watch the GRAMMY Awards

The 66th Annual Grammy Awards will be taking place in the Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 4 at 8 PM EST (5 PM PST / 1 AM GMT). Only a few broadcasters across the globe will be showing the awards, so if you’re traveling abroad, you might have trouble watching the Grammys live. For many viewers, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) can help by spoofing your location and allowing you to watch services from back home.

In this post, we’ll reveal which streams are accessible depending on where you’re located. We’ll also explain how to change your IP address and evade geolocation restrictions. However, we’ll only be discussing official broadcasters. Note that while there will be unlicensed streams available, these are prone to poor quality and may be taken down partway through the show.

Many of the platforms airing this event are region-locked and won’t work from abroad. To connect to your usual services while on vacation, you’ll need a VPN.

How to watch the Grammy Awards 2024 live online with a VPN

If you want to access a geo-restricted streaming platform from abroad, you need to get a new IP address. A VPN will route your internet traffic through an intermediary server in a country of your choice, enabling you to spoof your location. Don’t worry; even if you’ve never used one before, they’re very easy to navigate.

Here’s how to watch the Grammy Awards 2024 live online from anywhere:

  1. Sign up to a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN, but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are solid alternatives for live streaming.
  2. Download and install the appropriate VPN for your device. All of the above VPNs allow multiple simultaneous connections.
  3. Connect to a VPN server in the same region as the streaming source, for example, a US server for Paramount+.
  4. Navigate to the live stream of the awards show. You should now find that you can watch without further restriction.
  5. Clear your browser’s cookies if you’re still having trouble. Otherwise, try connecting to another server to change your IP address.

It’s a good idea to test out the connection before the event starts so you have a chance to iron out any issues. You can always contact your VPN’s customer support if you need any further assistance.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for streaming the Grammy Awards with no restrictions.

There are no hidden termsjust contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to live stream the Grammy Awards on US TV

How to live stream the Grammy Awards on US TV

CBS has the rights to broadcast the Grammy Awards 2024 in the US. CBS is included in basic cable packages, so anyone with one of those will be able to watch on TV. However, access to the live-streaming platform offered by CBS, called  Paramount+, is not included in a cable package and you’ll need to pay for a subscription. The cost is $11.99 USD per month for an ad-free experience or $5.99 per month if you’re willing to put up with some commercials.

Now, both of these plans do come with a one-week free trial, so it’s possible to just sign up, watch the Grammy Awards, and cancel your subscription before the payment period kicks in. You are required to submit payment information to access the free trial, and the billing address must be a US or Canadian one, meaning that the option to watch for free is only really available to US or Canadian viewers or those with access to a US or Canadian credit card.

If you have a Paramount+ Account (or valid cable TV provider details to log in to CBS Live TV Stream), but you’re traveling abroad, you can connect to a US VPN server and log in as normal. Similarly, if you’re abroad and want to sign up using a US credit card, a US IP address is needed.

Don’t have a VPN? NordVPN is ideal for streaming as it’s extremely fast and reliable. It even offers a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can use it to watch the Grammy Awards and get your money back afterward.

Where else can I watch the Grammy Awards online?

Here are the major broadcasters airing the show in other parts of the globe:


How to live stream the Grammy Awards on Canadian TV

In Canada, Citytv will broadcast the awards show live. To watch live streams online, you’ll need to sign in with details from a Canadian cable provider.

As an alternative, Paramount+ is also available in Canada. You can get a one-week free trial, but you need to provide credit card information. If you’re outside Canada but have a credit card with a Canadian billing address, you can still sign up for the free trial by connecting to one of your VPN’s Canadian servers and visiting the Canadian Paramount+ site.


How to live stream the Grammy Awards on Australia TV

In Australia, Channel 7 will air the Grammys which means you’ll be able to watch online via 7plus. Best of all, this is available for free although you do need to sign up for an account to stream its content.

Paramount+ is also available in Australia and it has been confirmed that it will be showing the Grammys live from 11 AM AEST (Monday, February 5). This costs $9.99 AUD a month and comes with a seven day free trial. If you’re traveling abroad, you’ll need to connect to a VPN server in Australia to access Paramount+ as normal.


How to live stream the Grammy Awards on UK TV

If you live in the UK, you’re pretty much out of luck for local live streams as no British broadcasters have the rights to show the Grammy Awards show live on TV or online. Your best bet will be to connect to a server in the US and watch the Grammy awards on Paramount+.

However, it should be noted that the live stream of the Grammy Awards has been available on the Grammy’s website for the last two years. While there’s no news as yet if that will be the case this year, it’s worth knowing as it would be a free and convenient option.
