Are new episodes available at the same time as the television broadcast?
Yes, you can choose to stream CBC TV live on your favourite device or watch on demand. New episodes are available on demand the same day as they air on TV.
Can I watch episodes before they air on TV?
Some full episodes or full seasons will be available to stream before they air on CBC Television. Some series are exclusively available on CBC Gem, like Top of the Lake Season 1 and Great British Baking Show Season 6.
What is the Sign In symbol that appears on the top of some episodes and the local CBC TV live streams?
When you see an item with the sign in symbol, it means that only CBC members can access this content. It’s free to sign up!
Why isn’t a show available anymore?
Some programs and movies are only available for a limited time due to licensing agreements. An example of this is Coronation Street, where the latest episodes are only available for 30 days.

Why can’t I find the show that I’m looking for?
We do not always have the rights to stream a show live or on demand that’s broadcast on CBC. Sometimes we may have the rights to live stream a show or an event but cannot offer this same program on demand.
