Best ever! 5/5
By Joe 3145
I am very pleased with the staff, especially the reporters and program hosts. They speak the truth and they speak from the heart. I start with Morning Joe and watch all day.
Very inconsistent 1/5
It seems that I’m not able to log in and on the rare instances when I’m am able I don’t stay logged in. It’s frustrating, can’t even use the msnbc.com site to try and watch full episodes there, it’s not available online.
I have recently started watching MSNBC. I really enjoy listening to different views about a political issue.
I have always it is of vital importance to keep informed about political issues.
Rachael Maddie is my favorite.
The app enables me to have more access to the news, including programs I may have missed.
By KEYE LUKE
Wish This App Would Allow One To Fast Forward & Rewind.Also,Shows Are Taken Away After A Day Or 2.Not Very User Friendly Like CNN & Fox.
User Not Authorized Error 4/5
Overall I like this app, but at least once a day I get this error and have to sign out of my provider and back in. Please fix this, it is very annoying.
Thumbs Down 1/5
By Pi**** O**
I dont understand how this works. I was charged by Apple TV for a program I already get through my cable provider. I knew this was happening but I wanted to give Apple TV a try to see if I’ll save money. I downloaded the app to my iPad....what does this have to do with my cable service? Apple TV will not allow me to watch something on my iPad I paid them for because it says I’m not authorized by my cable provider? Too complicated for me👎
Sign in every use? 3/5
By The Orange Baron
I didn’t used to have to sign in every time I wanted to see Morning Joe howl on about DJT.. but whatever I’ll jump through your hoop
Can’t seem to watch live ,even when show has played on east coast 4/5
I love to watch this channel. My favorite is Rachel Maddox and Laurence O’Donnell. I’m not having trouble watching after signing in through Xfinity App. But I can’t seem to watch Rachel at 6pm on West Coast on my iPad as apposed to watching at home on tv. I will wait till after she repeats at 9pm to see if I can watch on my iPad the same day programming. I’m out of town now and it’s 9:30pm. Maybe after 10pm I can watch current day.
Go Live! 3/5
I’m a fan of MSNBC but they don’t show live shows, it’s pre-recorded.
I deleted off the app because I can watch pre-recorded shows on YouTube.
I have the CNN app because they have live shows.
Once you can watch live shows then I’ll te-download it.
Why do I have to keep signing in to my cable provider??? 2/5
By Knowledge Lover
The app is now forcing me to re-sign in with my cable provider more than once a day. What is the issue? Seriously degrades the viewing experience - ASID it isn’t bad enough having to watch so many ads and having the same ad repeated during once commercial break.
You really are discouraging viewership.
By port newark Eddie
Waiting for current episodes to be available. But your made to wait for them. Fox and CNN have three content available quickly. Even with podcasts. I find my self downloading cnn content ( podcast and steaming daily new content) before msnbc!!
Picture in Pictures 4/5
I’d have given this APP 5 stars, but when are we going to get Picture in Picture?
Crap without support 1/5
By Cousin Brucee
The program fails to activate with cable subscription. Contacted support who basically responded with “Not our problem, contact your cable provider.”
It will activate for an hour or so, then say MSNBC is not included in your cable subscription. It does this on an Amazon Fire TV. It works fine on my iPad & iPhone (although I can’t get closed captioning to turn off)
I’ve checked the news groups for multiple cable providers and they all have many complaints about the same problems. It activates for a while then stops.
The worst 1/5
You send me to the faq page with no way to actually contact someone. I’ve logged into tv provider, but it says I need to allow location services. Fine! But then I click settings and location is not allowed. I go to privacy and location and msnbc is not listed there. You know what would help? An option to possibly talk to or email a person?!?!?
Decent - but could be improved 4/5
By Book guy FL
What this app really needs is an archive - in a big way!
They keep a few shows (one or two) in backlog for their popular shows, but that’s it. Bad, bad move!
Why? It means that people that want more MSNBC backlog stuff (and lots of us do!) go to YouTube, rather than MSNBC....
It doesn’t take an investigative reporter from MSNBC to realize that people should be GOING TO YOUR SITE FOR ALL YOUR CONTENT. That’s just good business!
Good news coverage 5/5
While my husband is watching sports or an action movie, I can catch up on current events (excellent coverage). I also get to hear differing opinions regarding incidents & events, and not the one sided bologna espoused by the Fox network.
Having issue streaming with Spectrum in Tampa 3/5
Love MSNBC 5/5
This is the best news channel. Every anchor/host is professional enough to be NBC’s Nightly News anchor, yet still seem cool people I’d totally hang out with....
