Accessibility Comments

The app appears quite accessible. All buttons appear to be labeled clearly enough to figure out what they do. Most page elements are read by VoiceOver with a few minor and insignificant exceptions such as ads for shows. As usual, when an episode is airing, you may have to double-tap somewhere on the screen to get the video controls to show up.

I just downloaded this app and only had it for a few minutes. Some of it I was able to figure out but, it's not as accessible in my opinion. I went searching for Knight Rider and I found it but, couldn't add it to favorites. I can air play a show but, as soon as you do that, you can't control the app at all. My IPod loses focus on it. I did contact NBC just a few minutes ago and explained the situation. Unfortunately, I doubt I will hear from them since they get tons of e-mails.

Is it possible to pause, rewind, and fast forward the program? I couldn’t get two finger double tap to pause. I remember reading somewhere about “the usual double tap somewhere on the screen to show video controls”. I double tapped and I got information about the program, I think maybe other episodes, but I found no video controls. Does “somewhere on the screen“ mean anywhere on the screen, or at some particular point on the screen? I have the same question about other apps such as Science Channel GO.
App versiown 7.1.0, iOS 12.4.
