  • No commercials, great TV

    By Goodbye to dups
    Enjoyed the FBI, then Star Trek Discovery. Now the Twilight Zone and The Good Fight. How about a semi annual deal?
  • Charges you even if you cancel

    By Nan10998
    I signed up for a 1-week “free” trial and cancelled it 4 days in, but CBS still charged me $5.99 for 1 month 2 days after I cancelled. This is shady business practice and they will be reported.
  • Signed up and got NO TRIAL and BILLED ME

    By Wowwwwwwwwwww
    Even after I “canceled” my nonexistent subscription that I was paying for too FOREVER TO ACTUALLY STOP BILLING ME
  • How do I cancel free access free trial

    By not happy with free trial ap
    How do I cancel the 7 day free access trial, very deceiving that I had to pay for it when in the past I could get the CBS ap for free and this time it forced me to buy the trial in order to get on, very sad!!
  • Seriously!!

    By Lcon1212
    Everytime log on to my device and try to start a episode the app has a fatal error. I have to uninstall then reinstall and log back in if I change locations or turn off my device. This needs a major debug.
  • No Game

    By poolboy65
    Somehow I was not able to see NCAA Basketball championship game.
  • OMG!! How Frustrating!!!

    By ljayzee
    This app is really not worth paying for. Why does every network think that they need a streaming service, so that you can PAY to watch shows that they felt were not worthy of a regular time slot? It doesn’t make sense or “cents”. But the frustrating almost secret process to cancel is just RIDICULOUS. Are you kidding me???
  • Freezes constantly -Don't pay for this!

    By fantasyfootballgal
    I bought this to watch the NCAA National Title game, and it plays for 2-4 seconds and then freezes for about 30. Especially irritating because I paid for the all access subscription. Other networks don't charge you to watch live tv on their apps as long as you input your cable information. They all work fine. This I had to pay for and it doesn't even work? Terrible. Do NOT buy the all access if you want to watch live tv.
  • Just paid for a subscription and already doesn’t work

    By 
    I just paid for a new subscription because I want to watch The Twilight Zone. It doesn’t work. I keep getting a fatal error message. Seriously? The most advertised and anticipated show show on the app & it won’t work??? Canceling my subscription tonight. Unreal.
  • Horrible Battery Usage, OK Service

    By joshhepworth
    Haven’t opened the app in days, used 30% of my battery in the background doing who knows what. I turned off Background Activity permissions in Why did it start doing something in the background after not being used for a week? Couldn’t be a good reason.
  • Why would anyone choose this App

    By Raina726
    Pay for commercials? Clunky interface where u have to search for the search option?
  • Conceded

    By carpedivum
    Everyone else allows us to use our normal cable logins to view all content. I have direct tv and it’s not listed. Otherwise I ‘have’ to have Hulu live or pay separately? I think it’s bogus to do that.
  • Can you give it ZERO stars ??

    By TJ_Moose
    I wanted to actually give this review ZERO STARS as the latest update fails to launch on this device. Can you please get back to me when you figure out what is wrong? -TJ
  • A solid app

    By Billy445
    I’m mostly have the app for the Star Trek offerings but if you are a fan of any cbs show the app is solid. The live tv works well and the price is fair especially since you can cancel and come back as you please.
  • Star Trek Discovery

    By mike02ki
    It’s a week done show, love watching with no commercials!!!
  • No TV provider login option

    By Three Fiddy Fie
    There isn’t an option to login with my TV provider
  • App is full of glitches

    By Steve9919
    After paying for this, you’d think it would actually work. Instead, you can be watching shows and all of a sudden it resets to the beginning or to the last set of commercials. Of course those play fine. You can’t rewind. The rewind button doesn’t work. If you’re going to charge for this, fix the app!!!
  • Needs basic playback controls

    By samster820
    For a paid app, I was disappointed that the app doesn’t have a “skip forward 15s” button (strangely, it has “skip backward 15s”). Also, it frequently doesn’t remember what I was last watching and offer to resume playing in the “Continue Watching” area.
  • So worth it

    By Btkenworthy
    I recently ditched cable and picked up All Access. I still get my morning news, wheel of fortune, and sports with the multiple channels and CBS Sports HQ. My advice, pay for the commercial free. While binge watching Star Trek, the commercials were quite annoying, especially if I fell asleep, lost my spot, and tried to find where I left off. I ended up doing the upgrade and it is so worth it.
  • Love the CBS app!

