Older Apple TVs Are Losing CBS All Access, Paramount+ Won’t be Supported

Just last week we reported that older generation Apple TVs were losing support for the YouTube app. Now Apple is letting customers know the same is happening with CBS All Access. Third Generation Apple TVs will no longer be able to support the app as it rebrands into Paramount+ this spring.

Here’s the notice 3rd Gen Apple TV users are seeing pop up on their screens, first spotted by MacRumors.

We wanted to let you know that starting March 4, 2021, CBS All Access will no longer be available on this device. On March 4, CBS All Access will become Paramount+. You can watch Paramount+ on Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, iPhone, or iPad. With AirPlay, you can also stream Paramount+ from your iOS device directly to any Apple TV (3rd generation or later) or AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV

Although CBS All Access is getting an upgrade to Paramount+, older Apple TVs are being left in the dust when it comes to compatibility. If you want to stream the new Paramount+ on a 3rd Gen Apple TV, users will have to opt for AirPlay.

Paramount+ is set to launch March 4. The streaming service will include content from the company’s portfolio, including broadcast, news, sports, and its popular entertainment brands, like MTV, BET, Comedy Central, CBS, Paramount Television Studios, Nickelodeon, and Smithsonian Channel. The service will also include movies from Paramount Pictures.
