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.
