Like so many other reviewers, I too am a cable cutter, and someone who has watched the Olympics ever since I was also that little 4 year old performing camel spins on the ice rink her dad built on the back patio every winter with dreams of Peggy Fleming, the 7 year old blazing down the mountains dreaming of Jean Claude Killi, the high school student cheering on Mark Spitz because one of his swim teammates attended my own school, and so on. The Olympics belongs to EVERYONE, not just cable subscribers! This app claims to give you full access...but does NOT tell you it's for a supposed 30 minute free trial per day, that's broadcasting 12 minutes of commercials. NBC bought the rights years ago - and standard broadcasts deliver content with the endless commercials to pay for the licensing. I'd put up with the commercials gladly, if I got to watch an entire curling match start to finish, a whole hockey game, a complete qualifying series for luge and skeleton and bobsled, the entire race for all the alpine skiers from gold medal to last place finishers - which is EXACTLY what those cable subscribers get. The enhanced coverage is very well done - but the teaser time limited amount is INFURIATING!!! My very cheapskate self would consent to paying for the app, if it actually allowed me to watch even the standard coverage,nor the full live streams and replays. I plan to delete this thing as soon as the Olympics are over...infuriating!

Only Option


Really your only option to see any sport beyond figure skating as it seems NBC now wants you to buy into all of their paid channels. Miss the days of seeing a constant feed of Olympic sports on the local NBC channel, especially those that aren’t broadcast between the Olympic breaks. Disappointing to think of the many people missing out on all of the coverage. It is 2018 and it seems we’ve taken 20 steps backwards. The app also inserts random ads right in the middle of competition without pausing the feed. I’ve missed so many final runs, big jumps, and more because of these interruptions. There seems to be about 5 ads they continuously interrupt, I can’t stand seeing the same ad over and over again. I know every business needs funding to operate, but figure out how to strategically place advertising without forcing viewers to miss key times in these events. The live feed also buffers about every 30-60 seconds, I have to hit play on my Apple TV remote for the hope it will start the feed again and I won’t miss anything. Often it will buffer in fast forward to catch up after pausing and again, I miss key times in events.

NBC Double Standard


NBC has been broadcasting through the regular airwaves since before the dawn of time (the early 20th century). Every four years, viewers could tune in and watch the Olympics for free (paid for by the advertisers--which is why we put up with commercials). But now, NBC wants users of this App to be subscribers to cable television--which MANY of us are dumping (I did last year--and Love being free of the cost). So for those of us that want to use the Internet to revive a signal, instead of airwaves, we get locked out. If I decided to get a digital converter box and antenna and hook it to my TV, I could watch for free, but because I want to use the Internet medium to receive the signal, I'm locked out because I no longer have a cable subscription. So, this App is worthless to me because it's giving me a countdown timer for "free preview" that, when it ends, will require that I enter my cable TV subscription credentials to continue. Sorry NBC--your App gets a FAIL for failing to understand that the Internet = Airwaves of the 21st Century. And by the time you figure this out, many of us will have gotten used to not watching you at all. #CutCable #InternetFreedomNow
