    I can only get Sports Gold which is disappointing as I would much prefer Golf Channel. But I can at least get some of the Thursday and Friday video highlights from the PGA Tour. I will never understand why companies don't let customers choose the content they want to see. But, the app works quite well and the streams I can get are always solid so it gets a 4 star review.

  • 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.

    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.....

  • Great view, app needs work Jun 19, 2020

    By sweber7178
    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.

EACH TIME 2. Swiping left/right to new articles is glitchy; scrolls left/right AND up/down 3. Scrolling across *repeats* articles just seen 4. Back button goes to 1st article all over again, exacerbating 2 and 3 above. 5. Persistent internet connection issues, despite factory reset! 3/21/21: only #1 is fixed

  • 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.

  • 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!

    You know what would be helpful for viewers overall experience? Utilizing split screen during the wrestling olympic trials. I could not be more serious when I say that the streaming of this event was abysmal. Not taking anything from the athletes that were shown but when the crowd screams from something that occurs on a different mat, maybe you should show the viewers what happened in the other match. The most anticipated matches were not shown and this ruined the experience for anyone that cares

  • 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!

  • Don’t Believe The Hate Mar 22, 2019

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • No archive viewing! Dec 8, 2019

    By cadenceman
    I like the cycling app and the availability of watching cycling throughout the season! My biggest complaint is that by the end of the subscription year there are some bike races that are on the short end of being reviewed or watched at a more convenient time, say for instant Tour of California or the Paris Roubaix. Other apps have the ability to go into the archives and watch many of the races that have been missed or just haven’t had time to watch or want to see it again. If NBC app would add this feature to it’s subscription, it would deserve a much higher rating and probably more new, and renewal subscriptions as well!

  • 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.

    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.

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!

    You know what would be helpful for viewers overall experience? Utilizing split screen during the wrestling olympic trials. I could not be more serious when I say that the streaming of this event was abysmal. Not taking anything from the athletes that were shown but when the crowd screams from something that occurs on a different mat, maybe you should show the viewers what happened in the other match. The most anticipated matches were not shown and this ruined the experience for anyone that cares

    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!

    Volume of commercials compared to the content is unacceptably, obnoxiously loud. Upsettingly, terrifyingly loud. Should be illegal loud. In my panic to mute before the cat freaks out and my gf suffers cardiac arrest, I sometimes press 'back' by mistake, breaking my stream. My reward for reconnecting to chromecast? Another violently loud commercial! Yay!
