CBS All Access Comes to Samsung Smart TVs21 Dec, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Branded standalone online TV service CBS All Access Dec. 21 announced its app is now available on select Samsung Smart televisions.
Samsung Tizen models issued in 2015, 2016 and 2017 will be able to stream All Access, while older Orsay models will be reconfigured in the near future.
With more than 1 million subscribers, All Access is available with commercials for $5.99 monthly, and ad-free for $9.99.
In addition to more than 10,000 TV show episodes on demand, All Access boasts original programming such as “Star Trek: Discovery,” “The Good Fight,” Will Ferrell’s “No Activity," and upcoming series “$1,” Ridley Scott’s “Strange Angel” and Jordan Peel’s “The Twilight Zone,” among others.
The platform also streams NFL’s “Thursday Night Football.”
CBS CFO Joe Ianniello credited over-the-top video for driving corporate revenue growth as more consumers shift from traditional distribution to newer platforms.
“With ‘Star Trek’ and now ‘Twilight Zone,’ we've just begun to tap the intellectual property we have at our disposal for future series,” Ianniello told analysts during the November fiscal call.
