The NBC Sports app is one of the better sports apps on the Windows 10 Store, and it lets users watch live streaming broadcasts from its network. With NBC being the main US network for the 2016 Rio Olympics, the app got a major update on Windows 10.
The Windows 10 app from NBC Sports has gotten mixed reviews from fans, and some like it and some get frustrated with its reliability. But, with the Olympic update, NBC Sports added reliability fixes and squashed bugs in a major way.
Live & Recorded Sports
The NBC Sports app on Windows 10, allows for users to stream live events including the upcoming Rio Olympics, NFL Sunday & Thursday Night Football, NHL Regular & Stanley Cup Playoff Games, PG Tour Golf, Premier League Soccer, and much more.
The app is mainly focused on US viewers, and gives users ways to enjoy the streaming sports action on any desktop, tablet, or mobile device. It also includes regional Comcast Sportsnet feeds for major cities in the United States.
Many users don’t like the fact that the NBC Sports app does require an active subscription to a cable or satellite provider. You will need to sign in with your TV provider’s username and password, and you can then start using the app.
The bug fixes make the app more reliable, and works easier across 3G, 4G, LTE, or Wifi networks. It works with AT&T U-Verse, Cablevision, Charer, Cox, DirecTV, DISH, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon FiOS TV networks in the US.
The NBC Sports app is like many sports apps, and is great for cable subscribers looking to extend their viewing of sports. But, until it is freed from networks, cordcutters likely will always find reasons to not like it.
