Is 'Undercover Boss' on Netflix?

No, not in any way, shape, or form. While Netflix started off on a licensing spree getting as many shows as it could on its platform through a series of deals, it's seen tremendous growth in original content over the years. Owning content through and through is a way more effective and profitable business model for Netflix.

Getting your userbase to be loyal to the shows that you create is a surefire way to keep them enrolled in your services, and it also makes negotiating deals for said content that much easier. Netflix doesn't have to worry when the usage for its own content will ever expire because they funded and produced all of that content outright.

And since more and more TV networks are creating their own streaming services, what we're seeing is a mass migration of their content leaving Netflix and heading on over to their own sites/apps. Take The Office, for example. It was one of the streamer's more popular and rewatched shows, but since NBC owns the series, it ultimately was ported over to Peacock once its license expired on The 'Flix.

So where can I stream 'Undercover Boss'?

Since the show airs on CBS, it's only natural that it's going to appear on streaming platforms owned by CBS Viacom, which includes Paramount Plus.

However, that's not the only streamer that features episodes of the popular reality TV show. If you've got yourself a Hulu account, you'll be able to check it out there as well. It's on Peacock, too. But sorry, no Netflix.

The good news is that if you don't have Paramount Plus or Hulu, you can get a Peacock account for free simply by signing up. Sure, there are ads, but there are commercials on network and cable TV too.
