    Sounds like they have a few unresolved issues with their website.

    I don’t believe in commercials and wouldn’t pay $2-3 month to a service (CBSAA, Hulu....) unless they are skippable.

    Would this be for the commercial-free plan?

    Thanks for posting!
    Would anyone know if this would preclude me from taking advantage of other CBS offers?

    I set my account to cancel on 4/26, so that it wouldn't auto-renew on 4/27. That worked fine.

    This afternoon I received an email "Come back & get 1 month FREE!". From the bottom of it
    The code looks personalized this time.

    Ok, so I canceled before it was going to auto-renew.

    Today I received another email to rejoin and receive 50% off for 2 months. They want me to rejoin by June 14th and the promo code looks personalized. Not planning to rejoin at this point.

    Nothing else on AA interests me.

    Yeah. That's a big part of the problem for me. Other than Star Trek content that's exclusive to CBS AA, nothing else to me makes the service worth paying for.

    I glanced around to see if it had any extras material for the Star Trek shows like you'd find on DVD/BD discs but there were none. :( Ages ago, when I subscribed to Netflix and/or Blockbuster DVDs by mail, I'd rent those only to watch the extras.

    Why would you think there would be? I've rarely seen extras unless buying a show or movie. But there is a whole companion show for each episode of Discovery and Picard.

    Well... I was just hoping and if there were, I was going to watch the extras I hadn't seen.

    But yeah, for Disco and Picard there were After Trek (I enjoyed it and watched every ep), its replacement after show (a step backwards to the point where I stopped watching) and then Wil Wheaton's after show for Picard, which was decent.

    Many of the other extras for those two shows are (IIRC) accessible on cbs.com w/o an AA subscription or up for free on YouTube.

    I finally got around to finishing Picard over the weekend, and was planning on cancelling. I guess I better check out the update to see if I want to stick around.

    Nothing really very exciting about the update IMHO

    I was checking things out last night. I noticed Nash Bridges was on there. I never watched the show. I decided I would watch the very first episode, for the hell of it.

    What they've got going on is very odd. It had like 7 seasons. First season said they had 5 episodes. So, I thought it was one of those very short first seasons. Took me a minute to figure out, but they only had episodes 3, 4, 11, 12 and 13 of the first season. What is the point of that? I assume this is due to the show being in syndication somewhere, or something. Just seems pointless.

    Looking at a lot of other shows, they only have episodes from recent seasons. I know this is because the show was sold to some other service, or again because of syndication. I'm just not interested in a service that has a show, but doesn't have every episode of that show.

    JAG is like this too. They are missing quite a few episodes in each season, and Amazon is missing the same episodes as well. I wondered if it had to do with royalties to guest stars.

    Oh, or maybe it is a music rights thing. Heard of other shows that have removed songs from a TV show for streaming, and replaced with some generic song. Maybe nobody cares about Nash Bridges enough to switch out songs.

    Every time this thread moves to the top, I contemplate subscribing. Then I take a closer look and decide there is nothing they offer that I like that is worth paying more for. And, seems like constant wrangling month to month. Then, in their new announcement, they sound so weak: We were the first to do this, therefore we must be the best.
    I would like to see The Good Fight in its entirety; guess I will have to figure out another way.
