Reviews From google play store

Consistent problems, every time. Audio becomes desynced with the video. Pressing the next episode sometimes ends up replaying the first episode watched of that session. Sometimes, the entire app needs to be force closed, but that doesn't fix the infinite buffering problem on the TV via Chromecast. If there was ever a way to encourage and promote piracy, this would be it.

This is absolutely the worst application/service combination in the history of streaming media. Not only did the app deactivate my account after the trial period expired, but Google play charge me for the service while my account was deactivated. CBS All Access Phone Help told me there was nothing they could do. They said they would connect me to Google, whom they assured me could help. When they transferred me though, it was just to the front-end main intake line for GooglePlay, which proceeded to direct me to the web site and then disconnected me. I only subscribed to this service for Discovery and Picard and was willing to pay the $9.99/month for that, but since they aren't giving me the service and are just disconnecting me while charging me for a service they aren't rendering, Picard or no Picard, I've cancelled this absolutely catastrophically horrible service. It. is. the. worst. I've cancelled everything and requested a return from Google Play. In addition, the app is also horrible. The captions are always out of sync (sometimes too soon, sometimes too late) with the speech, the navigation is very much out of date with current applications, the in-video navigation is also horrible and counter-intuitive. ...and I thought Prime Video had a poor interface. CBS All Access takes "Poor Interface" to a whole new level.

Consistent issues when trying to watch on my Sony 4K Bravia TV. In fact, most of the time the app won't get past the launch page. I have to cast from another device which defeats the purpose.

Still no luck trying to cancel service. I must be very difficult, or they really make it very hard for you to cancel. I've been following directions and can't find how to do it.

garbage.. spinning blue wheel on all 3 shield tv's.. cancelling subscription.

terrible....customer service is a joke...impossile to cancel ...titles are horrible...streaming quality fair at best

Doesn't always start the show - sometimes it just spins. Warning - if you choose to pay for a year instead of monthly - you're stuck - no refunds. Also can't add Showtime unless you are on the monthly plan. My biggest frustration is I can't turn off autoplay - at the completion of an episode it immediately starts playing something - and the app decides what to play next. For a while it kept trying to force me to watch The Good Fight - now it starts Twilight Zone without any action on my part. This forces me to stop playing the episode I didn't want before I can select what I want to watch next. Makes me mad every single time. But, I canceled cable, and between this app and Hulu I can see over 90% of the broadcast TV shows I like to watch. I paid for the commercial free version and have no issues with commercials. Video and sound quality is also fine. I'm primarily using on a Sony android TV.

Loses lip sync in commercials. Every time. At times, audio is over a second ahead of the video. The app regularly fails to work at all. "We are experiencing some technical difficulties. Please check again later." We are experiencing a very badly written app. Scrap the whole thing, hire a new team of developers, and start over. It's FUBAR. To add insult to injury, when the app is having problems, and I have to restart the program, I have to watch the same damn commercials again. Update: No, I will not call in. Your streams lose lip sync. Multiple reviewers have noted this. I am not on your SQA team. Pay me some money, and I will consider helping you solve the problem. Is it the server, the app, a fundamental flaw in the time sync capabilities of the protocol you use? Who knows? Especially not your development team. This is compounded by the fact that leaving and resuming a show does not work. The only option is the restart, which means I have to watch the commercials over and over and over again if I want to get rid of the lack of lip sync. Surely you have some way of detecting and logging errors. Figure it out.

I wish i had read other reviews, because they were right. Do NOT use the free trial, they will charge you immediately and then you can't log in and trying to change your password is a pain in the a$$. not a bad streaming app, but the crappy purchase, trial, and log-in make it awful.

Got this app to watch a game that was advertised on the front page of the app. Game wouldn’t stream as advertised. Extremely difficult to figure out how to cancel. Ended up paying for something I never used once. The charge on my credit card was ran through google play, so I didn’t catch it. I thought it was a movie rental charge.

