The CBS All Access streaming service is now accessible on Google's smart TV platform, Android TV, which includes all Sony Android TVs in Canada.
Those interested in subscribing to the direct-to-consumer digital subscription video-on-demand service can do so for $5.99/mo., and access commercial-free full seasons of current primetime series, as well as daytime and late night CBS shows; as well as thousands of episodes from CBS' back catalogue. For news, the service also affords access to the 24/7 streaming news service CBSN.
CBS All Access, which launched in Canada in April, marks the network's first expansion into an international market, offers Canadian viewers more than 7,500 commercial-free episodes on demand, entire previous seasons and classic shows, and CBSN live streaming of live, anchored coverage and original reporting.
"The addition of Android TV to CBS All Access' distribution in Canada marks a new milestone in the growth of our service in its first international market," says Rob Gelick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Entertainment Digital. "In addition to CBS All Access' ongoing expansion to new platforms, we're also expanding the premium content available for Canadian subscribers, including our recently launched exclusive original series Strange Angel." New episodes of Strange Angel will be available every Thursday.
Some of the available programs include NCIS, Bull, Seal Team, MacGyver, and Instinct, with new episodes available seven days after they are broadcast. All past seasons of 15 primetime series are also available, including NCIS, Survivor, Elementary, and Madam Secretary. Other content includes the first season of The Good Fight, and comedy series No Activity. Classic series include Charmed, The Good Wide, Hawaii Five-O, and CSI.
In terms of daytime and late-night shows, subscribers can access titles like The Talk, Rachael Ray, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
In addition to the launch on Android TV, CBS All Access is also available in Canada at cbsallaccess.ca, on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices, and on Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku streaming players, and Roku TVs.
