Basically, the app enables you to watch what you want, where you want and how you want.

What's New in Version 3.0.2
* We identified and smashed a few technical bugs like we were the Hulk (did we mention we offer classic TV shows?)
* We told Airplay to continue streaming when you lock your device. Because your binge-watching shouldn’t have to kill your battery.
Only issues caused by Ads
For the most part, the app works ok. It's when it goes to commercial that it sometimes freezes or just continually looks like it is trying to load. It would be nice for the app to let you go back to where you left off after you have to close out of the program entirely. Instead, you get stuck watching 1 round of commercials at the start & then usually again after you've forwarded to where you left off.
The worst video player ever created
Even with the latest "update", the app is constantly dropping the video stream, where other apps have no problem. Seems there is never a streaming problem during the tons of ads they stick you with though. And when you're dropped, you have to go through all those ads again, from the beginning. It must take me 2 hours to watch a 1 hour program. It also takes several minutes to start the episode. Sometimes they don't even start. If you think watching NBC on your computer is an option, think again. Rarely is video and audio in sync.
NBC App is Good
The only drawback I see is there are some shows you want to watch, that you must provide your Cable/satellite Provider, and log into that providers site, before you can view one episode of a show. I experienced that watching "Night Shift". Is great otherwise.
