NBC Offers 3 Voting Methods to ‘America’s Got Talent’ Viewers This Season
This season, NBC offered viewers voting at home three different ways to vote for their favorites and make their preferences known to help determine who continues in the competition and who gets sent home. For the finals, all three voting methods will be available.
The first method of voting is via The AGT Official App. To vote using the app, you must download the app to your smartphone device and sign up for a free NBCUniversal Profile using a valid email address. NBC explains, “You may vote via the App up to ten times per act per email address, regardless of sign in method used, during each Overnight Voting Window.” Attempts to vote more than 10 times per act, per email address, will not be counted. Download The AGT Official App here.
The second voting option is to vote online using NBC.com. Again, this method of voting requires an active NBCUniversal Profile created using a valid email address. Since the same email address and account are being used for the app and for online voting, note that you can vote up to 10 times per email address. So, if you have already voted 10 times for an act using your NBCUniversal Profile on the app, you will not be able to vote 10 more times on NBC.com.
The third voting option is exclusive to those who have the XFinity X1 Set-Top Box, an XFinity Voice Remote, and an active XFinity subscription that includes NBC. Via this method, you can vote for each act up to 10 times using your device. It is important to note that for XFinity X1 Set-Top Box Voting, the voting window is only open for 3 hours – when the Tuesday night show airs live for the Eastern and Central time zones until one hour after it ends. To find out when you can vote via XFinity voting, click here.
New episodes of America’s Got Talent season 15 air live on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
