NBC app is horrible 2/5
Every time I try to watch a show and have to hit pause the darn app ends up closing then takes SO to try to get back in app to the show and try to start up again-major flaw and inconvenient
The app keeps closing 1/5
It’s all fine until the app closes in the middle of one of your favorite shows 🤦🏻♀️ someone fix this plz
Literally the only thing that loads are the ads. Then the screen goes black and then another 2 mins of ads. If u like watching ads then this is for you
Don’t use this on an iPad!!!!! 1/5
This is the worst app I have ever seen or used on my iPad. It takes about two minutes to load, the another two minutes to be able to scroll through the shows, another two minutes to find the episode, and another two minutes to start it. Then it freezes and boots you out so you have to start over. And commercial after commercial, after commercial. I have them memorized and hate them so much I would NEVER buy that product!!
NBC, you are better than this. Fix it or you will continue to lose viewers.
Terrible times 2. 1/5
By Frustrated xckenkde
This app stinks. I get 30 seconds into a show and it craps out and shuts down the app. ABC's app doesn't do this so it is your lousy app and not my device. Tired of wasting my time with your app. Fix it or I am deleting the app forever!
Since the latest update this app will not one on my iPad!
Nbc not available in my area on Hulu??? What the heck!!! Disappointed in whately, Ma 1/5
I’m very disappointed I can’t receive Nbc in whately Ma. Not on roku. Cable companies rip u off and o refuse to go back to cable. Guess I have no choice but to miss my favorite shows. Sad I’m whately
Accessibility for the blind is not 3/5
I as a blind woman, enjoy NBC and the other stations none of these apps are accessible for the blind, using AppleTV, iPhone, or iPad, I do enjoy watching listening to NBC but I can't do that because it is not accessible for these apps for us blind people, when an app is created please make sure they are accessible for blind people we do like to listen to music, listen to TV, and do things. So I will be deleting my NBC app until it becomes more inseparable.
Finally relevant 1/5
I finally have a reason to use this app. Live tv is finally on this app I can watch the Voice live now. Norfolk was not available for live tv until now thank you but u get 1 stars because the sound is not right and I can watch live tv one day then I can’t the next day why????
Problematic with AppleTV 2/5
This app constantly is asking me to sign in with an nbc profile or my provider DirecTV by going online & using an activation code. However, it constantly freezes on the nbc website during this process which I shouldn’t even have to do as the app should be using the info off the settings of the AppleTV. Then even after that fails but wastes my time I can access some programming anyway. Fix your stupid app!
Serious issues 2/5
Some of my fave shows are on nbc, but brutal to watch on this app... commercials just start playing whenever, and parts of shows will be missed because of it. Ive had shows come back from a supposed commercial break and its the end of the show. And then you have to start all over again if you want to find the missing parts. Even had a show jump 15 minutes ahead right while the show was streaming... i dont get it. Took me over 2 hours to watch a 1 hour show and see all the video. Never had this problem on any other network’s app. I dont want to resort to bootlegged internet video, but if this app dont get fixed soon, im going to have to dump it! Stupid ridiculous!!
Terrible App 1/5
This thing wouldn’t work from the get go. Tried signing in with my cable account so I could watch shows while away but it would just freeze every few minutes.
This app is worthless. Whatever update they did has rendered it completely unusable. Every time I try to play a show, it crashes! Please fix this.
Good show line ups 4/5
I enjoying being able to see the rest of show content missed during tv debut time. I like being able to go back and rewatch a scene. When loading, the app takes a very long time which factored into 4 stars. With faster loading, I would change my rating to 5 stars.
NBC app 3/5
Works fine on my ipad, just wish NBC would store more then just the current season.
Really unimpressed with all things NBC. I have tried the app on my Amazon Fire TV, my phone, and even just playing shows on their website and it’s awful. It doesn’t keep track of which episode you are on. It’s glitchy. It seems like all they care about is making you watch commercials.
Awful since the last update 1/5
I have used this app for years and found that this last update has been terrible. It takes forever for the app to come up. There is a lag in scrolling through the shows. If you select a show to be a favorite, no new shows load to that page. Whatever change that was make a couple weeks ago, please fix the bugs or back it out.
