I’m enjoying to watch shows but one thing that I want to ask is what does “ Your going to use a credit” and it shows a number of its one credit or two?
Does not let me link to provider 1/5
The app doesn't let me link to my tv provider i have deleted the app several time and downloaded again and still doesn't open the icon to link to provider.
Needs updates 3/5
Very glitchy. Keeps removing my linked provider.
Should all be free 3/5
I have no cable. I should be able to watch the shows I missed that I see for free on my local station? Stupid three credit thing?
Good App But... 3/5
I like the app, but noticed some developing is happening. New enhancements and new glitches. Good is live shows are more available for your local stations. But if you want to watch several shows coming up the live feed will reboot the app. Seems to happen on the end of programs or on the half hour or hour. Also app does not stop when exiting. (Fire Stick) Needs shutdown. Thanks
1995-quality steaming 2/5
Glitchy app. Pops & gaps in the audio, random skipping, forgets where you stopped, etc. In the golden age of streaming there’s no excuse for an app to deliver quality this poor - especially if you have to watch the same 4 ads every 10 minutes.
App needs improvement 3/5
The app has been stalling. If I restart it, it sometimes goes back to the beginning of the episode. If I want switch between apps to answer a text or something during the commercial, it stops instead of playing. Why are some episodes locked? How do I get credits? Why is the 1st episode of a show locked, but I can watch the rest? Not such a good app.
Worst app ever 1/5
Very glitchy. Constantly having to restart the show and forcing you to watch the same ads over and over. Just torture. Not worth it!
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Keeps saying video playback error even though I’m logged in through my service provider. This app is so pointless. No point in even having this app if it won’t even work. Piece of useless garbage.
This app never works correctly. How does it have 4.3 stars?
Please fix the glitches! It freezes up and you miss parts of show!
Easy to find what I want to watch and easy to use.
Sound keeps cutting off and on 2/5
By Irish Mouse
While watching an episode of a tv show, the sound keeps cutting off and on. It only happens on the episode itself, never on a commercial.
What can I do to fix this?
Terrible for streaming and casting 2/5
Sometimes it worked (~30% of the time) but otherwise it had problems. When I would cast, it would frequently do random pauses while I watched my show and then disconnect entirely after about 5 minutes. Additionally, I couldn’t have volume all the way up because if I did it would send me messages every 30 seconds on the screen notifying me that my volume was the highest it could go. While not casting, it served its purposes well, although it did pause randomly a couple of times. Decided to use other apps instead because they don’t have these problems.
It’s a great app to have 5/5
It’s fine and I relay on it for my news source
This app is really good but their is one thing their is a lot of adds. Like I watch AGT on it and after every act there is a add. But I really like this app.
Very Poor Chromecast Connectivity 2/5
Since I use this to watch TV shows, I like to project them onto the Chromecast but this app takes forever to connect to the Chromecast. The app crashes when I unlock the phone to go the the next episode in the app. The app also does not load the episode the way Netflix or Hulu do while using Chromecast. Expect better from a company like NBC.
Was ok at first now garbage 1/5
Cannot log into provider, cannot even click or press link your provider, its like I’m not even touching it. Logged in via online site and still cant see live. 😡 go back to app hit live button in middle and grey picture xones up link you provider so annoying!
Can’t get live tv 2/5
It would be great if NBC would get a subscription service like CBS offers. You can’t watch live tv unless you have a provider. If I had a provider I would not even be looking into using your application. Please consider a subscription service so I can watch some of the shows not offered on the app such as Jeopardy. I will give five stars once I can watch Jeopardy.
By AMC 85
The C stands for CRASH. Or FREEZE. Or SKIP.
How can this app be so bad for so long?? TERRIBLE on iPad, iPhone, but ESPECIALLY APPLETV. Why can NBC not get there act together and fix this???
Good Grief!!! 1/5
Got this app to stay up to date with this awful virus that is affecting the whole world. If you want to watch commercials instead of the news, get this app! When the news plays, every 10 seconds or so the broadcast stops through the entire show. BUT ! the commercials run flawlessly! Good Grief!!! In this age of technology?! Really?!
Ads and credit 3/5
I kinda like it but I hate how many ads there are and that there are credits which in my opinion dumb because some people don’t have a tv provider but I guess it is ok
Just get Netflix. 1/5
I would have actually used this app if I didn’t need a TV provider. If I even had such a thing, I would not be getting the app on my phone. Why the hell does NBC put out an app if they are going to need a TV provider for it? That makes no sense! Just watch it on your TV then! This is the reason SO many people don’t have cable anymore...because its pointless and unreasonable. Just pay for streaming services. They are WAY cheaper, don’t require stupid TV providers and have SO MUCH CONTENT. NBC ISN’T ACTUALLY FREE if they require us to use a TV provider to watch episodes on the app...The CW doesn’t require that...CBS doesn’t either. Almost all other apps don’t. I hope NBC loses a LOT of money and becomes the next Blockbuster...because more and more people are cutting their cable.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is on here 5/5
B99 is on here so it makes the app great and also the only reason why I got it
Days of Our Lives 5/5
By always appropriate
Thank you thank you for making it
possible to watch our soap in full
I realize how important it is to be
kept informed about our crisis.
But because we are staying home
24 hours a day, it was nice to be
able to look forward to something
that made us happy. And unfortunately
our soap was preempted every day.
