CBS bets you will. The network just announced a stand-alone online streaming service called CBS All Access. The service will charge $5.99 a month for full seasons of the network’s current daytime and primetime shows, as well as thousands of episodes from CBS’ library.
The announcement comes the day after HBO surprised the industry by finally announcing a stand-alone streaming service that will debut next year. CBS is betting viewers will pony up for the convenience of streaming its shows anytime, anywhere, as well as access to a vast library of content.
