CBC TV iPad App Released in App Store

by on March 20th, 2011

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

If you’re a fan of CBC programming, you’ll be happy to hear the CBC TV iPad app has been released in the App Store. Following in the footsteps of CityTV, and Global, CBC has joined the foray. Here’s the app description:

Canada Lives Here! The hottest CBC programs including Dragons’ Den, Republic of Doyle, Being Erica, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Rick Mercer Report and more are available right at your fingertips, for free and on-demand with the CBC TV App for iPad. Whether you missed an episode of your favourite series or want to catch it again, the CBC TV App has you covered โ€“ whenever you want and wherever you are.


– Enjoy full-length episodes, with new episodes updated automatically

– Browse the CBC Television schedule at the touch of a button to keep on top of your favourite programs

– Your opinion matters! In our “About” section, use the feedback form to request new features or report performance issues to help us provide you with the best entertainment experience, every time

*This video content is only available within Canada

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.

Click here to download the CBC TV iPad app. It’s free.

    This would be a nice app, but it doesn’t recognize the fact that I am in Canada and my settings are all correct. I am not the only user suffering this judging from the comments on the Itunes store.

  • Aloombox

    It’s very nice but wish it would support Airplay video, it does audio only and that too not for all programs.

  • guest

    Another CBC app? I think I’d prefer if they combine the apps. Now I have CBC News, CBC Radio, and CBC TV on my iPad. One combined app would be nicer.

  • Andrew

    Now we just need CTV! (and discovery and history and MTV would be nice too ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  • Bqualley1

    I cannot get it on Vancouver Island.

  • Anonymous

    All three desperately need to work with AirPlay!! Anybody know if ABC’s app down in the states supports AirPlay?

  • Deft

    Not rec that in in ca… Wtf, booooo

  • bibliokyle

    wish it was accessible for iphones and ipods.

  • Us user in can

    As with the citytv app… I can’t even find on the store as My iTunes account is an American one from when I used to live there. Even tho I am in Canada right now. And to top it off, I can’t use any of my American tv apps cause they can see I’m in Canada. I wish CBC/citytv/global would make it available to users who are visiting the country but may buy it elsewhere ๐Ÿ™

  • Murraycorey

    I have all the latest hardware and new apps form app store – still no cbc programs to be seen in Vancouver Canada

  • Presto

    I get no audio. ย  I have loaded the most recent version. Uninstalled and re-installed multiple time. ย The French version tou.tv works fine. ย  Why can’t CBC tv work properly

  • My CBC app has no sound, I live, work, and do all my Internet in Canada. What can I do to fix this?

  • John

    Has not worked for over a week cannot connect nothing wrong with my connection. That’s ok can use Ctv app just fine.

  • Linda A

    I cannot download the cbc app, I have had my tablet checked out and there is nothing wrong with it, when I go to the cbc site click install it isn’t even in the store. This is very frustrating. Please fix it or contact me to help.

  • Paul H

    Just downloaded the CBC TV app on my iPhone. Video works fine, but there’s NO SOUND what-so-ever. Reinstalled, turned off my phone and back on, still doesn’t work. No sound includes the advertisements

  • Disappointed

    Since downloading the newest update for the iPad cannot open any TV programs. The ads come in slowly but no programming

  • Jim

    I am sorry to say that my copy of the app on my iPad does not have sound. This is the second version that has had this problem. Perhaps we should give up on CBC. I did like their news. Too bad! Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I’ll be removing the app and trying something else, if not.
