If you've ever found yourself having a hard time keeping track of when every major music award show is then you are not alone. I have, on more than one occasion, realized that I missed an awards show or tuned into one well into the program because I didn't know what time it started. Thankfully, I have finally found a website that lists all of the major Music Award Shows dates and TV schedules so I'll never be late to the party again.
One thing I noticed is how many music award shows that ABC airs. They air four of the nine biggest music award shows and have begun making them readily available for online streaming (if you have a current cable internet subscription) and adding them to HULU (with a HULU subscription) at a later date.
CBS also airs more than one music award show and they also are moving towards making them available for online streaming. I will warn that CBS is moving in a "subscription service" direction with their live online streaming, but if you time it correctly then you will be able to stream your first music awards show for free because they do offer a one week trial for free.
The other major music awards show is MTV's Video Music Awards. It is broadcast live on MTV and is also streamed online for free. MTV has said that users who watch it online will be given additional access to backstage coverage, un-aired audience shots, and bonus coverage that won't be available on TV. They are also airing it live on the MTV App, so if you are not near your television or computer then you don't have to miss it.
