15 Second Ads Please!
CBSN is great and the app is the best of the network news apps by far.. But we'll come back a lot more often if we don't have to sit through 30 second ads every time we want to watch a short video..
Live Stream 24/7
Wish list: Needs ability to stream from phone to tv via Apple TV and Smart TV (like Samsung). Option to choose stream quality would be extremely helpful, too. Other than that, hands down better than any other major network app. A keeper.
Audio Ads - Don't Download this App
While CBS has to sell ads to fund their news operation, having an audio ad start up at work selling products is unacceptable. Some of the ads are inappropriate as well. And there doesn't seem to be any way to shut off the audio add. I'll have to get my news from other sources.
