CBS All Access, CBS’s subscription OTT service, has added another platform to its lineup with the launch of an app for the Amazon Fire TV box and Fire TV Stick, which feature a voice remote.

The service, which runs $5.99 per month,  provides access to 7,500 episodes from CBS’s current TV season, previous seasons and “classic” shows on demand, and local, live CBS feeds in more than 110 markets, reaching roughly 75% of the U.S., including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia.

CBS is currently offering new CBS All Access subs a free week-long trial.

CBS All Access is also supported on iOS and Android mobile devices, Web browsers, Apple TV, Roku players and Roku TVs, Android TV devices, and the Google Chromecast adapter, with more platforms to be added to the mix in “the coming months.”  

CBS announced in September that CBS All Access will become the first app and online offering to be certified for Nielsen’s Digital in TV Ratings measurement. CBS is also developing a new installment of the Star Trek television series for the digital/OTT service, expected to debut in January 2017.
