CBS has widened access to the CBS All Access digital subscription service, making the $5.99 monthly service available on Microsoft’s Xbox One.

“For $5.99 a month, CBS All Access offers more than 7,500 on-demand episodes from the current season and previous seasons of classic shows, as well as the ability to stream local CBS stations live in more than 150 markets across the U.S., including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia,” the company noted in its announcement. “In addition, subscribers will be able to watch CBS All Access’s upcoming original series, including ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ a spinoff of ‘The Good Wife’ and a new digital edition of ‘Big Brother.'”

Rob Gelick, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Platforms for CBS Interactive Entertainment, comments in the announcement: “Overall, our subscriber base is spending more than half of their time streaming CBS All Access content on connected devices, and that increases to 75 percent when watching CBS All Access’s live local TV feeds. Expanding the service to Xbox One gives CBS Television fans even more ways to watch their favorite programming on their device of choice.”

The release notes that CBS All Access is also available on Windows 10, Android and iOS devices via the CBS App; online at CBS.com; and through Xbox 360, Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku players and Roku TV, with additional connected devices to be added in the coming months.

  1. Again, will cable subscribers that have access to CBS on demand get access to CBS All Access only shows (e.g. Big Brother, Star Trek). CBS is getting more than that fee in cable subscriber retransmission fees. Double dipping should be illegal.
