CBS for Negative User Reviews

Does not work on CanadaThis review isn’t so much for the app but for the fact that CBS didn’t communicate properly that we (at least Canadians) need to switch to their “Paramount +” app in order to log in and use CBS All Access. One day without warning I couldn’t log into the app, through their support channel I was able to determine I needed to use the Paramount + app instead.Version: 8.0.10

Doesn’t work in CanadaJust like the title says....Version: 8.0.18

It doesn’t workWhat a waste . Doesn’t work in Canada 😡.Version: 8.0.14

Don’t even waste your time trying to screen share from your phone to your tvThinking about watching a show you missed the day before so you try streaming it to your tv? Well most likely it’s not gonna work and the cbs will bug out on you. Every week my family and I love staying caught up with the show Survivor but have busy schedules so we usually have to wait a day or two after to watch it so we make food get all ready and we will get about 15 minutes in and the ads will freeze and it’s basically impossible to make it change or go back so then we have to restart the episode and when we try to skip forward it will just do the same thing and freeze, if we get lucky the ads will just play through if we watch through it, another thing we have the risk of is the episode throwing us back 10 minutes from where we were in the episode and then making us rewatch the ads we just watched if we try to skip toward to the place we were at in the episode ended and risking them freezing on us again. The app is buggy and just feel like it’s some scam to gain money from the ads it makes you rewatch when you try to watch one simple episode..Version: 8.1.10

Waste of TimeDon’t waste your time downloading the app. You can’t play any of the shows available as it will not work in other countries other than America. Also it is not streaming free shows like it advertised as it requires you to log into a payed tv subscription or provider, which again are all only American providers..Version: 8.1.14

UI Is TerribleSo, let’s say I want to watch a series with sequential episodes. The kinds of series that run on… let’s say, CBS. And now let’s say I fall behind a week on this series. You know, because I’m a human in 2021. Well, if I log back into the CBS app a week later to pick up my show, the show link under “Keep Watching” takes me to the most recent episode, not the one I was last watching. I now have to search for the show, navigate to the episode menu, and then select the episode I had in progress. How can it be that every other streaming platform has figured out “pick up where you left off” EXCEPT for CBS and Paramount+? How can it be that ViacomCBS’ app developers just looked at this basic function of streaming (and the watchlist — come on, people, how do you leave off a watchlist??) and just said, “nah”? Is this like a “Producers” scheme? Is someone trying to make this fail so they can walk off with the money?.Version: 8.0.18

Your uglyWhy do you hate canada.Version: 8.0.24

Painful to useThis 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..Version: 8.0.0

Common problemIt seems every person who wants to use this app is Canadian and can’t access your content (me included) seems like you should change that..Version: 14.0.30

Don’t botherDoesn’t allow stream in another country even though I use VPN..Version: 14.0.48

Ads always crashIf 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..Version: 8.0.0

You had one job...The Apple TV version of this app lets you watch live TV and on-demand shows... once you sign in with your cable provider login. This is a nice feature, but has a glaring flaw — you have to sign in with a multi-step process every single time you use the app. Every single tome. (The NBC and ABC apps have the same feature, but they keep you logged in for months on end before requiring a new login.) I think this is a bug. It’s not supposed to work this way. But when I alerted the developers they had no idea how to fix it. Definitely ruins the user experience of an otherwise decent app..Version: 8.0.12

Useless, can’t watch any of the programs!CBS works on my TV but this App appears to only really work in the USA! Why allow us to download it, if it doesn’t work?.Version: 14.0.40

I don’t know what this isIn all honesty, I definetely do not have money to sign up etc so I clicked free episodes. great young shelf on episodes are up I’m happy I click on it and it says- Fatal error I don’t know what this and I am generally confused with the layout after you click on the show you only have the newest episodes. Please give me advice or tell me if I did something wrong ..Version: 14.0.40

It doesn’t work in CanadaPathetic. CNN and MSNBC work and and are free to access. CBS is a garbage app..Version: 8.0.0

No sound or no pictureWatched first 2 episodes of Ghost with no problem clicking the next episode button at the end of the show on the bottom of the screen. The third episode started but had no picture just sound. So I went back to the main menu and chose the third episode from the main menu and it started, but this time had the picture but no sound. I had to closed the APP, restarted the APP, selected the episode I wanted to watch to get both sound and picture. Now if I want to watch an episode I have to close the APP and restart every time I want to watch a new episode..Version: 8.0.47

CBS all accessDoesn’t work in Canada why?can someone please tell me why it’s not working out side country..Version: 8.0.0