    By eyec07
    Watching my favorite shows & segments from intriguing interviews makes the CBS a must-have app. Try it... you’ll love it!
  • Not very good

    By Koolman107
    Every time I watch any show if I skip at all it goes back to the beginning of the show.
  • Blocks everything

    By MKMEJtoDE
    Standard tv app that tells you it can stream and then blocks everything out in your market. Didn’t work in 5 different major tv markets for me. Oh but they made sure to get my credit card first in case I liked it so much that I wanted to auto renew.
  • Destined for failure

    By jamesmc70
    Whose dumb idea was it to require a subscription to CBS? No way it is worth $10a month for what is offered. A year later-still an absolute failure. Star Trek was a disaster. Haha-nice response. This service is still crap.
  • Oooooo

    By jhghlg
  • It. Doesn’t. Work.

    By TheePintsAtLunchtime
    Congratulations, brogrammers, your recent update has blown up the app on two different platforms. NOTHING WORKS ANYMORE. Do you get PAID for this?
  • Can’t use away from home

    By Meritguw
    Couldn’t sign in to my TV provider while out of town because my TV provider “isn’t supported in this area.” No kidding!? That’s the point of having a mobile app.
  • Bad app

    By Insane3
    The app doesn’t even open for me, it force quits every time i even try....
  • Top notch

    By Norpie
    Love the access to my favorite programs even when I’m away from my tv.
  • Live Tv

    By No Pause?
    I guess I was wrong to assume that if you got CBS All Access that you would be able to pause a Live TV show like you could with Hulu considering it was a app and not playing through my TV. Was very disappointed to figure that out AFTER I had paid. Also after a show has already been broadcasted, if you pay for all access then you should be able to watch it directly after a the show or even record the content. Neither of these I could or were allowed to do. So before you buy this, just realize you are paying for the same thing you can get for free on any other device. Won’t be renewing.
  • Why can’t watch full shows without subscribe

    By Emmalouwho21
    I can’t watch my show of god friended me from the 1st episode without subscribing, what can I do?
  • Unnecessary Charging Fee

    By Deciouz
    Why is it free on mobile device but a fee for tv streaming?? As a customer who already has CBS on my cable network I should be able to use the app at no cost, perhaps charge customers who do not have your services on their networks. Also, i noticed DirecTV is not on your cable provider list 🤔 why not have a CBS All Access for a fee and the regular CBS for free to current customers considering we already have CBS on our cable networks
  • Lucky dog

    By sissy_lester
    I love that show I learned so much about animals and I love animals and want to treat them with love and respect. This man offers this knowledge I hope this show does not go off the air.
  • Not worth the money-Pray you never need customer service

    By Nanaia
    After an update when set to auto play this app started playing random series and skipping all over instead of staying in the same series and just playing one episode after another. After struggling with customer service for two weeks I turned off auto renew. All customer service does is copy and paste form typed responses asking the same questions over and over again and never deals with the issue. They don’t include the email thread in their responses and don’t appear to share any information with each other when they escalate the issue. Nothing gets resolved during first contact and every time you correspond you have to re-explain every single detail. It’s not worth the money! ADDENDUM: received a copy & paste response by the app developer asking me to call them again. If I’m not happy with the first nine times why would I want to ruin my day by dealing with them again? My last three correspondences were them prattling on about how they can’t find my subscription and never dealing with the issue I contacted them about. Duh?! When I saw how crappy their app and customer service was I canceled the subscription. I’m not about to pay for crap service. That’s foolish.
  • Excellent app

    By In the zone lily
    I’m from an older generation. When I was a kid I used to daydream about having a TV I could take around with me to watch my favorite shows. Now that it’s possible I’m grateful I’m still young enough to enjoy these great advancements in science. This app is great. I love the extras you get like past episodes you might have missed. Fully recommend this app.
  • Doesn’t work consistently

    By chips5ahoy
    I’ve been trying to watch the finale episode of a television series for over an hour and the stream cuts out every 5 minutes on a 75 mbps internet connection. I’ve checked with FIOS and the problem is definitely the app.
  • User experience... 10 Seconds...

