Celebrating the best of daytime television, “The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” are set to kick off tonight, May 5, at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA, but you won’t be able to view it on traditional TV. So let Soap Opera Network break everything down for you, including how to safely and legally watch the program.
Without a cable or broadcast network since 2015, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has once again made this year’s telecast available exclusively online, ensuring fans of soap operas “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless,” talk shows, digital dramas, game shows and more, are able to tune in to catch all glitz and the glamour from the Red Carpet all the way through the reading of the final envelope.
The show will be live-streamed via the organization’s official social network sites, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (Periscope) and YouTube. The broadcast will also be made available through the KNEKT Network (www.KNEKT.tv) on Apple TV, Roku, iOS and Android devices.
