The 75th Golden Globe awards kick off on Sunday, Jan. 7, honoring the makers behind our favorite television shows and movies of the last year.
Late Night‘s Seth Meyers will host the event, joining a roster of presenters that has previously included Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Ricky Gervais.
Up for multiple awards are Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and, on the TV side, Feud: Bette and Joan, This Is Us and The Handmaid’s Tale.
Here’s a guide to how you can watch the 2018 Golden Globes, starting at 8 p.m. EST (5 p.m. PST) on NBC, including free streaming options.
NBC or NBC.com
To watch the 2018 Golden Globes live, tune in to NBC or use a cable log-in to sign in to NBC.com or the NBC app, where for the first time you can livestream the show held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.
Streaming services and devices
Cord-cutters who still want to watch the Golden Globes live, whether it’s for the acceptance speeches or gags, can catch the awards ceremony through several streaming services and devices, including Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, Century Link Stream and Fubo TV in markets where local channels like NBC are offered.
Customers who subscribe to Sling Blue can access NBC in Chicago, Boston, New York, San Francisco-Oakland, San Jose, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Dallas-Fort Worth, Washington D.C., Miami-Fort Lauderdale, San Diego and Hartford-New Haven, according to a spokesperson for the service.
Sling TV first-timers can try a 7-day free trial of the streaming service.
If streaming services or cable log-ins don’t work, an indoor antenna is a good alternative to watch the 2018 Golden Globes live. Most antennas should pick up NBC since it is a broadcast network.
Failing the three options above, the best course of action would be to live-stream the red carpet coverage, which will broadcast on Facebook from 6 to 8 p.m. EST. Or, you can forget about the awards entirely, and catch up on this year’s Golden Globes nominees instead.
