CBS stands for Columbia Broadcasting System and like its slogan suggests “America’s Most Watched Network,” it ranks amongst the big three networks in the country. CBS is headquartered in New York City’s CBS Building, with production facilities in Los Angeles. The network is sometimes called the “Eye Network,” mainly stemming from the logo, which has been in use since 1951. The network broadcasts an array of entertainment and sports programs. Some of the most notable sports programs are Thursday Night Football, The NFL Today, Southeastern Conference, SEC Championship game, etc.

Watch CBS Without Cable
CBS is mostly available via pay-tv services across the US, and it has been this way for decades. Even today, your best bet of watching CBS would be via a regular cable service, and hopefully, you’d be able to stream if the service offers its own streaming apps. That said mainstream streaming services like Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW don’t yet have CBS as part of their packages. That may change soon owing to the fact that both services are seeing an increasing number of people taking to live streaming services because they are cheaper and more reliable. Sling TV starts at $20 a month with DIRECTV NOW starting at $35.
You can try out both Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW for free using the links below:

Streaming CBS with the Official App
The official CBS app is called ‘All Access’ and gives subscribers to the channel complete access to a live stream as well as specific programs. However, if you are not a subscriber to CBS and would just like to stream the service on your mobile device, then it costs just $6 a month for the subscription. That said CBS is known to change their pricing frequently, so it’s always a good idea to check their pricing before deciding to subscribe to the app’s streaming feature.
Which Sports Events are Streamed on CBS?
CBS streams many sports events like the NCAA Basketball, NFL games, Super Bowl, Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, etc.
