golden globes online

Awards season is here! The 2024 Golden Globe Awards ceremony will begin at 8 PM EST (5 PM PT / 1 AM GMT) on January 7.

Film buffs can expect to see a huge number of familiar faces attending live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. Read on to find out how to watch the 81st Golden Globe Awards for free, from abroad (outside the US).

The Golden Globes celebrate domestic and international achievements in filmmaking but they’re only broadcast in a handful of countries. It is probable that some unauthorized streams will be available online, however, we recommend against using these.

Unauthorized streams suffer from low-quality video and can be taken offline at a moment’s notice for violating copyright. In addition, there are plenty of ways to watch the Golden Globes online for free – so you don’t need to resort to a shady, unlicensed stream. Instead, you can use a VPN to watch an official broadcast online from anywhere.

The 81st Golden Globe Awards ceremony will only be shown on geo-restricted streaming services. If you’re on vacation and looking to watch on your usual streaming services, you’ll have to use a VPN.

How to watch the 81st Golden Globe Awards abroad with a VPN

Region-locked services tend to find the user’s location by examining their IP address. When you connect to a VPN, though, your IP address is hidden and replaced by that of the server you’re using. In simple terms, this makes it appear as though you’re in another country, and allows you to use geo-restricted services even while traveling abroad.

Here’s how to watch The Golden Globe Awards online from anywhere:

  1. First, sign up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We particularly recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two fantastic alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app. Most providers offer a variety of apps for different operating systems, so you can watch on whichever device you prefer.
  3. Decide which service you’d like to unblock.
  4. Connect to a VPN server in the required location. You’d use an American server to unblock CBS, for instance, or an Australian server to access Stan abroad.
  5. Create an account if one is needed. Note that this may require you to have a payment method linked to an address in a specific country.
  6. Finally, try watching a video on your chosen service. In most cases, it should begin immediately. If it doesn’t, clear your browser’s cache and cookies, then reload the page.

The 2024 Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast live. For this reason, we strongly recommend testing your VPN (using the steps above) well before it’s due to air. This approach ensures that you won’t have to miss any of the winner announcements due to unforeseen technical troubles.

How to live stream the Golden Globe Awards for free on US TV

How to live stream the Golden Globe Awards for free on US TV

The 81st Golden Globe Awards will air live on CBS. If you already receive this channel as part of your cable TV package, you can watch the event on your TV or online by signing into the CBS website at no added cost. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to stream the Golden Globes for free without cable, too.

Firstly, CBS will be showing the Golden Globes on Paramount+ for all subscribers. This means you can watch the Golden Globes for $5.99 per month. This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to watch the Golden Globes online.

Alternatively, you can watch CBS on fuboTV, Sling TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, or YouTube TV account. Each of these services comes with a free trial period (usually one week long). This means that you can sign up, watch the Golden Globes, and cancel before the trial ends to avoid being charged.

The streaming services above are only available in the US, and they require a US payment method, so it may be difficult to sign up from abroad. However, if you usually live in the US and are traveling abroad, you can connect to a US VPN server to sign up and watch. NordVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee meaning you can stream the event risk-free.

Can I watch the Golden Globes abroad?

The 2024 Golden Globes will air live in a few English-speaking countries besides the US. Take a look below to find out which networks are showing the event where you live:


How to live stream the Golden Globe Awards for free on Canadian TV

Rogers’ CityTV has exclusive broadcasting rights to this event in Canada and will be showing the awards on January 7 at 8 PM EST. If you have a cable TV subscription, you can stream the entire Golden Globes ceremony for free on the City TV website.

Unfortunately, CityTV doesn’t allow you to sign in with any over-the-top streaming services. This means that if you don’t have cable, you’ll have to wait until the event is made available on-demand (usually a few hours after the broadcast ends).

CityTV is region-locked, so you’ll have to either be in Canada or connected to one of your VPN’s Canadian servers if you want to watch the Golden Globes from abroad.


How to live stream the Golden Globe Awards for free on Australian TV

Australian cinema buffs can watch the Golden Globes Awards ceremony live on Stan from 1 PM AEST, January 8. The ceremony will be available on Stan at no extra cost and a subscription costs just AUS$10 per month.

Stan comes with a 30-day free trial, so as long as you remember to cancel before the trial ends, you can effectively stream the Golden Globe Awards for free.

Stan is region-locked and only available in Australia. However, Australians who are currently traveling can access their account as normal by connecting to an Australian VPN server first.
