CBS has been absent from streaming services like Hulu and Netflix for quite some time, although they recently joined Hulu in January. The network has never really bought into the whole streaming fad in the first place, which has no doubt made a few streaming customers upset, since CBS has a handful of good shows that are just dying to be watched over the internet. However, CBS has launched their own streaming app for iOS that gives you full episodes eight days after they’ve first aired.
While most primetime television shows will be available after eight days from its airing, daytime and late night programming will be available within 24 hours after the initial airing. The app will include shows like CSI, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
The app will also include a feature called Live Social Feeds, which allow you to “join the conversation” about various CBS programs and you can read live feeds that are curated for each show. You can also check out the Primetime Schedule to find out what’s coming up on CBS and even set reminders for single episodes or special programming.
The app is only available for iOS devices, but CBS says that they’re planning versions for Android and Windows 8, although we’re not sure if that will include Windows Phone 8 as well, but there was definitely no mention of BlackBerry. The app is a free download, and it’s available now in the iTunes App Store.
