Great working app 5/5
I've never had any issues with the app. I watch shows uninterrupted
Used to love this app. 1/5
In the past month something has changed. It takes a full minute to load the screen, and then another minute to be able to navigate. Please undo whatever you did to make using this unbearable. Using an iPad.
Great app 5/5
Works great on iPad air2. A few commercials but not too bad. Allows you to pick up where you left off. I have a dish subscription so no cost. It doesn't force you to set up a separate subscription like some other tv channel apps which would be a deal breaker for me. Really a great app.
No working chromecast support 2/5
App and sign in work just fine, but when it comes to casting a show, the NBC app will connect to the tv, but it can never stream any content. Awful app
The app used work decently 1/5
Over the last 6 months this app performance has continued to decline. Anymore I can rarely get a show to load and run. The homepage takes 5 minutes to load, if at all. Casting takes any ability to control the show away. If you try to pause or backup you have to reload the show and start from the beginning.
I paused a show, came back the next day and now the only thing I can load is that paused page. It won't play out, it won't go to a new show. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled. ABC apps works for me. Prime apps works fantastic (they did a great job with their design). I don't think the problem is my device.
Late Night is my favorite show but I'm not a late nighter.
Terrible app! 3/5
Terrible app! It crashes constantly and slow to open ANY of the shows. If the show actually starts, it will stop and the app will crash.
Stopped working on Fire TV Stick 1/5
I was watching it a lot through the holidays binge watching the entire Will & Grace original series through my Fire Tv Stick. One day it stopped showing anything other than an NBC logo. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, but nothing. I have 2 Fire Sticks on different TVs but the NBC app doesn’t work on either.
Terrible Functionality 1/5
This app is user friendly for the most part. However, the instant and uncontrollable influx of commercials is annoying to say the least. Unlike other apps such as Netflix, the app will not ‘remember’ watching points from device to device. Therefore, often times you have to spend time attempting to discover your stopping point. When doing so, you are often forced to participate in commercials...some over two minutes long. Even when watching a show continuously without pause through the app commercials are initiated and there is no option to skip.
The worst 1/5
Stops working after every episode. I have to disconnect chromecast, quit the app and start all over again to cast 2 episodes in a row.
The worst 1/5
By rewindisyour friend
Seriously the worst app ever.
Adore it 5/5
Love it!!❤️❤️❤️ I never get to watch an actual tv. This is all I need. I get to watch all my shows. Yay!!
Easy and efficient! 4/5
This is app is by far easier to use and allows me to navigate efficiently in finding the programs and shows that I'm looking to find.
Terrible app 1/5
Locking new episodes for a week is the most ridiculous thing in the world. And then when they do unlock they won't play. This app is the worst.
Love it! 5/5
The NBC app is great. Due to the fact that I get up very early each morning to go to work I am unable to watch some of my favorite shows because they start after I have retired. With the NBC app I can watch them at my leisure.
Worst -- NO stars 1/5
Live stream means nothing if it freezes every 5 min. Worst
Not bad, not great... 4/5
By Anne *#€~
This app is ok as far as network apps go. Not too many commercial, unlike ABC, relatively easy to use. Only caveat: I wish it would take me directly into the entire list of episodes for the last show watched, instead of only listing the last two. I was watching season 1 of a show, but the next time I logged in, it went
automatically to Sea. 2. It took me a few seconds to realize and go back to season 1, but since then, it shows that episode in the 2 last watched, which is confusing... Annoying to have to go back through the whole list of shows to bring up all available episodes....
Downloaded the app thinking it would be free that I could watch all my shows that I missed and I can’t without a tv provider! My family don’t have satellite or comecast or none of that mess! We have an antenna! Would be nice if those of us that is not as fortunate could be able to watch our shows too!!
Great app 5/5
Expires when 3/5
Would be so much better if you could please add dates to when each episode expires.
