HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – CBS is making a bold move in the digital video space.

On Thursday, the network announced the launch of CBS All Access, a new digital subscription service offering video on demand and live streaming.

CBS All Access will cost you $5.99 a month and you can try it out through CBS.com and with mobile devices using the CBS App for iOS and Android.

The subscription service will give viewers greater freedom to watch CBS content when and where they want. It’s also timely in that more people are “cutting the cord” of cable service and opting for streaming services like Hulu or Amazon.

There are additional perks as well…

Fans of “Big Brother” won’t have to pay extra to stream 24/7 live feeds of the show.

The CBS announcement comes on the heels of a big announcement from HBO Wednesday. The entertainment provider revealed that it would make its popular streaming video service HBO Go available as a stand-alone product, instead of having to purchase access through cable.
