Best Windows 8 Apps
14 July 2014
Full episodes now, but the frequent video crashes and the need to rewatch endless ads in trying to get back to where it left off makes for a horrible experience.

From what I can tell, this is an adaptation of the iPad app. Yes, there is a limit on the number of episodes. But this is true for all the network apps and on their websites. I like the iPad app but the layout of this one is horrible! It is not user friendly. I have a My CBS sign-on that I can use on my iPhone and iPad. It saves my shows and shows what I recently watched on all devices. This one is generic and you have to set it up manually. To find My CBS, I have to arrow all the way to the right. A simple right click would have been nice. It plays fine on my Asus laptop. But the app itself is like many I find in Windows - not near the quality of Apple apps.

This app went from being a piece of rubbish to really great with the latest update! Thank you CBS for listening to user feedback, stepping up to the plate and giving us a quality app.
One piece of feedback: The non-live medium tile looks awful - it looks like the all-seeing eye and it takes up the *entire* tile. Couldn't it say "CBS(*)", where "(*)" is the eye?

While the CBS app does offer full episodes and shortER (not too short, though) commercial breaks, it lacks the latest episodes of CBS shows. All of the episodes that I found were at least 2 weeks old. For the latest episodes, I still have to visit CBS.com.

Even though its web site has full episodes, CBS's Windows App doesn't. Figure that one out...
5 January 2013
The main reason I care to have an app such as this is so I can watch the most recent episodes of shows such as Big Bang Theory. The fact that this app does almost everything else I can do on their site except watch full episodes makes this app useless to me.

What is the point of this app? This is so laughable; don't waste your time...
11 February 2013
The app doesn't appear to have full episodes available for streaming. Without that feature, what's the point of the app?

Not working lately because app says it's unavailable. Does this mean CBS won't be updating their app anymore? When it did work, it would take a week or more to watch new episodes, which is unacceptable. Very disappointed!

The lack of episodes on this app is unbelievable. Of all the shows I watch on CBS, there has only been 1 episode uploaded in the last 3 months. Not to mention the episodes aren't even recent. Most networks you can watch the episode the day after it aired, a week at most. App works great, but there needs to be more selection.

Useless app, why even bother? Why would anyone want an app from a network other than to watch full episodes, which this app does not have, I immediately uninstalled.
12 February 2013
Until CBS offers full episodes, I'm uninstalling.

Can't see any show , stop wasting money on these lame apps

There are maybe 2 shows on CBS that I wanna watch, and since CBS doesn't work on Hulu, I was hoping my problems were solved. Nope. Just some clips. Dear CBS, we don't want to watch your commercials.

No full episodes...

Seriously, why waste engineering resources making this app, and to you engineers who developed this app, have some common sense and stand up to your managers who asked you to develop this piece of crap, it damages your reputation and wastes your time. Besides all that, the app is just not responsive, it is very slow when navigation to it. I hope they change it to something useful like the ABC player app.

Missing full episodes does not make it very useful.

Update: Issue fixed. I will give it three stars since the app is useless compared to the website since it doesn't have the CBS subscription option, and new episodes are available on the website long before being available in the app.
Update: Now every time I load the app it tells me I do not have an internet connection and my only option is to exit. The app no longer works.- one star until fixed.
When the app first came out you couldn't even watch episodes. They have since added this, but there is a long delay from the time that many shows air on their website(day after) to when they appear in the app(typically 1 week after TV air date). I may as well use the website- I tried to give feedback through the app as well and it kicked back with a failure message.
This app is ok, but still has a ways to go.

When I try to run it, I get same error as other reviewers have stated. "CBS app is currently unavailable. Please check your internet connection." My internet connection is working correctly. Please fix the app.

Doesn't seem to be working at the moment. Tried to uninstall it and re-install, didn't work. Has been like this for a week now.
11 April 2013
no full episode. time waste uninstall straight away. i wonder if could rate it zero
14 March 2013
might as well go online and watch the episodes instead of cluttering your start menu with a link to clips. And it crashed the first time I opened it.
10 March 2013
Same problem as everyone else, no full episodes. Just hoping if we spam them about this issue enough they'll fix it. I mean your competitors give us full episodes, come on

CBS - Join the 21st century already. Your viewers want Full episodes online. If you don't, soon we'll find something else to watch.
9 February 2013
Terrible...better off removing from the store and starting over CBS....
27 January 2013
It would be nice if they would include the same full episodes that are on the website.
Hey CBS, we don't want to watch useless clips online. We want full shows, you have them on line make an app that lets us watch them with ease.

One star only because you cannot watch full episodes with this application. I will change my review and rating when they update the application and allow me to watch full episodes.
