Last week, CBS’ CEO, Leslie Moonves, announced that a combined package of the company’s flagship streaming services, CBS All Access and Showtime, would soon be available to the public. Today, CBS has officially announced the launch of that long awaited combination. Consumers can now sign up for CBS’s rendition on the “skinny” bundle through either cbs.com or showtime.com, and opt to upgrade to the combined offering.
As of now, the deal is only available to current subscribers who will see the option to add on the service in their account’s settings. Separately, CBS All Access goes for $5.99 (with commercials) and $10.99/mo for Showtime. The new combined pricing is $14.99 per month, or $18.99 per month for the CBS All Access commercial-free plan.
Subscribers will be able to watch CBS or Showtime through all respective platforms and apps where the two services are available, which includes mobile apps, web, and TV platforms. CBS now joins Hulu as one of the only destinations where customers can subscribe to Showtime with a discount.
Additionally, this week, CBS struck a deal with its affiliate board to increase access to its live streams across new digital platforms, including its own. Right now, CBS All Access allows viewers in 90 percent of the U.S. to receive their local station through the streaming service, but the new deal will grow that number further, according to the company.
