Worth the $5

I got sick and tired of watching the same ads play over and over, only to have the app crash. Same thing happened on their website from time to time. Finally decided to pony up the monthly membership fee. Glad I did. Happy to know my $5 a month saves me watching those darn ads, and my money is going to CBC. In a weird way, I feels like member supported PBS. :)

Awesome App!

I can’t believe it took so long for me to find this app! Finally I can see releases of shows when they come out, not when Netflix chooses to carry them!!

STOP repeating the adverts!!!!!!!

I love catching up on Coronation Street on this app and it always works fine but really - I don't need to see the same advert twice or three times in the same commercial break!!!!! Please stop this!!!! And maybe try to have the same volume level for the to show and the adverts to save turning it down and then up again.
