The Golden Globes are Sunday. The annual awards show works as a predictor for the Oscars later this year and can be a great opportunity to do a little star watching while you’re getting ideas for movies you should probably add to your watch list pre-Oscars time.

The red carpet is also worth checking out. Last year’s Golden Globes Red Carpet also brought us Fiji Water girl, amongst other things.

The Red Carpet officially kicks off at 6 pm ET, although E! will begin its coverage at 4 pm. At 7 pm NBC is airing an Arrivals Special, and at 8 pm ET the awards show officially begins on NBC.

If you have cable, obviously the easiest way to watch it all is to simply tune in on your television. If don’t, or you’re going to be away from your TV come show time, you still have options:

NBC App

If you have a cable login or can borrow a friend’s credentials, then you can stream NBC’s coverage of the awards and the red carpet through the NBC app.

SlingTV

Sling TVs $US25 ($36)/month Orange package includes NBC. IF you don’t have cable, this is your cheapest option.

YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV

YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV both offer NBC and cost $US40 ($58)-$US45 ($65)/month.

All of the streaming services offer free trials, so if you haven’t used them before you can sign up today and watch the games for free and then cancel your account before you’re being charged.

And worth noting: Not every service offers NBC in every market. Make sure NBC is offered in your particular area before you sign up.
