The network has extended its live streaming service to mobile gear.
Expanding upon its previously available live internet feed for computers, NBC has added a live streaming option to its iOS and Android apps. The live mobile feature is now available for customers with a supported cable or satellite company.
In addition to having an authenticated pay-TV provider login, users will also need to be in select markets where NBC owns their local stations in order to watch live mobile streams. The updated apps also offer full on-demand episodes for current NBC shows like 'The Voice,' 'The Blacklist,' 'State of Affairs,' 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' 'Days of our Lives' and more. Likewise, classic full episodes from retro shows like 'The A-Team,' 'Miami Vice,' 'Kojak,' 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'The Incredible Hulk,' 'Knight Rider' and more are available as well. Finally, the apps also include clips and previews for 'The Tonight Show,' 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' and 'Saturday Night Live!'
NBC's live mobile streaming platform now joins a growing number of supplemental and stand-alone online TV watching services. Customers in a supported market with an authenticated provider can watch live programming through the iOS and Android apps on their smartphones and tablets now, or head to NBC.com/live to enjoy streaming content on their computers.
