How to Watch American Music Awards 2019 Without Cable: Live Stream Online from Anywhere

By Gabriela Vatu / September 8, 2019

This year's American Music Awards is drawing close, and it's quite exciting, especially as every year they have a great show we all enjoy. If you want to watch the 2019 American Music Awards online, we are here to help you out.

The first time the American Music Awards aired was back in 1973, and it has taken place every year since then. The show was created by ABC after the network was dropped from broadcasting the Grammy Awards. As a result, the AMAs are far more relaxed than the Grammys, which are considered about just as stuff as the Oscars.

While the Grammy winners are voted by the members of the Recording Academy, the AMAs are decided by fans who get to vote online for their favorites.

For many years, until 2003, the AMAs were held in January, but they were eventually moved to November to attract more viewers, airing out the award season, which is quite busy at the beginning of the year, with both the Grammys and the Oscars scheduled then.

When and Where to Watch American Music Awards?

This year's American Music Awards is going to be held on Sunday, November 24th, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The event will be broadcast by ABC, as per usual, so it's going to be easy to watch the show online.

How Can I Live Stream the 2019 American Music Awards?

We live in the digital era, so it makes sense to also watch the American Music Awards online. PlayStation Vue is a great platform that will help you watch the 2019 American Music Awards quite easily and you can start your 7-day free trial now!. The service comes with a one-week long trial period, so you can change your mind before getting billed. There are four bundles present here - Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra - and they all feature ABC, so you get to pick the one that has the right channel combination or the right price for your budget.

The subscription to PlayStation Vue includes access to five simultaneous streams, as well as the capacity to record up to 500 programs to the cloud. Also included in the price is the ability to watch up to three programs at the same time, on the same screen. If you need to customize your plan, you can add a couple of channel packs and premium networks, and you'll get a better deal for these if you're also a PlayStation Plus subscriber. PlayStation Vue works on PS4, PS3, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, iOS phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, Amazon tablets, and Google Chromecast, as well as the web. (Note: ABC is a channel that broadcasts through local markets, so if you live in an area that does not get ABC coverage, even with Live TV service, you may want to use a VPN. The VPN will help you change your IP address to match those in a different city that does get access to ABC. By doing this, you'll get to watch all channels that are available in the area where your VPN server is. Learn how to use a VPN here.)

Other Ways to Watch American Music Awards on ABC

What Can I Do to Watch American Music Awards Outside of the United States?

Live TV platforms like PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, or Hulu, all have the same problem - they're geoblocked. Let's roll things back a bit, first. While these platforms all operate online, they also have to respect licensing deals. This translates into their inability to allow customers to stream content when outside of the United States. Thankfully, the situation can be easily fixed with the help of a VPN service that can change your IP address. The VPN we recommend our readers is ExpressVPN, which has proven it's worth time and time again over the years. The tool has thousands of servers across the world and dozens of them are in the US only.

Here's what you need to do to use ExpressVPN to watch American Music Awards Outside of the United States:

Can I Watch American Music Awards on ABC's Website?

Yes, that's something you can do since ABC's website does feature a live stream. You will, however, need to log into account to watch the show. In order to do this, you can use credentials from your TV provider, whether we're talking about a cable company or a live TV service, such as PlayStation Vue.

ABC also has the ABC Go app that you can download for your device to watch on the go. The app works on iOS phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Samsung smart TVs, and Amazon Fire TV, and can check them all out here. Keep in mind that both the website and the app are geo-blocked, so if you want to access them when you are outside of the United States, you're going to need to use a VPN to circumvent the blockade. You can find out how to do this by reading here.

Can I Watch American Music Awards with a TV Antenna?

Yes, that is something that you'll be able to do because ABC is a channel that continues to broadcast over the air. This will make it easy for you to watch with a TV antenna. These devices are quite popular among cord-cutters because they are relatively cheap to purchase and they offer free access to dozens of channels.

We advise you to visit a site like NoCable before making any purchases as it can tell you whether or not an antenna is an option for your location and whether or not ABC is part of the channels you can "catch" with the antenna. You will also find details about the distance the channel is being broadcast from, so you can figure out what range to look for in an antenna. Check out our suggested antenna first, since it has some great reviews, but you can also do your own research if you want to.
