The show, now into its eleventh season, is already renewed for the next few years and still remains as CBS’s biggest sitcom outliving many of its other hits and frequently is CBS’s biggest show in terms of audience.

As a result of the above, many Netflixers frequently ask us whether or not The Big Bang Theory is on Netflix, let’s find out.

Is Season 1 to 11 on Netflix US?

Let’s start off with the United States as that’s probably where most of you will be from if you’re viewing this article. As you will now know, The Big Bang Theory is currently not streaming on Netflix and the reason as to why is pretty simple. Netflix can’t get a hold of the streaming rights likely because of how valuable they are and CBS has chosen instead to leave the show exclusive to its own streaming platform, CBS All Access.

We’ve seen this with a couple of shows where CBS deems it necessary to hold a separate subscription to their service. While the show is as popular as it is, this arrangement won’t be changing anytime soon.

Even Hulu, another main partner for CBS doesn’t carry the show.

On the bright side, Netflix’s other business, Netflix DVD, does currently hold seasons 1 to 10 on DVD box set available to rent.