    By CHUD73
    A 30 second fast forward makes sense. It gets a person through the introductions and "previously on..." at the beginning of episodes. However, there are no good ways to quickly play back parts that one wants repeated, e.g. Klingons talking. A 10 second rewind, like what a green unnamed major streaming app has been using for some time, would be helpful. It immediately made a more user friendly experience. Since it's not easy to scrub through an episode with how the current interface is set up, a shorter rewind would be much appreciated. It would be less time spent messing with the app when we want the content the app provides on our televisions. We don't want to mess around in an app. Give us your content.
  • No way to remove watched/unwanted shows...

    By mmbrownie
    CRAPPY service. Pay money for this POORLY run service? They run a preview in a show I’m watching & that show becomes part of my “continue watching” with NO way to remove it. Their “support” gives a number to call- sorry, CBS, that’s not how apps on Roku are supposed to work. Customers should be able to add/eliminate with a click or two, not with a call.
  • App still glitches after a year?!

    By Crash in IA
    Only got it for ST:Discovery. When I first open it to view new episodes, it plays season recap, gets about a minute into the show, then freezes. Then I have to get out of the app, takes several tries to start again, usually I have to turn Wi-Fi off & use cellular only before the episode will play again. Not very good for something I pay for.
  • Offline support would help

    By Lamonte_cristo
    Would be great if I could download and watch offline without an internet connection
  • This app is horrible, intentionally

    By Garnum
    I got this a few days ago to watch Star Trek Discovery. I am used to Netflix and Amazon for streaming. They appear to be the class of streaming. On this app, first the commercials are repetitive and boring. Second, if I stop watching, it saves my spot one to two commercial breaks before I started watching. So I have to try to remember where I was and then scan ahead and watch commercials I already suffered through. Then every so often, maybe 45 min to an hour in, the sound suddenly degrades and I have to quit the app. When I go back into the app to watch Disco, it again puts me 1-2 commercial breaks earlier and I have to go through the whole mess again. The tech is not that hard. This has to be intentional. This has happened on three different devices. I will be canceling when my week is up. The show is great but I just can’t do this.
  • Very limited

    By missuspenguin
    I signed up just to be able to watch the new Twilight Zone episodes. Dish is my network provider and this app doesn’t shed a light as of to why I can’t play the show streaming from my tv. The help menu is beyond useless. One would think a more thoughtful app would come out of the budget of such a huge communications company, so no, only one star.
  • Twilight zone “Terror”

    By Leffern1948
    Great story, great all around.
  • Adverts

    By Mjkielec2
    The best part of paying $6 a month is when you still get to watch garbage adverts.
  • Ask to many times to play

    By Bigmao10
    It would be better if you weren’t asked twice to watch a show
  • the fact I have to wait for the rest of the twilight zone is horse****

    By Tumblr is a badly managed site
    Look. There’s no reason for CBS all access to exist. However, I did sign up for a free trial to check out the new twilight Zone. Come to find out they are holding back the episodes for a WEEKLY release date for the first season of the twilight zone. I’m definitely going to cancel my free trial and use a friend’s (if i can find anyone who is actually willing to shell out the bucks.) Jordan Peele’s the twilight zone is pretty good and i want to watch more, if only the people in charge of cbs had one teenage intern to tell them that nobody wants to wait for a streaming service.
  • No refund for non use!

    By reibenmann
    I discovered that I was being billed after over 6 months of non-use, so attempted to cancel it. Because there are so many ways to subscribe, it was impossible for me to determine which provider so I contacted CBS directly. What a nightmare! I was continually asked why I wanted to cancel, but told them I wasn’t interested in staying, so please refund me. I was informed that they do not refund because they charge for access, not use! What a rip-off... They have burned this customer to never return to them...
  • 👎🏽

    By LAFster
    App is find. CBS is going to the dogs. New show in a series then two reruns. I’m not subscribing for 1 or 2 shows per month.
  • Definitely Worthwhile!

    By Sir signal or
    I love this app. I can actually watch T.V. shows without a television subscription. It’s versatile and generous as far as what you can watch. I feel I have gotten a really good deal here! 😀😀😀
  • App not working

    By socalilike
    The app immediately closes after I open it.
