Can I Live Stream the 2020 CMT Music Online?

If you're hoping to watch the CMT Music orders online, there are quite a few ways for you to do that. Live TV platforms have been around for a few years, and they make it so much easier for you to cut the cord and switch to watching TV online exclusively. One of our favorite live TV platforms to play with is Sling TV, which is highly versatile, as it features a lot of bundles.

There are three bundles available, namely Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue. You need to be aware that Blue subscribers get three simultaneous streams, and Orange + Blue Subscribers get four of them. However, Orange subscribers can only watch content on one device at a time, which can be rather upsetting for many of you, so it's good to know ahead of time.

CMT is part of the Comedy Extra channel pack that costs an additional $5 per month and enables you to watch quite a few channels, CMT included. You can get the bundle regardless of which bundle you went for, so that's a massive plus for you.

Sling TV works on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, and many others. So you should definitely take this into account as well.

While Sling TV is definitely a platform that you want to use, there are others you might be interested in as well.

Live TV platforms are geo-blocked. So if you're going to travel abroad, you'll need a VPN. You can read more about it by continuing the article.

How to Watch the 2020 CMT Music Awards From Anywhere?

Whenever you travel the world, you need to be aware that live TV platforms and streaming services from the United States are all geo-blocked, so you cannot access them as easily as you do when you are at home. We understand this can be quite annoying, but it's something that happens all the time, so you should be well aware of the situation.

A VPN can route your internet connection through its own servers and assign a new IP address to your device, which will make the site you are accessing believe you are in a different country. In our situation, you'll need to appear to be in the United States rather than anywhere else in the world.

We recommend you use ExpressVPN, which is a really great tool that has thousands of servers all over the world and some great privacy features - which will certainly come in handy. You need to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), get the apps for your device, and find a server in the United States so you can connect to it. Once the connection is established, you can load Sling TV and start streaming The CMT Music Awards on CMT.

Don't forget that this tool offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can take advantage of it and get a subscription without any worries.
