Inconsistent across devices 3/5
I got the app to watch baseball finals—I have YouTube tv and TBS is included on my TV, but it’s not listed in the providers for the phone app so I can’t watch away from my tv 😡
Horrible for sports 1/5
Hangs up and rewinds. Has commercials in the middle of the game. If you try to do anything else on your device, it restarts the app and more ads. Pauses constantly.

You'd think a network that makes millions would have an app that doesn't take 5 min to load up. Just staring at a TBS logo. Also, the casting thing is annoying imo
Worst app of all time for streaming 1/5
This app is SO AWFUL I only use it to watch the post season baseball. And at that, it only crashes 40-50 times a game. Rewinds itself back minutes at times. Just shuts off goes black. Closes itself. It’s like whoever screwed up the Obamacare website when they got fired all started the TBS app. So far as I write this it’s stopped 4 times. The game is in The first inning and I’ve had to restart it over 10 times tonight. Piece of garbage. As big as TBS is you would think the app would be solid. And it isn’t new. This has been like this for at least two years. Oh. And if you want full content on your smart tv app, you have to download it to your phone and cast. So even the smart TV is garbage. I’ve made zero reviews on streaming apps. That’s how BAD this app is that I took time to even write anything. It’s complete garbage. Beyond garbage. If I made an app like this I would be fired for incompetence. TBS, GET IT TOGETHER. It’s 2020. People use apps and expect they work for the most part. This is a joke.
UPDATE: about 15 minutes after I posted, no joke, it’s crashed at LEAST another 20 times and done all kinds of weird stuff rewinding. I can’t believe a major network’s app is so horrible. It’s so frustrating. I’ve had it on 4 devices over the years and does exactly the same thing. How anyone can rate this anything but a 1 surprises me. iPhone 8S plus. 6S Plus. iPad Max. And iPhone 11. All the same problems. Garbage. Just complete garbage.

Worst app by a major American company I have ever used
Too many commercials 1/5
Have to watch an add every time you switch screens. Even if you sign in through your cable provider. Lamest network app available.
Horrible App 1/5
By jt baseball
Partner with another TV provider. Ruining baseball playoffs
The network 4/5
App won't even load unless you give permissions to send notifications. BS!!! 1/5
App won't even load unless you give permissions to send notifications. BS!!!
Extra commercials and glitchy 1/5
Glitches and stops playing, makes you watch an extra commercial every time you open or change shows.
You cannot watch and look at your phone at the same time while streaming to Apple TV. Disappointed
Worst streaming app ever! 1/5
Trying to watch the ALCS has been a nightmare. You have ads that last longer than these innings. The tiniest notification and an ad appears in the middle of the game interrupting it and the inning ends after the ad finishes sometimes. The game goes back in time to an inning I've already seen and then I have to force quit the app to get it at present time. But not before waiting for (surprise) another ad to pass before the game comes back on. It freezes a lot and then I'm back to square one. I pray that MLB never has to show another playoff series on TBS so I'll never have to deal with this nightmare of a streaming app.
TBS gets the A+ rating for me. Easy to logon and watch. And it’s convenient for me to watch it on on my iPad. Thank you for being so generous.
Constant “Application Error” 1/5
The app never works properly. Every time I try to watch something on it I get “Application Error - Oops... there was a problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.” And that’s as far as it gets. Terrible app.
Terrible selection of movies and tv. Plus they run 3 minute ads almost every 5 minutes, it’s ridiculous. This is a bad app
App is broken 1/5
Will not load at work! Will not load at home! Just freezes! Deleted and downloaded 5 times! Fix it please
This is the worst app I have ever used. I’m trying to watch the rays Astros game and it keeps freezing and sending me back several at bats.
Good Quality Image 4/5
A little bit of a pain to sign in, sometimes multiple required. Needs better cookies but the content is handy.
Crashes constantly on iPad Pro 1/5
Trying to watch MLB playoffs and app crashes constantly - particularly during commercial breaks. It either hangs up and can catch up again or sometimes it even goes back in time (like to the beginning of the game).
Also, it’s 2020, apps shouldn’t pause when a notification comes in.
Forces an ad any time focus switches 1/5
This app shows a 15 second ad both at the start of watching as well and any time you shift away from the app, however brief. Even checking the notification window causes this. Totally unacceptable.
Trying to watch the Astros.. app freezes, crashes, or rewinds itself every 5-10 minutes. 10/10 do not recommend. Hope the mlb funds a new partner next year.
Won’t recognize smart tv 1/5
App won’t recognize nor cast to smart tv. Works like every 30 tries. Crazy annoying.
Freezes and drops connection 3/5
I usually have to relaunch this app multiple times while watching a movie.
By Strokin 2002
As soon as the streaming pauses you know it’s about to go backwards two minutes. Commercials right in the middle of games. Constantly have to restart. If you leave the app for any amount of time, it has to reconnect and show commercials all over again.
When it goes to commercial break the show never comes back on
Terrible streaming inconsistencies 1/5
I stream most of the baseball games, so I have used MLB, Fox Sports, YouTube and ESPN depending on the game with next to no issues. Due to playoff streaming rights TBS unfortunately grabbed the American League series. I can’t get through an inning in about watched 7 games over several different WiFis (my internet isn't the issue) without the stream stalling out through TBS app and it will restart the stream several minutes backwards and make me watch 120+ seconds of ads. Also, anytime I change the screen brightness or sound on iOS device or check other scores on another app it forces ads to be watched again with no pause button. Terrible app experience, lagging behind all other apps without in game stats or box scores or play-by-play.
