CBS All Access, the US broadcast network's direct-to-consumer streaming service, has joined Amazon Channels with an ad-light offering.
Amazon Prime members will be able to add CBS All Access for $9.99 per month.
Live-streaming of CBS local stations will come with the same commercials as traditional viewers, but on-demand episodes will be ad-free except for promotional interruptions.
“Amazon Channels has become a key mover for subscribers to US over-the-top video services, so it may provide a goose to CBS All Access, which is already growing solidly,” said Seeking Alpha.
CBS chief Les Moonves is bullish on the Tiffany Network’s digital strategy, and has said that he expects CBS and Showtime streaming combined to have 8 million subs by 2020.
The basic $5.99 per month ad-supported version of CBC All Access will be added to Amazon Channels in the coming months – the exact timing was not announced.
