I like the CBS App because I hate Adverts of any kind and love the way I can watch the Bold and the Beautiful and the Young & the Restless peacefully. So much better than cable tv.
I can’t even look 👀 for the shows I absolutely positively love 💕 and all I find
Are other stupid other shows!!!!!!!!!!! What’s up with THAT!!!!!!!!! I’ve never ever gave anything 1 *
CBS app very convenient 5/5
By KC Tina 80
I don’t always have time to catch my favorite shows when they air, ( some shows are on way too late for me) so during the fall season I subscribe to The CBS app. Makes everything more convenient for me. Thanks!
It's not about the commercials 1/5
It's the fact that I can't even get the app up on my phone to be bothered by them. I tried deleting it and downloading again- which kind of worked. Took me 3 app resets to just get the app up in general, agreed to new policy rules, chose my show (Survivor) and agreed to even more policy rules... for nothing to happen. It won't start the video feed. I close the app again, try to go back in and I'm stuck at the very first load screen with CBS's logo- not going anywhere. This was my first 24 hour impression of your app on my free trial. Not exactly easy to sway back to good terms at this point which is extremely sad because I was going to hit up Big Brother and Star Trek next. Please resolve this issue asap or I will be unsubscribing and leaving this review as 1 star- ultimately staying with big daddy Hulu and momma Netflix.
Dish blocked 1/5
Well from what I see you can’t even get it right with your online service.
Time to stop buying anything advertised on your channel.
One very P.O.OD customer.
Just keep it 1/5
By Barb Redgreen
I grew up in the 1960's with the original Enterprise. Hey CBS, you are detached from the people's lifes and culture. You will not lure this old trekkie into a subscription for a product you can easily offer For Purchase.
Spotty service 3/5
Every time my iOS device gets an update, I have issues with this app. Thinking of cancelling. I got it to watch Star Trek.
CBS - Colorful Beautiful Standard 5/5
By puzzle Maker 51
CBS - If I could only have access to one station, it would be CBS. Considering that I have access to over 250 channels that actually says something. I would even be giving up watching my favorite football team. That means CBS is awesome.
Don't listen to the negative comments 4/5
By Phillip Gertler
This is actually a great app. The ones complaining are the ones who can't read- Go on to their website and read how to cancel via iTunes. Anyways, this app is user friendly and a great substitute to live tv. Only reason for not 5 stars: Repetitive commercials.
Freezes up after one use 1/5
As of 11/21/17 the app freezes up after one use. Attempts to open only result in CBS logo and hangs there. Reloading (after delete) only allows one more opening before freezing.
CBS support is intermittent online and non-existent by phone. Using iOS 11.2.2
When app was working, I used it to watch all 9 episodes of Star Trek Discovery (before season ended).
Not worth the money.
Poor performing app 1/5
Half the time it doesn’t work. Really a poor performing for $5.99 a month. Guess I’ll cancel the subscription if the app never works.
Worst tv app 1/5
By Busy Port Mom
11/21/17. App won't load at all now.
Full episodes of very few shows. Otherwise only clips. Waste of space. As I can't watch episodes on the go I will no longer bother with CBS shows. I'd give app zero stars if it were possible.
It’s not working at all!!!! 1/5
Trying to watch my shows & it tells me I’m streaming on to many devices. But I’m not. Now when I try to open the app it just it won’t load up at all. Stays on the CBS logo. Please fix it
This app is just horrible. It's been like that for a long while now! CBS should be ashamed to put this crap out. With all the money they have this is the app you give us!!! It crashes and freezes all the time. I've had the app almost 2 years now and it has gotten worst! Unbelievably bad!!!!
Upgrade Issues 1/5
This app will no longer load after upgrade.
My review 4/5
I really love the app, I really love some of the shows you have as to I really did wish that you had way more shows. I do however have some issues with the app sometimes it does not want to load I get out of it but even when I go back into it, it still doesn't want to load . There are some freezes sometimes which can severely be annoying, I haven't really had a severe bad experience but it would be extremely awesome if you fixed those things that I said. I would also be really happy if you added more shows.
No connection 1/5
Does not work and I tried everything. Checked setting on phone, reset phone, and redownloaded the app again. It won’t even go to menu.
No provider 1/5
I this app is horrible. They say "We're working hard on adding more providers". They're lying, they haven't added a provider since they started the app. I have Directv. The other apps (TNT, sci channel, USA, SYFY, and SPIKE) all allow Directv.
worst streaming app 1/5
crashes whenever i try to play any episode from any show. i get one, maybe two seconds in and then the app crashes. completely awful.
It's really awesome to get all what u need just on figure tip where ever I want
Zero Stars 1/5
I downloaded this for the access to big brother for one single episode that I missed airing on tv. The app made me pay for the access and will not allow me to cancel the subscription!!! It’s been charging me every month for like $6.53! Please get me canceled!!!!
CBS All Access- love it but have some issues with live stream. 4/5
By S from Minnesota
It freezes up from time to time at least once every episode in a live stream. So I have to exit out completely, restart, and it works again fine. A bit frustrating but perhaps something that can be fixed in the future. Enjoy getting to watch it live stream on demand or later without having the commercials and saves time. Overall, we enjoy it and use it often! Thanks.
S from Minnesota
Just re subscribed. Tried to open the app and got a busy cursor, forever. Deleted the app, re downloaded it, same. Still can't watch CBS. UGH.
By Tap ninja
App should be free, no subscription needed
Cable is free, streaming should be too
Not able to watch my favorite shows 5/5
There are times I’m not able to watch my favorite shows and I don’t have recorder. This way I can still catch up. I’m as happy as can be.
