Too many 3/5
By knower of things
Too many commercials back to back
Blue is cool 5/5
By trex of the land
Been watching for a few episodes for free now I have to pay, not cool, but the quality is good and well it is what it is we all have to make a profit to keep going.
CBS. FBI 4/5
RICHARD Beall recommended it to me and I enjoy it!! :)
Love my app, 5/5
APP doesn’t play well with TV 1/5
By ST Megadeath
I use my iPad Pro to stream video using the HDMI dongle connection to my TV screen. Although all other apps (the iTunes TV app, Netflix, Amazon Prime) work well and expand the video image to the width of the screen, the CBS app doesn’t expand the video to the full size of the TV screen, and produces instead a small, unwatchable video surrounded by a wide black border. I am unable to use this app, and stream from a computer instead.
Young and Restless 5/5
Love catching up on missed episodes.
Spotty at best, lousy at worst 1/5
Too much buffering & stalling, drop outs, etc.
Show episodes not visible or a different shows episodes will be there instead.
I’m paying you for this, it needs to work seamlessly, all the time.
Connect with tv providers is a joke you still have to subscribe and pay to watch anything
What’s wrong with the App? 1/5
Why does it NOT cast? And it doesn’t play on my phone after I choose cast. Didn’t do this last season of Discovery. 24 hours and I’m cancelling.
Not Free 1/5
You need to take the word “free” out of the app description. It is free for 1 week. After that, you can choose to pay 5.99 per month for limited commercials or 9.99 per month for commercial-free.
Doesn’t let me play ANY episodes 2/5
By Alex O'Loughlin lover
Every time I want to watch an episode on here I get maybe five minutes in before it says “Fatal Error: playback failed, please check your connection” even though my WiFi is giving me no problems. And this will continue to occur so I can’t watch the rest of it. So much for ‘bug fixes and improvements’. Love the shows but this app is becoming trash.
Frustrated App User 1/5
This isn’t my favorite TV app (I have several). Prior to the last update, if you stopped watching something and went back to watch again it would ask to “Resume Watching “ from where you left off. It doesn’t do that anymore and it definitely frustrating!!!!!
No widescreen or zoom support for iPhone XR 2/5
Just tried playing the new Star Trek season 2, which is in cinematic widescreen, and it’s boxed in on all sides basically wasting 50% of the screen real estate on any iPhone X model. Ideally it needs to have native support for cinematic widescreen but at the very least offer a zoom feature.
Terrible, terrible, terrible. Constant long ads. Only place my profile works is on my phone and you only get a few episodes of show. The set up of the site is very poor as well.
Utter rip off 1/5
This app is expensive and doesn’t measure up to what advertised.
Used it for years and love it 5/5
I’ve used this app for many years now and have been very happy with it. But recently I think it has a bug, whenever I go to watch a show it just stops at random times and doesn’t start again for like 30 seconds. I’ve tried to see if the problem was on my end but whatever I do it still does it. Hopefully you can get that fixed please, either way I’ll still use it it’ll just be more difficult.
Doesn’t work with dock connector. 1/5
What a damned shame. Downloaded the episode of Discovery tonight and connect to my TV and nothing. Please update to allow the use of the dock connector.
Constant crashing 1/5
This used to be a great app to watch some of my favorite show but now the app either crashes or gives me an error message every time I try to use it.
I like it 5/5
By korea miquel espiratu lapena
I said like you like that
Basic Channel to Pay for? 1/5
In my opinion, any basic/local channel should get NO STARS, if you have to purchase a subscription. Channels like ABC and NBC do not charge for access, especially when already paying a TV Provider for access. Seems greedy on my part and I will not subscribe.
Slow like is 1999 and I was using a mode 1/5
This app does not work well with iPad. It is very slow to load and often stops for rebutting. I thought Maybe my provider Spectrum has problems with CBS and slow its contents. But this is happening with Direct TV too... I have no problems with Comedy Central or NBC... but it is just impossible to watch the Late night show on this app
Can i use chromecast to stream from this app to my tv?
Commercial load issues 4/5
By xx Tennessee whiskeyxx
I like the app. The only issue is that if you do not purchase the commercial free app and you have to watch commercials sometimes the commercials will get stuck on a load and be froze forcing you to restart the app and hopefully make it through all the commercials so that you can watch your show
Juliet and women’s rights the me to movement 5/5
By r quimtom
Re: a report you referred to the me to movement is the first time women has had an all inclusive first time men are being told how a woman should be treated. I do not agree there was women’s rights movement in the past.
