We're only a couple of days away from the 2017 Grammy Awards. The best and brightest in music will come together for an evening of song, dance, and celebration. As with any awards show, the 2017 Grammys will probably also bring all kinds of bold fashion choices, a few acceptance speech gaffes, and maybe even a fall or two on the main stage. All things considered, the ceremony should be a fun watch for any who enjoy the music scene. If you don't have access to a TV, however, you'll have to get a bit creative with how you catch the Grammys.
CBS will host the Grammys with James Corden of The Late Late Show as master of ceremonies, and the network has chosen to limit streaming video options to CBS All Access. The service costs $5.99 per month and offers subscribers the option of watching episodes from a library of past CBS series as well as access to certain live events like the Grammys. Luckily for any who only want to watch the Grammys and aren't looking to shell out six bucks for a few hours of entertainment, CBS All Access offers a one-week free trial that should let anybody stream the ceremony without paying. The downside of the free trial is that a credit card is required to sign up.
The good news is that CBS All Access video can be streamed on a variety of platforms. You can catch the Grammys with All Access on desktop, the CBS App, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Playstation 4, Windows 10, and Chromecast. If you have a laptop, tablet, phone, and credit card, you shouldn't have trouble finding a way to watch the Grammys.
If you're not willing to sign up for CBS All Access even with the free trial, you're out of luck to stream the entire extravaganza. You can, however, catch some Grammys coverage without CBS All Access. The official website for the Grammys will stream behind-the-scenes action live throughout the evening. The livestream won't be the same as watching the actual event live on TV or CBS All Access, but it will give a look at the biggest names in music as they arrive at the Grammys. Red carpet interviews will be featured as well, and it won't cost anything to watch.
The Grammys kick off on Sunday, February 12 at 8 p.m. ET. The ceremony does air live in the U.S., however, so be sure to check your local listings if you don't live in the Eastern Timezone. James Corden will host, and we can expect to see performances from Adele, Katy Perry, Beyonce (with babies on board), and Lady Gaga (fresh off her Super Bowl LI halftime show) and Metallica together in a surprising duet.
