How To Stream The Tonys Online So You Don't Miss Any Host Banter, Performances, Or Celebrity Guests
There are about a thousand reasons to watch the Tonys on Sunday — I mean, Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming are co-hosting the she-bang... so why wouldn't you watch? At this point, it's not even a question of should or should not, it's just a given — and all that's left is to figure out a viewing strategy. Will you watch it live? DVR it? Stream it? And if you're going to stream the 2015 Tony Awards it, what are your options?
Seriously, though if the combined powers of Chenoweth and Cumming aren't enough to convince you, the festivities also happen to boast some pretty darn epic presenters: Neil Patrick Harris, Bradley Cooper, Rose Byrne, and Taye Diggs are all among this year's batch of star-powered attendees — and let's not even start on how history's going to go down with all of the performances. You can catch Kelli O'Hara, Ruthie Ann Miles, and Ken Watanabe singing a song from The King and I, and Josh Groban will have a record-breaking 175 performers joining him onstage. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
In other words, let's get that viewing strategy worked out, stat!
The Tony Awards Website
What better place to start then the actual Tony Awards website? They've got lots of special features on there, including video clips, printable ballots, and yes, an online stream (or as they inexplicably choose to spell it, an "on-line" stream).
CBS Live will also be livestreaming the show — the only catch is, there's a subscription fee. That said, they do offer a one-week free trial, so if you're really set on streaming the Tonys from CBS, you can still do it without your wallet being any the wiser.
The Tonys Second Screen
If you're interested in going the extra mile, the Tonys website also has a livestream of the press room — so you can catch up with what all the winners have to say, post-trophy! It might be tough to juggle two livestreams at once, but if you have enough computers at hand, it should, at the very least, be a good way to pass the time during the commercial breaks.
Bottom line? No matter what method you decide to go with, get ready to sing along.
