So I have ATV 3rd gen and was super excited when NBC Sports Live Extra app was introduced last year. My main use for that app is to watch F1 content.
I noticed though (this seasons for instance) that there is barely any F1 content. For instance - for the China race, there is like 1 or 2 practice sessions - no qualifications, no race available for replay. I cant even comment on live content as none of that is available on that app.

I also have the same app on my Windows 10 system, and all the F1 content is there - I can watch all live F1 and replays. Why there is such disparity in the content between the same app? Does anyone have any experience with NBC Sports Live Extra app on ATV4? Does it provide all the F1 content, or it is also very limited as ATV3 app?

All the F1 content is on the iOS version of the app too, but Airplay does not work correctly to either version of ATV. NBC's F1 coverage via Live Extra is terrible, and exceedingly inconsistent. I see what you see with the differences between the ATV3 and ATV4: no races or qualifying on the ATV4.

The NBCSN app for both the ATV 3 & 4 are absolutely terrible. I never understood why I can watch live NHL games on the iOS app, but can on our ATV's. I have reached out to NBCSN's Twitter account multiple times, and my questions continue to go unanswered.

The disparity between the ATV app and iOS app is absolutely ridiculous.
