Good to have access 4/5
Good to have access to my favorite show since my satellite company and local stations are in dispute forever!! However, I wish I could find a way to fast forward through commercials!!
Have to link to cable provider EVERY time I use the app 2/5
It’s frustrating that I can not quickly access a show I would like to stream because for some reason it prompts me to link my cable provider, which it already has the information stored in the app settings, and wait for it to realize that I have jumped through this hoop already before I can start streaming. Other than that, the app works as expected. I am operating the latest version of IOS on an iPhone if that has any bearing on the app’s performance.
I’ve had nothing but trouble since switching over to this app. My shows won’t play, the app won’t work/load half the time. It’s been absolutely annoying to deal with.
this app can be cool, but almost all of the episodes are locked. in order to unlock them you have to sign in, but you only get three credits. you can also hook up to your TV provider and get three more. i recently started watching manifest, and the first episode was unlocked. it left off on a cliffhanger so i was soooo excited to get to the next episode and it was LOCKED. then the next like 13 were too because i had to watch episode 14, the first unlocked one i came across, and hope i didn't miss anything too important. which i did. i don't understand why you would lock all the episodes, and only get 6 credits at the most. you would never be able to finish a show and most kids that watch on here have no idea who their Tv provider is. i think it's a stupid app don't waste your money on it.
The worst app I have ever used! Frustrating!!! 1/5
The worst app I have ever used. Every time I open it, it asks for my provider info. EVERY TIME! And that’s only the first serious complaint. Only the commercials play without constant buffering. Every 30 seconds it buffers during the NBC programs... the further into a show, the more it buffers! I don’t even experience buffering with any other TV app anymore... just the ones owned by NBC. It’s been like this for years now. Every app NBC has its hand in... Bravo, etc. buffers continually on Apple TV. Truly inexcusable from a very big corporation. I no longer respect NBC.
Little bugs 4/5
I am so happy for the app because I’ve been in the hospital for 2 months and missed the the last month of all the series I watch.
The only issue I’ve found is that it’s clear sailing through an episode only to have it stop and lose up to 8 seconds of dialogue. This never happens during commercials only shows.
Thanks for giving me something to do while I’m recuperating.
It’s useable 2/5
It’s useable but all the adds are stupid. I got over 20 adds for one episode which is repugnant. Why be greedy
Best Shows 5/5
Of the major channels NBC has the best TV shows of all.
This NBC App provides me with the shows that I had to miss. I love it.
Aspect Ratio 3/5
By Nickname is Used Already
I watch live national news (6:30Pm) on my iPad and when I put it on horizontal it does not display a HD aspect ratio. It cuts off the screen similar to playing SD on an HD TV full screen. This needs to be fixed. The aspect ratio is fine when iPad is vertical however I have to look at tv listings below it. Please fix.
NBC app 4/5
By dfc in kansas
I love the app, I can watch NBC when my local NBC channel is off the air, however I do not like the fact that I cannot fast forward through the commercials.
Not happy with Nexstar taking myNBC away 1/5
Not happy with Nexstar taking my nbc away in direct tv so I have to watch some of my shows on the app. I just don’t understand why if it’s free online and free with an antenna why you are trying to gauge directv which eventually makes them raise their prices hence making me pay for something that I can get for free- shame on you!
Problem has occurred 1/5
By Ulesa N
My app keeps saying an error has occurred!!!!
I love this app. 4/5
The app allows me to watch episodes I have missed on tv.
Would be awesome if I could actually have a subscription... 2/5
My family can’t afford cable, we just use streaming services... I used the app to watch Heroes (one of my all-time FAVORITE shows, I couldn’t believe they had it on the app, as it’s really old, let alone all of the seasons), but when I got to like the 4th episode it said I had to put in my cable information. I looked around and couldn’t find anything allowing me to purchase a subscription. I would seriously pay for this stuff, great shows on here. But there’s no options for subscriptions unless you pay for it through your cable provider. Get with the times NBC, HBO does it, so why can’t you? And taking back The Office when you guys know people won’t be able to watch the content they love on Netflix because you want to somehow make better bank through the cable companies? Really? Not impressed
What did you do??? 2/5
Every day at 6:30 I open this app to catch the evening news while I’m wrapping up at work. Gotta make sure we aren’t at war with someone. Today I opened the newly updated app and I’m looking at Housewives of Beverly Hills. Ugh, what did you do? I see all the other “networks of NBC” but not just my local NBC station. Can I not watch it anymore? I noticed you didn’t broadcast the first story on Facebook Live today either. Are you not showing that program online anymore?
