How to Watch the 2018 Emmy Awards
Television’s golden-statue extravaganza is finally here. Yes, that’s correct; the 2018 Emmy Awards are upon us. There’s a lot at stake in this year. Game of Thrones garnered an impressive 22 nominations, trailed by Westworld with 21. Nominees also include surprise hits like Killing Eve. And for the first time ever, streaming titan Netflix surpassed HBO in nominations, racking up 112 compared to the cable network’s 108.
The 70th Emmy Awards ceremony will air on Monday, September 17, at 5pm Pacific (8pm Eastern). The awards show, held in the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, will air on NBC .
You can, of course, catch the festivities on good old-fashioned television. But it’s 2018, and there are about as many ways to stream the Emmys as there are ways to see your favorite shows. Read on to find out which one is right for you.
How to Watch
You can watch the ceremony live on NBC.com, so long as you sign in with your TV provider. You can also access a livestream from the NBC app. It’s available on iOS and Android, as well as Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Xbox, and Samsung TV.
You can also watch NBC via other streaming services you might already use. NBC can be streamed live with Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV.
Can’t watch the Emmys tonight? NBC will have the full show available to stream on demand as early as tomorrow.
What About the Other Events?
Red carpet coverage rolls out at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern). Tune in to E! on TV or on its live stream on Twitter from @enews. People Magazine will also provide a live stream via PeopleTV, as well as a Twitter simulcast from @People .
Not all of the achievements that make great TV will be honored during today’s ceremony. If you’re keen on creative and technical categories like Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance and Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, you can catch up on the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. The Creative Arts Emmys were held over two nights, on Saturday, September 8, and Sunday, September 9. An edited version of the ceremony aired on FXX last Saturday evening, but you can still watch it from the FXNow app.
