How to watch the 2020 BET Awards live on CBS or BET without cable
Awards shows are back—sort of.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has sidelined most large gatherings for the foreseeable future, Black Entertainment Television is going forward with the 20th BET Awards this weekend as a virtual event. The awards celebrate Black culture and honor achievements in a variety of areas, including movies, TV, music, and sports.
Amanda Seales will host the event, which will include performances from Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne, Chloe X Halle, DaBaby, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, and many others. You can find a full list of performers here.
The 2020 BET Awards are set to begin tonight (Sunday, June 28) at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT and will air simultaneously across ViacomCBS networks including BET, BET Her, and CBS—making this year’s ceremony the first-ever BET Awards to be carried by a national over-the-air broadcast network.
If you’re a cord-cutter who wants to stream the awards live on your TV, computer, or smartphone, you can find some easy ways to do that below.
