How to watch the 2019 Emmy Awards

Once again it’s time for television greats to vie for greatness in the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ coveted Emmy Awards. 2019 will mark the ceremony’s 71st year, which began way back in the monochrome year of 1949. This year, the recently concluded pop culture phenomenon Game of Thrones leads the pack with 14 nominations, including nine for acting and three for directing. In fact, Game of Thrones also broke the record for most nominations received by a single show with 32 in total, breaking the previous record of 26 nominations held by NYPD Blue.

Of course, the competition will be fierce, with appointment television dramas like This is Us heading off against BBC darling Killing Eve and legendary comedies like Veep heading off against the scruffy streaming underdog The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Expect more than a few surprises, comeback stories, or outright upsets when the Emmys air this Sunday.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the 2019 Emmy Awards.

How to watch 2019 Emmy awards

Fox is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming. 

1) Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, both of which cost $25 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

3) PlayStation Vue

If you have a PS4 and are into the idea of having your gaming and streaming needs met in the same place, PlayStation Vue is made for you. Jumping from your favorite game to your favorite show is seamless, and controlling it is as intuitive as playing an actual game. Your PS4 controller is your remote, after all. Still, you don’t need a PS4 to enjoy this service. You can also use a Roku, Amazon Fire devices, and even Kodi. Plus, you’ll get awesome channels like AMC, BBC America, and Bravo in PlayStation Vue’s entry-level package. One subscription works with up to five devices, all with unlimited cloud DVR storage, which makes it one of the most binge-friendly solutions. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR.
