Update 1: the app is not detecting some users as being in Canada, even though they are. Let us know if you are affected.

My initial tests with this app were quite positive, although content is limited right now. As CBC programming progresses further into the season, more episodes will be added. This is a fantastic way to catch up on your favourite CBC shows. There are some CBC ads and commercials, but other than that, this is a decent way to put our tax dollars at work.
