To Boldly Go ... Smaller

Jim Carr
FYI:

The new Star Trek series began Sunday night with first episode on CBS
and the remainder on CBS All Access streaming service. Plus there are
plenty of other CBS shows available.

The officially supported device list <https://www.cbs.com/all-access/>
includes iPhone, iPad and AppleTV but not Mac. Windows 10 is listed.

Would I want to watch on my iPhone 7 or the 27" monitor attached to my
Mac? Bigger is always better.

Is there some technical reason for Mac not being on the list or is it a
contract issue?

Jim,

They may have grouped anything with a Mac to Windows. I found this tidbit here: 

How can I watch CBS All Access on my PC/Mac?

To watch CBS All Access on your PC/Mac (if already a subscriber):

- Go to CBS.com
- Sign into your CBS account
- Enjoy CBS All Access!

It may be just a documentation issue. It works fine on my Retina 5K iMac on macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

Alternatively, it may be that there are some Mac/display combinations that won’t support it (perhaps due to DRM considerations), and they just don’t want to document which work and which don’t.
