We all need a little convincing when it comes to signing up for a new subscription service, especially if it means ditching an old one. If you've found yourself here it's because you heard about CBS All Access and you want to know what all the fuss is about. Well, buckle up, friend. We're about to take a ride where I'm going to tell you all about this service and why you should totally subscribe to it. If you're still on the fence you can even do a one-week free trial to test before you buy!

One week free frial at CBS All Access

1. All your favorite shows are here

Want to take a trip down memory lane? All your favorite classic shows like The Brady Bunch and Cheers are waiting for you on CBS All Access, arranged into neat categories so you can figure out what to watch.

It doesn't matter if you want to laugh, cry, or be on the edge of your seat; this subscription has everything you could want and more. There are even sports options with CBS Sports, such as NCAA, NFL, SEC, and Super Bowl coverage.

I have a date with CBS, a bowl of popcorn, and a marathon of Young Sheldon on my horizon. What about you?

2. Live streaming TV

Not only does this subscription give you the option to choose what you watch, but you can also watch live TV. CBS updates its live schedule bi-weekly. Here you can catch all the latest episodes of shows like Big Brother. This is also perfect for those times when you can't decide what to watch.

Everything you could ever want, anytime you want it.

Did you miss the latest episode of your favorite show? Don't worry, CBS has your back. Instead of waiting for an entirely new season to drop for an update, like you would on Netflix, CBS updates its show pages as the episodes come out. You may be behind, but you won't have to wait for very long.

3. Device compatibility

As it stands this subscription doesn't have the option to customize the number of screens you're able to watch on. Each subscription allows two screens to watch simulataneously from a number of compatible devices, including:

  • Amazon FireTV
  • Apple TV
  • Apple iPad
  • Apple iPhone
  • Android
  • Roku
  • Google Chromecast
  • Windows 10
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox

It doesn't matter if you're hiding your phone in the corner of your desk while you desperately try to catch up on NCIS or if you're loading up a comedy special on your TV for the whole family to enjoy. You can watch anything on CBS All Access from just about any device.

4. Something this good must cost a fortune, right? WRONG

Limited Commercials Commercial Free
Monthly Price $5.99 $9.99
Annual Price $69.99 $99.99
Offline mode No Yes

I had to blink a few times to make sure I was seeing the price right. With CBS All Access, you can opt into dealing with a few ads for less than half the price of a basic Netflix plan or go ad-free entirely and still pay less.

CBS All Access also gives you the option to pay a larger sum as an annual fee instead. Paying this way saves you 15 percent of the regular monthly price. Regardless of which plan you decide.

5. Another reason to curl up with your loved ones

We're in an ever-evolving society and it's hard to find time to spend with our loved ones. Between our work schedules, class schedules, and "I just want to sit in my underwear, eat ice cream and have a lazy day" schedules its pretty difficult to find something that draws a family together. At the end of every day there is always one thing that people can always bond over— and that's TV.

So pick a favorite show. Find something you all enjoy. Don't worry about fitting the schedule of any TV Guide and make your own schedule. Once a week set a few hours aside, make some snacks, grab your loved ones and pool on the couch like you're about to withstand the coldest winter. Put on a good show with CBS and finally have the reason you've been looking for to spend some time together— anytime.

So there you have it

CBS All Access is here and ready to give you all the best shows and movies for a favorable price. Cut the cord, go get an account, and see what all this hype is about. Then come back and tell me about all the shows you're binge watching.