No Audio un Austin 1/5
The app is rather useless when watching live tv in Austin (KXAN) has the wrong audio settings when running network shows and commercials so all you hear is music or nothing at all. The local news is OK so it’s the settings they have for the network on the app.... please fix
By Liana Bee
This app is horrible. I go to watch an episode of a show, and even if I have a really strong connection (I use the app on an ipad) it takes almost 20 minutes just to start the episode. It’s another 5 or 10 before it loads enough to watch it without is pausing every 2 second. Do not get this app unless you have a lot of time to waste. Totally not worth my time.
iPhone X view 5/5
I use NBC app to watch morning news. I love the new wide screen view provided for new iPhone.
Not user friendly 2/5
Sometimes it saves the episodes I’ve watched, but if not, I have to search through all the shows then episodes to find where I was at. AND, the advertisements are RIDICULOUS!! There are more ads than show!!!
Horrible audio for National News 1/5
By Annette D H
The Live stream of NBC Nightly News has horrible audio quality. The live voices are at a significantly lower volume level than recorded content. Turning up the volume to hear the anchor means getting a auditory shock when a video segment plays. And the anchor is completely drowned out when doing a voice-over during video playback.
This audio problem is also present during national breaking news segments but is absent during local news programing.
Amazingly bad ap 1/5
This app is the slowest ever to open. And when open it is prone to freeze or just pop out. Takes great patience and perseverance to use. If the shows weren’t so good, I would avoid this app at all costs!
Home away from home 5/5
this is a really good app to have when you’re away from home. If you’re in some foreign country or an Airbnb without a TV it’s nice to keep in touch with the world
By Vivian Venus
Great series. Would like to see previous years' episodes.
I enjoy the app, not the commercials!
NBC Tops the major channel apps 5/5
By MuuMuu Iris
I've been watching major and minor channels using apps for along time, and NBC is the most user friendly easy to use app out there.
Love NBC app 5/5
By Janet poooo
I love your nbc app, it always runs smooth when I’m on there watching different shows that I love. NBC seems to be having all the really great shows like; This Is Us, Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Voice, Blacklist, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Blindspot, Chicago Med, ALL THAT I LOVE!!! That’s a short list of my favorite shows on nbc!❤️
NBC app 5/5
By Allan Phoenix
Looks good from any angle and the slides are put together very nicely. Try watching Timeless..it is a great show.
More commercials than show 2/5
Really annoying when streaming a show. The show will play only several minutes and gets interrupted mid-sentence to break to another 6 commercials. This app has so many commercials that it take 1hr 15min to watch a 1 hour show. NEEDS WORK
ABC rocks 5/5
Great for when you can't watch your shows or to catch up.
Horrible especially on Xfinity/Comcast 1/5
By Dont Do It
You would think the NBC app would work beautifully on Xfinity/Comcast since they own NBC. The picture freezes, turns fuzzy and is frequently pixilated. Others, like Netflix, can deliver a smooth experience why can't NBC? Did anyone test this before it was released? I skipped the Olympics because it was unwatchable. Don't bother taking up any storage space with this app until they get their act together.
It works well 5/5
Does exactly what I hoped for.
Review of nbc app 5/5
Im glad that nbc has an app where i can watch my shows if im not able to see them when theyre on tv or especially when I am watching
Days of Our Lives and there is a special news announcement.
Great app! 5/5
By Faux Anonymity
The NBC app works really well. Easy to learn & has all the great shows. The favorites list is an excellent feature. 👍👍👍
Pretty seamless 4/5
As a viewer who generally watches NBC on regular TV, I've found this app to be MUCH more easy to deal with due to significantly less commercials and those that do come up are far shorter. Thanks!
Continual Crashing 1/5
This app crashes constantly. So surprised that a network TV app would perform so poorly. Get it together!
So far so good! 5/5
I downloaded the app to watch Jesus Christ Superstar (2018 version) since I missed it the day it aired. I was able to watch it for no charge. Loved that I could skip back a few seconds at a time for stuff I missed and could pause it as long as needed!! I skipped back twice one time and thought I would get stuck rewatching the same commercials I just saw but a commercial popped up 1/2 a second and went away straight to the show!! I see they have the app set to realize when you already "been there done that" commercial lol. My other tv app will make you watch more commercials (same ones repeatedly and if you skip back or fast forward the same ones again) on way shorter shows than this app made me watch on this very long musical so I was pleasantly surprised!! I hope all my future app watching experiences go as well as they did this first time!
