  • Crashing App Oct 28, 2021

    By FamilyTunes4400
    I was really excited to have this app when I first got paramount plus several months ago on my phone as it would give me a chance to watch movies and shows when I’m doing work without have to turn on my laptop to watch or plug my laptop into my TV with an HDMI cable if I wasn’t using the main TV that was logged into paramount plus. However, in the last 3 to 4 months, this app has done nothing but crash. I have done everything I can think of from updating the app when it needs to be updated, uninstalling it and reinstalling it, and turning my phone on and off. I have tried looking up solutions on the Internet, but they either weren’t very helpful or I wasn’t able to perform the solutions that other people have said might work. With all of the fixes that have been going on in the updates provided, the one thing that has not been fixedIs the crashing of the app on an iPhone. I can’t watch anything without the app crashing two seconds into a TV show or a movie. I then have to constantly re-open the app and find out where I left off in a TV show or movie because it doesn’t restart where I left off. Oh no it starts me from the very beginning and I have to find out where I left off. With all of the updates that are being done I hope that you take a look at the app crashing because that is the biggest issue I have with this and itd be nice to be able to watch something on my phone without it crashing on me every two seconds.
  • Pleasantly Surprised… Jan 13, 2022

    So we downloaded the app probably about two months ago for Yellowstone and 1883. Caught up on some others and then kind of forgot about it for a couple of weeks. Went back to watch 1883 and nothing would play. Had an error message saying couldn’t stream to our region. Now I live in Hawaii but we are still part of the good old US of A so I didn’t understand the issue. Thought maybe it was just a hiccup, but, nay, it continued. I looked up how to possibly reset and fix it but nothing worked from the FAQ page. I will admit we were a bit frustrated and after reading the reviews I thought we were done with the app. Now at this point you all are wondering why I gave 4 stars and how I was “pleasantly surprised“. I called their customer service and my rep went into the account and reset our account. She told me to wait a couple of hours before I try again and she would also submit a query to the tech department. She had me give her all the info that came up in my account settings page and even the model of my Apple TV. Now it didn’t come up after the two hours or even later that night, but next day, today, it is working beautifully. Mahalo (a proper Hawaiian thank you) Paramount+ for the great shows and the excellent customer service!

    I love the content on this app and they seem to be coming out with more shows I would like to watch. Watching it on my phone isn't a problem. BUT on the television though it is horrible. It freezes and starts over. It starts the next episode before finishing the prior one and not by a little. I mean almost 10 mins. And I also have to watch the full episode because pausing or stopping it will force me to start all over. Can barely go back or forward scenes either. It needs a huge update!

    The stand alone platform has a few bugs, but the content is great. At least, I feel like they're bugs. If you select a show from your list, it starts playing right away, you can't select an episode to play. If you want to select a specific episode you have to find the show in the list of shows and then go to series details. Also, you can't pause. You have to exit the show, so... rewind isn't an option. Another glitch is the fact that it doesn't remember my caption settings between uses.

    A handful of good shows/movies to watch. However, the subtitles are in tiny font and in BLACK lettering. No other options. Who the hell thought of this and ran with it. Horrible for those living in apartments trying to be considerate to neighbors, unless the remote lives in your hand the entire time. Also, the amount of titles available are vast, but very few actually worth watching. I expected more Paramount. Get it together. Marketplace is too competitive for this.
  • Great options, poor quality Jul 1, 2021

    By Devin Eatman
    I have paramount for my PS4. I’ve had it for a few months now, and it’s just ok. The selection of shows is wonderful, however I have an issue with a very specific glitch. Throughout certain shows, the dialogue will go back 5 seconds and repeat itself. The show keeps rolling with the now delayed dialogue. It eventually skips over the forward dialogue causing you to miss some of what was being said in your show. It’s a constant throughout the show and it does get very annoying. Also, it’s plagued with commercials which also are delayed. The advertisement countdown comes on at the top left of the screen randomly, but it doesn’t go to commercial break. It just has an advertisement countdown while your watching your show. At the end of that countdown, then it goes to commercial. Something else that’s strange, is that for the first two or three months of having this app, I only had a commercial at the beginning of the show, and then no more. Now, it’s full of ads. I understand some ads and I’m fine with that, but Jesus Christ. They are long commercial breaks and there are multiple throughout the show. Like I said, it’s not horrible. It just has some glitches. I’m sure they will be worked out in the future.
  • Crashes, loses spot, makes you watch unnecessary commercials Jul 7, 2018

    By ridge.townsend
    If I could give this app 0 stars, I would. When I use this app with Chromecast, it constantly crashes and not only does the app crash, it causes my Chromecast to crash as well. Then when everything comes back up, it doesn’t start your show at the same spot AND makes you watch commercials before it even starts at the wrong spot, then chances are you’re gonna have to fast forward thru a scheduled commercial break and then you’re gonna have to wait for those as well. It’s ridiculous. Such a horrible bug needs to be fixed and be fixed NOW. Then there’s the horrible lack of certain content. If people are paying for this service, ALL of the CBS library should be available. I imagine a lot of people want a CBS service so they can watch shows like The Big Bang Theory. Welp. Sorry. YOU ONLY GET 5 EPISODES. Are you kidding me? One of their most popular shows and you can only watch the last 5 episodes?? Do your fans a favor and give them the content they want instead of asking for more money on top of the money you already ask for the streaming service. Horrible.

    By Jacklain Avitia
    So far all is good, no lagging, ads are not much of an issue, and always up to date on shows. Great experience so far. Much more to look forward to in the future with the newest shows and episodes to look forward to. I have read other reviews on this application but have not experienced the same issues as others. So far all my experiences have been awesome, and no complaints on my end, all smiles and giggles here. With that being said I hope all can experience the same as I am, for the time....
  • Love it but can you change one thing Jun 24, 2021

    By Gabby Lucky happy Gebbeb
    I really love paramount + because it has all kinds of shows and movies I can’t watch anywhere else but the only thing I would change is how it is when you just press the home button. You know how apps like Netflix or Disney + have it where when you go to the Home Screen and other apps it will have the little screen in a corner that is still playing the show/movie even if your not in the app that provides the show or movie? That’s what I want for paramount +. It would make things a lot easier for when say I have to look something up or something like that. I don’t want to have to get off of the show to do something small while I’m super invested in what’s happening. I really hope you take this suggestion and put it in your next update. ❤️❤️❤️ Also I have never had any of the problems so many people are complaining like idiots about. Whenever I watch paramount + on tv or on my phone, I have no problems at all. The most problems I had with it was that it skips a couple of seconds into a new episode.
  • Frustrating to use Mar 8, 2021

