This whole service is an embarrassment. We can’t finish a full episode without the audio glitching out and making the show unwatchable. It’s been this way for over a year, it happened the same way for Star Trek discovery seasons 1 and 2. This isn’t a bug, this is flat out neglect. One would think we had figured out how to make streaming services work by now, but places like CBS want you to pay MORE so you can suffer through an UNWATCHABLE rendition of your favorite shows. It’s insulting, and I hope someone else here is driven to pirate these shows because the legal channels are just not functional.
Don’t bother, you’ll be really frustrated and waste lots of your time. Other reviews are accurate.
It’s unfortunate that you pay for high quality program access only for it to be lowest quality service . The fact that several other reviews include the constant freezing during a show and nothing has been done to date is horrible . The fact that you can not watch a show in unison better yet I still have to literally close out the application completely in between episodes . This is a paid service and its ironic how the advertising never has an issue . I will not be renewing my subscription .
This app is so annoying! CBS has a lot of good content but this year I’ve used the app less and less. You can’t turn auto-play off, so it will run until your phone dies. And you can’t customize your own watch list, so it plays things you don’t want to watch and then adds those to “Shows You Watch.” Madame Secretary is boring and The Neighborhood is stupid and SealTeam is pretentious, but they’re on my playlist forever because I didn’t stop it from playing in time. I really HATE this app. If CBS didn’t have a few shows that I want to watch I would delete it. Also it says 91MB but for some reason it takes up 709MB on my phone. I don’t understand how when there’s no custom settings and I don’t have much on my watch list.
App stops frequently. Very frustrating to watch a program. I don’t have this much trouble trying to get through one show on NBC or MSNBC like I do this one.
Thank you so much CBS for this app. I am able to watch my favorite Big Bang Theory without any issues. It works perfect to my needs!
Renewing my review from years ago: It sometimes doesn't remember where you were. If you seek to a position, you get hammered with 2.5 min ads. If you are lucky, you might do it in one shot. If not, you might have to watch 12 min of pure ads, half of which are the same and you JUST watched all of those before the glitchy thing broke. Sometimes it will switch videos while you are watching and cut off the ending. Since that resets you back to the beginning, you get to spend 12 min watching ads. Sometimes the slider bar does not work. It will still prompt ads, but will not change the position of the video. If I can watch anything they have on Amazon, Netflix or xfinity, I will because those are so much better. App is often broken, especially when a new update is available.
I watch NBC most often, but now have to pay monthly for the shows I like. I already pay my television provider now we have to pay to see the shows we missed on regular programming times. The app freezes or drops, to get the program back, then I have to figure out where the show was.
Every time I start a program and cast to Apple TV, it crashes and I have to restart. Can be very finicky with Apple TV.
Why does this app make it so hard to change to commercial free?!?! Why can't we make changes by going into our account? Why??
