CBS All Access Comes to X1
We’re pleased to share that CBS All Access will be available on Xfinity X1 this week, following the launch of the app on Xfinity Flex earlier this year. Xfinity is the first pay TV provider to offer CBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service to customers as we continue to focus on making great entertainment choices available.
X1 customers will be able to enjoy CBS All Access’ offering of more than 20,000 episodes and movies from BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures and more, as well as exclusive original series like Star Trek: Discovery, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays; the upcoming limited event series The Stand, premiering December 17th and based on Stephen King's best-selling novel; as well as the recently debuted docuseries Texas 6, and many more.
In addition, CBS All Access also offers exclusive live streaming rights for major sports properties including some of the world’s biggest and most popular soccer leagues, along with the ability for customers to stream ViacomCBS Digital’s other live services: CBSN for 24/7 news, CBS Sports HQ for sports news and analysis, and ET Live for entertainment coverage. For Flex customers, CBS All Access enables them to stream their local CBS station live across the U.S., including the events CBS Sports broadcasts, from golf to football to basketball and more, as part of the extensive sports programming available on the service.
To launch the app and access the streaming service over the Internet, X1 customers can say “CBS All Access” into the Xfinity Voice Remote. They can also simply say the title (for example “Star Trek: Picard” or “The Good Fight”) to find and enjoy CBS All Access Originals instantly or browse CBS All Access programming within collections curated by Xfinity’s team of TV editors such as “Explore CBS All Access” and “December Premieres.” X1 customers and their families can also find CBS All Access children’s programming, which includes more than 1,000 episodes, including new seasons of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, Danger Mouse, and popular series from Nickelodeon. X1 and Flex customers will continue to enjoy all of the great programming included with CBS All Access and more when the service is rebranded as Paramount+ early next year.
We’ll continue to bring the best in entertainment to X1 and Flex, making it easier for our customers to find and discover all their favorite shows, music, and sports.
