I just learned that CBS All Access will have a new version of The Twilight Zone with host Jordan Peele who wrote and directed the movie Get Out.

One advantage I’ve found is that Madam Secretary, which, on Sunday nights, is difficult to record without lots of pad due to football. With All Access, the show is available the next day, without padding and no banners.

Since I have the No Commercials version, I can run and gun it without having to ff to the next segment. I love it that way.

Same thing for BBT and Young Sheldon and the other new CBS shows I watch. I wish the other networks would start All Access sites. It would be worth it for me.

Yeah, they offered me a free month, but ST: D hasn't restarted so there's no point.
Not exactly a reply to your post but it reminds me.. for new members..

When you try to go there 'regularly', I see week long trials for new members.. but I googled it last night and there are apparently month long coupons... and those offers apparently are good until the end of the year.

I'm missing ONE ep of Scorpion near the end and see that it's on there. (Plus there's a small glitch in one I was watching yesterday and I'll probably check that out.)

If the free month lets you get the commercial free version too, I'll probably try it for a month. (I sort of wish the month long offers let you add on to your other services, like Hulu & amazon are doing now.)

I was looking at the CBSAA channel on Amazon and it seemed like everything recent was in 5.1 (it's not on my Samsung or Roku) and they (Amazon) had all the back seasons of BBT (the only one I checked, just to see) where the CBSAA app has only the current one.

I wanted to watch on Amazon but found out that even if you have a paid subscription with a service, you can't watch on Amazon unless you subscribed through them. I went to cancel from CBSAA so I could subscribe via Amazon and, online mind you, it offered 50% off for 2 months. I took that and will see what happens from there.

I just found out by accident that All Access offers the CBS NFL game of the week. It’s available a couple of days after air in a condensed form, (no breaks).

It may not benefit those of use who watch live, or near live, on Sunday, but it’s there for anyone wanting a quick recap of their team’s game.

Ugh, no. What I wish is that CBS would join Hulu, where the other networks already do this, for one low price. (Granted, it's not available for all shows. I guess it depends who owns the rights.)

Part of the issue of CBS with Hulu is that CBSAA is amassing a library of original programming for online only unlike the other networks.
Oddly, some of their programming is also on Hulu - I think Survivor is and some older shows.

In the meantime, we're enjoying The Good Fight and I am seeing Big Brother Over the Top for the first time (didn't know it existed). I also may watch some of the first Survivor seasons and try some other originals.

You can now link CBS All Access Amazon channel with the actual CBS All Access app. Not a peep about it anywhere but I found it somewhere in some comments I read. Google lately sucks keeps freaking crossing out words that are needed and giving me dumb paid results and that is another complaint so I can't find the stupid link but it is possible.

Also the CBS All Access app improved the quality on the HD streaming in 1080p greatly picture and sound wise however some SD content still has AM quality sound 16kbps.

Okay found the link did not use useless Google.
CBS.com

I saw a complaint earlier about CBS All Access not having all seasons of a current show, but when I look at their site for old shows like JAG or Nash Bridges, it seems like they only have a subset of episodes for each season. For example, it looks like they only have 50 out of 122 Nash Bridges episodes---they have S1E3 and S1E4, but not S1E1 or S1E2...

I don't understand---if they have given someone else rights to a season, it would be for the whole season...

I love CBS All Access. I've stopped recording CBS shows on the TiVo to free up a tuner. We don't usually fall too far behind on our CBS shows, so five episodes will be more than enough. I like being able to set the remote down because I don't need to jump through commercials. We don't usually watch back seasons on current shows, so that's not an issue. I'm working my way through Star Trek Next Generation and DS9 at the moment.

I also enjoy the new content like ST Discovery, Good Fight, and Strange Angel.

Yes, that's one of the things that makes it worthwhile for me - not having to ff-rew to get to the next segment. Just hit play and watch.
Especially appreciated when watching on a phone. Easily worth $9.99 a month.
