Canada becomes the first international market in which All Access is available.

“The launch of CBS All Access in Canada is a significant milestone for the service,” said Marc DeBevoise, president and COO, CBS Interactive, in a statement. “We’ve experienced incredible growth domestically and see a great opportunity to bring the service and CBS’ renowned programming directly to international audiences across a range of platforms and devices. We look forward to continuing to expand CBS All Access across additional platforms, with even more content, and bringing the service to other markets around the world.”

In Canada is available at cbsallaccess.ca, on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices, and on Apple TV and Chromecast. CBS All Access will be launching on other connected devices in Canada in the coming months.

CBS All Access launched in Oct. 2014. CBS recently said that All Access and the Showtime OTT product combined had more than 5 million subscribers in the first quarter of 2018. CBS expects that the two services will have 8 million subs combined by 2020.
