NBC App 5/5
I love the NBC App! I lost cable because the cost was way to much, but Iam able to watch my soap opera on this App. Love it!
No video 1/5
App can’t play any videos selected! Unsure what it can do.
Needs a pause & resume play option 2/5
I got the NBC app to watch Days of our Lives after it’s pre-empted by televised funerals, senate hearings, etc. This is a good alternative. Sometimes I need to pause it. After a couple minutes the video locks & will mot resume, & there is no visible play button anywhere, so I have to look at the time where the video left off, exit the video, find the right video again, & restart, then try to move the bar to where it left off, but having to wait for the same commercial (which I just saw before the pause) play again. This is very frustrating, especially if I’m trying to watch the video during the commercials of the current episode on TV, to see what I missed. PLEASE create user friendly pause & resume selection.
Won’t let me link my tv provider 1/5
I can’t watch anything because the “link tv provider” links and options don’t work anywhere on the app. Works on my tv, but the app is broken.
Don’t turn off your location or you’ll never get to view the app again 1/5
By all lies dont download app!!!
Don’t turn off your location or you’ll never get to view the app again. I’ve contacted the help desk 10 times and they refuse to help. AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE AND AWFUL APP!!!!!! Don’t waste your time!!!!!
Okay for what you get to see the App works, but it has the most terrible features of any other streaming app in history. It’s like the app was developed in 2005. I hate leaving bad reviews but NBC please update the app! It doesn’t show you where you are while scrolling, it’s laggy, has some issue with constantly telling me the volume. Will disconnect immediately after hitting play, somehow can tell me what’s playing on my other chromcast but won’t tell me what I’m watching. Please do something.
App doesn't work correctly in Colorado 1/5
The app incorrectly provides the West Coast feeds of channels to residents in Colorado. Support said that they have no plans to correct this.
Fix the cast function 1/5
The chrome cast function from the IPad to my google enabled tv is pathetic. I can’t seem to re-enter the app with out it stopping the video. Then I can’t fast forward to the spot I was at without things freezing.
Amazing, but... 5/5
Very good but won’t let me see all the episodes of my favorite show
Nice- If it worked properly. 2/5
By Driod to Apple
Every time I open the app, I have to “link” my tv provider. Not once a month, not once a week, and not even once a day. It is every single time the app is opened to use, regardless if it is still running in the background. The provider can still be shown as “linked,” but I still have to select “unlink” in order for the app to not ask me to use “credits” in order to watch shows. Note selecting “unlink” does not actually unlink the provider because the NBC app doesn’t have that kind of control over providers stored in Settings. It’s obnoxious toggling to the “My Profile” screen every single time I want to watch a show.
Additionally, the “Favorites” list is there sometimes and then can be completely missing in an instant, and that’s if the app doesn’t freeze in the “Home” screen time begin with.
Overall this new app format is garbage compared to the one that had the tabs listed on the left side of the screen.
I have come to wonder if anyone from NBC actually uses their own app.
Also- I hope their developers make significant improvements with this app before NBC starts charging viewers for it.
Live stream isn’t working anymore! 2/5
For some reason, all of a sudden, I’m not able to watch live tv anymore! Can someone please explain why this happened!
Downloaded to watch Live TV Stream on Chromecast Devices 1/5
Does not work! Period. Maybe there’s a fix somehow but the app shows it’s connected to my Chromecast device and is using our Xfinity account to gain access, but it just doesn’t cast........thoughts?!
This app just doesn’t cut it. I mainly use it to watch live coverage of news and football. I can’t get through a day without constant freezing and buffering from this app. This is the only app I experience these streaming issues with. You’ll be better off just using a cable provider (but who wants to do that) NEEDS IMPROVEMENT ASAP
In need of MAJOR updates 1/5
I keep waiting for this app to get better, and each update it’s still the same- slow, crashes, limited access to past seasons of shows. Just awful. Never mind streaming the live content. Better off with an antenna.
By Oregano name
This app is absolutely horrid! Cannot watch 1 show without it stopping for a glitch or just stopping period.
4 stars 4/5
By hannah oliviaaa
Good but I just wish that:
1. Once you connect your cable company, the commercials would go away
2. When you leave the app and come back it would resume playing right away instead of blanking and you having to go back to your recently played and resuming
Great app but I cannot watch all of the videos.
I’m looking for an app where I can see tv shows without questioning for link provider, etc.
HD looks like SD 3/5
Compared to straight cable feed from xfiniti the video through the app looks soft, reminiscent of SD.
By Bullish bull market
Enjoy the ability to watch shows, hate the provider trap, some issues with the app 4/5
By Dai Tek
Thank you for letting us watch some shows without having to list a provider - it’s nice to have the freedom of choice. We get the ads anyway...
Most times, if I pause the video for a break and come back to my screen, instead of being able to press play, I have to close the window and then re-open the video.This makes it a bit annoying. Thank you for providing the shows that you do!