It would be great if it workedNothing streams, or broadcasts to my phone this app is useless.Version: 8.1.10

“Content Unavailable”"Sorry, but due to licensing restrictions, content isn't available for streaming outside your country” ??? “Outside your country”? They could at least try to write a coherent message..Version: 8.0.0

Not for ukDoes not work in the uk even when using a vpn.tried with my paid for cyberghost and no joy.oh well back to the torrent site’s,they never let you down.Version: 8.0.0

Too many glitchesWhen casting the video to my tv from my phone, it constantly glitches and closes the app. When you reopen the app, it starts you from the beginning of the episode instead of where you left off. Normally these glitches happen during commercials. You end up having to watch all the commercials again in order to fast forward to where you left off and sometimes, lots of times, it glitches again and starts you over. It’s extremely frustrating to the point where I give up trying to cast it to the tv..Version: 14.0.30

Waste of timeIf you’re advertising your app in the UK then why don’t you list any of the TV providers within the UK. Everything I tried to watch failed due to either a license issue or a steaming issue..Version: 8.0.42

SucksThis is completely disgusting when an app is not country inclusive. Not available in Canada ..Version: 8.0.36

A lot of potential but nowhere near what it could beNot sure about which studios own what content but it’s missing CSI Miami & JAG. Both of which are showing on CBS drama channel, but don’t show entire series and seasons that’s why I was hoping this app could have provided the answer but no such luck. Also licensing/viewing location problems. If it’s restricted to only show in other countries why keep popping up in others. iTunes should be a universal store with content from all nations available to all nations. Even if the prices remain specific it’d give loads more options to customers. It’s not like some of the missing content is available on national tv providers either. Also hope this app expands its content but until it allows other nations to view its content without signup (what it advertises as) it’ll be a missed opportunity.Version: 8.0.47

Outside of USANot acceptable in outside of USA If you not live in USA not worth it to download!!.Version: 8.0.0

CBS app in CanadaSuggestion: Allow app to be used in Canada (like CNN and MSNBC) and insert advertising relevant to the Canadian market. CBS increases exposure, moderate revenue return… and everyone’s happy..Version: 8.0.47

JenNot able to access from Australia.Version: 8.0.30

NBC app is much betterThere’s several issues I have with the CBS app. First of all why can’t we go back more than 5 days without subscribing to the CBS All Access pkg like we can on the NBC app we can go back for weeks & it’s all free. Also on the CBS app I wish we had the option to view it by holding the phone either direction. And one last issue.... it would be nice to be able to still view what I’m watching if I swipe out of the app so if I want to do other things on my phone while watching the program it would be nice to be able to do so. With the NBC app we can do all these things..Version: 8.0.12

Ads constantly freeze during AirPlayAds constantly freeze during AirPlay and there’s no easy way to fix it. This thing is so buggy. And when you restart, you’re forced to watch all the ads over again, as the app doesnt remember either where you left off or that you’ve already watched ads within the last 30s. It’s obnoxious. The developer/customer service team clearly didn’t read this review before pasting in their canned response. I’m talking about Apple AirPlay not Google Chromecast, and the devices are obviously on the same network or it wouldn’t play at all. It’s a problem with the ads freezing, which many others have complained about in reviews. Your response is embarrassing. Dropping from 2 stars to 1..Version: 8.1.16

Fatal Error - Downloading This AppIt's always jarring to have some notification pop up on your screen in the middle of something you're doing – interrupting you, startling you, forcing you out of what you were doing to deal with whatever message has frozen your whole system to make itself known. For users of Apple devices, this jolting horror is an everyday occurrence, usually happening multiple times a day. "Space is low", "new iOS ready for you", whatever. It never is something urgent enough to have to deal with right away, but it has to be dealt with right away because it just interrupted you out of the flow and enjoyment of whatever you were doing. That's the price for using any Apple device. But just imagine — instead of saying "Space is low", the message says "FATAL ERROR. You have exceeded the maximum number of video streams." Fatal? In the middle of an app purely designed for entertainment ? Because if you're using the CBS app, that's what you're watching it for. In the middle of am excellent episode of "Bull", right at the most dramatic and touching moments, I was interrupted FOUR TIMES with the "FATAL UPDATE" message, freezing the show and forcing me to back out and simply hit play again. Fatal?? Not so much. Infuriating?? You bet!! And BTW, I was interrupted while writing this review with "Software Update - New iOS ready", freezing me yet again for maybe the 10th time today. CBS and Apple. What a winning combination!!!!.Version: 8.0.24

