- When Does is air: Pickled airs on Thursday, November 17, at 9:00 p.m. ET on CBS
- Best Way to Watch: Paramount+ (Free Trial) provides access to CBS. Read on or check out our article, how to watch CBS, for more options
Paramount+ is the best way to stream Pickled as the streaming service provides a live feed of your local CBS station and will let you watch new episodes when they air on CBS. Paramount+ will also have the show available on-demand the day after it airs live, so you can watch Pickled on-demand if you miss an episode.
Paramount+ offers a 7-day free trial so that you can try the service with no risk. However, there are two plan options to choose from:
Paramount+ Premium: Provides live streaming access to your local CBS station so you can watch NCIS Hawaii episodes when they air. This plan also provides on-demand ad-free access to Paramount+ content, including this season of Pickled (Live CBS will still have commercials). After the 7-day free trial, the service price starts at $11.99.
Paramount+ Essential: This plan provides ad-supported on-demand episodes of Pickled the day after they air on CBS for $5.99 per month after a 7-day free trial. This plan doesn’t include live CBS, so you will have to wait a day for new episodes.
Watch New Episodes Of Pickled Free
There are two free methods to watch new episodes of Pickled if you don’t have cable. If you live close enough to a CBS broadcast tower, you can use a TV antenna, but this option doesn’t provide a way to watch on-demand. An OTA DVR offers a way to record shows from a TV antenna, but that is an added expense.
Alternatively, you can take advantage of the free trials available with the following streaming services that carry a live stream of CBS:
