CBS All Access is going to be going through some changes this summer, and it sounds as though all of them will be positive.
Following the reunification of CBSViacom, the vault of content CBS All Access has greatly expanded. With no mention of a price increase, ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish revealed on an earnings call this week that more content is being added. Soon we’ll see new content from other cable channels in the family including Nickelodeon, BET, and more. And then, within 12 months, the service will be rolling out internationally as well.
As of Thursday afternoon things were already changing on the platform as more than 100 library films from Paramount were added to the service. You can now watch select films from the Star Trek series, The Godfather, Terms of Endearment, An Inconvenient Truth, and more.
“Expanding CBS All Access’ library of films with these iconic titles from Paramount Pictures is just one of the many ways we’re integrating the phenomenal catalog of IP available to us within the ViacomCBS family,” All Access programming chief Julie McNamara said in a press release. “The service is on a growth trajectory with two record-breaking months in March and April, and we look forward to bringing even more premium content and value to our subscribers in the coming months.”
And if all of that isn’t enough, the service is also expected to offer a “critical mass of live sports” in the near future.
It seems as though CBS All Access is working its way towards becoming a bit more of a serious contender in the streaming space.
