I am so grateful to have have access to this channel on my iPad. I can sit outside and keep up with current events. Thank you! Keep up the excellent work. Thank you
MSNBC Experience 5/5
Love that I can listen to all my favorite anchors and guests while I am stuck in my car on my long commutes!!! Just wonderful !!!!
Works great now! 5/5
Finally, the streaming works perfectly now. Thank you
Disable continuous play? 5/5
I love this app. Listen to it every night in bed as I fall asleep. My only complaint is that sometimes episodes will play over and over or lead into another episode and wake me up. MSNBC can you provide a way to disable the continual play?
An Inept Horror MSNBC - Show 1/5
You should start from the ground up on your App Development.
When able to successfully stream, CNN, YouTube, ABC, CBS, you name it 💢
I cannot stream MSNBC programming with this nightmare of an app. - WITHOUT constant app crashes, pauses or complete and constant pauses and stops in streaming.
When engaging their tech support I was told that they could not duplicate MY issues on their end.
This is akin to expressing that the Eiffel Tower doesn’t look the same to me from Los Angeles.
Completely childish and idiotic.
I just SMH and have to nearly cry at the complete ineptitude.
Need “REAL TIME” viewing 3/5
I have been an MSNBC viewer since its inception. Though democratically leaning, I find the host(s) on their individual broadcasts try to be as fair as possible calling out the error in in policies and decision making on both sides of the aisle. When I’m not able to view the programs on my TV, I go to my apps either on my phone or iPad. But MSNBC does not make its programs in REAL TIME. That should be a priority fix immediately. If I occasionally go to my CNN app, I can get real time video programming and real time news.
Apple TV and DirecTV fail 1/5
I cannot use my DirecTV account to log in on my Apple TV. I don’t care if this is on MSNBC’s end or DirecTV, but please fix this ASAP.
Too Much Spooling 3/5
By Ballet Billy
Of course the commercials don’t spool, but the live programs spool or just shut down.
Updated faster! 5/5
I love Rachel Maddow. My earlier frustration with this app was the fact that the last night’s show would populate two days later. Now, it’s updated the next day-yay!
I love the MSNBC lineup 4/5
I have been watching MSNBC on tv for a little over 2 years now to keep up on the political idiocy that has taken over our country. A couple weeks ago my tv and DVR started fighting and now I listen to MSNBC. My one negative is that it appears that Rachel Maddow is not on it (or I can’t find her) the one positive is that everyone else is there and I am enjoying them almost as much as my tv. I am over the Cologard Ad however. It makes me mute it and then I forget to turn it back on. (I really hate that ad. Not the company or product. Just the ad cuz it plays on every single break.)
Always buggy 2/5
By h-man chitown
Whether duplicating mandatory ads, losing the place I left off, the vanishing status bar, or signing out my provider, this app *always* had issues, it’s as if they don’t want you to watch the content on a mobile device in an increasingly mobile device utilizing world.
Wonderful source for the news! 5/5
I enjoy the efforts of this network to present a thorough and expansive reports from a journalistic and constitutional perspective.
Not fully AirPlay 2 compatible 3/5
By PhillySportsFan II
After literally years waiting for them to get their video problems straightened out, I think the worst is behind them. But this weekend I discovered this: When playing an episode, I wanted to send audio to a Sonos speaker. When attempting that, the video placeholder for the episode returns to the iPhone screen, the episode plays dimly at the same time, plus the video controls appear in the screen and can’t be dismissed—all at the same time. Needless to say, it makes the video unwatchable. After a few back and forth messages with support (which was very quick to reply) it was left with “I just found out we don’t support speakers.”
I’m enjoying this app! 4/5
I am not a cable customer and with 2020 elections approaching, I was elated with my discovery that my most fav news network had an app. No unexpected experiences with an app that runs on data/WiFi so, I do enjoy my hours spent getting smarter with “news peeps”. I gave four stars because...well only God gets five.
Not News but Leftist Propaganda 1/5
By LongCommuter PodcastListener
I was at an event that was reported on. What was said and done were not what MSNBC reported! What the politicians said were shamefully distorted, using short clips and false narratives. Not surprised that MSNBC became labeled with “Fake News.”
Better than the AppleTV version 3/5
On Apple TV, commercials do not lineup in the MSNBC app. I can find nothing on the Internet about this. Wish the developers would address this, as it truncates content.
Not working 2/5
Does not load smoothly on my new iPad, frequently stops, loses sound, crashes during ads. Same version works a little better on my old iPad but app is full of faults which I don’t find in other news apps.
Cutting the cable 5/5
This is the only I can follow this excellent network since cutting the cable, thanks
The freezing and lagging are much better. Although there is always room for improvement.
It’s frustrating as sometimes it works sometimes it dosent. Many times I had to uninstall and reinstall. Wish they would focus on the comments so they can fix this!
This is a great app. I gave up looking at my TV and now I can get my favorite shows wherever I am. Thanks
Love it! 5/5
Can’t understand why MSNBC app is receiving all of these bad reviews. I haven’t had any problem with it...no freezing...no errors. I thought freezing occurred when the Internet signal wasn’t strong enough.
Anyway, I love this app, and I love MSNBC!
