CBS All Access is now on the Xbox One and Xbox 360

For those who like to get their fill of CBS in the United States, you'll be excited to hear that the channel has officially launched their universal app for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. CBS already has their Windows 10 app for PC, one for Mobile and now the experience is complete with Microsoft's gaming consoles (and yes, you can even run it on HoloLens too).

The CBS app, which is technically CBS All Access, gives consumers access to the live CBS broadcast as well as access to the entire library of the massive channel. CBS runs such hit shows as The Big Bang Theory, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NCIS, 2 Broke Girls, Big Brother, and more.

CBS All Access does cost $5.99 a month though some rumors suggest that CBS may let you tie it into your cable subscription like how FOX and other channels operate. "Star Trek: Discovery" will also premier exclusively on CBS All Access in early 2017 making it a must-have for Trek fans (those outside the US can watch it on Netflix). The bad news is even while paying you may see the occasional 15-second ad although it is nothing like broadcast TV at the moment.

Overall, the app looks gorgeous and is very fast and fluid. This is the initial release, and I have heard more updates are on the way to improve things even further.
