How to Stream the Emmys Tonight

And all the other ways to watch TV’s biggest awards show.


The Emmys are happening in L.A. tonight and there are a couple of ways to tune in if you don’t have a good, old-fashioned boob tube.

It’s probably not a show you’re going to want to miss either, with Stranger Things, Westworld and The Handmaid’s Tale all vying to be named the best in TV.

This will also be Stephen Colbert’s first time hosting the awards show. Given Colbert’s relentless take-down of the Trump administration on his own show, there’s a solid chance that we’ll get some much-needed comedic catharsis over the three-hour special. Plus, this show is live, so anything can happen. Remember the Oscars?

Watching the Emmys on TV — or a browser

The Emmys are airing on CBS, with the red carpet starting at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time. The awards show itself kicks of at 8 p.m. Check your local TV listings to find your CBS channel
