Simple To Use - Cable Login Required 5/5
If you can't provide a cable login, this is not the app for you. Knowing that, it has a simple, intuitive interface. Automatically signs me back in w/ Xfinity, never crashes and has reasonable update schedule.
No stars. 1/5

UPDATE for 2017 mlb playoffs.
Same issues exist. See “flyerbry” comments.
Too Bad Sport fans. TBS is Total BS!
Actually works 5/5
By 172 drvr
One of the few sports streaming apps that actually works with chromecast
Works great! 5/5
Works great! Love the live TV feature and was able to watch baseball glitch free! Chromecast support works amazing!!
Works perfectly 5/5
By LJL sup
Great app, works perfectly every time.
Constantly crashing 1/5
By Pinser Head
I've run the TBS app on several devices, and it's terrible on each. Causes my roku to crash, and the app won't even fully load on my iPad before it also crashes. Even the TBS website is the hottest of messes. It's like the developers wanted to use every possible graphic and color and effect all at the same time. This app is the equivalent of comic sans, or a mouse icon with trailing stars from the 90s. I imagine that all of the developers are either 12 year old girls, or crusty old white dudes who know nothing about the technology. The TBS app looks like PowerPoint vomited all over the Internet and somehow someone thought it was the best. Get your shiz together, TBS. To be honest, you can only go up from here.
Keeps freezing 2/5
While watching the MLB playoffs , the game keeps freezing and I have to keep closing and re-opening again continually.
Los Angeles Dodgers 1/5
The announcers for the playoffs are horrible.
I love getting kicked out of the app and having to watch two minutes of ads to get back to the game. If your app can’t support it, leave it to Fox Sports Go
Major network and can't even create a working app 1/5
Pretty embarrassing that a company who should be a professional at streaming content is absolutely horrendous. Expect video feeds to be choppy, terrible quality, and eventually freeze.
Do not bother!!! 1/5
By not secure
Can’t watch live TV 1/5
I wish the NL was on a real network that was usable like the ALMon FS1
I have a great connection but can't even watch the ball game because the stream constant gets stuck buffering and freezing.
Just crashes a lot. That’s it. Like a lot. Annoying.
Waste of Time 1/5
After downloading, the app would not open. No matter how long I waited the circle would not stop spinning. I tried exiting and restarting, closing and reopening to no avail. Don't have time to waste waiting for something to happen.
On Purpose 1/5
By Trash Baseball Shoew
I fully believe that TBS intentionally allows the app to crash every two minutes so that I am forced to watch the same bad advertisement Over and over and over and over again. It is a cheap gimmick to pad there stats so that they can tell GEICO that customers watch their ads 491 times during one baseball game- clearly a playoff and regular season record. Worst app ever.
Apple TV and iPhone 7. Ios 11 1/5
By Frustrated mlb
Cannot get the app to work without mirroring to my Apple TV. It DOES mirror but most other apps you can watch on the device (ie Apple TV) and Continue to use your wireless device (iphone7). This app requires mirroring at all times, so if you’re streaming, it’s the only thing you can do. Also, it jumps around constantly. 30 seconds ahead, then back 30 seconds, then 30 seconds behind. Needs work.
1) MLB game is playing fine but there’s a pink overlay and no audio. Really annoying. Force closed the app and same issue.
2) Game is playing but picture freezes constantly (on 50MB connection). Sometimes get an error that it must close. Reopen the app and they play an ad before they let you back in, making me miss even more of the game.
3) Game will pause forever and then start fast forwarding. One time it even jumped back about 15 minutes.
Basic and bug ridden 1/5
Video playback freezes constantly. Live tv will just stop working. No support for AirPlay? Even when using mirror. Come on. Boo this app!
This app is just like the title says. You can barely stream on LTE. It makes you watch commercials every time you have to restart it which is about every inning if it even lets you watch the game. What a joke. If I could give it a zero or negative star rating I would.
Constantly lags, crashes, and goes pixelated despite strong internet connection. Never had this kind of trouble with any streaming services. Have to rewatch ads every time it crashes. Worst streaming app I've ever used.
Awful App 2/5
Trying to watch the NLCS and it seems like any time there is a good play about to be made they go to a commercial break. I’d rather risk a virus and stream it online than use this app, so bad. Why couldn’t it be on FOX?!
App keeps saying it can't play the game 1/5
Don't understand how it can the ads ok but when I'm trying to watch postseason baseball it says it's having trouble playing the game. Really frustrating have to keep closing and opening the app just to watch the game minutes at time.
Crashes all the time want play any of the MLB playoffs. Has to be the worst app of all time
Add ability to stream to TV. Or add app for Apple TV, Xbox, etc.
Why must I watch an ad every time the stream crashes? 1/5
The video quality is great. However, I downloaded the app so I could stream the MLB playoffs while at work. I have great LTE connection, but the stream fails at least once per inning every game. The video cuts out during major action in the game, and the worst part is that I cannot simply press play and join the stream instantly, but I am forced to miss an additional 15 seconds of ball play to watch an ad! How ridiculous is that?! This app has a lot of potential, but you guys need to work on the load your servers can handle on each stream. I can understand ads between innings and perhaps when you open the app, but why must I watch an ad each time I reopen a stream without even closing the app? You're killing me, Smalls!
