CBS All Access free trial 2020: How to get your free month of premium drama

The on-demand service from CBS allows subscribers to stream NCIS, The Big Bang Theory and more for 1 month without paying a cent.

Updated

The competition in the streaming market is heating up with the addition of the guilty pleasure smorgasbord that CBS All Access offers.

The slim streaming library on offer may not compare to Netflix’s gigantic TV show and movie catalogue (with some notable omissions like Star Trek: Discovery, but it’s still early days for the service and you can take what is available for a test-drive with a one-month free trial.

It looks like we don't have any coupons at the moment.

Is there a catch?

There’s no catch, if you sign up to the one-month free trial and remember to cancel your subscription at the end of the calendar month, you won’t pay a cent. However, it’s worth noting that failing to do so will result in an automatic debit on your attached credit card for $5.99.

How do I get a free trial of CBS All Access?

If you’re keen to see how much NCIS and CSI you can cram into one month, follow these simple steps to take advantage of the CBS All Access free trial.

  1. Head over to the CBS All Access website.
  2. Click the big orange “JOIN NOW & GET 1 MONTH FREE” button.
  3. Enter your personal details that will be used to log in to your CBS All Access account (name, email address and password).
  4. Agree to the terms and conditions.
  5. Click the blue “SIGN UP” button.
  6. Enter a promo code in the order summary window if you have one.
  7. Enter your address and payment details.
  8. Click “Review Order”.
  9. Complete the transaction and begin streaming.

How much will I pay once the free trial ends?

If you decide to stick around, CBS All Access is priced at $5.99 per month. Subscribers can watch three simultaneous streams across a variety of devices, including PCs, Macs, Android, iOS, Apple TV and Chromecast.

What does a CBS All Access subscription get me?

CBS All Access offers thousands of TV episodes commercial-free. You can binge watch entire seasons of popular 90s dramas like Melrose Place or Beverly Hills 902010 as well as an impressive collection of crime procedurals, with titles like Blue Bloods, Numb3rs, Medium, CSI and more. Meanwhile, reality fans can tune in for shows like The Bachelor.

The only downside concerning CBS All Access content is that the classics are the majority here with fresh originals taking a backseat. Subscribers can already watch Happy Together and The Neighborhood, two sitcoms that premiered during the fall TV season. Plus, you get to stream CBS All Access exclusive series, which are a whole lot of fun. The list includes The Good Fight, Strange Angel, One Dollar and Tell Me a Story. As an added bonus, CBS All Access also comes with a live stream of CBSN, a US news channel.
