Where are the Grammys held?

For now, concrete details are far and few between. The Staples Center in Los Angeles has been the home of the Grammys since 2000—with the exception of the 2003 and 2018 ceremonies—but due to the ongoing pandemic and COVID-19 regulations, this year's ceremony will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is located right next door to Staples Center.

List of Grammys 2021 Streaming Services

We mentioned that media streaming services are a great option to watch Grammys. The good thing about these services is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to enjoy the live streaming service. On the contrary, the “Skinny Bundles” in these live streaming services are much more affordable than the cable or TV subscription.


FuboTV has been around for a while in the sports world. People have known it as one of the best providers that focus on soccer and football. Contrary to the nickname, FuboTV offers a wide array of entertainment. It also includes the CBS Channel. If you are already the subscriber of this service, you don’t have to look somewhere else.

It costs $59.99 per month which gives you the freedom to tune in to sixty additional channels. The price of the bundle also includes the cloud DVR Service which allows you to capture the moments of Grammys. You can store it to the cloud DVR service and watch it anytime to relive the actions and moments. The minor downside of this service is that there are only fourteen select markets that work with the Fubotv to get CBS Access. It will take time to put the Grammys coverage nationally. If you can’t hold up the spoiler, you could watch Grammys on-demand.


If you are familiar with AT&T service, then AT&T TV NOW will be an excellent option for you. It is a modern version of the predecessor. AT&T TV NOW comes with a bunch of incredible features that you will hardly resist making such a great experience in watching Grammys.

The platform is easy and straightforward to use. It does not take a long time until you learn a thing or two about the platform. The brand offers various packages in which you can see the details. Of course, you will want to pick one which adds CBS to the bundle. Consider choosing “PLUS,” a low-tier package that only costs you $55 per month. Did we mention that it comes with a 7-day free trial?

You can try AT&T TV NOW for free. Consider registering as a new user before the date of the event so that you can watch Grammys 2021 without paying a single dime.

Sling TV

If you are looking for something more affordable, Sling TV might be your choice. Unfortunately, you won’t find CBS in any bundle of Sling TV. According to the Sling TV officials, CBS is very selective about working with other live streaming services. The CBS struck an agreement with other live streaming services, but not with Sling TV. You will want to exclude this option if your focus is on the CBS.

YouTube TV

As we know, Google has such high standards in making the products and services. That includes the live streaming service called YouTube TV. It is a newborn baby. But it already has tons of subscribers and satisfied customers around the globe.

The package includes CBS. With $64.99 per month, you will be able to enjoy the significant channels and cable networks. It comes with a cloud DVR that allows you to store unlimited content. But keep in mind that the videos you save will disappear after nine months.

The other highlight that we want to share is the account sharing feature. YouTube TV allows up to six Google accounts to own the YouTube TV. However, the service can only be used by up to three reports at the same time. This feature can be a great idea to split the bills with your friends or family so that you don’t have to spend much money on the Grammys coverage.

YouTube TV also works in select markets. So, if you are out of the market, you might experience a blackout. But you can test it out by using the free trial offer. It offers a 7-day free trial. So, it is sensible to register as a new user a week before the event. YouTube TV also works on many devices. You will want to read the full descriptions on their official page.

Hulu Live TV

Hulu Live TV has been very popular with TV shows and entertainment lovers. Many people subscribe to this service because many running shoes are not available on Netflix. Hulu has been evolving from time to time. Now, Hulu with Live TV subscription package is the amplest one for most users.

With only forty bucks per month, you will be able to watch significant channels that broadcast the big events, including the CBS for Grammys. The skinny bundle comes with cloud DVR which allows you to store up to 50 hours of the shows. For an unlimited DVR service, you need to add a few more bucks to the package.

Besides, you will also have the privilege to explore and use the library of on-demand content. It is a complete bundle that you want if you want your favorite shows watched in one-stop. For the binge-watchers, Hulu with Live TV is a go.

But just like other media streaming services, CBS in Hulu is only available in select markets. Outside of the area, you will need to be patient to watch it after a day or so. If that is the case, you will need to ban the spoilers in your social media feed or emails. You don’t want other people to spoil the results to you and ruin the element of surprise.