App keeps freezing 1/5
Tried watching the MLB playoffs and the app keeps crashing and freezing. Not a good alternative to actual cable. Even the Apple TV app freezes a lot. Horrible.
Don’t download 2/5
Worse than MLB app, didn’t know that was possible
I hate this app 1/5
This is the only way I could watch the Cubs play in the playoffs since broadcast television hasn't joined this century yet. Buggy and crashes ALL THE TIME.
You can only use this app IF you have a TV subscription. We do not subscribe to TV but I was hoping to stream the Cubs/Dodgers game on my iPad. Not possible because I don't have a TV provider. Seems a bit limited to me.
App is EXTREMELY sluggish whether on WiFi or mobile network. I thought this app supported casting but apparently not. If it does somehow support Chromecast it’s so horrible I haven’t been able to figure out how yet.
Not great 3/5
By Fredrick Merkle
Downloaded to watch MLB playoffs. Compared to the Fox Sports app watching the AL series, the TBS app doesn’t live up. Can’t pause, rewind or go to instant live. It’s ok, needs improvements.
I love TBS. So the LIVE feature is the best. Able to watch my Seinfeld show and MLB playoff baseball.
Ohhh, and Family Guy rules.
New American Dad episodes,please.
Reinventing tv to maximize ads.
Turner- I am not having trouble with the app. It is working exactly as you intended.
New update fix everything 5/5
By online viewer
Runs great with new update. Love the app
My bad 5/5
I was mistaken, my apologies. I accused tbs of being a bad app but the problem was actually with my Roku player. I had to reset it and everything worked fine. My bad! It's a great app!
Enjoy your Geico ads 3/5
Plays an add anytime you start a live stream. Instead of actually playing what’s on the channel they show an ad first. Stupid app.
Edit: increased from 1 to 3 stars because of developer response. Please remove ad from live channel stream to get more stars.
Can't sign in... 1/5
By No name 613
I have AT&T U-verse internet service, but they provide my TV service via DirecTV. So supposedly, I should be able to sign in to DirecTV using my universal AT&T "Access ID". However, this does not work in this app. Instead, it takes me to the DirecTV website where I can oh-so-helpfully sign in using my handy AT&T "Access ID" (as advertised), but this this help/enable me to sign in to the app itself...
Among The Best TV Apps I've tried. 5/5
I download tv apps to cast to my tv in my bedroom, and I can say the TBS app has been one of the best apps. A lot of apps won't let you cast live tv, won't let you sign in if you have xfinity, even if you pay to have the channel, and have a lot of glitches. TBS surpasses all of those negatives. I have absolutely no issues with this app and it plays on my cast until I turn it off. Excellent! Keep up the great work!
Poor performance 1/5
Reload, crash, reload, deleted. Always fails when needed most for baseball viewing.
iOS 9.3.5, iPad
Awful quality 1/5
On WiFi. On over 100Mbs download speed and the streaming video quality makes me want to kill myself or punch a small animal.
Worst app ever 1/5
Can’t enjoy the MLB playoffs because of all the glitches! Worst app ever!!!!
This app needs serious work. Good internet doesn’t seem to matter, constantly getting the ‘we are having trouble playing the video’ screen. Terrible performance with worse reliability. Clearly TBS is in over their head with this simple technology that they can’t get to work. I hope MLB picks a better channel for playoffs in the future.
Connection fails, ads shown each time 1/5
Same review as everyone else: bad connection despite all bars and full WiFi and then reconnect requires to back out and the ads are shown again missing 30 sec to 2 min of live action.
Not ready to handle MLB postseason capacity 1/5
By Marley Beats
Chronic buffering, frozen video, and repeating audio errors during the 2017 MLB NLDS, and NLCS postseason live broadcasts.
Repeated “Sorry, we are having trouble playing the video right now” errors. Generally a frustrating customer experience.
It makes you wonder if @TBS has enough network capacity to handle the amount of concurrent viewers. @MLB should ensure their broadcast partners have enough network capacity.
Awful Stability 1/5
The app constantly has to inject ads into the stream, causing hang-ups and the need to restart. This needs a major overhaul.
Baseball playoffs 5/5
Parents had Tv issues during playoff baseball... TBS app saved the day !! Not once but twice during this years playoffs. Great app, highly recommend
One of the worst apps in history 1/5
Using this to watch live tv is literally worse than nothing; simply missing the show/game is less frustrating than restarting the app every 4 minutes when it randomly stops the action to load three ads and brings you back to action you've already seen. Inexcusably bad experience for where technology is today.
App wont work 1/5
I have tried multiple times to watch baseball on this app and all i get is the spinning wheel. It’s annoying not to be able to watch what i want when i want.
Has to be one of the worst streaming apps ever.