Pathetic. After a short time all I get is error messages. I paid for too long and definitely will be fighting for a refund. I DO NOT recommend this app or CBS in general.

What I love about CBS All Access is Star Trek! with Twilight Zone comin' up from behind quickly. The video plays fine on my Nvidia Shield TV. But the largest issue I have is this; I have to watch these shows through this app. Some of the annoyances: 1. No option to turn off the auto play "feature". So you get to add shows to your "Shows You Watch" list, whether you want them or not. 2. No control over your "Shows You Watch" list. If you don't want that show to be in that list glaring in your face with that actor you hate, tough cookies. It may never leave! (Seems like you could once) 3. You also can't just select a show to add to your list to watch later. You have to start it and stop it. Then it will show up, forever. 4. How about a way to mark shows as watched / unwatched. That way when I leave 10 minutes of show credits and commercials I could set it as watched. Because currently I have a list called "Continue Watching" filled with show I already finished watching. Just not to your metrics. No chance you could be doing that to inflate your numbers? Naw, never. I could go on, but you get the picture.

"Try CBS All Access FREE now! Then pay only $5.99 per month thereafter for the Limited Commercials plan or $9.99 per month for the Commercial Free plan. " <----- This is a LIE. I was charged immediately and my next bill date is 28 days later.

Poor user interface, connection errors, some commercials even with "commercial free". Difficult to cancel. Stick with Netflix and/or Hulu. How do I cancel? Really difficult to figure out.

You really have to check your credit card statement closely when you have a credit card attached to a large corporation like google + apple = greed. The free trial tease is getting old and it should be easier to cancel

So much for a free trial , enter card details and they charge immediately , no free trial as they advertise

Nothing live or searching works for me. I paid for a month and found the app to be useless.

beware, even if you cancel the free trial before it ends they still charge your account.

Always froze and buffered endlessly - never able to watch a program

Said free trial but my card got charged right away. Total rip-off!

Update: 4/27/19: every time it cuts to commercial the audio and video are out of sync. I have to rewind every single time, which sometimes causes the whole thing to freeze up and then by the time it unfreezes it decides to replay a whole new set of ads. Horrible app, but unfortunately the only way to watch Star Trek Discovery.

I had doubts reading some of the bad reviews from other people, but I gave it a shot after Netflix increased their prices and I think I really like the app on my Mi Box. It seems to run well with my network connection and I really like checking out a lot of the classic shows they have with some of the new ones. I especially love putting on shows like I Love Lucy when my grandma is over. She is super excited that we can put on classic shows or some soaps when we hang out. When I am by myself though I enjoy watching the Twilight Zone or any of the Star Trek shows they have. I'm sure not all the things they have are appreciated by everyone, but this is my personal experience. :)

Frequent glitches caused the paid version to crash at inopportune times. Also the app that we used to subscribe on our TV cannot be used to cancel - deceptive. I thought I had it cancelled only to find out you have to go to google play to cancel. You can subscribe on the tv but you cannot cancel by the same method. I do not appreciate their effort to make cancelling difficult.

I tried CBS All Access on my Sony XBR65A1E Google Play / Android TV app and I feel the video / sound quality, app features, etc are all sub par compared to what I am used to with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, HBO Now and more. On top of the technical deficiencies, they also play too many ads for something they want to charge $6 / month or $10 / month for no ads and just for the one show I wanted to watch. I think I'll wait for the show to become available through some other option.

HORRIBLE! Also, extremely difficult to cancel subscription. DO NOT USE THE FREE TRIAL OR DOWNLOAD!

What a major pain in the a@$ to cancel this!

Very poor video quality on live tv with Nvidia shield. My Apple tv looks pretty good (HD or very close). Nvidia Shield tv looks 480p or worse. Very pixelated. Not as noticeable with on demand content. Both devices on the same network and both test at 25Mbps or higher.

