Wifi Streaming through TV Provider doesn't work anymore!!!

This app used to be awesome but they did something during an update that completely ruined the Wifi Streaming capabilities on any of my iPhones or other mobile devices. Also, I could only use the Streaming service through my Roku TV up until about 2 weeks ago when they updated that app and ruined it too! I love all the other features of this app but most importantly I want to be able to STREAM! Please fix this. Another thing that bugs me is they used to have Xfinity as a provider (although it didn't work properly when they did) but then it disappeared. I've had to change cable companies just to get NFL Network. Thank God it's on Sling TV & FuboTV now. Either way, please, whatever you did to the app that makes it impossible to watch NFL Network through the app live, fix it!!! No matter if I'm using Dish, FuboTV or Sling, after I sign in it just goes right back to the login page telling me that I need to sign in to my provider to watch live. This is beyond annoying. On my Roku TV it stays on a loading screen forever even though I've deleted the app 5 times and reinstalled. Nothing makes a difference. I really want to be able to watch NFL Network on my iPhone again but I don't understand why that's not a priority to fix for your developers. This is a serious issue that's been going on for over a year and I read other reviews that say the same thing I'm saying. Fix the Streaming service please and you'll get 5 stars!

Great idea. Lousy execution.

Live streaming works quite well in general. The problems occur when playing back games after they are done, whether it be video or radio broadcasts. If you just play the content, it usually does well enough. However, if you want to skip around in the game, it is very inconsistent, oftentimes resulting in the stream starting over again from the beginning. Let’s say I want to skip back 30 seconds to watch a play again. There is simply no good way to do this and it’s just problematic for the app. Oftentimes you cannot even see where you are in the video because it does not display all the numbers (the game I am listening to reads “02...”, so I know only that I am sometime in the 2nd hour). This makes accurately moving earlier or later in the stream extremely awkward, ineffective, and pretty much impossible. How about adding the now-standard option buttons to skip 15 seconds forward or backward in the stream? This is NOT hard to do. Also, if you have the stream displaying in full screen mode, you pretty much can’t skip the stream forward or backward. You have to decrease the display size, then you can do it, albeit chunkily. It’s remarkable how far ahead MLB is compared to NFL when it comes to streaming content. MLB makes the experience nearly seamless. With the NFL, it’s an unpleasant experience.

Verizon mobile customers don’t get nfl network?

I second some of the comments below. In addition to being a Verizon mobile customer I’m also a Gamepass subscriber and NFL REDZONE add on in app subscriber. Up until this last Thursday September 20th I was able to watch NFL Network via my WiFi Network. I just selected the NFL Network option and the broadcast came on. Then after Thursday’s update I continually get the “select TV Provider” option. First of all if I had NFL network on cable why would I watch it on my phone?!? Secondly as a Verizon customer I was under the impression I could watch the NFL Network without a tv provider. Furthermore why would this be an option up until sept 20th but now NOT an option. If written and received the trope Nfl App help advice: clear browser, sign in sign out, reinstall app etc. please feel free to reach out to me and/or update the app so this can be remedied...just to watch a little NFL news guys...not that big of a deal. Happy to write a review of Gamepass functionality on this app also. Subpar not fitting of what I paid for. No player search. No game search. Not close to the full online functionality (which is ok). Watching Redzone on the app is mediocre, usually takes 5-10 restarts to get the Redzone functionality to kick in. Other than that great job! Keep up the good work!

Game pass is garbage

Game Pass on your television is awful. Awful. I have had nearly every game ruined this past season. Why? The app is such garbage it will constantly fast forward to the end of the game. If you try to fast forward 30 seconds it jumps to the end of the game. It crashes all the time and you go back to the beginning - or to the end. I have paid for Game Pass since it came out - why is a great question for my therapist - and it has been garbage since day one. This year however has been so beyond infuriating it is impossible to find the right words- find whatever word you can that describes what makes you want to smash your expensive tv with a hammer and give up football for the rest of your life. If you’re unsure whether you should pay, for the love of the lord, don’t. Please do not give these greedy incompetents another dime. Watch the highlights for free. It’s all you are going to wind up with anyway. May the makers of NFL game pass be forced to watch the same game played by the Cleveland browns and Jacksonville in a bottom level of Dante’s inferno. This game will begin with 3 minutes of commercials, freeze, then jump to the end of the game as Blake Bortles shakes hands with Case Keenum - and repeat for eternity.

