Almost perfect, except for....

I watch MSNBC every day, sometimes I have it on all day, and the app lets me watch it while I’m away from home.
App works very well EXCEPT that it freezes frequently and usually I can’t get it to unfreeze. Sometimes, after several minutes, it will begin to play again on its own but usually it stays stuck. I then have to go back to the MSNBC Home page, select Live TV and hope it will play correctly. In the meantime I’ll have missed part of the program.
And sometimes, when a live program has frozen, it won’t let me go back to the MSNBC Home page at all and I actually have to turn my device off, then back on, select the MSNBC app... and start all over. This is very annoying and such a pain that I often just quit watching - which is certainly not what I want to do! But when a live program has frozen twice, or more, during a single viewing, it is just too aggravating and frustrating to go through the process of trying to get it to unfreeze and restart. Grrrrrrr!

Great Programming, but what’s up with Spanish commercials?

I watch MSNBC on app practically all day, from Way Too Early to the 11th Hour. But lately most of the commercials are in Spanish. Is bilingual TV programming hip these days?? There are some people who might be highly offended by this, however I am not one of them. To be honest, when I’m ready to buy something I’m going to do all of my homework not just believe what is loaded into my brain in between Morning Joe and Dealine White House. So the fact that I can’t understand them helps me to ignore them even more. I’m sure Verizon and Honda don’t want to hear that. The only English commercials I hear anymore are about cancer, sleep apnea and bowel problems. It would be better if you could just choose what language you want to hear programming in, to be fair all around. Otherwise please make all the commercials in Spanish, Cantonese, or any other language so I don’t have to pay any attention to any of them.

I'm so glad this app exists!

We spend much time in areas we can't get satellite, so we rely on streaming when we are in the RV. App support was very helpful when I couldn't watch live on my iPad, and they made it possible. My only complaint is how long it takes to get episodes up on the app. Since we are on the west coast, Morning Joe is over by the time we get up, so we can't watch live. We can stream on you tube, each hour is available almost as soon as it has finished playing. I'd love if MSNBC would break the program up into hour-long blocks and make all available on the app sooner. I don't know why the whole show isn't available, instead of just a fraction. I always (mostly) enjoy the variety of speakers in the program and you are short changing the viewers by not having the whole show availability. I'd much rather watch the whole thing on MSNBC than some random Chinese channel on you tube.
