CBS app reviews

  • Ads ads ads - updated 1/5

    By Izzywa
    Horrible I stopped using the app additionally the app never remembers me when I sign in with my provider and it’s just a pain. So many other options that work better and without killing your limited time with ads!
  • Too many commercials 2/5

    By bronxnygal
    Every ten minutes there are commercials. Try finding your show elsewhere
  • Young and the restless 5/5

    By 8 Grammys
    My name is Donna Dickson and I have been watching the young and restless from the beginning and I love it so much
  • 83 and still enjoy CBS 5/5

    By Basketball Fran
    Thank you for the balance of television programming for all groups of people.
  • If I can give you zero stars, I would 1/5

    By Briguy122363
    The Apple TV app is the most useful way to utilize the CBS app. I love watching shows on demand, but cannot, because whenever you select login with your TV subscriber, the app guides you to a website, there is no activation code. This is been going on for months, if not longer. Works fine on my Amazon fire stick. Please fix this.
  • The Young And The Restless 5/5

    By Eternally Wonderful
    What a fabulous app!
  • Enjoy the app except for one thing.. 4/5

    By Erianne N
    I'm so tired of having to put my password in for FiOS almost every time I go to stream love TV! If I go back to it 'live' same day I usually am good, but every day I have to put my password and user name in, there should be an option to save it. Other than this issue I find using it to be pretty easy and I like how quickly all of the series are updated with new shows quickly after airing. I have to wait until 8pm eastern for another network to put my soap up, I can always watch Young and the Restless and bold and the Beautiful by about 6pm eastern on this app. I do wish you would put all of the old episodes of Guiding Light and As The World Turns online somewhere too, miss those soaps.
  • Don’t waste your time 1/5

    By soontobeformerattuser
    This app is terrible! I have yet to watch an episode of Survivor in its entirety in one sitting. The show stops for some unknown reason and you can’t get back to where you left off. Starts back at the beginning and makes you suffer through the 5 terrible drug company commercials! I’m through!
  • Apple TV app is terrible 1/5

    By Liamdagreat
    It’s honestly astonishing that in 2023 CBS still can make a functional app for Apple TV. I’ve never encountered an app that is so difunctional with so many issues.
  • Love this App 5/5

    By HighMaintenance 17
    I get to see The Young and the Restless 24/7 makes me Happy now I am home with my dog. Thank You CBS
  • Equalizer 5/5

    By Crazyeddie60
    The app seems to be better than the on demand option.
  • Love free streaming, hate ad length 4/5

    By KaetyH
    I love everything about this but the ads being so long is a massive turn off. The free streaming makes up but the ads are a lot
  • STILL a Stupid App 1/5

    By JanitC
    Don’t waste your time. Ridiculous.
  • Easily accessible; great programming 5/5

    By lindareads
    5 star entertainment
  • Button disappeared 🤷🏽‍♀️ 1/5

    By Nickname 1 Nickname 2
    Why did the cast button disappear?! I enjoyed watching The Price is Right using chromecast but the option just…disappeared from the application. I’ve uninstalled & reinstalled the app multiple times and my iPhone is up to date. I guess CBS just assumed that everyone has a smart tv 🤷🏽‍♀️.
  • The Young and the restless 1/5

    By ufullofshit
    The app has a tendency to keep freezing and doesn’t start where it left off, but goes back to the beginning. Very disappointing.
  • CBS-SWAT Review 5/5

    By smiley red girl
    I was so excited that I could watch SWAT on the CBS channel . I was not able to record the program because of the recent power outages . Thank you CBS for allowing me to watch SWAT and not miss any episodes . Thank you Thank you !!
  • crap 1/5

    By dodgertom
    won’t let me watch the game. says i’m watching, but screen is blank. i pay for local broadcast on my cable, but app says this content is not provided. cbs used to be professionally run. no more, i guess
  • No Activation Code Ever Shows 1/5

    By CBSDoesntWorkEver
    When trying to connect a tv provider, there is supposed to be an activation code displayed to enter in on the given website. I’ve had this app for 2 years and it has never once shown a code, but instead simply shows a square in a place the code should be.
  • This app annoys me 1/5

    By melissahciwbcieibf
    I literally hate this app but I have to watch survivor every week. When I try to AirPlay it on my TV, the ads always pause and I have to clear the app and restart my show. FROM THE BEGINNING. And watch all the stupid ads again. Then the same thing will happen again and make me watch the ads even more when I try to skip ahead to my spot. 0 stars from me thank you very much.
  • Great app 5/5

    By jusmerz
    Just used the app and love it
  • Background noise 1/5

    By Cszzx
    Background music and noise on CBS best shows is all way too loud and has made my favorite shows all un watchable !! Fix it or louse your market!!
  • Bold and the Beautiful 5/5

    By Tammydeedaren
    Love this show and this app as dish tv s dvr does NOT work properly and skips recording so iv found I can save myself 10$ a month and get rid of that and watch on my phone thru this app!!
  • Worst program ever!!! 1/5

