Is CBS All Access switching temporarily to free use really a "public service" because of the crisis?

Or is it that they're worried that "Discovery" and "Picard" have nowhere near the viewership other Star Treks have had because of the paywall, and they're hoping to get some people hooked before they reinstate fees?

    It doesn't seem to be any different from their normal 1st-month-free deal.  It seems that you still have to give them your credit card so, if you forget to cancel, they will start charging you, and, of course, you need to take the trouble of canceling, rather than just letting it expire.

    Like other streaming services, they're taking advantage of people who are at home and bored.  This represents an opportunity to increase their number of subscribers since people are consuming more streaming media than they would normally.  Picard is one of their top programs and has generated a lot of buzz and has name recognition among the general public, and most people recognize Sir Patrick's image.
