Paramount+ App 5/5
By Ro N Day
I just downloaded the app on my iPhone a couple of days ago, and it’s just as easy to use as it is in my big TV. Picture is wonderful, and I am very happy!
Subtitles are timed awfully and interface clunky 3/5
A lot of shows and movies are in good quality to watch, but a lot of the time the UI is clunky to interact with because of the fact that a lot of the media playback buttons such as pause, rewind, and skip are just not sensitive enough. The interface does not appreciate multiple presses at a time when you want to use the rewind 10 secs button, and the dot itself to move backwards or forwards in playback is very clunky in which it does not consistently take you to where you want to go in a specific time in a movie or episode. Shows such as Spongebob has their subtitles timed awfully, where subtitles are being played to a second before the actual dialogue is being said. Canceling my subscription could be a possibility due to these problems.
Paramount Plus app 3/5
The programming is great BUT too often, it takes a while for the video to start. I have had to go back to the App Store to see if an update to the app has occurred.
Also, when you are off the air, it would be nice to know why. Basically this happens when you are adding a lot of new programming or you advertise about big improvements. Then the world of Paramount Plus stops.
It would be good to know that it is not the viewers fault so that we can stop trying to solve the problem, which is yours. Please consider your customers.
Oh, my husband wanted me to say that, when he watches the CBS News, it often freezes. Is their something that he is doing wrong? He is an IT Person and has checked out the problem from his side of the computer,
Well, keep improving. Your programming is great. We watch your shows more than those from other companies. Congrats. Now go fix things!😉ire
Can’t stream my show anymore 1/5
By Celia Rusch
Uh??? All of the sudden I can’t stream my show? Why Isnt there a paramount + app for my smart tv.. so confused
It’s great when it works! 3/5
I want to love this app. And when it works, I do! The content is great. I do wish I could set up a watch list under a child profile. My tv app only shows lists as an option for a regular profile. Unfortunately that means the ads & suggested shows are not all child friendly.
Annoying but tolerable because at least it’s working…Which is about half the time. The app either doesn’t load or the show constantly appears to be buffering. All my other apps work fine, streaming an entire show or movie with no issues. The only way to fix it is to back out & then restart my firestick. Even that’s not a guarantee.
The ONLY reason I continue to pay $10/mo is because my kid loves Paw Patrol.
Actually kind of mad at all the people who gave this such high marks - super misleading & I’m wondering if they were bogus, robot reviews. This is only the third review I have ever written on anything, that’s how frustrated I am with the poor quality of this service.
No new shows 2/5
I bought this to see the Daily Show. There are more weeks that there are no shows than new shows. Not worth the money.
It doesn’t work 1/5
Apple TV, iOS, iPadOS - none will work. Either doesn’t open or returns fatal errors. Up until a couple of days ago it was fine. I -can- open on the web on my laptop, but that’s it. There is programming I enjoy, but it’s really hard work to get to it.
Doesn’t play well with poor internet. 2/5
Great programming. Really doesn’t play well with poor internet, so if you’re in the boonies, find bootlegs or something.
It does have good content. 3/5
I have had cbs all access for about 8 months. It’s ok. I assumed however it would have all the shows in entirety. But it only has the latest season on some or first couple seasons and the last one. I really would like to be able to watch the whole series. If I don’t want to start watching a show on season 4(or current season) I have to buy the earlier seasons/episodes on a different streaming service. I thought that’s what paying for this one was for.
Also the option to start episode from beginning would be nice.
It’s OK 2/5
By Juan Wayne
The app is slow & there are times it just freezes & I have to turn off the tv & turn it back on. If it wasn’t so cheap I would cancel it.
Nothing works! 1/5
Since I had this app I have not been able to use it. All the way back to the start of Big Brother 22. I got the app for the live feeds. And it never did work. So I let it go until recently. I have a plus subscription until 2022. I click on what the app offers and I get a grayed out screen and I can’t get any further than that. Also there is no way to stream it to my TV. I emailed support an hour ago. I haven’t received a response back. How does this app get 5 stars?
Live TV not working 5/5
Update: Live view works now
Episodes will not load on WiFi. Have to use cellular to watch. Now the episodes of some shows will not load, even on cellular. When they do load, it gives “fatal error” message. Tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. Still broken. Please fix. Update: The problem was resolved for a while, but now the live view (local CBS station) just gives a black screen, even after I upgraded to 9.99/ month premium. Please fix soon. Update 2: Live view still does not work after latest update. I tried the app on other devices, same problem.
