  • Not what I paid for

    By jon4111977
    I signed up on the website 2 years ago for no commercial ads so why do I have the ads on my iPhone app, I’m paying for no commercials so why can’t I get what I’m paying for? Other then that I really love this app and don’t know why so many have problems with it but my app runs fine not any problems while I used it anyways.
  • Love it

    By lanhdurbrod
    Survivor for free. What else do I need to say.
  • App shuts down every few minutes

    By ldstemple2007
    So frustrated with this app. Thought the new update would fix the app shutting down every few minutes, but no, still happens. The app shuts off every few minutes and then starts over with a commercial every time you restart it. So tired of watching anything on this app.

  • Fix the App

    By paigeerrss
    You need to fix your app. The audio keeps cutting in and out on the Apple TV. It’s really annoying.
  • Crashes, Constantly!!!

    By scooby_3456
    Crashes every 5 minutes of video play. Thought this would have been fixed, but no, still happening. Why isn’t this being taken care of? That’s all I read now on the reviews. You’d think that someone would be making this right. Especially since we’re paying for this service.
  • Only works on my iPhone, not my iPad!!!!!

    By oHsiN666
    This is starting to become a little annoying. I have reset my iPad, updated it. Uninstalled the app and (attempting) to reinstall it again but it’s not letting me. Does anyone have any advice on why I can’t get it to stream properly on my iPad? I can get it to work jjjjjjjjjjuuuuuuust fine on my iPhone. I really won’t be bothered paying a monthly fee for a service that only works on one of my devices. I would give the app more stars (maybe 1-2 more) if it actually worked properly. All this aggravation to get a show to play isn’t needed. It’s not a good feeling knowing that your doing everything tech support tells you to do and you still come up with issues. Major fail.
  • Where is the sound?

    By Gamer junkie!
    Great shows but where is the sound?
  • New update

    By vic4664
    After new update I get kicked off after 2 minutes everytime.
  • App crashing for several weeks

    By Roseparade8
    I’m done paying for this app, it has been crashing for weeks and the devs just keep writing to update to the newest version and they are never fixed, its ridiculous, the app worked well for months and now is useless. Don’t download until the app is fixed and the app stops crashing during streaming. Update 12/5/19 I cancelled my subscription. It’s unbelievable that CBS had 6 months to try and fix an app that worked once upon a time and are literally unable to create a functioning app. I have never really seen anything like this. I’m not sure if the people working on the app are just the least capable people in the industry or what the deal is. After 6 months and 10+ updates the fact that CBS cannot hire a competent group of people to create a functioning app is beyond me. I don’t understand how this app has maintained good reviews unless they are purchasing them, it has not worked on any iOS devices and allowed paid users to view more than 5 minutes of content without the app crashing in many months. The fact that they even added a new promotion when streaming through safari to download the app seems like several people need to lose their jobs since everyone is aware the app does not work. Just absolutely amazing, this is how CBS falls way behind in the steaming wars.
  • Crashing

    By ZookeeperMurr
    After the latest update the app crashed at least 10+ times during one tv show. I find it fishy that the app never crashed during the commercials. Further after crashing the app jumped my program to the end thus confusing me and revealing the ending. If you aren’t improving your app do not release a new version.
  • I wanna cancel

    By uggggggggggh
    Can’t find the link to cancel and when I got to the app it tells me to go to the app ??? WTH?
  • Review CBS

    By eowie wowie
    CBS App works well, we’re continuing using it, a few Bugs
  • Intermittent

    By oooooooolooooooooooooololloooo
    Have spent a year of calling trying to get things worked out and all I hear is “we’re working on it” the app freezes up you either hear the audio but no visual or nothing and at $6.44 per month ($77.28 per year) I have come to the conclusion that nothing is going to get fixed. When the app works it’s great but for all the times I’ve had to call for tech’re just not worth it 12/04/19 As usual this app froze up and is giving me a fatal’s not my internet connection already had it checked it’s your app that your CSR keeps saying your fixing....and fixing.....and fixing. This sure doesn’t look good for you
  • Show keeps restarting

    By teamjfk
    With this app the show keeps restarting if you pause it. Why does this keep happening
  • All access... nope

    By amyfitz70
    I pay for this channel. Why is it that I don’t get all shows aired?
  • CBS App

    By ChicletCoby
    Love that When I miss an episode of my soaps I can always count on CBS app to catch up, if I realize in enough time that my DVR malfunctioned.

