Easily and consistently the WORST streaming app I’ve ever used. Doesn’t work for more than half of any episode on any of my devices. Frequently crashes my chromecast and forces it to reboot. A waste of money. Pirating is a better choice all around.
No 4K/ HDR for Star Trek Discovery, Live TV FAIL! 1/5
No 4K/ HDR for Star Trek Discovery! FAIL.
Says live TV is available in my areas, and I login/pw, and nothing happens. Complete FAIL.
Most everything, even current within the last couple months requires payment. 💩
Charged before trial offer was up 1/5
By Gym 5065
I had a month long trial and the company changed before the trial offer expired.
DON’T USE THIS APP!!! 1/5
AFTER ALL THE MONEY I PAY FOR A CABLE SERVICE INTHE FIRST PLACENOW CBS WANTS TO CHARGE ME FOR USAGE OF AN APP FOR A CHANNEL THAT IS FREE ON MY TV!!!! That’s fine, I don’t watch many CBS Show ANYWAY!!! The FEW I do watch, I’ll just record. REMEMBER DVR CBS...I will record rather than PURCHASE ur broke down app!!!
Carefully read terms. 1/5
Wanted to sign up for $5.99 service using somewhat real info. By agreeing to their terms, you agree to be spammed by anyone they sell your information to. Backed out until I can create yet another e-mail address for all their spam. You would think they make enough from the advertisements without selling your information.
Garbage doesn’t work 1/5
Paid the trial and still doesn’t let me watch anything horrible waste of money
Live Stream Seldom Works 1/5
I subscribed to CBS All Access and it seldom works for live stream. It doesn’t work on my AppleTV, or any devices. I’ve spoken with customer service with no resolution. Up to date app, operating software; all of it. Canceling my subscription for a second time as I had the app a year ago and experienced the same problems. I thought the developers would have worked this out by now. For as big a brand as CBS is, one would think this would work much better. If it were free I couldn’t complain, but the fact they charge money and fail to deliver the service they are selling is frustrating.
I’d suggest not wasting your money on this app.
It’s the first station I tune into everyday
Great reporting and I love Jane parley Sunday morning
CBS is great 5/5
By Roses eco app review
Love cbs, all shows have content & shows all ages can watch
Nice and Entertaining 4/5
It is a great app as long as you go “commercial free.” Unfortunately it does cost some but fairly reasonable. One would ask, though, why pay for something you can get for freely broadcasted?
All in all though, it is as nice app.
Mi history page is stuck a month back so I can’t keep track of what episode I was on when I watched it
Okay but with technical problems 3/5
Stream is really jumpy, skipping and freezing frames several times a minute (other streaming services are working fine). App doesn’t remember where you left off in an episode. I have to turn on captions every episode and caption timing becomes delayed frequently.
Apple TV app requires Apple TV restart 1/5
2/17/2018 TV App still broken 😡 have to reboot to watch a show, would you fix it already or should I cancel my subscription?
*Every* time I go to use the app, I need to reboot my Apple TV to get it to play! Seriously, that is total BS, please fix it, it has been broken for months. After the last episode of ST Discovery, I will probably cancel my subscription. Not worth the hassle... 😡👎👎
So Happy with CBS 5/5
This app is a blessing, I have a 15 year old and my self and just love they programs! Absolutely CBS is the BEST!
Makes it easy to watch my favorite shows! 5/5
Makes it easy to watch my favorite shows!
Doesn't work on IPad or iPhone 1/5
The app I am paying for doesn't work on my iPad and iPhone. It wouldn't start at all. Even though I constantly update both app and system. I contacted app support multiple times with no response.
Don’t buy a subscription 1/5
Terrible app! I paid 9.99 for the no commercial plan and as I watch it, it buffers and starts again the 30 seconds later it does it again. No it’s not my internet, I have the fastest internet and pay a pretty penny for it too. Netflix and other companies do not buffer on me. I just canceled my subscription. Oh and I emailed them and they never responded to me.
No Xfinity 1/5
Doesn't support any real providers even though cable subscribers have to pay an additional broadcast fee.
Pure Ripoff 1/5
I’m already paying my cable company a fortune for the privilege of receiving tv content. Why would you charge me and why would I pay CBS for the tv shows that I already paid to see? Cable subscribers should have this included in their subscription price.
Worse app experience ever 1/5
I’m usually not one to complain about things. But this app is completely useless. I have tried multiple times with multiple different devices to get my content that I want to watch that I paid for to work and none of the work except for my Apple TV. I can’t even take them on the go. I can’t do anything with them. I’ve talk to support they don’t understand why I can’t watch my shows on my other devices it’s poorly made and never should be subscribe to. Do yourself a favor and save yourself some money don’t get this app!
How horrible that you want to charge your viewers to catch up on a show. Shame on you. I imagine your ratings are much lower and you sure lost me and my family.
AppleTV App MAJOR BUG 1/5
I wish there was mechanism to submit a complaint to Apple. This app is garbage on AppleTV. If you’re watching an episode of any show and decide to change to another, or pick up on where you left off, you need to completely restart the application. Apple needs to enforce better quality control on their product that costs 3x that of their competitors.
Black screen 1/5
Get a black screen with sound only when trying to watch the amazing race.
Well, at least the commercials run smoothly... 1/5
The app skips, sound goes out, delays, etc. At least the Commercials run smoothly. Oh, that’s right...this PAID app still runs commercials. And if your show fails in the middle, which happens often, you get to start over again, and try to find where the show left off, while you get to enjoy those same commercials over and over again. I only got this app for Star Trek Discovery, and you can be sure that I will delete this app as soon as I’m done. GOOD RIDDANCE!
