Crashes every time 1/5
Every time I click on a video to watch it runs for about 2 seconds before the screen goes black. I deleted and reloaded the app, didn't help.
Airplay support is terrible, video is rarely in sync. It resets the login screen every time you leave the app, so you can't use it with a password manager easily. It crashes frequently. They ask for all kinds of user data. They're constantly making you agree to new terms of service. The iPhone login for the Apple TV is usually broken.
Just a scam to add to your already cable bill.
Worst app of all time 1/5
This app should NEVER charge to watch the AFC championship game next week. If CBS has any morality, they would change it to where we can watch it free. FOX does it as well as NBC and ESPN.
Don't buy it until they have some common sense and change it.
Limited or no commercials should be an option for purchase.
One star and that might be too much 1/5
The live TV portion of the app on the iPhone and Roku TV are terrible. When it works, it's great. The problem is that it isn't consistent and usually decides to flake out in the middle of a show. Tech support is equally bad.
Won't let you unsubscribe 1/5
They make is really easy to sign-up and put you on a monthly auto repay program, but impossible to cancel. This is basically spamware.
Ghost Whisperer is advertised as being on this service but it is not!! Bait and switch. How about old CBS shows like MASH, Raymond, Two and a Half Men???! Not on this service! For ten bucks, Hulu and Netflix are better deals.
App keeps crashing 1/5
Horrible app, always crashes
Terrible Business Strategy 1/5
Having a paywall for a network TV app is a terrible business strategy fueled by greed. Instead of charging users who already pay for cable to use this app, they could offer access at no additional charge, which would result in more people watching their programs, which then leads to higher ad spots = more revenue. Get with the times CBS!
Wouldn't recommend 1/5
By Oshea ray
Like most apps, has in-app purchases and a complete hassel to unsubscribe.
Sub par app for such a major network 1/5
Big disappointment...maybe in a few months and a few updates, it will be a better app. At this point, it's designed for the user to pay since there are only 2 cable networks that you can login to with your acct password and uverse or even spectrum isn't one of them.
I would give it zero stars if I could 1/5
CBS sent me an email claiming I could watch an NFL playoff game through its app. Great, I wasn't going to be home to watch. So I downloaded the app and agreed to the one week trial...then I couldn't even watch the game, as I was greeted with a notification that I needed Verizon and NFL Mobile. Fine. I'll just unsubscribe as they explain. Settings, subscription...except, my only option there is to UPGRADE for $11.99/month.
I sent them feedback twice asking to be unsubscribed and they still did not and I was still charged the $6.99..plus tax so $7.48. Horrible app!
Why! What do you have to offer that is better than the other networks? Get with the rest!
False Advertising- No NFL 1/5
Don't fall for this scam. CBS sends out press releases saying if you purchase their app you can stream the games. Not only is it a lie, it is textbook fraud. Stay away from this app.
Tells you AFTER you've signed up and given your credit card info that they don't actually allow streaming of nfl games, despite nfl.com shuffling you to the cbs site, which has the nfl crest all over it. Blatant bait and switch that is unbelievable for a modern corporation.
TV that Disappoints but Online 1/5
By Benji Ming
Was ready to spend the extra on CBS all access and then they completely failed me. You can tell they have executives making decisions that are out of touch with customers who would actually consider paying for access like this.
All the same annoying commercials with both on-demand shows + live. Might as well get Hulu, Netflix, or keep basic cable.
NFL experience was bad too. Shifty video and inconsistent across your displays. I would watch it via Apple TV for a minute and then it stops saying "not available on a mobile device." Really lame. Too much like the cable experience on the internet. I will probably take the discounted cable package. This BS is not worth it.
Thank you for the one week to try it. I needed one day to hate it.
The worst , period 1/5
By CBS really
CBS should be ashamed . Can't even keep at par with other major channels. Why would I pay for these shows or a single football game. Fail
Can't activate directv subscription 1/5
No option to activate DirectTV subscription. Awful.
FAIL "NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR AREA" 1/5
By Doin' Bidness
So, I still pay the same price but with limited features? Once again you have failed CBS. Cancelled subscription and deleted immediately. Pathetic.
