Not Recommended for Cord-Cutters w/ SlingTV
I'm cord cutter!
The only service provider I have is sling TV on Roku. So I get to watch all of the ESPN network games. However when they are not broadcasting certain college games based on rights, I jump over to NBC sports live extra. However, when I try to verify my provider (Activation required for live streaming sports), Sling TV is not listed. Sling TV is owned by dish network which 'is' listed on their provider list.
The end result is if you do not have a provider listed on their list or you don't have a provider at all, you will not be able to watch live streaming sports on the NBC sports live extra app. For clarification I said "LIVE" streaming. You can watch highlight reels all day but not "LIVE" streaming... I'd say it again but I think you get the point.
NBC Sports Live Extra
Coverage of golf using this app is only slightly better than using the Golf Live Extra app. There is way too much buffering on both of them, but somewhat less on NBC. NASCAR coverage is fairly good. The best feature of this app with regard to NASCAR is the ability to view full event replays. If I miss qualifying, for example, I can always watch it using this replay feature. However, don't wait too long. Items are not held in the cache for very long.
Useless piece of garbage. All I wanted to do was watch Sunday Night Football, but the lag, pausing, buffering, and crashing made that basically impossible. Stream a high def feature length movie on Netflix? No problem. Watch a live football game? It's probably easier to land a man on Mars. The executives at NBC are obviously too busy worrying about returning to the glory days of televisions instead of embracing the inevitable future and intelligently inserting their medium into our lives in an easily accessible way. Those old farts need to hurry up die and let someone with vision and courage takeover. The future is happening with or without you.
