We get asked fairly regularly which sites will allow you to watch Survivor online. Generally, though, the question is about a specific season: “Where can I find Pearl Islands?”, “Where can I find Heroes vs. Villains?”, etc.
Obviously, DVDs are for chumps. The best way to binge Survivor seasons is by first consulting our spoiler-free ranking of Survivor seasons and picking the one you’d like to watch, then find somewhere that is streaming them. But while there are several sources available that will allow you to watch Survivor online, the seasons that they offer vary. Hopefully this page will help you locate the specific season you’re looking for. We’ll try to keep it current, so if you notice that any of the information below has changed, please let us know.
Disclosure: We get three whole dollars if you sign up for Amazon Prime. So if you were going to sign up for it anyway, it would be nice if you did it through our link. We don’t get any money for the other sites.
With a one-year paid subscription (or with a 30-Day Free Trial), Amazon Prime will allow you to watch the following seasons of Survivor:
Season 1: Borneo
Season 3: Africa
Seasons 12 through 28: Panama through Cagayan
Cost: Amazon Prime is $99 for one full year, which works out to $8.25 a month.
Similar to Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus offers an odd assortment of seasons. Currently, they have the following seasons available:
Season 1: Borneo
Seasons 12 through 27: Panama through Blood vs. Water
Cost: Hulu Plus is $7.99 per month, or $95.88 for one year. And you’ll still have to watch commercials.
If you want to watch Survivor online and not have to worry about which seasons will be available, this is probably the place to do it (assuming you’re cool with enduring commercials even though you’re paying to watch). Since this is the official CBS streaming site, they have every single season of the show available. They even have some limited bonus footage.
Cost: $5.99 per month, but you’ll still have to watch commercials. They generally offer a 1-week free trial.
Amazon also sells some of the seasons they don’t offer through Amazon Prime. You can buy these Survivor seasons:
Cost: Seasons range in cost from $10 to $25 per season. Episodes range from $1-2 each.
You can currently find these Survivor seasons on iTunes:
Seasons 12 through 32: Panama through Kaoh Rong
Cost: Seasons range in cost from $10 to $25 per season. Individual episodes cost $2-$3.
Hopefully this list helps you find what you were looking for. And yes, we realize there are other places to watch Survivor online that involve pirating the show. But since we are Survivor fans, we’d generally prefer the show to stay profitable so it will remain on the air.
