The 65th Grammy Awards takes place on Sunday night and you can watch them live. Here’s how to stream the awards show via iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.

The Grammy Awards are the highest honors members of the music industry can achieve. With many singers, songwriters, bands and other musical ensembles vying for an award, it’s a hotly contested annual event.

Also, like other award ceremonies, there are performances by musical acts also nominated for the awards, with Stevie Wonder and Lizzo ready to play for global audiences. For 2023, hosting duties are handled by Trevor Noah.

The show itself will begin at 8:00 pm Eastern, 5:00 pm Pacific Time and run for over three hours.

The red carpet of the Grammys

Before the awards ceremony takes place, much of the attention will be on the red carpet. Media crews from various outlets will be on hand to interview guests who appear on the carpet, as anticipation builds for the show itself.

The easiest red carpet coverage to view is the Associated Press flow on YouTube, which can be viewed for free via a browser or in the YouTube app.

How to stream the Grammy Awards

In the US, the Grammy Awards are broadcast on CBS, so if you don’t intend to watch a regular cable broadcast, you’ll need to sign into services that deliver a CBS stream to your devices. In situations like live streaming via the CBS websiteyou’ll need to be able to sign in with a TV provider that broadcasts CBS.

The list of services that offer CBS streams in packages includes, but is not limited to:

  • Cox
  • DirecTV
  • Dish
  • Hulu
  • Optimal
  • Spectrum
  • Verified
  • Xfinity
  • YoutubeTV

These services also tend to have their own apps for streaming content. It’s also worth checking to see if any existing subscription packages you already pay for have CBS coverage, to avoid having to sign up for a new one.

If you don’t have an existing compatible TV package to view a CBS stream, you can sign up for a free trial for some that do via iPhone and iPad apps, as well as Apple TV. This includes a trial week for FuboTV and a two-week trial for YoutubeTV.

You can also take a more direct approach by signing up for the Premium plan for Fundamental+. Premium includes access to a stream from your nearest local CBS station, allowing you to watch the show live, as well as on-demand after the broadcast.

Normally Paramount + Premium costs $9.99 a month, but you can also get a one-week trial of the service, if you haven’t already exhausted that approach.
