CBS’s All Access subscription VOD and live-streaming service has been breaking records, fueled by the season two premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery” and Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. The network announced that the service hit new highs for new subscriber signups and unique viewers in a weekend.
During the past weekend, CBS All Access added more subscribers in a single weekend than ever before, eclipsing the previous record set during the 2017 series premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery” by 72%.
Sunday’s AFC Championship Game marked the most streamed football game on CBS All Access to date. It surpassed last year’s game by 158% in streams, 139% in time spent and 103% in average minute audience on CBS All Access platforms.
“The return of our biggest original series hit, ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ and this weekend’s AFC Championship Game have propelled CBS All Access to new record-breaking heights,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “CBS All Access’ growing content offering, including both exclusive original series and the expansion of live-event programming, continues to pay off with consumers, and we look forward to bringing them even more must-watch series and live events.”
