    Can't get to the Olympic summer games in person in 2020? No worry. Simply download this app and you will have the Olympic games right on your phone or tablet. It's a simple and fun way to cheer on your favorite team from anywhere.

    Please post the players scorecard after they finish the hole as well as their score for the day along with their overall score on the leaderboard. That would really help show how the player is trending that day

    What the hell ? Henley Has been leading all day and what nobody pays any attention to him? Jun 19, 2021

    By Pat
    So the leader Henley, Who is lead the entire day at Torrey pines in San Diego… Gets no attention from the announcers, no attention from the Networc as if he’s nobody… He’s been winning this round the entire day and they focus on everybody else except him for what reason?

    Beyond Frustrating to deal with Jun 10, 2021

    I cant keep it logged in for extended periods of time. It logs out mid stream and in between watching. It is terrible for personal use as well as business use. It happens at work constantly. Glad PGA Tour is moving to ESPN next season. NBC Sports app is worthless.

    The video is good, not great, I just like the fact they bring me motorcycle racing. Thank you! I wish the replays would post sooner. And, I would like to stop, fast forward and reverse the live play.

    Decent app. Struggles with casting (quality/reliability). Pretty much always figuring out a different way to display it on a TV, other than casting. Also, for the money, I feel like what you get could be better. I'm invested in hoping that it does improve (golf content specifically), so I won't cancel. This is a great direction for golf coverage - I sometimes enjoy this more, due to the terrible state of commentating & often dumb player coverage choices on TV. Faldo & Feherty are soo bad.

    Subpar. Overly complex navigation. Show me what I pay for rather than having me scroll through a bunch of locked junk. PGA pass is ok but if it's on TV those events are excluded. No LPGA. It's a different league but it would put more content here and give a larger audience. Sometimes I just want to see golf. I don't care whose swinging.
  • Australian cycling pass ?? Sep 2, 2019

    By subtropical_ken
    I haven’t cut the cable yet so I can watch most nbc content on directv. But I did get the cycling pass to watch things others than the TDF and to watch it ad-free. No offense to the knowledgeable Aussie fellows who prattle on continually in the ad-free version but I was hoping for Bob Roll and Phil Liggett, et al. It seems stupid (and perhaps a bit misleading?) on nbc’s part to pay another set on commentators when they could just have other content or vignettes during the commercials. My hat is off to the aussies who can keep up a conversation for 3 to 4 hours though. I guess millennials like that stuff. The TV feed comes from the one source anyway and anyone can add commentary. We’ll see when the spring classics get here but I’m not sure I’ll be renewing this. As to the app working, it does most of the time but sometimes goes walkabout or does not connect the first time. But if you are casting to a tv realize that google or Samsung are probably sending your content to their servers to spy on you. Or maybe google is piping it to China for free! 😏
  • Olympics 2018!Viewing Feb 9, 2018

    By ajack17
    App just updated 20 hours ago in time for the Olympics and is still very buggy with videos that don’t load, error messages and so forth, especially when trying to use Chromecast. In addition, this app can be vastly improved upon for the Olympics 2018 viewing by being much more versatile. Eg 1) It would be nice if videos that pertain to the host country, it’s people, it’s culture, history, the venue, etc could be viewable on the app and separated out from the sports videos into a category of its own. Right now there are only two categories, sports and athletes, but I often like the ones about the host country even better. 2) I think it would be nice if we could view ANY event, including the opening and closing ceremonies, via video rather than only certain ones being viewable and these being viewable only after the event has aired on TV. Some of us don’t have TV viewing any more and won’t be able to watch the opening and closing ceremonies when NBC wants to air them.

    By Dan K Man
    This app is definitely controversial. More 1 star ratings than 5? I’ll tell you why: User error. User error. And probably some content. Many complaints reference the EPL and other soccer leagues - perhaps those packages do have issues but those aren’t the only sports. And why do I think most complaints come from those using only free coverage? I got this for the PGA coverage. It’s flawless on my Roku. On my phone. On my tablet. On my desktop. Yes, even on my laptop. The features do exactly what they say they will and the extra golf coverage is a dream. Back to the hate. User Error 1: Bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth... Did you know apps use the internet? Did you know streaming apps use A LOT of internet? 9/10 streaming issues on any platform are with the end user connection speed and not the app performance. Make sure you have the juice... User Error 2: Comprehension. Reading reviews quickly shows that people have unrealistic expectations and ideas of what the app is supposed to do. Not saying every one who left a 1-star review can’t use their device but in my experience closer to 6/10 issues in platform steaming are user error. If you read this far you probably want this app and I’m here to say it works just fine for me.
  • Easy fix to the app Jun 23, 2019

