How to Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards Online From Anywhere: Live Stream the Ceremony

By Lore Apostol / May 15, 2022

This year's Billboard Music Awards are closing in, and the ceremony will soon air. We have all the information on the date, nominees, host, and performances, and the best part is that we will be able to easily watch it all online. This being said, let's see when, where, and how how to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards online from anywhere in the world.

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will feature performances from Travis Scott, Burna Boy, Latto, Megan Thee Stallion, Rauw Alejandro, Florence and the Machine, Maxwell, Morgan Wallen (his first awards show performance since he was barred from attending and performing at various ceremonies in 2021 after he was caught on camera saying the N-word), Silk Sonic (their first performance since they swept four Grammys, including record and song of the year, in April), Ed Sheeran, Becky G, Elle King, and Miranda Lambert. Red Hot Chili Peppers were supposed to perform but will be replaced by Machine Gun Kelly and Dan + Shay instead.

This is Scott's first awards show performance since a crowd crush during his performance at the Astroworld Festival in Houston in November killed 10 people. As previously announced, Mary J. Blige will receive the Billboard Icon Award and will also perform during the event. Hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs, the show will honor the year's top artists on the Billboard charts in 62 categories that you can find in this article.

Doja Cat and Olivia Rodrigo are among the nominees for the Top Artist, the Top Female Artist, and the Top Hot 100 Artist categories. The Weeknd is also nominated for Top Artist, the Top Male Artist, and the Top Hot 100 Artist, adding to other 14 categories.

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air on Sunday, May 15, 2022, and you will be able to watch the entire event on NBC at 5 pm ET / 3 pm PT. The BBMAs will be held in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena this year. Tickets to attend the show are open to the public. Prices per ticket start at $90 and are available for purchase here. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. PT.

How to Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards Online From Anywhere

When you are in your home country, you can easily subscribe to a live TV and streaming platform and watch your favorite content online. The problem appears when you are traveling abroad or even to some other states, as these platforms are geo-restricted due to licensing issues. This means you'll need a capable VPN to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards online. No matter where you are located, a VPN will let you change your IP address to make it seem you are in your home country, and this will help you bypass the geo-blocks and access the streaming service you subscribed to back home.

If you need a recommendation, you should go for ExpressVPN to unblock streaming platforms such as Hulu, Netflix, Peacock, and others. It offers over 3,000 servers in almost 100 countries all over the world, the best encryption protocols to secure your data, and it's extremely popular and easy to use. It comes with a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so you can try ExpressVPN for 30 days RISK-FREE. Moreover, it supports Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, Android TV, PlayStation, Xbox, Smart TVs, and more.

It's extremely simple to get started and create an account with this tool, and you can also enjoy a significant discount when you subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% Discount + 3 Months FREE) on their website and select the annual plan. You need to fill in your details and pay, then you can download and install the VPN app for your device or system. The final step is to open the VPN app to connect to a server in your country and turn it on before accessing the streaming service of choice and tuning in to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards live online from anywhere.

How to Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in the US

Since the ceremony airs on NBC, you will be able to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards without cable pretty easily through a live TV and streaming service that has the NBC network included.

Here's how to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards without cable:

If you can wait a day, the title will be available on the Peacock live TV and streaming platform because it's an NBC original. The service offers an ad-supported Free tier and an upgradable paid Premium tier - the limited-ads Premium tier costs $4.99 per month, and the Premium Plus tier costs $9.99 per month.

Sling TV is one of the most popular live TV platforms thanks to its affordable prices, and it also has several add-ons and premium channels if you want to customize your subscription. You will be able to watch the NBC network in select markets in two of its packs: Blue and Orange + Blue, which start at $35 per month, and you get a 50% discount for the first month on Sling TV right now.

If you're a sports fan, this one is for you - fuboTV offers multiple sports channels besides the regular networks, and all of the plans include NBC, so you can easily watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards online. The cheapest plan starts at $69.99 per month, you also get a 7-day free trial on fuboTV upon subscribing, and several other perks are included.

One of the best deals right now is offered by the Hulu + Live TV service, and this platform offers NBC in select markets, so you can stream the 2022 Billboard Music Awards live online. For the regular price of $69.99 per month, you get the ad-supported Hulu On-Demand library and the Live TV platform, and you also get Disney Plus and ESPN Plus for free as a special deal right now.

If it's NBC you're after, YouTube TV is a great option for you. This service offers live TV from more than 85 channels, and NBC is featured on the channel list. Moreover, it also has NFL, NBA, and MLB networks and several attractive perks. Plans start at $64.99 a month, and you get a 7-day free trial if you're a new customer.

Since almost all of the streaming platforms available in the US are geo-restricted, you will need to get a VPN subscription while traveling to lift any geo-blocks you may run into. You just need to select a server from a location back home and turn on the VPN before accessing the live TV service.

How to Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in the UK

If you live in the UK, you probably already know that you can stream the award ceremony on Peacock since it launched in the UK and Ireland last year as part of the Sky TV and NOW streaming platforms. The NOW streaming platform offers Peacock in the Entertainment Pass plan, which starts at £9.99 per month. You can also enjoy a 7-day free trial upon subscribing if you are a new customer.

This streaming service has geo-restrictions in place since it's not available everywhere, so you may not be able to access your subscription while traveling abroad. To solve this issue, we recommend you turn to a capable VPN that can unblock this service - just select a server from back home before accessing the streaming platform for this to work.

How to Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in Canada

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air live on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV for Canadian fans, and that means you will be able to stream the event on the CTV website and the CTV app. Just log in with your cable provider credentials in order to access the content.

If you are traveling and want to watch the series online, you can still watch the show live when the episodes air. For that to happen, you need to use a VPN, pick a server from a home location, and then open the live TV and streaming service you used back home to watch the series.

Can I Watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in Australia?

At the moment, we cannot seem to find a service that will broadcast or host this event, so we're sorry to inform you that you may not be able to watch the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in Australia. One workaround is to subscribe to a good VPN and then create an account with Peacock to stream the event with the VPN running in the background.
