According to CBS All Access, you’ll get a total of more than 10,000 episodes of top CBS shows when you subscribe to the service. We can confirm that there is a truly huge amount of content available on this service – you can watch pretty much every CBS show from the last several decades in full. If you tend to watch a lot of CBS shows, this service will definitely exceed your expectations.

What Kind of Content Can I Expect From the CBS All Access Library?

CBS All Access has just about every show that CBS airs, including recently-aired episodes as well as full seasons of shows like Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory, The Amazing Race, SEAL Team, Survivor and more. You can even watch older CBS shows like Twin Peaks, Cheers, and Wings – just to name a few.

Some shows, like Survivor, include every episode and every season, while others like The Big Bang Theory are limited to the most recently-aired season.

There is also a growing list of CBS All Access exclusives. These shows are never broadcast on CBS at all. Instead, they are only shown on CBS All Access. The current lineup of CBS All Access exclusive shows includes Star Trek: Discovery and Jordan Peele’s newly revamped version of The Twilight Zone.

Does CBS All Access On-Demand Content Have Commercials?

This depends on the package you choose. If you purchase the cheaper, $5.99/month Limited Commercials plan, you’ll have several commercial breaks during each show you watch.

However, if you pay $9.99 for the Commercial Free plan, you won’t have to watch commercials when you watch most on-demand content. There are some exceptions, though. Occasionally, there is a show that will still require you to watch an ad or two.

It’s also important to note that, no matter which CBS All Access package you choose, you’ll still have to watch commercials when you’re watching CBS live, even if you choose the Commercial Free plan.

What Apps Can I Use to Watch CBS All Access On-Demand?

All devices that support CBS All Access also support on-demand viewing. That means you can watch CBS All Access on your web browser, on iOS and Android devices, on Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 gaming consoles.