Update 7/10 - Well, the local station comes on now - it still says “Housewives...” but I can see the news. Or I could. Now, nothing comes up. I can tell every time you update this app, it all stops working. Do app developers get paid by the number of updates they make to their app. STOP updating it, it worked fine before you started messing with it.
This use to be one of my favorite shows but what happened to it being AMERICAS got talent. It seems all the contestants are from a different country....
I’m paying my bill 1/5
By Artifacts disappear
Which is supposed to Include NBC. But apparently, Nexstar is unhappy with AT&T so none of the tampa legitimate subscribers can see NBC. I got the app hoping to see NBC programming, but clearly that doesn’t work either.
Here’s hoping that NBC execs will get their distributors in line quickly or else we just cut the final string holding us to NBC programming.
NBC App 4/5
By aka mikaylas mom
For the most part I enjoy this app. Sometimes I experience glitches and can’t play videos. This is why NBC gets a 4 star rating.
Enjoying it 5/5
I love it because NBC gives me all the series I watch
NBC live stream 1/5
I tried to look at livestream but it didn’t work because it said I was disconnected and i retry and it did not work so what’s wrong with it?
Help me please 4/5
I am trying to get the song closing time by jake wells and Natalie Brady from 2018. Don’t know how to get it 😢
Hardly can wait.... 5/5
By It's aMee
Errors!! Please stop coming up with “an Error has occurred!!” Am anxious and can hardly wait to see more!!
Thank You for making “Bring The Funny!!”
Stick with ABC 1/5
Can’t even download after getting a response back from nbc
Really like this app 5/5
I enjoy watching days of our lives evenings when I miss it during the day. This really works well for me Thanks This really means a lot to me with my schedule I enjoy leisurely watching days at night. Thanks so much
The app freezes randomly and then skips part of the show. It will also pause and then I can’t get it to replay without exiting and opening again. Sometimes when you rewind a little to get it to play it randomly plays commercials when it shouldn’t.
I get that there has to be profit from advertising... but over 5 ads every break? That’s absurd. Easily the biggest TV scam app out there.
Still need to pirate shows 1/5
They have a ton of ads but they still won’t let you watch old shows unless you pay for a cable subscription. Might as well just get your shows off BitTorrent
This app is great but... 3/5
I love using this to watch shows, but I don’t have a TV provider (my family uses antenna) and I find it frustrating that episodes of throwback shows that I like (such as House) are locked. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good app.
I can’t put my phone Down when I am watching NBC the queen of the south is my favorite movie actually my favorite show can’t wait for them to get more episodes
Redesign is Absolutely Terrible 1/5
Is this ap that was recently redesigned a joke? Screen just freezes. Every. Single. Time. If this ap isn’t fixed I will be discontinuing useage. Thank goodness ABC, CBS and Netflix work extremely well!
Problem Fixed 5/5
Thank you for fixing the issue and for responding. All is well!
I like the app but. 5/5
I like the app but I can’t seem to see so of the first season of most series. I love to start from season 1 and go until the very end but instead I have to start from the middle of a series like season 3 or 7 and it’s a little frustrating. But other then that love the new lay out and new networks that I get to see now
Won’t work on Apple TV devices 1/5
Before newer updates version, Apple TV devices no problems with linking to TV provider of mine. After updated on Apple TV devices, my TV Provider with Hulu signed and there’s Hulu logo on top right corner of TV. When clicked one of shows and pop up message said
An Error Has Occurred
Sorry, your TV provider has discontinued access to NBC video on this device.
What’s going on?
I’m able to watching NBC app on iPad device so I have to airplay to my Apple TV device to view on big TV.
The support for this app is consistently differing first they tell me I don’t have to have a cable provider then to watch live shows/streaming they say you need to have a cable provider. I used to be able to watch NBC OTA but recently moved to a new area out of range from NBC affiliates-I used to like some of their shows was hoping to watch on the app but after the response from their support - I could be watching FOX (but that’s not much of a better option.) Now I know why I cut the cable - this app is one of them.
By NBC Fan68
Love this app..get to catch up on my daily shows I miss and watch all my “soaps” on here during my lunch break at work!