Easy to use but casting not working 3/5
Nice and easy to use. Always handy to be able to catch-up on some of my favorite shows. However, the app does not work when I try to cast to my Vizio TV (other apps like YouTube work well). Issue is with the app.
Cast Problems 1/5
By 80s Guy
This is not the most reliable of streaming apps. I have not been able to cast properly to my TV going on 3 Days. When I attempt to watch a show it acts as if it is trying to load, but then drops it completely. I do not have this issue with my 3 other streaming services or YouTube. If it keeps up I will be dropping my subscription.
Immediately re-deleted 1/5
By BS nickname, thanks apple
Despite the abysmal reviews, I installed the app to watch live tv while less than 100 miles away from home. I was required to allow location services and sign in via my cable company, but as soon as I picked it I was bounced to "Your TV provider is not supported in this area" and given an option to subscribe. Okay. There's plenty of other options. Goodbye CBS app.
By Leny boo
It said you can watch live tv when I got to watch it on my phone is said I had to download a different app .
Load what N F L? 5/5
I’m watching CBS All access on my I pad air two, football from Mexico.
I loaded the app on my girlfriends iPad Air two, it wan’t play nothing!
No PIP? 3/5
Doesn’t seem to have picture-in-picture.
Worst App Ever 1/5
Don’t waste your time downloading this app it is complete trash. App keeps crashing every time I try to watch any show.
Doesn’t support Dish for Live TV 1/5
As the title says, unacceptable.
Can’t use my tv subscription 1/5
If you have DirecTv, don’t waste your time downloading this app. CBS doesn’t allow DirecTv subscribers to use their tv provider to stream live games. They’re the only ones who don’t support DirecTv. I travel a lot so I rely on my mobile/iPad apps to watch my sports and tv shows on the road. Huge letdown.
Needs to be free or no ads 3/5
The ads are now gone from non-live shows. Have no trouble watching and re-watching shows.
CBS is double dipping. Not only is it super greedy to make people pay extra (on top of their satellite/cable bill) to watch new shows like Star Trek: Discovery, but I even upgraded to the ad-free version of the service for $9.99. And I’m STILL getting minute and a half long ads every 5 minutes. And I’m not watching live tv. I’m watching two-week old shows. Really?
Not paying a second time for something I can DVR 1/5
This is ridiculous. I already pay for DirecTV which includes their service. I’ll just DVR it and watch it later.
Please add skip forward and reverse controls. 3/5
By 4.99$ well spent
Glad to have the ap.
Please add skip forward and reverse controls.
CBS rocks the apps 5/5
It is a very trendily app and all the great CBS shows are easily found, thanks!
I love this app, I miss a show then I can go online and watch. no commercial at all.
I like CBS App 5/5
I like the app not paying for something that is commercial free shows like ABC & NBC that are free
The app isn't at fault 3/5
I am sorry CBS doesn't value their customer base enough to generate income without charging for certain programming. But I do appreciate them enough to say I value their choice in the matter, although I will choose to obtain free television viewing choices. The app works although viewing is limited and offers choices when I am on the road that xfinity blocks .. Btw xfinity is the the height of customer-no-service.
Failure of an app. 1/5
My first clue of trouble was the subscription page, the birthday field is mandatory yet offers no direct entry. It required 12mo x 55yrs = 660 taps of the back arrow to enter my birthdate and a few miss taps along the way required starting over , equating to thousands of taps and an absurd amount of time to enter 10 characters, never did get target episodes to load via Chromecast on TV, terminally stuck on "loading". Plays fine on phone and tablet, but I'm not paying a dollar an inch to watch a series on a 5inch phone when I have a Chromecast on a 65in display. Upgrade to Commercial free plan only lightened by bank account. Cancelling hours old subscription.
So glad I got your App, able catch on S.W.A.T.
Terrible app 1/5
CBS needs to do some serious work on this app, it's terrible! Keeps freezing and random stoppage for no reason!!
No way around pay wall 1/5
Pathetic that Direct TV isn’t an option to use while signing in.. this app is as poor as your show selection. If it wasn’t for sports your channel wouldn’t even matter.
No thank you 1/5
I’m not paying you $6/month to watch CBS after I already pay you to watch CBS indirectly with my cable television provider. I hope you and your lame subscription app go under.
Waste of time & deleted immediately 1/5
Shocking CBS thinks they can try and charge for there crummy programming, while every other major network and cable channel is totally free with your cable/satellite subscription. There programming is awful compared to the vast majority of other networks. How can they be so arrogant? CBS, are you reading all these negative reviews? Apple should allow ZERO stars and pull this App. It can’t be generating much revenue. CBS, you’d get much more advertising revenue if your shows were free for replay, then your outsider revenue model. Keep getting bad reviews and lower ratings while the smarter and much small competition laughs all the way to the bank. I won’t even watch CBS programming because of this BS! Sell your shares.
Awesome app 5/5
By Robert Aymond
I used this app for the first time tonight and it couldn’t have gone better! Don’t hesitate to use it for tv shows you missed among other things. I’ll be using it again.
Two words “Paid Membership”💩💩💩
Why should I pay AND you sell me on? 1/5
Ok, so I understand why you might offer different tiers of subscription services. I’m ok with that.
I am not okay with:
- CBS Apple TV App will not let me sign up for a monthly service using my valid Apple ID
- And iPhone app will not let me sign up with Apple ID at all (where is the option?) but instead you want me to give my contact details and check a box for you to share them. Well no, that isn’t happening. I work too long and hard to pay people to send me marketing junk.
“Dissatisfied” is not a strong enough word.
