The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards airs this Tuesday in Australia. The event is happening live at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, and will be broadcast starting at 8am AEST. Here’s how to watch live!

How To Watch The Emmys Live

Despite the high comedy pedigree of this year’s show, Australia’s free-to-air networks will not be broadcasting the 2018 Emmy’s in Australia. Boo-urns. Instead, you’re going to have to pony up for a Foxtel subscription.

If you’re a die-hard Emmy fan, you could always sign up for a free Foxtel trial and then cancel. Here are the times to mark in your calendar. (All times are for Tuesday, September 18.)

  • 8am: Live from the Red Carpet (E! Channel)
  • 9:30am: Emmys Pre-show (FOX8)
  • 10am: 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (FOX8)
  • 1pm: After Party (E! Channel)

If you’re stuck at work, you’ll also be able to catch a repeat on FOX8 at 7:30pm.