    By aBtDC
    Call Netflix, ask to talk with the grand pooba/poobalina and tell them please by the grace of the maker and all that is cherished and good, take over the Nbc sports app, take 29% of the subscription cut and through modern capabilities alone, and not a dime of incremental marketing cost (probably starts at zero anyway) triple the number of subscribers through word of mouth alone. If on-demand had the powerful navi tools of Netflix, or even the brilliant Tablo box, consumption of sports broadcasts would blow through the ancient, artificial ceiling/limitations wrought by Paleotonic-era Hollywood types cheaping out by licensing the best their Commodore 64 software had to offer. The Broadcasts are top notch, world class gems piped through the fresh water conduits of Flint, Michigan. I.E., ...starts as the purest delicacy of fresh Great Lakes water and gathers human misery on the way to the hapless end-user. Call one of the big guys and get help with a contemporary streaming server and app. Pretty please?
  • Good app.. But LOTS of room for improvement. Sep 11, 2017

    By bippy_b
    Pay no attention to the people who say it flat out doesn't work. It works with a good internet connection just as all video apps do. Where this app is lacking is lack of Chomecast support and the custom video interface is designed such that they can still place their ads at the bottom. That space where the ads are is space that they could be showing more of the BPL game. I have watched other sports without issue as well. The use of non-standard video also prevents users from using the Picture in Picture feature to put the video in the corner to do something else while watching at the same time. The people want Chomecast!!!!! People want to be able to put the video into the corner and do other things (like text their friends to say "Did you see that play!" Without having to lose their video.. then have to start the video back up.. just poorly designed app).

    The Olympics TV schedule is incredibly poor. I assumed the NBC Sports app would identify which network in the NBC family will broadcast a specific event. No such luck... It seems absolutely crazy I can't use this app to find out which network will broadcast the first USWNT soccer match (which begins in roughly 12 hours as I write this). Hopefully they add this functionality sometime, but the fact this was released without such a basic function makes the app worthless for me.
  • NBC should make improvements to the app and maybe don’t be too greedy May 5, 2019

    By AgnesInAgony
    I’m ok with paying a fee for service, just like I do for Netflix or HBO GO, but personally I feel NBC is going a little far to charge a fee per sport/interest. Just have the fee for all-access to content like other services, instead of being locked out of all content but still being able to visually see it all. I don’t think anyone at NBC actually uses the App because long, long ago they would have desired to place the option to easily rewind/fast forward either in 15-30 second increments, or/and in using the app on the phone or through the T.V. allow the viewer to see content while in NBC’s version of “scrolling” through content to find the spot you are looking for. Old School VHS players rewind easier. The viewer is forced to sign in over and over again so the least NBC could do is actually remember where the user is in their personal content in one channel when switching from different devices. Netflix will remember where you currently are in their content with a multitude of shows, NBC can make the app remember where I am with my siphoned/filtered down content to one game on two personal devices. I appreciate that NBC has allowed me to watch Rugby in America, and I want to continue this relationship but possibly from your end (at NBC) continue to make the product work better for your users.

    App needs MAJOR improvements. Takes FOREVER to get to old replays. NO SEARCH. NO FAVORITES OR WATCH LIST. Android TV version is slow, too. Trackpass is a good deal for $5, BUT the super slow navigation and weak menus severely hurt it and keep me from recommending it unless you're a patient diehard racing junkie. I'm using primarily the updated Android TV version on my fast NVidia Shield. If they fix it, I WILL update my review. I give credit where it's due. I hope they EARN my 5 star review!
  • NBC Sports app review Jan 19, 2019

    By Har8M
    There are periods where you work and then an app update comes along and throws it all down the toilet again. As a customer all I want is a reliable way to watch the premier league and that is definitely not the case with your app. It's incredibly annoying to wake up early before the game only to realize the app is not working and you miss a significant chunk of the beginning. Then there's also the issue with the advertisements popping up randomly in the middle of the game or the app crashing and having to completely reload including the advertisements before I'm able to watch again. Been using the app for years and I don't understand how you keep messing it up. A more understandable issue is the delay from live TV. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten texts from friends about immediate results and goals prior to me seeing them. Like I said this one is understandable since its a stream. Test it before releasing please to ensure proper functionality. And then there's the issue of the gold membership locking out certain games for an extra monthly fee. I might have purchased it if I had any confidence in the app. At the time I'm writing this review, the average is 2.1 stars. Take the hint NBC Sports. Before exploiting fans, at least have a functional app. I'm currently streaming the game I want to watch using an illigitamate stream instead of yours. Hey at least no advertisements. 1 star!

