CBS All Access is free for a month


Patrick Stewart did a tweetie thing and gave us some free TV.

You just have to remember to cancel before they start charging.

Was that Picard show any good? Did it air all its episodes yet?

Nitpick; only access to the Picard show is free for a month (or until April 23). CBS All Access is only free for a week, under what I think is an existing offer.

I think that that has always been their standard deal. Most places give a week or month free to start.

Awesome. I definitely wanted to do more to protest all these different companies trying to start up their own streaming services rather than finding a more consumer-friendly solution. Now I get to catch up on Star Trek and give the finger to CBS!

I signed up and saw the offer was a free month. It even said something to the effect of "cancel before April 24 to avoid being charged. "
I was a bit disappointed that many of the classic shows are incomplete. Taxi starts the episode after Jim's driving test, Happy Days is only one season, etc. I'll take the free month, enjoy it, and cancel before the month is out.