Coach’s film

For the most part the app is awesome. I really like to re-watch certain games and it’s great to be able to watch the condensed game. But I really like to watch the all-22 film of my favorite teams on Tuesday’s. I have a football background, and i am sure most that use this feature were either a player or a coach at one time. So in comparison to hudl, or the various film softwares i have used over the years this one is by far the worst. You can only rewind or fast forward in increments of 10 seconds, whereas most platforms let you rewind second by second. So when i want to rewatch each receivers route (or see where the guard misstepped, or see why the safety got out of position, etc) i can only do that in 10 second increments (where most plays are not 10 full seconds) so it turns into a lot wasted time. It seems like an easy fix. Realistically, most fans do not watch the coach’s film, because there is no sound and it is not the view we are used to on TV. I would assume the vast majority of people using this feature are players and coach’s, so i think catering to that audience for this one area of the app could really improve things.

Not Happy!

I am confused as to why the latest update to the NFL mobile app has take away my ability to watch NFL network without login has been taken away. I have Verizon as my mobile provider and I believe that should give me access to local and prime time NFL games as well as Playoffs games and NFL network. There is no option in the other account to select verizon as my mobile provider. The options listed are only for TV providers. Please notify me if their is a way to connect to my verizon mobile account. I remember doing this two years ago and having it be fairly simple and I don’t believe I had to do that again before the start of the 2017 season. Please help me with this because I don’t understand why this has happened. Also why has the ability to view games from past seasons been removed this seems to be highly unnecessary. Please go back to the format the app was in for the last few seasons it was much better. Also recently noticed after other people pointed it out that favorited team games don’t show up at the top please change this back to the way it was. I also think the the presentation on the app looked better last year

Good for streaming, Many Alerts Bugs though

This app works just fine for streaming. But the alert preferences absolutely don't work at all for me. Im a software developer myself - I'm very tech saavy. I have disabled alerts for every team, and NFL wide, except the Steelers. I have checked this many times. But guess what? I'm still getting frequent alerts for tons of definitely non-steelers content. It's incredibly frustrating - not everyone wants to be alerted every time someone, somewhere, snaps a football. It's alert overload, and their Alert Preferences section settings seem to have zero effect. I had to disable alerts for the entire app in my OS settings because the app wasn't following ANY of the in-app alert preferences. Now I can't get any alerts, and am following the Steelers on a different (non-NFL!) app. Super frustrating. This should be an easy thing to get right - and it's either a blatant bug or intentional UI hiding of the "real" alert preferences. Yuck - bad/manipulative app design. The NFL has all the money in the world and yet their app fails on the most basic features.

Misses the Point

The re-designed interface looks pretty nice, but is fails in some of its most basic functions. Most importantly, clicking the “Games” tab indeed shows a listing of the day’s games, but no scores! Even when the game is finished! You click on the specific game and still no score! You have to WORK to figure out the scores—I just don’t understand it. My other main complaint is that for the $99 I spent on Game Pass, one should not have to watch commercials in order to view video highlights elsewhere in the app. Podcasters and other content providers give privileged access to their content for basically any level of support. Here, you pay $99 (for the home town radio broadcasts) and get some other features that I happen to not care about, but you don’t get to watch highlights without sitting through commercials every other one. I paid the $99 essentially to hear Merril Reese call Eagles games, but for that kind of money I expect a much better product from the NFL. Surely this enormously well-resources organization can put out a top-quality app if they wanted to.

If you’re thinking about GamePass, save your money.

This app is glitchy, slow, and inconsistent. I (try to) use it on my phone, iPad and TV. It works poorly on all of them. My biggest complaint is with GamePass. I want to watch my team and I live “out of market” so I wait for the game to end to watch the replay. First, I have to log in every time. Why does every other app on my TV have the ability to remember who I am except this one? Then, I am shown a graphic with the final score, which I have intentionally avoided for the last three hours while the game was in progress. When I can finally get the replay to load, it is glitchy, and often requires two or three restarts. Today, for the first time, I see I can’t get the full game replay until 2-4 hours after the game. This is new, and not an improvement. I take some comfort knowing I’m not the only one. This week I heard 3 separate journalists ripping the app as they have difficulty watching the all-22 footage. This is the last year the NFL gets my money. This thing is worthless to me and I wish I could get the rest of the season refunded.

GamePass

At this point in the streaming video market, I cannot give a worse review for this app and the GamePass service. I want to watch my team out of market and every week it is a new frustration. Last week, my teams game would not play on AppleTV, but every other game did, so I figured out a workaround to AirPlay from my phone (would play on my phone but not the AppleTV). This week, AirPlay doesn’t work from the app, will play on phone but refuses to play in AirPlay mode. I can confirm that AirPlay works from every other video app on my phone, but with NFL, I am left to only watching on my phone. Every week, the video scrubber is difficult to use, making it hard to skip through breaks without scrubbing way ahead in the game. Why can’t they just make it work like literally any other video player? The hide scores feature also does very little to hide scores throughout the app, so good luck not spoiling your games. All in all, this would be OK if it were 5 years ago, but at this point, this app and service are garbage in the market and not worth the subscription price. NFL, c’mon man!

