  • Still no full screen video support

    By h3rnand3zz
    What's going on guys! Make your videos able to expand fully on the new iPhones! We don't want to see a square box in the center of our phones when watching a game. We bought these phones to fully utilize our screen size. All other apps are already doing this. It's not that difficult. Follow suit with other apps like sling and Netflix and YouTube it's a simple expand gesture when watching a video or pinching to make smaller. It's a shame after all updates this this not something you have worked on.
  • Pretty much a scam

    By hornetVet
    Not to mention why a ridiculously rivalry broken team like GSW is allowed to exist without punishment after they acquire bogie for just 5M. The standard all game subscription is described to have access to classic game, yet they silently remove it. If you pay for it in 18~19 season, the earliest replay you can watch is the pre season of 1819. Next. If you are trying to cast the replay you purchased to your smart tv, apple tv or chrome cast, it will always pops up an error that stops you from doing that. I am 100% certain that it is not a technical bug, since all the free recap videos are casted normally.
  • Disappointed

    By JNW1985
    Would normally watch NBATV with U-verse app with no problem. Was glad to see I could watch on the app but it ruins the experience. Games lag, freeze, and sometimes just flat out crash. Have tried to watch on WiFi and data but just doesn’t work. Wish I could go back to watching NBATV on my cable provided app.
  • Needs to improve....

    By Marylandplayer
    App is generally OK, but needs little tweaks to make the user experience better. Why can’t I minimize the game screen without it freezing/stopping the game from playing?
  • Updated NBA App Review 2018-Does Not Work on iPod 5

    By Tigers
    The MLB and the NHL app works well on the iPod 5. MLB and NHL apps works on most recent older apple devices like the iPod 5 and older apple iPads but the NBA app does not. The MLB and NHL app gives me the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wing Experience when I open their apps. I just told the NBA app I am a Detroit Piston Fan. So the the NBA app should open the app for me into the Detroit Piston experience but it does not. AC
  • Terrible

    By cking soupss
    All I wanted to do was buy one game and watch it, first I spent the $1.99 on the game at and it told me the transaction didn’t go through, and made me do it again, turns out it double charged me anyway. Then after all that it said to watch the game through the nba app, so I log in to the nba app go to my purchases to activate it and it asks me where i purchased the league pass, I click on the option and it makes me re-sign in. The app refreshes and nothing changes, I tried countless times and went into my settings for any information to help but there’s nothing! I’ve been trying to watch the game I BOUGHT for 45 minutes now with no luck. I want a refund! I can’t even enjoy my favorite sport because of this bull. League pass and nba tv are jokes
  • Can't watch game live

    By New to Yahoo
    Have had to download a few times, am doing it as I write this review. When trying to watch a game on this app they ask which package I would like to buy, I already have on but the IPhone app is not recognizing it and is failing to play any games, they just keep asking what package I would like to by. Why would they ask if it is a free period, why would they if they can see I have an active account. Guess it is a way to get more money, any other reasons I am open to. Just want to watch on my IPhone as well, but looks like you need to pay twice to do this.
