Want to watch live CBS online for free? Finally there is a way to access their database legally without cable. As you must know CBS is one of the most watched, and most popular channel in the US. From hugely popular shows like NCIS Los Angeles to The Big Bang Theory, live sport show like NFL, College Football, NCAA basketball and The PGA tour, CBS has it all.
If you are a cord cutter and you’re waiting on the day when CBS’ massive on-air content is available to streaming services like Sling TV and Hulu, you might have to wait a long time.
You see streaming services like DirecTV Now and Sling TV haven’t quite yet have the rights to stream CBS content on their online subscription package. Playstation Vue subscribers do have access to CBS live content, but they are only available in certain cities like New York.
The fact of the matter is it’s quite difficult to stream CBS TV shows legally. Many have tried to broker a deal with CBS, but they’ve failed badly. Sling TV, DirecTV Now and Apple are some of the notable streaming platforms that tried to forge a deal with CBS, but could not.
Alternatives to watch CBS Via The Internet For Free
CBS execs are well aware that their TV content are in high demand so they created their own streaming programming called CBS All Access.
CBS All Access is really competitively priced, similar to that of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon prime, but the only difference is that they stream live TV.
CBS smartly created this platform to allow cord cutters to access their hugely popular database for a small fee. Test driving CBS all Access isn’t costly at all because you can try it out for 7 days before you are charged anything. The entry level monthly fee is $5.99 with ads and $9.99 without ads.
After the 7 day period, if you don’t like it, simply move on to a different streaming service. It’s that simple. The great thing about being a cord cutter is you have way more options than you had maybe five years ago. You don’t have to miss major sporting events either because of not having cable Television.
Stream CBS on Youtube Unplugged
Unlike other streaming services, Google have forged a shocking deal with CBS that will allow them to live stream TV shows in their new “Youtube Unplugged” service.
Google has some how convinced CBS’ execs that their new service is uniquely positioned to stream their content. The figures on how much Google will have to pay to stream CBS’ content was not available, but knowing the value of shows like The Big Big Theory, I’d say the cost was enormous.
Watch CBS Live Over The Air (OTA) Antenna
Another alternative way to stream CBS online is by investing in a digital antenna. CBS is a broadcast network so their live TV show content is made available through local TV stations. Getting a digital antenna isn’t hard at all. They are available in a lot of places online so make sure you do your research before you buy one.
