MSNBC — Only The Freshet News Review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

MSNBC is a news-delivering application, available for iOS and Android. It mostly specializes in streaming videos and NBC shows, but can also offer a solid array of news broadcasts. Don't miss your favorites like The 11th Hour or Hardball both live or on demand. Download MSNBC to always stay tuned.

Functionality 3.5/5

The application unlocks tons and tons of NBC videos, including the channel's shows you enjoy. Among its titles you will find:

  • The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.
  • The Rachel Maddow Show.
  • The 11th Hour with Brad Williams.
  • Hardball with Chris Matthews.
  • Lockup.
  • MTP Daily.
  • Up with David Gura.
  • Morning Joe.

And many others. Although it should be noted, you'll need to have cable/satellite or a telco subscription to savor those programs.

If you happen to possess Chromecast, Airplay or any other similar system - you're in luck. The signal from the app can be transmitted to the bigger screen, since the app is synchronizable with such stations. Thus you'll save up some money and also turn your phone into a remote control.

The beloved shows and episodes can be added to the Favourite category, so you can access them pronto, especially if the viewing has been disrupted prior to that. All shows provided by the app has "on demand" status, which means you can pause/resume them anytime it's suitable for you.

Our MSNBC review warns you that commercials are quite persistent here. They appear incessantly and at pretty short intervals.

Design 4.5/5

The app's interface received a facelift lately. Black and white laconic design isn't distracting. All the shows have bright thumbnails allowing you to recognize the shows quickly, without even having to read their titles.

Usability 4/5

With its frequent ads and freezes/lags, MSNBC still does a good job at delivering video content and news. You can watch them anywhere, as long as your phone's with you. And if you skip a live broadcast, the on-demand mode will cover your back.

Cross-platform use 4/5

MSNBC application works on iOS and Android devices. It's quite liberal towards Android gadgets, but iOS must be at least 9.0 to вщ the trick. There's no desktop version, but MSNBC has its own website, on which part of the shows, mostly news, can be watched:

In-app purchases

The application is free to download and use. To compensate this generosity, it will deafen нщг with the cannon fire of commercials. So far there's no option to block, skip or buy a protection from them.

The Bottom Line

MSNBC has a rich array of news and also analytical and just entertaining shows. Sometimes its picture abruptly gets motionless, sometimes it loses sound. And ads are vexing in a way. But it's easy to use, thanks to its sleek interface and the channel's programming remains one of the best.
