CBS app reviews

  • Still missing providers 1/5

    By Big NNNNN
    Why are there not enough cable tv providers for me to log-in with mine? I pay for CBS on my cable bill so why can’t I use the app. And don’t respond with the generic “Please try buying Paramount+” or “Try contacting our troubleshooting department” because that is zero help and how’s that you don’t truly care about providing you customers with the ability to watch your app. Ridiculous that I pay for something I’m unable to view.
  • Worst sports app for access 1/5

    By CH in NJ
    I’m lucky if I can sign into the App through my TV provider each morning to watch Boomer & Gio. I usually have a 1 in 5 shot. At least always give the sign in option.
  • Commercials 2/5

    By TravelinEvelyn
    Prefer shorter commercials
  • Locks up to often! 1/5

    By Eat More Beans!
    Maybe should consult with Hulu or Roku!
  • What a Stupid App 1/5

    By JanitC
    Dearest CBS: If y’all want us to watch your stuff, you gotta make it so the app connection-verification-left-eyeball-scan-leave-my-first-born-double-secret-re-verification thing actually works. You owe me 30 minutes of lost time. Ridiculous.
  • Young Sheldon 1/5

    By coopertorpres.
    Only one season !? Chat are you serious right now bro.
  • Love CBS APP 5/5

    By Carols h
    I love CBS and I have always. I love the app too cause I can watch shows while others are on our TV set watching something. Keep up the good work.
  • Bold 5/5

    By Wheekay
    Thanks for letting me watch. I don’t have anyway I’d recording the show. Just thankful I am able to watch on your app.
  • Ads 1/5

    By 62537285161
    I got 6 ads about every 5 minutes of the show and each add was 30 seconds long
  • FOX did not switch off Cowboy’s game…..CBS. 1/5

    By zdk$56
    So happy FOX showed Dallas game on Thanksgiving. CBS would have prevented watching America’s teams for 4 quarters. Will keep posting this type of message until CBS apologizes to Cowboy fans everywhere.
  • Chromecast 1/5

    By Natushabi
    Still no Chromecast???????????????
  • Love how soon you can watch a show! 5/5

    By rainyroast
    Many online view opportunities make you wait forever to see a previous episode. Or they make you pay. CBS rocks!
  • Please answer back I have a question 4/5

    By crum180
    Do y’all have heartland season 15 on this app?
  • Why cut off shows for 60 minutes? 1/5

    By Vetchona
    Stop interrupting the Equalizer and East New York because you run out of time for 60 minutes or football.Seems like you do it for the two of the shows that the main casts are black.You know when you’re gonna have football or whatever.It’s a slick way to get folks to have to use your app to find out the ending.It’s not right!
  • App never works on Roku 2/5

    By Megdhshsh
    I love the shows on CBS, but I’m always getting error messages when I try to watch from my Roku. I’ve tried deleting and reloading the app and nothing has worked. It works fine on my iPhone though. 5 stars for me if this issue is resolved.
  • Impossible to cast! 2/5

    By Charmzinc
    Every show we’ve tried to cast to our tv views just fine UNTIL we get to the commercial breaks. Then it freezes & spends endlessly. We reboot multiple times & always have to restart in the commercial block, where it inevitably freezes again. We are then forced to watch ANOTHER half block of commercials again before it freezes. What the heck CBS???!!! Get it together!!
  • NCIS 5/5

    By Countryyankee2002
    I love all the NCIS shows and watch them all the time.
  • Skipping during chromecast for months 1/5

    By Ryan760
    For months now this app skips horribly and makes everything unwatchable while casting. Seriously you let it go this long? Pathetic dev team
  • Always looking for money 1/5

    By originalscoobasteve
    Bait and switch. Site leads consumer to believe content is free when majority of content requires subscriptions to Paramount or high priced cable. Cut the cord with CBS…yeah right.
  • CBS App 5/5

    By TeLaE
    EXCELLENT! Great quality app and easiest way to watch all my CBS shows!
  • The wait!!! 3/5

    By Caramel_cutup
    This app gives one the leisure of watching the Soaps in your own time BUT I think it’d be better if it was able to be seen on the app at its regular air time and without commercials. Being it’s only a total of 18 minutes of actual air time to begin with.
  • Commercials 3/5

    By heather quiring
    Too many commercials!
  • Bold and thevBeautiful 5/5

    By yruknotletting mepnick
    I LOVE THE APP. I get to watch the show anytime I want and it’s FREE! I HAD WATCH DAY AFTER THIS SHOW WAS OVER ALL THE YEARS IT WAS ON!! I MISS IT BUT, I CAN NOT AFFORD ANYTHING LIKE PEACOCK. I read so many bad reviews from people that are paying for it and don’t get to watch it sometimes!! NOW BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL IS THE ONLY SOAP I WATCH!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
  • CBS 5/5

