How to Watch NCIS Season 20 Online From Anywhere

By Gabriela Vatu / September 19, 2022

If you're an NCIS fan, you're in for a treat because the new season is coming with a two-hour crossover special with NCIS: Hawai'i!

It isn't the first time, and likely won't be the last when we see the two shows go hand in hand for a suspense-filled episode or two. As you may remember, Season 19 of NCIS ended with Special Agent Alden Parker on the run alongside ex-wife Vivian, who isn't one of the good guys, as we find in the last few seconds of the episode. 

Over in Hawai'i, the first season wrapped up with the team discovering The Raven is on the island of Oahu and planning to attack the Rim of the Pacific Exercises, the world's largest international maritime warfare exercise. The new seasons for both shows will kick off with the D.C. NCIS team traveling to Hawai'i once more to stop this attack. At the same time, the teams will be working to clear Parker's name. 

In the 20th season of NCIS, we also hope to see the return of Gibbs, although a permanent return seems less and less likely, no matter how much fans are hoping for this. The new season will see the old cast returning, including Sean Murray, Brian Dietzen, Wilmer Valderrama, Diona Reasonover, Katrina Law, Gary Cole, Rocky Carroll, and David McCallum. Fingers crossed, Mark Harmon will return for some episodes, at least. 

NCIS Season 20 premieres on September 19, 2022, at 9 PM ET on CBS. The show will also be available for streaming live and on-demand on Paramount+.

How to Watch NCIS Season 20 Online From Anywhere

Watching the 20th season of NCIS online is not going to be super hard to do, but you do need to remember that when you're traveling abroad, extra steps are required as all live TV platforms are geoblocked, so you can't access them without some extra help. You can watch NCIS Season 20 with the help of a VPN since these tools can help spoof your IP address after routing your internet connection through a server of your choice. 

Our favorite tool of this kind is ExpressVPN, a VPN that features thousands of servers worldwide and some top-of-the-line encryption protocols. Even better, ExpressVPN works with platforms like Netflix, Paramount+, Hulu, or Disney+, which have geo-restrictions that are notoriously difficult to bypass. Thanks to the company's money-back guarantee, you can try ExpressVPN for 30 days RISK-FREE

You have to start by subscribing to ExpressVPN (49% discount and 3 months FREE), which you can do by visiting the ExpressVPN website. You have to create an account, pick your subscription and pay for it. Next, install the app for your device or system, launch the tool, pick a server that's in your home country and turn it on. This will lift all geo-restrictions, so you can watch NCIS online!

How to Watch NCIS Season 20 Online in the US

NCIS is a CBS original show, and you can easily stream it on Paramount+, which is CBS' streaming service. It features two tiers: the ad-supported version costs $4.99 per month, while the ad-free version will cost you $9.99 per month. If you want to watch NCIS episodes live, however, you're going to need to get the Premium version since that one features the live stream. 

Paramount+ is also available with Amazon Prime Video, which you can add like any other Prime Channel. This will cost you an extra $9.99 per month on top of the Prime subscription. Alternatively, you can go for Paramount+ and Showtime as a bundle, and prices start from $11.99 per month.

Another great option to watch NCIS on CBS is via Hulu+Live TV. The service comes with a lot of networks and a plan that costs $69.99 per month. The best thing is that you'll get access to a ton of content via Hulu's VOD service, Disney+, and ESPN+. 

Another platform that can help you can watch NCIS online is fuboTV. This service features CBS in all its plans, and you should know the cheapest option costs $69.99 per month and includes a 7-day free trial. 

CBS is also available on DirecTV Stream as the channel is part of all plans on this service. The cheapest plan here will cost you $54.99 for the first two months, although the price goes up to $69.99 thereafter. If you're looking for more networks, however, you'll need to shell out more money as the other plans are a lot more expensive. 

You can also watch it on the CBS website and CBS app by logging in with your TV provider credentials. We also have to mention that since CBS is a local channel, it won't be available across the United States. In such situations, your best bet is to use a VPN and connect to a server located in a big US city, and then you'll get all the local networks available in that area. 

Additionally, if you plan on traveling outside of the United States, you're going to need a good VPN if you want to watch the latest episodes of NCIS Season 20. Simply pick a US-based server when you turn on the VPN, and you're good to go.
