  • 2018 2.0 Android tv version horrible

    By seriouslyconcerned55555
    You can’t even pause or rewind or fast forward the game!! All you can do is start the game then select Back on your remote to exit it entirely. What a colossal screw up!
  • Nice app

  • Audio Only has been FIXED!

    By Jamesofberkeley
    I 100% cancelled my subscription for the 2018 season when the Audio Only feature wouldn’t work unless the phone screen was open and on the app. After a few generic “we hear you” -corporate-bot replies, today, before the regular season, they released an update fixing this specific issue (among others). I have no illusions that this was meant just for me, but it sure *feels* that way, and that is worth a 5-Star review. I will renew my subscription.

    They don’t strive to be the best. Yet they rather continue to check the box. Sad!!! Passionate vs politics.
  • ?!?!

    By Taylorjpete
    Okay I bought the audio only subscription, but the audio only works when I am in the app and my phone is on?? That’s ridiculous! I can’t sit here and drain my battery! Somebody help please
  • Great app!

    What a great app with an awesome “News” section! No complaints
  • Video quality

    By Old music seeker
    When opening a video, the ads load super fast and in full HD, but when it comes to the actual content it takes 10 years to get it to load
  • Terrible

    By RyanLeary14
    This app has been almost flawless the past few years, but there is multiple problems I have right now. 1. Why can’t I listen to the audio of the games in the background of my device? I shouldn’t have to stay on the app for 3 straight hours to listen to the game. 2. Every time I choose to listen to the game, it makes me restore the NBA League pass. This one is more of a pain in the butt and a waste of time. 3. The games on the home screen are almost always delayed heavily (sometimes almost by quarters). This is ridiculous and shouldn’t be happening.
  • Read before buying league pass audio

    By Hate is another form of love
    If I could give this app 0 stars I would. If you get league pass audio. You can not switch apps while listening, the audio will stop. You can not lock your phone, the audio will stop. You can not turn off the auto lock feature because after 8 minutes of just leaving the game playing, the audio will stop automatically. I was excited to be able to listen to the game audio at work and in the car but this app is just bad and does not work. Any other app that plays audio that will continue on the lock screen except this app. Horrible design, half assed program, never been more disappointed in the NBA. Shaq hitting a free throw is more likely than anyone being able to use this app. Please fix this NBA so I can listen with my phone locked.
