So it would appear that NBC is finally starting to realize that the concept of cable these days does not include any actual cables. To this end, the latest update to their app actually lets us enjoy live streaming (as long as you can log-in with credentials from the subscription you have with your local TV provider… oh, and if NBC happens to also own the local station in your market).
For those not in one of the large markets initially supported (including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Dallas-Fort Worth), there are a few other updates to enjoy: a larger library of old NBC shows (so if you miss Knight Rider as much as you should, your patience has now been rewarded), and added AirPlay support (which is good for those using iOS devices, with no word on a target for Chromecast support).
If you want to watch your favourite TV shows on-the-go, download and install the NBC app now to take advantage of these latest upgrades.
