Catch all your favorites shows in HD with the new CBS App for Windows 8

CBS app

For those who are a fan of NCIS, Elementary, or any of the other CBS Television series we've got some good news. CBS has released a Windows 8 version of their CBS app.

The app lets you stream full, HD quality episodes of your favorite shows on your Windows 8 tablet, laptop or desktop. The app covers Prime Time, Day Time and Late Night series providing photo galleries and mini-clips as well as the full episodes.

CBS app

Delays for show access range from twenty-four hours to about a week depending on the material. The CBS app is a little on the bland side but is a handy way to catch up on episodes you've missed or to re-visit favorites.

The CBS app is free and available for both Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT devices. You can pick up the CBS app here in the Windows Store.  

Oh... and for the sports fans in the room, don't forget CBS offers the CBS Sports app for our Windows Phone 8 devices that you can pick up here in the Windows Phone Store.

Catch all your favorites shows in HD with the new CBS App for Windows 8

Sweet! This app itself was released awhile ago, but with this update they FINALLY added full episode watching! I'm not what they were thinking releasing the app with only clips and schedules. Better late than never...

Here's a dumb question, probably: would it be a good idea to hook this up to my tv via HDMI and play shows from CBS.com on my big screen? Would it still look HD?

Sorry, I don't know this, but can we stream these shows for free? Or do we need some sort of subscription?

W8 really needs more apps.  A bunch of great hardware was announced recently with those new Dells and the new Surfaces, I hope the expansion of 8 inch devices coming drives devs to produce apps.  I also hope MS has some announcements to accompany the 8.1 rollout, and that Nokia has produced some apps in house to accompany its 2520. 

I had just been using the desktop IE browser on my RT tablet to watch CBS shows.  This will be nicer obviously.

The rub against this app is that you don't get to watch the FULL episode and who knows what else.  This app gets a 1.9 rating out of 5. I might have to pass for now. 
And this link is bad too. Seems to fit with the reviews of this application.

I'd love to see a full Xbox TV app that streams Live T.V., D.V.R./TiVo and content across all your Microsoft devices, now that would be awesome.