Always crashing 2/5
It's not a bad app when it works but it does not work well on PS4, it is constantly crashing and saying I'm not connected to the internet when I am, have to restart the app multiple times. I get so frustrated that I end up switching over to Netflix or Hulu. On top of that I pay for no commercials and I still have CBS commercials! After Big Brother Celebrity I will be canceling my subscription
CBS please check out other network apps. Once you sign in to verify that you are a satellite subscriber - your shows should be free to view. WE ALREADY PAY TO VIEW YOUR CHANNEL. But you’re greedy & think $180 a month isn’t enough & want to charge more for viewing your shows on the app, huh? No. Not only will I delete your app, I’ll delete all your tired shows off my DVR. Quit driving the overdone Big Bang Theory into the ground, come up with a fresh show to make some honest money off of. Not your viewers. Bad move.
it’s okay 4/5
By Temmy (Shelton State)
Keeps me company
Total junk 1/5
Don’t waste your time on this. The app might be free but in order to watch anything you have to pay for it. Which is bad enough, but it NEVER WORKS!!! It takes forever for anything to load, and when it does it runs for a few minutes just to load again. The other network apps run fine for me so I know the problem isn’t on my end of things. CBS should be ashamed charging us for something that runs like it’s on dial-up.
ITS HORRIBLE 5/5
I thought CBS app was like most other apps, that if you have a tv subscription through directv, timewarner, Comcast, etc. you would not need to pay for an additional subscription to watch via the app. Well, I was wrong!!! It’s $5.99 a month. What’s the point of asking who your subscription is with if you’re still gonna ask your customers to 5.99 a month. It’s a complete waste of time.
Bold and the beautiful 5/5
Love it! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
What The Didn’t Tell Me 1/5
How do you cancel the All access crap. I signed up for a week trial for one purpose, only to find out my local CBS station is not available. I guess that means I’m s**t out of luck. I don’t even want to continue with the free trial cause it won’t work for what i wanted it for. So really, HOW DO I CANCEL THE ALL ACCESS FREE (FALSE) TRIAL?
App Chromecast stuck “Showing Ad” 1/5
This app could be better. We paid for the CBS yearly streaming to watch a few shows.
Unfortunately most free apps are better than this one at casting. This one gets stuck with the message “Show Ads”. We have also had issues with the streaming as well. Streaming got stuck once and we had to restart but we could not fast forward due the Show Ad issue.
Great if I want to stare at a 2x4 screen for hours, trying to watch missing episodes that are no longer on demand. Not so happy that Xfinity is not one of the providers. This is definitely not the best alternative or long term solution for catching up.
Waste of time 1/5
By God's Image...G.I.
I have Comcast and already pay for cbs. So why can’t i just log in with my comcast account information to access CBS instead you want to force me to pay now. Such a waste
Good soap 1/5
I enjoy this and y&r, but why do the shows keep shutting down almost all the way thru? I have to keep starting from beginning over and over. The interruptions are annoying. Also if I quit watching part way thru and go back in, it starts from the beginning every time. No more asking...do I want to start where left off. Beginning to hate this app.😩
Multiple devices 1/5
By Michael Rogers
So I pay to watch shows and I have to pay the same amount for multiple devices? Poor form.
Not for me, I’m trying to cancel, 1/5
By White Child
Not for me. Got the app to watch a program. Should have saved my time. App continued to freeze. It was horrible. I just want to cancel
If I could give it less than one star, I would. 1/5
If you enjoy limited content on a poor platform with commercials every 8-10 minutes, or simply enjoy the smell of $6 worth of burnt money, eat your heart out. Otherwise, just be patient and wait for Star Trek season 1 to come out on DVD.
Full of bugs 1/5
Horrendous App. It’s remarkable that a network with this much revenue, is so incompetent that they can’t even produce an app that works consistently.
You really have to wonder about the honesty of the positive ratings on here.
The CBS app is good in some regards, like for instance watching some of the best comedies like everybody hates chris. I was watching everybody hates chris and I noticed something, the audio for the episode I was watching wasn’t clear at all. You could understand what they were saying, it’s just that the audio wasn’t HD quality clear sound. But however the quality of the picture I was getting was in high quality HD. The audio issues is why I took off one star, so 4 stars is justifiable.
Deleted after 6min. 1/5
It’s a free app that requires you to pay to use it.
CBS doesn’t have any shows. Why do they think someone would pay $9.99/month for CBS lol.
They won’t even offer you a trial period unless you hand over your credit card so they can charge you if you forget to write to them and cancel after 3 days.
I am going to laugh so hard when they get caught buying good ratings. You can read them for yourself and see which ones are from real humans lol.
Only caring about ads 1/5
The ads work to perfection but everything else glitches out 2 to 3 times every episode of every show. CBS can go shove it!
Terrible Performance 1/5
This app is the worst entertainment app I have used. It freezes up all the time during commercials. You then have to restart the program you want to view, and go through how ever many commercial breaks you had already gone through just to get back to where the app dropped you. I tried upgrading to limited commercial program only to learn that I still have to watch a ton of commercials during the programs I want to view. I did not notice a difference. Now I am paying to watch the same commercials I can watch for free!
Expires when 4/5
Would be so much better if you could please add dates to when each episode expires.
All Access is too expensive 1/5
By IL iPhone Guy
Not enough good programming to justify the cost of All Access. Cancelled.
In love! 5/5
I love how great this app is. It’s amazing, sometimes I’m not home, so I get to watch this on the go.
Not live streaming anymore 1/5
Not sure what last update changed but I can no longer live stream. If i try to open live tv it crashes and takes me back to main menu. If I can’t live stream for local news and programming there isn’t any point in paying for it!
Good until recently 2/5
Seems like the last update took out a couple of helpful things. No longer lets you resume where you left off and doesn’t show what episodes you’ve watched. Bummer!