    The app seems to think I care about the Olympics or local DC sports, even though ive never watched them. As a result, I have to click through lots of content I'm not interested in, every time the app crashes, just to see if content I am interested in is even available
  • Infuriating! Feb 21, 2018

    By oscarboobird
    Like so many other reviewers, I too am a cable cutter, and someone who has watched the Olympics ever since I was also that little 4 year old performing camel spins on the ice rink her dad built on the back patio every winter with dreams of Peggy Fleming, the 7 year old blazing down the mountains dreaming of Jean Claude Killi, the high school student cheering on Mark Spitz because one of his swim teammates attended my own school, and so on. The Olympics belongs to EVERYONE, not just cable subscribers! This app claims to give you full access...but does NOT tell you it's for a supposed 30 minute free trial per day, that's broadcasting 12 minutes of commercials. NBC bought the rights years ago - and standard broadcasts deliver content with the endless commercials to pay for the licensing. I'd put up with the commercials gladly, if I got to watch an entire curling match start to finish, a whole hockey game, a complete qualifying series for luge and skeleton and bobsled, the entire race for all the alpine skiers from gold medal to last place finishers - which is EXACTLY what those cable subscribers get. The enhanced coverage is very well done - but the teaser time limited amount is INFURIATING!!! My very cheapskate self would consent to paying for the app, if it actually allowed me to watch even the standard coverage,nor the full live streams and replays. I plan to delete this thing as soon as the Olympics are over...infuriating!

    If you want to watch NASCAR, this is not the app. Every time I try to watch a race the app is stuck buffering. FOX SPORTS APP WAS AWESOME. I WAS ABLE TO WATCH EVERY RACE. They seem to know how to offer an app THAT WORKS !!! Too bad NASCAR can't use FOX app for entire season.
  • Forced experience Nov 30, 2020

    By phole314
    Forced to watch commercials, forced to scroll past things I don’t want, forced to scroll one day at a time (it takes me about 20 taps to get to the content I paid for), forced to remember where I stopped watching a replay (and then forced to watch a commercial again before I can skip to where I left off), and forced to restart/re-enter credentials/re-activate my device/select all the pictures with traffic lights in them/check my email for an activation link...my dinner got cold guys, I don’t have the time, and I’m questioning if it’s worth paying for. Once I get in, it’s good; but I have to do 100% of the work - you could have basically given me a long sorted list of text links and it would be about the same mental effort. If any of your UI/UX / customer research / app design / product managers / MBA’s have LinkedIn profiles, I would suggest seriously considering whether you should list the NBC Sports app as part of your work history. If your resume ever came across my desk and you listed this app, I will have a lot of questions for you as to why you think any of this is focused on your user. And don’t get me started about how I have to pay for 3 different kinds of TV if I want to make sure I can watch all of the sport you offer. I mean, I just don’t need sports this bad.

  • Love the App but Please Add More Features Mar 12, 2019

    By Teewinks
    I appreciate that you combined NBC Gold with NBC Sports. I use the app on my iPad for the premium cycling and speed-skating passes. All in all, I love your app; however, I would love it more if you added a few extra features: Please add Youtube-style options of rewinding 10 seconds or so and fast-forwarding 10 seconds or so. So many times I want to rewatch a spectacular feat of athleticism and trying to press and drag that tiny, little dot thing is horrible and frustratingly difficult and never, ever moves even closely to where I want it. Also, will you please allow your app to sync with auxiliary keyboards that many of us use on our iPads. That way, we can hit the pause/play button and not struggle with getting our finger to line up at the bottom of the screen.
  • The APP works just fine Feb 17, 2018

    By gettheskinny
    It seems like people are reviewing NBC policy or programming instead of this app. The app works just fine! I also cut the cord years ago, and wish all the Olympic events were on broadcast TV like that used to be, but I found a pretty cheap solution for this limited-time event. I signed up for Sling TV, which has no contract, and you can sign up and cancel anytime. It costs $25 plus tax per month, and it’s a legitimate provider, so once you have Sling TV set up, you can use it to log into this NBC Sports app and watch events on demand as well as live. I’ve had a few minor freezers when I’ve been watching, but they have all resolve themselves within a few seconds. I’ve been really happy with the app and all of viewing choices it offers.
  • Needs work Dec 25, 2017

    By showless in Decatur
    When introduced, this was a great service which freed me to watch games live while on the go, above all English soccer. Between it and the DirecTV app, and my many extra sports channels, I could watch all my soccer and football teams on my phone anywhere. Then NBC introduced the paid Gold app. Too often now the free app throws error codes about my lack of rights to watch the game. Same with the DirecTV app. So although I’ve added around $30 in sports packages to my underlying tv service in the last year, my app access is now a fraction of what it was before. I’ve also noticed ad creep—the Southwest intro every time you tap in, a promo layer that didn’t used to be there at all, and Chevy ads ad nauseam.
  • Best Between the Lines Reporting Aug 16, 2017

    By ScottAdrian
    I see that there are people reporting problems with it cutting out, perhaps they should check their internet connection because I've never had a single problem with the IPad or iPhone version. This App has the best up to date stories about every sport that means anything. Personally I play a lot of Fantasy Football and with this app at my side I have accurate prompt information about every QB battle or position struggle in camp or in the front office. This isn't just injury reports like Rotoworld but a much more in depth analysis of what is really going on both on the field and behind the scenes. A day doesn't go by without checking every article or new clip posted.
  • Stabilize swiping on the sports talk part Dec 13, 2020