    By Kat Monster
    I had hoped that with the conversion from CBS to Paramount Plus, we would get a redesigned app. I am disappointed that it didn’t turn out that way. I would recommend this service a lot more if there were a couple more features. First it needs a watchlist feature. I cannot stand having to browse for the show that I want to watch every single time instead of going to one place that has all the shows I have earmarked to watch. Also, downloads need to be fixed. And no it is not my device nor my internet connection. This is the only app where after 2 days, anything downloaded pops up with an error message when I try to play it. Supposed to be available for 30 days but really ends up being 2. I am aware that once you start to watch an episode you have a certain amount of time to finish watching before it expires. That is not what I’m referring to. Again, I do not have issues with any other streaming service’s app with downloading and watching episodes later. I live in an area where I don’t have access to at-home internet so this is a very important issue to me. I would use and recommend this app a lot more if these issues were fixed/ added

    It's gone from frustrating to awful. When casting to my Nest Hub, it will play an ad and then immediately jump to the next episode of the series ... starting with another ad, and then jumping to the next episode. Over and over. The intervention is to not connect to the Hub until after the ad plays, but I don't have to do that with any other app. This is particularly frustrating because I'm paying for the max service -- that I'm seeing ads at all makes me dislike the *service* on top of the app

    Annoying. Boot up the program you want to watch, then it tells you you can watch local channels (which you already knew), and you have to repeat the entire process. Almost as bad as their Amart TV app, which is saying a lot - that's_terrible! Quirky, malfunctions at random intervals, works with some shows while others freeze up. Really atrocious programming. If I weren't a Star Trek fan and they weren't the only game in town, I'd cancel tomorrow.
  • Live TV segments issues, can’t save shows, doesn’t remember where left off Apr 18, 2021

    By thijsdecker
    I’m currently doing the commercial plan free preview. I will cancel very soon for three specific reasons. 1.) Going to live TV and selecting one of the segments glitch — Every single time a black screen flashes and it repeats the last 10 seconds before continuing to the next segment. This makes watching previous live TV segments unwatchable. 2.) The app does not remember where I left off, which means I have to start from the beginning of an episode upon coming back to the app. I’m lucky if I remember where I was, so this is another frustrating dealbreaker. 3.) There are a ton of shows, and some of them you can download, which are the only reasons I’ve ranked this two stars. Problem is, I have to scroll through hundreds of shows every time I want to see what I want to watch, because there is no way to “pin”, or otherwise mark a show as something I want to watch later. It is perplexing that there is no “list” or way to save a show to watch later. You really expect me to scroll for five whole minutes to try to find/remember the show that I wanted to watch last week? Biggest dealbreaker - I almost don’t even want to use for free without this feature. Lastly, there is a section called “Keep Watching”, but the shows don’t end up there if you don’t watch enough of them, so quickly opening a show to get it to save there as a hack doesn’t work.

    Tedious. The app on the Android requires you to find your show, click to start, THEN it opens a new window where you repeat the process. I have two Paramount screens open to watch one show. It does not bring up shows similar to what you are watching, instead it pushes shows that they want you to watch. Searching for shows is near impossible. I have subscriptions to five streaming apps. This ranks eight. Yes, I believe there are at least two other apps I don't have that have to better than this.
  • HORRIBLE TIMES INFINITY. Dec 4, 2019

    By VGueli
    I have never written a review on here before but I felt that it would be a disservice to everyone if I didn’t write one on this app. I would have given this thing 0 stars if it would have let me but of course you can’t. I’m seriously considering calling my bank for fraudulent activity and having them refund me the money for this app because having to pay for this monstrosity of an app is definitely against the law. I tried this on my Apple TV, my iPhone, my iPad. Just a HORRIBLE app. I feel bad for the TV shows that have to rely on this app for ratings because I genuinely could not spend another minute of my life battling with this app to continue my show. Every 5 seconds the sound goes out. I have to press the 10 second back button to get it to work. Then it will go to a commercial in the middle of one of the most intense scenes and when it comes back it’s 5 minutes ahead of where it left off. Then when I try and rewind, I have to watch the ads again and then when I get back to the part I want to watch, it makes me watch the ads AGAIN. Then still will skip some of the scene again so basically I keep missing key parts of the show- on top of seeing some parts 17 times because I have to keep hitting the rewind button to get sound. I genuinely wish that I could get the time I spent messing around with this app back. For sanity reasons mainly. Hours were wasted and thanks to this app I now probably need therapy. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS.
  • Hopeful that Paramount will fix it!! Nov 23, 2021

    By Frustrated Subscriber 8906
    I hate to write a bad review but I also hate the fact that I may have to cancel my account. I would have loved for this to be the 5 star review I dreamed it would be but it’s not. Here’s my story; I am a new customer to paramount+. I became a member because they are acquiring all of my favorite shows. I was excited to see the lists of shows they offer and also have the option to download. I use that a lot when I fly. Since getting my account set up, I have had nothing but buffering, fatal errors, and downloads that won’t play. I have sent in tickets through the customer support system in the app with no reply, except for the automated email that they are overwhelmed and will look at it when they can. I’m apparently not the only one having issues. Every issue that pops up says my issue is due to the WiFi or internet that I am using, but that shouldn’t be the case. All of my other streaming accounts work (and I have several). I have used many different devices and WiFi option but nothing helps. I guess my biggest frustration is if you’re going to take exclusive rights to top tv shows, YOU NEED TO HAVE AN APP THAT WORKS. I will end this rant/cry for help. I want this app to be everything I hoped for. Please get it working correctly, if you are reading this Paramount IT. From a hopeful but frustrated customer.

