Everyone’s favorite improviser, MacGyver, is back for a second season of the rebooted show this Fall, and even if you don’t have cable, it’s easy to watch a live stream of any episode online–be it on-demand or live.
Whether you want to watch any of the episodes from last season, catch up on already-aired episodes from Season 2 or watch new episodes live as they air, you can do any of that via CBS All Access, a cable-free, monthly subscription service that provides live access to CBS broadcasts and its entire library of shows.
It comes with a free trial, so you can try it out at no risk. You can sign up right here, or you can read or for a more thorough breakdown of everything you need to know:
