The relaunch will now feature a dedicated hub for ViacomCBS' cable properties including Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, and Comedy Central.

CBS All Access reportedly has 8 million to 9 million subscribers in the U.S., so it's nowhere near the size of Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, or even Hulu.

The service cost $9.99 without ads or $5.99 with ads and for many it was preferable to buy a latte than it was to add yet another streaming service to their monthly bills.

Yet another streaming service is on the way to Australia, and it might see the Star Trek series booted from Netflix and Amazon.