Don’t support most TV provider 1/5
Even Comcast customers can’t sign up
Two stars 2/5
By dr who 87
You guys need to fix this app I have been having issues with the app it only works when it wants too I am getting fed up with this app
Only current season of NCIS Los Angeles.....Why??? 2/5
I originally subscribed to CBS All Access so I could watch all seasons of NCIS Los Angeles, but found I can only watch episodes of the current season. They offer all seasons of NCIS and NCIS New Orleans, but not NCIS Los Angeles!! So disappointed. This is NOT All Access!!
Horrible Service 2/5
Not getting what I paid for.
Got the app just for Star Trek and it’s not letting me watch, It wants me to upgrade for more money, but won’t let me upgrade as I need to use the device I signed up with, which is long gone.
Crashes on launch for over 2 months now on my iPhone XS. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several times.
Low quality app for a premium price. 1/5
Can’t make the video fill the screen on iPhone. Navigation is terrible. No picture in picture on iPad. Impossible to scrub video. Controls while playing video are tiny and unusable. Yet this is how they deliver some of their exclusive content. It’s really shameful. I would be ashamed to have taken part in the development of this app.
CBS. App 4/5
Best app I’ve had all year
Chrome cast bust 1/5
Does not load with chrome cast ultra. Pull out my wife’s S9. Loads no problem. It’s cool apple, I only paid you $1400 for this phone that can’t run a simple app. Thanks a bunch!
The Best App Ever!!!!! 5/5
Love love love this app no matter where I am I cam watch my favorite!!!!! CBS
Vote with your wallet. 1/5
I envision the executives at CBS laughing at all of us idiots who pay them for the privilege of using a terrible app. And because of that, we're actually paying to watch the same amount of commercial minutes as tv, when you consider the universal complaint below.... The app fails, constantly, and requires us to watch commercial breaks over and over and over and over, just to get through an episode. It's sad that we are still here posting the same failure time and time again, yet we continue paying. If enough people (or everyone) canceled the $5.99 fee, and maybe even cable tv (making sure to cite CBS's failure as a reason), maybe they would pay attention. But as it stands, they do not care... at all. And as long as we pay, they never will. In fact, the fee will most certainly increase someday. That's not to say reviews are completely useless. Just not solely useful. Vote also with your wallet, and your word of mouth.
Bump. No changes.... at all. Terrible app.
The young and the restless 5/5
I love to watching cbs because I don’t have that channel I love everything about cbs
Shows stop playing before the show is over 1/5
I try watching the free new shows that comes on free tv and they stop before the show is over even after closing the app and restarting it stops at the same place
Dr Ellen 5/5
By Dr. E. Wortham
I love being able to keep up with my favorite daytime show when I’m not close to a TV. I love this App
SLOW LOADING JUNK 2/5
By Fedup user 51
The content I like the app loads slowly slowly slowly. Pictures fill in ONE AT A time and then disappear. Come on CBS, you can do much better!!
Easy to set up and use
Perry Mason episodes pretty much perfect 5/5
The Perry Mason episodes appear as they did - possibly better - than when they were sent from CBS New York/Los Angeles to the affiliates for broadcast in the late 50s and 60s.
All access episodes 5/5
I love CBS and all it’s shows. However I don’t like the fact that I have to pay for the app if I pay a cable provider for access to this channel
Full episodes, of many genres of everything. Thanks for making me smile
Tight wad. 4/5
Did not like having to go to setting on my phone to turn off closed captioning. Was the purpose to not include an on screen closed caption icon to save money? All other apps I have used has that function. I did like having limited commercials. App was easy to use. Thanks
The worst streaming service 1/5
You want to watch old shows? HA
You want to watch shows that have been ota for years? HA
You want to watch sports? What a JOKE.
But my favorite
You want to unsubscribe? HAAAAAAAA
They make that difficult as can be.
CBS- you’re the worst, and I think I’m fine not having you available on my television over the air. I used to be down about it, but I see now that making your tower accessible to slightly more than half of this metro area is probably a move for this sub.
Naw, I’ll pass.
Erratic and inconsistent 3/5
Something is seriously wrong with this app. Well, two things. One, the interface is wildly inconsistent. Want to watch Colbert? Tap on the photo. Want to watch Short Treks? Don’t waste your time with the photo; tap on the ellipsis, then on the WATCH button. But whatever you do don’t try to cast to your tv — all you get is a bright blue logo on your tv screen with text that says “Ready To Cast.” Fun!
Young & Restless 5/5
Needs to Fire Writer on Y&R To get Ratings back up So I Can watch at Night again
Access limits 4/5
Annoyed that I am paying for this and only able to view limited live tv. It only comes on live tv after 8 pm weekdays and won’t allow me to access any daytime tv. Both NBC and ABC allow full access.
App does not work in St John VI 2/5
This app did work in VI. It no longer does. It keeps thinking we are out of the USA.
Beware of iCloud storage 3/5
Unless you turn off this app’s backup to iCloud option, it will use a lot of your iCloud storage.
