Re: Can we get CBS Catch up yet?

You have to ask CBS. Roku does not create channels for 3rd party providers. They merely provide the platform for others to create content.

Re: Can we get CBS Catch up yet?

So NO is the answer for anyone with same question

I also created "Chris' Streaming Platform", and none of the providers create apps for that either 😆

You’ll have to work harder to get your sales numbers up before content providers notice you.

So Roku need to improve their sales before users get CBS catch up. Got it!

If people care about that app, then sure.  (This is the first I've heard of that one - I see many other apps with CBS in them, but not one with "catch up" in it.) Roku currently has about 70 million subscriptions and each content provider can decide whether they want to target those particular people, based on sheer numbers, demographics, etc.  Meanwhile, there are thousands of other channels.

Re: Can we get CBS Catch up yet?

Just what is CBS Catch up and what other devices support it? Is it official CBS or something illegally playing CBS shows? As far as I know, the only official CBS apps are the CBS app for TV/satellite subscribers, and Paramount+.

This is standard UK TV app on all smart TVs, and advertised daily on UK TV

Is there an app for any other device? If not, then it looks like CBS is only making it available as a YouTube channel. Send a comment to CBS if you want them to create an app, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. They probably want you to pay for Paramount+ or have CBS through a cable/satellite subscription.
