People’s Choice Awards: How to Watch, What Time and What Channel

For the second consecutive year, the People's Choice Awards will air on E! Network. The ceremony kicks off at 9 p.m. ET, live from the Baker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. E! will start its coverage with a red carpet special hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Live from the Red Carpet will air on E! Network, but the festivities start even earlier online. Those following E! News on Twitter can catch the E! Stream The Red Carpet special, which begins at 5:45 p.m. ET. After that, the fun switches over to traditional television, beginning with the red carpet show.

However, if you are not near a television, you can still stream E! Network online through many online TV platforms like Hulu Plus Live TV, AT&T NOW, Sling, Fubo and YouTube TV. These services often provide limited-time trials before your credit card is charged.
