How To Watch NCIS Live Online Without Cable

Cutting the cable subscription can be nerving if you still want to be able to watch your favorite shows. Without cable, it can be still difficult to catch your favorite ones, as a lot of services that “claim” to let you watch them, such as NCIS, require you to login with a cable provider. However, with the advent of streaming services (and how popular they’ve become), you can still watch NCIS without the cable provider ever interfering.

If you still want to make sure you can watch NCIS after you cut the cable subscription, follow along below and we’ll show you how.

Fire TV and Roku

NCIS airs on CBS, so if you’re looking to keep up with your NCIS schedule, whatever streaming device you have, you’ll need to make sure you can download the CBS app on it. Whether you choose to pick up Amazon’s Fire TV or the Roku Ultra, you’ll be able to download the CBS All Access app.

With the CBS All Access app, you’ll be able to watch all of the CBS content you want, including NCIS. It does cost an extra $5.99 per month, but it’s far cheaper than the cable subscription, and you can stop your subscription at anytime without any fees. And, if you’re just looking for NCIS, this is your cheapest option, as actual streaming services start out at around $20 per month, but you get a whole lot more channels.

Hulu with Live TV

As far as watching NCIS on streaming services go, your options are limited. However, Hulu’s new “With Live TV” package offers CBS, allowing you to catch NCIS (when it airs) on any of your favorite devices — your Android phone, tablet, computer, smart TV, you name it.

Hulu with Live TV is one of the more pricey options here, costing you a whole $39.99 per month. In addition to being able to watch Live TV online, you do get access to Hulu’s entire streaming library as well. And for those that aren’t too keen on the idea of dropping $39.99 a month on Hulu with Live TV, the company does offer a free trial so that you can give it a go before you commit from month-to-month.

YouTube TV

Google has also been able to secure a contract with CBS to air CBS shows like NCIS (in supported markets). YouTube TV runs a tad bit cheaper than Hulu with Live TV, coming in at $34.99. You’ll get plenty of more TV channels than just CBS that you can watch over your phone, tablet, computer, and Smart TV. Again, after dropping your cable subscription, it is quite a bit of money to continue handing over for TV, so YouTube does also offer a free trial. Not only that, but you can cancel at anytime you’d like.

You can get started with the free trial at the link below.

PlayStation Vue

The last place you’ll be able to watch NCIS (or CBS) on is Sony’s PlayStation Vue service. However, you won’t be able to watch it live. Ever since PlayStation Vue went nationwide (here in the US), a few companies dropped the live programming, instead allowing Vue customers to watch those programs on-demand 24-hours after they air.

So, while you won’t be able to watch NCIS live, Vue customers will still be able to watch it at least 24 hours after it airs. That’s a whole lot better than, say, Netflix where you might have to wait a whole year for the entire new season to arrive.

You can sign-up for the cheapest PlayStation Vue package “Access” for $39.99 per month. You’ll be able to watch on your Android smartphone or tablet, Smart TV, streaming device, PlayStation, you name it. And, if you’re hesitant while looking at the price, Sony also offers a free trial for PlayStation Vue just to show you what you’re getting.

As you can see, CBS doesn’t air on a whole lot of streaming services. You’ll be able to catch it on Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV, and you’ll also be able to at least watch NCIS 24 hours after the episodes air on Vue, but that’s about your only option as far as software goes. Your best option is to go out and purchase the Fire TV or Roku, download the CBS All Access app, and sign-up for the $5.99 per month subscription with CBS. It’s a super cheap way to do it.
