The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place this Sunday and there are a couple of ways to watch the big show from home.
Fox’s coverage of the Emmys begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with a 90-minute pre-show hosted by Jenny McCarthy, Kelly Osbourne and Shannon Sharpe of Fox Sports. The main show begins at 8 p.m. ET and will air live on both coasts.
If you don’t have cable, you can still catch the show by signing up for Hulu with Live TV, fuboTV, or Sling TV. All three services include Fox and let you stream all their live TV channels from your computer, tablet or phone, or by casting it onto a physical television or screen.
Hulu’s deal gets you access to all their originals (like The Handmaid’s Tale, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Stephen King’s Castle Rock) plus all the main live sports and entertainment channels for less than $45/month (think Bravo, E! ESPN, FX and USA). Grab the 7-day free trial they’re offering to lock in a viewing date with the Emmys before Sunday. You can cancel anytime.
Sling TV, meantime, is more of an a la carte package, letting you mix and match channels to create your own TV menu. Pricing starts at just $15/month, which makes Sling TV one of the cheapest deals out there. Again, there’s no contract required, though Sling is currently offering a free Roku Express when you subscribe and prepay for two months of service.
fuboTV, which prides itself on its sports and entertainment offerings, is also offering a 7-day free trial to check out the service. Sign-up now and get instant access to the Emmys tonight, along with a ton of other channels. The company will email you before your 7-day trial is up as a friendly reminder to cancel, or, presumably, to offer a ton of incentives to keep the subscription going.
This year’s Primetime Emmy nominees are led by HBO’s Game of Thrones, which earned a record-breaking 32 nominations for its final season.
