The CBS streaming service CBS All Access is now available as a channel on Roku. It replaces the current CBS Roku channel, which offered a selection of clips from the network's programs.
CBS All Access offers subscribers the ability to watch next-day episodes from a variety of CBS primetime, late night and daytime programs. The current season of most shows is available, as well as previous seasons of some shows as well as "classic" TV shows such as STAR TREK and I LOVE LUCY.
The service also offers live streaming of local CBS stations in 14 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia. In a meeting earlier in March with investors, CBS head Les Moonves said that negotiations with smaller affiliates were "on-going" in an effort to make their signals also part of the service.
"The launch of CBS All Access's Channel marks the first of many connected device platforms we'll be bringing CBS All Access to in the coming months," said Marc DeBevoise, executive vp entertainment, sports and news for CBS Interactive, in a statement announcing the move. "This launch brings us even closer to delivering on our promise to give our viewers access to more of CBS's world-class programming on whichever platform they choose."
CBS All Access costs $5.99 a month.