    By rex1909
    I don’t really use this for anything but to access PFT. NBC got rid of most of the other “talk” sites that I read, but I can understand that. The functionality of this portion of the app is pretty terrible. The directional effect of scrolling makes it really difficult to use. If you are scrolling down and your thumb tracks ever so slightly left or right you are taken to the next or previous story. If, in the story menu you’re scrolling side to side looking for something to read, and track up or down, you’re brought back to the beginning. No issues with the content, though I miss CFT and Hardball Talk.
  • NBC sports review Aug 15, 2019

    By Nick.G.P
    I like that they have a mobile app so you can watch your sports when out. I also like how they have replays. I love this because if you miss out one day and you really wanted to watch it, well here you go. Now let’s get to the reason why I put 3 stars, I put 3 stars because u have to pay gold to watch motorcross and I’m using motorcross for a example, but then pay again for super cross. Now if you don’t follow the dirt bike racing world. Motorcross and super cross and the same thing. Yes is different in a way but it’s basically the same thing. Also there’s this glitch were the audio just cuts out why I don’t know.
  • When it works, it’s good Jul 28, 2019

    By Maddog1381
    I have had problems with this app on my smart TV. Hours after being notified on my phone that the replay is available, I find on my TV “Coverage has Concluded.” Or I might get the circle being drawn showing the TV is buffering information, forever. Twice my solution was to uninstall/reinstall the app. I also had a problem where if I quit watching a replay one day, the next day I had to finish watching that replay before it would let me make choices about what to watch. I enjoyed the coverage of the Tour de France and other bike races, but how it worked on my TV was spotty.
  • One of the few ways to watch Cycling Jul 9, 2019

    By Mikethewordguy
    I am troubled by most of the issues found by other subscribers. But I must say that to me, the cost is worth it to be able to watch cycling in real time; especially “the Tour”. It makes July so much better. I have had trouble with streaming, and I can’t say I enjoy advertising. But the cost is not outrageous( but cheaper is always better) and the a la cart way of doing it is a drag if you want to add other sports, but I guess someone has to pay for the content so you can share it. So basically I’m a fan. But you only get 5 stars for awesome. And it’s just not awesome.
  • SIMPLY AWFUL Jan 15, 2018

    By FC31319
    UPDATE - Do you realize that NBC will be showing the Super Bowl in a few weeks? Imagine trying to watch the game, just as you’ve done every year only to find that the app is pulling its same old BS. It’s hard to find the words. This app is useless. Many of us have downloaded it so that we can watch Sunday Night Football. Good luck with that. You can watch NASCAR, yet the NFL is out of reach. Log in/log out, uninstall/reinstall, set up location services. None of it matters. You just get a spinning signal for an indefinite amount of time. NBC likely doesn’t care. I hate this App. No stars. Negative stars.

    I purchased the NBC Sports Gold app today in order to primarily watch golf. The picture is great. The commentary is pretty good. The app itself needs improvement. I should be able to go back 15 seconds (using Roku). I also should be able to reverse, pause, and fast forward. Before I read the restrictions, I tried to watch 2 TVs in separate rooms. There is a restriction to a one user at a time viewing. When I try to login to the 2nd user (which isn’t allowed), there is a message saying that there was something wrong with my login/password and then I had to prove that I was not a robot. The correct message should have been related to only one user at a time is allowed, and not a login/password problem. If you know enough to give a message, give the correct message.
  • The Primary Sports App I use During Football Off Season Aug 15, 2019

    By Waste'in'time
    I love the Gold Package for golf coverage. Featured group coverage and the primary broadcast when it comes on tv. I wish “Gold Package” included coverage for more than one sporting event, however. Since it’s a monthly subscription, I feel like I should get access to golf, Tour De France and other special events. But you have to buy another subscription package for each event individually. I feel a little nickel and dimed, especially since I can flip over to cable to watch. I would stay on the app, over cable, bc commercials don’t seem to be as long but I’m not going to pay a Gold package subscription for every event, especially when I only care about the Tour De France as far as cycling is concerned. I have no desire to watch every cycling event. My $0.02
  • Epic Fail : See update. Aug 12, 2018

    By 1+1infiniteloop
    Version 5.13. iPad mini 4. Cellular. iOS 11.4.1 App freezes. Doesn’t delete ISP after deleting app. Reboot and reinstall doesn’t cure the problem. Somehow I’ve been lucky enough to get the app to function. However, after sleeping in the background, the app will stop functioning and the cycle of reboot/reinstall has to be performed. Prior to this struggle, I was nagged every day to authenticate. Wish I had a previous version. Update: The issues may be related to being signed into my ISP. I’ve not been able to recreate the issues previously described. While logged into my ISP, the app icon in the Dock is “blacked” out and doesn’t work, yet the app functions normally when started from the page. Cycle power, Dock app functions normally.

