NBC Nightly News

Reviews For NBC Nightly News

This podcast is running commercials and still not investing back into it! Weekend shows don’t get posted with consistency, Some shows are cut short, and shows during the holidays are posted with very poor frequency. ** hire someone FULL TIME to manage your podcast because the intern who doesn’t work weekends or holidays isn’t getting the job done! **
I have not fed horrible audio over the past couple podcasts, as if the audio feed is being taken from ambient microphones instead of mics close to the host.
The audio really needs work. Example: the podcast from 10/08/2017. The audio is so awful you can’t hear the newscaster at all
I like listening to the news and this cast seems to be the best summary of last night's news. That being said who ever edits this is seriously incompetent. It seems almost every episode has something wrong with it. Some days has random periods of dead air. Other days the episode ends midway. Today the audio for the announcers are tuned to a whisper while the music is cranked to a level that will make your ears bleed. Seriously do they even listen to this before they upload?
I used to enjoy this news podcast. Over the past few weeks the production quality has steadily decreased. Music overlays that are so loud the person speaking cannot he heard. Endless minutes of the opening theme music. Volume dramatically going up and down. I will now be looking for a new news source.
Not sure why, but the audio levels have been messed up recently. The intro music is really loud while the voices are super low.
The last 2 nights, at the beginning of the episode, all you could hear was the music. None of the voices were audible. Please fix the sound! Otherwise, love the full nightly news podcast.
The last two nights of the podcast are impossible to listen. There is only one track of a two track feed. Please fix! Otherwise, love the feed.
Unlike some other network nightly news podcasts, NBC hasn’t included ads for other podcasts. Unfortunately, the past few days, they apparently have someone mixing the sound who has no idea what they are doing. The main vocals are very difficult to hear, the opening music lasts over a minute, what should be the sound from background video is blasting, especially compared with the newscaster’s vocal level. Someone really needs to check the podcast before sending it out, otherwise, I would remove 3 of the 4 stars.
I give this podcast 4 start for quality of production. I give NBC zero stars for quality of content.
I love the news but hate the delay sometimes. Don't understand why I sometime can't get yesterday's 6pm news at 6am est the next day. Why is the turn around so slow. The TK show turns it in 2 hours.
Gave this a try but right away the news that was reported was lousy. Waste of time was my impression. Hope it gets better!
I don't like this podcast. NBC often doesn't update it for days on end. It's 8 May, and the last update was 5 May. Meanwhile major news has occured around the world. Maybe NBC should should change the name to "News When We Can Get Around to It"
I just want unbiased news. This isn't it.
Lester Holt and crew provide great info on what is going on in the world and on the different issues in politics.
Deleted app from phone after Lester Holts unabashed bias for Hilary last night (1st debate). Fire Lester and maybe I will download the app again. #disgusting
Becoming more and more unreliable as 'nightly' news. I like to listen to the news every night before I go to bed. How hard can it be post the audio feed from the nightly news cast. This should be an automated process.
I enjoy the newscast but listen on my schedule but with this broken app and an obvious "don't care" attitude from NBC to keep this podcast working, it's time to move to a different network. I miss the video podcast but now the show hasn't been able to download in a week. Time to move on.
Bring back the video version of this podcast!
I just unsubscribed after hearing a segment about a creationist's ark project described as being built "to god's specifications in the bible." Is that a fact? Think again, NBC. You just lost a viewer/listener. This is not news, it's free publicity.
This would be a five star review if I could count on consistent daily postings. News isn't NEWS if it's delayed.
This is a great podcast! Unfortunately,I've switched to ABC News as NBC isn't able to keep this podcast updated every evening. If you like news a day delayed or even omitted entirely- this is your podcast. ABC World News is my new go-to source.
This is my preferred daily US news program, but updates are inconsistent. Often not posted until the following day or skipped entirely. Occasionally the same one will be posted multiple, consecutive days.
Thanks for the podcast, it is great, but the one of Aprial 16 is imcomplete, it was cut suddently before report of the music classes. I also watched the full video on nbcnews.com, it was the same, incomplete.
I love the show, but TOO MANY TIMES it takes an entire day (or more) to get the show up. And many times last calendar year, it was never available.
First the video podcast is taken away. Then the audio is only hit and miss Its obvious to see that there is no priority to the customer. So why even bother.
No news oct 20? I guess they wanted to show everyone that complained about no video that it could be worse?
Would of been 5 stars but for some reason they took away the video podcast and only have audio now. Please bring back the video please.
Please bring the video podcast back.
NBC doesn't want to give you the news. Try took away the awesome video app when Brilliams went away. Now this pathetic audio podcast posts too late to be considered "news". And forget about streaming from their crap website - choppy and constant reloads. I may turn to Fox Spews! I'm that desperate!
Update: 4/23/15 - Decided to trial one week to see if improvements have been made in last 2 months. Advertisements are a necessity to fund their operation. Give them that, but not: 1) Having to wait for enough download to begin watching. 2) Not having the ability to preload video so it can be watched without internet connection. 3) Many missed episodes, especially on weekends. 4) Stalls (to load up) between “chapters”. 5) No ability to fast forward, rewind 30 sec, nor on screen volume control, time remaining to end (user does math [total time minus elapsed time]). Still a big NO for NBC app. A big step backward without incorporating customer issues. Initial review 2/14/15: OK, this was good, nay great! But now that they have discontinued this podcast in favor of their app, I now will no longer watch NBC Nightly News because: 1 - As of 2/14/15 their podcast doesn’t allow me to D/L for use in areas without i-net. 2 - Their app makes them special(ly annoying) in that they leave iTunes requiring special action to run their app. Consolidation had it’s value, respecting my time and making it simple, one update button to update all iTunes podcasts. GOOD BYE NBC NIGHTLY NEWS!
It's sad at the parent company of NBC, Comcast, has decided to make you pay, for what you used to get for free.
I use to DL the daily video podcast but they recently changed the video over to the NBC app. I don't have access to a WiFi connection at work, where I typically catch up on my nightly news. Please bring back the video version of this podcast! There are so many stories that require an image of what is happening around the country!
until the video podcast is back, i will no longer be subscribing to this. thanks!
Very disappointed the decision was made to stop producing the video podcast.
Lame that NBC is only providing the audio podcast, guess I will soon have to get my news from elsewhere.
I guess I will have to consider ABC or CBS
Won't miss an episode !!
I love this podcast and hate it when there is a break in the posting to iTunes. Today, November 25th is the 5th day since a new episode was posted.
Why hasn't this audio podcast been updated by the video one has?
Only the video version seems to be updated. Will the audio version be returning?
Best news podcast there is, but the podcast has not been updated in two days with what aired on TV. Interns aren't that expensive. Update.


why did you have to add commercials? I have enjoyed not having commercial and getting my news, i don't know if ill continue to listen to this podcast.
yecchh!! enough of the bloody english baby!! bloody hell! and enough of that silly bush, his silly socks, and his new haircut!! i want some real news!!
Cliff's notes on the biggest news stories of the day
My goodness - how long does it take to post the days news? Seems like a number of podcasts have gotten slightly lazy and have failed at making available their podcast on a regular and timely basis - cant believe this would be the case as you would think they are in the business of attracting audiences - especially NBC
The audio editing is amateur, unprofessional. There are many basement podcasters who do a better job at sound leveling and editing.
Daily updates around 7 eastern should be plenty enough time. How can it go days with old news? Someone should be fired. Brian Willams is the best there is.
I find it incredibly annoying that most of the time there's an old episode and not one at all available. It is my favorite news program but the audio podcast is very poorly managed.
