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.
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!
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!
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!!
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?