What happened to CBS mornings?After the 2012 reincarnation of the show we switched to CBS after having been long time fans of NBC’s Today show that had slowly evolved into almost pure entertainment. The then new format led by the formidable Nora O’Donnell, was a well balanced broadcast with real journalists speaking in normal voices, and the set was tastefully crafted to look welcoming, and not like the set of a kids’ show. The welcome and long missing regular inclusion of international news, intelligently delivered political analysis, and carefully picked lighter news graduated the program to be among the world leaders of morning news broadcasts. Regrettably, many of the best journalists have slowly been moved to other shows or left, and the show’s creators have chipped away at the format, culminating with the revamp of the show on September 6, 2021, when even the set design is screaming at you. For now, we will take a rest from the show and look elsewhere for meaningful content and a less contrived delivery..Version: 8.0.33

CBS MorningsI did enjoy this program in the past when Norah O’Donnell, Anthony Mason and Charlie Rose. Now we have Gayle King - can someone tell the woman to be quiet, to stop telling everyone that Oprah is her best friend (probable reason for her employment) and constantly expressing personal opinions on newsworthy stories (i.e., she just loves Harry and Meghan). What happened to unbiased reporting and professionalism. All three of the hosts are not journalists. They constantly talk together and no one can understand anything being said. How the mighty CBS News has fallen ..Version: 14.0.56

Does not work In CanadaApp sucks waste of time for Canadians.Version: 8.0.47

Do not download! Fatal errors every time you use it.Worst streaming app I’ve ever had. You spend 40 min watching a show and get a fatal error before the end of the show. Missing out on the end of every show every time I use the app. I send an email describing the problem only to get told to…get this…force close the app and reboot. As of I didn’t try that 263 times myself. Then I get told to call an 800 number, which is to Paramount Plus. Not CBS. Therefore, they can’t help fix any fatal errors. So basically, you have to live with watching a show only to get fatal errors before the end with no resolution or ways to fix it. (And no it’s not my brand new iPhone 13 Pro Max not my perfectly running and setup cable service. App is up to date). Doesn’t happen with any other streaming service or app. App has obvious bugs they know about but won’t fix. Update: Dear developer, fix the bugs in your app instead of sending the same form email to users having trouble. If all these people are having the same issue, logic should tell you that it’s YOU! Your app! Not the users. Sending the same email asking people to force close, turn on location services and reboot isn’t going to fix your buggy app..Version: 8.1.10

Useless Outside the USAWhy was I, living in the UK, even offered this app, which doesn’t work outside the USA? Why don’t CBS flag this at the top of the page? I’ll tell you why: because CBS don’t give a damn about how much of my time they waste. So they don’t say that this is USA only. I download it. It doesn’t work. I mess around trying to get it to work. I re-start my iPad. Only when I get to the bottom of a large amount of small print, is it clear that it’s not meant to work outside the USA. Well CBS, I get the message: you think my time is worthless, so it’s okay to waste it. Thanks..Version: 8.0.33

DisappointedDon’t waste your time if you’re UK based. It’s blocked.Version: 8.0.12

Dare not rewind or forwardOr you’ll be forced to sit thru 6 ads AGAIN. I understand content has to be supported by either subscribing or watching ads. There has to be a finite number of ads required to support an episode. Either the developers are lazy or management dumb - if the app looses focus (call comes, some one at door you pause, you want to take a leak, just rewind and watch the last 50’sec) it will replay ALL the adds, doesn’t matter if it just did this a minute before or 10 times in last 30 mins. Its horrible - might as well take away the free option - at-least folks who can’t afford would be spared the pain!.Version: 8.0.38

All other entertainment apps save my place in a showIt is so frustrating to have to get rebooted back to the beginning on a show, have to watch more ads to restart the show, and then have to watch even more ads when I scroll to 28 minutes, which is where I left off. This is the worst app of any of the entertainment apps I use. I don’t have to sign in on the free NBC app. If I’m on the same device, it keep track on my place in the show. With this CBS app, I start watching something in the morning, and when I go back to it after work, I have to start all over and rewatch all the ads I watched earlier that day..Version: 8.0.30

Too many commercials!I tried watching a show. It got halfway through and the app had a “Fatal Error”. I had to start the show over. After watching the intro commercial again I tried to fast forward to where I had left off and it made me watch 6 commercials then resumed the show for 30 seconds and then another commercial followed by another Fatal Error. Restarted the phone, restarted the app, restarted the show, fast forward to a little past halfway, watched the 6 commercials, saw that I had gone too far forward so I backed up a few minutes and got 5 more commercials! I quit!.Version: 8.0.38