    Decent app. Struggles with casting (quality/reliability). Pretty much always figuring out a different way to display it on a TV, other than casting. Also, for the money, I feel like what you get could be better. I'm invested in hoping that it does improve (golf content specifically), so I won't cancel. This is a great direction for golf coverage - I sometimes enjoy this more, due to the terrible state of commentating & often dumb player coverage choices on TV. Faldo & Feherty are soo bad.

    Subpar. Overly complex navigation. Show me what I pay for rather than having me scroll through a bunch of locked junk. PGA pass is ok but if it's on TV those events are excluded. No LPGA. It's a different league but it would put more content here and give a larger audience. Sometimes I just want to see golf. I don't care whose swinging.
  • Australian cycling pass ?? Sep 2, 2019

    By subtropical_ken
    I haven’t cut the cable yet so I can watch most nbc content on directv. But I did get the cycling pass to watch things others than the TDF and to watch it ad-free. No offense to the knowledgeable Aussie fellows who prattle on continually in the ad-free version but I was hoping for Bob Roll and Phil Liggett, et al. It seems stupid (and perhaps a bit misleading?) on nbc’s part to pay another set on commentators when they could just have other content or vignettes during the commercials. My hat is off to the aussies who can keep up a conversation for 3 to 4 hours though. I guess millennials like that stuff. The TV feed comes from the one source anyway and anyone can add commentary. We’ll see when the spring classics get here but I’m not sure I’ll be renewing this. As to the app working, it does most of the time but sometimes goes walkabout or does not connect the first time. But if you are casting to a tv realize that google or Samsung are probably sending your content to their servers to spy on you. Or maybe google is piping it to China for free! 😏
  • Olympics 2018!Viewing Feb 9, 2018

    By ajack17
    App just updated 20 hours ago in time for the Olympics and is still very buggy with videos that don’t load, error messages and so forth, especially when trying to use Chromecast. In addition, this app can be vastly improved upon for the Olympics 2018 viewing by being much more versatile. Eg 1) It would be nice if videos that pertain to the host country, it’s people, it’s culture, history, the venue, etc could be viewable on the app and separated out from the sports videos into a category of its own. Right now there are only two categories, sports and athletes, but I often like the ones about the host country even better. 2) I think it would be nice if we could view ANY event, including the opening and closing ceremonies, via video rather than only certain ones being viewable and these being viewable only after the event has aired on TV. Some of us don’t have TV viewing any more and won’t be able to watch the opening and closing ceremonies when NBC wants to air them.
  • Good app.. But LOTS of room for improvement. Sep 11, 2017

    By bippy_b
    Pay no attention to the people who say it flat out doesn't work. It works with a good internet connection just as all video apps do. Where this app is lacking is lack of Chomecast support and the custom video interface is designed such that they can still place their ads at the bottom. That space where the ads are is space that they could be showing more of the BPL game. I have watched other sports without issue as well. The use of non-standard video also prevents users from using the Picture in Picture feature to put the video in the corner to do something else while watching at the same time. The people want Chomecast!!!!! People want to be able to put the video into the corner and do other things (like text their friends to say "Did you see that play!" Without having to lose their video.. then have to start the video back up.. just poorly designed app).
  • now runs fairly well Nov 14, 2017

    By Kichijoji-dave
    November, 2017 Update: they finally seem to have fixed the crashing!! Thank you NBC. (iPhone 7+ with iOS 10.3.3) So, my rating improves to three stars. Now, PLEASE give us skip-forward and backward controls on the iPhone. When watching a two-hour event, the tiny scrub bar is too difficult to use. My suggestion: Swipe right on the middle of the video display to skip ahead 30 seconds, and swipe left to skip back. June 1, 2017 (one star) Obviously we can't expect a tiny little company like NBC to be able to afford to hire a competent app programming company. The app still crashes at every commercial break, forcing us to start over again, again, again, again, again, and again. Read the reviews, it's been crashing for three years and they still haven't fixed it. When you have a monopoly on sporting events, you don't have to care about your customers, because there's absolutely nothing they can do except continue to pay the cable bills. The NBC advertisers can also rest assured I will be avoiding your products, after being sickened by watching the same commercials ad-nauseam when I have to restart the app 1 million times to get through a single event.
  • NBC Sports Gold is a good service, but the app needs better playback controls Jun 2, 2019

    By CincyTriGuy
    I’m a big fan of the NBC Sports Gold service. I watch Motocross and Supercross and I like getting all the qualifying, heats, and main events in a separate service outside of my cable package. This means I don’t have to be raped by my cable provider for their most expensive package in order to get NBC Sports Network, and then still deal with only partial and delayed airing. With NBC Sports Gold, I can watch everything in real time. That said, the app experience is not great. Here are some of my complaints: 1. The app itself is too busy and confusing. It needs to be streamlined 2. No way to pause or restart live playback. If you want to watch a live event that already started, you have to sit around and wait for it to finish in order to play it back from the beginning 3. No jump ahead or back buttons. There needs to be buttons to jump forward or backward like 15 or 30 seconds. 4. Can’t pause from the space bar on an attached iPad keyboard. I’ll concede that this is probably an edge use case but still, it speaks to the overall immaturity of the playback controls being very basic.
  • Absolute furry Jan 12, 2019

