the most recent update really messed this app up 1/5
last week the app updated and i’ve noticed some changes such as the livestream doesn’t mirror anymore,it airplays.the problem wit that’s the airplay doesn’t work correctly.it turns your tv screen gray now.sometimes you can hear the audio in the background and sometimes you can’t but you can’t see the picture at all.this app’s so disappointing now and i will be uninstalling it very soon unless this issue’s fixed.i only installed it because of the airplay/mirroring so if i can’t use them i have no further use for this app.it also constantly crashes
Audio doesnt work 1/5
Why doesnt the audio reliably come through?
iPad-live-no sound 2/5
A month? Ago…and despite trying many things; the app decided not to have sound when playing live tv. Sooooo frustrating.
I was watching Chucky on there and I watched three episodes so all of my credits were gone so I linked my TV provider and it didn’t let me watch anything at all.
1 star 1/5
By Sully Henderson
Glitchy, Needs work 2/5
The site is great for getting NBC shows, although most are available and easier to get elsewhere. The NBC app is very glitchy — it freezes or shows a black screen a lot, or it takes you to a show other than the one you selected. Reloading doesn’t help these problems, problems I don’t have on other viewing apps.
Horrible app 1/5
By as hc
This app has always had major issues, notably! If your mirroring to a tv the app freezes up on commercials. You need to shut it all the way down, plus shut your tv down to get it off the frozen commercial. Now if your watching on full screen on you phone and you go to Picture in Picture. When you try to go back to full screen the video is not on the screen and can not be moved to the screen. Again you have to close the app and go back into it to go back to full screen viewing. Like they built this app with the same mindset as their news coverage, don’t worry about quality or facts just get it out to the consumer no matter how wrong it is!
I use this app daily and I always have issues with it. In the most recent update I have to turn my phone off silent to get the sound to work (which I didn’t have to do before) and it won’t do the screen in screen feature anymore. I’ve closed the app multiple times and even deleted it and reloaded a few times. There are other issues with pausing, crashing when I try to go to my local channel, etc. I’m so over it. I don’t have any more time to put into this. You guys are a HUGE COMPANY. Why can’t you get it right?? So frustrating. Maybe stop focusing only on the Peacock app and work on this one instead. 👎🏼👎🏼
New app not working 2/5
This new version of nbc for live feed either doesn’t work at all or has no audio. Please keep improving it!
Crappy app 1/5
Downloaded app last night. Working fine. Tonight……..NOTHING wants to play!😩
The episodes repeat each time. You have to close out the app to get it to go to the next episode.
No longer works 1/5
By red 1224
It says they updated the App 3 days ago. The icon went from a white background to a black background and ever since it doesn’t work. I used the app everyday to watch my local news followed by the Today show. Now, the video and sound NEVER load. Can you fix the APP if you even bother reading the reviews!!!!
Absolute trash 1/5
Will not allow mirroring via Apple TV. When not mirrored, it plays the videos just fine… but while mirroring it will freeze during the NBC logo presentation. Also, after linking our tv provider, the app constantly gives errors saying we’re not viewing in the correct region of the country.
Constant issues 1/5
App constantly has issues from not connecting to tv provider to live not loading or crashing. Deleted it, not worth the aggravation.
PIP works but returning to full screen it can’t do. 2/5
By Hoodrat AK
PIP works to shrink while checking a text or reading an email but returning to full screen is bad. PIP closes before the end of the show.
Commercials seem more frequent.
Fix it for an updated review or not
App doesn’t work ever
horrible app 1/5
By rylee moor
this app is horrible you can never watch it on your tv because it never works bruh like wth that’s very annoying .
Frustrating that periodically I have to delete and reinstall because app doesn’t recognize cable login. The only app out of several in which this occurs.
App is glitchy. There is a delay in audio going from Show to Ads to Show. So your watching the ads but hearing the audio for the show.
A huge rating symbol covers a large portion of the screen 1/5
For the entire duration of a show a huge rating symbol in the upper left corner covers a large portion of the screen when using this app on my Apple TV (latest model). It’s large enough that it often covers speaking characters entire face. Please functionally test your apps before releasing them. It’s not all about unit tests and automated UI tests, you must use your product as a real user would.
Update: the show I’m watching just came back from commercial and now there are *two* rating symbols in the upper left corner, one about 2/3 the size of the other.
Needs to Re-connect All the Time 1/5
It’s frustrating when this app has to be re-connected by signing in all the time. All my other apps don’t need that. It’s also very fidgety on working properly. With all that NBC $ one would think the app would be properly useable.
No enough service 2/5
So I’m writing this review. As I have cut cable tv off and just using app. I’m a little upset that I can’t watch the News or shows I want with like a subscription like other providers. Also it’s a little ridiculous that you only give one free news option to watch live, nothing else unless you have a provider this isn’t included some of the tv shows I can watch. I chosen to stop using cable as I travel a lot and have to go out of the country and using my subscription is easier and less expensive. And I can watch on the go with my phone, tablet, or computer… Now I’m losing out on a lot of my shows I love and update with my favorite New anchor because I don’t have a Service Provider!! Please NBC do better and come up with a subscription option that give everyone what they want with out a service provider.
Stream for News Nows 2/5
I try to stream the News Now channel though chromecast when Meet the Press Daily comes on at 4pm. It never works! Always ends up streaming the basic NewsNow program that’s basically on loop all day instead of the actual Meet the Press program. It’s infuriating especially since this is strictly a STREAM CHANNEL!
