    Feb 2018: HUGE improvement from my original 2014 review. Works flawlessly and I love that I can watch the Olympic events that I'm interested in, in their entirety. Great job, NBC team! Feb 2014: This app fails to open about 50% of the time. I would gladly pay money for an app that worked (especially if I could get around needing a paid TV subscription) but this one is just a big disappointment. Full Review

    It's ok. Using it to watch the Olympics. Anything is better than what NBC airs on TV, so the bar is pretty low here. Freezing, force closing, randomly restarting events, and no option I've found to open app to a different page (to avoid the spoilers). Happy that they're including ALL (ok, almost all) TV providers, including streaming, instead of just the big, traditional ones. It's about time those credentials were accepted. Full Review

    I love the idea of this app. The ability to watch old events as well as watch everything live is great. However the app crashes constantly and the ads are frequent and very badly timed. U understand that ads are a necessity but they play in the middle of events at very had times. While watching the snowboarding finals they played the same ad 7 times in a row with literally 19 seconds of snowboarding in between. Full Review

    Holy spoiler alert! I downloaded this app so I could watch Olympic events. As soon as you open the app it immediately tells you the results of whatever you're trying to watch. Totally ruins it for me and really annoying. I will use another outlet to stream the Olympics. Exp headline link: "Off to a gold start for...." well guess I don't have to watch it. If I just wanted to see the results I would Google it! Full Review

    Horrible. Freezes constantly. Actual commercials don't actually play during the allotted break time. Instead you get several minutes of silence and then random interruptions during weird times. But the constant freezing/buffering is the worst part. Also, hard to fast forward/rewind when watching old clips. Should have a 10 or 30 sec forward and backward button instead of only a finicky slide bar. Full Review

    rho jo Published date: February 11, 2018

    Apparently no landscape support on smartphones. You have to view everything in a tiny screen that is a 3rd size of your phone. The commerical breaks are forever, if your try to rwd the commerical breaks are every 30 secs and last for 5mins. So rwd is not worth it. The app doesn't show the schedule of when certain programs you want to see come up. This app is awful. Full Review

    I was very frustrated with how NBC spoiled all the events before they actually were displayed in the US. Also the commercials on their prime time coverage are so abundant that you barely even get any Olympic coverage. NBC has some serious work to do. They definitely negatively affected my Olympics experience. Full Review

    This app has been good IF you have a provider subscription. For watching the Olympics, it's been good. However, why is there a commercial practically every minute? I understand between each set up of a new athlete but during an athlete is performing is ridiculous. Really need to give viewers space so they can enjoy the sport without frustration. Full Review

    Chad Baker Published date: February 10, 2018

    Why haven't the streaming issues been fixed since the 2016 Olympics?? Still experiencing the same issues with but video randomly stopping. I then have to force close the app and sometimes reboot my Chromecast to get it to work before it inevitably freezes again! Very frustrated! Full Review

    Nick Strite Published date: February 11, 2018

    Horrible app, froze several times had to restart the app, the TV, the Chromecast almost every 5 minutes or less. Even on ads. Disappointing. I never watch sports and their live streaming can't match twitch or YouTube. And I'm on a galaxy s7. Not the worst phone. 150 up speeds Full Review

    Debra Morgan Published date: February 11, 2018

    Removed because you have to have cable or satellite subscription to use for anything more than short clips! This includes events that aired on non-cable channels! If it aired on a channel you can watch without paying for, you should be able to watch those events without a subscription! Definitely NOT in the Olympic spirit, NBC! Full Review

    Sarah Charters Published date: February 10, 2018

    This was the worst streaming experience ever. You have 25 minutes of "free" viewing, then you have to connect your tv service provider in order to continue to view! And THEN, 8 commercials in a row?! It's like NBC specifically did NOT want me to enjoy my free minutes of viewing at all! Pitiful app. Full Review

