Horrible App 1/5
Shen you first log on, you have to wait for a long TBS commercial before you watch. When you watch a live tv show like a sporting event, everytike it accidentally logs off, you have to log in again and wait for the SAME commercial to play. If it keeps logging off, this gets really annoying, especially during a live game. Totally annoying.
Worthless but few other options 1/5
App is a complete joke. Logs you out randomly, then the login button doesn’t work or is insanely slow to respond. Buffers whenever it feels like, but almost guaranteed to fail during important moments (I.e. postseason baseball).
If you want to watch sports, find another option. The only consistency in this app is it’s ability to let down its viewer.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Too Many Commercials 1/5
I have a subscription and every time I tap the screen or even look at a message from notifications, TBS sees it as a money grab and gives me a 30 second ad in the middle of whatever I’m watching. So annoying.
Hawribble, just Hawribble 1/5
By Ruprect Gargule
Shuts down randomly, usually at the best plays if any game.
Shame on TBS.
Fox Sports can stream in UHD 4K and you can’t even get your app to stay open, let alone keep a decent stream.
Terrible and Glitchy 1/5
Only got the app to watch baseball apps. It will stop playing, then force you to watch a commercial every time it stop working. I’ve missed an entire inning multiple times, and now, it is just straight up not working. TBS is terrible at streaming. I recommend this app to no one.
It speaks for itself
Trash, failed multiple times, should not have let that broadcast playoffs. 1/5
Worst streaming app 1/5
TBS app is so unreliable and terrible they should not be allowed to host postseason sports events.
DONT DOWNLOAD 1/5
Terrible app everyone you leave the app let alone accidentally swipe up or down. You have to watch the same ad over and over. Don’t download it’s a waist of time
Caught in loandepot ad loop 1/5
By KB game player
I just want to watch the game!
Will play for literally 15 seconds then start a commercial and freeze up!
I hate you TBS 1/5
App makes me watch a commercial EVERY time I touch anything notifications, in progress settings etc. If I get a text and swipe away the notification I have to watch a commercial. If I adjust the brightness or volume of the TBS program I’m watching, it stops the show/game and makes me watch a commercial. HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRRRRRRIBLE!!!!!!!! Just die TBS app!! Die!!!
By f.a.c.k. really
App crashes 40-50 times
Ad fest 1/5
By Kramer kramer
Absolute garbage app. Downloaded it just so I could watch the NLCS while away from home and if you minimize it for any reason, even to adjust the screen brightness, it'll resume with an ad even if the game is in play. Truly pathetic.
App keeps freezing 1/5
I certainly don’t appreciate you having to allow us to sign in using our provider just so that you can keep giving us ads which keeps freezing the app. Also, having to keep close the app and refresh the app keeps popping up the ads every time which also freezes the app constantly!
Eye rolling 1/5
loaded this app to try to watch the mlb post season. it worked one day with glitches and the next day it tells me I’m not subscribed. constant looping.
at first I was willing to pay for a temporary usage, but after all this wasted time, I would never consider it again.
App bombards you with ads. If you receive a notification and swipe it away, it’ll interrupt your session and feed you an ad. Same ad over and over.
Full of glitches 1/5
Absolutely awful. So many bugs and glitches with live tv
Stop asking for ratings
Live feature does not work because ads freeze the app. Unusable.
Ridiculous requirement 1/5
The fact that the app requires you to watch an advertisement every time you navigate away from it is the dumbest thing I’ve ever experienced. Once the playoffs are over I’ll be deleting the App.
Commercials on top of more commercials 1/5
THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!
This apps blows…..
App freezes on AppleTV 1/5
By Patrick Webster
I have been trying to watch postseason baseball games via AppleTV, but every time AppleTV uses the TBS app to stream the game the app freezes up. If you are having the same problem I have found that you can use HULU to stream the games. If you do use HULU, use the lower priced version that includes commercials because the commercial free level will still broadcast commercials for sports programs.
This is the same horrible platform as the TNT app. Constant crashes and forced ads that repeat. Crash, watch ad, watch one minute of game, ad goes back again, crash, restart, here’s the same ad again, hang, hey the game’s back on except it’s over. You missed the walkoff hit because you were watching the same stupid ad TBS forced you to watch after every app crash
Ads ads ads 1/5
What a piece of work - they are gaming ads by force serving an ad every time I get a message, minimize screen, quickly swap out to another app w/o closing the TBS app. Garbage.
Terrible Stream 2/5
Always glitchy, always buffering
Too many ads 1/5
Swipe half way down to check the time?…Ad. Pull up view of other apps?…..Ad. Try to turn up the brightness?….Ad. Try Picture in Picture?….Ad. Turn your phone sideways of exit full screen?….Ad. Come on, TBS. You can’t do that to us in the middle of a MLB playoff game!
