NBC after adding live streaming to its mobile app has been included into the list of entertainment companies that offer live content to its customers on mobile apps. However, there is a catch in this new feature provided by NBC. The ‘live streaming’ feature is only available to certain markets, so if you are in those markets, only then, you will be able to access NBC live streaming on its mobile app.
It has been a long time since NBC has launched live streaming functionality on its mobile app. People have also given a big ‘thumbs up’ to the feature saying that the feature has allowed them to watch shows as they air on the network, but there are certain conditions that need to be met in order to enjoy the live streaming.
The mobile app is available on both major platforms such as Android as well as iOS. Users will be able to watch all the current line-up along with a wide range of older TV series. With the majority of shows available for anyone to view, there are some that will ask them to subscribe to a certain cable service such as AT&T U-Verse, Verizon Fios, Optimum and Comcast Xfinity. You will not be able to enjoy the service if you have done cord cutting or still using a basic cable TV.
The only way to watch live content on NBC, if NBC owns that particular local affiliate station where you live. If someone else owns that station, then the live streaming is not going to work for you. If you live in a renowned city such as New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., then you will be able to find a station affiliated with NBC, but the same can’t be said for cities that are lesser known.
You will be need a cable TV account along with a local NBC-affiliate, which is what makes the NBC app a lot tougher than ABC. If you don’t know what ABC app does is that it asks you to sign in with a cable TV account after which, you can access any show of your choosy.
When it comes to CBS app, you don’t have to log into any cable TV network, but then, you will have access to a limited number of episodes of TV series that you can watch for free. If you want to access more content, then you will have to subscribe to CBS All Access service that you can get by paying $6 a month.
If you are looking to have NBC mobile app, then you need to make sure that you are residing in a location where the station is affiliated with NBC, as that will make things a lot easier. If you need more information, free to contact NBC Activate.