Great if you like being annoyed 2/5
The glitchness of the app is so annoying. Sometimes it saves your place of what episode your watching. Most of the time it doesn’t and you’ll have to go through the commercials again. And besides when you get a text and you’re watching a show you should reply to that text and once you do and return to the app the player is all blacked out and you can’t watch the show. And it didn’t save your place, so you have to ext the player to watch through the commercials to get back to your place.
Additionally, shouldn’t a show be either a half hour long or an hour long on the network? It isn’t on the app the commercials AT LEAST add five to seven minutes more. Which should show you how many commercials there are and when it doesn’t save your place, you have to go through that all over again. Especially, when the rewind button takes you to the commercial.
Finally, I got the NBC app because I wanted to watch shows at anytime, I have an antenna and not a provider. They force you to link your provider or to make an account, to get 3 free episodes. And when the app loses your place and automatically says you’re on a different episode, gets pretty annoying.
The ONLY good thing about the app is that you get the chance to watch stuff. But at what cost?
Like Commercials? 2/5
Appreciate the shows that I wanted to see but there are more commercials on the app than regular programming. Thanks for the shows. No thanks for the loooong commercial breaks. Really don’t get something for nothing. App is buggy also and starts over on episodes a lot. Which is nothing if you didn’t have to watch the commercials if you fast forward.
Commercial-free version? 3/5
I watch more shows on CBS, but have a few on NBC I love. I put off watching them though because of all the commercials. I pay more to watch commercial-free on CBS, and would do the same on NBC but it’s not offered. Yes I have my cable provider linked. Seems ridiculous that I can’t choose to skip the commercials. That’s part of why I don’t watch on regular television.
Love the app! 5/5
By With appreciation
I am able to watch great shows from my phone, without long ads like is the case with other apps. Thank you!
Wish I could rate 5 star 4/5
Remove the commercials and a difinite 5 star winner.
I guess ok... 3/5
It takes to long to load your show.
Great App 5/5
So many great shows to watch!
Not pleased 1/5
App Store offers option to use prior version of app for my older iPad -
NBC "invites" me to "improve my viewing experience" by downloading most recent update -- then freezes if I don't, & cuts off if I do.
Really appreciate this app, however 3/5
By Ned bigby11
A few glitches need to be worked out. I have to continually open, close and reopen the app just to get through one show. I am patient but:/
Broadcast thieves 1/5
You can’t get any broadcast feeds for free. Not even over the air feeds. Why should anybody pay for TV supported by ads?
Too hard to access 1/5
I have been trying for 20 minutes to get into it to watch some back shows of the voice!!,,,,give up
Simon is wonderful 5/5
America got talent greatest show on television Simon is the greatest bringing best talent from the four corners of the earth
No parade; no app! 1/5
I logged in to my TV provider and even then couldn’t watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade! Good bye!
Has problems with chrome cast 2/5
The chromecast doesn’t work for live tv. And the icon will go missing
I honestly love this app , I really only downloaded it because my dad forgot to pay the Hulu bill & I was in the middle of a show that just so happen to be on the NBC app . The commercials are super annoying but I guess that’s how you guys make your money . Y’all should think about that . Us people are already paying enough in rent , food , & taxes . The least we could get is some apps without commercials .

Cable company is not listed 1/5
My cable company NfinityLink in Snow Hill, NC is not listed and they know nothing about how to get listed!
Terrible process for voting 1/5
By former fan of The Voice
This is terrible. I’m just trying to vote for Miracle on the voice and I apparently have to download the app. Voting should be easier without being tracked by your app.
Hey! Me again. I lovveeee this app. Only one problem. I have rabbit ears and no tv provider. I can’t do anything now!! Plz help!
Love it! 5/5
By myf & acf
My favorite shows to watch are Dateline and The Good Place!☺️
Needs to be fixed 3/5
By Love NBC, just not the app
This app has worked great for months - but the last month has been a bit irritating.
When you are watching live tv — the show will pause, and suddenly fast forward to once again be playing live. This is terrible especially when you’re watching news.
Needs to be fixed ASAP.
NBC app 4/5
I love the App it enables me to watch what shows I’ve missed anywhere I am especially Days of our Lives.
About Good Girls 5/5
I love this app but when is all the rest of good girls episodes going to be on the app.
Total crap 1/5
All I want to watch is The Blacklist since Hulu doesn’t carry it. But it keeps skipping every 30 seconds or so. Worst streaming app. I’m considering buying it on Amazon instead of trying to use this worthless app.
Freezing on live tv 1/5
By firetv stick
App continually freezes on live tv, continually buffering. And I have high speed internet.
App is complete garbage 2/5
I use other networks apps such as TNT and TBS and never have issues. They automatically pick-up/link my TV provider and the streaming is smooth and consistent.
With this NBC app, I have to manually make it link to Spectrum every time and the streaming is horrible. At least half the time it doesn’t work. It’s slow and buffers a ton. Good luck with Peacock because you’ve clearly demonstrated you don’t know how to deliver a good streaming experience.
By far better than the other two networks
