As ever, the reality show has teams competing in a race around the world for a million-dollar grand prize.

This year's teams include a father-daughter duo from Detroit, two teams of YouTube influencers, a pair of police officers with a penchant for singing, as well as identical twin radio presenters from New Jersey.

How to watch The Amazing Race season 33 online from outside your country

If you're abroad today but still want to get your Amazing Race fix just as you would if you were at home, you'll need a VPN to do so. This is because of the pesky digital phenomenon known as geo-blocking, which results in most The Amazing Race live streams, rather ironically, being restricted to specific parts of the world.

However, a Virtual Private Network offers a legal solution to this common internet woe and is remarkably easy to set up and operate. Here's how it works and where to get started.

Use a VPN to watch The Amazing Race online from anywhere

How to watch The Amazing Race online: stream TAR season 33 online in the US

CBS website (opens in new tab)

If you have cable, The Amazing Race will be shown every Wednesday on CBS, kicking off with a two-hour special at 8pm ET/PT on January 5.

Tune in on linear TV or watch on-demand on the CBS website (opens in new tab). You'll need to sign in with your cable provider details.

Alternatively, if you don't have the channel on linear TV, it's available to stream on Paramount Plus. Currently you can benefit from a 30-day FREE trial of Paramount Plus (opens in new tab) when using the discount code PEAKSALE. Thereafter, the Paramount Plus cost starts from $4.99 a month (opens in new tab) with Limited Ads, or $9.99 a month for No Ads.

Or, you can opt for a much more fully featured over-the-top streaming service. Some of them struggle with national networks like CBS, so our recommendation in this case would be FuboTV (opens in new tab), which is a complete cable replacement starting from $64.99 a month. 

There's a FREE 7-day trial deal (opens in new tab) on offer to try it, and cancelling is easy if you decide it's not for you - essentially meaning it's possible to watch The Amazing Race online for free, at least the first episode anyway.

Away from the US but want to watch the same streaming coverage you do when at home? You got it - just grab a great VPN deal (opens in new tab) and follow our instructions above to get started.
