    Even more annoying, my PayPal account shows I was just billed $5 by CBS All Access for "Commercial Free (Monthly)" service.

    edit: At some point since my last visit to my Account page, they've switched the discount to:

    Discount: 50% Off 2 Months
    edit2: CBS All Access phone support number: (888) 274.5343, Mon. - Sun. 8am - 2am ET.

    From last month, but damn once BBT is done, the only shows we watch on CBS is Elementary (wouldn't miss it if we stopped watching) and Life in Pieces (is this ever coming back)

    My next charge day is the 24th.. I started the cancel process the other day and it didn't offer me another discount (didn't think it would).

    I can also switch to yearly at $99 (or maybe $99.99 I forget) a year. That's a bit better.

    Funny thing is, I can afford all of this. It's the *duplication* that bugs me more than the total cost. (Obv since have Tivos that require cable, I'm not completely getting rid of cable for many many years.. and as I said before, I tivo the shows as a 'backup' but nowadays watch on these streaming services when I can, for no commercials..)

    I may cancel for a few days to see if they email me a "come back" offer, and to see what announcement comes out next week. But I can more easily imagine paying it as a yearly thing and just stick with cable + hulu + cbs.. for at least a year.

    I'm starting to watch CBSAA and Hulu more and more now, foregoing recordings I already have on DirecTV. I love not having to pick up the remote and press 30 second skip a bunch of times to bypass commercials. I swear I'm getting lazier and lazier by the day. I could see me possibly getting rid of DirecTV after more than 20 years of having it.

    but not all shows have even the CURRENT season in full, much less previous seasons.

    The first thing I do when I go into the Hulu app is go to the 'expiring' section. It's been empty for the past week or so for me.. but usually I have 10 days to 2 weeks to make sure I watch whatever shows up there... but once in a while an entire show shows up there and there are too many to watch or I have to watch JUST that show to catch up.

    so having them on my tivo as backup is good.. even though I'm often TivoING in just SD for some of these..

    Well, CBSAA customer support has remedied the glitch satisfactorily. The charge was refunded and my account now shows a next billing date of May 17th, as it originally showed. Fingers crossed; this should get me almost entirely through Discovery and much of Twilight Zone.

    I’ve been on & off with CBSAA since 2015. I recently had one free month followed by 2 months at 50% off. When I cancelled, I got an e-mail offering 20% off for the next 3 months.

    I started with a phone call to CBSAA phone support...
    ... but was then instructed to forward my details and screenshots showing my original Account page terms to their email support address:

    I did finally cancel mine. I will likely be back in the summer if not sooner. Admittedly the $100 yearly almost tempted me not to cancel.

    Like I said elsewhere, it's not the absolute price, it's the duplication of the same stuff on various services I'm paying for that slightly bugs me. (only slightly since as I have purposely "duplicated" cable as a backup)

    If you needed a new roku, I noticed on walmart.com, if you buy a roku you get 3 free months of cbs all access.

    I think the final episode of the current season of Discovery ends the week after my free 2 months stops.

    It should work for either if you have the redeem coupon option available. (Sometimes the option isn’t there if your next due date is too far out*)

    * I’m guessing on the criteria. I know I didn’t have the option earlier this month, but it’s there now.

    Used that one with our new email address that we're consolidating to... Got 1 week trial plus a free month... Good to 12/5 or so.

    Thanks!
