CBS app reviews

  • device to tv issues 3/5

    By GarryK.1
    Constant crashing, no option to resume, serious issues going in and out of commercial (always have to start from the beginning); even worse when transferring from a device to a TV
  • Very good. 😉👍🏼 5/5

    By TechTalkGuy
    This app offers a much better viewing experience when compared to the website for the following reasons: 1. This app plays the episode in full screen (not available from their website). 2. The ads are not too long and feel much better balanced (compared to the website). I genuinely enjoy watching my favorite shows with this app. Recommended: Yes of course! 😉👍🏼
  • Big brother 5/5

    By msnedie
    Too many adds
  • Subtitles on by default? 2/5

    By Everybody Be Cool
    CBS really is for old people! LOL

    By NJacuguy
    Used to watch CBS This Morning every morning. Stopped a half yr ago b/c on Roku you literally had to uninstall, reinstall and sign in toor tv provider on the app EVERY DAY or you couldn’t watch live tv. Didn’t do that obviously and stopped watching entirely. Just gave it a try again and it literally won’t install - when you got to the app and press install it just closes lol. This has never happened on any app I can remember just CBS. This is on both my TCL R615 and my Roku + on my Samsung so it’s not the TV or device. You guys lost a viewer for life. Well, I might try again in a year or 2. LOL
  • Great Television 5/5

    By spartengx
    I’ve always loved Blue Bloods
  • The worst streaming platform 1/5

    By Jefe Ain't Happy
    This is by far the worst streaming platform available. Constant crashing, no option to resume (always have to start from the beginning), even worst experience when projecting from a device to a tv. Very disappointed in this app.
  • Need news 3/5

    By smoke-eater
    In order to stream local news you must login with a TV provider but I do not have a TV provider I live about 100 miles out from the television station and use an outdoor antenna in a rural area would be nice if you stream your nightly news live
  • My favorite App 5/5

    By ira gomez
    For me is one of the best app I found, with very goods shows.
  • Young and the restless and Bold in a beautiful 5/5

    By I did you won't except
    My two favorite shows to watch and when I am at work the people TV goes out and does not work so then I have to result to watching it on my phone and yes I love the app I would recommend it to many.
  • Moms 5/5

    By moms100
    Will it be free for a long time cause if it cost I don’t want it ? The only thing is there’s to many ads... 😒
  • Too many glitches 1/5

    By Jessiekee
    When casting the video to my tv from my phone, it constantly glitches and closes the app. When you reopen the app, it starts you from the beginning of the episode instead of where you left off. Normally these glitches happen during commercials. You end up having to watch all the commercials again in order to fast forward to where you left off and sometimes, lots of times, it glitches again and starts you over. It’s extremely frustrating to the point where I give up trying to cast it to the tv.
  • Not happy 1/5

    By atretch
    App won’t let me use cable provider even after asking me if I want to use my provider by name, says it can’t be found even though they named it for me
  • Bold & Beautiful / Young & Restless 5/5

    By virgo Lee 02
    Been watching for years. Good to know if I miss a day, I can pull it up on my cell phone. It would help if we could still see them on our cell when a Special Report interrupts the program like on the other stations.
  • Love my soaps 5/5

    By Lollee's Mommy
    I do like having the CBS app because I can still watch Y&R AND B&B ifI miss them at 12:30 and 1:39.
  • Ready to switch from CBS MORNINGS 1/5

    By fredi o
    I have spent day 2 trying to figure out what’s happening on CBS MORNINGS. It’s starting to feel like ABC. I really love Gail, Nate and Tony but I’m sick of all entertainment stuff. Where are the news and public interest stories. You took a left turn and I will give it another day or so. Then I’ll watch old movies instead. Thanks, Fredi OHara
  • Cut the cord 5/5

    By Suomilady
    Love being able to watch the soaps! No cable for me! Ghosts is great, too!
  • Garbage 1/5

    By asjd09
    Live tv never works. Always playing the wrong channel/programming
  • Ok but needs more 2/5

    By loserpoohijk
    This app is ok but needs more. For instance I am TRYING to watch Young Sheldon but can’t watch that much because it only has 5 episodes avible. Signed, Tooty Frutty Boi 🥺🏳️‍🌈
  • Ms. Rosalind 5/5

    By Ms. Rosalind
    We are tremendously enjoying the CBS app! It allows us to watch our favorite soaps, evening news, and seasonal shows for free; while eliminating expensive cable, and satellite television prices! I think I’m going to like streaming after all! Thank you CBS….YOU ROCK!!
  • Young and Restless,Bold and beautiful 5/5

  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By M19373528290193737
    It never works with AirPlay and the roku app version won’t even open up
  • It’s 2022 CBS, join us 1/5

