How to watch the 75th Golden Globes this weekend
So this is it. We’ve finally come to the first award show of what is expected to be a busy season. The 75th Golden Globe Awards take place tomorrow, January 7th, live from The Beverly Hilton ballroom in Los Angeles.
The show is being hosted by none other than Seth Meyers (you may know him from Saturday Night Live, among other things), and will feature an extensive list of nominees.
So if you’re one of the people who have decided to cut the cable cord, you might be asking yourself, “can I watch the show?”
Well, yes. But it might not be as easy as it seems.
How to watch
Let’s start with the red carpet program, which starts at 6 p.m. Eastern (3 p.m. Pacific). Online streaming will be available at FB.com/GoldenGlobes. Additionally, the E! Network will be putting on their own red carpet coverage.
For the main show, the only real way to watch is via NBC. Do you have cable? If so, you’re good to go. If you don’t have cable, you can probably run out to the store and buy a cheap over-the-air antenna to watch NBC and other major networks free of charge (your TV may even come with one built in).
If that’s not a solution, then you’ll be happy to know that NBC will be streaming the Golden Globes online this year via their website and app. The downside is that you’ll need credentials as they just don’t broadcast willy nilly.
You have alternative options, though. Hulu live TV, Sling, YouTube TV, DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue all have NBC as part of their online streaming outlets, so you can catch the show there. Do be aware that NBC doesn’t stream in all regions via those third party services. Check directly with the companies above to find out if you’ll have access to watch the show.
If none of the above options are viable for you, well, we’re not sure. Perhaps join a local Golden Globes viewing party, or ask a friend with a subscription to any of the above services if they’d like to watch with you.
It’s a big night in Hollywood, and you probably don’t want to miss it!
