The 69th annual Emmy Awards Show will be airing live at 10am AEST on Foxtel’s Fox8 — but if you don’t have a traditional TV cable package, there’s no need to fret.

There are a couple of different ways you can stream the award show online.

Live TV streaming services such as YouTube TV offer free trial subscriptions. While it should have a CBS channel, be sure to check before signing up, as this can vary by location. Again, don’t forget to cancel your subscription if you’re not invested in paying for it monthly.

The Emmy’s “Backstage LIVE!” show will also be live streaming on the Emmy’s website, as well as Facebook Live, for viewers who are looking for an all-access look at the awards ceremony. “Backstage LIVE!” airs at 8 p.m. EST, just as the award show begins.

You can also look to different social media platforms for behind-the-scenes coverage. The Television Academy will be sharing video portraits of Emmy Winners on their Instagram Story Sunday, and will be sharing photos and videos in their Snapchat stories “Emmys Red Carpet,” and “Emmys Stories,” which will offer a look at pre-show and backstage moments.

But unfortunately, there is no easy and free way to stream the show itself, outside of a free trial situation. If you don’t want to go through that hassle, we suggest that you use a digital antenna and a TV, or find a friend’s house to watch it at.