Inconvenient and confusing

I have had NFL Mobile for a few years now and have always enjoyed the layout and format of the app; however, the newest version/change is very inconvenient and confusing. Although all of the information is there about your “favorite team”, it requires lots of scrolling and searching to simply find the news stories. The older version was more colorful and organized which made it more enjoyable. Before, if I had read a news story, there would be a check saying I had read it which was very useful. I also can no longer select multiple favorite teams to get updates. I used to have three teams favorited, but thats not possible any more. Lastly, I found a glitch. Two days ago, (Monday) I finally received the final scoring and game score updates on the Ravens preseason game which was Thursday night. It took 4 days for my phone to receive the game notifications. The current version is functional and works, but the old version was much better in my opinion, I don’t find the app as enjoyable anymore.

The app is absolute crap.

I cannot believe that I paid more than one hundred dollars to be able to listen to my Broncos play live. Since I now live in Ohio, I was very excited to be able to at least catch the game while working in the yard, or even while watching my second-favorite team, the Bengals. The app won’t load at least 75% of the time I open it. Or, it will open, think with the swirling circle of death, and freeze there. When I am able to get the game pass to load, after multiple times trying, the simulcast is choppy, with varying volume and bad mixing with crowd noise, and then, 100% of the time, it cuts out and won’t come back- unless I close the app, then open it multiple times, to try to get it to load. How a multi-billion company can make such a piece of crap that only frustrates fans is beyond me. My advice- don’t get it. Find a radio app that lets you listen to the game on an affiliated station in your home state. Using this BTW on an IPhone 12 Pro Max with 5G. Streaming is a joke but only with this app- everything else on my phone for streaming works well. Junk.

Game pass still a no go

It’s late October, and I still can’t log in to Game Pass to watch the content I paid for in either the iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV versions of this app. But the same credentials will let me log in and view it (with a poorer experience) in Safari. What gives? My messages to NFL support give only canned responses, and the website help says that there is a known issue and please be patient. We are entering week 7 and it’s still not working! It worked last year... what broke? I don’t want a refund, I want what I paid for. I want to see NFL games on my big screen, and on my iPad Pro without all the wonkiness of using the web browser (which can’t cast the video to my big screen because, well, reasons). Developer incompetence? An argument with Apple about not getting a cut of the revenue from me buying Game Pass directly from the NFL and not throught the app (I would vigorously side with the NFL if that’s the case)? I don’t care. I’ve spent thousands on expensive hardware, networking, and licensed content to have a great NFL experience and I’m not getting it. Fix now.

Too Glitchy

When I went in to write a review for this app I was shocked to see it has a near 5 star approval rating. I just knew so many were experiencing the same issues which would cause the rating of this app to be no higher than 3 stars. I should state I’ve had this app for years and use it DAILY. But the glitches that come with this app have only grown over time. I give this app 2 stars because of the quality of the information provided. But daily I have articles that won’t load. The app completely crashes and I need to re-open. I prefer my iPhone to have a dark reading background with white text. But articles will still have black lettering making it unreadable with this format. And just to throw it in, a 30 second ad for a 1 minute long video clip I want to watch. I’ll continue to use this app. But I find a much more pleasurable experience using the ESPN app. It’s just I ONLY care about the NFL. I only caution future users to be prepared to be frustrated on a daily basis.

The worst app and customer service experience I’ve ever had

Last year, week 8, suddenly the app stopped working. Every single game had an error message that the video wouldn’t load. I tried on a web browser and it just wouldn’t load videos. I tried multiple interfaces and computers and all nothing. Email customer service and they send a generic reply about clearing cache, which obviously isn’t the answer. I sent a constant barrage of emails and video showing the problem over the course of 3 weeks with no meaningful solutions, or even acknowledgement that they had screwed up. I gave up for two weeks, came back and suddenly all games worked fine again. Then, when the package i purchased was for all regular season games, my subscription was canceled by them on December 31. I missed half the season while paying for all of it. They sent silly emails in response to serious questions and generally acted like they didn’t care I was getting screwed. This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with any company.

