Too Many Errors

I live in a rural area near the east coast and always thought the problems this app had with freezing, losing connection to the TV provider I use, losing sound while the audio continues and vice versa were due to where I live and less-than-state-of-the-art service, but after reading all these complaints, I see that I am not alone. My iPad Air 2 and my ISP are all apparently fine (I am, after all, able to stream on other apps without problem), it’s the app that’s having trouble!! MSNBC news casts are my go-to sources for honest news when I can stand the constant breaks in and interference with their continuity. And one last complaint: I can almost take the broadcast difficulties better than the frequent, repetitive, stupid commercials which seem to come at too, too frequent intervals. I stopped watching television because of these inane ads and I fear I may have to go the same route with your app. With so many people complaining, I am amazed the app has not improved significantly already. It is currently the news shows on MSNBC that keep me using your app; my patience, however, is wearing thin.

Not that many issues, but not perfect - And the Ad Serving.. WOW!

Unlike many people, I have a few problems but can generally watch consistently and with few problems. It might freeze for a while, but a quick close and re-open fixes that. I use an iPad 4 and an iPad 2 with little or no issues.

One thing tho' that baffles me completely is the ad serving. Every single ad break features truncated ads, either missing the beginning or end. I have been streaming all day today and pretty much every ad, in every break since I started watching Morning Joe, has cut off after about 20 secs, and before the ad ever declares who it is for, or comes in in the middle of the ad. I was an ad buyer for a while and I certainly wouldn't have been happy paying for primetime slots that never serve my client's ad to the point of the brand payoff. I want MSNBC to succeed and if they can't even do the fundamentals like serving ads for a full 30 secs, God knows how they will prosper.

Update: V6.0.2
Wow! So far SO much better. Good job with the new UI and all the layout and new features.

Keep it up.

Thank you for putting some real effort behind this update. I have always been able to stream, but the quality and latency was pretty bad, and the stream would often hang for many, many minutes, if it worked at all...

BUT.. This version seems to have solved a lot of these issues and also given us AirPlay (thank you!!!).

Keep on keeping on MSNBC.

Working OK for me... Why??

All the excoriating negative reviews here left me confused, as I'm not experiencing any of the problems described. After giving this a bit of thought, I've come up with a couple ideas that might explain it.

1) Maybe my ISP is faster or more consistent than most. I'm going through Xfinity with a measured downstream in excess of 100Mbps. Don't remember what it's advertised as, but that's what I'm getting.

2) Maybe my TV provider (Dish) is better than most. Maybe their interface with MSNBC is better than most? I never even have to sign in at MSNBC anymore because the app remembers my Dish account and apparently verifies it in background. (Using the iPhone app.)

3) Speaking of which... Maybe the iPhone app was separately developed from the apps directed at other devices and is just better.

In short, I don't get crashes, freezes, logging in over and over... Just doesn't happen. So, if so many others are experiencing these things, but NOT with other networks' apps... that does kinda go to the idea that this app is maybe coded inefficiently or in some way poorly. You shouldn't have to have an A-list TV/internet setup to watch a news feed.

I hate to see MSNBC take these hits on their website; they're one of the few entities holding this country together against the rising tide of lies and deceit. They need to be worthy of our support.
