NBC has rolled out a significant update to its iOS app that brings live streaming functionality in select markets as well as the ability to watch full episodes of the network's classic shows. To access live streaming content, you're going to need a subscription to a cable or satellite partner in available markets, but you can watch older NBC shows such as The A-Team, Miami Vice, Battlestar Galactica and more for free even if you're not subscribed.

Here's a list of the new features introduced in version 3.0:

  • Live video stream of NBC programming available for cable/satellite subscribers in select markets.
  • Expanded full-episode library of classic NBC shows available, including The A-Team, Miami Vice, Kojak, Battlestar Galactica, The Incredible Hulk, Knight Rider and more!

Live streaming on iOS will be available in only those areas where NBC owns the local station. The content is available to stream via AirPlay should you wish to view the TV shows on another screen. NBC's offering is similar to what ABC has rolled out over a yeah and a half ago.
