If you’re one of the many people out there who has foregone a cable subscription or qualifies as live-streaming “cord cutter,” you’re likely looking for the right way to tune into TV’s biggest event, the 69th Prime-Time Emmy Awards.
The awards show kicks off at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific with host Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show.” It’s available through the network’s streaming service, CBS All Access.
You can get CBS All Access on a number of devices, including Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10 and Google Chromecast. The service normally costs $6 per month, but it’s free for new members, so you can check out the award show for nothing if you’re just starting out with CBS All Access.
It’s a notable year for the Emmys, whose nominations are led by HBO’s sci-fi drama “Westworld” and “Saturday Night Live” from NBC. Both shows nabbed 22 nominations each. Streaming services are also making a big push in this year’s Emmys. Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” is up for Oustanding Drama Series, as is Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” “House of Cards” and “The Crown.” “Westworld,” AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and “This is Us” on NBC round out the Outstanding Drama nominees.
