CbsCBS has a new app that allows U.S. viewers to watch full ad-supported HD episodes of television shows from the network, typically one week after they air.

The company launched an app earlier this year that shows second-screen content synchronized with whatever the user is watching.

Watch full episodes of your favorite CBS shows with the CBS app for iPad and iPhone! Enjoy primetime, daytime and late night episodes from America’s Most Watched Network.

Catch NCIS, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, How I Met Your Mother, Survivor, Elementary, The Young And The Restless, The Late Show with David Letterman and many more. Use the ‘My CBS’ feature to be notified when episodes of your favorite shows have been added to the app.

CBS is a universal app available free on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Torrents show up two hours BEFORE broadcasting Pacific time, since the torrent shows up right after the Eastern broadcast.

I get why movies aren't released on iTunes, etc. as they are in the theaters (because one purchase could be viewed by many) but that rationale doesn't apply to TV broadcasts (as it is, one person could share it with many).

Networks, and premium channels, should simply make their stuff available immediately, as it's broadcast, on services like iTunes.

Just don't get it, do they?

One week delay? Really?
Anyone who doubts the existence of dinosaurs only needs to watch the decision-makers at the three networks flounder. They provide all the evidence needed to back up the (continuation of the) fossil record.

If it is adsupported it should be live like ESPN or next day like most of the networks. One week is ridiculous.

Luckily with my DirecTV dvr and my Slingbox, I can watch pretty much anything at my discretion.

To be fair, network programmings are subsidized by cable/satellite carriers and network affiliates. So offering shows online immediately (with fewer commercials to boot) would undermine network's ability to negotiate.

Although one week seems a bit long (ABC and NBC apps offer shows the next day), it is an encouraging trend nevertheless. Fox is now the sole holdout among major US networks as ABC, CBS, CW, and NBC all offer primetime shows on mobile. And frankly, I am in no hurry to watch any of the shows on CBS.

This move also undermines Hulu, which is largely dependent on Fox, international programmings, and strong device support to sustain its value.

I've never really understood the draw of Hulu. Marginal content, full of ads, and it requires a subscription.

DirecTV already gives me all of that.

As a result, Apple currently sells both the ninth- and 10th-generation ...
