The first series of Game On will premiere on May 27 at 8 PM EST (5 PM PST). At the moment, we don’t know how many episodes there’ll be, but A League of Their Own, the British game show that this is based on, usually had 8–10 episodes per season. This iteration is sure to put its own spin on things though. Below, we’ll explain how to stream every episode of Game On live online.

You should note that we’re only recommending you use official sources. Although there’ll likely be unlicensed streams available, these are often laggy and prone to being taken offline for copyright infringement. These streams frequently have very low-quality video too. On the plus side, there are plenty of ways to watch Game On season one legitimately, which means there’s no reason to resort to unauthorized sources. In fact, if you’re in the US, you can even watch Game On online for free.

Game On will only be broadcast on region-locked streaming services. As such, if you’re traveling outside North America at the moment, you’ll need a VPN to watch on your usual services.

How to stream Game On season 1 abroad with a VPN

Never used a VPN before? Not to worry; unblocking geo-restricted content is actually very simple, just follow the steps below.

Here’s how to live stream Game On from abroad (outside US):

  1. First of all, you’ll have to sign up for a suitable VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN but NordVPN and CyberGhost are two strong, value-for-money alternatives.
  2. Download the VPN app and install it on any device you’d like to stream on. Most providers allow five or so simultaneous connections.
  3. Log in and connect to a server in the US or Canada (depending on which service you’d like to watch on). Generally, the closer your chosen server to your actual location, the higher your speeds.
  4. Visit CBS or Global TV and sign in (or create an account if you haven’t already). Note that to sign up, you may need a payment method linked to a local address.
  5. Finally, try to play a video. It should start right away but if it doesn’t, you can solve most issues by clearing your browser’s cookies, reloading the page, or trying another server.

Since this show will air live, we strongly recommend spending a few minutes ahead of time making sure your VPN works as expected. If you run into any problems, this approach ensures that you’ll have all the time you need to get help from your VPN’s customer support team.

How to watch Game On season 1 for free on US TV

This series will be shown exclusively on CBS in the US. Here’s the good news: you can actually watch new episodes of Game On for free on the CBS website, provided you don’t mind waiting a few hours after they air.

If you really want to stream Game On live online, there are a few ways to do so. The easiest option for most people will be to sign in with your cable provider details, but if you don’t have cable TV, you can log in using a CBS All Access, Hulu, fuboTV, or YouTube TV account. All of these services include a free trial period but unfortunately, none is long enough for you to watch the whole series live. We recommend signing up for either CBS All Access or Hulu, since, at $5.99 USD per month, these options are considerably less expensive than the other two.

CBS, Hulu, YouTube TV, and fuboTV are only available in the US. This means that if you’re traveling abroad, you’ll have to connect to an American VPN server to access them. ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to stream Game On from anywhere, completely risk-free. If you’re not impressed, just cancel to claim a full refund.

Can I live stream Game On outside of the US?

Game On’s first season will initially only see a very limited international release. However, if the show becomes a hit, it’s possible that future seasons could air in other countries.

Canada

Canadian viewers can live stream Game On season one on Global TV. New episodes will air at the same time that they do in the US (8 PM EST every Wednesday from May 27). If you have a cable TV subscription, you can simply log in to the Global TV website and watch as much as you like at no added cost.

It’s also possible to watch Game On online without cable, although not for free. First off, you’ll need an Amazon Prime Video account, which costs $7.99 CAD per month. Next, you have to sign up for the STACKTV addon, which is an extra $12.99 per month. This lets you watch a dozen of Canada’s most popular channels (including Global TV) online.

Global TV and STACKTV are region-locked and can only normally be accessed from within Canada. However, by using a VPN, it’s possible to use these platforms while abroad.

What is Game On and how does it work?

Game On is an American spinoff of a British TV show called A League of Their Own. This series has a bit of everything: it’s mostly a sports quiz show, but there’s a strong focus on comedy and even if you’re not really into sports, it’s likely you’ll find the show enjoyable.

Essentially, there are two teams, one of which will be led by Venus Williams and the other by Rob Gronkowski. A rotating cast of guest stars will fill the remaining spots each week; we know that the premiere will feature Gabriel Iglesias and J.R. Smith, for instance.

These teams go head to head in a three-round competition. First, they rank athletes on specific criteria, before guessing which athlete made a particular comment about their sport. Finally, there’s an endurance round where two team members answer questions while the third undergoes a physical challenge. While there is technically a winning team every episode, there’s no real prize, and teams are encouraged to prioritize humor over point-scoring, similar to other British panel shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats or Mock the Week.
