How to Watch the 77th Annual Tony Awards for Free

Share

Some of our favorite actors, singers, dancers (and triple-threats who can do it all) will step into the spotlight once again.

The 77th Annual Tony Awards are streaming live from the Lincoln Center in New York City this weekend. The Tony Awards are hosted by the talented Ariana DeBose, a member of the original Hamilton cast, for a third year in a row and we know an epic night is in store. 

The Tony Awards will be broadcast on CBS and stream live on Paramount+ with Showtime starting at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 16, 2024.

Hell’s Kitchen (featuring songs by Alicia Keys) and an acclaimed play, Stereophonic, lead the Tony nominations with 13 each. The Outsiders based on the novel (and the later adapted hit film) has 12 nominations, followed by Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, starring Fantastic Beasts’ Eddie Redmayne. Steven Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along essentially flopped when it was introduced in 1981, but the latest production with Daniel Radcliffe and Jonathan Groff has been quite the success with seven Tony nominations.

When are the 2024 Tony Awards?

The 77th Annual Tony Awards will air on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

What channel are the 2024 Tony Awards airing on?

The 77th Annual Tony Awards will air on CBS and stream live on Paramount+ with Showtime.

How to watch the 2024 Tony Awards without cable:

The easiest and most affordable way to watch the Tony Awards live is with a Paramount+ with Showtime account, which will live stream the 77th Annual Tony Awards from Lincoln Center. Paramount+ with Showtime costs $12 per month, but right now eligible customers can take advantage of their free seven-day trial.

Sign Up for Paramount+

Paramount+ is not your only option for streaming the Tony Awards live on Sunday for free. There are also live streaming services that offer CBS, including Hulu + Live TV and FuboTV. These services are used in lieu of cable, which makes them more expensive than Paramount+ — however, both these providers offer a free trial to new and eligible customers, so if you sign up for either one on June 16 to watch the ceremony, you can cancel the plan after the show to watch the Tony Awards for free.
