How to watch tonight’s 60th annual Grammys live on Apple TV

The 60th annual Grammy Awards are set for tonight in New York City, live from Madison Square Garden, at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT. For the 45th straight year, CBS will be broadcasting the awards and its available streaming on your Apple TV through various means.

CBS app coverage

As CBS has the exclusive rights to The Grammys, the best way to stream the show is with the CBS All Access app, available through the Apple TV AppStore. It is a paid service, starting at $5.99 a month, but offers a free one-week trial.

CBS web coverage

Another option is to watch it via the CBS website using a CBS All Access account and stream it to your Apple TV box and TV through AirPlay.

The 60th annual Grammy Awards are set for tonight in New York City with various ways to watch it through your Apple TV, including CBS All Access.

Stream through live services

If your local station is on one of the five streaming services available on Apple TV – Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, Fubo TV, or Sling TV – then you’re all good to watch the Grammy’s.

To see if you’re local CBS affiliate is on one of these services (other than Sling TV as they are available only in markets where the affiliate is owned by CBS Television like the ones in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.), go to Streambuzz.net and check out their affiliate chart. Chances are very good one of these services streams live your local CBS station.

Live red carpet stream

An hour before the awards begin, you can view the red carpet arrivals online for free through the Grammy Facebook page and then stream it to your Apple TV box and TV through AirPlay.

An additional red carpet stream will be available on the E! Network, which is also available on the five streaming services available on Apple TV, or through the E! Now app, available through the Apple TV AppStore. You’ll also need a personal TV provider’s login through a cable, satellite, or telco provider of TV to view this live feed through the app.

The show should (repeat “should”) be over by 11 p.m. ET, that is if Kanya West decides he doesn’t want to use tonight’s show as a forum to announce his run for U.S. president.
