CBS All Ac­cess plans to launch in Canada early next year

Cape Breton Post - - Entertainment -

TORONTO — U.S. stream­ing ser­vice CBS All Ac­cess is com­ing to Canada next year. The sub­scrip­tion plat­form be­hind the up­com­ing orig­i­nal se­ries “Star Trek: Dis­cov­ery’’ and “The Good Wife’’ spinoff “The Good Fight’’ says it’s look­ing to ex­pand into new mar­kets.

The first stop will be Canada in the first half of 2018. Last year, Bell Me­dia an­nounced it had ac­quired the ex­clu­sive rights to “Star Trek: Dis­cov­ery’’ in Canada, which would have its de­but episode air on CTV be­fore be­ing broad­cast on Space and Z. It was also an­nounced the show would later be avail­able to stream on CraveTV. It’s un­clear if those plans will change, or if “Star Trek: Dis­cov­ery’’ will be avail­able on CBS All Ac­cess in Canada. In the U.S., CBS All Ac­cess of­fers a vast li­brary of cur­rent prime-time hits such as “Big Bang The­ory,’’ “Madam Sec­re­tary’’ and “NCIS,’’ as well as the day-time soap “The Young and the Rest­less.’’ There’s also a se­lec­tion of clas­sic hit TV se­ries like “Cheers,’’ “Bev­erly Hills 90210’’ and “Taxi.’’
