CBS and Network 10 have joined forces to bring a new subscription video-on-demand service to Aussie consumers.
Given the distinctly boring title of 10 All Access, the streaming service offers more than 7,000 episodes of shows from CBS and Network Ten.
Programs include current shows, past seasons and classic TV series including The Good Wife, NCIS, and Frasier as well as Aussie shows like Neighbours, The Bachelor Australia and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
10 All Access will also debut three new CBS original series in Australia – Tell Me A Story, One Dollar and Strange Angel. And the icing on the cake is you can live stream CBSN, the CBS News streaming service.
The list of TV shows on 10 All Access is kind of like those times after Christmas when you make a random dinner from all the various leftovers you have and before you know it you’re sitting down to a lunch of turkey, fruit cake and devilled eggs.
The main difference is that post-Christmas leftovers are great, while 10 All Access kind of sucks.
Network 10 CEO Paul Anderson doesn’t think so: “10 All Access gives us a fantastic new avenue to engage audiences with premium entertainment any way they want it.”
Sure it is Paul, sure it is. The good news is that he said 10 All Access will improve in the near future.
“We’ll continue to evolve 10 All Access with more great content to binge on and more product features to enhance the viewing experience. We are just getting started.”
I guess Network 10 and CBS are going with the old ‘start terrible so that anything we do looks better’ approach. Kudos.
If they don’t do something about their lacklustre library soon, fans will be giving their red roses to the competition. The content issue combined with a steep price for what the service offers means 10 All Access is going to have an uphill battle to gain a user base.
At $9.99, the service is within a few dollars of Stan and Netflix and Kayo Sports, a sports streaming service launched last week. Each of these services offer better features and libraries.