    By Coolpuppy3214
    Okay I’m a premier league fan. I want to watch premier league right? I wanted to watch at least SOME games. Instead when I open the app it said “select cable provider.” I was FURIOUS. The whole reason I got NBC sports was to WATCH THE GAMES because I DON’T HAVE CABLE. It makes me question why anyone with cable would buy this thing because they can just watch it on TV! If NBC would fix that and I could watch the games then I would give them a great rating with all five stars but instead I have to spoon over $50 to get the premier league pass on NBCS gold!!!!!! NBC the only reason I’m giving you ANY stars is because I can watch highlights and previews but just like that other guy I just wanna watch the games!!!!! I would give you five stars but yeah, no
  • NBC Sports Gold for Cycling Nov 20, 2020

    By Colin Cycling Fan
    I most often watch cycling on my iPad. The display really needs controls to allow viewers to fast rewind by 10 seconds or so, for times when text is displayed, but doesn’t stay on screen long enough to read it all. Also, there Play / Pause control is too small, and often doesn’t detect my touch the first time. The Flobikes app allows me to “cast” the show I’m watching to my Fire Stick, so that I can view it on my TV, so I guess you could do that, too. Reading other reviews, it seems that you are not reacting very fast, if at all, to suggestions and complaints. A couple of improvements doesn’t seem like too much to ask, since NBC seems to be gradually raising the cost of their Gold packages.
  • NBC should make improvements to the app and maybe don’t be too greedy May 5, 2019

    By AgnesInAgony
    I’m ok with paying a fee for service, just like I do for Netflix or HBO GO, but personally I feel NBC is going a little far to charge a fee per sport/interest. Just have the fee for all-access to content like other services, instead of being locked out of all content but still being able to visually see it all. I don’t think anyone at NBC actually uses the App because long, long ago they would have desired to place the option to easily rewind/fast forward either in 15-30 second increments, or/and in using the app on the phone or through the T.V. allow the viewer to see content while in NBC’s version of “scrolling” through content to find the spot you are looking for. Old School VHS players rewind easier. The viewer is forced to sign in over and over again so the least NBC could do is actually remember where the user is in their personal content in one channel when switching from different devices. Netflix will remember where you currently are in their content with a multitude of shows, NBC can make the app remember where I am with my siphoned/filtered down content to one game on two personal devices. I appreciate that NBC has allowed me to watch Rugby in America, and I want to continue this relationship but possibly from your end (at NBC) continue to make the product work better for your users.

    App needs MAJOR improvements. Takes FOREVER to get to old replays. NO SEARCH. NO FAVORITES OR WATCH LIST. Android TV version is slow, too. Trackpass is a good deal for $5, BUT the super slow navigation and weak menus severely hurt it and keep me from recommending it unless you're a patient diehard racing junkie. I'm using primarily the updated Android TV version on my fast NVidia Shield. If they fix it, I WILL update my review. I give credit where it's due. I hope they EARN my 5 star review!
  • Jul 6, 2021

    By Howard Siegel
    Very glitchy and slow. It does make me wonder why, with all the negative reviews, they don't try and improve the app. I also noticed you don't see any response from the developers like you do on other apps. Leads me to believe they don't care. That's not cool.

    What's the point of having app alerts if the alerts turn off every time you close the app? I'm supposed to leave this app open all day & night during the Olympics? Gave 2 stars b/c they *do* show all the sports, but no alerts is just horrible.
  • Could be so much better Apr 1, 2019

    By postmansmp
    It’s a shame that a major broadcast company that has been such a big part of American sports and entertainment can’t figure out how to innovate at a high level in the new world of digital viewing... I’ve stopped keeping track of the frustrating things about this app and just tried to deal with it in order to watch Premier League matches... the most recent frustration is that purchasing the NBC Sports Gold package for premier league only gets you the matches that are designated “gold”... in any other world it would give access to the “gold matches” in addition to the regular NBCSports app matches... I was planning on being able to watch all the premier league matches without cable... but because of the way it’s set up, I had to have cable to watch the matches on the regular NBCSports app... not very golden... also, if coverage of a match hasn’t started or has finished, then don’t have it in the selection line up... or at least list the start time and then pull it out of “Live & Upcoming” as soon as the coverage ends... just do better... start with listening to the viewers...
  • Injustice for American F1 fans Sep 2, 2017