Wish it worked better 2/5
App on tv constantly freezing/buffering. Do not have this issue with Hulu or prime. Home Screen doesn’t load on tv app. Doesn’t track what I’ve watched.
Wish it worked better for the price we are paying.
Buyer beware 1/5
Paid for an annual premium subscription and now things that worked don’t. Can’t stream to chromecast. Apparently peacock has figured out how to do that.
Episodes fail to stream on the LG app on my TV. The words “not ready for prime time” are an apt description. Slow interface on the LG app, the introduction of commercials before episodes that I can’t skip. Did I mention “premium service”?
Bait and switch. Will not pay for this crap next year.
Can’t use it while connected to a VPN. The search functionality will return no results if you type a title in verbatim.
I like a lot of their content but I’m gonna cancel. Using this app is pointless.
No support. 2/5
I like the content on Paramount +. I like it so much that I decided to pay a bit extra to upgrade so I wouldn’t have any ads. I did this and paid the new monthly price. The app says I’m not upgraded. When I try to upgrade in the app, it tells me that I’m already upgraded. ??? I still have ads. I’ve emailed them 3 times with no response. Disappointed.
Paramount fix this! 3/5
My paramount isn’t working and whenever I click on a show it wont load! Please fix it.
I love how it’s cheaper then the other apps and lots of stuff to choose from to watch!
App is total trash! They should be ashamed. 1/5
By G Piper
Constantly glitchig, freezing and crashing. Uninstalling and reinstalling app does not help. Zero phone customer support. I'm cancelling my subscription and will never pay for this crap app again. If I want to watch CBS I'll just go on the free CBS app from now on.
Not sure worth paying for- does not work correctly! 1/5
Won’t cast with chromecast anymore. It’s been 2 weeks. Based on other comments it looks like nothing is being fixed or done about this issue. I will be canceling my subscription now.
Premium Annual Subscription 1/5
Terrible app and terrible customer service. Purchased the annual premium subscription through iTunes. Worked fine until 2 weeks ago. Now I log in and says I am not subscribed. Also fails to restore my ACTIVE iTunes subscription. All I get from customer service is “it has been escalated” whatever that means. As well as no time frame whatsoever. Absolutely horrible experience dealing with this app and company. Update: still not a single word from the company
App crash 1/5
App keeps crashing on my iphone. Very disappointed as of now. Love everything about Paramount Plus, but it just keeps crashing. I reset my wifi & modem & still it keeps crashing.
Good selection but the UI is lacking. 4/5
The selection of shows and movies is surprising and refreshing. There are a lot to choose from and the Paramount originals are well made. As far as selection, it is worth it.
A few things the app could improve on:
Playback is not great. If you close the app it will take a while to reload the program / movie, and sometimes the app will glitch and you have to do a soft reset of the device you’re using. Super weird. Sometimes the program or movie will spend a lot of time buffering or catching up, which I’ve never had a problem with in another app.
There is no information on the actors or directors / writers / producers. I always found it handy to have a list of the people who worked on the movie / show.
When you add something to your watch list, the app kicks you back to the top of the main screen. Sometimes you get on a roll with adding something, then searching for similar programs.
No search functionality for genres. There are selection columns, but no selection to view movies by genre in a vertical scroll format.
There is so way to change the quality of picture.
Overall, the selection is good but the playback can be buggy. The other things are nit picky for the most part. The commercials with the cheaper plan are tolerable and I think it’s 30 seconds of ads for each break.
Worst app to date 1/5
This app crashes all the time. I am unable to watch anything. I am going to cancel this app. It is totally worthless. Even with a strong WiFi connection and 4 bars it does not work. Waste of money. I have had enough of paying for this useless app. Also, I paid for this app thinking current shows would be current on this app. It’s is a fraudulent app. Garbage.
Mini iPad Retina is Now Locked Out! 1/5
I was able to use an earlier version of Paramount+, but now it repeated asked for an update to continue, then (Even after literally 20 unsuccessful attempts.) it stays in a loop of asking if I want to download an older compatible version. Please fix it or effoff.
Love content fix the crashes and glitches 3/5
I love the content but can’t you fix the glitches. It’s the most frustrating and glitchy streaming app I use.....and I have many. To forward or rewind is crazy. I have to restart it frequently
AppleTv App 2/5
The AppleTv version of the app is terribly slow!
Does not offer free trial. Signed up for what I thought was a free trial to see what they have and I was charged.
