One of the biggest nights for country music is here and you don’t need an expensive cable package to get it on all the action. You can catch the Academy of Country Music Awards tonight at 8 PM Eastern, and it is available on multiple streaming services and devices. Read on to get in on all the country fun.Antenna

First and foremost, to catch the Academy of Country Music Awards, you need to know which channel it is airing on. The festivities will be live on CBS. Therefore, your antenna should do the trick. To be sure you catch the right signal in your area, go to

CBS All Access

Of course, if you are a CBS All-Access subscriber, seeing as the program will be on CBS, using the app should be a no brainer. If you are new to CBS All-Access and would like to catch original programming like Star Trek: Discovery and the upcoming Twilight Zone, click here for a CBS All-Access free trial. Once you have CBS All-Access, you should be able to watch on streaming devices such as:

  • Roku
  • Apple TV
  • Android TV
  • Fire TV


DIRECTV NOW is typically $35 per month. However, if you are an AT&T Unlimited subscriber, this price will jump down to $10 per month. Be warned, DIRECTV NOW only just started rolling out CBS stations, so this might not be a viable option. If you are interested in checking out DIRECTV NOW, they also offer a 7-day free trial.


Much like DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV just added a bunch of CBS stations, so this might not be the most viable option either. However, if they do carry your local affiliate, jump in on their deal. The first month of fuboTV is $19.99 per month before jumping $44.99.


Hulu Live is almost in every market at this point, making this streaming service a reliable choice to catch CBS.

PlayStation Vue

Much like Hulu, PlayStation Vue has a lot of local affiliates, so getting CBS through this Sony-based service shouldn’t be an issue.
