Updated NBC Sports Live Extra App for Android Devices Now Available

UPDATED: NBC Sports Group has launhed a new update for its Android version of the NBC Sports Live Extra app today in the Google Play store. It was released at 5am ET today, Saturday, August 24.

Many soccer fans who own Android devices encountered issues with getting the NBC Sports Live Extra app to stream live Premier League matches during the opening weekend of the 2013/14 season.

The updated version of the app will resolve the issues with games freezing and the app crashing said Rick Cordella, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Digital for NBC Sports Group, in an interview with World Soccer Talk.

Cordella mentioned that one of the challenges with Android devices is getting an app to work on the multitude of different Android devices that are on the market. As a result, NBC Sports has focused on ensuring that the app works seamlessly on all of the most popular Android phones as well as many of the other devices that run Android.

Meanwhile, an updated version of NBC Sports Live Extra for iOS devices will be released in the next few weeks, which will provide an even better experience. The new iOS update will ensure that when the live streaming immediately begins that there is no blurry effect for the first couple of seconds of the broadcast (where the app currently checks your connectivity and adjusts the stream based on your bandwidth).

The updated NBC Sports Live Extra app for Android devices is now live.