“Upgrade” is a disappointment

We’ve had Gamepass since it came out and I have had the NFL app for years and years. The execution of Gamepass within the App has gotten worst from last year (which I did not think was possible). In fact, the NFL app has gotten progressively worse since it came out. How is that possible? If I could give this no stars, I would. Here are my complaints for iPhone app: - Navigation to older games is not intuitive and not easy to do. - Favorite team does not appear at the top when navigating to older games - Audio does not play in the background and cuts out when phone display goes off but not all the time - when audio cuts out a black screen appears at the bottom of the app where the audio should be and nothing to do about it. You have to exit the app and get back (then have to do the rigamarole of finding the game again) - once you get back to the game it definitely does not go to where you left off and it is almost impossible to get back to where you were and scrubbing function is awful for the audio. Impossible to know where you were and impossible to get back even if you do know. - the app crashes with Gamepass audio. - if you navigate to read articles within NFL while listening to the audio which you should be able to do and you accidentally click on a video it’ll either crash or start the video. And because of the above navigation and scrubbing problems this is incredibly frustrating. At least ask me if that’s what I want to do!

Needs better execution

The most recent version for both iOS and iPadOS just shows a banner that says “Tap to Retry.” Apparently a known issue and they are working on it, but overall the execution is quite poor. Most critically, GamePass functionality is broken. If you start a game and then go do something else, it forgets your location in the playback except under some circumstances which seem to be when the app doesn’t get swapped out. Maybe, who knows, but it’s almost random and doesn’t meet with the expectations from other streaming apps and services. Your position in the stream should be recorded in the cloud DB such that you can return to the same game playback and position from any device or browser. THIS IS BASIC EXPECTED FUNCTIONALITY. Layout of functions in then iOS, iPadOS, and Apple TV apps is poor as well. I shouldn’t need to find GamePass and scroll through weeks and finals. There is plenty of screen real estate so just have an easier selection mechanism.

Remains a terrible app after all the updates

The NFL app is truly an amazing work of failure. The NFL has all this money yet cannot put up a quality app. It does work, eventually, maybe, 100% of the time I load up this app there’s a significant lockdown and it cannot be used for anything for 1-2 minutes. Eventually the app catches up and I can check scores. I downloaded and use the Yahoo Sports app for score checking for NFL because I open that app and it works! This NFL app has been a heaping pile of crap for nearly a decade now. If anyone actually worked for their living this app would have been stripped down and redone to work like every other digital content offering app. I can pull up 4K steaming TV content and set things to record in under 10 seconds on my phone with every other similar type of app. Developers need to start over - they’re beating a dead horse and I just can’t use this app to do anything in a reasonable amount of time.

Nice to have but overall broken

Don’t get me wrong, I love to have the NFL app to watch the games on the go but overall it’s a broken app and they obviously just plain out refuse to fix it. My biggest issue which has been a somehow unfixed issue all season long is multiple players missing from the stat lines such as trey lance and Zach Wilson. As well as issues such as the games in the scores tab not loading and having to reload the app several times in order to view the games. As far as the problem with the players missing go, it’s not like they aren’t on the app all together, In the plays section of a game it will show the name and picture of the player, but they do not show up in the stats column. Considering this has been a problem since week 1 of the pre season and it is week 18 upon writing this review, it is just plain laziness on the NFL’s part. Just another example of how incompetent the NFL has proven to be lately.

Each year, the app gets worse.

I have had the NFL app for years now, and I loved checking the app for scores and highlights, as well as streaming games whenever I have time to watch. Each year, the app as a whole has gotten worse and more confusing. This season is the worst update yet. I can’t even check scores here anymore because it was never as accurate as it was before. Sometimes, the time on the scoreboard will freeze too, even after restarting and refreshing it. As far as the highlights section goes, I can’t even load a video half the time I try to click on it, and when I do, sometimes the app will give me the boot and I have to load the app again. Also, checking the standings is a joke. The standings aren’t even organized by record, but rather by alphabetical order. It has never happened on the previous updates until this season. I hardly use the app now because I can’t enjoy it without an issue occurring. The older layouts and updates were much better and easier to use.

NFL APP ... ha!
My parents didn't pay to watch football... My parents parents didn't pay to watch football... Why should i have to pay to watch football!
I get it, the stadiums are filling at partial capacity and the NFL is making up for lost revenue due to the pandemic. There are other means of making up revenue than hitting hard the average NFL viewer!
For instance ADVERTISERS.
Basketball, baseball...they want to charge the fans in excess. I get that. Football? I've never heard of such a thing.
Require me to pay for game pass because i use free Digital TV is very discouraging!!!

This is one Packer fans opinion.

Have a Problem with NFL? Report Issue

Leave a comment:



Why should I report an Issue with NFL?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of NFL to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a NFL customer and are running into a problem, Justuseapp might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using NFL.
