CBS to livestream the Grammy Awards tonight, both online and through apps
If you are a cord-cutter that would like to live-stream the Grammy’s this year, you won’t have to find any clever workarounds to do so. CBS will be offering the event on more digital platforms than ever before through CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service.
CBS All Access’s live stream of the GRAMMY Awards telecast, airing Monday, Feb. 15 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/check local listings for other time zones) on the CBS Television Network, will be accessible online at CBS.com, on iOS, Android and Windows 10 mobile phones and tablets, and, for the first time, on connected devices including Apple TV, Roku Players and Roku TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox 360 and Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
The CBS All Access live stream will be available in 130 markets across the U.S., including: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
Fans will also be able to stream the pre-telecast red carpet show through CBS All Access, staring at 7pm. In addition, subscribers will also be able to watch exclusive content on CBS All Access, including additional performances and interviews from CBS.com’s “Artists of Tomorrow” program.
In addition to CBS All Access’s live broadcast, CBS.com and the CBS App will also offer access to GRAMMY Live, streaming multiplatform coverage of the red carpet arrivals and all of the behind-the-scenes action leading up to the event.
“CBS All Access’s live stream of last year’s GRAMMY Awards broke new ground across digital platforms and we saw a phenomenal response from consumers as a result,” said Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Digital Media for CBS Interactive. “Now that the service is available on more devices than ever before, we’re excited to deliver music fans the full GRAMMYs experience wherever and however they want to watch through CBS All Access and the GRAMMY Live second-screen experience.”
In addition, YouTube personality Tyler Oakley returns this year to interview stars on the red carpet as part of GRAMMY Live and CBS.com’s GRAMMY coverage. The interviews will also be available on CBS Audience Network partner sites and CBS’ YouTube channel.
