‘Candy Crush’ TV Show Live Stream: How to Watch CBS Online

62


Candy Crush fans will be very pleased as the digital game moves to television, with Mario Lopez as the host. The show premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, but not everyone has access to a television. On the show, contestants will be guided through the live-action casual puzzle game, while there will also be three “Saga” games for players to play. Here’s the breakdown of events:

Candy Crush Saga – Every week, contestants will have four mini-challenges to complete and they will mimic big challenges that contestants must complete on the TV show.

Candy Crush Soda Saga – Players choose between four teams each week, including contestants from the show. Each team sets a target and an in-game tracker will figure out how they’re doing and will determine the winning team.

Candy Crush Jelly Saga – Players will be timed and have to complete just one challenge.

Now that at-home players and viewers have the rundown, let’s check out how to watch the show online.

If you would like to watch the show but you can’t get to a TV or don’t have cable, the only legal way to stream the Candy Crush premiere live without a cable subscription — or a subscription to a cable-replacement service (like Sony’s Vue) — is via CBS All Access, a service that streams live CBS broadcasts in most U.S. markets.

The service costs $5.99 a month, but you can stream Candy Crush tonight for free via the service’s free 7-day trial. You’ll have to enter your valid U.S. credit card information to sign up, but you won’t be charged if you cancel your subscription before the trial ends.
