What you need to know
- CBS All Access won't be available on third-generation Apple TV boxes from next month.
Third-generation Apple TV users who watch content via CBS All Access are going to have to find a new way to enjoy their shows soon. As of March 4, CBS All Access will become Paramount+. And that means you'll need an Apple TV 4K to watch.
CBS began warning people today, as noted by MacRumors, with a message popping up to deliver the bad news.
This news follows the blow that YouTube will also require an Apple TV 4K soon, leaving AirPlay as the only way to enjoy your favorite YouTubers if you're using a third-generation device.
