeper a hero on a very large scale.
This needs to be corrected. There are I believe two more airings of the Championships so the broadcast team has plenty of time to make mention of the new record and acknowledge their mistake.
BTW - I had not even heard of Leeper before yesterday, but as a track and field fan know the significance of this accomplishment.
Needs widescreen 1/5
Please at the functionality that will output the image to widescreen when screen casting from an iPad to the tv.
Come on FIX IT ALREADY 1/5
Every update makes this app worse. At some point it would be nice if they fixed all the crashing issues. Every commercial break the app crashes. IF you can catch it and fast forward to skip the commercials it will keep working but you have to catch it just right. Plus with every update it signs you out and you end up having to re connect it with your TV account.
Easy to use 5/5
An easy to use app!
The app isn't work 1/5
I downloaded the app and I am trying to launch and nothing happened, I delete the app again and download again and do the same. Can you fix the issue problem please, thx
I can't watch my teams while I am out of town! Biggest reason why I got this app!!
Saturation commercials 4/5
By WFMT fan
Like the channel. Don't like repeat of the same commercials over and over again. Will boy cut companies responsible
Full screen, "opening credit" ads? It takes 15 seconds before you can start to use the app. At this point, though, I'm not surprised. Older reviews below.
Your coverage of the games could have easily been superb. Instead, it was overrun by ads despite the fact that an expensive cable subscription was necessary to fully access the content. Below is my original review.
Speaking about Olympic coverage only - We shouldn't have to watch an ad nearly every time we switch streams, especially when you consider how much we pay for the requisite TV subscription. It's particularly frustrating when the stream eventually reports that coverage is over. Worse, either NBC wants it this way or their software developers are working without a plan. A few more lines of code would make this a decent balance of ads versus content but, as is, you should rename the "Live and Upcoming" tab to "Live and Upcoming Clickbait".
Would otherwise love the app and coverage. Have had zero technical issues so far.
The 1000+ bad reviews a day should be a wake up call, if your brand means anything at all to you.
Oh, and I am well aware that location services are off...
Needs improvements 2/5
AirPlay does not work when casting to Apple TV 3. Crashes sometimes. And doesn't spin to landscape full screen.
Otherwise great content.
I am supposed to be able to stream Phillies as part of my tv subscription... does not work and no one from NBC or Fios has helped at all.
This app rarely works. It crashes constantly and won't load content. I haven't kept any actual numbers but I would estimate (very, very conservatively) it works MAYBE 20% of the time I try to use it.
Crashes a lot... 2/5
Downloaded this app to watch the hometown team. I've had this for a couple months now and it always has a hard time buffering/loading the game. It's even worse on airplay. Hopefully they get some things patched. It definitely needs some help.
America's Cup coverage 4/5
I have been watching the America's cup on the app. Great coverage and very good streaming. Yea
Worst piece of crap app!! Nothing but lag time. Crashes, crashes, crashes. Then asks for your credentials again. Simply the worst!!!!
America's Cup 5/5
The coverage for the races is FANTASTIC!!! Excellent facts and explanations. I am really enjoying each race.
SNY NOT WORKING w/App (Xfinity/Comcast) 1/5
While I've been very happy to watch NY Rangers games w/ the app, I get a "not a subscriber" message, trying to watch the Mets SNY broadcast using this app.
The sad part is, the app works fine on my Roku.
Didn't work for the Stanley Cup Final games 3/5
I've never had a problem with the app until the Stanley cup finals. No games worked. I tried to delete and install again... nothing. The finals lasted for a couple weeks. Seems like plenty of time to address and solve a problem to me.
Supremely unsatisfied 1/5
I got this app for one purpose, to watch my hometown team play in their first Stanley Cup Finals while I was deployed overseas. No cable over here that has NBC but we have wifi so that should work right? That's the whole point of the app is to be able to watch it when and where you can't get to a tv. Well when I logged in I kept trying to watch the live stream and only ever got a message saying "Oops, something went wrong. Try restarting the app." I get that it's the Stanley Cup and there's a lot of traffic, but you should have taken that into account NBC.
Poor quality 1/5
The streaming services of this app are just simply terrible. There is a constant buffer and choppiness to the video that becomes aggravating. I do not have these issues with other streaming apps.
Poor stream 1/5
By Sean Milburn
Worst streaming app I have ever used. It was never live, the game managed to get over 3 minutes behind, and would not catch up
Total crap 1/5
By Duck you!
Can't get it and I subscribed. Don't subscribe to this channel
Hard to rate when it doesn't work 1/5
Shows a commercial, then freezes and won't show the game. Restart the app, same thing. Restart the phone, same thing.
Still the worst! 1/5
How many times can one app crash during the third period of a hockey game? This seems to be the question this app is meant to answer. But at least I'm forced to watch the trailer for The Mummy over and over again.
Crash and lag 2/5
By Canus Miler
I love to use the app especially during the premier league season but it constantly is lagging and crashing mostly due to the two or three ads that need to be unnecessarily animated and change every 2 minutes.
Horrible app 1/5
This app used to be good. Now it never works. Worst app ever
Piss poor 1/5
By Moose the great
If I wanted to see Tom Cruise fight a mummy 20million times during the middle of the most important hockey game cuz the app crashed, i would kill Myself. Because this app is hell, and the aforementioned description is my hell. Crashes, pauses, randomly plays a commercial during a stream.
Piss poor app. 0 of 5
Would not recommend.
Downloaded to watch Stanley cup and it skips back and forth about 25 seconds every 5 minutes or so...get it together
Long load times 1/5
And half the time I try to watch the cup final on the app it says it's blacked out. Garbage, but I expect no less from NBC.
this app is sooo unstable 😒
By Bad app, terrible
This app is only good when you are trying to watch a sporting event that few people want to watch. I only have this app for one reason to watch the Stanley cup TONIGHT, and it won't even load at all. Delete this app and stream through Reddit!!!
Skips too much 1/5
Trying to watch hockey and it's skipping back and forth all the time. One second there will be 10:50 left to play then 9:30 for a moment or two then it jumps back to 10:25 and etc. Makes it difficult to follow the game
Comically bad 1/5
I'm not sure where to start. Random "blackout" errors for events far from my region, constant crashes, the incessant ads, ...
For every minute of content I've actually been able to watch on this app I've spent 2 minutes watching commercials and reloading the app
Formula 1 5/5
Wow I see a lot of negative comments on here about the app crashing and streaming problems. I bet most of their issues are with their connection because I have this app to watch F1 coverage. Sometimes I have to watch the races live or go back and watch qualifying but it's amazing. Especially all the extra F1 coverage videos. F1 is what I use the app for and some NASCAR and it's not without some bugs but I am very impressed!
This thing loves to crash
This app is incredibly frustrating 1/5
I click on choices and get an error message
OOPS – something happened. Restart the application. It has happened on several shows I have attempted to watch.
There is no excuse.
No Chromecast support 2/5
Pretty big feature not in there
Hope you don't like watching local NBC Sports events 1/5
I downloaded this app to watch F1 and it wouldn't let me because it was on the local NBC station. Why it advertises that you can watch it on the app just to deny you when you're away from home is beyond me. Garbage.
Disappointing delivery 2/5
By Rw tri/runner
Glad for the content, but too often the app drags or fails to load. Clean this up!
