Windows Phone is taking off, that much we know. But apps, apps, apps are the name of the game and there is always one that you want. If that missing app is NBC Sport’s LiveExtra, you can cross it off your list.
The app was revealed to be in the works by the NBC Sports LiveExtra Twitter account and the developer behind it confirmed it as well.
The saga all started by one Jay S., who is both an avid Windows Phone and NBC fan. He found the developer’s Twitter stream, which included a photo of various devices “in testing” with an updated version of the app for the upcoming Winter Olympics. It’s hard to miss the bright yellow Lumia and what looks to be various tablets in the photos and the developer confirmed that indeed, it is what it seems like.
The official NBC Sports LiveExtra Twitter account commented in a response to the developer and Jay:
“Windows phone users will have themselves a Live Extra app in time for the @Sochi2014 Games and forever onwards after!... The app will support windows 8 phone and tablet devices running 8.1 and updated as necessary.”
NBC Sports LiveExtra (stream.nbcsports.com/liveextra) is quite popular as it allows you to live-stream all of NBC’s sports broadcasts including NHL, Premier League games and of course, the Olympics.
So there you go, this is no rumor, folks. Now we just have to play the waiting game. Seeing as the Winter Olympics begin on February 7th and run through the 23rd, they still have plenty of time to get it out there.
This NBC app joins the official Sochi Guide app for the Winter Olympics, which was recently released for Windows Phone.