I can’t even watch a game without an ad every 30 seconds. I get a text message, boom another ad. I adjust the brightness on my phone, oop you paused the show, ad. Ad. Ad. I swear, if MLB playoffs were on any other channel I’d delete this asap.
Tbs app 1/5
Too bad you can’t give zero stars. Terrible.
Commercial shown during an active at bat in ALCS 1/5
Terrible app for watching sports. Just downloade the app to watch baseball on my phone while watching football on my TV. The app started showing commercials during tue baseball game which interrupted active at bats, missing broadcasting several pitches.
Update apple tv 2/5
By apple tv mad camper
Your app is horrible on Apple TV. Fix it.
Relentlessly backwards 1/5
By Game I downloaded yesterday
I have never been asked to sign in as many times as this app requests, nor I have I been congratulated (“Congrats!” [sic] to be specific) as many times as this app has. I would feel much better, though, if I actually received the programming, rather than commercial after commercial, and then an endless little spinning asterisk than never allows me to connect.
Streaming is OK. Casting doesn’t work at all 2/5
I’ve never used the app to stream until this year’s postseason baseball(2021). The streaming works if you can ever get authenticated with your tv provider. The casting to a TV on the other hand, is horrible. I’ve tried on two Samsung Smart TVs. One is a few years older and the other is brand new. Neither work. The app says it’s connected and the TV does absolutely nothing but show the same screen with instructions. I have a 12 Pro Max and Dish Network if that matters.
Update: tried my in-laws Xfinity login and it works with the Xfinity login, but not the Dish Network login.
Come on TBS.. fix your ads during the game 2/5
Honestly this is the worst app to stream a sport game. I get that you have sponsors and contracts that lead to commercials and ads. Every time the stupid app freezes and then starts playing again I have to watch a 3o second ad? Bottom of the ninth Freddie Freeman hit the game-winning hit and I miss it because a 30 sec ad decided to start playing. I am extremely thankful to be able to watch my Xfinity subscription via the TBS app for the MLB playoffs. But you guys got a fix that ad s*it. If my cell phone gets knocked from my lap to the ground I have to watch a 3o sec ad - anytime something interrupts the stream.. whether it’s my fault or freezes on your end.. I have to watch a 30 second ad I’ve already watched it, why do I have to watch is 77 times during one baseball game, it’s a joke.
Can’t cast to my HDTV.
Popup commercials for live TV 3/5
Starts a commercial every time you load in… to live TV with it’s own commercials. Have to refresh? Enjoy that same commercial again. Poor connection? Another commercial. Oh.. it didn’t load all the way, why don’t you watch another commercial. When it works and it’s going it’s fine. Whoever added extra commercials to live TV is sadistic.
Ok but the app adds are intrusive 3/5
I understand an add when I began to stream live tv but, when ever I touch my phone it forces an add. Receive a notification add! Video buffers add! Drop my phone and touch the screen add! Chill out, if you want to put adds in the app that’s fine but, make them during a live broadcast add or just the first time I start streaming; Not every time the screen refreshes!
Undoubtably The Worst App 1/5
The app crashes regularly and then forces mandatory commercial breaks during live action every time you turn the app back on. I can’t tell you how many meaningful plays I’ve missed in sports games due to this nonsense. I truly cringe every time I see a game I want to watch will be on TBS. Another little fun detail is that the app will even crash during its mandatory commercials so you get to rewatch those again and again before actually getting to see what you turned on the worthless app for in the first place.
Waste of time 1/5
If I have cable or a provider why would I use an app to watch anything. It is a completely waste of time to have an app that asks for a provider. It is a waste of time.
The adds freeze every time
This App is… 1/5
Kinda Sad 2/5
Decent app because of the content, but when you do even the most minor of things (get a notification, leave the app, etc.) you have to watch an ad again. I know this used to be a problem but we fixed it in like 2015?? Like geez yall, we can fly billionaires to space but I have to watch an ad every time I check my battery charge?
The sign in screen is blank and never loads. If I can’t sign in the app is useless. Thanks for nothing.
Who thought it was a good idea to have the tv application be forced to be cast by the phone. Such a terrible design. Glitches so often can’t always even get the stream to work.
Even the phone app has problems. You get out of the app for any amount of time and you immediately get greeted with an ad while watching live tv.
Multi tasking 1/5
By Dave from Tiffin
Can’t multi task with can’t have to be on the app to show what’s going on
Terrible app 1/5
Worst app I’ve ever used. Crash crash crash crash.........
Why is this how I stream to my TV 1/5
Works fine on my iPad or iPhone. Horrendous experience trying to get it to stream to my tv. Basically will not work for more than 5 minutes at a time. Not sure why TBS doesn’t want me to watch their programming on the big screen.