    By Blah234561
    I rate NBCSN due to the fact cable and satellite are high in price,just to watch my favorite sport. But it comes with the territory,I'm sure I speak for all F1 fans,that we want to see the live broadcasts of free practice 1-3,I'd also like to see all the qualifying sessions live and delayed. The app is my biggest disappointment,I don't want to see the commercials when I'm watching the replay of race,I'm so tired of Verizon that I'm switching carriers,im so tired of Chevrolet commercials as well,I'll buy something else. The app is saturated with commercials. And you cant fast forward them. I'd really rather not see any commercials on the app when watching a replay,cuz I had to work and couldn't see the programs live. Also bring back Bob Varsha to commentate PLEASE along side Hobbs and Matchett,no offense but Diffy is boring,bland unexcitng, seems to not know anything of G1 nor racing in general,his research is an insult to the sport and fans. I'd also like to see all of the after race and weekly media buzz feed of F1 as well. Speed was so great at this,but now NBCSN HS the rights,but dont seem to care about F1.

  • Good Content trapped poorly executed app Jul 10, 2019

    By dannbikesalot
    I get the Cycling Pass and the Snow Pass. Most of the content rates 3 stars which to me means that I get the content I anticipated for the price I paid: good video with adequate but- not-at-all-entertaining commentary for the bicycle races (except for the Tour De France coverage with Robby McCewen (sp?). Robby’s commentary is 5 star and the banter with his normally humdrum co-host pulls his co-host’s game up to 4 stars. Very sparse commentary for the snow pass but I don’t mind. The video is great and NBC delivers a million races for the price. BUT... all this applies only when the app allows me to access the content! The app freezes or fails to work entirely. Every time I enter the app I have to set my preferences. It would be really nice to have the option to jump back 10 or 15 seconds to repeat a segment of coverage I missed. I don’t want to bash the IT people. I don’t know their story. But I can only says that every aspect of these purchases over the past 3 years has been average or above, except the IT side of things. The IT drags the overall score down to 2 stars.
  • Please fix Apple TV app Aug 28, 2017

    By SP Jon
    You get two stars because you offer F1. If it wasn't for F1 I'd delete the app ASAP. The reason.. your controls are horrible. Please fix the controls on Apple TV. Revert them to the native Apple pause/scrub and 10sec jump controls, yours don't work properly. First. When I touch the remote it jumps back to the last time I did a 10 second jump, meaning half way trough the program it might start back at the beginning. Then if I pause the program to scrub back or forth I have no idea at what time I pause it. (Hint: all of this can be fixed if you revert your controls back to the native Apple TV control) Second, why do I, the consumer, have to remember a differ interface (light touch as opposed to every other app with a button press for 10 second jump) and method of controlling my program than ALL the other apps out there? I have yet to find another app with different/worse controls that your app. All other apps seem to do fine with the native Apple controls. Please revert to them, yours are NOT good!
  • More garbage from NBC Mar 16, 2018

    By gess4221
    It’s great that I can login and watch hockey games on my fire stick while I’m away from home....but...if I pause the app for five minutes because I have to take a phone call or something of that nature, why can I not then fast forward through the commercials. The commercials that NBC is making additional money on top of the commercials they air through cable. I pay my greedy cable provider for this channel...another channel that requires an above basic cable package and still has commercials. The least they could do is allow me to fast forward to live play after pausing. On top of that, half of the time the app claims that the game I want to watch is blacked out my area...even when I’m in Texas and want to watch the wings play the rangers. How is that blacked out in Texas. I try to watch it three more times and it finally decides to play...just another frustrating app developed by a company making millions and millions of dollars that couldn’t care less about their viewer satisfaction.

    Beyond Frustrating to deal with Jun 10, 2021

    I cant keep it logged in for extended periods of time. It logs out mid stream and in between watching. It is terrible for personal use as well as business use. It happens at work constantly. Glad PGA Tour is moving to ESPN next season. NBC Sports app is worthless.

    The Olympics TV schedule is incredibly poor. I assumed the NBC Sports app would identify which network in the NBC family will broadcast a specific event. No such luck... It seems absolutely crazy I can't use this app to find out which network will broadcast the first USWNT soccer match (which begins in roughly 12 hours as I write this). Hopefully they add this functionality sometime, but the fact this was released without such a basic function makes the app worthless for me.
  • NBC Sports app review Jan 19, 2019

    By Har8M
    There are periods where you work and then an app update comes along and throws it all down the toilet again. As a customer all I want is a reliable way to watch the premier league and that is definitely not the case with your app. It's incredibly annoying to wake up early before the game only to realize the app is not working and you miss a significant chunk of the beginning. Then there's also the issue with the advertisements popping up randomly in the middle of the game or the app crashing and having to completely reload including the advertisements before I'm able to watch again. Been using the app for years and I don't understand how you keep messing it up. A more understandable issue is the delay from live TV. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten texts from friends about immediate results and goals prior to me seeing them. Like I said this one is understandable since its a stream. Test it before releasing please to ensure proper functionality. And then there's the issue of the gold membership locking out certain games for an extra monthly fee. I might have purchased it if I had any confidence in the app. At the time I'm writing this review, the average is 2.1 stars. Take the hint NBC Sports. Before exploiting fans, at least have a functional app. I'm currently streaming the game I want to watch using an illigitamate stream instead of yours. Hey at least no advertisements. 1 star!

