DIRECTV NOW Adds CBS On-Demand Nationwide

Yesterday DIRECTV NOW started to add CBS on-demand content for all subscribers. Even if you live in a market that does not have a live CBS feed, you can now get CBS on demand as part of your subscriptions.

Update: DIRECTV NOW just officially emailed subscribers about the addition of CBS on-demand.

This will not be the first time DIRECTV NOW has done something like this. Recently DIRECTV NOW added The CW on-demand content to all DIRECTV NOW subscribers. This means even if you do not get the channel live you can watch the shows on demand.

CBS owns The CW so it is no surprise to see them offering on demand for both networks.

At the time we are writing this it looks like AT&T is in the middle of uploading shows to DIRECTV NOW subscribers. Slowly new shows are showing up and additional episodes added.

If you want to take a look at what CBS on-demand content DIRECTV NOW is offering just search for CBS. You should find a CBS icon in your search allowing you to see all of the on-demand content currently available.

      Stephens said AT&T is looking toward new money-making opportunities for DirecTV Now in 2018. He said it will add pay-per-view options for music and movies and new features, such as Cloud DVR.
      He said it also is gearing up to turn consumer data into valuable targeted ads. In August, AT&T hired Brian Lesser to build and lead AT&T’s advertising and analytics business. He reports to AT&T chief executive Randall Stephenson. Lesser is the former chief executive of GroupM North America, a large New York-based advertising agency that’s owned by WPP.

      You can bet AT&T will try to charge extra for these additional revenue opportunities. However, the leverage has now turned to the consumer in having multiple streaming distributors. Google and their YouTubeTV with unlimited free DVR will have a big impact. Will be interesting to see how the field evolves over time and what each can offer to stand out

          Currently it does I agree, but all these services will adapt/change with time. Will be very competitive and the innovation plus channel line up/content will help differentiate consumer options over time .

            You’ll pay $15/mo. for fully functional DVR on Hulu.

            Fully functional? The free version works it just has less space. It’s not a pay to use feature it’s a pay for more storage feature.

            You are right, according to their chat line. Functions are identical as far as features (and lack thereof).

            NEITHER the 50 or 200 is “Fully Functional”.
            No both cannot ff through commercials. They both have the same features with reference to play pause and skip and so on.

    Can you fast forward through commercials on their on-demand content?

    PS Vue did this from the start. DTVN is years behind.

    Nice, but holly cow do they have a lot of commercials (and no skipping)! At least they weren’t super repetitive commercials.
