CBS app reviews

  • Unreliable 1/5

    By Concerned patron
    I get about half way through any show and app crashes then won’t let me fast forward back to where I was. Right now I have been trying to watch big brother and so far I get to watch a ton of commercials then app crashes and I get to do it again
  • Bad Review 1/5

    By TrystonN
    Terrible, says they have shows for you too watch when you get on there they are nowhere to be found
  • Ads 2/5

    By Haylees Review
    See yes, I understand that there has to be ads but when I start watching an episode and then exit the app for a while. It doesn’t save where I was at. So I have to fast forward with the line thingy. And when I land on where I was at, It makes me watch an ad but then usually not even 1 minute into the show it gives me more ads which is ridiculous. And another thing is that it doesn’t save where I left off, as I said it the beginning. So can you please figure something out for this.
  • Too many commercials 3/5

    By blow. me
    Let’s do away with some of these repeat commercials
  • Fatal Error - Downloading This App 1/5

    By Popability
    It's always jarring to have some notification pop up on your screen in the middle of something you're doing – interrupting you, startling you, forcing you out of what you were doing to deal with whatever message has frozen your whole system to make itself known. For users of Apple devices, this jolting horror is an everyday occurrence, usually happening multiple times a day. "Space is low", "new iOS ready for you", whatever. It never is something urgent enough to have to deal with right away, but it has to be dealt with right away because it just interrupted you out of the flow and enjoyment of whatever you were doing. That's the price for using any Apple device. But just imagine — instead of saying "Space is low", the message says "FATAL ERROR. You have exceeded the maximum number of video streams." Fatal? In the middle of an app purely designed for entertainment ? Because if you're using the CBS app, that's what you're watching it for. In the middle of am excellent episode of "Bull", right at the most dramatic and touching moments, I was interrupted FOUR TIMES with the "FATAL UPDATE" message, freezing the show and forcing me to back out and simply hit play again. Fatal?? Not so much. Infuriating?? You bet!! And BTW, I was interrupted while writing this review with "Software Update - New iOS ready", freezing me yet again for maybe the 10th time today. CBS and Apple. What a winning combination!!!!
  • Love island 5/5

    By taykayway
    To many commercials but other than that, it’s great
  • Streaming is ridiculous. Update maybe 1/5

    By Coni.Pati
    Idk how many times i have to go into settings, uncheck then recheck location for the app to recognize that I AM SHARING MY LOCATION! So aggravating! And every time i try to stream the live feed thru chromecast it freezes
  • Fatal error 1/5

    By Flowerpowerjs
    I am trying to watch several shows on your app and it keeps kicking me out and saying fatal error. I watch all kinds of apps and never have issues. Please fix it.
  • Bold & the Beautiful 5/5

    By nanawilly4
    I enjoy watching this online when I’m traveling so I won’t get behind. Thanks
  • Young& Restless 5/5

    By Young& Restless
    I have watched a show for about 30 years it is the awesome daytime show that all my friends watch they are the ones who got me hooked on it inmates to run talk about it. Sometimes they will change a character in the show and at first you don’t like it because you’re used to the first one but then the second one you know kind of starts to grow on you. I really hope that they keep Victor ,Nikki, Adam ,Nicolas ,Jack, Billy& Phyllis on the show. The show would not be worth watching if any of them were to be kicked off the show for a long period of time I like seeing all of them during the week I know that Lucas is in Milan but I hope they bring him back soon hopefully he’s just gone for vacation because I really love watching a show when I can’t watch it when I’m working I can watch it on the CBS AP.
  • Daytime Shows 5/5

    By Bobbye lou

  • I’ve had some problems 2/5

    By universe_talk
    I had to watch 15 ads just to get to the time stamp I had left off on. I think you should remember the time stamp I left off on so this won’t happen. I’m just glad it’s free.

  • GREAT APP!! 5/5

    By Tooblessedtobestressed
    I’m able to enjoy my soaps on a daily basis. Thank you!
  • Commercial bugs 2/5

    By sbartiko
    It is ridiculous to me that even when you REWIND an episode you have to sit through commercials again. Constant commercials. Plus the app frequently bugs and will repeat commercials twice after you only adjusted the time on the episode once. I spend 2 hours watching a 45 minute episode just because of how often I need to fight with this app and wait through endless commercials.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Tnsplaytime
    I love CBS and the app is great

    By Baby RuthMC

    By zyx77777777

  • Y&R 4/5

    By Pkingro

Until I lost my hubby. Thank you of all the cast of the this soap is terrific that i can still watched day after day. Month, years to come especially Joshua Morrah. Love it🤟🏾🤟🏾👄🙏❤️🇺🇸🍷🌈
  • No pop-out feature 3/5

    By liquidontherox
    I wish CBS would get with other media apps and have a pop-out feature so we can multi-task while viewing programming.

    By Gballsohard
    Can’t pickup a show where you left off so every time you leave you have to find your place again and watch 7 minutes of ads

    It’s a good app, but I don’t like when the adds/commercials pops up like 5 or 6 of them, but except for that it a cool app
  • It’s actually free 5/5

    By alicfros
    I downloaded this hoping to be able to catch up on some big brother episodes while away from home and I was surprised to see that I didint even need to sign up for anything I could just watch whatever I wanted for free! Great app, would recommend.
  • Fatal Error 1/5

    By Misslebra
    I keep getting fatal error when trying to watch live. Why is that ? I’ve sighed up, connected to my cable provider Xfinity, I can watched shows already aired, like 48 hrs, no problem, but the App is failing to allow me to watch live. After had this problem with any other App. How can I watch live, can anyone help me out here ???!!!
  • The worst. 1/5

    By usetolikecbs
    I used to use cbs all access all the time, then the change and nothing works.
  • CBS is the best 5/5

    By LN w.
    It works well and it’s easy to navigate, super fun to watch shows that have only aired on CBS but didn’t get to watch because I don’t have a TV at home.
  • Great APP 5/5

    By SIMBA3654
    Thank you CBS
  • False Advertising 1/5

    By q%p943201p%q
    App allows you to watch morning news “live” once, then locks the program. Very misleading advertising. Don’t recommend this app at all.
  • Awful awful awful 1/5

    By Giggoc
    I have never experienced a worse performing app. Worthless. Freezes and buffering and just disappearing. Do not bother.
  • Can’t see episodes of my Favorite shows anymore 1/5

    By hebrew54
    Cbs shows FbI, FBI most wanted, NCIS Los Angeles, swatt, and so many others can’t see past 5/25/2021😡
  • AppleTV and Xfinity is beyond broken 1/5

    By noReviewsTodayEver
    It’s interesting that every CBS app update breaks this capability where the App just crashes on launch
