New year, new you, new Hollywood awards season. On the first Sunday of the year, we’re getting the first big awards show of the season with the Golden Globes. And it’s sure to be a wild one with a pile of movies and TV shows looking to play spoiler against the favorites.
If you’re someone who isn’t going to be able to plop down in front of a TV that’s hooked up to cable or an antenna to watch the Golden Globes ceremony when it airs on NBC at 5 p.m. PT, you’re not outta luck, because the Golden Globes ceremony will once again be available for streaming.
It won’t be free, however. In order to stream the Golden Globes on NBC, you’ll need to use the NBC app or go online to NBC.com in your web browser on a computer, where you can watch NBC’s live feed from whatever is your local affiliate station. And in order to access that live feed, you will need a login with a valid cable or satellite provider.
Alternatively, you can stream NBC via a streaming TV service that carries the network — such as Sling — and watch online that way. Many of those services have a free trial you can sign up for if you’ve never used them before, so if you’re looking for a free option that doesn’t involve a bootleg stream, that’s about it.
Meanwhile, the situation with the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet is a little bit more complicated with NBC carrying an NFL playoff game immediately before the ceremony, but you can catch all the details you need right here in our post on that subject.
The 2019 Golden Globes will be hosted, as you may know, by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh — a duo that is expected to absolutely own the evening. Fingers crossed.
