Best Windows 8 Apps
11 July 2016
it wants your tv provider... I do not have one. I get TBS through my Roku app called 'SlingTV'. Unfortunately, SlingTV is not in the list. Boo to TBS and all the other stations that require you to have a cable tv provider in this day and age. Big thumbs down for this app - my rating -1.

Before you complain... Why does ANYONE believe cable or dish channels can be viewed for FREE??? You were asked to rate the APP not the lack of the service for it... These apps are free and provided for ACTUAL customers of cable or satellite services. DUH!! but I see so many negative reviews based on the fact that they need a service provider to view anything --- The app itself is GREAT -- no complaints here... because we actually pay for the service delivered to this channel.

The Windows Metro version of this app is the poorest offering for TBS on demand content. I don't know about Windows mobile devices, but on a computer, you're better off using the website. iOS versions are much more polished. Some problems I've observed:
- 480p or lower quality, not ideal for larger screens.
- Full screen mode leaves a black border on all 4 sides, rather than going truly full screen
- The mouse cursor does not hide during playback. This is especially problematic since in windows 8, the corners and some sides of the screen are used for OS functions, making it a challenge to hide the mouse.
- During commercial breaks, the screen pauses on a screen shot of the show with a play button, just for a moment. This is a minor aesthetic complaint, but it is jarring and a bit confusing at first. It indicates a general lack of polish on this app.
- Episode selection is inefficient.
- After an episode ends, the next will autoplay, but not full screen.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE TIME WARNER CABLE BECAUSE THEY ARE A BUNCH OF MONEY HOGGERS - IN OTHER WORDS, TIME WARNER CABLE ISNT ALLOWING YOU TO WATCH WHAT YOU WANT THROUGH THESE APPS (ABC FAMILY, TBS, TNT) EVEN IF YOUR PAYING FOR CABLE THEY ARE CONTROLLING, IGNORANT, STUPID, PEOPLE

I love this

this is a good app but it does not allow to fast forward to any point in the program. You can only rewind a few seconds. I am not speaking about skipping commercials, the app does not allow to skip parts of the show you might have already watched.

Have to login to watch anything

Good selection of Tv shows and movies. Picture quality is very pixilated at times and freezes. Needs to be able to fast forward and skip through sections.

you have to be connected to a tv provider in order to use the app
9 November 2014
Way better than before - now full movies and shows!

Come on! You (Windows Store) need to step up in the app world/standard if you want a fighting chance to compete with Apple and Google. This app can't access live TV nor full episodes... essentially useless. Rather use my iPhone now.
No full videos, no live stream of channel, no alerts, no pinning show to the start menu, no adding a shows schedule to a calendar app.... no nothing. Needs a lot more features.

There aren't hundreds of clips as stated in the description.
The few clips that are available are very short.
Every time you switch a clip to full screen, or switch it back from full screen, it starts playing from the start.

No episodes of anything... one big cruddy commercial.

The purpose of a TV provider app is so that you can watch shows on it. This just tells you about the shows they play. What's the point in that?

This apps so weak. Trying to watch the NCAA basketball final 4 and the app freezes up the whole time the teams are playing and then it releases just when they go to a break, but only long enough to switch to a still screen while the commercials are playing and then that stays up until the next break in action and freezes up again to show the still screen for TBS.

Where's TBS NOW?
5 February 2014
Honestly just downloaded it for Conan clips, everything is organized by type of clip (monologue, band, web, etch). I have to wake up at 5am every morning so I can watch the live show, but this app more than makes up for it and honestly its better than using the website. Would give it 5 stars but I don't believe it offers the full episodes :(
21 January 2014
I'll come back to this app once full episodes are added.
19 November 2013
This app does not work on the computer!
3 October 2013
The app for Android and IPad will play full episodes and stream TBS
11 September 2013
Where's the beef ? very limited in what I can do with it. And how can you have Seinfeld clips under a section called the so Nazi, and the put the wrong clips up there just because they have soup in the name! Does the person who posts the cls actually watch them? #deletethisappnow
11 August 2013
Just a few clips and show schedules.
29 April 2013
Hi there, just when the app is about to play a video, it crashes to metro home screen. Please fix. Many thanks.
30 March 2013
it doesn't have any full episodes
One would this this app would be like ABC's app and have FULL EPISODES prominent in the app . If it does, they are buried amongst all the other clips. This is basically a promo app to get people to watch the TBS channel.