    Ads ads and ads. Either it's something that can be fixed or they at doing it on purpose to force you to buy premium. If your watching a show and close the app for any reason. When you click continue it will go to the previous episode that you already watched. There is no way to press more details or go to episodes from the continue more. I tried to fast forward to the end but after 10 min of ads sometimes the ads will freeze and do the same exact thing. If I wasn't getting this free I'd delete.
  • One of the worst apps I have Dec 6, 2021

    By Lolaney
    I have many streaming apps, some free, some I pay for. Paramount + is a HUGE disappointment!! The Paramount Network streaming app isn’t any better either. Anyways, we were gifted a year of Paramount + and I have to say- if you pay for this service, you must be having a better experience than we are because this app is terrible. When you first open- on the iPhone, iPad Pro, Mac or Apple TV- the screen goes black and stays that way for at least a minute. During playing a show or movie, playback stops, starts, stops, starts, stops. It’s so frustrating. I had thought if this app turned out to be good that we would upgrade the subscription… that will NEVER happen until they fix these issues. So glad we aren’t paying for this crap!!! *My response* to the developers, you cannot be serious with that response… has to be some generic bull crap answer that everyone gets. If the app isn’t working across all the devices, it’s not a user or device issue- it’s an APP ISSUE!!! Y’all need to fix it because I don’t see how in the world you will keep customers this way. Btw, I DID go through all of the trouble shooting info on your web site, tried to contact someone because nothing advised 1. Worked or 2. Applied to my issues. I left a message to speak to someone, but that hasn’t happened and I’m still waiting.

    Live tv freezes a lot when watching on the actual TV. It doesn't matter if it's the content or commercial. I just cancelled my annual renewal because I got an offer for a discount on the annual plan. It's only available to new or returning customers. I don't like to take the back seat for offers when I'd proven myself to be a loyal customer already! People should get equal access to your promotions. You'll lose a bunch of previously loyal customers this was. Not cool.
  • Doesn’t Have Basic Features Apr 20, 2021

    By 🐶🦔
    We can all pretty much agree Netflix is the standard to uphold with streaming platforms. CBS/Paramount is late to the game so why is it that they don’t even have the basic features you expect with streaming services? There are many other streaming platforms that have managed just fine. You literally had a blue print to follow. You know what is expected. How was this released without a “My List” option or “Favorites”? or how about the ability to click the show you were just watching and seeing an episode list option? You can’t do that. You have to search the show again to get to it. The whole point of streaming was to get away from cable and the commercials. This has more commercials than regular tv that you can’t even fast forward through and once you watch a commercial you can’t fast forward/rewind without it taking you back to the same exact commercials you had already sat through. Heaven forbid you forget and have to watch the same 20minutes again plus more commercials. Why are you putting Paramount commercials on here? We already pay you. You have our business. You don’t even have full seasons of your shows. Many people have complained about all of the above and nothing has been changed. I don’t see how this app was actually approved for release let alone getting complaints for over a year and doing nothing.

    Just wanted to provide some details about the terrific CBS All Access coverage of both Champions League and Europa League football. In particular, I greatly value 1) access to all matches on replay, 2) landing pages that do NOT provide match scores (no spoilers), 3) no score updates displayed from other matches while watching replays, 4) ability to advance or go back in time to manage my viewing as I see fit, and 5) match feeds with British announcers that longtime fans have come to know and like best; there is no need to replace the British feeds with "Americanized" broadcasts that include overly talkative play by play announcers and/or poor commentary, or analysts that are compelled to develop story lines for the sake of creating drama; we've seen this done from other networks [ever watch an MLS match?]. And so in summary, I am most appreciative that the critical aspects of football broadcasts listed above are part of the CBS All Access coverage. You should be very proud of the offered service, and I for one am a very satisfied subscriber. Keep up the great work!
  • Great but can improve May 26, 2021

    By incapatible
    I’m giving it a 5 stars because for the majority I am loving the experience, I have all the other popular streaming services but none of them offer all the great reality tv shows that I enjoy as well as full seasons from shows like iCarly and drake and josh, etc. The only thing I’ve noticed is the app has no watch list tab where I can add a bunch of shows/movies and watch them later, this comes in handy for days I cross a movie(s) that I’d want to watch later and make sure I don’t forget about them. Another thing I’ve noticed was when I try and watch something from my device and cast the audio to my HomePod so it can sound louder and have higher quality audio, it thinks I’m AirPlaying it to a tv or something because the “AirPlay now casting” stays in the middle of the screen with bold writing and doesn’t seem to disappear at anytime. Hopefully these issues can be fixed in future updates, but as of now I’m loving the large library of entertainment that I can’t find anywhere else.
  • Great App Nov 26, 2017

    By TV and Movie Enthusiast
    I am enjoying this app immensely. My one-week trial is now over and subscribing to CBS All Access has been a great investment for enjoying the content offered. I am internet-only through my cable company—no TV (and loving it). You get many TV shows with this app—current, new, and old—special presentations, news, and the livestream of CBS broadcasts; including affiliate news casts for your local area. If you cannot catch regularly scheduled CBS shows on the livestream, you can alway watch CBS shows on YOUR time. Very convenient. Picture quality is good to excellent on the TV shows I’ve seen. Audio quality is also good to excellent. I have no buffering issues on my end or their end—I have 100 Mbps internet. The variety of content is excellent. Only a few movies are available for streaming; this is mainly an app for TV shows, news, and CBS special presentations more so than for movies. Anyway, I am very satisfied. The subscription price is reasonable and the content is highly enjoyable! I use this app on my 12.9” iPad Pro, iPhone, and AppleTV-4!
  • Finally CBS has fixed the crashing problem! Oct 5, 2019

    By Scooter Bliege
    I feel that I owe it to CBS and their app design team to say thank you for fixing the issue of the app freezing and crashing every 3 to 5 minutes after watching a program. This started after the last format change and was extremely frustrating. I ended up canceling, then deleting the app, then redownloaded it and paid for the limited commercial fee to make sure that the problem was fixed. Much to my surprise it is working better than ever!! I then upgraded to commercial free, and now can enjoy my favorite programs again!!! Thanks CBS for fixing the problems! My faith has been restored in your network. The following is my written review from when I was extremely disappointed about the app. Just within the past month the app just crashes every 5 to 7 minutes. It happens while watching live TV, or pre-recorded shows. What is causing this? It started right after the last update/format change. Is anybody else having this issue?
  • Unmatched Quality Apr 21, 2020

    By hapl0ne
    This app has allowed me to watch my favorite show’s episodes a few hours after it aired, which is supreme if you miss TV episodes when they air, especially if you miss it due to something you can’t control such as a breaking news announcement interrupting the show or completely taking up the slot that your show was supposed to be on air. For example, I enjoy watching “The Bold and the Beautiful”, which comes on at 1:30 pm EST. But because of the current pandemic, Covid-19, live governors’ updates concerning the novel coronavirus are aired during the slot that “The Bold and the Beautiful” comes on and takes up the ENTIRE slot the show is supposed to be on air. A few hours later (specifically at 5:30 pm EST), the episode is also uploaded to CBS. This has been really helpful in me getting to watch my favorite TV show when I can’t see it on air during its usual time. The visual quality of said episodes on this app is also great, which I sincerely appreciate.

