Until NBC hires an app developer that knows what they're doing, my rating won't go above one star. I've had nothing but issues with this app for several months. Video not streaming, garbled up video, etc. and it appears they've done put very little effort into fixing these bugs. I have posted them several times when I experienced them and it appeared they were going away but some new bug seems to pop back up every couple of weeks. I have not had these issues with any of my other video streaming apps so I know it's a problem with the app. Either fix your issues or excuse yourself from the play store!
Commercials are back and can't stream full broadcast Commercials have returned, app won't stream full broadcast for weeks and splash bar advising to check network connection stays all over my device for like 2 minutes. Very Poor. Fix and 5 stars return.
Blurry & "digitally garbled" video -- bummer 'cause I love Sacramentan Lester Holt's NBC Nightly News broadcast. *Severely* digitally garbled video reception!!! ...& No news 3/26 & 27; ...not like regular mature broadcast news with deserving viewers. 11/22/2015 no news? ...what, we stopped the planet or is NBC to cheap to hire staff to copy the feed over?
GREAT to Decent to TERRIBLE, now i got BBC app Before the 2015 update, 5 stars !!! Now it forces ads on us; App unexpectedly crashes. The words are smaller; 3/1/16 Why does the ads play fine but the segments cant load/play thoroughly? WAY TOO many political segments!! Now im deleting this app, BBC app is Waaay better!!
Nvidia shield tablet k1 2/27/2016 open the app and run it the first time all of the videos are blurry and nothing is clear after running it a second time everything becomes clear. Currently the app is unusual even using the most powerful tablet running high speed internet. Please fix we have been dealing with issues with this app for a very long time. I'm moving on to something that works I'm tired of this. 1/14/2016 Finally after years of updates and complaints this last update has made a BIG difference. Just a few bugs left... 1. very slow to bring up the following story and or ad. 2. upon opening the app it takes super long to load and often freezes. I am using the most powerful android device next to the shield tv, there should be no issues. I want to make this my single news app but I cant because of the issues..
GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY! State of the Union Address night is a microcosm of ALL the problems (on a brand new Note 5 with lots of RAM and storage available): 1. Full broadcast completely unwatchable even at 2:00 AM and all the next day: “Lost Connection to server.” 2. That mssg stays on the device screen and covers over the home screen and other apps until I Force Stop Nightly News. 3. Videos for individual segments freeze while audio continues. App is frozen at that point so … hit device home button and do yet another another Force Stop. 4. And yet all commercials run flawlessly! Says a lot for Lester and the rest of the team that I stupidly keep trying. So sick of this amateur product. EDIT: NO IMPROVEMENT after 1/14 update!