Big painFirst you have to get this app to recognize your TV provider. Not easy. Not automatic. Could these gigantic companies not figure it out? Then the next day, assuming you got in the previous day, you will have to go through it ALL again AND sign in AGAIN. Yes same house, phone, provider…? But that is not as easy as you might think. Or does not just sign in. No it has to do some backend hand shakes that take forever and frequently fail. Oh and when in, the episode of whatever you were watching won’t pick up where you left off. You have to start over and fast forward 10 seconds at a time. I swear when an app is this bad I think it is some sort of practical joke. And how does this app have any 5 star reviews? Hmmm. I am sure those are all real people. Hey CBS…don’t let an app ruin your brand and make people give up on the content..Version: 8.0.42

Absolute crap.It doesn’t matter if it’s the CBS, CBS News, CBS All Access or Paramount Plus apps, I have spent almost three years with Apple and CBS trying to work out the endless myriad of bugs in CBS apps especially with respect to Apple TV. Apple and CBS were both very fast to blame each other but seemingly refuse to clean up the problems despite countless video recordings, screen shots, screen sharing, diagnostic tests, log submission and on and on and on. And then I get a developer response asking me to take the same steps I have over and over and over again. What part of “…I have spent almost three years with Apple and CBS…” do they not understand? This is corporate arrogance at an unforgivable level..Version: 8.0.46

CIt doesn’t work in Canada so a lot of people can’t even use it . So much for “fixing the bugs”.Version: 8.1.16

Worst program ever!!!In a progression extending over many months the program has deteriorated to the point where a tv provider sign in is required for EVERY episode of every program I try to view. Most times even that process needs to be successfully completed two or three times to work. This situation always happens when going from one program to another (SWAT to 60 Minutes for example.). Now the process must be done, sometimes repeatedly, for episodes of the same program (60 Minutes to 60 Minutes.) Signing in for a single episode can now take up to 5+ minutes or sometimes is not successful at all. Best of all in requesting support from the application page I was informed “Please be aware that due to a high volume of email, we're unable to provide a response, but do appreciate you taking the time to contact us.” How odd that I don’t appreciate the time they didn’t take to contact/help me.

Doesn’t deserve a 1 starThis is the absolute worst app I’ve ever used to stream a show. It can’t even steam a show for more than 5 seconds without freezing up. It takes 5 minutes to even start up a show and by that time I’m already over trying it and i just give up. I haven’t even been able to stream my show because it refuses to load. I have even tried to stream from my phone instead of Apple TV and it works better but then just freezes and quits working whenever it wants. I’m honestly baffled that this app exists and that it has a 4 star rating. It’s completely useless..Version: 14.0.46

Can stop the show or else it’ll restartI tried watching the Oprah special. I had to pause several times to finish chores and when I went back to the show it had restarted. I had to find my place and sit through several minutes of commercials each time the show restarted rather than remembering where I left off. Very annoying. Then I had to watch the additional commercials every few minutes right after watching commercials. Just used the app to watch the one special and now deleting the app. Way too many commercials and inconveniences..Version: 8.0.0

The Bold And The BeautifulI am very annoyed with the scenes regarding Brook and Deacon which is used for a child to disclose her disloyalty in her marriage. Yes the child saw an act taking place; but to find out whatever they had to push and get more information they used an innocent child. In today’s lifestyle we should leave children with there innocent mindset. Instead the adults are using our deception to prove and destroy a home and The marriage which can affect and destroy Douglas who Love this grandmother (Brook). It’s very hard to undo what the child saw and now it’s undo all because grown ups have a mischievous goal to get there parents back Together. Why can’t the world try to have love and care for each other; the person who gave Brook alcohol may never be found out and Adults who Think they are doing good. We should be trying to show your viewers how important marriage is Especially for children not destructive? Sorry but this whole scenes made me very upset and to help me mentally I will have to withdraw myself fro Watching your show and if I feel this way Maybe you have other viewers who feel the same! Emotional upset. Maybe if you had a survey has to what viewers feel or enjoy the daily live show..Version: 8.0.52

Doesn’t workI’m in Canada and it doesn’t work..Version: 8.0.0

CanadianUnfortunately the reviews still ring true. It still doesn’t work in Canada, and I even tried to sign in with a zip code also. This is terrible on CBS’s part. Also I see that they have not commented on any review. Thanks for trying to fix the problem....... 🤯🤯🤯.Version: 14.0.64

