More greedy CBS BS. Ads before everything! And unstable.


Buggy app, crashes a lot, and makes you watch too many apps. Just skip it and get your news elsewhere. Would give zero stars if I could.

CBS Local: Like just about everything to do with CBS lately, the app is awful. I go to a new story to see a local NEWS VIDEO. But CBS, you greedy idiots, have to play an advertisement first. OK. The ad plays fine, and then the news story starts, and hangs about 10 seconds into the story. After a long pause, the app crashes. As usual.

Bad enough, but when it relaunches to the story again, I have to watch the ad again. Seriously? Could you get any greedier? And before EVERY short news video! Give us a break from ads. But I suspect this will be a paid app soon anyway.

First CBS All Access where you have to pay to stream WITH commercials. You are the only network that when one subscribes on cable or satellite, they still have to pay extra for the streaming service. You hold your channels hostage on Dish for more money, costing subscribers more. Now, ads before EVERY news video in your local app, where that video is usually shorter than the ad. Why not just come into my house and steal things while your at it?

Oh, and feedback inside the app? IT STILL DOES NOT WORK! The app feedback email ALWAYS says try again in a few minutes. Seriously, are you guys for real? If you don’t want feedback, remove the button at least.

App deleted!

Live streaming and contact support don't work


The live streaming video of the newscast seems to nothing more than a frozen image of the White House. I've sat through the stupidly long California Walnut commercial three times and still the show does not stream or even appear.
But to make the issue even worse, I've also tried to send an email through the "contact support" option well over ten times now. I continually get a "try again later error". Should I try a different support line to figure out why I can't contact support?

I have deleted and re-downloaded the app, which is still the same version, 2.2.10. As President Trump would say, "#Sad."

Crashes regularly


I’d say once or twice a month the app is problematic.
During those times, I attempt to play a video (usually the weather report). The app crashes repeatedly.
I attempt to submit a comment. The app crashes.
Once the weather video crashed the app but the other videos played correctly.
This app is better than coping with their website. That experience is worse. The ads tend to cause problems with the video player. That problem is more consistent than the app problem.
