Cablevision said certain episodes of CBS primetime shows -- The Big Bang Theory, Big Brother, Blue Bloods, CSI, CSI: NY, Elementary, The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-0, Made In Jersey, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, Undercover Boss, and Vegas -- will be available for viewing the day after they first air on the network.
With the launch, primetime shows from all four major broadcast networks are available to Cablevision customers for free on demand viewing.
"CBS is home to some of the most popular shows on television, and with this launch we are extremely pleased to add the network's compelling content to our on demand offering," said Bradley Feldman, Cablevision's vice president of video product management in a statement. "We are expanding the programming available to our Optimum customers for convenient on demand viewing, and with this important launch our customers can now watch prime time shows from all four major networks whenever they want, as often as they want, within a day of their original broadcast."
The launch also includes a Fall Preview video showing highlights from upcoming new and returning CBS fall series. All titles are available to customers with Broadcast Basic service and above and a digital set-top box, and can be accessed from the Free On Demand menu on channel 502 or through the Optimum TV user interface menu.
Cablevision reached a retransmission-consent agreement with CBS on Sept. 5.
