Too many commercials
As far as content and quality, it's not too bad with my old ipad. The problem is the commercials. Anytime you start a program, you have to watch a few minutes of commercials. Also, if you are looking for specific time within an event, each time you change the timeline you are in for another few minutes of the same commercials. If it takes 4 or 5 times to get to where you want to be, that's at least 10 minutes of commercials before you even get to see what you want to see it where it is. This was especially bad during the Winter Olympics when sometimes the event replay didn't start at the beginning of the program.
All this with a banner ad that the bottom of the screen continuously.
I know ads are needed, but this is outrageous.
Horrible App and Network
I wish I could give this app and NBC negative stars. Last season with Fox and FoxSoccer I was able to watch 10 out of 10 BPL games during the weekend on the television. Now since the ridiculous move to NBC, even with the "live extra coverage", I am missing games. Only a couple games are now televised, and with no recording capability on the "live extra", and the difficulty with switching between streaming games (as many of the games are played live at the same time), I am missing my favorite teams play. Not to mention if I am unable to watch live, I can not record the "live extra" games. This coverage is horrible, and I really hope the Premier League goes back to Fox. The "live extra" portion also crashes constantly, and buffers frequently. Thinking about switching to satellite to get better coverage of the Premier League.
Nice, not great
Great option to watch Premiere League games. They offer main cam or tactical cam. BUT...the commercials always look clear, the game not so much. Quality is unreliable. The game will freeze at some point and force you to close and open again and it will happen during an important goal or replay--count on it. Don't you dare accidentally touch the screen on an iPad during the game--you will regret it because it will direct you to another game or commercial and mess everything up.
I suggest you download this along with Comcast TvGo so when this freezes or looks terrible you can open the Comcast app and watch NBCSN LIVE as a backup.
