From Law and Order creator Dick Wolf comes an action-drama centering on the men and women working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. FBI is a police-procedural with the highest stakes in the country.

Set in the FBI’s New York branch, the series follows the investigations made by the local elite unit. Special Agent Maggie Bell is part of a multigenerational law enforcement family and commits deeply to those she’s sworn to protect. Her partner Agent Omar Adom “O. A.” Zidan is a West Point graduate recently recruited from the DEA. Together, along with a team of equally brilliant agents, they investigate everything from organized crime to international terrorism.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream FBI.

FBI Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “Peregrym fits as the quintessential Wolf heroine: Broody, brunette, powering through her angst, which in typical Wolf fashion is considerable and grows exponentially. The drama’s explosions are harrowing, and the score adds an appropriate amount of dread to the grim investigation.” –Mark A. Perigard, Boston Herald

How to stream FBI

CBS is available on a few of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.

FBI on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream CBS because you also gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.

FBI on FuboTV

FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind, making it a popular pick for those looking to watch CBS. There are different channel packages available, whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. In addition to the niche entertainment options, all the great cable channels you need are there too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC.

FBI on Sling TV

Sling offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $15 per month. To be clear, CBS is not normally available on Sling, but through the magic of AirTV, you can get all your local channels in a system that plays nice with Sling. A complete AirTV set up will allow you to get all your local channels and free you up to choose Sling—if a lack of CBS is what’s holding you back.

How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge your CBS affiliate and other local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—gives Sling users the ability to access all local channels to add to whichever Sling package is the best fit for them.

FBI on AT&T TV Now

There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, so using the company to stream CBS seems like an obvious choice. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.

FBI on YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: In addition to CBS, there are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels. Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) entertained for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
