What Channel Is CBS On Xfinity?

by Mark Chen | Updated 12/3/23

Xfinity puts CBS on a different channel depending on where you live.

While CBS as a broadcast network is usually one of the first channels on your guide, it’s going to be on completely different channels in Chicago compared to San Francisco.

We put together this guide so you can easily find out what channel CBS is on your Comcast TV.

One of the best ways to watch CBS is to sign up for Paramount+.

With Paramount+, you can watch CBS and CBS Sports live and all of the episodes of hit CBS shows like FBI and NCIS.

There’s even original content that’s only available on Paramount+ like Star Trek Picard and Yellowstone 1883.
