  • What happened? Doesn’t work?

    By JTTT
    App keeps timing out, telling me I don’t have a connection (when I do), stops before the skit I am watching ends and then jumps to the next skit. It hasn’t worked well for months. MAJOR THUMBS DOWN. PLEASE FIX.
  • Horrible app

    By Pgkozmo
    Constant spinning, crashing, I’ve created a profile for NBC - still does not work. Used to be tolerable, now it’s just constantly times out.
  • Stay away

    By Lizzzztx
    Crashes at startup with latest update on IPhone X.
  • Great app!

    By L'anza Man
    Disregard the reviews that this app is slow and difficult! All the bugs are worked out! Easy to use!
  • What happened?

    By RYPOD80
    Not sure what happened to this app. It used to work pretty well. Now most of the time the videos stop playing halfway or less through and automatically move on to the next video. And every time you switch video orientation the videos freeze or change as well. And it’s not optimized for the iPhone X yet which makes things all the more messy and difficult to use.
  • Why won’t it work!!!

    By JinglesTheElf
    Try using Apple TV with this app. It is horrible.
  • Just Don’t

    By SteveASBFA
    Constant and annoying connection errors. I’m going to stick with YuTube.
  • Works ... uh never

    By Vlskt
    Great idea so fun when you can watch. Have to see ad first )works every time) and then the videos (9 out of 10) just have the never ending g circle and then say there was a problem. GRR
  • Best SNL app so far!

    By Smoov danger
    I don’t usually watch SNL on my phone but when I do it’s usually on the SNL app! Some apps are just flat out missing the mark when it comes to SNL, but this has probably got to be my favorite SNL app!!! 4 stars because it’s not Saturday and definitely not live.
  • The ties that bind us

    By Old School SNL Fan
    CONSTANT connection timeouts via WiFi while other streaming apps have no issues, but I loved having a laugh with old SNL friends so it WAS worth it. After many updates, the app still has connection issues and now wants us to login via Facebook or an email address. At this point I have to say goodbye!