Never Works Anymore! 1/5
I have been a loyal fan of Days of Our Lives since 1978. There has been very few episodes I’ve missed. This app was an answer to my prayers as sometimes I took my lunch break to watch it live or on demand. For the past month, I’ve not been able to watch one episode. Today, it actually says there is nothing streaming today. I’m extremely upset with this. Everything new is not always better. Please fix this!!!!!!
Can’t view programming 1/5
The same is happening for the new Bravo app. It will let me sign in with my Sling account but then says that non of the channels are in my package. this is occurring in all of the NBC apps that are in this new rollout. Older versions work fine. please fix
It need improvement 3/5
By Addis Shimelis
It could be better
Great new version 5/5
By retired workaholic
Love this app
Love this app 5/5
I have to work when my shows come on so am thankful that I can watch them on demand after I get off work. Thanks for adding more shows
Limited availability 3/5
I wish shows that are locked wouldn’t even appear as options. I can only watch unlocked shows.
I do not have cable and it appears that’s something I need to be able to really use this app. The shows that are unlocked are really great. I can get through the commercials after all it is free. However most of the shows ARE locked and the message to push here to unlock shows does nothing. I would love to know how to unlock. I don’t want cable. Thanks
Great but... 4/5
By hot blonde55
This is my favorite app thus far, it’s one of the few that you can watch shows without cable. I don’t have cable and I wish you could unlock more shows. It’s sad that watching is not available to everyone.
However this is the best app for more options of great tv shows...really do like it, I watch what I can without cable.
Terrible update 1/5
By Jhas H
I never had issues with the NBC app or any of the apps of the other networks that are affiliated with them until the update. I can no longer watch live tv on any of them, I keep getting the notification that “the channel is not a part of my cable package,” even when I try to watch the local channel. I try to link and re-link my cable provider and that does not work, it’s as if it is not recognizing it. I hope the developers address these issues ASAP because from the other reviews it looks like I am not the only one having issues. I’m only giving one star because I am being forced to. The update ruined the apps.
*swearing* USELESS BUT WORSE 1/5
By Laura luv
Deadly Class... great show another ruined and cancelled by NBC JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER GOOD SHOWS THEY CANCEL... but aside from the network itself and more pointed to the app itself: the rant I left below is still 100% correct, I have to say, I’d pay for a paid service &/or a premium channel instead ALL DAY ANYDAY.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND DONT WAIT FOR NBC TO CHANGE ANYTHING NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS. Skip the aggravation. There’s plenty of free services and channels out there. TV/Entertainment is supposed to relax and entertain and maybe make you cry or think.... not drive you to the point of insanity just trying to use it.
An average show contains 40-45 mins showtime plus 15/20 minutes add time. With this app you will spend whole night trying to watch 45 minutes of tv time, all filled in with restarting, reconnecting, rewatching add after add after add, watch 2 minutes, repeat. I REFUSE to use this more than irritating app again for ANYTHING, and I mean ANYTHING! It’s taken me all week to watch 3 episodes.
“How are you enjoying the app? Feedback?” Shows up all the time but they don’t care, they don’t listen, nothing changes as many time as you fill that form out.
If you’re looking for 45 minutes of restarting and rewatching commercials, this app is for you (even if you’re a cable subscriber, can’t imagine the poor quality you receive for those who don’t) but DO NOT REWIND, pause, fast forward.... sheeeeeet don’t even breathe (and sometimes that’s not even enough and suddenly your phone is a playing a completely different part or ep on your phone but continues on your TV.... that is until you try to stop one of the other aaaaaaand then, you’re starting at the beginning of the episode and to get back where you were, ya might as well take a shower while you wait for the commercials to all play again) MOST WORTHLESS APP IVE EVER HAD! AND ITS SAD BC I LIKE NBC! 😔😔😔😔
It promised 4 free shows... 1/5
I only got to watch 2 out of the 4 free shows that I was promised when I downloaded the app. No explanation! The app crashed 15 times in 1 day. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME DOWNLOADING!!!!!!
You can’t fast forward 1/5
By Ross the.... Ross
You can’t fast forward, which is really annoying because if you press the pause button or take a break the entire video starts over, and you have to watch everything including the ads all over again. It always makes you start over from the beginning with no way to get back to where you were. The app freezes and crashes too, and the ads happen at the worst times.
Buggy as hell 1/5
The app crashes a lot. Video jumps around. Also, NBC is free to air. Why do I need a cable subscription to use this app?