Needs more cable providers! 1/5
I pay for cable. ESPN, NBC, Fox, and others allow me to sign in using my cable provider information to watch live. CBS app has two providers to choose from, none are mine. They are behind the curve on this one.
I have CBS through my cable provider 1/5
The CBS and CBS Sports App are absurd. I used to be able to watch live tv through them after I signed into through my cable provider now with all access I can't do that, I'd have to pay $6.99 a month. And when I did the trial it said live tv is not available in my area. Well like two weeks ago it was. The Fox and NBC sports apps work perfectly so I'll just use those and know to never use CBS again unless they go back to a reasonable business model for all consumers.
Worst of all network apps!!! 1/5
I'll try and watch my language but this app is by far the worst app of ALL network apps. It's constantly freezing, jumping back to the menu and getting very blocky. I am watching a football game and it's terrible. Let's not even take into account that I had to pay $6.00 to watch the game. I just watched a game on Fox Sports Go and it was free and flawless. Last week I watched a game on NBC and it too was free and flawless. I will be cancelling this all access pass after the game and NEVER watch this garbage app again. SO LONG CBS you piece of....
CBS NFL Scam 1/5
By CBS NFL Scam
I've never written a review before online in my life. But I felt compelled because this was just such a scam. I just moved so I don't have internet or cable and am too tired to go to a bar. I see the add on NFL.com saying I can stream Pats-Texans by signing up for CBS All-Access.. so I did and long story short - you cannot. It's blacked out. And in the FAQ it says that people often ask if they have rights to NFL games - they don't. Despite NFL.com advertising it does. Just craziness.
Absolute Garbage 1/5
By Grizzly Stik
^^ Says it all.
Wow Greedy M'effers!! 1/5
Now you want us to pay to watch live tv, while most other channel apps are free? I already pay over $200 for cable! Looks like I will delete this app and encourage all my friends and followers as well...
This app is a joke. Point blank. #1. They're the only major network that can't verify your cable provider. #2 they try to get to pay for their useless content. Again the only network that goes for this. #3 they advertise that you can stream playoff games. So I go through the whole process of signing up etc. finally login and attempt to watch the game. Guess what "this content is not available to stream. Even though I literally only signed up because it said "stream the NFL playoff live". #4 I then attempt to download the app on my xboxone. Do that. Go to verify my account online. Same as ever other app. Never have had problems. But guess what CBS doesn't work. VASTLY INFERIOR PRODUCT. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. DEF NOT $$$.
Two service providers!!! That's it????? 1/5
If you have Verizon don't bother with this app. Unless of course you want to pay extra for what other channels give you for free.
Can't watch football on iPhone 1/5
By Universal Language
The only reason I signed up for all access was to watch football. I can watch on my laptop but not on my iPhone for "reasons" and that's frustrating as a paying consumer.
By Jojo Tranquilo
The app is horrible. Reminds me of spirit airlines. Basically a honey trap to make you subscribe for $6.99/month and won't even let you sign in with your directv/Verizon/att account like most broadcast/cable channels.
Glitches Galore 1/5
Let me add my 1 star to the rest of the 1 star reviews. Congratulations CBS All Access team, I can get no access to a service I'm willing to pay for. Goes into a constant loop when I try to watch through my Xbox. It won't refresh the screen when I enter the code. Absolutely terrible. NBC works great. Fox works great. CBS - FAIL!!!!!
By Trash app = CBS
Application only works with two cable providers to allow for streaming, not acceptable for 2017, CBS.
CBS is trying to force users to pay not only the cable companies they contract packages with, but then want to offer live TV for additional costs. If I pad for the CBS application, it would be more expensive than HBO.....that is a bunch of hot garbage, CBS.
Steaming pile of crap 1/5
If it were possible to leave negative one star i would. This app will not chromecast to your tv no matter what- just leaves you hanging at a blue screen staring at a cbs logo. Half the time it will not allow you to the program that is currently showing (AFC Playoffs- hello?)
Complete waste of time. Your app is bad and you should feel bad.
Pay up or leave. 1/5
Wow, I didn't even get the option to sign in with any provider. It was a straight pay up or leave app. I left.
