Watch full length CBS shows on iOS, Windows Phone and Android 8 days after initial airing
So you missed Blue Bloods and you want to check in on how the Reagan family kept New York City safe for another week. But your digital video recorder is stuck at 100% full (you just had to tape all of those Breaking Amish and Sister Wives episodes, didn't you). Well, you could hope that the latest episode is available on demand, or you could simply fire up the CBS app.

Originally made available in March for iOS users, the app failed to excite as a number of one-star reviews lamented the lack of full episodes. But CBS has updated the app for iOS and is launching companion apps for Windows Phone and Android. Now, users of these three platforms will be able to watch full episodes 8 days after they were initially aired. The app will contain the latest 5 episodes during the season.

There is a caveat for those who watch Under the Dome. This show is not available on the app but can be streamed from Amazon Prime Instant Video, or purchased as a paid download from Amazon Instant Video.

Besides most of the prime time shows on CBS, which includes hits like the Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, the app will also show some blasts from the past such as Macgyver, Star Trek and Perry Mason.