    Logged in to watch Olympics and 30 minutes in it freezes me out and won't let me watch until confirming tv subscription. wasn't working very well the 30 minutes i was on. Got error message, Restart app. Frozen screen. Buffering a lot (might be partially my internet fault but i can stream movies no problem) Deleting app now Full Review

    Michael McGowan Published date: February 13, 2018

    I've had a very good experience watching the Olympics with this app The commercials can be annoying, but I've been able to watch both live events and replays without buffering problems. I have a cable subscription, which I guess removed some of the restrictions. It's been useful and enjoyable. Full Review

    Kyle Armstrong Published date: February 13, 2018

    Despite turning off the notifications within the application settings I was still getting frequent (hourly) notifications from the app. I was able to resolve by using my phone settings to block notifications from app. In addition I must say that the video feed frequently freezes or gets caught in commercial loop - Clearly some work needs to be done Full Review

    Published date: February 14, 2018

    First the Hulu , then local abc news, now the NBC Olympics app. All epic app fails due to bad design and tech teams that are way over their head. Why don't they hire app builders who have had success in the past. This shouldn't be happening in 2018. Many people are getting shut out of of Olympic viewing. But...of course the commercials stream flawlessly. Full Review

    Roddy Graham Published date: February 12, 2018

    This app worked great for a few days. I'm not sure if it was the update, but now it freezes the casted screen (both Vizio tv and Chromecast ultra) randomly. I have to turn off and on the TV or unplug and replug the ccu in order to use anything on the casted screen after a freeze. Sometimes happens in a few secs or sometimes 10 min. Plus the adds are not synced with breaks during the events and I missed the gold medal run. Full Review

    Ann Hicks Published date: February 16, 2018

    I am so disappointed by this app. No understandable schedule with specific channels and times and events. After one use of app it won't go any further unless I give up scads of personal information. So disappointed in all of NBC coverage at this point. Thank you for helpingiss the "big" Team USA events, NBC. Full Review

    David Andrew Published date: February 11, 2018

    I am very disappointed that you can't live stream or even watch replays unless you have a paid subscription to a cable network. They still include all the commercial breaks on the live stream, so why should we pay an additional amount for something that already has paid advertising? Otherwise this would be a decent service. Full Review

    Patrick Borer Published date: February 11, 2018

    This app has constant streaming problems, the Olympics only come around every 4 years. You'd think that would be more than enough time for them to figure out live streaming. NBC is the worst! Full Review

  • NBC Sports
    Aron Bohl Published date: February 16, 2018

    Trying to watch the Olympics on here is pretty frustrating. Even after trying to manually refresh the feed, a bunch of expired events pollute the list. The audio while Chromecasting is chronically out of sync and the stream is pretty low quality even on a 150mbps connection. But I suppose it's better than nothing. Full Review

    Andrew Shaber Published date: February 11, 2018

    App runs fine. I don't have cable tv and won't ever again. Makes this app have very limited usage other than watching highlights. I was going to leave it installed but have received 6 notifications in the first day even though they are turned off. When clicking notifications, it doesn't even allow you to read whole headline.instead links to FAQ page. Full Review

    Roger Vertrees Published date: February 17, 2018

    App frequently locks up. It plays ads but repeatedly freezes while playing features. Has to be "authenticated" every fourth or fifth time. No scores or medal standings. Where are the scores?! FAQs are of no help. Had gone to other apps for better info. Full Review

    A Google User Published date: February 10, 2018

    It bugs out at the worst possible times. You have to completely close it and reopen it and its a total pain. I wish there was another alternative to it. Basically, ditto on everything everyone else said. WAY too many commercials and has even uninstalled itself from my tablet. The streaming is also not on par with the live stream Full Review

    Braden Johnson Published date: February 11, 2018

    Terrible app. Spending most of our time with the Winter Olympics trying to get absolutely anything to load. We have resorted to using our antenna and watching live TV when it's actually on because that works better. Crappy interface. Super slow. Uninstalling as soon as the Winter Olympics are done. Full Review

