Ratings and Reviews
I am so happy that you guys have an app!
I am so happy that you guys have an app, I have a DIRECTV and was surprised to find out that I lost my what no Local CBS, station, and now I can watch all of my favorite daytime, prime time, and late-night shows. But I just have one question, do you you have to subscribe to watch live TV? Because I also miss being able to watch my local movies, and sounds like judge Judy meant to say, that I really miss being able to watch my local news, and chills like judge Judy during the day. So my suggestion is, well you’re trying to reach out and deal with, I forgot Who the kill providers were, I think it’s just DIRECTV. But well you’re trying to reach out and deal with DIRECTV, could you maybe read able to let us watch the CBS live stream for free? Because I don’t think if I signed in with my current provider, I am wrong let me review my local CBS station because it is no longer in the line up. Please respond as soon as you can. And tell me what you think of my suggestion, keep up the great work. What is the app and all of your showings, really looking forward to the fall lineup coming up in September.

Hi, there! Thanks so much for the feedback! We love hearing from our customers!
This is ridiculous. When the app works it works fine. But it freezes a lot. Then the app needs to be closed to restart. The download should be a true download. Some episodes simply stop and there is not resetting that position. The only thing to do is remove the download and the re-download. Now if I had consistent WiFi, then why would I need to download? It is like the developers have never traveled nor used the other online apps like Prime or Netflix or ITunes. I paid for it. I should be able to download the episode, with error correction, see the episode and then delete it. Simple. But not on this app.
When I am on a plane or train and wi-if is spotty, that should not even matter because the episodes are downloaded! And I am traveling overseas now and can’t watch because I am out of the country???? Ridiculous. I downloaded the episodes in the USA, I should be able to watch them overseas. Same as the other apps.
CBS, if you want me to pay full price then make Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery on iTunes and I will pay it. But if you want me to use the CBS app and pay you directly at least give me an app that works and works for travel. Not every user is a 20 year old sitting on their mom’s couch. Some of us have jobs, money, choices and are aware of other apps and how this CBS app should function.

The author should be ashamed
This app is pretty sad and CBS should be embarrassed. I can understand why they want to charge for vintage CBS programming but why should you have to pay to watch free programming from last month. Apparently the advertisers feel the same way as you can see they are few and far between. Every 10 minutes you get to see the same ads over again, some shows have only three different commercials which they show 2 and 3 times during one break. It’s no wonder they want to charge you to watch free tv, the advertising isn’t covering the cost.
But besides that the app is flawed. It doesn’t keep track of the shows you watch, maybe you have to pay for that too. And it doesn’t have the ability to rewind 10 seconds back or forward during a show. Other video apps have this ability so the technology clearly exists. You can use the slider to move fore and aft, but that is not the least bit precise. Often it will bring you to a commercial break which you have to sit thru again. Which is hardly necessary as I’m sure you have the commercial memorized buy this time.
So needless to say I rarely use this app and perhaps if others follow suit then maybe they will make an effort to improve the situation.
