NCIS season 20

NCIS season 20 is set to premiere on Monday, September 19, at 21:00 PT / ET. Fans haven’t had to wait too long, but given the events of the nineteenth season’s finale, it can’t have been easy! Below, we’ll explain how to stream new episodes of NCIS online, wherever you are in the world.

We’ll only be recommending official sources for watching NCIS season 20 online. Unlicensed streams tend to be low-quality with performance issues and a tendency to get taken down for copyright violation. On the plus side, there are lots of affordable, legitimate ways to watch NCIS online and we’ll list them below.

NCIS season 20 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. As such, you’ll need a VPN if you want to stream your usual channels while traveling abroad.

How to watch NCIS season 20 online from anywhere

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) encrypt your traffic, improving your online security and preventing ISP throttling. Additionally, they assign users a different IP address. This makes it appear as if you’re accessing a website or service from another location, allowing you to access your usual content as you travel.

Here’s how to live stream NCIS season 20 from abroad using a VPN:

  1. First, you’ll need a VPN. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two high-quality, reliable alternatives for streaming.
  2. Sign up with the VPN before downloading and installing the appropriate VPN app (or browser extension) for your streaming device.
  3. Log in to the VPN app and connect to a server located in the US. You’ll then have a US IP address, allowing you to access CBS (now Paramount Plus) online from anywhere.
  4. Go to CBS and sign in via your TV provider. Don’t have cable? You can live stream CBS cable-free via the Paramount+ streaming service.
  5. You may have to clear your browser’s cookies for CBS or Paramount+ to recognise your new IP address and virtual location. If it still doesn’t work, try switching servers.

NCIS season 20 will air live. It’s a good idea to test your VPN ahead of the premiere. This way, if you have any trouble streaming the content while connected, you should have enough time to troubleshoot the issue with your VPN’s customer support service team.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30 day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for CBS with no restrictions for a month - perfect if you want to test it out with CBS while on vacation.

There are no hidden terms - just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

NCIS season 20 will air exclusively on CBS . If you have a US cable TV subscription, you can watch online by going to CBS (via the website or app) and signing in via your TV provider (you’ll be asked to provide an email address or username and password). Once logged in, you should have access to live and on-demand content, including NCIS.

Fortunately, there are also ways to stream CBS without having to commit to a long-term cable contract. The most affordable option is to subscribe to Paramount Plus (Paramount+). To watch CBS live, you’ll need to choose the Premium plan which costs $9.99 USD a month or $99.99 a year (this works out cheaper at just $8.33/month). Subcribers can also watch new episodes on-demand the day after they air. Currently, a one-week free trial is available for new customers.

Note that you can also watch CBS with a subscription to one of the following TV streaming services: FuboTVHulu with Live TV, and YouTube TV. All of these services cost around $64.99 each month and include a short trial period.

However you choose to watch CBS, you’ll need a US IP address in order to watch it. Traveling abroad? This requires connecting to a VPN server in the US. Still not decided which VPN is right for you? We recommend NordVPN which comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it for yourself, risk-free.
