Wishing I could go back to the Lake Placid JGP
Just wondering... for those who have subscribed, how has your viewing experience been so far?
I've stayed logged in for a couple of weeks, and they email me alerts before the live stream starts. The events page is pretty bare bones and easy to navigate. There are only a few tabs - Live Events, Replays, Highlights. There's a clear drop down menu that let's you choose to only see the figure skating options. Most of the text is black on white. If you go to the NBC Gold homepage you can see the colors and layout for yourself.How accessible do you think it is? Are the fields for entering username and password bolded or grey on white? Does it allow you to save log in info easily or remain logged in? Are tabs easy to find or are there a lot of drop downs to navigate? Are titles bolded and easy to spot? Are replays easy to find in terms of all of the above?
I have an LG smart TV and when I looked at the requirements on NBCsports troubleshooting guide it said it would work on a Samsung smart tv. So I'm assuming my LG won't support NBCsports. I've spent over an hour trying to get the stream on my LG. I'll chrome cast to the tv with my laptop. Better than nothing, but very choppy stream at times.I've had no problem watching NBCSportsGold on my computer, but I can't get it to work on my smart TV.
I emailed NBCSportsGold last night and heard from them tonight:

Thanks for reaching out to us.
The NBC Sports Gold is not available on Smart TVs.
The NBC Sports Gold Pass is available on the following devices:
Apple iOS, Android, Apple TV (Gen 4), Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast and online at NBCSportsGold.com.
In order to watch on your TV you would need to use a connected device such as Apple TV or Roku.
Sorry for any confusion.
Yeah, same thing happened to me. I haven't managed to get in yet....sigh.Once I got it running, it was fine. But I took me several tries to login - it didn’t recognize my email - and then when I tried to open the video, asked me to log in multiple times, saying that I didn’t have a subscription though I do.
I will try that tonight. On my iPad when I tried to sign on with nbcsports.com it would let me sign in to the Gold section but When I would touch the little skate icon to go to the skating section, the page came up to buy the pass though I’m already signed in. It was only when I used the app that I could gain access.
