What is CBS All Access?
CBS All Access is loaded with original shows for you to check out and get lost in like The Twilight Zone and Strange Angel — and in 2020 Star Trek: Picard and a new take on Stephen King's The Stand. Each subscription comes with the ability to watch on two screens, but if you upgrade to the No-Commercial subscription you can also download shows to watch in Offline Mode.
Aside from all your favorite shows and movies being helpfully categorized on their website, you can also find Live TV options with your account. Every two weeks CBS updates their Live TV schedule for you to watch shows like Big Brother and Star Trek: Discovery as they air!
What exactly does signing in with my cable subscription get me?
The CBS All Access website has an option to watch prime time TV on their browser. You can only connect your cable company to CBS All Access for live streaming via cellphone, laptop, desktop, or tablet. It won't work on TVs, not even through your streaming boxes.
If you don't have a CBS All Access account you can create one by connecting to your cable provider. This will give you access to their prime time TV streaming. CBS updates its live schedule bi-weekly so you'll always be able to see what's on the horizon for you to watch.
