Looking to watch the 60th annual Grammy Awards this Sunday (Jan. 28) but don’t have a TV? The ceremony, which kicks off at 4:30 p.m. PT/7:30 p.m. ET from New York’s Madison Square Garden, will be available online. Read on to find out how to watch this three-and-a-half hour event jam-packed with music and hosted for the second year running by Emmy winner James Corden (“The Late, Late Show”).
CBS All Access is the cheapest way to see the Grammys online. The service is $5.99 per month, but offers a 7-day free trial membership. All of the leading streaming set-top boxes and smart TVs allow you to download this app and sign up for that free trial.
You may already be subscribing to a service that includes a live stream of the CBS affiliate in your town. DirecTVNow, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV all have deals with CBS stations in most of the nation’s markets. The basic packages for these that include local TV run about $40 per month.
While winners of the top 12 awards like Album of the Year will be announced during the CBS show, 70 of the 84 Grammy Awards will be doled out during a non-televised event in the afternoon. The Premiere Ceremony runs for three hours beginning at noon PT/3:00 p.m. ET. Check back on hour home page for the most up-to-date results. (See the full list of nominees for the 60th Grammy Awards.)
Who’ll win? Seven-time nominee Kendrick Lamar will take home an even half dozen Grammys. We’re predicting that Bruno Mars will go three for six. And while Jay-Z has eight nominations, we expect that he’ll lose all his races to Lamar.
