With over 9000 episodes of NCIS, the Restless, The Good FIght and more TV shows which the Americans love, CBS All Access is one of the best video streaming service similar to Netflix and Hulu. On top of the regular originals and TV shows, CBS All Access also allows you to stream the NBA and NFL games live. It works on Apple TV, Xbox One, Chromecast and Roku enabled devices as well. This guide will be primarily focused on how to cancel CBS All Access account subscription.

The subscription fee is pretty low as compared to all other online streaming services. There is a free 7-day trial and a $5.99/mo fee or $9.99/mo (commercial free) subscription plan. In September, CBS All Access’ revenue doubled up when Star Trek: Discovery was released, and their viewer base increase by almost 2.5x. Though if you just use it for watching particular football seasons, you can cancel the access and resume it again later on.

Final Words

CBS is one hell of a service which I have been using over the past 2 years. And in my experience, it is a great place apart from Netflix or Hulu. Some primetime shows are exclusive here on CBS and you won’t find them on any other services.

If you are a NFL freak and like to binge watch the older shows like Star Trek or The Price is RIght and more, CBS All Access is the real deal. But yes, after a while, it all becomes monotonous and it’s important to keep a check on your expenses online.