I love Nicole Wallace, she’s so quick on her feet & has the BEST discussions on her show!
Audio only mode? 3/5
It’d be great to have an audio only mode to save bandwidth. Sometimes I just want to put my phone in the pocket and listen to MSNBC....
Can,t sign in 1/5
By Louie 43
It will not let me sign to my provider.
LESS DRAMA STORIES PLEASE! 4/5
Political coverage is excellent... local tragic news is NOT needed!!! PLEASE!! The less the merrier!!!
MSNBC Awesomeness 5/5
I truly appreciate MSNBC. They are diverse, objective and fact based. I especially enjoy The Rachel Madow and Joy Reid shows in the evenings but I enjoy watching MSNBC always.
Thank you MSNBC.
Love MSNBC but hate the app 1/5
The app consistently struggles with loading. I have seen a slight improvement over the last few months with the video not just stopping all together, but now the app keeps kicking me off and then when I go to sign in the button does nothing.
Way too many repetitive ads!!!! Very poor connectivity! 1/5
MSNBC can do better than this!!! Really!!! It’s like torture with these ads. One night during Lawrence O’Donnell the same ad played 6 times in a row! It’s exhausting! We should have the option to opt out of ads or at the very least better programming. Better ads and NO REPETITION!!!!
My Shining Star! 5/5
By Fabulous Freddie
MSNBC is my go to network, from their Truth In Journalism philosophy to their broadcast journalists...they are stars above the rest! I start and end my day with MSNBC
MSNBC on Apple TV: NONSTANDARD UI 1/5
By V. C. Gg345
Since I cannot review the MSNBC app for Apple TV on the Apple TV, I am reviewing it here.
There is no way to swipe down in order to turn closed captioning subtitles on or off. This is unlike every other major app on the Apple TV.
There is no way to swipe down in order to change the audio output selection. This is unlike every other major app on the Apple TV. YouTube has the same problem.
To do these things, I have to go to some other properly designed TV or video app; make these selections; and then click click click click click to get back to MSNBC.
If I want to watch MSNBC, let’s count the clicks and swipes required:
1) Click to select the app.
2) Swipe down to select MSNBC
(MSNBC enlarges to show the selection)
3) Click to select MSNBC
(MSNBC jumps up into the corner.)
4) Click on ‘Play Now’
(A gratuitous bright blue screen (with an animation showing “MSNBC - Watch Live”) swipes in from the right, covering everything for a moment, and then the show starts to play.
This adds no value, it is not beautiful – it is a distraction that calls attention to itself for no reason.
But there is a little yellow progress bar underneath PLAY NOW that indicates you do NOT have to click on PLAY NOW.
Why is that button there?
Who designed this? Who approved this? What is accomplished by all of these clicks and animations?
Another non-standard user interface decision:
If I swipe right to select News, something unexpected happens: rather than moving the cursor to the right to select News, it pushes everything on the screen to the left, so that now I’m selecting the Today Show which was not even showing on the screen. This is completely non-standard, and it works the opposite of what the user would expect.
Frequent Freezing 3/5
Usually freezes at least twice during program. Occasionally pops up message that they don’t serve my location, which seems pretty meaningless since I just close it and carry on. Wish I could watch live on the Roku app but no. Other than that, good I guess.
Keeps telling me I’m not subscribed 1/5
By flower child lives
I was looking at the app perfectly fine until today. I was kicked out of the program that I was watching and then received a message that I wasn’t subscribed to the channel and to call my subscriber. I tried logging out then back in and deleted app and reinstalled, but nothing works. The strange thing is that it will play on my Galaxy and not my iPad; same info but different outcome. C’mon mannnnn
By buzz dewitt
It is criminal that in largely republican areas cable news is hard to get unless it is spelled F-O-X. The MSNBC app does nothing to improve that situation. It is no wonder so many Americans are “gAslighted.” Where I am now, in Suffolk County, NY, it is like being in Soviet land. Northwestern NY is the same. How can this be legal, let alone ethical
Great app 4/5
I love this app. I can catch up on the 11th hour and Nicole Wallace. At times it does freeze up and starts again but I can live with that.
When you don’t have WiFi 5/5
Being on a small fixed income, I have had to turn off cable, as well as the WiFi. It’s just too expensive.
With this app, I can watch my favorite news just hours after being aired! It is a win win situation. If I am not awake or I am at work, I am able to watch my early morning news when I want at no cost!
Try this app and see if you don’t agree. Whatever your show is, you will enjoy it when you want.
