If you subscribe to CBS All Access, and hate the commercials, or you haven’t subscribed because you hate commercials, the streaming service has good news for you, (and presumably themselves). CBS on Wednesday launched a $9.99 per month “ad-free” subscription option. That’s a $4 per month premium over the standard $5.99 sub.
With the commercial-free plan, subscribers will be able to watch CBS All Access’s on-demand library of more than 7,500 episodes, including full current seasons of primetime hits like BIG BROTHER, BLUE BLOODS, MADAM SECRETARY and THE ODD COUPLE among many others, as well as late night, daytime and news programming, all without commercials. CBS All Access’s upcoming original series, including the next chapter of the legendary “Star Trek” TV franchise, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, a spinoff of “The Good Wife” and a new digital edition of “Big Brother” will also be available commercial-free under the $9.99/month plan.
The “ad-free” streaming won’t be completely commercial-free, as the normal commercials in the live-streaming of local CBS stations will remain, (which makes sense), and “select on-demand shows will include promotional interruptions.”
CBS says subscribers to the $5.99/month plan will continue to experience reduced commercials when watching on-demand content, and be able to watch “CBS Classics” without commercials. Current subscribers will have the option to move to the commercial-free plan by logging on to their account on the CBS All Access website.