My fave network 5/5
By Nancy P CBUS
For life. SNL, The Today Show, must see TV
Today show 4/5
Loved watching yesterday’s Today show
I like your AP! 5/5
By Burt66 Reynolds66
Your shows Are Great! I wish the shows didn’t lock you out after a certain date? Thanks Again!
Could be better 2/5
I’m very disappointed in the app lately. It is always giving me issues with playing shows, cutting out, telling me I’ve watched a show but I hadn’t and not letting me replay it. I pay a ton of money for streaming apps and this one is not the best. Could go through some improvements.
Buffering, Stalling, and then nothing 1/5
This app buffers for sooo long and the show never plays
Would be if it didn’t crash so often 3/5
By P in SATx
Crashes often & when it comes back up it doesn’t start where it left off. Also you have to search for the show to look at different seasons unlike Hulu which has the show at the start so it allows you to pick an episode… this app has the most recent show on the home page. When you click on it you’re taken directly to the episode and not the show itself.
NBC news 1/5
By Nel sweet as Jel
Keeps lagging 👎🏼
Poor quality 1/5
Doesn’t work very well at all!
Live tv always glitching 2/5
Every time I try to watch live tv it always says “something went wrong” and asks to retry and even when hitting retry option or deleting app and restarting its hit or miss. Very frustrating especially for a company with the resources of NBC unacceptable
I love this app 5/5
By Zonian -4- ever
I love streaming my favorite NBC shows. When I get interrupted at home or work I can always pause or rewind my shows which I love that feature.
Worst in class 1/5
By Stephen G.
This app will not in any way allow you to stream live broadcasts from the main NBC channel (Have paid service through U-verse.
No permite ver capítulos nuevos, aún estando enlazado con el proveedor de cable
Easy Watching 5/5
The shows I watch are sometimes interrupted by important phone calls. Pause works great and I can pick up where I left off.
New shows 1/5
Unless you have direct tv you can’t watch current shows.
Chicag fire 5/5
By b mae mae
Love the show
Point of paying? 2/5
I subscribed for two shows, Chicago Med and Chicago Fire. Now I discovered I can’t watch even with payment unless I have a TV provider. If I had that I would watch without paying NBC. SO where is the benefit of paying to watch?
App unavailable abroad 1/5
By Goal D
When I travel abroad, I can’t use the NBC app. SMH
I need help 1/5
By King air forces
Your stuff is not working like it will say sorry error has occurred please try reinstating you continue to experience issue then they say I should contact you, so that’s why I’m contacting you for
TV Provider link fails to launch 1/5
By NYC Viewer
Cannot link TV Provider. Can’t livestream or watch new episodes. NBC staff doesn’t care. Fix the TV Provider link ASAP, you’re losing your viewers to other networks! No one at NBC ever bothers to read these or respond.
Provide a phone number. No one wants to email a dead email in box.
Oldest fan! 5/5
Been a SNL watcher from the first show. Was pretty religious about it. As a single mom, it was my treat every week. Then somehow lost my way with children and such for a few years. Thankfully with dvr’s I was back! Never missed an episode except when I thought it got stupid for a period of time (like about for eight years), now here I am again. I’m reminded of the good old days of Gilda and the original crew and am happy to see many of my favorites still there!
The programming is as it used to be when it was so good; the characters never grow old, and I implore you to keep on keeping on! It’s funny to have invested so much of my youth to a tv program. I’m 72 and will not miss another episode cause, frankly, I have little else to do. Thank you, thank you for the joy and tears of laughter over the years!
PS, could you bring back the land shark every once in a while?

Waste of time 1/5
I watch football on the app weekly, but for about a month now I haven’t been able to even log into my cable provider to use the app. Extremely frustrating considering I pay money for that access, not my cable providers fault but I wish NBC would get it together
NBC App is disappointing! 2/5
Inconsistent! This App Always bumps me to the NOn Stop NEws! I wanted to watch Kelly Clarkson and was only able to see clips! BOO ! Fix it please!
By RLN 1964
I luv this new show. This is a true winner. Please make more episodes
NBC26WGBA of Green Bay or NBC TV 4 News WTMJ of Milwaukee 5/5
By Max Tegen
I Really love this NBC streaming app for ALL shows from Live TV By tracking it with time and always stay up to date on
NBC26 WGBA TV Network channel station Green Bay Wisconsin Area TV channel 26 News with Appleton and Sturgeon Bay to include NBC TV 4 WTMJ of Milwaukee especially the updated headlines with News weather and Sports for everything from Northeast and East Central regions or even the Southeast to ALWAYS get covered by 26 News of WGBA right in Green Bay or Milwaukee Wisconsin from TMJ4 News today at 5:00 to 6 in the Early Morning and 12:00High Noon including 4:00 to 5:00 and 6:00 or even 10:00 News to end everyday each week
If I pay for peacock premium, it should allow access to this app! 1/5
It’s inexcusable that I have to pay for full cable to access content from this app, particularly when most of it is OTA or through Peacock.
The only thing I care about is the occasional soccer game not on Peacocks or OTA which I’m already patting enough for without adding a $50+ cable subscription.
Get your act together Universal or you’ll lose a lot more customers. Splitting related content (like soccer games) across multiple sources each requiring separate subscriptions is wrong and will make your customers leave.
Impossible to access 2/5
By I am way too awesome 4u
I am ready to pay to watch Telemundo but the NBC app does not provide any payment options, only three free viewings. Very disappointing!
