CMT is a channel that is found in most cable packages. However, you’re not tied to watching the hottest stars in country music with an expensive cable bill. You can get in on all the fun with these streaming services.
What is the CMT Awards?
While country music has a litany of award shows, the CMT Awards is one of the most heralded. It’s a great mix of tradition and current pop culture. This year’s show will be hosted by Little Big Town for the second year in a row.
Taking the stage in Nashville will be a who’s who in t he music scene, including:
- Keith Urban
- Carrie Underwood
- Zac Brown Band
- Sheryl Crow
To get in on the action, you will need to either catch a livestream at 8:00 PM EDT. Otherwise, you are going to need a streaming service that also offers cloud DVR. Some give this perk for free, while other streaming services will give you an upcharge. Here is everything you need to know about watching the 2019 CMT Awards online.
How to Watch CMT Awards with Philo
If CMT is one of your primary channels and you don’t watch much of anything else, Philo is the most economical way to watch the CMT Awards. Philo is a single bundle service. You get 58 channels for just $20 per month, following a seven-day free trial.
In addition, Philo offers unlimited cloud DVR storage for free. The only catch is you must watch the content within 30 days.
How to Watch CMT Awards with Sling TV
The next economical option is Sling TV. With Sling, you have three different options to choose from. They all include CMT.
These options are:
- Sling Orange ($25)
- Sling Blue ($25)
- Sling Orange and Blue ($40)
Both packages have a blend of channels and then some that are exclusive. The major difference between the two is the number of devices that can watch the service simultaneously. Orange offers you one stream, while Blue is good for three devices. If you subscribe to Sling Orange and Blue, you get four simultaneous streams.
One pitfall to Sling TV for CMT Awards is that cloud DVR isn’t complementary. You can get this popular service for a $5 per month charge.