    By unabletogetanickname
    Have watched the daytime flicks since I was a teenager. A lot of years later still enjoy the programming. Monday and Thursday nights are jam packed with my favorites. Keep it up.
  • The Best entertainment app ever ❤️ 5/5

    By afs7000
    Love the movies
  • More free 5/5

    By nayeutsteys
    You’re company wants us to watch ads for free episodes and then charge for we can see for free. You’re websites lie. I’m filing a class action lawsuit
  • Annoying 4/5

    By Alyssa from Iowa
    I love the CBS app, however, I hate that I have to re-login with my TV provider EVERY time I use the app. This is super annoying and seems like a simple bug fix.
  • Kept crashing 3/5

    By gladjot
    Kept crashing 3/4 of the way through episode had to keep restarting and re watching commercials. Will probably delete app too aggravating
  • CBS App 5/5

    By msRbraml
    The CBS App is easy to use. I’ve started watching more network shows now that I can catch up on my iPad.
  • Young and the Restless 5/5

    By marheine74
    I have many appointments around the 11:00 hour. So it is great to be able to watch on my own time. Just wish I could see the Saturdays episode.
  • Extreme ads 2/5

    By Jef7456
    4-6 ads at least 5x in a 21 minute show. It’s very irritating.

  • Catching up!! 5/5

    By Nicknacpatti
    Love watching all the episodes I missed! Great way to catch up on my favorite TV shows!
  • The worst 1/5

    By Romanous116
    I have cbs, cbs sports, and subscribe to paramount + but can’t watch the Georgia/TN game.
  • Wish I could give 0 stars 1/5

    By jbx34
    Worst streaming app I have. Doesn’t keep your place and you have to watch your show from beginning to end without interruption otherwise you get kicked out and have to watch a ton of ads just to get back to where you were. This app does not compete with its competitors, just sells out to the ad companies and overrun with bugs/glitches. The only reason I gave it one star is because you can’t leave a review without a star
  • Sooner? 5/5

    By i❤️Prime
    I love being able to watch BlueBloods wherever and whenever I can, but it sure would be nicer to be able to watch it in real time, or withinin 24 hours!
  • Good app 5/5

    By Bcjxjvt
    Thx I really enjoy watching shows
  • I love it! But need to work on something… 4/5

    Too many ads! Like 6 ads for one show.
  • App review CBS is a good app, because there’s awesome audio description 3/5

    By audio description
  • Should be -1 1/5

    By pea jay
    Worst app ever! It plays the first part of the show then you watch lots of commercials, then it buffers at a commercial and you have to stop casting, start the app again….more commercials, more buffering. I’ve never seen the last part of a show yet! DO NOT BOTHER!
  • Fire Country 5/5

    By kjackson017
    It’s a great show

    By NJacuguy
    [UPDATE 10/22: you can install but literally can’t open the app, it just closes so you can’t even get to the menu. On both my TCL and Roku+. The ONLY a app that has consistently done so on Roku. LOL!] 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 to your tv provider on the app EVERY DAY or you couldn’t watch live tv. Didn’t do that obviously, stopped watching entirely. Just gave it a try again and it literally won’t install - when you get 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. Oh, and on iPhone - the only place where it usually works half the time - the live feed becomes inaccessible b/c I get a “Concurrent Streams Fatal Error” message, apparently if just one person else on the account even on the cable box is watching you can’t watch either, something that NEVER happens on NBC/ABC haha. SUCH A COMPLETE S-SHOW OF AN APP. You guys lost a viewer for life. Well, I might try again in a year or 2. Worst functional streaming app, and that’s saying A LOT
  • C B S 5/5

    By tianabay71
    Much easier to use then ABC. Glad I signed up.
  • Great 5/5

    By boomtee
    Good picture and volume
  • Error when trying to log in 1/5

    By Qquasar
    Invalid HTTP request? No idea but very frustrating. Please help
  • Seems to be Good 5/5

    By J. Overton
    So far so good. I haven’t seen any signs of hidden fees.
  • The Yugo of TV apps! 1/5

    By mary queen of everything
    This is the worst TV app ever! It shuts down, the commercials freeze, you cannot stop and start an episode, or sometimes even stop and restart an episode. I would love to watch Todd, or Ghosts, or even Bull, but that isn’t happening. Figure it out, CBS!
