This winter is full of must-see live TV events. From awards season to major sporting events, we want to help cord-cutters make the most of live TV in 2023.
This winter’s live TV schedule is already off to an exciting start, with the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards that occurred in January. We love movies, so we’ll be following along with the rest of the 2023 awards season as winter continues. We also made some of our own predictions about which movies will be favorites at this year’s awards shows.
Sports fans also have plenty to be excited about, with the Super Bowl and related events coming up. Read on for all the biggest events this winter, and learn how to stream them with or without cable.
65th Annual Grammy Awards
Music lovers rejoice, because the artists you’ve supported all year are about to get their due. The 2023 Grammy Awards ceremony will be held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles and will feature celebrity appearances, performances, and, of course, winner announcements. Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” will return for the third year in a row to present the awards. This year’s nominees were announced in November, and include ABBA, Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Lizzo, and Harry Styles. A complete list available on the Grammys website.
Super Bowl LVII
The biggest sporting event of the year is here, which means it’s time to break out the beer and nachos! Everyone loves the hype that comes with the Super Bowl, and this year’s event won’t disappoint. It will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, making it the fourth Super Bowl hosted in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Country singer Chris Stapleton will kick off the event with the national anthem.
This year’s halftime show is also buzzworthy. Headliner Rihanna returns to the stage for her first live performance in over five years. Don’t miss a minute of this exciting Super Bowl! Tune in to FOX or fuboTV on Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET. Cord-cutters may want to check out all the ways they can watch FOX without cable.
Puppy Bowl XIX
Add some adorable fluff to your Super Bowl celebration by tuning in to Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XIX. The event aims to raise awareness about pet adoption, with four-legged competitors hailing from animal shelters across the country. The dogs will chase each other across a mini gridiron as “rufferee” Dan Schachner oversees the challenge. The event will also feature a Kitty Halftime Show and play-by-play commentary from Steve Levy and Taylor Rooks. Eleven dogs and three cats will be available for adoption throughout the show.
Tune in on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 12, at 2 p.m. ET. The show will be broadcast on Animal Planet and streamed simultaneously on Discovery Plus.
Check out the most hyped UFC match of the winter. UFC 285: Jones vs. Gane will be hosted at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The competition for the vacant title is between former two-time UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former interim champion Ciryl Gane. The stakes are high for UFC fans. If Jones wins, it will make him the eighth multidivision champion, and a Gane victory would make him the UFC’s first French undisputed champion. The event will also feature a women’s flyweight championship and women’s strawweight championship.
Tune in to UFC 285: Jones vs. Gane on Saturday, March 4. The main card is at 10 p.m. ET, and you can catch it on ESPN Plus pay per view or online at ESPN Plus. Fans can find out how to watch more UFC without cable.
Screen Actors Guild Awards
Awards season continues with the live broadcast of the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, Feb. 26, at 8 p.m. ET. Ashley Park and Haley Lu Richardson revealed this year’s nominees on Instagram Live in January. Big titles among this year’s nominees include “Better Call Saul,” “Ozark,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and “The Banshees of Inisherin.” Find out if your favorites take home the gold by tuning in to the live event. A host has yet to be announced, making it the event’s third consecutive year without an official host.
Netflix will stream the 29th SAG Awards on its YouTube channel starting at 8 p.m. ET.
95th Academy Awards
Other than the Super Bowl, the Academy Awards are the biggest and most exciting live TV event each winter. Hype builds throughout awards season to this headliner event. This year, the ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The Oscars were without a host in 2020 and 2021 and featured three co-hosts last year, so this year’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, is a welcome change for viewers. It will be the third time Kimmel has hosted the awards. Favorites this year include “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and “The Fablemans.”
