    Great news for first gen aftv owners rooted and on Amazon os 3.0. I just installed it! Thanks for the info for Super bowl 50.

    I get local CBS in my area but audio is only stereo & not 5.1 surround. Any idea if the app will provide 5.1 audio? I will check some videos later and see. If it does, then firetv will be an improvement for me.

      Well I checked some vids and all are stereo. But I noticed the vids were sourced from YouTube so that’s understandable. But I probably shouldn’t expect 5.1 since most other streaming apps are only stereo. Only Netflix has 5.1,while Hulu, disneyapp,espnapp,etc are all only in stereo.

    The important question for my wife is will the CPS app show the Superbowl commercials, too?

    Hope you do a review on the CBS Sports App. Curious how it was. I am in Canada so I didn’t even bother trying
