CBS app reviews

  • New user w/ a question 4/5

    By TheWookiee!
    Hello! Just added the app and am looking forward to using it. Question: Is there a way to mark shows as “favorites” or to create a watchlist? If there is, I can’t find it. Thanks! 😊
  • Pat 4/5

    By Expressly inpatient
    I enjoy being able to watch at my convenience without having cable and DVR. I can even put up with all the commercials. I do wish some of the shows CBS would make available longer than 2 weeks - it seems to depend on the popularity of the show - new ones are out there longer - others not so.
  • Good and bad 3/5

    By frankwaynesmith2005
    Good-it has tons of shows at your fingertips. Bad-so many commercials and it should come free with cable service without commercials.
  • What’s the point 1/5

    By aaa hb
    Spend time downloading app and can’t even watch live tv.
  • Commercial s 1/5

    By joe bill bob jane

  • CBS 5/5

    By RM Charlie
    I wanted to watch an episode of Clarice that I missed. This app was incredibly easy to use. I’ve watched two episodes this way. It’s free; it’s wonderful.
  • Old show 5/5

    By Dreamy68
    I’ve been looking for an old show I believe it was a cbs show in the 90’s called Early Edition. If cbs can pick it up m, I’d be happy to sign up for paramount plus.
  • GREAT 5/5

    By Little Bit Mary
    Great to watch shows I missed. Can watch whenever wherever. LOVE IT
  • Inconsistent performance. 1/5

    By LlamaQ
    Presently, this app won’t even launch. On the occasion that it does launch, it stalls or loads programming very slowly. And then one day I’ll try it and voila, it works great. The next time, we’re back to trying to get it to launch. It could be great, please fix.
  • Best app 5/5

    By Airport74
    Great app for keeping up with all your favorite CBS shows; which whenever or wherever you want. Also now I don’t have to have costly cable tv
  • My favorite channel 5/5

    By Tractorguy1974
    CBS & cbs All Access are my favorite channels. I love that my shows update daily and no matter where I go I can stream them on my phone and if I get interrupted before I am finished with an episode it picks right up where I left off. Even if it’s weeks later.
  • Review of CBS app 5/5

    By Lonewolfe90
    Love this app. because if I have appointments during the day or have to go somewhere at night and miss Amy of my programs can go back and watch them. This is awesome since I have no way to tape them in my home. Thanks CBS app
  • Glad it’s back 5/5

    By CRWBK
    I’m so glad to have my CBS app back. When I can’t watch my recorded shows when traveling I have this app. I also love the five free episodes. Keep up the good work.
  • Babygirl 5/5

    By Been here 72
    Very realistic actor and the show prevails the importance of family and relationships
  • Young and the Restless 5/5

    By Martha1911
    Love it but need to take OUT the commercial to long to wait
  • Horrible, doesn’t work with Chromecast 1/5

    By catesong
    What’s the point of having the ability to cast this onto your TV if the stream quality is horrible? The stream is smooth and clean on the phone but when casted onto the TV it is SUPER choppy and and pauses every second. It’s a terrible experience. Don’t understand how people are using this app.
  • The bold and the beautiful 5/5

    By Shiba goddess
    I have been a fan scent I been a teenager and it’s still my favorite soaps. 😊 lame and Brooke are the stars of the show and fought forget Quinn 🤣
  • An unwatchable amount of Ads 1/5

    By GraceMeGuide
    I uninstalled. None of their shows are worth the ridiculous amount of ads they put into this app.
  • Fatal error 2/5

    By trg93oh
    Since the most recent update when trying to watch a show I get a fatal error then it shuts the show off. I have to close out of the app completely then open it back up. Sometimes I can finish the show and sometimes I have to close it out a few times before I can finish. I used to enjoy the app, but now not so much.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By =emuJuice=
    App installs, starts, then when I pick virtually anything it wants me to sign in with my TV provider. Ok, except it gives a webpage to go type a code into but NO CODE. All my other “RC” apps have no problem connecting through Verizon but I’ve had nothing but trouble with cbs every time I’ve tried
  • Can’t claim to be a leader in 2021 1/5

    By Kurt Smithson
    Conveniently the app has “an error that’s occurred” whenever you want to watch a major televised sport such as NCAA basketball like the final 4. You pay for this with your cable service but can’t seem to stream anything thru the app until absolutely nothing is worth watching. Absolute disappointment and trash.
  • I love it!!!! 5/5

