RokuGuide Quick Look: NBC News doesn't offer a live stream of their newscast, or complete episodes of any shows, but it does provide 12 categories of news clips and segments from popular shows:
- Top News
- U.S. News
- World News
- Nightly News with Brian Williams
- News Nuggets from TODAY
- Meet the Press
- MSNBC Cable Highlights
- TODAY Show
- Wierd News
Each category consists of up 40 videos that are from just a few seconds to several minutes in length. The videos are clips from other news shows, not recorded as standalone videos. The channel plays all videos in sequence of any given category until stopped. This is a nice addition that allows you to catch up on all of the videos without having to constantly select the next on in the series.
The NBC News channel is commercial-supported. Not every video displays an opening commercial, but there does not seem to be a set number of videos you can watch between commercials. Commercial length is 30 to 60 seconds and vary in content so you are not bombarded by the same commercial.
