Garbage Media player The content is what you would expect from CBC. Every single time I attempt to watch a video with this app the video freezes and when on the second attempt it will play through but if I pause the app I loose my spot on the video. I have to re watch the ads(assuming that they don't freeze). It so close to being a great App just fix your media player or don't link videos. It ruins the experience of reading the news in the 21st century. I do like the CBC and this app has a great design!
They need to pay attention to how they write. Very nice to get the news on my phone like this. App runs very well. Only problem, you would think people who write for a living would have a little knowledge of grammer, spelling, punctuation etc. They are blasting out these articals so quickly they constantly say "on" when "off" is what is only logically ment or leave words out of the artical as if part was just a cut and paste from somewhere else and they missed a word in the cut. A tiny bit of proof reading would go a long, long way for CBC.
Are my taxes paying for this garbage? All that taxpayer money and they can't make a simple app work. Streaming clips is a terrible experience at best. A lot of work needs to be done. This is why you shouldn't hire liberal arts students as IT personnel.
Provides the news, but... Why isn't the top story section sorted by time? When I scroll through the list of stories I'll sometimes find newer stories near the bottom of the list, rather than the top of the list... Other than that, provides access to CBC news
No homepage widget? I really wanted to have cbc news as a widget next to my bbc news widget. Am I missing a setting somewhere that would let me set it up as a widget?
News is what it is, but The App itself is pitiful. Too many ads. Chromecast support is hit and miss with the National. Hardly ever works right on Friday and Saturday evenings. Too many bugs and not enough fixes! Don't expect anyone at CBC cares.