Good app 5/5
Easy to use and I love this is us
Terrible controls 1/5
If you cant watch an episode in a single setting, this app is a complete waste. No way to fast forward to where you left off. It takes you back to the beginning or takes you through all the advertisements since the beginning. Frustrating beyond words. Every time I fast forward it takes me back to the beginning of the episode. Absolutely worthless!!
No NBC to go 1/5
I usually get NBC to go using my Cox login. But I’m away from home for extended visit taking care of my pregnant daughter whose husband is deployed. Now the app keeps asking me to turn on location services. They are ALREADY on...on my phone and on the App. So frustrating. And I’m still paying my cable bill back home...
This is an excellent app 5/5
I accidentally erased my show from my Directv genie, so I used this app to watch the show. It worked great! Love, love, love this app!
This app will drive you crazy 1/5
I’ve decided every time I use, it try to use this app, I will write a review. I reluctantly went on the app today to watch the only show I use it for, and immediate frustration set in. The people responsible for this app should be fired or sent back to the position they had before they were plucked at random to build an app for NBC. I don’t understand how it could be SO BAD... and it’s only getting worse.
Waste of time 1/5
Wait for it on Netflix or amazon. They show you an ad before you download it, after you have started the process to download it.
Terrible app 1/5
Doesn’t support PIP. I watch the same few shows and the makes me dig through all their shows to find it. No paid option to remove commercials. Ghetto app.
Worst TV watching app available 1/5
I have had this app now for a while and every single time I use it, it is locked and requires me to log back in to my TV provider which is near impossible. I click the link TV provider link and nothing happens. I have had to re-download the app multiple times to get around the problem but this should not happen. In addition the chrome cast feature is terrible as other reviewers have mentioned. Would not recommend. Would rather pay for Hulu.
Do NOT waste your time. 1/5
NBC really need to get their apps in line. The only thing you’re going to watch is commercials. As soon as the show finally loads it goes into a buffer and when it comes back out you get to watch more commercials. This is truly the worst app I have ever seen of the networks. Don’t waste your time or your money.
Really disappointing app 1/5
This is a very disappointing app. At first I thought it would be great to be able to really take in the olympics this way. Unfortunately they didn’t think this one out very well. First most annoying aspect is that it constantly has a screen stating that coverage will begin shortly yet you can leave it on for a half hour and nothing happens. When you look in the schedule section it just says live. Come on! People have lives. You didn’t think to maybe put a count down or the actual time it will begin in the schedule?? 2nd most annoying is that there is very little actual coverage between commercial breaks. They’ll show one ski run and then switch to a couple commercials. Come on! I know you have to pay the bills, but you’ve got to think it out better than that.
Forever to load 2/5
Not a good app. It takes forever to load. Once it finally does, it takes a long time to bring up the episodes you tap. And then, oftentimes it will crash trying. That and a zillion commercials on some shows make it tiresome to watch.
Worst app I’ve every try to use 1/5
Who ever developed this app needs to find different employment. Programs restart at the beginning after a commercial. I am constantly having to reverify my account. I do more work trying to watch a program.
Can’t log in 1/5
We have NBC, as its a local channel and all. But I never get the option to sign in with a user name and password. the app just automatically starts looking for tv provider info, can’t find it because I’m not at home, and then tells me to buy stuff.
Casting starts the show at the start 3/5
This app is very frustrating. I finally realized that to use ChromeCast you have to start the program on your phone before telling the system to Cast it. Clunky...but ...I got used to it. But, beyond frustration is that though you can resume a show if you’ve been watching it on your phone, it won’t ‘resume’ if you hit the Cast button. Since you can’t use forward that means you have to watch the entire episode again. I was 35 minutes into an episode when I got sleepy. This morning I have to start the episode over to see it on my television. Why can’t you simply resume AND Cast?
As others say...Netflix has this figured out. Why can’t NBC?
Doesn't play 1/5
By No real Functionalty
Just downloaded it to watch America's Got Talent that I couldn't watch last night and it would't play. Very disappointed.
