How to change a CBS All Access Subscription plan

If you are one of those who don’t like to be stocked by ads when seeing a show, you might want to change your CBS all subscription plan. But if you are on the sides of watching more for less, even if it would cost your shows to be covered by all the commercials in the whole United States, you might want to stick to a plan that is not Commercial Free to save money or stick to it if you are in already.

CBS all access has just two plans for her users. They are Limited Commercials and Commercial-Free with a monthly price of $5.99 and $9.99, respectively. But on 12 months round, you can get the former for $59.99 while the latter would cost $9.99.

As you much as you can see in the price differences; people would still switch from Limited Commercial to Commercial-Free just have a view free of commercials. Unbeknown of them that Commercial-Free still has an ad placed on them, but only on their live TV.

CBS preferences

Preferences are influenced by perceiving changes in our environment, and I believe that is the only explanation CBS users are going to give for wanting to pay another $4 for a plan where they will get the same service they get from their current plan.

Adding to this, I also believe that if one could choose CBS over the likes of Netflix and Hulu with more grand shows, an extra would not be too big for him to give to get all he wants in one piece. This is because most CBS users are real fans who would give a little more to get all the CBS packages in a good shape.

Changing your plan

If you are already signed up to CBS All Access plan, it implies you have a current plan running, maybe the limited commercial. If you wish to change to the Commercial Free just visit . This is their official subscription plan page where you will choose an alternative.

After a swap and confirmation, CBS takes note of your plan and preps to bill you when your bill rolls up.

This is the same method that should be used by Amazon prime users who are using CBS All Access on Prime Video. They have to go through to change their subscription plan. It would reflect on Amazon Prime.

Showtime CBS users

Changing your CBS All Access on is more flexible than changing it on Amazon prime. This is because it is integrated on showtime in such a way that changes in the subscription can be made and billed without one going to

To make this change, get into your account on showtime and click on settings. Open the option “manage CBS All Access plan”. Form here you can choose your alternative plan, filling in your password, then select “update subscription” to finish.

This is adjustable: you can move to another plan after your previous move. That is, you can switch from Commercial free to Limited Commercial after your initial change. It is flexibility deemed pivotal by CBS because of the nature of their plan so that users wouldn’t have much to regret when they notice that the difference between their current subscription and the previous one is a matter of ads.

Also, if you get tired of CBS or find a better alternative streaming service, you can cancel your subscription, and this only takes a few steps.

PS: There could be variation for this for specific smart TV users or people using intermediaries like Amazon Fire Stick.
