How to live stream the Golden Globes 2019 in Australia
Join hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg for the 76th Golden Globe awards from the comfort of your couch.
Love 'em or hate 'em, this year's Golden Globe Awards provide a good refresher on the top-shelf TV shows and movies released last year you may have otherwise missed. Rubbing shoulders with bigger commercial successes like A Star is Born and Black Panther, you'll find Spike Lee's outstanding BlacKkKlansman, the hilarious and tragic The Favourite from Yorgos Lanthimos and the breakout hit Crazy Rich Asians from Jon M. Chu.
While the celebs knock back champagne at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA, eager Australians will be live streaming in a discrete browser window at their desks or from the comfort of their couch.

Where to live stream the 2019 Golden Globe awards in Australia
If you're a Foxtel or Foxtel Now subscriber, your safest bet is to catch the event on FOX8. FOX8 is the only official option for streaming the event live in Australia.
If you're already a subscriber, FOX8 comes included in the Entertainment channel pack (which is included with every subscription).
If you're not a Foxtel subscriber and need access as soon as possible, your best bet would be Foxtel Now's 10-day free trial. This will allow you to live stream the event on a huge variety of devices (including laptop and mobile) and you're not obligated to continue your subscription when the 10-day trial is up (just remember to cancel before the 10-day mark to avoid paying any unwanted fees).
If you can't watch it live, you can catch up later tonight when the show repeats at 7:30 pm AEDT on FOX8.

Option 2: Unofficial YouTube live streams
There are a huge variety of anonymous punters on social media platforms, forums and YouTube who will be offering live streams of the event absolutely free. However, we'd caution against clicking on unfamiliar links found in forums like Reddit or your social media platform of choice. If you're going down this route, we'd recommend doing a quick search on YouTube for an available live stream of the 2019 Golden Globes.
We found a few working streams at the time of writing but there's a high chance they will be pulled down as the night continues. Still, YouTube is a much safer bet than most dodgy live stream links.
Option 3: Use a VPN to access NBC in the US
If you're already using a VPN to use Hulu, YouTube TV or DirectTV, each of those services will be live streaming the event via the NBC channel. If you're not already using a VPN, we'd advise against it. VPNs can be a hassle to set up and you're almost certainly breaching the network's terms of service (which can result in an account suspension if you have paid for any of the above services).
