Several news organisations are also reporting that you can watch the show live on the website.

“The show, which is airing live coast-to-coast on NBC, starting at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET, can be live-streamed on NBC.com by signing in with a participating TV provider account,” writes Variety. “TV providers include AT&T U-verse, Charter Spectrum, Cox, DirectTV, Dish Network, Optimum, and Verizon.”

The site is currently not working.

If you log into NBC.com with an Optimum account, for example, the site offers a message that “The Golden Globes are unavailable for streaming.”