    I love watching cbs app thank you Marks lil darling
  • Infuriating.

    By _electram
    I’m sure this app works well for those with CBS All Access, but for free users the experience is horrible. 1. Lengthier ad breaks than Hulu. 2. Ad breaks freeze, forcing you to exit the program and watch the entire ad break again. 3. No viewing persistence, so the video starts from the beginning every time you have to re-open it when the ads freeze on you. (+1 ad break) 4. No way to adjust the quality of the videos, so it often switches to the lowest possible setting for about 15 seconds without any way of forcing higher resolution. (Experiences may differ depending on internet speed) 5. Not enough content to justify buying an All Access subscription.

    By VGueli
    I have never written a review on here before but I felt that it would be a disservice to everyone if I didn’t write one on this app. I would have given this thing 0 stars if it would have let me but of course you can’t. I’m seriously considering calling my bank for fraudulent activity and having them refund me the money for this app because having to pay for this monstrosity of an app is definitely against the law. I tried this on my Apple TV, my iPhone, my iPad. Just a HORRIBLE app. I feel bad for the TV shows that have to rely on this app for ratings because I genuinely could not spend another minute of my life battling with this app to continue my show. Every 5 seconds the sound goes out. I have to press the 10 second back button to get it to work. Then it will go to a commercial in the middle of one of the most intense scenes and when it comes back it’s 5 minutes ahead of where it left off. Then when I try and rewind, I have to watch the ads again and then when I get back to the part I want to watch, it makes me watch the ads AGAIN. Then still will skip some of the scene again so basically I keep missing key parts of the show- on top of seeing some parts 17 times because I have to keep hitting the rewind button to get sound. I genuinely wish that I could get the time I spent messing around with this app back. For sanity reasons mainly. Hours were wasted and thanks to this app I now probably need therapy. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS.
  • CBS is good, but...

    By kevin's cassie
    The major problem is how they are running their commercials. They are showing some commercials 4 times during a hour program. For example, during Young and the Restless today, they showed a commercial for Taltz 4 times. The same ad for them. It’s. With all of the ads for them, (Cologuard, Xeljantz, Rexulti, more than I can count), you would think they could put one of the others on. Why 4 times for Taltz I will never know. And they are showing the Taltz commercial 4 times for about 2 weeks. It is insane! Please, if you are going to show an ad for something like Taltz, show it ONCE and then bring on some other ad!! Pat
  • Latest update constantly crashes

    By onrope
    It worked fine until the most recent update. It now crashes every ~5-10 minutes while watching any video. Update 10/23: Can I remove the 1 star I gave it? In response to CBS’ claim that the problem was fixed, I tried again with the latest update. IT IS WORSE NOW!!! It doesn’t even play for 5-10 minutes anymore. The app crashes almost as soon as it tries to play any video. What a complete pile of garbage. Why am I paying for this? They should be refunding all customer payments until they fix this or create a new app from scratch. This is useless trash. Update 12/3/19: Now it’s crashing every 2 minutes. What an absolute pile of garbage. No other streaming app suffers from this problem (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). Scrap this software and start again.
  • iPhone

    By jp21q14
    I just switched to iPhone from android. I loved the app but switched to iPhone today and nothing but absolutely problems. I have to reset the app constantly and can barely watch any of my shows. Why?????? Zero problems on android but switch to iPhone and can’t watch 1 show without problems. You do know I’m paying a monthly subscription?????
  • Lagging

    By Btrflykisses
    This app is crap and always lagging or pausing and takes twice as long to watch a show. Doesn’t matter where I am it still happens.
  • Bold and the beautiful

    By Peggy1610
    The only way I can watch is after work and it is free.
  • Works ok on the iPad, but not the iPhone

