More and more streaming options are becoming available for Canadians who’ve cut the cord on costly cable subscriptions. And for some, you don’t have to pay a dime, which is essential, because cutting cable and replacing it with countless paid streaming services can add up fast.
One of the more underrated free streaming services available in Canada comes from Yes TV, a relatively small television station that’s available in roughly 7 million homes through a cable package. Or you can simply watch Yes TV’s live broadcast online, entirely for free.
Yes TV’s online broadcasts are entirely ad-supported, just like a conventional TV station. And while this isn’t as convenient as on-demand content from streaming services like Netflix, it gives you the freedom of accessing the stream without paying a subscription of any kind.
The lineup of shows broadcast online through Yes TV include sitcoms like Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Ties, and The King of Queens, game shows like Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, and variety shows like Harry, Judge Judy, and Hot Bench. The full broadcast schedule can be browsed online here.
If there’s one big drawback to watching Yes TV online it’s the fact there’s no Yes TV app available for iOS, Android, Roku, or Apple TV. But if you want to watch the stream on your big screen TV, this can be easily rectified with Chromecast and by using the Chrome web browser’s built-in “Cast” feature, which will wirelessly beam your browser tab to your TV.
