By Nicole Lyn Pesce

What time the Emmys start, and where to stream the awards if you don't have cable

Television's biggest night is this Sunday -- but what if you don't have a TV antenna or a cable subscription?

We've got you covered.

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards -- which will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer in Los Angeles -- begin broadcasting at 8 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS. So any local CBS stations that you have access to on cable or via antenna will show the awards show live.

But cord-cutters still have plenty of ways to watch, as well, as long as they have a smart TV or a streaming device such as a Roku (ROKU), the Amazon (AMZN) Fire TV stick, an Apple (AAPL) TV or Google (GOOGL) Chromecast.
