CBS Sept. 15 announced that its subscription streaming service, CBS All Access, is now available on Google’s Android TV.
CBS All Access ($5.99 monthly) offer episodes from current, previous and classic TV shows on demand, as well as the ability to stream local CBS affiliates in more than 85 markets across the U.S., including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia.
CBS hasn’t disclosed subscriber data for All Access, but says subs are watching twice as much content as non-subs on digital platforms.
“Bringing the service to Android TV gives viewers more flexibility and access to … programming on whichever platform they choose,” Marc DeBevoise, EVP and GM of CBS digital media, said in a statement.
CBS CEO Les Moonves last week told analysts that he expects NFL games to soon be available on All Access.
All Access currently offers seasons of 19 primetime shows with episodes available the day after they air, including “NCIS,” “Scorpion,” “The Good Wife,” and “NCIS: New Orleans,” among others.
The line-up includes full past seasons of 10 current series, including “The Good Wife,” “NCIS” and “Hawaii Five-0,” plus more than 6,000 episodes of classic TV shows including “Star Trek,” “Cheers,” “Fraiser” and “CSI: Miami.”
The service also offers access to “The Grammy Awards,” “The Academy of Country Music Awards” and “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.”
The service is also available online at CBS.com, through Chromecast, Roku players and Roku TV.
