How To Stream The 2015 MTV EMAs To Get In On The International Action

I am someone who lives for award shows, which is why by the time October rolls around, I'm in serious withdrawal. Where's the red carpet? Where are the gorgeous gowns? Where is Kanye West and his confusing yet brilliant speeches? Fortunately, MTV has a remedy for that: The 2015 European Music Awards. This year, the show — which the network is touting as their most "cute and badass" awards, obvs — is coming to us straight from Milan, where it will be hosted by Ed Sheeran (who is by far my favorite European individual, musical or otherwise) and Ruby Rose. And although it usually lives in the shadow of the VMAs, which are always huge, this might be the bigger MTV awards show this year. That's why if you can't catch Sunday night's broadcast on TV, you should definitely stream the 2015 MTV EMAs.

From everything MTV has shared about the EMAs so far, this definitely isn't an award show you're going to want to miss — but what if you have no choice? It's more common now than ever for people to cancel their cable in favor of online streaming, while others just might not be near a TV on Sunday at 8 p.m. If that applies to you, never fear. You can definitely stream the EMAs, and you actually have a few different options to choose from this year.

First of all, there's the coolest option: The "virtual reality" live stream via the MTV EMA app. All you have to do is download the app, and you'll be able to watch the red carpet and the actual show live. Depending on where on the screen you decide to swipe, you'll be able to pick your own viewing experience. Something cool going on to the the left? You can choose to look over there instead, just like you would if you were actually there in real life. Um, count me in... and I have cable.

If that's not quite your speed and you'd rather watch the show the traditional way, that works, too. MTV usually streams their award shows on their own site, so if the network follows the precedent it set last year, there will be an HD stream here on the official EMA site when it's showtime.

But what if all else fails, and you end up missing the show entirely? Well, if you do have cable, MTV frequently replays award shows in the days afterward, and already has reruns of the 2015 EMAs scheduled for Sunday at 10 p.m., Monday at 8 and 11 p.m., and Thursday at 1 a.m.

Now all you need is some snacks, a bottle of wine, and a cozy place to sit down with your computer and stream the 2015 MTV EMAs.