    What’s not to like? I get 120+ television shows I can watch across multiple devices; access to all Star Trek series, including the Animated series; soon to be All Trek All the Time(woohoo); Picard is back; New Twilight Zone coming; smooth streaming on my pad or Mac; the list goes on. The only issues I’ve seen, so far, is with cursors remaining after advertisements while watching on iMac and sometimes the “Done” top left stays after while watching on iPad. If you’re still unsure about Star Trek: Discovery, then take the time to look up House Kor. Notice this isn’t the first time an albino Klingon has been in Star Trek. Find the link between the two and you’ve discovered what makes the Klingon story in this show almost poetic. Discovery is canon Star Trek. It surrounds the Federation and adheres to those same values, just not right away. You have to watch to the end. It’s a great story, and one of the only ones in a long time to make me think *wow, I can’t believe that just happened*. Plenty of those moments; give it a try.

  • Works fine - couple of suggestions Jul 9, 2021

    By GMCer
    Updated review, from 3 to 5 stars for the rollout of My List and other good enhancements. Well done, developers! Thanks for listening. Great app. I have not experienced any performance issues other reviewers noted - all seems fine on that end for me. I would give this 5 stars, but it’s missing a couple of features that are very basic for streaming apps and I was surprised they were missing at launch: 1. My List/Stuff or whatever you want to call it. Please allow me to build a watchlist that is personal to my profile. This helps me and you by making the app more sticky. 2. Recommendation engine for movies! You do this for TV shows, you need to do this for movies. When I open a movie I should see other movies I might like (to ADD TO MY LIST, ahem). Again this helps me and you by drawing me deeper into the app. Thanks and keep up the good work.
  • Pleasantly Surprised… Jan 13, 2022

    By Goofygirl1972
    So we downloaded the app probably about two months ago for Yellowstone and 1883. Caught up on some others and then kind of forgot about it for a couple of weeks. Went back to watch 1883 and nothing would play. Had an error message saying couldn’t stream to our region. Now I live in Hawaii but we are still part of the good old US of A so I didn’t understand the issue. Thought maybe it was just a hiccup, but, nay, it continued. I looked up how to possibly reset and fix it but nothing worked from the FAQ page. I will admit we were a bit frustrated and after reading the reviews I thought we were done with the app. Now at this point you all are wondering why I gave 4 stars and how I was “pleasantly surprised“. I called their customer service and my rep went into the account and reset our account. She told me to wait a couple of hours before I try again and she would also submit a query to the tech department. She had me give her all the info that came up in my account settings page and even the model of my Apple TV. Now it didn’t come up after the two hours or even later that night, but next day, today, it is working beautifully. Mahalo (a proper Hawaiian thank you) Paramount+ for the great shows and the excellent customer service!

    The stand alone platform has a few bugs, but the content is great. At least, I feel like they're bugs. If you select a show from your list, it starts playing right away, you can't select an episode to play. If you want to select a specific episode you have to find the show in the list of shows and then go to series details. Also, you can't pause. You have to exit the show, so... rewind isn't an option. Another glitch is the fact that it doesn't remember my caption settings between uses.

    So far all is good, no lagging, ads are not much of an issue, and always up to date on shows. Great experience so far. Much more to look forward to in the future with the newest shows and episodes to look forward to. I have read other reviews on this application but have not experienced the same issues as others. So far all my experiences have been awesome, and no complaints on my end, all smiles and giggles here. With that being said I hope all can experience the same as I am, for the time....
  • Good, but with a few problems... Mar 13, 2021

    By whydoesitmatter.soso
    So, Paramount+ is amazing and has a lot of good content. Probably my second favorite streaming service other then Peacock because well... Battlestar Galactica. But that doesn’t mean Paramount+ has problems, of course, and I believe I’d like to point out two (this may be outdated soon since they’re updating the app a lot) in which my first problem is probably the fact that their is no Squidward or basically more Spongebob characters that could be profile pictures. Squidward is my favorite character and I wish he was an available profile picture. If you also added more Spongebob profile pictures in general then it would probably be more enjoyable for Spongebob fans that don’t just want Spongebob and Patrick. My second reason is that they actually removed a Spongebob episode (we’re still on the topic of Spongebob xp) called Mid Life Crustacean. Of course, this isn’t a real problem since Prime still has the episode but I still find it a bit weird that you removed it. Honestly, this app is amazing and I give it a solid four until my second review comes in. Thank you for noticing!
  • Paramount plus Oct 20, 2021

    By Jaimedoe
    I will start by saying “ good job” . Then I would like to know why the shows are missing episodes, many of them, so that you really can’t say you watched it all because so much has been omitted. Jag for instance has 10 seasons but you only provide 4 episodes per season and that’s just very annoying to some. Also why can’t you start with season 1 when offering a show. FBI for one and the other FBI show both with no season 1. If they are lost or something oh well but I can’t imagine that’s the case so a reason would be appreciated, or better yet just show them. Il appreciate the programming without commercials and overall your doing great. I also had a problem with another business and had to cancel my debit card. According to my bank statement I was billed for a month of service on the 24 of September but paramount stopped service to me a week ago when I cancelled the card. Why was I not allowed my month of already paid for service? Not a good way to keep customers. stopped service to me
  • Fairly typical TV app, but occasional freezes Feb 2, 2020

    By N5AC
    The CBS all-access works fairly well, can be used to find network programming and watch it and watch live TV. I e had a couple of issues I’d like to see fixed, though. First, after playing a downloaded show for a while (~30 min), the show video will freeze for about 3 seconds while audio continues. Everything work again and the video will start again properly synced with audio, but advanced to the current audio position. Then both will work for a few seconds before the next freeze a few seconds later. I’ve only been able to fix this by killing the app (swipe up) and restart and that doesn’t always work. The second issue is that I have trouble with some shows. For example, I received a push notification that CBS Sunday Morning’s latest episode was available, but when I go to watch, the app says there’s an error and it cannot find the show. Not sure if this is a transient to more serious problem.
  • 6 bucks is a cup of coffee a month... Dec 12, 2017

