CBS launched their All Access service back in October, 2014 for $5.99 per month, offering subscribers new TV shows the day after airing, access to thousands of library titles, and live-streaming in select markets. But while customers have been paying to access the content over-the-internet they have still been subject to commercial interruptions.
That all changed this week when CBS announced an ad-free option for $9.99 per month, $4 more than their standard $5.99 rate.
However, CBS’s live-streaming from local stations (now covering over 150 markets), will continue to have the same commercials as the live network broadcasts.
CBS All Access should be getting a boost early next year when a new Star Trek series debuts on the service. The series will be aired week-by-week rather than launched in its entirety as do series on Netflix and Amazon (CBS confirmed this), and will be exclusive to All Access with the exception of the premiere that will air on broadcast television.
All Access is available on Android and iOS devices, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Roku, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, as well as PCs via internet browsers. See all the system requirements here.