    Lisa Royan Published date: February 11, 2018

    The number of ads shown is ridiculous. I just uninstalled this app because there's an XFiniti ad in the middle of the screen, which will not go away. I downloaded this app to watch the Olympics, and I can't even see the full event because NBC is allowing ads in the middle of the screen. I don't need this app to take up space on my device. Full Review

    Andrey Yesyev Published date: February 11, 2018

    I can't follow Olimpic games on this app. On a top of constant commercial breaks, none of live streams descriptions are true. Do not install. Don't waste your time, they care only for commercials profit, not for their users. Full Review

    Kept cutting off on my Android. Can not watch any thing asks for a TV/cable provider. I thought this was free to see that was the whole reason why I download the app, big waste of time. Full Review

  • NBC Sports
    Chris Gill Published date: February 10, 2018

    Works fine most of the time, occasional dropping and having to restart the app on my Pixel 2. The ad cutting is infuriating though as it cuts out to an ad right as Olympic event results are being posted so you miss what happened sometimes... Should really fix that as it's sort of unacceptable, especially in historical streams that aren't live. Full Review

  • NBC Sports
    Vanessa Valencia Published date: February 12, 2018

    forced stoppage ongoing.might be related to the format when watching on chromebook. I can't watch replays at all. This makes it useless for viewing the Olympics. Works much better when on my pixel phone, but lots of commercials. Full Review

    ingrid mcrae Published date: February 14, 2018

    I would like to beable to have a larger viewing area. All of a sudden there are these two sections that take up half of the already half of screen i had before. It would be nicer if there wasn't any unnecessary solicitation for what I'm already watching. Thank you! Full Review

    Marcus H Published date: February 11, 2018

    I get a "Too many redirects error" when trying to authenticate my cable provider. So i cannot stream anything with the new update... defeats the whole purpose of the app. Useless! Full Review

    Stefan Lucyk Published date: February 14, 2018

    Freezes, forced closing often, ads every time you want to watch the game... now it doesn't want to accept my password after uninstalling and installing it to try and make it work better. Terrible. No stars if possible. Full Review

  • NBC Sports
    Nate Rock Published date: February 12, 2018

    Constantly freezes. Can't watch for more than 5 mins without having to restart. When the main purpose is watching live event you'd think it'd perform better. The news and other features aren't better than any other app so there's no point to keep it for that. Full Review

    Robin Hood Published date: February 10, 2018

    it is totally ridiculous to have to see the same commercial about every 20 seconds, cutting off events and commentary mid sentence. decent app, but ill NEVER see mama mia [the commercial we kept seeing] on principle. Full Review

    Kory Bockman Published date: February 11, 2018

    This app is okay. It has the best schedule of all the Olympics apps I've tried so far. And I guess you need this in the US if you want to watch on the go. But there's no medal table of any kind. Weird. Full Review

    Cody Wagner Published date: February 10, 2018

    Once again NBC comes up with a fail. Great idea for an app and it would be awesome if it worked. Seems like they can't handle the bandwidth. Clips skip all over on playback and live feeds only play for a few seconds, if they make it out of buffering. Full Review

    Jim Duval Published date: February 15, 2018

    Works well and great access to missed event's. Video scrolling needs thumbnail preview. Frustrating to find a specific competitor in a long file. Metadata links would work too Full Review

    Natalie Wright Published date: February 10, 2018

    Unreliable. Wanted to watch the live streams of Olympic Curling. Had to settle for my 3rd choice match, because the others kept stalling & cutting out. The commercials always play smoothly. Full Review

    E Grinstead Published date: February 15, 2018

    You must have cable, direct, or dish, and login to really watch all the content. I did but many don't and that's a drag. Olympics should be for all to see!!! Inciting spirit and unity should be taken as a responsibility by networks, in our nation struggling with so many odds. The scheduling and reply content needs to be improved. Don't show it's accessible then tell me it's concluded! Full Review