    By timbukstu
    As a cord cutter this year, I actually prefer the cbs app to the nbc/abc apps. Most of the shows I watch are cbs, so I did the trial for a month. I watch maybe 3-4 stations on cable and my wife and additional four. I don’t mind paying 10 bucks for directvnow, 11 for Netflix, and 6 for CBS, instead of 89 dollars for cable for 125 channels of junk. For now this is as close as ala cart we can get. What I have learned as a cord cutter is that I watch less tv, so that’s a good thing. Binge when I can and spend more time with family, volunteering, and professional development. Watch less, live more, and make beautiful memories. Cut the cord today! App had some connection issues last night other than that no issues when I am binging at odd times. I wouldn’t mind paying 8 dollars for no commercials but I guess that means I value the 10 mins of commercials per hour at 2-4 bucks. I really should upgrade to no commercials now that I think about it, my time is worth more than 2-4 bucks for 10 minutes.
  • A Review on the App - Not the Content Jan 18, 2021

    By veronavixen
    I am very happy with the app and have had no issues watching on my iPad, TV, AppleTV & Roku. I am extremely pleased that now there are profiles; so that my husband & I don’t mess each other up on where we are on shows anymore. That is such an amazing feature to now have. Having the hubs for MTV, CBS, BET, and the other channels content is very helpful when I am looking for something specific like cartoons to cheer me up on the Nickelodeon hub. The only thing that keeps me from a five star review is a watchlist. It would be helpful to be able to add films & TV shows to a watchlist for later viewing. I do find it rather odd that out of all the streaming services available this is the only one I can find that doesn’t have the availability of a watchlist for its users. It’s the only thing this app needs to make it the perfect app. Is that going to be part of a future update? Other then that, I am happy with how this app functions and the fluidity of it.
  • A lot to be desired Jul 22, 2021

    By AndrewC802
    I never really tend to write reviews, especially to write something negative, unless it’s deserved. Over one year since their launch, Paramount+ still has little quirks that have yet to be worked out. I only watch it on my fire stick, and rewinding and fast forwarding can be very difficult at times. I’ve never had this kind of issue with any other streaming service, so it’s only on this platform with the way it’s constructed. The addition of the list that people have been begging for is a nice touch, albeit late since I don’t know how you don’t have a list option from day one. Also playing an advertisement at the very beginning, even just a quick one, when I pay for no commercials at all is rather insulting for them to sneak it in. I still find I get my money’s worth out of the app with the content I watch, hence the four stars. But there’s still much to work on that the developers seem to be in no rush to fix up.
  • Changes Mar 9, 2021

    By ScottCamodity
    I like this app. The old version on my old iPad, used to crash while I was watching it. The only way I could finish the show is if I streamed it to my tv. One of the things I’m happy that doesn’t happen anymore. As for the removal of the schedule of what’s coming on which was still on here a few days ago, not so happy about. There should be a program schedule within the app. Also new, not able to see shows in order as aired on the home page, which was removed a few days ago as well. The ease of not having to search for each program individually within the app is no longer there. One of the features I liked. I get the change, but there needs to be something to replace this for long time users that have been accustomed to this as well as preparing for new users. The ease and functionality for users should be priority within the scope of being innovative, especially for apps that have new content daily.
  • Crashing App Oct 28, 2021

    By FamilyTunes4400
    I was really excited to have this app when I first got paramount plus several months ago on my phone as it would give me a chance to watch movies and shows when I’m doing work without have to turn on my laptop to watch or plug my laptop into my TV with an HDMI cable if I wasn’t using the main TV that was logged into paramount plus. However, in the last 3 to 4 months, this app has done nothing but crash. I have done everything I can think of from updating the app when it needs to be updated, uninstalling it and reinstalling it, and turning my phone on and off. I have tried looking up solutions on the Internet, but they either weren’t very helpful or I wasn’t able to perform the solutions that other people have said might work. With all of the fixes that have been going on in the updates provided, the one thing that has not been fixedIs the crashing of the app on an iPhone. I can’t watch anything without the app crashing two seconds into a TV show or a movie. I then have to constantly re-open the app and find out where I left off in a TV show or movie because it doesn’t restart where I left off. Oh no it starts me from the very beginning and I have to find out where I left off. With all of the updates that are being done I hope that you take a look at the app crashing because that is the biggest issue I have with this and itd be nice to be able to watch something on my phone without it crashing on me every two seconds.

    By Annette Rosa
    I love the content on this app and they seem to be coming out with more shows I would like to watch. Watching it on my phone isn't a problem. BUT on the television though it is horrible. It freezes and starts over. It starts the next episode before finishing the prior one and not by a little. I mean almost 10 mins. And I also have to watch the full episode because pausing or stopping it will force me to start all over. Can barely go back or forward scenes either. It needs a huge update!

    A handful of good shows/movies to watch. However, the subtitles are in tiny font and in BLACK lettering. No other options. Who the hell thought of this and ran with it. Horrible for those living in apartments trying to be considerate to neighbors, unless the remote lives in your hand the entire time. Also, the amount of titles available are vast, but very few actually worth watching. I expected more Paramount. Get it together. Marketplace is too competitive for this.
  • Great options, poor quality Jul 1, 2021

    By Devin Eatman
    I have paramount for my PS4. I’ve had it for a few months now, and it’s just ok. The selection of shows is wonderful, however I have an issue with a very specific glitch. Throughout certain shows, the dialogue will go back 5 seconds and repeat itself. The show keeps rolling with the now delayed dialogue. It eventually skips over the forward dialogue causing you to miss some of what was being said in your show. It’s a constant throughout the show and it does get very annoying. Also, it’s plagued with commercials which also are delayed. The advertisement countdown comes on at the top left of the screen randomly, but it doesn’t go to commercial break. It just has an advertisement countdown while your watching your show. At the end of that countdown, then it goes to commercial. Something else that’s strange, is that for the first two or three months of having this app, I only had a commercial at the beginning of the show, and then no more. Now, it’s full of ads. I understand some ads and I’m fine with that, but Jesus Christ. They are long commercial breaks and there are multiple throughout the show. Like I said, it’s not horrible. It just has some glitches. I’m sure they will be worked out in the future.
  • Frustrating to use Mar 8, 2021

