App Reviews

  • Before Update It Was Pretty Good But Now

    By Onofrijo
    With the latest update the app requires that you establish a user profile/account with NBC. I refuse to do that. I just want to be able to view clips from Saturday Night Live like I used to but now I can’t. Displeased with SNL’s big brother approach to sharing its content. Will likely be deleting the app now since it’s unusable to me in its current state. Update: I appreciate you’re reading and responding to my initial review; however, you’re still missing the point entirely. I never asked for and do not want your suggested viewings. I have been a fan of SNL since I was old enough to watch it. As a teen I attended several live performances at 30 Rock. In fact, before I could drive a car (and well before internet existed) I used to take a train to NYC from CT to watch archived tapes of episodes in their entirety. As I stated previously, the last iteration was better and usable. The current one requires information that I don’t want to give and for reasons that I don’t agree with so I’m no longer willing to use it.
  • Very buggy lately

    By Pkyigdrhvx1
    All of my favorites disappeared from my account and for a while it was asking me to log back in every single time I opened the app. In addition, the videos played are typically very grainy even when I have good internet speed. The other problem I have is when you start the app the phone has to be vertical but when watching a video I change to horizontal which will typically cause a) the app to shut down, b) the video to freeze but audio to continue, or c) the video and audio to both freeze. The ads also cause the the app to shut down regularly because the videos won’t start back up after the ads. I really used to like this app but it has gone downhill fast.
  • Do not download

    By SNL 4ever
    SERIOUSLY!!!!!! The worst app in the world. Unless you want to see a "timeout connection" screen and ratchell dratchs face every 1-2 seconds, this app will work for you. For us true fans of SNL, what's yalls problem???? I mean, all that $$ and not even one tech person to address a problem that every app subscriber is experiencing???? Way to drop the ball SNL. Or maybe y'all are trying to get us viewers to pay for updates or something??? Thanks for the free app (crap). I'm not as much of a fan of SNL, as a was before this app. But in all reality, what do they care? I mean, they are the ones who put Leslie jones in front of our faces and could care less that she is not funny, rude, in your face, obnoxious, untalented, and yes, the other word too.
  • Great App that needs improvements

    By Shawdybadclapas
    This app was so clearly well thought out that it pains me to see the ball dropped in a couple critical places. 1. There are lots of bugs and crashes that are not just irritating, they actually prevent me from being able to use the app. Often times I have to restart the app and rewatch the starting animation (that was really cool the first 3 times and then got annoying). On top of that, the sketch I was watching was lost and I have to re find it again. 2. No ability to watch a sketch and browse for the next one. This app should really consider creating an interface similar to YouTube's where viewers can minimize the video they are currently watching and search for another sketch. Also, adding an add to queue feature would be awesome! 3. Need to implement some sort of real crash reporting feature (if it's not already automatic under the hood) to squash these bugs asap!
  • Please fix it

    By acbucci
    This app has a lot to offer but it NEVER WORKS. I have to disconnect from the WiFi and use my cellular data to search for videos because whenever I type anything into the search bar it always says there are no results even when it’s something I’ve searched before. On top of that, I have connection error messages pop up every 5 seconds even when a video is successfully playing and it’s honestly infuriating. Is there anyone working on updates for this app? These problems have been present for years and they never seem to get fixed.
  • Used to be a great app. Not anymore

    By 31456Uhhh
    Somewhere along the way, SNL decided that getting into the data collection business rather than the entertainment business was the way to go. The most recent version of the app won’t work unless you (a) provide a ridiculous amount of information to NBC they really don’t need to sell ads; or (b) sign in with the data disaster that is Facebook. Sorry, fail. Delete. I love SNL, but this is not OK. So I’ll occasionally see an episode on TV (grandpa Simpson in his rocking chair). Digital age? Privacy and user experiences fail fail fail. So the developer asked if I’d re-review after they responded. Um, no. NBC doesn’t “need” a ridiculous amount of data to provide me with content I want to see. Pretending it does is BS in the extreme. This just in: I can search an app for great content if it has it. No, the point of all this is to create an elaborate, privacy-invading profile to micro-target stuff as an advertiser. Nothing more, nothing less. Fail, NBC. Love the show. The app? Delete.
  • As good as the show was, the app is bad 😞

    By 44>45
    Sadly the clips don’t load promptly if at all. Whatever enjoyment of watching is replaced by frustration when you find a memory you wish to relive and it does not deliver. Having to sign in is ridiculous, the app actually functioned better before this requirement. What is most insulting is when the developers respond to your complaint they just paste a canned response about how they are doing this to make it better for you. B.S. punks can’t you come up with an original reply? And let us opt out of the sign in as if we don’t know what is best for ourselves. It’s a shame that this I.T. Department is filled with Geek Squad rejects 😵
  • Great when it works

    By TheGreatMarrs
    The app is great for finding the episodes and skits from past seasons but doesn’t hold up for long once play begins. It hangs up, especially in an effort to show advertisements that won’t play but can’t be skipped. If you are air playing it from your phone to Apple TV it only gets buggier. I would love to give it a higher rating just because it’s SNL, which is great, but the app just stinks. At least it’s free...
  • A great app ruined

    By Keybanker
    how do you ruin a great app? First, start making people register to have an NBC account that you don’t want. Then, make it impossible to advance from skit to skit. Add to the mix the replacement of a few quick ads with an awful succession of long commercials — as long as if you were watching the show live. And, top it all off by making navigation of the site indecipherable, including making people look at menus for every NBC show except SNL. Clearly, the intent is to merge the SNL app with the general NBC app, and soon to put it all behind a pay wall. Bye, bye SNL app, and bye, bye NBC. It was great for a long time, but now it was just nice knowing you.
  • Can’t watch every sketch

    By Maulable
    Search for a character, for example Dieter from Sprockets, and only one clip will appear because it’s the only clip available on the app. However, Dieter appeared on SNL 14 times. This app is a waste of time, just like NBC’s website, which is limited to the same content. Worse is that NBC says you can watch every episode of SNL, and over 40 seasons are available. Yet full episodes only go back to season 37, and the rest are clips of whatever NBC actually felt like uploading (almost nothing). I am disappointed in the misleading language of NBC’s website, and even more disappointed with the limited content of this app.
