Apple TV + gives you access to award-winning Apple Originals, with more high-quality series and movies added every month. This bundle is a big bonus for Apple TV + subscribers, giving them the best of CBS and Showtime on the Apple TV app at great value.
“There’s no better time to launch this special pack,” added Marc DeBevoise, Digital Director of ViacomCBS and President and CEO of ViacomCBS Digital. “CBS All Access recently expanded to offer more than 20,000 episodes and movies for fans, as well as a large selection of new content from exclusive original series, such as ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ and ‘The Stand’, to new CBS lineup like “Big Brother”, “Love Island” and more. “
David Nevins, Creative Director of CBS and President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc. commented:
Showtime is happy to be part of a package with CBS All Access bringing our wide array of truly addicting series, sports and documentaries to Apple TV + subscribers. It’s great to be able to reach so many viewers with an offer that offers our premium content through the Apple TV app.
The ad-free version of CBS All Access would normally cost $ 9.99 per month, while SHOWTIME would cost $ 10.99 per month. Apple TV + costs $ 4.99 per month, but many users get it for free after purchasing a qualifying device. Apple should soon announce new packages consisting of its services.
