How to watch the live broadcast of the VMAs with MTV
MTV owns the broadcast rights to the VMAs, but there are plenty of streaming options to choose from to watch the entire show (plus the pre-show shenanigans).
You can go directly to MTV.com for the VMAs, or you can stream the VMAs to your phone, tablet, or even streaming TV device with the MTV app. The app is available for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, etc.
Either way, you’ll need to provide credentials from your broadcast, cable, or satellite provider to access a live stream of current MTV programming.