    By Watcher123456789
    In a progression extending over many months the program has deteriorated to the point where a tv provider sign in is required for EVERY episode of every program I try to view. Most times even that process needs to be successfully completed two or three times to work. This situation always happens when going from one program to another (SWAT to 60 Minutes for example.). Now the process must be done, sometimes repeatedly, for episodes of the same program (60 Minutes to 60 Minutes.) Signing in for a single episode can now take up to 5+ minutes or sometimes is not successful at all. Best of all in requesting support from the application page I was informed “Please be aware that due to a high volume of email, we're unable to provide a response, but do appreciate you taking the time to contact us.” How odd that I don’t appreciate the time they didn’t take to contact/help me. This application should be removed.
  • Did I find a bug? 2/5

    By gscottoliver
    I installed the app for the first time, signed in to my TV provider, then created a personal account. But when I look at the Account page, it shows “Guest.” I don’t see any way to add shows to a list, or pick up where I left off, either. Am I missing something, or is this a bug?
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Waterloo63ABC
    Similar to other real reviews…right at the end of a show there’s technical problems which is probably on purpose so you can watch the commercials again. I expect nothing less from CBS and will no longer watch the network.
  • Hate the update 1/5

    By msdagotx
    App does not save where you left off. I watch Y&R daily and have to search where I left off everyday so I can try to finish an episode.
  • Worst of the TV apps 1/5

    By vantage piont
    I constantly have issues with this terrible app. Especially when traveling. Of course it will play the advertisements with no problem at the beginning but then won’t play the show. CBS, you need to contact NBC on how to create an actual working app.
  • ABC 5/5

    Love ghosts! Home economics and better off dead!! Awesome work!
  • Just like TV 5/5

    By Small TV !
    Should of done this ,along time ago !
  • Latest release breaks Chromecast on my iPhone. 5/5

    By Fribble482
    I’m running iOS 16.3.1. Chromecast icon no longer appears after loading the latest CBS app last night. Please fix. Thanks! Update: (3/10/2023) Thank you for your reply. The app is working fine now. Chromecast is fully functional. Thanks for your help!
  • Awesome being able to see my shows anywhere 5/5

    By singingdana
    I love my CBS app! I can watch my daytime favorite, The Young and the Restless anywhere and anytime! I love the choices and easy access…. Thank you CBS
  • Great fun people especially Katie Mattie, my cousin 5/5

    By Tomgreen48
    I love watching this show because their are many chances to win. Love the energy especially Drew. Great show.
  • We’re sorry, an error occurred. 1/5

    By NotaTBSappfan
    Every time I use this app on Roku, I get this message. I have to log back into the app. There are no other apps that this happens. Frustrating.
  • Whyyyyy 3/5

    By ladedoll
    Tooooo many commercials
  • Does not work 1/5

    By Cablough
    I cannot get this app to work. I’ve tried uninstalling & reinstalling but I get an error whenever I try to watch anything. I get the message “we’re sorry an error occurred “ and I have to hard close the app. It worked briefly when I first installed and connected to my cable provider and hasn’t worked since.
  • I’m confused… 2/5

    By luckyforme111
    I use to be able to stream this through chrome cast but not anymore. What’s up with that?
  • Maybe even worse than HBOMax app 1/5

    By NYC_feg
    Truly one of the worst apps. Every single time I use it I have to delete, redownload and re log in. I try and watch a show- it freezes, pauses. Simply just stops playing. Idk who the engineers in charge of this crap are? But they should be fired
  • Crashes 2/5

    By 419x
    It keeps crashing with ~4 mins left in the show, so then you have to watch an extra 7 commercials if you want to get back to where you were and watch the rest of the show (if it doesn’t crash again).
  • Breaks connection at advertisements. 1/5

    By appbuzzzted
    I realize the purpose is to feed me a steady stream of ads. But if the app stops at every commercial, nobody wins.
  • Ads 3/5

    By RogieK40
    Way to long and to many ads
  • Loving the fast catch-up 5/5

    By NameCrafter
    I love the fact that I can catch up on episodes I’ve missed within a day.
  • CHROMECAST?? 1/5

    By murmurings
    worked before. now it doesn’t even show up. please test all aspects of your product before rolling out updates fix the chromecast
  • What a savior. 5/5

    By mymisty1
    We were so lost when we couldn’t afford cable and lost our favorite TV shows until we found CBS online.
  • No happy dance with “fatal error” 1/5

    By vet WM
    One minute it was great. Then I tried to stream the same show for my husband and it won’t play. Now every program gives the message “fatal error.” I’ve uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted, everything. But now nothing works. This “improvement” is a raging disappointment.
  • Help 3/5

    By Cbsloud
    Please make your background less loud…struggle with hearing the shows because the backgrounds are so loud
  • Yay! 5/5

    By rhorho38
    Great app!!!
  • Illinois/Ohio state game 1/5

    By Covering sporting events
    What in the heck were you guys doing when you cut the last 59 seconds off the Illinois men’s basketball game? We all know what the end of February is for NCAA basketball. Very poor management in covering a game even tho we knew what the probable outcome was! Cindy Black Decatur, IL
