Tony Awards How to Watch and Stream the 2024 Tony Awards

Whether watching in the U.S. or overseas, get ready for Broadway's biggest night with these TV and streaming options.

With just a few days to go until the 77th annual Tony Awards—set for June 16 at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center—Playbill has all the details on how to watch this year's ceremony. Whether catching the live CBS broadcast on TV or streaming live, what follows is everything you need to be ready for the big night.

The Tony Awards Pre-Show
For the fourth year in a row, Tony night is being split into two broadcasts: a pre-show celebration of the season and the main ceremony. 

The 90-minute pre-show will be hosted by Julianne Hough and Utkarsh Ambudkar, but organizers have been scant with details beyond that. Theatre fans will just have to wait for June 16 to find out! If it's like last year, we can expect some award categories to be given out during the pre-show. You'll want to keep up on your phone or computer to stay up to date with the latest in everything Tony Awards June 16, including anything notable that happens during commercial breaks.

The pre-show will begin at 6:30 PM ET, streaming live on Pluto TV. If you're not familiar with that streamer, it's one of a handful of completely free streaming services, so everyone should be good to go there. You may have to create an account if you are streaming it on a TV, but that's free, too. The Tony Awards pre-show will air on the streamer's Pluto ET channel. You can download the Pluto TV app onto your devices or you can stream Act One from your desktop computer, so you really have no excuse to not tune in.

The 77th Annual Tony Awards
The Tony Awards ceremony proper will follow the Act One pre-show, hosted as it was the last two years by West Side Story Oscar winner Ariana DeBose. Unlike last year, this ceremony will be scripted. But it's still live TV, so you never know what might happen! What we do know is that lots of Tony Awards will be given out, and we'll get performances from all of the currently running Best Musical and Best Revival of a Musical nominees (including Hell's KitchenIllinoiseThe OutsidersSuffsWater for ElephantsCabaretMerrily We Roll Along, and The Who's Tommy) along with Best Play nominee Stereophonic.

As for how to watch, the three-hour awards ceremony will air live on CBS and stream simultaneously on Paramount+ (for subscribers of Paramount+ with Showtime only) from 8 PM ET. The broadcast will also be available to stream on demand on Paramount+ for all membership tiers following the live stream. But if you want to stream it live, you might want to upgrade your Paramount+ subscription.

Another option is any streaming cable service that carries a local CBS affiliate—like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, FuboTV, and a host of others. These won't offer on demand access to the ceremony after the live broadcast, but they will let you stream the Tonys live.

Outside the U.S.
If you're not within the United States, you may not have access to the above platforms, but there are international partners broadcasting the Tony Awards around the world. 

Latin America, Central, and South America
AMC's Film & Arts channel will broadcast the awards live.

WOWOW will stream both parts of the Tony Awards broadcast live beginning June 17 at 7:30 AM JPN.

You can also keep up with the latest from the ceremonies with Playbill's live, up-to-the-minute updates at and on the Playbill homepage.
