S.W.A.T. is gearing up for Season 3, which airs at 10/9 Central Wednesday, October 2 on CBS. Last year, the show aired on Thursday nights.
If you want to watch the popular police drama based on the Los Angeles, California S.W.A.T. team, but don’t have cable, there are still options to watch the show online.
“Inspired by the television series and the feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a former Marine and locally born and raised S.W.A.T. sergeant, tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles,” the show’s description says. “Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson strives to bridge the divide between his two worlds and acclimate to his new duties as the legal guardian of a teenager.”
If you don’t have cable or you can’t get to a TV to watch the premiere, you can watch the show live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
