  • The 2020 SAG Awards air on Sunday, January 19.
  • The show will be broadcast live on both TNT and TBS, but there are a few ways to watch without cable.

The 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards will officially air on Sunday night, honoring the year's biggest talent in TV and film.

Echoing the Oscars, there will not be a host for the ceremony this year. But with celebs in attendance like Jennifer Lopez, Sterling K. Brown, Helena Bonham Carter, and Leonardo DiCaprio, it's safe to say our attention would have been elsewhere regardless.

As we anticipate the big night, and look out for some of our entertainment favorites like Little Women, The Crown, and Big Little Lies, here's exactly how you can watch the show and not miss out on a second of the star-studded night.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on both TNT and TBS on Sunday, January 19 starting at 8 p.m. ET. You can check the exact channel by looking at your local listings. If you don't have the option of watching on an actual television, but you still have cable, you can stream using both networks' websites and mobile apps. You'll just need your cable provider's online streaming service log-in information.

What if I don't have cable?

If you have Apple TV, Roku, or Amazon Fire you're in luck. You'll be able to watch the live SAG Awards using these streaming apps. Both YouTube and Hulu's live streaming services also offer access to TNT and TBS.

YouTubeTV is $49.99 a month, while Hulu + Live TV is $54.99 monthly. But if you're worried about the cost, know that each have a free trial period option to choose from before you're officially charged. Just make sure to double-check the terms.