    By compmom
    If you’d like to watch a show that you missed prepare to be held hostage to commercials.
  • WAAAY to much ads 2/5

    By b mktsksktsks
    I gave this a 2 because it has so many ads and after you watch about 4 five minutes later i get in ad and i have to watch 7!!! I love that its all ffee but the ads is way too far. I would recommend maybe other apps because this one gives more ads then any other app.
  • SOOOO MANY ADS!!?! 1/5

    By Skyler520Gardner
    I was watching a series on cbs which I hadn’t used in the past bc I’ve been told anything and everything is just better. Boy was everyone right. I got 20 ads in one episode and each ad was 30 seconds long. I’m not going to use cbs ever again until this issue is resolved. I’m not dealing with all these ads.
  • A Tafoya 5/5

    By 92231alo
    I very much enjoy this app all my favorite programs available on the go or at home! 5 stars+
  • I love it ❤️ 4/5

    By FatKayco
    There is one flaw and that is there are way too many adds they are like add 1 out of 5 and that’s happens every 5-10 mins
  • Freezes up every commercial break 1/5

    By elephant2017
    I can’t even watch the show I want because every time there’s a commercial break it goes through about one commercial and freezes. I’ve exited the app, I’ve deleted and reinstalled, and I’ve waited patiently for it to start playing again. This app is awful. Would not recommend even downloading it. It’s not worth the time.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Healthy Coach
    I enjoy catching up on my shows on the app While traveling ! Easy to use and very clear !
  • Just bad 2/5

    By my cat oliver
    I downloaded this to watch young Sheldon but they said no you can’t there’s no season 1 2 3 4 only 5 and you don’t even get episode 1 you only get episode 11 to 22 id rather go to a streaming website cuz this is just trash
  • Bold & Beautiful 5/5

    By sunshirene
    I missed an episode of B&B at home but watched it on my phone using the CBS app. It was great being able to catch up!
  • First Time User 5/5

    By LadyT55Rog
    The Y&R app is easy and great to use! Highly recommend using it!
  • Update! 1/5

    By Coni.Pati
    Please update this app. Every time i try to sign in with my tv provider the app takes me BACK to the previous screen to select the tv provider AGAIN. Keeps happening over and over again and it’s quite annoying. Bad enough you’re forcing people to use Paramount+ to watch LIVE tv, even if you have a tv subscription. How does that help when I’m away on business or vacation and want to stream something? I hate it here.
  • Simply doesn’t work 1/5

    By The Anarchemist
    The only thing that would make this app better is if it functioned at all. Right now it’s an app for looking at the big CBS Eye, then an inability to connect to AT&T U-verse. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled but again, it isn’t so much an “app” as it is a non-app; it literally has no application and does nothing at all.
  • Young and The Restless 5/5

    By 💗Bella
    Truly something that I have watched for over 45 years!!! I am 50 years young and my babysitter used to watch it and since then I have been hooked on the Newman family and Genoa City!!! I just wish I could just for one day get to go to be on the set and be there at Genoa City!!! I love the Newmans’ and would be so happy!!!
  • Bold and Beautiful 5/5

    By Bo699
    I wish it were on for an hour everyday! 30 minutes is not enough! Love Quinn and Carter together and Ridge and Taylor together! Finn hurry up and get well,Steffens needs u! Get rid of Sheila! It’s my favorite show! Boo Bush699
  • Great! 5/5

    By creekroadranger
    Great app to watch my daily shows anytime!
  • Full of bugs 1/5

    By Thine
    You should hire a good developer to fix all of your bugs. The app freezes up switching to the commercials.
  • Buggy and consistently hangs at commmercials 1/5

    By CB Is Good
    The app consistently hangs and spins when a show hits the commercial break. You never know if the show I’ll resume after commercials or if you have to exit out of the app and resume it which can result in watching another series of commercials.
  • Young and the Restless 1/5

    By Can delete now
    I’ve been watching every night on CBS app since I work during the day. And I go to watch tonight (6/30/22) and you now have to subscribe. Very disappointing.
  • CBS APP 5/5

    By janet, Glenn & Bella
    Love that I can watch what I want! When I want!!!
  • Worst streaming app ever 1/5

    By Belake19
    This app is by far the worst network app I use. The biggest problem is there is no Chrome-cast support. The performance on ApplePlay is absolutely abysmal, every 10 minutes the program likes to pause and stutter for two minutes, and then jump ahead. I would truly give this app 0 stars if I could, it is terrible. I would expect so much more from a network as big as CBS.
  • Bold and the Beautiful 💙 5/5

  • Room for improvement 3/5

    By huxleysawthefuture
    There is an issue with picture in picture and keeping track of where you leave off in a series at this time. Otherwise it is functional and loads smoothly.
