Ratings and Reviews
I’m beyond frustrated and angry! For several yrs., I’ve been paying to watch CBS shows and all I get is constantly frozen episodes! It takes 2 hrs SERIOUSLY to watch an hour long show. Every minute, the app freezes and I have to close it and start over. If I try to resume, I have to watch all the commercials and then it freezes again. I’ve been through the whole customer service thing and they just want to blame it on Verizon. I’ve had Verizon to my home. They’ve checked everything and are sure it’s on YOUR end! Why can’t you fix this problem that apparently a ton of other customers are having? You’re the only major network that charges to watch their shows and I can’t even watch them This is disgusting!!!
EVEN MORE DISGUSTED
I posted my review a week ago and you replied saying the app had been updated and as far as you were concerned, all problems fixed. You asked that I post a new review after I used the new updated app. Well here I am and more annoyed than the first time! You app freezes constantly! I have to close the app, reopen it and start my show over FROM THE BEGINNING including the million commercial! What am I paying for?????? ABC, NBC and FOX don’t charge and their apps work perfect! Please fix this app or I’m done paying. It looks like I’m not alone either so keep your eyes open for a ton of cancellations!!!
Developer Response ,
Hi, the iOS/Bluetooth issue has been fixed! Simply download the latest version (4.14.1) of the CBS app in the App Store to apply the fix. Once you're back to streaming again, we hope you'll take a moment to update your review.
I signed up for the 1-week trial because I've been a Star Trek fan for 17 years and I wanted to watch Discovery in quality and also to support everyone's efforts (after all, they're using Trek as the flagship of this new streaming service and to heavily promote it).
Unfortunately, the service has some serious issues. Even for the $6.99 a month, there are still commercial breaks set up as they would be on TV. That's one thing, and maybe it wouldn't bother everyone -- I understand that. But I have also had a very frustrating time getting Discovery, as well as other shows, to play without issue. Often, an episode won't start (the commercial beforehand plays flawlessly, however...) and instead hangs on a black or green screen. Other times, I get an error message saying CBS servers are unavailable.
I understand this service is relatively new compared to the other streaming options out there, but since its launch, there has been plenty of time to work out the kinks, and it boggles the mind how CBS, considering the size and experience of this company, cannot successfully implement what several other companies have been doing for years. It just goes to show how far behind the times the people in charge are.
The future of TV?
I mainly was curious about Star Trek: Discovery. I don't mind paying for this. I think it's a clever value proposition: properly fund a series with a waning audience by putting it up a la carte with a 3-day trial. If it hooks you in, the fee is worth it for a few months, and if you don't like it, just cancel in iTunes. Certainly better than $80/ month cable or satellite for a bunch of nothing and more convenient than the traditional broadcast TV model. Plus, I'd hate to see Netflix become a total monopoly.
Although I could just stream it to Apple TV through Airplay, I prefer navigating with a remote. (Also saves phone battery.) The CBS app is available on Apple TV but, in linking to the Apple-initiated account I encountered a slight hiccup. I had to reset my password on the CBS website, then check my e-mail, then change the password. For simplicity, I just put the same password right back in. It worked, but I'm a little annoyed that this process required racing back and forth between three different devices. Many people don't have the luxury of being able to check their primary e-mail on their phone.
