  • No borders Jul 15, 2020

    By Farginfrugal
    A country that can’t draw a line and hold it will soon lose sight of that line. Don’t politicians know despite who may vote for them again that they have a duty to do what is right now for those that voted for them last. Shame!
  • New model or MUDDLE? Oct 11, 2020

    By Can/Am gran
    Can not find what I wish to read - totally confusing to your elderly reader. No directions given to “ sort “ this app or find relevant sections. Disappointed once more! Many months later still can not find tech or health news. When video is done have to close out app and reopen to view next item! FRUSTRATING! Over a year later — still searching for tech and health sections!

    unable to share to Facebook / Messanger / even copy the link. Probably will stop using it for the unbiased stories it always gave if I can't tell my friends about them. It had always been a more impartial reporting of U.S. news than the U.S. outlets! Sad that an APP could disconnect those of us seeking Truuth. thank you for your attention. In threse trying times it is a welcome light in the darkness.
  • Better than the USA NEWS Feb 28, 2020

    By Cindera228
    My in-laws outside of Montreal and when we go up see the family, they always have CTV on. I am amazed on how CTV shows a different type of news vs the US. I have downloaded the apt to my cell phone and my IPad so I can watch it in Syracuse,NY. They are shocked when I tell them about things we see here the CTV reports a wider number of news than the Major channels in the states.

    You just lost a regular customer using you new app. I don’t like not being able to just read the news as was available using you previous app. Not a smart move. Grant

    Still taking in the new app format but some photo captions are hidden when appearing at the bottom of an article. Would appreciate the option to skip an ad after a few seconds, far too repetitive and annoying when viewing multiple videos.
  • Good national news coverage. Aug 13, 2019

    Often very timely and events well covered. Would like to see more news items right up front without having to seek items.

    Really appreciate the news, full coverage, detailed and current. Don't like all the additional side and bottom screens running additional information. Visually too much. Thanks for the great reporting.

    As a Canadian ex pat I receive the Ottawa Citizen from my home town daily, however Sunday has been the one day a week I miss happenings on a local and country wide scale. This app has filled that void both informatively and visually. Very much appreciated 😀

    It shows me too many articles from ONTARIO even though I chose to only see articles from Vancouver and Vancouver Island and BC.
  • User experience takes the back seat... Apr 22, 2019

    By SaskGuy72
    Another great example of what happens when user experience and user-centric design takes the back seat (or gets stuffed in the trunk)... not understanding how your users actually navigate and engage with your app = loss of trust and loss of users. In the old version the navigation was relatively straightforward... you could add or remove (and reorder) news categories... the interface was consistent... there was a non-standard (but still usable) option to share articles (no idea why the standardized iOS sharing interface wasn’t adopted)... and all that has been thrown away in this new version. Top news is now almost entirety dominated by videos (which I assume is to try to increase ad revenue)... the previous categories are now under ‘News’ and require scrolling up... and down... and up... and down... no option to sort or reorder them... while the ‘Local’ news is now its own section and you scroll left and right to move between locales...?! Did you app designers and developers work in two separate silos?! Bottom line... great example of an app that was decent and user friendly falling victim to corporate greed and the pursuit of revenue at the expense of users... lemme tell you what is more expensive... NO USERS!! ...nicely done Bell Media!

  • New update is beyond confusing! May 3, 2019

    By Foghorn Leghorn26
    I never write reviews, however after using this app religiously for years, I am compelled to leave a review out of utter frustration at trying to navigate their new layout. I like to think I am tech savvy, and again I have used this app for years, so understand the general layout. That said the new layout is sooooooo frustrating to navigate. I have no idea what category the story is from - local vs entertainments vs national. I don’t know whether I am opening a video or article. Please update and have your users in mind, better yet revert back to one of your older layouts. This is terrible!!!!

    Horrible mess since last major update. Interface is incredibly frustrating. In News section, you have to scroll all the way back to top to change category. If you mistakenly hit back arrow, will exit app -- and then change view when you return to it. Cannot disable crappy My Feed section -- which it always defaults to -- or configure it in a way that makes it worthwhile.

    Too many videos, too many ads. Some news articles have little or no text, they are video only. It is slow to load and occassionally stable and hangs. Screen rotates when you aren't expecting it and won't rotate when you want it to.

    Crashes whenever I cast a show. Cast continues but when I try to re-open the app when cast is active, app crashes instsntly. No crashing when not casting. Only started with most recent update.
  • Selection bias Oct 21, 2020

    By stupidrequest
    Do you really think those of us who still want to know truth and therefore use our brains to analyze news stories don’t recognize the fact that you only state negative “bits” about the U.S. President. Come on at least try to look objective and print some of the positive news about him. Or at least print the two sides of a story.

    Too many ads to suffer through to get to "news". Access to royalty-bearing Programming is one thing but access to news is another.

    I have been a summer resident of Nova Scotia for thirty years, and obviously am vested in our community and beyond in Canada (where I watch CTV news). This app provides me with a great deal of useful information.

    What a wonderful way for persons not living in Canada to receive news from Canada. The world gets smaller when one attempts to learn about others on Earth.

    Overall like it...the one issue i have which could be an Android issue is app cant be set as default app for links like other news apps. For example I click on link in txt it opens Chrome instead of CTV app.
  • Love it but... Jan 29, 2021

    By jgb0109
    As a Canadian living the USA I love watching the news on demand with the app. But, the volume on the commercials is 10x louder than the show. Drives me crazy always having to adjust the volume every times a commercial comes on. Please fix this.
  • Love it but Jun 8, 2018

    By Sfhcxkjx
    I would rate it 5 stars if it happened Iphone X support. As someone who lives abroad it's great to get notifications from CTV for news of back home but it would be even better if the app supported the Iphone X's screen

    Buggy. Slow. Great at playing ads (over and over and over and over...), but terrible at transitioning back to content. Stalls out and have to restart session and a new set of ads that play over and over and over and over...
  • Why Jun 10, 2020

    By tired of waiting in Alberta
    Why is this Liberal Prime Minister not full filling his own promises. I’m 78 and handicapped . I have filled out my income tax returns for 59 years, never been in jail. I live on my social security and old age pensions, get a GST rebait and also get a little rent from my only investment. I’m sure I was told that because I filed an income tax Return I didn’t have to fill out an application for assistance. I’m still waiting for the money