Zero 0 ⭐️ would be more accurate 1/5
Terrible app. Don't waste your time or effort here. Last yr. it use to work just fine even w/o having to sign in.
Can't get any show to play at all.
They just can't seem to get their act together at NBC.
2-3 minutes of commercials that you are unable to fast forward through and the 30sec of the voice and then back to 2-3min of commercials! Ridiculous! I understand someone has to get paid by these commercials but allow an option to fast forward and play the whole dam show not bits and pieces! Thought this would be a good option to catch up on the VOICE, but not even close! I would give it a zero if I had the option!
Horrible App 1/5
The app constantly crashes...it buffers forever...what kind of technology, if you want to call it that, does NBC have? You need to look to the UK with our apps being superior to any of yours...we are way ahead in technology...
Full screen mode is cropping image on iPhone X 2/5
I have the iPhone X so when this app is in landscape modes it fill the whole screen and the image is cropped and it cuts the top and bottom half, making it hard to watch videos. Please fix this
Terrible for streaming 1/5
By User for 3 minutes
“It’s a always fun when we get to watch a little TV between commercials.” - my husband to me as we are trying to watch a show from the middle of the episode.
Most times if we don’t finish an entire episode, the app does not save our place (or saves somewhere mid-episode, but not where we actually are). If I am casting to the TV from my phone, most times there is no progress bar on my phone for me to change where we are so I have to disconnect from the TV to find my spot and then re-cast. Every time I slide the progress bar in the episode we have to re-watch a whole round of commercials. Just now, it took about 15-20 minutes (and multiple whole commercial breaks) just to get to our last watched spot. We watched about a minute of the show and then were blasted with another break of commercials. Once we finish this season of the show we’re watching, we’re done with this app for good.
I can’t even log in my credentials without the app crashing on me every time. The developers really need to update and fix this app. I can’t watch my shows at all. I’m lucky if I get through an entire episode without it crashing on me...HORRIBLE
Jesus Christ Super Star 5/5
I just loved it. I saw and have the album of 1973 JCSS. I can sing almost every word. Everyone did a fabulous job. I wish I was there but thank you NBC for having it on for us and Easter Sunday.
Even the ads won’t load 1/5
Unable to load content, what’s the point?
I want to watch live features 3/5
This app is ok. I don't watch very much tv. But I like watching an episode here or there and am really enjoying AP Bio. What I really want is to be able to watch shows live. We do not have cable or any provider on our tv- we watch through the antenna when we want live tv. It's free. The same should be possible through the NBC app.
Locks episodes and doesn't tell you when you can view them
This app is horrible! 1/5
I too would rate it negatively if I could. Takes forever to load. Search feature does not work. All the Dateline videos are unavailable! What???!!!
Features are fantastic, functionality frustrating and flawed 3/5
Love the app, love that it shows that I’ve already watched a show and can easily view my favorites.
I have a couple of challenges. First, I watch my shows when I’m in bed before I go to sleep or if I wake up early enough to have time, and occasionally fall asleep, waking up in the middle of whatever episode is “up next”, but then when I go back to watch the ending of the show I really wanted, it refuses to play, instead giving me a 6-10 seconds countdown to “what’s next”. If I push the counter bar forward, it just resets to the menu screen. I’ve even tried quitting the app and restarting and it does the same thing. It’s extremely frustrating, especially if one show has the potential to segue to the next - then I can’t watch either one. :(
The second issue is that, frequently with four signal bars or connected to WiFi, the shows often just - freeze - before starting. They won’t load. I know it’s not my device because I’ll have just watched a show on another network, sometimes even NBC itself, with no issues. I’ve also tried restarting my phone, kicking it into airplane mode and back out, turning WiFi or off, yet I often have to restart something 8 or more times to get it to play.
One minor issue - when I lock the orientation, it would be great if it locked the way I wanted to (usually landscape) but instead it locks to portrait, which is what I’m trying to prevent in the first place, lol.
So the features of the app are fantastic. It’s the functionality that is frustrating and flawed.
