CBS debuts new streaming service for your gadgets

CBS debuts new streaming service for your gadgets
CBS

The good news for cable cutters just keeps on rolling in. We just heard that HBO is going to give you access to its streaming service without a cable subscription next year, and now CBS is getting in on the game, too. Now, you can watch popular shows like "The Big Bang Theory" and "NCIS" without footing the bill for a hefty cable package.

The news may not sound as groundbreaking as the HBO announcement, but it's actually a huge deal if you want to cut the cord on cable. CBS consistently puts out some of the most popular comedies and crime dramas in the country.

The deal isn't for everyone. I've already told you that you can pick up broadcast networks for free with an HD antenna, but not everyone lives close enough to those stations to pick up the signal. Click here to see which stations you could watch with an HD antenna.

For those of you out of HD antenna range, CBS is offering you a good price. You'll have to pay $6 a month for CBS All Access. It's also offering new customers a week free if they sign up now.

There are some drawbacks to the service, though. You won't get access to CBS' NFL broadcasts. Also, you can only live stream your local CBS station in select markets. All users will also have to sit through commercial breaks, which is a bit odd for a paid streaming service.
