CBS on Roku

Fox and NBC make it quite easy to find shows on Roku channels, but watching CBS on Roku has always been an issue.  We basically just had to stop watching popular shows like “The Big Bang Theory”, “How I met your mother” and “Mike and Molly”.  However, CBS is starting to pop up on some of the major channels now like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus.

Hulu Plus:
  • Numbers
  • The Amazing Race
  • CSI:  Miami
  • Survivor
  • MacGyver (this is an awesome throwback)
  • Twin Peaks (another fun throwback)
  • How I met your mother (not the current season)
  • Medium
  • Rules of Engagement
  • Everybody Loves Raymond
Amazon Prime Instant:
  • Jericho
  • America’s Next Top Model
  • Undercover Boss
  • Unites States of Tara
There is still no way as far as I can tell to watch “The Big Bang Theory”.  So goodbye to that show, at least for now.  Maybe it will be part of CBS’s next deal.  And I really wish I could watch NCIS on the Roku, but no luck yet with that one either.  


  1. You can watch those shows on the roku!
    All you have to do is download plex channel and then get the chrome extension on your computer!
    If there is a streaming video on abc family or and you want to watch it on roku then you just click on the plex extension tab and it saves it to the plex que on the plex channel on the roku.
    You go to the roku click on plex channel and then go to the que and WA LA! Your watching your shows!

  2. You can install plex and add cbs channel

  3. where do you get plex and how much extra is it

    1. Plex is actually a free media server.
      An the new roku 3 has the channel built right into it

    2. Just go to to get started

  4. I am trying to do this, but on my ROKU it says I don't have any media servers yet. I've added PLEX to my roku do I have to download it to my computer too?
