Ratings and Reviews
Now you are talking!
Hey thanks CBS
I had so much frustration watching all my favorite half hour comedies with your old set-up. They would cut off during the show 3 or 4 times in a half hour and the week long wait to even watch episodes.
Now you make me feel like a first class citizen with this new app. Those issues have disappeared and I am lovin it-especially thankful you have kept it free for a not so rich first class citizen like me! THANK YOU
Painful to use
This app was horrible. Attempted to watch Oprah interview with Harry and Megan. Took five attempts to get the show to start. Made the mistake of pausing it 15 seconds in. This required a reboot of the phone and a few more tries to get the show started again. Tried to rewind 30 seconds when I was 20 minutes into the show. This required another restart of the app and sitting through a bunch of commercials to get back to where I started. About 40 minutes in, it stopped for no apparent reason, and I had to get out of the app again, restart a few more times, watch a new set of commercials, fast forward. Oops, overshot and need to rewind a few minutes. That’s gonna cost me. Forced watching of more commercials and then it hangs and won’t restart. At that point, I’m out and the app is removed from my phone.
Ads always crash
If CBS insists on an abundance of ads for every show, the very least they could do is insure that they will play without crashing or locking up. Every group of ads locks up, regardless of the internet speed servicing the stream. It requires disconnecting and reconnecting the stream.
At least there is one thing that has been added that eases the frustration a little and that is it finally remembers where the show last crashed. Instead of starting from the very beginning. You still get to watch and re-watch ads. It takes about 2 hours, if lucky, to watch a 1 hour (really about 40 minute, minus ads) show.
