CBS All Access Hits Canada

CBS’ cord-cutting endeavor, CBS All Access has been a resounding success (hitting 2.5 million subscribers) for the television network. After debuting the service following the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery, American households signed up for CBS All Access in droves to see the remaining episodes of the All Access only series.

This was such a successful ploy that CBS is going to try the stunt again with their next franchise reboot, The Twilight Zone. Now, Canada gets to be in on all the fun too.

President and Chief Operating Officer of CBS Interactive, Marc DeBevoise released a statement on this new venture,

“The launch of CBS All Access in Canada is a significant milestone for the service. We’ve experienced incredible growth domestically and see a great opportunity to bring the service and CBS’ renowned programming directly to international audiences across a range of platforms and devices. We look forward to continuing to expand CBS All Access across additional platforms, with even more content, and bringing the service to other markets around the world.”

For Canadians, the cost of CBS All Access will be $5.99 CAD per month. This will give the Great White North access to 7,500 on-demand titles. However, a CBS livestream is not currently included. However, you will get access to the CBS News livestream. As of right now, CBS All Access can be downloaded or accessed on:

  • Android
  • Apple TV
  • Chromecast
  • iOS

However, the service will soon be available in Canada on other devices such as Roku and Amazon Channels.