No1 Fan 5/5
I love the show. So I’m thankful for the App. Keep up the good work.
5 stars 5/5
Always insightful and getting to the stories that need to be told
By Garden Teacher
The app quits when I try to sign in or choose live viewing. Fix this app.
Not signing in. 1/5
Trying to sign in with dIRECTV now but I cannot authenticate with DIRECTV NOW because I get a error message when I go to the page error message of SC 400
Great App 5/5
This is by far one of the best apps that I have ever had it allows me to get all my news and if there was something I missed the day before there is video set aside that I love it keep it up keep it up it’s great work
I really like this app as i am always away from home yet still able to watch my
‘morning joe’ show.
Expand Archives and Promote Don’t Miss Episodes 3/5
By Common Sense Moderate
You have the capacity to archive and offer access to more than one or two episodes per show so why don’t you? For example, I would like to watch Rachel Maddow’s interview with Hilary Clinton that I missed when it first aired. After traveling it would be so nice to get caught up on whatever I missed. Please include a thumbnail summary of the content in each episode so they are differentiated.
Why not use the app to promote some of the episodes and specials that you headline on Cable? Doing so would energize the app!
By sorry all nicknames taken
You’ve really got lots of bad reviews no need to rub it in but perhaps you can make the app BETTER
I want to see live shows
Love that I can watch Rachel live! 5/5
Not on the east coast, so Rachel almost always comes on when I’m still getting dinner ready. With this app, no problem.. I’m able to take the iPhone in the kitchen and catch her while I finish up dinner. MSNBC rocks.. love it!
Sterling Journalism 5/5
I am addicted to Rachel Maddow, and am routinely astonished at the depth of her reporting and her uniquely effective presentation. She is a convivial, humorous personality, making the worst news eminently palatable. She is high on the Mensa scale, easily dissecting very complex stories and relating the facts in rapid-fire delivery that nevertheless registers, allowing her to cover a wide range of issues in her limited time, and speak with intelligence in a fashion that does not leave any viewer left behind.
That is A+ journalism. And as a graduate of Columbia J School and recipient of an Emmy for investigative reporting, I can say that with a bit of authority.
Make it easier to watch a TV show on my iPhine!! 1/5
I am a Direct TV subscriber. I always used to be able to watch MSNBC shows screening live, on my iPhone through my msnbc app.
Today I’m getting an error message saying that I should contact my provider because I don’t have a subscription for those shows.
Not only have I had a subscription via Direct TV, last week my wife upgraded our subscription to include several additional shows.
I have trouble remembering all my IDs and passwords... why is it always such a pain in the a** to watch streaming shows I used to watch live before, without all the inconvenience??
Love it for Eagle Radio 5/5
I understand that apps can be glitchy so I’m kinda fine with the freezing it does sometimes; but I can’t say that I don’t notice it. But I like being able to hear EagleRadio.Pro on here and it just really helps my day go better; and I appreciate that it’s free.
Time to fix the channel 2/5
By Voice of the customer
I don’t know who runs a MSNBC app but it is a junkie application. It keeps asking me for my location every hour or so and then stops. Then for all of us sudden I get the wheel of death on the screen. This is a problematic piece of garbage that they have designed. I have the latest iOS and it seems that either MSNBC doesn’t understand the inner workings of the Apple iOS system or iOS is far more advanced than the MSNBC app but somebody needs to do something to blow up the app and build a new one
If you don’t want these problems and you want to get MSNBC for free you can Google rock in a rooster MSNBC live and you will stumble across a relatively error-free European feed for MSNBC that does not have commercials.
I think I may wind up going there and dumping Comcast because either Comcast does not share my identity data properly or MSNBC is APM is polluted but somebody isn’t doing something proper and they should check it out because I see nothing but complaints about this app
MSNBC APP 5/5
Some one wrote, “not perfect but very handy”, and I agree.
Only news app on my iPad so not much to compare to.
Does freeze up sometimes and skips stuff but I’m so happy to have when tv not available.
FIVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars just because I love MSNBC
Know the truth and the truth will set you free
Content great. Functionality poor. 3/5
By Dave of Daves
Forgets where I left off. Does not share history between my devices. Audio and video out of sync. Freezes. Frequently asks me to reestablish link to TV provider and often fails to do so.
Sure would be nice to be able to turn off closed captioning! 2/5
My ipad plays on your app but I have been unable to turn off closed captioning for months now. I see I am not the only person with this problem. I try hitting cc, no. Hit it again, no. Delete the app and then download again, no. Must need a fix on your end.....
