This app is almost perfect. Able to watch tons of olymic events with great comentary. Have had almost none of the problems other reviewers are mentioning. One day we had resolution issues for a could hours and one other day we couldn't get video to play until we restarted our phones. Otherwise the experien e has been great. App used on a Note 8 and iPhone 6
I'm pleased to be able to watch the events and CBC does a pretty good job of their app. A couple of things that would make the experience better is to allow me to change the times to my time zone. I'm never sure when stuff is coming on based on what I see in their schedule. It's also a lot of fiddling around to get to the information about the athletes, etc. There's no search option as far as I can see that deals with this. For those of us without TV service, it would be useful if we could stream this on our larger devices.
The app gives you pop-up notifications if you allow it. If a pop-up looks interesting and you click on the notification the app takes you to the home page. You then have to dig through the apps confusing menu layout to find the subject matter brought to your attention by the pop-up. Further, the sports schedule could be far more user friendly and straight forward. Otherwise it's a pretty okay app.
Ads cover the bottom of every page, making the last item impossible to see, the app is clunky and difficult to navigate, scores and schedule seem incapable of being up to date, and they insist on putting the results of events in the replay title. So there is literally 0 reason to watch, you will already know the outcome. I would give negative stars if I could.
Paired figure skating final on right now Live. App wont let me view. Has no problem showing their advertisements before event only to shut off viewer after playing ads. Then you have to view ads again only to find out live event wont play. You suck again CBC Olympics app!
Replaced cbc sports, plays ads when you do anything (change stream or back out). Taxpayer funded broadcasting system that plays more ads than their competitors is part if the reason for the low rating. Unacceptable. Streaming quality is awful. Tried different devices , different internet sources, and at best its still blurry. Awful quality and service.
