What is a TV service provider?
A TV service provider is the company you pay for your television service, such as a cable company, a satellite company or a telecommunications company. If you don't see your TV service provider listed now, check back with us soon. We are actively working to add more providers in the near future. Note that you can still watch full episodes to many of your favorite shows without signing in.
Why am I being asked to sign in?
TV service providers play a key role in delivering our content through emerging technology platforms, like the Web and mobile devices. It's through the support of pay TV service providers that we're able to bring live as well as on-demand entertainment and news shows to subscribers at no additional cost.
Do I have to create a new account?
If you already have a user name and password from your TV service provider, you do not need to create a new account - just verify your account information. If you have not previously set up an account with your provider, you'll need to create a new account. Please contact your TV service provider to learn more. If you're not currently a customer with a TV service provider, you'll need to become one to access the full range of NBC programming.
How do I verify my TV service provider account?
Select your TV service provider from the list. When asked, enter your account user name and password; it's most likely the same information you use log on to your account to pay your bill online. Don't forget to check "Remember Me" to avoid having to sign in each time you come back.
What if I've forgotten my user name or password?
Most TV service providers offer a simple way to retrieve or reset your password online. Please contact your provider to learn more.