It plays video content and commercials nothing special. Rewind on a television with Android TV is not possible, it takes you all the way back to the beginning. Today cancelled my subscription because "The Good Fight" season 1 has ended. Only 10 episodes! Bummer. I will not subscribe again until season two is released NEXT year. There's nothing else in the CBS library that I cannot get from what my DVR records, or from on demand thats provided from my satellite provider

This app plays on demand content but whenever I try to play Live TV... the frustration begins. I usually get the message that says, "We could not determine your location. Please enable your system to send us your location." Locations permissions are granted to this app everywhere I could find. So I'm forced to use the app via an Amazon FireStick. For a paid subscription service, CBS needs to do much better or join one of the other services (PlayStation Vue, Sling, etc.).

Very disappointed in this app. Gave it a try to watch the The Good Fight and was surprised by the amount of "limited" commercials involved. Not going to pay $6 a month and still have to deal with commercials. Even with a new Star Trek tv show coming out in a few months on All Access, I will live without it. Confusing interface and plenty of prompts to update to commercial free was a turn off.

In "Glengarry Glen Ross", Blake says "They're sitting out there waiting to give you their money. Are you gonna take it?" CBS is not going to take it. I tried to upgrade to commercial free and every device said go to the original device, which is my android TV. My android TV gave me error 0, which means no error. Success. So I called the toll free number on the screen with this "error" and they didn't have a clue what to do. I held for an hour while the tech told me different menu choices (which without exception didn't exist). She told me I'd be transferred to Google Play and I said no thank you. Why would google troubleshoot this app on their behalf? It plays video fine. Looks ok. Too many ads, up to 5 by 40 minutes into the show. Sometimes 5 ads, then <10 seconds of show (looking at you Colbert) then 5 more ads. I canceled my subscription.

Have to agree with the other 1 star reviews. Signed up last evening on my android TV. Watched one show loaded with commercials. It hung near the end on commercial but finally loaded so we could finish that single show. Canceled this morning. Why would you want to PAY for a streaming service that's crammed with commercials?? No thanks. I'll DVR the shows and use the skip button liberally! If I'm going to pay to view I expect much fewer commercials!

Absolute rubbish. The CBS app for my phone and tablet allows me to watch shows for free with ads, however the Android TV version requires a subscription for everything. I'm forced to cast from the app on my phone to watch CBS shows on my TV

NFL football blacked out on CBS local channel feed. Deal breaker. No such blackout on Sling TV local Fox and NBC feeds.

Terrible navigation!

what a p.o.s. this is. everytime i try and use it, it thinks that i dont have a subcription, so im like ok ill subscribe again, guess what my device knows i already do have a subscription so it freaks out and closing the app because the app is obviously retarded as is the developer who sat on the toilet and created it. for the love god fix this.

Quite possibly one of the worst subscription apps ever made. I've been using this on iOS and Android. Shocked with the level of ads and that this is so poorly made that it is the only streaming app I have that lags constantly. I bought a Netgear Blackhawk to eliminate all potential issues, all my equipment runs better since yet this horrible app still lags. Except for ads of course. Pay for an app and the only thing that works consistently is ads. Awesome. Am cancelling at the end of my shows season and hopefully can find a different solution in the future.

It said it was free to try, but charged me anyway, I cancelled within 15 minutes and I still didn't get a refund. Plus, the one thing I wanted it for, anyways, streaming NFL it said was blocked from streaming, but it would only tell you that after it charged you for the subscription. TOTAL SCAM!!

This app hangs several times per show. Streaming is frequently interrupted before or after commercials.... which are numerous.

Who built this app? Let alone who's supporting it? They have no clue how to operate an app relating to tv steaming community. It crashes, it freezes, it makes you submit credentials!! Over and over again!! Ugh!!! Then they're are the same 4 ads per month that they run over and over again. I'm paying for this app and they run commercials like its OTA!! Come on. Oh did I mention the interface SUCKS!

