In the U.S., Season 17 is streaming on the CBS All Access site and app. Each episode of NCIS will be released on All Access shortly after they finish airing.

FuboTV users will also be able to watch episodes of the new season online by choosing to record the series or by watching the CBS live stream as the episode airs. Live TV streaming services like Hulu and YouTubeTV also offer a CBS live stream.

Each episode of NCIS Season 17 will first air on Tuesdays at 8pm ET/7pm CT, meaning each instalment will likely drop on All Access later that night or early Wednesday morning.

CBS All Access offers NCIS fans a number of ways to access the latest episodes. The streaming service can be accessed online and via the Android and iOS app, but is also available as an Amazon Prime plug-in.

Both the website/app and Amazon Prime versions of All Access cost $5.99 a month with ads and $9.99 without commercials. For Amazon users, this is on top of the $12.99 monthly price tag for Prime. Both versions of the CBS streaming service offer a week free trial.

Once downloaded, episodes are available for 30 days, or for 48 hours once playback starts.