Useless with Chromecast 1/5
App used to be great but all of a sudden, it stopped working with Chromecast. It connects and says it’s ready to cast, but when you actually go to play something, it exits out of the title menu and does nothing. You can try again and again, reboot every system and app, but to no avail. Pointless to pay for
Not working 1/5
I paid for premium service but it won’t let me access or watch and shows or movies
My favorite app ever to be made since we saw Paw patrol the movie.
Can’t watch on tv, only on my phone and iPad 1/5
By z is idiots
I subscribed to this vs cable/satellite service. Works great as long as I’m on my iPhone or iPad. All the app does on my tv is freeze and buffer. Why offer the service if it won’t work on Android tv. I’m paying for a service I can’t use at home. Very disappointed.
Terrible app 1/5
This app is way behind in terms of technology. Content (if you can access) is good but lots of glitches. Has anyone been able to see Madam X yet?
Taiwan Porter 5/5
By Taiwan Porter
It’s wonderful I get to see all these great show. Appreciate it all
Next episode, previous episode? 1/5
This app seems to be missing very basic functionality. One example is the ability to move easily to the next episode when one completes, or to go back to a previous episode without doing a search for the show each time. The continue watching section doesn’t have any options to easily to the full episode list, so again, you must search for the show again in order to select different episodes and seasons.
Good but I was baited 4/5
Let me explain I wanted to watch the new venom and it said I could stream on here if I signed up anyways I do and there’s no venom :/ but at least I get to watch workaholics 😎
I had to start watching by various Star Trek series here since they left Netflix in favor of Paramount+. This app has a lot of good series so I’ll give it credit for that. However, the app is glitchy and not nearly as user friendly as Netflix. I find it frustrating to navigate. I wish all the Star Treks had stayed where they were.
Keeping up 5/5
By D B !
It’s great being able to keep up with all of my shows on my phone when I miss them at home
Doesn’t even play videos 2/5
Cant play a single movie due to no internet connection, tho computer works fine??????
App will no longer send to Chromecast 1/5
I have reported the issue multiple times and customer support was not helpful and did not resolve the issue. The app will no longer cast any actual content to chromecast, only the blue Paramount screen. Every other app works correctly with my Chromecast except for this one, and I have no interest in watching anything on my iPad only. Very disappointed and if it is not resolved very shortly I will be canceling my subscription.
Has awesome shows but the app on Apple, Vizio, and Xbox all buffer and freeze with error code “-“. Making it impossible to watch a single episode of anything or a movie without having to reset the app or log out and log back in multiple times. So 5stars for the shows and movies less than 1 star for the app and servers housing those shows.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE 1/5
I can not believe that a company with BILLIONS in revenue can make such a crap app. How hard is it to allow you to download (which you “can”) and then watch those downloads offline? Well I’ve spent 3 days trying to get it to work with no luck. I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, updated, splashed with holy water and NOTHING. It shows that i have my episodes downloaded when online, but when i go offline it shows i have nothing in my downloads. I’m leaving for a trip tomorrow and I’m ONLY paying for this stupid app to be able to watch my shows while traveling…so sick of bad tech…
This app is really good but… 3/5
There is a lot of things that needs to be fixed I just updated it and nothing changed when I put on subtitles there always ahead and sometimes it won’t go to the next episode after one is finished also when I’m watching it on my tv it’ll completely just freeze and act up for no reason I love all the shows that’s on here and I can watch older movies but these little problems makes me not wanna use it
Day 3 of not working correctly 1/5
Will I get a prorated month when you figure out how to connect to chrome cast again? If nothing changes this will be my last month. It is a waste if you cannot use it to watch on your tv. Update: day 4 every time I try to cast to my tv the app doesn’t work. I have gotten form letter responses from developers. Update day 5 of casting not working. My other update was erased. Only form letter from developers. Update: it has been over a week. I received a non form letter response that instructed me to do troubleshooting. Followed all directions AND downloaded the update and still does not work with my chrome cast. I want a refund.
Almost Perfect 4/5
For a streaming service, it does as intended. Has great shows, live TV is fine and it hits nostalgia with a lot of older shows/movies.
The one thing I wish could be done, is for there to be a lock on Adult profiles/users. Parental controls are fine, but having to input the code every time to watch something is a bit redundant when a “lock” for a specific profile would be easier.
Won’t work with a av connection 1/5
Terrible app Wont let you use AV connection to plug iPhone to tv to watch on tv
Param… plus.. is not that bad ✌️ 3/5
It’s good but lacks a lot of content, but that’s normal… they just started. 🙃
Happy to have a ton soccer and thankful for Charlie Davies’ insight on Weston McKennie
