What is CBS?

CBS is one of biggest major television networks in the US (if not the biggest) and is part of the so-called “Big Three” along with ABC and NBC). Some of the most popular TV shows in the US are aired on CBS.

You can stream some shows from CBS for free, usually 4-5 episodes in each series. These are shows like NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, Survivor, Elementary, Blue Bloods and MacGyver to name a few.

Their entire TV catalog CBS catalog is also available via CBS All Access, which is their premium subscription service. We recommend signing up for the service via a US iTunes account, but they also allow signups directly with a credit card, but we haven’t tested it.