    By Juicy prince
    This is amazing app that I can watch for trips and at home of cbs network, my favorite tv show is bold and the beautiful, is amazing and incredible tv show to watched on cbs
  • Young and restless 3/5

  • Daytime 5/5

    By verngunyun

  • All Of Your Daytime Shows 4/5

    By TheUnknownZombieNinja
    I always enjoy the CBS App When I Miss My Favorite Programs I Know I Could Look Up The App Thank You Keep Up The Good Work
  • Bold an Beautiful 5/5

    By AnnaMae46
    I used to be able to record my soap operas on TV. Now that I switched from cable, I am able to pull them up on the phone when I’m ready to watch them.
  • Paramount/CBS app lacking 1/5

    By agg mom
    Since the change to Paramount the app has worked less the okay. I pay for no commercials, and prefer to download my show and watch later. Since the paramount app came out most of the time I can’t download my shows at all, then when I can I can’t watch it. It just sits on a black screen. I’ve tried this with wifi and using the data on my phone. If a “new” version is going to roll out they need to make sure the basics work before putting it out there. Very disappointed!
  • Thank you, CBS! 5/5

    By Daniel21189
    Now, I can watch KKTV 11 (Colorado Springs-Pueblo at home and on the go!
  • Too many commercials 3/5

    By Vudoo child
    For the internet, which is supposed to be quick, a 4/4 commercial string is way to much. The cry when youtube interrupts our viewing time with 1.
  • Worst app ever 1/5

    By must download this game
    Do not download this app it takes so to to get videos to play
  • Tangerines 5/5

    By Maria's Uphone 6s
    One of the best is CBS. It has all the shows I love.
  • Way better than Paramount+ 5/5

    By Silverwalk
    CBS app is more accessible with better ready programs than the new Paramount+ and it’s hype. Very happy I found this app.
  • I can’t get past the ads 2/5

    By EFG555
    This app freezes up in the middle of an ad every single time. I’ve yet to be able to watch a full show. I’m sitting right by my router. Version 8 still has major issues.
  • NCS New Orlean 2/5

    By croads
    I enjoyed the app, but way too many ads!
  • Useless. Crashes during first commercial break. 1/5

    By Dry_heat
    Totally worthless app. Crashes during commercial break. Tried to watch a program three times and finally gave up. Fix it.
  • Really good app 5/5

    By great app neat stuff
    With good internet service/WiFi can watch any fav show I want to.
  • Zero stars if it was possible 1/5

    By Katjl
    Stupid app keeps kicking me while streaming a show stating I have too many videos streaming. Doesn’t make sense cuz I’m the only one watching and no one is streaming except me. Got kicked out like 5 times. Guess I’m not watching anymore Cbs shows.
  • CBS app 5/5

    By usghjo
    It’s an awesome app that allows me to keep up with my favorite shows!
  • Love it!! 5/5

    By PubLady1
    I love the CBS app, as it has some cool shows I like to watch if I miss them on TV! Thanks!!!
  • This is the worst app. 1/5

    By brianna-mars
    The commercials come on constantly, and that is definitely constantly! It is extremely difficult to enjoy the content! Skip this one if you wish to avoid wasting your precious time.
  • Can’t put video in full screen on iPad. 1/5

    By Daddy (Main)
    It only will stream video in a small window with the live TV guide under it taking up an equal amount of real estate on the iPad screen. The full screen button doesn’t do anything. Same exact issue on Paramount+.
  • CBS 5/5

    By Ginty51
    Simply a great app.
  • Unusable 1/5

    By JoJo Bogle
    App is unwatchable/ unusable. Freezes constantly. Other network apps work fine. Internet and connections are good.
  • Thank you from far away 5/5

    By concidential frustrated hubby
    We live in S. Korea, military, and often times we feel disconnected from what is happening at home. With your app and a VPN, we are able to watch tv from our home. Thank you for your service! No pun intended 😂 please don’t change a thing, maybe an optional paid option to remove ads but keep both options.
  • Comment 5/5

    By Shaunte1
    Soaps, Y&R, B&B, have always been a part of my life and will continue to be so. The series, such as Magnum PI, Bulls, All Rise, Equalizer and NCIS are all favorites of mine also. Thank you CBS for affording me the opportunity to get away from the everyday life, right in my home and immerse myself into these dramas.
  • UVP error 1/5

    By bstro219
