The US TV Network CBS launched its streaming service in 2015 in partnership with ViacomCBS, its parent company.
The service flaunts its massive four million subscribers and an ever-increasing catalog of licensed shows, movies, and original content like Star Trek: Discovery. MTV, NFL football games, and kids programming through Nickelodeon are all cherry on the cake.
Today the service has expanded internationally in Canada and Australia (known as 10 All Access there). Plus, Viacom has announced that the service will be expanding further internationally sometime in 2021.
Where Is CBS All Access Available?
Initially launched in the US, CBS All Access further expanded in Canada (2018), and then in Australia (2019), partnering with the country’s Network 10, where it is named as 10 All Access.
ViacomCBS has declared the expansion of its services internationally in 2021. It is expected that the company might use the Paramount Plus branding, although there are no official announcements yet.
How Much Does CBS All Access Cost?
CBS All Access comes with two pricing plans, where one is with ads and the other is without ads.
The Limited Commercials plan (with ads), costs $5.99 a month or $59.99 per year.
The premium plan or the Commercial Free plan (without ads), costs $9.99 a month or $99.99 per year. Please note, that these prices don’t include any state taxes that may apply. Also, there is no difference in the availability of content to stream.
How Do I Get CBS All Access?
Like any other streaming service, you just need to buy a subscription from the official website. You will get a seven-day free trial to decide whether you want to continue the subscription or not. If not, then don’t forget to cancel the subscription before the seventh day, else you will be charged for a month.
What Devices Does It Support?
CBS All Access allows you to stream on just about any web browser, Android and iOS phones and tablets via the mobile apps that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
There are apps available for other streaming devices, including the Amazon Fire TV sticks, TVs, and set-top boxes, and most of the Roku devices. CBS All Access is also accessible on the Apple TV set-top box, Android TV-based set-top boxes, and TVs, plus it is supported by Chromecast dongles and TVs.
You can stream on some Samsung and Vizio smart TVs. Also, there are applications for all versions of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
