How To Watch CBB If You Don't Get IFC

Post by TMBJon »

A lot of members of this forum seem to want to watch the show but they don't have IFC. So I thought it would be helpful to create a definitive guide to watching the show if you don't have IFC as part of your cable package.

First, the entire show is now on Netflix up to episode 90, meaning all episodes with Reggie Watts and Kid Cudi as bandleader. So you can start binge watching the old episodes if you have a Netflix account. The new blocks of ten show up on Netflix exactly six months after the last one airs on IFC. So that means the first block with Al will probably show up around February 1 of next year.

If that sounds like too long to wait (and it is!), there's also the iTunes option. For $2.99 per episode, you can download the eps moments after they debut on TV. You can also subscribe to the entire season and the new episode will be sent to you as soon as it's ready for download. There should be a similar download option on Amazon, Google Play, and Xbox.

Another way to watch is on IFC.com - You will need a cable subscription login, so you need to find a friend with IFC first. But all of the episodes are on demand there once you log in.


If you're still too cheap for any of those options, well, you may be on your own! But until then, here is a FREE link to watch episode 501, the first episode with Al:

Hope this is helpful. Others should feel free to follow up if there are new ways to watch the show that I didn't mention, or if IFC decides to post any more full episodes for free.

Jon, do you know the Netflix UK pattern? Season 4 isn't even up yet. I really want to know.

I don't think it's free if I have to pay about £1000+ to get to Orlando just so I can watch this...

I've lucked out and found out that IFC is back in my current cable package! Also, as was mentioned above, I can use my cable login to watch and catch up on this season! More Al for me! :D

Great News! As Al tweeted today, the entire Season 5 (and therefore the entire series) of Comedy Bang Bang is now available on Netflix!