Thanks to the NBC app we are now
able to watch it in full.......(albeit on
a small screen)

Did someone actually get paid to create this? 1/5
This app is the most annoying, pathetic excuse for an app I can imagine. It constantly stops in the middle of playing episodes and says play back failed. Then you can’t fast forward past the part that it managed to play before it crashed so you just keep watching the same part over and over until you give up and go to bed. When I forget to DVR something, I want to cry because I know I’m in for an evening of frustration.
This app has been terrible each and every version. The video playback constantly crashes, whether playing directly on a device or streaming to an Apple TV. This happens across all devices, including an 11 Pro Max. This is new hardware with the latest iOS, not old hardware or software. Streaming from other providers, such as YouTube, Apple TV+, and Disney+ all work fine.
The problem is that when the video does crash, when you try to watch the episode again, it does not resume where you left off; it starts at the beginning, meaning sitting through the commercials every time.
I honestly cannot believe that NBC puts this app out and am shocked if people were paid for work on this app. Whatever they were paid was too much.
This is the channel!!!! 5/5
By fan for nbc
Best programming on the planet
Convenient for when a show is missed... 5/5
By carry e
Love the ability to watch a show if I missed a few episodes. Nice crisp video with some fuzzy frames infrequently. Occasionally some missed words but a lot better then fizzy TVO recordings offered in my area. Spoiled by video tech now.
TV GUIDE on line 1/5
This app does nothing more for me than tell me what is onwhen. NEVER shows an actual show. Useless. Deleting it.
Absolutely terrible - can’t play 30 seconds without glitch 1/5
By svetlana 2
Worthless. Somehow in this golden age of streaming and internet connectivity the NBC app can only play 10-30 seconds of an episode at a time before suffering some “playback error.” Give me a goddamn break. Everyone else can figure it out, why can’t you? Absolutely worthless, I’d rather not have the app at all than watch 20 seconds of a show I’m interested in just to get shunted off into the “playback error” fools game thereafter.
Needs work 3/5
I would prefer to have access to all episodes from the play page. I watched just a little of one episode and it froze. I backed out and when I went back to watch it had advanced an episode. It was not easy to find my place again. Keep working on it.
Can we get some variety in the ads? I don’t need to see the same stuff during every commercial break.
Amazon Firestick audio issues as well 2/5
Watching ‘Zoe’s Extraordinary Playlist’ which is totally my show right now and for a moment I got excited thinking I was just like Zoe and hearing music in my head but no— the audio is out of sync but weirdly plays twice so I can hear what is currently being played but also what is happening from a few minutes ahead in the episode...I’ve actually heard spoilers this way. The rewind/fast forward is also annoying—the ads repeat when I rewind and your closed caption varies too much.
Seems like a large company in the television movie media service could get an app right. The sound cuts out over and over and over and over and over and over and over........
PLAYBACK ERROR 1/5
Error! A playback error has occur.
This fkn message has me going fkn crazy. I’ve contacted ncb app and even after contacting them and following their recommended steps to solve the problem, 98% of the time don’t work.
I unlink my tv provider from all tv shows n sign out n then sign in n still don’t work. Fkn nbc, mfs got me fk up. Wasting my time.
NEGATIVE 0 STAR.
4 stars 4/5
By J. Balderas
Gave it four cause it has too many ads honestly.
Love It 5/5
By Sherp 2013
I downloaded this app for one show. Am able to watch it every week for free whenever my crazy schedule allows. Love it!
Days verses news updates 5/5
Why do they break in on days in the afternoon with breaking news. We are missing the story line. We are getting lost in the story. Very annoying for those of us who have watched the series for a long time. Please correct the time when you break in on channel 4. An hr later would not change the news. It will be there at 4:00pm
Worst Network App - Don’t Even Bother! 1/5
If you want to stream NBC shows without subscribing to a “provider” this app is not for you. There is no way to purchase credits or pay for content. After you watch 3 hours of “free” content (along with a truckload of ads) you are locked out.
On the other hand, CBS app does all of the above with ease.
Sometimes I have glitches but over all I’m not complaining I get to watch my shows
14 ads in the first 15 min of content. Thanks I’ll just go watch it on YouTube or literally anywhere else. This is why the networks are dying and they wil all certainly die. No thanks
Recently not working for me! Please help. 1/5
Over the past couple of weeks I haven’t been able to watch any shows using this app. When I try to log in to my provider it asks me if I want to use Dish. I click yes. At that point, things just end. Everything stays locked, which means I can’t watch anything. I even got my sister to try it on her phone. She has a different cable provider. It still doesn’t work for her either. I can turn on my TV and log in using my fire stick and I have no problem at all. These are all problems that haven’t been happening until recently. I don’t know if it matters (or if this review will even be read), but my Bravo app is doing the same thing. Thanks!
The app has become utterly useless with one of the latest updates because I can’t input my TV provider. Without that I cant watch anything.
not so great 2/5
Quickly discovered I needed to subscribe to unlock 3 shows. As with all apps that involve showing TV reruns there always comes that time when they ask for money through a subscription.
Really Cool 4/5
By Ty. Dell
It’s a really cool app but my only problem is how fast it runs out of credits to watch what you want otherwise it is exactly what I was looking for.
Can’t even connect to cell data. 1/5
It’s a trash app, and it’s a trash website that forces you to download this trash app that doesn’t work unless you tap left hand corner of your screen, while singing Taylor swift, while hold the volume down button, while staring into the back camera! Trash trash trash
Love it 5/5
Love Zoey extraordinary playlist
Im not sure if the show adds the advertisements but there is way to many in each episode of every show i watched on nbs