What a joke 1/5
Every other major network allows me to sign in with my provider (Verizon). CBS, through greed or stupidity, will make you pay again to watch their commercials. The app seemed fine, but it's useless unless you want to pay for access (again).
More money!!!! 1/5
If you already have cable and want to watch from you labtop, they want more money!!! CBS is just as bad as NBC and there Olympic coverage. CBS "give me more money so you can watch more commercials" They should let you give a 0 star rating!!
This app is a zero/5 star 1/5
Literally the worst app I've ever used. Don't waste your money on CBS all access.its a total rip off and doesn't function correctly on this app anyway.
The only network left.... 1/5
I agree with everyone else here. It's an absolute travesty that they charge to watch live tv instead of just signing in withy or provider. I just want to watch the playoff at my in laws but alas I guess I am SOL! Just terrible CBS. Please fix this and add providers like every other app in the world.
Total bait n switch 1/5
Tried to sign up for free week trial for NFL playoffs. Not only do u have to pay via “upgrade” in the iTunes store, the AppleTV app doesn’t know you’ve upgraded, and all it will provide u with is a grey screen saying please upgrade. Bait, switch, take money, disappear. Totally useless. Further, the app itself appears to be a train wreck- no search function, no way to scan through series, watch sports etc. CBS is operating like there are still 3 tv networks. Bye!
Why pay twice CBS? 1/5
Thought I would be able to stream the NFL games but they don't have live tv for ATT customers! It's one of the largest cable providers nationwide. Why would I buy CBS AllAccess when I have ATT cable? Every other network allows me to stream live.
Because of this i will write negative reviews for CBS on just about anything they do. I will cancel my FFL league through their website and more or less boycott them until they make this change...
CBS, you know better than to screw your customers!!
Greedy business strategy plus crashes 2/5
too expensive to pay CBS $72 per year to watch their shows WITH commercials on the app while I also pay my SAT company to get access to CBS.
Plus the APP routinely crashes
Like I'm going to pay 6 dollars a month to watch CBS WITH commercials! I'll wait til whatever series airs on Netflix, and if it doesn't, oh well...
Frozen and can't delete 1/5
By CaptainA Fire
This app is worst then badly worst
Horrendous business strategy 1/5
By Bobby Abreu
CBS is the only TV network that has a corresponding app I know of where you have to pay an additional subscription to what you're already paying for through your Cable package. This makes absolutely no sense. ABC, NBC, FOX, and even premium channels like Showtime and HBO all have apps where if you pay for the channel through cable, you can sign in without having to pay an additional fee. Please allow cable subscribers to use the app, since you're literally the only major network to not do that. Do you think the upcoming Star Trek audience will have a significant audience when you're cutting out such a major portion of the potential audience by not including cable subscribers?
I hate this app because I cannot figure out how to cancel.
Good app 4/5
Recently cut the cable cord and didn't realize how many CBS shows I watch, so I'm okay paying for the app. I upgraded my internet speed and have no problems with the app freezing. NOT GIVING A FIVE STAR because this app does not show me when there is a new episode or when I'm all caught up with a series, so I have to go into each show and discover if a new episode aired that week.
Bad app 1/5
Hell, the all wouldn't even open for me. All I got was the cbs icon. Nice app 🙄
Support this app and be patient.. Goodbye cable! 5/5
Thank you CBS and iTunes for making this available!! As time goes on more and more content will be available.
I hope to see other networks available through the iTunes Store
Other networks stream better 1/5
I wanted to like this app but after several tries it just doesn't work well. Streaming is choppy at times and I have had the app freeze on several occasions. Other network apps like abc or even Amazon stream great but not this one.
Well I would like to say that I like the App but, when you go to live TV the program freezes and stays that way. Yes I have all access but no longer have the original device. I upgraded my device. I don't care about commercials and if that is the only reason that you will charge me more for my All Access then you might as well forget about it. The only reason I subscribedto All Access was I wanted to see the program the next day instead of waiting a week. All of my other Entertainment Apps I can do that. The problem needs to be fixed.
Warning! Do Not Download THis App 1/5
This app practices the classic bait and switch. Their all acess subscribtion is a scam. You can't watch what you want and when you try to unsubscribe they make it very difficult. THen even after you do unsubscribe they still charge you. They should be banned from the app store.
