Hello, My name is Brian and I'm a cord cutter (all together " Hi Brian") So I have no cable service any longer. This App only works if you have a current contract for cable service. not for nothing guys, if I had cable service I would not bother with Amazon Fire TV in the first place. You need to learn you customer base, dont offer apps like this if your not able to deliver, or rewrite your agreements with the networks to allow access even if we have to pay a small fee.
We are trying to watch the olympics with the app and they show the same commercials in the same order over and over and over again, and about every 5 minutes! It is to the point of cruelty and torture, really. It makes me not want to watch anymore. They even interrupt the events!! I don't ever want to buy or support Koch, eat McDonalds, use IHC, or watch Mamma Mia ever!! The way they are forcing the ads is definitely having a negative effect that I am sure the sponsors did not intend and are not paying for.
This app is virtually useless. Primary detractions:
1. Playback is unreliable in quality and seamlessness. This is not a problem I have with other apps. Every 20 seconds or-so I get a yellow 'buffering' loop that takes 20 more seconds to return to streaming (now at substantially decreased quality). My internet speed is fine--and, oddly enough, provided by NBC's parent company.
2. Commercials cut into programming. I got the app to watch the 2018 Olympics and it cuts into live competition to show ads. It might be tolerable (but shouldn't happen at all) if it was a rare fluke; but it isn't. It happens every couple minutes; absolutely ruining the watching experience.
3. The commercial-to-program ratio is something like 2:1. I am spending twice as much time watching commercials as I am programming.
I can only surmise that NBC really doesn't want one to actually use this to enjoy their programming.
Disappointment. You can't watch live streams from the beginning, it starts playing from the actual moment you turned it on. If you have to watch something you've missed you have to wait until the life stream is over and moved to the replay area. Rewinding of the replays is not easy and precise, so I try to avoid using it. You can't rewind through the commercials but that is expected. You also will need an account with a cable company so if you are a cable cutter, you are out of luck. Overall experience is quite disappointing and ruined the Olympic experience a bit. No wonder Olympic tv ratings are very low. A lot of people cut cable but NBC failed to provide a good alternative for watching it. If I wasn't huge Olympics fan, I would just delete it and skipped on the games.
What exactly is the point of a streaming app that requires a provider connection? If I already have a provider service, that probably has a DVR device, this app (and the service it provides) is completely useless. NBC Sports, please hop into the present and provide a true streaming app. No one needs cable any more so drop the provider requirement and join the new paradigm.
Yes, you still have to already have cable/TV for this to be of any use, yet if you already have cable/TV then why would this be of any use.....?? I just don't understand how these stupid networks still don't get that 1. The internet is not a fad and it is not "the enemy". 2. There's millions of people out there that won't see your stupid commercials if you don't make it possible. NBC finally got the hint and made the Super Bowl available, but not the Olympics...(?) The only time I miss TV is for things like the Olympics, the Final Four, Super Bowl and Stanley Cup. 3. If you're selling commercials to companies and then excluding millions of viewers, you're not making as much money as you could selling "potential viewers" to your advertisers.... 4. No, I don't expect everything to be free; I'm willing to pay something on pay per view basis so......... what's the problem, TV networks? If I didn't know better I'd think TV was run by a bunch of rich, old white guys who don't even realize how out of touch with things they really are. Reminds me of the time IBM sold a worthless computer program to a stupid kid named Bill Gates for $30,000...........
While the "app" itself is free, you still need to have a cable provider to use it. Which to me, defeats the entire purpose of streaming! If I'm going to have to keep a cable provider to use the apps...I'll just watch it on tv through my provider!
Not what I was looking for at all. I got rid of cable because of the crazy fees they charge, so this app is useless to anyone who doesn't have cable.
The app says I can get access to content if I'm a Dish Network subscriber (I am) and my Dish programming includes NBC Sports (it does). So I:
1. Got an activation code through the NBC app (Android version running in Amazon Fire). 2. Entered it at nbcsports.com/activate 3. Received this message: "Congratulations, you've successfully activated your device and can now watch NBC Sports. It may take a moment for your device to update. You have access to NBC Sports video from the following networks: NBCSN . . . ." 4. Then this message from the app: “You do not have a subscription to view the requested content. To upgrade your programming go to mydish.com/programming and then log back in to view content.”
Support from Androidtv@nbcdigital.zendesk.com and email@example.com was useless. They said "In order to view live content in the NBC Sports app, you need to have a cable subscription that includes the USA network." My Dish Network programming does include the USA Network. So I'm not allowed to watch NBC's commercial-saturated lives sports programming because I have Dish instead of cable? That makes no sense.
