Playback is where you watch live sports with your favorite creators, communities and friends. Experience a better way to watch sports.


Watch parties hosted by your favorite personalities in sports. Join and watch along as they bring their unique perspectives to the game, offering commentary that you can’t find anywhere else.


Chat, vote on polls and hop on stage, all while watching the game in perfect sync. Playback provides an immersive experience where you can cheer, discuss and share the highs and lows of a live game.


With push notifications enabled, you’ll always know when the game starts or when your communities go live.


To access live TV, you’ll first need to log in with your cable or streaming provider. If you don’t have an eligible provider, you can still join the conversation and tune in to the stage. We’re constantly adding new providers to make sure you never miss any action.


In upcoming releases, you’ll be able to become a creator, go live, and fully manage your room from within the app.

What’s New

Version 1.1.4

Watch the stream in full screen by rotating your phone! We made some improvements to smooth out the full screen transition and removed the orientation lock. Just rotate your phone to the right or left while you're in a live room and the stream will take over the entire screen. If you prefer to keep your device orientation locked you can continue using the full screen button in the stream overlay.

This update also fixes an issue causing increased device temperature and battery drain.

NBA nerds will love this!

I am a huge fan of the Nate Duncan and Danny Leroux broadcasts of NBA games. Those guys are the best at their craft. Watching NBA games on Playback is much more enjoyable of an experience than the traditional broadcast. The announcers will reply to questions in the chat during tv commercials, and it forms a cool community of die-hard sports fans looking for more in-depth analysis of the games we watch. I can’t recommend Playback enough!

Great Idea execution needs work

Playback is a great idea for a platform. It allows you to connect with people who have similar sports interests and are able to discuss those sports with them. My main issue with the app is how buggy it is. It constantly glitches. For example it Kicks me out of the app randomly, the audio quality of the people on stage worsens when you Join the stage compared to when you are off. Unable to hear audio from app when on different social media apps such as discord, Instagram, Twitter, etc. The team I talked to is responsive but they don’t seem to have a small team which results in long update times and issues that don’t get resolved in months
