Hosted by multiple Emmy award nominee Kenan Thompson, this event will be broadcast on NBC tonight at 7 PM CST, with red carpet coverage by Laverne Cox starting on E! at 5 PM.

So how do you plan to watch tonight’s star-studded award show? If you’re watching it through your cable TV plan, we’re here to tell you there’s a better way!

Stream the Emmys

Watch the Emmys with an OTA Antenna

Because these awards will be broadcast on local NBC stations, you can tune in with a digital antenna if you don’t have a cable or streaming TV service. What we love about using an antenna is that people make a one-time payment and get access to their local channels, rather than paying a monthly subscription. Take a look at some antenna recommendations from our customers and employees.

Watch the Emmys with a VPN

Are you travelling somewhere that doesn’t have access to the same programming as back home? No problem! You can use a VPN to tune in to the show as if you were watching in your hometown, even if you’re somewhere NBC isn’t available. ExpressVPN and NordVPN are just two of many great options to do this.

How to Stream the Emmys Red Carpet

If you tune in earlier, you can watch the red carpet coverage by Laverne Cox hosted on E! This will start at 5 PM CST, can online content for this will likely be available on E!’s YouTube channel, Twitter account, or website.

You can also watch People and Entertainment Weekly’s livestream of the red carpet.

Hopefully this post has helped you find a way to watch the 2022 Emmys.
