Customer Reviews

Good concept but crashes a lot

I have used this app for months and I like being able to watch previous aired shows as well as "live" tv is excellent. Video quality is good. My complaints are that it crashes contstantly and the video scroll bar doesn't respond well. Watching it the screen just goes blank on live tv and then have to select the other (east/west) feed and back again to get back to show you were watching. Then, when you back or advance the scroll bar it does not respond accurately, you have to move it multiple times to get it what you want to do. If these were fixed it would be just about the perfect tv app!

App does not work

I have a cable subscription through Cox and I still can't watch using this app. I sign-on through the cable provider and then I have to sign on through the TBS sign in, which is separate, and it still will not let me in. I get an error reading authentication failure please connect to your provider although I am connected. It has done this many times over several days. This app is the worst I have ever used. I have never been able to get this to work. This app is total garbage just like TBS. I guess a crappy cable network should have a crappy app. They have hit the mark with this. Don't waste your time.

Nearly unusable, completely awful

Watching shows on the TBS app is an extremely frustrating experience. I've tried watching live shows as well as non-live shows such as Friends and Big Bang Theory. The videos lag and hiccup constantly. The app takes forever to load. The same commercials play over and over. Oh, and don't make the mistake of switching screens for even a second because the show won't remember where you left off so you have to start the episode over again, and before you can get back to watching, you have to watch another 3+ minutes of commercials.
