Ratings and Reviews
Love the idea but it’s not delivering for me.
Start of this nba season I was really excited to see how it would unfold because of all the offseason activity that took place. I had bought the nba season pass in the past using my local cable provider and loved being able to watch any game, but due to 1) work obligations and 2) living on the west coast (PST) I couldn’t watch many of the games and the pass held no value for me.
I have used the app to watch games as I am out and about and really love how it works— even with the slight delay in timing. What I have found horrible (and some what of a turnoff) has been when I try to cast it to my Visio Smart TV. Each time I do this, it starts out fine and then about 1 min into the casting it cuts off and goes to a blue screen that says “Sorry, Something went Wrong”. Doesn’t tell me how to fix it or who I should call to attempt to identify what the problem is. Just cuts off. This happens repeatedly without fail each time I cast and re-cast the game. If the team could help me fix that, I’d move my rating up a star. Also, my app doesn’t show me any stats or scores. If that can be resolved my, I’d move it one more star.
Hello, we're sorry to hear that you have been running into issues while using our product and its services.

It's not bad, but the delay that the video feeds operate on frequently creates an obvious difference between the score during "live" action and the score visible on the app. There's no (obvious) in-app option to switch video feeds, and the video quality varies wildly even when you have tons of available bandwidth on your network, with long periods of lower-quality video and occasional freezes. Instead of pouring millions into VR add-ons, the NBA should be shoring up base functionality - you'd think they were hard up for cash instead of sitting on billions of dollars.
The one thing that seems worthwhile is the package that allows you to watch commercial-free games (of course you'd think that's what you pay $200 for, but no; they'll continue to show ads if they think you'll pay for them). It is a bit weird to see courtside activity during a road game, since obviously it's the home team's feed that provides that action, but it's far superior to the garbage commercials you'd see instead.
Thanks for offering your feedback - we will take your suggestions into account as we work towards improving the fan experience throughout the NBA App.
I’m really into basketball, so that’s the main reason why I downloaded this app. I’ve been using it for several months, but currently run into problems. For one, it’s stupid u need to purchase the league pass just to watch/stream videos. When I first got the app, it let me watch a few videos, but a few weeks later it stopped working, and there’s no way I’m wasting money on it bc the price is just ridiculous. Second, there has been an error watching videos. Just yesterday, I was about to watch a video and it just loaded and loaded and loaded and...my point is that it never played. It always says no “there was an error playing your video.” However, I am still able to read articles, but starting yesterday videos won’t load. Please fix bc this is just sad that the “official” NBA app doesn’t even work properly 🤦🏿♂️SMH
Edit: Thank you very much. It started working properly about a week ago, so everything is fine now. Thanks for the reply 😁😁
We're glad that your issue is resolved. Thank you for the positive review. We hope that we can keep you satisfied!
