Get Y&R and B&B On The Go! CBS Corp Launches New App To Stream New Episodes!

Courtesy/CBS

Soaps are moving into new technology, and as Prospect Park started the movement towards the future of the different platforms in which we will be able to watch our soaps, you can now add CBS to the mix!

CBS daytime fans will soon have their soaps on the go, with the CBS new App for iPhone and iPad users where you can see full episodes of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful among many others network series.  Below is the official press release announcing the latest technology development to view programming!

Official Press Release:  “CBS Corporation today announced the launch of the new CBS App for iPhone and iPad users, offering full-episode streaming of CBS programming from primetime, daytime and late night. The new app further extends the reach of the shows’ audience, providing more flexibility and opportunity for catch-up viewing and opens yet another monetization window for the Company’s industry-leading content.

The CBS App is available for immediate download from the App Store, and offers original and second-screen features for CBS’s popular shows such as NCIS, The Good Wife, CSI: Crime Investigation Scene, How I Met Your Mother, The Young and the Restless, and The Late Show With David Letterman, among many others. Daytime and late night programming will be available within 24 hours after initial airing, while most primetime programs will be available on the eighth day after broadcast.

CBS also announced it would introduce similar full-episode streaming apps for all major mobile and tablet platforms later this year, including Android and Windows 8.

“We have been methodically and strategically finding new ways to satiate the appetite for our content on new platforms, while tapping into the tremendous revenue provided by doing so,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, CBS Corporation. “Our announcement today achieves both of these objectives, while protecting our very healthy current ecosystem. In addition, by making our shows available on all the leading mobile devices out there, we are confident we will bring a whole new set of viewers to the CBS Television Network and build upon our standing as the #1 network in the business.”

“Our online viewers not only want to watch their favorite shows on multiple devices, they want deeper engagement with the programs they love,” said Jim Lanzone, President of CBS Interactive. “The new CBS App gives them the best of both worlds, letting people watch CBS shows on the best screen available for them, with a host of extra features that give them a richer viewing experience whenever and wherever they tune in.”

The new CBS App will integrate the existing CBS Connect App experience by the start of the fall TV season. At that time, the CBS App will offer integrated social feeds, live events that allow fans to engage directly with talent, and second-screen experiences synched to the broadcast with additional content for select shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-O and NCIS: Los Angeles.

Buick is the official launch partner for the new CBS App, bringing users CBS programming with reduced commercial interruption for the first several weeks after launch.  The new app further extends the CBS.com experience to viewers, where the website has led all other broadcast networks in terms of unique viewers for 51 consecutive months (comScore Video Metrix, February 2013).”

So soapers, what do you think of the new CBS App? Will you be watching episodes of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful that way if you have an iPhone or an iPad?

love this idea, but why does everybody release apps for iphones first. What about us Android users…there’s tons of us out here! I guess, as usual, we will have to wait. 🙁

I agree and I would very much like it if I could view it either on my Samsung Galaxy S II cell or my Kindle Fire. Not everyone has iPhones.

Sounds great, but what about the thousands of fans outside the US? We are languishing in our countries with networks screening episodes that are months behind. Our only option is the scour the Internet looking for sources of up to date episodes, only to have these sources continually shut down. It seems ridiculous to me that we are unable to access content directly from the US.

The app isn’t available in Canada (which isn’t too surprising) but for those that want to watch Days and Y&R you can download the Global TV app and watch them through your iOS device (not sure if its available on other formats) relatively soon after broadcast.

No time to watch that way and love to relax and watch. But right now am thinking of dumping Y and R for a while.cannot take Michaels pain and Laurens stupidity and dispise Carmine. They cheated us Likey fans out of a real bedroom scene with Lauren and Michael and show us the cheap crap with Carmine..I am so over this story it is moving way to slow am sick of Lauren chasing after a slimey greaseball bartender when a real man loves he so much. This is not good for Y and R to continue to ruin Likey just… Read more »

Sometimes they break up couples so that they can go through the “re-romancing” part & have them get back together. If you stop watching now then you’ll miss that part.

Thanks for the input and the uplifting thoughts..It better happen soon been way to long and I don’t need to wait forever . Lauren and Michael have been the best there is in soaps today and to ruin them to pimp some muscle bound ape is beyond me..Heard that the new lady running the show likes her young muscle bound mindless non actor boys..well she can have em I like men with substance

smart move on CBS’ part….. it’s keeping up with the times….

Lord knows…. we have to hear one more time… what the #1 soap is…. and/or network.

—————–

keeping it real….. this will also bode well for PP… bringing more attention to AMC and OLTL…

so, it’s a win – win for all.

I wish NBC/Sony/Days – was as proactive….

I love Carmine and Lauren’s romance ,her and Michael’s marriage was getting so boring. Wake up Soap lovers that’s what we want “excitment and fun loving romance. Lighten up people this is what a soap is all about so just sit back open your mind and just enjoy

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I will say… food for thought…. I never thought… they’d find a perfect fit/partner/wife/lover…. etc… for Michael… he was and still is so caught up in work (he’s always played the legalese Profession – so interesting)… and the Newmans… that, Lauren brought out so much more, for Christian LeBlanc… to showcase his Talent. ditto: for Tracey Bregman…. that infamous Bad girl… gets “good”… she’s prevailed and garnered her acting chops thoughout the years… and these two bring out the best in each other… I like how it was said… these two literally screen tested for the producers, if you will… Read more »

i will say… Wow! This Carmine… and w/Lauren…. steamy sultry sweaty machismo…. w/her femme fe talle…. she’s still go it…

the show… should showcase…. the “wronged” mans…story…. and point of view…

Christian LeBlanc can definately pull that off….

his journey… and seeing if Tracey Bregman… struggle and angst her wanton lust…. forbidden…. last harrah… you name it… that bad girl incarnate….

self-realization….

Hi, I have to say I am very frustrated and upset that CBS would roll out an App for IPhone and IPad users without an App for Android users. I have a Nexus 10 Tablet and cannot get through a full episode on CBS.com without my screen freezing, distorting the picture, or turning completely green. I have been a viewer of Y&R since 1992, but I’m ready to give it up. I used to listen to it on my radio and that went digital…so no more broadcast, then I went to DVR, but that takes up a lot of space… Read more »

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

Courtesy/WarnerBros

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
