You can watch live broadcasts of The National on our site, as well as the previously aired episodes on demand.
Please note The National does not air on Saturdays, and therefore there will not be a video on demand episode available on Sundays.
Video On Demand
The video on demand episode can be found here on gem.cbc.ca (no sign in required), or on the CBC Gem app by searching for 'The National', and is posted around 1:30 am EST. A free CBC Gem account is required to access this content.
Posted episodes will remain online for a period of 48 hrs.
Once again, please note The National does not air on Saturdays.
You can also watch The National as it airs via our regional live television streams at gem.cbc.ca/live or in the LIVE section of the CBC Gem app.
