Emmy Awards 2017 Channels/Broadcasters List

CBS is the official broadcaster of the Emmy Awards 2017. This means, if you are located in the US and have a cable TV subscription, all you have to do is switch the channel to CBS at 8 pm to watch the awards. For users that do not have a cable subscription, you can opt for using CBS All Access. This streaming platform gives users within the US complete access to CBS’s inventory of content.

In addition to a live streaming version of your local CBS channel, you will have watchable content available in the form of movies and TV shows. However, it is imperative that you sign up for an account at CBS, if you want to watch the event. The monthly packages start at a low cost of $6 per month, or $10 for an ad-free version. In Canada, CTV will be responsible for airing the Emmys and in Australia, Fox 8 has the rights to air the event.

 

How to Watch Emmy Awards 2017 Using VPN

If you are located in countries outside the US, you can check your local listings to see if the Emmys will broadcast live. If you do not have a cable TV, but still want to watch the event, we have a solution for that too. You can use a VPN to trick CBS All Access into thinking you are located in the US and subsequently sign up for an account to watch the Emmys 2017.

Since CBS is geo-restricted to users outside USA, a VPN can help mask your IP address and location, making it easier to access the website. You can use the same process for unblocking CTV outside Canada but bear in mind that you need a subscription for a VPN. Below is a list of the best VPN services you can use to watch the Emmy Awards 2017, regardless of where you reside in the world!
