It seems like every television network in the world has their own app these days. CBS was actually one of the first networks to take the full plunge. Today, CBS offers their own stand alone service called CBS All Access. It’s similar to Netflix or HBO Now where you subscribe for a monthly fee and get access to everything the network has to offer. The service is worth it on it’s own just for NCAA Basketball streaming action early in the year. Let’s go through some of the details of the service below.
UPDATE: 12/5/2016 – CBS All Access now gives you access to NFL games in your region! Try it out this weekend!
How Much Does CBS All Access Cost?
The service is about $6 per month right now. Sometimes services like Netflix and CBS change their pricing on a whim so that number may fluctuate! Usually they grandfather in pricing for longtime customers but be sure to check CBS for the most current price of CBS All Access.