    By Kat Monster
    I had hoped that with the conversion from CBS to Paramount Plus, we would get a redesigned app. I am disappointed that it didn’t turn out that way. I would recommend this service a lot more if there were a couple more features. First it needs a watchlist feature. I cannot stand having to browse for the show that I want to watch every single time instead of going to one place that has all the shows I have earmarked to watch. Also, downloads need to be fixed. And no it is not my device nor my internet connection. This is the only app where after 2 days, anything downloaded pops up with an error message when I try to play it. Supposed to be available for 30 days but really ends up being 2. I am aware that once you start to watch an episode you have a certain amount of time to finish watching before it expires. That is not what I’m referring to. Again, I do not have issues with any other streaming service’s app with downloading and watching episodes later. I live in an area where I don’t have access to at-home internet so this is a very important issue to me. I would use and recommend this app a lot more if these issues were fixed/ added
  • Bring Back CBS All Access Nov 14, 2021

    By ajaxon3
    I downloaded the Paramount+ app when CBS All Access disappeared because all my favorite shows were on CBS. Also, the ad-free streaming was one of the things I really liked about CBS. I can still get all my shows & no-ad streaming on your app, but am constantly getting “fatal error” messages & having to start over when the episodes or shows change. When I opened the app to send a review, I was amazed to see that complaints about the app crashing began 3 years ago. Really? In 3 years, the problem hasn’t been fixed? I have several ad-free streaming apps on my iPad that allow problem-free streaming &, even if it means losing my shows on Paramount+, I don’t intend to continue to pay for a faulty app. So, fix the problem soon or I’m gone! This is no way to run s streaming service & the fact that I don’t have problems like this with my other streaming apps tells me the problems can be solved, so what’s holding you back? Can’t believe you aren’t losing customers due to poor performance. One more thing: don’t tell me to turn off my iPad & reboot it or to reinstall the app; I’ve already done that & it doesn’t solve anything!
  • Great content, frustrating on Apple TV Oct 16, 2021

    By Word baser
    I love the Star Trek content and I can live with the commercials. But the interface with Apple TV is very frustrating. It always requires trial and error to get the menu I want to appear. Sometimes I get the list of genres sometimes I can’t. Thank goodness you added my list. If I select my show from what I’ve been watching, it goes directly to the most recent episode (I think) and starts playing instead of to the episode list. I have no idea if it’s playing what I expected and I’m not willing to wait through commercials to find out. When I select from my list I can pull up episodes but can’t view all text of the episode description (might be an Apple issue - Netflix has the same problem). Then I often have menus not load, an unusable search screen at times, or shows hang up and not load until I back out a screen or sometimes out of the app entirely. I thought the settings menu might help but it only instructs me to update my subscriptions on a different device. Just a super glitchy interface with pain points that I don’t experience on Netflix or other free apps.
  • Strong start Aug 12, 2021

    By Marlana <3
    This app is mostly okay. There are a few major things that are annoying though. 1. No Picture in Picture, you cannot watch your show or movie and send a quick text or set an alarm or anything without pausing/quitting the whole thing. 2. On the home page there is no way to select a series and go to the “series page” to see all the episodes and such. If you select the show it automatically continues watching, and then from there you can only go back to the home and page and it’s a vicious cycle. You have to search the show and select it from that page to be able to look at different episodes. Super inconvenient and didn’t realize the appreciate I had for that with other apps lol. 3. The few times I’ve tried to download shows for an airplane flight, they are 100% downloaded and good to go. You get on the plane you open it up and the app says “no downloads” and then crashes. This happens on repeat. When you land you can see the downloaded episodes again? Ugh. I’ll use it for certain shows but definitely far behind from other steaming apps.
  • The shows are great, but the app could be better Apr 18, 2021

    By The number one stutter
    I like some shows and movies on this app. I’m happy that CBS stepped their game up. The unfortunate side is that, the loading of shows and pages seem to require a lot of bandwidth. This means the show has I’m watching has to do frequent buffering while watching the show. The funny thing is the many commercials shown throughout watching have never needed to buffer. There are some other streaming services that I could recommend to Paramount+ to compare with. Of course, here is not the place to mention them. If they get around to fixing the threshold of bandwidth needed, I’ll change this rating to 5 stars. Also for any future customers, if you can afford the premium service, then do yourself a favor and pay for it. There are a lot of commercial breaks per video and there are a lot of somewhat long commercials. The commercials are repetitive. Paramount+ do not fret, I’m going to continue using the app and watch the shows I like. I recommend fixing how much buffering is needed. Thank you for providing this streaming service. I hope you all are well.
  • Clunky for streaming Jan 7, 2022

    By JS-Ducks!!
    The content and material is great for the paramount+ and showtime package. The showtime app runs flawlessly. The paramount+ for appletv is clunky though. For example: when I sift thru movies the preview of the movie happens (like in Netflix) but when I click the movie to play I still get the audio of the preview which drowns out the beginning parts of the movie. Another example on my appletv is the app will let you slide over to the left where the hyperlinks are to various subcategories but you cannot slide off the ribbon without pressing the link (even if it’s the same link because I went to far over) causing the page to reload. Other then these grievances all around good app. The most annoying is the movie glitch because I have to start the movie->fast forward->exit the app->reload the app->select the movie from my continuing watch section on the home page->rewind->finally enjoy the content. If I know the movie is somewhere else (another app/iMovie purchase) I’ll watch the movie there. Maybe it’s only an appletv glitch??? Not sure but that’s the reason for 3 stars.
  • Live TV segments issues, can’t save shows, doesn’t remember where left off Apr 18, 2021

    By thijsdecker
    I’m currently doing the commercial plan free preview. I will cancel very soon for three specific reasons. 1.) Going to live TV and selecting one of the segments glitch — Every single time a black screen flashes and it repeats the last 10 seconds before continuing to the next segment. This makes watching previous live TV segments unwatchable. 2.) The app does not remember where I left off, which means I have to start from the beginning of an episode upon coming back to the app. I’m lucky if I remember where I was, so this is another frustrating dealbreaker. 3.) There are a ton of shows, and some of them you can download, which are the only reasons I’ve ranked this two stars. Problem is, I have to scroll through hundreds of shows every time I want to see what I want to watch, because there is no way to “pin”, or otherwise mark a show as something I want to watch later. It is perplexing that there is no “list” or way to save a show to watch later. You really expect me to scroll for five whole minutes to try to find/remember the show that I wanted to watch last week? Biggest dealbreaker - I almost don’t even want to use for free without this feature. Lastly, there is a section called “Keep Watching”, but the shows don’t end up there if you don’t watch enough of them, so quickly opening a show to get it to save there as a hack doesn’t work.
  • Hopeful that Paramount will fix it!! Nov 23, 2021

