NBC has launched a new feature for its users accessing NBC iOS app, which is called ‘Single Sign-On’. This ‘SSO’ feature allows users to watch their favorite shows on iPhone and iPad without signing in repeatedly. To know how this feature works and where it is available, read the post below.
With streaming apps overtaking traditional cable television at an unimaginable pace, it is just a matter of time before streaming apps completely overpower cable TV to become the most preferred choice for the users. It is not just the colossal amount of content, which is available on streaming apps, but tonnes of other features as well.
If you are using streaming apps to quench your thirst for premium entertainment, then you are among the millions who are doing the same on a daily basis. Now, we would like to divert your attention to another great aspect of the streaming apps, especially NBC Activate app. If you have been typing in your cable TV credentials for each iPhone or iPad, then you don’t have to do it anymore.
You can easily watch top shows on your iPhones and iPads without signing in again and again on your NBC’s iOS app. Reason being, NBC iOS app works with Apple’s single sign-on (SSO) feature, which in our opinion is a great feature that has been added by NBC in recent times.
In order to activate this feature on your iPhone or iPad, you just need to go to ‘Settings’ of the device followed by selecting ‘TV provider’ and then, entering your cable TV credentials to log into all the supported apps.
As good as this update, the company wants to make it better, but for that, users must have Apple TV as the network’s tvOS application worked with SSO from the beginning.
This feature is going to remain synchronized across devices given that the users make use the same Apple ID. This also implies that the users will have to log in once on their phone, tablet or streaming box in order to access the streamable shows that NBC has to offer on all the devices.
This is a slick feature, which was launched by NBC to provide convenience to users who are operating the NBC app on multiple devices. As far as the availability of the feature is concerned, then it is only going to be available for users living in the US.
If you want to know as to which apps have SSO support, then you will have to go to the App Store followed by selecting ‘Featured’ tab and then, finding the icon that shows your cable provider’s logo.
With NBC launching a ‘single sign-on’ feature, many more apps will look to do the same as this feature is really useful for users who operate a single app on multiple devices and don’t want to sign in every time they want to see their favorite shows.
