Disappearing Content 3/5
I downloaded the NBC app about 1 year ago. Due to personal reasons, I hadn’t watched much tv for a number of years, and I was interested in catching up on some of the shows I’d missed. The app itself works ok aside from a tendency to forget my cable subscription info, forcing me to reinstall the app in order to watched “locked” content (this bug may be corrected now as I haven’t had to reinstall in over a week). I left the app for a time out of frustration, & it now seems that some of the shows I’d been watching have been moved to the Peacock app & placed behind a paywall. It’s a darned shame.
What’s Going on with Your Apple TV Version of Apps 2/5
Ok NBC... why are the Apple TV version of your family of apps giving me loading problems when I try to watch shows. It’s getting to the point that I LITERALLY have to delete and reload the app in order to watch a show. This is only happening on the Apple TV version. Now I love the app but the Apple TV version has to do better. Once all the apps are fixed (NBC, Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC) all of them, my rating will be higher. This just started around the holidays of 2020.
Horrible app 1/5
This app does not allow you to pause during a show if you have to answer a call and be able to return where you left off in the show. The app has to be closed out, reopened and pick the show again before you can get back to what you were watching. I always get error messages in the middle of watching a show that playback failed. Again, close the app and come back and start watching the show again. So tired I f not being able to watch things without all of the issues.
I am really enjoying being able to stream shows. I can’t watch every episode when it is on and this allows me to see the show almost like a movie!
It’s an ok app 3/5
I love a lot of shows that this app has to offer. But I don’t like that you have to link your tv provider. If you are watching on a computer if you don’t have your add/pop-up blocker off the site crashes a lot. Another thing I hate is it has way to many commercials. Most streaming services don’t have you watch 10 minutes of commercials per episode.
When it works it’s great! 4/5
This app stops in the middle of a show all the time. Sometimes it works for a good while then it stops. Fix the bug please! BTW internet connection is not the issue. Run over 600 MB 99.9% of the time.
Great show ,love the characters ......the only thing is being asked if you like the show & to write a review ......how about during a commercial would be much better .
Crashes ALL THE TIME 2/5
This app crashes more times than not. I have to restart it frequently. Often get an error message as well!
By amanda 22222222
There’s a problem w playback on the mobile ap and I’ve contacted abc about it and received no reply. Some episodes work so it’s not a problem w my service provider. It would be nice if someone could get back to me
Days of our Lives 5/5
By Kings Smoking Gun
This show is the best daytime show of all time. I have been watching it for 30 plus years.
So many adds 1/5
By confirmed user 30000
The app has a nice UI however, when you want to watch a show, say, buck Rogers or Knight Rider, you get an overwhelming amount of commercials. It opens with a commercial before you can watch any of the show, then they have the intro to the show with the music etc, followed by 3or more commercials. And that’s before the show even starts. I realize the app is free to download, but having to sit through commercials for things I don’t want is not something I’m going to endure. I not sure how any of the current series of shows are because they don’t interest me. Download at your own risk, you will have far fewer ads if you just watch them live on the tv or through a Hulu subscription.
Love to catch up on shows 5/5
I love that I can watch my shows on my phone!
Worst Network App! 1/5
Freezes continually on my iPhone, forcing me to back out and then reload at least once every thirty minutes. It randomly decides I am not authorized to watch content that I am authorized to watch. The only fix is for me to completely log out of my cable account and then re-login so that NBC will sync up again. This happens at least once a week! Get your act together NBC!
Has issues 1/5
If I switch between apps and come back to it I get to watch it for two seconds and then it stalls or closes on me I have to completely close the app from my phone to be able to start where I left off and sometimes even when I do that and open the app there are times where recently watched shows doesn’t even show up other times I will click on the recently watched to resume where I left off and it will start from the beginning instead of starting where I left off there’s a lot of bugs that need fixing
Update for IPhone-Problem viewing 3/5
By AB new york
With the updateHolding your phone vertical only 1/2 the screen has a picture, landscape works fine. Watching on a cell phone not an iPad most of the time is in a vertical position. Please update this problem
Too many commercials. I know it’s revenue but can’t you use the shorter commercials? I have seen them on other platforms.
Essentially Useless – Not All Seasons 2/5
By We are the music makers
Even once you login with your TV provider, the app only allows you to stream the most recent season of a show (at least all the ones I tried). Which would be fine if you only wanted that season, but not if you want to look into a series or watch from the beginning. So don’t bother with this unless you only plan on catching up on a few recent episodes. For that, it earns its 2 stars.
NBC App will not play some show’s videos on my iPad...? 1/5
By Sammy SD
What is the problem here? Just shows an error message?
The worst 1/5
Glitches out and freezes constantly then just won’t let you sign in after it signs you out.
The Apple TV app always locks up and crashes it’s a huge waste of time
My opinion 3/5
If it weren’t for the fact that I am hooked on OLTL I wouldn’t tune you in at all. I have stopped watching due to the fake of the tv stations and all the FAKE NEWS they spread. They are at large responsibly for a lot of this great nations falling apart. You should be ashamed and may God have pity on you.