    By Frustrated Subscriber 8906
    I hate to write a bad review but I also hate the fact that I may have to cancel my account. I would have loved for this to be the 5 star review I dreamed it would be but it’s not. Here’s my story; I am a new customer to paramount+. I became a member because they are acquiring all of my favorite shows. I was excited to see the lists of shows they offer and also have the option to download. I use that a lot when I fly. Since getting my account set up, I have had nothing but buffering, fatal errors, and downloads that won’t play. I have sent in tickets through the customer support system in the app with no reply, except for the automated email that they are overwhelmed and will look at it when they can. I’m apparently not the only one having issues. Every issue that pops up says my issue is due to the WiFi or internet that I am using, but that shouldn’t be the case. All of my other streaming accounts work (and I have several). I have used many different devices and WiFi option but nothing helps. I guess my biggest frustration is if you’re going to take exclusive rights to top tv shows, YOU NEED TO HAVE AN APP THAT WORKS. I will end this rant/cry for help. I want this app to be everything I hoped for. Please get it working correctly, if you are reading this Paramount IT. From a hopeful but frustrated customer.
  • One of the worst apps I have Dec 6, 2021

    By Lolaney
    I have many streaming apps, some free, some I pay for. Paramount + is a HUGE disappointment!! The Paramount Network streaming app isn’t any better either. Anyways, we were gifted a year of Paramount + and I have to say- if you pay for this service, you must be having a better experience than we are because this app is terrible. When you first open- on the iPhone, iPad Pro, Mac or Apple TV- the screen goes black and stays that way for at least a minute. During playing a show or movie, playback stops, starts, stops, starts, stops. It’s so frustrating. I had thought if this app turned out to be good that we would upgrade the subscription… that will NEVER happen until they fix these issues. So glad we aren’t paying for this crap!!! *My response* to the developers, you cannot be serious with that response… has to be some generic bull crap answer that everyone gets. If the app isn’t working across all the devices, it’s not a user or device issue- it’s an APP ISSUE!!! Y’all need to fix it because I don’t see how in the world you will keep customers this way. Btw, I DID go through all of the trouble shooting info on your web site, tried to contact someone because nothing advised 1. Worked or 2. Applied to my issues. I left a message to speak to someone, but that hasn’t happened and I’m still waiting.

    It’s as if the developers at Paramount+ took the time to go over every good function that NETFLIX and other streaming services have and said, “Nahhhhhh, too mainstream, let’s go the Bethesda route.” 20% of the time the app crashes, 50% of the time the videos loop backwards and replay scenes while the audio continues forward, and the last 30% of the time the apps functionality is completely unreliable. To be more specific, my List doesn’t pop up when opening the app, 7/10 times there’s a “Fatal Error”, theres never an option to skip intros, the “Next Episode” button stoped showing up, pressing 1 of the 3 middle buttons on screen of back 10 seconds, pause/play, and forward 10 seconds doesn’t work, and even when paying the $10 a month for no ads, THEY STILL MANAGE TO SNEAK SOME ADS IN THERE. So, some advice to the developers. Take some time to go over the architecture of the app and figure out if there’s anything log jamming individual functionality. Check to see if any functions repeat unnecessarily and determine whether or not the current functions are appropriately designed. Redesign the UI of the video format so that it is more conducive to touch capabilities. Finally, stop giving ads when people are paying double the amount you ask for, for your lowest subscription option.

    The main reason I got this is to watch Yellowstone, but of course a Paramount program isn't shown in Paramount plus, very annoying. It can be very glitchy. Has some good content. I don't like how you can't play/pause via Bluetooth and also if you're listening via Bluetooth the volume is very low (and no setting to change that in the app), if watching on a TV it's fine but through a headset it is hard to hear what's being said. If you switch to another streaming service you can hear just fine.

    Like the choices on the app, but it buffers way too much. Hard to watch things. Doesn't matter if I use wifi or data same results. Update:as of 1/13/22 I used the help site and surprisingly it was not helpful. I did all the things and I actually think it got worse. Instead of blaming the customers and our equipment why don't you just fix the app?

    The app stinks for my purposes. I use it to stream live games or watch match replays. I've never gotten through one game without an issue. Sound doesn't match up, video freezes, app crashes. I've tried on Android, fire stick, and Apple products. All the same issues. Every other competitor app works flawlessly (ESPN, FOX Sports, NBCSN). Seems like Paramount and CBS are in over their heads with this. This app is meant for TV shows, not the top sports leagues from around the world.

    This is ridiculous. When the app works it works fine. But it freezes a lot. Then the app needs to be closed to restart. The download should be a true download. Some episodes simply stop and there is not resetting that position. The only thing to do is remove the download and the re-download. Now if I had consistent WiFi, then why would I need to download? It is like the developers have never traveled nor used the other online apps like Prime or Netflix or ITunes. I paid for it. I should be able to download the episode, with error correction, see the episode and then delete it. Simple. But not on this app. When I am on a plane or train and wi-if is spotty, that should not even matter because the episodes are downloaded! And I am traveling overseas now and can’t watch because I am out of the country???? Ridiculous. I downloaded the episodes in the USA, I should be able to watch them overseas. Same as the other apps. CBS, if you want me to pay full price then make Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery on iTunes and I will pay it. But if you want me to use the CBS app and pay you directly at least give me an app that works and works for travel. Not every user is a 20 year old sitting on their mom’s couch. Some of us have jobs, money, choices and are aware of other apps and how this CBS app should function.

    Absolute worst app I have ever used (using on Fire stick). It is ridiculously glitchy to the point where it is unwatchable. Reading through some reviews, other people are having the exact same problem. CBS answers them and yet they don't fix the problem? They're aware of it, so why is it still happening?? If something isn't ready to be rolled out, don't roll it out. Pretty simple. 2 stars rather than 1 for a few good shows.
  • Tons of commercials and growing... May 19, 2021

    By Anqt
    When I first purchased this app to watch some of our family favorites, it was just ok. Love the shows but then we had to constantly restart the show because it would freeze up (it wasn’t an problem with our internet as our apps worked just fine at the same time). Then oh my goodness with the commercials... it started with three stops per episode at about 60 seconds to show about 2 commercials (I thought not too bad, there’s more on regular cable, part of the reason we got rid of it). Then with each season of the show the commercials increased in quantity (5-6 stops at 90 seconds to 2 minutes each stop) and length and we’re still having problems with the shows just stopping in the middle of an episode. This is getting as bad a cable if not worst because you can’t fast forward through them and your watching. More and more commercials instead of your show. I really would like to keep the app but this is becoming incredibly frustrating. If the commercials were cut back to 2 commercials stops an episode at 30-60 seconds it would be better and I would be more inclined to keep the app as I wouldn't constantly feel like I’m watching a constant stream of commercials instead of the show.

