Football games will now be available through the streaming TV service.
CBS and the NFL have announced a new deal to bring NFL games to CBS All Access. The multiyear deal kicks off this Sunday, December 4, and will include all NFL on CBS coverage of regular, preseason, and postseason games.
"We are very pleased that our partnership with the NFL has been expanded to include CBS All Access," said Leslie Moonves, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the CBS Corporation. "Adding the most watched programming on television, to the most watched network on television, will be a powerful combination as we continue to grow CBS All Access into the future."
As part of the agreement, CBS All Access subscribers will be able to live stream all NFL on CBS games being broadcast in their local markets, including Thursday Night Football on CBS, as well as pregame and halftime coverage. In addition, CBS All Access offers next day streaming for new episodes of many popular shows and a library of over 8,500 on demand episodes, including content from current programs like 'Limitless' and 'Elementary,' and classic series like 'Star Trek' and 'Cheers.' Likewise, customers in more than 150 markets across the US -- including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia -- can watch live local CBS broadcasts through the app.
The service is available in two subscription plans: reduced commercials for $5.99 per month or commercial-free for $9.99 per month. The commercial free option offers ad-free playback of on demand content and upcoming original shows. With that said, live streaming will still include the same commercials found in standard over-the-air broadcasts.
CBS All Access is currently available through the Xbox One, PS4, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote, Roku players, Roku TVs, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox 360, and Windows 10, iOS and Android products. New customers can sign up for a one week free trial now at https://www.cbs.com/allaccess.
