Review: CBS streaming not worth cutting cord, yet

The service is a good start. But the network needs to do more to make it worth the money […] You must be within the coverage area of a CBS-owned station in 14 markets, though the network is trying to make deals with independent CBS affiliates too. Some sporting events, namely pro football, aren’t included. Sports is a chief reason people want live TV, so this is a major gap. CBS does have streaming rights, though, for Southeastern Conference college football. My biggest complaint is the lack of controls for pausing or rewinding. That’s something I now expect from online services, even for “live” TV. […] With a subscription, you’re also getting the entire current season for many shows. You still get ads, but I found I was getting one 30-second spot fewer per each commercial break. […] CBS has an extensive library of shows, including some produced by Paramount before that business split off as part of Viacom Inc. Many of the shows don’t require an All Access subscription, but if you do subscribe you get more of these classics — all without ads. […] As currently designed, I don’t see myself renewing. That might change if CBS starts making shows available on streaming-TV devices such as Apple TV and Fire TV, the way Hulu does with its $8-a-month subscription. Currently, All Access requires a Mac or Windows computer or an Apple or Android mobile device. – Anick Jesdanun,Associated Press via U.S. News and World Report
