Want to watch music’s biggest night, but not near a TV? No problem — CBS, the network broadcasting the Grammys, has offered options to live stream the annual telecast.

The awards start with a pre-telecast ceremony at 12:30 p.m. PST, where winners are announced at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles in 83 categories. This early show will be available at grammy.com/live and on CBS.com.

As for the big show, the Grammys will kick off at 5 p.m. PST at the Staples Center. Along with broadcasting on CBS, the ceremony will be available for live stream on CBS.com and the CBS All Access app.

CBS is looking to capitalize on the Grammys by offering a one-week free trial of its CBS All Access streaming service, which generally costs $5.99 a month. However the live TV stream is only available in the 130 markets where the local CBS affiliate is signed on as a CBS All Access partner. (Click here for a complete list of markets).

For those markets that are on board, the live stream will be available on Apple TV, desktop, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire, Xbox 360 and Android, iOS and Windows phones and tablets.

The year’s top Grammy nominees include pop star Taylor Swift, rapper Kendrick Lamar and pop/hip-hop artist the Weeknd. LL Cool J will return to host.
