  • The Golden Globes will air tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
  • The annual awards show honors the best movies and TV series of the year.
  • If you don’t have cable, you can watch the show through services like Sling, Fubo TV, and Hulu Live TV.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Despite a roughly two-month delay due to the pandemic, the Golden Globe Awards are set to air live tonight on NBC. Although the past year has seen a notable drop in theater attendance nationwide, that hasn’t stopped the entertainment industry from releasing several new movies and shows that are worthy of recognition.

Comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the ceremony from two different locations, marking the first bicoastal event in the show’s history. Fey will host the ceremony from New York City’s Rainbow Room while Poehler will host the show from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Nominees will be scattered throughout the world and broadcast from different areas.

Here’s how you can watch and stream the ceremony live without a cable plan.

How to watch the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes will air tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Before the main event, you can watch the pre-show from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET on goldenglobes.com and @goldenglobes on Twitter. A pre-show will also air on NBC at 7 p.m. ET.

You can catch the ceremony on NBC through cable or over-the-air TV. The show will also be broadcast on NBC.com and the NBC app if you have an authenticated pay-TV account. If you want to watch the Golden Globes on NBC without cable, there are several streaming options you can use as well.

Live streaming services with NBC

One of the cheapest live TV streaming options to watch the Golden Globes on is Sling TV. The Sling Blue plan costs $35 a month and offers 44 channels, including your local NBC station. New members can receive a three-day trial. If you don’t want a trial, you can opt for $10 off your first month instead.

NBC is only available in select markets through Sling, so you’ll need to confirm your city is supported before signing up

TV (small)

Locast is another cheap streaming option with access to the Golden Globes. Locast is a non-profit streaming service with local channels, meaning you can watch networks like NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox without having to pay a dime. 

With that said, the free option is periodically interrupted by donation requests. You’ll have to pay $5 a month to support the service if you want to avoid pesky interruptions during the Golden Globes and other programs. On the downside, Locast is only available in select markets and it only offers local stations. If you want more channels, you’ll need a service like Sling or Hulu + Live TV.

Streaming Subscription (small)

Other streaming services, like Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV, all cost $65 a month and also include NBC in select markets. If you’re looking for the most channels, Fubo TV’s Family plan is the best option with over 122. Meanwhile, Hulu’s service has around 65 channels but it also includes access to all of Hulu’s on-demand shows and movies. YouTube TV is somewhere in the middle, with around 85 channels.

All three services offer a free one-week trial for new members.

AT&T TV will also air the Golden Globes on its local NBC channel. The cheapest non-contract plan costs $70 per month. You can sign up for a two-year contract and pay $60 per month for your first year, but you’ll be locked into increased payments in your second year.

Unlike most of the other services in this article, AT&T TV does not include a free trial.