It doesn’t “remember” your place… starts over and rewatch SO MANY ads 👎🏼App would have five stars if it remembered how far you were through the program - so you didn’t have to rewatch ALL the ads too! As it is, if you have to pause the app (answer the phone, check a text, etc), you might find the app restarts and you get to restart your show (and ads) from the beginning. If the app remembered your place (as it used to?) you could just jump back - but no. Rewatch the opening ads (short, granted), then scan to where you were and REwatch maaany more ads. I GET they need to use ads, but the fact I’ve REwatched an *additional* 15 mins of ads and am still only halfway though the show makes me want to uninstall (again)..Version: 8.1.14

CBSWhen opening the app says content unavailable Outside your country why is that.Version: 8.0.18

Not All Access!Falsely claiming all access is very disappointing. Please be clear that your content is not available to Canadian audiences. Save us the bother. 60 minutes, not available..Version: 14.0.40

DO NOT Download THIS APP!Horrible dose not even work so bad if you Download this app you are soooo wasting ur time really bad app Ps(HORRIBLE).Version: 8.0.52

Why why whyParamount plus offers way too much I don’t like and I refuse to watch, this cbs app is cbs only and available with a cable tv subscription lol through your cable company. CBS is so backwards. Why not make this app CBS+ allowing individual subscriptions and keep paramount with the rest or at least offer a separate subscription for cbs only viewers without the nonsense of the paramount app the interface is horrible and it’s just overwhelming so I cancel. I’ll wait until they wake up and see hey we have this app for cbs lovers who only want to subscribe to this app and then allow us. Advertisers beware cbs is not using all revenue streams for your advantage..Version: 14.0.74

WON’T EVEN INSTALL/OPEN ON ROKU, COMPLETE S-SHOW LOL[UPDATE 10/22: you can install but literally can’t open the app, it just closes so you can’t even get to the menu. On both my TCL and Roku+. The ONLY app that has consistently done so on Roku. LOL!] Used to watch CBS This Morning every morning. Stopped a half yr ago b/c on Roku you literally had to uninstall, reinstall and sign in to your tv provider on the app EVERY DAY or you couldn’t watch live tv. Didn’t do that obviously, stopped watching entirely. Just gave it a try again and it literally won’t install - when you get to the app and press install it just closes lol. This has never happened on any app I can remember just CBS. This is on BOTH my TCL R615 and my Roku + on my Samsung so it’s not the TV or device. Oh, and on iPhone - the only place where it usually works half the time - the live feed becomes inaccessible b/c I get a “Concurrent Streams Fatal Error” message, apparently if just one person else on the account even on the cable box is watching you can’t watch either, something that NEVER happens on NBC/ABC haha. SUCH A COMPLETE S-SHOW OF AN APP. You guys lost a viewer for life. Well, I might try again in a year or 2. Worst functional streaming app, and that’s saying A LOT.Version: 14.0.48

Still doesn’t workThis app works for everything until it’s time to watch football. “Fatal error” message every year for the last 4 years AT LEAST. What does “fatal error” even mean?? Who died?? Then they try to respond to the negative reviews with a basic template response with a number to call. The number is bogus just like this app. It’s not my internet, it’s not my router or anything else. Every other app on my Apple TV and phone works, everything else within the CBS app works. Just not live TV when it’s time to watch a football game. I don’t know how or why this app has such high reviews I guess those people aren’t watching football. Whatever CBS. Hire some new people or something. It’s 2022 how hard can it be to maintain an app..Version: 8.0.50

Great app, too many adsTitles says it all. I watch love island and I can’t skip ahead without watching 5-6 ads. It’s kinda annoying but I am grateful for the free streaming for sure!! That’s why I give it the three stars..Version: 8.0.24

Error error error on every showI get so annoyed with this app. My favorite shows are streamed here and I am now getting fatal errors every time I try to play a show. One commercial, fatal error. I am pretty sure I have watched the t-mobile commercial enough times to get a free paramount plus account. I have gone to your terribly unhelpful web site to determine if its me or you. Since I had no issue streaming yesterday and I have the latest version of the app, Im going to call it a you thing. I get frustrated that even with a log in I have to re watch 5 commercials that I have already seen because the app doesn't remember where I left off of a show. Get it together. These issues with this app is one of the main reasons I havent lept to paramount plus. Im not paying to deal with these same issues..Version: 8.0.56

Doesn’t workSaid there was an error. Surely you’re aware of what countries will have access to this content, what a waste of our time. Disgraceful!!!.Version: 8.0.42
