Other Ways to Watch the Primetime Emmy Awards on Fox

What Can I Do to Watch the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards Outside of the United States?

If you'll be traveling right when the Emmy Awards are on, you can use a VPN to watch the show. fuboTV, Sling TV, and PlayStation Vue are all geoblocked because they have to abide by licensing deals so they can't allow broadcasts outside of the country. Using a VPN will help you out because it will change your IP address to match those in the US, so it will effectively trick the system. We can recommend you go with ExpressVPN, which is one of the best on the market and offers thousands of servers all over the world and dozens in the US alone.

Here's everything you should know before watching the Primetime Emmy Awards with ExpressVPN:

Can I Watch the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards on Fox's Website?

Fox features a live stream on its website so you're going to be able to use it to watch the show if you want to. The catch is that you need to log into an account do to so, so you'll need credentials from your TV provider. Whether you've switched to fuboTV or are still on cable, you can use either to log in. Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and other live TV platforms can also be of help.

You can also download the Fox app to watch on the go. The Fox app works on Android and iOS mobile devices, Smart TVs from LG and Samsung, Sony, Philips, as well as Android TVs and Apple TVs. You can also make it work on Google Chromecast and Xbox One. (Note: The site and the app are also subject to a geoblockade due to licensing deals so you'll need to use a VPN to circumvent the issue. Click here to learn how to do this.)

Can I Watch the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards with a TV Antenna?

Since Fox is a channel that continues to broadcast through local channels, you'll be able to use a TV antenna to watch it all. TV antennas are super popular among cord-cutters because they offer access to local channels for free and the devices themselves are pretty cheap too.

Check out NoCable before making any purchases, because the site will tell you which channels are available in your area over the air, as well as how far they are broadcasting from so you can choose the right range for your device.
