  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Pretty goo for me Mar 11, 2019

    I like others have not had any major issues, it does not log me out when watching, recently when I want to watch my sport, (by the way I’ve only subscribed to the cycling pass) it shows me logged in when I’m not, I just simply log out and back in and I’m good, the streaming for me has been very good, no issues there, I usually stream to my TV from my iPad via google chrome and it’s very good quality, I’ve been using this app for 3 years now without nagging issues other than the one I mentioned, NBC sports gold is now simply NBC sports, all sports in one app, the layout is very good and simple to use, I also like the fact that I can rewatch replays of my races when I want as many times as I want up to when it recycles the program which is about one year, yes I would recommend this app to those who like myself are cycling fans, bottom like I love this app.....

  • 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.

    Very annoying. Every time I try to watch a live basketball game I have to sit through the same papa johns ad. Then it freezes. Then I have to reload the app and watch the same ad again. Then God forbid you exit the app for an reason because then it's that same ad, and hopefully it won't freeze after it plays. I was trying to watch the last crucial 2 minutes of a game and missed it because of this.

  • 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!

    Ok for watching content you can't get via traditional channels but a featureless & poorly executed app, especially coming from such a high profile business. Maybe I'm just overlooking all of this... There's no way to pause/resume play like how a DVR works. You have to remember which episode you were watching & the specific time in the show...No simple fast forward/rewind. No way to flag favorite shows. Come on, NBC...these are basic features that could (should) be implemented in a modern app.

  • 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!

    Love the content of the app for sixers, flyers, and epl, but the steaming experience is terrible. Constant choppy video even though I'm on a hard wire. Don't have the same problem when streaming from ESPN or foxsports apps Update. App doesn't work on the chromecast with google tv and was notified over 2 months ago with no updates to add support

    Instead of showing the game that it says, it shows you 3 commercial and them the wrong event. Instead of soccer I get hockey. It clearly says soccer at the bottom of the screen, with all sorts of stats but yet, it's showing hockey(or other programs).

    This app is awful. The video quality is garbage and often takes a while to snap into focus. More importantly, the streams constantly cut out with an "error" that forces it to refresh, conveniently making you watch an ad every time before the stream resumes.

    It just feels like they put way more effort into making sure people can't watch for free than into making their product better. Features: Why can I not rewind a live program at all? Or even pause and play it without the feed freezing? Service: Compared to other streaming apps (espn, Netflix, Fox Sports) NBC is ALWAYS having to pause and load. Sometimes, though, I'll miss 10 or 20min of a live program, because of incorrect location errors. I mean really now? Come on, yall.

  • 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.
