Apple TV Channels Now Offers CBS All Access Subscription Service

The CBS All Access subscription service can now be purchased through the Channels feature in the Apple TV app, following news that it would be launching earlier this week.

Apple in March unveiled a redesigned TV app with the "Apple TV Channels" feature, designed to let users sign up for and watch third-party subscription services right in the TV app on iOS and tvOS.


CBS All Access was listed as one of the upcoming channels, but the channel wasn't available when the TV app first launched.

Apple users who want to sign up for CBS All Access can now do so through the Apple TV app. The service is priced at $9.99 per month, but there is a 7-day free trial available.

With a CBS All Access subscription purchased through the Channels feature, CBS All Access content can be watched directly in the TV app. The service offers access to live TV shows, sporting events, and more than 10,000 on-demand episodes from CBS shows.

Many other subscription services also work with the TV app channels feature, including Cinemax, EPIX, HBO, MTV Hits, Showtime, Smithsonian, Starz, Tastemade, and more.

Dedicated News Section Goes Live for US Users of Apple’s TV App

Apple's TV app gained a new News section late on Thursday. The dedicated section is appearing for users in the United States with devices running the latest iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 releases.


The new News option offers live streaming access to Bloomberg, CBS News, Cheddar, CNBC, CNN, and Fox News. The aggregated streams can be viewed directly within the TV app, although like other sourced content, users need to have the associated third-party tvOS apps installed for the channel links to show up.

The News section was originally demoed during Apple's September Apple TV 4K announcement, where the recently launched Sports section was also shown. The main difference between the two in the app interface is that Sports gets its own button, while News currently sits below a section created for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in the "Watch Now" area of the TV app.
