LOS ANGELES (Asia One)—U.S. television network CBS on Thursday became the latest broadcaster to launch a stand-alone streaming service, offering viewers without cable subscriptions access to shows including “Star Trek” and “Twin Peaks.”

The move came a day after U.S. media giant Time Warner announced a similar service launching next year for premium cable broadcaster HBO, which has hit shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Girls.”

The CBS All Access service – which will offer 15 primetime shows a day after they air as well as thousands of past episodes of shows like “The Good Wife,” “Cheers” and “CSI: Miami” – will cost US$5.99 (S$7.60) a month and is available immediately.
