CBS has unveiled a new subscription service for consumers who simply wish to stream their favorite shows via the Internet, without the need to have an active cable subscription. The broadcaster's announcement follows HBO revealing similar plans. The CBS All Access service will set viewers back $5.99 a month.
A total of 14 US markets will be supported at launch, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas and San Francisco. For those who reside outside the initial 14 markets will be restricted to viewing prime time shows a day after being shown, as well as access to more than 5,000 episodes of popular series, including Star Trek, MacGyver and others.
Unfortunately, it seems NFL games will not be shown on the new service. CBS officials note they're working to partner with NFL to provide said coverage online, and that consumers can already take advantage of other live sports already available for streaming.
A similar service for CBS-owned cable network Showtime is also in the works. Would you take up CBS (and soon HBO) with the new web-only offering? If so, check out the CBS All Access website for more details and to sign-up.
