Emmy Awards 2016: How to Watch

You're out of luck, cord-cutters

Liz Raftery

TV's biggest night, aka the Primetime Emmy Awards, is upon us Sunday at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. The star-studded event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will feature appearances by television royalty, including Claire Danes, Bryan Cranston, Terrence Howard, Rami Malek, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Check out all the nominees here.

So, how can you watch the ceremony?

The easiest way is on ABC, which will broadcast the Emmys live on both coasts beginning at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT, preceded by a red carpet special beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET. Other networks, including E!, will also carry red carpet coverage and pre-coverage beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET.

You can also watch red carpet coverage live via CBSN here.

Pay TV subscribers can also stream the awards on ABC.com and also through the ABC app. (Yep, that means only people with a cable subscription will be able to stream the awards online.)

The awards will also be available on-demand on Monday.

Who are you rooting for?

Jimmy Kimmel
