NBCUniversal starts new season with mobile streaming app in spot by TBWA\Chiat\Day New York

NBCUniversal embraces cord-cutters with a new campaign by TBWA\Chiat\Day New York starring the network's new app for mobile streaming.

The network launched a streaming service for computers in late 2014 with programming available from broadcast network NBC and cable properties under the NBCUniversal umbrella.

The new service now accommodates mobile devices with an integrated app. All three spots highlight mobile device usage, showing the benefits of TV without the cord.

Each spot sets up a humorous situation, then the app saves the day by providing a portable screen to avoid the annoying scene.

Unlike CBS' and HBO’s streaming options, NBCUniversal's offering requires no subscription fee. The viewer only needs to provide proof of pay-TV service such as a cable TV subscription.
