Some information:
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / September 8, 2016 12:37 PM PDT

Beside Android, iOS, Amazon Kindle, and Windows 10, according to their website these are the devices, that can access CBS All Access:
Apple TV
Roku
Chromecast
Android TV
Fire TV
Xbox 360
Xbox One

You may want to ask them directly on why they don't support have the app available on Samsung assuming you are referring to Samsung TVs specifically. Here is the customer service form:

I hope this helps!

Hello, Libertas2!
App availability depends on the app developers, Samsung only owns the platform. It would be up to CBS to develop an app for the Smart TV.

In reply to: Re: CBS App

OK, so even though there is an app for ROKU and probably firestick etc., unless CBS makes an app specifically for Samsung, it wont exist?

Is that how the circle/process works?

If so it us unimaginable that CBS has chosen not to have an app for what has to be about HALF the TV's in America.

Not possible in my mind.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