By Brenda Brophy
Katy Corick really? So very bad. Can we start the opening ceremony ? As it was 6 am this morning can you just get on with it
Absolutely Horrible 1/5
I second the January 13th review from Candace. 👎🏽
The WORST app 1/5
This is the worst app I have ever experienced. Constantly just goes out for no reason. I hate even giving it one star because it NEVER works
Can’t login to cox 1/5
Login for COX doesn’t work. It directs to the desktop page and the token doesn’t carry over. I am logged in but it keeps telling me I am not authorized to view new episodes on the app
This app is a big buggy headache 1/5
For such an important and reputable company/network, this app is a big buggy headache. It also doesn’t allow you to turn off closed captioning, making the viewing process very annoying.
Commercial placement. 2/5
Tried watching Smash on the NBC app and the commercial placement is terrible. If you want viewers to enjoy your best shows that you cancelled too soon, at least place ad breaks when a scene ends rather than randomly mid-scene.
Can’t rewind at all 1/5
By Horrible user experience
I never write reviews but this app was the breaking point for me. I downloaded this app to watch This Is Us on my chromecast and stream it to my tv. You can’t rewind or fast forward the show at all. If you start an episode, you better make sure you pay attention to every second and watch the entire episode in its entirety. Because rewinding, fast forwarding, and starting the show from anywhere that isn’t the very beginning is impossible.
Truly a s**t app 1/5
If you can’t make an app work, just sell the rights to Hulu or Netflix. A complete joke.
Love it!! 5/5
Thank you NBC!!
What even? 1/5
The app is terrible, the customer service is terrible, the locked episodes are terrible (because I have a tv provider and I’ve signed in and, apparently, it isn’t compatible with the Amazon Fire TV, though it was compatible for over a year).The only thing that is not terrible is Dateline- but that’s based on assumption as I have no credits left to unlock the newest episodes to see if they are good or terrible. For a major network, this whole situation is absolutely ridiculous.
STOP ALL THE EFFIING DRUG COMMERCIALS ALREADY! 1/5
By Khal Moro
NBC is the media arm of BIG PHARMA.
Big PHARMA owns the lawmakers and FDA through their lobbyists, and the networks like NBC and ABC via the money they launder through their commercials.
In return, they can push poisonous foods that make people sick, and drugs that keep people perpetually unwell.
They can strong arm the media to push their vaccines that cause autism, but never report on that, and force states to pass laws that make it mandatory for helpless children to have to take those vaccines, like in California.
Then they can hide behind the government protection they have, which prevents people from suing Big PHARMA, instead of holding them accountable for turning bright young minds into lifelong vegetables.
And media stands by mute, or they will lose all the money they receive from the drug commercials. Then the fake news tells people they should go get their vaccines. It is really criminal.
Meanwhile, health insurance premiums go up 20-30% each year, and drug prices go from pennies to thousands of dollars.
The new world order has begun, and America has become a 3rd world nation.
And it's going to get worse.
We are one of only 2 countries in the world that allow drug advertising, and every other country puts limits on the prices of pharmaceuticals.
WAKE UP PEOPLE. WAKE UP!
Does not except AT&T universe 1/5
Sansai changed from sling to AT&T universe I cannot watch Dateline.
Great app!😁 5/5
I love this app! It runs very smoothly and functionally and it is extremely easy to unlock all episodes. I couldn’t think of anything bad to say about this app and the corporation itself. Great job and keep evolving!
P.S. love all your shows, especially This is Us! I’m addicted! 😁
Sneaky m. 1/5
Sneaky app didn’t let me watch the super bowl even with my tv provider it was blacked out.
NBC App 5/5
By Thankful App
So thankful to have the NBC app! We no longer have cable but I can still get the shows I like on the NBC app if we are gone from home and miss a show!
Downloaded the app so I could stream a show we missed. Forced to link it to cable account. What a pain. Why not set it to link by geo location? Gave up.