MSNBC Mobile App 5/5
Flawless on my IOS devices, mobile or WiFi.
Don’t understand some of the negative feedback I see in these comments?
I’m spoiled with TIVO and miss the buffer feature that allows
Viewer to go back a little if something is missed. Don’t know if the technology will ever allow this...Maybe when
5G is introduced? jdb
I cut the cable 1/5
But I can see all this on stitcher or iTunes. So who needs cable?
Difficult to Sign on from iPhone 1/5
Spent 39 minutes & still could not get in
Channel not available with subscription 1/5
Then please explain to me why I just watched this channel on my TV. It’s a part of the package! Why can’t I access the shows via the app? Dumb!
Suggestion. For example...... 4/5
Make it easier to subscribe. Is msnbc offered as part of the basic package?
PAY WALL 1/5
Xfinity put up a pay wall
Why should I pay more 💰 to watch OLD episodes WITH A COMMERCIAL on my phone ???
Makes no sense !!!
Access from a distance 5/5
Despite what other reviews say, I highly value MSNBC's app. It allows me to watch TRMS, 'All In', and 'The Last Word' when I'm away from home. This, for someone who is a student of political science, is invaluable. True you need a cable account to piggyback off of, but what is that in comparison to other apps that either give you limited access or require an outrageous subscription at $10-25/month.
Doesn’t work. 1/5
By Wannabe dork
When the app does work you have to watch a few minutes then wait for it to unfreeze then watch again and freeze again. It’s amazing how it never freezes while playing the commercials of which here are twice as many as any other news app. It won’t work at all anymore on the Apple TV. Video play error for everything all the time. It used to just work and now nothing. Nothing fixes it. I wonder if the content is being blocked?
Great App 5/5
I’m surprised to see so many negative reviews. This app works fine for me.
In times like this when we have such a horrific ‘president’ 5/5
This is the one place i can find news that the most horrific, lying, traitorous whitehose does not control. I do have to limit how much i watch as my dr is afraid i will have a heart attack. I already had heart surgery last june and my brother the following month had a quadruple bypass and we are neither old nor out of shape.
I am so repulsed by the way the republicans have rolled over and paved the way for trump to destroy our democracy.
I do not trust our elections anymore and obviously the checks and balances i was brought up to believe were in place, are not.
This is a horror show but you give me hope.
Not Dependable 1/5
Why arent the shows available the same evening, if at all ?
Not working on many nights. Is it the provider orMSNBC?
Either get your act together or drop it.
When it works, it’s great. When is the big variable. 3/5
It’s odd how an application can be so unpredictable on a daily basis. A few days ago, it was working quite well. It would stay on task for hours. Today, it chokes every time it’s loaded. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s Comcast’s insanely convoluted authorization protocol. After a successful sign-in many days ago, today I must slog through it again and again and again.
Is it just me? 5/5
By No Speak Techno
I really like the app and haven’t have very many issues at all with streaming. On the once-in-a-while occasion something has happened, logging off and logging back in does the trick. I’m very pleased
Constantly disconnects 1/5
My favorite news channel, my least favorite app.
App is terrible!!!!! 1/5
Can't even sign in...you need to get it together in this age of streaming. Sad when you have a TV provider that you want to give me 3 episodes and I can't sign in.
More informative 5/5
By Smolders Kat
The news is believable considering the mess in Washington DC. Thank you all for that point.
My only problem is I live near a busy airport and it messes with my WIFI. Not the apps problem.
Love the reporters! Racheal you rock!
I love it 5/5
Makes for a good way to stay up with what is going on.
Love this app 5/5
Love MSNBC, you guys & gals say it like it is!!!
I can’t even sign in 1/5
I can see I’m not the only one who is frustrated by this app. Why do I have to sign in. Why do I need a cable carrier to sign in. When I change carriers then I need to change my sign in again. If MSNBC wants to stream their content, why be tethered to a cable carrier?
Travel blues 1/5
Am traveling & can’t seem to get program to upload. Really regret as I wanted to catch up on news programs I had missed.
Have watched programs before w/o much problem. Instructions not clear as to how to access under these conditions. Frustrating
Please fix Apple TV app 1/5
It’s terrible, notifications cover screen for video you’re already watching. UI is a mess and doesn’t work on Apple TV
MSNBC on AppleTV 1/5
If you want to watch MSNBC on AppleTV you can by downloading the NBC News App. They have it hidden in there!
I use several streaming apps on AppleTV, iPhone8 and iPad Air2 in conjunction with my Dish subscription.
This one is still the winner for poorest performance across all devices I use.
Love MSNBC 5/5
This app is great. Allows me to watch while I cool and clean
Unable to connect 1/5
By tocco belle
I tried the three free episodes and was sent an activation link that I could not get to work. Very disappointing!
Doesn’t work in car w Appleplay 2/5
Want to listen live with the App. Doesn’t work.
Happy to have! 5/5
We have AT&T Unlimited + more. We are way out in the AZ desert and couldn’t get tv reception. Called Directv and they walked us through what we needed to do and it is wonderful for what my hubby wants to watch.....MSNBC! There are other programs available as well.
Works as advertised 5/5
Not clear how or if live broadcasts are available with this app.
