CBS All Access Hopes The Twilight Zone Will Grow Its Base Before New Streaming Rivals Arrive

Company plans to triple its OTT subscribers by 2022

As rivals Disney, Comcast, Apple and AT&T prepare their own streaming services to launch over the next year, CBS All Access has enjoyed a three-year head start, as it builds its slate of originals and its subscriber base. In February, CBS said that CBS All Access and its Showtime OTT offering now have a combined 8 million subscribers (CBS All Access accounts for roughly half that), and the company plans to triple that number by 2022, raising its subscriber projections to 25 million.

CBS All Access is counting on its reboot of The Twilight Zone, executive produced and narrated by Jordan Peele, to help meet those lofty goals, especially before those new streaming competitors begin arriving later this year.
