Hold Onto Your Peacock, CBS All Access Just Got Better
Earlier this year, CBS All Access tapped the trove of ViacomCBS assets and introduced a mini library of Paramount films to its service—a move that made a good service even better. Around the same time, the company’s top brass said it was gearing up to introduce “major changes” to expand the service’s features and offerings, and we’ve been looking forward to seeing what the service had in store.
CBS All Access showed a bit of its hand today, announcing it added some 3,500 episodes to its service from roughly 70 new shows, including series from BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, TV Land, VH1, and the Smithsonian Channel. It’s also added more Paramount Pictures flicks since its initial announcement in May, with more than 150 movies now available to stream. That’s on top of CBS’s already expansive library on the service.CBS All Access Is Good Now
Plus, there’s the service’s live TV and expanding sports coverage, and of course, the stellar CBS All Access originals, which include Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone and Star Trek: Picard. Beginning next week and through the end of the year, the service will also be premiering seasons for new and returning originals. Star Trek: Lower Decks, The Stand, The Untitled Richard Linklater Project, and more will hit the service before the end of the year.