Better at watching ads than tv 1/5
By this one not taken
Every time you switch apps or even pull down the control center to change brightness/volume I get sent to another unskipable ad. Does a much better job at loading and watching ads than watching anything else.
Annoying, plays ads when adjusting volume or brightness 1/5
Omg, why does the app play ads after adjusting volume or brightness? ANNOYING
Doesn’t work 😫 1/5
I tried signing into my tv provider but it keeps popping up saying that I don’t have a subscription, but in reality I do! As soon as I try to sign in it immediately signs me out and won’t let me continue.
A very bad look. 1/5
There are zero excuses for forcing the viewer to have to sit through an ad upon signing in while the game is in progress.
Instead of replying with a generic and insincere apology, how about classing up your act, and maybe tame your compulsion to have to desperately grab every single quarter that’s not glued to the floor?
We’re going to see your ads every commercial break. They’re all over the field. Take it down a notch and just let us get to the game while it’s in progress.
Seriously, it’s a horribly trashy look.
Worst App 1/5
This is the worst app I’ve ever used. Never had I had a streaming app go to a black screen especially during the playoffs at that. Worst app ever.
Worst app for streaming sports 1/5
I never leave reviews but I have too for this app. You can watch the 4th inning of a game and then the commercial break starts at the end of the inning. You wait through that and suddenly you are watching the 4th inning all over again.
You constantly have to close out the app to even remotely stream a live game because it will without hesitation rewind you a whole inning.
I never have problems with fox, espn, cbs etc but TBS app is horrible.
This app is awful. Restarts all the time, even if you only adjust volume.
Crappiest app ever 1/5
By Pat my weenie
There’s gotta be a crappiest app somewhere and this is it. I was able to log onto my computer and write this review before this crap app could even start up.
To be more specific, when I launch the application on my firestick all I see is a yellow to pink gradient background with the TBS logo centered on the screen, whilst a small arrow rotates in a circular motion in the middle of the screen. This continues for maybe 2 to 3 minutes while waiting for the application to start up, so I can immediately watch my first of many commercials.
Not reliable 3/5
When it works it’s great. Unfotantly it locks up, crashes and restarts itself way too often.
Constantly Has to Restart :-(! 1/5
Every notification that pops up shut the app down and has to reload and forces you to watch new commercial. GARBAGE. Glitchy!
App repeatedly crashes. But not before the advertisement is done playing and TBD collects that money. Weird I have to watch an ad before I can watch a channel I already pay for.
Commercials When I Check Notifications?! 1/5
I understand the need for advertising, but why is it necessary to show an ad every time I reduce my brightness or check my notifications? It’s absolutely ridiculous.
Garbage. They’ve got junior high interns writing this app. 1/5
Buggy. Freezes and quits constantly.
15 second ad CONTINUOUSLY 1/5
This is nonsense.
I adjust brightness. Ad.
Home button. Ad.
ATT/WarnerMedia - stop the goddamn ads you BLACK SJW. Jesus F cHirst.
Greed destroys this app 1/5
I first downloaded this app to watch 2020 MLB playoffs. I experienced problems upon launch. I was prompted to allow notifications and declined. Then the app hung on the splash screen. I thought, this is crazy... if everyone else hd this problem then the app would have an even loower rating. So I restarted my iPhone - same thing. Delete and redownload the app - same thing. Then I thought, let’s see what happens if I accept notifications and what do you know? It launched past the splash screen and to the EULA or terms of service or whatever. I finally get to watch the game on my phone, but before it will play the live stream, I have to sit through a 15 second ad. Every time. If I leave the app to respond to a text? Ad. If I swipe down to check my notifications? Ad. That’s so greedy it’s crazy. They still show the TV ads and sometimes they show different ads while TV ads are playing, just trying to squeeze out every bit of revenue they can. Greedy. And lastly, there is no PiP support, yet. Fix this stuff. The ads issue is worth 2 stars and the other issues are 1 star each. Good luck.
Pretty stable but the ad every time you open the app 2/5
The image quality is great for streaming playoff baseball games unlike the MLB app.
However it is a terrible experience that you have to watch a 15 second ad no mater what when you decide to stream. Even if you toggle back and forth from one app and back to the TBS app, 15 seconds gone.
By booboo bones
Watching the baseball playoff between the Yankees and Tampa Bay and every few moments TBS app goes to advertisements non-stop. They don’t wait for the innings to even end. Ridiculous
Yankees game keep pausing and those Dam ads grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Ads constantly 1/5
By christian h34
I was trying to watch the a’s game but there was constant ads even during the commercials I don’t know why the preview counted even during the ads I had ten minutes of previews and I only got to watch about a minute of the game because of the ads
Hope you don’t like sports 1/5
By not ryen russillo
But if you skip on this app, and maybe skip on cable all together.
Ad crazy 1/5
By Elton John99999
The Ads continue for no rhyme or reason. No volume control on stream player.
One of the worst streaming Apps around 1/5
I’ve been trying to watch the MLB palyoffs on this app and I cannot start to explain how frustrating it is.
WiFi & Mobile data both have the same issues. The app lags and then stops working and is just an utter failure.
I guess TBS is just waiting to go under based on their lack of effort with this app.
Save yourself some time and a headache and stream elsewhere.
Log in failure 1/5
Every time I attempt to log in with my TV provider the app just freezes up. I have to close out the app then when I try to reopen the app it freezes on the home page. The app needs fixed and updated as to this point it is not reliable.
