CBS is planning to launch its All Access service for the Apple TV, according to a new report from 9to5Mac. Citing sources with knowledge of the matter, the $6/month All Access subscription service could be coming to Apple TV “in the near future.” The service has just been announced for the Android TV platform, however, a deal could apparently not be worked out with Apple in time for the launch of the new Apple TV. The CBS All Access service provides subscribers with live streaming from local CBS TV stations and on-demand access to a library of 6,500 TV episodes, and is currently available for iOS, Android, and Roku, but remains the one major service missing from the Apple TV platform. In its press release earlier today, CBS did note that support for “additional connected devices” is coming, although no specific platforms were mentioned.