Worked great for 6 weeks now Live TV does not work and the customer support line is really bad. Hoping for a new release and then I will change my review (if it gets better). Why does live TV work from my PC, from my Phone but not my Android TV when it did 2 days ago. Reset the android TV to factory defaults then reinstalled app and same error. Says no internet connection but I can stream all the shows without issue just nothing live. If your looking for live TV this is not reliable nor is it working properly.

Uses proper design. Voice search works properly. Recommends way too many irrelevant shows. There should be a section of the app for shows I watch so I don't have to search every time. Captions should be customizable by color, position, and size.

To charge a monthly fee for television that is free OTA, is one thing. But, to still have commercials that you are unable to fast forward thru is almost criminal. There is nothing on CBS worth that amount of $ and time

My initial reaction was that $6 is too expensive for just CBS, based on a comparison to Hulu, Showtime and so on... worse yet, as I found out after trying it out, you still have to watch ads at this price! I won't be subscribed long.

Very poor video playback on nvidia shield Android TV. On the other hand, casting from Android phone, computer, etc. to the shield works flawlessly. The app also spams the home screen with random recommendations. Finally, the 'recently watched' category is basically useless. By clicking on a recently watched show, it doesn't take you to the show page, but instead starts playback... Of something you've already watched! A 'continue next episode' category would be much more useful. I did the one week trial and paid for an additional month to catch up on a show, but with all these issues, there's no incentive to pay for a subscription to a poorly optimized app with a confused feature set

Live TV doesn't work and I am in a supported area, just throws error internet connection required. Remove the ads and we may have a winner here. Why would I pay for ads?

The app would be great if there were no ads. I refuse to pay for a service and still have to watch ads. This is why I cut the cord many years ago.

Great app but only one issue is closed captioned font very small. I am Deaf person depend on closed caption.

you get adds, even though you pay for the content, you have to sign in every other week, but you can't do it directly from the TV, you have to use your computer or other device.

$6/mo and I still have to watch ads? No thanks, I will be cancelling after my free month is over.

CBS all Access is SLIMY! I already pay for TV!

Not worth $5.99 per month for only CBS shows AND commercials.

$6/mo with advertisements on most shows. No thanks.

I can watch the shows I missed on Android TV

Finally I can watch CBS content on my Nexus Player!

Do you really think limiting the content on your service is helping your apps popularity ? This is what causes people to pirate your content. I try to pay for it but companies like this is what cause people to look elsewhere for content. Also making it difficult to cancel the subscription makes people hate the entire experience even more! Seriously not caring about customer experience is not the way to run a business.

This app for Shield TV is not usable. The video is bad and watching a show (or trying to watch a show I should say) yields an error. I've uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted, nothing helps. It's so bad I don't understand how it could be so bad. I'm going to cancel the service so I'm not that upset, I use YTTV and its dvr so I don't really need All Access but if it worked I might have kept it. The Roku app works fine if you use that.

The ratings don't lie. Horrible app. Better off using an antenna to capture over the air broadcasts. Major issue was that shows would not play properly after the obligatory commercials. Not a single issue EVER with any of the commercials playing, but as soon as the commercial ended and the actual show was to begin, there would be no audio, or the picture would fast forward while the audio played normally. Pausing would sometimes sync things back up, but if you tried to rewind, the episode would start all over. Then you could only fast forward a few seconds at a time to get back to where you where. It's as if the app is rigged to force you to purchase the commercial free access. Not having it. Next issue is the blacking out of some sports events. Even though the game can be seen over the air, CBS does not have the rights to stream NFL games. NFL apparently has their own app for that. Then there was the hunt to cancel the service. Called as the website says only to be told I have to go thru Google+ since that's how I signed up. Why not list that on your website to prevent time being wasted!

Why would I pay to watch commercials? The commercial free option is just too much for few CBS shows that I watch. No thanks.

Worked pretty well to stay up to speed on latest season of Survivor. Would have kept the app if there were other CBS shows we liked.