  • Infuriating! Feb 21, 2018

    By oscarboobird
    Like so many other reviewers, I too am a cable cutter, and someone who has watched the Olympics ever since I was also that little 4 year old performing camel spins on the ice rink her dad built on the back patio every winter with dreams of Peggy Fleming, the 7 year old blazing down the mountains dreaming of Jean Claude Killi, the high school student cheering on Mark Spitz because one of his swim teammates attended my own school, and so on. The Olympics belongs to EVERYONE, not just cable subscribers! This app claims to give you full access...but does NOT tell you it's for a supposed 30 minute free trial per day, that's broadcasting 12 minutes of commercials. NBC bought the rights years ago - and standard broadcasts deliver content with the endless commercials to pay for the licensing. I'd put up with the commercials gladly, if I got to watch an entire curling match start to finish, a whole hockey game, a complete qualifying series for luge and skeleton and bobsled, the entire race for all the alpine skiers from gold medal to last place finishers - which is EXACTLY what those cable subscribers get. The enhanced coverage is very well done - but the teaser time limited amount is INFURIATING!!! My very cheapskate self would consent to paying for the app, if it actually allowed me to watch even the standard coverage,nor the full live streams and replays. I plan to delete this thing as soon as the Olympics are over...infuriating!

  • Forced experience Nov 30, 2020

    By phole314
    Forced to watch commercials, forced to scroll past things I don’t want, forced to scroll one day at a time (it takes me about 20 taps to get to the content I paid for), forced to remember where I stopped watching a replay (and then forced to watch a commercial again before I can skip to where I left off), and forced to restart/re-enter credentials/re-activate my device/select all the pictures with traffic lights in them/check my email for an activation link...my dinner got cold guys, I don’t have the time, and I’m questioning if it’s worth paying for. Once I get in, it’s good; but I have to do 100% of the work - you could have basically given me a long sorted list of text links and it would be about the same mental effort. If any of your UI/UX / customer research / app design / product managers / MBA’s have LinkedIn profiles, I would suggest seriously considering whether you should list the NBC Sports app as part of your work history. If your resume ever came across my desk and you listed this app, I will have a lot of questions for you as to why you think any of this is focused on your user. And don’t get me started about how I have to pay for 3 different kinds of TV if I want to make sure I can watch all of the sport you offer. I mean, I just don’t need sports this bad.
  • Please Fix the Streaming Issues!!! Jan 15, 2019

    By Upset Supercross Fan
    I have been a Supercross/Motocross fan for a very long time. I wasn’t thrilled about having to pay $75 for NBC Gold in order to see qualifying and all the races live. However, I talked myself through it and was ready to buy. I am very happy I did not! I decided to stream through the NBC Sports app for the first 2 rounds of the 2019 Supercross season. This app has a great layout and easy to navigate. So many good things to say about...oh wait...it doesn’t stream without continually shutting down due to app errors?!?! Isn’t that the primary function?!?! I tried on 3 different streaming devices and verified internet connections to rule out the “user error” tag. Then I read the reviews on NBC Sports and NBC Gold apps. Streaming, streaming, streaming!!! I feel for all the people who paid $75 and are dealing with streaming issues. I hope that NBC will stand behind their products and refund their $$ until they fix their apps. I have steamed Supercross the last 2 years through Fox Sports app and never had issues. This could be such a great app. I really do like the app layout. But if it doesn’t seamlessly do the job it was designed to do, it’s just a fancy background app. If you want my $75 NBC.. fix your app streaming issues!!
  • It’s not you, it’s me Mar 6, 2019

    By RegListner
    I have been happily subscribing to NBC Sports Gold for the Pro Motocross races for a few years now, with no complaints. So happy with it that I bought an AppleTV (4Gen) so that I could download the app, that wasn’t available through the Samsung Smart TV App Store, so that I could watch the SuperCross and Pro Motocross (subscription) on my tv rather that connecting my laptop to the tv to stream. Well, three races into having this AppleTV and everything works better than I could have expected except for NBC Gold. Oh wait, is it because you killed the Gold app and waited two weeks to send an email outlining the change? Maybe I missed the first one? Switch to NBC Sports app and login to my Gold profile, still doesn’t work. Maybe it’s me? Contact support, “Have you tried restarting the Apple TV or deleting and reinstalling the app?” How about yes, that’s why I’m now reaching out to you because the layman troubleshooting didn’t work, I need real support. “Well, all is fine here, why don’t you just return your AppleTV and get a Fire Stick. They seem to work much better.” Really? Does anyone give a **** about customer service? Are there still CSI scores? Does management know how poorly the product is being offered and supported?
