The 2018 SWAT season finale airs on May 17, 2018, from 10 – 11 p.m. ET/PT and the official synopsis of the finale episode, titled “Hoax”, states that, “A fake 911 call puts Hondo and the SWAT team on the hunt to stop bombing attacks on local communities. Also, Street’s relationship with his recently paroled mother, Karen (Sherilyn Fenn), jeopardizes his career, and Jessica is thrown a curveball by her colleague, Michael Plank (Peter Facinelli), president of the police commission.” For those who would like to watch the season finale but don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch CBS live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Hulu With Live TV: In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of live TV channels, including CBS (live in select markets). You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of CBS on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
Amazon Prime: If you have Amazon Prime or want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch all CBS content (both live and on-demand) via the CBS All-Access Amazon Channel, which comes with a 7-day free trial.
