You can watch CBS on Roku, but you'll need a subscription — here's how to use the CBS All Access app

AmazonYou only need one app to watch CBS on your Roku.

CBS All Access is a subscription streaming service that offers many original and syndicated CBS shows on smart TVs and streaming media devices like Roku. If you don’t have access to CBS via an over-the-air antenna or basic cable package, you can watch most CBS content by subscribing to CBS All Access.

CBS All Access is available at two subscription levels: A Limited Commercial Plan for $US6 per month, and a Commercial Free Plan, which costs $US10 per month.

Both plans include the same content, which includes programming from the broadcast version of CBS and exclusive content made just for CBS All Access. The only difference is the amount of commercials.