    It's gone from frustrating to awful. When casting to my Nest Hub, it will play an ad and then immediately jump to the next episode of the series ... starting with another ad, and then jumping to the next episode. Over and over. The intervention is to not connect to the Hub until after the ad plays, but I don't have to do that with any other app. This is particularly frustrating because I'm paying for the max service -- that I'm seeing ads at all makes me dislike the *service* on top of the app

    Annoying. Boot up the program you want to watch, then it tells you you can watch local channels (which you already knew), and you have to repeat the entire process. Almost as bad as their Amart TV app, which is saying a lot - that's_terrible! Quirky, malfunctions at random intervals, works with some shows while others freeze up. Really atrocious programming. If I weren't a Star Trek fan and they weren't the only game in town, I'd cancel tomorrow.

    Tedious. The app on the Android requires you to find your show, click to start, THEN it opens a new window where you repeat the process. I have two Paramount screens open to watch one show. It does not bring up shows similar to what you are watching, instead it pushes shows that they want you to watch. Searching for shows is near impossible. I have subscriptions to five streaming apps. This ranks eight. Yes, I believe there are at least two other apps I don't have that have to better than this.
  • HORRIBLE TIMES INFINITY. Dec 4, 2019

    By VGueli
    I have never written a review on here before but I felt that it would be a disservice to everyone if I didn’t write one on this app. I would have given this thing 0 stars if it would have let me but of course you can’t. I’m seriously considering calling my bank for fraudulent activity and having them refund me the money for this app because having to pay for this monstrosity of an app is definitely against the law. I tried this on my Apple TV, my iPhone, my iPad. Just a HORRIBLE app. I feel bad for the TV shows that have to rely on this app for ratings because I genuinely could not spend another minute of my life battling with this app to continue my show. Every 5 seconds the sound goes out. I have to press the 10 second back button to get it to work. Then it will go to a commercial in the middle of one of the most intense scenes and when it comes back it’s 5 minutes ahead of where it left off. Then when I try and rewind, I have to watch the ads again and then when I get back to the part I want to watch, it makes me watch the ads AGAIN. Then still will skip some of the scene again so basically I keep missing key parts of the show- on top of seeing some parts 17 times because I have to keep hitting the rewind button to get sound. I genuinely wish that I could get the time I spent messing around with this app back. For sanity reasons mainly. Hours were wasted and thanks to this app I now probably need therapy. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS.

    Ads ads and ads. Either it's something that can be fixed or they at doing it on purpose to force you to buy premium. If your watching a show and close the app for any reason. When you click continue it will go to the previous episode that you already watched. There is no way to press more details or go to episodes from the continue more. I tried to fast forward to the end but after 10 min of ads sometimes the ads will freeze and do the same exact thing. If I wasn't getting this free I'd delete.

    Live tv freezes a lot when watching on the actual TV. It doesn't matter if it's the content or commercial. I just cancelled my annual renewal because I got an offer for a discount on the annual plan. It's only available to new or returning customers. I don't like to take the back seat for offers when I'd proven myself to be a loyal customer already! People should get equal access to your promotions. You'll lose a bunch of previously loyal customers this was. Not cool.
  • Doesn’t Have Basic Features Apr 20, 2021

    By 🐶🦔
    We can all pretty much agree Netflix is the standard to uphold with streaming platforms. CBS/Paramount is late to the game so why is it that they don’t even have the basic features you expect with streaming services? There are many other streaming platforms that have managed just fine. You literally had a blue print to follow. You know what is expected. How was this released without a “My List” option or “Favorites”? or how about the ability to click the show you were just watching and seeing an episode list option? You can’t do that. You have to search the show again to get to it. The whole point of streaming was to get away from cable and the commercials. This has more commercials than regular tv that you can’t even fast forward through and once you watch a commercial you can’t fast forward/rewind without it taking you back to the same exact commercials you had already sat through. Heaven forbid you forget and have to watch the same 20minutes again plus more commercials. Why are you putting Paramount commercials on here? We already pay you. You have our business. You don’t even have full seasons of your shows. Many people have complained about all of the above and nothing has been changed. I don’t see how this app was actually approved for release let alone getting complaints for over a year and doing nothing.

    Download location set to internal storage, no way to select SD card. I'm on the trial so I will be canceling. Netflix, hulu, Disney Plus allow you to select the download location. I love how they respond with cookie cutter answers to help the user "troubleshoot". How about you take some initiative and solve the problems that people are listing. Three and a half stars for a multi-billion dollar corporation is pretty pathetic.
  • Truly Terrible Feb 26, 2020

    By bka15
    I really hate writing bad reviews, I work in customer service and bad reviews are the worst! However! Because you have to purchase the service to see Picard, and there is no other way, this makes having a terrible service even worse. To create an amazing show, to make it available only if you pay monthly for this service, and then have said service be incredibly slow and glitchy to the point of being practically inoperable is truly a way of showing you care little for your subscribers beyond their money. This is truly the most poorly functioning streaming service I have encountered and I struggle through Prime Tv often. Not only is it incredibly slow, when I watch shows it will get stuck on a commercial loop. It will go to commercial break, go back to the last two seconds before break, then back to a commercial break stopping to try to load for several seconds between each commercial. This will repeat endlessly until I restart completely. At that point, even if I check for updates, turn it of and on again, turn the entire system off and on again, all basic troubleshooting, if you attempt to resume the show it goes strait back into the loop. I am truly frustrated and disappointed and despite my absolute love of all things Picard and Patrick Stewart I will sadly chose to no longer toss money into something that does not work.

    It took a lot for me to swallow the cost of the service, but I finally caved because my family wanted to see some of the exclusive shows. Could we at least, in return for our paid subscription, get an app that doesn't constantly crash and freeze on ads? The user interface is not good, and the player controls are very poorly done. I realize I could escape most of this by paying for the higher tier, but I shouldn't have to do that. Please listen to our comments and fix the issues in this app.
