How To Stream Harry Styles' Performance At the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Because The Models Won't Be The Only Angels On That Stage
The glitz and glam may be the most anticipated part of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but it's a big attraction for music lovers, too. And this year, One Direction fans will want to know how to stream Harry Styles' VS Fashion Show performance, which was pre-taped with the rest of the event on Sunday, Nov. 19 in Shanghai, China.
The gig caps off a momentous year for the "Sign of the Times" singer, who in May released his self-titled solo debut. He's since embarked on his first headlining tour (and first one on his own) since 1D went on hiatus at the beginning of 2016, and he's set to play over 80 concerts from now until July 2018. The VS stop is a particularly big get, as he's following in the footsteps of high-profile artists like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Kanye West. Add that to his acting debut in Dunkirk and Saturday Night Live performance from April, and it's another major step toward solidifying his solo career.
Though the show doesn't officially air until Nov. 28, a few details have already leaked online, like Styles' fittingly angelic entrance, or the fact that he high fived model Karlie Kloss as she strutted down the runway. He also had to face three of his rumored former flames: Sara Sampaio, Georgia Fowler, and Nadine Leopold. As reported by People, he was spotted with at a hotel with Sampaio, now 26, back in the summer of 2015, while Leopold, now 23, was seen celebrating Styles' birthday with him in February of the same year. Fowler was linked to Styles around the same time, but earlier this year shut down speculation that Styles' single, “Kiwi,” was inspired by her, referring to him to MTV as a "friend." Even if there is any truth to the gossip, it seems Styles managed to avoid any encounters like The Weeknd and Bella Hadid's icy run-in at last year's show.
According to AOL, among the songs Styles played were "Kiwi" and "Only Angel" — both from his May record — and some footage of the latter has even popped up online.
Another plus? The pre-taping means there's plenty of time to figure out a game plan for streaming.
CBS All Access
If you don't have a TV but do have a CBS All Access account, you can watch live with a number of different devices, including laptop, smartphone, Xbox, tablet/iPad, Roku, Amazon Fire, and more. You can also register for the free one-week trial to test it out, but just remember to cancel before your time is up. Otherwise, you can continue enjoying CBS programming with a subscription of $9.99/month commercial-free or $5.99/month with commercials.
Hulu Live TV
As of May, new and existing Hulu subscribers can now watch live TV via the streaming service, too. At $39.99/a month, it's significantly more expensive than All Access, but it lets you enjoy content from across over 50 networks, including CBS, and it does come with a free seven-day trial. Unfortunately, it's only available for U.S. viewers, so if you're international, you'll have to try one of the other options.
Earlier this year, YouTube unveiled its live tv platform, which gives members access to 53 channels — including CBS. It, too, comes with a free trial, but at 30 days, it's substantially longer than both All Access and Hulu. Once your complimentary trial is up, a subscription is $35/month, which is roughly half the cost of regular cable, depending on what kind of package you have.
Catch Styles — along with fellow performers Miguel, Jane Zhang, and Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. — when the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs Nov. 28 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
