CBS All access has really gone downhill! You pay to be able to watch an episode the same day & now there is a 24 hour delay. What’s up with that? Why the change? Look for another provider or a DVR service. This is unacceptable! I’m moving on!!!!

CBS All Access is overpriced for content that you already pay for with your cable subscription. To pay on top of that for only a few shows i like isn't worth it.

Over priced for what you get. This should be included with your cable bill. Nothing worth paying for.

CBS all access in my opinion I think that it isn't worth your money. They are a good product, however it is not a necessity. Regular CBS (which is just the free version of CBS all access) is just as good, even though it doesn't have past seasons of shows.

We used this service when we lived in my parents basement. I liked that you could watch all the episodes of "Big Bang Theory." The stream speed was so-so. There was a fair amount of buffering and the ads were repetitive.

Only a limited amount of shows, but the shows that they do have are good. Still, there are many commercials which do lessen the experience.

I chose to get CBS All Access because DIRECTV couldn’t come to an agreement with Nexstar, the owner of CBS about cost of airing. Shame on CBS All Access to force their political views on the consumer. I started watching The Good Fight an original CBS All Access series and was bombarded with the liberal opinions of the creator of this series. I like the series, the stories and characters but strongly dislike the biased political content. Not every consumer is going to be on the same page as another person but this series takes it to a new level of extreme liberal, racism implications and deliberate bashing of our President of the United States. Will probably be leaving DIRECTV to another company that has CBS so I won’t have to pay this despicable service anymore! My friends and family feel the same way. Create entertainment without shoving your views down the throats of the consumer!

Decided to do 7 day free preview and using android on a new Sony tv it buffered constantly. Checked for fix online and found recommendations to go though Amazon channels and that fixed buffering issue. Out of town due to funeral and was unable to cancel on time. Actually had two charges, Amazon Prime cancelled and refunded my payment, CBS all access told me they never give refunds. Have service for a month now but won’t watch due to buffering issue.

They really do not care about their customers at CBS all access. I forget to cancel my trial by 2 days and hadn't used the account since the first day I got it. They refused to give me a refund. I know most other companies, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Video would have given me a refund because they use commonsense and quality service to make their profit, instead of trickery like CBS.

We did get to use this option for viewing a few shows. The technology is solid. Is Stable. Although we used the option for "free episodes", the app seems like a decent offering to also view additional content.
