MTV VMAs 2017 Live Stream: How to Watch The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, airing live from Inglewood, Calif., are Sunday, Aug. 27 at 8 p.m. Eastern time on MTV. (The show also simulcasts on MTV’s fellow Viacom channels: VH1, Comedy Central, Spike, TV Land, CMT and Logo.) Expect everything to wrap up around 11 p.m.
The MTV VMAs, which began in 1984, honor the top music videos from June 25, 2016, to June 23, 2017. The VMAs are known for their moonman trophies, but this year, gender has been taken out of the equation and there will be no gender-specific categories (meaning, for example, that best new male artist and best new female artist have been abolished to become best new artist.)
This year’s MTV Video Music Awards will host some of the industry’s biggest names – and some of the most well-documented, longstanding feuds to date could come into play.
How to watch: Those with cable can tune into MTV beginning at 6:15 p.m. ET, with red carpet arrivals and several performances to warm up the night. Those without a TV can stream the awards show live on MTV’s live TV site, which requires a cable login for access. The MTV app is also free for viewers with a cable login, and is available on iTunes/Apple TV, Google Play, Roku, Xbox One, Amazon, Chromecast and more.
