How to Watch The Golden Globes From Amywhere
It’s almost time for the 77th Golden Globes awards ceremony, and we can safely say the world is buzzing about it.
For the fifth time, British comedian Ricky Gervais will be hosting the show, so it’s bound to be a memorable evening. Nominations for this year’s Golden Globes were announced on Monday, 9 December 2019 (5am PT / 8am ET), and there are some really good choices in the running this year.
If you happen to be traveling or living abroad during this year’s Golden Globes, you most likely won’t have access to the American channels that offer viewing. But fret not!
You can still catch all the action on the red carpet and during the award show this year from abroad, but you’ll need a good VPN.
We recommend ExpressVPN as the most reliable VPN available.
- Location: The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California
- Date: 6th January 2020
- Start time: (6pm MT) (1am GMT) (8pm EST) (5pm PST)
Streaming The Golden Globes Live Stream
The 77th Golden Globes Awards ceremony will be shown live on-air on NBC, from coast to coast in the United States. Alternatively, if you have an internet connection, you can watch the Golden Globes live stream from any device with one of the following streaming services:
- NBC Live
- Hulu (Live TV plan)
- DirecTV Now
- PlayStation Vue
- Sling TV
- Fubo TV
- YouTube TV
Nothing is confirmed yet, but there is a chance that the Golden Globes live stream will be shown via Facebook. Because the nominations were streamed via Facebook, we’ve got our fingers crossed.
How to Watch the Golden Globes Red Carpet
As usual, E! Entertainment has got you covered when it comes to all things fashion. The E! network will be streaming the Red Carpet event, live, before its time for the main event. Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic will be ready on the Red carpet starting from 6 pm ET/3 pm PT to answer all of your questions about “who’s wearing what/who”.
How to Stream Golden Globes from Abroad
If you’re going to be out of the USA at the beginning of January, getting access to live streaming of the Golden Globes could be a little more tricky, depending on where you’re going. However, that doesn’t mean it will be impossible. In fact, with the proper VPN, you can get full access to the entire Red Carpet and awards show, from wherever you are in the world.
At present, information regarding international live stream Golden Globes is hard to come by but, if we go on the streaming channels that covered the event last year, we can assume that most channels that streamed the event last year, will do so again. Here are a few channels that will definitely be streaming the 77th Golden Globes award ceremony:
- Foxtel, Fox 8 (Australia)
- CCTV6 (China)
- CTV (Canada, Requires a Canadian cable subscription)
If you’re hoping for Golden Globes live stream free, then things are even more complicated, although, those of you with an NBC subscription, a fast internet connection, and a reliable VPN, will be able to log in and watch the ABC coverage as though you were sitting in your own home, surrounded by friends and family.
VPN providers like ExpressVPN can create a fake IP address which will fool any site into believing you’re in the USA even if you’re actually still in Germany after the Berlin Film Festival.
By creating a private network through which you can connect to the internet, a VPN can mask both your geographical location and IP address, giving you the freedom to choose what country you want to connect through so you can gain access to geographically restricted content. This means NBC will think you’re in the US even while you’re outside the country, giving you full access to this glittering Hollywood experience.
Choosing a VPN to Watch the Awards
While we recommend ExpressVPN, there are a number of VPN providers you could select to give you access to free live streaming of this year’s Golden Globes. In our opinion, ExpressVPN is the best because it has a huge network of servers distributed throughout the world, giving you access from the most remote corners of our globe. Additionally, they have excellent security and impressive speeds, meaning that you can enjoy seamless coverage without anyone knowing it.
Although not free, ExpressVPN does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, which you could take advantage of. Having said that we’re so confident that you’ll be blown away by the experience, we predict that you’ll actually want to remain a customer long after your 30 days are up.
Another excellent choice to watch the Golden Globes live stream free is Cyberghost. CyberGhost has one of the widest server bases to choose from, with almost 6,000 servers worldwide. They are also compatible with Windows, Mac, Android, Linux, iOS, Fire TV and extensions for Chrome and Firefox.
NordVPN is another VPN provider that will let you stream Golden Globes from anywhere on the planet. This VPN provider boasts an absolute-zero log policy. This means that they keep no record (at all) of your online activities, keeping you totally and completely private and anonymous while watching the Golden Globes live stream.
How to Watch the Golden Globes Live Stream Free
To be fair, at this stage, there simply aren’t that many options available. We can but hope that the official NBC website will once again reveal its popular The Golden Globes: All-Access feature which, last year, gave viewers free access to red-carpet interviews and a few sneak peeks behind the scenes of the award-giving ceremony itself.
Another alternative is E! News. To gain access to live coverage of the red carpet, all you have to do is download the E! News app and then subscribe to a compatible TV provider. This doesn’t have to be a cable provider, as E! News also works effectively with a variety of online streaming services, including DirectTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu With Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. Even better, most of these service providers offer a free trial, ranging from five to seven days so you can see all the Golden Glboes action and surprises without paying a cent.
For those who prefer not to download another app or share their credit card details with a live streaming company, social media is the way to go. If you’re wondering how to watch the Golden Globes online free, then social media networking sites might be the perfect solution.
As so many people are uploading images and videos of their unique Golden Globes experience, you should be able to get constant updates on the evening’s proceedings, from the red carpet to the top award presentations. Follow The Globes Facebook page for more information and tips on getting in on the action.
If you don’t already have a Reddit account, now might be the time to register as there are bound to be numerous subreddits streaming the event live. Of course, the Golden Globes also have their own page which promises to show the nominations live and will, undoubtedly, include some of the awards ceremony as well.
Twitter will be streaming the event through various channels so, if you have a Twitter account, you can enjoy the show on either your smartphone or any number of other devices. Look out for coverage on The Golden Globes page as well.
A popular choice due to the high-quality of their streaming services, you won’t be alone if you choose to watch the Golden Globes on YouTube. To get a taste of what’s in store, take a look at this latest teaser.