Oh NBC... 2/5
I grew up on NBC. I generally love their shows, from Seinfeld to Superstore. That “ding-ding-ding” is a sound I like. However, this app is disappointing. Why? Because I cannot pay to use it or to not be bothered by commercials. I am a millennial, I have come to love that for 3-5$ dollars more a month I don’t have to watch commercials. Plus a subscription cost, perhaps you can fund some shows that have been cancelled that have a strong following, like giving us some form of closure on Dracula or Emerald City. By subscribing, to the NBC app, you can offer the news or sports as an added bonus. Alas, I can watch NBC news without any subscription. Which is great on your part NBC but as an app business model it’s not ideal. People like watching Nightly News. Additionally, if you want to stream original programming, just allowing people to subscribe at a cost can help fund aforementioned original programs. I had to login, with my mother’s Cable account in order to use the app. Which is annoying, and should be unnecessary as regular TV is dying in most city areas. I would’ve paid 5-7$ a month just to watch NBC (WITH commercials 🙄) and I would’ve paid because it’s the only place to find some programs I love. C’mon NBC, it’s 2021. You should focus on your streaming platform, I thoroughly enjoy Peacock, why aren’t all of your shows on peacock!? I have to use two NBC applications ...
Could be better 1/5
The NBC app would be better if users that do not have cable service providers to link could still enjoy episodes of TV shows. Users that do not pay for cable should be able to sign up for a monthly fee or pay for seasons /individual episodes of the shows to unlock them. Not everyone has pay TV.
App is horrible 1/5
By h yo ti
The app keeps restarting
By manny 305
It was really bad, as it was getting frozen every two seconds. So I couldn’t enjoy watching my show at I had to stop watching the show. Hope they can fix this clinch.
Great App! 5/5
By Hooked on Butterflies
I love having the NBC app! Mostly, because I can watch shows on my phone that I miss and when it’s convenient to me!
Freezes frames/Skips scenes/no rewind 1/5
The app would be fine, but it does not allow you to rewind. It froze, then skipped a whole scene, and then would not let me rewind it to watch it. Tried several times but it automatically advanced to a certain point every time.
I can watch the shows I like when I like. If I miss one, I can go back to that date and pick up where I left off. Love it!
My Favorite App 5/5
NBC has the best shows on TV to date. Starting with the 3 C’s. Chicago Med Chicago Fire Chicago PD which is my favorite.
By Afrothunder :)
Too many comericals.
By sonya in GA
I don’t know, nor do I care about your issues with my tv provider, but I am so tired of not being able to watch my shows that are on NBC. I’m to the point of removing y’all from viewing list and finding new shows to watch! I’m over it!
Upset about no sound 1/5
By Fancy Nancy 9
I’ve used your nbc app to watch days of our lives for a long time. The sound has always worked. Now it looks different. I can get the CC button to wok and read what they are saying but the sound button will not work. This is overnight.
Oh, I’m on my iPad. I use it when I have to miss a day on the TV.
CAN YOU HELP ME?
Shuts down every few minutes
What’s even the point? 1/5
What’s even the point of having this app? I’ve had an Apple TV for 3 years now and not once has the NBC app worked. Mind you, I’ve reset things, I’ve done system updates, everything. It’s as if there’s someone working at NBC who is so upset with their lack of a purpose in this life that they made it their sole goal to make something so bad that maybe, just maybe they will be remembered for something. Even if that something is horrible, at least they’ll be remembered. I would rather have to break up with my ex again that try and use any kind of NBC service again.
Lots of commercial 1/5
Each has a link if you want to learn more!
NBC vs Fox 1/5
Fox streams 4k with no issue. NBC buffers hd video. Why?
Update, watching ABC's broadcast of the Ravens @ Titans and no buffering.
To summarize I can watch the NFL on Fox in 4k, HD NFL on ABC with no buffering. NBC, you need to hire better tech people.
They sell your personal information !! And unless you live in California there’s no way to opt out
The best! 5/5
Love This Is Us!
Your app for watching live football is awful. I have Comcast and it freezes all the time.
It’s although this app is designed to hide the content except for what they’re trying to promote. Very hard to find the live football game they paid millions of dollars to broadcast. Absolutely nowhere anywhere on the app except going into live tv and clicking on “news” lol.
Won’t stay linked, won’t work on all episodes 1/5
Works, then doesn’t. So frustrating.
Thank you 5/5
I love that I can watch days on nbc app.
Totally messed up 2/5
By James J 1984
This app is totally messed up I’m trying to use the lifestream and I can’t seem to do it they keep saying my TV provider has blocked me from using this app I called them up and they said that we never did that so I tried to get in touch with NBC but I can’t seem to get in touch with these guys I tried to use the emails and everything else and it doesn’t do any good this app is totally worthless💰💰💰💰💰🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🎩🎩🎩🎩
I have this app just because of Zoeys EP 5/5
By Dena Lagonia
I absolutely love this beautiful show and love this app for allowing me to catch up when life gets in the way
Keying episodes 1/5
How is something locked when it aired 08/2020? Your shows unluck a week after they air.
Open season 5 of RH of Potomac.
Please and thank you.
App is embarrassingly awful 1/5
For a company as large as NBC Universal, this app is embarrassingly awful. It randomly makes you re-authenticate your TV provider, the video pauses and skips every so often (Dateline: Betrayal of Sara Stern) and when you go into picture in a picture mode it pauses the video (yet when you go from PIP to full screen no issue). Additionally the app randomly just quits when transitioning between commercials and from commercials back to programming - no warning just quits. Food for thought: this is the “FREE” product and I say free loosely because you’re paying for it as it requires a tv provider to access. They’re trying to push a premium Peacock product but if this app is this terrible - you’re not selling me on spending any more money on your content.
They totally scammed us Netflix users 1/5
I only downloaded this app to watch The Office because they ended the contract on Netflix. Now the app takes up data for one show
Way too many commercials 1/5
If you have all the time in the world to sit thru ads this is the app for you
Do you have sports 5/5
I am 8 and I like sports so do you have sports🏈
