Find out how to access CBS programming in Canada.

One of the most popular TV channels in the US, CBS is unfortunately not available in Canada. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy CBS programming over here.

Sometimes referred to as the Eye Network, CBS is one of the Big Three American broadcast television networks, along with ABC and NBC. Popular CBS programming includes hit shows NCIS, Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory and Madam Secretary. As for news, the network is especially known for its popular shows 60 Minutes and 48 Hours, as well as late-night talk shows The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden. CBS Sports programming offers extensive coverage of the NFL, as well as NCAA basketball and PGA golf.

Thanks to CBS All Access, you can binge-watch tons of CBS TV series on demand in Canada, on your own schedule, including original productions and episodes express from the US. Additionally, there are several other ways to access CBS programming, either on television or online. Finally, you can use a VPN to get access to a US CBS stream by bypassing geographical restrictions; it’s not particularly advisable, but it does the trick.

Binge CBS series with CBS All Access

CBS All Access launched in Canada in 2018, marking the streaming service’s first international expansion outside the US. Priced at $5.99/month, CBS All Access offers a vast catalogue of past and current CBS productions, including NCIS, Hawaii Five-O, Madam Secretary and Bull, as well as classic shows like Beverly Hills 90210 and 7th Heaven. Original productions like The Good Fight, Tell Me a Story and Strange Angel are also included in the mix.

The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek: Discovery are missing, but that’s just because CBS signed broadcasting deals with other services in Canada prior to the CBS All Access launch. However, you can stream several seasons of The Big Bang Theory and the first instalment of Star Trek: Discovery on Crave.

Additionally, CBS All Access allows you to watch current and past editions of 60 Minutes and 48 Hours, as well as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Alternative sources for CBS programming

If you’re keen to keep up with CBS programming via television, you’re in luck. CTV has the rights to several popular CBS series, including The Big Bang Theory, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds and Young Sheldon.

If you’re interested in CBS Sports for the NFL, you can stream every game of the season in HD via DAZN. On TV, NFL prime time games can also be viewed on TSN and RDS. Sunday Night Football and eleven Thursday Night Football games also available on CTV/CTV2. Amazon Prime Video streams the Thursday games broadcast by CTV/CTV2 as well.

Use a VPN to stream CBS live

If all else fails, you can use a VPN service to bypass geographical restrictions and access live streams of CBS in the US. Several US streaming services carry CBS streams, so you can take your pick. The list includes Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV and PlayStation Vue. Of course, the US version of CBS All Access also comes with a CBS live stream.
