A Tale of 2 Experiences - Both Frustrating

I’m an ex pat in Europe and a rabid BB fan. So I was excited to find this app so I can watch my Lakers. The playoffs have been frustrating because of the inconsistency in the way the show the games in replay. The Boston/ Heat series is frustrating because the sound is off so the announcer is talking about plays 5 seconds after the play happens. But I like how they edit out the commercials and just so the game. The Laker/Nugget experience is even more frustrating because during the breaks the show NBA content that I could care less about and then when they come back to to the game they show they player sitting around the bench for 30 seconds before they get to the telecast. So the experience is actually longer than watching the national telecast. I can’t believe I’m paying for the privilege of a longer experience! Who decides which way to replay the game and why? You are probably saying just fast forward. And then I’d say you’d need the thumbs of a 2 year old to navigate the UI with any accuracy. If they could just combine the two experiences where it had clean edits between the breakers and the sounds synced it would be perfect.

Love the idea but it’s not delivering for me.

Start of this nba season I was really excited to see how it would unfold because of all the offseason activity that took place. I had bought the nba season pass in the past using my local cable provider and loved being able to watch any game, but due to 1) work obligations and 2) living on the west coast (PST) I couldn’t watch many of the games and the pass held no value for me.

I have used the app to watch games as I am out and about and really love how it works— even with the slight delay in timing. What I have found horrible (and some what of a turnoff) has been when I try to cast it to my Visio Smart TV. Each time I do this, it starts out fine and then about 1 min into the casting it cuts off and goes to a blue screen that says “Sorry, Something went Wrong”. Doesn’t tell me how to fix it or who I should call to attempt to identify what the problem is. Just cuts off. This happens repeatedly without fail each time I cast and re-cast the game. If the team could help me fix that, I’d move my rating up a star. Also, my app doesn’t show me any stats or scores. If that can be resolved my, I’d move it one more star.

Adequate

It's not bad, but the delay that the video feeds operate on frequently creates an obvious difference between the score during "live" action and the score visible on the app. There's no (obvious) in-app option to switch video feeds, and the video quality varies wildly even when you have tons of available bandwidth on your network, with long periods of lower-quality video and occasional freezes. Instead of pouring millions into VR add-ons, the NBA should be shoring up base functionality - you'd think they were hard up for cash instead of sitting on billions of dollars.

The one thing that seems worthwhile is the package that allows you to watch commercial-free games (of course you'd think that's what you pay $200 for, but no; they'll continue to show ads if they think you'll pay for them). It is a bit weird to see courtside activity during a road game, since obviously it's the home team's feed that provides that action, but it's far superior to the garbage commercials you'd see instead.
