A couple of ongoing threads which might help...So who has CBS Online and if so what do you think about the service? How is the video and sound quality on CBS Online? Is anything in Atmos or lossless audio? And do you feel there is enough value to justify the cost?
Still doesn't look/sound that compelling though...Not worth spending a ton of time judging the service as it is today since it's about to undergo a huge change...
A rebranded and expanded version of the CBS All Access streaming service will arrive this summer, ViacomCBS announced this morning. The service, now run by ViacomCBS following the merger, today offers a mix of live TV, on-demand video, original programming, streaming news, local broadcast stations …techcrunch.com
I might wait til next season of Picard (and maybe The Good Fight) before reactivating mine to binge on both that and S3 of Discovery in same month... unless Picard gets delayed way too long, which I suppose could be the case w/ this pandemic situation...I finally finished watching ST Picard and immediately canceled. This service is the least compelling streaming service with a ridiculous high price for commercial free viewing and what little content is available. I'll re-sub once the entire season 3 of ST Discovery is up and I can binge it in less than a month.
This announced rebranding doesn't look very compelling either and how much you want to bet it will come with a price increase to $15.
If you have the ATV, what you really should do is not use the CBS All Access app at all and use the Apple TV app. The "Watch Now" tab automatically queues up the next episode for you for every show you watch, even if you're watching shows across multiple services. It's also a great way to save a list of movies you want to watch next.Anything like that? I am using an Apple 4kTV as my source for this (if that helps).
It's meant to be sort of a 1 stop place to view all of your content (instead of hunting through every single app), but it's not fully realized the way they envision it because not all services are connected to it (yet). Netflix and Criterion are two I wish would connect to it.Patrick: Thanks!
I called it up and "connected" CBS All Access to Apple TV and found a couple of the series we are watching and now they are sitting in the Watch Now screen (you as you said).
What IS Apple TV? I have noticed it as an app on the A4kTV box. Is it just a piece of software designed to get subscribers of various services to be able to use it as "one stop shopping?" I apologize for being so far behind the times.
I do NOT see Disney+ as one of the channels listed on AppleTV (nor Amazon Prime).
