If you’re an AT&T U-verse or DirecTV customer, you are about to lose access to CBS. This is because AT&T is not renewing its license agreement with CBS, so if you have AT&T for cable, you’re going to lose out on America’s Most Watched Network. That means no Big Brother, no NCIS, no Young Sheldon, among many other shows.
Now it is possible that AT&T will hear from enough of its customers that it will renew the agreement with CBS, but why risk it, and possibly lose out on this network, when you can sign up for CBS All Access for $5.99 per month, and also get access to a ton of other shows (and movies).
With CBS All Access, you can watch CBS live, so if you are a huge Big Brother fan, you can still watch the episodes, even when you aren’t home. It also has a pretty large catalog of shows that are available. This includes watching previous seasons, so you can really binge watch a ton of older shows.
Some of the shows that are available include the new Love Island show that just started about a week ago. There’s also Madam Secretary, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, NCIS, Star Trek: Picard, The Twilight Zone, Elementary and many more. So as you can see, there are plenty of shows to watch on CBS All Access.
With CBS All Access, you also get a few other live streaming channels, which includes CBSN – the company’s 24-hour live-streaming news network, CBS News – as well as CBS Sports. So you’ll get plenty of sports as well.
There are two plans available for CBS All Access. There’s the $5.99 plan, which is the one that’ll get you in the door. It is an ad-supported plan, so you will still see ads, even when you’re not watching live. Then there is also a $9.99 plan that does not have ads. Unless you are watching live, you won’t get any ads. It also has another perk that’s really nice, and that is the ability to download shows for offline viewing. This is great if you’re about to jump on a plane, you can download a few episodes of NCIS to watch on your flight.
CBS All Access is a really great streaming service to sign up for. Even if AT&T is able to get the license agreement signed with CBS before the blackout, this is still one that you’ll want to add to your monthly subscriptions. Since it has a lot more content then you will see in the on-demand library from U-verse or DirecTV, and it’s just $6 per month. It’s hard to justify not getting CBS All Access at that price. That’s about a third of the price of Netflix.
