Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
What is your TV provider against which you are authenticating? NBC will only play a few items of content before it requires you to authenticate against a TV (cable, satellite, streaming) content provider.
So, if you can provide some additional informaiton, perhaps we can figure this out and get things working like you're wanting.