    By AzeotropeETOH
    As noted in the subject line, I can’t get this app to work properly on the iPhone. I can browse episodes, but when I go to play the episode, I’m returned to the browse function of the app. I’ve signed in properly on the iPhone, but but other than that, I don’t have any alternatives for watching the episodes. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max, and an iPad 7th gen. The phone is running iOS 13.2.3 and the iPad is running iPadOS 13.2.3
  • Worst app ever to watch

    By vladsoccerfun

  • CBS

    Good enjoyable app love it
  • FIX IT

    By Cwhcfi
    Here we are on The Who knows how many updates since this worthless app started crashing and it still crashes. This has been going on for months now. When is this going to be fixed? This is beyond ridiculous. This app is not worth using. If anyone has shows to watch on CBS just go to the website.
  • Tv subscribers can’t get this free

    By HaiGuise
    I can log into multiple other tv network apps using my Comcast credentials but not on this app. They want $5 or $10 a month in addition to already paying for cable. Why? If I’m paying for your channel already I shouldn’t have to pay again on here just to watch on Apple TV. I’ll consider changing my review when you add proper support for cable providers.
  • Terrible App constant freezing

    This app freezes, cuts off, has no sound at times as well as doesn’t show the picture. I’m very disappointed.
  • Love

    By love isnland4728
    I love watching love Island
  • No sound on the tv app on Apple TV

    By Bad 990
    Is anyone reading this sound been cutting off in middle of shows since Monday last week no one is listening ???.
  • Adds take forever to load

    By joel goodrum
    Adds won’t continue until they load with 90% of there full resolution keeping in mind that they render at 1080p. The shows load well but a 2 minute add can take more than 10 minutes to play.
  • Waste of my money

    By mader then mad
    I am very upset at the fact that I wait to watch Rudolph the red nose reindeer on here and it said it could not play on live stream... what the point of have this app if your going to not play everything that comes on... wasted my time and money down loading this app...
  • just no.

    By apoptosisbrown
    i got the app so that i could live watch a program not available in any other format only to find out that they consider this streaming and wont provide it on their own live tv app. grow up.

    By Classy Chasie
    I love being able to enjoy watch my soap opera when I have time!
  • Continue Watching ...

    By CBS Show Watcher
    Please make it so the continuing watching can be edited. I hate seeing shows on there I will not be watching anymore. Also, does not work well on Amazon Fire.
  • Bought the app..

    By Driftwoodie
    Now how do I get it on my TV?!
  • CBS All Access Review

    By cmm472
    I’m on the CBS free trial and plan to keep my subscription to the ad-free plan. It allows me to have live TV access to a local affiliate station so that I can watch sports and news without having to pay for an expensive streaming service with a bunch of filler channels that I would never watch. The library is large with a good back catalog of classic shows and quite a few movies that I want to revisit. I mainly watch on my TV with a Roku but it’s nice to have the ability to watch off line or on my tablet with the iOS app. All in all, this is an affordable option for me. The only thing I would like to see added would be the ability to create a watchlist. Otherwise, I like the setup with the thumbnails instead of a channel grid. I’m looking forward to being a CBS subscriber.
  • Useless

    By wowjlope
    Cant sign in with comcast. Useless
  • Something is seriously wrong with this app

    By amelia mcgovren
    First off I cannot even sign in to the app without it saying “please enter a valid email and password. I’ve trued all my emails and passwords but no. Doesn’t let me sign in. And the sad part is, i was excited to download this. I need my on tv because i never got any time to watch tv without my parents or siblings watching the tv.
  • No sound on Apple TV

    By snelson29
    I have been a paying customer for quite some time but ready to cut the app off completely! Out of the blue I try to stream a show off the app on my Apple TV and there is NO sound shortly after it starts and then freezes. I am unable to continue watching after multiple restarts of my Apple TV. Please own up and stop blaming Apple when everything else works fine except CBS!!

  • Chromecast doesn’t work at all

    By Gman9855
    Live TV says ‘Casting to...’ on the app, and on the tv all it says is Ready to Cast but it never plays anything. Tried turning casting off and on a bunch of times but still no luck.
