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. :)
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.
CBC lets you watch almost all of your favourite shows but there is a glitch where it goes back to the last ad spot you watched. Other then that I love this app I’m adding on this as I think the glitch is patched up:)
Developer Response ,
Apologies for the inconvenience this has been causing. Version 9.24 of the addresses the issue you’ve been encountering where previously viewed segments of a show were playing after an ad break has ended.
If you're still experiencing issues after updating the app, or if you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us at email@example.com, or from the Help link in the CBC Gem app.
